4:03 pm
to take the law into their own hands. people here are worried that this already serious situation may escalate. it is now up to israeli and palestinian leaders to insure that doesn't happen. al jazeera, east jerusalem. >> palestinians in gaza are reacting to the teenager's death. hamas supporters are holding anti-israel protests. nick schifrin is in gaza at the protest. nick, if you would, tell us what is happening where you are. >> reporter: yes, tony, there are two or three thousand people behind me, and 30 cameras or so. this is a show of defiance on behalf of hamas. as we try and show you the crowd you can take a look at the people. there are about 2,000 or 3,000 from all across gaza. there have been dozen of
4:04 pm
airstrikes and attacks into gaza. and hamas is trying to say, we're not scared of you. they're protesting of what happened in east jerusalem in solidarity for those who are protesting outside of the home of the 17-year-old who was killed apparently by israeli settlers. >> there were rockets fired in the last couple of hours? >> reporter: yes, what we've got is 15 rockets according to the israeli army fired from here in gaza into israel. most of them fall in open fields. two were intercepted by the iron dome, israel's air defense unit that intercepts these rockets. as you look at some of the younger members much this crowd there is an understanding, an implicit understanding between hamas and israel despite all of these firings. so long as these rockets fall in open fields or are intercepted
4:05 pm
by the iron dome most of the attacks will be on empty training grounds used by anti-israeli fighters as well as the site of those rocket attacks. the big concern here and in israel if one of those rockets gets through and god for bid kills some of the people in israel that's when all bets are off, and that's when israel warned that it will really attack gaza again. >> great that you made that point. more generally speaking, what has been the response from both sides, both leaders, to this latest round of violence? >> reporter: again, this is a great example, tony, of the rhetoric not matching the reality. the rhetoric. what do you hear? prime minister benjamin netanyahu saying hamas, hamas will pay. that we'll unleash the gates of hell if they attack. but with that understanding, but that the senior official of the
4:06 pm
army said they have no desire to go into gaza. they don't want a war and they don't want to link the deaths of those three teenagers to gaza. the big question here is will israel decide to escalate despite the fact that up until recently it has not wanted to. >> nick schifrin, thank you. the white house condemned the killing of the palestinian teenager as a despicable act and afternooned th urged at israelis and palestinians to keep the situation from escalat. >> the heinous murder of the palestinian teenager, we send our condolences to his family and the palestinian people. we call on the government of israel and palestinian authority to take all necessary steps to prevent an atmosphere of revenge

4:08 pm
government, that tholed be bluffing. if it ever came to the fall of baghdad itself then the united states would come forward with airstrikes. this is the question i put today just a few hours ago to the press secretary josh earnest. >> the vulnerability of one particular city in iraq is difficult for me to assess. but the reason that i call it an existential threat not only because of the situation on the ground, but because of the broader conflict that is being played out here, that what isil was doing is they're perpetrating terrible acts of violence, but they're also trying to play upon these old sectarian divisions in an effort to pull the country apart. >> reporter: more and more iraqi officials from nouri al-maliki on down are calling with increasing stridency to send
4:09 pm
attract an airstrikes and helicopters. >> reporter: they asked the iraqis to work together, more pressure on them. the question really is--here's is the vice president of the united states calling a power broker in baghdad, even the white house refers to as someone with influence within the iraqi power structure within baghdad. did he or did he not suggest certain individuals to come forward and lead the iraqi government. as you know, tony, they are to choose a president, a speaker and a prime minister before a government can be formed. the white house sharply denies that they're talking about individuals and insisting publicly that that is up to the iraqi people and their elected representatives. >> mike viqueira at the white house. thank you. as mike touched on there the battle in iraq is being fought between factions. this is not a secular government combating religious extremism.

4:11 pm
armed groups pushed iraqi army out of the sunni heartland in article june. but opponents say that it began in anbar. 300,000 people were displaced by the conflict there. around 30,000 of them are now living in the kurdish region of northern iraq. many of theme stay in motels. it has been six months now. and families hearsay that they've already spent most of their savings and will have no choice but to eventually return to anbar. they left because of what they call the indiscriminate and heavy bombardment by the iraqi air force. but that is not the only reason. the men here don't want to reveal their identities because they were serving in the iraqi police force. >> most of the sunnies join the army for salaries. they weren't loyal to the government. they laid down their arms when the government attacked the people. but then they were threatened by
4:12 pm
armed men for collaborating with the state. >> reporter: there was a time when anbar cooperated with the government to rid their province of al-qaeda fighters. years later they say that they regret ever trusting maliki. they say the government didn't stop targeting them and their leadership. today's fault lines are not new, and this family, just like many iraqis fear, reconciliation may be too late. al jazeera. >> residents of a small southern california town say their victory over the federal got government is only temporary. they believe that officials will try to move dozens of undocumented immigrants to a border patrol station once day after they forced a caravan of buses to turn back. >> reporter: with their signs held high protesters swarmed the street bringing the buses to a standstill. the buses carrying undocumented central american families were headed to an u.s. border patrol
4:13 pm

surge of crossing the border. when it comes to the kids president obama vowed this week to take executive action. >> we can't wait for congress. >> reporter: as for the overall issue of immigration, obama said he can only do so much on his own. >> whatever we do administratively is not going to be sufficient to solve a broken immigration system. >> reporter: al jazeera. >> coming up at 4:30 we'll take a closer look at this issue when we talk with the head of the local border patrol union in murrieta, california. ahmed abu khatalla is accused of masterminding th the 2012 bengahzi attack that killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. a federal judge denied his release. four ministers from russia,

4:17 pm
load but it's the ocean that creates chaos. anywhere from 2,000 to 10,000 containers go overboard in rough seas. the idea that a destroyer is going to sea carrying something as toxic and dangerous as this is a sobering one. this operation is unprecedented. it will take on memories including sulfur mustard which we know as mus mustard gas as well as components of sarin nerve agent. a contained pressurized unit has to heat the chemicals to extreme measures and then the ashes are locked away as hazardous waste.
