life lessons iraqi students are back in the classroom, but catching up on lost schoolwork isn't the only challenge ethiopia's prime minister has told parliament that federal forces of not killed a single civilian during the 3 week long conflict in the degree region. and insists that the army will not destroy the regional capital. mackellar after having captured it on the weekend. that's just to ground forces, say that they're still facing federal soldiers near the kelly. hundreds have been killed and thousands, forced to flee to neighboring sudan that another in person thought to get them and they're not. the most important, every target has been signed and approved. the house can see that every missile launched is backed by a signature of authority. 99 percent of them hit their targets and 99 percent of
2:02 pm
them didn't have collateral. no country's army can show this kind of performance. our army is disciplined and victorious. but luckily, the toughest going to be said, you will destroy mckelway and so on. may kill a is ours, it was built with our own resources, we are not going to destroy it, not even a single person was affected by the operation. malcolm webb is following events in ethiopia from nairobi. he's with us now malcolm. what are we to make of the prime minister's claims? will prime minister as he had told, members of parliament that the government side didn't kill a single civilian? this is contradicted by the team p.l.s. leader's account. they say that civilian casualties have been high and they say that civilians were targeted in government airstrikes, something that the government side denies. we also heard from the red cross in macquarie, that's the regional capital, the city of about half
2:03 pm
a 1000000 people. they say that about 80 percent of the people in hospitals there have trauma injuries or they have, they haven't said how those injuries have been sustained. but they will say said that there's a serious shortage of essential medical supplies and a shortage of body bags. so who to believe the prime minister or the t p.l.f.? how can we ascertain what is actually galling mcalary? who for weeks the internet, the phone lines are being cut off and there's also the area is heavily restricted to be no access for journalists. very little access for humanitarian workers and these frequent contradicting claims and counterclaims from both sides to israel, difficult to verify what's actually going on. the government side said that since they took the city mackay on saturday that they've been in control of the whole region. but just a short while ago, the t.p.s. leader said that they're still fighting on all fronts. and they called on the
2:04 pm
government troops to pull out of the grey region. but without more access for humanitarian, simple journalists, it's very difficult to verify the claims that either side of making al-jazeera is malcolm web reporting live from nairobi, malcolm many thanks. indeed, iran's top nuclear scientist is being buried following his assassination on friday . a large funeral service has been held in the capital tehran on a ring. mawson fuckers outta iran's leaders are blaming israel for the killing and avowed to retaliate. hanging out at genoa handed, we are all gathered here next to one another before the body of our beloved martyr and valid to him that we will be more cohesive, more result, and our determination to continue down your path will be stronger. we will continue down the path of advancement of this nation with greater speed and strength. all the head of iran's top national security body says of that been several assassination attempts on our result as life over the past 20 years. and the
2:05 pm
security around him have been bolstered, keep our intelligence services have the information that he was a target and even knew that on the same spot he was killed. an attempt was going to be made against him. his protection was intensified. however, this time, any utilized a completely new professional and sophisticated method, and all fortunately succeeded after 20 years and reached its goal. al-jazeera, as i said, beggars live for us in tehran will come to the funeral itself in just a moment, but 1st, tell us more about these, these continuing conflicting accounts about how he was assassinated. well, the secretary of the supreme national security council there, he's saying that he was bolstered and they weren't expecting such a sophisticated attack and they're blaming the majority in their whole is a terrorist organizations are considered a terrorist organization here,
2:06 pm
but also israel. now what we're hearing is that there was a remote controlled machine gun in, in this pickup truck that fights some shots. there was hit as well as his bodyguard, and then the truck blew up. and the issue is not too far after not long after the incident state t.v. showed a series of interviews with eyewitnesses that said that they had seen assailants. and some of the semi official news agencies here also said that there were assailants killed or involved in the attack. and now we're hearing there's no assailants. and this was a sophisticated attack. and this could be because comments are not official investigation. the intelligence ministry is still carrying out its official investigation. it could be deliberate in an attempt to actually catch some of the perpetrator or perpetrators that may still be in the, in the country. but fars news agency, which is linked to the revolutionary guard,
2:07 pm
they've also given an account and again saying that there's no assailants. so there are conflicting reports. a lot of it's been brought out of because there's been a lot of questions. how and why did this happen? if you, on one hand you're saying security has been bolstered, then how was it that he was killed if you know that there's been attempts on his lives for the last 20 years, and he's your top nuclear scientists, then how did this happen? so it is very embarrassing to a certain extent for the security apparatus inside the country and people are looking for answers. and as far as today's funeral is concerned, a big funeral, but not perhaps as passionate as it might have been. had it not been for covert restrictions. yes, because of the covert restrictions, there was a limited number of people,, his family and some high ranking officials were the head of the i.r.g.c., the revolutionary guard, and also the goods force and the head of iran's atomic energy agency. and there
2:08 pm
were a number of speeches given, and the defense minister actually said that one of the responses by iran to this assassination is that the budget for the department for innovation and research research has been doubled. that was the department that most of the fuckers are they headed up. so that's one of the 1st responses. they also, that there will be some sort of retaliation. iran is, there's a split within the political factions within the country about what the response should be. on one hand, you have the reformists supporting president hassan rouhani that want to wait until president elect joe biden gets into office, and the united states possibly rejoin. that's the 2015 nuclear deal and if sanctions that would be seen as a victory by the reformists. but the conservatives have put forward a statement in parliament saying that iran should stop i.a.e.a. inspectors inspecting nuclear sites inside the country. an increase in richmond to 20 percent, essentially leaving the 2050 nuclear deal. and that's the debate that's taking
2:09 pm
