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.
Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.
An explosion at the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in the Gaza Strip last night killed hundreds, maybe. There are different versions of who is to blame for the disaster and how many people died. Berman and Rettig Gur weigh in on the facts and the fury on social media, as Israel’s evidence that Islamic Jihad was responsible mounts and US President Joe Biden endorses it.
Biden is in Israel. The hospital disaster has cast a pall over his solidarity visit and his planned meetings with leaders of neighboring states have already been canceled. Berman explains.
Rettig Gur talks about an interview he conducted with the head of Israel’s mobile Crime Scene Investigation Unit. Be warned, graphic violence is described.
