i maryam namazie in london you're watching al-jazeera also coming up. deadly anti india protests break out in kashmir after government troops launch operations against separatist rebels. south korean athletes and. shows in north korea is that country resumes its military drills with the u.s. . and sydney takes outside tending into the hottest ticket in town even if it means watching it in the right. hospitals in gaza struggling to cope with the influx of palestinians injured by israeli troops at the border nearly fifteen hundred people have reported. been
injured since landay protests turned violent along the gaza israel border on friday doctors say they're running out of medicine and supplies to treat patients many of whom were injured by live ammunition israel says it will step up its military action if there's more violence along the border. from day one of the protests the strategic stock at the hospitals especially sheaffer hospital have been running out of because of that we're calling on donors to supply hospitals with medicine and other medical supplies for the sensitive departments like emergency operation rooms and the intensive care rooms in order to be able to continue serving these injured people. israel's defense minister has rejected international calls for an investigation into friday's violence of a door lieberman says the troops acted appropriately firing only a palestinian protesters who posed a threat a twelve year old boy hit by israeli gunfire says he was about thirty meters away from the border and thought he would be safe as long as he didn't touch the barrier
or throw stones were you i was just standing there when i felt something hit my leg and it pushed me to the ground because of the. on the abdel-hamid has been visiting the engine inside gaza. does for those here in gaza overwhelmed health officials say that eight hundred and five people were injured by live ammunition now the doctors i spoke to say that it seems that the israeli soldiers have used high caliber bullets they deduct that from the extent of the wounds that they have seen on many of the patients now speaking to the. doodoo wounded as some of them would tell you that they never expected such a response from the israeli soldiers i spoke to some that said that they actually did to hurl some stones but they were quite far away from the fence at least about a hundred meters away one girl said that she was carrying her flag she even went to
the extent of taking off a backpack for the soldiers not just think that she was carrying something suspicious and she stood there and that's when she got shot actually her blood was caught on video now when you ask people are you going to go back to defense are you going to continue that six week long sit in which is dubbed as the long march of return and well everybody seems to say yes they will they say that they have no other means at this point to negotiate for themselves that they have been under siege now for more than a decade the nothing is getting better and it is actually no hope for them when they look to defuse or so days say that they will continue doing that research and we also heard from the had a mass it's my linea believe their said that friday was the first step that actually the palestinians have showed restraint last friday but they don't know
what will happen next that was probably in retaliation to the statement issued by the israeli army in. just a day before it was the army also said that it had children strained and if this situation and that tension continues of the border it will actually also retaliate with force. so let's go live now to stephanie decker in west jerusalem and stephanie as we're hearing that israel has denied the use of excessive force what more can you tell us about the political reaction to this. well the israeli prime minister's applauded the action of that of the soldiers in the israeli defense minister avigdor lieberman he said that there will be no independent inquiry that has been called from the united nations to look into the fact that such a high number of people were killed seventeen dead and over eight hundred injured
by life fire from. authorities so basically what they're saying is that this was a major security breach that this was not a normal protest that this was an attempt to break the border fence between gaza and israel but of course looking at the video what you see is unarmed protesters running away there's various different videos and some of them show different angles of people running away from the border fence and are being shot at that seem to pose no threat so i think it is a sort of new kind of confrontation if you will or challenge for these really army that you have tens of thousands of un armed protesters standing at the border fence basically just reiterating calling for recognition of the desperate situation they have been enduring for many years now and i think this is going to be a challenge going forward because the international community is looking and of course these protests are expected to continue for at least six weeks now so how
they're going to react to this with the numbers remain the same whether their excessive use of force remains the same we'll have to see right and as you were saying the u.n. the e.u. international bodies have been calling for an independent and transparent investigation into what has happened it has attracted a great deal of international attention what has been the reaction of the israeli public. well i mean people don't really discuss it very openly i think when it comes to security of israel when it comes to the army in particular people are very much united in defending their army because the nature of it here marian mayors conscription you know sons and daughters mothers fathers of all served in the army so there is a real sense of i think almost family when it comes to doubt there's been incidences here many incidences when the army has been accused of using excessive force things quote on camera and even though people privately might say well that perhaps wasn't quite the right way to act there will never be a big acceptance of public finger pointing at the army at particularly young
soldiers of acting in an inappropriate way so i think yes because you now have this international spotlight on friday we're expecting more protests particularly every friday i think will be something to watch while the numbers remain the same and again it's unprecedented really looking at the numbers and the fact that these are civilians usually confrontations that israel has with gaza is armed factions is rocket fire israel has deployed in the aryan dome this is the system that intercepts rockets well there's been no rocket fire so far since friday it is all a very different move and i think it is a challenge for israel and the army to sort of contain it in their eyes moving forward certainly if the numbers remain so big they cannot simply open fire on tens of thousands of unarmed protesters thank you very much stephanie deca with the latest from west jerusalem.
