report indicates was not an isolated incident but part of a widespread campaign. now the israeli army has raided areas in the occupied west bank after an israeli soldier was killed the military says a palestinian stab the soldier took his weapon and fired at civilians nearby he then fled the scene it happened outside the illegal israeli aerial settlement south of nablus how a force that has more from west jerusalem. the israeli military has set out the sequence of events that it says took place in the occupied west bank on sunday morning it says at around nine forty five at the ariel interchange southwest of the city of nablus and a palestinian man approached a soldier stabbed that soldier and took his weapon before firing on nearby vehicles that soldier one thousand years old the israeli army says was killed in that attack israeli civilian in one of those vehicles was also shot and seriously wounded israeli media saying he was he is a forty seven year old man
a resident of one of the illegal israeli settlements in the occupied west bank another vehicle which was abandoned was then apparently taken by this individual he drove it southwest and fired on a bus stop where another israeli soldier was wounded that vehicle then discovered in or near the city the village of burkean palestinian village of booking further southwest that became the center of a pretty major israeli military operation as houses were searched and the focus of this search was undertaken there were reports in the palestinian media as well that there was an exchange of gunfire at one stage there this military operation extended well beyond that village though checkpoints were set up illegal settlements were closed down for some time as were some other palestinian villages the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has said that the perpetrator or perpetrators of this attack will be captured in the justice will be brought to them
there have been celebration events that have taken place in gaza where hamas and islamic jihad have both welcomed the news of this attack and they're also be tensions that erupted elsewhere in the occupied west bank with settlers stoning palestinian vehicles and homes currently this major military operation is still ongoing. israel's supreme court has banned the leader of a far right party from running in next month's election and. the jewish power party incited racism against palestinians a decision overturns a ruling by israel's election committee called also reinstated israeli palestinian parties which had been disqualified. in the o.p.'s transport minister says there are clear similarities between last weekend's ethiopian airlines plane crash and the lion air disaster in the news during october both involved boeing seven three
seven max eight aircraft a mass funeral service has been held for some of the victims of last sunday's crash . thousands of mourners in ethiopia. seventeen empty caskets draped in the national flag relatives of the hundred fifty seven passengers and crew died of been given bags of earth from the crash site instead of remains because the d.n.a. identification process could take up to six months. grieving families of some of the one hundred fifty seven victims of ethiopian airlines flight three hundred to. mourn the loss of their loved ones. arriving at this field. lies through not around brings it home to. their line officials say they haven't found even a single body intact just body parts which would make the added process took awhile
. ethiopian airlines didn't give us anything they told us to wait until thursday we waited in thursday came they are now saying they couldn't find anything i wish they told us that they found nothing in the first place this is major grief heavy we came empty handed and we're going back empty handed. the boeing seven three seven eight went down at eight forty four sunday show. they have to take off from the capital addis ababa and drew tonight will be in neighboring kenya passengers from more than thirty countries were on board this is a time of crisis in ethiopia the airline is a symbol of national pride and if europeans have thrown their full support behind it to paralyze small talk from since i was a small boy it was brilliant africa together and. this was a win win for seventy five years laughter and evidence that the cross has done little to scare people away from the airline can be seen of the capitol smushed
looming hotels there teeming with passengers in transit that's a didn't happen here it's like india that's in that happens with on our roads you know s.p.c.s. not just enough to cut and globally we have those records of us interrupting so as a layer of travel our end user if you've been in l.a. that has not affected my view or perspective. it european airlines has expanded its fleet to one hundred eleven planes it now flies to one hundred six international and twenty three domestic distillations beyond its almost professionals the airline also for the nine percent stake in malawi lines and forty five percent stake in zambia airways what ethiopian is doing is arbitrary corporate governance they're basically coming in to a failed business which is not failed because there was not demand there's demand that passengers want to fly out of these countries so you've got the demand they're
willing to pay but the issue has been the mismanagement of those airlines in countries to actually it's buying up cheap assets with strong demand and making it work i think is a great strategy. back of the crash site walk us continue the search for debris and remain so for those who perished in the crush these so windswept filled one continued to be an international crime scene for a long time to come how it all just zita addis ababa ethiopia. well first of the political prisoners pardoned by the democratic republic of congo's new president has been released from jail phoenix the secure the promised about seven hundred prisoners most of whom were jailed under the previous regime would be freed during his first one hundred days in office got held up as a day on reports was frank de angelis spent two and a half years in kinshasa central prison was he is one of three prominent opposition
