6:03 am
a 3rd of them were civilians. the israeli government said it's been targeting members of the p r. j to senior leaders of the armed group have been killed. the p r j retaliated by firing hundreds of rockets into israel. most were shot down or blown up. we'll speaking from to run the secretary general of palestinian islamic jihad explained its demands. z is limited, you had, lays down it's conditions number one to your lie at all the palestinians. secondly, imposed aunt on the enemy to release our brother who has been on hunger strike, halle louder. and that has also put another additional conditioned wishes to release shift by some al sadi. the suffered alkaloid has more from garza, this fire is still holding. now the even local governmental offices
6:04 am
are public offices also announced that they will re open their doors for public universities also announced that they will open early, open their doors that they close ariel because, because of those collision for force, they will open their lords for students also, the municipality of garza and other municipalities are also the announced that they will deploy on send their equipment to remove the rabble on try to do the initial assessment for the destruction or cut us. foreign ministry says it supports if it's to stop the violence. had that had one in there and they did, did canada. and i thought he, because of this renewed aggression the could tarry role was again as it always is through contacts made by the good, sorry, ministry of foreign affairs headed by his excellency, the minister of foreign affairs and deputy prime minister with the various parties with the palestinian factions in garza with the relevant international parties and
6:05 am
with the israeli party, with the aim to stop this aggression and stop the continuous bloodshed. in fact could tar supports various international efforts in the framework of reaching the truce. that took place today. natasha and i am reports from wister wrestling. as far as israel is concerned, this operation is over. it is saying that the military said a short time ago that it used helicopters, fighter jets and arm drones, were among the tools it used to target is some that you had across the gaza strip. it has thanks egypt for its role in mediating the cease fire, but says if attacks continue into israel, it will not hesitate to quote, act forcefully and says it will take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that the daily lives of israelis will not be disrupted earlier this evening, the prime minister year le pete went to the central military base in tel aviv to
6:06 am
assess the situation. he had said earlier that the objectives of the so called operation breaking dawn had been fulfilled and that there was no need for the operation to continue. what were these objectives from the israeli strategic mindset? the objective was to neutralize islam of jihad with most, if not all of the senior leadership being killed, as well as the feeling that a kind of divide had been created between is found that she had. and her mass which governs garza with hamas remaining on the sidelines. there was a concern that if this operation was protracted and the death toll continued to rise, that perhaps hamas might enter the fray. it appears for now that that has not happened . ali ob nima is the director of the electronic intifada. a website which focuses on palestinians under occupation. he says, palestinians and goes a con,
6:07 am
live normal lives, because israel isn't held accountable. people in gaza don't get to go back to anything like normal because they're still living under israel's age. that is a form of silent violence against every man, woman and child in gaza. 24 hours a day, $365.00 days the 15 years. so unfortunately it's fragile. this is going to happen again. i can't tell you if it's going to be in a day a week, a month or a. yeah. but it's going to keep happening because israel enjoys total impunity for its crimes against the palestinian people and not just impunity, but full and active support. remember, it was bombing gaza with weapons provided by the united states by the european union, by canada, who all stood by israel. and these are the same countries that the sending billions
6:08 am
of dollars of weapons to ukraine, supposedly to resist occupation and invasion. but here they are helping israel perpetrate, occupation invasion and tara, against a civilian population is really just routinely call these regular massacres. if palestinians mowing the lawn idea big, you have to massacre them, kill a bunch of them. so they get the message that they should just surrender and accept that faith. and it's fully supported by the united states, the european union, canada, and sadly, now you know, it pains me to say a number of arab regimes that have fully normalized, that ties with this, frankly, murderous regime all to other news. now the u. s. senate has passed a sweeping package with $430000000000.00 covering climate tax and healthcare.
