5:05 am
a huge step backwards in credibility where it really matters russia in turn introduced its own resolutions suggesting 2 crossing points be open for a period of 6 months both on the turkish border this was rejected by 6 members of the council who labeled it as a cynical political move the united kingdom voted against the russian text because we will not negotiate with a gun held to our heads over a cynical offer that would say fewer lives than we know is needed and that the un very clearly set out was necessary the one year term for the 4 crossing points expires on the 10th of january and unless the security council can come up with a compromise resolution by that date it will be millions of syrians with no humanitarian aid. joshua landis is the director of the center for middle east awnings at the university of oklahoma and he says that the international community
5:06 am
is unlikely to intervene in an adlib. this is a humanitarian disaster waiting to happen there are many militants in this region syria is using nat as a pretext or as an excuse to destroy them and we know that the united states just you know a little while ago bombed in libya province itself in order to kill caleb baghdadi who had taken refuge there with some of his men many isis people had fled into the region so he world opinion maybe less. maybe divided over this region and this you know the world is really not looking turkey has closed the border and even though it is waving its arms at this and asking to international community to do something about it it's very unlikely that there will be anything done so if they want to take this province back. and syria has for a long time insisted that i have the highway open between damascus and aleppo the
5:07 am
main highway that's now near. days to cities that syria is is bombing most heavily right now and moving towards and so it seems inevitable that syria will eventually take back these provinces the world is fed up with the syrian situation they've moved their gaze elsewhere i can tell you in the united states the syrian story has not been on the front page for a long time it's all about impeachment elections and ever since president trump withdrew from syria with truly u.s. troops there's really been very little syrian news here. let's move on to other news now the chief prosecutor of the international criminal court is pushing for an investigation into alleged war crimes in the palestinian territory she wants that to happen once the i.c.c. establishes its jurisdiction both israelis and palestinians face the possibility of having charges filed against them the u.s.

5:09 am
occupation and thus opening the oracle of the scope but israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the court has no jurisdiction to investigate in the palestinian territories this is a dark day for truth and justice the i.c.c. prosecutor has apparently decided not to dismiss the palestinian claim against the state of israel this is a baseless and religious decision the court has no jurisdiction in this case. the i.c.c. only has jurisdiction over petitions submitted by sovereign states but there's never been opposed to. the court based in the netherlands will only investigate alleged crimes committed after june 2014 when palestine became part of the i.c.c. has jurisdiction in the past 5 years thousands of new illegal settlement units were developed along with the confiscation of palestinian lands and demolition of their
5:10 am
homes israel's response isn't unexpected it says the i.c.c. lacks validity over the israeli palestinian conflict since israel is not a member of the court and palestine is not a state even though the united nation granted palestine the status of nonmember state 7 years ago palestinian leaders say any crimes committed on palestinian territory must fall under the court's jurisdiction and. to india now where large crowds have again defied a bad on public gatherings to continue their protests against a controversial new citizenship law rallies were held in new delhi and elsewhere but protesters saying the law as anti muslim sabinus stressed out reports from new delhi. from friday prayers to street protests indians in the capital new delhi were in no rush to obey the government's ban on large gatherings

5:20 am
the replacement to be nominated there is a constitutional crisis going on right now in this country and that's because the parliament has not been able to come up with a nominee for the position of the prime minister any names that have been floated around over the past 1516 days have all been rejected by the protesters on the streets they say that they want a change to the whole entire electoral system and of course that's not something that is likely to happen overnight and this call by the grand ayatollah only adds an urgency to the matters saying that there really must be a broader solution to try and end this deadlock because as long as this deadlock continues this uncertainty continues so will the security that is looming in iraq the security situation is just getting worse by day day by day and they said the authorities believe that in order to bring the country together early elections could be a possible way out twitter has removed nearly $6000.00 accounts which it says were

5:24 am
