ministry has dismissed the report as biased and baseless sorry false it has more occupied east jerusalem. and palestinian racism was on show in jerusalem last week with hundreds of israeli far right activists chanting death to arabs the for. right thanks to an electoral alliance sponsored by the prime minister now has a foothold inside parliament but it is new report human rights watch makes a broader accusation that the israeli government itself practices apartheid and persecution started looking at it we saw the reality in which a single government rules of the road the area between the jordan river and the train you see roughly 6800000 jewish israelis and 6 for you. and across these areas is really authorities systems. and ultimately privileged jewish israelis the report focuses on 4 arenas in israel where it says palestinian israeli citizens are discriminated against particularly in terms of land use. in
1:03 pm
the occupied west bank where palestinians unlike israeli settlers a subject to military law and where settlers have preferential access to land resources and building permits in hamas controlled gaza from which palestinians a barred exit to live in the west bank or east jerusalem and in occupied east jerusalem where unlike israeli citizens palestinians can have their residency status revoked this is the 2nd high profile report this year that is accused israel of practicing apartheid in january the israeli rights group said the israeli government was an acting jewish supremacist policies in the occupied palestinian territories and inside israel itself israel is again rejecting such charges its foreign ministry saying human rights watch is known to have a long standing anti israeli agenda actively seeking for years to promote boycotts against israel their decision not to share this report for review or comment with
1:04 pm
any israeli authorities is clear indication that it is a propaganda pamphlet which lacks all credibility but critics point to the $2800.00 nation state law which defined national self-determination as quote unique to the jewish people and to the fact for several months last year israel's prime. minister was advocating the permanent annexation of nearly a 3rd of the occupied west bank it was then this is a very important report on israel practicing a part a policies the should be the position of the international community as it was with south africa and they should be punishment against the occupation human rights watch says with no viable peace process in place the situation has gone from temporary occupation to permanent domination it's calling on the international criminal court to investigate its allegations will go to that ibrahim in ramallah shortly but 1st let's talk to her before that in west jerusalem and harry israel already pushing back on this very strongly how seriously are they are they taking
1:05 pm
these sorts of accusations in a report like this. well on the one hand they are dismissing this report as false and propose stress and propaganda coming from an organization that they say has long been anti israeli but on the other hand there is a pretty sophisticated israeli attent to try to head off accusations of this kind on a number of fronts when you think of b.d.s. the boycott divestment and sanctions movement especially in the united states israel has been working very assiduously to try to undermine that campaign against the international criminal court's decision to investigate both israeli and hamas officials for alleged war crimes the israeli prime minister calling that pure anti semitism so it does take these sorts of things seriously and i think that's because it does touch on fairly fundamental issues about the nature of the current state of
1:06 pm
israel and indeed the the the longer term zionist project it was of course set up as a jewish homeland as a safe haven from people who'd been subjected to pogroms in the in europe in the 19th century and of course spurred on by the holocaust in the middle of the last century but is now subject to some criticism given the fact that 20 percent of the israeli population never mind the situation the occupied palestinian territory is palestinian israeli or in the israeli terms israeli arab and this is a country which recently passed a bill which said its national self-determination was something specifically in the province of the jewish people not of every citizen citizen of the country now israel of course defends itself on both those grounds saying that it has legitimate security concerns when it comes to both gaza and the west bank and that within israel the palestinian citizens of the country are able to take part and are
1:07 pm
represented in the parliament in the judiciary in the foreign service. and indeed in business in all other ways however there are long term allegations and indeed evidence of discrimination both within israel and so this is something that they are pushing back against and that human rights watch says that when you take it in the round not just in each isolated instance but evaluate it against legal definitions you can see that israel is practicing these crimes how he thanks very much for the up there let's join our colleague leader ibrahim who is live for us in ramallah with the palestinian point of view what has the reaction been from the palestinian authority as. let me tell you 1st about the palestinians we were here in front of the palestinian civil authority where many protestors were trying to lobby the palestinian authority to push israel
1:08 pm
to give their spouses palestinian i.d.'s a palestinian passports to be able to live together in one geographic area this is one area that that report has talked about the fact that israel controls the population just 3 and that it doesn't allow many palestinians from arab nationals or even internationals when they marry. when palestinians marry people from outside they don't allow them to get to the unification papers they don't allow them to get i.d.'s and passports and this is one element that the report mention but for many palestinians they would tell you that this is the reality on the ground these these this is the daily live under the israeli occupation policies many of them have said told us that they are glad that the international community some groups are stepping up and showing that israel is indeed implementing 2 systems for 2 people
