four civilians are killed as anti india protests break out in kashmir over army operations against separatist rebels. hope and diplomatic goodwill a south korean performance receive a warm reception from of the in the north. and donald trump says the deal is off on young immigrants in the u.s. known as the dream. israel's defense minister has rejected international calls for an investigation into the killing of sixteen palestinian this during milan's day protests on the gaza border lieberman says the trip was acted appropriately firing only at 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. i was just standing there when i felt so many more legs and it pushed me to the ground. hospitals in gaza are 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 life i mean ition. away. from day one of the protest 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 room in order to be able to continue serving these injured people. al-jazeera is how they are tell him it is in gaza she's been talking to injured people. 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 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 her 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 of how mass is milan media believe there said that friday was the first step that actually led 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 just a day before in which the army also said that it had childress trained and. if this situation and that tension could to the border it will actually also retaliate with
force. let's get the view from west jerusalem where al-jazeera is stephanie decker has more on israeli denials of excessive force. little boils down to security this is the argument that israel always uses when it is accused of using excessive force it's not the first time it has been accused of that it's army certainly and we had the defense minister avigdor lieberman said that the soldiers basically did exactly what they had to do and that in his opinion they all deserved to magill now the opinion here of these radio leadership and the army is that groups that they deem terrorist organizations like hamas and other islamic factions inside gaza are using these protests or hijacking them so to speak to sort of you know breach the border the you know the fence the barrier fence whatever you want to call it and even israel goes as far as to say planting explosive devices but the reality is you've
got tens of thousands of people who are now protesting peacefully at this barrier if we're going to see these protests continue it is a different challenge israel is facing this hasn't happened in gaza before to this scale they're going to have to be very careful as to how they go forward also because the international community has already condemned israel saying it is used excessive force and there should be an independent investigation which of course the defense minister is very clearly said there won't be one. at least four civilians have died in massive anti india protests which broke out in the southern villages of indian administrate kashmir the demonstrations kicked off after indian forces launched a counter insurgency operation overnight killing at least thirteen rebels three soldiers also died in the gun battle many cash various say they openly supported
anti india rebels several protesters tried to march to the gun battle sites to help the truck fighters escape residence then began throwing rocks at indian forces who responded with live ammunition shotgun pellets and tear gas. actually in an odd way again like here tonight they cordoned off the villages there is no count of the injured people they martyred are civilians. they think of the kashmir struggle for freedom or end by such means but god willing to freedom movement will rise like the sun this struggle belongs to youngsters. and at least ten people have died after a hotel collapsed in the indian city of indoor local officials say five people may still be trapped under the rubble according to indian media the four story building came down after it was rammed by a vehicle the government has ordered an investigation. north korean leader kim jong un and his wife. have joined hundreds of people who watched south korea's k.
pop star perform in pyongyang for the first time in over a decade one hundred twenty thousand says musicians technicians and martial artists arrived in pyongyang on saturday and a reciprocal visit after the north and athletes to the winter winter olympics pizza shop as well. this was a cultural charm offensive that would be set to music after months of escalating military tensions the north korean leader kim jong un seemed determined to enjoy himself as he arrived for the first concert in pyongyang by a team of south korean entertainers. the north korean audience starved of a little like musical entertainment we're loving it. the singers and dancers want to draw a card tonight. i.
talk kwon do may be an acquired taste in parts of the world. but enthusiasm for this martial arts display. unites north and south i. want to go ahead and they're beginning our first performances in pyongyang today and i find it very meaningful to the south and not to take window culture said the origin but the process is a different i am proud and happy that we got to display it to the north korean people taekwondo or the. north korean officials passing on this thanks to the visitors from the south a little evening distraction before the serious stuff a meeting by the two leaders later this month and face to face with president trump judging from a. it was the sight of a limping athletes from north and south korea marching under a unified flag at the opening of the games marked
a significant thaw in relations and that momentum appears to be continuing peter shop al-jazeera. south korea and the united states have begun their annual joint military drills which were delayed by the winter olympics nearly twelve thousand u.s. troops are joining the south korean soldiers cafe nova from so. 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 a 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 iran's president donald trump has again spoken out on immigration saying that won't be a deal to legalize the sake of young people living in the country without papers also known as dreaminess for more let's get straight to roslyn jordan in washington d.c. so what else has it been saying. well he also went on twitter early on sunday which is easter sunday as well as the third day of passover
to essentially say that the caravan of migrants from central america will not be allowed to cross into the united states that he was blaming congressional democrats for tying the hands as it were of border patrol officers who are meant to prevent an authorized immigration into the united states and when he spoke to reporters before heading into easter sunday church services this is what donald trump had to say about immigration. coming in here when. they. were very late. to take it you're going to get it. right. they said that.
