Daily Briefing July 4: Day 272 — UK set to elect new PM who celebrates Shabbat

Editor David Horovitz on recent Hezbollah rocket barrages, freeing of Shifa Hospital head to Gaza and lack of hostage release deal, and a long weekend of elections

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.

Editor David Horovitz joins host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s episode.

The Hezbollah terror group launched more than 200 rockets and some 20 drones at northern Israel on Thursday midday. What do we know about any damage?

Israel said Wednesday evening that it had received Hamas’s response to the latest truce-hostage deal outline, and would evaluate the document before replying. What do we know about any new changes or shifts in position?

The Shin Bet security service has reportedly reprimanded the senior official who was responsible for signing off on the release of Gaza City’s Shifa Hospital director Mohammad Abu Salmiya from Israeli prison earlier this week. Horovitz unravels this knotty situation.

It’s an election long weekend with the UK, France and Iran going to the polls. Horovitz discusses each nation separately.
