lot of saudi arabia says intercepted for missiles fired from yemen targeting the city that's hours after a saudi led coalition air strike reportedly killed two leaders and dozens of fighters in yemen's capital city state television says. high level meeting was targeted at the who these interior ministry in santa earlier this month the rebel second in command sala his semite was killed in a saudi led air strike a large crowds have gathered in seven square to pay tribute to sam i'd heard the leaders call for a one million man march in the capital to commemorate his death samad is the most senior who the official to be killed by the saudi led coalition in yemen's three year war correspondent has somehow but has reported extensively from yemen he joins me now on the set to talk more about this welcome hashim so what should we read then into the timing of these strikes why now has if you look now of these been
12:03 pm
almost two years more than three years is the start of the started its coalition campaign against the houthi it hasn't achieved major. victories on the ground the hokies took control of a huge stretch of land. totoo that stretches from solder all the way to thais and now they're aiming for the top brass of the military and the political establishment of the whole thing is to say that we are able to intercept communication we know where they are and we can target them is this something which is likely to make any impact on the ground here remains to be seen because the hope is to remain very powerful they have fired they said a while ago that they have fired eight ballistic missiles into saudi arabia they say that they will continue their fight so it remains to be seen whether these targeted killings of syria members of the who the movement are going to undermine the the rebellion and we're seeing the pictures of the huge crowds there. to pay their respects to. sam and how how important was he to that we didn't meet he was
12:04 pm
one of the. top political leaders of the movement that has been trying over the last three years to reach out to different political parties to build general consensus in yemen and put an end to the political divide in the country. his death is a definitely a serious blow to the movement has been now replaced by mehdi elma shelties been a personal assistant of the militant who the leader of the movement he's seen more of a. of a radical within the border and it's also the chances for political dialogue in the near future within the different political rival groups in yemen are going to be last with the. shop but then we start talking about many political leaders within the movement top military commanders like a wild high king was still operating in different parts of the countries and for the whole thing as they say this is basically going to be
12:05 pm
a turning point they would like to as you can see the footage that we seeing now from the capital sanaa it's quite a message from the who do like to tell the international community the remain the most popular movement in yemen yeah that's that gets to my next question actually because i mean obviously you know information is hard information is hard to come by but if you go just by these pictures it does seem that after three years of this these are very much in control at least in the capital definitely and you know the control to control it has to control the data and. all the way towards thais if they do move very powerful they have also the have the backing of the former top military commanders who are working under former president abdullah saleh was killed by. these also the strikes led by the saudi led coalition have backfired in a way or another because we've seen the growing rise in the growing number of civilians who have been killed over the last three years the united nations put the number of more than ten thousand civilians killed in the conflict so this has
12:06 pm
backfired raising the ante is some of the sentiment among particularly the northern part of the country that basically what they did they rallied behind the houthi it's actually one better thanks very much. now pressure is growing on garza's hospitals after four palestinians were killed and almost nine hundred others injured as they marched up to israel's border fence on friday israel's facing more international criticism for its use of live fire on demonstrators but says it is protecting its border the number of injured is stretching hospitals in gaza to breaking point. more slowly over to the how medical resources have hit rock bottom the health authorities must provide more medical supplies for us to continue to treat patients and. i was not fully or properly treated because of the lack of medicine and medical facilities in another hospital then i got transferred to this rehabilitation hospital and i ran into the same problems of friday's protests was
12:07 pm
the closest palestinian demonstrators came to israel's border fence stephanie decker was there. it happened all of a sudden a surge towards the border fence running in a different direction from where the protests had been focused all day the israeli soldiers had to reposition themselves the army issued a statement saying there was an attempt to infiltrate the border that they acted within the rules of engagement to thwart it but the soldiers opened fire it went on for quite some time yet. and balances raced to pick up the wounded. the guy suddenly ran in this direction to the fence they threw stones at the soldiers then the israelis opened heavy fire there are many injuries. there really is a feeling here that people have lost their fear israel has said it will shoot the
12:08 pm
moment they get right up to the border fence and the people here will tell you they have absolutely nothing left to lose. earlier in the day a small victory for these young boys israeli forces had warned the protestors over a speakerphone in arabic to move back from the fence. when they didn't. to deal with the tear gas homemade gas masks and now being sold it could demo on how to use them these young men part of a generation who grew up under the blockade there are no jobs no opportunities they are stuck here as. we get power from a peaceful protest. and. we have rights and we need our freedom. these three seem to discuss tactics maybe hoping for a brief moment of pride against one of the best equipped armies in the world. there was no obvious.
12:09 pm
like. for the youth they are the first nation. to what they want is change to be given their rights and their freedom. despite the dangers of getting not put to the front no one is stopping. this friday has been described by many here as the most dramatic yet because the protesters came right up to israel spends israel's intelligence agency and the army have warned the israeli government that gaza could explode if the current restrictions continue they may be right people here say they've lost their fear that life in gaza has become unbearable that they have nothing left to lose. stephanie joins us live now from guards in the port city so stephanie just
12:10 pm
bring us up to day what happened last night. well in response to those protests and that link was explicitly made by the israeli army they shoot a statement two strikes will six actually six missiles two of those hit two small boats exactly in this port a little further back from where we are has those has them those boats we looked at them this morning very little damage really. there's a bit of block but they're still intact and another strike hit an empty kosong training camp that is the military wing of hamas in central gaza so the the message really i think from israel putting pressure on hamas to reign in those protests the exact wording in a statement that was issued late last night from the army saying that these strikes were in response to what they call terror activity and a mass infiltration attempt earlier at the border there is a different kind of pressure on israel now has because you are seeing thousands of unarmed protesters are really seem to have lost their fear going right up to that
12:11 pm
border fence and in terms of how israel is responding to. seeing a change in tactics from them. but i think it's very difficult for them to deal with this because when israel talks about conflict with gaza it always holds hamas responsible for what happens here you haven't had a single rocket fired out of the strip since these protests began five weeks ago at these protests you don't see any members but it explains city of how masses military wing most of the people you speak to their families their kids yes there's a lot of young men of course unemployment here is massively high sixty percent there really are no opportunities for these men some of them we spoke to had actually been shot last week when they got close to the fence and we also why are you here again you're in pain and they said well we have we have nothing left to do there's a real sense of of of i think desperation here you know we've had international
12:12 pm
organizations warning about the dire conditions in gaza what these people are suffering i've been covering. zefi years and it's never been as bad as it is now when you speak to people whether random as we speak on the street friends of ours colleagues of ours everyone will talk to you about the massive challenges they're facing right now whether it is the economic situation money people can't afford to feed their families salaries have been cut also coming from the palestinian authority in the west bank that people here don't no longer believe in how mass they no longer believe in the palestinian authority which which runs which is in the west bank they don't believe in international community they don't believe in the arab world because things have become so desperate here and i think this is what we're seeing at the border having these young people lose their fear because they know the risks israel does shoot but i think also interestingly yesterday what we saw at the border some people will tell you israel could have perhaps caused even more casualties than they did not think that perhaps an indication also that international pressure on their reactions to these peaceful protests are changing
12:13 pm
stephanie deck ally first there in gaza thank you now talks on syria are underway between the foreign ministers of russia iran and turkey the three countries have been pushing for a political solution through the a stop on a process that began last year but they remain divided over the u.s. led strikes in syria were in retaliation for they suspected chemical attack on. a semi head on al jazeera when we come back bride diplomacy a message of reassurance on a long running border dispute we'll have analysis on the indian prime minister's trip to china. mysteries on earth in peru could this be the world's largest mass children's great.

