hello, i'm adrian finnegan. this is louise. i'll live from doha, coming up in the next 60 minutes. the supreme court overturned the 1973 landmark roe vs wade ruling ending daily half a century of abortion rights of the us. and after shock in afghanistan, adds more misery and death. sedley areas was hit by wet and stays powerful earthquake. the last ukrainian forces had been asked to retreat from the eastern city of savannah gomez after weeks of street battles with washing forces of the you and human rights office as that israeli security forces fired the shot that killed al jazeera joel is showing abruptly added sport palo bank harrow land, the way api n b a draft. the orlando magic made the 19 year old. there are number one overall ah,
6:02 pm
ah. so we begin this news in the united states where the supreme court has just struck out a ruling work acknowledging a woman's legal rights to an abortion. this was the seat of an anti abortion demonstration in washington. as the decision came through, the conservative diligent court voted 6 to 3 in favor of overturning the 1973 ruling known as room versus wade millions of american women and are expected to lose their rights to have a bush. a few moments ago, u. s. from speaker nancy pelosi spoke to reporters, is what she said. no point in saying good morning. because it certainly is not one this morning. the radical supreme court is the best rating american rights and endangering there's health and safety. but the congress will continue to act to
6:03 pm
overcome this extreme isn't and extremism and protect the american people. today, the republican control to prime court is achieve their dark, extreme goal of rhythm away woman's right to make their own, to sit reproductive health decisions. because of donald trump, mitch mcconnell, a republican party, their super majority in supreme court. american women today have less freedom than their mothers with ro in their attempt to destroy it. radical republicans are charging ahead with their crusade to criminalize health freedom in the congress. be aware of this, the republicans are plotting a nation wide abortion ban. they cannot be allowed to have a majority in the congress to do that. but that's our goal. and if you read
6:04 pm
and again, we're all studying all this. but if you read what is in a very clear, one of the justices had his own statement, it's about contraception. in vitro fertilization, emily planning that is all levels spring from their decision that they made to day such a contradiction. yesterday the said the states and cannot make laws governing the constitutional right to bear arms. and to day they're saying the exact reverse that the states can overturn a constitutional right for 50 years. a constitutional right for want having the right to choose. that policy is raging,
6:05 pm
but the harm is endless. what this means to women is such an insult. it's a slap in the face to women about using their own judgment to make their own decisions about their reproductive freedom. and again, it goes, well, i always have said the termination of a pregnancy is just sir opening act. it's just their front game. but because, but beyond behind it and for years i have seen in this congress opposition to any family planning, domestic, or global. when we had had those discussions and those debates and those votes on the floor of the house, this is deadly serious. but we are not going to let this pass. a woman's right to choose reproductive freedom is on the ballot in november.
6:06 pm
we cannot allow them to take charge so that they can institute their goal, which is to criminalize reproductive freedom to criminalize it. now they're saying and states that they can arrest doctors and all the rest. what is happening here? what is happening? a woman's fundamental health decisions are her own to making consultation with her dog, her face, her family, not some right wing pollitt. sions. of the donald trump and mitch mcconnell packed the court with, while republican seek to punish and control women, democrats will keep fighting ferociously to enshrine roe v wade. and the law of the land. this calling is outrageous and heart wrenching that make no
6:07 pm
mistake. again, it's all on the ballot in november. supreme court has ended a constitutional right. this is 50 years proclaimed a constitutional right. but i sat in car speaker, nancy pelosi speaking a few moments ago. let's go live in to washington. all zeros protocol, heinous, or outside. the supreme court putty talkers through this, this ruling well, when i set the scene for you 1st, when we 1st arrived waiting to see if to day would be the day the decision was made, there were way more pro, anti abortion rights activists. but you're out there minutes and past 10 or 15 minutes, we've seen the crowd start to swell. we expect that's gonna continue throughout the day. the reason why this is going to be a hugely unpopular decision. these are a 2 thirds of the country, and a recent poll said they wanted roby way to stand 2 thirds. but now we've seen these 6 justices come forward and completely change what they said was settled law,
6:08 pm
which is to ban abortion in a love many, many, many states. so what's gonna happen right now? they're about 13 states that have on the books so called trigger las, they'd been waiting for this opportunity to basically as of the decision in those 13 states, abortion is banned some states, there are no exceptions at all for rate, for incense of further the health of the mother for fetal abnormality, so whether or not those exemptions are going to be allowed that'll be litigated for further, but in the end, probably by the end of next week, we expect 26 states in this country will say that abortion is illegal. some states have taken a step further, they've started to look at legislation that would make an i u. d. a legal that because they said that that it, that violates the feet as could be viable in that moment. so this is just the beginning of what is going to be a monumental change in this country,
