Daily Briefing May 9 – As al-Aqsa seethes, are we headed for another intifada?

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 editor David Horovitz and Palestinian affairs reporter Aaron Boxerman, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Jerusalem has so far experienced two consecutive nights of rioting on the Al-Aqsa/Temple Mount compound. Boxerman rewinds time to fill in gaps and contextualize the strife at the holy site. As protests and rage spread, are we headed for another intifada?

Israel’s new Gulf State partners have condemned the Israeli police’s measures in attempting to quell the unrest. Why is this significant?

In the political arena, efforts are going full steam ahead to forge a unity government led by Yamina head Naftali Bennett and Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid. But the process is not without its hiccups.

Discussed articles include:

Jerusalem’s on fire, and it’s poised to spread in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank

90 Palestinians hurt in Jerusalem clashes; IDF strikes Gaza after rocket fired

Israel fears further escalation within days; Fatah warns of ‘all-out conflict’

UAE, Bahrain pan Israel’s ‘storming’ of Al-Aqsa, amid international condemnation

Lapid, Bennett know they must form a government quickly – or not at all

‘Change bloc’ seeking to swear in new government as early as Tuesday
