3:05 am
president michel aoun and his powerful son in law the foreign minister and how do you they could then be tasked with forming a technocratic government which he leads. but hezbollah also has the option of going without having the forgoing prime minister had e.d. and essentially trying to govern on its own together with this christian primarily christian allies that would be a very difficult thing for hezbollah systemd but they might attempt it anyway there is no doubt that the lebanese structure the very nature of the system that it really is based on a division of spoils among its various communities the christians the sunni the shia the druze there's no doubt that there is a problem at the heart of that but we we've also seen a governing coalition primarily since 2006 when prime minister had a duty and his party decided to partner up with hezbollah and president me shallow
3:06 am
and said that governing coalition has been proven is specially incapable of delivering on good governance and that's a problem that we've seen not only in beirut but we're seeing also on the streets of baghdad this is 1st and foremost about governance about socioeconomics and not about geopolitics. turkey's president says tens of thousands of kurdish led forces have withdrawn from the border zone in northeast syria the polite was completed ahead of a deadline set for tuesday it paves the way for russian and turkish forces to begin joint patrols in the region reports from. kurdish fighters retreating from the so-called safe zone but turkey says its patrols will determine if the withdrawal is in line with the deal is signed with russia last week the safe zone is a 440 kilometer long and 32 kilometer deep area that's watches from zealous northwest to belak here on the border with iraq east turkey has insisted on

establishing a buffer zone on the border with syria saying it's crucial to prevent the peoples protection unit the white b.g. from expanding its influence turkish authorities consider the white b.g. a terrorist group rather than. for the us the y.p. g. the main kurdish faction in the syrian democratic forces. was a crucial ally in defeating eisel. the retreat of the kurdish fighters would be a crucial moment for president as a player. who has been warning against a full blown mystery confrontation if syrian kurdish fighters remain in the safe zone. although must be the killer part in the russia as all know has given the information to all relevant authorities that terrorists organizations have completely ripped drawl. it was a tense day

or senior figures in the government and also to try and define what happened to more than a 1000000 armenians at the end of the ottoman empire at the end of the farce world war and the on sanctions passed with bipartisan support and overwhelmingly essentially what the house of representatives is saying to donald trump is that he must impose sanctions against senior figures in the government against those who planned and carried out the military incursion into northeast syria particularly those that targeted the kurds and also calls on donald trump to develop a long term plan to defeat eisel and all this coming just a short time after the house of representatives passed a resolution which said that the u.s. should no longer associate itself with the denial of the armenian genocide essentially talking about what happened to those 1000000 plus armenians at the end
3:11 am
of the 1st world war turkey has always denied that there was a genocide a similar motion passed through the house of representatives back in $1804.00 but it didn't really go anywhere and there are no plans to raise a similar resolution in the senate is so really this decision by the house of representatives is not legally binding that we nothing for donald trump to sign the american position therefore remains the same that what happened at the end of the farce world war was an atrocity and it certainly wasn't a genocide as for the turks their reaction 1st of all to the sanctions they say that this is not worthy of a nato ally and certainly goes against the whole idea of the agreement with the united states that brought a temporary end to the fighting in northeast syria and the action again. the cards and as far as the genocide resolution they say it is a shameful decision which is null and void.

3:16 am
seen some kara conditions for a few days and there's more of that as you can see now a lot of cloud to the south this is a potential new storm system that is developing even if it doesn't develop those strong winds it is going to produce a huge amounts of rain but not quite making it up to the south coast of china so you know wednesday but by thursday a lot of that moisture spilling to the north with the clouds and some very heavy rain then pushing across into more central areas of the vietnam but more rain pushing cross into the philippines as well over the next few days the system is really sitting to the west of the philippines there's more showers in the wake of that meanwhile across much of indonesia got more rain showers as well not as many say that's running to get pulled northwards as that system works its way into those areas of vietnam meanwhile across into india this is what we're watching very closely this is a tropical cycle and it's moving away from n.d.s. so taking that rain with it however is now the potential for a new storm system developing again just off the south coast so this again will pump a lot of moisture across the region particularly heavy as we go through wednesday
3:17 am
and thursday across into sri lanka and again the system will keep an eye on but sunday by thursday very heavy rains could lead to flooding across into carola. the weather sponsored by qatar is. a survivor of the genocide there are people who beg me to kill the person when they're suffering but it didn't have the power to do it he's dedicated his life to searching the woods for bones of the victims of the srebrenica massacre. and the furious to do all. you know hope of finally laying the past to rest and giving peace to the victims' families. i can just kind of think about i could bury him bone hunter on al jazeera.

3:19 am
president and his ukrainian counterparts alexander vinda has testified that he raised concerns twice about the president's efforts to pressure ukraine so investigates political rival joe biden the phone call is at the center of the impeachment hearing into truong heidi jocasta reports from washington d.c. alexander venom and is a u.s. army colonel iraq veteran and the 1st impeachment witness with 1st hand knowledge of the july phone call between president trump and the ukrainian president volodymyr zelinsky then man was among the white house staff listening when trump said to the ukrainian leader i would like you to do west a favor publicly investigate trumps political rival joe biden and a company called charisma that employed by tin son i was concerned by the call binman said in his written testimony i did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a us citizen i was worried about the implications for the us government support of
3:20 am
ukraine i realized that if ukraine pursued an investigation into the bidens and it would likely be interpreted as a partisan play which would undoubtedly result in ukraine losing the bipartisan support it has thus far maintained this would all undermine u.s. national security the newly elected selenski was hoping to schedule a visit to the white house and ukraine was waiting for u.s. military aid needed to fend off russia but trump temporarily withheld the aid as his advisors continued to push ukraine to investigate the democrats and biden. this is about the united states constitution this is about the rule of law this is about national security this is about abuse of power this is about the fact that the president betrayed. his oath of office and the american people trump has denied wrongdoing and attack the credibility of witnesses who operate it with the inquiry
3:21 am
