5:02 pm
throwing stones in israeli forces in bethlehem, similar scenes, and near ramallah, and later developments on tuesday the army said that two palestinians were shot dead after trying to stab soldiers. in all, five palestinians died on tuesday. the u.n. secretary general has been there pushing, he said, for peace, urging palestinians and israelis to step back from what he calls a dangerous abyss. we'll be live in jerusalem in just a moment after andrew simmons reports from bethlehem in the occupied west bank. >> in ramallah ban ki-moon is meeting with the palestinian president on wednesday. this is the message from the youth godding each other on. it's long been a lethal cat and mouse game. soldier versus protesters in the occupied west bank. and this woman, who left her children at home to come here, said that throwing stones is the
5:03 pm
only way she can express herself. >> this is not life. this is not real life. it is not life any more. it is a life for only israelis. if you're palestinian, you have no right to live. you have no right to move. you have no right to travel. you have no right even to have any hope in this life. >> in bethlehem israeli soldiers had clashed with larger crowds of demonstrators. now driven back from a separation line into the distance. [ gunfire ] and so with the back rag barrage of tear gas, the israeli army holds it's ground. this is the spot they're trying to get to, the bethlehem separated wall. one of the landmarks of occupation. >> the tear gas was relentless, and the plastic-coated steel bullets cause injuries.
5:04 pm
but protesters hit back but could not get as far as the separation wall. there were only a few who broke through. one with a molotov cocktail. it landed besides the al jazeera tripod. we managed to move a meter away before it ignited. the man responsible made a run for it. these young palestinians continue their protests every day and every night. they say they'll never give up. andrew simmons, al jazeera, bethlehem in the occupied west bank. >> stephanie sy live for news west jerusalem. we'll talk about what we've just seen in andrew's package in just a moment, but bring us up to speed with the very latest developments. >> well, there's one particular incident that is causing real consequences on the ground. it happened in the last couple of hours.
5:05 pm
it's the fourth i want in the occupied west bank. there are two very different narratives. let me break it down for you. two palestinian teenagers shot and killed by the israeli army in hebron near the pebro h, b rohini mosque. two palestinians approached soldiers, tried to stab them and they were shot. palestinians are saying another story. they say these boys were not armed with a knife. they did not establish t try not try to stab them. and they were shot and killed. hebron is notoriously tense when it comes to the back and forth between the settlers and the palestinians. but the consequences are being
5:06 pm
felt. it's extremely difficult to verify what is happening. we hear from our source on the ground that there is violent competition between palestinians and the israeli army. and we've heard a statement where they've condemned the killing of two teenagers and vow retaliation. as you mentioned earlier the diplomatic push very serious developments on the ground. extremely tense. very difficult to confirm what exactly happened. but again we're having violent confrontations. and we hear of fire being used. >> there is a very difficult job. when they talk to the israeli prime minister they can direct comments straight to the very top. but when he's talking to the palestinians and saying he has got to be calm, who is he aiming his comments. it's not the palestinian leadership that is provoking the
5:07 pm
palestinians are doing. this is something that is happening very much on the ground and would be very difficult to control. >> absolutely. you've hit the nail on the head as we're seeing happening here. it is man to man. it's not organized in any way that we've seen with massive operatings in the past. but it's unpredictable. and what you really see on the ground. for example here in jerusalem, people will tell you on both sides that they are terrified of each other. there is extreme suspicion. and this is very difficult to address. the palestinians have lost faith. especially in their leadership. even if we have this diplomatic push. they come back with some kind of narrative, crucial thal aqsa mosque compound, the temple mount, and it doesn't really matter all this talk. the feeling on the ground when it comes to the palestinians is that they have gained nothing
5:08 pm
that palestinians state the end of the occupation is nowhere in sight. the israeli government is not genuine about it. it's difficult to see what we're seeing now will end. we'll see violence eastbound and flow. however, at in point in time i think the question that needs to be answered is this going to become the new normal. it's so unpredictable. with the extreme measures israel is taking, if you look at east jerusalem, for example, now, people will tell you that that could have the opposite effect. instead of calming you will insight more individuals to take matters in their own hands. an difficult tense situation on the ground and difficult to see how diplomatically that can be addressed, and how trust and hope can be brought back to the ground to think that there is any way out of the occupation. >> well, we thank you. thank you very much, indeed, from west jerusalem.
