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 reporter Emanuel Fabian and legal and settlements reporter Jeremy Sharon join host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s podcast.

Three combat soldiers in the Bardelas Battalion tasked with guarding the border with Egypt were shot and killed yesterday by an Egyptian police officer. We hear about the timeline of the incident in which Staff Sgt. Ori Yitzhak Iluz, Staff Sgt. Ohad Dahan and Sgt. Lia Ben Nun were killed.

An estimated 30,000 people marched in solidarity with Jerusalem’s LGBTQ community on Thursday. And, despite threats earlier in the week, it seemed to go off without a hitch. Sharon shares what he saw, heard — and smelled — at the march.

Former Supreme Court justice Yaakov Turkel, who served with distinction in the judiciary for 38 years, died last week at the age of 88. We learn how he too was an ally of the gay community and other key points of his legacy.
