Daily Briefing May 25: Bennett claims victory on Iran’s Guard & Turkey’s FM flies in

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 Tech Israel editor Ricky Ben-David, currently in Morocco, join host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett revealed yesterday that US President Joe Biden updated him last month on his final decision to keep Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organizations list. Why is this important and considered a win for Bennett?

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu is currently visiting Israel and the Palestinian Authority. But what is perhaps more telling is who didn’t join the entourage.

Israeli and Moroccan organizations signed a number of business and tech agreements on Monday, as part of the inaugural Connect to Innovate conference. What’s going on here?

Ben-David shares a personal side to her trip, including what she’s hearing from her hotel window.

Discussed articles include:
