8:10 pm
prosecutor has said that it is ready i. we should be conducting an investigation urging one this. does it mean that an investigation would be open or that it has already been opened? this only means that the circles within the israeli army are talking about the potential of opening an investigation from our experience. it's been very rare that israeli military opens investigations into killings of palestinians. and in their rare cases it does. it almost never leads to an indictment and when it does lead to an indictment, the light at the sentence is usually light and palestinians say it's this proportionate to the crime. that's why they're hoping to get justice from the international criminal court. china has warned the u. s. president not to underestimate beijing's resolve on taiwan. so barton started intervene militarily to defend the island from any invasion. he spoke in tokyo on an asia trip. he hopes
