4:03 pm
road of suffering in order to portray the reality for an oppressed people a frustrated people under siege in gaza and all across palestine but it's the image of dignity for a proud people a brave people straightforward people brave able to turn the table in the hardest of times. well who joins us now live now from a hospital in gaza harder so we know that the hospitals there are struggling to cope with just the sheer numbers of palestinians injured and killed in these clashes what more can you tell us well yes they are struggling and it's not just a short sheer number of ruined it is also the fact that they sort of all arrived in a very short span of time now the health authorities here in gaza have declared a state of emergency all the health system of they are lacking about absolutely everything in the running out of whatever is left now under normal circumstances
4:04 pm
you have to bear in mind that the health system already faces georges nearly forty five percent of drugs are missing a third of the equipment is missing that has become much worse than the world has organization says that it needs urgently these two million dollars worth of drugs and disposable to come into this trip as soon as possible now everything comes through the crossings and is monitored by israel however does cross that crossing has been closed for the past week because of the jewish holiday the past passover it should reopen tomorrow however people say every speak to say they are not expecting to get all what they can and they are actually appealing to the international community to put pressure on getting there and order just tell us a bit more about how the health system in gaza actually works. well the whole system in gaza actually depends on both the palestinian authority and israel the
4:05 pm
first step is that whatever is needed the list of what is needed is submitted to the palestinian authority in ramallah they are the ones that will purchase always this patch to goods once that is done they will have to ask israel for permission and to coordinate with israel for dad all these goods to come into the gaza strip is a very lengthy procedures they don't get all what they want and also we spoke to some medical staff here and they say it also depends on what is going on politically now certainly the problems between for the hand how mass will make that easy medical staff say here than lack of national reconciliation is having a direct impact not only on the health system but also on the patients because many of the patients need to go elsewhere to go elsewhere to get treatment specially those who are suffering incredible lose these days they either the have the choice
4:06 pm
of either going for example to the to the occupied west bank to the hospitals there that are better equipped or they can try to cross through the of rafah border crossing with egypt and that is further complicated because of all these checkpoints because of the closure of the gaza strip is a very complicated situation and the medical staff is very worried because we're just in week two of this six weeks long protest that is going to last until may fifteenth all right ahead of the army then gaza hala thank you. well let's talk to ben wyatt she's a journalist with the middle east monitor and author of the book palestinians in israel segregation discrimination and democracy he joins us now from london ben why the journalist who was shot and killed yesterday yes a mortar gear was a well known palestinian figure he was apparently wearing a blue flak jacket clearly marked with the words press how the israelis lied to justify his death then. you know what it means as of now it's been more or less
4:07 pm
twenty four hours since the us that was shot by an israeli soldier and the israeli military still hasn't come out with an official statement which suggests that they're struggling to come up with a justification or explanation that they think is fit for international consumption i mean this there's two possibilities are number one he was shot deliberately and we should remember of course that last saturday the israeli army spokesperson the i.d.f. spokesperson on twitter tweeted and then subsequently deleted a claim that the army all the shots fired by the army were accurate and they knew where every bullet landed and as you pointed out yes there was shots clearly identified as press at least one hundred i've seen some estimates of three hundred meters away from the perimeter fence of the gaza strip so one possibility is that he was shot deliberately and we should remember and viewers should remember that the israeli army routinely targets palestinian journalists for arrest detention closes down radio studios in the context the gaza strip on previous occasions has
4:08 pm
bombed media outlets and is justified these kinds of policies and attacks in terms of targeting quote unquote incitement to terrorist media because the other possibility is that yes it was shot accidentally in terms of him not being the intended target of that specific soldier's bullet but then that completely undermines the israeli army's talking points with the last eight days of bloodshed and as you say it's going to be just to finish that point you know as yeah yeah i mean it's going to say this this would be the first time as you say that israeli forces have shot and killed journalists as they haven't been any accountability for these deaths. right now exactly so i think i was just about to say was that you know if it was an accident as it were then the army is firing admitting that it's firing live ammunition into unarmed civilian protesters without knowing who it's now as you point out or as you asked about the question of impunity or accountability i think one of. the main reasons why we've seen so many on on
4:09 pm
