3:10 pm
green meant to put aside the rest for her to have an agreement that we would know the policy of taxes and topple the factions hamas and fatah in order to achieve. that dream to put an end to the occupation and to have. defended that sovereign state with its residents as the capital of the state. that lacked to say again that the. road this time is quite distinguished compared to previous times gyptian experience. and the egyptian. is the country that takes care of national security including this cut of the palestinian people. role. played by. the gyptian

3:12 pm
of the rift and we go hand in hand with international partnership between all of the components of the palestinian people and now i'll give the floor to my colleagues. in the name of the law i must look at the russian it. ok this is better in the name of the law the most for a look at passionate. praise. his promise at the very beginning thank you. for giving us the hope the trust to be able. to help our people. nation with the efforts that we have within. the national.
3:13 pm
unity. and then we thank the great palestinian people the great palestinian people who showed us a lot of patience and still patient and still have in the whole the strength. and. have hopes achieved the targets achieved. and. we need also to praise and i repeat that. phrase the sions as said by my brother as with the egyptians sorting from his axis in the president the government and the brothers in the. efforts they have exerted in order to reach that moment we repeat and again and again that we in safe hands we are safe.
3:14 pm
and we feel good future when needed is with we are confident that. is stable and will never change and is always for the sake of the palestinians for the rights of the palestinian people for the targets and hopes and the mission of the palestinians yes. we know that this is the there is the palestinian issue is the egyptians and we need to reach. this is a press conference recorded. in cairo but only being transmitted for the first time between palestinian factions hamas and fatah you seem to have come to some agreement in terms of national unity there speaking is how much this chief negotiator the son was shortly before that we saw and heard as a man who's fighters seen the broker there as well as bringing our correspondent in ramallah howry force it has been listening in we are waiting for the detail as
3:15 pm
you say harry or as we say the devil is in the detail what have we heard in terms of the breakthrough that these two groups have managed to make. you know we still haven't got the entire text of this agreement the the full dotting of i's and crossing of t.'s in terms of exactly what has been agreed to but you could hear being referred to in the partial rebroadcast of the news of the statement from the two sides that the sorts of things that we've been hearing earlier in the day do indeed seem to be in this agreement you heard talking about the situation on the border of the egyptian gaza border talking about how the palestinian authority would act with the hamas security that has been so far providing the border crossings and he praised them for having increased security as
3:16 pm
per the deal independent deal with egypt saying that the full situation there would be changed along the lines of this agreement by november the first he himself using the phrase devil in the details saying that there are obviously time lines and targets that need to be met in order to prove that this this this reconciliation is going forward in that the new administration that has been since last week retaking power in gaza that it does according to some sort of metrics that are being input that are being imposed by this nascent agreement he also talked about the egyptian role the fact that egyptian intelligence had been so key in all this in have been different in its approach from previous and you have to say failed attempts in twenty eleven and since then to try to breach this divide to bridge this divide and you heard from sorry as well of hamas also thanking the egyptians saying that we are in safe hands and the palestinian issue is the egyptian issue apart from the
3:17 pm
border crossings we understand that there are agreements over the internal security of gaza how it is policed and also trying to merge these two separate groups. and officials that we have now because hamas officials of the last ten years been brought in to take over from the p.a. officials who've been sitting at home because of the hamas takeover in two thousand and seven so that's always been one of the key stumbling blocks how to satisfy these two separate groups of employees tens of thousands of them and make sure that they as many of them as possible have jobs and those who lose jobs do so in a way which doesn't hurt them too much financially doesn't hurt the prospects of the. individual sponsors in terms of hamas and fatah so that's that's the bare bones of the agreement that we have so far obviously other issues most notably the fate of hamas is military wing so far we haven't heard very much about it it will
3:18 pm