1:09 pm
but for them this is a reality that they've long known for the palestinian authority the palestinian president has welcomed their report said it's well documented and the palestinian prime minister has also issued a statement saying that it's time for countries who are against occupation to make it vocally by revising their relationship with israel order holding israel into account into account by putting sanctions for example and he said it's not enough that these countries are just pointing out that they are against the occupation and that they should be holding israel to account let's not forget that the i.c.c. chief prosecutor in fact open suit that has said that it's opening an investigation into where crimes committed by israel and some tell. tinian groups in the occupied territory so many here are hoping that the international community keeps up and at mit's and recognizes what they have long known that they live under apartheid did
1:10 pm
over here in ramallah for us thanks very much well as. you saw him in the areas reporting he is the israel palestine director for him and rights watch and joins me now from jordan's couple thanks very much what does this report to now that your son other reports from other organizations haven't said or done before this report is a comprehensive 213 page documentation of israeli governments practices apartheid and persecution for years prominent voices have warned that the situation in israel's treatment of palestinians could give rise to apartheid that threshold has been crossed and may well have been crossed years ago it's incumbent upon the international community to recognize the reality for what it is a 54 year occupation is not temporary 30 year peace process will not end systematic prussian apartheid is the reality for millions of palestinians apartheid or
1:11 pm
persecution or international viewers we wondering about that definition very different definitions to describe the situation on the ground but in this particular case very closely linked. absolutely i mean while apartheid of course was coined in relation to south africa it is a universal legal term and a crime against humanity defined under the rome statute to the international criminal court as consisting of inhumane acts or particularly severe abuses committed in a context of systematic repression and with the intent by one group to dominate the other persecution is about discriminatory intent and severe abuses of fundamental rights human rights watch evaluated these 2 crimes together and the way in which they apply to the facts we documented regarding israel's treatment of palestinians you say there are facts that you have documented the israeli foreign ministry as have you just said has said they've had no access to report they have been able to look at your report they have been able to criticize your report did you offer your
1:12 pm
report to the israeli authorities for that perusal. that's a false statement by the israeli government we wrote to them in july of 2020 when we're doing a factual research with a series of details factual questions this is a regular practice we've been working in israel palestine for 30 years we were going to 100 countries across the world we write to governments typically the israeli government responds it confirmed did not respond last week we can wrote to them again we shouldn't executive summary of the report and we offered in person briefing ahead of the launch to present our who are important findings and they never responded that is that is clearly a mischaracterization the matter is again impending the report of yours come again we're seeing several moving parts to the story around the world to be the s. movement being criticized in the usa by israel on university campuses a 2nd major report as harry mentioned by bet a local ngo it israel also talking about the. treatment of palestinians
1:13 pm
in all the areas of the occupied territories and the i.c.c. which also refers to opening an investigation into war crimes that may be committed by the military and government officials how does your report fit into that global conversation about israel's behavior and the pressure that it may create and tell of eve. look the international community for too long has viewed human rights abuse as symptoms of the problem the problem being the lack of peace process the reality here is systematic repression is a core problem you can draw a disease unless you properly diagnose it the disease here is apartheid and persecution it is metastasized and consolidated and is incumbent upon the international community to take the measures and situation describe the warrants including the international criminal court investigating and prosecuting these crimes against humanity including targeted sanctions including asset freezes and travel bans against those israeli officials implicated the fact is the israeli
1:14 pm
government has with impunity continued these abuses year after year meanwhile day by day goes by where a palestinian is born in the gaza strip without the right to free movement born in the west bank without civil rights born in israel as a 2nd class legals as a 2nd class citizen by law this must end. human rights watch thanks very much for joining us from. thank you. plenty more ahead here on the al-jazeera news hour including calls for justice for injured anti-government protesters go louder in georgia. also heavy fighting in myanmar as rebels in a border area attack a military camp. and joe will tell you which players are the 1st to be inducted into the english premier league's hall of fame also coming up in sport.

