5:03 am
there was panic, but security forces, and other people who are coming to support the peace rally, they are not allowing people to enter the rear. it caused a panic and blited everywhere. they are calling for people to go to the hospital to be able to help. they are wounded and there's frustration, right now, according to the announcements made in the area. they say there may be a third suicide bomber, that is why they are trying to avoid people entering the area. >> and tell us about the peace rally. who called it? who were attending. >> yes, some leftist union, some leftist workers union, and also an important part was the a.c.t. it is the forces. they called for the peace rally.
5:04 am
they were going to protest the government. fleerl three or two weeks ago. it was important. it was going to be out before the elections. >> thank you for updating us on that terrible situation in the cap 258 ankara. live from the capital turkey israeli police shot dead a palestinian who stabbed two civilians near the damascus gate. it's the latest violence in a series of attacks across israel and the palestinian territory. 17 palestinians, and four israelis died and over 1,000 have been injured in the region since october the 3rd. the unrest began several weeks ago. the al-aqsa mosque compound. palestinians fear israel would
5:05 am
change the rules. it spread to the strip, the leader of the palestinian hamas. they called on supporters to join the protest. it followed days of rising tensions. there has been several stabbings and shootings across the region, we are joined from ramallah. hoda, it seems peaceful now. what are we expecting today? >> well the students of the university said that they will march no this point behind me. it's been a flashpoint for a few days, and we witnessed the violent clashes ongoing at the moment. we understand that they are making their way here. if you look at - all over, in hebron, for example, there are two funeral processions that should be on their way now. usually that kind of procession ends up in clashes. these are two young palestinians
5:06 am
who were shot dead by israeli forces. one of them was, according to the israeli police, about to stop - statemented to -- about to stab an israeli citizen and the other one did stab a soldiers. there was a funeral procession in occupied east jerusalem. there a young man, 15 years old, i think, died. this morning, during clashes with the israeli forces. so you have all the tension points all over the occupied east jerusalem, and occupied west bank, and that obviously adds to the charged and volatile atmosphere. especially among the youth. >> hamas has been calling this a third intifada. what is the feeling about that. there's not been any mass organising or protest. do people feel that this could
5:07 am
be the start of a third uprising? >> well we are not there yet. when you see the clashes, yes, you have a lot of youth there. very young. sometimes teenagers, but not a mass movement behind there. some of these were calling for a third intifada, some said we are not there yet, we don't have a huge popular support. if we were to have a third, we need a leadership, a plan and an aim. the idea of an intifada does not bode well with the older generation, there has been through two. but they haven't achieved much with the two intifadas, they pay the high price. there is a worry. there are calls for calm. the issue is whether the young
5:08 am
people will listen to the leadership. they are angry. ever since they were forn. they hear about peace negotiations. they watch the international conferences happen. on the ground. they have had a chavening to themselves. their lives have worsened and the idea is to figure out who is listening. and they are willing to consider the fighting, which is taking a hold on them now, the president obama administration decided to abandon its programme to train fighters to battle i.s.i.l. in syria. the state department said there needs to be a shift in focus to train leaders. the u.s. spend 500 million to eequip thousands of fighters. only a handful made it to the battlefield. rosalind jordan reports from washington d.c. >> reporter: when i.s.i.l. fighters captured parts of syria
5:09 am
in 2014, the u.s. came up with a plan, train syrian rebels to go after i.s.i.l. instead. 500 million over three years, to raise an army some 15,000 men strong. a year later the u.s. is dumping that idea and planning to give basic military equipment and support to existing groups. u.s. officials insist the goal is the same. >> enable, capable motivated forces on the ground to retake territory from i.s.i.l., and reclaim syrian territory. in extremism. fewer than 100 people were graduated from the train and desist programme. they collapsed when they entered the battlefield. it was an embarrassment for the obama administration. >> can you tell us what the total number of trained fighters remains? >> it's a small number. the ones that are in the fight is - we are talking four or five. >> as i see it right now,
5:10 am
there's four or five u.s.-trained fighters. let's not kid ourselves. that's a joke. >> reporter: u.s. officials say that once the war ends, the rebel fighters should have a seat at the table. >> one of the reasons to provide support to a variety of opposition groups in syria is clearly to fight i.s.i.l. but another reason is to ensure that there are credible opposition factions in the country who could be a part of the transition. >> with russia running its own military operations in syria. the u.s. is worried there won't be any alternatives to assad or isil once the war ends. >> so far, in terms of russian military activity, and the strikes are taken, they are predominantly without opposition groups. >> with one change in u.s. policy, the situation is
5:11 am
unstable in syria. the u.s. has no quick way of ending the violence now, the u.s. says it will hold a second round of talks with russia to ensure air safety during the bombing campaign in syria. moscow says at least 300 fighters have been killed in syria during air strikes in raqqa, homs and aleppo. five were killed in an air strike on a camp for internally displaced people. 50 were injured in the strike on the village in adbene in idlib province. north korea warned leaders that his country is ready to tackle anything. harry fawcett is monitoring the events. north korea undermining military might with the hardware it has been putting on show today.
5:12 am
>> that's right. that's what a lot of people are looking out for. kim jong un said he wanted the biggest ever parade to take place on this day, october 10th. marking the ruling party's foundation, and it was a huge parade. we saw some new things. analyst say not as much new hardware. there was a 300 meter artillery gun, way was displayed. the mobile, the kn 08 seen 300 years ago. there was what some are calling a different nose shape on it, but similar dimensions. that is what they saw in terms of hardware. there were other things to look at in terms of speech, in which he talked about responding to military threat and spoke a
5:13 am
great deal to and about his people, about the way that the workers party was only as strong as the people of north korea, and the way that each of them and the party in concert achieved so much for their nation. >> it was interesting there was a delegation from china there, because relations have been cool between the two countries of later, although they were allies. >> that's right, and if you contrast what happened in this massive parade in pyongyang to a similar parade in beijing, when the north korean delegate to that parade was very much marginalized, at least in terms of the photo opportunities, he was put a long way from china's president steven pinizzotto, whereas south korea's president park geun-hye was the other side. given almost honorary status at that parade. we saw china's fifth party
5:14 am
official faith by the north koreans, there to kim jong un, throughout the balcony, the two were joke of course, scuttling every few minutes. it was very much a sign from north korea that it wants to, or at least both sides promoting ideas that it was warmer than reported since kim jong un took power and xi jinping harry fawcett in sole there still to come on the programme... >> i'm daniel schweimler in buenos aires - but am i. the houses behind me don't figure on any official maps. at least not yet. >> and a move to preserve florida's everglades. but will it come at a price for the air boat culture?
