8:02 pm
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 thought he would be safe as long as he didn't touch the barrier or throw stones. or it was just standing there when i felt something more like and it pushed me to the ground. hospitals in gaza struggling to cope with the influx of palestinian casualties nearly fifteen hundred people have reportedly been injured in the violence doctors say they're running out of medicine and supplies to treat patients many of whom were injured by live ammunition. the only way to some of these from day one of the protest the strategic stock at the hospitals especially sheaffer hospital have been running out 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. to abdel-hamid is in gaza and
8:03 pm
she's been speaking to some of the engine it. 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 a high caliber bullets they did duck 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 the 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
8:04 pm
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 mile hania the leaders 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 a just
8:05 pm
a day before in which the army also said that it had showed restraint 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 deca in west jerusalem and stephanie as we're hearing the has been international condemnation of what's taken place at the gaza israel border what is israel saying about its response to these protests while you you hinted at it there particularly when it comes to the defense minister avigdor lieberman saying that the soldiers did what they had to do and it is his words that they will deserved a medal israel's argument is security and this is again what you mentioned earlier the fact that it only targeted those that were in danger of breaching and even in israel's words planting explosives on that separation fence even the general come on saying that this wasn't a proper protest this was
8:06 pm
a communal mass effort to breach that security fence however of course looking at social media having been on the on the ground and knowing what we know that tens of thousands of civilians also came out in protest in a real unprecedented move we haven't seen this in gaza before firing at people running away from the border there this is why you have this sort of international outcry of excessive force it is not the first time that these ready or he has been accused of excessive force but what israel always comes back with is that they are acting in the interests of their national security. so tensions remain high as you say this is we've seen some of the deadliest times over here for a few years since two thousand and fourteen and their fear is of more to come. well i think so i think you heard hoda there say that this is planned to continue for six weeks i think the days will ebb and flow but certainly the fridays i think
8:07 pm
there is potential to see these protests continue in this number and in particular because the people in gaza do not have a voice they've been living besieged by both israel and egypt for many years the situation is dire it is hugely densely populated two million people they believe they believe know they have been abandoned by their leaders whether it's how the us whether it's the palestinian authority in the west bank. the international community so this is how people feel and i think there is a feeling that they are being heard in a way and i think this now is their moment whether it's going to make a difference or not but certainly i think it poses a challenge to the israeli army because usually when it comes to conflict with gaza you see rockets being fired from the various groups inside gaza into israel we haven't seen that the iron dome has been deployed which is of course the system that intercept these rockets but now you're dealing with tens of thousands of civilians who are trying to make their voice heard and i think it's going to be
8:08 pm
very difficult for israel to continue clamping down in the way that we saw this friday all right thank you very much stephanie deca in west jerusalem. now north korean leader kim jong un and his wife of joined hundreds of people who watched south korea's k. pop stars perform in pyongyang for the first time in over a decade kim who is the first north korean leader to attend a concert of south korean perform is reportedly enjoyed the two hour concert and was seen clapping along to some of the songs on hundred twenty don says musicians technicians and martial artists arrived in pyongyang on saturday in a reciprocal visit after the north sent athletes to the winter olympics. will it comes as south korea in the united states begin their annual joint military drills which would delay by the winter olympics in twelve thousand u.s. troops and joining south korean soldiers kathy novak has more from seoul. these
8:09 pm
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.
8:10 pm
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 at least four civilians have died in massive anti india protests which broke out in the southern villages of indian administered kashmir the demonstrations took place of the indian forces launched a counterinsurgency operation of the night killing at least thirteen rebels three soldiers also died in the gun battle and the kashmiris say they openly support anti india rebels several protesters tried to march to the gun battle sites to help the trapped fighters escape residents then began throwing rocks at indian forces who responded with live ammunition shotgun pellets and to gas. hiding tonight they called off the villages there is no count of the injured people they martyred all civilians and much of dean if they think kashmir struggle for freedom
8:11 pm
will end by such means but god willing the freedom movement rise like we saw on and the struggle belongs to our youngsters. at least ten people have died after a hotel collapsed in the indian city of indoor local officials say up to five people may still be trapped under the rubble indian media say the four story building came down after it was rammed by a vehicle government has ordered an investigation. now u.s. president donald trump has again spoken out on immigration saying there won't be a deal to legalize the status of young people living in the country without papers also known as dreamers of mourners let's go straight to roslyn jordan in washington and so roslyn is this a reversal of the indications we've been getting from the white house on this before. well it's really hard to track where the white house is on any given policy but certainly on immigration policy mari i'm the president has been
8:12 pm
rather consistent in indicating that he wants to cut the numbers of people from other countries coming to the united states to live and work and so even though he is in a series of tweets on sunday accusing congressional democrats of not doing enough to help him find an alternative to the program known as dhaka it's also patently clear that he is trying to take other steps that would essentially make it much harder for people to come see the united states now you might be wondering why in the middle of a weekend in which so many christians and so many jews are observing their respective holidays with the president be talking about immigration well apparently he was watching fox news on sunday and saw a report about people's caravan hondurans who are coming through mexico as we speak trying to make their way to the united states to ask for asylum these people
8:13 pm
according to a report by buzz feed indicate that since the election of the new president mr have a non does in two thousand and seventeen that violence has increased and that they fear for their family safety so but again even though the president seems to be very angry about this people's caravan this is what he told pool reporters on his way into easter sunday services just in the last hour. to come here because when. they. were. late. to take them you're going to got. water. right. they said. then. of course now that the president has brought mainstream attention to the fact that
8:14 pm
the people's caravan is on its way from southern mexico north to the border between mexico and the united states it's probably expected that you will see a robust us homeland security presence along the southern border in order to invent these people from crossing over and requesting asylum that said i would think that congressional democrats might take issue with the president's contention that they haven't done enough to try to negotiate some sort of replacement for daca which essentially was set up for those children who were brought to the united states before two thousand and seven when they were very young and their parents never bothered or never were able to get them any sort of residency papers all right thank you very much rosen and jordan in washington. without is there still to come but swan is new president is sworn in with
