Daily Briefing Nov 30: Day 55 – Smaller Hamas hostage release expected, and 3 bodies

Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren on what we know about how hostages are treated in Gaza; military reporter Emanuel Fabian on deadly shooting in the capital and fragile truce

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 55 of the war. Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren and military reporter Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s podcast.

Three people were killed and six were wounded, two of them seriously, in a terror shooting attack at the entrance to Jerusalem on Thursday morning. Fabian updates us.

There are increased reports of Hamas violations of the temporary ceasefire. How is the IDF weighing its response?

Fabian joined a ride-along with the IDF on a nighttime raid in Beit Furik between Monday and Tuesday. What were the goals and were they met?

The updated list of hostages to be freed today is made up of only eight hostages — six women and two children, while till now at least 10 have been released each day. Hamas insists that the two Israeli-Russian women released last night as a “gesture” to Russian President Vladimir Putin count toward today’s list. We also have heard that three bodies will be returned.
