ago. the i.o.c. saying there is no concrete evidence to support claims of states. says he will run for reelection in the two thousand eight hundred presidential race . getting into my name is neil harvey you're watching the weekly here on r.t. and. tensions are rising in lebanon where protesters have attempted to storm the u.s. embassy in the capital beirut the rally there is the latest in a string of protests decrying president trump's decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital. i.
was you. look. right now we're witnessing a. just a few minutes ago there was a charge from at least i'd say fifty or sixty new subs and some of them will be in bottoms others actually carrying m. sixteen s we managed to push back. a number of. palestinian protesters one of two of which they managed to catch and take back to the base behind me which you can see now so that caused a certain amount of tension. but at the moment now things are calm right down the police i think engaged in more of the cleanup and the rearranging themselves you can see behind me you'll see when this army personnel reposition themselves police
start to take control of the area and these demonstrations are beginning to roll out and i think we're at the beginning of something quite big you know years ago or so you saw what stops the arab spring then and now that i'm sure a lot of governments love the leaks in the region and i think many of those same elites in the middle east will be wondering is this going to escalate sunday's also seem protesting gaza and clashes with the police in the city of bethlehem local journalists into cool direct reports from the israeli palestinian border. the palestinians in gaza strip and the west bank continued their broadcast of the fourth day of anger palestinians in gaza are protesting on the first stone where i am now which is not. a lot of confrontations and clashes are happening now between youth protesters and the israelis since the morning there were a lot of protests and demonstrations in students and press journalists who were
chanting slogans against trump's decision for recognizing should lose a limb as the state of israel where now everything's asked relating especially in bethlehem there are lots lots of that tear gas bombs and live bullets it's very dangerous now in bethlehem because it's the main act a lot of for testers in palestine especially in bethlehem are very angry and moving to gaza strip there is only one injury on board here with that tear gaius and there was a russian correspondent who was also affected by tear gas by. jerusalem is considered sacred by jews muslims and christians the jewish quarter of the city is home to the western wall the last remnant of the second jewish temple which was destroyed by romans the city also houses the shrine of the dog of the rock that's the oldest islamic monument still in existence. the third holiest site in islam this roll
calls jerusalem its eternal capital over most of the international community doesn't recognize that claim no country in the world has an embassy in jerusalem only some consulates the western part of the city's mostly israeli the eastern part palestinian holy sites are particularly sensitive issue with unrest frequently erupting over the. israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu is on his first trip to europe following america's recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital his first stop was france where he failed to see eye to eye on the issue with president emanuel macron with more details is charlotte devinsky. israeli prime minister has been in france to start his european tour where he is due to meet the foreign ministers of countries at a business meeting but he started on sunday with a meeting with president of france where the two men discussed the recent announcement by u.s. president donald trump that the u.s. would recognize jerusalem is being the capital of israel that announcement has
sparked a renewed tensions in the region and the two men agreed that peace was the only option but how they see that peace unfolding they came down very different sides of the coin take a listen to what they said she and i expressed to prime minister netanyahu my disappointment of the u.s. president's declaration and explained that france sees it as a contrary to international law and as dangerous for peace because it doesn't seem so sure because of security for israel and for the israelis themselves it's always been our capital region has never been the capital of any other people i think the sooner the palestinians come to grips with this reality the sooner we will move towards peace and this is why i think president. historic and important for peace president actually criticized that decision by donald trump and he's not the
only leader made big criticisms of that decision to say that jerusalem is the capital of israel we also heard from the british prime minister theresa may who. disagrees with that decision she also described it as being helpful meanwhile the german foreign minister said that he believes that it feels confrontation in the area now when doing netanyahu the israeli prime minister says that he respects europe but he isn't prepared to accept double standards and that's because he said he hid. voices condemning that decision by door trump to state that jerusalem is the capital of israel had heard only condemnation of the rockets that are being fired at israel. the arab league condemned trump's move and some of its members even called for recognition of the state of palestine with east jerusalem as the capital lebanon's foreign minister suggested sanctions should be imposed on the us
and protests were seen around the globe. no one has the right to play with the fates of billions of people for the sake of one's personal ambitions. was. the kingdom of jordan refused the recognition by the states of jerusalem as the capital of israel and we condemn it is violating international law . the decision by the united states in its context gives legitimacy and recognition for occupation and the allowance of a de facto status using force. the number of rallies in support of palestine were held across europe and turkey an emergency session of the un security council was convened and during that meeting