palestinian civilian protesters killed and maimed over the last eight days is because there is systematic impunity in the israeli military israeli soldiers who sadly abundant i believe routinely shoot palestinian civilians in both york by the west bank and the gaza strip do not face consequences for their actions and together with open fire regulations that human rights groups like human rights watch and amnesty international have all condemned as illegal with respect to international law the combination of those very loose and illegal open fire regulations plus a culture of systematic impunity means that you have trigger happy soldiers who know they will not face consequences and not just trigger happy soldiers israeli soldiers who are following orders from political officials and from military officials remember that at the end of yesterday senior israeli military figures and they proudly tweeted about this too said they were happy with the conduct of the soldiers of the soldiers on the gaza strip or into things yesterday that was off the nine civilians have been killed including us or ben white thank you for talking
4:10 pm
to al jazeera now while the demonstrations in gaza are inspiring more people to protest it's also reminding palestinians of previous struggles reports from the occupied west bank in gaza palestinian demonstrators did what they could to frustrate israeli security forces. burning tires to obscure the view of soldiers using mirrors in an attempt to blind snipers tactics that reminded many of an earlier era of resistance and i'm so proud of the fact that now. groups including hamas jihad felt that everybody i don't think this approach of peaceful nonviolent resistance which has proven to be the most effective way of dealing with patients with dealing with it is that a little bit i should of the palestinian people and this definitively brings us back to thirty principles. said for the lion said for going to sion and defiance of . these exactly where the three principles that govern the feds. and that led to
4:11 pm
changing the balance of power. in the first intifada which began in december one thousand nine hundred seven marked the first time that palestinians from all parts of society began such an intense resistance to israeli occupation. in the beginning boys threw rocks and people marched later fighters began attacking israeli soldiers and military targets it ended in one thousand nine hundred three and by the time it was over more than one thousand one hundred people had died tires were also burned in the occupied west bank just outside the illegal israeli settlement of beit del where a small crowd of palestinian protesters gathered throughout the day it was a game of cat and mouse that has become almost a regular occurrence on fridays after prayer incoming tear gas from israeli security forces would force them to run only to return a short time later hurling rocks despite calls by palestinian political factions
4:12 pm
for residents of the occupied west bank to come out and protest today attendance at the demonstrations was relatively low which really underscores a growing like a faith and palestinian political leadership activists say palestinian officials need more than ever to build trust one of the main things is just like to show them our old men honestly away from the situation to to executive people what are we can go out of the situation to see to people who want to see an end to twenty five years of useless. but hectic negotiations that has been in the dust of the situation while officials may be disappointed at the dearth of demonstrators outside gaza they also feel their message this time will resonate with the international community what helps us a lot is the social media that ability of young palestinians through social media and put on summit to the world. actually. objectivity ality on the ground the fact that israel is a ruthlessly shooting civilians shooting peaceful demonstrate that this is
4:13 pm
unacceptable the expectations are high the great march of return will inspire more unity for the moment at least there is a small semblance of hope that seems to be rising above the usual political divisions mohammed atta and a mullah in the occupied west bank. dozens of civilians including children have been killed in the syrian government as strikes on the rebel held city of duma the raids ended a ceasefire last of almost two weeks the government defended the attack saying it was in response to rebels killing civilians in neighboring damascus. the skies over doomer had been quiet for two weeks until friday residents counted more than fifty airstrikes and say twenty barrel bombs were dropped on the city. it continued through dusk and into saturday. syrian state you said the assault was in retaliation for jaish al islam or the army of islam shelling residential

not brazil's former president lula da silva is expected to hunt himself over to police in the next few hours but first he's attending a mass in sao paolo hundreds of supporters are joining him there he's then lucky to surrender to begin a twelve year jail term for corruption luna was supposed to him self in on friday when it still to daniel the event and joins us live daniel so just bring us up to date with the latest where you are there at the last. line in sound but now though it's a town. outside of south powell all of this building behind me is the metal workers union headquarters very much the heartland of his ways workers party he's in that building waiting for the mass to begin the masses in commemoration of his wife who died last year today would have been had sixty a birthday she was a very popular figure out within the workers party and that crossed brazil he's
4:17 pm
been negotiating you know like you mentioned he should have turned himself in yesterday and since been negotiating in that building with official word from the prosecutor's all base about the terms of the surrender they will then when that happens take him down to the southern city of port a kiba that. where the arrest warrant was issued. the special specially prepared jail cell is waiting for him such as the twelve years i was in prison on corruption charges. to learn his many supporters defied the oath or it is for as long as they could hear the metal workers union headquarters in sao paolo he missed the deadline to hand him self into the authorities he and his supporters maintaining his innocence of the corruption charges leveled against him. here we are here we are with the world looking at us everyone is accompanying us closely closely monitoring the
