5:04 pm
a fragile truce between hamas and israel are disease. ok let's talk to harry forsett our correspondent live on the israel gaza border is that particular area harry pretty much in a situation of lockdown now. certainly areas around the very fringe of the border itself we aren't able to go any closer than about 55 kilometers or so away from the border where we are here because of a police road closure and still be the rocket fire does continue and the israeli response about 10 minutes ago or so we heard and saw a rocket coming out from gaza territory behind us heading north it was intercepted by the dome in the skies overhead and so that is the situation that remains we also heard israeli warplanes as well overhead so it seems another round of airstrikes could well be underway over gaza and inside gaza this all of course started with
5:05 pm
the striking of the home in the early hours of this morning of. the man whom israel holds responsible for a round of rocket launches from gaza into israel over recent months the israeli military said that it was an opportunity that it had been following him it had been warning islamic jihad against his activities and that it recommended so the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu along with the israeli internal security agency that this was the window of opportunity that was the time to strike and to kill him at a school of course they killed his wife along with him and the israeli prime minister in his comments at a news conference was very careful to indicate that it was coming this recommendation from the military and the security agencies at a time of real political instability inside israel at
5:06 pm
a time when of course there have already been accusations that politically it helps benjamin netanyahu to be seen as the strong military leader even though he's. in charge of a caretaker administration is facing the imminent decision by the attorney general on 3 separate corruption cases he's trying to be very clear that this was in no way a political decision but one that was recommended by the top brass both in the intelligence and military. thanks very much. spain's acting prime minister has agreed in principle to form a new government. got most votes in the elections on sunday but not enough to form a majority he's now signing a coalition deal with the far left party that was the country's 2nd general election this year and joins us live from hong pier on the border to be agreed to. well i think their group. together tried to form because even though these now.
5:07 pm
centers and have reached this 10 point that they just announced and how they would deal with govern the country they still don't have a majority gather we'll have to do a lot of horse trading to bring onboard other parties that i think what the move here is really to try to get a stronger position and to try to counter the right wing parties that fared pretty well in this election. but this is just the beginning of forming a coalition this will have to convince other parties to come on board what's going on right now. well this is the we are engine care the main highway in the main roundabout that leads to the highway that these protesters for independence protesters called upon by the democratic tsunami have been blocking since yesterday now over the past hour or so we watch as
5:08 pm
the police have been pushing them further and further away from the highway to try to open the traffic again and about 10 minutes ago there was a pretty dramatic move because one of the truck driver may be exasperated from the long way on this side of the highway really rammed and was about to drive over to the protester he has now been arrested by the police and the police is continuing trying to push the protesters further work on the side roads that lead to this roundabout but certainly there were moments of high tensions it seems to be under control had a moment many thanks. the former bolivian president evo morales is set to arrive in mexico mexico city after the government offered him asylum he resigned on sunday after weeks of protests following his disputed reelection meanwhile the country he's left behind is bracing for more violence as thousands of his
5:09 pm
supporters march towards the capital john heilemann is at the airport in mexico city so john once he gets there is that his final destination do we think. yeah it does seem that way i have to tell you i'm not at the airport right now we're at the bureau we're going to head to the airport because we now have an arrival time and that's around the 1130 local time so that's about 1730 g.m.t. so it's been a long night of negotiations the mets can foreign minister was just describing it in a press conference he said that to get him here they had to negotiate with several countries to use that space you also described actually picking up now ex president were alice in bolivia he said that they finally got permission from the bolivian air force he said as an aside that shows you who sort of in charge at the moment and he said that when the plane landed it picked up x.