come back to us and when we get more details from that prerecorded press conference coming out of cairo joining me here in studio is sure he's a senior lecturer at the university of exeter in the united kingdom joins me here on set in doha lots of praise for the egyptians from both sides. we've been in this position before where we've seen fatah and have a sit together yes we've sorted out our differences days weeks months later it all falls apart so these are still very tentative steps that are not they are we have been there ten years over ten years ago in two thousand and six march two thousand and six when there was a unity government back then and there was changes in the platforms of both sides and there have been there before because egypt has been negotiating under the general intelligence but at this on that almost a man between south and seven onwards with. you consultation between them it didn't work out and the problem here is that there are structural issues there are issues
3:19 pm
that has to do with the peace deal with israel issues has to do with statehood that is seen as statehood is that has to do with the arms. in particular i think the option for the egyptians and that has to dismantle the the on. wing of hamas hamas does not see this as viable we have a similar case in lebanon hezbollah arms have been subject to discussion for the last seventeen years since two thousand onward since the israeli withdrawal the case in gaza is likely to stay in such a situation we haven't seen the full text of the agreement yet so how problematic is that hamas in the gaza strip the al qassam brigade. on one end hamas sees this as its safety net as it's get in there is no guarantee from what guarantee you from exclusion repression the dismantling of the organization basically the fate of morsi government in egypt you know and the muslim brothers and. so it's kind of it's hard force this is on one end on the other end it's also it's getting to
3:20 pm
against israel sees it as its protection against israel not the said against education and other palestinian factions so that's on and on the other end. egypt has it as a terrorist organization and egypt believes that it's responsible to what's happening in sinai are partly responsible at least although that has changed since that he conservation so now official media toned down the accusations that the assembly get involved in sinai but at the same time i don't think this is the perspective of most of the security agencies and as you suggest you know ten years is a long time certainly in a place this is fractious as in the west bank and the dynamics of the politics of change not just in israel but in egypt and of course on the ground how much earlier this year changed its stance not completely but it changed its stance in such a way that we've got to a position today that was in may talking about statehood talking about the nine
3:21 pm
hundred sixty seven borders but not mentioning israel in the way they want to approach the potential for a long term peace how important was that change in position by hamas to where we are now where they've been able to deal and negotiate not just with but. more broadly really with an egypt that was quite antagonistic towards it is very important and will be very critical for a deescalation in many ways but this is not new again this has been going through a process of transformation since almost one thousand nine hundred nine. one thousand nine hundred sixty seven borders has been highlighted by its founder. back before he dies and the issue that has to do with for example elections on that occupation was also highlighted before and hamas running elections in the end. the issue of taking up arms against israel as the only legitimate means that was in the one thousand nine hundred that was pushed aside to mean so it's just one of those means that you can resist israel with so there has been
3:22 pm
a process of transformation going on within hamas the problem is that you can face spoilers that one and you know we don't know how israel is going to perceive the reconciliation there's a whole you know studies about spoilers in these kind of thing stephen steadman and somehow mood was very good in and lighting this and this may happen in such case you know this may happen if you find spoiling. isis in sinai voiding all the factions within hamas within. that doesn't see that a consolation in their favor could spoil so we have a situation is a idea certainly as well as the detail for the moment of thank you for joining us on such. so the day's other news now intentions are growing between kurdish authorities and the iraqi government following last month's controversial secession referendum baghdad has denied claims by the kurdish regional government that it plans a major attack on the kurds cook region the care gee says it fears iraqi government

way can't count on firefighters to save them there's always a lag time in these fires between the time that the fire starts and the time that they can get people out of the way getting resources in to start to protect against it and it's in that lag time that people in that lag time that a lot of the bad things happen a new approach in how people should deal with nature along with changes in planning and building design could help keep things from going from bad to worse robert oulds zero los angeles. a volcano in southwest japan has erupted for the first time in six as shimoda a volcano has been spewing ash and space almost two kilometers into the sky is falling at least full cities and towns and museums prefecture school students have been told to wear helmets some must sell their way to and from school and villages near the volcano. a victim of last month's smash last vegas music
