10:02 pm
have you with us on al-jazeera so it was less than a day ago that separate us were talking about their very firm control of aden what happened. first what's going on in the agent today in the capital city of is that it's a. cheap tactic immoral cheap tactic by the legitimate government who is. using sleeper cells to activate and to to cause chaos in the city all in the. 4 or negotiation is the saudi led decision on how does the government's trying to regain control of a city a you when recognize the government trying to regain control of the city a cheap tactic. well the fortunately the legitimate government the internationally recognized government has proven to be incompetent
10:03 pm
dysfunctional it has corrupted from the. largest from the highest ranked government official to the lowest it is also has has proven over the past couple of weeks that as directly and there is evidence that there are strong ties between the military forces that are loyal to the internationally recognized government and to radical forces of course they haven't in the liberated cities in the liberated governorates they haven't even provided even though some of the basic services and there is you know a tolerance level that can do continues to decrease regarding as far as the popular will on the. people is it is a misalignment isn't it a government that the separatists have forced along side though with the government and the saudi and iraqi forces against the whole things that point for the last 4
10:04 pm
years. of course actually the southern transitional council and the southern forces that were actually the main reason why the government even had a. or some ground to govern from which is done and some of the southern governor it's as far as the fighting has proven over the past couple of weeks of the power sorry the past week. and madam units have mobilized from their all to destabilize the situation large. military groups what have you with have used weapons have mobilized to show what to destabilize shop what that is under the protection of the. security forces of the southern transitional council. as a as opposed to using those military forces to liberate. the yemeni areas that are
10:05 pm
still under the opposite the occupation of who does this not and that you started to protest does this mean that you are going to stop fighting alongside the government and the coalition against the whole things and piss you a separate southern state despite these setbacks. these southern transitional council and the secure the southern forces in general are are a strong ally to the region itself and this is and holds the regional security as high a priority so fighting the and these and the anti of the fronts as still commencing as we speak there are over 25000 southern troops in the northern provinces but when you are not there and on the side of the government against the who things are you going to fight on your own against the who things are you no longer going to be a part of the family you want to sion. unfortunately the government has proven that
10:06 pm
they have not no intentions on fighting the whole of these they have been in a stalemate ceasefire in mad with the over 250000 troops for over 4 years and they have only used those forces to destabilize what have already been liberated by this autumn forces in the southern governor this is this has been proven last week and they have also proven which is another exposure to them that they have strong ties with the and a common ground with jesus a common enemy because the southern forces have been the only genuine viable force that have conducted counter terrorism and saw it illegitimate government found a common denominator with these extremist groups to fight or to try and attempt to destabilize the southern forces in the liberated areas who are with the less unfortunately they could have used and focused these. military strengths or they
10:07 pm
are mobilizing to the northern governorates where they could have helped to actually liberate those areas and possibly engage in a negotiation peace process in the future so none of the main issues that interest them. not the southern represented representation is not included in the peace process listen i'm on we thank you very much for your time i'm afraid we have run out of time but that is the southern transitional council's al had their sentiment in new york thank you. but plenty more ahead on the news hour including we speak to families in indian administered made a desperate for information on people who've been jailed under new restrictions and a debut u.s. open for this 15 year old tennis star we'll tell you how she got on board.

10:10 pm
collaborating with egyptian security and the people over there making it harder to get across the border there was an attack such as this in 2017 and in southern gaza but this attack has come right in the center of gaza city so we understand there have been arrests made i'm asked does monitor the activity of these groups extremely closely so the fact that this is not in has come as a shock to hamas to the people there well let's take a closer look at the activities of i saw sympathizers in the gaza strip how much hamas which runs the palestinian territory has been cracking down on supporters of violent groups who threaten to topple gaza's leaders and al qaida and groups in the neighboring sinai peninsula and egypt have been accusing her loss of being soft on israel and of failing to impose a more strict version of islam there's also been a dispute over the role of iran and the lebanese shia group hezbollah and the conflict between israel and the palestinians well let's get more on this now we're

joined by the use of he's a hamas official was once and it was advisor to the former prime minister ismail haniya and he's joining us live from gaza mr hughes of always good to have you with us on al-jazeera was the security lapse by hamas given that i say linked groups have been calling for attacks like this against hamas and hamas security personnel. actually those people you know remember 2 years ago me behind massive crackdown on many of those salafist jihadist they put them in jail hoping that they will discipline them and release them again one of those people actually who will be in jail being released according to one of the security information that the guy who been listed and being released he that the one who committed this was bombing unfortunately
10:12 pm
those people whenever they have been. exist and they cause a trouble to any country and this this kind of the silence if you have this committing suicide bombing and terrorism causing all the trouble wherever they have been exist unfortunately and that is try to deal with them because fully and just try to analyze them. but had actually fail in the result mr yousef has had mass failed in dealing with these people and these groups who have been operating on some. and have you know once again carried out attacks killing 3 police officers. i'm as they have everything with those people to discipline them and to educate them and. to discipline them really justly because many of those people who are not. unfortunately many of those who group has been betrayed by the