place currently. while the world powers are asking for restraint. iran is very angry because not many countries have actually come back to actually condemn what iran sees as a terrorist act. and that's really angered the iranians. they're looking for a stronger condemnation and divides the reef has criticized western powers for is not condemning was asking iran to show restraint reporting live from tehran. i suppose. the thanks indeed indeed, and blocking roads in a protest against new laws or refusing to move to a government designated venue have been camping on major highways near the capital new delhi. it's almost say they're open to talks with the government. as long as there are no preconditions, they say that the new laws will hurt crop prices and livelihoods reports now from new delhi, thousands of farmers remain camped out on key border crossings, heading into the indian capital at the moment. they are in 3 border crossings and
2:10 pm
we've heard from farmers unions who are saying that they are planning on blocking by border crossings. they have rejected the offer of the home minister for immediate talks because they've refused to go to those grounds on the outskirts of the capital. they are planning to cause as much disruption as possible to traffic by blocking highways until the government either repealed or offers to talk to them with no conditions. and we are expecting more farmers to join those who have already created temporary settlements on these highways. they have converted hundreds of their vehicles into temporary homes that they're staying in. and while most of the farmers so far have been from the states off punjab and haryana, we're seeing more and more farmers coming from the states of and that are cotton. and we're expecting celebrations today and that is because most of the farmers so far from the state of punjab and they are predominantly from the sick religion and
2:11 pm
today is the birthday of the founder of the 6 religion. good in our nic. we had meetings last night between the president of the country's ruling bought at the party, along with the defense minister, the home minister and the agriculture minister too. and that gives you an idea of just how serious a challenge these protests are to the government or the biggest protests that we have seen this year. and we're way to hear what if anything, will come out of those meetings. we're going to weather update next here on al-jazeera. then we'll tell you why more deaths from the leiria in sub-saharan africa are expected to exceed those from covert. 19 this year.

2:16 pm
of this post it despite it diminishes them in the world's advise or might couple of points about this. the strider is seeking an apology from the ministry of foreign of is from the chinese government for this out, right. as promised, we are also seeking its removal immediately and have also contacted twitter to take it down immediately. life out of beijing of 0. training you is therefore a katrina, what's been the chinese response to that? well, foreign ministry spokeswoman quaternion responded today on monday to the prime minister's trillian prime minister's statement that we just heard and she appeared quite flippant and dismissive of his comments. now this whole incident started on monday morning, about 10 am beijing time when her colleague, john of the jen, posted a tweet, including an image by
2:17 pm
a self described chinese patriotic artist. and it was quite inflammatory depicting and australian soldier holding the knife, a knife to the neck of an afghan baby. and that prompted the very strongly worded statement that we just heard from scott morrison. now, beijing has not backed down whatsoever on this tweet. contrary on the contrary, quote union has actually defended her colleague jen. and in the press conference today, she threw the blame back at the australian government saying that they should be more critical of the australian government's response to the actions of the soldiers in afghanistan. and just for context, jelly gen has for a few days now, been commenting on the actions of the israeli and soldiers and highlighting it as what he described as so-called double standards when it comes to the western media and western governments. when it comes to human rights issues. so let's just take a listen to what quaternion had to say on the matter earlier on monday. even though it's around our national feel ashamed,
2:18 pm
you mentioned the prime minister scott morrison says china should feel ashamed. is it not these jillion government's decision to send troops to afghanistan? since the soldiers have committed such atrocious crimes? shouldn't you still your government feel ashamed for their soldiers killing innocent civilians in afghanistan? the relationship between china and australia has been destroying them for months now. this is a new low that's right, and it really seemed to take a nosedive earlier this year when the astronomy in government led calls for an independent inquiry into the origin of the core of a $1000.00 virus in china. and that infuriated beijing. and since then, we've seen china month after month slapped heavy duties on australian exports to china, including on australian wine beef and barley, and destroying government has called these new duties, devastating to australia and produces, saying that they are unjustified and politically motivated. given that is also
2:19 pm
reportedly considering taking a case to the w.t. or against china because of these new duties and to add insult to injury. the chinese government is reportedly not taking calls from their strained counterparts when they're requesting meetings to talk about this issue. now the chinese government and so many chinese state media have been quite hawkish when it's come to the australian government. and the chinese embassy industry earlier this month released a list of 14 grievances against the israeli government, including a stray, is blocking of wall ways. 5 g. networks in australia and complains that australia has made against a legit human rights abuses in shin john and china has said that it's up to a strictly a to mend these strange ties. but a struggle for their part has said that they will not change their policy position . so it's difficult to see how this relationship can improve in the near future. the treaty you're reporting live from bridging the treaty many thanks,

2:21 pm
especially on the part of saudi arabia and the u.a.e. . waking out this at this station to see how dealing with biden will change the dynamics of mediation this crisis. there has always been an attempt by the trump administration to conduct mediation through kuwait on a continuous basis. but what changed in the past couple of years was a move towards more compartment in crisis through talking, especially about one that and then by go in and not the other aspects of this conflict. and on the other hand, we can see very clearly that saudi arabia is no more open to discussing with the, u.s. a lot of issues of disagreement in the region, especially with the constant bombardment of issues coming in to, to the region that i, i also believe that this is
2:22 pm
a last minute attempt by jump at mr. asian. that doesn't really have to work only the only way it could actually come with that ocean is if there was a decision by the wayside, maybe they would like to end this before that. the biden administration, so it doesn't become an issue. and then dealing with that administration, when the time comes, the top infectious diseases expert in the u.s. has warned americans to brace for some of corona virus infections over the holiday season. the country reported more than 150000 cases on saturday, as millions of people visited family for thanksgiving. dr anthony fauci says that it's an omen a strengthened ahead of people traveling of a christmas and the new year. so what we ask people to do is to at least stop for a moment and do what i call the risk benefit assessment of what you want to do in
