world's largest rain forest this is just one of several 1000 fires currently consuming swaths of the brazilian amazon and the world is watching we're very concerned about these fires both for the immediate damage that they're causing and also because sustained force is crucial in our fight against climate change the amazon produces 20 percent of the world's oxygen that's why it's called the planet's lungs but environmentalist warn if the burning continues at this rate the rain forest will transform to a landscape resembling the african savannah and rather than produce oxygen the antidote to global warming the former rain forest will humid carbon instead in brazil sister e. was soon difficult situations but for the 1st time we have this kind of situation that was created almost with official encouragement from the government
10:51 pm
environmental groups a rancher's and log or started the fires to clear the land. they were playing brazil's president. as a candidate he promised to give businesses access to natural resources to restore the country's economy as president he's gutted funding for brazil's environmental and forstmann agency and he now says without offering evidence that environmental groups set the fires themselves. or now the amazon is bigger than europe how can you fight criminal fires in such an area it is clearly criminal how can you do it you need to catch them in the act otherwise there's nothing you can do now non-governmental organizations are losing money money that came from germany and norway they are unemployed now so they are trying to overthrow. the hash tag pray for amazonas has been trending on twitter. and other world leaders have reacted as well our house is burning literally tweeted french president emanuel

macron it is an international crisis he's called the members of the g. 7 summit to discuss the amazon fire at their upcoming meeting this weekend. castro al-jazeera washington. our correspondent daniel swine now is in brazil and he has this something to wail these are the people who voted for the job also now to become the next president because he promised them that they would be able to carry on developing this area the state of around on you which is the capital already 70 percent of the forest of it has been deforested. says it's right for further development so life here goes on we've just seen several trucks go past carrying huge logs to the logging industry is very big cattle rearing is very big so they really won't be listening to that international condemnation yet we're told that just a few kilometers from here the fires are raging we'll be going out to see those in
10:53 pm
a little while so the devastation will be hitting this area but this is where people make money this is an area right for development so whether they're listening to that those messages coming from around the world is really up in the air increasingly that international condemnation condemnation for within brazil itself is growing he is trying to let that with russia slide off his back. really now remains to see how much that international and national condemnation will grow and when the job also noddle will be forced to take note of it and do something concrete to try to do with this this problem which is threatening to get out of control. iran's foreign minister has hailed closet's of talks with the french president a man while mccall on salvaging the times of 15 getting a deal speaking with the forces after his meeting with mcconnell sorry said both countries have made suggestions on how to move forward after the u.s.
10:54 pm
pulled out of a deal last year president mcchrystal has previously said leave the child to something the impact of u.s. sanctions or come up with a way to compensate the iranian people when the team joins us live from paris and so getting kind of positive signals and team as to how this meeting went. will julie we are from the iranian side zarif himself. in comments put out by the iranian embassy here in paris called the talks with emmanuel michael constructive he's also met the foreign minister even rio but he's also he's at the same time reiterated that the so-called j c p a way the nuclear deal struck in 2015 cannot be renegotiated that's not a surprise iran has always said that it sticks by a deal and in fact so has france and its european partners yukos signed the deal
10:55 pm
in 2018 of course the u.s. withdrew from the deal and reimposed economic sanctions which of really started to have an effect on the iranian economy this week president michel has said he'd propose steps. which would allow the arabian people to live a better life possibly involving allowing countries. to buy iranian crude oil for a limited period possibly opening up credit lines to the iranian government we haven't heard any details after the talks here in paris but the iranian foreign minister made it clear that. what they've been doing recently which is involved fame ignoring the limits. the amount of enrich uranium they can produce a substance which intentionally could be used in a nuclear weapons program such measures could be reversed but he says that that's dependent on all sides meeting their obligations under the deal. you know.
10:56 pm
we may negotiated and accepted the nucular d.-o. we did it with open eyes iran negotiated it based on distrust that's why in article 36 we predicted some ways to compensate illegal acts of the other sides and now we are taking those measures but it was crucial for us to show that we are looking for solutions still looking for solutions and based on the other side's commitments we are committed to the deal. so. the french president clearly hoping that he will have something to take it to the g 7 starting this weekend in the of it she's got support on friday from an unnamed british diplomatic source reiterating that the british government senses that they fully supports the nuclear deal is the best way to stop iran acquiring a nuclear weapon the big unknown is how will the u.s.
10:57 pm
react of course they've been ramping up the pressure and we've seen heightened tension in the gulf in recent months some of those g 7 allies will be hoping for some kind of acceptance by the u.s. that something needs to be done in terms of sweeteners to iran to get them but around the negotiating table but i don't think anyone is daring to say that president trump and his security advisor john bolton are ready to bite just yet. but they're him paris and. the new york times is reporting that israel carried out an attack on a weapons step on iraq to senior u.s. officials told the newspaper that there have been at least 4 strikes on deathless control by iranian backed groups and iraqi military official confirmed a base was hit and 3 people were killed including and rainy and israel has launched hundreds of air strikes against iranian assets in syria during the a.t.o. or. 17 year old girl has israeli girl has died in an explosion in the occupied

10:59 pm
fence and so on they've been talking in that language earlier this week now that this payment has gone through this $11000000.00 which is destined for some of the poorest families inside gaza the committee which organizes these protests in which of course hamas has an extremely large voice it came out at 3 o'clock this morning saying that it wanted to ensure that people stayed back from the fence that we know such use of incentive devices and that's why they wanted a large turnout because this is to mark the 50th anniversary this process is to mark the 50th anniversary of the fire that was set in side the mosque in jerusalem by an australian christian who believes he was trying to bring on that the 2nd coming of jesus christ they want large numbers but they don't want to see major confrontations today and that seems to be how things are playing out certainly there are large numbers of hamas security around. they had been trying to prevent
11:00 pm
people getting through into this well the israelis term a buffer zone in front of the defense of course we have now seen hundreds of people go in to that area but they're not getting too close there has been some use of life we hear that there have been 9 injuries so far at the various sites up and down the border but here we haven't seen a large amount of life and relatively limited use of tear gas as well from the israelis so so far the seams are relatively controlled and in relative terms quiet event. it's been amongst to some degree of heightened tensions hasn't is there a chance to think things could escalate. certainly always a concern and particularly at the moment given 2 things really one is as you say a number of events since the 1st of august there have been a number of attempts by armed palestinian men to get through the fence and they have been shot and killed there's been helicopter and tank fire used in at least
11:01 pm
