Daily Briefing Sept 10: What’s in Bank of Israel’s arsenal as shekel hits 3-year low?

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.

Tech Israel editor Sharon Wrobel and military correspondent Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

A 6.8-magnitude quake on Friday devastated areas across Morocco, killing over 2,000 and leaving thousands more wounded. It is the biggest to hit the North African country in 120 years. What is Israel currently doing — or planning on doing — to help the victims?

The shekel depreciated more than 1% on Thursday to around 3.85 against the US dollar, trading around the weakest since March 2020. How much does the judicial overhaul crisis factor into this?

On Monday, the Bank of Israel left the benchmark interest rate steady at 4.75 percent for a second month in a row. While the interest rate is steady, there are rumors that the governor of the bank, Amir Yaron, will be jumping ship. Wrobel weighs in.

Israeli soldiers entered the Arab Israeli city of Kafr Qasim and clashed with locals, lightly injuring five, while chasing after two Palestinian suspects who infiltrated through the West Bank security barrier. Why is this against IDF regulations?

This morning, goods were again allowed to be exported from the Gaza Strip after a week’s suspension. What caused this pause?

Discussed articles include:

Death toll from Morocco quake crosses 2,000, as authorities fear it’ll keep climbing

Fears of constitutional crisis drive shekel to three-year low

Bank of Israel keeps interest rates unchanged, says cycle of jumps may not be over

IDF soldiers enter Arab Israeli city against regulations, clash with locals; 5 hurt
