with the latest news on the week's top stories to children have been killed and over twelve people injured by a massive attack on gaza on sunday as israel steps up its military assault with increased shelling from sea and air at bring circle east to forty eight a number of palestinians have been killed in the bombardment launched by israel on wednesday three israelis have died at the hands of hamas rockets over the same period. brings us the latest on the developing conflict israeli army. point that all accounts are targeted killings but what we witnessed in the early hours of sunday morning is the israeli in force one in a media building in gaza city and according to palestinian sources and least sixty journalists have been injured in this and they destroyed also know that they were overnight strikes in northern gaza least two children were killed and some fifteen people injured so what we're witnessing is this increase in. this is an encounter
despite the fact as i say the israeli army saying that it does only carry out very specific targets the i.d.f. has also confirmed that its navy is now attacking from the sea plus you have these air strikes as well as drones now on saturday that was an emergency meeting of the arab league in cairo and during that meeting the arab league chief i would be accused israel of carrying out war crimes he also said that all arab states and you should reconsider the peace treaties with israel we know that the arab league is going to be sending a delegation to gaza this morning sunday that will be headed by the arab league chief and have a number of foreign ministers in it and they will be trying to assess the humanitarian situation on the ground and deal with what they say is an increasing crisis now egypt has been playing and mediate we have heard from the egyptian president mohamed morsi that he things a ceasefire will be reached soon and that's as good an old stuff on and it's on israel if the jewish state in the blockade that it's had in place on gaza as well
as stops these assassinations and these stipulations were made during a meeting between a masterly gets and egypt's inefficiency in cairo and also heard of another peace proposal put forward by to keep in which it says it to egypt the united states and russia should be involved in brokering teigne peace plans if it needs to be said that it's not very clear that either side really is ready for a cease fire so to say that they are ready but only if the other stops and we've really seen an attempt at sea side when the egyptian prime minister visited gaza recently and during his visit that so-called cease fire was broken both sides. breaking its suit so it doesn't seem at this stage that any kind of c.s.i. is on the plans israel has been moving its tanks as well as armored personnel vehicles up and down the israeli gaza border for several days now and this does raise the whole question of whether or not he was going to be an imminent ground operation we did see some seventy five thousand israeli was.
at the same time we. really should be eating with foreign diplomats in the morning and that they will be extending the ground operation or they didn't actually see a ground operation his ability they were operational at the assumption by and large talking to israelis at least here in tel aviv and also in the country is that it's going to parisian is going to happen so it's a few it's been experienced by the palestinian side so i think what we will see in the coming hours if not the coming hours the coming days is a possible ground invasion so you can all the signs you seem to point to. and for a constant update on the situation inside gaza we're staying in contact with activists and filmmaker harry fear who's currently working there and he says it's innocent civilians who suffer from the from the israeli onslaught said to be aimed only at a military targets israel boasts that it has capabilities so advanced that it can target with pinpoints what we're seeing is dead children and pregnant women israel
has its mission it has its objective it's got the people that it wants to kill but the thing is it doesn't care about collateral damage it has the same policy if you like the united states with regard to collateral damage that it's happy to injure dozens of palestinian men women and children as long as it can kill one person who might have helped fire a rocket into israel that is the psychology of all around the gaza strip are at some level terrorized by this state terrorism this is a largely defenseless third world population most of the population under the age of eighteen most of the population are reliant on food aid and they're being bombed with drones and f. sixteen by. and by sea over these last few days. and my colleague bill dahl has talked to israeli defense ministry spokesman josh hamilton who gave no clear explanation as to why cid then being killed in what he called
highly precise bombings but when hamas are hiding rockets beneath mosques and hiding rockets and missiles within schoolyards and firing rockets actually next to the very hotel where most of the foreign correspondents are staying you just have to look at all the reports coming out across the world today unfortunately it's a very very difficult predicament and that's why the israeli government uses the most precise munitions is why the israeli army since flies out to the population even before we conduct these precision strikes a lot of minimize civilian damage out what those precise munitions are doing to the people of gaza we managed to speak to several girls and says civilians who are suffering in this bombing campaign in a moment here's what they had to say let's have a listen. by then the civilian population here is then sleep in every house there are about twenty people until quarter to six everyone was asleep after daniel last began shaking this entire area about sixteen killings were bombing innocent
harmless people many were injured my family had four injured and we were listening to the news to find out what's going on in gaza. yesterday we slipped through because we wanted to risk what we walk up and rubbed in their brothers. thank god all they were alive but what should we do now the roof collapsed walls are just roared the children of you under the rubble ever do. we were all sleeping our parents and me with my sisters in a sixteen missile hits our house we were taken to hospital thank god or live but that's how it was going on so what do you say to these people in gaza. well first of all i'd like to point out that actually last night and every night but in particular last night even in the middle of a mission we had air force jets that were flying over and they had a precise target ready to be hit and the hamas organization or other organizations in the region bought civilians to the location and we diverted the attack we are
doing our utmost to protect civilians on both sides while hamas is going out of its way to not only put their own civilians in harm but attack our civilians on a day to day basis. and you can keep an eye on what's happening in gaza now websites. a timeline featuring constant updates on the latest plus a live transmission from gaza. and also at that right now how can group anonymous launches an attack on almost seven hundred israeli websites in retaliation to the ongoing forming of this trip more to. the u.s. continues to return rate its support for blaming hamas for starting the conflict president obama and israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu both claim to want a deescalation of the conflict but only provided there's a hold in rocket fire from gaza retired u.s. army colonel wright says washington will stand by israel no matter what. and we
