the president heard one himself of playing politics with the situation unusual because the french foreign minister was saying on monday that he had not heard this tape and of course that has been certainly taken to task by the turkish foreign minister who's really let loose on the french saying the french foreign minister really doesn't know what he's talking about by saying such a thing as it's an offensive thing when turkey has been open from the very outset on this issue of the investigation where does the investigation go well if it stays in a position whereby the pressure is being exerted on saudi arabia we're getting more leaks bit by bit but there's only so much pressure that can be exerted from this leaks process it's reaching a point now where it's quite evident that the pressure has to come from countries outside turkey to move this crisis into a more calm direction to actually somehow placate the levels of concern anger

6:08 pm
with his foreign backers russia egypt and france and the u.n. backed government of prime minister of the raj and his foreign backers including italy so this is a step towards that underway already. one of the things this conference has done that others previously have not to the same degree is that italy has invited a number of the armed militia groups in libya many of them described by have to islam is they tend to support the else around government in tripoli he objects to their presence here because of course he sees them as a threat to his goal of national control that ostensibly is the reason why he won't sit at the big table but he is here he is part of the process it remains to be seen whether he'll be part of the conclusions of this conference later today and join of their meeting to discuss a new u.n. plan for libya what more do we know about. yes that does seem now to be the main focus of the talks and everyone's attention

6:50 pm
jihad's it also says both hamas headquarters and the television station were targeted as well at the same time almost four hundred rockets have been fired by palestinian factions from gaza into israel around one hundred of them were intercepted the rocket attacks killed one palestinian man living in israel while several is really have been injured now the u.n. secretary general is urging all sides to exercise restraint it all began on sunday after a covert israeli operation in gaza on the ground killed a hamas commander and seven other palestinians and israeli soldier was also killed at the time. joining us from west jerusalem for all the latest developments with specifically on the israeli security cabinet meeting underway right now. well as you said it's under way and i think it's going to last for for
6:51 pm
a little longer now last night prime minister netanyahu met with the military and intelligence leadership that was for an operational update on what was going on on the ground specially in southern israel along all that border area with gaza we haven't heard anything specific coming out of that meeting now today he is meeting with his cabinet i think they're probably going to be discussing all the options on the table now you have to bear in mind that just a few hours before all this tension started prime minister netanyahu was in paris stating kids or saying that he was trying to avoid this is sorry war he was also defending. his policy or of trying to find a long term ceasefire agreement with hamas and by all accounts they were all the parties involved which means israel hamas egypt and qatar where on the verge of
6:52 pm
working out the final details for that agreement now. is the prime minister going to try to give that another chance or is he also going to bow to the pressure of some within his cabin and who had been advocating since a long time that another war was necessary in gaza actually a few months ago the defense minister himself of it during lieberman had said that another war was necessary for in his words bring calm for another four to five years. that have made the update from us to reflect who the thank you will now bring in harry faso he's joining us from that's on the israel gaza border and it was a night off launches by palestinian factions and israeli airstrikes into gaza what's the scene like now. well it has calmed to some extent now we can hear israeli drones as we always do over gaza territory gaza city
6:53 pm
you can see in the distance behind me but it still remains an extremely tense situation as you can glean from what holder was just saying the sheer amount of rocket fire coming out of gaza the amounts of israeli firepower going into gaza are in the kind of targets which they have been striking not what we've seen in recent escalations were largely uninhabited or at least evacuated military areas have been targeted these main areas right in the middle of a built up residential areas targeting alex a television target seeing how my sites as they say that this does seem to be a pretty big israeli response and what we're hearing from the israeli media is that senior israeli officials are saying that they are not talking to either egypt or the united nations about any kind of cease fire any time soon the palestinian factions have said that if israel continues what they term its military escalation
6:54 pm
then they will widen the range and targets that they are striking with their rockets so at the moment both sides adopting a hard line and already a major escalation under way and harry what are you hearing about the latest death toll as well as casualty numbers. well from inside gaza the latest figure we have is six people who've been killed. three of them confirmed as members of the popular front for the liberation of palestine two of them confirmed as members of islamic jihad we're still waiting to find out who the sixth is and as you heard as you were saying earlier the israeli fatality that we've or us least of the talent on this side of the border on the israeli side of the border we've been hearing about is a man from hebron in the occupied west bank who was in ashkelon and so those remain the figures for now but obviously this is a moving situation with a lot of firepower being used on both sides the fear is that those numbers will
6:55 pm
rise all right to harry foster thank you for the updates mohammed that argument is a columnist and political analyst he says this could be an important moment in the future of the blockade of gaza. the fact that the situation is so fresh and any. attack might result in civilian casualties in the israeli side of the receiving side might take both sides to. war. but i think this is collision came at a critical moment i think both sides needed this is collation to go ahead for a new era i think both sides have realized after a series of wars that the military operations the wars are not the solution they need to have a different approach and finally the each and that is standings over.
6:56 pm
a period of calm and gaza during which. allows for the fittest on time may be to have qatari money funneled to have. to have to give some space for something like solution for the blockade but the turkish president russell tell yer to on has given new details about the killing of john non-fossil jean he says a saudi intelligence officer told him whoever killed a journalist must have been on hara when she was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul on october the second by what turkey has described as a hit squad simmons is joining us from istanbul to talk us through the significance of early ones latest revelations and her. well the significance is really the setting in paris around a dinner table with the u.s. president talking to the president urged one. stressing the point his vision of the
6:57 pm
crime as he describes it and his insistence that his special advisor have been told by bahama been solomon the crown prince that the whole thing will be investigated they would get to the bottom of who made the actual order for the murder of her shoulder here in the consulates and also what form of justice would be. meted out to the accused eighteen of them in all in the saudi list fifteen but turkish list identified visually in photographs and also in c.c.t.v. here in turkey now heard on went on to say he actually described in this briefing the the atmosphere surrounding that saves in the horrific nature of what was heard on the audiotapes and he spoke of a saudi intelligence officer listening to a can being shocked and turning round and saying apparently that these men these
6:58 pm
people they must have been on heroin to commit such a form of a crime words to that effect and so really what is stressing not just the point about this whole thing going to the top he says that the saudis have not delivered there was sure that they would bring to justice those concerns or they had not named whoever was responsible he made it clear also that he told not only the u.s. president but also the german chancellor angela merkel and emmanuel macro on the french president that as far as he was concerned it went right to the top and king solomon was in no way responsible obviously the the basic inference is the crown prince was involved in directing what went on he also said that. he would push for more international justice if they could not get this thing moving he also said that there should be the extradition of these suspects to turkey he basically also
