Tear gas is deployed in clashes on the Gaza-Israel border amid massive anti-Israel protests, including by the families of imprisoned Palestinians. A local journalist working for RT is also tear-gassed -  she told us she's now ok, and we'll go live to her later in the programme for all the updates from the scene. As more doubts are raised over videos purporting to show the aftermath of an alleged chemical attack in Syria's Douma an RT crew visits places seen in the footage and speaks to eyewitnesses. The founder of the infamous Blackwater security group has reportedly been contacted by Gulf officials, to help create a so-callled 'Arab force' in Syria - and replace US troops after their withdrawal.
