handed over the reigns of fifty five american soldiers killed during the korean war a u.s. military plane was allowed into north korea on friday morning to pick up the remains and bring them to a base in south korea kim jong un had promised to return the bodies during his meeting with donald trump in june it's believed that the remains of five thousand three hundred u.s. soldiers all still in north korea more than sixty years after the fighting stopped friday marks the sixty fifth anniversary of the armistice that ended the conflict. is a research fellow in university he says this is a defining moment for north korea u.s. relations. if you look back the history of the united states you know normalizing relations with the former adversaries it usually begone with the return of discovery in return all the war remains of american soldiers like the u.s. that phenomenology sions process so this is
11:09 am
a good gesture they will be welcomed by the united states but i know it's crazy and you mean you need the intention to fulfill the agreement of the singapore something meeting and for north korea this is a this is a good signal that united states is committed to normalizing its up to put money relationship in north korea if that the new collision will be moving in the right direction the next item will be declaring the all fishel and the korean war since the one nine hundred fifty s. the when he was a state suspended by the army to so grim and north korea has been very aggressively demanding this to the united states but united states does not want to move to fast with face first if you know this is agrees to declare that korea war is also the over at that and they may weaken its military presence in south korea and china
11:10 am
wants to be on board in declaring the official end of the korean war so and so if the united states does not want to allow china to influence tween crees on the korean peninsula so for all these reasons the united states remains his tent but north korea really wants to move ahead with this idea. well one israeli settler is dead and two others injured after being stabbed in the occupied west bank now the attack happened in are them southwest of ramallah a palestinian the suspect was killed after entering the settlement and carrying out the attack let's get the very latest on all of this now with andrew symonds our correspondent in west jerusalem and of course the response to andrew has been quite swift and from the foreign minister. earlier surveyed believe a man who's actually he's now in charge of the defense ministry in fact that he's basically saying quite categorically that his response is the right response to
11:11 am
terror that's what he's saying he's saying that he will immediately prepare plans and push forward plans for the building of four hundred new homes in the occupied west bank in the same settlement the same internationally illegal settlement in which this attack took place now what happened was this it was a seventeen year old young palestinian man who. got into the settlement and confronted some settlers stabbing one man to death another man was seriously injured and a third person who was likely injured opened fire he said to save his own life he told investigators later and so we have two dead here and we have a situation a big security situation in this settlement called adams settlement which is south of ramallah in the occupied west bank
11:12 am
a big security situation there with more reinforcements of israeli soldiers going in to the occupied west bank as a result all this happening on friday when prayers across the country of the palestinian communities will be a tense affair because of the actions in gaza so. of course of course and we've also got a major israeli newspaper also quoting military sources about a report on those that have died along the guards or israel border and how their deaths will be treated regarding investigations or not in the future. that's right yes in the run up to friday prayers with hamas warning it could have venge the deaths of three of its fighters on wednesday in the attack by israeli soldiers in response to an incident in which an israeli soldier was shot earlier
11:13 am
that this is basically a tense situation and now we have how it's newspaper saying it understands expects the inquiry into the deaths of a hundred and fifty three palestinians in the demonstrations in gaza since march to clear any doubt about whether or not these shootings were either unintentional or all wrong in any way no one violated open fire orders is the understanding of the newspaper on this inquiry and there was no questioning of any doubt about whether there was a targeting of demonstrations that was not the case it said that there were operational mishaps that's the terminology however important to note here that this could not be the final word this would this report its internal report which is
11:14 am
carried out by a brigadier general will be passed up the chain of command and that could be a review but then nevertheless this is a definite it would seem according to how it's this leak it it does seem that. investigation has concluded that there will be no passing on any information to the military police for follow up action so in conclusion friday an important day always on the calendar of events in israel and the palestinians have been called by gaza to rise and demonstrate against what they say is israeli aggression israel is standing firm. no one wants the conflict of gaza to to really inflame again no one in really responsible positions it has to be said however accidents happen history the history of conflict in the middle east is littered with accidents that have happened the past which lead to
