Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and military correspondent Emanuel Fabian discuss the repeated pleas from Zelensky to send arms, please; plus, weekend security updates

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 military correspondent Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s podcast.

We begin with a discussion of renewed requests for Israel to send the Iron Dome anti-missile defense systems to Ukraine. Berman and Fabian explain why that’s a complicated ask.
