Daily Briefing Mar 4: Day 150 – Israel pushes aid into Gaza. So why isn’t it delivered?

Diplomatic reporter Lazar Berman weighs in on US Vice President Harris’s sharp rebuke of Israel, new approaches to bringing in more aid trucks and the status of hostage negotiations

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 150 of the war with Hamas. Diplomatic reporter Lazar Berman joins host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s episode.

At a campaign stop in front of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, where state troopers beat US civil rights marchers nearly six decades ago, US Vice President Kamala Harris delivered what appeared to be the sharpest rebuke yet by a senior leader in the US government over the conditions in the Gaza Strip. There appears to be a shift in tone, but was there also a switch in messaging?

An Israeli official told Berman yesterday that following Thursday’s deadly stampede in Gaza City surrounding an aid convoy, Israel will try new solutions for delivering humanitarian supplies to northern Gaza this week. What are some of these approaches?

According to an Egyptian state-linked TV report, mediators and envoys from the Hamas terror group have made “significant progress” toward a truce in Gaza, as the talks in Cairo entered a second day. Why did Israel not send a team?
