this is also the coming to life for most hello and welcome to the program israel has reportedly warned gaza residents to stay inside over becoming a target they death toll from the moment of the region has already exceeded one hundred victims around a quarter of them children and journalists hari fear isn't gaza brings us the latest. israel's assault has continued it's now day seven of operation pillar of cloud israel has over these last few days used naval and land attacks on the gaza strip so far today those attacks have been through and means own me and least four palestinians have been killed alone today including one fifteen year old boy his name is in the north of the strip israel continue to target almost every
7:02 am
population center in the gaza strip from rafa in the south which has been heavily pound the last couple of days particularly the beit lahia area in the north of the gaza strip as well as gaza city and khan yunis the middle area of the strip in the beginning of the morning israel said that no one should leave their homes and if they leave their homes they will become a military target of the state of israel so as you can imagine by statements being issued like that by israel and over the last few days we've seen israel leafleting northern areas of the gaza strip saying we're going to start a ground invasion soon that's happened three times now that lifting exercise that the civilian population here is totally terrorized and they are unable to continue their normal life the tool the same time obviously there's been stockpiling of food and fuel and bread and things like this as a result of that there's now a real on the supply of basic things that people are relying on for their normal lives business is a totally shut down educational establishments are totally shut down and the
7:03 am
humanitarian situation in terms of health is getting greater and greater greater and. palestinian officials say they would like to see turkish and egyptian troops monitoring a possible cease find gaza this is a times to reach a stable truce between israel and hamas failed so bad fruit and with israel's threats of a ground invasion there are doubts whether it's possible at all as a policy or reports while egyptian mediators are hardly trying to put together the general terms for a cease fire the idea is that both sides if they agree to a truce in theory then the specific details can be hammered out later at a meeting late on monday night the israeli government decided to give cairo more time to try and reach a cease fire agreement and that is why throughout the day today choose day they will be mediation talks happening in cairo those talks are expected to be decisive at the same time however there are tens of thousands of israeli soldiers who are deployed throughout the make of desert they are both regular army soldiers as well
7:04 am
as reservists who've been called out so the situation on the ground certainly is tense the u.n. secretary general ban ki moon will today be meeting with the israeli prime minister netanyahu and the palestinian president mahmoud abbas he has said that any kind of israeli ground offensive merely escalate the situation most israelis by and large are in support of a ground operation in gaza having said that though they ought statements that have been coming out from the israeli army that says that at least a third of the militants in gaza is short range missiles have been destroyed and that they've managed to destroy all the range rockets now this is a sign that israelis are greeting and it will cause some israelis to question whether or not a ground in principle the fact is still needed having said that though there is still a lot of rhetoric that is coming from the israeli parliamentarians we've heard from warren who is the son of a former israeli prime minister that gaza needs to be flattened in the same way that hiroshima was we also heard from the one school minister that gaza needs to be
7:05 am
bombed so that people they feel he she may. during egypt in the sinai and then we've heard other comments that the people of gaza are not innocent that they elected the hamas leadership and all of them are guilty and therefore entitled or deserve all should be on the receiving end of the israeli fire of course alongside this there is another battle that's ongoing and as always that is the battle in cyberspace but here the israelis have an unfair advantage it's a sphere that they know well it's a sphere that they've operated in for years have a look. while israeli politicians weigh up whether or not to send their army into gaza they've had a new here's a taishan in mourning after a p.r. machine into the social media battlefield for one israeli was killed yesterday in the attack from. my house took a direct hit israeli citizens experience indescribable suffering this video offers a sophisticated alternative to the deadly reality on the ground
7:06 am
a growing civilian death toll in gaza at the hands of the i.d.f. today very is a battle a campaign online offline in the electronic media for the hearts and minds of public opinion it's very very important when the israelis killed her must lead to homage o'barry last week they didn't just kill him they instantly posted this video on you tube and then tweeted a warning to all his comrades that they could be next the ability to prolong its activity is also based on how it is being perceived internationally interesting enough of this war provides less pictures for example of the two thousand and eight million war which was taking place in gaza padlocks equally it is cynical and it sounds like one of the reasons that there are less specific casualties is because israel would like the policy this would have less pictures of the war israel explained its operation and rocket attacks in this way but using the deaths of more
7:07 am
than one hundred civilians to simplistic and slightly idiotic p.r. message israeli citizens are reporting rocket alerts on facebook and twitter long before the media and answers them it seems the more p.r. you put into promoting war the more justified it looks in the eyes of ordinary people the al qassam brigades militant group in gaza is happy to fight fire with fire posting videos like this one on you tube mourning israelis there wherever they are they will be hunted down and killed. this group of arab students from tel aviv university. are taking a break from the political science studies to discuss the politics of the media war . israel is lying to its people it is really reporters are inflaming the situation there is a huge incitement. to israel must demolish gaza even if a rocket hits the target they don't see that. these really need is really rude they said that ten people from the same family died but they see that it is legal
