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.
Military correspondent Judah Ari Gross and health and science editor Nathan Jeffay join host Jessica Steinberg.
Gross reports on the terror attack in Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday, in which a terrorist with known ties to Hamas shot and killed a 26-year-old Eliyahu Kay, a South African immigrant and former lone soldier who was making his way to work as a tour guide at the Western Wall.
Jeffay discusses two Israeli scientific findings, one about the scents emitted by babies and how they affect mothers and fathers and the other study which resulted in a method for “reading” minuscule movements in the face in order to spot fibbers.
