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.

Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman join host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

During our Wednesday morning recording, the IDF entered Jenin for a military raid in which at least three Palestinian gunmen were killed. Fabian gives background.

Over the two-day Rosh Hashanah holiday, there were also clashes on the Temple Mount and in East Jerusalem. What was the spark this time and how long are they expected to continue?

Last week, while Berman reported from the United Nations General Assembly in New York, British Prime Minister Liz Truss told Prime Minister Yair Lapid that she was reviewing a relocation of the country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. How seriously should we take this?

We take a look at what’s happening right now in Ukraine. After a series of contentious referendums for a merger with Russia in occupied Ukrainian territories, officials in three of these regions claimed victory — amid international condemnation of sham ballots. How is Israel reacting and is this a more decisive stance than we’ve seen before?

Fabian recently reported on a joint Israeli and American four-day navy drill in the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea that included American naval drones. Though Iran doesn’t have a coastline along the Red Sea, the drill — dubbed “Digital Shield” — had a significant Iranian bent. Fabian explains why.
