Daily Briefing May 11: Day 3 of Operation Shield and Arrow – the world responds

Military reporter Emanuel Fabian, diplomatic reporter Lazar Berman and US bureau chief Jacob Magid give a 360-degree breakdown of the rain of rockets and their global resonance

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 correspondent Emanuel Fabian, diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and US bureau chief Jacob Magid join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.

We are on the third day of Operation Shield and Arrow. Fabian briefs us on the events of the past 24 hours, including a targeted killing of Palestinian Islamic Jihad military commander Ali Ghali.

We hear about the first real-world interception accomplished by the David’s Sling air defense system.

Berman discusses the lack of a long-term strategy as Israel appears to face the same scenario in these too-frequent cycles of rocket attacks and airstrikes.

We hear how the world at large is responding to Operation Shield and Arrow in the diplomatic sphere.

Magid drills down into events that took place at the United Nations yesterday.

How is the Biden administration responding to the fighting — and what is different this time from previous flareups.

Discussed articles include:
