Today in morning editionNPR’s Steve Inskeep grills Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about Gaza’s future after Israeli military response Hamas attack on October 7th. Netanyahu said troops found weapons, ammunition, bombs and a command center at Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.

- NPR’s Greg Myre says there’s a ‘very real risk’ Israel will find itself trapped in Gaza when its military campaign ends, and as Netanyahu has said he does not want Hamas or the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank to rule Gaza.