6:09 pm
depending on where you live, and depending on how much money you make before rody raid wealthy women were able to travel out of the country to get abortions. it was the mostly my of brown and black p up people who a low income people who either had to have a child that they didn't want. or they had to go for backroom abortions. it led to a lot of women dying in those unsafe clinics. i want to talk to soon centera taylor . she is been here for 2 weeks and waiting for this decision. when it came down, your rear react. this is the state violence against women, this is an absolute atrocity. is illegitimate. it is illegitimate for this supreme court packed with theocratic fascist judges, appointed by an illegitimate president. donald trump, to give the state the right to hijack women's bodies, to treat their wounds like surveillance sights and to drag women end to court to put them on trial and locked them up. if they induce their own abortions,
6:10 pm
if they travel to other states to get abortions, forcing women to have children against their will as a form of enslavement. it is barbaric and this is a 100 percent illegitimate. it is infuriating. it is outrageous and no one should accept it. i think anybody with any ounce of decency humanity love for women concerned about just as concerned about l g b t q writes, because those are next contraception is next. all of the rights that are undergirded by the same foundation is ro are on the line. now, we need to be in these streets. we need to rise up a non violent, massive sustained, i'd, beautiful year. now it needs to grow every day, millions strong, until this building this body, the capitol hill, yet congress or the white house acts to restore legal, nationwide abortion across this country on demand. now, this is absolutely women cannot be free if they don't control their own bodies. it reproduction. so you're an activist, what's next? what do you do next? we're calling on people to rise up in the streets and the, and massively flood the streets. i have the green bandana. this is the green
6:11 pm
bandana that came out of argentina. it was taken up in columbia in mexico play was where women were abortion was criminalized, very patriarchal very repressive society, very catholic societies, people went in the streets and they demanded legal abortion. and they struggled day after day night after night they brought thousands and they brought millions and they tore down the criminalization of abortion. and we need that same flooding of the streets from below 1000 strong 1000000 strong. we need to bring this society to a halt through non violent mass disruptive protest and resistance. and i'm not talking about one day like the women's marcher planned parenthood one symbolic day . then you go home and you wait for november for the democrats who have never thought these fascist the way they need to be fought, would never protected abortion the way it needs to be protected. i am talking about day after day, the struggle of the people brumbalow in these streets until we compel those in power to restore legal abortion across this country. not
6:12 pm
a few sanctuary states where women are left behind in oklahoma and texas. women are who are in detention are left behind. women in prison are left behind. exactly like you said poor women, young women who cannot travel. i am not talking about protecting a few areas for a few women which will be shrinking anyhow. if these fascists are not stop, i am talking about legal abortion on demand across this country in the fighting ford around the world. this is on our hands right now. and history is being decided . everybody in this country is being put to the test. if you accept this, it will only grow worse, and it would be worse than you imagine and faster than you imagine. we have to draw line. now we have to rise up. we have to reverse this decision. now, you're obviously not gonna change the court's opinion. they don't know that this is an unpopular decision. you're talking about legislation and that they couldn't get through the senate. you think that enough people can pressure them with such an evenly divided senate republicans. so together on this issue, i think that even capitulation has
6:13 pm
a common ground seeking democrats. and yes, even fascist republicans can be compelled, they worry about the perceived legitimacy of their institutions. everybody knows this decision from the supreme court was illegitimate. if people come out and show our opposition, i think it can force a kind of political crisis where they have to make concessions in reality. that's how all our rights have been. one voting rights weren't one by voting. they were one in the streets by people sitting down doing freedom rides, going on hunger strike, going to jail. l g b t q writes a marriage equality was won by people rising up. abortion rights was won by people going in the streets and raising hell. this is how you force power to consume. frederick douglas, said it years ago, power concedes nothing without a demand. never has never will do. i think it's realistic that they will restore abortion rights if we set home hell know, do i think if we come out and raise but he held the majority of us one in for women who has had an abortion. all the women and the men and the doctors,
6:14 pm
remember that galley dance for close lives before 1973, all the young people in fear for their future. if we flood these streets and don't go home. absolutely, we can compel them to restore legal abortion on demand across the country and nothing less than that is acceptable. miss taylor, thank you so much for your insight. i definitely appreciate you and obviously this is an emotional moment for activists on both sides. we have one group celebrating behind me and we were one group. i was back there talking to them, many of them so they just simply couldn't speak. they were too sad or they were too ang that he give us some bark ground. but what led up to this ruling? well, well, what lead right to this ruling was an enlarged part mitch mcconnell so we had. justice scalia died during brock obama's last year in office. it was about a year till the next election. mitch mcconnell was the leader of the senate,