4:18 pm
situation that threatens our democracy. but lose options of run outs his legal team is exhausted all appeals he will attend the ceremony the birthday of his late wife and more trouble for the southern city of. the special jail cell awaits him to brazil is a country very much divided with many here believing that justice will only be done if his twelve year is a one month sentence many of those feel that he's the victim of a political prosecution to stop him running in october's presidential elections elections they fail he would almost certainly win. support for lula has also come from abroad from the left wing politicians in office across latin america what he led in two thousand and three to two thousand and. eight is an absurd trial that they have done to lula they have condemned him without any proof and the reality of what they're doing is outlawing the greatest political leader from being president
4:19 pm
. however many in brazil celebrating what they see is justice being done that even the once mighty must pay for their crimes. i came here just so i could see close up when these corrupt men lulac goes to prison. guilty or innocent for him or against him the sight of lula being taken to prison is still one that will shake brazil. you can see there's a few hundred people behind me outside the metalworkers said paul wood says that this was a president when he saw from two thousand and three to two thousand and ten he used to attract crowds of hundreds of thousands of people across brazil was an icon of the political left right across latin america there's been very little reaction to this arrest of the muted isolated incidents around the country they don't see but the brazilians. disillusioned with all the politicians right across the political

4:22 pm
the threat of extradition still hangs over his head not on the charges of rebellion the charge of rebellion that a german court has ruled does not have an equivalent in germany so he can't be extradited for that but the charge of embezzle amount of the funds it took to finance that referendum the spanish believe was unconstitutional all that potential charge is something he could still be extradited upon that is something we will see much more discussed in the days weeks and months to come russia's foreign ministry is promising to respond firmly to a new u.s. sanctions targeting president vladimir putin's inner circle the white house says the sanctions are a sponsor to hostile actions our white house correspondent can be held at reports. for weeks relations between the united states and russia have been deteriorating but this time for russian president vladimir putin it's personal and friday the administration of u.s. president donald trump announced its third action in as many weeks against key

4:32 pm
fighters aren't so sure. we worry about fighting on happening again at any moment so we have to keep our soldiers prepared how can we trust me and large government and military everyone in the world knows about them and even their own citizens can't trust them one of the main problems is that the government led by state council our own son suchi doesn't have control over its own military the army ran the country for almost fifty years and is still the most powerful body in me and mob the relationship between the civilian government and the military is not good a source connected to the army has told al jazeera that has to be resolved before peace talks with rebels can make progress so far the myanmar government has held two peace conferences with rebel groups there's also a so-called nationwide cease fire agreement in place so-called because there are still many groups that haven't signed that deal among those that have these guys the qur'an national liberation army and yet fighting continues as this footage shot
4:33 pm
by a korean fighter last month shows the cease fire agreement isn't holding. as always it's civilians who suffer the most with almost one hundred thousand refugees living in camps across the border in thailand. we want to go home but we don't dare because the ceasefire agreement hasn't brought peace we cannot trust the seas are. in the meantime soldiers in rebel areas a holding their ground like they have for decades the most experienced fighters never believed the armed struggle would still be going but. we have fought against them for so many years so we know that myanmar will not give us equality easily not only the karen but other ethnicities too so we have to fight for our rights but if we cannot make peace in our time it will be up to the next generation. for rebel armies disbanding permanently seems a long way off as many in this divided country continue to head in different
4:34 pm
directions when hey al-jazeera korean state me and my. now japan has deployed its first marine unit since world war two the two thousand strong arm fifty s rapid deployment brigade will defend the country's remote islands along the east china sea it's meant to counter possible attacks from china which is outpacing japan in its defense spending. donald trump has signed a memorandum telling agencies to end the practice known as catch and release the policy allows immigrants caught in the u.s. without proper documents to be released while their immigration cases play out in the courts or not trump is asking the defense department from listed military facilities where the undocumented immigrants can be held. colombia has started to register all of the venezuelans and to the country without documents the u.n. is helping with the ambitious project it's hope it will help the massive number of people who fled venezuela's economic crisis from picher reports from the border
