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.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Yair Lapid ordered Israeli security forces to remain in an enhanced state of readiness, given an uptick in violence in the West Bank. Since that order, there have been several incidents. We start with what happened this morning in a shooting near Elon Moreh that was claimed by a new Palestinian militia, the Lion’s Den.

On Saturday, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah lauded a US-mediated draft proposal to resolve a maritime border dispute between Israel and Lebanon as “a very important step.” He said that the emerging deal opens up “new and promising horizons for the people of Lebanon by rescuing the country from the crisis it has fallen into.” Why this change in tone?

On Saturday, Shas party leader Aryeh Deri said that a government under opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu would pass a bill to enable it to overrule High Court decisions. We hear about additional legislators threatening judicial changes.

According to a recent Axios report, last month Robert Menendez, chairman of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, warned Netanyahu that including extreme-right lawmakers in a potential future government would harm US-Israel relations. Horovitz explains why it is not only external ties that may be harmed.
