right no where would. just a few minutes ago there was a charge from at least i'd say fifty or sixty police officers some of them will be in buttons others actually carrying m. sixteen s we managed to push back. a number of. palestinian protesters one of two of which they managed to catch and take back to their base behind me which you can see now so that caused a certain amount of tension and so but at the moment now things have calmed right down the police i think engaged in more of the cleanup and the rearranging themselves you can see behind me all sorts of movement of army personnel reposition themselves and police start to take control of the area and these demonstrations of beginning to roll out and i think we're at the beginning of something quite big you know just in two thousand and eleven just six years ago or so we saw what sparked
10:03 am
the arab spring then and how that shook a lot of governments long beliefs in the region and i think many of those same elites in the middle east will be wondering is this going to escalate and does this really but pose a threat in itself. or sunday has also seen process in gaza and clashes with the police in the city of bethlehem local journalists one who had any reports from the israeli palestinian border. the palestinians in gaza strip and the west bank continued their protests of the fourth day of anger palestinians in gaza are protesting on the buffer zone where i am now which is not helo's east asia a lot of confrontations and clashes are happening now between youths for testers and the israelis since that morning there were a lot of protests and demonstrations in students and press local journalists who were chanting slogans against trump's decision for recognizing jerusalem as the
10:04 am
state of israel where now everything's asked elating especially in bethlehem there are lots lots of that tear gas bombs and live bullets it's very dangerous now in bethlehem because it's the main act a lot of for testers in in palestine especially in bethlehem are very angry and moving to gaza strip there's only one injury on our us border with the tear gas and there was a russian correspondent who was also affected by tear gas bombs. meanwhile in jerusalem police have arrested a man who after a stabbing was a bus station left one person seriously injured. i'm out side at the central bus station in jerusalem where this incident took place on sunday afternoon we've watched the footage of what happened and it appears that a palestinian man looks like he's trying to enter into the central bus station and then out of nowhere stabs the security guard in the chest now we understand that
10:05 am
the security guard is twenty five and receive treatment at the scene for his injuries but was later taken to hospital he said to be in a serious condition sedated and on a respirator now police say that they are treating this as a terrorist attack and have apprehended the palestinian man they believe that was behind that attack i've been speaking to some of the medical crew who first at the scene described what they saw we were the first then do it on the scene. intensive care ambulance they took him to the hospital all this took place within a couple of minutes and in the latest development today we've heard from the israeli defense minister who's called in israelis to boy caught our of the businesses in the area where protests of being held saying that the arabs particularly those in an area called wadi which is in the north of a part of us are not part of israel but he did say later on in that interview that
10:06 am
he hoped all would be calm soon and that normal life would return. when response to donald trump's move palestinians declared three days of rage which ended with several people killed in clashes with israeli police. was. unfortunately a u.s. president makes a statement in the israeli citizens will need to pay the price for a dangerous days are coming to drill syllables how. was . it's going to be in default i think so here in bethlehem there is a large deployment of israeli horses on the ground as has been used rubber bullets palestinians are using
10:07 am
a molotov cocktail bombs as well as stone throwing it. was . i. was. listening. jerusalem is considered sacred by jews muslims and christians the jewish quarter of the city is home to the western wall the last remnant of the second jewish temple which was destroyed by the romans the ancient city also houses the shrine of the dome of the rock the oldest islamic monument still in existence and the hour x. a mosque the search holiest site in islam. well israel calls jerusalem its eternal capital however most of the international community don't recognize the claim no country in the world has an embassy in jerusalem only some consulates in
10:08 am
the western part of the city is mostly israeli and the eastern part of palestinian where his holy sites are a particularly sensitive issue with unrest frequently erupting over the well a number of european cities have also staged protests in support of palestine emergency session of the un security council was also convened and during the meeting of the fifteen members fourteen were united against just one the u.s. . ok we regret the u.s. president's decision moscow meant washington's decision with serious concern these decisions are helpful to the prospects for peace in the region our actions reflected an honest assessment of reality it is fueling tensions and increasing instability in an already volatile and turbulent region israel like all nations has the right to determine its capital city unilateral actions attempting to change the status of jerusalem risk buffeting the long existing foundation for thirty two
