hello hospitals in gaza are struggling to cope with the influx of palestinians injured by israeli troops fire at the border doctors say they're running out of medicine and supplies to treat patients many of whom were hit by live ammunition. the how many times more. she headed to the protests with her best friend wanting to vent her frustration of growing up under siege and armed with that reckless courage of a teenager marry him defiantly walk towards the fence aware the israeli army was warning against it by a lot and i wanted to show the world that we are still here we are not dead i didn't expect such a reaction from them i kept on walking towards the fence carrying a flag the boys followed us the soldiers could see me the snipers were pointing their weapons i had a backpack i took it off so they didn't think i was carrying something suspicious i
threw some stones hid and then started walking again i turned to look for my friend and i felt an excruciating pain in my leg two beds furder said brain is recovering from a bullet in her arm another and a foot and shrapnel in the stomach at only nineteen who lack of hope is painful to hear what. before going out i told my mother i wasn't planning to come back home i told her i wanted to become a martyr i even said my last prayer when i was standing next to two young boys one of them got shot i got angry they weren't doing anything we were just chatting together. the boy was carried away and cibrian walked up a little closer to the border fence this by did tear gas being fired in her direction and then. like mariam she fell to the ground. it was the bloodiest day in gaza since the war in two thousand and fourteen with israel firing live ammunition at crowds of stone throwers hundreds were admitted to hospital
doctors say most for gunshot wounds the hospital is overwhelmed by the amount of injured that arrived here in one day but doctors also say they don't have enough equipment or medicine to give the wounded the proper treatment. most of the injuries are in the lower part of the body but doctors were shocked at the extent and many patients had large gaping exit wounds doctors say they hadn't seen this before because of the type of exclusive bullets which in. the one one. around fifteen centimeters. ok so here comes. the tissue of the nerves and. anything and. the great march of return is
a planned six weeks demonstration cooling for refugees and their descendants to go back to their family homes in what is now israel large present spectate to return to the border on friday to commemorate did dead and honor to wounded everyone aware that it could unravel in the same way that many in gaza say they have nothing to lose what happened to me gaza despite facing widespread international condemnation israel denies using excessive force against palestinian protesters stephanie decker reports from western. 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 would be one use of it is the executive director of the u.s. campaign for palestinian rights he says there is no justification for the use of lethal force
a professor has posed no threat to israeli soldiers. what we know is that well ahead of the events israeli soldiers in fact the one hundred snipers as the israeli media has reported more sent down outside of gaza and given orders to fire upon anyone who even came close to. the demarcation so the israeli sources will who were actually given marching orders to use lethal force against people who did not pose a threat and i think what we have seen. in the days and hours since this march began is plenty of video evidence that shows many on armed individuals being shot by snipers from hundreds of meters away including many individuals who were killed and hundreds of people who are hit by live fire were injured
as well but i think also importantly is that what we saw on the ground the other day in the gaza strip was a massive mobilization of people very well organized and organized under a single flag a palestinian flag and i think this represents for palestinians a way forward that this might just be the beginning and i think that's a prospect that scares the israelis very much and one of the reasons why they attempted to wash it with such overwhelming lethal force from the outset because they simply do not know how to respond to massive nonviolent ocular mobilization and you know the palestinian organizers who are behind this event if this is the beginning of things to come it could provide a great deal of leverage for them moving forward really hitting
a achilles heel for an israeli state that is very much. well china has slapped tariffs of up to twenty five percent on more than one hundred twenty u.s. products including pork and wine it affects around three billion dollars worth of imports the move comes after the u.s. raise duties on foreign steel and many i'm imports last month beijing says it's safeguarding china's interests and balancing losses caused by the u.s. tariffs adrian brown has more from beijing. well last month president trump announced he was imposing tyrus of between fifteen and twenty five percent on imports of chinese steel and alum indian now china has responded in a detailed way it says that one hundred twenty eight items have been identified for new taxes ranging from fifteen to twenty five percent they include pork nuts fruit and wine and those new taxes will be imposed from monday says china what we haven't
had yet is a response from china to the second round of sanctions of president from pronounced against china also last month on some fifty billion dollars worth of chinese imports it's understood that the united states will decide what areas to hit sometime in the next five to six weeks at the moment it says it's having a public consultation period before deciding exactly what areas to hit but it's thought that the technology industry will be one area they will target particularly technologies that are part of china's made in twenty five plan this is china's plan to elevate and promote its high tech industries and this is what the united states could be aiming for so it's not so much a strategy at aiming for trying to reduce the trade deficit between china and the united states it's really aimed at chinese trade policy and abandoned chinese space

supreme court to intervene but it refused last month that was forced to renew some docket permits under court order president trump has vacillated on dhaka in meetings with congressional leaders earlier this year he seemed open to a permanent fix. but in recent weeks his attitude seems to have changed yet again prompted by security issues at the border with mexico and a proposed border wall with america's neighbor to the south that still remains largely unfunded diagnosed a broke al jazeera washington well there was a swift response to trump's comments from mexico from the man who is the favorite to win the presidential election in july and there's so many well lopez obrador says he'll demand respect for his country. you know. we're not going to rule out the possibility of convincing donald trump that his foreign policy is wrong and in particular his contemptuous attitude towards the mexicans. we're going to be very respectful towards the government of the united

