welcome to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm lynda kinkade. ahead on "cnn newsroom" -- tensions flaring between israel and gaza, militants with plenty lobbed from each side. we'll go live to southern israel with the details. and right now america on a vote-a-rama session on the senate floor. we'll look at what is in the
bill. and monkeypox cases rising around the world. we'll look at the parallels between this outbreak and the early days of the aid crisis. live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom" with lynda kinkade. >> it is 11:00 a.m. in israel and gaza, day three of deepening losshostilities that began frid. the palestinians saying israeli airstrikes are to blame for killing seven people saturday including four people in a refugee camp in northern gaza. the israeli military denies it was responsible and released a video that it says shows a military rocket going off course. israel says that is what caused the deadly explosion in jabalya.
whatever the cause, here is what one palestinian woman said after her home was destroyed. th >> translator: i started to cry and treatment and there was an st airstrike which put our homes to the ground. what can i do, where will we go tonight? >> cities across southern israel have been sounding warning sirens as military rockets streak out of gaza by the dozens. military says the majority all landing in unpopulated areas. but one did strike a highrise building close to gaza. no one was hurt but a local official had this to say. >> translator: the rocket penetrated the ceiling and hit a storage room in the house. the family had entered the shelter when they heard the sirens and this is probably what
saved them from the rocket and shrapnel. of course we're now providing them with support. >> we're learning another senior commanders of the islamic jihad has been killed. ell elliott, the death toll has risen and includes six children and now another top militant. >> reporter: that's right. and we've heard more thuds of the iron dome aerial defense system taking out, rockets being fired from gaz this morning, we know that there were sirens on the outskirts of jerusalem, rockets aimed towards jerusalem. so no sign of things calming down as you say at a second senior commander from islamic jihad was killed last night in an airstrike by israel. israel saying that it has now taken out the entire top brass of islamic jihad in the gaza
strip. as as for the deaths of seven people, israel is adamant that it was not from -- it was not as a result of israeli fire. the prime ministers spokesperson underlining that in a statement. >> tonight islamic jihad terrorists fired a rocket towards israel which fell short inside gaza hitting a panhandle home in the jabalaya neighborhood and tragically killing at least four children. islamic jihad is killing palestinian children. one of four rockets fired from gaza towards israel, lands inside the gaza strip. iran's proxies including islamic jihad have a long history of hiding behind civilians to target israeli civilians. the world should be outraged at this terrorist group targeting
innocent israelis and killing innocent gazaens. >> in a briefing about an hour ago, he was saying that after the last operation by israel's 6:51 p.m. more than two hours before the explosion, and also emphasizing that israel wasn't operating at that time or in that area. we've also seen video of a rocket kind of careening through the night sky in a bitup area and slamming into a building. again, we can't independently verify that, but israelis saying that is also showing the rocket misfire by jihad which was the cause of those deaths of those seven people including four children last night. and the idf spokesperson adding that now 20% of all rockets being fired by islamic jihads misfiring out of a total of 580 up to 6:30 this morning. >> yeah, certainly a major
escalation in the region. elliott gotkine, thanks very much. the head of the international atomic energy agency is sounding the alarm over shelling zaporizhzhia nuclear plant. his statement suggests that the region dodged a bullet and explosions could have led to a nuclear disaster felt far beyond ukraine. moscow and kyiv are still trading blame over who is responsible. president zelenskyy pointing the finger at russia. >> translator: unfortunately we have a significant worsening of the situation around the zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. russian terrorists became the first in the world to use a nuclear plant for terror. the biggest in europe. we will draw the world's attention to this and insist on new sanctions against russia for creating such a global threat.
