11:02 am
victims. well the sound is not so clear i cannot hear the question will bring us a previous up to date with what you know about what's happened here today this tit for tat the sap and. attacks by the israeli army on the gaza strip for the boss a few are ones have began after the killing of an israeli soldier and in fact for the boss a few days there have been some the clashes between palestinian militants there israeli army and the israeli army wanted to. wanted to improve the buffer zone between gaza and israel and they were shooting at policy and farmers and civilians for the boss a few days to the palestinian militants should an israeli soldier out when he was did clear on the israeli warplanes that take the gaza strip they have been the sun is in the gaza strip is so most of them are civilians and up to now
11:03 am
a situation somehow is being calm but for the bost two hours of why the scale attacks on the gaza strip was by the israeli warplanes what israel says it was target situation so if you still i mean israel says it was targeting a military training camp it brings into question why a little girl a civilian was in a military training camp if that was the case now. no this is not the case there is a tax where targeting policy to see billions. cams both for the same time but i say we toss it all it was deliberate. what we call i can't see if they missed the target it was on deliberate purpose so i think there's wrong the army in the military forces i know the gaza strip very world understand a situation in which some houses can be close to a military counterpart the same time there is rain of war play and sometimes the. palestinian civilians and this will have been for the last five days and one for
11:04 am
policy and civilians were injured for the boss for these two and what happened to the by palestinian militants shooting in israeli soldier this team after after five days of a clashes on the portable with the gaza strip so we expect in the next a few hours to be more and more israeli attacks on some military camps on the gaza strip and we waiting to see what's going to happen what's going to be complete we have fear. in a wider scale to begin with which you can please. of the israeli defense force the i.d.f. says that a tanks and infantry involved now is this likely to blow up do you think is there any danger go blow up to the scale of what we witnessed back in twenty twelve of two thousand and eight. i don't think the situation is the same like in two thousand and eight the situation is different i don't think there is tension to have a white. on the gaza strip a list of the we have kind of the consequences would be bad on the two sides in
11:05 am
this situation i think the israeli military forces might have. i diss mormons i think the israeli army have. some military camps in the land and homes but the military factions have been silent up to this moment decision has not been made yet by the palestinian militant factions to respond or mum i think the gaza strip and the situation has been harsh humanitarian situation has been difficult and any israeli attack on the gaza strip will be difficult for the people and will be more serious than we can expect this is why boston and military will not. respond. this is why the they want to do you want to keep the situation as calm as possible but i still after this moment we don't know what's going to happen in the next few hours
11:06 am
ok well thanks for bringing us up to speed give us your thoughts the doctor honey palestinian political activist on the line from gaza there and just to remind our viewers as well well with our middle east correspondent paula slee a little bit later on in the program as well hopefully within this hour of news as well to get an update from. western countries are gradually changing their approach to the syrian conflict realizing the threat posed by islamist rebels there that's the view of russia's foreign minister who spoke exclusively to us about this she has made results in foreign politics to go piskun office among those who interviewed sort of a lover of. we spoke for an hour and there are lots of things to talk about since it was quite an eventful year which did bring russia several diplomatic victories like for instance the syrian chemical arms deal and currently with the international community now working on the peace conference according to the foreign minister one of the key obstacles in that sense remain preconditions being voiced by the syrian opposition including calls for president assad to step down at
11:07 am
the same time mr lavrov said the stance of the west in that sense has been shifting because the western countries are now becoming more realistic in their approach to settling the syrian conflict regardless of what their official spokesman say the number one problem is the threat of terrorism in syria the threat of jihadists coming to power in sitting at the kelly feet and trampling on human rights and maybe even exterminating minorities in syria and the realization is doing that region change is not the way to resolve these problems our western partners are becoming increasingly clear about this is about russia's relations with the west we're also talked about the minister said there is an apparent a will by both sides to create a more transparent and trustworthy relationship but some countries still shoulder scoles war era mentality and a desire to draw more dividing lines in europe. some leading members had to be against russia which is really said this leads to some of our european partners
11:08 am
still wanting to keep dividing lines within us and even move these lines eastward the developments on our big continent of europe asia through the time they believe the country will be with them or against them such an approach is completely inefficient nowadays for mass also talked about how sometimes moscow doesn't understand they also actions for instantly its recent military drills on wall nearer to russia's western borders and some states some members of the alliance after that openly said that it was these were drills aimed to work out. protection from a threat coming from the east the only country so close in the east basically is russia ends a wall president putin has been raising this question recently about u.s. plans to build an anti missile defense system in europe since washington has been saying that one of the cue threats that it's a porsche protector on is this theoretical possible threat from iran but with progress being made with the iranian nuclear program what is the point of building
11:09 am
that sure they're now you know pushkin author just trying to ignore it's our lives our exclusive interview with the russian foreign minister eight hundred thirty g.m.t. here on out international plus is available for my web site as well r.t. dot com. egyptian city of mansehra has been rocked by a bombing attack that targeted the police h.q. in the city fourteen people have been killed more than one hundred injured there last devastated a large portion of the building the government put the blame on the muslim brotherhood with a spokesman calling it a terrorist organization reporting for us from cairo is tom dale. around one am a series of at least two explosions went off inside and just next to the security director building in one story we know that at least two senior security officers are among the dead according to state t.v. and this is the deadliest the most dangerous in a series of attacks a series of bombings which are huge it seems that i heard and i'm with you nancy.