several people have died after a massive anti india protests broke out in the southern villages of indian administered kashmir demonstrations kicked off the indian forces launched a counterinsurgency operation overnight killing at least thirteen rebels three soldiers also died in the gun battle and kashmiris say they openly support anti india rebels. several protesters tried to march to the gun battle sites to help the trapped fight as escape residents then began throwing rocks at indian forces who responded with live ammunition shotgun pellets and take gas at least four civilians have been killed in the clashes. at least ten people have died after a hotel collapsed in the indian city of indo local officials say up to five people may still be trapped under the rubble indian media say the four story building came down off it was rammed by a vehicle the government has ordered an investigation. north korean leader
kim jong un and his wife sold to of joined hundreds of people who watched south korea's k. pop stars perform in pyongyang for the first time in decades kim who is the first north korean leader to attend a concert of south korean before ms reportedly enjoyed the two hour concert and was seen clapping along to some of the songs one hundred twenty dances musicians technicians and martial artists arrived in pyongyang on saturday in a reciprocal visit after the north sent athletes to the winter olympics well this comes as south korea in the united states begin their annual joint military drills which were delayed by the winter olympics twelve thousand u.s. troops are joining south korean soldiers kathy novak has more from seoul. these annual joint military drills usually take place earlier in the year but they were delayed so as not to coincide with the winter olympics and paralympics that were taking place here in south korea north korea usually react angrily to drills like
this calling them a rehearsal for an invasion even though the u.s. and south korea say they are defensive in nature but of course lately there has been a more peaceful atmosphere here on the korean peninsula and in light of that it seems that these drills are likely to be more low key the scale will be the same as in previous years but instead of running for two months they are expected to run for one month of course that is the time when there is a lead up to a summit meeting between the leaders of north and south korea and plans for a possible meeting between the leader of north korea kim jong un and the u.s. president donald trump so another sign of a more cooperative atmosphere between the two koreas and indeed between the u.s. and north korea with shorter drills planned and we're not likely to see what's known as strategic assets including nuclear powered aircraft carriers this time around. the governor of russia's kemmer of a region has resigned over the fire in
a shopping center a week ago at least sixty four people died in the blaze making it one of the worst in russia's recent history investigators say the alarm was turned off and fire exits only going to be blocked even children locked inside the cinema i've been lodged protests over the way the authorities handled the night and see present like jim of pollution is that it was caused by criminal negligence and is promised that those responsible will be punished so you would. choose that today you know i want to tell you but i offered my resignation to the president of russia i consider this decision to be correct deliberate and the only thing to do because it is impossible to hold a post governor with such a heavy burden which is impossible moly. well in all the developments russian diplomats expelled from the u.s. have arrived back in moscow president donald trump ordered sixty russians out of the country in response to the poisoning of the former russian double agent service cripple and his daughter in the u.k.

a dry day shanghai temperatures twenty four degrees this time but over the next couple of days is when we're going to see the temperatures drop away over towards the west and there's a fair amount of cloud in the eastern parts of india and up through bangladesh but that melts away on the satellite picture and then if we see the old shower over the next day or so will be unlucky really most of us seeing fine dry weather but it is now getting very hot look at this thirty eight tonight poor force in new delhi thirty nine for the phone northern parts of india and some of us in the northern parts of pakistan there will be more clouds during the day on tuesday and that might just squeeze out the old shower towards the west there's also a lot of cloud around the arabian peninsula at the moment to mostly over parts of saudi arabia but it does stretch further north across. and eventually it works into iran as well it may give us the odd shout perhaps particularly likely over saudi arabia here in doha looks like the winds are really that the dust should begin to drop out as well still thirty four.
