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.

Joining host Amanda Borschel-Dan today are political correspondent Tal Schneider, military correspondent Emanuel Fabian and legal affairs correspondent Jeremy Sharon.

The body of Israeli 12th grader Tiran Fero was recovered by Israel this morning from Palestinian gunmen who snatched it from a hospital in Jenin following a fatal car crash. Fabian tells us how this heart-breaking saga ended.

Wednesday morning Jerusalem saw a double bombing, which killed 16-year-old Israeli-Canadian Aryeh Schupak and injured 20-plus more. Fabian updates us with more information about the perpetrators and the hunt to find them.

The coalition talks are still in process. Schneider explains how yesterday’s terror attack affect them and what’s expected next.

One of the first orders of business of the new government could be the override clause, which could allow the Knesset to override High Court of Justice rulings, potentially by a slim majority of 61. Sharon shares concerns from some 100 law professors and lecturers across Israel’s universities and academic institutions who published a letter this week opposing the proposed bill.

Finally, Schneider speaks about the dire situation of far-left party Meretz, which did not make it into the Knesset in the recent elections.

I joined The Times of Israel after many years covering US and Israeli politics for Hebrew news outlets.

I believe responsible coverage of Israeli politicians means presenting a 360 degree view of their words and deeds – not only conveying what occurs, but also what that means in the broader context of Israeli society and the region.

That’s hard to do because you can rarely take politicians at face value – you must go the extra mile to present full context and try to overcome your own biases.

I’m proud of our work that tells the story of Israeli politics straight and comprehensively. I believe Israel is stronger and more democratic when professional journalists do that tough job well.

Your support for our work by joining The Times of Israel Community helps ensure we can continue to do so.

Thank you,
Tal Schneider, Political Correspondent
