2:07 pm
implementation of arc agreement in general so any failings or any changes or any sort of intentional. lack of will to implement peace agreement or attentional attempt to change it would actually send a signal to the eland of the colombian government not very trustworthy negotiating or there's a chance without a doubt if we get a president at the door someone who at least is willing to say that they won't change the peace here and i think those divisions will end up actually being in these groups will come together a bit more because there's someone they feel they can trust but as i still think violence is not completely off the table in colombia's future unfortunately and right now we have very stark dissident groups operating in different parts of the country that you know because the peace negotiation simply is not as sure and bear has made little progress in the time that it's been taking place but it's still operate pretty militarily in sort of different drug trafficking organizations

a few weeks ago after the death of his wife barbara meanwhile the palestinian president mahmoud abbas has been released from hospital to receive treatment for pneumonia and fever in the past week the eighty two year old hopes to return to work soon abbas was last hospitalized in february during a trip to address the u.n. security council two boats will leave gaza on tuesday with palestinians needing urgent hospital care on board but tried to break through israel's blockade which has prevented medical supplies from getting in and patients from getting out of hospital have been struggling to treat thousands of palestinians wounded during the recent protests bernard smith reports garza is blockaded by israel on all sides sea included but this week two boats loaded with patients who need hospital treatment and students with university places will try to breach israel's sea blockade which begins sixteen kilometers out in the mediterranean that passengers have
2:10 pm
a strong determination to break this siege whatever the circumstances whatever the challenges whatever the obstacles that would have been that would be posed 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 at least now i have sixty five of them already admitted those who would want to do in the martial critter. but there are many other cases of cancer and open heart surgeries and many other complicate neurosurgical 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 borders are sealed must of time and these patients should travel 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 cannot wait life long waiting for this product up in. the boats that will be used to being kept hidden organizers fear israel will
2:11 pm
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 rebels near the southern syrian province of dadaab preparing for a possible offensive by government forces the area is mostly controlled by opposition groups the u.s. is warning of a strong response if government troops do it tack international and regional powers are holding talks to try and avoid a wider conflict. so. the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov saying that the syrian army should be the only force present at the southern border syria southern border russia making clear its position as well we understand behind the scenes negotiations continue between
2:12 pm
international and regional players to find some sort of an arrangement for the future of the provinces in the southern and southwestern syria. syrian government as of late really the government media they've been beating the drums of war saying that they have been sending troops to the front lines and dropping leaflets from government helicopters telling rebels to surrender so the syrian government making clear that that is their next target but that is different from other areas because there are international regional players involved united states israel jordan because of its geo strategic location jordan and israel for example they both do not want to see iranian troops or iranian troops on their borders so if there is any arrangement or any deal that it will definitely not involve iranian troops taking part in any battle but we understand is what
2:13 pm
they're trying to do is reach some sort of an arrangement whereby the rebels decide to lay down their arms and to surrender those who want to leave to the rebel controlled problems have it live in the northwest will be able to do so but state authority will return to this area jordan doesn't want to see any escalation as well because it will create a refugee crisis also wants to open its border crossing there which is really vital for trade so all international and regional negotiations behind the scenes to try to find a solution to this corner of syria what to do in this corner of syria to avoid a military a military conflict that could bring in regional powers. well still ahead on al-jazeera why the. us in rwanda have borne out of a second hand clothes. we look at the new attempt to bring libya's political rivals together and restore peace.
