This week on The New Arab Weekly podcast, we look at the fighting between the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and Sudanese government forces in Darfur, a spat between Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the 'day after' plan in Gaza, and the upheaval created in Kuwait with the news that both parliament and the constitution had been suspended.

Joining us, we have The New Arab's journalist and reporter Oliver Mizzi (@OllyMizzi99), and journalist and reporter Assiah Hamed (@AssiahHamed).
