attacking a bus full of m.m.a. fighters there are more later in the program. we begin on the israel gaza border where in least seven palestinians have been killed as the israeli army continues to fire live ammunition and tear gas at protesters seven hundred eighty palestinians have also been injured but several said to be in a critical condition it's a week since demonstrations first began to mark palestine's on your land day an act of resistance against israeli occupation and land seizures charlotte ballasts reports. palestinian words meet israeli bullets in gaza. from behind the border fence israeli snipers have palestinians on these sites they shooting a guest in life fire and rubber bullets. but still. reeling from their bloodiest
9:03 pm
day in years this was the area where last friday israeli snipers shot seven hundred palestinians twenty one would die. a week later they're back with a smokescreen and stretches the casualty numbers quickly climb injuries turn to faith tell us he's going to the stars they are seeing we're not bringing them for war anything we brought them to protect ourselves from israeli snipers while. the plot of starvation and seizure has failed to incite the palestinian people against the resistance gaza will not starve and will not abandon its original national objective our people have told the world the carver is free and that we will only stand tall and resist in the face of the israeli occupation. last friday's killings happened on what the palestinians called lend day it's an annual protest an act of resistance to israeli occupation and the seizure of land for
9:04 pm
illegal jewish settlements. this year israel warned that opened 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 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 trap. for the palestinian people that the hamas government is encouraging its
9:05 pm
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 campaigner 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 dallas. i'm jel hamid has been speaking to palestinian demonstrators inside gaza. i asked 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
9:06 pm
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 that is anger not only had the blockade by egypt and israel but also at the 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 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 of the grievances right to dead friends for everyone to see obviously many of them are quite i would say ambitious
9:07 pm
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. and see baden is a former israeli minister of justice he says it's not clear what the palestinians are hoping to achieve. the question of whether or not it is excessive use of power is the and i must admit that most of the israelis saying you know it is a palestinian provoke they're having their problems with egypt with their own. leadership with the studio authority they are coming close to the to the fence of we actually we do from gaza destroyed all the settlements there is true that we are still having some. elements or for ruling the area through the sky in the sea
9:08 pm
but this is not a reason to to have these demonstrations against us especially when they ask is saw or pack what actually these young people who are really suffering we all admit the suffering in the small stream which is so densely populated but what do they really want to form us if they want peace if they want negotiations we are ready to negotiate but as you know hamas is not ready to negotiate with us. so their senior political analysts are on bashara joins me now so you'll see balan saying that implying that these it's not clear what the end game is what the purpose of these protests are and actually if they wanted to improve the conditions of the lives of palestinians inside gaza then hamas would cooperate with israel so interesting that you keep saying what do they
9:09 pm
want what do they want if i remember correctly your follow up question was they want to protest i mean that's a basic right and they are within gaza they are not in israel they are within gaza they are on the other side of the fence on the other side of the wall and they don't have the right to don't want straight. hundreds of people a thousand above a thousand people shot i mean if our viewers around the world will just take a minute and think what happens how do you shoot so many young people in one day seven eight hundred people last friday and then you kill dozen or two dozen of young people protesting on the other side of the war the wire israeli soldiers are basically behind tanks behind towers behind hills of science and so forth so it's really amazing to see young generation of palestinians taking up after their fathers and forefathers it's been seventy years of more of the same those young
9:10 pm
palestinians demonstrating in gaza hail from families who come from the other side of the borders many of those palestinian villages in the negative of israel today. their villages were destroyed most of them by the israelis and no therefore testing the so-called glenday they simply want to remind the world that they remain refugees as you say marwan is a very powerful images that are coming from the area of unarmed civilians teenagers and kids being faced with with live fire but israel has made it clear that we don't want you approaching this fence we will take action to prevent anyone getting close to the fence and those that do so are endangering themselves is there a broader question here about the long term sustainability of something like this of people continuing to put themselves at risk like risk like this absolutely but that's the price that they are willing to pay and this is the price that the
9:11 pm
palestinians have long we're willing the to pay in fact the entire conflict at this point in time maria is one about the fastest unwilling or willingness to persevere i mean what are these young palestinians telling us when when when we are living the most bleak moment of palestinian history they are ready to show the world and to show themselves and their own leaders and the leaders of the arab world and certainly the leaders of israel that they are not willing to bend they are not willing to give up and i think that's what the entire struggle is all about for if we take a moment just to imagine israel and how israel became a. you know a villa of sorts built on stolen palestinian land and now the palestinians are banging on the gates this really is might enjoy the villa but the fact that the
