fighting close to the capital tripoli. for the politicians and diplomats urged the european union to reject donald trump's peace plan for palestinians and israelis and. carter where indonesians are preparing to vote in an election that many will be about the economy and trying to decide whether the current president has done enough to improve their lives. protect your revolution that's the rallying call of protesters in saddam who feel their job is only half done they've been camping outside the military headquarters and phone for two weeks but they fear the security forces might be planning to break up this session the protesters say they want the new military leaders to immediately hand over power to a civilian government the military council is asking political parties to agree on
7:50 pm
an independent figure to be interim prime minister meanwhile deposed president omar al bashir as close as an alpha has stepped down as defense minister he had briefly taken charge as interim military leader off to bashir was removed in a coup last week more now from him a morgue and full. we've been speaking to activists and protesters in front of the army headquarters and they say they are concerned that the military will try to disperse them by force of course there are barricades that have been placed there by the protesters ten days ago when the sit in front of the army headquarters started let's go back a few days and remember that on the third and fourth day of the city and security forces fired at the protesters and tried to reach them but the barricades as well as backup from the military stop security forces from being able to disperse the protesters for so for those in front of the sit in these barricades are very important and they're saying that the military is trying to disperse them before they hear announcement saying that there is an independent civilian government in
7:51 pm
place of course the head of the military council met with political parties yesterday and when the spokesman came out of the meeting he said he was optimistic and when he came to the issue of the sitting in front of the army headquarters this is what he said. we do not call for the removal of demonstrators by force in fact the reason we intervened in the first place was because force was used by the ousted regime but our call to everyone who is organizing the protests to bring life back to normalcy still stands having said that if we find people with weapons of course we have to bear the responsibility as guarantors of the state of course protesters are not assured by the move by the words they're saying that because the military is trying to to break the barricade and try to breach it it means that they are going to be trying to use force if actually to disperse them something they don't want to see happening they're saying they want to continue with the threats and till the sudanese professional association the body that is not a political body but has been spearheading the calls for the past four months
7:52 pm
assures them that there will be a civilian transitional government in place that is independent from the military council they have been talks between the military council and political parties some differences including how the transitional government should run but at the moment the protesters are tense they're saying that they're waiting for a handover they've been called for more people to. joined the stetson so that the army finds it very hard to break it apart and disperse them despite promises not to do that at the moment people are worried that the military might use force despite promises not to do so so they say they will continue with the threaten they will wait for the serious professional association to give them assurances that there will be an independent transitional government otherwise they will protest and tell that news comes out let's get more on this now we're joined by the founder and president of sudan policy forum very good to have you with us on al-jazeera the when protesters call for immediate civilian role is that possible. substantively speaking years but procedurally speaking not in other words. the
7:53 pm
should have been very well deeley the process which constituted identification of goals synchronization of resources and establishment of a common language this is not happening that the army has shown some sort of shrewdness and that is on the other side you see civilians with very. very contradictory goals and completely lacking in direction since or direction and i think that is warning very much to. the wall to groove so they are putting pressure on the military rulers why it should have been on board delegation as well as the military would and if there are divisions within the protest movement within political parties does that then work in the military's favor even though they're saying we are only here to hand over power to
7:54 pm
a transitional severe civilian government. i believe we are in a serious situation because the army offices have made no attempt to deconstruct the political apparatus inherited from the game nor did they do anything to decompose its ideological heritage and that is warning very much to the demonstrators but then if you look at the. can that be done and what it's been four days since she was removed from power. it can be symbolically speaking iran here are some at once said the military do then what more can they be doing they need face a wall to a knowledge the fact that there has been some. genocide that has been committed on the periphery that some very very cold i mean if they just use to use
7:55 pm
conciliatory tone rather than try and accuse one group or other then that since a good signal if they speak about bringing some figures from the. deal to trial immediately then that sense is a signal but no one is getting the sense that neither the military officers nor the civilian delegation is going in the right path and now if you look at the civilians you notice that they have already embark in a process in a series for prime minister without identifying a methodology nor speaking about the criteria for the choice of the prime minister very important days ahead thank you very much for your analysis it on this while and i believe i thank you frank. moving on to other news now out of libya where a number of fighters loyal to warlord half a have reportedly handed over their weapons and calls to forces loyal to the u.n.
7:56 pm
backed government in tripoli the two sides have been fighting for control of the capital since earlier this month where thousands of civilians have been forced out of their homes by the violence on the outskirts of tripoli mark without the war had reports. displeased in their own country this is one of the many offices in the libyan capital where people affected by the latest fighting have come to register their names their promised food and shelter photos while hamad left his home where the ruby area south of tripoli after random gunfire hit their house he says he and his family narrowly escaped death. sort of got to our house was in the crossfire from three directions so i gathered my family and took shelter in one room five minutes later a rocket landed and exploded in the house it destroyed three rooms. fighting has intensified civilians areas since the forces loyal to the city for have to launch
7:57 pm
an offensive to take control of the capital tripoli on the fourth of april are you and back to police the government has launched a counter or fence of to defend the capital the fighting soon currently extends to around one hundred sixty kilometers south of tripoli it includes the areas of gaza have been a cheer the disused international airport also one e so. where there will be an ns are several occasions in and around tripoli have been also hit by a restrikes the united nations says more than one thousand people have left their homes to escape the fighting on the southern outskirts of tripoli government officials here say that number continues to rise and they won back the government. accusing have those forces of targeting civilian areas with heavy weapons mohammed says he saw dead bodies near his house and one of his neighbors was killed by
7:58 pm
a random bullet he and his family hardly had any chance to collect their blooming says one woman. we don't know where we should go has been destroyed in our area it's caves there and we left everything behind including our livestock. they're being provided with food and blankets by aid organizations but municipal council members say they don't have enough shelters to accommodate the groomed number of displaced people. but that five hundred families have reduced that only in the center we're getting more people but the problem we face now is that we don't have enough shelters we have even used state hotels and hospitals to lodge them some of these people have been provided to the houses by local do knows others hostage by their relatives but is it only been heard to have turned it into a better resume there weren't the houses they've lived to behind could be destroyed
7:59 pm
in the fighting. tripoli. now twenty five senior international figures have signed an open letter urging european nations to reject any u.s. middle east peace plan that's unfair to palestinians the u.s. is preparing to announce what it calls the deal of the century where those who signed the better say this is a critical moment in the middle east and europe they accuse the white house of departing from longstanding u.s. policy and distancing itself from the stablished international legal norms by recognizing only one side claim to jerusalem they said the u.s. has demonstrated what they call a disturbing indifference to israeli settlement expansion european nations letter goes on should back a plan that requires the creation of a palestinian state alongside israel on but what is based on the pre nine hundred sixty seven lines and with east jerusalem as its capital they say that any plan
8:00 pm
that reduces palestinian statehood to an entity devoid of sovereignty territorial contiguity and economic viability would fatally damage the cause of a durable peace for palestinians and israelis alike let's get more on this our senior political analyst about wonder sharon is joining us live from london it is a strong statement about iran but will it have an impact do you think. well my guess is that this statement has not come as an embarrassment or as a surprise to european leaders and hence i think there's probably some sort of a synergy between former officials and present officials in europe which also means that both sides the former and the and the president are are worried about what the administration is trying to do come june perhaps in israel palestine they've been back bankrolling american initiatives over there.