5:09 pm
stephanie dekker reporting there. >> the u.s. and russia have agreed on rules and restrictions they say to prevent any kind of accident between thei them. >> if the russians didn't want many details put out even though reporters were asking mr. cook to give details such as hoe close aircraft can get to each other without it being considered some sort of incident, cook wouldn't give any details. and so as you might expect that's making it a little difficult for people to judge just how effective this memorandum of understanding is going to be. that said, david there, is a signed agreement signed by u.s. and russian military officials on tuesday that basically spells
5:10 pm
out the rules of the road or in this case, the rules of the air space over syria. as you know both the russians and the u.s.-led coalition are conducting airstrikes ostensibly against isil. but the u.s. has long suspected that russia isn't doing so. this is more of what peter cook told reporters earlier on tuesday. >> today senior officials from the department of defense and the russian ministry of defense signed a recommend ran dumb of understanding to reduce risk of flight. the mou includes specific safety protocols for crews to follow maintaining airmanship at all times, use of specific communication frequencies and the establishment of a communication line on the ground. >> he's talking about the communication line on the ground. that's one con crete things we
5:11 pm
did get. this is a ho hotline if things go wrong up right. >> that's right. to prevent situations from worsening if they're turning bad or prevent incidents happening from the first place. however, it is important to note that according to peter cook this agreement does not mean that the u.s.-led coalition and the russians are in any way coordinating their operations against isil inside syria. it also does not cover any airstrikes that are taking place inside iraq. right now that is simply being done by the u.s.-led coalition. but as we all know the russians and iraq and iran have also agreed to form another alliance, and ostensibly there could be russian-led airstrikes inside iraq. it is important to note that
5:12 pm
this memorandum of understanding does not involve the syrian government at all. there has been understanding between the syrians and americans to stay out of each other's way once the u.s. started it's air campaign back in september, 2014. but it is not an actually party to this deal. that does raise concerns if the syrians were to start launching their own airstrikes in the northeastern part of the country. that's where the u.s.-led coalition is. >> thanks, roz. >> 300 civilians have been killed by the russian airstrikes in syria in the last three weeks , and at least 45 people have been killed in attacks on latakia province. it has been a stronghold and key target for the russian air campaign. more from caroline malone.
5:13 pm
>> airstrikes like these have killed a number of civilians in syria. the jets have killed many people since fighting began more than four years ago but these are part of the recent campaign by the russian military. moscow's defense ministry said that they hit workshops by what it calls militants. between idlib and latakia. opposition groups say they destroyed an armored personnel carrier. white the news agency said that the number they took outside of aleppo back by air cover from russian jets. the violence has forced 45 people from the region in the last few days. >> the morning there were rockets and barrel bombs. they're using all kinds of heavy weapons against us. >> they wouldn't have watc much
5:14 pm
of a chance if they had stayed. this is what is left of the area. most of the victims are civilians. aleppo is 50 kilometers from turkey and was once an industrial and financial hub. it has been the focus of a three-way fight between syrian rebels, regime forces and isil fighters for months. [ explosion ] now that russia is involved in a fight from the air, there may be a change in the power on the ground. there is already an impact on people living here. as more of them are forced to runaway from home. caroline malone, al jazeera. >> you're watching the news hour. coming up france far right leader goes on trial for comments made about muslims praying in public. also, the next prime

5:16 pm
germany. seen here in a recent trip to the country thinks that the country can do better and he wants china to be their second biggest trading partner by 2025. charlie angelo reports from central london. >> britain has rolled out the red carpet for president xi treating him to a procession with the queen through central london. at the start of his four-day visit he was given the rare honor to address the house and parliament. >> parliamenparliamentariens are the quee cream of society. i hope you'll continue to promote the u.k. relations with china, strengthen our friendship and support our cooperation, and i hope you'll build a bridge of understanding and create a brighter and promising future