a 100 fires are burning across new south wales and over half of them are out of control need 10000 emergency personnel will be working across the state and what would be the largest deployment ever seen where jessica washington is joining us from the blue mountains which are west office sydney new south wales jessica one of 3 states on high alert and authorities bracing for worsening conditions what they're calling catastrophic conditions. elizabeth that's right this situation is incredibly volatile and authorities say it is a dynamic one and people must be aware of their surrounding it's the combination of 3 factors today on saturday which makes the situation so dangerous for crews on the ground it's that. stream heat that's coming from the heat wave which is affecting not only new south wales but also the neighboring states of south australia and victoria but the other factors are of course the low humidity and also the strong
5:25 am
winds these are the factors which crews mostly bowl and she is a battling as they face these fires today and just as we know as we've been reporting 2 volunteer firefighters have been code 8 people killed and that's a total death toll from the bushfires so what is far she's telling people. lose of it these fires have been going for 3 months in some parts of a stray earlier some of these crews have been on the ground for 3 months battling these fires as authorities are warning residents to be aware of their situation and of course there are a lot of local and international media on the ground authorities are trying to keep everyone safe we've been given these uniforms for our protection but of course the situation is changing credibly quickly you can see this area just to my right here to bio tore through this particular part of the blue mountains and authorities are
5:26 am
cautious they are concerned that a fire just to my left as well could extend and cross over this road and spread across these blue mountain areas so the message from authorities is that they that the community must stay alert be aware of the messages that are coming in from emergency services because things could change at simply a moment's notice a little bit of course jessica this is the stash of summit and while bush was unusual and australia as you said these ones have been going on for 3 months now so just how big how bad is this you know compared to previous years. elizabeth what we do know of course is as you said bushfires are normal part of the astrology and some of but not like this we've seen these heat wave conditions and this mix of a number of factors and that is something that a number of people around the strelley a many people all furious at the government for what they say is
5:27 am
a lack of action on climate change they have been protests around the strela in recent months mostly led by student protesters who say they are concerned about their safety they are concerned that they future in a stray leah is at risk and they say that it's the mix of factors that which has been in the headlines in recent months not just the bushfires but the extreme drought the catastrophic conditions that obama's are experiencing around australia all of these issues are putting the spotlight on the environmental crisis which happening all at once in a stray leah and that's something that many people are concerned about now bushfires are a state issue that's something that the state authorities look after but people say that the scope and scale of the crisis this year has made it a nationwide issue and many are calling on prime minister scott morrison to take action before street lights jessica thank you for that finale that is jessica washington lives in the blue mountains. still ahead on the news hour

5:31 am
again on there's a problem and these are the top stories this hour thousands of civilians are fleeing syria's edna province to the turkish border after a dramatic increase in bombings by the government and russia u.n. observers say 18000 people have been displaced in just 24 hours the international criminal court wants to open an investigation into alleged war crimes in palestinian territory palestinians welcomed the decision but israel's prime minister says the i.c.c.
5:32 am
has no jurisdiction to investigate and to add. it is building in chinese capital because it is a negotiating a new constitution ride police have been in a standoff with protesters for several hours using tear gas and water cannon to try to disperse crowds. now the u.s. president has hit out at a christian magazine which called for his removal from office a christianity today opinion piece called donald trump very lost and confused and said he isn't morally fit to be president exit polls found that 80 percent of evangelical christians voted for trump and 2016 the president responded in a series of tweets saying the magazine accusing the magazine of being very far left now white house correspondent committee how could explains why this seems to have rattled the president. i think what you have to take away from all of this is what donald trump believes and is counting on to help win reelection and that is a very conservative base of supporters that is often white and often identifies as
5:33 am
evangelical it helped him win in 2016 and he feels like he kept his promises to that community that essentially he did put on very conservative supreme court picks and he feels somewhat betrayed by the fact that even jelled polls in the united states have a bit of a schism just like the american voter as a whole but to kill early when it comes to the generational shift in terms of evangelicals a lot of the sort of younger evangelicals tend to have a liberal education and tend to see. many of the controversial issues that their parents would perhaps vote for example l.g.b. t. or even the issue of race tend to lean further left than their parents so the president is seeing perhaps a little bit of a product of that in terms of whether it's a road of his core support and i don't think so it doesn't seem likely but certainly it is a reflection once again as we've been talking with regard to this impeachment story
5:34 am
