12:07 pm

12:08 pm
fence that's joined andris simmons who's in west jerusalem forces begin with that is an astonishing statement being made by the defense minister in respect to the incident at the settlement of adam. yes sir victor lieberman defense minister not she referring to an increased security operation in the area in the wake of this attack actually sending out a tweet saying this word for word the right response to terror is to expand the settlement construction and now what he went on to announce was the was going to actively start the planning process for four hundred new homes in this illegal settlement of adam which is south of ramallah now it was attacked by a seventeen year old palestinian youth and he was shot dead by
12:09 pm
one of his victims the third of the settlers he attacked he's now seriously he's now in hospital with injuries but another israeli settler has serious injuries he is vive and a third israeli settler died from his injuries so there is tension in the occupied west bank but not on the level of gaza where the situation gets more tense by the hour on this day friday with friday prayers taking place soon and the demonstrations that hamas has called for mass demonstrations it's called for in gaza itself in response to the seemingly escalated events last week the this week sort of shall i say on wednesday when three have asked fighters was shot dead by israeli forces in
12:10 pm
response to an incident in which an israeli soldier was injured and of course underlip has touched upon this israeli newspaper report about the army not referring some of its soldiers and he further down you might say the line regarding the deaths of palestinian protesters just pardon me describing it as operational mishaps what does this mean. well that term is for really exonerates it would seem according to her it's newspaper it would exonerate the soldiers many of them snipers who shot dead a total of one hundred fifty three palestinian protesters since march in this investigation which is reported on by herit so i hasten to add we still don't have a response from the military to this report we put it to them and they are saying they will get back to us at the basically this investigation has gone through all
12:11 pm
of the complaints made and it is being taken it's taking place with the brigadier general in charge of that investigation but there are other inquiries taking place as well there has to be said this isn't the last word of the affair it will go up another rank in the stages of the military there could be further investigations further down the line so it's not it has to be said it is not the end of the case but it is an indication it would seem that there is a view that these soldiers were baying orders and they did not step out of line of course palestinians would view this differently and indeed other other observers feel differently about it so this is not helping the overall atmosphere in which as i said earlier how mass calling for mass demonstrations and of course the build up is already underway and the climate's certainly isn't ripe for agreements right now
12:12 pm
although there could be the hope is that the negotiations for a cease fire to continue cease fire. hope is that they will be successful but as i say the signals right now are quite dark indeed will work continue to mulder events with you through the day thanks andrea. now the remains of fifty five american soldiers killed during the korean war are on their way home on the sixty fifth anniversary of the armistice which ended the fighting a u.s. military plane was allowed to land in north korea on friday morning the gesture follows conjunctions promise to donald trump now it's estimated the remains of five thousand three hundred war dead are still to be handed over. is a research fellow at the 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 the american soldiers like the u.s. that's now on the malaysians process so this is a good gesture they will be welcomed by the united states but i know it's crazy jane 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's history agreement north korea has been very aggressively demanding this to the united states but united states does not want to
12:14 pm
move to fast with this first e-file you know this has agreed to declare that korea war is also the over that name may weaken its military presence in south korea and china 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 still ahead here on al-jazeera one human rights advocates all say nicaragua has become a country in an undeclared state of siege. and conflicting accounts on when cracks were spotted in the dam the collapsed in laos should evacuations have been ordered have a story on the other side of the break. how

independent kurdish enclave in northern syria but also we have been is seeing a situation in often after it was under control of the russians but turkey and russia corporators and p.y. idea was totally out of the game after this engagement between russia and turkey and a similar thing occurred in membership since june for an engagement between united states and turkish military forces also turkish officials haven't stated this offer surely yet but in that at town of. turkey establishments just base right across the u.s. military base this hasn't been officially announced yet this is what we learned as al-jazeera from sources in so i can tell that p. y. d. is kind of feeling out of the game also. so the united states who have been promoting pew id as a counter counter eisel element in the region has been disturbed by the
12:21 pm
iranian influence in among the members as well so this is something like the united states is also trying to discipline people id and p. y. d. is trying to find other partners for itself in the region but i have to remind that the mask is the syrian regime is not eligible to is not free to decide by itself there is russian influence there is iranian influence and no one has given up on each other yet but as a journalist following the region i must remind that all the players are trying to gain time but within a short period of time baby probably by the end of summer we will be seeing how new mitch corp is successful or not and then the united states probably will be picking its partner for northern syria basically in the kurdish enclave see what happens in the coming days and thank you. celebrations of update in yemen as to who the rebels