4:35 pm
town of kuta. catulus and his family have been living in colombia for three months illegally a lack of medicine and food for their three year old daughter rosie left him no choice but to leave venezuela when they heard the colombian government was registering migrants in the country without the threat of death or taishan they wanted to be first in line. but we saw it as an opportunity hoping it will bring us benefit in the future they asked for all their personal information and about her health condition and of the baby in particular massive numbers of desperate venezuelans have arrived in the past year. he say they could number more than half a million but there's no exact figure that's why it launched the registration look at the name of just give me the money them so much if you want to know how many migrants there are and in what condition so we can measure what services we can offer and estimate costs because it's very expensive the basics are health and education services so the colombian government has set up more than five hundred
4:36 pm
registration points like this one across the country they will operate for the next two months this is a major humanitarian emergency especially for a country that has never before had to deal with such a massive influx of migrants the united nations is assisting in says colombia can't be left alone to deal with the. exodus now you've got the arrival of the venezuelan population is a regional issue it's not only colombian so it's time to start a more coordinated effort across latin america and hopefully this can be the first step colombian police and soldiers have been deployed to support the effort. those being counted include mothers with small children some of the women are pregnant with no money for a room many sleep on the street you know i don't you know we are all just here hoping to work to help ourselves and those back home hopefully this will help
4:37 pm
formalize your situation i'm pregnant she's got five children they're all hungry and cold at night the colombian government has made it more difficult for venezuelans to cross the border but we know when the insight to the troubles in the country faming the flow is just one challenge for these and the people caught up in the crisis alison there. are. hundreds of extra police officers will be on patrol in the streets of london this weekend to cope with a rise in violent crime there's been a dramatic increase in the number of murders in the capital more than fifty said father see it for the first time ever the murder rate in london was higher than new york for the month of february and march we have not lost control of the street so i can understand why some people are very worried at the moment. and particularly in some areas of london we've had some ghastly homicides as you know i've taken in the last few days including those and really young people that is bound to be very
4:38 pm
frightened. let's talk to us on a gun talk is a professor of criminology at the university of east london and joins us live now this isn't the first time we've seen a spike in london crime but why has this week receive so much attention in the media do you think. i think because the think the propensity over to the intensity it's really increased because of social media and i think these young people are putting things on line and i think they almost getting a great deal of satisfaction from their own notoriety the media attention as well and london's police commissioner says her officers have not lost control of the streets but what is behind this level of violence and murders is it gang related or drugs or something else. i think it is a combination of things i think the police have basically taken that i have to pull alongside the government national government they have been focusing on chasing gangs for the past seven or eight years where this violence can be very petty can
4:39 pm
be very trivial and it's not necessarily linked to gangs these young people who decide they want to take the law into their own hands over very minor dispute sometimes and the mayor of london so he can has been conspicuously quiet in recent days but he's now pushing for targeted stop and searches by the police i mean this is a very controversial act in london isn't it. it's very controversial very counterproductive and in fact because of stop and search why young people feel the need to protect themselves with knives in the first place and guns because they don't have any faith in the police because the police have used this tactic disproportionately and unfairly on many different underdeveloped years so it's not going to work it's not helpful it's going backwards i believe so let's just go back to this plan meant to put an extra three hundred police on the streets of london this weekend is that too little too late or will it make any difference. this is not a policing issue you know this is about how public health issue about violent crime
4:40 pm
not just about got a knife on it but also domestic violence sexual violence england is going through a serious spike in violent crime we've seen burglars who ended up and dying because of a knife incident you know not related of course domestic violence people you know every day are been victims of domestic violence so we need to get a handle on this and say as a society what are we doing to say we need to do health services education about ensuring that our that people do not take the law into their own hands over to petty disputes i think the real main issue for me because i'm going to thank you very much for talking to al jazeera. you're welcome now farmers in the u.k. are worried about how they will make money once britain leaves the european union next year well they rely on tens of thousands of workers from abroad and billions of dollars from the e.u. to keep up production and the hayward has more from leicestershire. after