all week here on al-jazeera just how divided americans are when it comes to donald trump he's a polarizing figure. china's president has warned that beijing would never allow foreign forces to interfere in that special territories xi jinping made the comment as he swore in a new probe aging government in macau now protesters in hong kong have been fearing us about what they see as beijing and fringing on their freedoms but the gambling hub of macau has seen little dissent they go pollen reports from macau. it was a major moment for the chinese city often in the shadows of hong kong high praise from the president of china as he wrapped up his 3 day state visit its longest yet to macau. grand isle meant the mckale people are patriotic they feel strongly towards the nation have a strong sense of belonging and are proud of their nationality this is the most important reason for the success of one country 2 systems in macau hong kong and
5:35 am
macau on opposite sides of the pearl river delta are the only 2 cities in china administered under the one country 2 systems framework they enjoy freedoms and rights denied anywhere else in china. for the past 6 months hong kong has been racked by antigovernment protests and pro-democracy demonstrations trying to resist the tightening grip from china's leaders in beijing in macau along with celebrations on the 20th anniversary of the handover to chinese rule she jumping inaugurated its new chief executive. and china's leaders used the occasion to showcase macalso b.d.'s and compliance and called on hong kong to learn from its neighbor was different from hong kong in terms of its political culture where cars were culture is far more conservative far more proby jane macau is china's gambling capital the massive revenues generated by the casino industry are another factor
5:36 am
for political apathy according to sulu sukar whole the 28 year old is macos youngest ever legislator he's one of the few elected by. vote and is pro democracy gambling market how. many last monday then the government always used the. violence always sources to increase import the control of the international monetary fund says macau is poised to become the world's richest city in terms of per capita revenue by next year thanks to to gaming industry largely fueled by visitors from mainland china consumables you know who are you know you know want to everything is coming but. yeah those are the reasons why the downturn it's a point that beijing wants to make sure the people of macau in hong kong don't forget macalso reliance on china was highlighted by the newly installed chief executive who said the city would be an example of reunification with china but
5:37 am
it's a sentiment that many people in hong kong have been fighting against making it less likely that the chinese president will see hong kong emulate what he calls macau success. russian investigators have named the man who opened fire on the headquarters of the country's security service as yevgeny manju role he was shot dead on thursday after he attacked the f.s.b. these main building in moscow killing a russian secret service agent and another f.s.b. employee died of his injuries and hospital police have been searching manju robb's home. poland's parliament has defied a warning from the european union and passed a law that would see judges punished of the critical of courtroom forms the judicial changes have sparked protests in poland with allegations that they're aimed at shutting down criticism of the government the european commission has written to polish leaders reminding them to stay within doors well earlier my colleague spoke with parish he's
5:38 am
a professor of european or at middlesex university and he says that poland is moving further away from e.u. noise and the bloc itself. this is not the 1st time the warnings from brussels have been ignored by pushed or it is and in fact. british authorities have been under supervision or under monitoring from the u.s. since generate doesn't 16 so this is just the latest escalation of the role of the crisis is by far the most serious violation of the principles of judicial independence we have seen since the crisis began 4 years ago some people including myself are now speaking of a defective products it within the next few weeks so if you have enjoyed talking about drugs it in fact. i think 2020 we're going to talk more and more about the fact of politics that the de facto because essentially poland is going to remain a full member of the use not going to trigger the in famous article 50 per century as far as the judicial branch of poland what we're looking at is the dismantlement of judicial independence in poland and this is simply not compatible remember ship
5:39 am
of the e.u. so what does brussels too so the brussels has sued poland already twice has won twice so there is a 3rd case pending and there are plenty of new cases also originating from puerto scott so we have a total i think of the 15 pending cases before the european court of justice so it's going to get worse i'm afraid. now for the 1st time in nearly 9 here is humanitarian aid has reached a rebel held area and saddam's blue nonstate it comes as the transitional government which was sworn in in august holds talks with various armed groups to end years of fighting about morgan reports from yeah bullis. when she heard that aid would be arriving in the outpost in blue nile state them says she walked for more than 8 hours to queue for it after more than 80 years the area controlled by sudanese rebels known as the sudan's people liberation movement north is finally receiving humanitarian aid and that i did not want to miss out as well i get mad
5:40 am
