Listen Sunday through Thursday to hear ToI editors and reporters quickly catch you up on what’s important today

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 panel comprises Times of Israel editor David Horovitz and military correspondent Judah Ari Gross, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

We begin today’s program with an update on what appears to be a terrorist attack near the Israeli embassy in New Delhi. Next, we discuss controversial remarks made by IDF chief of staff Aviv Kohavi in regards to the US plan to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal.

How was the IDF deployed at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, and is it being utilized today in enforcing the ongoing lockdown?

Horovitz gives his impressions of his interview with New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar, who is angling to become Israel’s next prime minister, and sees replacing Netanyahu as a “national interest.”

Discussed articles include:

Mossad said involved in probe of blast near Israeli embassy in New Delhi

Picking a fight with US over Iran deal, IDF chief baffles even accord’s critics

‘Netanyahu plays a dirty game,’ says challenger Sa’ar, ‘but he doesn’t scare me’
