7:02 pm
but it doesn't seem to have had any impact on the the ongoing cease fire itself we understand that israel islamic jihad is saying that it has got to gain some agreements from israel in order to achieve this cease fire one of those agreements is related to israel's use of what's called targeted assassinations it was one of those targeted assassinations that resulted in the killing of an islamic jihad leader in gaza and his wife and that in fact was the spark that led to 48 hours of shelling on both sides islamic jihad is also saying that it's got israel to agree to stop shooting protesters at the border the gaza side of the border with israel and that it's got to make some concessions when it comes to the movement of goods and people backwards and forwards between israel and gaza now for its part israel says that that is not the case that its policies have not changed as far as gaza is concerned and as far as the palestinian armed groups are concerned israel's foreign

a gem june as more from day to day. we've been told daily that there are going to be substantive measures discussed and taken in parliament to recession's and really they have yet to really transpire the parliament continues to meet there are expectations by a multitude of protesters on the streets that they will hear perhaps some news that would indicate to them that the government is actually taking their concerns and their demands under consideration discussing them in parliament and yet that doesn't seem to be the case yesterday as well as today it had been expected that perhaps electoral reform would be taken up in the parliament that perhaps ways of combating corruption would be taken up in the parliament that doesn't seem to have happened it didn't happen yesterday despite the presence of the head of the united nations assistance mission here in iraq today we're told it has not happened as far
7:05 pm
as we can tell what we've been told by some officials is that there was a draft law that was completed by the president's office with regard to electoral reform that was then given to the head of parliament rather the cabinet and then it has gone to the president of parliament and that it will be discussed at some point we just don't know when and that's one of the reasons the people that day after day continue to protest despite the threat of violence that's one of the reasons they keep coming out. on the investigation into the 2014 down and downing of malaysia airlines flight m h 17 has found evidence that strongly connects russia to ukrainian fighters in the east investigators released phone call recordings they say are between the separatist fighters and high ranking russian officials in the weeks leading up to the attack russia's foreign ministry says the phone recordings are partly false or have not been confirmed so far 4 people including 3 russians have been charged with

7:10 pm
less enthusiastic about another recent development that had a major impact in northeast syria the unilateral withdrawal of u.s. forces from the region which led to a massive military operation by turkey against kurdish militia that had long been fighting alongside coalition forces. the kurds had forced i sold out of northern syria and assumed the governance of the land they captured losing an estimated $11000.00 troops in the process but now the kurds have been driven from many of their strongholds by the turkish military and with the u.s. protection stripped away they are turning to russia and syria for support on the ground at least the global coalition is beginning to brag meant the division intensified by president trumps decision to redeploy u.s. forces to guard oil fields in northwest syria we want to bring our soldiers home but we did leave soldiers because we're keeping the oil i like the oil we're deep

in the oil this unilateral shift in objectivism deep concern to a number of members in the coalition with some contending the seizing of oil facilities in a sovereign state contravenes geneva conventions in russia has an excellent propaganda point now president trump has made the u.s. mission in the kolisch and about not only securing the oil but taking the oil and profiting from it in moscow they're going to have a heyday accusing the united states and its allies of stealing oil i mean in the imperialist war it's a subject that will be at the heart of discussions at the u.s. state department this week all agree the situation in northeast syria has grown even more complicated but many members of the coalition argue this is a consequence of unilateral u.s. action the seizure of oil fields a particular point of division one that could threaten the unity of

7:13 pm
a lot of concern particularly among the u.s. european allies as well as among human rights groups who have said that essentially the white house made it possible for the turkish government to go after not just those fighters they believe who might be working in tandem with the p k k which is of course an outlaw terrorist group inside turkey but to also go after civilians as well and they say that this is a situation that is not just become complicated but is morally suspect as well. thanks a lot roslyn jordan live for us in washington. still ahead on al-jazeera a new ball of vaccine all set to roll out but some congolese are skeptical.