7:08 am
because they will be hamas members in the future where because there are rockets under the house the battle in cyberspace is well under way with a twenty four seven back and forth exchange on the likes of twitter between hamas and the israeli defense forces it seems the two sides who haven't yet met face to face on the ground have wasted no time confronting each other online policy r.t. television. and paul is keeping a close eye on this is fire let's check our twitter feed for the latest updates russia has submitted a draft resolution to the u.n. security council in an attempt to arrest the violence between israel and hamas. going off explains that russia is also accusing you of nations of trying to filibuster international efforts to resolve the conflict. russia proposed a draft resolution to the un security council it still hasn't made a decision on that we have heard from moscow's representative to the un voiced outrage that the organization couldn't agree on
7:09 am
a statement in fact with that issue going as a cue some members of the u.n. security council for dragging their feet he didn't specify which state exactly but he did hint at the uighurs we have heard from the american representative to the e.u. when it was said that washington doesn't want to spoil the negotiations truly going on between usually palestinians in cairo but frankly speaking it's difficult to understand how they could be spoiled since obviously they haven't been very effective so far meanwhile incoming border russia's foreign minister lavrov has met with u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton and. has called on both the israelis and palestinians to put their weapons down immediately and get to the negotiations deeble at the same time he outlined that moscow is in talks with both sides off this conflict and he's called on everybody else to do the same to give way for all the possible diplomatic solutions to this in cairo or at the u.n. security council which pretty much reflects the main point of the draft resolution
7:10 am
put forward by russia. was trying to send shining a reeking havoc in gaza dozens of aid groups out warning of an impending q my terror in crisis and to talk about that i'm not trying live from gaza five british human rights activists eighteen movement and eighteen welcome to the program so what are you seeing on the ground is the situation in gaza really as desperate as we're hearing. it is desperate because people of many people have been. hiding in their homes for the past seven days obviously there's been nothing happening in terms of coming in the obviously a lot of many palestinians are still dependent on refugees and this is still a huge huge issue we've just been given a warning actually that over the net. two i was going to accelerate its assault on gaza and. this is obviously you know he's really catastrophic for so many of the people here they all. when we go in the streets at the moment there's hardly
7:11 am
anybody around there's just some usually some media a few taxis. hearing the need the biggest humanitarian crisis is in the hospitals whereby they're short of so many things like that are used in one week the amount of funding jeans and searches and and some basic medical supplies in three months obviously they're really strapped the ambulance she's in the medical agencies because so many cases are coming in that we had yesterday the biggest the largest definitely more today we can talk about thirty people killed last night john the family lost two children two and four and also lost the budget that parents who were in intensive care for a little while after that we just heard this morning that. two women and. a small child killed. so the time continuing people calling out of the homes even the media and n.g.o.s have been told to stay in their homes for the next few hours
7:12 am
because because they're expecting escalating attacks on top of the crisis in the hospitals you've also got a serious crisis from people not being able to work not being able to go and get provisions being locked up in the in their houses when already the poverty was very high and in different refugee camps in gaza over eighty percent of people are dependent on age there is a five year is ready to ok this volatile goods coming in and stop the normal business happening in terms of import export and free movement of people so all these limitations now being tested and specially p.s.a.t. you're saying and we've also had reports that a zero is warning gazans to stay in door was restrained today in strikes have you heard anything similar. just just one small story that would be implying about yes well we've heard reports that israel is warning gaza's to stay indoors else risk
7:13 am
being injured in strikes have you heard anything similar. we did it was on a few news agencies we would show the soles but these are no unusual to say to tell palestinians to stay in their homes obviously how on earth are they going to go to the shops and buy goods for the housing. there is one of two shops that used to have stayed open just with bread and some basics two small provisions usually small food shops but yeah i mean look everyone is a target now we've had. over thirty children have been killed now and frankly just things like. this really feels like we're in no man's land it just feels like. there's not many homes being targeted now so many civilians have been killed and now we call and even go in the streets and the n.g.o.s are being told to stay in as well it just feels like we're sitting ducks every explosion options it's like a countdown you don't know exactly where it's going to land and of course
7:14 am
a key factor as well is that so many houses have been hit and demolished and caught up with the other buildings that was the media center with. the tower. and right next door the good old six year old girl was thrown out of the building next door we visited her and also be told she didn't intensive care with a brain hemorrhage at the moment. the extra effects of all these attacks from from people in nearby areas and this is how a lot of people have been having critical injuries that's been a real good and has been the extent of the injuries requiring a lot of different treatments not available in gaza. human rights activists thank you very much indeed for that report. and wrestling fans and the middle east conflict on and on line for you well we've got a dedicated section for live updates and comments on l.t. dot com.
