a week of bloodshed on the gaza border has halted with a cease fire to an strikes which have killed five israelis and more than one hundred fifty palestinians the truce began shakily with several rockets fired into southern israel after the deal was sealed here is our correspondent in tel aviv policy. a ceasefire has been announced and agreed to by both israel and hamas this is the second time in two days that we've heard such an announcement but this time it's a new does seem as if it's accurate now the ceasefire is a surprise to everyone it comes off to a bloody day both in israel and gaza early on wednesday there was a bus bombing in tel aviv twenty eight people were injured and very much the reaction after that bus bombing was that he was not going to launch a ground offensive into gaza rather than announce a cease fire so definitely here in tel aviv people have been taken by surprise now the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu earlier held a telephone calls with the american president barack obama in that phone call he
12:02 am
said that israel was ready to give the cease fire a chance is one is of course very concerned around the plane that it needs to lift its blockade of the information we have is that while agreeing to the cease fire it has not given the nod that in fact it will lift the blockade it has had on gaza for several years now but so be the focus on everyone's mind is the cease fire and whether one multiple proved to be able to hold in the coming hours and the coming days. policy here is also updating you on the situation in the middle east via her twitter feed and a recent post she says there are protests taking place in southern israel against the cease fire deal to check the latest underscore are to. doubts over whether the truce can hold out our fueled by the underlying disputes between israel and hamas that are far from resolved or just going to war on their deeply divided relations and how previous deals have panned out. this ceasefire
12:03 am
deal doesn't even begin to address the root causes of the conflict and as long as they remain the decades long cycle of violence is almost assured to continue by now most people lost track of all the previous cease fire agreements and more generally of where it all started and it became for the most part a chicken and egg conversation you have the years long suppression of the palestinians we saw the radical forces among them by using and striking its well with is well coming back at them so hard that even most peaceful palestinian started sympathizing with radical forces without going too far back in history in two thousand and six the cigars elected hamas that promised a more affirmative response to the story of the occupation in response israel put gaza under blockade the list of import was straight trans among many many other things including things like cement wood cat all animal medicine musical lindstrom and notebooks at one point even lentils tomato paste and chocolates were on the list of items not allowed into gaza it's not easy to gauge
12:04 am
what the blockade meant for the people there and all the humiliation that went with it as well insisted that the purpose of the blockade was to pressure hamas into ending the rocket attacks the attacks did not stop they intensified in two thousand and eight is where launched a major assault on gaza operation cast lead killed more than a thousand palestinians and thirteen israelis did not solve the problem again it got worse and american officials keep repeating the mantra israel has no right to defend itself it sure does but the tragedy is that the palestinians to think they're defending themselves. israel's deputy foreign minister says most of those killed and injured in the bombardment of gaza quote deserved it because he claims they were armed terrorists palestinian health officials and human rights activists however insist more than two thirds of those who died were civilians with almost half of them children israel though says the ratio is lower r.t.
12:05 am
talked to one of the country's m.p.'s assess her government conducted the assault in a very measured way. israel is putting so much effort to ensure that civilians are not hurt. i'm sorry but look at what we're spending on our money we're spending our money on defending our civilians making sure they're safe and making sure that we can we do not hurt civilians when we go to war what this hamas spend their money on they are hiding behind television crews they are hiding behind journalists and israel is doing something on paralleled in the history of warfare it makes for the people who are not involved are not killed and israel is really been commended by all countries not just for having the right to defend its citizens but also for the fact that it is couldn't ducting itself in a way that is very proportional and very measured. journalism and i worked as
12:06 am
don de bar says a cease fire might save the palestinians from bombs but not from the consequences of the years long israeli blockade. their condition degraded from being starving to being starving and bombed and now the bombing apparently will stop and so that is a reason to celebrate as meager as it might seem in the face of starvation again the the precondition to dealing with that is to give the people if not justice at least you know enough to survive and have a decent life right now it's a million and a half people in open an open air prison camp without food without medicine without the material means of survival except for those crumbs that are allowed to pass through the hands of israelis and until that changes israel will not see peace one place where the past week of deadly intensity has been fought as online nice here have ski takes a look at the conflicts twitter tactics the latest military conflict in the gaza strip may go down in history as the first war ever declared on twitter the official
12:07 am
account of the israeli defense force announced the start of the pillar of defense operation and one of those literally told the enemy to run and hide but later hamas had their say using similar war rhetoric. this exchange has been retreated thousands of times since and numbers do matter on twitter through hits likes replies and retreats and more people than ever before turn to social media and the question is who is winning this online warfare and numbers speak for themselves according to the hashtags dot org website the guards are under attack crash tag is ten times more popular than israel under fire for gaza is twenty times more popular than pray for israel and gaza hash tag is almost twice as popular as israel in a nutshell this is the battle between a heavily funded state propaganda machine and citizen journalism from the outside looking israel's content is better produced more powerful shiny and glossy take

these banners for instance which were posted on idea of official facebook page how mars has also been manning the information war trenches some say clumsily as these tweets may suggest but the effect of social media boom on young palestinian activists in changing public perception of the palestinian israeli conflict has been huge younger as the residents regularly rush to hospitals and take and upload photos and videos of tragedy and inhumanity and some of the pictures have become symbolic of israel's disproportionate use of force the graphic and vocal message in those tweets is perhaps the reason why palestinian citizen journalism is proving more effective and why israeli social networkers simply cannot compete with the content coming out of gaza where this first war started on twitter can become the first war lost on twitter is a question but one conclusion seems evident enough israel has not grasped the destructive power of social media s tightly as it's holding the people of gaza in

on the western coast of india a tourist hot spot for people around the world really enjoy it we just arrived here couple of days ago so we really enjoy tourism drives the economy here and go up but it comes at a price a new study found that tourists actually use eight times as much water the local during peak season sometimes only get access to running water for two hours every other day goings used to depend on wells in their neighborhoods for water but the population in the small state triples during the peak tourist season and with no proper sewage systems in place many wells have become contaminated forcing locals to rely on the erratic public supply. for emergency. room have. sinned that plastic bangs and on and we have to keep otherwise there's no war. but while the locals access to water is draining.
12:25 am
just down the road water flows freely in the resorts or tourists enjoy fountains fish ponds and splashing in the pools that's because hoteliers can afford to dominate the limited supply even if they do so illegally most five star hotels get water from tankers and most tankers operate without a license they take water from local wells in neighborhoods where extraction is banned by law what music was so i know you. know what i. feel and so the restaurant owner foods he has to buy from the bank. no doubt but he's forced to buy the average tourist enjoying go as water feature is here for less than a week willing to pay up for short term fun but most are unaware of the frail future in this coastal community in my perspective i'm going to stay here only for . the. i would be most of

a concern and for those born and raised here the disparity is infuriating half the population relies on tourists for their livelihood although it's one that leaves them without access to a basic human right i wasn't giving me because i will i mean you've lived till you've you've grown up in this area so you know you kind of silly is this fair i mean is this just in the system to be assistance to misplacing to the so we all of us come. to the question in this who actually benefits them to what isn't that cool school list but with no limit on how much water can be bought hotels will remain the highest bidder leaving the locals hanging out to dry preassure either r t go india and coming up in just a few minutes we take a closer look at the difficulties women continue to face in their war torn country .