the world health organization says the 3 new covert 19 variants that are present in india may have contributed to the latest surge the devastating 2nd wave is overwhelming india's hospitals and credit orleans along with a shortage of medicine and oxygen new cases have stayed birth 300000 for the 6th day and the health ministry has reported another 2771 deaths the search has left families and patients pleading for oxygen outside hospitals health officials in new delhi and neighboring states have been making calls and posting appeals on twitter seeking emergency supplies the government has called for help from the military which will release oxygen supplies from their reserves retired medical personnel will also provide help australia has now joined a growing list of countries that have banned all restricted flights from india a shipment of medical aid is the 1st to arrive while the u.s. is lifting a ban on sending raw materials abroad allowing india to make more of the astra
1:16 pm
zeneca that seem let's get more on this from our correspondent elizabeth cohen who's live for us in new delhi and of course elizabeth hospitals overwhelmed and a 5 star controversy brewing. that's right so despite the international aid pouring in never seen it coming in the last few days the world health organization has said that they are prepared to fend for the. as an oxygen concentrator delhi leader denny's leader ivan cage has said that they're planning to set up tens of oxygen generation plants we continue to see those pictures of hospitals oxygen starkest twitter time lines for the desperate people trying to find beds and oxygen supplies for their loved ones which is why the announcement from the delhi government on tuesday that they are setting up. a covert health facility in a 5 star hotel for the delhi high court judges and their families that announcement
1:17 pm
hasn't been received very well now this was at the request of the delhi high court and there has been backlash on social media with people asking if it's a joke when people are dying outside of hospitals because there aren't enough beds and there isn't enough oxygen indeed of course you know the numbers themselves so much the pictures i suppose it has been speak for themselves the pictures that we're seeing the numbers really are going up and there seems to be perhaps discrepancies in the numbers in the way the officials of tallying these all up both in the rural areas is a difficult job really to get an accurate figure isnt it. and you can really see that there must be a discrepancy when you look at the pictures that. are coming out from all over the country of mass burials that crime of tory and. tweens using parking grounds and car parks to cremate people and the official death toll just not adding up to the
1:18 pm
numbers of covered bodies which are being from aged which are being buried it's happening here even in the capital of delhi as well as a number of other badly affected states in good wrath in my view for there in the most populous state author for this the official number of daily infections isn't an accurate indication of the cases either because it's taking so long now to get tested and even more days to get the results and despite all the some cases rising alarmingly in states including author of the day we have leaders of the predations chief minister you hear that you're not saying that there are no shortages despite people dying there because they can't find beds and oxygen and asking government officials are asking police officers to take action against hospitals which put up signs saying they can't admit patients because of a lack of oxygen to investigate whether they're doing that to create panic and this
1:19 pm
is hospital directors and doctors all over the country breaking down because they don't have the resources to save lives elizabeth force there in new delhi thanks very much it's been. seeing is a community development officer the home good foundation which is a non-government organization it comes to the rescue of many in the capital who desperately need supplies of oxygen and he joins me now from new delhi mr singh good to have you with us on al-jazeera thanks for your time i know how busy you are trying to help people in your capital city i mean how is the organization helping in the search for oxygen that the public so desperately need. we basically have to initiate it the 1st thing and i think even come in that way he called and we give them support 27 beings where. oxygen banks are free so there's not judge. if you could in all of these. we could curing all of these oxygen tanks from that is
1:20 pm
a. shortage in delhi india just just tell us a little bit more about the numbers of people that are coming to your organization if you can give us an idea of when the outbreak sort of started and it started to get worse what was the increase in numbers that you were seeing on a daily basis if i compared with the 4. 100 s. in a month but do not be getting $1000.00. on headline news you did it with an instagram and we did it. on a daily basis we're getting under 2000 people waiting outside our head as you know lining up. in terms of the focus might be on the capital of india at the moment but from the people that you're speaking to in your sort of charitable. context where all the problems around either delhi or how they are or even beyond those borders.