12:15 pm
some very thick cloud and some heavy rain making its way towards new zealand over the next day or two really is a bit of a washout this weekend just thirteen celsius in christchurch on sunday heavy downpours for the north island to gradually moving in for the early part of next week. on counting the cost why iran's nuclear deal and all those factors are at play in a new game of oil it could mean steeper prices at the pump. and into. what would a pool in relations mean for their economy. counting the cost.
12:16 pm
again you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour a large crowds have been gathering in yemen's capital sana'a to pay tribute to the hooty leader salah assam and was killed in a saudi led air strike last week saudi media says another airstrike on friday killed two more with the leaders and dozens of fighters a high level meeting santa. pressure is growing on garza's hospitals after four palestinians were killed and nearly nine hundred others injured when they marched up to israel's border fence on friday it's the closest they have come in five weeks of protests. talks on a political solution for syria are underway between the foreign ministers of russia iran and turkey but they remain divided over the u.s.

12:18 pm
media a more edited version was presented people here of not yet been told of the possibility of the next meeting being between their leader and president trump experts say one of the people closest to kim is likely to be involved in changing the official narrative. well for north korea the all of the media are controlled by the propaganda and agitation department which kim your junk condemned and younger sister who we saw you know company him she also came here to the olympic games she works in that department which indicates a very very high priority for the north korean regime joining the summit president moon j. in and supreme leader kim jong un met alone face to face for over thirty minutes trump is also said to favor a meeting one on one with no eggs a former senior official who worked on north korea both at the white house and
12:19 pm
later at the u.n. has this advice for the u.s. president a stablish in a good personal relationship that would then lay the groundwork for real detailed talks among experts i think is the best way to go and this can be a very highly successful meeting if done the right way. after the very high profile summit the next stage of the diplomatic process will take place well away from the spotlight the lines of communication between pyongyang seoul and washington were remain open as they discuss the substance and venue of a possible trump kim summit james zira seoul. china and india say they will improve military context to avoid any future border disputes india's prime minister narendra modi is in china for talks with president xi jinping a recent military standoff on a stretch of the border had lasted for months india also raised the issue of

12:21 pm
added extra support for him it is very important to stipulate the border to stipulate that relations with china and to tell the domestic public that listen i have mine is to bring the message of bikes were on fire and this is not really going haywire support for me some what he's going to do this was a very important summit done he seems to come out now off with flying colors to do things about you for talking to all of them are doing things that come up with it clearly one is the strategic guidance of the human to get to meet it is likely to sign out that. should not take things into their own hands it also then that in order of things that happened between india and china are on the border i'm not necessarily sanctioned by the two political leadership so this is something to my mind very very important question viewed by the two leaders of the of the details or whatever they have discussed have not come out yet but one thing that
12:22 pm
against times out the adjoint of project that they are proposing to do you know i've gone it's not this my pockets done but clearly it does show us that there is that i'm on the proper or smile and i'm standing between mr c. and mr morsi and is it clear that there is an important to economic relationship that is at stake here that it isn't that it isn't just about the border dispute it . absolutely you're talking about an economic relationship that these words eighty six billion dollars eighty five billion dollars although it is mostly signed as they were this is a relationship that india doesn't work on dammit this is an election that china does not want i mean it's all want to borrow the military on their misunderstandings there is an economic relationship that i support the state in china is india's biggest trading partner. in goods i'm sad i use the next door neighbor but that you can avoid so in a sense the course will be given that you need is also
