money but i didn't realize about many. it is bear market so i. could go on a very difficult scenario and also difficult to get independent verification on but in the wider impact of what's going on in the country the war that is now into its what third year what sort of impact to do attacks like this have on your society when it's not just buses or fish markets it's funeral gatherings it's wedding parties that are innocently targeted. yemenis are wondering how this is going to stop what is what will the reaction be to this recent attack. i think the attack like this is actually strengthen the position of the movement because i believe that many people in yemen when they see the. videos of those children
7:33 pm
a lot of killed or injured they will actually join the whole of the movement from the beginning of the war that this war has not impacted the whole thing we've seen that it's didn't increase in their myside and is reaching the but if the saudi arabia now they have these drones that could target even abu dhabi so this war is only actually damaging civilians and killing civilians and as you mentioned about the targeting view that i was just one hour and a half ago to one hour they have so you have targeted a funeral procession inside of killing five civilians and then other seven civilians so i don't know what the point of that would be to target civilians on the other hand they should be fighting the houthi in the border that they should actually focus the air strike in a state of targeting civilians area to focus that it just like. we did the whole
7:34 pm
the fight is what we see what's reaction we get from both sides as the day progresses for them to support hearty thanks for joining us. from across the world i'm in the region how most officials in gaza say storing carbon to israel they were to escape the conflict any further israel has talked to both one hundred forty science and intense strikes on that to see each gaza strip three palestinians are being killed including a pregnant woman and her eighteen month old daughter israel says the military action came after rockets were fired from gaza on wednesday night the united nations says it's deeply alarmed by the violence warning it could lead to war. well to keep into the night intense bombardments the flash of outgoing rockets from gaza. israel's iron dome air defense system knocked out several of the missiles but the majority got through and in response came the blasts and claims from israeli
7:35 pm
air strikes. this is how it started here a rocket unlike most of them finding its targets people fleeing in all directions of the panic towns right across southern israel under attack. the response was fast as strikes right across the gaza strip up to twenty mostly bases of the al qassam brigade the military wing of hamas. it released a statement saying in retaliation against the israeli aggression the resistance is continuing to fire rockets at israeli towns. the casualties may not have been a higher number but they included a mother and baby in a house hit in daryl barracks. as emergency services on both sides of garza's walls responded to the bare arj of incoming and outgoing fire egyptian mediators were engaged in trying to pursue both sides to call
7:36 pm
a truce much rest now on the real intentions of israel and hamas to warn or both really intend to break down the cease fire talks and nicholai madden of the un special envoy has been here before not so serious but he mediated and succeeded in stopping the fighting a month ago his words our collective efforts have prevented an explosion until now we will work hard to ensure garza's steps back from the brink. can not in of and egyptian mediators bring gaza back from the brink again people are in fear tonight that he may not succeed. a former russian double agent and as daughter are the center of a growing tension between the u.s. and russia washington is imposing sanctions on moscow for an attack on cigarettes triple and his daughter in britain the state department accuses rusher of using the
7:37 pm
nerve agent novacek to poison them in the city of seoul sprit russia has called the allegations far fetch more challenges following events for us in moscow they're saying a lot more at the kremlin are they not rory. yeah you get the impression the kremlin is pretty mad about this the spokesperson dmitri peskov has said this is categorically unacceptable that it's illegal under international law or the kremlin has again stress that it had nothing to do with the script poisoning and says that these sanctions the new ones are inconsistent with the constructive atmosphere that the kremlin felt that it got from donald trump but the helsinki summit some weeks ago now though they're saying that washington is an unpredictable actor on the international stage but that it's too soon for the moment's talk about russian council measures counter sanctions because
7:38 pm
they need to find out more about what these actual u.s. sanctions involve but they're hoping that at some point they can return to constructive relations with washington d. c. now the ruble has taken a battering because this is fallen to its lowest level in some twenty months there is also a cost being borne by some russian companies who are having their share prices hit russian government bonds as well but the kremlin insists that the financial system has weathered previous sanctions storms and therefore they can probably do so again . and we sort of tit for tat diplomatic expulsions earlier. i mean if we're looking at such as what we sort of expect. well i mean we're looking at several more packages coming down the road i mean we've got this script sanctions arrangements which basically kicks into
7:39 pm
action on august the twenty second and the first draft is to do with exports of things material that the u.s. considers to be of national security importance but if the united states does not get the assurance that it's demanding from moscow that it will not use chemical weapons again then they'll be a new round of sanctions kicking in in ninety days time and that could as as the americans are saying be more draconian it could say blocks the national carrier russia aeroflot from using american airports there could be. hits on various other parts of the the russian. energy sector of and things like that but there is a further round of sanctions which is also being talked about in congress is being drafted at the moment which is separate to the whole script thing this is more to
7:40 pm
do with the united states protecting itself against were abuses russian interference in elections and so on and that could well become codify in law and again hit things like the russian energy sector like state banks if this does come through if this does get passed then it basically means that we're going to see sanctions in place for years to come if not decades and it proves to moscow that donald trump whatever may he may have said to write him a putin is a lonely figure in washington d.c. and that there's a large and powerful establishment there that does not like what trump is doing does not like what russia has done and is trying to. ring friends itself safeguard itself from either of these two actors which i believe might not have america's best interests at heart well thanks for the update rory. months of national debate
