on worshippers while the sermon was underway. looks like it was. not really clear this motive was i know it's my responsibility yet but it's very possibly. they have turned into this in the last. night. egyptian forces have for years battled armed groups in the country's rugged and remote sinai peninsula attacks on security forces have been frequent like this car bomb explosion the targeted a police station in a lot in two thousand and fifteen really is i know there's been a lot of. fighting between isis and security forces there for years now. and so. a lot of. area president i'm going to put that has sisi convened an

9:05 pm
brands them traitors for cooperating with soldiers and the police another major target is coptic christians in february dozens of christian families fled the region after a number of killings by suspected eisel fighters while in the hours that followed the attack international condemnation to it has been quite quick the white house says called on the international community to strengthen efforts to defeat terrorist groups while the u.s. president on trump tweeted that it was a quote horrible horrible and cowardly terrorist attack on defenseless worshippers israel's hard line education minister enough taliban it also says it's time for international unity in the war on terror and the british prime minister of tourism a says she is appalled by the sickening attack and sends condolences to all of those affected for more on this let's speak to omar sure he's
9:06 pm
a visiting professor of security studies at the arab center for research and policy studies in doha thanks for joining us here on al-jazeera first of all your reaction to this attack which as we've seen is nothing new as such in the sinai peninsula but it is quite shocking simply by a by the size of the number of fatalities. yeah as you mentioned it's there are a few bits here first. egypt's worst terrorist attack in its modern history even worse than the. metro jet airliner bombing. in october in two thousand and fifteen the fatalities then what about two hundred twenty four this time it exceeds two hundred thirty and the. more than one hundred people of more than one hundred nine people injured as well. the other new thing there is that the this is the first time they attack
9:07 pm
a mosque. or isis. has attacked mosques before in places like yemen gonna stand in iraq i think it's the first time to attack a sufi mosque in egypt before that they executed two well known sophie sheiks in in in sinai. and did have propaganda video on the whole thing accused them of being. magicians of some sort and they killed them accordingly but then this is the first time they just attack on without any discrimination and that way before that they used to attack soldiers and officers dissuade without any discrimination and also attack some of the israel obviously they do that on the mumblings and read random attacks but this is the first time they choose a specific religious group and attack it in a mosque that way. the third bit is that they keep on
9:08 pm
transferring strategies so they. are used to attack again in a conventional way more or more less like special forces convention special forces large formations support for with light artillery support with guided missiles guided rockets and then retreat after that in the most famous attack was that on his way to. in july twenty fifteen when attacked twenty one targets with twenty one formations and after that retreated. and then they they know more and more rely on guerrilla strategies or attack with small formations and then disappeared after that in the desert or in the and sometimes in urban areas but also they've been relying heavily on urban terror on this kind of attacks attacking easy targets soft targets civilian targets and they did this with some of the churches before some of the coptic christian population in sinai as you know the many of the
9:09 pm
families have left and fled but this time they do it to a mosque primarily. that is affiliated with would suffer orders with egyptians who orders they come from the if it's if it's sinai province of course it comes from her hubby background in terms of the ideology and the ideological and dogmatic rift between sufism and we have islam is very well known. and omar just so you know we're seeing pictures of course on our screens right now just a horrific scenes of the aftermath of that attack two hours ago we heard from president sisi he spoke publicly he said he vowed to restore order and security and he mentioned you do it with an iron fist but certainly they must be questions about security in sinai it's very difficult i know to get information out of sonic as for example media is it really allowed but there must be huge questions now about how this actually was possible the two hundred thirty five dead hundreds more injured i mean is this going to stick do you think the president when it comes to the fact
9:10 pm
that he has been ineffective in keeping security. overall you're right the overall strategy was extremely ineffective we saw before twenty fifteen you know this is not the crisis is not a new crisis it's an old crisis but before twenty thirteen it was a minor crisis it was a minor group that is operating in the very northeastern more stop its attacks on its borders and the most successful attack that back then it killed around sixteen people. and it would happen three times a year three to four times a year the attacks now the frequency of attacks according to the arms center which is official is about three attacks. in attack daily and attack daily since two thousand and fourteen so for three years you have an attack per day in sinai of some sort which is you know that puts it in the size in the medium level insurgency not a low level insurgency and this is after the extreme escalation in the use of force
9:11 pm
in the military operations there that started in september twenty thirty two or now in november twenty seven four years later and we have this kind of and mind you. the organization operates in not very geographically rugged area so there's not much mountains most of the mountains are in the center and in the south of sinai so there's not much. geographical zones that they can escape to. there's no not that much popular support you know that every clan is divided not every tribe every tribe obviously is divided that mosque was it was mostly a tribe affiliates that go to most of the leaders of some of the leaders of sinai province are from the silica tribe so even the tribe is very much divided but moreover they do they have no external support so they are at war with israel at war with hamas at war with the egyptian regime and at war with some of the affiliates the local affiliates of various tribes in. having all this data means
9:12 pm
that this should have ended but it. not mainly because of the ineffective counterterrorism tactics and counter strike the counterinsurgency tactics that have been using been used in sinai for the last four years or more to shore from the arab center for research and policy studies. omar thank you know history has been made in zimbabwe where the first a new president in thirty seven years has been sworn into office in his inauguration speech and. promised to create jobs reimburse farmers whose lands were seized and stamp out corruption he also paid his respects to his predecessor robert mugabe for me to miller was at the ceremony in harare and sent us this report. a new and unfolding democracy is how amazon when i go describes his ascent to power even if it took a military intervention to end robert mugabe's presidency tens of thousands of zimbabweans waited for hours to watch my god was swearing into office and

