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.
Today’s guests are military correspondent Judah Ari Gross and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur, with Raoul Wootliff hosting.
On today’s show, we open with the alleged Israeli assassination of Midhat as-Saleh, once jailed in Israel on security-related crimes and since connected to Syrian intelligence, who was reportedly shot dead over the weekend in the Syrian town of Ain Eltinah.
We assess the latest settler violence toward both Palestinians and Israeli security forces in the West Bank.
And we look at the murder of UK politician David Amess and ask what the rest of the world can learn from Israel’s experience of political killings.
