1:03 pm
the rescue workers in gaza dig through rubble for survivors at the shattered refugee camp after a house there was hit by an israeli airstrike. also if it's my cousin's house we were surprised by an airstrike that hit the house without any warning we ran outside we saw the 4 story house get completely demolished it was completely leveled his sister and her kids were visiting and they were all killed all of them but. the 1st thing. this 2 month old baby called omar was one of 2 survivors who were rushed to hospital but at least 5 other children were killed and. we are still trying to recover more bodies and figure out who is who this is truly a massacre that cannot be described in words we don't know how he managed maybe he just stayed alive to be a witness of what happened to the rest of his family. israeli jets tanks and artillery attacked other sites across causer on friday including
1:04 pm
a bank as well as the interior ministry. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the bombardment of gaza will not end anytime soon and i'm additional to the senior leaders of hamas below. leave that they can escape from our armed forces but they cannot we can reach them everywhere we reach all these people and we will continue to do so they attacked us on our holiday in our capital and fired rockets at our cities they have paid and will pay a heavy price for that this is not over yet. the math and its allies responded to friday's attacks by firing about raj of rockets from inside gaza the israeli military said most were intercepted. as the fighting continues the humanitarian crisis in gaza grows steadily worse dozens of children have been killed since the shelling began and hundreds more have been displaced with their families aid workers say many palestinian children are already traumatized by past
1:05 pm
wars this is why it's so critical that we have to have immediate cease fire and decision for still. carry lifelong injuries mental health issues visible physical disability as well palestinians are sheltering where they can but they say no wearing gaza feel safe right now the jury gave him be al jazeera. or as fair to human palestinian journalist and gaza residents are you not things right now. well yesterday was a really really violent night i mean every night that comes we say that this has been the most violent since the beginning of the escalation but the night that follows is even more violent the raids that shook that refugee camp and the
1:06 pm
massacre that has been committed there was very like it was really extremely violent when i see a shot that refugee camp i mean that i'm talking about 10000 people living in one square kilometer this is the most densely populated area not only in gaza strip but in the entire world as we have several in that in the past reported. that they actually got a warning call telling them or asking them to evacuated their building because it is going to be targeted and once they went to their uncle's building which is the heart of building a 3 story building where also the privately was targeted they targeted that same building that they actually went to take refuge in 88 children were killed 2 women 10 people in that massacre. the father himself was not even in the house if
1:07 pm
for any reason israel might say that they would be targeting people who they think are part of the hamas brigades and so on. only one infant was brought alive out of the rubble even his daughter who is 5 years old at the hospital who was still alive died minutes after she got to hospital. amount of destruction in the houses around that building that was directly targeted is enormous when we say that one building is being targeted in gaza that means that 10 turns and dozens of the. other houses and buildings have also been totally if not partly destructed that means that thousands of families like we have now 10000 cratylus that have been displaced and are staying at schools at this moment so the situation is not getting any easier the statics of the early hours just the airlie
1:08 pm
hours there was an air raid in the harbor at st in the west end of the gaza strip houses are still continuing to be targeted we have 2 houses that have been a house in rough one that has been directly targeted and i don't want. we have one . as well and there is also a martyr in it one that has been killed which brings by the way the death toll to 140 people dying until now 22 of them were middle women and 1000 or kill have been doing that and 39 of them are children try getting of houses * all culture still goes on until this moment the raids are still violently going on we also know that there are no any international. there no any and there's no any international effort that has helped or has actually been able until now to
1:09 pm
bring a deescalation to this war going on ok. bring us the very latest from. the front very much indeed let's speak to tamara the director of strategic communications and a spokeswoman with the united nations relief and works agency chief joins us by skype from karl rove it's good to have you with us 1st of all can i ask your reaction to the bombing over your shop the refugee. we're extremely shocked to extremely that the state that we give our condolences to the families who have lost loved ones one family the family lost 10 family members so we're extremely the stressed about that development just like you are distressed about the entire situation in gaza and actually the entire situation of the occupied palestinian territory because what's happening in gaza cannot be the social there where the what's happening in the west bank the protests and the in this criminate use of
1:10 pm
