celica fighters leader wanted for war crimes in the central african republic. this constitutional crisis deepens after m.p.'s pass a no confidence motion in the prime minister. and the israel's defense minister avigdor lieberman has resigned in protest over a cease fire reached with gaza saying it amounts to a surrender to terrorism lieberman had demanded a far stronger israeli response to the most intense round of rocket fire against israel since twenty fourteen but was overruled by prime minister benjamin netanyahu he says his party will not quit the government coalition even to know who was just a one seat majority a spokesman for this idea who is right when he could has played down the likelihood of an early poll saying there's no need for it during such a sensitive period for national secure. the palestinian faction hamas which rules
7:02 pm
the gaza strip has celebrated lieberman's resignation as a victory a cease fire which was mediated by egypt on tuesday appears to be holding seven palestinians and one israeli were killed in the fighting triggered by a botched israeli raid into gaza on sunday and on wednesday another palestinian official man was shot and killed by israeli forces in northern gaza let's go now to her force it to use in west jerusalem so what else did leave them say. well essentially his argument is that by agreeing to the cease fire after hundreds of hamas and other palestinian faction rockets coming out of gaza striking israeli territory striking homes killing one person in israeli territory that netanyahu has capitulated to terror he has been making such arguments in slightly more muted terms for some time calling for much harsher military action against hamas after
7:03 pm
the months of border protests of incendiary devices being launched on kites and balloons and burning israeli farmland next to the gaza border fence and he has been saying this in the sense that that israel had to do more militarily in order to secure its long term security now his critics have been saying in the past and they've been coming out again today to say that he has the luxury of being able to say that because he's been calling for war in the full knowledge that there was something of a safety net that netanyahu and the military establishment had no appetite for war so politically he was allowed to make these very loud pronouncements without bearing the consequences of what might go wrong during the course of such a war he though has countered that saying that he has been paying a bit of political cost by being a loyal member of a government who security policy he has disagreed with and most recently he says that the real reasons for his leaving the government have been the allowing of fuel
7:04 pm
into gaza the allowing of qatari money into gaza without sufficient checks on how that money would be spent by hamas and now he says that this cease fire has sacrificed israel's long term security in exchange for only short term calm. pinup us. as far as the security interest is concerned we first of all have to finish the issue of the size of the issue of the size of texas presidents over everything else and the weakness we have shown obviously projects on to other fronts as well to stand off as i wouldn't be able to look southern residents in the . area what happens next when it's now his government well there are two questions to answer the intellect the first is what happens with the defense ministry portfolio there has been an indication from likud the ruling party that netanyahu may well keep that for himself however there is another right
7:05 pm
wing coalition partner the israel israeli jewish home party naftali bennett the leader of that part of the education minister is saying that he wants the defense ministry or he would to will will take his members out of the government triggering the collapse of the coalition and an early election even so there have been split there has been speculation for some time that there will be polls before they are due in november twenty nine hundred the presumption is that netanyahu has enough as things stand to keep things running for the next few months as long as this other coalition partner part or doesn't also pull out of the coalition air force i thank you very much indeed reaction to any of them is resignation has come from the palestinian task force on public diplomacy a special a no on day says palestinians are aware of impact gaza is having on israeli politics. well i think if the entire palestinian public it will not lose any sleep
7:06 pm
over the fact that lieberman will not be part of this government and the fact that his resignation is motivated by the fact that he's objecting to not shutting enough palestinian blood having said that i think if you look at it take a closer look at the palestinian public opinion it is not lost on any sector of palestinian society that this was directly related to the last forty eight hours or so in gaza and that gaza is a player in internal israeli politics no. how dropped in hamid has this update from gaza where there's widespread skepticism over how long as he's fall last. there's a certain style of relief here in gaza an all out war didn't break out this is one of the buildings that were targeted by the israelis it belongs to hamas but it's really in a civilian area and people around it not only you can imagine the fear they did
7:07 pm
they felt that night when that explosion happened but also their properties get damaged this is a place that still hasn't recovered from the previous war back in two thousand and fourteen so people here have been extremely worried about how things could develop now hamas on this side has put forward to the people here this cease fire as a political victory that coupled with the news of the resignation of the israeli defense minister avigdor lieberman saying that that was actually a political victory and an acknowledgement by the israelis that hamas has. all of them now people are happy that calm has returned but this still is a certain degree of skepticism all these talks about as cease fire has been very difficult to reach an agreement over
7:08 pm
a long term cease fire that's still not set and still people are enjoying the fall now but they say there is worry that it's still a shame that we so over the past two days might make reaching a. long term agreement more difficult than they do when he was. within the last few minutes the prime minister in the u.k. his office has announced that she make a statement around seventy. one hundred g.m.t. just around under an hour's time outside her office after meeting senior ministers to discuss her bricks it deal as she's been hailing the draft divorce agreement as she reached for the e.u. saying it takes the government significantly closer to delivering on what people voted for in twenty sixteen or theresa may has been holding a crunch cabinet meeting to try to convince her ministers to back the plan she's facing fierce opposition from hard line breaks it is and those not wanting to leave
7:09 pm
the brackets will may need to get the deal approved by parliament before written leaves the e.u. in march next year. paul renne joins me live now from outside the premises at residence in london such reason may has been remaining optimistic can we expect this statement to within an hour. we certainly do you can hear that overhead that's a police helicopter that one but if the cameraman could pan around i don't want to too because it's far too tightly packed you would see at least a couple of hundred journalists and camera crews all here preparing to hear that statement from theresa may it's been a crucial twenty four hours it will be a critical forty eight hours for the prime minister here at her office in downing street she's had a succession of her government ministers come in individually and collectively to persuade them of the merits of her deal a draft deal at this stage they've been meeting in the full cabinet session since two pm and frankly the announcement that there would be
7:10 pm
a statement out here on the pavement at around five o'clock this evening came as a little bit of a surprise earlier in parliament it was quite a boisterous session of the prime minister's questions the prime minister takes questions from both members of the opposition and her own party the level of disquiet among the m.p.'s within the house was obvious but the prime minister came out with our fighting let's have a listen. i'm confident this takes a significant close to live to delivering on what the british people voted for and . we will take back control of our borders on the laws and our money leave the common fisheries policy and the common agricultural policy while protecting job security and the integrity of the united kingdom and mr speaker i will come back to the house to update you on the outcome. but getting that deal approved faces several hurdles still i mean there's the cabinet meeting here how many will
7:11 pm
decide that they can't stomach it and will decide to resign instead then she has to take it to the european commission at the council that is the gathering of the other twenty. latest where they will give their views on it and see whether they can sign up to it and after that she has to bring it back to parliament to try to get parliament to ratify it and given the fact that there are euro skeptics in our own party there is the deal you pay or pawn which the prime minister realize because she's a minority government or leads a minority government and then there's the opposition parties who've already said that pretty much their currency to vote against it you know it remains to be seen how on earth she's going to get this deal that she's brought back through the actual process through it's a recitation paul brennan thank you very much. and u.n. security council has voted to lift sanctions against eritrea an arms embargo asset freeze and travel ban were imposed in two thousand and nine amid claims that eritrea supported fighters in somalia un vote follows