10:09 am
months of these really palestinian issue the united states will not be lectured to by countries that lack any credibility when it comes to treating both israelis and palestinians fairly well the decision by trump or sparked much debate and we discussed the issue with a number of guests. but the peace process it actually paves the way to peace because israel will be called upon by the same trumpet ministration to make concessions to its palestinian neighbor which it will be much more ready to do now that a basic wrong has been corrected which is to to rightfully acknowledge that they drew sloan is the capital the possibility is really seem blocked by what mr trump has done gruesome is a very very sensitive issue to the palestinians to the arabs to the muslims and to the christians of the world and what what he has done created a serious situation not only of mistrust but of instability and potential for
10:10 am
explosion in this part of the world the palestinian authority looks and the hamas is of course they look for any excuse to call for a day of rage so you know that the hamas is in business to kill israelis and to kill political opponents like the fatah and the p.a. uses the day of rage as an excuse in order to avoid making any headway on the peace process nerd into father really means a popular uprising and a popular uprising continue for a variety of ways what is going on today is an intifada what went on three months ago in jerusalem was an intifada but it was entirely peaceful and that's what our authority really aims at a popular uprising that is nonviolent is the best way of expressing the feelings and the rejection of the palestinian people of the trump and this israeli occupation. on tuesday the russian team was banned from competing at the twenty
10:11 am
eighteen winter olympics international olympic committee chiefs reach their decision based on the findings of an independent investigation into alleged state sponsored doping however individual athletes who can prove they are clean will be allowed to compete and trade neutral flag. please you know i did ask lee so will participate be doing individual or team competitions under the name olympic elsley from russia. no one thought about what it actually means for the athletes to go to the olympics under a neutral flag it's simply the murder of our national sport. while the probe headed by former swiss president samuel schmitz found evidence of
10:12 am
a systemic manipulation of the anti doping rules and system it also led to the suspension of russia's and then pick committee and a fifteen million dollars fine. however the schmidt report says it's unclear exactly who was behind any doping efforts. nevertheless the independent and impartial evidence do not allow the i.o.c. d.c. to establish with certitude either who initiated or who headed this scheme on many occasions reference was made on the involvement at the minister of sports level but no indication independent or impartial evidence appeared to cooperate any involvement or knowledge at a higher level of the state the simple truth is that in order to compete at the highest level you have to do something to stay there and when you have a very well paying job at the level of mr parker and mr reid ian travers target and so on they need to do to kind of stay on on top of us into doing
10:13 am
a new russia is very useful to keep this the one of the thing i would question that i have my mind is ok soros has been and so long as it was completely beyond what next who else will go after like my my money would be on nobody because they want to keep beating or sickie piece new drum say bush's bad russia is bad because it is the only bad one in order of things are clean in the case you know enough of the case that there's a lot of bad guys everywhere. you know it's just it won't change and there with this it will change even further well another i.o.c. investigation looking into individual cases this still ongoing and has already resulted in lifetime bans from the games the twenty five athletes most of them insist they are innocent and accuse officials of violating their presumption of innocence. because the store is real noise with almost no snorkel things privately with your fear of beach cleaner she only now believes knows the record is going to be a very slow i mean almost
10:14 am
a. dozen years nice but you're the. first of do it just reasonably just really should sit on the. board from us. and i want you to shoot of the dish to get used to the beach as. good national boiling there which to be trite the cows are worth but almost a thing even though i've been doing it you want your absolute joining what are your thoughts. to be interviewed or push a sting out of the opinion leadership in europe what they see with the option of watch towards. the door which in. the morning is not one. thing if you did that just to do it it's a display of work to keep. watching if you.