6:15 pm
he said, i'm simply not going to take a pre information hearings. we'll let the next selection decide. who gets to name someone who is supreme court. obviously donald trump one and he went on to laminate deal. gore says brett cabinet and then then the court was pretty much it $54.00, but just as john roberts, the chief justice tended to be the swing vote there. but then what happened is, ruth bader ginsburg died. ah, well it office and it was just about a month maybe less than that to the next election. mitch mcconnell changed his mind on the time frame and they rushed through a justice amy county barrett, i. so that gives the court a 63 super majority, but leans very conservative. i should point out in 2 of the recent confirmations, both justices cabinet and gorse. it said under oath that they believed rowe was settled law. this decision simply says row was the wrong law. and overturned it, but want to give you a quick sense of how road the way changed lives for women in america.
6:16 pm
abortion wasn't always controversial in the united states. it was legal when the country was founded up until what they called the quickening when the mother could feel the baby around 4 months. but by the 18 eighty's abortion was outlawed across most of the country. it stayed that way until the sixty's. as the woman's movement came into force pressure mounted on the court. first it struck dental law. the ban, so im birth control to married couples. then later for unmarried adults, family planning information services on play. then movie wade in 1973 changed the lives of millions of women, allowing all portions in the 1st trimester and some restrictions in the 2nd. a decision reaffirmed several times since by the supreme court before the decision on row wealthy women could travel out of the country for the procedure. but for lower income women getting an abortion often meant going to unsafe clinics. in 1965, 17 percent of all dust due to pregnancy were the results of illegal abortions. and
6:17 pm
after row there was an economic impact. women could choose to stay in the workforce a could start, for example, on advanced eh, and education program. i. they could get accepted into such a program because a school would say, i find a credible that this woman will actually complete her education and not drop out. i because she'll be able to plan i and allowed women to invest in careers as opposed to just jobs. i because they could, they could follow paths that involved investment rather than being viewed by employers as people who are sort of here today gone tomorrow. studies have shown that women who leave their job to care for their child even for a short time rarely recoup their earning potential. and many can't afford child care in this country, which now cost an average of $14000.00 per year. there are some economic studies that say there is also a link between legal abortions and a drop in crime. this reversal will now mean half of the women in the country are
6:18 pm
a bell to find out what life was like before. roe v wade. a half a century ago, especially for women with little means, have a child, they don't want or risk their lives to illegally get an abortion. betty co. hayden, that reporting former us president barack obama, as tweeted, saying that to day the supreme court not only reversed nearly 50 years of precedent, it relegated the most intensely personal decision. some one can make to the whims of politicians and idealogues, attacking the essential freedoms of millions of americans that set, bringing our white house correspondent kimberly how could is life for us in washington dc? how will the white house be viewing this ruling? kimberly yeah, we are watching the white house very carefully. we are expecting to hear from president biden today. he is due to deliver remarks on this rural lane. we are not clear on what time still watching very carefully, but we do know that the white house who has been anticipating this ever since that
6:19 pm
league draft of this ruling was released. and we do know that there have been sort of a number of options that the white house is explored. the option of legislation has been a limited one, given the fact that there is a very narrow majority of democrats in the u. s. senate to and we know that within the democratic party there is division over abortion. so that is not really a pathway that the white house believes that it can go at this time. so what we know is that the white house has set up sort of a legal bureau to look at other options. and among those options, part of me, what with the white house is looking at is potentially increasing access for the so called abortion pill. this is something that women can take up to 10 weeks of pregnancy to terminate a pregnancy, medically through of medication. another option that the white house is looking at
6:20 pm
is potentially allowing abortion clinics to be set up on federal lands. because what this ruling has done is essentially given power to the states. but if these clinics are located in federal land, then the power goes back to the federal government. and that is another option that this government is pursuing. and finally, there is an option to try and pursue this through the federal medicaid program, which allows for health insurance and, and health care for the indigent. and those that are of low income status in the united states to seek abortion. so these are some of the pathways that the white house is pursuing right now. but again, this is not sort of a magic, it is not going to restore the sort of broad access to cut to, to abortion that existed previously. and as we have been discussing here now to 0, the other big concerns of this white house is that what this ruling does is it opens the door for other reaper reproductive freedom to be taken away from women.
