Daily Briefing Nov. 3: Ben Gvir’s newfound fame; IDF soldier’s 9 hours in Iran

Political correspondent Jacob Magid covers election day machinations; military reporter Emanuel Fabian discusses a ramming attack and an IDF soldier’s unplanned stop in Iran

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 correspondent Jacob Magid and military reporter Emanuel Fabian join host Jessica Steinberg for today’s podcast.

Magid discusses his election day coverage of nationalist lawmaker Itamar Ben Gvir, as well as the differences from 19 months ago when Ben Gvir last ran for the Knesset.

Magid also looks at how Israel’s left-wing parties ran their campaigns, and what could lie ahead for them over the next four years.

Fabian offers an update on the car-ramming attack that took place Wednesday, in which an IDF officer was seriously injured by a Palestinian assailant.

He also unpacks the unexpected story of an IDF soldier traveling home to Israel who unexpectedly landed, undetected, in an Iranian airport.

Discussed articles include:
