Daily Briefing Nov 29: Day 54 – Why restrained Israel ignores Hamas violence, violations

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur on Israelis’ call for continued fighting in Gaza; Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn on who the freed Palestinian prisoners are

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 54 of the war. Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn join host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s podcast.

Underage and female Palestinian security prisoners are being released at a ratio of three inmates per Israeli hostage freed from Gaza. Keller-Lynn explains what is the range of crimes committed by the freed prisoners.

National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir on Tuesday threatened to break apart the government if Israel does not restart its war with Hamas, currently on a negotiated pause. Are these idle threats?

Rettig Gur delves into why Israelis are swallowing a pause in fighting as hostages are released, but unlikely to support any real cessation of the war.