have had a history in the united states governments. of unconditional support for the state of israel no matter what criminal acts it commits and so far the obama administration has been no different than any other administration i would ask what is israel trying to achieve here you have a population that's in a prison that has been under blockade for the last five years the israeli government is squeezing the people of gaza the united nations now says that by the year twenty twenty gaza will be unlivable the israeli attack on gaza it's not a war it's an attack there is really no defenses that the palestinians have they do have these rockets that they do fire and fortunately most of them don't hit any targets at all of the israeli government officials are saying that gaza needs to be reformatted as if it were if they've as if they were computer characters not human beings and we'll keep you updated on the developing situation in gaza and
israel to stay chant. as the battle rages on in gaza israel has been fighting on another front i.d.f. shells fell in neighboring syria in response to gunfire that hit an army of vehicle and they disputed golan heights the area has seen artillery fire from both sides in recent weeks and syria claims its shells caused no injuries meanwhile syrian opposition forces looking to oust president assad claim they've captured a military airport near the iraqi border their lives is gaining more western support installed evelyn friends parents around the u.k. will discuss lifting the e.u. arms embargo on monday so they can supply weapons to the rebels in this neil clark says the western nations like using believe their blueprint to gain a foothold in syria for the long term goal of war against iran. what we do is we
get together some opposition puppets if you like. together call them the government of libya and syria and then we work to end the arms embargoes and very soon we'll be hearing talk i expect no fly zones this is all part of a plan to topple assad actually with western powers actually glaring it's ok for us to are the rebels in syria but to anybody else to arm the syrians it's not allowed so it's absolutely appalling the a policy we have the constitutional boat back in. the series voted for it we had elections in may you know there is a every possibility of a chart of change in syria through the ballot box but the west don't want that because they know the president's job is to popular party probably majority support in syria the last one is the people's will in syria to prevail they want to impose by force a puppet government and you know what would happen and leave iraq to. a stylish
topple we have in syria more chaotic you have more death and destruction but the west doesn't really care about that he doesn't care what's happening in libya at the moment all he cares about is a new government in damascus which will probably tie the entire economy the links with iran and hezbollah are. that you know that the move against iraq to take place because it is all about paving the way for war gets there are. dramatic falls from grace and grace is candles all three have becoming an alarming trend in washington be more to the last case than just partial as one for my intelligence officer tells us a shocking and comforting schools right. catalonia wants to get its independence from the rest of spain locals feel that madrid texas all of catalonia economic success is
a way putting the region into debt trust me we're only 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 so you won't have 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. won't save you from people messing with your finances all i'm saying is that being truly independent means answer to no one not madrid not brussels but that's just my opinion.
live from moscow it's good to have you with us millions across some twenty european countries have vented their anger this week and the first coordinated cross border push has some strikes as the financial crisis took hold people are frustrated with a slew of spending cuts as the eurozone sinks into its second recession since two thousand and eight events descendant of honest a nation there were police fired tear gas at workers are students who are throwing bottles and stones transport and portugal came to a standstill as striking workers walks out of their jobs and even hospitals were only providing a minimal service in the heart of europe and brussels crowds gathered outside a you have quarters to demand an end to austerity but the massive actually started in spain which saw clashes and dozens are arrests also south went to metry to witness to the scum times. staying i agree.
it's silly. and poor. debt ridden countries joining together with many others for the continent's first cross border mega strike from the beginning it was clear that emotions were running high in many places madrid saw violence early on and after a brief. break. to testing. for various things put up between the protesters and the riot police is right almost three the madrid tonight really got more symbolic candy for the he's the by the people say there are right now all across there are the three legged government between the people themselves who have the austerity but those. are the bullets in violent confrontations with the authorities becoming an all too familiar sight the confidence leaders stand firm the disparity is a necessary evil cut the sky high deficit only the fourteenth the people of europe
seem to have formed a county union to fight back against the prevailing tide was there it's the ahead of next week's budget meetings brussels will be watching closely as the scenes of police and protesters battling one another laid out of course the peace prize winning. i think it's. called the secrets of cyber security in the u.s. find out here's a look at a time because the white house to make moves allowing the military deployment of the home to protect against. it also on line a mystery of history or just a bizarre mistake treated high school students sitting their final exams get a bit of a shock trying to robot appears in a picture depicting the russian revolution brought about how this happened at all. a new generation of chinese leaders has taken over power in the country as the government's undergone its once in
a decade political transformation the question on everybody's lips now is how this change will affect china's relations with its main rival the u.s. financial expert france's loon who is based in hong kong believes that america will no longer get everything its own way as china strengthens militarily. new leadership showed china a very new stability and continuity above everything else so. what this means to continue to grow economically very much china we would do is to continue to spring for its military restraint to richard poland china can achieve parity with america and if that is the case i don't think america can for all its weight around the world. out of poland like what it is now you can't you can do anything it wants but if china becomes.
