This week Palestinian Authority official Ziad Abu Ein died soon after a confrontation with the IDF in the West Bank. While Palestinians say his death was caused by IDF violence, Israelis say it was the result of a heart attack. In this week's Frontlines Podcast, The Jerusalem Post’s Deputy Managing Editor Tovah Lazaroff sheds light on these conflicting versions of the event, and what ramifications the incident could have. Then, we’re joined by Israeli environmentalist Alon Tal, to discuss the oil spill that occurred last week near Eilat, when millions of liters of crude oil leaked out of a pipeline, flooding 200 acres of a desert nature reserve in southern Israel.
Each week, the Jerusalem Post Frontlines Podcast brings you behind-the-scenes interviews with the Post's top reporters, editors and columnists, as well as special interviews with Israeli experts and politicians to offer insight, commentary and opinion on the biggest stories in Israel.