>> meanwhile ukraine says russia keeps trying to push ahead with its offensive in the east and moscow is reportedly moving more forces to neighboring belarus. for more, jason carroll is joining us live from kyiv. good to have you with us. so i want to start with that threat on europe's largest nuclear plant. what is the state, is it damaged? >> reporter: well, look, it is a grave situation and to answer your question, there is so much unknown which is why the international community wants to get investigators there on the ground. i mean, there are reports that because of the missile strikes they are one of the six reactors, power to that reactor had to be shut down. so you can imagine that is why international inspectors want to get their eyes on exactly what is happening there. again, this is the biggest nuclear power facility of its kind in europe in terms of what has been happening there, you've
got ukraine and russia both trading blame in terms of who is responsible for the missile strikes in and around the area. we can tell you that ukrainians have been working there at the facility alongside russians, but it is under russian occupation and has been so ever since they seized control of the plant back in early march. you heard there from president zelenskyy, he has been very vocal about this issue saying that this is a threat that russia is causing a threat not only to ukraine but to europe in general. also the head of the iaea has weighed in on the issue expressing his concern saying the following "i'm extremely concerned about the shelling yesterday at europe's largest nuclear power plant which underlies the very risk of a nuclear disaster that can threaten public health and the environment in ukraine and beyond. the iaea also saying that according to ukraine there is no damage to the reactors and there has been no radiation leak, but
the bottom line is that what needs to happen is the eu says that russia needs to allow international in-interest he can tors in there to check out exactly what is happening on the ground. >> and ukraine's army says that making belarus is testing the readiness of its special operations. what is the risk that belarus will intervene to help russia? >> reporter: that is still an unanswered question. i can tell you early on as you know in the fades of the war, belarus was used as a launching pad for russia to go in and send some of their troops and their artillery across the border. they were pushed back, but those feelings are very raw. i can tell you with those who live on the border, we were actually there just a few days ago speaking to people who live on the border between russia and belarus, the people there feel betrayed on the ukrainian side, they feel as though they used to have friends there in belarus,
so they feel that know that trust has been broken. but in terms of military action, i think that there is basically little surprise at this point that there seems to be more of a russian buildup on that side of the border. >> jason carroll for us in kyiv, thanks very much. this just into cnn, we are getting word that four more grain ships left from ukrainian ports this morning. the country's infrastructure minister saying that the vessels are loaded with close to 170,000 metric tons of food. they are headed for italy, china and turkey. ukraine resumed grain exports this week and is hoping to soon be able to load up to five cargo vessels every day. international officials hope the exports will ease global food shortages. and a withering drought is one problem facing people in east africa. another is the war in ukraine. some shipments of much needed grain are finally leaving ukraine, but that is hardly
enough to solve the global food crisis. sam kiley reports from northern kenya. >> reporter: it is not something being measured for, this is an urgent effort to keep him from the grain. his arms so thin for his age and height, he is categorized as severely acutely malnourished. he needs urgent help. he is about 2 and he can't walk. he is one of 6 million kids across the horn of and came that the u.n. says is on the brink of starvation. as food for her youngest, but nothing for the other children. except for a little wheat ground into a handful of flour. she says her husband died last year, she has no livestock, she survived by selling charcoal where she can.
but food prices have tripled this year. the evidence that humanity's ancestors lived here 1.5 million years ago has been found in places like this. now water the very source of life is being measured out in coffee cups. and 11.6 million people across northeastern africa are short of water in the worst drought for 40 years. here in northern kenya, local officials say at least 85% of animals once owned by nomadic people are dead. and the u.n. says 1.5 million head of livestock have perished in kenya and across the horn of africa close to 20 million people face acute food shortages. now the price of staple food have more than doubled in many parts of kenya since the disruption of global food supplies by russia's invasion of ukraine. in short, europe's war may soon start killing people in africa. this community is marginal, it
is living on the brink, the very brink of survival. but so are millions of people right across the region. and critical to their long term survival is the stability of kenya, a country that is facing drought, it is facing massive increases in the price of fuel and food and now facing general elections. instability here causes chaos across the whole horn of africa. the increased band across the county has led to dozens of murders and thousands of livestock lost in raids and now met with military operations and a dawn to dusk curfew. around 200 machine guns and other weapons were captured in one recent police operation loond along with ammunition. nomads are moving south into major towns and they have invaded wild life sanctuaries
competing with protected and often endangered animals for food and water. the results can be fatal. two men were recently killed by a female elephant near here. but it is violence between humans that is putting the most traditionally stable country in the horn of africa at risk. >> anytime you get people that are hinungry and without other options, you have a security situation. and northern kenya, we're bordered by south sudan, ethiopia, somalia, all of which have had or are still in the grip of conflict that spews small arms. and so you have a lot of weapons up here and increasing hunger. so, yeah, that is a security concern. >> reporter: that concern will endure as long as this landscape continues to dry out and war in europe chokes food supplies to
africa's most needy. sam kiley, cnn, northern kenya. >> if you would like to safely and securely help people in ukraine who may be in need of shelter, food and water, go to cnn.com/impact. taiwan's premiere calls military exercises arrogant and accuses beijing of trying to disrupt regional peace and stability. the anti-ship missiles amid chinese military exercises around the self-governing island. taiwan defense military says the drills were a simulated attack against the main island of taiwan. this of course comes after the men industry said multiple chinese aircraft, naval vessels were detected around the strait sunday morning. and drones in-tluded on intruded on islands around taiwan.