force by the israeli security forces that were the trigger for the events in gaza and for what is now a humanitarian catastrophe in gaza and israel says they're not targeting civilians they say that hamas fighters are hiding among them so can you confirm are hamas sheltering in un refugee camps and facilities. i cannot confirm in any way something like that this is typical this information to hamas hiding in and un camps and that being the reason for striking either extremely densely populated refugee camps or causing excessive that much to the owner headquarters like what happened 2 days ago what i can say is that gaza is probably the most densely populated spot on earth and it has been under 14 years of air or sea and land blockade it is
1:11 pm
a place where the spare is extremely high and were civilians are trapped and where they receive every couple of years every 3 or 4 years they become the subject of an international of a for humanitarian crisis of international magnitude in the middle of this what is most important is to keep the focus on the palestinians themselves in the case of a drought on palestine refugees which are the predominant part of the society in gaza gaza is a society of 1900000 people 1.4 of them are originally palestinian refugees from somewhere else who fled the conflict in 1948 to gaza and whose status as a palestinian refugee has not changed so it's important to bring the focus back to the palestinian refugee unresolved situation which every few years becomes the subject of a conflict and for international viewers who are perhaps not not familiar with the
1:12 pm
ongoing situation we usually only return so. gaza and these refugee camps when they come under bombardment for just 6 plain suits it's of yours what conditions are usually like you pointed to the fact this is a very densely populated area a very small area what are conditions like how many hours a day do you usually have ever trust to for example when you're not coming under sustained bombardment. so gaza is a place that receives these bombardments every few years and where the infrastructure is routinely completely destroyed it's a place that because of the many years of blockade has not at all been able to develop at best every few years the humanitarian the international community manages to rehab illit they to rebuild some of the infrastructure where it works like health centers or schools right now of the power supply across gaza dropped to
1:13 pm
8 to 10 hours a day which really hugely disrupts the provision of basic services health services hospitals machines the water supply gaza is the place where the spare is really high where unemployment to soaring where the social economic conditions are really bad again primarily because of the blockade but also it's a place where cover it has hit really really high vaccination rates the months palace that in palestine are 5 percent that's very very low and while in europe has been at the forefront of responding and trying to mitigate the spread the government 1000 i have to reinforce here the message that covered 1000 comes on top of many many layers of conflicts and blockades and unemployment and despair and then massive psychological crisis in gaza if you're a 15 year old today in gaza all you've known as gaza and being under blockade the
1:14 pm
psychological impact of that is huge and the youth who find no prospects when they are in gaza today ok we're out of time unfortunately it's about out of 5 director strategic communications out on rockets thought sank you for joining us on the news our. well fighting between israeli police and palestinian demonstrators continued since then ice in occupied east jerusalem there's also been increasing violence between israeli jews and palestinian israelis and what the president has called a senseless civil war and a warning you may find some of the images and harry forces reports to stress and. after days of depressing racial violence across israel friday night in brought a new low throwing fire bombs into homes including that of 12 year old mohammed he and his younger sister burned his father said they'd been sitting in the living room when the molotov cocktail was thrown in he rushed mohammed to the bath the
1:15 pm
neighbors came to help but across israel neighbors a turning on each other on a scale that few can remember more gun violence and loud where 2 jewish men was shot the previous night by palestinians. and one of our guys tried to the from behind the mosque where he was shot we don't know the settlers or police or undercover forces the town has seen religious sites desecrated a jewish synagogue a muslim cemetery the prime minister was there again on friday. groups of writers are coming from the arab public and harming jews because they are jews i am explicitly saying that this is not the entire arab public and not even the majority of the arab public but it is a significant minority that harms violently and also harms the fabric of life we have built over the years between jews and arabs. and so to the crackdown israel's internal security agency detaining a senior cleric of the northern islamic movement for alleged incitement accompanying violent confrontations dozens more palestinians injured some
1:16 pm
critically. stands accused of fueling this fire courting and legitimizing the extreme racist right at the last election. to tackle gun crime within palestinian israeli areas. in the occupied west bank a violent flare up of a different kind confronting soldiers in forcing a military occupation this was just west of ramallah. this was hebron. and this close to the illegal israeli settlement. where try. to defend our land we have no arms nothing as in gaza and israel the toll mounted quickly israeli forces using live ammunition shooting protesters dead hundreds were injured. the in occupied east jerusalem jewish settlers and palestinians faced off one palestinian
1:17 pm