9:33 pm
shattered its economy controversial land reforms at the turn of the millennium calls hyper inflation reaching two hundred thirty one million percent in july two thousand and eight a year later zimbabwe was forced to kill off its currency people now use u.s. dollar or south african rand but a cash shortage is strangling the economy cutting at the half its size compared to seventeen years ago at least seventy two percent of people live in poverty and unemployment is still to be around eighty percent that number is the spew to zimbabwe's biggest trade union says ninety five percent of people don't have jobs now in two thousand and twenty mugabe threatened to seize all western investments in response to international sanctions that scared off prospective investors and affected exports well chris the former gaga is the c.e.o. of zimbabwe's national chamber of commerce he joins us live now from harare service thank you so much for joining us here on al-jazeera and just listening to that list
9:34 pm
of all the challenges that zimbabwe faces of how do you think the new president is going to even start dealing with the with what he faces. thank you very much good evening yes indeed if you look at the challenges in but we've been facing for the past a texan is can i say this is the turn of the independence of the country at the moment it's a juncture we zimbabweans are fearing for the west but it is tim tebow hoping for the best you know coming from an economic meltdown where you know that poverty level has it gone beyond eighty five percent for swinish and legs around eighteen million people i think naturally it became a sort of concede but maybe at the same time if you look and watch closely what the very president of zimbabwe. spoke about getting this in the economy i think what was just issue is the simple fact that he's alive to the challenges the economy is facing he promised to deal with corruption he promised to do with the liquidity challenges affecting the economy he also promised to do even with the challenges to
9:35 pm
do with trade or ease of doing business within the economy but maybe the million dollar question is to what extent will he be able maybe to disappoint some of the comet he had been with within the forest the college didn't with within the government for the past seven years what is time to sort of dribbling. richard tend to become just but maybe it works in textbook of pathology so the moment this is the question of will be asking within their minds to see to what extent we have the leverage and also the power from these parties and even the opposition in the country to see to that any policy reform is going to make a difference especially within the next average eight months before you physically decide which you know very well that will be heading to an election where i guess the answer to your question will be you know we'll find out in the coming weeks and months but how important do you think it is to attract foreign investment which had recently been staying away from zimbabwe and do you think that the momentum that
9:36 pm
there now is in the country this side of change and certainly at the helm do you think that that will help foreign investment come back. yeah i think the issue for indebted to. you know if it was that last two years to push it out on to one hundred twenty million years dollars annually was just about a pittance in terms of potential look at zimbabwe to pick off the i would see us picking an average of about one point a to billion that is out on eight hundred eighty seven thousand and eight so today if you're talking of the turned into to be done in terms of the i desk but emittance if you look at zimbabweans we would love the country to china money because they're contributing beyond one billion so those would leave the country i willing to give more than those who are coming to invest in the country but i think the crux of the matter of the point you will be in the nature of the structure and the complection of the cabinet the new president is going to say that obviously people are really closely watching to say is he going to play the commodity language of maybe not disciplining the friends but i want to believe that this is
9:37 pm
there is an opportune time for the new president of zimbabwe to put the house in order to accept that it's not about the political leadership which exists even prior to independence which would define the pace of this economy so let's wait to see the cabinet the new president is going to announce i want to believe that this can only be the only source of really prevented the same time evidence of to what extent this present government which it just came in today is willing to face or to solve the problems of this economy head on if you look generally i think look at the trade deficit this country been facing which is attribute it to be one of the major reasons why we're having because we have moved in from the very period of two thousand and up to date zimbabwe experienced almost a thirty billion cumulatively in terms of trade deficit you know the industry been decimated with the month accounting sector capacity utilization go even below fifty percent you look at it and quoted equipment in factories you look at the cash or they just we're talking of today all these challenges i think what is important is
9:38 pm
for the you president to accept that the fundamental challenges african economy are so structure that you can't be an overnight process to solve these challenges the moment a populist is given president. well you see sometimes. this has been one of the major challenges of the economy. the problems of zimbabwe in terms of economy. but i think it will be defined by the type of cabinet minister. going to sit in the same time we're also going to watch closely in terms of policy reform i think you heard from the speech you spoke about the need to. do is i think you know if it were that a lot of companies operating in zimbabwe today from the neighboring south africa they'd been challenges in terms of getting the trade protocols you know after the. lead which belonged to even some south africans white was during the process in zimbabwe to what extent is it going to face this challenge somehow defy what is
9:39 pm
pretty. to see zimbabwe belong to zimbabwe according to mugabe then zimbabwe was for the black people so it will be. judge the process going forward because it probably become so polarized to the extent that. you certainly. very much watch with interest for now is going to juggle between the created. a lot of unknowns still remain of course about zimbabwe's future christopher. zimbabwe's national chamber of commerce sir thank you for joining us. argentina's president says he expects search teams to find his navy's missing submarine within days but he didn't specify whether they expect to find survivors the son went missing nine days ago off the coast in argentina with forty four crewmembers on board it can only remain submerged for seven days hopes of any survivors are fading after the navy the tech did an explosion close to the submarine last position.