still ahead, the u.s. senate working through the night as democrats push a sweeping health care bill towards the finish line. and we'll go to the cnn weather center for the latest. for people who are a little intense about hydration. neutrogena® hydro boost lightweight. frfragrance-free. 48 hour hydration. for that heaealthy skin glow. neutrogena®. for people w with skin.
a marathon voting session is under way in the u.s. senate, democrats hoping to push through a sweeping health care climate and tax bill that tackles some of the party's key objectives. but it has to clear what is known as a vote-a-rama, a series of back to back amendment votes with no time limit. while some on the left have argued the bill doesn't go far enough, senate democrats say they are confident that it will reach president biden's desk soon. >> i'm very optimistic that by monday this bill will be headed to the house and from there to the president's desk. this is just the latest in a string of significant accomplishments by congress and our president. >> we have legislation which
unlike the renlgoriginal "build better" ignores the needs of our country, pre-k, affordable housing, higher education and many other desperate needs. >> cnn's jessica dean has a closer look at what is included in that bill and where things go from here. >> reporter: senate democrats are pushing through and midway through this complex budget process that will allow them to pass legislation focused on climate, health care and tax provisions with just the senate testimoniesy democrats. they will not need senate republicans. but because they are using this complex process, it is taking hours and hours of process to get to the end. we do expect tos pass after senator manchin and the majority leader chuck schumer coming to an agreement and then late last week getting senator kyrsten
sinema on board, we expect that all 50 democrats are on board with this, but they have to get through the process of a vote-a-rama which can be hours and hours of endless amendments and it is nobody's guess how long that will take. when it comes to the climate provisions, some $369 billion, largest investment ever from the senate into climate that we've ever seen. they are hoping that these provisions will lower carbon emissions by 40% by the year 2030. when it comes to health care, they are talking about extending affordable care act subsidies for three years and also for the first time medication will be allowed to negotiate drug prices on certain drugs. and with the tax provisions, a corporate minimum tax of 15%, also a 1% excise tax on stock buybacks. again, a lot of this stuff democrats didn't think that they would get through because earlier this summer senator joe
manchin, the sort of conservative democrat from west virginia did not support the climate provisions, but they were able to come to this agreement. once it passes out of the senate, it will then go back -- it will then go to the house. we're expecting the house to come back into session, they are currently on recess, pass this, and then it goes to president biden for his signature. jessica dean, cnn, capitol hill. well, authorities say roads coming in and out of california's death valley national park are critically damaged and the park remains closed. that is after a storm on friday caused extreme flooding. they closed access into the park and say 1,000 people were stranded inside. the park received 1.46 inches of rain almost matching the previous daily record. joining me now is meteorologist derek van dam. so much rain in such a small amount of time. >> yeah, and that was actually 68% of death valley's annual
average rainfall in just a few hours. and there is also a chance of flooding today for a few other locations. we'll highlight them thousand. we have flood watches for eastern kentucky, areas that have been hit hardest by the flooding not a week ago, parts of west virginia, southern florida and then a newly issued flood watch for wisconsin as well as portions of minnesota and ohio. they have had several inches of rainfall within the past couple of days. more precipitation on the way. you can see the bulk of the rainfall across kentucky, really located across the central parts of the state away from the hardest hit areas but nonetheless any additional rainfall of course could lead to localized flash flooding in that area as summertime thunderstorms continue to fire up. weather prediction center has a moderate risk of flash flooding today across the greater milwaukee area, include chicago suburbs. some of these storms could produce 1 to 2 inches or locally higher amounts of rainfall as
