fighting and no end to the war in sight analysts say the saudi led coalition is trying something new the saudis are stepping up their game. targeting higher higher level officials and the hoses as well are also are there also to stepping up their game firing more and more ballistic missiles into saudi territory i think the message is clear that they still believe both parties still believe that they're the only solution is a military solution but it's a risky strategy the fighters say they're more determined than ever to continue their fight for control of yemen. this protest was made for our president. and we tell him that we will keep going on your path and we will not drift away his death strengthened us and provided us with resistance god willing we will not drift away. it's a conflict that has already killed thousands of people and caused what the united nations says is the world's worst humanitarian crisis now there are signs of an
escalation from both sides saudi arabia says it intercepted for the missiles fired from yemen targeting the city of g.'s than victoria gate and b. al-jazeera. doctors in gaza saying they are unable to cope with the latest influx of palestinians injured during friday or to protest four people were killed in about nine hundred wounded as israeli soldiers fired on crowds along the fence israel's military struck six more hamas targets in gaza on saturday stephanie deca has mall this is the first time the israeli military has responded with a military force against hamas targets and what it calls a response to the protests at the fence a statement from the army issued on friday night said that this was in response to a mass infiltration attempt at the border fence one of those strikes here in gaza port at two small boats overnight now what we've been seeing here is thousands of
people who have lost their fear certainly this friday the most dramatic yet when you saw a surge of thousands of people heading towards that fence israeli forces opened fire but what people have been telling us is that they have lost their fear we can keep saying that but the situation here has become that desperate everyone you speak to here will tell you it is the worst that it has been since hamas took over the gaza strip there are no jobs the economy is dire people cannot afford to feed their families there's four hours of electricity a day if that medical supplies are in short supply the water is contaminated the water you see here has rule of sewage going into it the list is goes on and on i think this is why we're seeing so many people who don't care whether they're going to be facing life fire at the border fence certainly that's what we saw happen on friday. it happened all of a sudden a surge towards the border fence running in a different direction from where the protests have been focused all day these
really 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 through or to the soldiers opened fire. it went on for quite some time yes i was on balance his race to pick up the wounded civil but the guy suddenly ran in this direction to the fence they threw stones at the soldiers then the israelis opened a heavy fire there are many injuries so there really is a feeling here that people have lost their fear israel has said it will shoot the oh they get right up to the border fence that 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. but it's. with us 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 now there was no obvious. intent to. kill and you like this was the. worst for the youth they are the first generation done to voice what they want is change to be given their rights
and their freedom and you can see that 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 borne 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 decker or jazeera east gaza. russia's foreign minister has accused the u.s. of trying to divide syria into pots sergey lavrov made the comments in moscow while meeting his turkish an iranian counterparts to discuss the war and. yes it talks of being held ahead of the so called a stand up process and ending violence lavrov also took a mess on the western powers before which is why we had building options for peace
some of the other colleagues are trying to destroy the results of our joint constructive if it's not even following the international law like in the recent operation by the u.s. u.k. and france against syria. this meeting was a way for russia turkey and iran co-sponsors of the standard talks to set the scene for the next round of those negotiations which are in a couple of week's time a the fourteenth and fifteenth the three countries here although they have been pushing these negotiations into their ninth rounds now. do have disagreements they have disagreements over the future of president bashar al assad turkey has always thought that he shouldn't be part of syria's future and turkey also disagrees with russia on iran over the recent u.s. u.k. and french airstrikes which were a response to what those three countries said was a chemical weapons attack in duma now turkey supports though that view and thinks
that the russian perspective that this has set back the political process in syria is not necessarily true but the turks do have criticisms of the united states saying that they should give up their ongoing support for the kurds when we do get to the next round of the start of talks in a couple of weeks we're likely to see. a similar situation to previous times which is that the opposition are reluctance to come now the route the opposition has always felt the. talks were essentially a sideshow a distraction from what should be taking place which is the resumption of negotiations in geneva the official u.n. sponsored talks and the opposition has long felt that water star is essentially doing is just hollowing out geneva stripping it of all the main political platforms