6:21 pm
namely the axes to contraception being the biggest one. i don't know whether you got some water that kimberly you want to grab that will i ask you another question here? i am right back in the beginning of the program or i brought back at the beginning of the program. we saw how speaker nancy pelosi are giving her reaction to this ruling. and she said that women's rights will be on the ballot. it the midterms in november. what does she mean by that yet? well, what she meant was essentially really the only pathway to change this is for those that feel strongly about this ruling, to change the makeup of the u. s. congress. but this is tricky because, well, the majority of americans, when they're pulled, say that they favor some access to abortion. the needle is sort of murky about where they see that being acceptable. some see it being okay up to 6 weeks of
6:22 pm
pregnancy, some see it. okay. up to 12, some see it. okay, up to 36. you get my point. so there isn't broad based agreement. so what we see here is sort of a broad spectrum of where people favor abortion rights. that's why nancy pelosi is saying, if you favor any sort of abortion right, you're going to have to put in place the legislatures to overturn what has happened at the supreme court. it's very important to understand and in the united states, the supreme court does not have more power than the white house, more power than the u. s. congress. they are all equal. they all sit side by side on the same plane, if you will. and so that is why she's saying, if you want to overturn what's happening here, you need to change what's happening here in the u. s. congress. that's why she's encouraging people to get out and to favor politicians that to, that are for overturning this decision as really seeing the legislative path as the
6:23 pm
way to do it. knowing that the makeup of congress right now is not an option. it will need to have more democratic politicians in the house of representatives and the u. s. senate, in order to over to turn this something that doesn't exist right now. our white house correspondent. kimberly how good reporting live that from washington. many thanks for the moment. church. kimberly. well as you've been hearing, it's been nearly 50 years since the u. s. supreme court ruled on roe vs wade. the 1973 decision established that choosing to have an abortion is a right protected by the constitution. 7 out of the 9 judges voted in favor at the time the rule that a fetus has the potential for life in the early stages of pregnancy, but is not a person. and therefore does not have constitutional rights of its own. decades later, restrictions on the procedure vary depending on state laws, but at least 13 states have what's known as trigger laws that will immediately ban
6:24 pm
or restrict abortion. following today's ruling, lin rabo as an ameritas professor of law at texas, and i'm university shortest now from pennington, new jersey. it's good to have you with us up. what do you make of this ruling? well the ruling, ah, we pretty much knew it was coming since the lake of the draft. it's a pretty horrifying day for women in america in terms of their reproductive freedom . but there's kind of a bigger war going on right now. and even bigger, one about what our constitution is supposed to mean and what it does to protect people in the most sacred areas in their lives, from majority rule. because we have many states who want to take over women's, reproductive freedom. and they are now going to be free to do so in the context of abortion or not. bear in mind, linda,
6:25 pm
we're talking here through an international audience who may not be aware all of the my new shy of, of how american law and, and governance works. how in 1973, good judges of established the choosing to have an abortion is a right protected by the constitution. and yet to day that's been overturned? well, we haven't judicial system that was set on a mission by the constitution. and particularly the supreme court to sort of be the institution to step and in those areas where majority rule could end up oppressing minorities. and you can trace this back to the federalist papers in the late about the time the constitution was ratified. and so the supreme court has fulfilled that role, you know, it's not elected, it's, it's deliberative as opposed to democratic which are, there are other institutions. and so in fulfilling that role on an in
6:26 pm
a number of areas that are in fact written in the constitution, the court has recognized a thing called substitute due process in the 14th amendment. and it is at part of that the court has recognized that there are certain areas that are sacred and should not be subject to majority rule unless the majority rule can come for it was an extremely good reason to justify burdening those areas of people's lives. so what happens is, are we heard about those? so those trigger laws that are already in place in states will attempts now be made by conservatives to band the procedure a soon as as possible. absolutely. every single state where the majority of the state majority is in favor of banning abortion will in
6:27 pm
