support of the palestinians this was the scene and neighboring jordan where hundreds also marched there also solidarity marches in europe including one and germany this one right here chancellor angela merkel is among a host of world leaders opposing the u.s. move very fast at a port of occupied east for a song. on the outskirts of ramallah in the occupied west bank israeli forces are filmed confronting a palestinian man before shooting him three times the last as he sat on the street as they approach the troops appear to see something and move quickly away the man was apparently wearing a suicide bomb belt it's unclear whether it was a genuine device or a fake israeli police say he had just stabbed a member of its border force paramedics took him away. they were further clashes after friday prayers in gaza as palestinians again protested against the u.s. president's recognition of jerusalem as the capital of israel the cross border confrontation bringing more palestinian deaths. earlier tens of thousands had taken
10:03 am
to the strips main north south road to march in protest. the palestinian people are expressing that they reject decision and they are holding on to all of jerusalem as the historical capital of the palestinian people. at the heart of occupied east jerusalem tens of thousands prayed then protested at the al aqsa mosque. through the old city and i had damascus gate exit israeli forces were waiting for them they barricaded off the square preventing a repeat of last friday's protests where hundreds gathered on the steps still some tried to stay here and chant but most were pushed quickly away israeli forces have been trying to prevent a repeat of the protests that took place after friday prayers here in the square outside damascus gate last week they've barricaded off there was a group of largely middle aged and some elderly women you've been seeing for some time there now being forcefully clear. several arrests were made in these limited scuffles again the protests much smaller here than in gaza and the occupied west
10:04 am
bank look at other for this thing with the word it's the have our public or out of the al aqsa mosque compound and here at the mask escape but the occupation has a large force as well as private and undercover units israeli forces are certainly doing all they can to quell this reaction to the trump declaration but the anger is deeply felt and the protests go on terry forsett occupied east jerusalem has ambassador and as a co-founder of the turn a college in a lecture theatre city in california and partly he says palestinian leaders have to look beyond street protests and health strategy to oppose the u.s. decision on jerusalem i do believe palestinian activism and engagement across the globe has made the qualitative shift one of the change in how palestine is seen i don't want to say that the protests by itself will make a transform ation what we need is a political decision well a little more polite zation using all collective civil society agencies bought
10:05 am
inside and outside to make this decision the trump has made something that will bring about some fundamental change to how palestine is more clear that within the broader global this gets me into what the palestinians housing and employment in the p.l.o. i would invite them to join the b.d.s. movement the boycott and their message and sanction movement in a better real weight and robust way and to actually utilize or effect their work across the world to try to put more pressure on israel rather than seeing seeing the p.d.s. as something that they negotiate away with israel or the united states. to south africa now where the ruling party the african national congress is meeting in johannesburg to like its new leader whoever is chosen to succeed jacob zuma will lead the a.n.c. into the next presidential election in two thousand and nineteen the party's deeply divided over who should take over a bitter campaign has threatened to split the movement and causes on a zuma is the south african presidents preferred candidate she's campaigned hard
10:06 am
against racial inequality and for improving prospects for the black majority the other main contender is cyril ramaphosa supporters say his business background makes him the best option to turn around south africa's lagging economy tanya page joins us live now from johannesburg so tanya it's this type of division is something this party is not used to extreme division. exactly and proven very divisive this phrase because there is so much at stake in what is happening at the moment which is causing the delay because we were expecting to be hearing the opening address of president jacob zuma as an emergency meeting by the national executive committee of the. group of about one hundred or so of its top leaders they are currently meeting to discuss the outcomes of some court rulings three court rulings issued on friday at various locations around the
10:07 am
country which would seem to have had a negative impact on the candidature. zuma some of the results from some of the branches the grass roots levels of a.n.c. members where they choose their candidates were they choose their delegates some of the outcomes of those branch meetings being nullified by south africa's court so the any see currently meeting to discuss how that will affect the outcome of this presidential race which is expected to be tight on the first of all that is that we are now experiencing a delay. unprecedented infighting has marred the build up to this highly anticipated conference african national congress members have taken their disputes about which presidential candidate their delegates should vote for into the courts across the country the party's never seemed more divided that the and cs secretary general says it will emerge stronger.
