Daily Briefing May 11 – Israel under fire: An escalation on multiple fronts

Tune in Sunday through Thursday to hear ToI editors and reporters quickly catch you up on what’s important today

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.

Today’s panel comprises military correspondent Judah Ari Gross and US correspondent Jacob Magid, along with host Raoul Wootliff.

Amid rocket fire from Gaza toward Israeli cities, today’s show looks at the escalation in the south and other incidents across Israel currently shaking the country.

Hundreds of rockets have been fired by Hamas and other terror groups, triggering an Israeli response that has seen multiple targets hit by airstrikes in the Gaza Strip. What is the state of play at the moment? Where are things headed?

And with the renewed violence also eliciting international reactions, we assess the US response and its efforts to tone down a UN Security Council statement condemning both sides for the situation.

Discussed articles include:
