"Way in about 20 minutes. That's news Day. Let's not there with the tensions in Jerusalem, as the escalation has further intensified the violence there overnight, Hamas militants fired more than 50 rockets of the city of Ashkelon, in southern Israel on the Hamas run Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza, said 20 people, including Children, Died as a result of Israeli strikes in retaliation. The Israeli ambassador to the U. K C P hot, overly defended the steps taken by the government. The situation is that Israel's capital Jerusalem, was under attack today over 150 rockets were fired to Israel cities. It means that the majority of the kids of Israel cannot go to school tomorrow because their schools being under fire When those are the circumstances. Every sovereign country has one obligation to its citizens to protect them. Well, tensions between Israel and Palestinian spiraled in recent days, One major cause of the tension has been postponed. That is a court ruling on whether four Palestinian families can be expelled from the ship Jarrah area off the city. Make way for Israeli settlers that is in the east of Jerusalem. So how is this being felt by Palestinians in the area? I Dick LeBeau is a human rights activist who joins us now. Welcome to news day We heard the UK the Israeli ambassador to the UK They're saying every night every sovereign nation has a right to defend itself and While 150 rockets gives them the right, she says. What do you say to that? Well, I am cannot really condemn. I do condemn the rockets of Hamas. I do not believe this was a correct choice. I believe everything was going very well coming when it comes to demonstrations. The unity seen in Jerusalem has really been unprecedented. When the Israelis police decided to close Jerusalem And forbid the Palestinians from coming from 1948 into the old city. All Palestinians got into their car and we're prepared to go pick up all the people who wanted to pray in a lots of mosque from the highways. They were coming from this Walking on the highways towards Jerusalem. I mean, this act of fascism cannot be done. This is unacceptable. So why would what would people being told us to why they were being prevented? From coming in. And the excuse was they had an intelligence on do that They could not allow Busses to pass. So it was on women and elderly women and young women and, of course, elderly men. But there were so many women invest majority were women, elderly women And all these people were coming on Busses from 1948 said territories off Israel, too, into the old city, and they were stopped too well to practice their rights off prayer under freedom of movement. There was no basis for forbidding them to access a lot, sir. So what you're saying is Hamas rockets, not withstanding people have been in recent times. Living more peaceably side by side. You're saying it's the security forces that have that have Of have sparks this recent round of violence. Yes. And I believe that Hamas, uh I felt it was acting in unity. But sadly, every time something happens in Jerusalem, and Thomas retaliates this way, guys, they're suffers very badly. I believe that these decisions are made in a way that have not been calculated, and it's very sad. As it has escalated to this point what can happen then because obviously the latest escalation of violence it started with a postponement off these hearings, the Israeli Supreme Court was going to hear a case superior against an eviction order. Of Palestinian people in favor of a Jewish settler organization in east Jerusalem. And that has just been knocked back down the calendar and these kind of issues just come up time and time again. There's always flash points almost. You could look at a calendar and say, Well, you know, that could be a problem down the line. How can that one? You resolved because clearly when something ends up in the Supreme Court, the politicians have failed to negotiate any kind of peaceable solution. Is there one to be found? Almost, you know, the people living in the areas that they've lived in for years. Well, I suppose I from my knowledge and my human rights and international law. I can tell you that the legal basis for these evictions is unacceptable. Jerusalem is a occupied territory. East Jerusalem is still considered corpus. Separate, Um, on unoccupied territory. You cannot take these decisions. In an occupied territory. The evictions should completely be well not even for spoons, but canceled. Thank you for your time talking to us here On news day today, either Club. Oh, she's a human rights activist Andre updating us from the Palestinian side of the argument on the recent escalation. Violence in a Jerusalem Let's talk a pandemic. Let's talk India, of course, in the.

Greens, whatever they can find. Prolonged drought is only one part of the story behind this hunger crisis in security is also a play. Let's talk to Gail Border. A reporter has just made a documentary in the south on the hunger crisis. Welcome to news Day, Cale. Hello. It's pretty astounding. Really watching your report on people eating Locusts to survive feeding Locusts to their Children as well. Talk us through. What you experienced when when you went there. Um, it was really shocking. We didn't expect that. Basically, it's very difficult to have access to those regions on the first villages. We got access to, um, we saw, um Almost all the Children very, very thin. We were shocked. And then there was this woman who invited us in her small house and who told us you have to see what we've been through on Deny Saw Grandfather really, really seen, he couldn't move. Because of starvation. So he was there all day long in the house, and there was this little girl who couldn't walk. She was already two years old, but she couldn't walk because off the famine on They were lucky. They said They were lucky because of the Locusts because without the locals, they would have died. That's what they told me. It And it comes to something when people regarding that is a stroke of good luck that they actually have Locusts to eat. And it's not just the drought, is it? I mean there. There are these bandits that the hull Who are making lives so much worse for these people. Who are they? Why they there and and tell us how they're terrorizing these communities. Um, indeed, you have this massive problem of insecurity, and it's not new. And basically, it's um Teenagers or adults who have no jobs who don't know what to do and who have nothing on bond to survive. Or because they want to earn money rapidly. They still, um there's still cattle. They rob entire villages, they terrorized the population. Andre. There is not enough. Uh, stuff from the administration, not enough police to arrest them so basically in the region Yeah, and you see the army going in the police going into the region and giving people advice and how they can protect themselves? Well, they also do is when there is their age shipments. They kind of hijacked those as well. So it's making things even more desperate when there is help. Almost getting to these people. This is also a problem, isn't it? Yes. Is that its term? The main problem off those people because they already have been starving. And they are victims off those of the hollow bandits s O the group off the the group of Army that I saw was the only one in, uh, in a vast region, so it's very difficult Tonto to find a solution for this. Don't have a bed. It's because there's a lot of loads of them. S so yes. So the Villagers have to defend themselves and not wait for the army to help to to help them. So there was this small group, but most of the time they are alone facing those bandits. Okay. Go. What I mean, briefly, if you can. What I mean, you've drawn this this problem, the plight of these people to the world's attention. Now there was a policeman who'd been attacked. Also in your report, who said This is corruption. It goes to the central government. This people in government who are protecting these bandits. These criminals come out and they get promoted in government. Is this that the heart of this? The government doesn't want to fix it. It's part of the problem. Yes, Corruption and complicity are part of the problem. Definitely. That's why it's so difficult Torto find a solution to this to this problem because those Bennett's bring a lot of money because there they still like Thousands of cattle on but it's a lot of money. So off course they have helping hands in the government and some elites are our accomplice. Thank you for joining us Gael Go border there.

"Is the BBC World Service. I'm Manuela, Santiago San and in business daily shortly. We ask three leading thinkers from the world of economics and finance to give us their predictions for the year ahead. Twenty nine thousand nine kicked off with volatile financial markets and a weakening global economy belt up for a bumpy ride ahead. That's after the news. BBC news. China has taken a major step forward in its efforts to become a leading power in space exploration by announcing. It has successfully landed a robotic probe on the far side of the moon. State media says the chunky four spacecraft touchdown early this morning in the unexplored south pole Aitken basin. South Korea says North Korea's ambassador to Italy has gone into hiding with his wife Jo song Gill and his wife are thought to have left the embassy in Rome in November. They are reported to be seeking asylum.

Eric drew was arrested in Wednesday night on suspicion of organizing an unauthorized protests on the showings LIZA the scene of rioting last month. I yacht abandoned nine years ago in a storm by teenage American round the world sailor as we appearance off southern Australia. Abby Sunderland said seeing the vessel again brought back many memories. Good and not so good. She left the boat after its mast snapped BBC news. Hello and welcome to business daily from the BBC. I'm Manuela also in this prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future so said, the Nobel prize winner physics Neal's board, but that isn't gonna stop us from trying. We ended twenty eighteen with volatile financial markets and signs of a troubled global economy. So if last year was a bit of a wild ride should we hold on even tighter for twenty nine thousand nine we've brought together three leading thinkers from the world of finance economics and politics to discuss what could be installed and goes your contrary. Well are served twice as Nigeria's finance minister, and is a former managing director of the World Bank. Jeffrey Sachs's economics professor at Columbia University where he's also the director for the center for sustainable development. And we'll Hamill Aryan is chief economic adviser at the insurance giant Allianz and a former CEO of pimco, the world's largest investor in bonds, which. Liens now owns Muhammad, Larry. And I I do not expect a global recession because the US can avoid one as long as it doesn't make a major policy mistake. I do think however that parts of Europe will feel like they are again in recession and China will struggle to soft land is so no global recession, but there will be spots of significant economic hurt. Jeffrey Sachs, what do you make of that? I think it's important for us to speak. Not only about the short run business cycle, which is inevitably on people's minds. But on the fact that major challenges that continue to worsen environmental crises water, crises climate, change, crises migration. Forced by people facing violence or extreme poverty will not be addressed in one thousand nine hundred. It's very important that we not focus only on the ups and downs of the next quarter. But on the fact that we face major problems that need longer term thinking and longer term problem solving and we're utterly distracted right now. That's a very serious issue. And so whether or not there's a recession twenty nine thousand nine I would emphasize we will not be solving or even making much progress on major problems the way that we're going and goes you contrary without where