in life under lockdown a made on growing international sanctions. and intimate portrayal of isolation in one of the world's least understood countries coronavirus lock down iran people in power on a jersey. and on the israeli government. it's an exception class the u.n. secretary general says that israeli plans to an expanse of the occupied west bank would be a serious violation of international law. and i'm a very unfit again this is al jazeera live from doha also coming out that the station with the reverse of the fact israel does believe. palestine tells the un security council that any israeli annexation is
a crime. the president of kosovo indicted for war crimes he stands accused of nearly 100 murders. and the show must go on but when it's the british there's a industry struggles to find a way forward a bit the covert 19 pandemic. a watershed moment that will cause the most serious violation of international law that's how u.n. secretary general antonio gutierrez has described israel's plans to annex parts of the occupied west bank members of the un security council and the arab league have been meeting to discuss israel's move which could be put into motion as soon as next week most of them were united in their opposition with warnings that israel's unilateral action could trigger a major escalation in the region. if implemented these moves could dramatically
alter the local dynamics during instability across the uk by palestinian terror and maybe beyond this cult has been marked by periods of extreme violence but never been caught in the risk of escalation been accompanied by endless school horizon so this isn't an economic situation so it runs our own in the region so whole time. it is crucial role stakeholders take action that will enable the parties to step back from the brink opposition is also coming from europe more than a 1000 politicians of sidle as a urging their leaders to stop israel while on the ground in the jordan valley in the occupied west bank out in gaza that been renewed protests against the u.s. backed israeli plans let's go well live to west jerusalem as a serious hour a force that could help us analyze all of this area all of the the criticism that we've heard today hold any sway with israel's government.
well i think they would have priced in a good deal of this criticism already they've been hearing at least some of it for several weeks now and said it has been no public resigning from benjamin netanyahu the prime minister's stated plan to carry on with the annexation process from the 1st date available to him which is next week the 1st of july now there was a lot of very stark warning coming from very from a number of the players that the ambassadors and the spokespeople in this meeting you heard from the climate enough just then he talked about a descent into chaos being potential from an annex ation move the palestinian foreign minister also spoke and he talked about about an irreversible breach of relations between israel and the palestinians and he talked about consequences potentially emanating beyond the region as well from the israeli ambassador there
was talk of the biblical claim of the jewish people on the area that they call judeo and samarium he blamed the palestinian rejectionism for having got to this point a lack of realism and that it was realism that was taking place now not what he said the was wrongly termed an accession by the palestinians by the europeans and others but i think a lot of the a lot of the scrutiny here will be on exactly what is happening in the united states among senior u.s. officials in washington d.c. they are meeting this week to discuss exactly how much and what will be green lighted if at all in terms of the annexation the signals certainly have been pretty positive but there was talk from the u.s. ambassador. kelly craft during this meeting she said that it took courageous israeli leadership to make of the hard choices required so does that mean that they will require something of benjamin. you know in terms of acknowledging publicly
that this is part of the trump plan which also as part of it contains a palestinian state something that might be harder for him to sell to his right wing supporters here in israel and also 'd talking about holding the palestinian leadership accountable is that another attempt to try and get the palestinians to hold talks and potentially stave off an accession talks based on the trump plan which they have utterly rejected because of the annexation it also includes in the huge loss of territory within the occupied west bank that were would result i think it's very late in the day to try and make those sorts of appeals over there are reports that they have been made through various channels to the palestinian leadership what is much more likely seems to be a coalescing of opinion around a limited potentially to start with at least a phased annexation and indeed benjamin netanyahu as former rival and now coalition partner benny gantz appears to be coming on board with that having said that he's
a he was opposed to unilateral an expression having said that he wanted other countries to be involved and be consulted on tuesday's vote to military correspondents here in israel and it was saying that if the palestinians didn't come on board than israel would have to move on without them so things seem to be aligning in benjamin netanyahu favor a week out from this date or a force that reporting live from west jerusalem harry many thanks indeed al-jazeera as neda ibrahim is in the jordan valley and has been speaking with the palestinian prime minister's advisor about their rejection of israel's plans. jackson. said that to me was a bit like there were the palestinian prime minister. actually mr bennett going on mentioned if you'll let the national reserve you change it by the. united nations that mentioning that the israeli state should.
