gapes what more did the u.s. national security adviser have to say and how much of a test is this for the biden administration. well this is going to be a very big test for the bye to administration maybe the 1st big international diplomacy test that he fears facing in his presidency a little more on that later but 1st you're getting a sense that here in washington that there is growing concern about the situation there in israel that we've been seeing over the last few days. biden's national security adviser jake sullivan had a call on sunday with israel israeli counterpart and according to a readout from the white house about that call sullivan told that his israeli counterpart that the u.s. is very concerned about the violence that is taking place he said that there are serious concerns about the violent confrontations and that the u.s. wants to ensure colm and deescalate tensions and promote deescalation of
3:05 am
violence that we've been seeing also sullivan telling israeli officials that the u.s. it has serious concerns and according to the readout from the white house about the potential palestinian evictions palestinian families from their land in their homes in the shade gerard neighborhood and he said that there are he expressed that to the israeli officials that that the u.s. has some serious concerns about that what was not part of this readout or at least what was not laid out in this readout from the call was any direct condemnation of israel's actions by the united states at least not from this readout clearly israel is a very strong ally of the united states and whenever we've seen situations like this the u.s. usually treads very lightly when it comes to any sort of condemnation when it comes to any violence their bottom line though is that we could expect to hear more from
3:06 am
the president himself perhaps as early as this week because clearly the situation there is gaining attention by the hour here in washington on the life in the washington d.c. gate thank you. well israel is facing mounting international criticism over its heavy police response and those planned defections in shape there are people in the u.k. gathered across london manchester and birmingham in solidarity with the palestinians they've been out on the streets calling for sanctions against israel. 2 and pope francis to address the violence in occupied east jerusalem during his sunday message on the vatican he called in israel to respect the multi religious identity of the city say will come but if you go let it political place you own it i am following with particular concern the events that are happening in jerusalem i pray that it will be a place of an encounter and not a violent clashes a place of priya and pace i invite everyone to say that she had solutions so that the multi religious and multi cultural identity of the holy city is respected and
3:07 am
brotherhood can prevail violence only breeds violence stop the clashes well mounted the l code is a writer and poet the video of his sister confronting a jewish settler went viral this week speaking from a protest in nazareth he said palestinians are under constant attack. and i and everybody in the neighborhood continue. today invaders our neighbor's house they invaded and they had bags of clothes they had been in constant contact palestinian residents today 5 minutes away from the neighborhood. near the hebrew university so we are under the constant threat of that lower violence in jerusalem because that's what happens when you put sellers in a palestinian neighborhood they are indigenous people this is a very tiresome situation it's a very sleepy sleep was the situation but it's also i think you a sense that we have been reporting 9 years including 7 days there's a big gun crime in our lands. and we know that we must be persistent and we must be
