crash frankfurt six one as the race for the last champions league slot for next season heats up. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program israel and hamas have reportedly agreed to a ceasefire after a weekend of violence in gaza they claimed the lives on both sides house city and officials say that the agreement came into effect just a few hours ago now over the weekend at least nineteen palestinians and four israelis were killed in the most severe escalation of violence between israelis and palestinians since the two thousand and fourteen gaza war. the well that's a hospital in gaza palestinians mourn their dead. the the funerals were held for
a pregnant woman and her fourteen month old niece both killed on saturday the girl's father blames israel. the children were playing and they were struck by a missile shot from an israeli drone. oh and israeli spokesman denied that the defense forces the i.d.f. were involved and said the palestinians themselves were responsible. for the unfortunate deaths of that woman and the baby were not the result of ideas with rather a result of the use of weapons by terrorist organizations in that area in the southern gaza strip. israel says it's targeting what it calls terror elements in the gaza strip pinpointing farm buildings cars. and high rise buildings in gaza city. the israeli government insists the strikes are in response to hamas and islamic jihad firing more than six hundred
rockets across the border into southern israel this weekend many were intercepted while still airborne but some landed in residential areas destroying homes injuring and killing civilians hastily declared in the early hours of the morning the latest ceasefire has a verted an all out war but with tensions high it won't take much for the violence to flare up again. especially in correspondent tanya kramer who has the latest from jerusalem so we've heard that this cease fire has been in effect for a few hours now how is it holding up so far. well it appears to be holding since the early morning hours there have been no a rockets being fired into southern israel from gaza and also there have been no more israeli airstrikes on gaza palestinian media have reported that as of four thirty am this cease fire has gone into effect a cease fire that has been brokered this time again in mediated by egypt with the
help of qatar and the united nations. and tania we know that one of the main sticking points one of the things that really sparked this most recent conflict was on the palestinian officials in gaza were saying that israel was not taking steps to ease its blockade under promise ceasefire deals of the past how likely is it that now we will see some steps to resolve this. well it's all about the implementation as you said hamas and islamic jihad and other militant groups in gaza they have accused israel of failing to implement understandings that have been reached during the last time there was an escalation and was in late march and also at earlier times we've seen many of those escalations flaring up over the past year and we understand that this time also. the ceasefire or
calm is based on those understanding said have included previously the lifting of some of the restrictions on gaza like expanding the fishing zone. getting in aid money from qatar the flow of more electricity into gaza now it's really all about this implementation but it also shows that without a longer term plan a solution political solution for the gaza strip which has been under blockade and has been under closure for over ten years now it's going to be highly likely that we see possibly other times of escalation tanya given the tenuous situation there right now what is the mood. well i think people on both sides waiting to see actually two to know bit more about the understandings being reached i think in gaza there is a sense of relief it's also the first day of ramadan today it has been very
exhausting. and people really would like to see that some of those restrictions being lifted now in the south of israel as well so many barrages of rockets have been. launched against communities their people have been confined many to their house or to their safe rooms but they also would probably like to see what is the result of all of this is this just a period of calm and waiting for another escalation or will there be some every solution at the end tanya kramer in jerusalem thank you tonya at least forty one people have been killed after a russian plane burst into flames during an emergency landing at moscow's sheremetyevo airport the aeroflot airliner was flying to the northern city of months when the pilot reported technical problems and turned back.
panic breaks out onboard aeroflot flight as you one four nine two this video shot by one of the passengers captures the fateful moments after the plane's emergency landing at moscow's sheremetyevo airport. most of the seventy eight passengers didn't manage to escape the flames as the lucky survivors staggered to safety rescue vehicles rushed towards the burning hole. several passengers were taken to hospital. where did the justices figure that was come up with. their only source verity of the injuries comes from smoke inhalation and. many other people have injuries to the bodies. and legs. it's unclear why the russian build sukhoi superjet one hundred turned back about thirty minutes into its flight the fire didn't break out until the plane touched
the ground the aircraft bounced off the tarmac as the pilot attempted to land causing the fuel tanks to burst and ignite the disaster also raises questions over the super jet one hundred since one crashed in indonesia in two thousand and twelve there have been several complains about technical flaws in the aircraft scrambling for answers aeroflot has activated its crisis response team and russian president vladimir putin has ordered a full investigation into the disaster of get more now we're joined by correspondent emily sure went who has the view from moscow so emily what are you hearing from investigators about the cause of this accident. well the investigative committee has been rather careful about what information they've been releasing they haven't actually stated in the fischel reason for the crash yet they've said that they will only do that after a thorough investigation they are investigating what happened as a violation of safety rules what we do know is that the plane was flying from
moscow to more money and that the pilot sent a distress signal shortly after takeoff now itself is actually saying that the plane had to return to unspecified technical reasons they say that the fire broke out after landing now there are conflicting versions about whether the fire actually broke off broke out during the flight or after landing from videos it does certainly look like the fire broke out after landing but pilots the pilots from the plane have been reporting that the plane may have been hit by lightning that could have caused the fire or that it could have also caused technical issues other sources say that the plane. broke out in flames when it hit the landing strip so really not much official information not much information lots of different
versions being discussed so we'll have to wait and see to get more clarity on what they are really happened what the reasons for this accident there also seems to be emily a bit of a debate about be a merge and see response what more can you tell us about. when it comes to the emergency response people have been discussing on social media one thing that people have been discussing is why it took so long for the blaze to be put out as some eyewitnesses said it did and one report in the media says that perhaps. airport used its own fire brigades rather than relying on civilian fire brigades who were not let on to the airport territory and that that could have been a reason for the slow response but again this is not confirmed another thing that people are discussing is the evacuation of passengers an aeroflot representative
said that passengers were were actually evacuated within fifty five seconds the norm there he said was ninety seconds so a rather quick evacuation but media sources are citing. other sources so again not very confirmed but who are who are saying that actually passengers panicked and they tried to get their luggage their hand luggage out of the storage compartments and that actually slowed the evacuation of passengers and with forty one people dead in this instance the search for answers will certainly continue i will be sure when with the view from moscow thank you. and let's get a quick check now some other stories making news around the world white house national security advisor john bolton says that the u.s. will deploy a carrier strike group and bombers to the middle east to send a clear and unmistakable message to iran it is the latest in the series of moves aimed at ratcheting up pressure on tehran a year after washington was true from the nuclear accord. former agricultural
