8:03 pm
war anything we brought them to protect ourselves from israeli snipers. last friday's killings happened on what the palestinians called lend it's an annual protest an act of resistance to israeli occupation and the seizure of land for illegal jewish settlements. this year israel warned that open fire if anyone approached the border fence and then they followed through. fourteen hundred people were injured many shot by more than one hundred israeli snipers some in the back as they ran away another is he price given the large number of injuries and deaths the ominous statements made by israeli authorities in the days leading up to the protest as well as indications that the individuals killed or wounded were unarmed or did not pose a serious threat to well protected security forces and in some cases were actually running away from the green line fence there are strong indications that security
8:04 pm
forces used excessive force. israel has ruled out any investigation by the united nations all the european union into disproportionate use of force it blames him us for inciting its people is a travesty for the palestinian people that the hamas government is encouraging its people to attack israel is encouraging its people to commit acts of violence and encouraging them to actually storm into israel to try to destroy israel and kill as many people as possible palestinians will camp here until the fifteenth of may the day israel was created seventy years ago others will continue to press on the border taunting israel security forces and remembering what the lost loved ones and land they hold mirrors to blind the snipers hoping the world can see as they reflects the violence shot at dallas al-jazeera. abdel-hamid has been speaking to
8:05 pm
palestinian demonstrators inside gaza and asked them over and over again why are you going there you've seen what happened last week i mean the bullets used by these really high velocity bullets we were in the hospital a few days ago and they actually they it's not just the wounded they mainly at people nevertheless the many young people said we have nothing to lose at this stage one young man was telling me i am sixteen i finished school i dropped out of school because simply it was a point for me to study there is nothing for me there is frustration there is anger not only had the blockade by egypt and israel but also at their own political leadership at the fact that nothing is getting better people here young people did majority of those who are down there teenagers or in their early twenty's have only known war since they were born has only known hardship and they see no end in sight
8:06 pm
so many will tell you and it's quite shocking to hear especially when you're looking at the face of that person and he's so young that they have nothing to lose at this stage they will keep on getting the taking the grievances right to dead fence for everyone to see obviously many of them are quite i would say ambitious day say that at some point they will be able to cross that says and you have to bear in mind that all of them are descendants of refugees so all of them have an original home town across the fence has now asked me to buy and it's met at the damascus gate in occupied east jerusalem tellus bennett how has israel try to handle a build up we've seen today. well we've seen in the run up to the second friday of demonstrations in gaza really an unprecedented sort of propaganda campaign from the israeli military and the israeli government aimed at the palestinians in gaza so those messages of course in arabic coming out in tweets
8:07 pm
coming out and recorded messages we see in the israeli military send out a tweet one had a picture of a of tires burning against a picture of a green house full of growing vegetables saying to the palestinians there what you prefer environmental pollution or food we also know that the administration is really ministration that keeps troops looks over the palestinian territories has phoned bus drivers in gaza ahead of today's protests urging them not to carry palestinians to those protests now whether that's had any effect on the numbers of people protesting this friday they are lower than they were last friday we don't yet know so these rallies really normally have never had to handle or sort of a mass protest like this they used to rockets coming over there used to dealing with that sort of situation in gaza this was something different and this is why we saw this unprecedented really propaganda attempt to try and dissuade palestinians
8:08 pm
in gaza from taking part one we've heard of the international criticism in one of the reports earlier in this program we will not heard any criticism from the americans an indication of how the americans are sticking firmly with the israeli point of view here the americans merely urging the palestinians to stay away from the fence. thank you very much where the latest there from occupied east jerusalem let's now speak to our senior political analysts are on the shower he's with me in the studio now and as you're hearing from bennett there the israelis saying that tacit is using these demonstrations as a pretext to breach israeli territory why has this protest movement been mobilized now. i think probably this is the most important question that needs to be answered and certainly the answer coming from the israeli side about greenhouses and about so with the. religious scholars issue an edict against them astray sions is
8:09 pm
