The New Arab Weekly: Gaza aid, Rafah assault, and the UK redefines 'extremism'



15 March, 2024

Welcome to the first episode of The New Arab Weekly

Each week, we take a look at some of the biggest stories of the week and examine what happened and why is it important. 

This week we look at the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, the looming prospect for an invasion of Rafah, and the recently announced definition of extremism, as laid out by the UK government. 

We're joined this week by The New Arab's Opinions Editor, Nadine Talaat (@nadine_talaat), and New Arab journalist and reporter Oliver Mizzi (@OllyMizzi99).
