we have actually consistently refer to the coalition as us back so this isn't a new elements that come into our reporting it was important to talk about the ball and who made that bomb especially because we knew that the specific technology that was used the laser guided technology that was used in this particular strike was technology that president obama had banned the sales of because of human rights concerns and that ban was then overturned by president trump so we knew that this was a really important element and it was one that. it was incredibly cool to get out there to our audience as they worked through how they felt about the war in yemen still it's only one piece albeit an informative one on a story that doesn't get nearly the news coverage that it deserves considering that the u.n. has the cleric yemen the world's worst humanitarian crisis definitely not this war
2:33 pm
and not just the u.k. and u.s. involvement in it has been extremely under reported amnesty international calls that the forgotten war elbagir spoke to me about some of the factors that make reporting on yemen so difficult. i think often what people presume to be a dis interest on the root of part of the media is that we've actually just an inability to get on the ground we are trying in different ways we are learning as we go along as other people in the media landscape how are we going to report on those who it is in place and accomplish that oftentimes people don't really have a great deal of knowledge on but also that is incredibly difficult to get access to in and i think we are which trying our best to figure it out as we go along and it's important to note that access to the warfront and yemen isn't just being limited by the saudi let forces but also the hooty led government that has been

very hostile to the media ok thanks joe. turning now to palestinian journalists and activists and the twin inescapable realities of surveillance and censorship since two thousand and fifteen the authorities in israel have arrested an estimated one thousand palestinians for content they published or shared online israel even has a dedicated cyber crimes policing unit with the cooperation of tech giants like facebook the state has successfully taken down hundreds of palestinian social media accounts and israel's strategy in this area goes well beyond censorship the state has developed algorithms that monitor palestinians in anticipation of them committing a crime silenced and surveilled by israel on one side palestinians are also having to contend with the palestinian authority the p.a. on the west bank and hamas in gaza neither of which is known for tolerating dissent or criticism on why in the west bank in particular the p.a.'s two thousand seven
2:35 pm
hundred cyber crimes law has led to the arrest of numerous palestinians the listening posts nuffin now from the occupied west bank. this post we became the latest palestinian journalist to be charged meant the palestine t.v. correspondent is known for his live broadcasts of life under occupation. the military reportedly took issue with videos he shed of soldiers in a refugee camp near ramallah none of ollie's post-school by. the military prosecutor and the judge referred to the five that i leave the number of follow the hive and the like. and it's not just john f. fifteen year old tomato been with the rested for writing the words forgive me on facebook her alleged crime incitement. and then amounted to maybe it's crime was
2:36 pm
live streaming her daughter's mouth in. from a confrontation with two soldiers in her front yard she was charged with and convicted of in fights with just a few examples and there are hundreds of a charge palestinian say has been used to criminalize criticism of the occupation if your mil if there are who are the general assumption nowadays is that all palestinian social media users are under israeli surveillance system they developed algorithms which monitor social media for certain keywords and later began using a profiling method known as predictive policing anything you say can be seen as incitement everybody. was just imprisoned for saying resist my people resist so the word resistance is forbid as are phrases like i'm against occupation or i will resist occupation it's all considered incitement. but there are very sophisticated methods of online surveillance of these algorithms that have been
2:37 pm
developed the technology that is being used to target everyone anyone exercising their right free speech to a seeing is a violation of the presumption of innocence people are not presumed innocent they are presumed guilty from the start israel does not hesitate one at once to silence its critics while the arabs or jews vote the security of all your month was committed also. neatly multiple gave my. criticism over the way the policy. is from the very early point of view threatening to state security. in two thousand and sixteen israel's minister of justice i allege shook her head boasted that facebook complied with ninety five percent of government requests to remove infighting continence i on facebook and you faced a bill in the works would give the government the power to make that one hundred percent the ministry told the listening post that in find when cases are examined.