they start to fire up later this afternoon along a frontal boundary draped across the upper midwest. another story we're monitoring is the heat, heat alerts including many populated areas of the eastern seaboard, boston, new york, philadelphia, this is including upstate new york as well and into the hudson valley. it is today will range from the lower to middle 90s, but it is when you factor in the humidity, that is when it really starts to feel balm any outside. and central part of the country, heat indices in triple digits. we'll top 100 degrees in portland, oregon. and by the way we are monitoring the tropics starting to come alive, a 40% of our fourth named storm developing here in the coming days. >> derek van dam, thanks so much. as monkeypox spreads around the world, so does the need to make people aware of the
dangers. ahead, how this adult film entertainer is sharing his experience with the disease on social media to help educate others. i ran twice, i won twice and did much better the second time than i did the first getting millions and millions of votes. >> former u.s. president donald trump rehashes old grievances while teasing a future white house run. those details ahead. the tempur-pedic breeze° makes sleep...feel cool. because the tempur-breeze° transfers heat away from your body... ...so you feel cool, night t after night. experience the mattress ranked #1 in customer satisfaction by j.d. power, three years in a row. if you have diabetes, then getting on the dexcom g6 is the single most important thing you can do. it eliminates painful fingersticks, helps lower a1c, and it's coved by medicare. before dexcom g6, i was frustrated. all of that finger-pricking and alof that pain, my a1cas still stuck.

i'm lindynda kinkade. we're keeping a close eye on the monkeypox virus outbreak as it spreads around the world. u.s. centers for disease control says more than 7500 cases are reported here in the u.s., more than any other country. the biden administration declared the outbreak a public health emergency on thursday. and there are more than 2800 -- 28,000 cases in 88 countries. countries highlighted in the color red and orange on this map have the most cases right now. health officials warn that the majority of reported cases are in men who have sex with men but they caution that anyone can get monkeypox. and salma abdelaziz spoke with an adult entertain who are wants to use his experience with the virus to help curb its spread. >> hey guys. day 15 of monkeypox. >> reporter: after this adult fill ementertainer silver steele
tested positive, he started to document his painful struggle from isolation in texas. >> i don't want to have anyone go through this, so if my story will possibly help people change their behaviors or attempt to get vaccinated, it will be worth it. >> reporter: it is a trend, social media is key to raising awareness at ground zero of this health crisis. the gay community. 98% of cases so far are among men who have sex with men according to the world health organization. but sex is not required to transmit the virus. it is passed on primarily through close skin on skin physical contact. do you feel that there is a stigma? >> 100%. first of all, it is easy to label it as a guy disease, but this virus doesn't go, well, i'm going to find a guy person, it will just find a human. >> reporter: and dr. reeves says he witnessed the early days of the outbreak.
>> a lot of us were in the dark to start with. >> reporter: and now health care workers are playing catchup, trying to vaccinate those at risk faster than the virus can spread. clinics like this one had to react quickly to the outbreak. training their staff, preparing tests, giving out dozens of vaccination as day. it has put a strain on health services and there is no sign the demand is letting up. word of mouth and public messaging are driving more and are no more to come forward with the shots. >> i think people are taking it seriously and making sure that they protect themselves and the rest of the community. >> reporter: but monkeypox cases are still on the rise and with limited vaccine supply, containment still presents a challenge. >> seeing some friends of mine had it and they had it quite bad. so i felt better. >> reporter: and health care workers are scrambling to access historically marginalized population. >> one of the concerns that i
have are people that will get the vaccine, that can relieve people who are less up with the health services. >> reporter: and so alongside public health message willing, grass roots voices are making an impact. so far more than a million people around the world have viewed steele's video. how does that make you feel to know that your message is being hard? >> i feel fulfilled. fulfilled. that what i'm going through, what other people are going through, isn't for nothing. because i'm telling you, you don't want this. it is painful. >> reporter: a community rallying to prevent a new disease from taking hold. salma abdelaziz, cnn, london. for more, let's bring in a contributing correspondent for science magazine. good to have you with us. >> thanks for having me.
