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.
Military reporter Emanuel Fabian, political reporter Carrie Keller-Lynn and Arab affairs reporter Gianluca Pacchiani join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.
We are in day 10 of the war in Israel. The United States has organized a ship to transport US citizens this morning from the Haifa port to Cyprus as the fighting heats up and the ground incursion into Gaza is imminent. Fabian updates us on the checklist which needs to be accomplished before IDF forces move in.
We also hear about what has been happening on the northern border in the past several days. The IDF is to evacuate civilians from 28 Israeli communities along the Lebanese border. How is such a large-scale evacuation accomplished?
Pacchiani updates us on an even larger-scale evacuation: the million residents in northern Gaza who have been urged by Israel to go south.
Keller-Lynn reported alongside a mission of foreign ambassadors from evacuated Sderot yesterday. She sets the scene for us.
The Knesset is reopening today. We hear about the goals of the emergency government.
Pacchiani focuses on 20 percent of the country’s citizenry, Arab Israelis, and how they are experiencing this troubled time.