of the fifteen members fourteen you know if he's against just one u.s. . we regret the u.s. president's decision to moscow med washington's decision with serious concern these decisions are helpful to the prospects for peace in the region our actions reflected an honest assessment of reality it is fueling tensions and increasing instability in an already volatile and turbulent region israel like all nations has the right to determine its capital city unilaterally actions attempting to change the status of jerusalem respect for its in the long existing foundation for thirty two months of these really palestinian issue the united states will not be lectured to by countries that lack any credibility when it comes to treating both israelis and palestinians fairly the decision by trump has sparked much to bait so we discussed the issue with a number of guests. the peace process it actually paves the way to peace because
israel will be called upon by the same trumpet ministration to make concessions to its palestinian neighbor which it will be much more ready to do now that a basic wrong has been corrected which is to to rightfully acknowledge that they drew sloan is the capital the possibility is really seem blocked by what mr trump has done gruesome is a very very sensitive issue to the palestinians to the arabs to the muslims and to the christians of the world and what what he has done. created a serious situation not only of mistrust but of instability and potential for explosion in this part of the world the palestinian authority looks and the hamas is of course they look for any excuse to call for a day of rage so you know that the hamas is in business to kill israelis and to kill political opponents like the fatah and the p.a. uses the day of rage as an excuse in order to avoid making any headway on the peace
process nerd intifada really means a popular uprising and a popular uprising can take the varieties of ways what is going on today is an intifada what went on three months ago in jerusalem was an intifada but it was entirely peaceful and that's what our authority really aims at popular uprising that is nonviolent is the best way of expressing the feelings and the rejection of the palestinian people of the trump and israeli occupation. on tuesday the russian team was banned from competing at the twenty eight hundred winter olympics international olympic committee chiefs reached their decision based on the findings of an independent investigation into alleged state sponsored doping at the individual athletes to complete their clean will be allowed to compete and drink neutral flag. please you know i did elsley so will participate beads in
individual or team competitions under the name olympic else leads from russia. no one thought about what it actually means for the athletes to go to the olympics under a neutral flag it's simply the murder of our national sport. the probe headed by former swiss president samuel schmidt found evidence of systemic manipulation of the anti doping brawls and system and it also led to the suspension of russia's the limbic committee and a fifteen million dollars fine but they should report says it's unclear exactly who was behind any doping efforts. nevertheless the independent and impartial evidence do not allow the i.o.c. d.c. to establish with certitude either who initiated or who headed this scheme on many
occasions reference was made on the involvement at the minister of sports level but no indication independent or impartial evidence appeared to cooperate any involvement or knowledge at a higher level of the state the simple truth is that in order to compete at the highest level you have to do something to stay there and when you have a very well paying job at the level of mr parker and mr reedy and travers target and so on they need to do to kind of stay on on top of us into doing a new russia is very useful to keep this one is a thing i would question that i have my mind is ok soros has been and so long as it was completely beyond what next who else will go after like my my money would be on nobody because they want to keep beating or sick a piece of new drum say versus bad russia is bad because it is the only bad one in order i think for clean in a case you know not for the case that there's a lot of bad guys everywhere. you know it's just it won't change and now with this
it will change even for the let him and putin said the decision against the russian team was politically motivated saying it's wrong to impose collective responsibility that the i.o.c. president has given his assurance that politics played no part. the i.o.c. is politically absolutely neutral we would not allow her to be influenced by any kind of political considerations in. such a sporting metters they fielded exactly that question and they said this isn't a political decision but of course the world knows that it's exactly that this has been a controversy that has been clouded in political judgment and it's impossible to separate this particular decision from what's going on in the rest of the world regarding fake news and the allegedly intervention of russia into britain's bragg's
it vote and even the american presidential elections there is a lot of this kind of stuff swirling around the world at the moment a lot of it is beyond belief frankly about people are accepting some of it i don't think you can disentangle the two things. let me a putin is confirmed he will run for the russian presidency in march of next year details after the break. here's what people have been saying about redacted and this is. the only show i go out of my way to. the really packed. yam is the john oliver of march the americans do the same we are apparently better than the sea people you've never heard of. and see people you've never heard of redacted the night president of the
world bank very. seriously send us an e-mail so there's no the all important as a person but he is important in those far as his leaving would cause a risk in the regime falling apart so indeed the americans are americans so much less to have him leave old oil from time to time they keep seeing it again so in the end i think most countries are accepting that he will stay. this week the russian military announced syria had been completely liberated from islamic state but it warned that though no particular area was now held by the
jihadists there are still small pockets of resistance the russian operation in syria began in september of two thousand and fifteen when i still held more territory in the country than any other function a u.s. led coalition has also been involved in the northeast of the country the area west of the euphrates. but now liberated isis self-proclaimed caliphate effectively no longer exists saturday the iraqi government also declared it had fully rid the country of islamic state during the russian operation in syria correspondents were given direct access to the complex. this is the ad based in love hockey from which russian jets are launching the sorties against islam x. they target here in syria. whether it's.