probably the most ridiculous thing one could hear. money and i can think of four reasons why this is happening reason number one is the dire situation in gaza forty percent of gaza's unemployed sixty percent of its youth is unemployed it has never been more dire economically and otherwise in terms of electricity water sewerage and so on so forth the second reason is the lack of palestinian political unity on the on the part of the two major parties have mass and fatah so this is in us far as the people on concern or even the power as far as how muss is concerned it is a message to the political leadership that we need to get together that the policy in leadership needs to unite otherwise the people are going to take things to their hearts the third and probably the more important reason is the absence of any of any. solution diplomatic solution that is a breakthrough of any sort because the diplomatic. peace process is dead and the
8:10 pm
alternative presumably coming from the trump administration the so-called deal of the century threatens to obliterate completely not only the question of jerusalem as a palestinian capital but also the question of refugees and let's all remember that eighty percent of gaza are refugees last but not least the arrogance of the israeli government in dealing with the palestinians the expansion of the settlements the blockade the continuous suppression of the palestinians while at the same time the arab indifference slash conspiracy at this point in time against the palestinians or how the palestinians view it it whether. by so did those egyptian leaders american leaders that they see them behind the scenes could moving with the trump administration and the netanyahu government in order to bring about the deal of the century will briefly marwan speaking of
8:11 pm
a diplomatic solution well in terms of these protests we know that the international community has condemned them the u.n. saying that an approach towards that fence doesn't justify the the use of live ammunition but the u.s. is not openly critical of israel in fact they israel has trump's wholehearted support not only that worse prison from when he spoke to prime minister netanyahu did not even bring up the subject in their conversation as if it doesn't happen i think look i think there's a certain not only collusion but i think there's a certain complementarity between the throne and the assertion that if that netanyahu government i mean i think president from love seeing the israeli army on the southern border because he just sent their american military to the southern border with mexico look we have an american mr should that is complete the or the stick when it comes to purchasing your rights they are solidly hundred percent with bounded anthony our government and that's why looking on the long term i think the
8:12 pm
american administration and its support of the israeli occupation is partially responsible for the crimes committed by israel the sheriff thank you now the united states has impose new sanctions against russian businessmen companies and government officials including associates of president let him at present the sanctions target seven russian oligarchs and the twelve companies they own all control as well as seventeen senior russian government officials washington says that it's targeting russia's malign activities which include alleged meddling in the twenty sixteen election so it can really help it is following this for us from the white house can really tell us more about the puppets of these sanctions. well what this round of sanctions seems to be and this is the third action by the united states in as many weeks we should point out against russia this time though it seems to be targeting vladimir putin the russian president personally there are thirty eight individuals or entities that have been targeted and they include
8:13 pm
vladimir putin's personal friend oleg deripaska he's a billionaire who has founded a group that operates siberian power plants and you might remember also too he was in the headlines last year because there were some alleged links to paul matter for the chair of donald trump's presidential campaign so that is the significant name in all of this but also a lot of former southern law has been targeted as well now what is interesting in all of this is well it is intended to send a message to putin personally it appears adulterer has also said this week that he thinks a relationship with russia might be a good thing in fact the white house confirming very recently that there was a telephone call between the russian president the u.s. president where in fact an invitation was extended to let him here putin to come to washington potentially even to the white house for a meeting so we've almost got mixed messages here with these sanctions because donald trump a said no one has been tougher on russia but these actions that have taken place in
8:14 pm
recent weeks don't have the power to do this since august when rather over the summer when the u.s. congress gave him this power he reluctantly signed this into law and now we're finally seeing the manifestations of that again this is to as you pointed out address what the united states is calling russia's malign activities but many people saying this is a little confusing given some of the other messages donald trump has delivered this week as well all right thanks very much can really how can i want house correspondent just wondering you some news from syria now where thirty two people have been killed off the government as strikes hit the town of duma in eastern guta is according to search and rescue teams on the ground women and children a thought to be among the dead syrian government forces say they retaliated after a faction within the rebel group jaish al islam shelled a government held area the group denies the accusation. and watching out is there are much more still to come catalonia is for many to count as pushed him on his freed on bail out the german prosecutors only his immediate release from prison.
