5:02 pm
simmonds, who is there. what do we know about what took place, and the area itself? >> well, what's was this, the police say, and said there were two attackers. they have changed that story to one attacker, one went into the bus station, and immediately attacked a soldiers. the soldiers has since died. there were a number of other people also attacked, a total of four police officers and a number of civilians, all taken to hospital, but none, apparently, with life-threatening injuries. now, the next stage of what happened has been subject to conflicting reports. we are told by the police that definitely they opened fire at two people. one was the alleged attacker, who is arab, thought to be palestinian, the other was of eritrean nationality, there is an admission now that that man
5:03 pm
was shot by mistaken identity. and he is critically ill in hospital. the palestinian has died. now, we have a total of two dead, and a number injured and complete panic in the ear, and questions in beersheba about why this man was able to get into a very busy public transport location, when very stringent security regulations have been passed a number of days ago by the israeli prime minister insisting that army, the soldiers should support security in all public places involving public transport, riding on trains and buses and trams, so this situation is brisbanen and
5:04 pm
sending a shutter through the palestinians and people alike. despite calls for calm. the incident shows no signs of abating. any hope for international involved, a resolution to bring the two parties together. >> well, people can hope. there's no solid information stacked on the stable to suggest there could be a breakthrough. the major issue is the al-aqsa compound, known as temple mount. binyamin netanyahu made it clear before his cabinet meeting on sunday that he was not prepared to negotiate with a palestinian, was not prepared to listen to calls from france to use international observers to see there was no change by the way
5:05 pm
things have been at al-aqsa compound. and this is an area in the heart of things. we are seeing the u.s. secretary of state move towards talks of binyamin netanyahu in germany, which is likely to be wednesday or thursday. he confirmed in paris that he would be having that meeting and he would meet mahmoud abbas, and king abdullah of jordan, somewhere in the middle east, but would not confirm where, there has been a lot of suggestions from several quarters and sources telling al jazeera, that there should be a meeting attempts to get a meeting at some stage recollects but there's no confirmation of this, there's no solid suggestion that that will take
5:06 pm
place at that location. certainly that was said by the u.s. secretary of state. they'll be bilateral, it's thau. there's not any sum. >> it will be too far-fetched to think there would be any prerequisite. the issue is the temple mount and al-aqsa mosque compound. that seems to be a key area were there could be an easing of tensions in israel. it is a long shot. it's a long shot to expect there'll be progress. john kerry indicated on a number of occasions that he is not that optimistic. >> thank you. andrew simmonds live in of the west jerusalem. >> the latest attack happened as israel's cabinet improved security measures.
5:07 pm
it's expanding the stop and frisk powers, and banning labour from schools in four cities. as andrew simmonds mentioned there, u.s. secretary of state john kerry is due to meet the israeli prime minister in germany. kerry is planning to sit with mahmoud abbas, likely to take place in jordan, and he'll talk to both about ending the violence, which continues, despite israel deploying extra police and soldiers, mike hanna reports from west jerusalem. >> reporter: a regular meeting of the israeli cabinet amidst extraordinary crisis much the prime minister denying accusations that his country is attempting to change arrangements regarding access to temple mount, the al-aqsa come pound. all of israel is alone, the
5:08 pm
reason the status quo has been violated. we didn't change anything. the orders of prayer the visiting rights have not changed. >> palestinians are adamant israeli attempts is the route cause of the conflict. >> translation: we will not lose control of al-aqsa, and destroying it while the nation is sleeping. >> reporter: amidst the extreme tension a military ceremony in tela veef. the guest of honour, the joint chiefs of staff. the general here to discuss resumptions of talks about defense aid which israel suspended against the iran nuclear deal, signalling a fractious relationship. and is evidence that the u.s.
5:09 pm
will conduct business as usual with the right wing of israeli governments. here in israel's biggest mass circumstance u sayings newspaper, the headline ready -- circulation, the headline ready to draw. this is a prime minister that took his gun out of the safe and is burying it all the time. the settler movement dominates the government. along with hardline religious nationalists. this is not a body likely to deviate from extreme response to mounting protests. there's been clashes across the west bank. we have been following from ramallah. >> the situation across the occupied west bank is tense. sunday we saw clashes break out in some cities. in hebron, the flashpoint
5:10 pm
location on a normal day when there is no unrest, it's sensitive and tense because of the close proximity with which israeli settlers live within the city. now, palestinians have been saying that they are worried over the past two days with news of the alleged knife attacks that happened in the cities in the occupied west bank. because of the attacks they are afraid israel may pose a restriction on cities in the west bank. all the clashes and tension erupted when palestinians say israel provoked the situation at the al-aqsa mosque compound. the israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu maintained that the status quo at the compound is not going to change. palestinians do not believe that. when it comes to the palestinian government, the stance is that palestinians have a right to be angry and protest so long as it is done peacefully.