10:15 am
would let me put in said the decision against the russian team was politically motivated saying it's wrong to impose collective responsibility but the i.o.c. presidents gave it given him his an assurance that politics played no part in the outcome. the eye you see is politically absolutely neutral we would not allow her to be influenced by any kind of political considerations in. such a sporting metters they fielded exactly that question and they said this isn't a political decision but of course the world knows that it's exactly that this has been a controversy that has been clouded in political judgement and it's impossible to separate this particular decision from what's going on in the rest of the world regarding fake news and the allegedly intervention of russia into britain's bragg's
10:16 am
it vote and even the american presidential election so there is a lot of this kind of stuff swirling around the world at the moment a lot of it is beyond belief frankly about people are accepting some of it so i don't think you can disentangle the two things now that i'm a person has confirmed he'll run for the russian presidency in march twenty eighth or on that after the break. the law of hard selling you on the idea that dropping bombs brings us to the chicken hawks forcing you to buy the battle. you start trying to tell you to be gossiped about. as you call it now but. that we all know what.
10:17 am
no russian flag will fly at the twenty eighteen pyongyang winter olympics but there will be russian athletes. the russian national anthem will play out during official ceremonies but fans will probably chant and acappella rendition you can take the athletes out of the country but can you take the country out of the athletes. welcome back this week the russian military and now syria has been completely liberated from islamic states but it will though no particular area is now held by
10:18 am
the jihadists there are still small pockets of resistance the russian operation in syria began in september twenty fifth day when i still held more territory in the country than any other function and u.s. led coalition has also been involved in the northeastern part of the country or the area west of the euphrates river now liberated isos self-proclaimed caliphate effectively no longer exists on saturday the iraqi government also declared it fully rid the country of islamic state well during the russian operation in syria artie's correspondents were given direct access to the conflict. this is the airbase in love foglio from which russian jets are launching their sorties against this law makes they targets here in syria. that the
10:19 am
rates. in a time the pilots are ready to go what's a moment's notice. in this amphitheater laid down by the romans or most two thousand years ago that isis staged one of its sickest massacres the russian military considers it the crown in jewel of the operation here in syria. you can see had just some of the impressive military hardware that isis have in the possession that has made the battle for palmira so tough way extremely close to isis positions less than two kilometers away and.
10:20 am
were as a syrian artillery position overlooking the industrial quarter of their resort the battle is said to be fear isis fired back as we filmed shells began falling all around. we ran but the syrian batteries kept firing life indeed as order is still far from normal but at least they won't be starving to death and the more. that he may putin has announced he will run for president in the elections set for march twenty eighth and here and has the details. it was widely expected that vladimir putin would decide to run for reelection next year however he's played coil on the topic so many times over in recent months and well content but wonder
10:21 am
whether he was genuinely conflicted on whether to run for the presidency again or whether he was just being really good at keeping a secret and playing the media nevertheless we were put out of our misery when he said this but you go i'm surprised you for your support yes present my candidacy for the president of the russian federation. but you were sure frank you for your reaction but first of all for you last. but it still should prove to be an interesting race over the coming weeks and months with quite an eclectic mix of candidates throwing their hats into the ring one of the most prominent being a stop child who's been gaining headlines around the world she's the former reality t.v. presenter she's also a poster playboy amongst other things that she's considered to be the russian paris
10:22 am
hilton and what's also quite interesting about her is that she putin she's attended opposition rallies and she's promised to unite people against vladimir putin when all all the other interesting thing about her is that she happens to be the daughter of the former mayor of some pater's berg a man who vladimir putin himself has referred to as his mentor in those early days so that should sort of quite interesting but it goes aside there are an unprecedented number of women entering the race for the presidency next year which is quite extraordinary because it's the first time we've seen any woman and to the race for the presidency in russia in fourteen years and of course there are the usual suspects as well including the liberal democratic party head of bloody mir she were not scare the communist party is again r.d. zyuganov and the liberal yabloko parties grigori you. five from that are also business on but a bar is that tito of his from the party of growth he has pledged to
10:23 am
a champion the rights of entrepreneurs so quite an eclectic mix there for the russian people to think their teeth into ahead of the elections in march next year . around two and a half thousand people have gathered in the center of kiev demanding the impeachment of the ukrainian president petro poroshenko it follows the arrest of former georgian president turned to ukrainian opposition figure to be held saakashvili during a similar rally on friday well after saakashvili has arrest his supporters gathered outside the detention center where he's being held setting like two tires and dustin's psychotically is now on hunger strike he was first detained on tuesday on suspicion of assisting a criminal organization on that occasion he tried to evade arrest by climbing onto the roof of his apartment block well he was seized by law enforcement officers but a crowd of supporters pulled him from the police van slyke us really later claimed that his detention had been purely political in nature. does this appear this is
10:24 am
a dirty lying operation completely fake it's only being done to disorientate people and prolong the life of hucksters i'll keep these cuts i'll save them for poroshenko me earlier this year saakashvili was stripped of his ukrainian citizenship quote he was abroad in september his supporters formed a protective crowd around him and marched him across the ukrainian border from poland you since being pursued by ukrainian law enforcement. and i'll be back with the latest headlines in just over half an hour meanwhile for more on all astore at r.t. dot com. well let's let her. suck.