>> and so you wrote as an infectious disease reporter you've seen how deadly stigma can be and as someone living with hiv, you've experienced the suffering that stigma can cause. what is the specific risk with monkeypox? >> well, i mean, stigma has a lot of effects, of course. and if you take a disease like monkeypox related to sex, you know, it can be even just in the way that it looks, it can be very stigmatizing. the name itself stigmatizing. all of these things together, what they do, they make it harder for people to seek care, to access care, to maybe even get tested in the first place. you know, to just accept in a way that is this a risk for you. i remember very well i went to tanzania years ago and i spoke with people who were living with hiv back then and i asked them what the biggest reason was that they thought that we still weren't getting ahead of hiv and they said that it is the stigma.
and years later when i got my own diagnosis, i was standing in front of the mirror trying to say the words i'm hiv positive. and there is something that you have to deal with, you have to bring yourself and that disease in a way -- some relation. and that is what stigma is to some extent. so it is a huge concern and this disease as it is in hiv. >> tell us more about the parallels you see with the response to monkeypox right now and the early days of the aids crisis. >> so i think a lot of people are kind of taking the wrong lessons sometimes for hiv, maybe they don't know the history that well. remember while there was a huge amount of stigmaization, and men who had sex with men were already exposed to that stigmaization before lli -- hiv.
and it led to a lag of care, a lack of access and a lack of caring in a way. so people tried to ignore this disease early on and they acted way too late because they felt it only affected one sector of the community that they didn't care about so much. and that is one of the things that we really should take from the early days of the aids pandemic is that it is -- you know, it is important to jump on these things really early on and to give people the care that people need. we've seen in this crisis again that it didn't happen early on. >> and in terms of access to care, i mean, monkeypox is not novel virus. there is a vaccine that can prevent it. what is your response that there is not enough and they are talking about splitting it? >> i think this is where you have to go and look at the bigger picture. the truth is that the world has never developed the vaccine against monkeypox because while
there were people suffering and dying from monkeypox in some countries in western and central africa, the rest of the world didn't really care. instead we developed newer vaccines for smallpox because we were worried about for instance a bioterrorism event for smallpox. so now we have a vaccine developed against smallpox and that can probably -- you know that is what the data says at the moment protect quite well against monkeypox. and this vaccine now is not available in the amounts that it should be because we haven't really thought about will kind of eventuality. and, again, when monkeypox started spreading when we saw these first cases in may, we didn't immediately jump on it as the world in a way that we maybe should have. so a lot of these mistakes that we keep making i think. >> and so in terms of the data that we've got, the w.h.o. says that 98% of cases of monkeypox are amongst men who have sex with men. can you explain from your
reporting why it is more common amongst the lgbtq community? >> i think this is an important point because if we give this beta and we address the people who most need to be addressed, the gay community, gay men and our sexual networks, we also need to explain why it is because people rightly say the virus doesn't care whether someone is gay or not. that is true. but the virus does use -- it exploits human connections, it moves along the connections between human beings. and we've known for a while that within the community, people have a lot of sexual partners and that changes how a virus behaves in that kind of network. so it is easier for the virus to spread in that kind of network if there is a segment that has a lot of connections with each other. and that is what we're seeing and it just makes the community much more vulnerable to a virus like this spreading. it doesn't mean that there are not other networks where the virus might be able to spread. it hasn't made its way yet into
these networks. what we're seeing is isolated cases on the edges of sexual network where maybe a household contact or someone is infected. but for the moment it is spreading primarily within these networks and that is where we have to concentrate our efforts because that is our best chance of stopping the virus before it maybe mutates and changes or maybe moves in to other networks and it gets even harder to combat this. >> really good to get your perspective, thanks so much for your time. >> thank you. a potentially hopeful sign in the fight against covid-19 as nations around the world report a slowdown in new cases. some countries including russia have seen a dramatic rise in new infections over the last week. the world health organization reported wednesday that the global tally of new cases was down 9% compared to the week before. here in the u.s., president joe biden has tested negative for covid after a week long rebound
infection. mr. biden will remain in isolation until he tests negative a second time. former u.s. president donald trump received a hero's welcome in texas saturday. he was there to close out the annual conservative political action conference in dallas. during his remarks, the former president repeated his baseless claims that the 2020 election was stolen. and hinted that he could run again in 2024. >> the election was rigged and stolen and now our country is being systemically destroyed. if i renounced my beliefs, if i agreed to stay silent, if i stayed home or if i stayed in my basement, the persecution of donald trump would stop immediately. that is what they want me do, but i can't do that. and i will not do that because i love our country and i love the
people of our country so much. >> while trump did not announce another run for the white house, he did overwhelmingly win the cpac straw poll. nearly 70 respe% of attendees s they would prefer to see trump as a nominee in 2024. he painted a kms. mal ve dismal the country. >> our country is being destroyed more from the inside than out. america is on the edge of an abyss and our movement is the only force that can save it. we have to seize the opportunity to deal with the radical left, socialist lunatics and fascists and we have to hit them very, very hard. has to be a crippling defeat.
