least officers you know storms that. you are. required yes i do apologize we do not have a good connection with maria. yet yvonne what we will try to establish a better connection and go back to her but let's move on for now israel's army has blamed the palestinian group hamas for leading riots and attempting to destroy infrastructure at the gaza border they have been for weeks of palestinian protests there during the latest on friday israeli slight this killed four people including a fourteen year old boy in a statement the israeli army said during the riots burning tires were used to create smoke screens in order to mask attempts to damage the protective infrastructures rocks were hurled with burning items attached to them a floor and with the intention of igniting fires in israeli territory well correspondent bernard smith has been to meet the family of muhammad are you the
youngest victim of the protests. right or are you had dreams for her some most more than a good education marriage children. but a bullet to the had from an israeli sniper means this family now has to bury fourteen year old mohammad are you along with those dreams. while there are no hard allah says and. i used to tell him one day living conditions will improve political divisions will and i had been pushing him to continue his studies despite everything. mohammed was protesting near the gaza israel border fence at easter or on friday if he was throwing stones they probably weren't very big. this family video from last year shows mohammed 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 our children how does the killing of a child in gaza today help peace 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 the fence stop palestinian incitement and organize riots at the border and donald trump's advisor to the middle east dept in a full investigation by israel of mohammad are you is on their way as we mourn the tragic loss of a young life we must all resolve to avoid causing more suffering by responses to his death. mohammed's father says he couldn't stop his son joining the protest for palestinian rights doesn't. he was always smiling always teasing to me his father who was not a kid but the brave the whole neighborhood loved him never said no to anyone he just want to see our original village in israel. was buried the day he died

party that's part of a bloc in parliament several other civilians were also detained you know things were going quite peacefully after the talks broke down this morning and while he was talking to a police officer the red berets and special forces stormed that conversation and just drive to go away and the protests that we are seeing now the city has some of the biggest mania in yet is broken out because president who had said in the past that he had no intention of becoming prime minister after his two terms as president and it has gone and done exactly that. that's right they made changes to the constitution to switch the country's governance from somebody presidential to parliamentary in effect allowing him to run as prime minister this is really his third term ruling the country and this is what has caused many people to be you know tired of broken promises and understanding with the new elect moral
code didn't the the greater amount of power that was concentrated in the prime minister's hands. effectively the republican party in. the country for many years if not decades and how do you expect protesters to respond to the to the detention of the protest late in the cold because he has managed to get so many people across the country out on the streets calling on protests as you know to paralyze the entire state system so that power can be passed to the people. that's right in probably to twenty seven year history of armenians independence we have not seen such mass acts of civil disobedience and not only centered in the capital but throughout the country there has been a huge response from students from young people calling on student strikes and labor strikes it has been an extraordinary series of events something that this country has not seen and basically that's what people are doing they are self
organizing they're paralyzing streets where's bridges but right now our reporters on the ground are saying that thousands of people are trying to get to a public square yet we're hearing that police forces have surrounded the square which has become sort of like the focal point of the movement so it's a very fluid situation right now it's very hard to tell what's going to happen mrs yan thank you very much for joining us and giving us the latest information i know that you are trying to get down to the square yourself so we will let you go for now but thank you that is maria to joining us live from thank you. now malaysia's deputy prime minister says the killing of a palestinian engineer in kuala lumpur may have been the work of a foreign intelligence agency palestinian media have reported that was ambushed and shot me a mosque two motorcyclist then fled the scene hamas says he was a party member but tells us what the man's family is saying. this
is to an identified gunman opened fire at. the thirty five year old palestinian engineering lecturer was ambushed as he was walking to was in nearby boss in the capital kuala lumpur colleagues of the university shocked and by the killing so we don't see any thing dangerous we. said the only thing that we can see of. the only thing that could be is because of his expertise in his field of electrical engineering. a neighbor told reporters that he saw two european looking man nearby shortly before the shooting their family blame israel for the killing of. the israeli mossad is to be held responsible for that because the israelis can't tolerate any well educated arab and particularly palestinian mentality israel considers any well educated distinguished arab or
