bola crisis where doctors are hoping to have no cases by the end of the year. thank you for joining us bolivia's former president there on what alice is landed in mexico where he's been given asylum 2 days after stepping down touching down in mexico city he was greeted by the country's foreign minister who thanked along with mexico's president for saving his life but alice resigned on sunday at the military's request following weeks of widespread protests over his disputed reelection but livia's new interim leader is expected to be sworn in in the next few hours but alice says that he will remain in politics this fight before spouting what he describes as a coup it will be lived. i want to tell you i'm very frank full to the president of mexico who saved my life. i want to
say brothers and sisters the while i have life i will stay in politics to struggle continues. well in a moment we'll be speaking to mariana sanchez who joins us from la paz 1st though let's go to john homan in mexico city who was there as more or less landed so tell us a little bit more about whatever morales said when he did finally arrive in mexico . he said he was very grateful as you heard to the mexican government for taking him in he also said my one crime is trying to help the poor and the indigenous population and he brought up the fact that he'd almost have to extreme poverty during his nearly 14 years in charge this is a president who has done a lot for the poor that's done a lot also for indigenous communities he is the 1st or he was the 1st indigenous president in bolivia's history which is incredible when you see that more than 40
percent or maybe even 60 percent of people have some indigenous background in that country so he was balancing doubt on the one hand and saying that's my only crime that i tried to help these people again said that it was a military coup that ousted him from power i think on the other hand the opposition are going to say well that wasn't your only crime point towards the fact that the organization of american states said that there was serious or regularities in the elections that happened 3 weeks ago and they say that he should have been standing in those elections because he had to change the constitution to run again and he held a reform referendum story to last the population if he could do that they said no and he know that to run anyway so i think this is a situation in which there isn't a black white in the country a president were is arriving in mexico finds a very sympathetic government the foreign minister of mexico and self has said that this is
a coup mexico's president has said that he respects every moralist decision to resign to avoid bloodshed in bolivia and now they have to decide what's going to happen with every moralist in the country how are they going to protect him and guarantee his security where is he going to live all of those questions came up in the morning briefing with mexico's foreign minister and he said we have to wait for him to get here for. and there we can discuss those things with the work of exactly how this is going to work i think the one thing that we do know for sure is the president world is that president really story hasn't given up on politics he said that he was going to keep and go with that and he also said before even a right to the country the hope this was a period in which he could and the choice himself was going basically before going back into the fray so he's hoping that this is the end of his story john holeman with the latest from mexico city wherever morales land the short while ago for the moment john thank you it's going to be on
a sanchez now she joins us from the bolivian capital as a man and i don't know whether you were able to hear john home in there but effectively to people welcoming of a morales also saying that what they think happened in bolivia is a coup potentially of our is trying to reenergize himself to then return what is actually happening in bolivia itself is there a power vacuum what's going on. well barbara i think this is a critical moment of the power vacuum left by morales when he left when he was 9 and then left the country no one is in charge and what should have happened today is to see the members of the legislative come in here to the national assembly to swear in an interim president apparently it's highly unlikely that that would happen we are hearing from inside information from our sources that the mass party
the party of omar ellis is divided between the hardliners who are saying you cannot * come here to the legislators you have to resign we have to boycott this and those who say they want to come they want to bring the country forward but they feel threatened they feel threatened by their own party members and by the fact that many feel that there are no guarantees to come here the idea would have been to have 2 thirds to have 50 percent plus one of legislators here to be able to have a quorum for that that is unlikely to happen because 2 thirds of the legislators are members of the must party what analysts are telling us is the ideal way out to this power vacuum and to this crisis is to have a. new interim president sworn in but what is happening is that we are seeing fighter jets flying over us in the last hour we've seen several they've been flying
over. protesters in the city of a level to which is a. place where many supporters of even with alice want to come down here to the area of the presidential palace and we are been seeing these fighter jets on and all the question to the analysts and to the people who have some inside information is what happens with the military and they say the military could take over in this power vacuum to bring back some stuff. but he was very he said it's very important to understand that both do not want a military government but that they if they take over and that is a possibility that would be to call immediately for elections barbara very crucial in tense hours and days ahead therefore bolivia marianas trench is for the moment from the money and i think you.
