Daily Briefing Nov. 23 – Explosive testimony turns up the heat in Netanyahu’s trial

Political reporter Tal Schneider on Nir Hefetz’s bombshell revelations in Case 4000; US correspondent Jacob Magid on the future of the Abraham Accords and the visa waiver program

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.

Political reporter Tal Schneider and US correspondent Jacob Magid join Raoul Wootliff on today’s podcast.

We start the show with US-Israel relations and look specifically at Magid’s interview with Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked and what she said about Jerusalem’s ties with Washington.

We hear about the bill to limit the prime minister’s term to no more than eight years, which passed its first reading in the Knesset last night.

And Schneider assesses yesterday’s testimony of former Netanyahu top aide Nir Hefetz, the first of the prosecution’s state witnesses in the ongoing corruption trial against the ex-prime minister.

Discussed articles include:
