duggar the one school. there in army confirms israeli forces have once again targeted their positions on the disputed territory of the golan heights as the second such strike on the area in two days. a tough week for the british prime minister she faces calls to resign over her handling of the grunfeld tower tragedy. protesters take to the streets. and we now know the ford team's through to the semifinals of the confederations cup. and she leads you enough to progress and they're deciding games
we'll have a report from our special studio and saatchi. coming to you live from moscow this is arts international and you're watching the week serious as army positions on the golan heights once again come under fire from israel as the second strike on the area in today's middle east correspondent paula sphere has more well the tsunami has issued a statement in which it has accused these rabies targeting syrian army positions on the side of the golan heights now the syrian army is currently fighting the terrorist group. and they say that the israeli attacks are only whole. paying
almost where they have been to such israeli attacks since saturday as for the israeli side the israeli air force has acknowledged conducting those strikes it says that it is in response to projectiles that landed on the israeli side of the golan heights of course the golan heights is disputed territory but the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu saying quite clearly at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting that they would be a price to pay even if such projectiles and and are not targeting israel but land on israeli territory by mistake. walk up policy is clear we will not tolerate any spillover or trickle whatsoever nor the morses nor rockets from any front we will respond 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. where it joins live now. director of think tank notices to discuss this issue more welcome to the program here in our to international so serious as that it's fighting against terrorists in the golan heights an errand do hit israel as the israeli response acceptable. but all. of the question must be on everyone's. right now. how. are you know really. a rebel. and there are ten to the government syrian army you know this could have easily been a case of a liaison officer telling them. what
their shelves are empty. or these are in the army react so boldly to do better by you know. justification and focusing on the real intent of the syrian of the israelis attack. on ice at such frequency. in a sense yes there is a bit of an offensive. against a city in the gulf of. these really is could be in a sense helping them but but this is not the case there is a wire there of you in the south of syria whereby the syrian army is making advances pushing the rebels into agreements of reconciliation there's been a meeting in the town of raw and. there has been some beam and they didn't hold out. the way things are going with won't be the rebels. not to feel
totally you know. outnumbered in everything they think they should not surrender so probably they're helping them launch this particular offensive against the city and probably beyond they succeed. governorate and telling them you know the syrian army isn't that strong as one might think. on this here in the south as didn't kill or anger anyone yeah the israeli response is claimed to have killed two syrian soldiers as israel being have a hand out here and what do you think. it's law is just that they want to send a message and then there is a why there are all these the trend here is that they want to undermine the syrian state at every attempt they can today for example the syrian president visited the central city of hama on the eight prayers over there and this has been widely acknowledged by the syrian public to be an indication of growing confidence in the
mosque is on this year and these are it is might want to say you know confidence what confidence look at how we can pick and choose whichever target we wish and they know for sure that the syrian army wouldn't pick up a fight with them and open another. you know. against a fearsome so they just want to undermine the syrian government is roe. are they being heavy handed or not you know this is they couldn't care less about who's killed or not. and there are things that we need to make sure as well here that this is not legally has frankly been a major and i probably wish to correct some of. the you know the report mentioning that the golan heights is disputed i'm going to take you through this to. you and security council resolutions two forty two three three this is occupied land the israelis are trying to say well this is disputed and we're trying
to be even handed and so on but this is not going to fool anyone pretty much you know. up to their neck in this in the syrian crisis and they're trying desperately to find themselves across the cease fire. nine hundred seventy three cease fire line of ninety seven to three across with the syrian army units or probably reinforced by some has bill lot of reigning in that's what they're trying to do and they're willing to do whatever it takes to you know prevent such a snobbery. all right thank you so much for your insight it is indeed a very complicated issue and that was them our walk of director of the think tank notice. there is also recently been hit by the u.s. on monday moscow's side it was holding call peroration with washington over syria. and shot down a syrian fighter plane the day before the pentagon there in
a claim to it had shot down the syrian jahan self-defense after a bomb to u.s. backed militants but damascus was that its plane was attacking islamic state the syrian chad was down near the i still held city of rocco which is under siege by u.s. backed local troops and it's not the first time the u.s. led coalition has targeted. last months in a rather callers and also bombed pro-government forces several times after accusing them of violating so-called de confliction zones or these and they say now we take a closer look at the latest round. the u.s. shoots down a syrian plane over syria in self-defense the only action that we have taken against pro regime forces in syria and they've been to specific incidents have been in self-defense let's imagine a random guy comes into your house with a gun and shoots your dog and then he's like it was just self-defense i wanted to
make sure there was no why lynds going on here d. as coalition speaking of deescalation after this self defense move the situation couldn't be worse russia now considers all u.s. led coalition planes in the area a potential targets and are tracking them all of this happened as both the u.s. and syrian government backed up by the russian air force were fighting isis in the stronghold of raka now washington and moscow have locked horns in syria again focus has shifted and isis is probably breathing a deep sigh of relief while watching syrian fighter jets crash in flames on the horizon good job superpowers you're not so super slick. tensions flared even third further on tuesday after the u.s. led coalition shutdown and other aircraft an unmanned drone the pentagon claimed
they armed drone had been an advancing on u.s. backed forces and south in syria once again the call is unsound that the downing of the aircraft was modeled by self defense while analyst war in that washington's playing a dangerous game did the americans react to syrian threats as a source or were they trying to assert it. over syria if you think about it really ever since the early one nine hundred ninety s. have been used to it being able to patrol will they go to the skies with impunity. but also the allies on the ground are threatened are we going towards you know more suspension of cooperation i think that's what some people in the u.s. administration actually want so they don't meaning they don't want to have cooperation between the u.s. and russia maybe not necessarily trump himself but i think you do have figures who are very. in the administration i think we are heading towards
a more suspension of cooperation and more hostility between moscow and washington which could mean some very bleak sonar is for the future. and now our breaking story coming from colombia a tourist boat where the one hundred fifty people on board as sunk on a reservoir the town of glad to pay and the north west of the country according to the had of the country's police three people have died in the accident. so those rescued told local newspapers that the boat was overloaded and no one had life jackets search and rescue operation is underway and we'll bring you more to this story as they come in. hundreds of people in london have been evacuated from their tower block home semaj fear is there for a repeat of the ground fell tower disaster more than thirty blogs have failed far
safety tast across the country the ground cell tower disaster britain's dandiest 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 admitted her government hadn't done enough to respond to the disaster 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. 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 but i think.