5:11 pm
>> more on the attack at the bus station in beersheba, witnesses describe their fear following this incident and others. >> translation: do i need to live in a world where i'm afraid to leave home to go to college studies or shopping, everything is frightening, i want the police to take more action. >> joining me from skype via oxford is an analyst at online news site middle east eye. thank you for speaking to us. if i can start by asking about the implications of the latest attack in beersheba, taking place at a bus station in the center of town, despite a widespread military and police presence, areas that have been courtoned off. can you start by giving your assessment of what took place and how it was able to happen? >> what has taken place is
5:12 pm
surprising, not just in the nature of the violence that has taken police, but in the context of wider security issues going back over a decade. you and your viewers may remember the issues that were dominant 10 years during the second intifada when there were suicide bombings in israel. the israeli beefed up security, foremost by building a wall separating israel from west bank proper, and that stopped a deal of attacks. we haven't witnessed a serious number of incidents, what occurred tonight is interesting, and clearly is a breach of israeli security, and, of course, it begs the question as to whether this was a lone wolf attack in occupied east jerusalem and the occupied west bank or whether it was organized by militant organizations.
5:13 pm
>> how difficult is it going to be to prevent attacks staged by individuals as we have seen so far, who don't necessarily have the operational support of one group or organization? >> well clearly in areas where there's oo critical mass of news, in the occupied west bank that will be difficult. in areas of israel proper, in beersheba today, it's not too hard. israeli security is formidable and is difficult for palestinians acting in a lone capacity to stage attacks. if this was a lone wolf attack it would be interesting, and i suspect worrying for israeli security. it's not entirely unprecedented. there were a couple of incidents north of tel aviv a few days ago when a couple of israelis were
5:14 pm
likely wounded. in any case, it's a worrying development for israeli security agencies. >> so, mike, they change the way in which they responded so far in the aftermath of the attack in beersheba. >> they can only beef up security starting from a high point. of course, there is ramping up - it has the consequence of increasing frustration. israel has a draconian security measure with the checkpoint and tightly controlled access. it has the consequence of ramping up frustration alienation, which is at the heart of the latest bout you have violence thank you very much. good to get your thoughts on
5:15 pm
this story. an analyst in security and terrorism. we have more to come for you on the al jazeera newshour from london. we'll bring you a special report on african refugees falling victim to people smugglers in mozambique. changing time in canada as the indigenous population is told to embrace a national election. and in sport, who is playing who - teams getting a final chance to qualify for europe's football championships. now, the nuclear agreement between iran and world powers is coming in effect. tehran begins the biggest nuclear dismantlement history. as andy gallagher reports there are significant challenges ahead. >> reporter: it took years of complex and fiddle
5:16 pm
negotiation -- fitful negotiations between iran and a world power known as p5+1 to put forward a deal based on verification, not trust. the landmark nuclear agreement means iran has to sharply curtail its nuclear programme, a move that will reduce capability of developing nuclear weapons. in july, when the agreement was reached, u.s. secretary of state john kerry says it was a deal worth fighting for. >> it is a step away from conflict and towards the possibility of peace. >> in iran, engineers must begin the biggest nuclear dismantlement history, involving the moth balling and shipping of fuel out of the country. all of which authorities say will be done by the end of november. iran is key that sanctions are eased, but the deal has plenty of vocal critics. >> the deal doesn't make peace more likely, fuelling iran's
5:17 pm
aggression with billions in sanctions relief, it makes war more likely. >> the next few weeks iran implements an unpopular agreement. it may be difficult. intrusive inspections will be key. critics warn of a potential for cheating and disagreements. >> it does not fully resolve the wide range of the issues. we'll have to continue to put pressure on them through the international community. >> reporter: recent footage appears to show underground tunnels packed with missiles and launches have not helped to ease concerns. they were released day after a long-range missile was breached. >> for the powers involvement in the disagreement, there's a great deal at stake. that is true for president obama, his administration
5:18 pm
brokering a deal few thought possible. the next due weeks may shape his policy more than anything else. >> joining me is an iran researcher at the university of london. thank you for coming in. the iran nuclear agreement moved into a new face according to u.s. officials. what does iran need to do now to hold up its side of the bargain. >> both sides are taking measures to implement a team. it will not be implemented until implementation day. what they'll do is disconnect centrifuges, start a decommission, and the core of the reactor, other measures have been great on as part of a joint plan of action, and the europeans have started to take measures. although they are not legally in effect right now, they are taking symbolical measures that
5:19 pm
iran will have made the tech call measures. the sanctions will be lifted. >> we know businesses are businesses, and officials have been making trips to iran to, you know, strengthen that economic relationship in the months to come. how long could this process of dismantling, pulling apart the components of the iran nuclear programme take, could there be unforeseen problems with that. >> the difference of the iran and the u.s. in terms of commitment is iran has physical work to do. it has to go below ground and disconnect the machines, the reactor. depending on estimates. it may take between 60 and 90 days. iranians say they can do it faster. that's been disputed. they'll have to bait and see. all sides have an incidentive to -- incentive to move faster.
