3:03 am
a cease fire that was called for which israel and major broke and this is despite the fact that the israeli army denies this however we have heard there were at least some two people who were killed in gaza there are some seventy five thousand reservists who have been called out these troops are now amassing along the israel gaza border and speaking to his way he's here inside as well as outside the country you have israelis who are returning as they are called up for duty very much. that we are going to look at an offensive that will happen remarkably soon yesterday we saw the first missiles since nine hundred seventy targeted and then just before that there was at least two missiles that live not far from tel aviv so certainly the sense here is that these hamas militants now have long range missiles and this is an opportunity at least israelis believe for them to deal the situation in gaza once and for all they do believe that the prime minister here will call for a ground offensive you also need to remember that we're not that far away from

elections for the parliament natanya who has always been a prime minister you know win support by showing a very strong so strong so he the mood here is that this is an opportunity for him to drum up support ahead of such crucial elections. at least twenty nine palestinians were civilians women and children among them have been killed since israel launched its assault on gaza on wednesday he is staying in contact with activists and documentary filmmaker. who's currently working in gaza and he says much of gaza's population is very young and that most people there are heavily reliant on the support of aid agencies. i've been to several sites to stream struck by israeli strikes and frankly being out and about in the gaza strip is the most dangerous thing to do this is our real us according to god's bridge most of the gazan population are under the age of eighteen seventy five percent youth unemployment sixty percent unemployment massive modern and most people in gaza
3:05 am
refugee status most people over sixty. eight agencies are. just i do not started that so that is what the situation is like a normal day to day in these days during the war in gaza is big with drones with f. sixteen s with helicopters with nato. and so you can just imagine it's not going any better out of syria resistance groups of the ordered by the majority of gazans for the strong resistance in our battling israeli forces and so it's not looking at the malls in the palestinian narrative point of view that i actually got sense of hope that that forces her to what seemed to be very likely an imminent ground by its very defense forces and despite a number of civilian deaths in gaza israel has hailed its payload defense operation at such a trickle and claims it only targets military sites my colleague what we saw has been talking to alex l skit spokesperson for the israeli prime minister's office. i
3:06 am
want to see that we have only one goal israel has to defend its citizens i'm sure that there is no state no state no russia and no state in europe and no united states of america can agree with this kind of situation you know our children our elders are fired by rockets on our schools on our civilians and on the terrorists with one very simple goal to stop this firing of rockets on our civilians and we will target terrorists until they stop would you care to explain why the palestinian interior ministry has also been targeted in fact that building is basically left in a state of rubble and ruin that's hardly a militant stronghold in fact the the interior ministry is where people get passports visas it's where journalists get their permission to go into the strip why go after why level the interior ministry the explanation is very simple
3:07 am
unfortunately must. while they target our civilians they hide behind their civilians they hide behind schools now the i.d.f. our army wants only to defend our citizens targets only terrorists garson is an extremely confined area a very small area probably certainly overpopulated why are so many children being killed by israeli airstrikes if you're going after militants there are no children been heard by idea if only terrorists only terrorists are targeted while the visit of egyptian of the prime minister of egypt israel didn't try and didn't attack any target in gaz but a master is the target israeli civilians while the visit of the prime minister of egypt and i suggest you check the information because there it cannot be. well the

catalonia wants to get its independence from the rest of spain locals feel that madrid texas of catalonia economic success is a way putting the region into debt trust me we're going are going to have it all taxed away is very aggravating i can see why people are frustrated but the people who want independence have a very odd slogan catalonia a new european state so let me get this straight you want independence but you want to stay in the e.u. is that what you mean what exactly would that change that's not really gaining independence that shifting dependencies stay in the e.u. means you won't have control of your borders you'll still be on the euro see all of your own currency you will be able to establish your trade standards those will be dictated to you by brussels and if you don't like the austerity measures from outsiders like in madrid then you might want have a conversation with the greeks because being an independent country in the e.u.

here watching r t live from moscow the syrian rebels are gaining momentum as their national coalition towards western nations lobbying for support the u.k. is mulling officially recognizing the opposition movement and sending military aid to the airlines after a meeting in london britain wants to see a clear plan of political transition from the airlines before becoming next in line to officially recognize the new group the coalition will now hold talks with french president francois hollande on saturday after paris said it will also consider sending weapons to the rebels middle east commentator and blogger col shara believes however that the opposition movement is in disarray with no united voice to speak for the syrian people. in syria of course the process has been much slower
3:15 am
the wave of defection that we saw in libya didn't exactly happen in syria and what's happening now in specifically in syria is that people there are going off to presenting a syrian uprising are not the people who are on the ground so we started hearing for example support from different rebel groups armed may rebel groups for the new opposition leadership but who knows the extent of or whether they would be able to exercise political control so what you really have to look at that there is a strong divide between leadership that is outside the country and doesn't have control on the ground and forces on the ground pretty much doing whatever they want after all we've ended with is to separate opposition bodies because the syrian national council still exists alongside the national coalition then you and i should correlation so it's a recipe for more division and kind of lack of a coherence to it for moving the country forward. for you this hour

3:17 am
estimated that for northern rock for type state is set to these around two hundred billion but that's not the worst of it because all b.s. and lloyds bank oh also had a lot of typos money funded into these bailouts and the taxpayers could be set to lease a staggering sixty six billion pounds on that is very very hard to wrap your head around those figures so we're going to try and compare it really the amount that was put into those bailouts to what we have in the moment spending on social welfare such as pensions education health care and defense these figures coming at a time when everyone here is struggling in a daily we're talking to people who are really struggling to survive in the country in the midst of this very very tough economic times and you kind of got this it was a good report very hard hitting report telling us that there was a monumental collective failure that the treasury was unable to hold the respond

3:19 am
to pound basically allow politicians to gamble other people's money and lo and behold those politicians have got very good results as is always the case when politicians are spending other people's money it's incredible how often those in power manage to get every major crisis wrong and i think we're seeing the moment in a rejection of the way that our politics at westminster is out of touch the point here is that with the writing was on the wall whether any lessons will actually be learned of course remains to be seen but taxpayers they think they absolutely whopping losses at the moment at least a lot of people saying you know we saved the banks he's going to save us. and let's now take a look at some other stories this hour around true held after a train crashed with a school bus just south of the egyptian capital they exact number of fatalities isn't yet to clear a local doctor said that many of the victims were of kindergarten age between six because of the accident is being investigated there are some reports that the railroad crossing wasn't closed when it should have been. played out and stuff was