9:40 pm
it's a moment. it's a difficult moment for everyone and obviously especially so for the family of the forty four crew my first request is that we get through this moment on the following days with the utmost respect for the pain of the families and to them i say i'm here to guarantee we're going to continue with the search especially now that we can count on the support of the entire international community with all the technology available this will surely bring us to find the submarine in the coming days and then a shrine there is live for us at the naval base at del plata daniel do you think the president is being overly optimistic considering how many difficulties there they've had in locating a submarine they don't even vaguely know where it is so saying they will be found in a couple of days. i mean there's a possibility they'll find the submarine but i think hopes have pretty much faded
9:41 pm
here certainly among the family members of those forty four crew that they're going to find them alive i mean yesterday thursday they left this military base behind me the naval base behind me having spoken to the authorities having hoped for the first time about the explosion is thought to have happened shortly after the submarine lost contact with the store it is on the fifteenth of november they were told family members were told not to expect to see their loved ones alive that they were all dead that's not been confirmed visually but that's certainly the feeling around the country among the naval command and among those families so the morning has begun most of them have left the base have gone back to their homes to start that morning but the search operation does still continue there's something like ten countries involved all the resources available to the argentine navy there's also forces in the united states from russia from brazil from the u.k.
9:42 pm
with the aircraft ships underwater. rescue vessels all looking for that submarine there is really no sign as to where it might be is thought it was thought that it was sailing along the continental shelf at about two hundred meters below the water from the southern port of loose wire to hear it when it lost contact with the orthorexic is if it's to the east of that continental shelf. to the bottom of the sea it could be as far as three thousand meters below the sea level in that case is very little chance of ever finding it again and that means that many of these questions are being asked about what exactly happened. what happened immediately afterwards whether in fact vessel so although it was thirty four years old should in fact have been in service may well not be answered or certainly not satisfactory answers to those questions as an operation still going on there still many many doubts. there at the naval base in medical platen daniel thank you. the

facing possible impeachment over his support for a syrian refugee how much army arrived in slovenia last year but a new and slovenian courts say that he must be sent back to neighboring croatia because that's where he was first registered as a refugee but prime minister said adams said he'll try to find an alternative to deportation and that's caused up for his coalition partners have threatened to pull out the main opposition party says he should be impeached and even members of his own party have attacked him well let's speak to me how cordis he's a member of parliament for the left wing opposition party livid so he helped stop shammy being deported earlier this month by taking him to power the. element building any no joins us live now thank you so much for being with us now just explain to us this refugee ahmed shania he first registered in croatia we all know that you rules say that it's the country that first register as refugees that
9:47 pm
basically has to then process them so why did you and presumably the prime minister feel so strongly that this man should actually stay in slovenia well that is could serve as a battering ram against slovenia fortress euro. nothing is forcing a particular european country to the border people we can all see what welcomed them in our community regardless of for example in. this by them registering first in croatia but just explain to us what it is about this person in particular because i understand it was because he had shown to have integrated it in slovenia. yeah that's definitely what's happened however i'm strongly. i'm strong position every house island seeker should be granted asylum is our hearts and our party is fighting for that understand your party is but you'll appreciate that that is against the opinion of
9:48 pm
a lot of people not just in slovenia but really across europe as especially central and eastern europe and i guess what's happening to the prime minister the calls for his impeachment kind of the strength of feeling why do you think there is such a strength of feeling in in savina against what you've just advocated for effectively welcoming refugees. well i think it is a large part. because of the right wing fear mongering because in this specific case where people were confronted with a story a living breathing actual beauty that was a human being if you want a heart and a lot of people who previously strongly opposed immigration are starting to look into your views and what do you think is actually going to happen to the prime minister mira say or do you think you'll be impeached or do you think that his you know his the position that he's taken on this will not only keep his career going
9:49 pm
but also perhaps change the mentality in slovenia mo the impeachment is not going to go to the best that's that's for sure after all is first and foremost an attempt by parliamentary farai to little discourse are against immigration so from the brute political point of view it's job is complete and i'm happy to report on successful what's happened is that the people turning against immigration are starting to think about refugees in terms of helping fellow human beings you know some things those are for in your brain that's here to put your gold your way i may have quotas from the left wing opposition party livy say in slovenia this to court is thank you. and still ahead in this news hour in sports and there is another accolade for me i know messi because coming up with interest them.
