Welcome to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, Sunday through Thursday.

Military correspondent Emanuel Fabian and real estate reporter Danielle Nagler join host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

On Saturday night an Israeli bus near the West Bank settlement of Ofra was fired upon from the nearby Palestinian town of Silwad, leaving at least eight bullet holes, but thankfully no one was injured. What else do we know?

Earlier on Saturday, three Palestinian women from Nablus were arrested near a checkpoint with a makeshift assault rifle in their car. First of all, what is an improvised automaton?

Israel will allow 1,500 Gazans to enter the country today, bringing the total to 15,500. This increase was announced last month but was delayed. What are additional permits provided for?

We talk about the case of the Palestinian prisoner on hunger strike Khalil Awawdeh. What makes his case unique?

Nagler gives us an update on rising real estate prices in Israel, including a selection of home sales from the past month.

And finally, we hear about new tourism efforts from the Israelis – in Zanzibar!
