what exactly are the threats what are they trying to do how can they best protect the people of their country to protect against these threats and that doesn't seem to be done it's not like these federal law enforcement agencies are lazy just recently we heard from the f.b.i. that chinese foreign exchange students are a threat to national security we also had federal agencies urging us not to buy chinese brand cellphones and more recently congress renewed the power of the n.s.a. to wiretap and spy on american citizens some might come to the conclusion that it's not incompetence or a lack of effort the issue is rather the type of threats these agencies are choosing to focus on. our t. new york. palestinian schoolteacher has been left scarred after being moved by an israeli army dog and would have warning though you might find some of the following scenes upsetting mabrouk was assaulted in the west bank during a raid conducted by the israeli defense forces they were searching for another man
12:31 pm
the alleged killer of an israeli man who bears the same surname as to rob here we can see we can start to show you the extent of the injuries sustained during the morning the schoolteacher's expected to require further treatment including a skin graft to one of his arms he's also been left with a leg injury. so close that. i woke up when i heard explosions i looked at my house door and it had been destroyed by an i.d.f. bomb and after that there were several other explosions that destroyed the windows and damaged the house i went immediately to my children's room and we gathered after that there was another explosion that destroyed the bedroom door i saw a dog it started to attack me and bite my shoulder and it started to bite my leg and i was screaming. the palestinian schoolteacher was allegedly attacked in front of his children and his wife and us. this incident has had a psychological effect on my husband my children and myself i am staring at this
12:32 pm
hospital and i see he waking up at night shaking and trembling the elder son also wakes up screaming and bound he's that and the little one is waiting he was a terrifying experience the dog attacked my husband for over seven minutes and i tried to help him defend my husband by grabbing the dogs had what i couldn't get. we also the i.d.f. to comment on the case they responded by saying general had previously threatened civilians in jewish majority areas of the west bank they also told us the raid was conducted in accordance with standard procedures and that was immediately given medical treatment however he disputes that saying he had to wait to get treatment. afterward i was bleeding for more than two and a half hours and they took me to the hospital note that i only got treatment at the hospital itself not from the i.d.f.
12:33 pm
also in genesis might explain mental says the use of dogs is idea of policy. this you know is being cast by the israeli military and government as kind of an isolated incident but as any of us who follow the situation in the west bank know this is far from isolated it's part of a clear policy of using dogs as kind of an advance team during home raids of palestinians there is also a high profile case in twenty fifteen of a sixteen year old from the southern town of beit omar also a town that's under pressure from from jewish settlers where he his home was raided by an israeli dog unit this is a sixteen year old named him he was badly mauled by a dog you know these dogs apply two thousand pounds of pressure per square inch and israeli soldiers were taunting him on video there's actually video of this incident and now he. and the palestinian human rights group are suing not israel but
12:34 pm
actually the dutch company for winds canine which supplied those dogs and has supplied what it calls biting dogs to the israeli military for violating u.n. conventions on companies operating in conflict zones so this is a very significant lawsuit and it speaks to a wider policy of what the israeli dissident journalist gideon levy calls lynching by dog. and eight hundred percent increase the u.s. military plans to radically boost its stockpile of all tillery shells the show play .
12:35 pm
your policies and his labor practices the pressure oppressive measures being deployed against the palestinian people everywhere. except the colonialism the theft of land and the. devastating things that it is a doing of course began cool. and. welcome back to the program according to recent u.n.
