Daily Briefing Mar 1: Day 147 – Chain of events of deadly stampede in Gaza unraveled

Military reporter Emanuel Fabian on disaster surrounding aid convey, terrorist shooting in Eli killing two; health reporter Renee Ghert-Zand on women in war, man-made testicles

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.

Today is Day 147 of the war with Hamas. Military reporter Emanuel Fabian and health reporter Renee Ghert-Zand join host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s episode.

Dozens of Palestinians were killed Thursday in Gaza City as they swarmed aid trucks that entered the city. What is the IDF telling us about what happened?

Yesterday afternoon, two Israelis were killed when a Palestinian terrorist opened fire at a gas station outside the West Bank settlement of Eli before being shot and killed by the owner of a nearby business on leave from fighting in Gaza. First, we hear about the victims and then the perpetrator.

Ghert-Zand brings some highlights from a conference on women soldiers’ health under war.

Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center-Ichilov Hospital has opened a suite of 10 new underground operating rooms for ambulatory surgeries. What’s unique about this new set-up?

In a scientific first, researchers at Bar-Ilan University have created testicles in a laboratory, a discovery that they hope could lead to a better understanding of sex determination as well as advances in infertility treatment. We also hear how it could be a methodology used in the future for male children facing cancer treatments.
