Daily Briefing Nov. 12: Day 37 – Global backlash as IDF approaches Gaza’s Shifa hospital

Editor David Horovitz on salient points of PM’s recent remarks and how 5 soldiers lost their lives in Gaza; reporter Canaan Lidor, back from Gaza border, on volunteers under fire

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.

Today is day 37 of the war. Editor David Horovitz and reporter Canaan Lidor join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

Over the weekend, Israel saw another five soldiers fall during the ground operation in Gaza. Horovitz fills us in on the status of the fighting alongside booby-trapped tunnels.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the nation and took reporters’ questions last night. Horovitz brings highlights from Netanyahu’s remarks, as well as what Defense Minister Yoav Gallant is saying about an expanded operation in Lebanon.

Yesterday was Armistice Day in London and there were hundreds of thousands of anti-Israel protesters in the streets. Horovitz describes the disconnect felt in the UK right now.

French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday said there was “no justification” for Israel’s bombing of “these babies, these ladies, these old people” in the war against Hamas and reiterated his call for a ceasefire in Gaza. Lidor gives background on why these statements constitute such a betrayal for many French Jews.

Lidor reports back from Gaza-adjacent communities, where he spent time with struggling farmers near the border.
