10:04 pm
exchange of fire between what we believe are palestinian fighters and the israeli soldiers but in general the use of life ammunition has been intensifying by these 3 d. forces even before we witness that exchange of fire and we've seen dozens of palestinians being injured some were carried by ambulances to the hospital some by private cars or there were also violent confrontations between israeli security forces and palestinian protesters in bethlehem in the occupied west bank harry force that has more. there's been a group of palestinian youth here very close to an israeli military post they've been throwing stones and right now israeli army have moved in and they've managed to get one of the men involved so throughout the day this is what been we've been seeing the sort of skirmishes we're starting throws will get quite close within
10:05 pm
a few dozen metres of this military position built in to the separation wall between the occupied west bank and israel and they have had now come in to arrest or least detain one of those stone throws earlier they rushed them and they took up a sniper position on the road in front of us this follows a long afternoon hours worth of protests and confrontations here in bethlehem bethlehem often see these sorts of scenes at times like this it has been through 18 months of covert restrictions which of really devastated the tourist heavy economy it's been through more than 50 years of occupation of course and so these frictions these confrontations between israelis and palestinians often take place here and of course. now as well but what do you see in jerusalem
10:06 pm
and gaza in recent days. while israel's prime minister has warned the military operation against her. will continue. and. our enemy see what price we are charging for the aggression against us i am sure they will learn the lesson we will continue the operation in gaza no matter how long it takes we took on hamas years back and the enemies around us are learning their lessons of what we can do to them if they dare to attack us. well imran khan is in southern israel we're going to have an update from him a little later 1st though let's go to suffer through in gaza. we are hearing that the israeli military has warned of its plans to target other locations new locations in gaza what else can you tell us. well from what we see here from garz our after 9 days of reporting we could see the most of the targets specifically those in the last couple of days most of
10:07 pm
them are governmental buildings security buildings training count belonged to a palestinian fighting groups but in the 1st days of escalation we could see. most of the targets where is it the presidential buildings including the building which is full floor and i'll just get up building one. some more others and the neighborhood of 46 palestinians has been killed from here we could see we could report about the targets. that were targeted by the israelis on the other hand we could say that in the last couple of days. the strength of the fire although it's still the same but the targets have been the targets are different from the previous days of skull ation the previous days of the 1st days they were
10:08 pm
targeting residential buildings. residential compounds but now with the fire is more intensified on. offices security bases police and so on but still also even the palestinian fighting groups also that it used to live in a fire today for example they use more mortar shells towards israeli soldiers stationing across across across the border line with gaza which is something unusual in comparison with the previous days also go back to the humanitarian condition which is deteriorating because of the 9 days of israel it's collation on gaza the minister of health. so far more than 1500 palestinians have been injured and that the hospitals of gaza are not able to deal. with such huge
10:09 pm
number that is beyond the capacity of the ministry of health itself number of them have been sent to egypt for so deceive the medical treatment they also said that yesterday. one of the labs covered 90 labs all you one actually covered one to love had been. seriously damaged and they had to stop all that covered 19th floor up also they said that the department of covered 1000 in the hospitals. and told. injured people reception. i mean by injured people those who were injured in the 9 days of us collation they have been appealing the 'd international community and the humanitarian organizations to to send to provide the medical sector with the medical supplies that are running out from the from the gaza hospitals also
10:10 pm
thousands of palestinians they have to leave their homes or they were forced to leave their homes because of the have a bomb being near the borders between gaza and israel are now taking church you are in school for shelter and so in general there are other humanitarian crises also including electricity water supply water desalination sewage etc. many aspects to the suffering of the people of gaza right now south to the latest from gaza suffered thank you. well earlier israel opened the border crossing in the southernmost corner of gaza which is near the border with egypt now it means that aid can now flow into gaza that was welcomed by the un but so far only fuel supplies have made it in with the opening of cream scholem crossing today it has allowed dozens of fuel trucks from under the law to enter gaza
10:11 pm
