old palestinian died early on saturday after being shot by israeli forces while protesting near the border fence on friday or palestinians are demanding the right to return to the lands from which their families were violently expelled during the founding of israel in one nine hundred forty eight they are also calling for an end to israel's twelve year blockade of gaza let's go now to our correspondent harry force that he's joining us from the border fence harry there was a lot of hope and also a lot of precautions taken to make sure that today's demonstrations the one year anniversary would be as peaceful as possible but we are hearing unfortunately that one protester has been killed. that's right this was this this young teenager seventeen year old. he was injured here at this site. east of gaza city a little earlier we actually spoke to some of the people that were around him and
10:51 pm
they showed is a video of of how severe the injuries were to his face and we then got confirmation from the gaza health ministry which was the same as the story that they gave us that he'd been struck directly in the face by it see a gas canister as tragic as that one losses of course that does seem to be at least so far the only confirmed death since the beginning of these protests this afternoon and from what we've been hearing and seeing through the day it does seem that the a number of uses of live ammunition are less than than what we've seen in previous such occasions and indeed there have been those instructions given to protest is to stay back from the fence to not burn tires not to launch incendiary devices largely we've seen most people observing that although we have seen people run to the fence through objects we've seen blasts at the fence as well which suggests that at least one occasion maybe i.d.f. could have been used and we have seen life i used to in some of those instances now
10:52 pm
i'm joined here by our move mohammad who's an english teacher here in gaza. we understand that there is a deal in the works that that is why there are these restrictions being imposed on both sides in terms of trying to keep this relatively peaceful and that there may be things like an increase in qatari money and increase and it should see an increase in the range of fishing rights up to twelve nautical miles are those sorts of things enough after your protest to satisfy people who come here every week ok actually i don't think they're i think they're i don't think so and that is that is in a cause we thought one of them told me early on his side and that is it saw you here is that so is said so little for us as a young people in gaza strip actually it doesn't have a survival of a strike. with the many crisis inside gaza strip there are many catastrophe here or there the much of the of the human state here is it's so bad it's got us to be so
10:53 pm
needs more than this requirements actually so we will not agree about this actually i think this is so little and so weak for us we will not submit for that we need more because we want our freedom actually we want to where we want to have many spirits there are many there are many things that we require it actually our human life it's so miserable we need where we need job where we need medicine we need electricity we need to grow seeing all of that is not not there that is not to even go the service nor anything see it so we will go on our resistance for this cubicin it peacefully and we will try it we will go on shore but i will most thought we would like to stop short of that i think that's so so so what would be sufficient do you think to bring these protests to an end i mean a complete lifting of the blockade yes we need to break the siege this is it the
10:54 pm
siege is on a human the seizure more than say since more than twelve years ago and that is on a human we are asking from international community from the security council or from all their wards around us to help us to save gaza gaza under the seas most of the twelve years ago and that is not acceptable for us as a human here we are a lot of need to smoke so much that is not enough for us to give us a sauce example than a little but we are not the animals we are human we we we need to where we need to live peacefully if there if. it's really like course when to want to talk. to live it with cites us inside the gaza they must big they must fit for us. give our human rights salary and grossing god exists on ok thank you a moment thank you so much so that is the situation here we understand there's a press conference about to get underway from the organizing committee of the march
10:55 pm
we're also expecting them to have a meeting tonight and we're expecting some kind of announcement potentially tomorrow about the prospects of this deal and whether what's happened today so far which seems to be relatively on the low side when it comes to injuries when it comes to violence whether that means that this nascent deal will indeed go through this weekend gerri thank you very much for that for now that is how i feel that with the latest live at the gaza israel fence thank you. we're going to move on to other news now friday for the largest anti-government protests in algeria with ninian's taking part in demonstrations across the country where rallies were held in at least forty four of the country's forty eight provinces people are demanding the resignation of president happen as it is with a flicker and a change the entire political system and mankind is monitoring events from neighboring tunisia he sent us this update from the capital. the protests is a made their demands very clear they won't stop protesting until there is
10:56 pm
a complete change within the governance of algeria itself now there is a polls of the protests we're not seeing the kinds of numbers of people out on the streets as we did on friday and the reason for that poses is that there is traditionally been over the last six weeks on a saturday but there is now a political development and that is the in the expense of article one zero two of the. constitution now that article suggests that the constitutional council can call for the removal of the president on health grounds as long as it's passed in parliament by a two thirds majority now the army. hoping that might take some of the steam out of the protest movement of the protesters say it's not good enough that leaves office they need to be an entire change and all have his loyalists and everybody who is connected to the beautifully government needs to leave and there needs to be

10:58 pm
still on the table which says that the others are ready to recognize the state of israel but the israelis have to recognize the presence of an independent palestinian state with eastern jerusalem as its capital. they're also asking the iranians to pull out their proxy fighters particularly in syria and yemen but they're not talking about the humanitarian crisis in the in yemen because of the presence of saudi arabia which is one of the key players in the arab league the most important or the highlight of the event could be this afternoon when the quarter meets on libya and this is a problem they want to bring that to narrow the differences between the two key players phases of ours reimers a base in tripoli read a good general khalid behalf that based in the east despite attempts in the past to bring about a permanent solution to the crisis in libya but the government base in tripoli is lashing out of the international community and the u.n. in particular saying that they are trying just to further advance the agenda of

11:00 pm
cut short had to call hayne has more from washington. this letter is significant because of what has happened in the past we know the national security advisor john bolton wants to pursue in north korea what he calls the libyan model that is where libya gave up its nuclear weapons or they believe they did give the nuclear weapons chemical biological weapons sent it to the united states in return for sanctions relief that is something that infuriated the north koreans they said that was a nonstarter and they were to cancel negotiations so president donald trump came out and said no we don't want the libyan model obviously north koreans are very aware of what eventually happened to moammar gadhafi the leader of libya who was killed by rebels and overthrown in his country so the letter basically spells out what the u.s. wants and that is sending all of the nuclear weapons and bomb fuel to the united states complete disarmament of the biological chemical weapons full inspections getting rid of all missile sites.