fact you sell and 13 of them will are in effect now ah, literally now. so if there were an abortion this afternoon, it would be subject to those laws. is there any way i do not? yeah, but is there any way of, of, of, of turning this where i mean, constitutionally what more illegally what, what happens that water campaigners after due to gifts the court to reverse this decision. that's not really an option other than amending the constitution or attempting to change the composition court back the battle has to turn to the political battle ground. at this point, it's important to know that abortion is still going to be legal in those states that don't have majorities, that would bayonet. so we got this, you know, polarized pattern of states in america, where in one state,
6:28 pm
it's completely legal and another state. it's criminal and so there's either going to have to be federal action and, or as one of your, one of the activists was saying, there's going to have to be such an enormous political outcry to take out of office those conservative majorities that are banning abortion across the states this to submit to is it unprecedented? ah, that's, that's a good question. it's, it's not unprecedented in the sense that we have had extraordinary decisions over rule before. i mean, ah, brown vs board of education over roll plessy versus ferguson, which was even older on 58 years old on in brown. did that in 1954 and end in segregation at least in the public schools. so it's not
6:29 pm
unprecedented in that sense. i mean there and it was equally on cotton where it's not more so as the supreme court wouldn't exactly say is unprecedented. but these enormous in the law in the arena of constitutional law. and there are, you know, in the opinion, there is a great deal of indication that this conservative court wants to cut back. not just this. right. but a number of other rights that previous supreme court have recognized under the process. one more questions, lynn? what about the ripple effect of this decision? could it harold greater restrictions in other areas of private life? it definitely could, it will take some time because cases take a while to arrive and come through the federal system. and that has to percolate for, for many, many years. i mean, this is why, you know, of course,
6:30 pm
in cases have filled so many of the supreme court terms. because abortion, you know, anti abortion people have been trying to get the issue back before the court for all the time. but you're going to see that in other areas. i mean, there are aspects of this decision that really threaten what is recognized as a funded mental right mary. which in turn, you know, obviously affect same sex marriage. you're going to see there are other fundamental whites that have been recognized that are not written in the constitution, right? to choose who's in your household you know, any number the rights use contraception. i'm all of these are recognized as here's another one, the right not to injure children, to, to public school or the right to learn a language all manner of fundamental rights have been recognized by the supreme court and then the due process. and there is
6:31 pm
a clear movement of thought among this conservative majority cuttings. that whole swa of the process. right. good. it really scary time for us in terms of change in the premiums that we're on, sir. i think protect really good still till in many's actually for being with us lind rambo, that allows us professor of lord texas and m university. thank you. former vice president mike pence is treated saying to day life one by overturning roe vs wade. the supreme court of the united states has given the american people a new beginning for life. and i commend the justices in the majority for having the courage of their convictions. jo appointment is an anti abortion rights activist, is the executive director of texas alliance for life. he joins us now. live from austin, texas. good. have you with us, joe? what do you make of that? thank you. a certain where a static or a static with his opinion,
6:32 pm
after 50 years filing, the court has remedied a terrible wrong that came down with revis's weight and reinforced with planned parenthood b. casey, and has allowed the states like the state of texas to protect unborn babies from the tragedy of abortion. what do you make of president obama's a statement that, ah, to day, it's the most intensely personal decision that someone can make, has been relegated to the whims of politicians and idealogues, attacking the essential freedoms of millions of americans. while he's neglecting that, there are 2 people involved, the pregnant woman and her unborn child, who is the person science tells us that has told us that for more than a century. and finally, the court has recognized that the right to abortion is not in our constitution. nor is it in the history of this country. it's an issue for the legislatures and the texas legislature and many other state legislatures will take action to protect born babies and to provide compassionate alternatives to abortion. that's certainly
6:33 pm
what texas has done. you've taking away though, a woman's right to make decisions of her own body, aren't you correct? but not the should. the, the state has an interest in protecting the body of the unborn child. of course that body within her is not her own body science tells us that we all know that we all know the unborn child, the baby. we all see those babies on the ultra sound, moving around with fingers and toes, and the people likes president obama. want to allow abortion to happen right up to the moment of birth. and i think most people think that is absolutely a purge a point. so certainly the state of texas and other states have a interest in protecting and the life of that innocent unborn child for what about an in cases of rape incest. when the, the health of the mother is a severe risk the, the bill that texas has passed and will go into effect in a matter of weeks. it's called the human life protection act has exception for the