2:38 pm
regardless of the nationality or origin of the suspect but there seem to be double standards at play she killed herself once wrote a facebook post that appeared to justify the mass murder of palestinians who give birth to little snakes she was not charged with incitement and in two thousand and seventeen the ngo found that israeli social media uses rates and fights in post against palestinians once every thirty one seconds however prosecutions of israelis friend fights men are extremely rare. censorship and monitoring and not the only way that israel controls palestinians online it also operates social media accounts that target palestinians with propaganda in their own language a practice known as the militarization or infiltration of the palestinian side of a space if. you have pages like the coordinator and israeli general who
2:39 pm
publishes information that mainly targets palestinians and sometimes makes threats like we will enter this area and gaza to occupy it again or pages like it known age we want to live which has a photo of dollars luring people to work with them then there are secret accounts like that of captain. and israeli intelligence officer who writes to people and asks if they need help getting a work permit in other words they played with palestinian emotions as well as their need for money to get them to work for them. after a summer in which israeli snipers killed more than one hundred fifty people in gaza including two journalists and were even caught fellah breaking out some of those killings. the israeli government announced plans for legislation that would outlaw filming is ready soldiers for quote the
2:40 pm
sake of shaming them then there are the more traditional methods of controlling information this month the israeli military arrested six journalists for incitement in a single week at least twenty three john f. the currently imprisoned and seventeen media institutions was shut down by the israeli military last year. but navigating israel's system of control is only part of the chance too often palestinian journalists have come to expect the same kinds of intimidation surveillance and monitoring at the hands of their own government in the occupied west bank the palestinian authority seen by many palestinians as an enabler and enforcer of israel's occupation the p.a. seems to mount a thing or two from the israeli withdrawal bill acceptor ghanem with the offer to be the most commonly deployed charge is incitement one doesn't want to draw a parallel but often those who've experienced israeli presence have also experienced p.a. presence it's as if there's
2:41 pm
a certain type of journalists who must be denied a voice the surveillance of what we write on facebook has become so extensive so sophisticated that i believe we will get to the point where it will include the political and social views of journalists i wish to marry you. taking the lead from countries like the united arab emirates the palestinian authority has adopted a cyber crimes law that has had a chilling effect on free speech in the occupied west bank. it was conceived almost overnight with no public consultation and then passed by presidential decree what i can tell mr lamb was so in order in its first year the law was used in a way that violates human rights and democracy at least thirty palestinian web sites have been banned for either criticizing the palestinian authority or for having alliances with high mass or mohammad dahlan the more has been amended but is still nowhere near perfect the point is there using various laws in
2:42 pm
a selective way to limit opposition voices the lot of the philosophy we are seeing that is used in an abusive manner it is not used to tackle on line crime it's used to restrict opposition and anyone addressing points that are not supported by the past and you rightly so we're still calling for every piece of that law or an amendment of it. would be in line with international standards. then those gathered which is under the control of hamas and where free speech is also heavily restricted security forces there abused harassment interrogation and arbitrary arrests to file an online criticism. but what seems to differentiate the p.s.a. is the frequency with which it was used journalists who are also being sought by the israeli military one such voice islam harter a writer with a large online following known for her criticism of the occupation and the p.a.
2:43 pm
she was arrested by israeli forces in hebron last month not long after have family had been harassed by the p.a. chat about how. in april i spent. the palestinian preventive security forces had detained her husband she told me they asked him why don't you stop your wife from writing on your man and he replied i am a man and agree with what my wife writes and i want to. give in the ever present threat of surveillance and arrest by israel plus the threats coming from their own leadership palestinians are increasingly cautious about what they say online. a study by palestinian n.g.i. mather found that ninety percent of john less practiced self-censorship out of fear for their own safety what people don't know that they are being surveilled all the time whether they are aware of that creates a figure on the part of the population relieved to annoy or leads
2:44 pm
to feeling that their life is thought of them on it at this. time in this house but then what about how all of our journalistic out but it is monitored and analyzed reza we feel as if we somehow become like that type of big brother everyone is what you israel is. fortunately the p.a. is watching me. if there is censorship but palestinian journalists can navigate this ever narrowing the margin. because the moment the journalist goes silent there is nothing left at all with. and finally the eighteenth asian games are well underway in the indonesian capital jakarta a television channel there as c.t.v. produced a video to mark the opening of the games featuring indonesia's president joko widodo beating a traffic jam to get to the stadium on a motorcycle stunts included lame comparisons were reflexive li made online to tom

2:50 pm
time but what the u.s. and the u.k. can no longer continue to support is the ongoing full of civilian deaths and human rights violations which of course is happening on both sides but i think what we're hearing both from secretary madness and from the u.k. as well is that the modest unconditional support for this at least publicly is now changed to modest conditional support for the time the u.s. military drills look set to resume on the korean peninsula the exercises had been suspended since a lot of a lot agreement between president donald trump and north korean leader kim jong un in june. as part of that deal north korea was supposed to end its nuclear weapons development program but the u.s. is frustrated by a lack of progress towards denuclearization in the north. colombia and peru have agreed to set up a joint database of venezuelan migrants then asked what was made after