5:10 pm
president were ollie's but then. the plane wasn't allowed to takeoff there were armed forces within the airfield there were present present were atlases supporters on the outside of the airfield that was very tense atmosphere but now it's getting closer to mexico one question that he was asked actually in that press briefing was what was going to be how would this affect the relationship 3 mexico and the united states given the met for mexico this was a coup this was a military coup that pushed president is out for the united states is welcome still to transition after a fraudulent elections and he said well obviously that relationship's important we feel that we're in a good moment but that relationships based on respect not submission and we all have our own ideas so it's sort of mexico asserting it's a independence then the other thing that was interesting that was he was asked was about the right in mexico particularly the right his party pan who have been sort
5:11 pm
of tweeting against this and saying that really they don't want x. president morale is in the country that does seem not he's not welcome think of everyone here emits code that does seem to be sort of divided 'd opinion about what should be happening. but the foreign minister said well we're a country that's granted asylum to a lot of figures 30 years including actually later on throughout ski from russia so this is part of a prestigious tradition and something that we should something that we should continue so now we're just waiting for ex president more of his to arrive perhaps he'll speak a little bit later on in the day and give his own version of events and when it comes to his version of events john do you think perhaps the tipping point was that point during the counting process when the local electoral election commission suspended what was going on and everyone in the region sort of looked at everyone else went oh hang on something's not not right here.
5:12 pm
i think that was definitely sort of perhaps the seed of all of this we were actually there and believe it when that was happening when the vote count was suspended for almost 24 hours and that was when the doubts started to creep in that was when the protests began and that 1st night of protests we saw police tear gas lots of very young university students out in the streets but i think the real tipping point perhaps in which he no longer continue in power when the military seemed to say publicly that they felt that he should leave power was with the report of the organization of american states and that report which was an audit of that vote said that there were lots of serious irregularities and that really seemed to tip the balance and things seem to move very fast that came out on sunday morning and then by by the same day he presided and now what are we on tuesday morning and he's already an ex-president in exile going towards mexico so i think
5:13 pm
that things probably started as you say when there was a long delay and that was where suspicion correct him where these protests began but i think the really the nail in the coffin as it were was the oas report now interesting the organization of american states actually has an emergency meeting later today in which this is going to be discussed and i imagine that's going to be pretty fiery because countries on the left tradition in latin america like nick and i were then his whaler cuber of obviously said that this is a coup countries on the right like brazil for example have said that it wasn't a result of fraudulent election countries like colombia are also on the right at the moment saying well let's get on with things but try to get a peaceful and orderly transition a new elections it remains to be seen whether that's going to actually happen in bolivia because that country even without president morale is currently in the picture is very much divided between the many people there that support him is
5:14 pm
through the country's me. popular politician and those that feel that he violated the constitution to run in the elections and then committed fraud whilst in it ok joe millionaire many thanks. still to come for you here on out al jazeera out of control bushfires now threaten australia's largest city we're talking about sydney also park rangers in zimbabwe scrambling to save animals suffering a severe drought in high temperatures. i think smell the change of seasons now over china the northeast monsoon should be what we're looking for and despite the fact the cloud is still coming out of the high ground producing rain every now and again in for example sichuan that comes further inland if you clear that half of the way which is i think the trend it will
5:15 pm
feel cooler still low humidity so shanghai's it succeed in hong kong at $26.00 to breeze in the south china sea meaning the coast of vietnam get some rain but there's precious little else the monsoon troughs call now from india so a few showers in kerala or sri lanka seem to be the thing and temps around about the 30 mark is typical but still the still cold and i do mean cold compare with the average over places the north of new delhi up in srinagar jamul kashmir marketers more rain and snow showers are even possible down the middle of pakistan which is an unusual sight for this time of the year. there was a rain on sunday in qatar significant rain and in the u.a.e. it's gone so to signify as to change our season skies are clear now the breeze isn't particularly strong anywhere but by day the highest temperature in doha as an example is 28 it's still about 30 in the western side he was 34 in mecca.
5:16 pm
russia has jeopardized the united states security interest we know what you are doing and you will not succeed perceptions from the outside looking. but what's the picture from the inside. i think russia's foreign policy is too soft to keep us russian goals to be achieved not peace to the russian on al-jazeera.

5:19 pm
asses now this is very very dangerous and i think the hong kong government and the hong kong police force are urged to do whatever they care within the law to restore law and order to hong kong police move or live shots is always regrettable but it really depends on the level of violence committed and whether there are people all want to grab a gun from a police officer for example all want to physically attack police officers all these criminal activities should not be tolerated and should be condemned by all the peace loving people throughout the world is not an exception is not a jungle hong kong need to make sure that law and order prevail president xi jinping of china has already expressed the full support for kerry the chief executive of hong kong and the mainland chinese government of the central
