10:12 am
allah says and. i used to tell him one day are living conditions will improve political divisions will and i had been pushing him to continue his studies despite everything. mohammed was protesting near the guards israel border fence at easter or on friday if he was throwing stones they probably were very big. this family video from last year shows muhammad at the zoo he slight aged just thirteen here it's hard to imagine six months later he posed a serious threat to the israeli military. death prompted an unusually strong reaction from the u.n. special coordinator for the middle east peace process nicholai martin off said it's outrageous to shoot at children how does the killing of a child in gaza today help piece it doesn't it feels anger and breeds more killing . a former israeli military spokesman responded please go to gaza engage hamas and get them to stop sending people to defense stop palestinian incitement and organize

of muhammad what are they saying. well the israelis say what they've said essentially after every one of these friday protests so far they've said that if essentially these protests have been used by hamas as a cover hamas has used young people children women to approach the friends to try and infiltrate the funds and israel has again released video and photographs of people who. put burning material on kites to fly them over the border to try and set fire to israeli territory they show people trying to get through the fence and look there's nobody on this side in gaza will deny that these things are going on that some people are trying to get through the fence some people are lighting fires on kites to try and burn israeli territory i've seen those cards myself go over the over the fence nobody really denies that's going on the issue is this the is israel the justification israelis using to use live fire on these people israel says that
10:15 am
hurling rocks israel says they have let these kites nobody is read doesn't say anybody is using live fire idea israel has used deadly force to react to what is coming from the gaza side we have now thirty nine people killed over four weeks of protests and many hundreds injured many particularly young man with life changing bullet wounds to their legs some the problem i'm pete stated others will be crippled those legs will be crippled for life so the issue is the strength the violence of these rarely reaction to what is happening in gaza and thank you very much for that to find out it's been smith for the netas live and gaza thank you. every weather check next they're saying affect and malaysia's government adds to the entry over the matter of a palestinian engineer and one of the bomb plots. good grief you told me between north korea and south korea on the recording you know yeah.