man was shot and injured. as well as erupting in the occupied west bank and continuing here in occupied east jerusalem this violence between jews and arabs is continuing to flare in israel itself the image that shocked so many earlier this week was the beating of side mussa he's now given an interview to israel's channel 13 t.v. saying his assailants 1st asked him if he was an arab yes how can i help was his reply the simple open innocence of that question now seems from another time carry force at al-jazeera occupied east jerusalem. when they'd abraham is in ramallah in the occupied west bank and needed today is david norma significance to the palestinians i was the recent violence impacts in all of this. there is a general strike to commemorate and also to mourn the death of past indians who were killed by israeli army by the israeli army either in gaza or in
1:18 pm
the occupied west bank we've seen confrontations erupt in several locations here in the west bank and we've seen medical figures about more than 1700 palestinians being injured 26 of them critically injured we have 8 we have 11 palestinians who lost their lives in his ready fire on friday one of them the israeli army said that he tried to carry out an attack against israel and this is why his body is still withheld this is a practice that the israelis do to kind of it's a punitive measure against these palestinians which also affects their families we are expecting more of the same today we are expecting palestinians to be heading to confrontation points where they say that israel has been using an excessive force against them to disrupt these protests and prevent palestinians from taking to the
1:19 pm
streets and this is why a palestinian to have been looking very positively at the news that came from the chief prosecutor have been sued who in march has opened an investigation into suspected war crimes in the occupied territory and she has released a statement lately warning against work crimes during the latest round of palestinian israeli escalation and joining me here to talk more about this issue is she's a legal research organization which is a human rights organization how do you view that statement from the i.c.c. . the statement of the i.c.c. prosecutor and the entire investigation open investigation into. israeli crimes in the occupied in occupied palestinian territories an important step towards accountability and ending israeli impunity that it had enjoyed for above 73 years
1:20 pm
without any consequences and israel has been committing its crimes and violations against the palestinian people without any meaningful consequences from the international community palestinians are do not trust into the israeli justice so called to destroy the system and so they are seeking accountability at the i.c.c. but we need to remember that holding if this investigation succeed into holding israeli individuals who are responsible for committing war crimes and crimes against humanity be it the apartheid crime or be it the displacement and willful can a and destruction of palestinian property this is important but this is not enough for a palestinian criminal justice is just one corner of justice that palestinian deserves palestinians need their right to return to their homes they were displaced from since 1980 they need to reclaim the properties that have been appropriated by the palestinian israeli state through its discriminatory laws palestinians need to
1:21 pm
their right to exercise the right to self-determination they need to protestant without being killed they need to sleep in their homes in gaza without fearing that the next day they leave they don't need to be sleeping in one bed fearing that. they want to be as one family in one bed not to losing their life as a whole family together recently we've seen in a report released by human rights watch it said that israel is committing apartheid for you as local palestinian n.g.o.s you've been saying that this has been the case for years how do you think that report and the international attention that is being focused on the palestinian issue right now helping you advance the case further the record. mission of apartheid by international human rights organization an israeli organization is important but as i've said this is something palestinian civil society groups have been saying for ever and unfortunately that the
1:22 pm
international community does not give much attention to the palestinian voices as if palestinian voices need an israeli or international very fire to say that israel is an apartheid regime but nonetheless this is very important recognition is the 1st step to words have being action toward ending this apartheid regime it is the time now that all these people that are acknowledging israeli apartheid to push for actions to push for extensions on israel so that the apartheid regime is and that sanctions and these and these countermeasures are not a favor for it to ask from the international community it's their legal obligation and if you're recognizing that israel is an apartheid state you need to act on this crime thank you very much a seal bridges she is the good researcher of organization which is the palestinian local n.g.o.s as we heard palestinians have been saying for years that there are living under occupation and many of them are using this opportunity that the world
1:23 pm
is watching to remind them that they still live under occupation and as they say next but for that is still ongoing ok to abraham they're bringing us the latest from ramallah need to thank you. as i'm assertions are being organized around the globe in support of the palestinian people this was the scene in sydney australia where a vigil was held earlier to protest against israel's actions in the u.k. . and south africa to germany crowds are set to join their cones following some of the demonstrations held since monday. well white house correspondent kimberly hall consistently says so in the u.s. political reaction. white house press secretary has been asked to clarify the president's position after critics accused him of failing to condemn israel she is continuing to do some cleanup the comments by the u.s.
