Daily Briefing Feb 3: Day 120 – US leads effort to draw up a day-after plan for Gaza

US bureau chief Jacob Magid on the newly formed ‘contact group,’ Biden administration sanctions against settler violence and scenes from Chicago’s passage of a ceasefire resolution

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 20-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world.

Today is Day 120 of the war. US bureau chief Jacob Magid joins host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s episode.

The US is advancing a “contact group” with Middle East allies aimed at coalescing around a united policy for managing the Gaza Strip after the Israel-Hamas war. Which countries are in it and what are the aims?

US President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Thursday declaring a national emergency that allows him to implement new measures to combat settler violence, including sanctions concurrently announced against four Israeli extremists who carried out acts of violence in the West Bank. What’s the impetus?

The Chicago City Council on Wednesday narrowly adopted a resolution calling for ceasefire in Gaza, becoming the largest municipal body in the US to pass such a measure. Who brought the proposal and what was the scene there?
