8:03 pm
regenerating my deep concerns about the risks of the current impasse and stressed the need to avoid the situation spiraling out of control well let's go live now to the united nations and al-jazeera as mike hanna who's been listening in to that whole debate mike some of the key players have been speaking what sort of things you've been hearing well so it's what we've been hearing throughout this week of this the fourth emergency session on syria held in the past week alone once again the to and fro between russia and the u.s. in particular allegations being thrown across the counsel table the u.s. absolutely adamant that russia must accept responsibility for what is happening in syria as a guarantor of the fact that there were allegedly no chemical weapons within syria as to the issue of action by the u.s. and its allies this is what the u.s. ambassador had to say our president has not yet made a decision about possible actions in syria but should the united states and our
8:04 pm
allies decide to act in syria it will be in defense of a principle on which we all agree it will be in defense of a varied rock international norm that benefits all nations. let's be clear assad's most recent use of poison gas against the people of duma was not his first second third or even forty night use of chemical weapons the united states estimates that assad has used chemical weapons in the syrian war at least fifty times well and from the russian ambassador at the mill you're afraid in that there was no chemical attack at that syria was not responsible even if there was an attack this is what he had to say the slogan that but there is doña that when you there is no credible confirmation of this our
8:05 pm
specialists are no traces of toxic substances the residents of duma know nothing about such attack all information about has been provided by anti-government forces who have an interest in such a development of events we have waited justification to believe and information to believe that what took place was a provocation with the participation of certain countries intelligence services would. and certainly a touch of confusion creeping into this ongoing argument with a russian general a senior russian general alleging that yes there was a chemical attack he said but it was not carried out by syria he maintains he quotes witnesses as saying that britain was in some way behind the attack the british ambassador has reacted very very strongly to this calling the allegation bizarre and reiterating that this was pure russian propaganda saying that britain has had no involvement and would never had any involvement in any form of the use of
8:06 pm
a chemical weapons at my kind ally from us from the united nations will join me in the studio is out as a senior political analyst now in the shower i think many people include myself being waking up in these last few days since president made that initial a very bullish remark about missiles thinking maybe that it's happened overnight to get a sense that they've now there must would during a bit the pulling back a bit from that threat and really having second thoughts about it absolutely absolutely despite all attempts by the halley and others to say well we never actually said that we were going to attack and that in fact and i'm not sure why she said as a mother of two a wife or veteran. i appreciate president drum not rushing to war certainly they're really trying retroactively now to say that. you know the twitter world is one thing the real world is of course a whole other thing and the president can tweet whatever he wants to do seven am
8:07 pm
but by seven pm there is of course a different considerations to be taken and certainly what seems to be from the vivarium meeting of the you at the u.s. or at the white house national security council is that. just general mattis the secretary of defense have been quite reluctant in america rushing to war certainly america rushing to war without strategy and america rushing into war without the allies that would be my next question what is if they do rush to war if they do eventually with the international pressure seeming to be building from france from the u.k. as well as america what did they actually look at beyond the strikes are they looking at regime change are they looking at something to change things and you know demonstrably this is the thing i mean from the french we hear that they want to talk to the russians about the future of syria from the british we're talking about probable responsibility by the syrian regime. in the united states
8:08 pm
there's lots of talk about the absence of strategy that there is talk of bombarding the upholding of the ban on the use of chemical weapons but that this is not part of a global strategy about what next for syria that's why that truck there is keep saying this is going to be a repeat of the two thousand and seventeen response to the use of chemical weapons which means it's going to lead to nothing or other say and this is a very interesting theory is that in fact this might lead the syrian regime and its russian and iranian backers to ticket you know an x. or not against opposition against the syrian people that they will use the the attack on syria in order for them to further expand their repression or repressions and will barmen of the syrian population so annoyed we really don't see light in
8:09 pm
the end of the thermal even if there is a military just quickly i notice there has been the need to have to necessarily iris as responded today friday saying present time your tweets do not scare a syria iran russia it sounds like they will still singing as a group of biasing and. any separation between these three powers not there's one bargain visible bar month we're going to see them corliss together and certainly the russian umbrella that interest everyone i think everyone should be afraid if the united states britain and france starts a bombarding a a list once again if it's spring break like back in two thousand and seventeen but if there is something more meaningful or think your future everyone should worry i think the interesting thing just quickly is really to see what's ever happening now leading to something more interesting for the syrian people that have suffered a lot over the last seven years they're going to get your thoughts a mile in the shower thank you for joining us gaza's health ministry says one palestinian has been killed and more than seven hundred fifty others have been

8:11 pm
during the course of the day and we've seen dozens of injuries the gunshot wounds that we've seen have largely been to the lower limbs again that is very much the israeli policy that we've seen throughout the last three weeks they had threatened to continue to use live fire against protesters and they made good on that threat throughout the course of the day israeli military has also been broadcasting images of what it says are people trying to breach the border fence at various locations throwing what they say are improvised explosive devices towards israeli soldiers but the organizers of these protests maintain and some of the evidence that we've seen today suggest that these are still largely overwhelmingly peaceful protests there have been young children families coming here and that the people who have been approaching the border have gone unarmed as they did so the organizers say that this will continue until the middle of may marking the seventieth anniversary of the creation of the state of israel what palestinians call nakba the catastrophe . since a calm day on al-jazeera pakistan's former prime minister now is shareef is banned