and again sue it's very curious why donald trump would raise this issue on easter sunday congress has been out of session for the past week it's not clear when congressional members are returning to washington to resume their work and certainly even though the president himself suspended this program for undocumented children who were brought to the united states they had to be in this country before two thousand and seven that's eleven years ago so any people who would be coming to the united states right now wouldn't be able to take advantage of dhaka anyway which is itself of course the target of a number of courtroom fights and enjoy an ally for us and washington d.c. . still to come on al-jazeera botswana's new president is sworn in with a pledge to win the country off its dependence on diamonds glass cloudy with a chance of space debris china's defunct space station is forecast to crash back to
work in the next twenty four hours but no one knows where. the a. and either the rain is still pouring across many parts of europe at the moment the satellite picture is showing this huge expanse of cloud that falls bringing us our very wet weather we're also seeing some hail out of this and lots of thunder and lightning to the whole system is working its way up towards the northeast and it's still developing as it does so so we're seeing strong the winds on monday and more intense outbreaks of rain and snow a lot of that will be snow particularly on its move an edge behind it the something of a break so berlin looks nice at seven degrees vienna about fourteen but in the west there's another weather system that's piling its way in and that will bring us some very heavy downpours over parts of britain and ireland as we head through monday i think actually pushes its way northward across parts of scandinavia there for
choose day behind it still very unsettled with some rather strong winds so all very messy across many parts of europe there for a choose day for the other side of the mediterranean lots of cloud have another great deal of what weather what one weather system has over positiveness yes stretching across parts of libya and there's a break before the next weather system is working its way in from spain and portugal that edges its way eastwards and the cloud does they can operate off to give us a bit of rain on choose day particularly around the coast of algeria i think that's where we're going to see some of the worst outbreaks of rain. tracing the fall from prosperity to financial ruin this is peace movement with. nothing worse first growth the injury the devastating impact to save the means also to save the deposit simple ordinary citizens and the failure to prevent disaster
banks and political leaders of the people who need to learn our gora from democracy to the markets on al-jazeera. welcome back remind all of the top stories here on al-jazeera of spittle of engel's are struggling to cope with an influx of palestinians injured by israeli gunfire and protests along the border israel's defense minister has rejected calls for an investigation into the killing of sixteen palestinians jury in the demonstrations at least four civilians have died during anti india protests in indian administered
kashmir off the government forces launched a deadly operation against separatist rebels and north korean leader kim jong un and his wife resolved to have joint hundreds of people watching south korea's k. pop stars perform and. let's go back to our top story now and join mohammed john june live for us from ramallah in the west bank where a memorial was held for the palestinians who died in the gaza shootings but there's a political divide between the west bank and gaza but i'm assuming this is a real sense of solidarity with what is happening on the border. yeah that's absolutely right sue this was in fact an interfaith gathering this was called by the council of churches a decision was made by them to cancel any and all festivities that would normally have happened today for christians celebrating either palm sunday or easter sunday and in fact just try to have this service to really show their solidarity for
gazans and also to commemorate the victims those who were killed in that violence two days ago now we were there at that march this was a peaceful and very brief march just walking from a church in downtown through a few blocks and back toward the church the people that we spoke with all said that it was extremely important that they come out that they show gazans that they are standing in solidarity with them but they are trying to commemorate the victims at a very sensitive time we spoke to priests who were there that were saying today this is not about a christian or a muslim issue this simply about a palestinian issue and we want to protest the policies of the israeli government towards palestinians most things can get tense on the streets way you are is it like it and this could be all over there are you mentioned it is it has been peaceful so far. today where we are it has
been calm the mood has been somber it has been mournful understandably so concern is what's going to happen tomorrow because you have political factions that are going to meet tomorrow there has been a call to escalate demonstrations for there to be more marches being led by palestinians against the policies of the israelis and the occupation so everybody is really wondering right now what exactly are we going to see in the days of head even though the organizers of these demonstrations to come are insisting that they be peaceful that no violence break out many times in the past you had such calls and violence has erupted clashes have erupted so that's really where we are right now we just don't know at this point we will be monitoring tomorrow but there are concerns that things could get violent here at this time a very sensitive time a very tense time this week ahead going to get the day from.
