6:13 pm
in response to palestinian setting a barricades to prevent ultra right wing jewish groups are entering at least 18 people have been arrested as well. is really police have now left the area, but let's find out more of what's going on right now and what the scene is or john hallman, he's joining us from occupied east jerusalem. john yeah. yes, we're here at the damascus gate, which is one of the main routes you'd probably see actually behind people travel to get to the i like so most compound and at the moment everything is calm within that compound of, within the alexa most comes out of the of the scene here with his heading towards it, obviously, but disturbances earlier that you were talking about the read. what has happened is the, is very the government and the palestinian government. putting out statements about those are those disturbances, the confrontation i should say before or partly,
6:14 pm
bennett, who is the israeli prime minister is said the security forces continue. freedom to act in any way that will bring security to the citizens of his rope. they say we tried to restore tom and the palestinian president, a spokesman for his office, said this is an attempt to legitimize the temperament spatial division of the acts . most the today, the of foreign ministry are all so at which is the custodian of the most saying that is it was making steps to change the status quo. and what that's really referring to is, as you said, the presence of her own for right wing jewish groups heading in to the most and what the palestinian government see as an attempt to sort of creeping judah is ation of that space. so john, we know that there were at least 20 palestinian injuries, and there were a number for rest. at least 18 palestinians were arrested as well. what type of resistance that the palestinians put up to prevent the ultra right groups from
6:15 pm
entering the deluxe or mosque compound. but as you said, there were barricades and the israeli forces said that there were also stones and rocks that they needed to remove to let the jewish visitors go in just a bit of the bigger picture i suppose about base and why we've got to this point so the acts of mazda is open to norm muslims, on certain days of the week, apart from friday and saturday, actually. so this sunday was the 1st day in the jewish holy festival of pass over that norman loose lim, visitors could go into the most compound local mosque itself in the morning, and that's why hundreds of these are to right reduced, gathered to do so. and as usually happens, it's not just now this happens, a lot of they go and visit, they went in with
6:16 pm
a police escort to protect them. but at the moment, tensions are even higher than normal. that's because of a variety of reasons. one of those is a spate of attacks within israel of let 14 people dead. and so is re me rates into the occupied west bank, which have left a similar number of people bed. and on top of all of that, there have been calls over the last week by a small extremist is great for sacrifices to be made within the alex a compound which is so revered by jews as the site of the original temple. that's obviously been very a philanthropy is ready, government has said that that's not gonna happen. so schools are actually made every year and every year they say that it's not going to happen and it doesn't happen. couple members of the group have been arrested, but because of the already high tensions, obviously, those schools the right that the palestinian muslim community. and it's been a lot of worry about that. a lot of worried that those sacrifices could have
6:17 pm
happened and coons at the more mission to go to the most and go to the compound during the holy month of ramadan to protect it. so all of that is less tension high at the moment. okay, john, thank you so much. john. home is reporting for us from occupied east jerusalem. so just to pick up on what john was saying about the locks i'm off compound, it's one of the most volatile flashpoints, unoccupied through them. for muslims, it contains 2 of his lands, holy sites, they'll mosque, and the dome of the rock, jews call a temple mount. revering it as their 1st temple. they pray at the western wall in 1967, jordan and israel agreed that the walk for islamic trust as it's known controls the compounds. while israel controls external security only muslims are allowed to pray in the mosque while jews can pray outside the compound at the western wall, the works allows non muslims to visit the compound 5 days per week under its supervision. tourists are allowed in. the palestinians are concerned that the
6:18 pm
site's muslim identity is under threat by the ultra right wing religious groups who are increasingly entering the site under is really protection to attempt to pray their illegally. during his easter sunday address, pope francis appealed for free access to the holy sites in jerusalem for all communities she apache immediately and the letter may that be peace in the middle east racked by years of conflict and division on this glorious day. let's ask for peace upon jerusalem of peace upon those who love her. christians, jews, muslims alike, may israelis, palestinians, and those who dwell in the holy city together with the pilgrims experience the beauty of peace and enjoy free access to the holy places with mutual respect for the rights of each. let's continue this conversation will tell me i was how there was a palestinian is really politician and leader of the ballads party. he's also chairman
