and we now know the full team straight to the semifinals of the confederations cup germany wins and chile doing off to progress in their deciding games we'll have a report from our special studio in sochi. thank you for joining us for the weekly news round up here at aussie international i'm kate. founder start with some breaking news this hour syria says its all me positions in the golan heights have once again come under fire from israel it's the second strike in the area in two days and to get more on this story we cannot cross live to our middle east correspondent paula slayer. hi there paula so what more do we know at this stage. well at this stage the syrian military has issued a statement regarding israeli strikes on the golan heights it says that the israeli
air force attacked syrian army positions twice since saturday and that it all happened while the army was in the midst of a battle with. the illness front has stepped up its offensive in the golan heights and these strikes are we have of course hoped for a front as well as israeli army goes they have confirmed that they targeted syrian army positions in the golan heights because the i.d.f. says some of the projectiles from the fighting between the sides landed on the israeli side of the golan heights the israeli army also describes the projectiles as air and so it says that it understands that they weren't targeting israel but insists that israel's position is if any projectiles a land to a tree they will be a price to pay these really prime minister benjamin netanyahu had this to say at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting. policy is clear we will not tolerate any spillover or tricky whatsoever nor the morses nor
rockets from any front we will strongly to any attack on our territory our citizens. now talking to some people on the ground here what is being expressed is the view that the syrian army needs to pay the price for whatever happens in the golan heights even if the syrian army is fighting terrorists israel still continues to hit their positions. thank you very much indeed that's our tease paula sleep in tel aviv well. and for more on this cross live to political commentator john bolton is jumping you very much indeed for joining us late this evening well as we heard there from from what paula was saying syria says it's fighting against terrorists in the golan heights and errant missiles hit israel the israeli response is acceptable. well it's never acceptable to violate international law by firing across an international border. neither the action of
the syrian military if it crossed the the israeli border nor the israeli response and neither action would be considered illegal under international law but the point is that one act was apparently an in excuse me. one act was apparently unintentional and the other was intentional and an intentional violation of internal international law is always more serious than an unintentional one well let's also look at some of the consequences of this one for what we gather so far this is only reported so far the syrian missiles didn't kill or injure anyone and yet from what we gather i say reported the israeli responses claim to have killed two syrian soldiers you think by definition then israel is being heavy handed. obviously first of all the israeli act is intentional and second of all the damage the human damage first of all the deaths and the material damage is not proportional so we have
a situation in which israel has violated the law once in terms of intent and it is second sense in a disproportionate manner which is also considered a legal violation let's also look at the wider implications here israel's largest said on the sidelines when it comes to the syrian civil war do you think these retaliatory strikes indicate that it's about to become more involved or even fully in broiled. well you know what we have taking place here is we see we see the united states getting sucked into the battle with the shoot down of the fighter airplane and we see israel getting sucked into the battle and obviously this is a very common tactic for terrorist groups like al nusra if you can suck in a major power to serve your purpose is more power to you so the terrorists here if they are intelligent would locate their forces as close as humanly possible even one centimeter away from the israeli border to draw fire from the syrian forces the
syrian forces if they hit the terrorists will certainly have some blow over into the israeli side thereby drawing israel into the war that is the ideal scenario for any terrorist group and if israel falls for that there are only two possible explanations a israel is somehow connected to a new syria or looser is running a political policy which is much much more intelligent than the israeli one but let's also talk about the situation in terms of diplomacy will frankly there isn't any other them diplomatic relations between the two countries he does that suggest therefore the only a military response can settle any argument between them. well you know there's always there's always an opportunity to avoid military response and the question is is there good will and there does not seem to be any goodwill on the part of israel with respect to the government of syria and it is the legal
government of syria and you know. there is no excuse for this kind of activity there is no justification of it in the world court or in international law and it cannot lead to anything good it's a mistake and it's a grievous mistake on the part of israel it will only embolden the terrorists to try to draw more fire near the israeli border this is the only certain result all the rest is up in the air and it will have to leave it there john bosnich political commentator thank you very much and if your thoughts thank you thank you. hundreds of people in london have been evacuated from their tower block homes that made fears of a repeat of the grand felt how disaster more than thirty blocks of failed fire safety tests across the country well the ground fell tower disaster britain's deadliest fire in over a century claimed at least seventy nine lives the fire was only put out more than
twenty four hours later and prime minister to resign may admit it a government haven't done enough to respond to the disaster but her apology didn't stop hundreds of protesters from across the u.k. demanding justice for the victims. the support on the ground for families in the initial hours was not good enough people were left without belongings without ribs over their heads without even basic information about what happened what they should do that was a failure of the state local and national to help people when they needed it most as prime minister i apologize for that. and as prime minister i've taken responsibility for doing what we can to put things right here i think. when they are in. my life when they. make choices with god. was
