formetroops al asaad by the attacks. >> in this video, posted on sunday, it's fighters are shown distributing pamphlets in adan, and fighting against the houthis in different parts of the country. isil also claims responsibility for a series of attacks that targeted shia mosques like this one in the capitol last month. isil is ex-nd paing in areas formerly under al quaida in the arabian peninsula. they have recently suffered major set backs losing moment of it's top leaders in u.s. drone attacks. the attack isn't the first time that coalition forces have been tarted. last important, dozens of soldiers were killed in an
2:04 pm
attack. the offense the highest number of forces killed in a single attack, since the start of their military campaign in yemen, seven months ago. many are now worried the attacks in adan would further imflame the continuing war in yemen. now let's talk to a british talk britto write about the region, i believe that you are skeptical that there's actually is isil whew would that be. >> i think that despite the they have come out and brought the photos of the people who have endo it. that's not to say that there wasn't other people involved and al quaida for example. it has shed light on this
2:05 pm
link, to radical groups in the region. in the country specifically, to the government. and something that in yemen people point out themselveses. today, for example, the government spokesman was reported to have said that there possibly was a missile attack as well as the car poms. abomb. >> is in the end there is speculation. they have been carrying out attacks. they are increasing their role in the country, but whether this was solely an isis led operation is still yet to be seen. >> during the early months of the war, the arabian peninsula establishing more of a foothold in the south and southeast because of the chaos elsewhere. of f o. >> trying to establish itself. >> you mentioned al quaida, and that first and foremost, is the predop innocent radical group in yesment come
2:06 pm

2:07 pm
and from the spectrum, isis needs to carry out the attacks which means that alcid doesn't do, and the idea is to try and create a space for the platform themselves. and in reality, they are still a very small group in the country. especially when you compare it to all the other groups so fighting across the country. >> thank you very much indeed for p coming in. the top u.s. commander has admitted that the decision to pom a hospital in the northern city was made from within the u.s. chain of command contrary to his earlier suggestions general jon campbell told the senate arms serviced committee the decision to go through with it was a mistake 22 people were killed in the p being on saturday made within the u.s. chain of command. the hospital was mistakenly struck we would never
2:08 pm
intentionally target a never texted medical facility. i must allow the investigation to take it's course, therefore i am not at liberty to situses securitier specifics. >> . >> i ensure you the investigation will be thorough, object i, and transparent. >> let's hear more now from from my colleague. he has been talking to officials about what they say happened. >> we had a conversation with afghan security officials with the leading general in this operation. they are telling us that they are denying any involvement. they said that they were not them who called the pomming and it was not them who did the coordination with the plane. bomb with frowned with them, the it was a u.s. soldier that called the bombing and who did the coordination. well, when this operation of kind due started retaking the operation started, .

2:10 pm
that it is more than a week now they are liking with no water or electricity we can hear gunfire, artillerywhere so the problem is now for the locals for any movement for locals that they don't know where it belongs to whom and the fighting is basically street to street. any movement for local can be dangerous and they get shot at. >> now let's talk to rosalyn jordan in washington, d.c. two elements mentioned that i would like toic p up on. the first is that he said yes afghan officials say members of the taliban were in the hospital compound at the time, of the attack. that might be helpful to general campbell and others trying to explain this situation. but very difficult to explain that the afghan generals on the ground are saying it was a u.s. special forces operaty
2:11 pm
embedded with the forces who said you need the attack this hospital now. >> that is mott the story given to members of the senate armed services committee. he is saying that if while the afghans asked for that air strike to be carried out, that the u.s. military had to review the request, decided it was an acceptable request under their terms of engangment, and then carries out the strike. that said, he said that the u.s. would n knowingly target something such a a hospital. >> well, they have been saying from the very beginning that there were no

after a number of attacks in recent days with deaths on both sides. mike hannah reports from the occupied west bank. the israeli army ransacking several houses and arresting at least two people in the city the resistence was fierce but limited to stones. the homes of two men that had allegedly been involved in attacks were demolished they say it is an act of cruelty, given that they occurs nearly a year ago they describe it as yet another illegal act of collect i punishment. >> yesterday at mitt night, army forces came and raises the houses and assaulted the residents. they started hitting people and ordered us to evacuate from the building without any prewarning. we were just evacuated to the
2:14 pm
street. >> the funeral of 13-year-old who was shot and killed by the israeli army at nearby refugee camp, his family adamant that there were no prots taking place at the time of the shooting. >> my son went to school, and then he finished school, but he never came home, they shot him and there were no clashes underway. >> and in the ramallah, protestors disbursed by steel bullers and tier gas, gunshots were also fires. >> as palestinian frustration mounts so does political pressure on palestinian leader. there are questions from the leadership as to the nature of cooperation with israel, and questions from within his own. p almosto. factions as to whether he intends to abandon the accords honor president. the frame work for whatever relationship exists with
2:15 pm
israel. >> at a e he made clear his belief, that under occupation palestinians are forced to defend themselves. >> when a group attack availingly what do you expect us to to? is leave us alone. we are not the ones that started it. israel has to stop and accept our hand as reached out for political solution, and a peaceful way. and not in another way. >> another day of rage, and another day of israeli occupation. >> mike hannah, al jazeera, in the occupied west bank. >> let's talk lye for the us in ramallah, i guess he has a chance to take the temperature of the people there those who have been out protesting. what sense do you get of their mood if you like. >> there is frustration, but i would add to it lack of
2:16 pm
hope in the future. most of the youth that go through these protests and these clashes are in their late teens and their early 20's. f since they were born they heard about the two state solution, they have been watching summits and international conferences. but on the ground, the reality has actually shrunk with each land grab. with each confrontation, they grow more and more angry. so when you talk to people here, they say is the problem there is no solution inside there is no political settlement that will come any type soon and you foal they don't know any more how to express how frustrated they are. they keep on saying that israel is shrinking their area of living really. their livelied hood, taking awayland. that they are also have a lot of concern about what is going on around the access
2:17 pm
compound, and this is going to bring a will the of turn to this conflict that has been going forever. so many would just tell you we don't believe in any anything any more. system of the youth say well maybe going back to violence is the only solution maybe that will put pressure on the international community to bring about a solution so you have very mixed feelings and we still didn't get anything. so that's i think the crux of the dilemma for the palestinian peep. they look forward, but they don't know what to look at exactly. >> thank you, that properties cutedy ash moan the former head of the assembly part of a bribery scandal, the former u. intermountain general