1:21 pm
the major not far from delhi on the national guard and region the 2nd being maharashtra and then. we are not just walking in delhi and. making us work and back in india many people are coming to you are coming either as a 1st resort or even as a last resort to get oxygen but we're hearing stories about some members of the public talking about the black market and the problems they're experiencing trying to get supplies even if they could are you hearing the same stories. that openly has been the base of the force for good so you're getting noxon's didn't know what about 6000 east now the moment general public is getting in for when to tell him to be that lucky. we obviously have a bad effect and vendors and we're lucky enough to have a strong network but we can get people that give it to them. do you find your job difficult at the moment in the sense that on a new you're not a politician but there are certain politicians on the government who want to remove
1:22 pm
social media tweets that certain hospitals don't have beds or certain hospitals don't have oxygen and they're very critical of those organizations who are trying to inform the public about whether oxygen or other supplies are or are not available does that make your job difficult when your trying to help people who are turning around to you and saying i can't get a certain supply of either oxygen or medicine because this hospital says we haven't got it although you might be afraid of what the government might say if you tweet out that a hospital has got oxygen or heart hospital it's got these drugs it definitely makes my job a lot more difficult it takes it down and then you have this on one side of language people but you know we do face issues. and we have been asked to remove one of her great very good we've clearly mentioned that you know our. you know there is a deliberate cause. so yes we are. likely to but i'm glad we did as well and on

1:38 pm
they said what they did is they overran this outpost and then they burnt it to the ground and now what this is an indication of is the an uptick in violence we've seen between the cain knew and its forces ethnic army forces there in the caribbean area controlled area against the tatmadaw now this has been going on you know it's really kind of kicked up since the coup on february 1st but this is a fight that's been going on for decades but obviously right now as you mentioned so hill they they came in you has thrown their support behind the protest movement that is against the coup that is against the jones a that now rules myanmar they've joined other ethnic armies and other ethnic groups who have said also that they are supporting the the protest movement and actually even talked about a national unity government being part of that and the possibly an army beyond that so what this is is a sin a small attack that was a symbol i guess that some say they can you is sending to the tatmadaw that they are still there they are still part of this organization this idea i should say to
1:39 pm
remove them from power what's going to be interesting in what some people are saying is that retaliate that is going to be expected over the coming days because of this attack on the outpost but right now what we can say for certain so is that this was an attack they released it was meant to send a signal but it's part of the ongoing uptick in violence along this territory that it really just borders right right along with thailand it's called highly force it but thanks very much. now the u.s. attorney general has announced an investigation into the living police department in kentucky not follows the killing of brianna taylor a black woman shot in our own home during a botched police raid and it comes only days after the death of another black man during a police stop in north carolina wrote brunell's explains. as protests over the police killing of andrew brown jr continue his family members were allowed to watch

behind the violence of the past persist and much of the land has never been registered. political professor daddy of the heart of the who has studied the issue closely says powerful interests that control the land don't want to process to advance market more than 40 percent of transactions in the country are not registered which makes long drives easier and we have one of the worst concentration of property in the world we need to connect these remote regions to the rest of the country with road channel porch unities. back at the farm close and his family are worried because coca fields are appearing again in their territory as are drug trafficking groups putting once again at risk the fragile stability and peace they have achieved and listen to them and just. well still had hailed the news that was kind of our escape the surgeon india cricketers playing in the premier league take extra precautions on story coming up with check in sport.