time the pilots are ready to go what's a moment's notice. in this amphitheater laid down by the romans almost two thousand years ago that isis staged one of its sickest massacres the russian military considers it the crowding jewel of their operation here in syria. you can see here just some of the impressive military hardware that isis have in that possession that has made the battle for power mera so tough way extremely close to isis positions less than two kilometers away in.
the burbs a syrian artillery position who overlooking the industrial quarter of their resort the battle is said to be fierce isis fired back as we filmed shells began falling all around. we ran but the syrian batteries kept firing life even did as ordered is still far from normal but at least they won't be starving to death and the more. limit putin has announced that he will run for president in the election set for march of next year antes and karen has the details. it was widely expected that lattimer putin would decide to run for reelection next year however he has played coyle on the topic so many times over in recent months and one constant but wonder
whether he was genuinely conflicted on whether to run for the presidency again or whether he was just being really good at keeping a secret and playing the media nevertheless we were put out of our misery when he said this but you go i'm surprised you for your support yes present my candidacy for the president of the russian federation. but you barbara sure thank you for your reaction but first of all for you. but it still should prove to be an interesting race over the coming weeks and months with quite an eclectic mix of candidates throwing their hats into the ring one of the most prominent being a stop child who's been gaining headlines around the world she's a former reality t.v. presenter she's also a poster playboy amongst other things that she's considered to be the russian paris
hilton and what's also quite interesting about her is that she putin she's attended opposition rallies and she's promised to unite people against vladimir putin when all all the other interesting thing about her is that she happens to be the daughter of the former mayor of some petersburg a man who vladimir putin himself has referred to as his mentor in those early days so that should prove quite interesting but it girls aside there are an unprecedented number of women entering the race for the presidency next year which is quite extraordinary because it's the first time we've seen any woman enter the race for the presidency in russia in fourteen years and of course there are the usual suspects as well including the liberal democratic party head of lady mir she were not scare the communist party is again r.d. zyuganov and the liberal yabloko parties grigori you. also business. titov who is from the party of growth he has pledged to champion the rights of
entrepreneurs so quite an eclectic mix for the russian people to sink their teeth into ahead of the elections in march next year. this week the cryptocurrency bitcoin hit a high of ninety thousand dollars making it the fifth most valuable currency in circulation this price then took a turn for the worse and it has for the considerably sitting at just over fifteen thousand dollars now volatility in the online gaming service steam no longer accept the currency decision followed the hardest by the. nice irish they stole millions of dollars worth of the currency and this is that it takes a look now it. can find themselves vulnerable. it's calling labels the hottest currency no one is using has past milestone after milestone but the rising value of the crypto currency has attracted both investors and criminals alike here's an idea of how much has gone into the pockets of hackers and elsewhere as we look at three
of the most infamous cases. this recent case involves mining market place nice hash who first alerted users something was wrong when visitors were greeted with a maintenance notice quickly discovered their nice hash wallets were completely empty and all of the bitcoin had been transferred to one single wallet totaling over sixty two million dollars the company's advice to users change your password. this involves a crypto currency exchange convinced it's multifaceted layers of security and hackable it created a system with multi signature while it's where keys were divided among owners and transactions had to be cosigned there even bold enough to state the era of commingle in customer bitcoin and all of this. it's kurt exposures is famous last words one hundred twenty thousand units were stolen from the exchange platform
valued then another round seventy two million dollars. now here's the low tech crypto fail a british man claims he accidentally threw a hard drive containing bitcoin private keys into a local rubbish dump along with his household waste he says he's now considering digging up that until well there could be eighty million dollars in there so that we have it the bitcoin community has been rattled by intelligent hacking exposing security flaws and even callous management these three cases alone including the final mishap have seen the loss of at least two hundred fourteen million dollars worth of bitcoin but despite the security issues that have plagued cryptocurrency is over the is the price of bitcoin continues to skyrocket there even predictions that if this continues by this rate this time next year could be worth more than the entire world's wealth one single bitcoin will equal it's a fifteen million dollars but the use of bitcoin is
a currency is still highly questionable at the moment it's being treated less like a currency and more like a store of value and of course we should be forgetting the volatile roller coaster trip it's taken to get here so hang on for the right if you're brave enough. thousand people have gathered in the center of demanding the impeachment of ukrainian president petro poroshenko as the rest of former georgian president turned ukrainian opposition figure because soccer's fairly doing a similar project to successfully the rest to supporters gathered outside the detention center where he's being. taught the spins because really is now on hunger strike was first detained on tuesday on suspicion of assisting a criminal organization or not occasion he tried to evade arrest by climbing onto the roof of his apartment block. he was seized by law enforcement officers a crowd of supporters pulled him from the police found his body later claimed that