1:24 pm
president joe biden on thursday where he stated that the response by israel is in his view not significant for a 2nd day agent psaki found herself having to address those comments by the president saying that in no way was this a minimizing loss of life that in fact the united states is working very hard and mourns the loss of every life whether palestinian or israeli take a listen to what she had to say israel has the right to self-defense our focus remains on continuing to use every lever at our disposal to deescalate the situation on the ground i think it's also important to remind people a mosque is a terrorist organization hamas does not represent the views of the families of the people who are suffering all of the palestinian people who are suffering as a result of this violence on but there is no justification for 1500 rockets coming
1:25 pm
from hamas so the argument being made by the white house press secretary as you heard there that she doesn't believe there's any justification for any firing of rockets what the white house is being accused of not just in the united states but around the world is being very selective about the starting point and once again completely ignoring many of the facts on the ground including those forced evictions of many palestinian families from occupied east jerusalem. ok we'll bring you know some live pictures though this is from ramallah in the occupied west bank we see protesters are gathering there to continue to protest the ongoing occupation is interfering former correspondent. need to abraham this is of course there's a when they're marking the 75th nakba so there we are live pictures now i bring in those. were protesters are gathering. to protest
1:26 pm
the ongoing occupation this is of course very much still an ongoing situation we're going to keep an eye on all these live pictures bring them back see bring you back to them rather soon as things develop and see the u.s. now are remembers all of the u.s. congress responded to israel's assault on gaza including palestinian american high standard. now on thursday she brought out a tweet spy and basher who'd been writing about life under heavy bombardment i want to read something a mother named the man in the gaza wrote 2 days ago she said quote tonight i put the kids to sleep in our bedroom so that when we die we die together and no one would live to learn the laws of another when. well played forwards her message to congress saying a man's words
1:27 pm
a powerful and she wished she could wrap her and her babies up in safe say what we can speak and i too am an basher she joins us from gaza by skype thank you for speaking says on the news a very powerful tweet and certainly you saw the reaction there from the congresswoman just explain to us it's out of worry that you often have the you and your children will die. yes of course. it doesn't people are living surviving my. every single day. we wake up to reply to messages like are you alive and. we're scared every single minute missing that we are next. when i do we didn't i wrote it while i was crying and. i want to remember her i want to say that.
