friday of palestinian demonstrations the protesters are demanding the right of return for refugees at least forty one people have been killed over the past few weeks let's take you there live now i was there a stephanie deca is at the on the gaza israel border stephanie what's happening than now. well it's still pretty quiet this is as it usually unfolds adrian more crowds will call just after three o'clock so just about an hour from now there have been arrival of some of the youths rolling tires and this is what they do i'll just step out a shot and that marshal you the actual sort of fence area they will burn those tires along the fence so to obscure the sniper positions you can probably see one of those positions and then what you have is some of the youth at the moment just sitting quietly on the ground very close to the fence this is the last friday before the naacp as you mentioned seventy years of the establishment of the state of israel palestinians call that the catastrophe and it what is interesting is that
2:03 pm
it's a lot of the youth here of course eleven years under blockade of gaza but the people here will tell you that they have not forgotten what happened to their grandfathers to their forethought fathers which is being kicked off their land so that's the main theme really of these protests that we've seen going on friday off to friday it is put immense pressure on israel agent what's happening in this area behind us what israel calls a so-called buffer zone as you mentioned there at least forty one killed a lot of those by law a far we've seen one boy this morning while a youth around twenty years old shot in the leg when he was very close to that fence by sniper fire so certainly we understand also from sources that there are negotiations happening under the table between the authorities here between some european countries and also indirectly with israel things like being discussed we hear allowing eight hours of electricity into gaza at the moment that's four hours a day if sporadic some form of prisoner exchange all these kinds of details are
2:04 pm
being ironed out but it goes to show that there is real pressure when you see thousands and thousands of are unarmed protesters up against that fence with israel so we'll have to wait and see what happens because those negotiations are expected what they want is for these protests the protests to lessen but certainly at the moment they're very much going on as planned all right stuff. many thanks indeed al-jazeera staff decker there live on the gaza israel border a report by save the children says that hundreds of children in gaza have been injured by israeli gunfire during the recent protests it cites figures from the palestinian ministry of health and says that at least two hundred fifty children have been hit by live ammunition it found that more than eight thousand palestinians have been injured since the protests began in march including seven hundred children it also concludes that more than two thousand people have been treated in hospital for bullet wounds joining us in the studio troops wherry who is associate professor in contemporary history of the middle east at university always
2:05 pm
good to talk to you but what do you make of the figures in that report i think this is this is very scary figure this shows how much this confronting this kind of level of force used by israelis was serious and basically the number of casualties now with more than a thousand in the number of the kids who are based on the don't want to fit the nearly seven hundred so this tells you how much was is really. losing any kind of control by israelis i think this this news international community to intervene i mean that the use of live ammunition across a border fence is inexcusable against unarmed people one has to ask the question what are kids doing at these protests in the first place and then the video these are these are a protest basically as we as we know started seven weeks ago are under the you know the one slogan which basically maintaining the right for return for palestinians and this is i think the presence of the children there is part of this mobilization
2:06 pm
none of those and i think it was expected we saw this in previous thing was bank other places even not only and as i think the question mark is you know what what does israel you know doing with all of these using womanish and and what this will be the impact of preventing the was seven rick. did not the prevent people to stand on the other we're in the other side of. that border they're on the try and they continue to do this i think there is a serious demand to have a third party to intervene to reduce that level of tension it's israel under pressure here i think so i think israel is now the artist you know they have a front now when with a good man and they have another front with as there is a lot of criticism from international community about what they are doing in gaza i think they are under political pressure but it depends how much this political. pressure you know can we i would say what is the level of force they can use all the level of political. pressure israeli in the future as you said it's been it's
2:07 pm
been seven weeks of demonstrations now and the next week of course the anniversary of nakba the just the catastrophe i mean what what sort of demonstration we agree i think it's because it's actually more people and more sort of mobilization which already started this week i think even they are worried about what will happen in this friday as well ok good still always a much many thanks indeed iran's foreign ministry has responded to israel's biggest attacks in syria for decades a spokesman described wednesday night strikes on dozens of targets as an illegal act of aggression based on a fabricated excuse israel's prime minister hasn't ruled out for their action he maintains that iranian forces in syria have fired rockets at israeli positions in the occupied golan heights russia is leading global calls for deescalation but iran's foreign minister will travel to moscow for talks on monday more now from al-jazeera zain bus ravi in tehran. two days after the incident in question the
2:08 pm
foreign ministry of iran has issued a statement strongly condemning israeli incursions into syria calling it a violation of international law violation of israeli sovereignty and criticizing the global community silence over israel's illegal actions iranian the iranian foreign ministry statement also said that syria has a right to defend itself and lay blame on israel for supporting armed groups that are trying to destabilize syria the allegation coming from iran is a common one that israel is part of its strategic depth supports groups like groups like the islamic state and illness or fronts but what was said is as important as what wasn't said no specific mention about israeli allegations that iran shot first that it is to blame for this cross border. fighting that has happened and no specific reference to the allegation by israel that it was iran that lost enormous strategic assets inside syria now moving on the government will be trying on friday
2:09 pm
to shift focus back to the twenty fifteen nuclear deal foreign minister zarif will be meeting with counterparts later this week from china and russia then on words to europe in an effort to try to save what little they can of the twenty fifty nuclear agreement that the united states pulled out of earlier this week and here into her on friday a nationwide call for anti u.s. demonstrations following friday prayers we are expecting to see large numbers of anti u.s. demonstrators out on the streets of you know from how to solve a professor of political science at the university of tehran who says that israel is trying to undermine regional security. it's a very dangerous game and no there's no question that it's going to escalate the tensions in the region nevertheless what i think is i think israel is trying to put you on in the united states on a path of confrontation and i think they have been successful in the past year especially with donald trump with drawing from the deal we have to understand that the nuclear deal was a major cornerstone of wrong government and it's really going to hurt ronnie's
2:10 pm
government domestically and it's going to help the conservatives it's very disappointing in the sense that if you look at history iran has not attacked any country in over two hundred years whereas israel has been in a major war every decade since the one nine hundred forty s. they're also the only country in the region that have nuclear weapons or not even a member of the n.p.t. brazil iran is a member of the n.p.t. in according to the i.a.e.a. has been completely obliging by the deal since it was signed so i think there is a lot of frustration disappointment even anger but perhaps not a lot of surprise because donald trump has been against this deal even since the campaign european leaders continue to try to save the iran nuclear deal after the u.s. announced that it was withdrawing from the twenty fifteen packs france's foreign minister said that his country will resist hewas sanctions against iraq now that.
2:11 pm
it's high time for europe to move from words to actions in terms of economic sovereignty its hard time it develops the same instruments that the u.s. has to defend its economic interests. this time tomorrow iraqis will be voting in the first parliamentary election since the defeat of i saw last year the first group of people to vote have already done so the members of the security forces will be working to protect polling stations on election day it's the fourth election since the u.s. u.s. led invasion removed saddam hussein from power fifteen years ago but in parts of iraq. people who were forced from their homes in the fight against eisel a struggling to recover their cautious but hopeful that this election may bring change reports from a refugee camp in northern iraq. mohamad schuchat and his family fled mosul in june last year during the battle against leisel their home was destroyed like many of
2:12 pm
the two million people in iraq displaced by violence in recent years they live in a camp for the internally displaced yes we are asking politicians to look after everyone equally regardless where they are from and especially those living in camps we don't want charity we want to go home and we don't want money in return for our votes the iraqi government says one hundred sixty six polling stations are being set up in seventy camps in time for saturday's parliamentary election campaign cheaps say candidates from a number of parties have visited but apart from the post there's little sign of election campaigning. only around twenty five families of the one thousand three hundred fifty living in this camp have returned to the areas they fled during the battle against. the vast majority of the people here a sudanese and their homes have been completely destroyed when you speak to people here many of them say that even if they could return to the areas they lived in
2:13 pm
they have very little faith in politicians because they feel so let down and discriminated against by previous shia led government. the government says it's going to cost two billion dollars to rebuild mosul forty thousand homes were destroyed in the west of the city alone. every few days people who used to live there gather in the camps to collect food handouts. tell us that when eisel took control of mosul in two thousand and fourteen many among the city's predominantly sunni population believed eisel may improve their lives to what they describe as so many broken promises by the government but they say that quickly changed when they began to experience the brutality of life. fled the fighting in mosul in july last year she blames the government. and the
2:14 pm
suffering she and her family enjoy in the camps what to do not. only want to go home it's inhumane living here the other day it rained in our tent flooded only after to rebuild their homes this is the least of all human rights it's the fault of the government that brought this calamity on us. winning the trust of mosul sunni population is going to be a major challenge for the new government if it is to prevent iraq's sectarian divide getting wider. and hundreds of thousands of people like him the first step towards winning that trust would be rebuilding their home so they can start rebuilding their lives. malaysia's new prime minister says that the king has agreed to part in the jailed opposition figure and why bring him here mohammed has also promised to reveal his
