03 May, 2024

This week on The New Arab Weekly podcast, we look at the prospect of arrest warrants being handed down to Israeli leaders by the International Criminal Court (ICC), a potential Israeli assault on Rafah and attempts to secure a deal to end the fighting in Gaza, and a new law in Iraq that has criminalised homosexuality. 

We're joined by The New Arab's International Correspondents Editor Yazan Al-Saadi and journalist and reporter Assiah Hamed.
