Daily Briefing Sept. 13 – Can Israel change the Gaza dynamic? Does it want to?

Military correspondent Judah Ari Gross and political reporter Tal Schneider discuss Gaza, the Israeli attitude to Iran and a dramatic, secret Iraqi mission

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 writer Judah Ari Gross and political reporter Tal Schneider, with host Jessica Steinberg.

Gross fills us in on the recent uptick in Gazan violence, and examines what that really means in terms of Hamas control over the Strip, which recent Israeli governments have allowed to continue rather than risk escalating the situation.

Schneider discusses how she came about her latest feature regarding a secret 2017 mission by Israeli engineers and an American Jewish lawyer to steal into Iraq in order to rehabilitate the tomb of the prophet Nahum. That feature will appear in The Times of Israel on Wednesday, after first being published on Zman Yisrael in Hebrew.

Gross and Schneider close the podcast with a conversation about recent statements on the part of Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Yair Lapid regarding Iran, Israel and the US.

Discussed articles include:

Israeli jets strike Gaza after 2nd rocket attack in 24 hours

Terrorists fire one rocket from Gaza, then another as IDF strikes Hamas targets

Gantz reveals Iranian drone base, says it is used to train terror groups