7:15 am
with more news in a few minutes. texas wants to pull away from the usa in fact at least twenty states have started petitions for independence after obama won the election with well just a few voting irregularities but guess what suspicion will never happen it is a very easy thing to do to sign a petition and it is another thing entirely to leave the usa that will civil war thing that happened back then does anyone the usa honestly think that they are gov has the bow determination to actually rebel i don't think there is
7:16 am
a single george washington type among them well maybe just see fit tour a kind of but he's out of office how do what makes it seem like revolution or succession is this fun cool easy thing to do with cool slogans and texan flags flying but the reality looks a lot more like the arab spring before you put your name on the dotted line as a seed you should really understand what that means and what your in for the founding fathers sure did but that's just my opinion. i mean speak your language. programs in documentaries in
7:17 am
arabic it's all here on all t.v. reporting from the world talk sport savimbi ip interviews intriguing story are you . trying. to find out is it arabic. this is all c. welcome back afghanistan's president hamid karzai has ordered his top security officials to take full control of the prison at the bagram air base is still run by the u.s. despite an agreement to transfer power to afghan also or she is signed back and munch also has news accounts and affairs and company for us for us lucy hello there
7:18 am
so what exactly is cause i's issue with the u.s. military's continuing presence of the prison. hi there well this is really an issue of sovereignty for the government of afghanistan we have to keep in mind that the prison is an enormous very controversial detention center here in afghanistan it has more than three thousand afghan prisoners who have been held there without any sort of trial or due process with the courts fifty seven of them were actually found to be innocent under afghan law by afghan authorities and what we've heard from karzai spokesman on monday is that actually as many as one hundred new prisoners are being put in through that detention facility by the americans mainly through special forces night raids that's per month one hundred new people or a month and so you have this issue where afghan nationals on afghan soil are being held by foreign. occupying force and this is really prompting a lot of disconcerted by the government here within afghanistan what we heard from
7:19 am
one actually human rights expert is that the afghans simply want the present and the ability to determine what to do with the fate of the prisoners and this is why karzai issued a statement saying he's are just his officials to take urgent measures to ensure a full afghanization of the prison and a complete transfer of authority although it is unclear that there's going to be any immediate changes it looks like this process will still take a bit of time to pull. this apparent breach of agreement. well the americans are saying this is a matter of security they say that they. have found that the karzai government has released a number of prisoners who had ended up going back to the taliban or carrying attacks against coalition forces or u.s. troops and they also say that they have the rights under rules of war to detain so-called britta belligerence although of course when there is no due process no court system is sort of ensuring this it's hard to tell who is a belligerent and who is just a local afghan who's been swept up by this massive prison system and we have to
7:20 am
keep in mind that this comes just days after a very critical tense talks between the u.s. and afghanistan over the future of american forces presence in afghanistan after twenty one thousand where the issue of sovereignty again came up. strongly a porous opposes immunity for american troops who kill afghans on afghan soil he wants them to be tried by afghan law here in this country whereas u.s. military officials staunchly are against that and they want their military officials and essentially to be brought back to the u.s. to stand trial there and this is of course become much more controversial after the recent high profile trial of the massacre of sixteen afghan civilians by an american soldier who's now being persecuted and washington state in the united states so what this really boils down to is a lack of trust by both countries which is quite disturbing if you look at the way forward here. in this account reporting that from kabul lisa many thanks. coming out of the e.u. bombs the opposition coalition in syria displayed
7:21 am
a clear division in their runs radical islam is going to nothing to do with the group the e.u. calls the legitimate voice of the syrian people opting instead to build their own state in aleppo. it's been another bad day for the eurozone with france tripped over its treasured aaa credit rating for a second time this year and this time the downgrade came from moody's which condemns the blokes second biggest economy as stubborn and underexposed crisis strategist margaret bogan group says time is running out for euro zone giants to act the european union economically as it stands is an unsustainable organizations an unsustainable financial and economic. so with this downgrade actually i think is pushing france and germany and some of the bigger countries to do is recreate the european union i mean stop supporting some of the other economies such as greece forty goals being italy and you know kind of regroup and
7:22 am
