palestinians fear israelis are changing the rules for accessing the site. the violence has spread to the gaza strip. days of rising tensions in israel and the occupied west bank. there have been several stabbings and shootings across the regional. hoda abdel hamid joins us live from ramallah in the west bank. these tensions are gradually but most definitely spreading from east jerusalem now to gaza. >> yes, definitely yesterday the clashes in gaza was -- signaled a new escalation. despite the fact that there have been calls to try orestore calm on both sides of the conflict, calls made by the palestinian president mahmoud abbas and
israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. these youth are not organized by any political faction per se, it is youth who are expressing their frustration and actually when you do ask them what are you going to do next there are calls for calm. people tell you no, we are fed up of all of this. we want to find a final settlement to all these issues and we will continue as long as they see violations between the two sides. >> and friday was the deadliest day wasn't it in terms of this recent spate of violence. and the clashes are sporadic so far in nature, they're not all organized or orchestrated. >> reporter: they are not organized or orchestrated. they are sporadic but they are nearly on a daily basis. we do know for example, that later on here, in ramallah in
the north of the town, while these students of the universities have called for a renewed protest. now when you say protest here, it means that at some point they will be clashes and then there is also two funerals in hebron which has been quite volatile as a city. and there are fears that after the funerals there of two palestinians who have died in the past few days, there will be more clashes. usually when the clashes start they start preddin spreading alr the different towns and cities of the occupied west bank. they are sporadic and limited in numbers, even though on the last few days you see an increase of youth standing by and wondering whether they should join in or not. i would say each time there's a confrontation, each time there is deft, each time they're
injured the anger andersons among the youth and the danger is no matter how much the political pressure there is, we know there has been regional pressure, international pressure to try to quell this situation as soon as possible. but will most of them listen? most of them have been born after the oslo accords, they haven't seen anything, any sign of peace in their daily lives, or on the ground, their world has slng shrunk. the challenge is to try to quell these clashes sps and trying top them small in scope. >> all right, hoda abdel hamid, from russia plaw. over the past threramallah.

won't be any alternatives to assad and i.s.i.l. once the civil war ends. >> what we've seen so far in terms of russian military activity and the strikes are taken as they are predominantly against opposition groups. >> even with this one change in u.s. policy, the situation in syria is still unstable. the u.s. has no quick way of ending the violence. rosiland jordan al jazeera washington. >> and the u.s. says it will hold a second round of talks with russia to ensure safety during the bombing campaign in syria. 300 have been killed during its latest rounds of attacks on raqqraqqa and homs. north korea is celebrating 70 years since it was founded by
