11:00 am
a restoration of calm between israel and gaza follows the bloodiest day of protests in four years. although i may dream for the good this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up the destruction of data the ghost town the remains of the rebel fighters were bused away from that former syrian stronghold. patrolling the streets of the militias being blamed for the anti-government protests in nicaragua. and wasting away tons of plastic de vry cause an environmental disaster in the dominican republic. yeah it's.
11:01 am
a restoration of calm seems to be holding between israel and gaza hamas says the ceasefire brokered by egypt and the u.n. was made at midnight local time it followed another bloody day along the border which saw one israeli soldier shot and killed and four palestinians die in retaliatory asterix and tank fire let's go live now to gaza city charles stratford is the chance what's happened since this cease fire agreement came into effect at midnight local time. it seems once again that we've been brought back from the brink of a full scale conflict in gaza but interestingly in the last how the i.d.f. the israeli military announced that one of their tanks targeted a hammer specific ssion in the northern area of the gaza strip off what it says suspects trying to infiltrate into israel the the army saying that off to that tank
11:02 am
attack the so-called infiltrators went back into gaza shows you that although there is calm head calm is always a relative term when speaking about gaza there is this constant risk all of an escalation happening again but certainly with respect to how much his response last night to what israel says were the talks says the targeting of sixty eight have lost positions we understand those positions to have been in three main commerce complexes they want all across gaza indication as to how mass not wanting an escalation was its relatively muted response those three missiles at least two of which were intercepted by the iron dome the full of this coal for calm was announced and a number of. number of moral to this that will fall as well before that announcement so as i say syndication that my ass and and israel do not want to see
11:03 am
an escalation in this conflict but we were at the protest yesterday and this is our report. or these men say it's their duty as palestinians to protest against israel's occupation. they put together their kite clipping its tail which they say will keep it balanced as it carries the burning pall over gaza's build a fence they soak the sackcloth in petrol and oil because they say it helps it slowly. if we're here to prove to the whole world that we will never leave and we're going to the will keep burning kites will that occupied land and i'm not afraid of these rains and only afraid of god. from us leader ismail haniya sits close by he has come to support the protest as. i must say the kites and balloons to carry the burning rags into israel are a peaceful form of protest israeli snipers have been targeting balloons that the
11:04 am
protesters have been launching well behind the main demonstration these protesters say they will continue launching their kites holding those incendiary devices until israel lifts the siege. the men like the rag and the kite drifts all too and now it's the political fence israel says pa is started by protesters have destroyed large areas of crops and private planned. protest to set fire to tires which they uses color from his radio on the snipers positioned along the fence. he's ready tanks talk to hamas positions along the border often news that an israeli soldier had been injured these radio me later reported that the soldier had died from his wounds protesters climbed the walls of a building being used by the israeli soldiers. the army responded with tear gas a mold sounded like live ammunition. and is ready drone flew overhead one hundred
11:05 am
forty protesters have been killed since the weekly demonstrations started four months ago the israeli army shot this man in the leg during a protest in april i'm not bored just a sense that i left by sending a message to the occupiers that this is our land and you came and took it from us you jews who came from france and england and around the world here it is our land and we inherited it from all grandfathers and before them. the israeli government is under pressure by some politicians to launch a large scale military offensive to stop the protestors. israeli fighter jets targeted various hamas bases across gaza including this one in the densely populated neighborhood of z. tune the ministry of health says at least three civilians were injured in this attack. and charles what do we know of the detail of this restoration of calm agreement will it put an end to those in century balloons and kites.