6:19 pm
of the joint list faction in the can. i said he's joining us from java. thanks for speaking to us on al jazeera. i know you're speaking to us from joshua, but i know that you were visiting baylock's almost compound compound over the past few days. just just tell me what you saw there and what your assessment is of the situation. good evening going for so far. i would like to use this chance to get going again to all of the people who are celebrating easter and i'm all done coding for all. and i would like to join the brains of francis for these justice for all and for ending the occupation of your patients in ukraine and also in palestine. what has been going lately in law, some austin generally in a occupied jerusalem? is that enough that the bandits government, which has been losing part of its coalition and becoming much weaker than what it was before, they are trying to keep their power and to keep their seats as
6:20 pm
a government on the account of the palestinian blood. this is exactly what's going on the all this violence we are see all over the west bank. and if you will send them is that bennett has decided to keep himself in control on the account of the, of the palestinian blood. and this is why we are seeing all this violence from a band for us that he and he's a very holy moss, this holy month story. and this is a month for pray for fast the right for worship. ok. so when the prime minister, what some of them for us, when the prime minister says that is really for says have quote free reign to continue operations to quote, maintain security according to him. i mean, as a member of the is really, can i set yourself a chairman of the joint list, how to respond to this? this is, this is an existent, it should be also added to a few days before when he said for the israeli and jewish citizens to carry their weapons and use them meaning against any
6:21 pm
r up or any palestinian. anyone who would feel afraid of anything is allowed with the support of the israeli prime minister to shoot out because he thought, afraid or something. this is a very good test, drove it extreme reece. this is prime minister, lead by the extreme right is we're trying to give it himself, but his government in control is regardless of all the violence that they are using and it has it. now, this is on what it is still the age of me. this is why we're not seeing the regular work of the keenest because they are on holiday still the age of may. but we are trying also to be with our people all over in order to help defending our people. i suppose that i'm trying to understand from you is how are you doing that again, as, as the chairman of the joint, a joint list, you are
6:22 pm
a parliamentarian. how will you do that? we are asking this riley government to stop playing with fire. the lid this side, which is trying to change this back to school in the locks on the most holy place for muslims all over the world is the israeli government. what we are asking for is just to stop there trying in order to change the status quo. in the last time i log on will allow freedom of religion and worship for every one to did. they also prevented the christians from going to their churches. they decided that on the very voted, a small number of christians are allowed to get to the church 500 people and surrounded the general only 1001. on the same time, the israeli government, which is preventing muslims on christian from freedom of religion. they are what there are forces in order to bring extreme national religious use to
6:23 pm
play in the lap so most illegally. the same government is preventing muslims and christians from pray. and then with this on me trying to bring this notion that it just looks into a lot of we are asking this is riley government just to stop playing with fire and stop trying to check the status quo on the left. almost. that's all. ok. and let's look at some of the other reaction that has come through. i mean, we heard from the jordanian foreign ministry who put out a statement on sunday saying that israel's measures to change the status quo, which is what you're saying or a dangerous escalation. and israel bears full responsibility for the consequences. does the statements go far enough for you? i think that egypt and jordan can play much stronger role than what they are doing . the not statements are good, but they have enough good relations to convince this government to stop this violence. we the palestinians,
6:24 pm
we have the interest to stop this violence. we are the victims of violence. we don't have any interest in this violence. we want to stop it, but the main reason for violence is this continuous and trying every day of the israeli government of changing the one the locks on. the main problem is occupation that the main problem with what all, what we are see in the west bank, in gusta and in east jerusalem is as i know, a few patients and this solution must be ending the israeli occupation. we are seeing what's going on there at the national level was all of these people asking for ending that actual hope you're patient of your brain. we want all these people also to see, look your patient in palestine and to do the same. we believe in peace, justice for all, and we want these justice and equality for all the people all over, including by the stadium. done. so. how do you expect the, the next couple of weeks to play out?