11:10 am
and the group which has been behind most of these bombings just plain i am stopping this through the partisans jerusalem. and while they haven't yet claimed responsibility for this attack they did issue a statement two days ago where they specifically warned inquiries of the security services that they would be targets and that they weren't safe. so this is a more dangerous attack one which apparently managed to penetrate. the inside of a security building destroying as you can see from your pictures part of the top three floors and one which poses a real question about egypt's transition post the ouster of president mohamed morsi the first official reaction was from a spokesman for the cabinet office who appeared to blame the muslim brotherhood and who said that they had been designated as a terrorist organization however shortly afterward the prime minister hasn't we emerged to say that the the muslim brotherhood had not being so designated that
11:11 am
they aren't officially considered to be a terrorist organization and it should be said that it's very common for quite casual connections to be drawn between the brotherhood and terrorist activity for their own part of course the brotherhood denied any involvement and condemned the attack. egypt remains in the military coup that led to the overthrow of president morsi in july this year the new interim government massive crackdown on his party the muslim brotherhood still maintains wide support in egypt let's find out more about this we're joined live from car by blogger and journalist what is going the other while thanks me with this of the government's blame the muslim brotherhood the mother muslim brotherhood said they didn't do it what what grounds are the government basing their accusations on the first the case. the government has been leading. a propaganda called the war on terror basically they've they've used people to support them to crack down on terrorists there were
11:12 am
no real acts of terror with wide that were wide scale enough to elicit such rhetoric but this is what they've chosen to do and this is is this is the way the security forces have chosen to deal with the with the muslim brotherhood as a security solution and a rhetoric of war on terror so i think that what we've seen over the past few months is that all the blame for anything that happens is gone to the muslim brotherhood and someone even a representative from the police has said that the killing of protesters on twenty eighth of january was also the muslim brotherhood's fault it's basically rhetoric and they don't have a lot of evidence for it but they're using the rhetoric and pushing it and polarizing the country a lot more we'll get back to the muslim brotherhood just a second but if they didn't do it i wonder who did this was a huge blow. we don't know yet who can do it but there are extreme islamist groups that are in support of hamas
11:13 am
morsi and these groups have been pushed with their backs against the wall they've been targeted they've been scrutinized they've been arrested and they and they suffer real ill treatment while they're being arrested and the whole country is polarized against them and i think that this could be an islam it might be an islamist backlash to the extreme measures that have been taken by the state and not accommodating to any of their grievances a crackdown of course. on the muslim brotherhood from the governments we've been going on since the summer what is the current state of relations between the maoist continuing. it's a continued stand off it's it's turning into a zero sum game but i think it's always been the military's backs were against the wall for june thirtieth because morsi was adamant and did not make any concessions
11:14 am
and now is still a zero sum game after the military took over and there is no room for negotiation so this continued standoff means that things are tense and they're not likely to be concluded anytime soon although perhaps the muslim brotherhood has it diminished at all well among the public ever since june thirtieth was diminishing but but the idea not right now is the kind of support we're talking about is a very polarized support so islamists weren't really pro the muslim brotherhood have started to support them once again and people who are against all islamists have taken to the other extreme so what you have right now is really strong them in support from both sides but i think in terms of the wider public the muslim brotherhood still doesn't have enough like popular support and we'll see as the referendum comes how many people will vote for it's
11:15 am
a vote for either with the brotherhood or against the brotherhood that sort of thing and i don't suspect that there will be a lot of votes in favor of the brotherhood despite some support on the ground that's going to appreciate to see tonight or a promise me go to a middle east correspondent for more breaking news. the fact that an israeli airstrike on the gaza strip supported killed a young girl today it's also injured several members of a family there's a tit for tat currently going on we think it's escalating as well the i.d.f. saying tanks the military involved let's talk to paul asleep paula as i say it seems like this is escalating is the i was a going on certainly the israeli prime minister's called it very serious what is the picture. well yes kevin in the last hour the situation here on the ground has escalated quite dramatically one palestinian girl a three year old has been killed in the gaza strip and some nine others injured among those injured are her mother and her brother this comes as some ten israeli