does Africa fit into this picture. I think before we addressed the issue of Africa. I want to strongly support both Jeff and Mohammed have said on this and to add that really we ought to look at some medium term trends, which are continuing to one thousand nine hundred eighteen and beyond Jeff mentioned climate change. Also want to mention demographics. They demographic situation and the world will continue to. Underpin some of the performance slowing of growth in the developed world. Thirty percent of the population in Europe by twenty thirty. We'll be sixty and above twenty six percent of the population in North America will be sixty and above and six percent of the population in Africa will be sixty and above so for the developed countries. This means slow productivity slower growth, and there's a potential for people in Africa for Africa itself with this young population to be able to contribute in a dynamic way. But in terms of that change that you're talking about the demographic change at the same time Europe is facing a migration crisis, particularly with a lot of Africans coming there. Do you expect to see a repeat of that in two thousand nine hundred nineteen I think with the arrangements that Europe is making with various countries not only Turkey as many people talk about. But also, they're specifically made arrangements with several African countries to be able to return migrants. With aid to development, so as to try and create jobs. I think the rush of migrants will not be as difficult as the phenomenon we've seen in this past year, but it will continue maybe not at the same rate. And I think we really need to work together between Europe and Africa to see how we can continue to create jobs in Africa. But also there will be a need for labor in some of the European countries outcome, we have a winning situation whereby you have agreements to bring in people who come work and earn income switch. They can send back and have managed migration process instead of the very disruptive way that migration is happening now, but a lot of politicians and people in Europe don't see it in that kind of mutually beneficial way. That is true. I'm hoping that they'll be some courageous politicians. But if not Africans don't migrate because they want to live in other. Countries. I think we should think about what do we need to do primarily with Africans themselves taken first responsibility. But then having other governments work in a collaborative fashion to create jobs in manufacturing in agriculture in other sectors within the continent. And then we can keep a young people working. Aaron this economic slowdown that you foresee for two thousand nine hundred nineteen all these problems that goes, easy, and Geoffrey of outlined that imagine they will just be exacerbated by an economic slowdown. There will I mean, what you're hearing from my colleagues is the cost of too many years of insufficiently inclusive and insufficiently sustainable growth around the world and that fuels all sorts of problems that were apple by the global financial crisis that were amplified by a sense of economic, insecurity and that are being amplify. Fide by politics that exploiting concerns about identity, and that's why you have to start somewhere to break this vicious cycle. We have the lowest level of multilateral cooperation that I've seen in Sweden decades of working on these issues. So it's going to be a real test for political leaderships and without the political leaderships. You will not fix the economic financial institutional and social challenges that faces and goes, did you see that willingness? I think you have to look at several levels. I know that at the level of top leadership in developed countries that disagreements about which direction to go. But when you look at issues like climate change, you'll find that there is a strong movement, even knew certain countries are not willing leaders are not willing. You've got a situation in which civil society business. The private sector cities states are willing to go forward to cooperate on some of these issues. Are you thinking about? American particularly here the United States. Yes. In the United States. We've got cities we've got states we've got business globally that is pushing in a certain direction, and so whether or not we like it for certain of these global issues, it's happening. I think no way for instance, has announced that from twenty twenty five it's not going to have any fossil fuel driven cars, but only electric cars China that has launched a carbon market and aiming for low emissions and carbon trading. You've got other types of jurisdictions that are acting. So even though it looks like multi-laterally, there's not the kind of cooperation in certain areas in others. There is you're speaking there about people working together. But at the moment, the big issue in the next month or two even for the next year is whether China, and the US will sort out that trade differences, and this is where things get really complicated. Don't they? Jeffrey sachs. The US is absolutely neurotic about China. Or at least the US security establishment is I mean, how dare China become an economy at the scale of the United States in America's exceptionalism way of thinking America's supposed to be running the world. This is supposed to still be the American century were basically seventy years into that statement that was made in nineteen forty one. So from US point of view, not my point of view, but from the point of view of a zero sum world where somebody's on top. And somebody else has to be subordinate. The US thinking is China's just gotten out of hand too dangerous. And now we have to stop China from being able to continue to expand. It's a threat any gain of Chinese technology is a military and security threat to the western world. And so on and this is leading to way campaign against. China's major technology companies like, wow, we probably most in the news. But by you've criticized the arrest of this top executive of. Wow. In had a lot of backlash for that. As well. Have you? Absolutely. I pointed out that if you wanna talk about major companies that have violated US extraterritorial sanctions, you could start with almost every major Bank in the world. But I don't recall a single major US or European banker being hauled off from an airport into custody. The way that the CFO of was so I regard it as utterly extraordinary and provocative that says a lot about the toe of these trade talks, doesn't it? The interesting thing in the reaction for me was boy, how many people are ready to jump to a Cold War or more in the west with China. It's almost a kneejerk reaction that of course, they're guilty. Of course there. Stealing. Of course. They cheat were perfect. They cheat. Because if we are divided this way, and if were in a rasping each other's. Citizens, and if were trying to block offered the world technologically in and so on there's no hope that we're going to solve any of these problems, and it will not just be a zero sum game a so-called. It will be a negative some outcome. Everybody is going to lose from this. And that's unfortunately, the path that we're on with in temperate American president a hothead and this kind of geopolitical anxiety applied to qualify little bit..