6:34 pm
medical emergencies that are in when, when the pregnancy would threaten the mother's life. but in those very tragic cases of rape, when the woman is a victim, the state of texas has an obligation to do everything possible for that woman. but the, but we have to remember there's another victim, and that is the unborn child who is now coming to be. and the state of texas must protect the life of the got born child. so we want to do what's best for the mother . and for the unborn child, and that will be the case when our law is human, like protection that goes into effect. germany, thanks for being with us. your point them that the executive director of texas alliance for life. thank you. ah, here were the news from al jazeera survivors in afghanistan, infant barely coping with the most destructive earthquake in decades. and now an
6:35 pm
aftershock has killed even more people in the remote heart hit area at least 1100 people, including 121 children of died. entire villages have been destroyed. pico people in particular province, a desperate for food, shelter, and drinking water. out of cirrus a summer, bon jovi reports there is little hope of finding any more survivors after wednesday's earthquake. now the grim task is to recover bodies under the rubble and buried them. again. thousands of of guns have been killed or injured on friday morning, another jolt killed 5 more people in the southeast and district of their hammond was not home. he says, all his family is dead and his house is no more liberal funneled won't go mother the middle and they were here. the quite suddenly happened at night. a houses were destroyed. talk people about family were martyred. that i said i should cover the
6:36 pm
taliban officials of reached the worst affected areas and assured people of support but limited helicopters, destroyed roads and the lack of essentials. there isn't much they can do beyond assurances with after decades of corruption mismanagement war. the lack of everything including equipment, hospital supplies, and even road atlanta thunder died, humanitarian crisis is worth and because of sanctioned and the lack of funds after the taliban to go. good love here. you model cody, i have been appointed by the islamic emery to be in charge of the aid coordination . we will help them out to use the wounded and the people whose homes were destroyed. as hospital struggled to cope and thought made homeless humanitarian aid has solely started trickling into the remote province of a host and figure go it good. good. when you are, these are the items are being given out according to the domestic needs of the people. there's flower pulses, sugar, and obviously they are in
6:37 pm
a situation where their houses have been destroyed. so we've included all types of food items according to the needs of the families. many have crossed into neighboring pocket son to seek medical help, and 8 convoys are arriving from the rest and border green army plains have brought aid, including hundreds of tents, blankets, and medicine. and also a team of indian red happens workers and a workers face major challenges in dire villages have been wiped out. it will take actually years for these very did you communities to recover not only from the tragedy of losing entire families, but also on how they could rebuild is michael holmes, motor homes that were the investment of lifetime sized ologist expect more aftershocks after the chandel earthquake for those who already lost everything, survival remains the biggest fear from a job aide out of their life. now to ali latifah,
6:38 pm
who's in the eastern province practitioner from where aid is being flowed into the worst effected areas. what's the latest really it's, it's the same issue. they're trying to get as much of a and as possible. and today's aftershock only made it worse. and it's especially worse for the people in those areas. you know, because these are people who were trying to live and they're broke and shatter, tattered homes trying to sort of get on from having just buried their relatives and their neighbors. and then all of a sudden in that already damaged home, they see another earthquake and they see more death. so it's really a reminder that they're in an area where these kinds of things are very likely to happen and getting away from it because they live in such a remote area and may not necessarily have the financial means is a very, very big deal. and also a very big challenge because there are
6:39 pm
a lot of areas that i want us on that are prone to different kinds of natural disasters or areas that are prone to flooding into earthquakes into landslide. and until the government, you know, this was an issue with the previous islamic republic until the government can really come with proper systems of how to address these disasters. people feel vulnerable just living where they have lived for decades, because they know that the systems aren't necessarily there. i, let's see if you're reporting live there from back to that, i'm going to stop right. thanks to the governor of ukraine's eastern lou hand screech and says his forces will have to withdraw from the city of savannah. don't ask. russian troops have taken control of most of the strategic city and other local official says than here by district of hurstbourne has been fully occupied by russian forces. d just nicely dr. greg done said you to now it makes no sense to stay in the positions that have been destroyed for many months of fighting because the number of casualties and poorly fortified areas will grow every day. therefore,