12:36 pm
reports it will take decades to clear the iraqi city of mosul of unexploded bombs syrians works are being complicated by the fact that many of the bombs are buried under an estimated eleven million tons of rubble we spoke to the u.n. mine action services senior program manager he compares the situation in the city to that off to world war two. becomes too explosive a house thirds it is very and it is of unseen previously on the sea and proportions in terms of the contamination that we experience it is a mixture of coalition ammunition that has been fired and that has failed to function we are still made at least ten percent of that emanation. that has five been fired has failed to function we also find that ice is a mission that has been fired has failed to function but with higher failure rates in addition to that we also find improvised explosive devices different types of
12:37 pm
explosive improvised explosive devices with different fusing systems all in common a combination with rubble high degree of rubble we estimate eleven million ton of rubble in western model at least and in general a very difficult conditions to work under. it is a situation very similar to after the second world war of course what we are doing right now is that we are clearing we serving and we are clearing critical infrastructure but still after ten maybe twenty years maybe even longer there will still be explosive contamination. it is almost impossible to say we haven't got the food of contamination. we haven't been to a locations but it is a question of years and i'm doing everything has been cleared it is probably more
12:38 pm
than ten years as most all struggles to get back on its feet the iraqi government estimates that eighty eight billion dollars of required to rebuild the whole country as a global aid pledging conference in quake just over thirty percent of that figure was raised the u.s. led coalition started its anti eisel campaign in twenty sixteen but it's been embedded in the country since two thousand and three however washington's pledge just three billion of the eighty eight billion dollars in reconstruction aid needed and this was not in direct financial help rather the money was placed in loans and financing to help american firms invest in the country much work to rebuild iraq and modernize its. memorandum. the announcement by the us government representative in the kuwait
12:39 pm
conference was clear they will not provide anything except perhaps some investment in iraq we believe that the iraqi government with all these political factions should have joined forces and demanded to pay your money and. activists demanding justice for those killed in the massive ground fire in london last year chosen an unusual way to stage a protest they borrowed an idea from an oscar nominated film if you put up a billboard my daughter angela was murdered seven months ago. like in the award winning movie three billboards outside having the activists hired three billboards to send a clear message trucks carrying the words seventy one dead and still no arrests how come we're paraded across london critics say. questions over the safety of cheap housing have yet to be outside in the wake of june's tower disaster.
12:40 pm
activists will in many housing projects across the country suffer from the same construction problems as the ground and say authorities are failing to take action and as the. activists behind the billboard campaign it's been eight months since the ground fell tower tragedy shook the u.k. a twenty four story building was engulfed in flames the lives of seventy one people were lost with dozens more injured numerous campaigns protest demonstrations have taken place since calling for answers justice and accountability we're now joined by one of the co-founders of justice for grunfeld which is a grassroots community group obviously calling for justice and answers about thank you so much for joining us today two hundred ninety seven buildings that people are still moving into tie up and down the country that have the strength concert in the government's responses to that they should pay for it themselves to take it down.
12:41 pm
you know not serve the survivors still in temporary or emergency accommodation for those who really don't i think you know the survivors and the community i think prosecution of those responsible needs to take place we need to see people in the dark. and the need to suffer the same penalties that any other citizen would do rather than just kind of get him elected officials by people treatment or how likely do you think that might happen given it's been eight months already and we haven't seen one name or person be held accountable do you think that is not actually going to happen i think we're going to have to mikey humpin and we will continue to come time to my children happens how real is the fear that. something like this could happen again and while this investigation even is still continuing if i was sleeping in one of those buildings i don't think i'd be sleeping at night right now you know you cannot put people in unsafe building and why the government
12:42 pm
isn't reacting to this quickly and wrap it in the way your home she your home is your height and you have a right to admit it's a human right to have a safe shelter and we would continue and it would think you very much for joining us officials are continuing to conduct investigations into what exactly happened had grown a full tower that killed all of those people and it clear that the local could it's clear that the local community is going to continue fighting for those answers until we get them and archie monday. and eight hundred percent increase the u.s. military plans to radically boost its stockpile of artillery shells by almost one hundred fifty thousand units.
12:43 pm
the order includes one hundred fifty five millimeter artillery shells the standard nato caliber especially widespread among naval forces and g.p.s. guided excalibur rounds are also on the list designed for danger close situations we all security on this charles schumer bridge might be behind the surge in ammo orders. almost certainly one can say that these are used these are heavy weaponry they are used mainly in conventional conflicts what we're seeing here is a very large increase that i think can't be completely explained by replenishing used resources the what's being attempted i think it's a gesture it's a symbol that we are massively increasing our defenses. any shift in the areas that are likely to be used in a possible scenario with states rather non-state actors and invariably of course they're talking here about russia possibly china iran and others and that would be
12:44 pm
consistent with the new stated u.s. security policy of confronting those states by any standard this isn't a very great increase in the number shows being ordered a power for stockpiling which again means that the obvious affects for preparing for war. now traversing frozen over siberian lake in a pair of skates made over seventy years ago might not be everybody's idea of a daily commute but it is for one russian.
