Gaza military ‘pause,’ escalation on northern border inflame divisions in Israel

“Jerusalem Minute” with Middle East correspondent Josh Hasten, Ep. 22

A daily “operational pause“ in Israel Defense Forces counterterrorism operations along a key southern road in Gaza, announced on Sunday, has angered swaths of the Israeli public and government officials.

Meanwhile, full-scale war seems imminent with Hezbollah in Lebanon as its rockets continue to cause widespread damage and forest fires in northern Israel.

JNS CEO and Jerusalem bureau chief Alex Traiman and Middle East correspondent Josh Hasten also discuss other hot topics, including the arrival of White House envoy Amos Hochstein in Israel to calm tensions on the northern border; new U.S. sanctions on Israeli “settlers“ in Judea and Samaria; and polls showing that Hamas’s popularity is soaring.