a key thing after this massacre that i could just by people and everyone's going to shout serious say you know this is mean justice and lois needs to be trying and why is the house so getting away with this sort of. the fact. the i was there it was really was treated like that what do you think to to reason my should take all the blame for this we all introduce remote through all those people in the house of parliament and got a good part to play for us. exams of the grand felt how a blaze may have been exposed not only to smoke and fire but also to a highly toxic gas that's according to expert analysis all the tragedy hospital report said they were treating three people from cyanide poisoning one of the most dangerous forms an expert has claimed the insulation boards used on the tower produce a deadly gas when burned and the crown dating which was highly flammable material
used on the outside of the building is also under scrutiny. well to resume a house ordered a public inquiry into the tragedy had pledged an initial five million pounds to help the victims anastasio a church you know went out in london asking whether the u.k. should rethink its spending priorities but british government is spending this money on certain things which speaks to think they're spending. with thirteen billion to the n.h.s. social care as then the seventy million user to social care that it is what they're spending on that. spending three hundred seventy maybe it only for thoughts insight jory care this is how much is going to the survivors of radical. left is actually shocking when you see like. five then yeah. yeah. that's the fun to go out but they can spend three hundred seventy on the
bottom in politics this book impose really need refurbished really. still says it's shameful shameful. well this week the u.k. also marked one year since it voted to leave the european union though the actual divorce talks about me just go away the referendum results caused a political ass quake the off the shelf which is still being felt today. i will move a motion in the house of commons calling for a general election to be held on the eighth of june theresa may want to do strengthen her hand embrace the negotiations with european leaders she needed a mandate for her standing in the pages divorced from the e.u. breaks it directs it for two reasons i breaks it means giving up access to the e.u. single market and customs union looking full control of u.k. borders compromise on the free movement of people but instead of a mandate to reason he got
a hung parliament white criticism of her breaks that position no deal for britain is better than a deal or no deal would be a very very radical approach now with britain needs to work counts and you break the plan which is not easy but the divided parliament the democratic unionist party which may hope to form a majority with opposes the heartbreaks it well the u.k. position leaves more questions than answers some fear the negotiations which have already started will bring little progress through the wait for second breaks that referendum not likely even labor are resigned to this breakup labor except respects the result the referee there won't be bluffing will come leaving. the conditions of the divorce agreements are now even more uncertain than ever and things he did go from the normal messy to fix. well the process officially started when brussels received a letter from to resume a fine
a declaring the intention to leave the bloc many pressure such as this still strongly oppose the decision once again express their anger on friday. takes us through the twists and turns of britain's rocky road to the breakup it was a very changed the course of history the forty eight percent who voted to stay were outraged although the others they were delighted the show has risen. to become a national bank holiday we will call it a. night your firearms may have been jumping the gun his so-called independence day is still a distant prospect the referendum result killed the political career of david cameron and allowed home secretary to resume aid to step up to the plate in the run up to the vote she had been
a quiet remain but the desire to lead post brags that britain forced her to reconsider her position rexx it means bricks and we're going to make a success of it a year down the line that sounds like something from an alternate universe considering that the reason made called an election in order to strengthen her hand in the braggs it talks but ended up free falling in the polls and losing her parliamentary majority her atrocious result meant the politically weakened government limped into negotiations with brussels earlier this week and bear in mind these talks were never going to be a walk in the park. but it. can be concluded quickly. threats against aggression has been issued by european politicians commission was trying to bully the british people arguments over
whether the u.k. would pave the e.u.'s one hundred billion reg's it bill guaranteeing the rights of he uses isn't in the u k. and who would get custody of gibraltar what thorny issues but there is aroused took a back seat when britain was hit by a wave of terror for terror attacks in the space of just three months to be precise and many britons held to reason may direct the responsible because she'd been head of the home office six years before becoming prime minister. and with all the security and political chaos few people even notice that earlier this week briggs it negotiations officially kicked off but not in the way that london would have hoped the british government's already been accused of caving into brussels over the brags that schedule and opinion polls now show that if the country got to vote
again it would reject leaving the e.u. so just like two reason may the plan for braggs it went from strong and stable so weak and within the space of just one yeah. the cia chief now claims russian meddling has been going on for longer than previously thought that story coming up after the short break. what holds if you should. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. we still want. you to be right for
us which is what. three of the four people. interested in the war. here's what people have been saying about rejected and that it was there was actually just full on awesome power the only show i go out of my way to launch you know a lot of the really packs a punch oh please yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than the blue. sea people you've never heard of love redacted the next president of the world bank so very. seriously send us an e-mail. welcome back cia chief mike bump a.o. claims russian meddling in the us presidential elections was just a part of
a decades long efforts to undermine american democracy russia has always denied any interference while pompei a statement comes in his first t.v. interview after taking up the post of cia director in january. i can't talk about the details of the intelligence but we have the intelligence committee has said that this election was meddled with by the russians in a way that is frankly not particular original they've been doing this for an awfully long time and we are decades into the russians trying to undermine american democracy i think a lot of actors tried to exercise influence in the in the election i don't know the specifics of what russia may or may not have done and what other nations may or may not have done i think the facts are clear in the public domain that the democratic national committee try it may well have rigged the primary for hillary and did their level best to tip the scales in the elections to bigger issue is the degree to which the obama administration seems likely to have tried to tip the hand