6:25 pm
at least it all got to do with disraeli government. if they decide on escalating the situation or not, i was a few times in general. so i sat with the youth, palestinian, you there in babylon, within the last, almost all over the city. we are not interested in ones. we don't want to see this one. we are asking those to stop their violence. let's all those who are doing the escalations are the slot, is very policies we are in what and in the most holy month of the grandmother. the vast majority of the people wants to use this month for fasting up for a brain and for worship. this is what we want in order to live normally and, and continue our danny worship. we just need the israelis to stop the violence. that's all. ok, well leave it there. thank you so much, sammy, i was harder for speaking to us from jeff. thank you. the 50000000 people have died
6:26 pm
worldwide due to the pandemic, and that's 9000000 more than previously thought that's according to a yet to be released. world health organization study reported in the new york times. the newspaper says it's been delayed because of injections from india for 1000000 of the additional deaths half, and they're making the total 8 times as many as efficiently recorded areas. karlinski is an economist who is advised the world health organization on covered $1000.00 mortality rates. he says, the true global dot toll is actually difficult to calculate. big issue in the many countries are differ and how they certify a coal with deaf and even a covert case. and they of course differ in their capacity to even just administer the test. so the number of reported corporate death that you might see on the john hopkins dash blogger on the w h. o. that is simply on comparable between countries, especially countries from different continents or development level. this is the
6:27 pm
exact reason why w, a commission expert with the i'm a member of which is to look at sort of a simpler measure but much more robust measure for comparison across countries across time. would you have access mortality? unfortunately, when i put them in psych, deaths are above and beyond what you would expect under normal time. you know, you know, usual day in the car. 100 people die during play time. it might be $150.00 people and the 50 plus people are what we call accept mortality. i really hope that a silver lining, if you can call this condemn it would be for governments to vitally improve their vitamin patient system. many countries in latin america have been undergoing this reform in the past few years, which give us really an unparalleled insight into what's been going on there. but many countries in se, asia pacific and africa still register only
6:28 pm
a fraction of total death. still heads on the al jazeera news, our decision time in france, that will be macro or the pen. who can convince voters they are. the one fear is of an environmental catastrophe. after a change, you're carrying fuel things opportunities? yeah. the colorado avalanche clench the top seed in the western conference, lia will show you how they did it. ah. with a raging sandstone through libby, ears lifted temperatures to the middle forties, and that heat and sand is moving eastward through egypt in the next 24 hours are yet but one hot sandy day. and then it cools down when swings round behind it to a north. wesley, this lot is all moving eastward. so temperature is on the levant, going to be in the middle thirties near reco values are prices like jerusalem,
6:29 pm
beirut amount, but probably not breaking the record. the sand test be pretty widespread, it's dispersing. the wind is dropping. by the time you get to mug, never take to tuesday. you'll know the temperature dropped back by about 8 to 10 degrees. we see showers coming into the coast of syria and throughout turkey. that was possibly orange sky will turn into shower instead, but it still hot in baghdad, answer q 8. and doha, without any significant wind, by this time back, that's forecast remains at 37, maybe 36, which is 6 or 7 above the average for that has been consistent in baghdad for the last year or 2. well above average temperatures, a brief look then to end at the rain situation in southern africa, there are warnings out, but they have been degraded, downgraded so along the coast of the eastern cape. i'm beyond to mozambique. it doesn't look like heavy rain in crossville natal and including durbin, the showers, are increasingly light to draw a picture. ah,
6:30 pm
ah, he's seen a family man politicized by the forces of nature filmed over 4 years. i came in pharma documents, his struggle for his community survival and built a template for global action on climate change. kiss c lou, the climate diaries, a witness documentary on how to 0. i don't get a get it. ah ah
6:31 pm
ah ah ah hello again. the top stories on al jazeera, the sour russian deadline for ukrainian forces to lay down their arms and leave. marya paul has now passed, ukraine's prime minister says the remaining forces in maria, pull the fading and the flying, the russian demand. palestinian worshippers have been forcibly dispersed. almost compound. 20 people have been injured. at least 18 have been arrested. is really police have now left theory of 15000000 people have died worldwide due to the coven, 1900. pandemic, 9000000 more than previously thought. that's according to a yet to be released. world health organization study reported in the new york
6:32 pm