11:16 am
airstrikes hit gaza over the past few hours now they targeted the are the refugee camp as well as islamic jihad and hamas sites both in the eunice in the south of the strip as well as in northern gaza earlier on choose day a palestinian man was killed by israelis west of beit lahia which is also in the gaza strip this was in retaliation to the earlier shooting and killing of an israeli man by a palestinian sniper now this is radio man was mending the border fence between israel and gaza when he was hit and he died in hospital what we're hearing now from israeli sources is that this is the largest operation that the israelis have carried out in terms of a strikes over gaza since the operation pillar of defense back in two thousand and twelve the i.d.f. is also sent out an alert in the last few minutes warning of border farmers as well there's always
11:17 am
a difference within the the cemetery of gaza to stay at least one kilometer away from the fence and the understanding of course is that we could be through the airstrikes in the coming minutes if not in the coming hours so the situation on the ground extremely volatile we're following it closely and everybody particularly concerned that this could escalate into something much bigger than what we witnessing at the moment your call from slippery from a political or middle east correspondent the french be with us lose continues here now to live from moscow just minutes from rome. no. this christmas no no no the north pole has been virtually invaded season occupied and so now santa is living in the occupied territories of the north pole. and oil up there rudolph the red nosed reindeer has been read designated

11:19 am
number one topic in the media since the former russian old tycoon free after a presidential pardon from khodorkovsky plans to fight for his imprisoned comrades to putin's reasons for letting him out of jail the five days since the release of been full of speculation analysis marcus papa told us papadopoulos from the u.k. magazine politics first has been following the media hype and explained why he thinks quite a cost he's being glorified in the west. if. he had done what he had done in russia but say in britain where i live he would have been for an instant there would have been no mercy from the british major and quite rightly as well. is a criminal but he served his time and that's what the justice system is about but it's important to remember that while his company you cause was built on the back of the pain and suffering of the russian people he is not this innocent individual
11:20 am
this in the same entity that we are that we are hearing that this is not a man who should be qualified in the west the only reason he's being glorified in the west is because he's a critic and an opponents of president putin. that's a quick little bit of wind up fewer tonight online elves against the government amongst the many stories a group strongly believing in the mythical beings apparently have now blocked the construction of a road to the icelandic president. read up more about that if you fancy r.t. dot com will tell you why and how it became possible the l.v. rebels were also there for you the divide between israel and the u.s. is getting wider as prime minister netanyahu lashes out at the n.s.a.'s mass spying practices. twenty forty just a week away now we're sifting through more the used top stories. these
11:21 am
are local to be counted so here braving the elements in order to stand up to us oil giant chevron. this comes after a massive hunger strike that returned the world's attention to the place that some have dubbed the gulag of our times. is an undeclared global battlefield in which yemen is just one of the front lines. oh. it's a modern day david versus goliath story local communities fighting for their land against the oil and gas giants seeking to drill for easy money so-called fracking technology widely criticized for not dangerous and devastating to the environment has been drawing attention across the world artie's police visited one you see the
11:22 am
fracking assistance in rural romania the. locals in this remote region of or mania have been saddled with an on going to guest us energy giant chevron is due to begin drilling for shale gas. the greek culture is our lives if they come to drill on our soil honey for sure we will die because we'll seen what they have done in all the places one of the crew of them up alone even if many residents here fear that the process of fracking could release chemicals into the soil and contaminate the water thank you. guys i'm so afraid of these kind of guess exploitation people see they will be big problems for our animals because the water will be affected and this one on the food for animals and for us and our children as well we have children and grandchildren what should we do these locals and environmentalist spent countless. now here braving the elements in order to stand up to us oil giant
11:23 am
