Tune in Sunday through Thursday to hear ToI editors and reporters quickly catch you up on what’s important today

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.

Today’s panel comprises Palestinian affairs correspondent Aaron Boxerman and investigative reporter Simona Weinglass, along with host Raoul Wootliff.

On today’s show, as a new coalition emerges, we look at the reactions to a possible Prime Minister Naftali Bennett from both the Palestinians and Arab Israelis.

How does the Palestinian Authority view the likely new government? What of the Arab Israeli parties in the Knesset? Could we see Ra’am in the coalition?

And, following the recent hostilities between Israel and Hamas and other Gaza terror groups, we look at how the conflict played out online and how various players are manipulating social media to spread fake news.

Discussed articles include:

Palestinians happy to see Netanyahu go, but fear more of the same in Bennett

Lapid, Bennett said hoping to tell Rivlin Tuesday they can form government

Ra’am chief meets Shaked, reportedly demands deputy interior minister role

With Israel and Hamas @war, algorithms and fake accounts fueled #hatred online
