11:02 am
terrorism. mike hanna is in west jerusalem and september this report. >> it's the forties full cabinet meeting in nearly three weeks. there's been an upsurge in violence in occupied territory and israel itself. four knife attacks happened against four israelis and palestinians killed. real concerns being raised by human rights organizations about the rules of engagement being applied or not by israeli forces. what's been the israeli response? >> well, there's been no formal israel response as yet.
11:03 am
the israeli civilians are shouting shoot him, kill him. [ gunfire ] >> the police open fire, though there is no apparent immediate threat. >> a similar situation involving a 30-year-old palestinian arab woman in galilee. police are shouting at her drop the knife, drop the knife, and once again, instead of attempting an arrest. [ gunfire ] >> they open fire at point-blank range. >> in the south, an israeli who attacked four palestinians in different locations is not gunned down, but arrested. israeli police say responses are determined by the specifics of each incident, and adds officers are facing life threatening situations and say there are no investigations into any of the police shootings. >> the major threat at the moment is the lone wolf palestinian either female or male that can come inside jerusalem or the old city and try to continue the pattern. that's what we're dealing with and that's what we're coming down on as hard as possible. >> the israeli occupying army is subject to military regulations, not civil ones. in the past week, the
11:04 am
palestinian red crescent says nearly 300 palestinians have been shot with live bullets. one of them was a 13-year-old, and in the preliminary investigation, the israeli army says he was mistakenly killed by sniper fire. his mother says the boy was on his way home from school and there were no demonstrations in the vicinity. >> my son went to school like all the other kids and finished school, but he never came back home. they shot him and there were no clashes underway inside the camp. >> the israeli army and red crescent confirm the boy was killed by a .22 bullet fired
11:05 am
from a ruger sniper rifle, the weapon the israeli military says is non-lethal, but has been responsible for at least five palestinian deaths this year, according to the human rights organization. >> fundamental principles in terms of firearms used by law enforcement officials provide that life fire may only be used when there's an imminent threat of death or serious injury. in other circumstances, the killings may be regarded as extra-judicial. in addition, as an occupying force, the israeli army should also be subject to several restrictions in terms of international law. >> several human rights organizations are arguing that full transparent investigation into all the killings and shootings must be held, otherwise, the israeli government itself could be complicit in deaths that have no legal justification in international or israeli law. >> we'll bring in mike now joining us from west jerusalem. >> it's a long way away from investigation, certainly into the wave of knife stabbings that have occurred in israel and occupied territory. as i mentioned there, the
11:06 am
israeli army has carried out one preliminary investigation into the death of the 13-year-old, but it is important to note statistics provided by human rights organizations within israel, that in 94% of cases launched by the army to investigate itself, only 94% are actually thrown out. in other words, only 6% of the investigations launched by the army into its own activities actually go forward in any way. the other 94% of simply ended, the case is closed, so the question of investigation, something not really being addressed by the israeli government at this particular point. the police, as we were told and as i mentioned saying no investigation is necessary in each of these, any of these stabbing attacks because the officers on the scene did perceive an immediate threat to their safety. >> thank you for that update from west jerusalem.
11:07 am
>> there have been more protests in the occupied went bank. the situation happen followed just outside of ramallah. >> today, there's again, this has been a flashpoint for the past few days. just in the past few minutes, that group of yacht that you can see behind us had pushed forward on to that road. immediately, the israelis pushed them back to where they are now. they managed actually to seize one of the palestinian youth and we did also see them shoot at some health workers who were trying to reach that area, where they're just across the road to pick up what we believe is a wounded palestinian. i have to say that these clashes here have been on going, but there are much more fierce clashes at the moment. according to the health ministry, the palestinian health ministry, 45 people so far have been wounded by live ammunition, and from what we understand from
11:08 am
reporters who are underground, the intensity of the clashes there is quite unprecedented. actually in this latest crisis, nablus had been by and large calm. this is the first day there are such confront is as there. there are also clashes in the north and we hear of clashes in bethlehem and hebron. >> early sunday, a pregnant woman and her young dear became the latest palestinians to be killed. they were killed in an israeli air strike in gaza. israel's army says it was targeting a hamas weapons factory. >> in the occupied west bank, israeli police say a palestinian woman attempted to set off a bomb in her car. they say the women tried to attack them after stopped at a checkpoint. she issues said to be critically injured. let's speak to a professor for national law at the hebron university, also former advisor
11:09 am
to security. thanks for being with us on the al jazeera news hour. as you're hearing us report, rights groups, including human rights watch accuse israel of unlawful force against palestinians, when you look at footage of a 19-year-old in occupied east jerusalem being shot as he tries to flee, a third-year-old in the galilee shot at point-blank range, does it make you, yourself question the rules of engagement that are being used by israel's military and the army? >> thank you. live fire is used only when there is a real defense to the person, self defense. this is true of israel police, it's true of everywhere in the world. what we are face i go stabbings intended to kill, throwing blocks at cars with civilians in therm and throwing fire bombs. these are life threatening situations. they are not -- live power is
11:10 am
never used in demonstrations. it is used when we face life threatens situations and already intention of the demonstrators is to kill. it's not a political demonstration throwing a fire bomb at a car. such situation-- >> walking on his way home to school and he is being killed by live bullets. the latest figure by the red crescent said 300 palestinians have been shot with live bullets recently. are they all life threatening situations? >> as far as i know, the case of a 13-year-old, he was shot by mistake and by the way, this can happen, when you have live fire, it can happen if police use live fire anywhere in the world. it's a tragedy, but it was caused by stabbings, by fire bombings, but accidents can happen. there was no guarantee that when live fire is used, innocent by standers won't be injured, and as far as in this case, the 13-year-old was an innocent
11:11 am
bystander, but the issue is with the wave of deliberate stabbings. >> according to human rights watch, lethal force should be used only when it's absolutely necessary by the occupying power, israel, and according to them, that is not the case. >> the answer is live power is used by the israel police exactly when there is a life threatening situation. it is not used when there is a demonstration people waving flags, but when people try and stab civilians and soldiers or throw fire bombs or throw rocket, that is a life threatening situation and the people who throw these bombs should take this into account. there is a danger to them. >> perhaps you can clarify to us what israel's obligations are under international law being an occupying power. >> first of all, a lot of the events have taken place within israel where there's no question of being an occupying power, but
11:12 am
the rules are the same, by the way. in both cases, uses of live fire against civilians only with a life threatening situation. otherwise live fire is not used by the israel police for the israel army in the west bank. >> what likelihood is there that israel will actually investigate what is going on right now, and these incidents that are taking place, how likely is it that they have a full transparent investigation into these killings and shootings will take place? >> >> when a civilian is being shot, it will be investigated. the immediate priority is preventing innocent people from being stabbed. a deliberate attempt to as i will israel civilians, again, throwing rocks at cars, fire bombs and stabbings are deliberate attempts and there's no pretense by the attackers
11:13 am
that they do it by mistake. >> allow me to interrupt, because you continue to speak about deliberate attempts but human rights watch have said that israel forces shot and wounded their research assistant, who was sitting and observing a demonstration outside ramallah in the occupied west bank. how is that deliberate? >> if it has been done, it shouldn't have been done, by mistake, it was an offense. it's offense against israel law to shoot an innocent by stander. there's no doubt about that. what i'm trying to say, it can be done by mistake. look at the police action where they have to use fire and anywhere in the world, you do get innocent by standers being hit. it's a tragedy, but the causes is not the police trying to protect people, it's that somebody's trying to murder. that's what we're tasing here. it's incitement by hamas and by the muslim brotherhood who want to try and incite violence.
11:14 am
it serves their purpose. it doesn't serve the purpose of israel or the palestinian people nor the palestinian authority, but hamas frankly doesn't care about that. they are deliberately inciting violence and it is a real tragedy for the palestinians and for the israelis. >> we'll have to leave it there. thank you for joining us from west jerusalem. >> coming up, the syrian military says its gaining ground against armed groups with the help of a foreign ally. >> tight security in guinea at people vote for president. >> in sport, how costly this was for the new york mets as they try to clinch their series against the los angeles doers. >> at-bat military said its air force strong the convoy of isil leader al baghdadi. we are following this from
11:15 am
baghdad. >> according to a statement from the iraqi military, isil leader abu bakr al-baghdadi was in a convoy that was targeted in an air strike by the iraqi air force as it was on its way to a meeting of senior isil commanders in the western iraqi town which is about five kilometers away from the border with syria. in this statement from the military, it said that it would release the names of those who were killed in that strike, however, it made the point of saying that it did not know the condition of baghdadi. over the past year, there have been several reports which have said that al baghdadi has been seriously wounded in various attacks by the iraqi military. those reports have either been denied by isil or no evidence to

11:17 am
>> the worst bombing in modern turkish history, 95 people killed and 65 people still in intensive care. now, reuters news agency is reporting that security sources are telling it that preliminary investigations suggest that there were two male suicide bombers and they were members of isil. security forces seem to have been able to trace them back. no claims of responsibility yet from any armed group. that seems to where the focus of the investigation is. this is a bombing that has shocked this country. we saw also a large protest today back in ankara, more of a gathering, really to express sympathy for those killed in this attack, but the investigation clearly focusing it seems on isil. doreen. >> after the attacks in the
11:18 am
southeast and northern iraq targeting p.k.k., what's been the response by the group? >> the turkish military has targeted p.k.k. locations in northern iraq and in southeastern turkey in attacks today on sunday. they say they've killed 49p.k.k. fighters in those attacks. we know the turkish military has joined the fight against isil, as well, but the majority of turkeys airstrikes have also been on p.k.k. positions, 49 people killed today, targeting a couple of weapons storage places and an underground bunker. they have also, though, been raids on suspected isil hideouts in turkey, three cities targeted today, 33 suspected members of isil have been detained by the authorities. as for the p.k.k., yes, it

11:21 am
now, isil is closer than ever to what was once syria's commercial capital. >> >> russia is hitting their rebels and not isil. the so-called friends of the opposition are providing little help with that we need immediate help to stop isil's advance and russian strikes. >> on the ground opposition groups are fighting back. they are promising that hama will be the graveyard for what they callle invading armies, but the russian backing is just as determined. it wants to end the presence of the opposition. >> before the campaign, the rebels had the upper hand and were threatening the government on a number of fronts, especially in the province. the campaign has now put the rebels on the defensive. they are facing pressure from many fronts, and from many enemies. al jazeera, beirut.

11:32 am
people's democratic party, the main kurdish party in turkey said the government is to blame for the attack. >> we still deem the turkish government responsible for not having controlled the air, not having stopped the attack. there is a very huge organization of intelligence, which is the heart of turkey's capital. the managers of public offices are around so that it wouldn't be so easy for any person with awesome an intent to approach this huge big rally, and you remember the previous attacks on
11:33 am
similar rallies, so the state should be taking all measures. we see there were no measures took with that we believe the president erdogan administration has somehow facilitated the attack or kept a blind eye on what's going to happen. >> we had hoped to put those allegations to turkey's ruling party but told a spokesperson was unavailable. >> the u.s. will offer money to the injured and families of those killed in a bombing of an afghan hospital. 22 civilians were killed when an air strike targeted the doctors without borders hospital in kunduz. the u.s. will also help pay to rebuild it. >> two reviews into the case of a white policeman in the u.s. who fatally shot a black boy

11:35 am
>> the use of antibiotics as a growth promoter is something we discourage countries to take steps to exit gradually, because at the end of the day, the antibiotic residual in the meat, in the seafood that you are buying will also, you know, give you, over time, the problem. >> we all have e-coli in our gut, but some strains cause diarrhea, kidney failure, even death. traditionally you would have treated that with penicillin, one of the first antibiotics discovered. penicillin causes the cell membranes to rupture, job done. the problem arises when patients don't take the full course of their antibiotics or the antibiotics are of poor quality, giving the bacteria the chance to develop a resistance to the drug.
11:36 am
if this happens, the drugs don't work and the drug resistant strain of bacteria can fast become dominant. >> the new law in california aims to help prevent the rise of these super bags. from january 1, 2018, antibiotics will only be allowed to given to animals for disease prevention, not to fatten them up. antibiotics will have to be ordered by a licensed vet and the state, food and agriculture department will monitor the sale and use of the drugs. in the u.s., about 2 million people a year are infected with drug resistant bacteria, about 23,000 die as a result. the problem is global and leading experts say the impact of superbugs will be felt most in developing countries. >> if we don't turn the tide on this, in 2050, there will be 10 million deaths a year, more than we have dying at the moment of cancer every year, and that that will be predominantly in the developing world, india, china, they will all suffer.
11:37 am

11:38 am
children nowadays don't want this. young people nowadays are on their cell phones all the time. >> none of his children are willing to take his place. the country's farmers are aging, the average filipino farmer is 59 years old, much of the youth today have ignored tilling because of its perceived hardship and because farmer families belong to the country's poor. the region in northern philippines are dependent on the agriculture sector, but the number of family farms are dwindling here. many of the farmers are small land holders who hold an average of two hectares. they say making their land profitable is difficult. there are no government subsidies here. more than 90% of farmers do not receive any assistance at all.
11:39 am
>> part of the difficulty is there are not enough farmers to cultivate the land. most of them are recruited from nearby provinces. >> it's a really hard job. it hurts physically. i don't want to stay in this job. i will find a different job for me. >> the younger generation are living in rural areas across the country and heading into the cities. a farmer's average annual salary is less than $500. many say that's not enough. the shortage of filipino farmers puts the country's food security at risk. the population of nearly 100 million people is growing at around 2% every year and projected to reach $120 million by 2025.
11:40 am
the philippines is already one of the world's biggest importer of rice, a food staple in a country that is largely agricultural. the economy has grown since the president took office in 2010. for farmers, the situation has not improved. that growth, they say, has not been inclusive. al jazeera, northern philippines. >> people in belarus have been voting in an election widely expected to keep the president in power. the long time leader has ruled for 21 years. in august, he pardoned six jailed political prisoners. months before that, he hosted ukraine peace talks. e.u. is said to be considering temporarily lifting sanctions against belarus imposed in 2010. >> the u.n. is set to investigate allegations that benefit cuts in the u.k. may have led to the deaths of disabled people. campaigners say there is
11:41 am
evidence they died after being denied government support. florence lee reports. >> jill has nothing but fond memories of the place she used to play with her brother david when they were children. now there's just a plaque in the ground and oak tree to remember him, planted outside the flats where he was found dead. this man served his country in the army, was part of a close knit family, nursed his mother through dementia. he suffered diabetes, but had his benefits stopped when he missed an appointment. with his electricity cut off, he had no money to keep his insulin cold in the fridge. he was found dead with a file of c.v.'s next to his body and about $5 to his name. >> the autopsy said there was nothing in his stomach. there was no food in his stomach. >> the system of getting disabled people to work was introduced by the former labor government and extended by the

current conservative one. joyce used to do assessments. at her home, she described a points system which forced her to pass people fit for work, who she, a trained nurse, thought were not, like the case of a woman who had lost her son and had then been raped on a across trip. >> i always try to make the point that being able to walk, all went against her. >> some of the cases to emerge from system are shocking. mark wood suffered severe mental ill insists, which for years doctors had said meant he could not hold down a job, but the assistors thought otherwise and stopped his money. terrified of leaving his house, he starved to death at home. >> do you think that government policies killed your brother? >> of course they did.
11:43 am
and if i were very cynical, i would say they are deliberate. they know in their hearts that the harshness have how they are applying the rules do not take into account mental health issues and have been told this repeatedly. >> this is in the constituency of the prime minister, david cameron. the british government insists there is no proof of disabled people dying as a direct result of having been declared fit for work and taken off disability benefits. equally, it is inarguable that disabled people taken off disability benefits and declared fit for work have died shortly afterwards, all of which has now piqued the interest of the beyond the nations. >> some small group of volunteers worker for disabled rights argue if the government doesn't want to find out the impact which its own policies, then maybe the u.n. will. >> we had response from the
11:44 am
government, always the same things, work is good for people and therefore we are trying. you just don't -- they don't and the real issue, that the system is harming people, and i would say sometimes it's killing people. >> separately, jill thompson launched a petition calling for an independent in chiropractory into whether government policies have killed the disabled in the name of austerity. she's also busy laying flowers on her brother's grave. lawrence lee, al jazeera. >> still ahead, cracking the code, some of the brightest minds get together to find out whose behind one of the most complicated puzzles on the internet. >> the mechanical misfortune that all but decided who would win the russian grand prix. details in a moment.

11:47 am
second by a baffling question, who is behind it. >> n.s.a. has been speculated as being mi6, c.i.a., terrorist groups like al-qaeda. another possibility is it's a big hoax. >> solving the puzzle requires programming, hidden codes, art and literature and obscure poetry. one group had to look up information like this taped to telephone poles and sold in warsaw. it started in 2012 when an internet buzzing was published claiming to be recruiting highly intelligent people. >> this looks like a text message but is a digital image and when you look at it in a text viewer to see the original programming language, it contains a hidden message. >> the message is at the end of the file, this his the message, it's completely ignored by the j peg viewer. >> google said the fourth emperor of rome, using

the key and standard american code to translate letters into the ones and zeroes, they turned this string of gibberish into this web address, a picture of a duck. inside that image was another message, leading them to this page and so on and so on. the f.b.i. is so concerned about hidden messages, they asked to explore what can be hidden in an audio message. the answer? a lot. ♪ >> that is a clean windows xp shut down sound. ♪ >> this one sounds identical, but hidden in the programming language is an entire lecture he gives in class. the audio file is exactly the same size. those who solve the puzzles can join the secretive organization. there have now been three puzzles, each on january 4, 2012, 2013 and 2014. this year, something even more mysterious happened. nothing. there was no puzzle. >> they've finally gotten tired or maybe whoever was doing it
