Daily Briefing Nov. 24 – How Israel is dialing up efforts to strengthen the PA

Arab affairs reporter Aaron Boxerman on the pledge to permit long-restricted Palestinian 4G cell service; editor David Horovitz on the rise and fall of Atarot’s Jerusalem Airport

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.

ToI’s editor David Horovitz and Arab affairs correspondent Aaron Boxerman join Raoul Wootliff on today’s podcast.

We look at Israel’s tentative agreement to permit Palestinian cellular companies to set up fourth-generation mobile networks, as part of a series of steps meant to strengthen the Palestinian Authority.

Boxerman also fills us in on the takeaways from the PA’s donor conference last week in Oslo.

We then assess the proposal to enable thousands of illegally constructed homes in Arab Israeli communities to be hooked up to the electricity grid, which passed a vote in a key Knesset committee Tuesday.

We look at the mountain of travails facing Moshe Hogeg, owner of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer club and an at-times celebrated Israeli entrepreneur, who has been arrested over a slew of damming fraud and sexual harassment allegations.

And finally, we hear about the rise, fall, and imminent repurposing of Atarot’s Jerusalem Airport.
