Daily Briefing Dec. 6: Uptick in West Bank TikTok attacks; COVID vaccine study

Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian discusses West Bank intel and Iron Beam project as health reporter Nathan Jeffay talks side effects of COVID shots and women’s health research

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian and health reporter Nathan Jeffay join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Fabian discusses comments made by top military intelligence official Amit Saar at a recent military think tank conference, positing that Israel needs to better understand the causes of the recent West Bank attacks, often carried out by younger, frustrated Palestinians using firearms and posting their attacks on social media platform TikTok.

Jeffay talks about an Israeli study regarding the psychosomatic side effects of COVID vaccinations and how this affects those gearing up for their next boosters.

Fabian explains the partnership between the US company Lockheed Martin and Israel’s Rafael weapons manufacturer, which are developing a laser interception system with mutual investment and development teams from both companies.

Jeffay talks about an Israeli sociology study finding that gynecological research has overlooked women who are going through menopause or are post-menopause.