6:40 pm
the decision was made regarding our defenders who are there. they've already received the order to withdraw to new positions, to new fortified territories, and carry out full scale assaults from there and inflict losses on the enemy. rushers focus, it's offensive on the don bass region in the east since being repelled from the capital and other areas. it now controls a large swathe of territory all the way down to crimea, which it annexed in 2014 with ukrainian forces. now expected to withdraw from savannah and ask the russians are said to be advancing on the neighboring city of little chance. it is being heavily on boarded. andre, as i got, nick is the former ukrainian minister of defense. he is currently advising the governor to join us now live from the cave. and what do you make of a of the, the withdrawal of ukrainian forces from savannah demet. ah, well let's, let's look at what's generally happening. ah, russia is going as fast an an as far as again. so if they take
6:41 pm
one down and they still have some forces, they will move to the other. and then if they still have some voices, they will move to the other and that ingles, new plane. so our, our job was to reduce their capabilities to the possible minimum. but it makes sense to do, obviously in the case if you have some operational advantage or at least some operational parity. if you see there to lisa operational bar, it is no longer there. you can, you can technically retreats to the other area and continue her resistance that so obviously you green and of course, as are not going to are to give don't bass. just term, you know, it was out there was, are the resistance. but or if the commanders and we have excellent like world last ah ration of the leaders, they're in there in, in that area. and if they decided that it's time to, to move, then it means that it's time to move from a strategically. it means nothing. ok, but president zalinski said that the fate of sellers and i had school determines
6:42 pm
the face of the don bass region. it ukrainian forces on the back foot here i ukrainian forces operationally moving to the other positions. but obviously, ah, this is there, are they asked is not all are gone bass region and they were talking about, there are other areas. of course, it's important because it was administrative for 8 years. it was administrative. center of one of the sub regions are there. but it's not like her, you know, there's still other towns and some of them are very, very important. like science matters, get cetera, et cetera. so. so there are other areas which we need to defend, and that's what are you bringing on forces will, will be doing do ukrainian forces operating in the east, have the weapons that they need to keep fighting russian forces right now i, are they getting enough supplies quickly enough no, and that's the reason why they are in a worse operational position. and that's exactly what is the problem. because they
6:43 pm
are currently waiting for the supplies from the west, which we have discussed with a couple months. but the majority of the supplies which been promised to green and stealing transit or still being kind of just got them committed. and we're talking about hundreds of hundreds of barrels of powered servers and so substantial substantial capabilities. so they're still waiting and they are not coming very fast. and that's why we have these disparities. so it's sometimes disparities like $1.00 to $10.00. and actually that's what we need to understand. that was a such a proportion of ones, the gen, the fact that they don't versus going extremely slow, extremely painful brush is actually a remarkable human sort of weeping and forces because they are holding, being out numbered and outdone severely. so i think that as soon as we get the weapons, yeah, we definitely can start the counter offensive. good talk to somebody, thanks and date for being with a sun's rays. i got in keith
6:44 pm
a u. n. finding suggests that the israeli military fired the shot that killed out a 0 journal is sherlyn elbow up latrene was killed one on the assignment and janine in the occupied westbank al jazeera bernard smith reports from west jerusalem. oh, the circumstances of serene abu atlas killing on may. the 11th, had been investigated by several international news organizations. all came to the conclusion. it was a bullet fired from an israeli rifle that killed the al jazeera correspondent and injured her colleague, elisa moody as they covered a military raid in the occupied west bank. and this is now, the united nations agrees at around a half past 6 in the morning. as 4 of the journalists turned into the street leading to the camp. wearing bullet proof helmets and flak jackets with press markings, several single seemingly well aimed bullets were fired towards them from the direction of the israeli security forces. one single bullet injured elisa moody in
6:45 pm