the talk in a nation metropolis and we've still got a lot of cloud over the middle east at the moment the satellite picture is picking up that cloud over saudi arabia and that stretches all the way up into catholics down it's not really giving us a great deal of wet weather but ahead of it we think that pretty strong winds that wind is picking up a lot of dust so we're seeing quite a bit of dusty conditions across many parts of the middle east at the moment where we're seeing that cloud though that's going to thicken up i think as we head through monday and to choose day so particularly for some of us in afghanistan and up through into the stand we are going to see a fair amount of cloud a few outbreaks of rain and even some snow over the mountains as well another system is in the northwest of our map that's gradually edging its way eastwards you see that's bringing a fair amount of rain as well as we head through choose day and into wednesday a bit further towards the south and that cloud that's over saudi arabia could be sick enough to give us a few showers including for us in riyadh and that cloud doesn't really move
anywhere in a great hurry as we head through chews day so still sticking where it is for doha there things are changing the wind is easing and that means the dust will be dropping out of the atmosphere as well it will cloud will just be around the south coast of oman and that at times it could be thick enough just to give us a little bit of drizzle down tools in southern parts of africa for some of us in libya has quite a bit of rain around the coast and that's drifting south. the with the sponsored by cats on everybody's. winning the win if the people hinges on the mass media and state p.r. machine it's going to overdrive. but just. influencing. we just don't know yet where the lines we've been drawn between come to send and what conduct that. some journalists decided to sacrifice their integrity for access polling the media opinion the listening post base time on al-jazeera.
although again the top stories on al-jazeera hospitals and gaza are struggling to cope begin flocks of palestinians injured by israeli troops fire at the border many of the patients have been hit by live ammunition and doctors say they're running out of medicine china has slapped tariffs of up to twenty five percent on more than one hundred twenty u.s. products including pork and wine the move comes after the u.s. raised duties on foreign steel and alum minium imports last month donald trump says there will be no deal to save the deferred action for childhood arrivals or dakar it protects hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the
u.s. as children he's also threatened to pull out a free trip free trade agreements with mexico if the country doesn't do more to stop people from crossing the border. back to one of our top stories and christians and muslims have joined together in the occupied west bank for a march in the memory of the people killed in the israeli attack on gaza hama. john john reports. for those who came out it was a display of prayer and protest this peaceful interfaith march in the ramallah a striking reminder of how a day usually reserved for festivities had instead been consumed by morning at the start of the gathering father's amount of public told us why a memorial at this time was so important today is beyond sunday and usually at noon we have a procession in the streets of ramallah to celebrate about sunday but we decided to cancel the procession to replace it with this you know march in protest of the
massacre of that happened in gaza two days ago palestinian officials who had also assembled were grateful assad our brother and the christians insisted that the activities of this day be limited and to light candles to remember the monitors because we are all a united people whether in gaza old was bang christian or muslim those bullets that are coming out want to kill everything that is palestinian and there is no distinguishing between a muslim and a christian our blood is one of the somber mood highlighted in the faces of children and adults was palpable everybody we spoke with here today said that what was most important to them was to come out and to show their solidarity and to commemorate those who were killed in gaza. among the faithful there was also denunciation. and i mean should out today we condemned threw a holiday at palm sunday what happened and demand international protection for the
palestinian people and to stop messages against palestinians this. demands that for those who congregated here seem very unlikely to be met anytime soon. i'm alone in the occupied west bank syrian rebel group in the last opposition stronghold and says it has not yet reached a deal with the assad government zation islam denies reports by the government the lebanese group hezbollah that it's agree it's a vacuum a duma and says negotiations are still going on more than one hundred thousand civilians are said to be trapped in the town here's what the leader of zation islam had to say oh. we made a decision we will be here if we get it through negotiations it's good but if we do not get it what should we do we are now negotiating with the regime and trying as much as possible to protect our people from danger. will suffer at least fighters from the rebel groups have left these pictures from syrian state television are

the earliest known case of a type of bone marrow cancer was identified in the mail. it's an important finding because it shows cancer already existed long before we thought and of course cancer is part of the human genome and has been part of humanity since its inception another important thing is the appearance of these cancers and how advanced the disease was it shows there was a society behind the two people who died to develop society which took care of them until they died well south korea and the united states begin their annual joint military drills with were delayed by the winter olympics kathy novak has the details. 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 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 well south korean pop stars have put on a rare performance for north korea's leader kim jong il and it's the first musical

and they're beginning our first performances in pyongyang today and i find it very meaningful the south and north. but the process is a different i am proud and happy that we got to display to the north korean people . 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 for may. 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 saw in relations and that momentum appears to be continuing but all that didn't stop the u.s. and south korea kicking off a so-called low key joint military drill on sunday in last a month that featured the deployment of few a strategic weapons p to shop al-jazeera.
