Daily Briefing Nov 9: Day 34 – How leaked Qatari hostage release proposal may trap Israel

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur on alleged deal to pause war in exchange for dozen captives; political correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn on an in-depth rape investigation

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.

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and political analyst Carrie Keller-Lynn join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.

We are in day 34 of the war with Hamas and international media is reporting that Qatar is mediating negotiations between Israel and Hamas for the potential release of 10-15 hostages held in Gaza in exchange for a humanitarian pause in fighting of up to three days. Rettig Gur explains how this could be the wrong decision for Israel.

Keller-Lynn has conducted an in-depth investigation into whether physical evidence of rape was collected from the scores of bodies that exhibited signs of sexual abuse. She explains why this proof is becoming increasingly important.
