5:02 pm
violence with a palestinian taken to hospital after an alleged knife attack there. there were two incidents a bit earlier on. mean while, in occupied east jerusalem, a 16-year-old palestinian was shot dead. the old city has been at the heart of the renewed fighting. let's give coverage with hoda live for us now in ramallah in the west bank. what do we know about this latest attack at the columbia check point in the west bank? >> well, like is often the case, there are two stories going around. now, according to the israeli authorities, a 23-year-old palestinian staementd to stab annan israeli border soldier whole in the pedestrian terminal of that checkpoi checkpoint. the statement goes on by saying that he was first shot and
5:03 pm
laying wounded on the ground. that's when a bomb expert came to check the young man laying on the ground. at that point, the young man pulled out another man and tried to attack. at that point, he was shot dead. there were people crossing in to ramallah and witnessed those people say that actually, this young man was walking behind an israeli soldier. maybe the israelti soldier panicked or wanted to stab the shoulder and turned around and shot him. there are pictures circulate okay social media at the moment still. they show a young man bleeding on the ground. but there is no knife next to him. so this is what we know at the moment. you know, lately, it's been the case where every kind of stabbing or alleged stabbing,
5:04 pm
there are two sides of the story. each side will believe its own story, and this only raises really the general atmosphere, of tension and fear that exists on both sides of the divide. >> live for us in ramal a, well, in all, 42 palestinians and seven israelis have been killed since violence escalated two weeks ago. mike hanna has more now about saturday's developments from occupied east jerusalem. >> one of the palestinian dead came from this neighborhood and was shot and killed in the adjoining israeli settlement. one. most heavily blockaded parts of occupied east jerusalem. a 16-year-old there gained easy access to the settlements and that raises the effectiveness offis's closure policy. questions about hebron. this video taken shortly
5:05 pm
afterwards shows a jewish settler in white clothes still waving his gun. no attempt is made by the soldiers to disarm him and several residents allege a knife was placed on the positibody. palestinian the settler has just shot. the deep divide between israeli and palestinian is reflected in an urgent meeting of the u.n. security council where the representatives of each side exchanged blame for the crisis. the israeli prime minister is set to meet the u.s. secretary of state, john kerry on wednesday and will prentice's view of events. in palestinian eyes, the root cause lies in israel's control of the old city and n particular, the control it exercises over access to the on mosque compound. the international calls court calls for leaders to restore calm dealing with the consequences rather than the cause and palestinian leaders insist the focus of diplomacy
5:06 pm
should be the core issue. what exactly does israel mean when it says it intends preserving the status quote of the temple mount. the arrangements by which access is given to themos mosque compound. mike hannah in occupied east jerusalem. >> let's bring in al jazeera's senior political analyst who is in our washingtons d.c. bureau. events today suggest there hasn't been any slow down in the violence. what's your view? could the unrest get worse still before it gets better? it could get worse or worser as they would say in washington simply because it doesn't seem like there is a political solution in the horizon. the united states does not show any real intention or will to put the sufficient pressure otisisis to really go back to a
5:07 pm
negotiation process that involves the lil settlement in order to pave the way for a two-state solution where palestinians can leave in freedom from occupation. that's certainly not on the agenda. the only thing the americans are saying here in washington is some vague wording about calming the situation over there. so certainly, that's nots going to contribute to the kind of stibltty one looks for. i am sure palestinians will, you know, sooner or later run out of young people ready to die in order to harman israeli or go to the streets and face an israeli army guat the end of the day, the root causes of this thing, which is occupation, settlement and the disposition that continues. what about the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu? how much pref pressure is he under to bring this violence to
5:08 pm
an end? paradoxically, he is not under real pressure, certainly not from the united states. on the other hand, he is under some serious pressure from the settler community in the west bank and east jerusalem. and that's something our viewers around the world don't know enough about. today a good number of the ministers in his government, a good number of his party and a good number of civilians in the kinnesset in theisitsi parliament as well as part of his military units are settlers. perhaps up to 20%, and that is a very high number. so these people, these illegal it cowboys in the occupied territory are taking things into their hands and now, they have a huge wait and are able to influence prime minister netanyahu. he is already a radical politician coming from a zinist perspective but already there are these new israelis, new
5:09 pm
cowboys, new malitias in the west bank their taking things into their hands and they have huge anything else weight in west jerusalem and 'til tel aviv and hence, i think we will see more and more of that. that's why prime minister netanyahu is taking that kind of even more hawkish thaing than hawkish approach to the situation. >> does it follow then that what we are seeing now, is it likely to trump at a time israeli government to go beyond conflict management, or does it then just reinforce exactly what these protesters are struggling against? >> so we have these two levels of the conversation in israel. number 1 is you have the lieshingsz for example, of the mayor of jerusalem, you know, so-called may offer jerusalem who is telling israelis, take out your arms and go on to the streets as if it is the new wild west. he is actually, you know, asking israelis to take things into
5:10 pm
