Daily Briefing Nov 2: Day 27 – Why IDF should apply lessons learned from Ukraine war

Diplomatic reporter Lazar Berman on ground operations in Gaza and Jordan’s recall of its ambassador; Arab affairs reporter Gianluca Pacchiani on a reporting trip to Rahat

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.

Diplomatic reporter Lazar Berman and Arab affairs reporter Gianluca Pacchiani join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in our Jerusalem offices.

It is Day 27 of the war with Hamas and the IDF continues to push into Gaza even as Israel suffers continued loss of soldiers’ lives. Berman speaks about what’s happening on the ground right now.

Israel’s other fronts are also seeing an uptick in violence and an Israeli was killed in a shooting attack in the West Bank this morning. Berman updates us on what we are seeing on the northern front.

Foreign passport holders are being let out of Gaza, and Egypt projects some 7,000 will cross the border at Rafah soon. Who are these foreign passport holders?

Jordan is among the nations to have pulled its ambassadors to Israel. Berman explores how serious a move this is in terms of Israel-Jordan relations.

We hear about a Lebanese TV interview with Ghazi Hamad, a member of Hamas’s political bureau, in which he basically said the terror organization has no regrets for its October 7 massacre.

And finally, Pacchiani reports back from a visit he made to Rahat, in which he met a Bedouin family with four members held hostage in Gaza.
