2:03 pm
prayers i'm in jabalya refugee camp in the north of the gaza strip and the being these rallies across the gaza strip after friday prayers now the mood is much as it's been over the last couple of days it is one of anger but it's also one of sadness and deep frustration at the fact that the palestinians have not gotten anywhere in almost twenty five years of peace talks with the israelis we had a senior hamas official speaking here and in the last few minutes he did call for an on to confrontation across the palestinian territories so that sums up movement of hamas which remains was handed over control politically of gaza to the palestinian authority it remains a very powerful and dominant force here and so those hamas officials trying to build on that deep frustration is felt here it's hard for palestinians here to protest directly against israelis if you like the opportunities for direct confrontation. with israeli security forces are less than they would be in the
2:04 pm
occupied west bank but nevertheless i might see this afternoon as we saw yesterday some palestinians trying to approach border fences between gaza and israel there was stone throwing yesterday with israeli forces and they responded with live fire and we might see some more about this afternoon peter is there a degree of orchestration choreography to what we're seeing there bernard or is it does it feel more spontaneous than that. you know there's no orchestration there is a genuine feeling amongst palestinians here on frustration yes they've been called to rally yes they've been called to protest nobody is forcing them to do this this is a very strong feeling that palestinians will talk to here on in the occupied west bank feel they feel that jerusalem they dream of jerusalem as being a future east jerusalem of being a future capital of a future palestinian state they feel that opportunity been taken away from them by what donald trump said and so that frustration is being expressed there's been
2:05 pm
a lot of frustration building up over many years in fact this camp where i am is where coincidentally thirty years ago today an israeli armored vehicle crushed into a palestinian civilian vehicle killing four civilians in that vehicle and that sparked the first intifada the first uprising not common here thirty years ago today those frustrations still a strong now bernard thank you. the u.k. and the e.u. have reached a deal on the first stage of bricks at the negotiations following months of tension it allows the talks to move on to the next phase on trade negotiations had stalled of the citizens' rights after breaks its the u.k. so-called divorce payment on the border between northern ireland and the republic michel best fellas. as dawn broke in brussels it brought with it a breakthrough on brics it british prime minister theresa may and bricks at secure tree david davis negotiated through the night to finalize the begin. of the divorce
2:06 pm
deal with the the commission has just formally decided to recommend. that sufficient progress as being made on the street terms of the divorce getting to this point has required give and take on both sides friday was the last possible day for a deal to be done so the european council could prepare and then vote next week both sides admitted they made last minute compromises to meet the deadline. we've been working extremely hard this week and as you will see it hasn't been easy for either side. the meeting on monday ended in deadlock the sticking point was what will become of the only land border between them northern ireland and the republic of ireland which is in the the republic wanted guarantees it will remain open with no return to a so-called hard border with border guards the government coalition partners in
2:07 pm
northern ireland the democratic unionist party vetoed an earlier version of the deal and force may back to the drawing board the result. in northern ireland we will guarantee there will be no hard border and we will uphold the belfast agreement and in doing so we will continue to preserve the constitutional and economic integrity of the united kingdom even though it's only stage one of negotiations e.u. citizens living in britain and british citizens residing in europe did get some certainty about their future the deal we've struck will guarantee the rights of more than three million e.u. citizens living in the u.k. and of a million u.k. citizens living in the e.u. they will be able to go on living their lives as before it's been eight months since may signed article fifty which triggered britain's departure from the european union fifteen months remain to decide the details of the divorce i read always preset the boat is the vote but now we must start looking for the
2:08 pm
future good future been rich united kingdom we'll be untrue to remove a close friend and fellow talks now into the second phase to focus on trade and security with many jobs potentially at risk people on both sides of the english channel hoping the breakup is amicable shallop ballasts al-jazeera. is an economist joining us now from london connie good to talk to you as over here on al jazeera english i mean european business once clarity here does it have that. absolutely not i mean if it's good i mean it's it's vital for the u.k. that we can move on to twenty eight negotiations but if you are a big bank and you need to decide whether to leave your risk department in london or move it to let's say frankfurt you need to make that decision you know more than a year before before d.-day so what really is needed now is to very
2:09 pm
quickly come up with a transitional period to sort to say to kick the can down the road so business has a little bit more time to make those hard decisions michel barnier the used bricks and goosey it's a basically framing this is well i see on twitter in terms of the good friday agreement very much talking about the peace dividend so does that give both the e.u. and the london government a kind of a get out clause because there are very strong regional voices within the u.k. saying look if you come up with a special deal for northern island what about us you know exactly and i think that's that's a very that's a very difficult one and i don't quite i don't quite understand how do you go and don't square the having no hard border and having having having a northern ireland totally this week at the same as everybody else so did they know
2:10 pm
it's going to be some hard discussions on that going forward but at least at least we're now at a point where we can start with trade negotiations and i think we really had to get over that or things would have unraveled is that why it's now going to get harder not easier because despite some of the headlines out of the u.k. in the past two or three hours i mean some of the people saying the deal is done but the d u p they're saying no actually guys the deal is not done now is when it gets really really tough. no i mean if i wouldn't even go so for us as a standing with the northern irish issue which is a very different different one because you know irish politics have always been fought with a lot of passion and then till twenty years ago with a lot of arms but i would go into the trade negotiations that's weak it's really hard and it gets really detailed trade negotiations are hard things to negotiate and they're very detail driven and that's why i'm a bit worried because the e.u.
2:11 pm
is pretty strong on detail but so far the british team has been very good in ambiguity and with the trade negotiations ambiguity will not do cornelia as ever thank you thank you very much. russia's foreign minister says north korea wants direct talks with the us passed on the message to the u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson in vienna on thursday that follows the north's latest launch of a missile which it says can hit anywhere in america and threats of nuclear retaliation from donald trump the u.s. and south korea are wrapping up a week of military exercises pyongyang has long called for an end to those joint drills and realign cough is a professor korean studies at the university he says russia is looking to play a role as mediator. russia is unpopulated last get here but it significantly lists popular than any major country most guardians don't trust