egyptian mediators are working to restore calm between gaza and israel after the war still cross border violence in months fighters in gaza said the barrel of rockets towards israel after a senior sliming jihad commander and his wife were killed by an israeli airstrike those rockets prompted more air strikes which have since killed another 2 palestinians mohammad valve reports. in the sky above israeli cities israel's defense system attempted to intercept palestinian rockets. and damage on the ground can be seen there is a state of alert some schools have been closed and transportation services disrupted as islamic jihad fighters fired rockets in retaliation for the assassination of one of their senior leaders in gaza early on monday and israeli fighter jets targeted senior islamic jihad leader. at his home he was killed along with his wife some of his children were also injured the part of the building where he was margin has been entirely destroyed extensive damage was also caused in the
immediate area his line of jihad vowed a quick and unlimited event said that they have we will make the enemy pay a heavy price and his citizen soldiers will pay he repriced for the crime of assessing knighting and destroying the harm of elida. and his wife and assess and i don't know out al of jury and his family at the site a time after the firing of the 1st rockets from gaza the israeli military shot all the border crossings into gaza and sirens were heard in several towns in central israel israel says i will add i was the mastermind of recent attacks against its territory. the action to thwart him was recommended by the chief of staff the head of the ship back and security officials it was discussed in the cabinet in a row of in-depth discussions over the past few. once the final decision was unanimously agreed on in the cabinet 10 days ago and the cabinet gave me authority to implemented at a time that would be suggested by the i.d.f.
and the shabak the i.d.f. and the shabak indeed recognize a time to recognize the window of opportunity to carry out the operation under the best conditions with a maximum chance of success and minimum impact on bystanders. on tuesday to israeli jets or saw launched raids on the syrian capital damascus the target was another islamic jihad member identified as a common i duty to survive the raid but his son was killed. palestinian islamic jihad is the 2nd largest group in gaza that allegedly has strong ties with iran and the hardline stance against israel. the newest collation threatens to upset a fragile truce between hamas and israel are dizzy herefore says is live now from the border harry islamic jihad that promised to launch a major response for just about over an hour ago any sign of that actually happened . well actually just while we were listening to that package from mohammed we heard
3 interceptions overhead so certainly there is at least some sporadic rocket fire still coming out of gaza judging by what we've just heard but as you're saying is i mean jihad was promising that from 8 o'clock there would be a surprise for israel telling people to look into the skies saying they're going to turn night into day so far we haven't seen that kind of a level of continued response the israeli army says that there were $190.00 rockets fired out of gaza during the course of the day and that they intercepted 50 percent of those that were heading towards potential built up areas and israeli targets and civilians however is as far as this promised response goes nothing significant so far but islamic jihad is promising that it will hold israel accountable and responsible for what it said was the stupid decision to targets. in the early hours
of this morning the key question still remains what hamas is going to do an alcove some brigades source the military wing of hamas has told al jazeera english that they have received orders to join in this bigger response overnight however israel has been stopped all of its messaging from the military has been about islamic jihad it seems that it wants to try to separate these 2 entities so we wait to see whether hamas will join it in full force if and when this bigger response does come during the hours of night harry forsett with the latest there from the israel gaza border harry for the moment thank you and will join the list again now by al-jazeera seem political analyst the shyamalan great to have you as always it's been interesting benjamin netanyahu has actually been very careful to say that the targeting all of the senior sergeant you had commander. was actually a military decision almost sort of stepping away considering everything that is happening politically in israel right now why do you think that might be. well he certainly feels the need to justify himself because i think most israelis who know
him and know what's going on is and the stand that there's a personal stake in all of this because again everyone knows he's facing major corruption charges 3 of them he's facing imminent indictment and potentially he's going to go to prison unless he stays prime minister hen hence he has a fundamental reason to deflect attention from his own corruption and court cases and so on so forth and then interest into forming a coalition government he failed the last time around the time before that and the his best way forward for a national coalition government is to bring back his old friend at the door lieberman who is even more to the right of prime minister netanyahu and he probably reckons a major escalation in gaza an assassination of this kind will probably bring him back in he already brought even a more extremists right wing politician if that had been it and assigned him
minister of defense in israel so you can imagine you have this real march towards the right wing in israel and this sort of escalation house and then there is the strategic issue of there's a ticking bomb in gaza and damascus and everywhere so israel has to always preempt by carrying assassinations at it focusing on the political side because we really have seen political deadlock in asia just the inability to form any kind of government. looking at the past to do these kinds of escalations with does that tend to work does it do you think he will achieve assuming he does want to do that to sort of use it for political reasons you know some people call it the cycle of violence assassination list the escalation the story retaliation just cease fire for a bit and then to get another another assassination i've seen that the last 25 years . one to 5 years ago the 1995 i believe it was when isn't assassinated that you had
lived that at the time but history cocky that 9095 since then is or has a sinister assassin it must leaders fight that lead the popular front leaders democratic front leaders etc etc and every time a dozen dozen of mind their leaders step up and would want to do the job even more and become even more radicalized why because israeli escalation creates pent up lions in gaza in the west bank in lebanon and other places where israel acted so it's not only a cycle of violence it's a cycle of foolishness because again and again is our says ok we took care of it knowing all too well other activists and militants will step up become even more portent leaders of resistance groups leading to more tensions and more escalation is also for that's why there is no military solution to gaza there is no military solution to the to the occupation accept the end of occupation. thank you.
