i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program palestinian leaders in gaza have agreed to a cease fire with israel ending two days of violence that threatened to turn into all out war israel has not officially commented on that cease fire but its military has allowed schools and roads in southern israel to reopen so that residents can return to their daily lives in the hours since the agreement was reached it appears to be holding with no rockets fires or israeli strikes reported the escalation in violence began on saturday with rocket fire from militants in gaza prompting return strikes by israel at least twenty three palestinians and four israel were killed. let's bring in correspondent tonya kramer who has the latest from jerusalem so tanya we've heard that this cease fire has been in effect for a few hours now how is it holding up so far. well it appears to be holding since the early morning hours there have been no a rockets being
fired into southern israel from gaza and also there have been no more israeli airstrikes on gaza a palestinian media have reported that as of four thirty am this cease fire has gone into effect a cease fire that has been brokered this time again in mediated by egypt with the help of qatar and the united nations. and tania we know that one of the main sticking points one of the things that really sparked this most recent conflict was on the palestinian officials in gaza were saying that israel was not taking steps to ease its blockade under promise ceasefire deals of the past how likely is it that now we will see some steps to resolve this. well it's all about the implementation as you said hamas and islamic jihad another militant group in gaza they have accused israel of failing to implement understandings that
have been reached during the last time there was an escalation and was in late march and also at earlier times we've seen many of those escalations flaring up over the past year and we understand that this time also. the ceasefire or calm is based on those understandings that have included previously the lifting of some of the restrictions on gaza like expanding the fishing zone. getting in aid money from qatar the flow of more electricity into gaza now it's really all about this implementation but it also shows that without a longer term plan no solution political solution for the gaza strip which has been under blockade and has been under closure for over ten years now it's going to be highly likely that we see possibly other times of escalation trying to give in the tenuous situation there right now what is the mood.
well i think people on both sides are waiting to see actually two to know bit more about the understandings being reached i think in gaza there's a sense of relief it's also the first day of ramadan today has been very exhausting . weekend there and people really would like to see that some of those restrictions being lifted now in the south of israel as well and so many barrages of rockets have been. launched against communities their people have been confined mainly to their house or to the safe rooms but they also would probably like to see what is the result of all of this is just a period of calm and waiting for another escalation or will there be some solution at the end tanya kramer in jerusalem thank you tanya. now at least forty one people have been killed after
a russian plane burst into flames during an emergency landing at moscow's sheremetyevo airport the aeroflot airliner was flying to the northern city of more months when the pilot reported technical problems and turned back. panic breaks out onboard aeroflot flight s u one four nine two this video shot by one of the passengers captures the fateful moments after the plane's emergency landing at moscow's sheremetyevo airport. most of the seventy eight passengers did manage to escape the flames as the lucky survivors staggered to safety rescue vehicles rushed towards the burning hole. several passengers were taken to hospital. this is the one that was come up with. verity of the injuries come from smoke inhalation and. many other people have
injuries to the bodies. and legs. it's unclear why the russian build sukhoi superjet one hundred turned back about thirty minutes into its flight the fire didn't break out until the plane touched the ground the aircraft bounced off the tarmac as the pilot attempted to land causing the fuel tanks to burst and ignite the disaster also raises questions over the super jet one hundred since one crashed in indonesia in two thousand and twelve there have been several complaints about technical flaws in the aircraft scrambling for answers aeroflot has activated its crisis response team and russian president vladimir putin has ordered a full investigation into the disaster. for more let's bring in our correspondent emily share when who is on the story for us in moscow so emily what more are we hearing from investigators about the cause of this accident. well the investigative committee here in russia has now and named the main possible reasons
that could have caused this accident they say that it could have been caused by an inexperienced pilot by an inexperienced person in the control room or by an experienced technician who checked the plane before they also mentioned as a possible reason a defect on the plane or an unfavorable weather conditions potentially we've been hearing as well that the plane may have been hit by lightning and that could have caused a technical default the investigative committee said that they have looked into several sources of information including several black boxes and audio recordings from on board as well as c.c.t.v. footage so we're sure to be hearing more as the day goes on and there seems to be some debate about the emergency response. well there has been some debate about the emergency response on social media in particular.
and some eyewitnesses were saying that fire brigades didn't arrive on the scene quickly enough that they didn't put out the fire quickly enough the minister of transport has just spoken to me to airport and he said that actually the first fire brigade was on the scene putting out the fire within one minute of the emergency landing and then just a few minutes later several more fire brigades arrived and also there has been some debate when it comes to the evacuation of the passengers an aeroflot representative said that the passengers were evacuated within fifty five seconds well under the norm for such evacuations but there have been some media reports as well that actually some passengers were trying to get their hand luggage out of the plane they were panicking and that that meant that evacuations of the other passengers at the back of the plane was slower now emily you mentioned you know the the host of reasons that investigators and authorities have so far outlined as the possible
causes but it's not the first time but this particular super. model of it has had technical problems is it. no absolutely the sukhoi superjet one hundred according to russian media reports there are actually been eight incidents or accidents within the last year that's according to reports and this is a very common plane of particularly for regional flights here in russia and it was actually the pride of russian aviation when it was first launched in two thousand and eleven it was the first civil airplane that was launched after the soviet union a russian airplane the hope was that russia could compete on the international aviation market we'll have to wait and see of course whether this plane is really the cause for the accident but it's clear that this will be certainly bad for the refuse it reputation of the superjet the savoy superjet one hundred i'm really sure when in moscow thank you. let's get