regrettably other essential humanitarian cargo was an able to cross it is critical that the air is crossing is also open for the entry and exit of critical humanitarian staff humanitarian access into and out of gaza for staff and goods must be sustained and appropriate measures taken to ensure safe movement within gaza overnight we received extremely worrying reports of additional additional infrastructure civilian infrastructure being hit in gaza including in the central coast in $1000.00 testing lab and other health and humanitarian facilities in addition we continue to receive reports of significant displacement of palestinians within the gaza strip that's good others there is a monk who is in southern israel well let's follow up on the from the temporary opening of that border crossing because 8 of course is urgently needed in gaza right now but so far it's just not been able to get through. well what
10:12 pm
happened has been a very confusing situation all around it began in the early hours of the morning where some aid was able to get through good before that happened he's really released a statement saying the border sorry the barrier into gaza was shut nothing was going to get through that was very quickly followed by statement saying well actually we're in discussions to get aid through now there were a number of trucks the united nations sent into the karim. crossing some of those trucks all still there we understand they weren't able to cross once the barrier was shot so now we don't know what happened but at some point in the often ng 3 jordanian army mobile military mobile medical hospitals came straight past us but they didn't even make it as far as the crossing they got about half a mile down the road was just that way and they stopped and they were turned around
10:13 pm
and they went back and we tried to speak to the driver to understand what had happened the israeli police simply moved on saying we want allowed to speak to the dr i spoke to a senior u.n. source who told me there's no more aid getting into gaza we simply haven't been able to get it through what happened today is there was sustained wind bodman from the israelis by air land and sea that was followed by rocket attacks from gaza coming in now what was happening there was really interesting because we saw rockets coming they were intercepted by iron dome the so-called rocket defense system but still 10 people injured 2 of those actually died of their injuries they were farm workers we also heard that 2 soldiers in separate incidents had been injured one of those was actually at that border crossing into gaza whether that played into the israelis decision not to let the aid in we're not sure but remember
10:14 pm
this aid isn't a magic. it is not going to immediately solve all of gaza's needs it's simply a trickle and everybody in the community that we've spoken to as used that exact words a trickle now as all of that has been going on we've been hearing from the israeli military spokesman who said tuesday into wednesday there's going to be an unprecedented strike force on cause a and they'll be targeting areas that they haven't talked to before. worrying development there imran khan with the latest there from southern israel iran thank you that the most senior palestinian diplomat to the u.n. has urged the international community to recognize people's right to resist israeli occupation often you hear some say is an ideal has the right to defend itself what rights do we have do we have the right to resist occupation do we have the right to go to

10:20 pm
capital new delhi with more now on why the export of vaccines is being delayed. it was about 2 months ago that the indian government decided to considerably slow down exports because they realize that they don't have enough at home and about a month ago they halted them india was the biggest contributor to the un's kovacs program which provides vaccines to no income countries and because it's had to stop that low income countries such as india's neighbors may have a strong younger many in africa are scrambling to find alternate sources but despite stopping the export something like 66000000 they either donated all solved before realising that they didn't have enough even though they've stopped the exports they still don't have enough vaccinations have fallen by 50 percent over the past month and states have been left now to try and make deals with foreign vaccine manufacturers none have been able to so far because the government even

miners were sent to warehouses run by the red cross and other groups the spanish government is now sending $400.00 extra troops and police to boost seaters border force while appealing for calm. in the last thing a migration free and humanitarian crisis of this nature needs is for political leaders to show hatred and fear we therefore call on everyone that responsibility at the presidents and a sense of order prime minister pedro sanchez has counseled a trip to paris for a summit on international aid to africa instead he's travelling to see you to which is separated from morocco by a 10 metre high fence meanwhile madrid's dismissed suggestions the sudden rise in migrants arrivals is linked to a diplomatic route. last month morocco reacted angrily when it emerged that brahimi the head of the policy front had been allowed into spain for covered 90 treatment the algeria backed group has fought for decades for western sahara as independence from morocco analysts had warned the ra if
