Daily Briefing Nov 26: Day 51 – Chaos as Hamas frees 2nd hostage group, violates deal

Editor David Horovitz on hours of uncertainty as 13 Israelis, 4 Thai nationals awaited release, and pressure to extend ceasefire; health reporter Renee Ghert-Zand on organ donation

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 20-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world.

Today is day 51 of the war. Editor David Horovitz and health reporter Renee Ghert-Zand join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s podcast.

Last night 13 additional Israelis returned to their families as part of the temporary ceasefire agreement brokered by Qatar and the US between Israel and Hamas. We discuss the chaos around the second release process.

Horovitz also speaks to the seemingly increased dissonance between Israel’s plans to renew operations in Gaza and world pressure to lengthen the truce — even indefinitely.

Ghert-Zand discusses the health of the freed hostages so far and medical professionals’ preparations ahead of their release.

Finally, Ghert-Zand brings the stories of two families of fallen soldiers whose organs were donated.
