investigate alleged war crimes in the palestinian town. they were going to hear monday night just to hear more of the 23rd of december welcome to this live update from the international news center with me kevin owen and 1st the nurse mentioned the renewed concerns in the u.k. over the state of the national health service after a woman died in hospital of cardiac arrest fallingwater family say was a 6 hour wait for an ambulance i mean broken a foot outside a home in south wales donna gilby was left lying on a freezing pavement until help eventually arrived the ambulance services apologized for the lengthy delay but also emphasized too that the n.h.s. is under enormous strain. we are sorry that our response took longer than we would have liked on this occasion lengthy waits for an ambulance or
12:02 pm
a sign of pressures across the whole unscheduled care system not just in wales but across the u.k. our t. shirt it was dusty next takes a close look tonight at the tragedy and the raft of challenges faced by the n.h.s. well we're hearing story upon story of the state of the n.h.s. and the crisis within it but this one really has shocked the nation after a woman died after waiting for 6 hours for an ambulance service after breaking her foot in the wells despite neighbors running around to providing her clothing and warm items she was then finally taken into hospital but later died of cardiac arrest here's the father's account of what happened. right she was waiting. they were dealing with a heavy influx of. this time we were told they were doing the best but they didn't know when they would get to. the call handle it it says that they were dealing with
12:03 pm
a heavy influx of calls plus they said they'd be there as soon as possible but the issue is they argue that it's not just a situation within the welsh and h s but the entirety of the united kingdom we know there's plenty of allegations against the n.h.s. when it comes to issues of being woefully short staffed and was fully under a crypt when it comes to hospitals across the united kingdom but as we know this incident is not isolated and there are several issues within the n.h.s. .
12:04 pm
well the n.h.s. has long been held as a beacon of british society and of course has been in operation since 1948 but the issue of the crisis in the n.h.s. has led to many people becoming quite concerned when it comes to many people outside a london hospital of thoughts of the crisis with an n.h.s. . my husband. and himself hospital. rob ford never had a problem the saying it's a worry too much people. see this is not true it doesn't look like it when you come into the hospital you see the doctors will be looking to know both what happens is the ambient people can't leave the patient until. they get
12:05 pm
seen so i think that's part of each of my. car for each intro and if you've got a call for a 1000000 population adding to the existing population every year and you're not building new hospitals you're not building new doctors for agrees it can't work. well this isn't the only crisis and scandal to hit the n.h.s. as of late as we know the heart of concerns is post breck's at trade deals and negotiations particularly at the heart of concern is the n.h.s. now the leader of the opposition jeremy corbyn has accused boris johnson of going down the path of selling off the n.h.s. we've now got evidence that under boris johnson the n.h.s. is on the table and will be up for sale he tried to cover it up and he secretly and this is the reality yes of for down negotiations n.h.s.
12:06 pm
is far for sale but truth be told there's a barrel of issues when it comes to the n.h.s. from the more obvious like cuts to services but also a growing population and ageing population evolving health care needs but one of the biggest most crucial factors at the moment is of course the increase of reliance says on the privatized sation when it comes to the national health care system so as you can see the seems to be an unending crisis. russia's foreign minister spoke out against the united states decision to impose sanctions on companies involved in the construction of the nord stream to gas pipeline so he says the move undermines the sovereignty of european nations and the stress of the project will be completed anyway despite washington's attempts to thwart it. so there were more states so it will be finished despite all these threats i am convinced that 1st of all the europeans understand their commercial interests in terms of ensuring long term energy security secondly of course they were humiliated
12:07 pm
and the words we heard from the german side show that our european partners still have their self respect that will stream to gas pipeline once completed it will supply germany with russian gas via the baltic sea at over 1000 kilometers long it's going to be capable of transferring 55000000000 cubic meters of gas per year to europe that's enough to supply $30000000.00 households he goes down off the exam into dispute right now over the project and europe's defiance of the us washington has weaponized sanctions it's official along with spending on nukes the army and cyber sanctions are in the u.s. 2020 military budget it started in mission for the year the elimination of one of russia's gas our trees into europe currently under construction the united states commands all our european partners who have taken a strong stand against north stream 2 and we commend others to do the same germany is totally controlled by russia because they were getting from 60 to 70 percent of
12:08 pm
their energy from russia and a new pipeline this pipeline if completed. would make europe even more dependent on russian energy we don't want your energy supplies to be defended and. to be fair washington has been backed into a corner here it's been arguing and puffing over the project for years dishing out threats and blackmail but to no avail the threat of sanctions has seen key european contractor all seize hold its operations nevertheless in an admittedly rare act of disobedience to the u.s. europe has been on russia's side determined to have the pipeline built as a matter of principle the e.u. opposes the imposition of sanctions against you companies conduct a legitimate business deal is a good federal government is against extraterritorial sanctions we don't approve of this practice we oppose especially extraterritorial sanctions that hit germany and european countries. washington has decided that even the closest allies don't
12:09 pm
deserve mercy if the us geo political and commercial ambitions are at stake why well it's easy follow the money russia doesn't ask much for its gas and north stream too will be europe's cheapest way of getting the blue fuel and that's in stark contrast to the alternative washington is trying to force feed on its treasured allies across the atlantic shale gas because really there's only one economy that has to be strong uncle sam's even at the expense of its nato partners and the made in america stamp may be fancy but the markup for the freedom brand makes the whole of outright economically stupid for the e.u. also washington's been trying to convince brussels that tightening its belt and enjoying a bit extra economic stress is well worth it because it's all for