their own hands and we know that a lot offisis, if not most israelis are armed. certainly the settlers are which means that this could lead to a bloodbath in the country. and then there is the other ones who, of course, need to maintain the kind of diplomat dpromatic relationship with western europe and the u.s. because that's where they are getting the help and trade and investment and so on and so forth. they are trying to show as if they are the victims of the pal stipians, which is kind of patel etic to be honest with you. i say path t pathetic for an ocg country. a nuclear power, the most formidable power, military power in the middle east, to be, you know, to be shouting or crying victim to a young, you know, bunch of young palestinians, and yet prime minister netanyahu is now asking the king of jordan and the president of egypt, so-called president of egypt to interfere with the palestinian
5:11 pm
authority in order to stop the escalation. unfortunately, a lot of that is not working. as we have seen, as i have said and i have seen before, already we have seen that happening already since 1988, miriam, in the first intafata. where he asked them to break the bones of young palestinians. 30 years later, they are asking them to shoot at young palestinians. it seems neither is helping. will anyone conclude more of the same is not helping and hence, it's just crazy? it's just crazy to continue to repeat the same thing expecting different results? >> all right, thank you very much, avshlingsz senior political analyst from washington, d.c. marwan bashara. to other top stories, a 5-year-old girl and a two and a half-year-old been raped in separate incidents in the indian capital. one of the children was gang raped and in another incident, a routine age girl has hanged herself after allegedly being

5:32 pm
on him in the movemeuntains of northern mexico, his birthplace and regular hideout. after heavy helicopter fire, soldiers moved in. it was too late. once again, the leader of the powerful sineloa cartel. although not unscathed. authorities say he was wounded in the head and leg while making his get away. the missed opportunity came days before awed he yes was leaked of his greatest evening ape this july. the tunnelling it sound can be heard as can the voices of the men who came to whisk the drug lord through the hole underneath his bathroom and out of the prison walls. the guards didn't react to the barrage of noise until long after he vein issued. it was the second time he had escaped from a mexican jail. >> i has deeply embarrassed the mexican government. his latest escape from prinlz
5:33 pm
became a symbol of the corruption and incompetence that plagues authorities here at least recapturing the drug lord would in some way compensate for that loss of credibility. >> despite his long list of crimes including murder, money lau laundering and organized crime, he is turning into something of an anti-hero, the next cans fed up with their under performing government. the fact that el chappo maveningz has turned into a popular f mask for hal loween here john hullman, al jazeera, mexico city. joining us now via skype from la cruz in the u.s. state of new mexico, a visiting professor at the new mexico state university and an expert in drug cartels. thanks very much for speaking to us. it would seem that the myth surrounding el chappo only seems to grow ever stronger. will he ever be caught, do you
5:34 pm
think? >> i think we have seen a story developing that's strange earn fiction. i think it's very difficult to believe under the circumstances of the drug war and the kind of priority it has in mexican national policy and in the policy of the u.s. that this, these evening ape did can continue to happen. what this suggests is that there are some gaps and flaws in the official narrative, that the story that mexico is trying to market abroad about el chappo may be at least incomplete and doesn't reflect the extent to which the government, itself, is complicit and symbol for the kinds of crimes that are characterize -- have characterized mexico over the last few years that are usually attributed to the drug war but go much deeper. >> in other words, they don't really want to capture him? >> i think what's been suggested is that there is a very
5:35 pm
different policy that the government pursues as to the cartel and the interests that el chappo represents and other interests of competing cartels and that the government's policy in effect seems to be leaning to one side and has been very weak as far as el chappo is concerned. i think it's also interesting that the stories, these reports about him getting away one more time, i mean however much they may be substantiated, emerge immediately after just a few days ago other stories emerged about how sophisticated his escape was and that it not only included the tunnel that was alluded to, but, also, apparently at plane that was waiting for him as he emerged from the tunnel. so again, this is really cinematic in scope. >> you alluded to it there in
5:36 pm
what you were telling us. obviously he escaped from prison a couple of months ago. not the first time he slipped through the fingers of the authorities. when you look at the network of intimidation that he wields and that he has at and in the corruption within the government, itself, is there something that the authorities in mexico will ever be able to really get a handle on? >> this is a question about really the next government and getting a handle on its self. i think if there is anything that's clear and you can see this, for example, in the human rights reports of the united nations reflected in the recent visit of the u.n. high commissioner for refugees. in the most recent reports of the u.n. committee to torture, et cetera, what you can see is a very deeply engrained pattern of corruption, as you have alluded to, that cuts across every level
5:37 pm
and every dimension of the mexican state. this includes the military, the police and, of course, the ci l civilian authorities. that's what's reflected that complicity and ultimate responsibility of the state is what poftz tours as to these issues. these are the finger prints we need to keep our focus on. this is what koeblings the government. not just issues related to the drug war but to deeper human rights violations as well. over 150,000 killed since 2007, over 26,000 disappeared in what we might describe as the syria of the western hemisphere and very serious crimes like the 43 missing students. it's the government that is complicit or responsible. >> lots of interconnected issues surrounding the cartels that affects the people there >> many people there.
