Daily Briefing Oct. 13: Day 7 of Israel at war – The stench of death at Kibbutz Be’eri

Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and reporter Canaan Lidor discuss scenes of butchery and carnage at Kibbutz Be’eri, as well as Blinken in Israel and Ofakim’s Rachel Edry

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.

Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and reporter Canaan Lidor join host Jessica Steinberg.

We are now on Day 7 of the war with Hamas. Berman and Lidor recount their drive down south on Route 232, the scenes of carnage, with pick-up trucks and belongings of Hamas terrorists strewn on the ground, along with their bodies.

Lidor describes “death avenue” in Be’eri, the stench of death in the street, the sealed rooms of homes that became death traps, the burned homes and cars.

Berman updates on US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s visit to Israel on Thursday, and what his upcoming meetings in Jordan and Qatar could portend for the ongoing war.

Lidor also explains what happened in Ofakim on October 7, with a more detailed description of the 15-hour siege in Rachel and David Edry’s house, where five terrorists holed up, eventually taken out by Israeli security forces.