12:10 pm
a good cause supporting a nother european friends. the need ukraine which had been left out of the pipeline deal will keep working together to stop the nord stream to project that undermines your creates economic and strategic security we do not want our european friends to fall prey to the kind of political and economic manipulation russia has attempted in ukraine since it cast off its soviet shackles it would create another tool for the kremlin to use russia's energy resources to divide europe and undermine and destabilize ukraine it was almost like russia listened because hours before sanctions hit north stream 2 construction moscow in kiev shook hands on a gas transit deal so europe all out winds from the pipeline both economically and geopolitically seeing russia and ukraine finally touch base again and this statement by the u.s. envoy to germany hasn't aged well at all currently there is
12:11 pm
a lot of talk in germany about doing more for europe and we believe that when it comes to north stream 2 we have taken an extremely pro european position washington's crocodile tears are not fooling anyone anymore trying to maintain a compassionate face pretending it's acting in the best of intentions only to have itself exposed as a super bully rolling out one creative plot after the other of forcing its will on friend and foe alike a spokesperson for north stream to spoke to us direct that the project is essential for ensuring europe's energy security adding that work will be finished as soon as possible we are several analysts for the views on the escalating to political tussle over it. well out of this risk of me is due to the effect that switzerland the so ready that very day it's a traditionalist recall all the shit with the banks and so also the very sensitive
12:12 pm
question that us is sucked out in something to do that awkward sorceries unless they try to throw out all the problems. the 6 leads the position of and the specific oddities. described it america doesn't have to be part of every deal that is made on the planet and there are important of course our most important allies are germany on the other hand they have no problem whatsoever to quote the allies under pressure which is not sort of an act of friendship the i believe that the americans were hoping that their pressure would work along the way at some earlier point and now they don't they realize that europeans are very firm they want to complete an austrian to they want to have the cheaper russian gas delivered to europe and only now are they taking actions because they realize that the game is lost and now they're putting on sanctions to make it difficult for russia and
12:13 pm
the europeans to close the deal u.s. interests that top maintain a rift between western europe and russia because they need in the future more than even more than in the present they need. to have a close ally and did a highly disciplined drove us atlantic western europe at their site. israel's ambassador to the united nations is launched a scathing attack on the international criminal court accusing it of diplomatic terror itself localizations chief prosecutor fatou bensouda announced on friday her intention to investigate alleged war crimes in the occupied palestinian territories . i am satisfied that there is a reasonable basis to proceed with an investigation into the situation in palestine war crimes have been being committed in the west bank including east jerusalem and the gaza strip the i.c.c. prosecutor's decision has turned the international criminal court into
12:14 pm
a political tool to do legitimize the state of israel this is a dark day for truth and justice bad advice and now after a few years of hard work in full and also providing all the necessary information about the crimes committed by the occupying forces against the palestinian people the okee point palestinian territories the decision was finally made today this is a great day for us we have achieved what we wanted the ice c.c. has the authority to hear cases relating to war crimes genocide and crimes against humanity israeli officials insisted that it got no jurisdiction to investigate alleged crimes committed in the palestinian territories as palestine is not universally recognized as a sovereign state the court's top prosecutor has signaled her intent nonetheless to look into alleged war crimes carried out by both hamas and the israeli defense forces since 242.
12:15 pm
she won jabbering as the director of the ramallah based al hoc human rights organization he told us all crimes committed in the territories should be investigated but that israel is not interested in the living justice for palestinian victims. they don't allow for instance for the special robot wars to get in to investigate they don't allow for the commission of you know the u.n. commissions of inquiry has to come to investigate this is the case you know this is how the israelis dealing and treating kerry says see it doesn't work on lean one way and the palestinians all of them to accept. that if there is crimes you know committed by palestinians literally i see the size of that goal after
12:16 pm
the palestinians at least 3 months or something like that but why the is that is the concern from that if they know well that palestinians committed crimes this is the i.c.c. go after them. but i think they don't want for this mechanism and for this tool and for this or for 80 to function it 16 pass fail hybrid even thanks for watching us tonight hope to stick around for at least the next 10 minutes as our news continues after the break turkey's been boosting its military should support to libya's u.n. recognize government just as the west strikes all deals with a rival administration is closing in on tripoli could be a big mess they're about to kick off where across it among the stories ahead.

dimension. and puts libyan interests at the forefront we are not on any side of the conflict. on paper france supports the g n a it is after all the un recognized government they've said flowery things called for peace hosted fruitless summits that led nowhere so it was strange when the g.n.a.t. came out and accused france of supporting a warlord. we are surprised that france does not support our government that is democratic but supports a dictator a few months after those words french weapons were seen in the hands of how stars forces advanced weapons things have become very serious serious enough to jolt an old school interventionist into action. 8 years ago the united states led the mob the bombed libya into oblivion they