political points and essentially giving cover for russia and the syrian government forces on the ground to continue pushing home their military advantage. in one other developments at least eighteen people have reportedly been killed in syria's largest palestinian refugee camp over the past twenty four hours the syrian government is trying to retake several neighborhoods in southern damascus including they are moot refugee camp from myself fight as activists estimate between forty to sixty percent of the campus been destroyed just over a week into the offensive. now the newly appointed u.s. secretary of state might pompei o has arrived in saudi arabia ahead of a three day trip to the region was sworn into his new post on thursday off his predecessor rex tillerson was sacked last month is due to hold talks with the saudi
foreign minister before having dinner out with the crown prince mohammed bin salmond are expected to discuss the iran nuclear deal following trump's threats to polar united states out of the cold next month kristen's louis joins us now from washington and so has wasted no time off his confirmation in heading to the middle east he's going to be in saudi arabia israel and jordan. from what we know so far how does he compare to his predecessor. well my pump aoe is known as a hawk on iran when he was in congress he talked about looking forward to rolling back the j.c. the international agreement signed by six countries and iran to denuclearize the country so this in this way he is much closer to president trump than his predecessor rex tillerson was of course we know that one of the main issues that led to rex tillerson departure from the administration was his sympathy for the
european point of view on the agreement which was to strengthen it as opposed to blowing it up entirely not that tillerson was a huge fan of the deal but after negotiating and talking with the european allies this was the view that he came to espouse and one that president trump did not share but now this may twelfth deadline is fast approaching when the president has to decide whether or not to reimpose sanctions on iran and he's continuing to get a lot of pressure from european allies to stay in the deal or at least do something in such a way that it doesn't completely destroy the progress that has been made so far and leader iran to go back to having a nuclear weapon so amidst all of this pressure of course it's not surprising that pompei would be there to talk to the saudis he's also likely to be talking about the issues in syria we had the president recently saying that he wanted gulf states to do more to help stabilize the situation there and of course that will bring up the crisis among the gulf states which is ongoing as well primarily between the
saudis and qatar so many different issues to discuss how important is it that is going to saudi arabia and israel so soon after being confirmed in the post. yet just hours after he was confirmed the state department announced this trip and said he was the. fastest secretary of state was the fastest trip ever taken by a secretary of state after being sworn in and now we know he had already been to north korea at that point as well while he was awaiting his confirmation but it is telling that this is his first trip he did stop in brussels for a nato meeting first but from there it saudi arabia then israel as you said and jordan he has been to saudi arabia before as the cia director and of course president trump made his first foreign trip to saudi arabia and israel as well so it's in line and in keeping with the administration's priorities for sure thanks
very much from washington kristen salumi so i have for you this hour we speak to wrangle refugees about the horrors they faced at the hands of myanmar as military. and our reporter tries out a new technology making the cinema going experience even more in that city. however i was still got some rather lively showers across parts of the middle east northern parts of the middle east in particular just around the events area clouds swirling away but it should drive and quiet as we go on through the next few days they will still be want to see showers they've towards but root for example could catch a sharp twenty four celsius think it will be dry the wetter weather started to push its way further east was starting to pay to routes as you go through sunday on into
monday the showers become fewer and further between but a bit of cloud there over towards afghanistan kabul the twenty nine celsius for the north tashkent a little cloudy here as well as of around twenty eight degrees some cloud to into the arabian peninsula but generally winding down nicely thirty four celsius here in doha think of cloud is down towards the southern end of the red sea western parts of yemen just around the gulf of aden over the next couple of days you might just catch one or two showers along the coastal fringes dohan the temperature is picking up thirty five celsius dry fine and sunny fun and sunny to across the western cape at present after a recent spell of useful rainfall into cape town dry brush the weather is coming back in cape town eighteen degrees celsius on sunday and a touch warmer for monday. the fact. place on the planet could soon be docs.