heavily in the favor of installing hillary clinton as a successor to barack obama that's something that really needs to be investigated when we won a recent poll shows sixty four percent of voters believe investigations into president on russia are hurting the country while fifty six percent feel it's time congress and the media shifted their attention to the issues journalist and writer charles alltel again believes there are far more to address. i think you know what you're seeing is that the american people are far far more concerned about the degree to which jobs are not coming fast enough back to our country at good high paying wages with benefits that's what we really care about and when we think about our foreign issues i think people think deeply about the issues should look back over the last eight years the last sixteen years to think about you know why it makes zero sense to reflexive we go after russia at every turn when in fact our interests america's interests and russia's our forward hosea line through simply
any conflict portions of the world and i think it would be if behoove the truck of ministration and the putin administration to try to ignore this sniping and stay focused on the core issues where we do share common interests. now the final two group games of the twenty seventeen confederations cup have decided the last two semifinalists chile and germany are through i will now face portugal i'm mexico in the last four and with more here neil harvey and stan collymore in sochi. welcome to sochi the semifinal lineup is now complete let's cut to the chase is germany and it is chile who will complete the final four alongside me stan collymore you made some predictions earlier alongside nica the bear come on come on
let's let's go a little bit more of course paul the octopus back in germany in two thousand and six was very good book nick of the batteries get in there germany as we expected when the first game you both thought i was going to happen those of us who did germany three cameroon one very good camera work in the first off apply very aggressive very youthful with the german quality kind through carry him there in by yourself annoying piece first appearance of a conflict called first goal in two months were not watch out for the straw in the . twelve months he will be in the germany squad. for the world when the germans come back here to school to goals the first time a german high school two goals in the confederations cup and then of course you're the guy in chile against australia almost completely wrong surely you would have been fairly comfortably a very strong chilean saw it against an australian side which is very useful for this exchange maybe for the game and a really creditable draw from the australians let's just you know play some too cynical a bear went from australia was on the cards for the first forty five minutes so if
or was a better mom of them not all of germany. still against chile following germany could stay in sochi they wanted to be pleased with being a chilly no west philly today's baking hot and such and i think it's quite warm in moscow as well isn't it emily says a correspondent at the sponsor corrino it was an intense and exciting game and the results are in a one one draw between chile an australia and this means chile will now at dance to the semifinals and just like in sochi moscow been blessed with great weather today and here despite text a.t.m. the atmosphere really couldn't be any better right before the game started in the entrance out of the engines the stadium behind me it was literally jam packed with fans from both teams out there is music playing and drum beats are playing also and fans are just waving the flags and cheering on both teams and as far as when the sand there is as many as two thousand fans who flew all the way from chile right here in russia to be a part of the twenty seven thousand confederations cup so they can cheer on their national team and looks like their predictions came true this for the game started
they told me they think chile would go straight to the semifinals no doubt here's what they told me. we are both for now the two the national team and we have a very nice team always going to win. support to the semifinals that's how. i know. it's. so the semifinal matches will take place on the twenty eighth and twenty nine. and it will be portugal against chile and journey against mexico and for sure he will be keeping a close eye on those matches ok let's bring in now mon both of these former australian aston villa's so many of the chelsea seven of the teams he playful and you know what he's an old polo team and he also let you speak to him first balls are what's happening sung. good evening meal good evening
stan good to hear from you mate. great to hear from you you obviously watch the game you've been in russia for the last couple of days let's start with the football for us would you dare say a very creditable australian performance today saki their best performance on the today new manager for a very long time that was better than chilly in the first half and they bet more more than match them during the second half as well chile to be fair stepped it up a good second half and equalized rodriguez but overall a strike can feel very very proud of their performance there for a while there it looked as though the great upset was on obviously a lot of people especially in the west of australia very very concerned about traveling anywhere these days and i was different to come in here but i was wonderfully surprised that i live here in moscow which is. absolutely mobbed the city the culture the architecture everything good bad is just first class but st petersburg i was there for nearly a week and that was absolutely outstanding as well and the main concern is that obviously people are asking me about it in australia is number one the security and
security second set on it's absolutely world class the food has been fantastic the people have been very very helpful and so many people are now in a strain now dying to tommy for the world cup there's only one thing that i think is wrong is that the taxi drivers drive too fast. coming up next here on our team international a documentary about the hidden victims of the chemical industry. it's called the feeling of something. everyone in the world should experience. and you get it out of the old the old. the old according to just.
welcome to my world come along for the ride. i'm going to do just that and you're watching hard. swashing. i do not know if the russian state cock into john podesta emails and gave them to wiki leaks but i do know barack obama's director of national intelligence has not provided credible to support his claims of russia i also know he perjured himself in a senate hearing planned three months before the revelations provided by edward snowden he denied to be n.s.a. was carrying out wholesale surveillance of the us. the hyperventilating corporate media has once again proved to be an echo chamber for government claims that cannot
be verified you would have thought they would have learned something after serving as george w. bush's useful idiots in the lead up to the invasion of iraq. it is vitally important that the press remains rooted in a fact based universe especially when we enter an era when truth and fiction are becoming indistinguishable. interests.