5:20 pm
>> iran has an incentive. they'd like to get it done before the end of the year. >> for the irani presidency, it would be important because they have elections to under take. >> there has been oppositions on both sides, republicans, and israelis internationally. some concern and point of contention around the deal. could that slow the process of dismantling the nuclear process down, particularly, maybe concerns around monitoring issues? >> i think there are mechanisms in place to resolve disputes that may arise as part of the agreement. the so-called joint commission which iran is a member. i think that has been thought of before. in terms of domestic opposition to the deal. we have passed that point. the deal has been adapted.
5:21 pm
and that's what it meant, the significance of today. we have the centrifuges in operation. they have not been lifted, they have been abducted. it's the first step of a long journey. >> despite the opt nix around the nuclear deal seen as a landmark deal, the tone of the relationship shifted in recent months as russia has deepened its involved in syria and iran, too, is more explicit about its actions in syria. it's les likely that the iran nuclear deal could be broadened to other parts of policy, if you like. in relation to the united states, there's many sensitivityies within iran. working with the region, while it's done in the past and done with iraq, it's far more different than working with the
5:22 pm
europeans. the prime minister was in tehran the other day to promote the regional engagement. i think europeans have strong incentive to engage with iran on that point. the regional crisis are no longer affecting the region, they are affecting europe. germany is impacting the refugees, it's a strong incentive to engage with iran. now, in erms it of what is happening with the region, in terms of cooperation with united states, it's very much part of the dynamics between them and saudi arabia. the united states has pre-existing commitments inhibiting the interaction many would like to see. >> thank you very much for sharing your analysis with us. >> well, we touched on it. germany offered turkey support to speed up a bid to join the european union, if ankara helps to deal with the crisis on the
5:23 pm
contine continent. german chancellor angela merkel has been holding talks in turkey. >> reporter: germany's chancellor angela merkel is in istanbul looking for help, asking the turkish government to stem the flow of refugees coming to europe. >> we have used the crisis we are experiencing to a disorderly or uncontrolled movement, to great closer cooperation between many units. specifically, the e.u. wants turkey to increase coast guard patrols and give syrians work permits. in return, turkey is offered $3 billion and a revival of e.u. talks. it's hard to fulfil. it is has 2,000 miles of
5:24 pm
coastline along the aegean and strong opposition to allowing syrians to work. there's no commitment from turkey. >> unfortunately, turkey was left by the international community in terms of burden sharing. there's a better approach. the issue of sharing, going forward is important. >> they said that if turks are given visa free access, turkey will take back failed asylum seekers from europe. >> leaders agreed that only a resolution to the conflict in syria would resolve the crisis. turkey wants a safe zone in northern syria, it seems more unlikely with russia's involvement in syria's civil war well, thousands of refugees arriving in slovenia from croatia, many forced to take a new route after hungry closed
5:25 pm
its border on friday. here is emma haywood. >> some said they've been waiting through the night to cross. hundreds of men, women and children stuck on the serbian side of the border with croatia, they were allowed to pass, taking the next step in a journey across controlled borders in europe. . >> what is bad is the situation that is very crowded, and they have been waiting for many hours, they are exhausted. they have not enough water, supply or information. >> reporter: those a few days ahead of them were arriving in slovenia. late at night and monitored closely by the police. slovenia is a country of 2 million people is struggling to cope with the high numbers of refugees arriving. many are taking the route because of hungry's decision to
5:26 pm
seal the borders, claiming the e.u. for failing to manage the refugee crisis, as winter steps in, concerns are mounting at how people with little or nothing at all will cope. >> winter is here, numbers have not gone down. more desperate people on the move. the winter adds to the suffering. what we need is a mechanism that we are able to help them from one border to another. >> one of the founding goals of the e.u. was to build a common future. so far though the idea of a united strategy to deal with the crisis in europe seems a long way off still ahead for you on al jazeera. thousands are displaced as a powerful typhoon sweeps into the philippines. we'll tell you how guatemala's