by time sports history science thank you very much australia's prime minister scott morrison has told us straight and chris's they'll have to make their own way home from the indian premier league following his government's decision to suspend flights in corona virus cases in india 3 australian players authority fine hi i'm now batsman chris lane is also his country's cricket board. to charter a flight to bring the others back at the end of the tournament david waters among those who remain here in sunrisers hyderabad team mate cain williamson suited up
1:52 pm
and personal protective equipment as a team travelled from chennai to delhi warner and williamson who's from new zealand stayed on to play for their franchise despite nearly a 1000000 new cases in just 3 days the teams will now play in abbottabad and the capital delhi which has been hard hit and the players are aware of what's going on outside that by a secure bubble. it's not nice to be honest watching from afar certainly considering how lucky we are to be in a bubble and not be affected by it very much we'll see lend their support and heartfelt gratitude to everybody who is ill or going through tough times well you commentator sales joins me now live on skype from go on sale it's get your point of view 1st should they cancel this indian premier league. i think it's a tough question i'm not someone i'd like to sit on the fence and i know the age
1:53 pm
old saying is the show must go on 'd but i guess in the midst of a global pandemic you must ask yourself at what cost and what stage does that show not go on and i think this 2 sides to that coin in a country like india you know everyone across the years looks forward to. the guns out that is the idea that i think spirits are lifted and especially during depressing times like this people look forward to it and that is that one side of the coin but on the flip side obviously it's just a depressing stage you know when things started off a need to be there 100000 cases it was still sort of a time where things looked like they were getting better vaccines were being rolled out but suddenly you've got triple the number of cases and i think it's a tough one because there is no right answer because there's a lot of jobs that are at stake there are thousands of jobs beyond just the luxuries and the millions that the plane isn't making and i think that's why it's a hard one to just cut don't know if this was happening in a country like india and it would have been shut down by now but i think india and the i.p.l. is a different beast in
1:54 pm
a country of 1200000000 people that really do lift their spirits with a tournament like the idea. that we so 4 planes dropping out yesterday can you see more play is following and if that does happen how do you think the play the teams will come. i think it's going to be a personal one i think i'm too tired summed up quite perfectly said we actually feel safe in the bubbling but moderately i just can't put the situation together because there's a philosophical question that he must address which is how are we justifying the government culprits and to be spending so much money when people are lining up to not get a hospital bed and i think that's the big question that people and the conundrum that players are facing as well i think players and teams have the ability to back their bench strength and there is enough where they need to go and i think teams will start to see lending each other players in the loans will start to come through but i do think there will be a few personal calls made of each other that actually made a bold statement when we stepped out of the seat for personal reasons there and
1:55 pm
it's a question of whether you want to put your family 1st i think a lot of us that started to hit home very closely we've all got family members now who are suffering with kobe who are struggling with oxygen as well and i think the closer it starts to hit only you start to cry or ties and you wonder whether to put your family there 1st or you continue to live in this isolated bubble and i think it's a tough one because you've got the pressures of performing in the world's toughest t 20 leagues and then you've got the pressures combined with the wadi of whining about your family members to understand where they lived at the end of these 2 months as well and i think it's a cop out but teams and players alike and i just really want to get to this point coming to 50000 dollars to buy oxygen for hospitals in india has anyone else fully 10 because he plans to take the same. i think there have been a few and again i think the i.p.o. can be a scapegoat and i think that government is $50000.00 isn't the 1st about kohli has
1:56 pm
his own foundation and that's only continues to contribute it's just that we don't see it very often that we don't see a statement in social media when they do the same but i know they did the same a long time ago it was a fantastic gesture i think from pat cummins to do so and i do see a lot of players following suit i myself made a donation yesterday and i know a lot of us did through multiple of the funds that are going on but i think it has to go beyond that i think the powerful piece that is the i.p.o. has the ability to do send a message through whether it's on your broadcast whether it's a message of whether to get back in a day where your boss socially distance safely i think these are some of the messages that need to be passed on through a powerful medium that is you know we're going to millions every night and so while the i.p.l. is a soft scapegoat on one side i think it's going to follow it as well to start telling people and educating people and building awareness about what they can do better to actually combat what covert 19 is about today because it's a beast that india today is really struggling to cope with all right so thank you