1:28 pm
gazan people have 2 methods in dealing with such. such turf ignites. they either pull their the whole members of the families in one room. so that either of the of the bombing happens on the israeli warplane strike perhaps they all died together. or are they you know there's another method that. every individual member in the front room so that if a massacre happened or they bought the house one member would survive it's heartbreaking that the gazans. do choices while they don't actually have war shelters to predict them. well there's something. so to cut you off though that's something i wanted to ask you about just while we're speaking
1:29 pm
we're actually showing our viewers pictures of there were films by a gazan family showing all the families together reacting to the sounds of bombs outside i mean it's quite distressing watch for people who are not used to this if you don't live with this daily reality any israeli is really going to but they have safe rooms that they can shelter and it's not a facility available to families like yours in gaza when the worst happens is the replace of safety for you to take your children or to you just have to wrap them in blankets and hope for the best. there is no place actually it usually doesn't speak to the rule that it be think it is safe. and it will be horrible embers in it. or sometimes when the houses and. the palestinian families are gazan families in that with no holes they go on or was schools. because they think
1:30 pm
it is safe. and you can hear me actually while you were speaking there is. sound so bumping. here we can we can hear that actually and we do hope that you're that you're safe there. it is difficult for people who are not living in that situation to comprehend what this must be like what kind of effect this is having on your children if if it's ok to share that i mean how are they coping with this do they still smile do they still laugh. incidentally it was difficult when we slipped actually at 4 am and my kids skipped waking our. every every minute and i was it my husband and i took a very long time to call them down. it's terrifying it's traumatizing i don't want my hips to live like this i want it's
1:31 pm
a little meat so i don't want the the word to get to hear those screams that's why i like to eat it that's why i am writing. i believe of the powerful or i believe in the power of words and i want my kids to survive all of this and i don't want to say to them that's it you're not going to grow are to fulfill your dreams. and your tweet struck a chord with russia. i have important was that someone heard your message because the situation here your family live and it's been like this for years now do you think that this could make a change though people are listening this time around yes yes i believe that words are as powerful as well and will rashida played. with might we i
1:32 pm
watched it and i burst into tears because i felt like the whore were. the whole world has listened to us that well athenians aren't silenced and. i will keep writing i will even forming the whole world about what's happening. until then we live in peace again ok. joining us live from gaza thank you so much for sharing your experience your family's experience and as we talk we can hear those. those bombs and those shells being drops in the neighborhood we hope that you can get to safety with you and your children but for now i thank you for talking to us here on al-jazeera we appreciate it we're going to give you are going to take you back see these live pictures on the right hand side of your screens for viewers watching that's the live shot of gaza as we were speaking with him and passion of course we have we heard. we heard more bombing in
1:33 pm
the background the daily reality but we'll keep an eye on those pictures and see. see if more of those shells drop which areas of the territory are affected her mind of course causes a very very small circle of land a very densely populated strip of land as well on the left hand side of your screen more people gathering there in the occupied west bank in. a gathering there on the stage. the nakba known see palestinians as the catastrophe which is of course when the mass fleeing of refugees which led to the creation of the state of israel. so lots to keep on top of cheering this news hour we're going to keep our eyes on it for you bring you back and see those seas as soon as we have the latest developments but there is more news still to come on this al-jazeera

much higher elizabeth pradhan al jazeera new delhi. well we can speak now to parker do it and you say it's the news and current affairs program just story she joins us from veyron r.c. by skype it's great to have you with us on the news are it's distressing seeing these images of balls he's floating in the ganges what can you tell us about this. how many bosses are there until we know who they are. well hello thank you for having me i'm coming to right now from the prime minister's own constituency in voter nessie in easton and just minutes ago i personally went to a river bank by the holy ghost and counted 7 bodies that had to be buried in retreat leaves that had actually been abandoned nobody knows by who over the last 3 days i've traveled to the interior they have been it least 3 different villages
1:43 pm
where i have counted hundreds of bodies and it's gone well past the 150 bodies that your audience 1st heard about in fact estimates suggest that they could be 2000 up to the house and qualities so to just floating about in uncounted unacknowledged not even i did in the us call the house and basically we do not know if in bodies are being abandoned because we are stigmatized by having obeyed all that will not have money or commission. is mass graves by river banks and the big question is these bodies are never going to be tested for called it so when india is counting it's called it dead these are the bodies that are not even going to be included in our final count so the moral question that's really raised by the sight of salt cops is in the leader of the congo is are we ever going to know the full scale of the calamity that is on sort of being killed in the hinterland in the uk that is the border question that is really captured in the voting caucuses that i
1:44 pm