times. nepalese government is asking workers abroad to deposit their money and domestic bang says concerns mount about dwindling foreign exchange reserves the government and says it's not facing an economic crisis. like sir lang come or miata limbo reports from catman to in this bustling market in downtown. got my do its business of usual shopping crowds doors at the beginning of nepal, new year. but experts was behind all the activity and economic crisis is looming. the economic recovery that we have seen is much less compared to other countries, you know, who, which were similar to hit by. and for example, last 2 years are both on the one percent compared to our normal long term ava's off, you know, 9 percent that we should have got to in 2 years time. during the pandemic,
6:33 pm
the number of tourists fails. the amount of money sent home by napoleon working abroad, also dropped significantly. nepalese international vit isn't particularly high, but as ballooning imports and high oil prices depleted foreign currency reserves experts warn the country could be headed towards an economic crisis. if the government doesn't step up in time and there are other pressures, i'm a local guy. there's been a hike and oil prices leader of petrol, that cost around $100.00 rupees. now, cost $160.00, with these nepal central bank has taken action to manage import and increased foreign exchange with some kind of the challenge in the economy. particularly because of the import of some of the items. for example, the vehicles and the petroleum products, which are on a large portion of the board in nepal. so how we can manage that? that's one of the issues that is struggling in the present
6:34 pm
context. reducing by dia, import cars and heavy duty equipment to nepal, and she says it's important for businesses to work with the government, the central bank and business community. we being completely him import oriented economy. we have a huge trade in balance because we nothing being exported from here or at least of a little being exported from here. so every small change in the world on the globe impacts. and that is why we have these, you know, these panic situations every now and then as an absorbed economic shop. experts say it needs to act fast to avoid a full blown crisis from a limber as the ra cut and do. well, let's take a closer look at that economic situation in a poll would look as toady. he's the director of the business conglomerate reliance group. paul, he's joining us from coming to welcome to al jazeera sir. so is the poll heading towards an economic crisis. i don't think paul is heading to an economic crisis. i
6:35 pm
think the reporting little bit out of context because of the remedy has dropped in the fall. it was not dropped as significantly as want to report as reported. i don't on my feet of them this year compared to your year. and actually if you look at the present mac level is actually 6 percent higher. where we are going to be. the problem is our, and our prices because of the commodity prices around the world increasing and a huge factor on our foreign reserves. and that is something that is reality and above up on those up all. and it was a 7 month which is quite low. and that is giving a report the concern for the economy, central bank, which i started putting limits now on various items coming into tell us more about why foreign reserves have been depleting and the country is heavily dependent on import goods and services. all are good, including food items,
6:36 pm
are people who are the right and imported from a neighboring country, china and india, and hadn't such, high dependence on importance is creating the problem. if the quantity stayed the same and the pricing the same, i can, if i won't have such a huge problem. however, because the geopolitical problems as one of the shipping costs increasingly around the world, we're seeing that the price of all these commodities have increased dramatically. which is now creating a huge, huge, better on up or to the okay. and what about the steps that the government has has taken so far? yes. so on the central bank of the depth try to restrict importance using various measures, such as putting 100 margin and limiting lp things of the items. and that will have a benefit in the sense that, of course, money will be paid, but the pressures on missionary prices,
6:37 pm
because things are getting more here of people to buy and above the measure, thinking about the country bank. if talk to them right now, they need to look at the government to look at the long term solution. if they're going to get out of the problem and not having the recurring every few months. and what about the, the, i mean you're, you're joining us from, from, can i do itself just give us a sense of how people are feeling about this. i going to be pressure in the fall are up and do it right now. there's a huge dodge in prices on basic commodities such as patrol such as food items and the amount of heavily lakes. although we are not involved in the job, all the heavy lifting down what happens around the world. shipping costs going up cause problems for us because we are dependent on 40 percent about good come from china and the price is the rate going up. causes an issue here that you bring in war has caused by there on the was going up and a big it's important to olive oil. our own 12 percent of our import is patrol and
6:38 pm
diesel and these kinds of pressure will have direct impact on the local lead book and in the okay, we'll leave it there. thank you so much for joining us from. come and do look as toady. thank you. thank you so much. now it is the 3rd anniversary of the easter sunday bombings in sure lanka. anti government professor has joined with families of the victims, calling for justice. 279. people were killed in a series of suicide bombings, churches on tow towels with police blamed on to local muslim groups with links to isolate, shouting in that sadness. it has been 3 years since those ducks. still people are asking for justice. somebody thought, since everybody is uniting and asking for change, for people to be held accountable, we felt it was appropriate that we bring the families here. and i have always
