and for more i'm joined by data reporter resign as who's covered the region extensively and is following this closely for us. tensions same to ratcheting up but let's take a step back if we can take a broader look if you could explain to us you know obviously the israeli palestinian struggle isn't new and this isn't probably unfortunately going to be the last time we see conflicts like this but some of the pot power dynamics have changed can you put it in perspective how is this current conflict different from others in the past yes because what we seeing now is 3 different places where palestinians were actually spread out and you know the palestinians and and israel was but you know nurturing that the palestinians were split into 3 groups one is in gaza which we're seeing now on the hamas rule one is in the west bank which is traditionally ruled by fatah who used to be rules of all palestinians but have been
weakened recently and there's the israeli arabs who call themselves also palestinians there you know arabs are 48 it's all part of one people and throughout the years we've seen a lot of splits in splinters you put to political reasons and so on israel was maintaining that actually benefiting from that sort of a divide and conquer policy but what we've seen here is that you lose a limb which was what the trigger for all of that is such an emotional topic about all of them together and this is why we've seen so many different uprisings and clashes in different scenes and israel. the biggest nightmare would be for these 3 groups who so far have been operating separately due to different triggers coming together and operating simultaneously in all of these different scenes in the west bank and gaza within israeli territories that would be probably the worst case scenario for israel and probably maybe a good scenario for palestinian national nationality if you ask palestinians. but
the palace i mean this is happening during a power vacuum in the palace with exactly this is connected to one of the leader of the the fatah ruled palestinian authority in the west bank but they haven't been election for over 15 years there were supposed to be elections in may they were canceled this is also another trigger that brought upon us this round of of events because for hamas that was a chance where they were hoping to use the election to show their might and their power how strong they are that they're also have great representation in the west bank once the elections are canceled they had to find another way to show the dominance in their connection to jerusalem into the wide palestinian causes and national national. so this power vacuum has been a big part in triggering what we're seeing now on the ground but israel has also had an ongoing political battle right as this conflict in particular mean for netanyahu his leadership well netanyahu is leadership was questioned and he has
been struggling the last 2 years with 4 sets of elections where he could not get a landslide he did not get enough support and at the moment of the you know last week we were at the moment the opposition forces for the 1st time seem to be making great strides in forming a new coalition without an attorney also he's ousted for the 1st time or so it seemed last week and then this outbreak comes about and it does 2 things 1st of all with the public there's a lot of support mr defense this isn't and you know it's always been he's always been seen by himself. by his supporters as mr defense for the state of israel and we also see political rival ways that have toned down everybody saying now is the time for politics we see people like banning guns he's the head of one of the leading opposition parties he's but he's also the minister of defense he's standing behind attorney out there seem to be united in this effort now so for him politically now is actually somewhat of a quiet front that gives him hope he can still reinstate his authority and his
leadership soon enough to say that this is a complicated conflict is the understatement of the year on foot and we have to leave as a result of thank you very much on the conflict in the middle east has brought people onto the streets in cities worldwide to protest against the violence here in germany thousands of marched in support of the palestinians. campaigners around the world organized rallies to condemn the violence in the middle east and to commemorate the displacement of hundreds of thousands of palestinians when the state of israel was created in 1948 most of saturday's events were peaceful although in berlin police broke up at least one pro palestinian gathering and arrested several demonstrators still the people made their voices heard. i just want it to be peace between jews muslims and christians we're all human but the
main message is. that my message is that the bombarding and the killing should stop . in a war there are only losers there is no winner. in this case children are dying on both sides. and that's not nice. elsewhere in the city a smaller gathering backing these release but most of the rallies around the world have been in support of the palestinians. in france police fired tear gas in an attempt to break up a rally in the north of paris crowds gathered even though city authorities had banned the march fearing an outbreak of anti semitic violence. there was also solidarity down under with a pro palestinian gathering in sydney. as the renewed violence deepens the rift in
the middle east many are around the world are uniting in protest. and it's turned out some other stories making headlines around the world thousands of people have been protesting in haiti's capital port of palms calling for an end to the island's kidnapping crisis criminals indiscriminately take women children and foreigners for ransom the united nations says 234 people were abducted last year and 3 times as many as the year before. the operator of the largest u.s. gas pipeline says it's resumed normal operations after being hit by iran somewhere attack but disruption to colonial pipelines network stretching from texas to the east coast triggered supply shortages and long lines at many gas stations. researchers looking to bring high speed internet access to users worldwide a take. a mission to space space x. launched another batch of starlink broadband satellites from cape canaveral in the

wages and pensions. those proposals were withdrawn but they helped pull young people onto the streets as reports emerged of police brutality deaths and disappearances. yet the violence the excessive use of the police and the armed forces in general has touched my emotions so it was obvious that i would come and speak our. animals in our hand up not on the left but we have a clear agenda police reform and the scrapping of the health law and how does this government respond assaulting our sisters killing us this is a clear example of social discontent this is no longer about political parties people are tired of the killings that's why we're here so colombia's deputy attorney general says a task force has been formed to look into allegations of police abuse. the government has shown interest in meeting with protesters as well for tear gas death and disappearances have kept opposition leaders on the streets trying to dodge
