syria is using nat as a pretext or as an excuse to destroy them and we know that the united states just you know a little while ago bombed italy province itself in order to kill kayla baghdadi who had taken refuge there with some of his men many isis people had fled into the region so you were all opinion maybe less. maybe divided over this region and this you know the world is really not looking turkey has closed the border and even though it is waving its arms at this and asking to international community to do something about it it's very unlikely that there will be anything done. the chief prosecutor of the international criminal court is pushing for an investigation into alleged war crimes in the palestinian territory she wants it to happen once the i.c.c. establishes its jurisdiction both israelis and palestinians could have charges filed against them the u.s. opposes an inquiry that it says unfairly targets israel leader abraham reports from

7:08 am
occupation and thus opening the oracle of the scope but israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the court has no jurisdiction to investigate in the palestinian territories this is a dark day for truth and justice the i.c.c. prosecutor has apparently decided not to dismiss outright the palestinian claim against the state of israel this is a baseless and a religious decision the court has no jurisdiction in this case the i.c.c. only has 2 restriction over petitions submitted by sovereign states but there's never been a pounds to. the court based in the netherlands will only investigate alleged crimes committed after june 2014 when palestine became part of the i.c.c. jurisdiction in the past 5 years thousands of new illegal settlement units were developed along with the confiscation of palestinian lands and demolition of their homes israel's response isn't unexpected it says the i.c.c.
7:09 am

7:14 am
same in the beer but for most it's still big open sunny skies. the weather sponsored by chance on a. with one of the highest murder rates in a while that's the main challenger one of central america smallest countries is gang related violence you are a country that is not technically a war but you have levels of followers that look like country so that the president of the el salvador. talks to al-jazeera office here i this is opportunity to understand i mean a very different way where they are because i don't believe that.

7:18 am
. the hindu nationalist party the ruling party's alliance through the areas and the response of the government while it has been quite brutal in these areas and what's also interesting is that most of the protesters who are on the streets are only talking about mostly talking about not commune in communal lines but about upholding the constitution and the secularism of the constitution and just further on that then sabina as we see these protests continue to grow and we've seen the crackdown from the government is any indication from the government those protests are having any impact with disney reconsideration of what's happening in. so there are 2 lines of it here one is that within the national democratic alliance the partners off the. government there are some ministers the statement to serve like in bihar the chief minister morris said that he does not want. the
7:19 am
controversial law and the n.r.c. the national registry office citizens he doesn't want that but there are also in karnataka the state of karnataka one of the ministers went on to say that. one should not inside the majority government and when majority is retaliate it could turn bad so. while there are some within the b j p party who are trying to incite a lot of them are also stepping up back and saying that they want to maintain some peace so in the next for the next few days are going to be crucial to see how the protests end up being and how the government reacts so thank you submitted for us to joining us live from new delhi for the 1st time a new the 9 years humanitarian aid has reached a remote rebel held area in sudan it comes as the transitional government which was
