11:22 am
leadership and the united states was already in evidence for many months one of those factors is the fact that the head of the p.l.o. mission which has just been closed down has been here in ramallah since he was withdrawn from the united states in may by palestinian president mahmoud abbas he was informed early on monday morning palestinian time by a u.s. official who told him that it was because of the palestinian pressure for israel to be brought before the international criminal court that this decision was being made with the palace in leadership sees this very much in the context of other u.s. measures against them in recent days in fact throughout the trump administration just recently though we have seen two hundred million dollars in aid slashed from u.s. funding to the palestinian authority we've seen the united states and entirely its funding of an rather the u.n. organization that aids palestinian refugees just this weekend twenty five million dollars taken away from palestinian hospitals in east jerusalem and so when we
11:23 am
spoke to the senior advisor to the palace in president not bill south he put this in that context does mr trump provide any answer absolutely not mr trump's ideas of destructive whatever remains of the peace process are one sided are extortionists. using economic pressure to deny any right for the palestinians and to deny the importance of international law and international institutions the palestinian leadership says rather than trying to bully them into adopting a different line in terms of their rejection of the trump peace plan before its publication rather the united states has adopted a grocery list of israeli demands this latest move being one of them we spoke to the secretary general of the p.l.o. side erekat on monday he said that they would pursue israel at the international criminal court with even greater vigor adding another charge to the list that of
11:24 am
the impending demolition of a bedouin village. in the occupied west bank he also said that after speaking to the un general assembly president abbas would return here reconvene the palestinian central council and start to enact real changes in the palestinian relationship with israel as a result of all that's happened since donald trump took power. hal of them going the as a fellow at the brookings institution who previously served as an advisor to the p.l.o. and he says the u.s. decision will further damage peace efforts even the eight cuts and diplomatic sanctions imposed on the palestinians and humanitarian sanctions imposed on on the palestinian people by this administration i think are likely to see more instability a lot of that frustration on the palestinian street will be channeled toward their own leadership for you know. that house in leadership has banked on a u.s. led peace process for all these many years for more than two or three decades and
11:25 am
there will be a lot of pressure on this leadership to come up with an alternative what is the plan now. and frankly the p.l.o. leadership doesn't have a plan b. if except perhaps to go back to international forums like the i.c.c. . but whether these reforms can be effective in actually securing the primary demand which is an end to the israeli occupation is very very uncertain aid organization save the children says more than which one child will die every minute from hunger in war zones the group is warning that starvation is now frequently used as a weapon of war the toy gate and the reports. in towns and cities across syria both his loyal to president bashar assad have long used a surrender or stop strategy against civilians in rebel held areas eastern go to is

now under government control but earlier this year four hundred thousand people would be feeds the many starving. a similar military strategy is being used in yemen both the fighters and government forces backed by the saudi u.a.e. coalition deliberately obstruct deliveries of food hunger has become a weapon of war and its use is more prevalent now than it anytime in the last twenty years. save the children has looked at child hunger in the world's ten worst conflicts it's found that four point five million children under five will need treatment for mt nutrition this year but five hundred ninety thousand a likely to miss out on the care they need and die of starvation and disease that's an average of sixteen hundred a day or one child a minute i think what we've seen this time is a buckin kind of
11:27 am
a two decades trend where global hunger has been decreasing for the first time in that time period is now increasing and complex is behind that and so. yes it's always been there but i think we're seeing a much more acute pinch on children across particularly eastern countries in some areas starvation is a military strategy in others war disrupts food production which in turn leads to hunger. in the democratic republic of congo years of fighting has displaced large numbers of people from their homes aid groups a three hundred thousand children are at risk conflicts disrupt people's ability to farm to keep their livestock jobs disappear it can lead to economic collapse that causes food prices to skyrocket so even people who are miles and miles and miles away from any active fighting or find that they are no longer able to afford the simplest of meals fighting in just ten countries is now responsible for overseeing