5:17 pm
for our bilateral ties. >> ministers expect president xi to endorse $45 billion in trade and investment deals as they look for cash for projects for high speed rail links to power stations. >> there will be big announcements i have no doubt in terms of energy, infrastructure, health, finance, quite a wide range of sectors, and it's an opportunity to engage in lots of different levels. >> not everyone wants a closer relationship with china. protesting outside of buckingham pal are human rights groups. >> in the last three years xi jinping's presidency has been an alarming deterration in an already poor human rights situation. earlier this year several
5:18 pm
hundred have been arrested, many have been released, but 20 remain and did not get access to lawyers. >> there have been talks of human rights are unlikely to be the topic of conversation. over the next few days president xi will visit companies and take a trip to manchester where david cameron hopes to make a joint announcement of more investments that will make britain more competitive. both sides are hoping that these few days could mark the beginning of a golden era in their relationship. al jazeera, london. >> wwhy has china made a bee line for britain in particular? >> i think if they're looking for investment, it's because britain is a very welcoming investment environment. britain does not put the same kind of obstacles in the way of foreign investment as some other
5:19 pm
countries do in terms of security reviews, these kinds of things. britain is very open. there is a good chance for china to be seen investing in western europe, and hopefully get others to learn from britain and the win-win experience that they hope will follow. >> in the u.k. they're talking about a major source of this being made in infrastructure. one can see why when the government doesn't want to have to spend it's own money. they would like to get money from outside. does china need britain as much britain needs china? >> um, in very simple terms, no. because the chinese economy is much larger than the british economy, so there is an imbalance there. but china does have a strong policy of new--of going outward--outward investment policy, and britain is a very useful entree to the wider
5:20 pm
world, especially the developed world. >> what do you make of the new chinese--he's not new, but he's relatively new, and his approach to taking his country more global? >> well, it's sort of an inevitability. china's economy, as we all know, has been developing at enormous speed. that brings with it globalization and china's entry into the world markets. he has concentrated, i think, in himself more on the political side of things. he's very much a political operator, and he has left a lot of economic to his premier. >> saving face is very, very important to the chinese. how will they feel if they are given even mild lectures about human rights? how will they feel about the fact that in the u.k. today chinese steel exports are blamed for the loss of several u.k.
5:21 pm
jobs in the steel industry? >> as far as this visit is concerned, the crucial matter for the chinese is that their president is not embarrassed or put on the spot in public. as far as discussions on human rights are concerned, they know those are going to come. they may make noises say things that are inappropriate, and you shouldn't be lecturing us. they know it's going to come in some form or another. >> it's going to come from an u.k. government, so on and so on. it is it going to make a blind bit of difference? >> on the ground in terms of major changes in china, no. the major changes in china are going to be self-generated. they're not going to come because others wish them to or lecture the chinese government of how they should behave. >> if it's going to be from within rather than pressures from without, do you see china
5:22 pm
changing its policies, the number of executions it carries out, the number of people it jails, without trial, freedom of the press, are these things moving into the 21st century? >> they're moving in other directions. the number of people executed has gone down, but we've seen an increase in repression, in control of the media, control of expression. much more emphasis on party control than was the case in the last few years. >> i'm sure you would enjoy, as we will, watch this develop. we appreciate you coming in for this news hour. thank you. now military personnel, we understand, could soon be patrolling slovenia's border with croatia as refugees move from one country to another. this will go before slovenia's parliament while the queues of refugees continue to funnel through slovenia, this time to