recreate european union in order for the european union generally and france this typically to restate it so the economy and the people are going to suffer there will be thinking it became shocks to their comfort to their pocketbooks to their households there will be a combination of both economic nationalism and austerity measures and needs seen across the european union and understandably so you know most citizens aren't ok with that so i do think we will start the war protests across. and while the year taxpayers bear the brunt of the crisis the same can't be said of the bankers consumed in happier times the european central bank's new has quarters in frankfurt was intended to be a symbol of prosperity transparency and opportunity but today it's easy as in for the project has waned dragged down by delays rocketing costs and calling me in crisis out is more i think notion of reports. at a time when many europeans are unable to pay their mortgages and are kicked out of
7:23 am
their homes and spain's forced to approve a suspension of addictions after a woman killed herself in desperation the european central bank is preparing for a house warming party the european treasury symbolic new building will be the tallest on frankford skyline when it's complete but so far it seems the projects faced sky high criticism first of all for its ten digit price tag. we think the project is to shoot genetically we lost the e.c.b. to use its money more carefully changing taxpayers in trust of truth then of course . stephen meissner from germany's party of reason doesn't see any reason to spend that much money on a piece of real estate but he says he sees a reasonable explanation of why the sky's the limit for the european union's economic monopoly they never run out of money it's they just come to me and the other taxpayers they go you have to pay more you're paying more of it more or maybe
7:24 am
because it's the e.c.b. the european central bank they'll just print the money and while some may see an upside down logic here german m.p. mr scheffler explains it's more than just a piece of architecture. e.c.v. wants a palace building to demonstrate his power through a million more a million less makes no difference to make a statement about its power and credibility. but that's a notion that's taking a serious not in recent times the seventeen nation euro zone's unemployment is at a record high brussels and seized on a stereo to measures which the government cut spending and raise taxes increase in people's minds as well as euro skepticism here it is future european central bank headquarters here in germany and the building was initially supposed to be a symbol of integrity and competence efficiency and transparency of the u. main financial institution but many now gloat that the project that has already far
7:25 am
behind shadow and over budget may be sending a slightly different message online cynics have compared the banks future premises with the biblical story of the tower of babe it was meant to reach up to heaven but ended up instead abandoned left as a symbol of hubris and conceit if you look at it it's considered i guess modern architecture sort of looks like sort of like it's been flattened and squeezed to turn around and it looks like a medieval sort of collapse on itself so it's kind of maybe a fitting symbol i think it's very possible that the euro itself the currency may not even be around by the time they finish that building the construction is due for completion by twenty fourteen and it's already known that the president of the e.c.b. will have a room on the forty first floor some say he will not just see a breathtaking city parama he'll also have a bird's eye view of the turbulent ups and downs of his own troubled empire the e.u. fated eurozone. raef notion r.t.
7:26 am
germany. the recently formed coalition of syrian opposition forces which is now supported by europe has been rejected by the nations islam is groups based in aleppo they say they are both. and this in the state of their own and refused to have any link with the opposition the coalition was formed earlier this month and replacing the syrian national council which had no being criticised for its ineffectiveness the foreign ministers of the e.u. then jointly endorsed the coalition as the only legitimate voice of the syrian people that's despite claims that al qaeda and radical islamists have infiltrated rebel forces on the mohammad from the syria tribune says these countries don't know who they are dealing with so. we don't know this they don't control anything on the ground and you know the worst one of them to be the sort of preserve the whole process which does not make sense bright after our friends after the record rise the coalition has a leader of the sort of the syrian people the fucking groups and
7:27 am
their leaders. released this video saying that this provision of ninety percent of them and that they are there would be keep fighting until they reach their goal which is an influx davey's syria so i don't think that they will they will be able to grow. or we cannot talk about the rebels marching on the one flag the muslim brotherhood is an important member of the coalition and of the same time the muslim brotherhood is the lean back room and so forth are all the unity brigade that fights in the same brigade of the future if there is something of that not ever there it's really. not clear what its purpose are for the coalition that will. keyser in forthcoming in a few. gracefully dancing across the arctic tundra more than just a scenic image it is a way of life traditionally the people are. herders and though in many ways they