10:08 am
referred to. the unit is not the unit. is the unit of the board of. jacob zuma is presidency has been divisive and mobbed by corruption allegations that have threatened to drag him into court the a.n.c. lost political control of three major cities during the zuma controversy. many south africans see this contest as a battle for the heart of the a.n.c. will the party continue in the mold of president jacob zuma by electing his preferred candidate or will it make a break with the past and choose a rival. his favorite candidate in courses that mean it may be able to protect him from legal action involving corruption allegations the other front runner is current d.p.t. president ceramic poser regardless of who comes out on top is likely to be replaced
10:09 am
as president before the general election in two thousand and nineteen. the president will have to go earlier next year my sense is that the first quarter of next year he will have to goal. the question is how will he goal if. there might throw a big party for the president to go if. the president of the union building either way the president is going to have to call the polls my dispensation is being forged now the question is how different will it be from his most college child maybe protests. it isn't just the top job that's up for grabs so are dozens of positions in the n c's hierarchy within the next few days that could be either a major realignment in the oldest liberation movement on the african continent or more of the same. now once president zuma has officially opened this
10:10 am
elective conference the first thing that happens is the approval or refusal of the delegates credentials there are just over five thousand of them and as i said earlier they have been mandated by the grass roots and see gatherings they call branches here to come to this conference now if it is tight it's possible some of the results will be disputed if some of the members who are refused the opportunity to vote here because of ongoing legal action they could be grounds for disputes there it's quite clear given the amount of legal action taken in the courts that many a.n.c. leaders have lost face in their own party's internal problem solving processes and that also heightens or highlights rather just how much is at stake not only the leadership of the a.n.c. but this person is very most likely to go on to be the next president of south africa at the two thousand and nineteen general election but also of course for the
10:11 am
wider community for all south africans this country has a massive problem with a very high stubbornly high unemployment rate which the a.n.c. has failed to bring down the economy is sluggish so all south africans will be looking for a leader who will be able to get the economy back on track ok. honey thank you. korea has defended its ballistic missile program at the united nations security council public session was called after the launch last month of a missile which north korean leaders say can strike anywhere and the united states at the u.n. a public meeting the sheriff failed to come up with any new measures to curb north korea's weapons program mike hanna reports from new york the red scarf a reflection of the chilly weather outside and little warmth displayed in the chain the towards north korea was representative listened to condemnation from speaker after speaker with what appeared to be studied. the situation on the korean
10:12 am
peninsula is the most them's and dangerous peace and security issue in the world today publicly at least the council has been united in imposing an extensive series of sanctions but the u.s. secretary of state questions the commitment of russia and china continuing to allow north korean laborers to toil in slave like conditions inside russia in exchange for wages used to fund to clear weapons programs calls into questions russia's dedication as a partner for peace. similarly as chinese crude all flows to north korean refineries the united states questions china's commitment to solving an issue that has serious implications for the security of its own citizens these charges rejected by china and russia which insisted that the ongoing joint military exercises by the u.s. and south korea made any dialogue all but impossible to me is that you should lean so is that only two months of quiet by north korea were answered by washington with
10:13 am
unprecedented military exercises and a listing on a tear a funding list that leads us to question the sincerity of statements that there is a preference for a peaceful solution to the crisis will go to schools of dual use and with all eyes on him the north korean representative the period nervous his hands shaking but also unapologetic arguing that his country has a sovereign right to protect itself against what he called us aggression our position of the nuclear therefore and rewards of individuals the third with defense even meijers up with the present. and the right of resistance and development of from the us the meeting ended with agreement on the desirability of dialogue but division as to how to achieve it the u.s. adamant that there has to be a unilateral freeze on nuclear testing by north korea before any talks can be possible. mike hanna al jazeera united nations. still ahead on al-jazeera
