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.
Legal reporter Jeremy Sharon and Arab Affairs reporter Gianluca Pacchiani join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.
We begin with a briefing from political reporter Carrie Keller-Lynn who traveled with Defense Minister Yoav Gallant to Berlin late last week for Israel’s biggest-ever defense sale. She tells us about the significance of this sale, beyond the numbers.
Five members of a single Bedouin family were killed on Wednesday in a shooting inside a house in Basmat Tab’un, a village in the north, around 22 kilometers (14 miles) east of Haifa. Pacchiani gives more details about this massacre in broad daylight and describes how some of the programs aimed at staunching this bloodletting in Arab communities are being discontinued.
Sharon gives highlights from Thursday’s recusal law hearing at the High Court, including drama surrounding Attorney Aner Helman.