there's no food most of the time and because of the constant bombardment in the 1st years of the war a lot of terrible things happened they didn't care where their bombs were being dropped on people farms or livestock some of us fled to ethiopia but i could go because i didn't want to leave my home and become a refugee. the war between sudan's government and the s.p.l. and north erupted after the government refused to allow the states of south kordofan and blue nile a referendum on whether to be part of sudan or the newly created south sudan as part of a 2005 peace deal the s.p.l. and north also accuse the government of impeding democracy. the united nations says more than 2000000 people have been affected by the conflict with more than have a 1000000 displaced several rounds of peace talks between the s.p.l. and north and the previous government of ahmed rashid collapsed when they failed to agree on many issues including humanitarian access. since the was also more than a series ago yeah boss has been cut off from the military tens of thousands of
5:41 am
people but they bring also but many remain behind what missing the horrors of the civil war now with is coming in for the 1st time they're waiting to speak after all of these years things are really starting to change the. most trouble held areas in the country are nearly impossible to access from the capital hurts whom so dan's new transitional government which is in talks with armed groups including the s.p.l. and north change that in december allowing aid workers to head in for the 1st time a major day a great breakthrough in an area that has not received the help that is needed none at all from the united nations in over 9 years and when you compound the war the ton fully with the flooding that just take place these people are in need of been extremely impressed with the openness and the willingness of the leadership of others to do what we need to do without getting in the way and they have given us
5:42 am

of former president joseph kabila khatami was forced into exile after defecting from the then voting party in 2015 the following year he was convicted of property for what and barred from returning and running in the 2018 presidential vote but that ruling was overturned in april allowing him to return home dutch activists have won a legal battle for front government leaders to take fast action on climate change climate activists have been celebrating the verdict which forces the government to reduce emissions to at least 25 percent below 1990 levels by the end of next year the court said the government had a duty to protect its citizens from the effects of climate change the netherlands is one of the biggest polluters in europe now dennis then because the lawyer at the again the foundation which brought the case against the dutch government and he says that it's clear the country must take action on climate change well obviously they have a responsibility but the difference with governments is that since 1902 they have
5:44 am
acknowledged that they have a response they have the responsibility over this problem that they have a responsibility of all the emissions in their territory since the climate treaty in 1902 they have adopted the responsibility embarrassed again in 2015 they said we are responsible for this problem we need to make sure that these emissions are going to not lead us to a warming about 1.5 degrees and we have human rights which are the basis of this case that all of the states to do to take these actions. now a $16000000000.00 plan to tackle climate change has cleared its final hurdle in germany's parliament after months of negotiations and that's a relief for chancellor angela merkel who's been facing growing pressure to take action the plan includes increasing taxes on fly producing the price of train tickets germany has pledged to cut carbon emissions by 55 percent from 1919 levels
5:45 am
over the next decade but opposition parties and scientists have a change of style go far enough well correspondent dominic cain is in bel-air and he explains how the plan will impact germans. the train arriving on this platform could soon be a little bit cheaper to travel and that's one of the main effects of the climate change package here in germany that's just been agreed upon by both houses of parliament so what does it mean it means that passengers on it as it expresses well they'll soon be paying a little bit less but the payoff is that people flying air passengers might soon find that it gets slightly more expensive and over all this is part of the german government's attempt to as it were to reduce its carbon emissions to 55 percent of the 1990 levels it's going to cost almost $60000000000.00 for germany to bring this through the government had hoped it would go through sooner but there had been a bit of
5:46 am
a problem because the green party the environmentally friendly party had opposed some of the proposals the government had agreed upon but they decided they did not want to be seen to be getting in the way of a policy which is meant to speed up slowing down climate change and so that's why train journeys such as these will soon get to be a little bit cheaper the other thing here though is that the cost of this well it may well be borne by big business because polluting business enterprises which contribute c o 2 to the atmosphere will find themselves being fined and the green party wanted the fines. imposed on businesses to be higher they appear to be getting their way the question will be for the government for the greens for everyone in germany do they accept the sort of package that this is does it go far enough that is for later on for now at least that means passengers on trains such as these well the journeys will soon be a little bit cheaper. now boeing has suffered and not the setback of this time and
