5:05 pm
had told him that president trump in return would end hostile relations and cooperate economically this was not a meeting president trump was told about in advance but in washington tonight he hinted he could yet be traveling to singapore a lot of people are working on it it's moving along very nicely so we're looking at june twelfth singapore that hasn't changed. and it's more along pretty well analysts the splits on who's driving the agenda donald trump is seen as a person who can start a war and the last say forty eight hours to get maybe more of the fear that the moment thompson is strange is going to cancel the summit and then this view to a new escalation of tensions and probably of what if this year has been decisive others think it's kim in the driving seat they think his commitment to denuclearize
5:06 pm
nation means u.s. withdrawal from the region to not unilateral north korean disarmament in exchange for the lifting of sanctions i think it's the north koreans driven disengagement consolidate nuclear deterrence they've decided that they can push forward under those reasons not only with the united states but also south korea and reengage with china they have a clear pathway forward whoever is driving the june twelfth singapore summit is looking a lot more likely than it was it seems like longer but it was only three days ago that the u.s. the north korean summit was suddenly called off since then we've been on what some have called a diplomatic rollercoaster roller coasters run along cranks someone designs them plans the twists and turns this ride is altogether different and a lot more serious under thomas al jazeera so this really army has fired into the southern gaza strip killing three palestinians attack happened in the city of yunus
5:07 pm
two birds will set sail from gaza this week with palestinians who need urgent hospital care they'll try to break a blockade imposed by israel which is prevented medical supplies from getting into the territory and patients from leaving hospitals have been struggling to treat thousands of palestinians who've been wounded by israeli bullets during recent protests and its first reports. gaza is blockaded by israel on all sides c included but this week two boats loaded with patients. need hospital treatment and students with university places will try to breach israel's sea blockade which begins sixteen kilometers out in the mediterranean the passengers have a strong determination to break this siege whatever the circumstances whatever the challenges whatever the obstacles that would have been that would be imposed by the israeli side gaza's hospitals are full of patients who need urgent medical treatment there are those injured in two months of protests and longer term cases
5:08 pm
at least now i have sixty five of them already admitted those who would want to do in the marshall for turn but there are many other cases of cancer in open heart surgeries and many other complicate newer surgical cases of the baby cases all of them need to travel abroad because of shortage of personalities induced by the israeli blockade in gaza strip and why can't they travel abroad because the bulk of our seed must of time and what these patients should probably in time he can say to a patient why when cancer come back after three months that he will deteriorate and you have too much complication they can outwait lifelong weight in what is part of dropping. the boats that will be used to being kept hidden organizers fear israel will try to destroy them before they leave the port and reality the boats are not going to get any further than israel's maritime blockade which is as tightly and harshly enforced as the land blockade but at least those on the boats will highlight again the open prison like conditions that there are here in gaza that prevent almost anyone from leaving. burnitz with al-jazeera gaza

a protest against refugees has ended without much confrontation in berlin the far right party alternative for germany march through the capital it swept into parliament last year on a wave of anti migrant sentiments is now the largest opposition party extra police were deployed because pro refugees supporters held a council demonstration called stop the hatred there was even a for to live votes on the river and many on board could be seen taunting far right matches since as you fifteen more than a million refugees of arrived in germany as part of chancellor angela merkel's open door policy last year she agreed to cap the number of arrivals a two hundred thousand a year as a concession during talks to form a new government last month merkel agreed to take in ten thousand people slated by the un's refugee agency for a resettlement program so clear which countries they will come from. they have a chance and joins us live from berlin you can barely hear us in the last hour
5:10 pm
david as ever i'm going home. to well janey yes this century's been a very vocal confrontation and thank goodness not a violent confrontation the police about two thousand of them spent all of the day trying to keep the two sets of protests as a partner that was very difficult but they managed it there was nothing in the way of have any injuries but the two sides got pretty close to each other and there was a huge shouting match between them here at the brandenburg gate of course the counter-demonstration just behind me were kept away from the main rally and the speeches here in front of the brandenburg gate but they certainly made their views known they were saying nazis out nazi scum and it's fair to say that the alternative to germany we had to two speeches from the main co-leaders are having a real impact and in fact it's disturbing the liberal left wing sides of germany
5:11 pm
and there were two terms trying to drown out the message here they didn't succeed in doing that they didn't stop the rally or the march it has dispersed peacefully but there's no doubt a tool that we'll turn to for germany since the election to the bundestag the german parliament last year where they got something like ninety two of the seats in the parliament it now means that the main opposition voice in the bundesliga and that is having a great impact on the politics of germany because for the first time you're hearing in the parliament what we might describe as paranoid racist and xenophobic remarks and those are now under the guise of the freedom of speech and the rallies this body can put on also being heard on the streets of berlin as little doubt that there is a major impact by the alternative for germany and that. discussion here was the future for germany the anti islamic anti refugee they want everything stopped dead
5:12 pm
very worried about the committee's defects on the committee and such a large number of immigrants more than one million of them since twenty fifteen so these are big problems that the whole of germany faces but they have very extreme and right wing solutions and it's going to be very difficult but i'm going to call and coalition the grand coalition of the social democrats to compete and hit back at the alternative for germany already they're having to put much stricter policies on the borders of germany with refugees and that's upsetting the balance of the coalition itself because the social democrats are much more liberal and they're opposed to some of the measures that angle in the world is bringing in strike i'm just wondering david's i. mean what actually commentary is. sorry say again jay what actually prompted this at this stage and where will this leave angela merkel. well most people in the
5:13 pm
alternative of germany say she created the problem she created the way the party by allowing so many open borders and so many refugees in but so what she's doing is trying to tighten down the access to germany trying to make sure there's a quick process for expelling any of those refugees who have no rights of asylum those who are the so-called economic migrants but will this be enough for the alternative for germany i very much doubt it i think we're going to see similar scenes many more during the course of the next few years. thank you for that david chaytor. still ahead on al-jazeera. all we hearing him is paying lip service to corruption and he's going to do both and he's going to do their hundred days i haven't seen anybody being arrested yet south africa so all around the. hundred days in office but is he living up to his promise is also the campaign is pushing
