the case of one particular strike targeting a house in which the husband wife husband sister and 5 children were all killed the israeli military says that he was a senior islamic jihad commander russ me i will madhu's so far we're not getting any confirmation of that from islamic jihad itself all right terry foster thank you for that update. a u.s. ambassador has described how president donald trump put pressure on ukraine to investigate his political rival joe biden william taylor was one of 2 foreign diplomats to appear in the 1st televised hearing at the center of an impeachment inquiry into truong hiding so castro reports from washington the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you god william taylor and george kent took the stand
10:05 am
together at the 1st public hearing in the impeachment inquiry career foreign officers called by democrats to tell a compelling story to the american public taylor is the acting u.s. ambassador to ukraine who upon assuming the post in june found himself dropped in the middle of a mystery once i arrived and gave discovered a weird combination of encouraging confusing and ultimately alarming circumstances taylor had begrudgingly agreed to come out of retirement to take over the u.s. diplomatic mission at a critical time his predecessor maria of out of it had been ousted without explanation and president trump's personal lawyer rudy giuliani was meeting with ukraine officials to discuss debunked corruption allegations against political rivals that had taylor worried and countered an irregular informal channels of u.s. policy making with respect to ukraine. unaccountable to congress taylor began

10:07 am
sense it was it was counterproductive to all of what we had been trying to do. it was illogical it could not be explained it was crazy multiple witnesses have corroborated taylor's testimony much of the facts are uncontested but there is a critical factor still missing from the democrats' argument to impeach president trump and that is evidence that trump was directly involved and therefore to be blamed the closest democrats have come is a july phone call between trump and the president of ukraine a lot of years olinsky tells trump his country's ready to buy more weapons from the us for defense purposes trump sansar i would like you to do us a favor though then ask for investigations into democrats and the bidens this is extortion this is bribery and in any other instance. people would go to jail for sure trump says he's innocent and republicans are stunned sleep

the election process in the in the vote count that led to the organization of nor can states saying that it was serious or regularities he said that there wasn't fraud he said that he felt that the organization of american states was acting in the interest basically of the united states so that's president morales is take on what. link back home in his country believe the organization american states define serious or regularities in the voting process there were serious doubts and that's the opposition a many people to take to the streets in a process that really hasn't stopped him believe via now looking at fascism so between the opposition and between the supporters of president morales the president the ex president now said that his sister's house was attacked in one of those confrontations so a very disturbing situation in bolivia and the president and next president that is

president and the newly elected ukrainian leader. undeterred by what's going on in washington ukrainian soldiers are preparing war games with the u.s. colleagues at the joint multi national training center in the west of the country tactics they can use in the ongoing war against russian backed separatists in the east where we pay attention to politics that doesn't affect our process will be heard tomorrow or as long as both governments agree that we're needed here . besides having ukraine's back against russia the americans are getting ukraine's troops ready to become part of nato. this is how u.s. military aid to ukraine looks like an army which was said to be suffering from corruption and the lack of funds now beefed up to face russia in the east but one threat to withhold this aid even though it was only temporarily has caused doubts about how much ukraine can rely on its most important ally. after the
10:20 am
much debated phone call with trump ukraine's president followed a mere zelinsky said he did not feel pressured by trump's threat to withhold military aid but analysts say it has affected the image of the united states and ukraine and could even push some towards moscow what we're seeing in washington now that is under threat of unraveling completely as wide a report. in a series that for trump is not interested in any larger issues of democracy promotion state building and human rights in ukraine rather he's interested in using ukraine for his own political needs. but the us president still has some fans in key if this coffee shop only opened a few months ago i would say it would make ukraine more famous and more people aware of ukraine was happening in ukraine about war in the middle of europe ok but it wouldn't help ukraine in that many americans don't even know that ukraine is
10:21 am
this young which i also believe that i don't feel any particular help from america so i think we have to rely on ourselves. not the sort of message ukrainian soldiers fighting what is known as the forgotten war against russian backed separatists want to hear they hope the u.s. will continue to support them step fastened al-jazeera livy from ukraine. protesters in hong kong have blocked many parts of the city's center for a 4th straight day. many are angry after 2 protesters were injured in confrontations with police and left in critical condition demonstrators are occupying the city's center and several major roads have been blocked schools are being kept shut until sunday let's get an update from sara quark's she's joining us from hong kong sara tell us what you've been seeing. but we've had 2 flash mobs are called rallies