when they lie and. lie like when they. do thing after this massacre they could just by people and everyone's going to shout serious say you know this is mean justice and lois needs to be trying to me why is the household getting away with this. back. there. really was treated like that what do. we all introduce remote through all. people want. to play for the. victims of the tower blaze may have been exposed not only to smoke and fire but
also to highly toxic gas that's according to experts and alice's. hospital report said that they were treating three people for cyanide poisoning and that spirit has clean thing insulation boards used on the tower produces deadly gas when burned the cleansing which was highly flammable material used on the outside of the building is also under scrutiny this week the u.k. also marked one year since it voted to leave the european union the actual divorce talks have only just got underway the referendum result caused a political earthquake aftershocks of we sure are 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 have wanted to strengthen her hand embrace of negotiations with european leaders she needed a mandate for her standing in the u.k.'s divorce from the e.u.
breaks it corrects it for tourism a breaks it means giving up access to the e.u. single market and customs union taking full control of u.k. borders and no compromise on the free movement of people but instead of a mandate to reason got a hung parliament wide criticism of the breaks that position no deal for but is better than a deal now deal could be a very very bad out for now will britain needs to work counts and you break the plan which is not easy but the divided parliament the democratic unionist party which may hopes to form a majority with opposes a hard break sit well the u.k. position leaves more questions than answers some fear the negotiations which have already started will bring little progress so we wait for second breaks that referendum not likely even labor are resigned to piss break of labor except
respects the result of the referendum and woke me off you know that leaving. the conditions of the divorce agreements and now even more uncertain than ever and things you should go from the normal messy the fix. the process officially started one brussels received a letter from to resuming finally declaring the intention to leave the bloc many british citizens still strongly opposed this decision and some once again express their anger on friday argues poorly boy called takes us through the twists downturns 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 to show me his resume. that there. needs to become a national bank holiday we will call it a. night of 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 bricks 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 reason may hold an election in order to strengthen her hand in the braggs it talks but ended up refueling in the polls and losing her parliamentary majority atrocious result 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. can be concluded quickly. threats against oppression have 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 to resit bill guaranteeing the rights of he uses isn't is in the u.k. and who would get custody of gibraltar what we thought any 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 brings a bigger she ations 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 braggs its schedule and opinion polls now show that if the country got to vote again it would reject leaving you so just like to reason may the plan of a brags it went from strong and stable so weak and wildly within the space of just one and yeah. the cia's steve has accused russia of working to undermine american democracy for decades for more details on the story right after the short break.
it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. director my poem claims that russian meddling in the u.s. presidential elections was just poured off a decades long out for to undermine american democracy russia has always denied any interference statement comes in his first interview after taking up the post of cia director and 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 ritual 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 a 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. the fine on two group games of the twenty seventeen confederations cup have decided the last two semifinalist tele and germany went through and will now face portugal and mexico and the last four with more here is neil harvey and stan collymore and such a. welcome
to sort of see 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 nick 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 to the berries. 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 comer and were in the first off apply very aggressive very youthful but the german quality kind through karim during by test often. his first appearance of the conflict called first broke into molds were not watch out for the story in the next twelve months he will be in the german 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 do cynically bear went from australia which was on the cards for the first forty five minutes so it follows a pretty mum of them not all of germany. still against chile following germany get state what they want is the big please speaking of chile no west philly today's baking hot and such and i think it's quite warm in moscow as well isn't it emily sousa correspondent at the sponsor corrino it was an intense and exciting game and the results are in 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 tech stadium 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 before 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. going to. let's apply to the semifinals that's. right 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 are going to bring good now moment 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 boss 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 that start with a football for us would dare say a very creditable australian performance today soggy their best performance on the today new manager for a very long time that was better than chile in the first half and they 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 and 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 destroys 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 i know in australia now dawned on me for the world cup there's only one thing that i think is wrong is that the taxi drivers drive too fast. max our senior national will continue our rare look at life inside the country of north korea to stay with us.
what politicians do something to them. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president injury. or some want to be preached. to the right to be for us this is what before three of them all can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. i should. let's talk about blackness and the blues of being black. and always well in a big house don't know at least that's what i've been told but it was simply did we
in remains as such because we simply forgot i don't believe. being seen we've allowed them to rearrange their planes you've told us the sickness of trusting our enemy we became defaced. in that's what i call a lack of blackness or understanding the blues of being black. sheep the blues of being black should mandate that we attack knowing how when and what to do to come is simple in its natural as be beck is simply tat the feelin blue is black and blue . europe and the capacity to integrate. the refugees at the same time we cannot accept everybody that comes to overcome.