the shoulder and another single bullet hit a black lay in the head and killed her instant her. israel military says the investigations into sharon's death are biased and that the journalist was in no way shot intentionally. and it is not possible to determine whether she was killed by palestinian gunmen who fired uncontrollably at his surroundings or by an idea of soldier by accident. ah, israel's military also says the palestinian authority should hand over the bullet the kill cheering and take part in a joint investigation. but the palestinians say they can't trust these rarely, military to conduct a transparent investigation of itself. law and aris memorial service, the palestinian prime minister said that instead, these railey should hand over the rifle that its military admits may have been you that are the you and human rights chief, michelle bartlett, wants israel to open a criminal investigation into sharing about atlas death and 24 sentences won't
6:46 pm
present joe biden to get the us involved in its own investigation. bernard smith, outer sarah, west jerusalem. so son saw her as a human rights lawyer and former deputy journal general director of a dollar the legal center for arab menorah. she writes in israel, she joins us now live from i for. what's your view on this un finding? good evening go. well, 1st of all, i must say that the mere fact that the you and human rights office of the commissioner. but charlotte decided to issue an independent investigation, or it's basically officially called an independent monitoring is very, very important because we have the most highest human rights. but the of the u. n. conducting an independent monitoring or investigation in the assassination of the affair of shooting a blockage, saying basically,
6:47 pm
and strengthening the conclusion from day one that she was assassinated by a bullet shot from the israeli army in gene that morning on may 11th and strengthening the other investigations that were conducted by the sea and washington post and 18. now we're talking about human rights body of the you and that reports to the secretary in general. but i must, having said all not, i must also mention that on the other hand, the commissioner works on the national level. the responsibility of this body is basically to make the states comply with the international obligations of countries with international treaties that they signed and ratified. and this is why, by not chance the a mrs bachelor, the commissioner basically concluded that is, should conduct a criminal investigation because on a national level based on international lawrence, this is its obligation. now,
6:48 pm
of course, all the evidence now having the commissioner's conclusion are very, very important. even though the commissioner doesn't have an authority to open and independent criminal investigation because the jurisdiction is solidly with the hands of the i. c. c. but still, when it will come to the i, c, c, it will have all the witnesses, all the evidence. and the conclusion of this very important you and above the affair human rights, which as i said, is the highest human rights. but the, as the one, israel ministry says, all of the investigation so far the story is death are biased, but it wants the bullet so that it conduct it's a can conduct its own investigation. what do you make of israel's response? well, i look surprised. basically i no one is surprised because every time a you and inquiry commission and also today after the completion of the
6:49 pm
commissioner, every time they say that the un is biased, the un is anti semitic. they never even allow to any members of any un inquiry commissions to even enter the west bank or enter guys an order to a conductor on investigation. and they never collaborate with. and now the fact that they also argue that they need the bullets and without the bullet, they cannot conduct an investigation. well, the bullet to true the bullet is a very important evidence in criminal proceedings. but on the other hand, it is not crucial in order to prevent israel from conducting a criminal investigation. i want to give an example for 1st of all, as, as the commissioner, as stated in the report today, not only should it was assassinated, there were 58 people who were killed by the israeli army in the west bank from the beginning of 202022, there was never an investigation and all these cases,
6:50 pm
probably, or in most of them, that is res. we're not able to get the bullets and all those almost 60 cases. if we take another example in all the got some wars in cost less than 2008 or 2009201220142018. snipers killed hundreds of palestinians in west bank and gaza and the bullets stay in the territory of gaza, generally. and still they did never they did. they argue that without a bullet we can never conduct an investigation. now israel's argument goes in line with its systematic a lot of accountability to its soldiers, with a systematic providing impunity to soldiers and all that same say commands in order to be any one accounts above because they're only political ah, a cause and political a model is basically,
6:51 pm
to provide the general impunity and that happens throughout the years. so i'm sorry, i'm going to, i'm sorry to interrupt you, we're out of time. so sounds i had that in haifa. i just wanna bring you some breaking news here. missouri has become the 1st you are state to ban abortion. after the u. s. supreme court overturned abortion rights appending the, the case known as roe vs wade will have more on that. if you stay with us here on out as the are also head. oh i see some red dog has got a gun though has gone. oh my goodness in sport, an unexpected hazard. a golf tournament in the united states? oberon rack one ah