10:25 am
it up. close. that. they call me a useful idiot i mean you called me a useful idiot useful idiot useful idiots go expressing my opinions on t.v.
10:26 am
there are thousands of us doing it behind his record is a simple strategy we attack persons instead of talking about the org what's next why stop me from getting this close to the white house i'm with a group code pink why not ban the color pink one hour stretch me on the run i should be sent to the town of london because i'm a traitor brick me on the we'll put up with a long time of this sort of nonsense you don't scare me and i'll continue to voice my opinion i'll continue to speak out in good company i'm in good company you going with me you want me to because we are free thinkers. manufactured sentenced to public will. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the fine. be the one percent. we can all middle of the room
10:27 am
sick. welcome to worlds apart it will be no more russian flag at the two thousand eight hundred. but there will be athletes from russia the national anthem will be played out during official ceremonies but there will probably be many capello renditions from the fans and possibly even from the athletes themselves you can take the athletes from the country but can you take the country from the athletes to discuss
10:28 am
that i'm now joined by doing warry cheer on the institute of national antidoping organizations mr mcwhorter it's great to talk to you thank you very much for your time thank you very much alex and i were happy to participate you were of one of the people calling for the ban of team russia from the games. i've seen you feel gratified by the i.o.c. decision well the i.o.c. had a difficult challenge ahead of it for sure and they took their time to look at the evidence that that was made available and then they discovered they made a decision and. and i now though congratulated them for the decision that they took now as you can imagine this is a subject that leaves absolutely no wind in russian defense there is a range of reactions to the i.o.c. decision some people say that. the committee has sold itself out to hawks like you
10:29 am
i dare say that this is the least painful decision the i.c. could take where do you stand on that well the i.o.c. of course has its absolute discretion around the olympic games and and the currency that they use is participation so as they examine the situation i'm sure they arrived at a difficult decision but the decision was that the russian olympic committee their member should not be able to participate in the games and i think they've created a wise decision in allowing enabling a pathway for russian athletes to participate in the game so essentially what you're saying that it was a compromise of sorts well i think that the i.o.c. enforce the rules that it has its disposal and it led to the situation we find ourselves in they disciplined their member of the russian olympic committee and the
10:30 am
i.o.c. is about a good strong olympic games so they they recognize that and have used the expression they don't want to use collective punishment so they created the opportunity for. pleas from russia to participate in the olympic games well it's interesting you say he did they haven't actually resorted to the collective punishment because they are as i'm sure you would agree don clean the russian athletes who have been denied an opportunity to represent their country and the government not the kremlin not president putin but that country. one hundred forty six million people each and every one of them you said previously that you are not against russia you are against cheating but why then do you support these sort of collective punishment denies people who did nothing wrong an opportunity to be proud about da country well unless i misunderstand the decision the i.o.c. .
