Daily Briefing June 25: Will the IDF really treat settler violence as ‘terrorism’?

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur on bureaucratic reasons why life is more difficult for the Palestinians; military correspondent Emanuel Fabian on five days of vigilante attacks

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.

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and military correspondent Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Yesterday, during Shabbat, several dozen settler vigilantes rampaged for the fifth consecutive day following Tuesday’s fatal Palestinian terror shooting, this time through the Palestinian West Bank village of Umm Safa, setting fire to vehicles and homes. What else do we know about this attack and where was the IDF?

Rettig Gur speaks at length about how Israel is failing to follow through on “managing” or “shrinking” the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. What are some “boring” bureaucratic ways in which Palestinians are being blocked from basic necessities such as electricity and sewage?

Discussed articles include:

Settlers riot in another Palestinian village; IDF spokesman: ‘Shameful acts of terror’
