11:02 am
to the mountainous province we'll bring you more as we get the details two palestinians have been found dead after shelling by israeli forces in gaza followed an explosion that injured four israeli soldiers along the border israeli jets launched a series of air strikes on a number of sites in the southern gaza strip its military blames hamas for saturday's explosion several palestinians were injured in the israeli raids today's incident on the girls' the street border was severe we respond appropriately or so my wishes for a quick recovery to the wounded are a force that has the latest from west jerusalem. well the health ministry in gaza has confirmed the discovery of two bodies east of rafa to seventeen year olds who were killed in a tank fire it seems late on saturday night they had already said the gazan health ministry that two had been injured in that incident what they described as a gathering of people east of rougher down in the south of the gaza strip the
11:03 am
israeli media reported that the group had been trying to breach the border fence and that is when the tank fire started israeli military is also saying that its strikes in response to an explosion on the border fence which seriously wounded two israeli soldiers moderately wounded two others that that response that amounted not to six targets being struck but eighteen six was the initial number it's now been revised up to eighteen those targets they say including a tunnel that was being dug towards israeli territory military compounds a weapons manufacturing site of some kind israel is saying that it holds hamas responsible for everything that goes on inside gaza and accountable for these sorts of incidents there was also a rocket that was fired out of gaza that struck a civilian home inside israel no injuries came of that hamas is saying that it holds israel entirely responsible for the current escalation that we've seen so far
11:04 am
no further strikes since what we saw late on saturday night but it is notable that the tensions along the border have been on the increase since donald trump's declaration that the u.s. sees jerusalem as the capital of israel have been protests a lot of live fire into gaza from the israeli side during some of those protests there have been fatalities involved as well and as well as that the israeli defense chief has warned that the humanitarian crisis inside gaza needs to be addressed reportedly or it could lead to conflict between israel and hamas so still a tense that situation a day after the start of what is the most serious such clash since the twenty fourteen war. the stuff of a duty is secret general of the palestinian national initiative and a former palestinian information minister he says international pressure needs to be put on israel to end the violence the only resolution is to end the occupation
11:05 am
the only resolution is the system of apartheid and allow palestinians to finally be free let me remind you that during the last three months since mr brown declared his her orrible position about jerusalem we had peaceful demonstrations taking place in the west bank and gaza but these peaceful demonstrations were met with severe israeli violence no less than twelve people have been killed in gaza by israeli soldiers who were shooting at them while they were peacefully demonstrating the same happened in the west bank we lost also more than twenty people so far with the israeli military gunfire and more than five thousand people have been injured during peaceful demonstrations saw israel is attacking peaceful demonstrations the world does not do anything they do not pressure israel to stop using this terrible violence and then it is skillets and my word is that unless there is immediate international pressure to on israel to stop the use of violence and to in the siege of gaza we could see another horrible attack on gaza another horrible war that
11:06 am
could take the lives of thousands of people including hundreds of good russia has dismissed u.s. allegations that thirteen of its nationals ran a secret operation to sway the twenty sixteen presidential election in donald trump's favor the russian foreign minister was immediately challenge by u.s. national security advisor mcmaster but shortly after trump tweeted that mcmaster had forgotten to say the election results were not impacted or changed by the russians and jordan has more. the munich security conference often focuses on weapons of mass destruction regional war and the threat from rogue nations and groups but at this year's meeting the conflict is between russia and the us which is now and died thirteen russian citizens for allegedly interfering in the two thousand and sixteen presidential race the russian foreign minister sergey lavrov called the indictments irrelevant. so until we hear the facts everything else is
11:07 am
just blather the indictment says otherwise the defendants allegedly were promoting donald trump's candidacy and undermining that of his democratic rival hillary clinton. one example an anti trump protest march in new york shortly after his election allegedly organized by the defendants and not by ordinary americans the allegation is that the russians were using the anti trump protest to cover their tracks in supporting him the special counsel robert muller has indicted thirteen russian citizens and three companies for allegedly interfering in the two thousand and sixteen elections according to the unsealed indictment the accused allegedly conspired from two thousand and fourteen until now to interfere with the u.s. political and electoral processes including the two thousand and sixteen election the special counsel alleges that the group posed as americans and controlled social
11:08 am
media accounts focusing on divisive social and political issues one important point the indictment does not allege that anyone in the donald trump campaign colluded actively with the russians the u.s. national security advisor h r mcmaster told conference delegates the rumors of russian interference are now fact the united states will expose and act against those who use cyberspace social media and other means to advance campaigns of the. formation subversion and. the former russian ambassador to the united states long accused of using his post to interfere in u.s. affairs told delegates the indictments are nothing more than fear mongering and whether they were. simply. being used for reasons. rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington's

