Daily Briefing Aug 2 — Hamas: Ben Gvir’s Temple Mount visit impetus for terror attack

ToI podcast

Diplomatic reporter Lazar Berman on Hezbollah’s escalations in north; health reporter Renee Ghert-Zand on unique surgery to save newborn’s ovaries & cookies to cure food allergies

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.

Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and health reporter Renee Ghert-Zand join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.

Six Israelis were shot and wounded, one of them seriously, in a terror attack yesterday in the West Bank city of Ma’ale Adumim. Hamas claims it was a response to Minister Itamar Ben Gvir’s recent visit to the Temple Mount. What do we know?

Yesterday, National Security Adviser Tzachi Hanegbi described the tent that Hezbollah set up in Israeli territory north of the Blue Line between Israel and Lebanon as a “childish game.” We hear how Berman views Hezbollah’s seemingly increasing belligerence in this semi-border area.

In a procedure Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem is calling the first known case of its kind in the world, doctors saved both ovaries of a newborn preemie after delivering her in an emergency cesarean section and performing surgery on her just half an hour after birth. How did the doctors realize her ovaries were in danger?

A leading Israeli researcher is baking immunotherapy cookies to combat food allergies. How does this work?

Finally, a group of presidents and chancellors of prominent historically Black colleges and universities in the US recently visited Israel. We hear from Berman and Ghert-Zand about the purposes of their visit and what they’re taking back home.
