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.
Arab affairs correspondent Aaron Boxerman and military reporter Judah Ari Gross join Jessica Steinberg on today’s podcast.
Boxerman and Gross discuss a recent wave of settler violence attacks against Palestinians, and how the IDF handles, or keeps its distance from, the clashes between these two groups.
Gross also looks at the recent joint exercise in the Red Sea by the navies of Israel, the United States, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in response to their shared adversary Iran’s presence in the waters of the Middle East, an exercise that would have been unheard of prior to the Abraham Accords.
Boxerman comments on recent activities with regard to the Palestinians’ dire financial situation, and how Israel takes part in the efforts to restore some balance to the Palestinian economy.