9:12 pm
palestinians keep banging on the gate. keeps annoying the israelis for ever and briefly marwan there is there are obviously serious questions here about israel's response to these protests but more broadly speaking how much of the palestinians been failed by palestinian leadership absolutely i think one of the four reasons why these people are demonstrating and why other people demonstrated in jerusalem before the sword remember there's been many in the fathers in palestine and those in the fathers are some of them are inspired by or led by the palestinian factions some of them are actually send the message the policy of factions i think if hamas and fatah had reached a deal just so few weeks ago a few months ago probably this would not would not have happened if the israelis and palestinians reached a deal a in the peace process that allows the palestinians a fair resolution of the refugee issues on a two state solution we were never seen that happen if we were of see in a better conditions in gaza where we don't have sixty percent of the youth
9:13 pm
unemployment we were and have seen that if we would have seen a bit of less arab indifference and a bit of lists israeli arrogance we probably haven't we wouldn't have seen this thank you very much marwan bashar and i'm moving to our other top story this hour the united states has impose new sanctions against russian businessmen companies and government officials including associates of president vladimir putin sanctions target seven russian oligarchs and the twelve companies they own or control as well as seventeen senior russian government officials washington says it's targeting russia's malign activities which include alleged meddling in the twenty sixteen election russia has responded calling the sanctions a mistake and a step towards destroying freedom of business i want house correspondent kimberly how is life for us in washington now how much more aggressive in these latest measures as compared to those we've seen in the past kimberly. well the other ones
9:14 pm
that we've seen in the past and about three weeks ago were also aggressive but i think what makes these different is they seem to be directly targeting lattimer putin the russian president personally thirty eight individuals and entities that all seem to have a tie in some way either in foreign policy or business ties to vladimir putin i mean take for example the seven all of ours one of them happens to be one of the personal friends of lattimer putin it's his name is oleg deripaska he's a billionaire founder of a group that operates siberian power plants but he also made headlines last year because of his ties to donald trump's presidential campaign chair paul man of fort so there is that that is very interesting also this sanctions seem to target. putin's former son in law so there's a personal nature to these but there's also a little bit of reflection going on here in washington even around the world in terms of kind of the mixed messaging that we're getting with these sanctions very and given the fact that donald trump has certainly said that no one has been
9:15 pm
tougher on russia than he has but he's had this power to be tough on russia since last summer he's only taken it in the last three weeks this is the third targeted action in three weeks and certainly a lot of people are making note of that the fact that it took the president so long and well there is reaction from congress saying in fact that this is a good thing that sends a clear message to vladimir putin that the illegal occupation of ukraine support for assad's regime of war crimes and even efforts to undermine western democracies will not be tolerated many washington asking why it took the president so long thanks very much i want house correspondent complete that when we challenge has reaction now to these latest sanctions from moscow. well so far the response from moscow has been a mixture of indignation that the u.s. should have taken these new sanctions measures and also shrugging them off saying that it affects russia in any way certainly these newest measures from the u.s.
9:16 pm
treasury are the most personal yet striking against some of the all the guards here with the closest ties to be made putin in the kremlin people like oleg deripaska and viktor of exel but these are things that people in the west have been arguing for for some time saying that you can only affect the kremlin change its foreign policy by going after these people there is of course though a bit of a counter-argument to this that i've heard recently which is that actually going after the oligarchs with the closest ties to the kremlin will eventually strengthen the kremlin in the long run because these are people who have taken huge assets huge quantities of money out of russia and put them in safer havens like london and slight for us and other financial centers around the world so by targeting them and their assets internationally what they'll be forced to do is bring them back to
9:17 pm
russia and that is something that the kremlin has actually been trying to make happen for some time with very little success perhaps by going after these older guards and their assets the united states is actually forcing them to bring those assets back to russia and in the long run that will benefit but it's a difficult argument i don't have the answers to but have to wait and see how it pans out. in all the developments the former russian spy at the center of a diplomatic route between the u.k. and russia is no longer in a critical condition doctors say sergey scruples health is improving a month after he and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent in southern england person blamed russia for the attack but moscow denies involvement meanwhile the u.k. foreign office has confirmed niece has been denied a visa to come to britain she was planning to take stargaze daughter yulia back to russia with the news hour live from london much more still to come a right wing nationalist versus a liberal u.s. based billionaire it will become hungary's next president on sunday catalonia is

minder of the top stories this hour at least eight people have been killed and hundreds injured after israeli security forces fired live ammunition at palestinians protesting at the gaza border. the united states has announced new sanctions against russian businessman companies and government officials close to president vladimir putin. and the former south african president jacob zuma has appeared in court to face corruption charges relating to a two and a half billion dollar stale. or not top story now the ongoing violence on the gaza palestine border joining me now from tel aviv is of oppenheimer he is a board member of peace now