the syrian rebel group in charge of the last opposition stronghold in eastern guta again denying reports it's a great to evacuate. islam says the reports five a syrian government and lebanese armed group hezbollah off else and it's not allowing its members to leave duma for rebel held areas in the north over one hundred thousand civilians are said to be trapped in the town which suffered major damage during the government assault separately fighters from the file lock out raman rebel group have left juma pitches from the syrian state television said to show the feis us and their families all the government buses i think for italy province. pope francis has used his easter message to call for peace around the world about eighty thousand people were in st peter's square to hear his address in an apparent reference to the recent violence in gaza he called for reconciliation
in the holy land he also called for action to bring the war in syria to an end. you know you don't mind them or through t.v. but today we implore the fruits of peace upon the entire world beginning with the beloved and long suffering lead to syria his people are worn down by apparently endless fuel. the light of the risen christ illuminate the consciences of all political and military leaders to the swift may be brought to the carnage humanitarian law may be respected and provisions be made to be. needed by brothers and sisters also allowing the return of the displaced. 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 so i guess crippled and his daughter in the u.k. last month dozens of russian diplomats have been expelled by britain and its allies
russia in turn has ordered diplomats from twenty three countries to leave. the governor of russia's carom over region has resigned over the fire in a shopping center one 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 were illegally blocked leaving children locked in a cinema in large protests over the way the authorities handled the emergency president vladimir putin has said it was caused by criminal negligence and has promised that those responsible will be punished. so you were. actually president today and now i want to tell you that 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 the post of governor with such a heavy burden it is impossible morally. but for honest new president has vowed to

the harbor it's become so popular sales are outperforming shows inside the world famous sydney opera house and it's attracting a new crowd to the arts as andrew thomas explains. home sydney's opera house is the city's most famous building but sydney's most successful oprah's a shown here not in soit the opera house but using it as a backdrop this year its lab o.-n. showing on a stage overhanging the hall because water on the edge of a city park this is the dress rehearsal for a full week run last year when common was shown here most performances sold out this is what opera was originally about it was a very very popular art form and here three thousand seats were doing twenty six performances of the one opera means that it's it's reaching the people but i think are important opera australia as engaging
a wide audience is vital and outdoor pro with subtitles here is what brings in the crowds is nothing's going on and i'm just trying to focus on what's going on so i don't sound french unfortunately certain this kind and i'm going to have what you think is an italian initially but. then for other reasons and what do you think of the setting yeah it's amazing it of using saying i'm not here i'm not fussed at all now that i just love seeing is i don't understand to tell you know french or anything that i like that. i like the fact that it's translated for me. but outdoor acoustics can never match those inside the best opera houses and it's hard to suspend reality and be in la bohem is paris with the real sights and sounds of sydney on either side of the stage. and then there is the weather for no refunds if it rains the show only stops in dangerous lightning storms so cannot for ever really be enjoying it if you're sitting what she gets some cool whites for the
dress rehearsal many were you never going to control the way that they're going to be not to get rained out it just happens there are probably some people that are snobby about it and that's fine if they want to be. enjoy the experience for what it is like. it's a totally different experience and it's a wonderful experience and enjoy it for today's most do the reviews have been almost universally good andrew thomas al jazeera sydney. and don't forget there's plenty more to read and watch on our website just click on al-jazeera dot com for lots more news. let's get you up to speed on the top stories on al-jazeera israel's defense minister has rejected international calls for an investigation into the killing of sixteen palestinians during landay protests on the gaza border our door lieberman