fallout from the january 6 riot at the u.s. capitol was also front and center at this year's conference. such as this mock jail cell with a man inside wearing an orange jump suit and a red make america great again hat and pretending to cry. still to come, ukrainian forces push russians out of a village in the south. but why the area still resemble as ghost town even though russian troops have been gone for weeks. that story ahead. you said you'd never do a lot of things. but you never knew all the things a dog couldld do for yo. and with r resolve you never hae to worry about the mess. love the love, resolve the mese. i i typed in my dad's name... and i found his childhood home. he's been wondering about the address for seventy years...

million people worldwide have trouble putting food on the table because of the war. and ukraine is also bracing for a possible russian offensive in the south where ukrainian troops have been slowly regaining some ground. a cnn crew went to liberated villages and the residents aren't back home even though russian troops are gone. >> reporter: the road is not safe. we're taking it across country, saying his forces recaptured it from the russians following a two week artillery battle. that was a month ago. it is still deserted. only abandoned pets and farm yard animals here now. when you come in here and look at the farm here, the animals left out, the dog in a terrible state, how do you feel?
>> i feel quite sad. >> reporter: when can people come back to this village? >> i think when we will go further forward. further to the next line of the villages. >> reporter: unexploded shells litter the ground. the end of war a long ways off he says. >> i think it is not real finished very fast because we are not so powerful right now. >> reporter: during the attack here, ukrainian forces estimate they killed about 50 russian soldiers injured, about 100 more the big challenge for the ukrainians now mustering enough men to advance further. the frontline just a few kilometers away. a single artillery shell hits its target. the troops that took the village last month have moved on. >> we are planning to move
forward. >> reporter: when? >> i don't know. from my own opinion, i think in a month. >> reporter: at the village school, windows smashed, classrooms trashed, anti-russian packs on the floor. and a message scrolled before they retreated. the russian troops have left a parting message, it says russia is everywhere. it has no borders. and over here, they have crossed out the ukrainian word for march and said use the right language. where the russians appear to fight harder, frontline trenches near the village. armored vehicles and tanks taken out by artillery. you get an idea of the ferocity of the fight here from the artillery impacts and the way the trees around here are all shredded. but here is a surprise hitting these targets with u.s. gifted m
777 artillery wasn't as easy as the soldiers expected. >> m 777 shooting quite good, but not so good as we expected. >> reporter: not ungrateful he says and very willing to learn better skills. nic robertson, cnn, ukraine. >> our thanks to nic for that report. we'll take a quick back and back with more news in a moment.

welcome back. a new kind of smart glasses may soon change the way deaf people communicate. they allow users to actually read conversations kind of like watching a subtitled foreign film. cnn's michael holmes reports. >> can you see anything? >> reporter: diana martin is experiencing conversation like never before. >> this is a new way of being able to communicate. >> reporter: she is among the first to try new glasses specially equipped with a technology that helps those who can't hear to see conversation
in realtime. >> she is looking at me but realizes that she doesn't have to look at me, she can look through the glasses. >> reporter: inside the lenses of the new smart glasses, any speech is turned in to text in realtime with a live display of subtitles. now those who are deaf are offered a new way to engage and utilize other modern day technologies primarily accessible to only the hearing world. >> alexa, what is the weather forecast? >> right now it is 23 degrees celsius with mostly cloudy skies. >> reporter: the software was developed by the company xrai glass as the founder noticed his grandfather losing his hearing. >> it was like hang on, he watches itment v all the time with subtitles on, why can't we subtitle the world. >> reporter: the technology is ran through an app that
