In this episode of The Source, we talk to author and independent journalist Fabian Scheidler about the latest developments surrounding the Israeli war in Gaza. We begin the interview by talking about Fabian’s recent trip to Israel and Palestine. Then we examine the Hamas terror attack on October 7th and Israel’s response to it. We assess the credibility of the evidence presented by Israel of the Hamas command center under Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza. We examine the significance of the New York Times report that claims Israel knew about the Hamas attacks on October 7 more than a year ago. Finally, we take a look at developments in Germany in relation to the war in Gaza and discuss the latest updates on the war in Ukraine.
