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.
Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian joins host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s special one-on-one episode.
We are on day 35 of the war with Hamas and as of this morning, 36 IDF soldiers have been killed during the ground operation in Gaza. Fabian describes how in the past several days, the IDF has continued to achieve its goals inside the Gaza Strip and has reached near the Shifa Hospital, which the IDF has said is the headquarters of the terror group.
The IDF has completed airstrikes in Syria after a drone attacked a school in Eilat, Israel’s southernmost city. What’s the connection?
The Palestinian Authority has claimed that 14 Palestinians were killed in recent Jenin clashes. What is happening there? And we hear updates on continued tit-for-tat fighting in the north.
Fabian journeyed inside the Gaza Strip with the IDF’s Combat Engineering Corps. We hear about proverbial monsters under a child’s bed and a portal into a dark world.
