Daily Briefing July 4: PA hands Abu Akleh bullet over to US; ice cream spat ends

US reporter Jacob Magid on the transfer of the bullet that killed the Al Jazeera journalist, plus Ben & Jerry’s boycott; tech editor Ricky Ben-David looks at German Bayer in Israel

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.

US reporter Jacob Magid and tech editor Ricky Ben-David join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Magid discusses the decision to finally hand over the bullet that killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh to the US and what could happen next. (The bullet was reportedly examined at the US embassy, with Israelis present, on Sunday and returned to the PA.)

Ben-David looks at plans to open a cybersecurity development center in Israel as part of German pharmaceutical giant Bayer’s global cybersecurity operations.

Magid speaks about the latest chapter in the legal debate over Ben & Jerry’s Israel and Unilever, following the settlement boycott that began a year ago and has ended with Unilever pulling out of Israel.

Ben-David looks at the government approval of NIS 4 million to back academic research for new alternative protein technologies.

Steinberg previews a Tel Aviv Museum of Art exhibit about photojournalist Micha Bar-Am, a gripping video and audio installation covering Israel’s history.
