3:49 pm
ukrainian president. hold on to power and the challenge. former prime minister. order of oil. hello israel has reopened the two main crossings into gaza as part of a cease fire negotiations between the two sides. protests along the fence dividing . four palestinian protesters were killed by israeli forces and two hundred forty others injured during the demonstrations. joining us from gaza to first tell us whether there's been any confirmation from hamas that cease fire negotiations or
3:50 pm
a deal is in the works has now been reached. that in there's not been any official confirmation yet but the thinking here in gaza is that a deal is all but complete it's been reported extensively in media outlets here especially media outlets close to how much you also have many outlets in the israeli media that are saying that a tentative deal has been reached this deal as we understand it would include the opening of the two main border crossings would also allow fishermen to fish off the coast here or anywhere between twelve to fifteen not a cool miles off the coast which would be a huge boost to fishermen in gaza it would also allow the entry of goods now with regard to the overnight hours there was an escalation of tensions you had some rockets that were launched from gaza that landed in israel no one was injured we are told also there was artillery fire from the israeli side of the border into
3:51 pm
gaza as a response but i must say that this was very much something that was a lot smaller in scale than you would have imagined would have happened in the past and i think when you're talking about the protests that happened yesterday the main word that kept coming up was restraint you saw a real effort by hamas by the other palestinian factions by the israelis to try to deescalate the situation to try to ensure that things did not get out of control we were there at the protest yesterday that was the first year anniversary of the great march of return here's our report. on the first anniversary of the great march of return palestinians came out committed to their cause continue on out of it and then we're here for the anniversary of nine days and then that has been stolen by israel we had to tell everyone that we had right and they've been taken by these three. for many here this is become
3:52 pm
a regular weekly routine a psych. all of bullets and tear gas all of it bringing death and injury to the protesters. as in protests past some demonstrators ran toward the border fence and others are old rocks toward israeli forces but today most stayed behind simply observing waiting to see what happens next but making a difference was the presence of hamas and islamic jihad volunteers who actively tried to keep things calm. despite the flare ups things have so far today been far less chaotic than many people feared they would be the big question now what exactly happens next. the great march of return protests began on march thirtieth two thousand and eighteen when civil society groups called for action against the twelve year blockade on gaza the original aim was to break through the fence and reclaim their ancestral land the protests were later organized by hamas saturday's
3:53 pm
anniversary was set against the backdrop of a bid by egypt to deescalate the latest round of tensions between israel and hamas negotiations are ongoing amass officials on the scene said they'd arrived at a crossroads you had that must not hold up without everything will depend on how israel deals with protesters will they stop attacking civilians and stop the aggression and airstrikes on gaza and also going to respect what's been a great upon with the egyptians last some were cautiously optimistic about the prospect of a deal others worry a deal won't ensure things will fundamentally change the mood over all the us this is a thought was that it had to get heated the economic situation in gaza has been very miserable for a long time but unless two years it's become more miserable and unemployment is very high there's no money in gaza the border is closed which means eighty percent of needed items come out and who goes and people aren't allowed to travel on their own scene of hospitals for treatment of
3:54 pm
a sentiment echoed by many here who vowed to continue to come out week after week year. you're here until they finally get the rights and opportunities they deserve that was also quite significant what we did not see at the scene of the protests yesterday we did not see tires being burned that's been a staple of protests in the past year we did not see incendiary balloons being launched words the fence with israel that's something else that is typically seen at these protests so again there was a real effort on the part of the volunteers that were there on the part of how mouse the other palestinian factions and the israelis to keep the situation as calm as possible so that some kind of peace deal can be reasoned in fact israeli security forces even came out with a statement phrasing house for the restraint that was demonstrated that's something that in the past would have seemed almost unheard of so today there is a renewed sense of cautious optimism that this despite what happened overnight despite the rockets being launched despite the response of artillery fire on the
3:55 pm