6:09 am
democrats say it's a big victory for you as president joe biden. $370000000000.00 will go towards climate projects, making it the largest investment in the sector in u. s. history. rosalyn jordan reports. after round the clock debate on saturday and sunday, the u. s. senate passed the last major economic bill of jo biden's agenda, the inflation reduction act. on this vote. the age of 50, the nase of 50, the senate being equally divided. the vice president votes in the affirmative and the bill as amended is past. the bill will raise $430000000000.00 for a wide range of priority, improving health care coverage, tackling climate change by investing in electric cars and renewable energy, imposing a mandatory 15 percent income tax on corporations,
6:10 am
and cutting the deficit. this bill will kick start the iraq of affordable clean energy in america. it's a game changer. it's a turning point, and it's been a long time incoming. the bill had been considered dead until democratic leaders negotiated a compromise name with senators jo, mansion and kiersten cinema that guaranteed their support. senate republicans offered amendment after amendment in hopes of destroying the democrats unity. they blocked a plan to require private health insurers to charge no more than $35.00 a month for insulin, but that wasn't enough to derail the overall bill. after the vote, senate republicans issued a statement calling the bill a disaster. earlier on sunday and just out of cobit isolation, president joe biden signal to reporters, he thought the bill would pass. now it's up to the house of representatives to
6:11 am
approve the bill before biden consigned it into law. that vote is tentatively set for friday. rosalind jordan l jazeera washington nice and i as a senior associate with the rocky mountain institute and american nonprofit, the promote sustainable energy. he joined me line from washington. d. c. thanks very much for joining me. nice. and 1st of all, they were, as we heard in that story, they were a lot of compromises to get this bill pass is this is significant as democrats and making out absolutely. i've been talking to my colleagues and they take members, members of the staff, and every single person says the same thing. this bill is truly a game changer. 3 independent studies have all come out demonstrating that this will reduce emissions in the u. s. by 40 percent compared to 2005 levels. ready so the next decade, which is essentially doubling the emissions reductions in the united states. and it
6:12 am
also provides key economic tipping points and pretty much every single major sector of the us economy. and in your tickler sectors where that are high emissions. so $370000000000.00. can you explain exactly where that is going. ready absolutely, a big chunk of that funding is going towards clean electricity, 0 carbon clean electricity across the. ready board solar, wind, geothermal, nuclear, you name it. there's also substantial funding for investment in manufacturing. that's one of the big chunks of this bill to ensure that the united states can manufacture the pond, a mental components of the energy transition and the united states. that includes again, solar, wind batteries and all of this, the smaller stuff, components that go into those systems. there's also substantial investments for communities that traditionally have posted fossil fuel communities as well as a number of other investments in the industrial sector in the agricultural sector.
6:13 am
and a grab bag of other priorities that are critical driving down us emissions. the you with, you know, through john kerry, they've been trying to persuade other countries to ramp up the, if it's to combat climate change. but until now, you know, really has been able to back it up with its own action. so what message does this bill thing to those other countries that they've been trying to persuade? yeah, tom, this is the us officially putting this money. whereas now this, at the end of the day to reduce emissions and economy can just reduce the fossil fuel consumption in the high emission consumption, you actually have to build a full new, clean energy technology. and what this bill does is an investment built. it says ok what physically have to happen in the world in order for. ready an economy to be robust and resilient without fossil fuels. and so what it locks a lot of new sectors that really haven't been shackled to the fossil fuel economy
6:14 am
are very, very long time investments and again hydrogen on last, the steel sector and the fertilizer sector, which traditionally has been very dependent on balsam bills in order to create these key commodities for the modern world. so this is an investment package and the future of the us economy, but also an investment package. and. busy all of the innovations and technologies that will be needed across the world in order to reduce emissions and time to avoid a crime crisis. how significant is it, though, that not one republican voted for the spill, and if they do re, re take the senate and indeed the white house, is there any way for them to repeal this or undo the progress that's been made? a lot of these incentives have support across the us economy and a lot of business bills designed, frankly, had been designed with a from republican themselves. senator joe mentioned the key swing boat for this entire process was working closely with republicans this entire time. and it's
6:15 am
primarily pulled ideas that have broad bipartisan support. and so, although this was a partisan vehicle, primarily because there was 60 bows for the level of ambition, the democrats wanted a lot of these ideas or actually bipartisan in nature. when they 1st came to the floor, we could see some rollbacks of some of these investments in the coming years. if republicans decide that they do not want these investments. however, i believe it's going to be very difficult for them to pull it off because so many fundamental us industry are going to depend on these credits and see a future in a clean energy economy with these investments. that's and i thank you very much for your insight from washington dc. absolutely. song are still ahead on al jazeera. i assume the le ledger that william columbia's 1st lift us president has sworn gustavo petro
6:16 am
promises to tackle drug violence and in the quality. and we meet families struggling to survive in bangkok as inflation drives up, the cost of essentials like food and fuel. ah hello, there is a tale of 2 fortunes for north america. we've got stormy conditions, knocking a lot of the heat out of the northeast of the u. s. and eastern areas of canada, we have got some flood watches out as that wet weather. it works its way further. east is going to knock temperatures down as well across the east coast. and along that wet weather is going to merge with heavy showers, moving across the se, states of the us. so there's gonna be more rain for eastern areas of kentucky, certainly by tuesday. some of those showers trickling down toward the desert

6:18 am
will, you will lose it. it will be a loss for all living at documentary explorer. how autocratic lead is undermined democracy to consolidate their power through the eyes of those who dare to stand and defy it. our country deserves so much better than being ruled by a cleft aquatic dictatorship, opposing autocracy. democracy maybe on al jazeera. ah ah! you're watching al jazeera reminder of our top stories. the salad, the 1st hours of a fragile cease fire and gaza appear to be holding rockets were still being launched. and the minutes before the truce began the sci fi between israel and the
