The Lowdown is the European Union of Jewish Students’ monthly podcast. In each episode, we discuss a different topic within the broad fields of global development and human rights, alongside a leading decision-maker on the topic. The podcast takes each issue from a Jewish youth perspective – asking how can we boost Jewish youth activism on each topic.
This Breaking Exclusive episode of the Lowdown provides a status update regarding the ongoing escalation in violence that has been seen between Israel and terror groups operating in Gaza. The discussion touches on issues relating to a potential ceasefire, the hundreds of rockets fired from Gaza towards Israeli urban areas, Israeli air strikes into Gaza and the political implications stemming from the Israeli Operation known as “Shield and Arrow”. The briefing seeks to provide listeners with an overview and holistic understanding of the ongoing developments in the region together with Lahav Harkov, the Senior Contributing Editor and Diplomatic Correspondent of The Jerusalem Post.
