getting more people with disabilities into. the first israel says it shot down a syrian jet that it claims infiltrated its a space but the government in damascus says the sukhoi fighter jet was flying in syrian air space let's go live now to our correspondent stephanie decker she's in israeli occupied golan heights and stephanie what can we confirm about this incident. well these really army has just confirmed to us that the jet has indeed gone down in the southern golden heights the syrian side of the golan heights which is where we are this area has been actively of an active assault carried out by the syrian government and russian jets we've seen both russian jets and syrian jets in the sky over the last couple of days the what the army is saying
8:06 pm
is that this syrian sukhoi jet entered around two kilometers into israeli airspace that it was monitored and then two patriot missiles were fired at it and we were a little further north when this happened in command when sirens went off in that area we then saw a field ablaze we went down to that field very soon after we heard the news of the jet having been downed and then after we were there a couple of israeli soldiers turned up they had a map they had by not killers trying to figure out what was burning there it certainly wasn't the play time it wasn't sure they said they were looking for it as well and that just gives you an indication of how quickly things move here but now also sputnik which is the russian news agency there saying that one of the pilots has died and the fate of the second remains unknown and we all becoming more and more used to these periodic interventions being made by israel into the syrian civil war. yes the last time the israelis targeted
8:07 pm
a syrian jet with a patriot missile was in two thousand and fourteen that jet. apparently was heading back into syria when it got shot and the two pilots managed to eject other than that israel's involvement in syria is very clear in the sense that its concern is iran and iranian backed troops and most importantly weapons shipments to hezbollah so these are targets that it has struck it never really confirms them but you know it is something that the israeli government says if they know of a weapon shipment or any threat posed to israel from iran it will take action so martina just indicates the international specter of this war also we had the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov here yesterday talking with the israelis particular about this border this golan heights border israel wants no iranian troops wants no iranian backed militias anywhere near it the russians are now offering them to be hundred kilometers away these raids are saying that's not good
8:08 pm
enough they want iranian forces out of syria iran is saying they're going to stake said there at the invitation of syria so just shows you the international dimensions of this war that is very very complicated indeed seventy deca live in occupied golan heights electricity supplies of palestinians who are living in gaza has to be cut still further from a sales a day to just six the sole power station on the ship can't get enough fuel to maintain its current output the amount of fuel entering gaza has been greatly reduced since thursday when israel imposed restrictions on imports coming through the. crossing the israeli defense minister has now said the crossing will be partially reopened in the coming hours that has more from the crossing. so trucks now have started taking this vital fuel this this oil this petrol and this cooking gas from the israeli side they the trucks arrive from gaza they fill
8:09 pm
up and then go back across the border there's great relief here in gaza there was a a press statement released by the palestinian healthful thora to the smalling saying that unless this fuel starts to be delivered immediately then health services were risk of actually having to be closed down and we understand that the power station is still not operating that stopped yesterday there were only one of full turbines that were operating in that power station before that closure and that's a different issue the power station does not rely on oil from this border it's been relying on it supplied from egypt thomas says it simply does not have enough money to pay for that vital fuel for the power station is also the issues of the amount of money that people simply have in their pockets to pay their electricity bills and this will stay in the big political rift between hamas and fatah that is going on now since hamas took power here in two thousand and seven for the last year and
8:10 pm
a half the pollen is the dominated palestinian authority has not paid the salaries for thousands of civil servants here and hamas says this is a as a result of that that they call their electricity bills so the gas the oil for the power station cannot be pulled but as i say there is a sense of temporary relief here now that they saw oil gas and this this cooking gas is being transported into gaza but of course so much depends on maintaining this cease fire between hamas and israel after what can only be described as the largest escalation of violence of the last couple of weeks since the two thousand and fourteen war. wildfires have killed at least sixty people near the greek capital athens strong winds are whipping up the flames that have destroyed many homes and disrupted transport links the government declared a state of emergency in two areas jona home reports. with ferocious
