a two state solution it was promised our lives would be so much better no one can accept living in this siege there was no light at the end of the tunnel. there was a constant volley of tear gas and other established pattern now israeli soldiers firing close to the fence and right to the back of the crowds this is what we've been seeing happening for the last a couple of hours a lot of tear gas. being flown. into the crowd and then do you think they are picking it up and throwing it back towards the feds that young people here are frustrated they have spent eleven years growing up under an israeli and egyptian siege they say they feel suffocated there are no jobs unemployment is over sixty percent that's the highest rate in the world. look at me when there was a lot of the in what i want to. believe that we besieged in gaza by everyone including the arab countries we palestinians especially here in gaza we want our
3:04 am
rights and need our rights just like the rest of the world we just want to be known as better than us we deserve a good life too much of course has a lot of anonymous us in the fish. throughout the day a steady stream of injuries we counted several gunshot wounds to the lower part of the body the crowds appear smaller this friday everyone is preparing for monday one protester planned to mark a palestinian school the nakba or catastrophe the seventieth anniversary of the creation of the state of israel which displaced hundreds of thousands of palestinians from their homes it also coincides with the u.s. embassy's move to jerusalem we ask what will happen shall i love you on the fourteenth of may will be a surprise we're preparing a lot of surprises for israel you will see them on may the fourteenth. no one is sure exactly what will happen but from everyone we've spoken to palestinians are determined to come out in huge numbers stephanie decker al jazeera east gaza

protests have been held in other countries in solidarity with the palestinians in turkey crowds demonstrated in istanbul against u.s. presidents donald trump's recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital the u.s. embassy in israel will officially moved in next week. huh. and tens of thousands of indonesians gathered in jakarta to also condemn america's embassy move to jerusalem they called on muslims around the world to increase their support for palestinians and by called products from israel and the us. a prominent iranian cleric has threatened the destruction of two israeli cities following the worst faceoff to date between the two countries over syria hourly on thursday morning israel fired dozens of missiles of what it alleged what iranian positions in syria it says it was responding to an iranian attack on its troops in the golan heights which iran vehemently denies from took on zimbabwe reports
3:06 am
was in perhaps the harshest words so far a senior iranian cleric said israeli cities face destruction if that country continues to act quote foolishly the during a friday sermon a to her own university ayatollah cut to me had this warning after strikes on what israel says were iranian targets in syria not in august we will expand our missile capabilities despite western pressure to kid it to let israel know that if it acts foolishly tell of even hateful will be totally destroyed ca to me is part of the council of experts an eighty eight member body that elects iran's supreme leader he's also a political hard liner and has been a harsh critic of the two thousand and fifteen iran nuclear deal he gave his views on the u.s. pullout from that agreement empty because i don't think america cannot do a damn thing they have always been after toppling of iran's regime and they
3:07 am
segregate is in line with that aim these european signatories also cannot be trusted iran's enemies cannot be trusted not them these comments come as a ronnie and foreign minister job ads or if prepares to embark on a diplomatic tour meeting the remaining signatories of the nuclear agreement his job to try to preserve the deal has no doubt become more difficult. if they actually want to continue with the deal or they have to adopt tough diplomacy with the european. the europeans have to come up with mechanisms to protect european companies and european banks that want to invest and do trade with you on and an escalation of violence at syria's border seems linked to the u.s. pullout from the nuclear deal well i think the israelis are trying really hard to completely kill off the deal by rising tensions in the region they're essentially going to make it even very difficult for iran to even work with the europeans and i
3:08 am
think ultimately what they're trying to do is to put you on a confrontational path with the west and i mean that's the reason why they were against the deal from the beginning. iranian leaders know the nuclear deal is on borrowed time and there is mounting public pressure at home as well as deep internal divisions among iran's political heavyweights all this could mean that an international agreement years in the making something that represented a hard won diplomatic victory for iran is now beyond repair hardliners in iran have been emboldened by the events of the last few days and the moderates the government of president hosni rouhani are not only in a fight to save the nuclear deal abroad but also to maintain their own political futures here at home. the older zero to one of us milan is director of the iranian studies program at stanford university and he's joining us live from there
3:09 am
thank you very much indeed for being with us on al-jazeera are we seeing the start of this of a shift in the balance of power in iranian politics as a result of this. i think as a result of mr trump's decision clearly the hardliners feel emboldened they feel like they have been vindicated mr hominy clearly has repeated that he has been vindicated and they are trying to stop dish the ground i think for a far more oppressive seizure of power maybe by di r.g.c. that would not be in my view. and likely what adds to the urgency of the situation is the economic virtual collapse of the iranian currency and all the other kind of problems that are making the situation very fraught for the regime and for mr rove. if the hardliners continue to make statements as we've just
3:10 am
mentioned threatening in this case the destruction of two israeli cities for example is that going to make it less likely that it's going to be able to reach some sort of deal with the co signatories of the nuclear deal that the u.s. has pulled out all. i think so i think this kind of a foolish rhetoric by top clerics and top clerics who are directly appointed by mr harmony is going to make it very difficult for europeans to make the kind of effort they need to make and the kind of effort they have begun to make to possibly salvage the deal you can't try to help a regime that is constantly threatening the destruction of major other cities and if they had the clerics had been a little more wise if they having burned an american flag incompetently in the parliament the other day then europeans i think would have had a much better chance in a much better optics and
3:11 am
a much better context to try to salvage a deal that they want salvage the iranian regime wants salvage he wants selvage china and russia wants salvage and these bands of crooked. conservative clergy who have held the country literally hostage to their whims are not allowing this to happen how much is the rhetoric that we're hearing from all sides of iranian politics reflective of what the people in iran actually feel about what's going on. you know it's very difficult to say that because it's very difficult to have reliable polling but every anecdotal evidence i have seen some pollings that i have seen some of the reporting in the iranian media the social media that i try to follow they are to me completely indicative that this regime particularly the conservatives are completely isolated the iranian economy is reeling the currency
3:12 am
has lost almost sixty to seventy percent of its value two months ago if you had a dollar you could buy three thousand two month today if you have a dollar you can get eight thousand tomorrow that's a remarkable fall in people's livelihoods and people blame harmony they blame the conservatives they blame the r.g.c. who is monopolizing the economy and they blame them partly for the failure of the deal mr trump bears the bulk of the responsibility but some of these conservatives who in the last two years didn't allow rouhani and zarif to try to makes the deal stick mr harmony who banned any contact with the u.s. they bear some of the responsibility for the mess that we are in and of course mr netanyahu bears some responsibility because he is also in a fight of his life at home and keeping of give you minds busy with foreign wars seems to work for everybody in the region and in the world our best man is director

about risks kenya's director of public prosecutions has ordered the chief of police to open an investigation local media are reporting that the patel dam was investigated by the national water resources or forty and deemed unsafe but no action was taken nor any follow up by the all forty aside from questions over this there are seven other similar dams in the area all of them used for irrigating the crops from the air it's clear to see the consequences of such a dam burst but an interior ministry spokesman on the ground told out zero that no laws have been broken by the farm owners some people are claiming the number of missing could be larger than the national disaster team is same because many bodies have been recovered. that we've heard on the radio that forty three people are
3:16 am
missing i'm a local i just don't believe it we know it's over two hundred people that are missing. and so whatever the cause whatever the numbers the people of this rural district have to cope with their losses and somehow live in these grim conditions andrew symonds al-jazeera there is a county in kenya still ahead on al-jazeera malaysia's king agrees to pardon the jailed opposition leader anwar ibrahim paving the way for his eventual return to politics and how the braggs a vote is said to have sparked a growing culture of racism in the u.k. . by the springtime flowering of a mountain lake. to the first snowfall on a winter's day. hello and welcome back signs of the monsoon

malaysian king had agreed to pardon and while immediately it is going to be a full five it was means that he should not really be if i did it should be released immediately when it is. that you could be. but this speech really both of. which are remarkable words to hear from who was grooming and want to take over in the one nine hundred ninety s. during his first tenure as prime minister but he sect him as his deputy in one nine hundred ninety eight when unproven allegations of sodomy emerged and then oversaw his jailing for six years on corruption charges the following year in two thousand and fourteen he was convicted on separate sodomy charges and sentenced to five years now in events that not long ago would have seemed unthinkable and was wife one as he stands alongside mahathir as malaysia's first female deputy prime minister i didn't hear i had dreamt this for twenty years it's quite some time
