5:02 pm
a moment we'll speak with her doctor hamid who is in gaza but first over to stephanie docker joining us from west jerusalem and the reaction to the woman's resignation stephanie what more he had to say in that press conference. well he highlighted two main issues what he couldn't stomach in his words one of those was the fifteen million dollars of cash that was hand carried into gaza by the qatari envoy that money is to pay civil servants in gaza but he said that you couldn't say diem exactly where that money is going once across the border he didn't agree with that and of course he didn't we with the cease fire he said the fact that almost five hundred rockets that were fired out of gaza into israel within the space of twenty four hours is something that he could not look the residents of those border communities in the eye domestic politics is also a play here during people will tell you that this was perhaps his golden opportunity for a positioning himself in
5:03 pm
a stronger way for the upcoming elections but let's take a listen to how exactly he phrased that resignation come on nor do. i wish to inform you that i'm going to resign my function as the minister of defense of israel why now from what happened yesterday the ceasefire yesterday together with all of the arrangements against hamas is giving in to tara there's no other reason no other reason but giving in to tara and on the issue of domestic politics stephanie what does this mean for the governing coalition and that's a whole. well the government can and will continue to function as you mentioned barry has a very slim majority now just one seat in the knesset in the israeli parliament most people analysts are saying that it is pretty certain that elections will be brought forward just speaking to one political analyst who is saying that netanyahu
5:04 pm
will try to kill lieberman's momentum so you know we would expect elections right away but perhaps in the next coming months but this is also a move by abu dora lieberman positioning himself as an opponent to benjamin netanyahu in the upcoming elections a more right wing candidate placing the blame of of gaza's failures let's say on netanyahu but at same time there is also a lot of praise in a way for the prime minister taking a difficult decision particularly if you look at the number of rockets fired out and what even netanyahu today said was a difficult decision they're not always easy but for the good of the people and of course we know there's been so many negotiations going on behind the scenes to try and alleviate let's say the humanitarian situation in gaza there's a realisation from the military from the intelligence services and even the political establishment most of them that say that without conflict would not and in any benefit to either side all right stephanie decker thank you will get the
5:05 pm
point of view from gaza that is where who does joining us from and and hamas officials were quick to come out and call this a victory of a door lieberman's a resignation. yeah a political victory actually and that statement from hamas came while liberman was still speaking in the other side of the border in a statement hamas also said that it somehow it was and that liberman's resignation was an also an acknowledgment of defeat by israel ironically yesterday a. senior official here had tweeted that actually been jamin it and should fire a live in man because he put the blame on all what happened over the past few days and that a very serious escalation between the two sides on avigdor lieberman we all we also
5:06 pm
heard similar statements from the second strongest faction here in gaza this make jihad and others also have also did that now earlier i'm here in the street who actually. lives in earlier just about half an hour ago there was like a small celebration in front of his house celebrating what the masses putting forward to people as a military victory over israel and also celebrating the fact that every door neighbor man paid the price for that hamas victory and now that the cease fire is in place at least for now how is it holding in gaza. what it is holding it's been very calm except that there was one fisherman. his rooms he was in north i think he got very close to israeli territorial waters so that happened but by and large the ceasefire is holding i was talking to some
5:07 pm
people here today said that yesterday there was no one on the streets of gaza people with very scared so it is that release people trying to get back to their normal lives but there is always that worry in the back of their minds is always a certain degree of skepticism you know we're talking about a truce now based on the two thousand and fourteen agreement but people also say we've been hearing about the long term cease fire they just worried that that has been so difficult to bring about working out all these details worried that this latest round of escalation might make that even further away all right without them having it thank you. barack as a former advisor to the former israeli president shimon peres and the speechwriter for the former prime minister ariel sharon he says the resignation caught many people off guard today the results were announced at a number of municipal elections including the one in jerusalem where he had
5:08 pm
a candidate that he was supporting that won so it makes sense that it didn't happen up until now because it would have affected the election but he certainly caught everyone off guard by coming out and saying he's resigning from the government but i think it may be a smart political move for him and the prime minister now has to see how as a prime minister going to maneuver because the prime minister still has the upper hand here for lieberman it certainly was good to distance himself now from the prime minister because you know he was talking very very tough before he became defense minister and people haven't seen him be really tough necessarily in the defense ministry because a lot of what the defense minister has to do is also be restraint and showing restraint to his voting base is not so good on the road is a spokeswoman for the palestinian task force on public diplomacy she says lieberman's resignation coming after the cease fire announcement is not lost on the people of gaza. well i think the entire palestinian public will not lose any sleep
5:09 pm
over the fact that lieberman will not be part of this government and the fact that he's resignation is motivated by the fact that he's objecting to not shedding enough palestinian blood having said that i think if you look at it take a closer look at the palestinian public opinion it is not lost on any sector of palestinian society that this was directly related to the last forty eight hours or so in gaza and that gaza is a player in internal israeli politics no. well britain's prime minister is trying to win approval for bracks a draft deal with the e.u. at a special cabinet meeting negotiators from britain and the european union came to an agreement on tuesday several of tourism aides cabinet ministers are reported to have concerns about the draft clock on the other e.u. countries will also have to apra approve the proposal lawrence lee is joining us
5:10 pm
from london so can may then get this draft plan through the cabinets and if she does is that the end of that's. well she she she's got a chance i think i mean certainly there are a lot of skeptics inside the cabinet ministers who are deeply unhappy and they're being. hardliners to show some backbone and another resign or say they're not prepared to accept it i think i think stories amaze argument and if you're trying to be benevolent is to try to find a form of brick seats that can try and bring the country together effectively she said of her own party conference a few weeks ago that she didn't like the way that politics in this country have become very shouty with people arguing loudly with each other and the country being so split and i suppose her arguments is that by leaving mostly then britain can take control of things like immigration and its own laws and stop giving money to the european union which she assumes would pacify the hard rex's but by staying
5:11 pm
within the sort of all bits of the european union on things to do with custom in the movements of goods keeping irish bordereau them that might pacify some people who want to remain either close to the european union or retain some sort of trade relationship that stops all economic damage in the end but she seems of a compass actually is the opposites we both remain as and leave us saying the deal actually is hopeless for both of them and the amounts of luck that she got a prime minister's questions for example demonstrates just how difficult it's going to be not just to get through cabinet but more importantly through through a parliamentary vote in a few weeks time here's how she tried to justify her actions in parliament to questions at lunchtime today. i'm confident that this takes a significant closer to live to delivering on what the british people voted for and . we will take back control of our borders on the wars and our money leave the common fisheries policy and the common agricultural policy while protecting job
5:12 pm
security and the integrity of our united kingdom mr speaker i will come back to the house to update it on the outcome. so the important words in that statement i thought were significantly closer. it isn't it isn't a full blown bricks it's it it's a sort of fudge if you like critics really is saying well hang on you spent two years saying no deal with the european union is better than a bad deal now you're saying about deals better than no deal and so they are trying to take it all apart but one reading of what the hard line. might do is actually not take a decision cabinets and say it's up to parliament to decide and abrogate responsibility and that parliament do it for them on the assumption that what it does comes parliament voted down anyway so it looks like a pretty uphill struggle for tourism all right lawrence and thank you. known as general forrest's. is wanted by both the u.n.
