1:03 am
a day morning and night the meaning of humanity is messy and most people are educated or can't find work people are frustrated and depressed people are willing to die and those who are married cannot feed their children patients can't get medication and there is no electricity this is really painful and sad. palestinians here have little power to influence the political decisions made either in gaza or israel no one wants another war but as one woman asked us what do we need to do to be able to live like everyone else stephanie decker al-jazeera. latest now on the israeli government response from western. israeli officials we've been speaking with are not calling it a ceasefire they are saying in fact that calm has been restored in israel's border with gaza they are saying that activities are returned to normal but they are not calling it a cease fire now hamas also wasn't going to cease fire when they were talking about this cease fire for all intents and purposes that's what it is but it is
1:04 am
a very shaky truce at this point now we did hear about one incident that happened several hours ago in gaza the israeli army released a statement saying that a number of suspects infiltrated israel from the northern gaza strip the suspects then return to the gaza strip in response an idea of tank targeted a hamas military post but beyond that we've heard of no other incidents throughout the day as of now still calm but there is a lot of unease because people here very much aware that any little thing could could spark something that could be a wider conflagration really at any time. a u.s. president has accused his film a lawyer michael cohen of potentially acting illegally after it was reported that he secretly recorded donald trump discussing payments to a former playboy model recording was seized during an f.b.i. raid on cohen's property this year in new york in the recording trunk reportedly discusses paying money to karen mcdougal he says she had
1:05 am
a ten month affair with trump so if more details let's get to shabba tennessee in washington what does all this mean for the president shall have. well that's that's verging actually this could mean something far more serious than anything we've heard from robert muller as investigation into alleged russian collusion nothing connecting donald trump to russia and meddling in the election the alleged meddling in the election so far but this could be a very serious federal crime if it is proven donald trump actually tweeted this morning it's inconceivable that the government would break into a law office early in the morning almost unheard off even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a plant totally unheard off and perhaps illegal the good news is that your favorite president did nothing wrong exclamation mark so it isn't illegal for michael cohen to have taped that conversation ethically debatable but not illegal under new york law and what donald trump is referring to there is the f.b.i. raid of michael cohen's offices in april what it seems prosecutors in new york are
1:06 am
investigating is whether michael code and perhaps stone from. the publisher of the national enquirer american media and broke campaign finance laws by paying that hundred fifty thousand dollars to karen mcdougal effectively to muzzle her so that she didn't actually she didn't actually give her story to anyone else without her story about her alleged affair was not published anywhere else this was happening during the election campaign if it's found that cohen and i were colluding there to try and help donald trump's campaign back could be a campaign finance violation because illegal for corporations to work so closely with and with a campaign in order to get someone elected in any way individual contributions are capped at around five thousand dollars so that could be very serious if it is found to be true donald trump denies it he just says cohen if this is simply acting in his in his usual role of just being dull trumps personal fixer. how closely is this
1:07 am
what's to buy people that in the u.s. to kill any chance of horses. i mean that's such a good point actually we have these revelations all and always daily basis they make enormous amounts of news on the cable channels the cable channels have certainly found. the view they hold press sources like the new york times and who are kind of worried about the internet are all filing you know huge amounts of traffic from a certain constituency in the us usually disgruntled in the reconfirmed supporters and people who really really can't stand all drum but when it comes to the people who actually support all drop a lot of the stuff doesn't make much of a difference a tool they still they still believe that there is a witch and they still think that the donald trump is correct when he says people are pulling out all the stops simply trying to get him because he's an outsider and sort of the polls show that his core constituency isn't really budging independents perhaps might do so there are all those there's there's concerns that actually if people really do want to unseat donald trump they do a lot better by coming up with a with a viable political platform that people actually want to hear and sort of living in
1:08 am
a sort of bubble where all you hear about is is russia and the potential for prosecution of donald trump that's not going to serve going to help in the elections that come up into the. thank you very much for the latest from washington she had a tendency to. syrian rebels who surrendered in southwestern can actually have started arriving in opposition held areas or than fifty buses carrying two thousand three hundred people have reached the town of not broke in the western province of hama the fight has and their families were given safe passage and a surrender deal with the government and syrian army forces have since entered the city of connection a deal is a victory for president assad his forces have retaken much of the south i don't have sound as in my but the rebel held area in hama whether those rebels and families from connector have arrived. well some of them have a lot of the iraqi regime forces carrying people displaced from connector have
