Daily Briefing Nov 16: Day 41 – Police begin building October 7 rape cases

Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn discusses evidence of Hamas’s sexual abuse, plus sanctions on 2 Arab MKs; reporter Sue Surkes looks at Druze during war, and troubled teens

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 41 of the war. Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn and environmental reporter Sue Surkes join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Keller-Lynn discusses how the police are proceeding with investigations of rape on October 7, although it’s not yet clear how the cases will be built and who will be ultimately tried, given the lack of physical evidence.

Surkes looks at members of Israel’s Druze community who have thrown themselves behind the war effort.

Keller-Lynn explains why two Arab MKS were suspended and had their pay docked by Knesset Ethics Committee.

Surkes talks about a nature rehabilitation center in Tzur Hadassah, outside Jerusalem, where the lack of a bomb shelter is keeping troubled teens away when they need it most.
