accumulating over the next couple days between about 2 and $300.00 millimeters of rain but the system itself winds in excess of 120 kilometers an hour so we're also expecting some so insurgents some very rough seas with waves of about 7 and a half meters elsewhere and india is fine and dry temperatures not too bad in new delhi at 26 and rain showers further into the south. deal with poverty unless you deal with the gap you disappear i disagree with that a lot this is going to be leaving the public become a treat for the. these people are well trained. very worthy to. join me in the hot sun as i put the questions to my special guests and challenge them to some straight talk the political debate.

5:17 pm
territory with more than a dozen bushfires close in a severe risk there are reports of people being trapped in their homes. now hundreds of palestinians have gathered along the gaza israel border fence for the weekly friday protests the so-called great much of a return rallies began last march that's going to our correspondent rob matheson he's joining us live from gaza what's happening there rob. as you can probably see behind me crowds are beginning to make their way away from these protests they've been here for about an hour and we understand that according to the ministry of health these 10 people have been injured at 5 protest sites along the separation wall we don't yet know the nature of those injuries here we have seen several ambulances with their lights and alarms going backwards and forwards we've also seen a certain amount of. smoke being fired in tear gas being fired but this is not nearly as intense as previous protests have been now that's a little bit of
5:18 pm
a surprise because only a week ago gaza and israel were firing rockets at each other across this separation fence just to the south of where i am in a 27 year old palestinian man died in that we would have expected the crowds here to be much bigger but it's important to note that a few hours after that incident israel released a statement saying that it blamed the leader of a single islamic jihad group in gaza for those gaza rockets not hamas and not any other political faction so it was very specific about where he felt the blame laid few days later for spill onto a weapons state delegation went from hamas went to cairo egypt is one of the key negotiators of this very fragile cease fire that exists between gaza and israel and the understanding is that the delegation was anxious to impress on the egyptians that they stood by and were committed to this cease fire if you take those both
5:19 pm
those incidents together essentially you get a sense that both sides are trying to tamp down on any possible rise in tension and one of the reasons for that could be political of course israel is in the process of trying to form a government at the moment and palestinians are about to take part in the elections for the 1st time since 2006 on the understanding here in gaza is that hamas the controlling grew. here in gaza wants to be seen to be in charge of security in this area particularly in the run up to those elections so as i say it's interesting that the crowds here today have been significantly smaller than there have been in the past rob thank you for that for now that is rob matheson live in gaza thank you it's now ukraine's army and russia back separatists are said to withdraw more troops from the front line in eastern ukraine on saturday the planned exit as part of a series of measures aimed at ending a conflict that's killed more than 13000 people in the last 5 years meanwhile the
5:20 pm
international court of justice a search of all the case filed by ukraine against moscow let's go to our correspondent step vasant she's joining us live from moscow and as we wait for that i.c.j. ruling step what would it mean for both ukraine and russia. yes the international court of justice is in session right now reading this important ruling in a case was filed 2 years ago by ukraine basically it wants to take russia to discourse for a weapon giving weapons and no support to the separatist movement in the east of ukraine but also for racial discrimination in the crimea the area that was annexed by russia in 2014 and also for the downing of age 17 so basically this is a very crucial ruling if if the court decides that it wants to accept this case
5:21 pm
that it has the jurisdiction of course then ukraine will have a very strong international measure in its hand to put more pressure on russia but if the court rules there is no jurisdiction in this case of course this would be a win for russia and then ukraine doesn't have any other legal means at the moment to pursue reduce cases of what they say is an invasion of russia in ukrainian territory 5 years ago may last step the troop withdrawal plans in eastern ukraine that i hope should lead to negotiations between the countries to solve the conflict are they on track. exactly and that's interesting because of course this is a very different tragic that's been taken in ukraine on the ground itself while this is legal case in the hague the political developments are very different troops have been drawing from the front line in the last month already and we are
5:22 pm
expecting loss of 3rd troop withdrawal on saturday between the ukrainian troops on one side and the russian backed up for days on the other side and this withdrawal the way for a very important peace negotiation in the so-called normandy format which would bring ukraine russia and germany and france together to talk about this whole peace process so we can say that the president selenski has. committed to what he said in in his in his election campaign that he would want to bring peace to eastern ukraine he has made this kind of progress but moscow is still kind of skeptical it's still waiting and seeing how much power the lansky actually has had to face protests some quite serious protests in ukraine in the last couple of weeks and there is a lot of concern in ukraine that this deal with me will would mean that it's basically a capitalization to russia so zelinsky has a lot to deal with internally but yes there could be some white smoke again on
5:23 pm