chevron and the remaining government which is given the green light to start exploratory drilling and not feel david that without any public consultation the sense of betrayal is acknowledged by most protesters there are many in prime minister was against fracking during his election campaign but after being voted into office he changed his mind and granted chevron permits for the controversial practice for now nothing is happening chevron were forced to leave the area last week on able to get past the locals human chain around the site but it's only a matter of time before they retire and what if they can only guess we'll have a new future children represent the future the old people in the village told us that they can die but they say it's important for us to have a future chevron told us he that they have all the required permits to begin drilling and plan to return to the site and begin fracking safely assume as they
11:24 am
can something that's less than reassuring for the growing number of people gathering here. we hope to stop them even if it means being with our lives even if we want to send the army if it is fated for us to die so let it be but we won't give up until the outdoor fracking in romania. poike a see can gestate romania. because the fracking trends been picked up by corporations around the world not willing to give up for money making opportunities protesters in the u.k. indeed be fighting over old companies eager to drill on their land too despite being banned by european powers like france and germany to fracking will be of britain stand strong but campaign is there say even public pressure isn't enough to go over today. a key from our point of view is to keep up the pressure so the government and their cronies in big business can't get away with forcing this on to the british people what we're saying every time this this technology turns up on
11:25 am
the doorstep of a community in the u.k. that community does not want it unfortunately the government is preparing legislation at the moment and it's trying to make it more and more difficult for people actually to oppose this this technology and meanwhile they've actually put it made it possible for people to oppose wind farms but not fracking so this is obviously highly inconsistent from our point of view what protesters are also given corporations and their lobbyist a hard time in the us to where the lucrative shale gas extraction is booming we've got it watch our report on how americans stand the ground next hour the. story of the greenpeace activists arrested after the return to scale a russian oil rig in the arctic maybe reach a conclusion that russian authorities have begun dropping charges against them with one already set free what is really good is the details. this story began in september of this year when several of the activists on the arctic sunrise vessel have scaled only oil rig in the russia's northern water they were pulled down by
11:26 am
russian authorities and were arrested and later in prison today were charged with piracy because according to russian officials the activists were in fact putting in danger the lives of those who were working on the oil rig and endangering the oil rig itself later those charges were dropped two charges of hooliganism the arctic thirty work in jail for some time but were later released on bail however their criminal proceedings against them were still going on until the countrywide amnesty which was announced in the middle of december and already saw some higher profile releases from coming out from under it and now we are hearing that at least one person from this so-called arctic thirty has received papers granting full amnesty and the rest of the greenpeace activists will receive the same peepers and will be able to go home by the end of this week at least this is what their lawyers are telling us. here we'll update you on the top story been talking about the breaking
11:27 am
news polish to you go reportedly killed an israeli strike on the gaza strip tel aviv so used to put troops and tanks in retaliation to the shooting of one of its citizens on the border earlier we'll bring you more about that in half an hour the next a full news update with me meantime if you're celebrating christmas course around the world right now our very best to you and i come across the break exposing more dodgy dealings in the world of finance yes it's time for the courage to report. summer break a time when all. students rejoice and most importantly relax but in russia summer break for male students could change dramatically and involve lots of guns currently male russian citizens have to put
11:28 am
a year into the armed forces but the ministry of defense thinks that they can make things easier by having students spend their summer breaks in the military this training would tie in with their future professions such as engineering students being put into military engineering position now the question is does your summer break belong to you or another words to the government have the right to tell you what to do and make you serve in the army even if just for three summers during your college years i think the answer this really depends on your culture in places which haven't been invaded countless times or have a strong individual ism streak any form of conscription sounds barbaric and oppressive but if you come from a country that is less individualistic and has been attacked invaded by pretty much every country that possibly could like russia then having a draft makes more sense i think this program could work and if i was in college i would be pumped to spend my summer vacation with some heavy artillery but this is definitely not a universal idea for all countries i don't think liberals or libertarians in america would take too kindly to it and rightly so but that's just my opinion.
11:29 am