hillary mann leverett is a former u.s. state department and national security council official she says the indictment shows concern about a resurgence of russia's cold war tactics there's nothing new about russian or american interference in each other's domestic politics or in the domestic politics of a range of other countries this is something you know going back to one nine hundred fifty s. when many prominent americans were fired from their jobs and blacklisted for suspected ties to commie to the communist soviet union so there's nothing really new about it i think the new dynamic now here is an american political elite concern about resurgent russia particularly russia's power under president putin to exercise its influence whether we see it in the middle east in syria in other places china and perhaps here in the united states when the united states is arguably at a very weak point where many people in the united states would consider this is
11:10 am
right now a very divided and open and vulnerable to russian influence so i think the concern is very much about the resurgence of russian power and how the united states can come to terms with that. thirty five refugees are heading for the united states after leaving an australian run prison camp on the pacific island nation of now it's part of a controversial resettlement deal reached between australia's government and the obama administration the men are mostly afghan pakistani or are now a prison camp as part of a straight is hardline policy on blocking refugees from entering by boat eleven somali refugees held in militia controlled areas of libya for years have returned home they were evacuated by the somali government and the un refugee agency refugees of told of the abuse they experienced in camps there is a major transit point for migrants from africa in the middle east who are trying to get to you. there are more young somalis being held now in libya some of my friends

11:18 am
might make us all proud. trumps comments came after was revealed the f.b.i. received a tip off last month that the suspect had quote again desired to kill and access to guns the agency admitted on five that agents failed to investigate further the nineteen year old charged with the murders had been expelled from the school he was also known to local police. students from the school targeted in wednesday's shootings have rallied for tighter gun control as they're angry that the suspect nicholas cruz could buy an automatic weapon legally despite his troubling behavior survive of the shooting had this message for u.s. politicians if you think about that from coming from she said when she woke her that was i think you know i think that i was down and really it was you know i have very much as you know is taking donations from the n.r.a. shame on you. about an hour's drive away in miami people

attending a gun show said file could not be blamed for what happened at the school the company in charge of the event expressed sympathy over the shooting spree displaying posters saying they meant no disrespect or insensitivity. these events that we have a silver gun shows are prescheduled years in advance and these venues are are you know reserved for the gun show in years in advance this is a reminder pinion not necessarily a gun problem but more a mental health problem. just on the national security correspondent for newsweek magazine says the focus on possible f.b.i. as isn't helpful i think that the attention to what the f.b.i. did or didn't do is really misplaced here in the local police we're very familiar with mr cruz and many answered many calls and complaints through where he was living the f.b.i. investigates federal crimes was mr cruz committing
11:20 am
a federal crime or plotting to create a federal crime no he was not so although the f.b.i. screwed up big time absolutely i think that focusing on it and especially the partisan attacks on f.b.i. director ray are really misplaced. he's not going to resign over this these attacks are designed to undermine further undermine the f.b.i. which is a lead investigating agency. connections between the trump administration and russian interference in the two thousand and sixteen elections and that's where these complaints are calling from they're all going from republicans who want to further undermine the authority of the f.b.i. that's what this is all about the f.b.i. does not have a jurisdiction in the school shootings that's a local police matter furthermore it seems to me the question should be raised about why teenagers are able to buy assault weapons or anyone able to buy an assault weapon there's been a fire at one of tibet's most sacred temples videos have been posted on social
