Daily Briefing Mar 3: Day 149 – Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the ‘other’ bad guys in Gaza

Military reporter Emanuel Fabian on a rare PIJ long-range rocket barrage, strikes on Iranian militias in Lebanon, status of Gazan detainees and a rescued hostage’s return to service

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 149 of the war with Hamas. Military reporter Emanuel Fabian joins host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s episode.

A rare barrage of long-range rockets was launched from Gaza toward Beersheba yesterday. Who claimed responsibility and what do these rockets represent?

The Israel Defense Forces said it struck a vehicle near southern Lebanon’s Naqoura on Saturday, targeting operatives belonging to the Imam Hossein Division, an Iranian militia that operates alongside Hezbollah. Fabian speaks about the increase of overt attacks on Iranian operatives.

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir railed at the release of Palestinian administrative detainees, claiming they were not freed due to overcrowding as had been stated. How many were released and on whose authority? And what is the status of the Gazan detainees?

Cpl. Ori Megidish, who was kidnapped by Hamas on October 7 and later rescued from captivity in the Gaza Strip by the Israel Defense Forces, returned to active military service on Monday. In what roles will she serve?
