8:17 pm
returning to beirut soon and is considering taking back his resignation hariri made the comments in an interview in riyadh on the sunday following that announcement of his resignation the instability in lebanon has sparked fears of a wider conflict with israel paying especially close attention as hari forces reports from west jerusalem. israeli troops rehearse another war with hezbollah these exercises the largest in one thousand years took place in september two months on some are wondering whether lebanon's political crisis might set the stage for the real thing this causes are going to have great concerns over the developments in the middle east the fact that the prime minister has fled to another country obviously looked destabilization in lebanon and there were already several areas of instability behind those fears and the extraordinary events of the last ten days which have seen the lebanese prime minister side hariri summoned to saudi arabia and announce his resignation and the leader of hezbollah accuse the saudis of declaring war the israeli media have been full of speculation about the
8:18 pm
intentions of the saudi crown prince mohammed bin simon one theory is that he's trying to destabilize lebanon in order to spark a war in which israel would defeat hezbollah and deal a blow to their common enemy iran even if that theory were correct there's little sense among analysts here that israel would at the moment be willing to play along it will certainly be an enormous test at an early stage of the recent warming in relations between saudi arabia and israel. not least because since the last lebanon war in two thousand and six hezbollah's soldiers have been battle hardened in syria and its missile arsenal has swelled in size range and destructive power on the israeli side defense minister avigdor lieberman has repeatedly this year promised that in any future conflict israel would seek a decisive clear victory all of which would risk a largescale conflict than eleven years ago just because both sides have incentives not to go to war doesn't mean they're not going to go to war all it takes is one
8:19 pm
miscalculation of you know from one side that the other responds to and then there's a response to the response and back and forth and all of a sudden you're fighting a war that you didn't want i really gave a t.v. interview on sunday raising the prospect of his return to lebanon and even to office if he's uneasy partners in power hezbollah stopped intervening in the war in yemen is a sign at least of a potential deescalation in a crisis being watched intently from israel are a force that al-jazeera west jerusalem. i saw fighters have recaptured the city of albo kemal close to the border with iraq just a few days after the government and its allies took control of it is thought i still fighters have been hiding inside tunnels in the heart of the city which was ice a last stronghold inside syria airstrikes on a market town in a rebel held town in northern syria are reported to have killed at least twenty one people the syrian observatory for human rights says three strikes hit the countryside town of that. was not yet clear who is responsible for the strikes.
8:20 pm
well the war in syria is expect to be high on the agenda in the russian city of sochi that's where president vladimir putin is holding talks with his turkish counterpart rajat type thirty one before flying to saatchi dismissed suggestions by the u.s. and russia that they can be no military solution to the war in syria saying if that were true the two countries should pull their troops out is going to start to speak to al-jazeera correspondent rory challen so rory they've met what four times already this year these two leaders why is this meeting taking place. well this is taking place because these two leaders are essentially trying to patch up a relationship that has been badly damaged in the last couple of years two years ago almost to the day of the turkish shutdown a russian warplane over the syria border that sets off a whole chain of recriminations and responsive measures russia basically almost
8:21 pm
completely severed contact with turkey put in loads of economic embargo and sanctions pulled back from infrastructure projects and that sort of thing so the relationship really really sank to a significant low since then there has been an apology of sorts and the two leaders have been meeting many times to try and get things back to how they were so they talked. in the sort of preliminary statement before disappearing behind closed doors for their meeting about how cooperation in syria kind of laid the grounds for a more optimistic view of the future they have been co-sponsoring the star on a process along with iran which is essentially put in place all these deescalation zones in syria so they're quite pleased with how that is going they're also talking about the re establishment of economic ties most to russia's trade embargoes and
8:22 pm
restrictions have been lifted now and then in the background there's also this weapons deal that's bubbling away turkey is buying the four hundred missile system of russia it's a sophisticated piece of kit it's much to the chagrin of turkey's nato allies which don't like this deal at all but it's almost completed according to the turkish so the two leaders in the two countries have been moving cases together over the past year or so but it has to be said the president outlines not entirely happy with the situation certainly in syria as regards both russia and the united states. no as you are saying just there. and had a press conference before he left for russia earlier in the day and he was saying what he's saying he's trying to get his head really around was trump and putin said together in a joint statement on saturday which was that the syrian conflict has no military
8:23 pm
solution well i don't think he has a problem with that statement itself but he's thinks that this is contradict the contradictory and hypocritical essentially if these two leaders think that the the syrian war has no military solution why have they not pulls their militaries out of syria why are they still operational there so he's got a problem with that he also i think has problems with the way things are panning out on the ground in syria the situation particularly where there's a particular very complicated part of the syrian war taking place we have the free syrian army which is backed by syria squished into gether with much more hard line elements like groups that are affiliated with al qaida and the group that used to be called al nusra and now turkey has been trying to sort of split those elements apart parts there are still regime air strikes ongoing which turkey has it doesn't like and then there's a perennial problem of the kurds which for turkey is
8:24 pm
a significant national security issue russia has a dialogue with the white p.g. turkey considers the white b.g. a terrorist group so that's another of the issues that i think is going to be addressing here in plenty of issues to talk about those two leaders said you have more from rory in the coming hours thanks ali. now this year's world council leaders summit in mexico city aims to find a coordinated response to what is being called the spiralling cancer epidemic the focus will be to ensure infrastructure is in place to reach millions of sufferers in urban areas such as the brazilian city of rio de janeiro. reports. ten year old there needs his mother's help with his studies beyond his fighting breast cancer which appears to have spread to her spine hit a muscles. she's not sure since she's been waiting for more than a year for