with an international team of scientists is determined not to happen without intervention give the big i would say here to have passed now it's a race against time to try to be sure. thank you chris and that's in the national favor. take note on all disease. welcome back quick look at the headlines saudi coalition airstrikes have reportedly killed two hoots the leaders in the yemeni capital sana says thousands of people
turned out for the funeral of a you see commander killed by a strike last week. or his foreign minister is accusing the u.s. of trying to divide up syria sergey lavrov has met his turkish an iranian counterparts in moscow for talks aimed at ending the seventy a civil war. and the new u.s. secretary of state might peo is in saudi arabia as part of his first overseas visit is expected to discuss the iran nuclear deal with the saudi foreign minister and the crown prince mohammed bin selma. well in all the stories we're watching closely armenia's ruling parties announced it will not nominate a candidate for prime minister after massive anti-government protests in the city of gomery demanding an end to what they say is the ruling elites running the country weeks of unrest has led to the resignation of serge sarkozy and his prime minister and an interim leader installed. a walker reports from yerevan. the opposition movement have taken their actions on the road and they have been
visiting different parts of armenia today they were invalid's or the third largest city in the country and it's difficult really to not get a sense that this country is almost entirely bihari nichol passion and his nomination as the candidate for prime minister and when it was announced by him that the republican party the unpopular governing party said it would not be fielding a candidate the crowds erupted and. asked the tens of thousands of people again to gather on tuesday and surround the parliament to make it clear that the popular will of the people is to elect a new prime minister. and now also the possibility that this is a barring an effort by the republican party in which they may choose to abstain not submit
a candidate abstain and therefore nicole passion and would not be able to be selected because at the moment he doesn't have enough seats in parliament he doesn't have a majority but we will have to wait and see over the coming days whether or not members of the republican party are willing to jump ship and join this opposition movement millions of koreans have been reacting to friday's historic meeting of the cheerleaders off that divide and in china while south koreans were able to watch the summit between that president lungi and north korea's kim jong un live on t.v. a message across the board it was more tightly controlled attention is now switching to propose meeting between cannes and the u.s. president james bays reports from so. across south korea people watching the historic summit closely somewhat overwhelmed by the images the first time they'd seen a north korean leader step foot in their country the declaration that was signed
was a declaration of intent nothing is actually changed yet but it could mean a very different political future for the next generation of koreans while south korea had wall to wall coverage of the events in north korea on state controlled 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 an education department which kim your junk comes and younger sister who we saw you know accompany him he also came here to the olympic games he 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 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 could 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 will remain open as they discuss the substance and venue possible kim summit jamesburg zero seoul. well thousands of people are fleeing when you fighting between
myanmar's army and rebel fighters in the northern catchin state the u.n. says more than ten thousand people have been forced from their homes since the start of the year they are now as military said to be pounding rebel positions with air and on telly strikes it can't you know are a christian minority group in myanmar and of so greater autonomy since the one nine hundred sixty s. a u.n. security council delegation is visiting rango refugee camps in bangladesh the team will then travel to me on mars rock kind stay where around seven hundred thousand rangar fled the military crackdown last year charles stratford reports now from a long refugee camp. and has brought his five year old daughter to this field clinic in the coupon the refugee camp in bangladesh moore's face is swollen and she's in pain shamsul of his family have lived in the camp for a year and a half since fleeing violence part of myanmar military against the reinjure in rakhine state and since august last year around seven hundred thousand ruhi jerk
fled the latest myanmar's military crackdown the un human rights chief calls it textbook ethnic cleansing. the military surrounded our house and started shooting from all sides we were terrified so we ran for our lives my daughter was shot but we had to keep running and leave her behind because the shooting was so heavy. the u.n. and aid agencies say around a billion dollars is needed for the hinge are living in what is becoming the largest refugee camp in the world i.o.m. alone is already treating eighty thousand people a month you know they say they are only going to increase as once in approaches we have to have preventative medicine we have to deal with very real dangers of waterborne disease that funding has to be in place now to help protect people on their way through we'll see you know protection of preventable loss of life and that's a very frightening prospect the mainly muslim or hindu or had their citizenship
taken away by what was then the permeates government thirty five years ago rights groups say the rangers have suffered decades of violence and persecution they say the myanmar military and mainly buddhist mobs killed thousands of men women and children committed gang rape and destroyed hundreds of range of villages in recent months but the myanmar government denies the claim it says it was responding to what it calls terrorist attacks by rick injure rebel groups the un security council delegation is due to visit the refugee camps in bangladesh before heading to me for what is expected to be a tightly controlled two day trip. the inability of the united nations security council to take strong action against myanmar is largely because of china's veto power china has big business interests inside myanmar and especially in rakhine state myanmar so far has banned any independent investigation into alleged
atrocities and it seems highly unlikely that this visit by a united nations security council delegation here will lead directly to myanmar being called to account. but pressure is growing on me. the u.s. state department is leading an investigation into claims of extrajudicial killings rape and also by the military a repatriation plan by bangladesh and b.m. are allowing refugees to voluntarily return has so far failed to get off the ground . says he will never return to myanmar lets the government guarantees his family citizenship security and the same rights as other citizens of the country he and his family from. that al jazeera to prolong refugee camp on with their fish now some news from peru where archaeologists say they found evidence of what could be the biggest case of child sacrifice in the world one hundred forty children were
