Daily Briefing Jan. 2 – Do rockets from Gaza signify some kind of shift?

Military correspondent Judah Ari Gross and Arab affairs reporter Aaron Boxerman discuss what’s behind the rockets fired from Gaza over the weekend

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 Judah Ari Gross and Arab Affairs reporter Aaron Boxerman join host Jessica Steinberg.

Gross and Boxerman discuss the possible reasons why two rockets were fired from Gaza, landing off the Tel Aviv coast on Saturday morning, followed by retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza by the IDF during which Gazan terrorists targeted Israeli military helicopters early Sunday morning.

The two talk about Israel-Hamas relations, seven months after May’s 11 days of fighting, the current ceasefire, and the possible role of a Palestinian prisoner who has been on a hunger strike for 137 days.