9:34 pm
a non-government organization in israel thanks very much for speaking to us how would you describe the developments today what we saw today and particularly was there any shift in these raney response compared to last week. in the evening when we see the numbers of casualties first of all it's very said in a finger to eight people to close the life and hundreds of people to whom the is a very. bad outcome of this demonstration however if we compare it to list week we see the decline in the number of casualties in a less strict we had twenty two palestinian being killed by live any mission this time it's less than half that so it's better and i think today's an effect on these really really give a minute of the criticism from the international community but also from these early peace not to use. live bullets against civilians against people that are
9:35 pm
going to the most to demonstrate against the siege of gaza i think that we see a better result it's still a bad very negative i think we can we can handle this demonstration israel can handle this demonstration with a much lower number of casualties casualties but it's better than what we saw last weekend and the difference in the casualties but still we saw palestinians killed in the demonstration today israel is saying that its response is in line with long established rules of engagement that's not likely to change is it. i think that eventually one palestinian would like to break the fence and to break their border into get into is where the army eventually has no option but to act because no country can allow people to get into its property especially in this whole study environment and there is
9:36 pm
a real risk for the safety of the soldiers and these are the civilians if the border will be open and people will be able to cross over and then to create some kind of attack so we cannot dismiss it however this is not an open check these were the army cannot shoot live and you mean bullets against civilians especially when they are not armed and i think that what we saw unless trick was unacceptable in any way this week at least the numbers are smaller so it's better a but still they easily i mean has much more tools to stop palestinian from getting into israel proper but using. materials and not just live in the mission over the demonstration the demonstration what about what about you guys only and that have been killed you had seven today but many more last week in the line of calling for an independent and transparent investigation is that going to be an inquiry
9:37 pm
into the civilian deaths. we saw these early press the army's inquiry vent say or in there was criticism from inside these really peacekeeper about the dominion inquiry i don't see any international inquiry over this kind of for events i don't see the un really establishing a new goldstone. committee that will come to do there i doubt it but i do think that the pressure from outside is creating an effect on these really really government and israelis taking it into consideration we cannot allow ourselves to see every weekend these. days and people that are losing their lives and i hold these really are we will do much better next trick trying not to use a live bullets only if it's a moment in which jews are really risk for the security and the safety of the
9:38 pm
soldiers not even one second before thank you very much from tel aviv you are of oppenheimer. supporters of former brazilian president it is silva rallying in his hometown as his lawyers insist appeal his arrest warrant ula spent the night at the headquarters of the steelworkers union in the town of south they're not at the camp so says within his workers party say he will not turn himself into police as ordered by the judge to convicted him to twelve years in prison for corruption. u.s. president donald trump says he may impose another one hundred billion dollars in tax on chinese imports after already increasing tax on chinese steel and other goods this is the latest measure in a trade standoff between the two countries china meanwhile says it doesn't want a trade war but is ready to fight trump's policies at any cost president trying to find global trade doesn't benefit the united states. in many respects i think we're going to have a fantastic relationship long term with china but we have to get this straightened
9:39 pm
out we have to have some balance and that goes for other countries and it goes for other places if you look at the european union it's very solidly against us in terms of trade it's very unfair look at a younger shaking her head yes you know about the european union it's like it's almost we can't even do business they send their cars over here they said everything over here we don't want to take our product. so we can't let that happen adrian brown has the latest on this now from beijing well within hours of president trump effectively threatening a third round of tariffs against china the response from beijing was angry and swift president trump said he'd asked his trade representative to determine whether one hundred billion dollars worth of further tariffs were warranted and if so where those tariffs should be applied well a few hours later a statement appeared on the website of china's commerce ministry and it warned that china was ready to pay any cost in any trade war with the united states and its
9:40 pm
spokesman went even further who warming far if the insist on unilaterally ism and the trade protectionism against the wishes of china and the international community we will fight to the death at any cost we will resolutely fight back and take new measures and protect the interests of our country and the people well just a day ago of course the united states had sought to try to lower the temperature with china saying the threat of more tariffs was simply the next step in the negotiating process now we are back to the brinkmanship on friday china's state media which of course is controlled by the communist party sought to portray china as the victim saying trump was simply trying to stop china's rise and the media had another blunt message china doesn't do surrender. a mexican politician is accuse the u.s. president of using central american migrants as propaganda donald trump is described