start but he didn't mention hundreds of the solutions but the united nations about that in fact that you be sure about establishing a palestinian state also about that if you could even if we didn't reject any opportunity we were able. to start negotiations at this i mean moment if this is according to the international law and united dissenters the u.s. is on to that a good deed and signed agreement between us and it was a lease signed mine i gave us was that. in the security economy of the ballistics and as a leech only on mine agreements it's it should be only what i have decided i was double with the u.s. secretary of state's says that it's up to israel to decide on the next i was there as alan fischer as in washington d.c. with more on my pompous response. we know that the trumpet ministration has given israel a lot of what it requested you remember that donald trump made
a pre-election promise that he'd move the embassy to jerusalem he did exactly that he also recognized the annexation of the golan heights by israel as well that was a bit of a surprise but still something that he could crow about something that has been mentioned several times is donald trump strong links to israel benjamin netanyahu has called him the best u.s. president for links to israel in the history of the united states one might pompeo took up that theme when he was asked about the proposed an extension of the occupied west bank he referred to reporters there to the commissioner a peace plan or should it be called the trump peace plan that was drawn up by a son in law and senior councilor jericho who proposed this is a way forward in the middle east he says that the an extension question is one for israel but the palestinians really need to revisit the idea of that peace plan i regret only the 3 this refused to do just that. this simply
this implicit reject do this we simply asked the country. this is not what i want to push in for peace and they chose not to live choosing to to threaten to bluster to assert that they're going to deny the ability to security progress that good for them just in the people so we spoke to kellyanne conway who is a senior counselor to donald trump here at the white house just a couple of hours ago we asked her about the proposed an exemption she again said donald trump is a real friend of israel's and we should expect a big announcement in the next couple of days we kind of know where that is going because in the trump peace plan he suggested that an exception would be something that he could live with even though we know that it could provoke a reaction around the arab world both politically and domestically. israeli police have shot dead a palestinian man in the occupied west bank police say that our cat rammed his car into an office causing slight injuries protestant officials are questioning the

percent of the world's countries now in recession due to coronavirus lockdowns shouted the good news about vaccines could speed up the recovery but the labor market will be slow to rebound and the nations must keep social safety nets in place this is indeed the worst recession since the great depression it was already the worst recession since the great depression in april when we had projected growth for 2020 to be at minus 3 percent but now at minus 4.9 percent that is even even more strongly true and no country has been spared both emerging market developing economies advanced economies have all been very badly hit during this crisis pubs restaurants and cinemas in england have been told that they can reopen next month following months of lockdown but fears are workers are awaiting news of when they can get back on stage and welcome audiences again almost 300000
jobs depend upon the industry as just a whole reports now of london's west end the entertainment center of the capital being an actor. you you want to act. you know you want you want to be on stage or whatever you do if you're on cameras on t.v. you want to be doing work. on london's $1000000000.00 a year west-end pretty woman was set for a sold out from with actor mark holden among the cost then just weeks after opening coronavirus brought the curtain down. in our profession. 90 percent of actors are out of work at any one time. what are they doing the rest of the time in normal circumstances and we're not in normal stuff certain circumstances now we're in something that our generation has never experienced it's estimated that without a government rescue up to 70 percent of performing arts companies countrywide will
close for good but the government has not so far included theatre among the businesses it's trying to protect some larger theater companies are already announced that layoffs are inevitable meanwhile andrew lloyd webber the creator of phantom of the opera is trialing thermal imaging equipment to test audience temperatures and make it safer to return eventually they will likely survive many smaller companies may not and for this it's no remedy. the fightback has been online like the sonnet a day program performed under the auspices of the tiny german street theater why does that promise so few be used here. but it's no match for ticket sales we all need financial help airlines are getting financial help we need financial help in the same way that most theaters that i think all think it is must have an audience to be able to pay their bills we need help because if we don't have audience coming
into our buildings who are able to buy those tickets these buildings won't survive they will collapse a packed auditorium here is just 70 people social distancing will mean future audiences of less than half that size nowhere near enough to survive. and so to the writers creating new work but for fewer actors to keep costs down i think writers will have to find different ways of telling multicast stories it will still be the same story. will still have the same content but even under that adversity writers will trust try to find a way of producing the same story within only a couple of characters shakespeare produced plays like king lear and macbeth while in lockdown because of the bubonic plague now too there will be cauldrons of creative work bubbling away behind closed doors the question is what sort of theater world will exist to bring it all to life jonah hole al-jazeera london
