welcome to the al-jazeera news hour live from my headquarters and me as a peron i'm coming up in the next sixty minutes. at least fifty people are killed and then russian jets bombed rebel held areas and syria. yemen receives its first aid supplies and. blockade. counting is underway and on douras for the presidential election we are live at the capital. protests continuing the government and. trying to. at least fifty people have been killed in just twenty four hours and government and russian air strikes in syria twenty three people were killed in
5:02 am
a government airstrike in the rebel held damascus suburb of east and the area has been on the government's. three hundred fifty thousand people they are in desperate need of aid meanwhile thirty seven people were killed in russia there strikes on a gathering of displaced people and their province a monitoring group says fifteen children were among the victims well solomon has just returned from syria to gaza just across the border in turkey. despite a cease fire agreement between iran turkey and russia the violence in syria does not seem to be coming to an end the airstrikes in the hooter district of damascus targeted three different residential areas according to activists on the ground the number of casualties is on the rise they're saying that they're not able to provide help to all of the victims because they have very limited supplies inside. and a number of hospitals have also been targeted in the last few months they say that
5:03 am
because of this siege and the assad government has not been allowing any medical aid or medical supplies to come in and they're not able to treat patients as they would in a normal situation this is not the only place where strikes have taken place there also russians frights which door in between the resort and this is an area where isis fighters have fled to but it's not just isis fighters who've fled into these areas it's also civilians according to activists on the ground most of the people killed here there are four have been civilians so it's another day of violence that we've seen in syria activists had been called telling us from the ground that in the last ten days or so more than one hundred people have been killed in just the eastern district which is besieged by syrian forces and they say they don't see the violence coming to an end any time soon now and a tablet as a syrian affairs analyst and senior fellow at the washington institute for near
5:04 am
east policy i asked him why we're seeing strikes on a single. it's just designed i think to run down the capital of the. negotiation candles or to speak of the opposition and around them around but it doesn't need getting an agreement any easier and you also mentioned and you know we've seen the russian strikes and that has all entrusting because we've had statements from the russian government along with the u.s. government these joint statements for which. now saying that there is no military solution to the war and syria and yet we're seeing these strikes so it's very difficult to to take those statements seriously i mean what are russia doing here well the russians and iranians in the regime are using military force to shape the diplomatic process and that's. you know a very good tactic in terms of getting results in many many hours they're willing
5:05 am
to escalate or able to do so the problem of the united states and there are unwilling to escalate and that's the reason why russia and the regime are doing this and i'm afraid you know there was wasn't there some hope that these deescalation zones the joint russia taking iran negotiations were having you know at least some success at reducing the violence but if we see that agreement violated at the opposition's expands then what success can these. negotiations have any other than a moment and then the syrian government well war or addresses. military victory diplomatic victory these parallel processes in sochi an astronaut and so on and a lot of fear that that's what's happening and let's wait and see how that comes out of the russians day two tracks you need to track and there are. let's move on to other news now saudi arabia has begun to lift its blockade on yemen after three
5:06 am
weeks medical supplies are flying and the first ship carrying food has now been unloaded but with yemen facing a famine and u.n. aid workers say much more is needed and quickly pizza shop reports. the saudis have promised to lift the blockade of the yemen port of her died four days ago that it was only on sunday that the first desperately needed food supplies were unloaded. now the ship has reached the port of how they entered carrying flour and relief material swaying five thousand five hundred tons this is not enough for the many people needs but we hope this is a good sign to open the port of the data and lift the siege and all your many provinces. unicef says a child dies every ten minutes from preventable diseases that would equate to more than five hundred children dead in those last four days alone five thousand tons of flowers unloaded on saturday but it's just
5:07 am
a trickle too little and far far too late for the most vulnerable today it is fair to say that yemen. is one of the worst places on earth to be a child more than eleven million. yemeni children are to be in acute need of humanitarian assistance that's almost every single yemeni boy and girl unicef says the war in yemen is sadly a war on children close to five thousand children have been killed or seriously injured in the last two and a half years and it welcomes the opening of the airport at santa it allowed us to send in a first humanitarian convoy one point nine million doses of vaccines vaccines that are urgently needed to vaccinate six hundred thousand

5:10 am
that that's an extremely to be sure any judge deal across the country hill is not counted as a humanitarian it's currently nothing. and all very well or. many of those applies to the fourteen as humanitarian assistance but it does not feel to transport that assistance around the country then it's not much so that it's a desperate desperate need. to be good in because it will be exhausted and what is it going to take to get fuel into the country to get the blockade completely lifted i know that your organization have said that the international community must break it silence and use all possible means to lift the blockade completely you know what means does it have at its disposable like now. well we expand our love being really high i mean in all the countries that get the capital in country in country in yemen but also in not capital the in