a military power on a parity with the u.s. then things will change the u.s. campaign in afghanistan suffered a fresh military great blow this week the career of the current commander in afghanistan is now in jeopardy out he became involved in the case that led to the resignation of the former commander and cia chief david petraeus to resign on his biographer paula broadwell admitted to having a relationship with him and classified information was found on her computer the transom diet denies passing on any secrets now general allen succeeded betrayer said afghanistan is under investigation of an inappropriate communication with a woman who has ties to both the trust and the broadwell and the feeling is growing that there's much more to the case than. the afghan war like the entire experience of the last ten years is really an artificial construct these generals have cultivated an image of themselves that is inaccurate they've tried to create
the illusion that we are fighting a great enemy in reality we don't face armies air forces or air defenses we're died fighting the volatile as a city or it in this this is not strictly speaking a real war in that sense of the people that. are exposed to fire fire perhaps less than fifteen percent of our soldiers and marines are the only ones who are ever in danger not the generals not the senior officers who are never exposed these are people that frankly think they are immune from accountability and i'm not sure that the sexual dimensions though interesting or are at the root of the problem i think there is concern about national security and i think we'll discover over the next couple of weeks that to trace his departure has much more to do with that than an affair the f.b.i. doesn't normally investigate extramarital affairs unless a foreign agent is involved. a russian premier league football match between two of
the country's top teams was abandoned in the first toff after flags find from the stands badly injured one of the play as they stand between bitter rivals anonymous and reigning champions. so the most guys goalkeeper hey it wasn't far shouting obscenities at the plans he was treated. and john sherman who is the goalkeeper for dino moscow has been injured doctors have looked at him and they say that he has been blinded by this incident in france can see in that one i took you back through this matches between st petersburg and moscow demolished took place in the humidity area which is in the moscow region fans from st petersburg started putting the pitch with fireworks and flares one of those flares or fireworks went off in the face of the goalkeeper he went down on the pitch in pain and then after he was down on the grass and they had stopped the game it is reported that the fans continued to pelt objects at the goalkeeper at that time so
the decision was made by the officials and the referees who stopped that game it's unclear whether or not that game will be continued at a later date or if it will be given a technical defeat if you will now tensions between st petersburg fans in moscow fans have gone on since around two thousand and eight they've been at a high level at that time there was a downer that was placed at a game in st petersburg that was questionable got fans upset and more recently in september between a game between a torpedo and there was a similar incident with fireworks being thrown onto the field but much worse at that time and in the same month friends then attacked their own headquarters saying that if the team doesn't play better they will start destroying property as well so there's a big problem basically between a football fans and the teams that they supposedly support but their actions at this point in time. more big more disruptive to the game than being helpful. as of
now there are no laws in russia that are designed to protect football teams or to punish fans right now that is being talked about as a possibility in the near future. and after the break we'll take a look at how also creativity can be used as ammunition in the battle for peace and justice. i never thought i could earn a living this way. natale a show of ours and she tests small arms so those photos to machine building plant lot are the source count of all the weapons she's fired over the past twelve years . i got so used to it sometimes my friends ask me to join them at the rifle range and i say no way i'm so tired of shooting. the planet's history goes from making
firearms during world war two to ballistic missiles from your class submarines during the cold war the bulk of the soviet industry was moved here in the 1940's to flee the advancing germans south here also became the heart of soviet military production closed off to foreigners for half a century it thrived on the massive moods of the soviet military when the u.s.s.r. collapsed but life here was shaken to the core but some adapted to better than others. this is the year old truck factory bush's number one truck made our president look at how well the workplace is organized everything's done to make sure the workers don't waste time waiting there was so production is booming the factory has largely managed to get on to civil rails these giants are sold around the globe have is a brand new big. you know why it's been so busy leverage to clients seventy trucks
like this once roll up the plants conveyor belt every day slogan about this things that i absolutely huge. well i'm no formula one pilot but hopefully if i can get up that. i can go for a test drive. whoa that was fun to get one of these to travel to once every morning was with a cost of about forty thousand dollars i should start saving money.
here's one of the largest rivers in the world the plan is to dam all the major tributaries of the amazon river. there will be immense pressure not only on ecological reserves but also on the communities and the territories that are used sustainably by indigenous people. meanwhile agribusiness is encroaching illegal logging is taking place and so the single basin is now at a crossroads and this is there's a resistance against this dam project that has gone on for twenty years. only i get it here to defend all waters as it on demand so right. if i'm a sheep and these energy will power and the big.
