Daily Briefing Oct. 24: Was Israel behind assassination of senior Lion’s Den member?

Editor David Horovitz on a disloyal recording of MK Bezalel Smotrich, and what could make for a Netanyahu victory; military correspondent Emanuel Fabian on alleged Israeli traitors

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.

Editor David Horovitz and military correspondent Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

Tamer Kilani, a member of the upstart Palestinian terror organization Lion’s Den, was killed early Sunday by an explosive device attached to a motorcycle detonated in Nablus’s Old City. Why or why not could Israel be behind the killing?

Yesterday, the Kan television channel aired a recording of Religious Zionist head Bezalel Smotrich that was apparently made last year in which he sounded pretty disloyal to opposition head Benjamin Netanyahu. What was on the recording?

We hear why Horovitz thinks that the November 1 elections will indeed be decisive.

Three men from northern Israel were indicted on Thursday for allegedly sending a large volume of sensitive information to the Hamas terror group in Turkey, and for planning to sabotage Israel’s cellular network in a future war. We hear why this is so dangerous to the IDF.

Finally, Horovitz briefly compares Israel’s chaotic electoral process with that of the UK.

Discussed articles include:
