5:05 pm
a lot of kurdish anger here. there's so much grief and shock. it's a worrying development in turkey. it's worrying at a time when it is ensnared in more and more conflict. that is something causing consternation. they are going after i.s.i.l., the workers party, p.k.k. in northern iraq and south-eastern turkey, and more and more forces are killed by the p.k.k. because the peace process has all but collapse said. so many different conflicts and fronts at a time when anger is rising towards the government israel proposed emergency measures as the violence increased. the proposal called minimum sentences that closed rocks and firebombs. in the latest, two soldiers were wounded in an attack near a
5:06 pm
kibbutz near israel. this began at the start of october when two israeli settlers were shot and killed. 24 palestinians had been killed. five israelis died. only sunday, an israeli air strike in gaza led to the death of a pregnant woman and her 3-year-old daughter, targetting two weapons. human rights watch accused israel of environmental law governing the use of lethal force. the fall of the cabinet. here is mike hanna in west jerusalem. >> it's a first full cabinet meeting in three weeks, and in the intervening time there has been enough violence in occupied territories and in israel itself. four israelis have been killed in support attic and random -- sporadic and random knife attack. in most cases they were shot dead on the scene and a number
5:07 pm
of demonstrators have been killed by israeli forces. the rising fatality figures raise questions by human rights organizations, about the rules of engagement applied by the israeli army and police. >> this is footage of a person attempting to flee after stabbing a young israeli. the israeli civilians shout "shoot him, kill him." and the police opened fire, though there's no apparent immediate threat a similar situation involving a 30-year-olds arab woman, police are shouting at israel "drop the knife, drop the knife", instead of attempting an arrest... ..they open fire at pointblank range. yet in the south an israeli that attacks four palestinians in different locations is not
5:08 pm
gunned down, but arrested. israeli place say responses are determined by the specifics of each incident. facing situations of life threatening situation and say there's no investigations into the police shootings. the major threat at the moment is the lone wolf palestinian, female or male coming inside jerusalem or the old city and continuing the pattern. that's what we are dealing with. coming down as hard as possible. >> the israeli occupying army is subject to military escalations. the palestinian red crescent says 300 palestinians vfr shot with live bullets. one was a 13-year-old. in a preliminary investigation, the israeli army says he was mistakenly killed by sniper fire. his mother said the boy was on his way home from school and there was no demonstrations in
5:09 pm
the area. >> translation: my second went to school like the other kids. he finished school and was on his way home. they shot him. there was no demonstrations in the camp. >> reporter: it was confirmed that the boy was killed by a .22 bullet. a weapons israeli military said was unequal. one that was responsible for five palestinian death, according to the bethlehem human rights organization. the united nations specified fundamental principles. these provide that live fire may only be used when within imminent threat of death or serious injury. in other circumstances, the killings may be regarded as extra judicial. as an occupying force, the israeli army should be subject to the several restrictions in terms of international law. >> reporter: and several human rights organizations argue that
5:10 pm
the investigation in all shootings must be held. otherwise the israeli government could be complicit in death, with no justification with international or israeli law in fact, after a report, there was another stabbing incident outside a kibbutz in the north of israel. four israelis are injured. two of them soldiers, here is an update from mike hanna. >> reporter: in this particular case, the police say, the assailant was arrested. in a number of these incidents assailants have been shot dead on the spot. leading to claims by several human rights organizations that police are using force in terms of dealing with the issue, the police say that each and every situation is dealt with as the situation demands. they insist that in each of the cases where palestinians have been shot and killed, the police
5:11 pm
officers felt their lives threatened or the lives of those close boy. again, allegations made by human rights organizations unlikely to be any reaction from the israeli government, formal reaction. instead, at the end of a meeting the israeli government announces new legislation will be introduced. this is legislation that establishes prison sentences for those that carry out attacks with stones and fire crackers or any object. also the parents of minors take part in such activities will be fine. this legislation aimed at curtailing the activities of those that wish to demonstrate, and one part of the israeli population not satisfied with the current situation at all. >> the palestinian israeli segment, 20% of the population.
5:12 pm
they called for a strike on tuesday to protest against the binyamin netanyahu government. demonstrations planned in the palestinian areas through the course of the week. >> from mike hanna who has more on the condepron stations in the -- confrontations in the occupied west bank. >> there's a 13-year-old who died from wounds during the clashes. north ramallah with israeli defense. the hospital tells us that he was hit by a rubber bullet in his neck, and he died once he reached a hospital. throughout the day there has been clashes a bit, everywhere, all over the occupied west bank, the moment violent one and intense ones were in nablus, where according to medical sources, 45 people were injured with live ammunition.
5:13 pm
there were also clashes in bethlehem and hebron. i have to say that all of these protests turned into confrontations - how organized, really, either by universities, or it's really the initiative of the young people who are extremely frustrated and decide to go to these areas of confrontation, usually around checkpoints where there's the presence of the israeli army: tomorrow there'll be renewed clashes, more intense than that of today dozens were at the funeral of a pregnant woman and her 3-year-old woman killed by an israeli air strike. hamas were targetting a rocket
5:14 pm
facility. the woman and her child lived near the site and were killed when their house collapsed. coming up on the newshour - syrian rebels struggling to defend their territories as i.s.i.l. forces advance on aleppo. >> bell awe russians cast their vote, extending 21 years in power. >> and what happened to the coastaler at the president's cup. we'll tell you if you stay with us, but you might be able to guess. the word from the iraqi military is that its air force hit a convoy which it believes was carrying abu bakr al-baghdadi. it was in a town in the western province of anbar, and military
5:15 pm
sources say a number was killed, but abu bakr al-baghdadi was not among them. imtiaz tyab has been following the story. he's in baghdad. >> scoring to a statement from the military, i.s.i.l. leader abu bakr al-baghdadi was in a convoy targeted by an air strike, as it was on its way to a meeting of senior i.s.i.l. commanders in the western town, 5km away from the border with syria. now, in this statement from the military it said that it would release the names of those killed, but made the point of saying it did not know the condition of baghdadi. it needs to be said over the past year there has been reports saying abu bakr al-baghdadi had
5:16 pm
been wounded in various attacks. those reports have either been denied by i.s.i.l., or no evidence was ever presented to prove that abu bakr al-baghdadi was in serious condition or seriously poor health condition. it lends to the mystique of a man who is rarely seen in public. a man who is the most wanted in the world. a man who has a $10 million bounty in his head. >> let's talk to max, terrorist analyst and professor at nearby university, boston, joining us on skype. whether baghdadi is alive or dead, we'll talk of that in a minute. the fact remains this is a meeting of i.s.i.s., i.s.i.l. senior commanders that abu bakr al-baghdadi was on his way, and a number of i.s.i.l. commanders died in this.
5:17 pm
it is not a significant victory for those trying to driveway the islamic state of iraq and levant if this has happened? >> i think it's a good thing. whenever we can take out the leaders of terrorist groups, you know, within terrorist groups, not all people are the same. like in most organizations, those that rise to the top in general are the more skilled ones, if abu bakr al-baghdadi is not taken out, the fact that we have eight other high level i.s.i.s. guys, i think, is important. and it will give the iraqi military a boost in terms of moral and enthusiasm which they need. the reality is the situation on the ground is moving slower than anticipating. if abu bakr al-baghdadi is not killed. the moral boost may be
5:18 pm
worthwhile. how much has been incapacitated, how much of a boost is that. is that significant in the terms of leadership of i.s.i.l.? >> i don't think he is that significant. in the past we thought that he had been killed. in april we thought that u.s.-led coalition bombed and killed him. in november, the iraqi military said they had taken him out. it turns out that they been alive. we think they'd been alive. turns out he's been dead, like the leader mullah omar. the fact that we can't be sure whether these guys are alive or dead really testifies to their limited role within the organization. >> is there nothing that the forces taking on i.s.i.l. can do, other than destroy the fighters to knock back this
5:19 pm
group's determination to expand its calafat? >> well, i think that there's really no secret about what is required for counterinsurgency success. it's not just, you know, air campaigns. you need bots on the ground for sure. in the two main areas where we had success, we have combined air power with boots on the ground. in iraq, as well as in syria, that is really what is needed the most. there's no question that the u.s. led collision has command of the skies. the problem is getting iraq in particular, all the dispirit groups, to work together in a unified fashion. that's really what is needed, and the air power is helpful.
5:20 pm
not in isolation. >> max abrahams, thank you. >> any time. >> the russian president had a meeting with saudi arabia's defence minister to talk about the shared aim of defeating i.s.i.l. air strikes destroyed 53 positions. moscow says a meeting with saudi arabia was held to address riyadh's concerns and both share the objective of presenting a calafat in syria. as the russian air strikes intensified they are struggling to defend their territories. >> they are pushing into opposition territory. the syrian forces are said to have taken ground. this is the first major assault by the syrian army and the russian air force since moscow
5:21 pm
intervened. from the syrian government the threat is not from i.s.i.l., but opposition groups. >> translation: rebels are losing. they are coming under attack from the syrian regime, i.s.i.l., the russian army. the russian air strikes are weakening the rebels, opposition is no longer advancing, about the is hanging on to territory, especially in aleppo. >> in aleppo, the opposition has lost ground. they stormed into the countryside, capturing the villages. it is a significant advance. the opposition says i.s.i.l. launched the assault while rebel forces were focused on reinforcing other fronts. this is the only road leading to districts in aleppo districts. the army is within firing range of the road, cutting it off within besieged areas of the city. i.s.i.l. is total than ever to
5:22 pm
what was once a syrian capital. syrians in general, and aleppo fear the war was abandoned. russia is hitting rebels. the so-called friends of the opposition will have little help. immediate help to stop i.s.i.l. advances and strikes. >> on the ground opposition groups are fighting back, and are promising that hamas will be the graveyard for invading armies. the government with russian backing is 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, sales in the province of latakia. the campaign put the rebels on the defensive. they are facing pressure from many fronts, and from many enemies. a white police officer who shot and killed a black 12-year-old boy carrying a toy
5:23 pm
gun in the u.s. was justified in his actions, according to two outside experts. the conclusion coming ahead of a decision on whether criminal charges are warranted in the case of tamir rice. alan fisher reports. >> reporter: it was a video shocking the u.s. and the world, a 12-year-old playing in a park with a gun. it missed the orang part that indicates it is a toy. it score are scared the man in the background to call the police. he said it was probably fake. but that was not passed on to the officer who fired the fatal shots within seconds of arriving on the scene, or his partner. he had no idea the victim was 12 years old. >> >> reporter: anger brought
5:24 pm
protesters on to the streets. it was seen as a case of excessive police violence against the black community. >> i want to thank everyone for supporting my little broth ir. i don't know why he did that. he was 12. he wanted to play basketball local prosecutors commissioned expert reports into the incident. they have been released. >> former denver posterior wrote that there could be no doubt that the death was tragic, and when one considers his age, heart-breaking. for all reasons scuffed. i can declare: the forker fbi agent concluded: tamir rice's family say the report is part of a whitewash.
5:25 pm
a grand jury will decide if the police officer involved will be charged the voting is over until belarus's presidential elections. exit polls suggest as many thought the president has got this time more than 80% of the vote. meaning he won a fifth victory in the former soviet republic. he's been in power for 21 years. neve barker reports. >> reporter: as president luca schenko cast his vote, there was little doubt over the result. despite falling wages, he has held on to power for two decades, making him europe said's longest running leader and belarus europe's last dictatorship. he faces three rivals for the presidency, and they are expected to make little impact.
5:26 pm
but he'll watch for a drop in support. >> translation: it will be bad in less people vote for me, it means people are leaving me. it's important to hold on to the level of support i have in previous elections. >> reporter: five years ago his re-election led to mass pro and the gaoling of figures. economic sanctions have been imposed on officials and companies. >> since then, he has cast himself ass the guarantor of stability. for a while the political opponents continue to be gaoled. the e.u. says it will temporarily lift sanctions providing the election takes place without incident.
5:27 pm
opposition figures warned acairns the move. >> it doesn't matter how we vote. as stalin says it's not important who votes or how. what is important is who counts the vote. i think that is the case. i don't think we can expect any surprises. >> in recent years, they capitalized on intentions, acting as a mediator in peace talks. tactics helped to enhance an image adding to the popularity at home. in is never about whether head win, but how much. neave barker, al jazeera. >> stay with us, you're watching the newshour - this is coming up, a big task for nepal's new prime minister, with anti-constitution processes and food shortages. bolivia demanding a supply.

5:32 pm
you have studied, i've reported on previous insurrections. we see the start of something that could or could not become bigger. what would make this turn into a new intifada. >> what is unique about the current tensions is that more and more young palestinians are taking actions into their own hands. to centralize legalists, those between 17 and 23 years old. major parties, their influence over the young men. and authorities in fatah or hamas. more palestinian students, and, in fact, palestinians are joining the process. these are taking actions into their own hand by stabbing some israelis over the last few weeks. they feel that they are getting
5:33 pm
no representation. their elders, the palestinian politicians are letting them down. are they able to communicate amongst themselves more effectively because they have the means of mass communication. they spread like wildfire. centralized leadership is a communication from the bottom up. it's the organized younger on their own. it's a bottom-up as opposed to top-doug. though the spark was disagreements and confrontations over religious, the shrine and al-aqsa in september, the structural question is bigger. the lack of hope. palestinians feel squeezed by the occupation, by the encroaching jewish settlements in a land, blockage in the system. binyamin netanyahu does whatever he wants, there is no accountability so, really, even though the spark was - i mean, the conversation over the
5:34 pm
religious bases, this is about occupation, and the young decided to take action. >> because we have been here before. they've been there before. it's been young people protesting on the streets. what i'm wondering is while you talk about the bottom up, is there anyone that ferments that, that sees an advantage to be gained to see the young on the streets. they, themselves, are dissatisfied with the way the peace process is lack of it is going. >> we know that the palestinian president has been calling not to protest. not to use violence against israelis, so the palestinian authority has done everything in its power to prevent such a movement taking place. hamas has been calling for protest. these are not hamas supporters. they are individual palestinians, young ones fed up with the status quo. >> you believe it's as simple as
5:35 pm
that, no one is encouraging them to a political advantage. >> of course there's incitement. palestinian leaders, that's not the question. there has been incitement before. the question is why not. the reason why it's now, it's a critical mass of young palestinians who are fed up. taking action into their own hands, who feel squeezed by the occupation. no hope, blockage in the system, and that is why this particularly intifada decentralized the leadership, it's taking place. whether it spirals out of the control it is gathering steam and momentum we'll stay in touch with you. thank you very much now to guinea, voters have been casting ballots in what is only the second presidential election since the country became independent. >> the current leader is favoured to win. it's a second term.

5:37 pm
united nations. there are campaign posters on the streets not just of the capital, but many small mining towns. there's reports of fighting, riots and unrest. >> there has been dancing in the streets with candidates receiving a warm welcome. >> opposition candidates who some see as a front runner was among those who wanted the elections postponed. they said voting cards have not been distributed, and not divided. the court rejected the plea, and they asked supporters to participate. >> i call on everyone who has yet to collect the cards to do so immediately. to accomplish civic duty. 72 leaders are part of a delegation monitoring the vote.

nepal depends on imports from india, and not much has been moving for the past two weeks after india said that it, too, was not happy with the constitution. and, of course, the prime minister also has to deal with the aftereffects of the earthquake, and people are struggling to survive in the mountains. >> reporter: for millions of poor people in india, you can only imagine the daily struggle leaving no time for creative expression. as discovered in new delhi, there is one teacher changing mind-sets and brightening in the futures. one class at a time. >> every brush stroke is an exercise in perfection. for six years he's been coming to the art school. the facilities are basic to say

the least. but exposure to colours and creatisties inspired him to pursue a career in art. >> translation: i want to be an art teacher. at the school where i study. there are art teachers, but not at the level where they know everything. >> this is the inspirational teacher. in doing so, dared them to challenge social norms. so for 30 years they taught students from slums how to draw, paint and sculpt. they saw them only to see behind the limitations of poverty. art is a gift from god. you don't have to learn it. i don't teach them anything, i nurture what is in their hearts, whatever is inside of them. we don't have a syllabus.
5:42 pm
>> reporter: it's been hard work to convince people to experiment with art. in this community most worked labour intensive jobs, and art is seen as a frivolous hobby. art can be a springboard to a diverse range of opportunities. often unimagined by children that call this area home. >> based on a helping hand 14 years ago. they went to college to study fine art. today he's a professional artist who literally draws inspiration from the surroundings. from security checks to modern interpretation to devotion to the thret wise monkeys, see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. they have big dreams. >> there's an artist who is the richest artist in of the world.