11:06 am
well as we saw in that package the protesters that we've spoken to say they will continue launching these incendiary kites and balloons until israel lifts its twelve year long siege and eyes again we saw how mice lead a small hania very close to where that kite was being constructed and he would have seen it being launched so have i say that certainly i have said this week that they will continue to support the protests in what they say as being a nonviolent means of standing up for palestinian rights and demanding the end to this siege. a lot of attention should also be put on the reconciliation efforts being made. the the egyptians trying to broker a deal between fatah and hamas. all efforts have failed those reconciliation efforts started in two thousand and eleven but any kind of reconciliation effort is
11:07 am
important because certainly analysts are saying that that could play a major role in forcing israel to begin to ease restrictions on gaza to begin to ease the sea so we look forward certainly to that in the next couple of days where we expect a response from fun so we understand that house has actually agreed to the latest proposal and we understand that a fatah representatives traveling to car in the next twenty four hours and could well be commenting on how facts on stand on that deal and meanwhile of course the blockade continues the twelve year long book a continues just some stats fifty percent of gazans live under the poverty line fifty percent of them the one point eight million gazans are unemployed some of them here only getting around four hours of electricity a night's rule sewerage being pumped into the sea we wait tomorrow sunday for an announcement from israel as to whether indeed it will end its temporary brought
11:08 am
kate all of. fuel oil and cooking gas that was put on last weekend after last weekend's escalation we understand that israel it said that that was going to be reviewed on sunday so ok relative calm here in gaza this so-called ceasefire seems to be holding but that doesn't mean that the suffering of the gazan people doesn't continue just many thanks i was this child stratford live in gaza city let's speak now to jump juba who's in west jerusalem mohammed what's israel saying about this cease fire. well adrian it's interesting israel is not using the term cease fire we've spoken to the israeli army just in the past hour they say that the situation is calm they confirm that there has been a sation of hostilities and that it is a full civilian routine in israel's border areas with gaza that means basically
11:09 am
that the fighting has stopped that the operation is not ongoing but also when you look at how masses statement last evening they also did not use the term cease fire they said that it was a return to an era of calm clearly this is really just going to show that while everybody is trying to ensure this doesn't escalate into a full fledged conflict the situation even though it's much calmer this morning does still remain tense and there's a lot of behind the scenes negotiations going on now we have also heard about one incident that happened just in the past hour the israeli army putting out a statement saying that a number of suspects infiltrated israel from the northern gaza strip the suspects then returned to the gaza strip in response to an i.d.f. tank targeted how mouse military posts now this is not something that is out of the ordinary these types of incidents happen quite frequently but again it just goes to show that there's always something going on the border in the tensions you know remain there because people are concerned that this could escalate once more now
11:10 am
the israeli army had said that as of yesterday when the operation was ongoing in the gaza strip that sixty sites in three hamas battalion compounds were targeted and that those targets included weapons manufacturing sites a shaft to a tunnel that were going to factory used for underground infrastructure manufacturing talking about the tunnels that israel has repeatedly targeted in the past we wait to hear more from the israeli government today as far as what exactly is going on as far as if we can consider this to be an actual cease fire and what are the steps that the israeli government will take going forward adrian mohammed many thanks indeed i'm sure as mohamad jump june the live in west jerusalem. syrian rebels who surrendered in the south west of the country have begun arriving in opposition held areas in the country's north buses carrying more than two thousand people have reached the town of la broke in hama province the fighters and their families were given safe passage under a deal with the government the agreement is

election campaign laws trump has denied paying former playboy model coloring book to his current lawyer confirms payments were discussed with cullen but says they would have made a white house correspondent kimberly health report. this recording seems to reveal the president discussing with his personal attorney michael cohen the payment of money in the form of check fully one hundred fifty thousand dollars this is problematic for the president given that he has denied he ever had an affair with karen mcdougal the playboy model the white house saying this was fake news and that the president never had such a relationship the recording seems to contradict that statement of course the president at the time of this alleged affair also married with an infant son certainly problematic on a personal level so this really brings up the question of what the president knew and when he knew it it's also a concern given the fact that there is a separate investigation that is ongoing in all of this and that is the one being
11:24 am
conducted by robert muller the special counsel well these two investigations are separate the one into michael cohen trumps personal attorney and the one into whether or not there was russian interference in the twenty sixteen u.s. election and whether the trunk campaign colluded with russia with this information is shared it could be problematic for the president given the fact that if michael cohen in order to save himself from the charges he is currently facing he could decide to cooperate with the special counsel and that could certainly be risky for donald trump the jewels have been held in the u.s. state of missouri for the seventeen people who died on thursday in the tourist boat accident nine of the victims were from the same family the amphibious vessel is carrying thirty one passengers it's saying what it was overcome by heavy waves during a storm investigators are examining allegations that the passengers when lost wearing
