confirms israeli forces have once again targeted their positions in the disputed territory of the golan heights as the second such strike on the area in two days. for the british prime minister she faces calls to resign over her. tapes in the streets. and we now know the foreign teams through to the semifinalists of the confederation of many when chile do enough to progress in their deciding games we'll have a report from our special studio. coming
to you live from moscow you're watching our international this us the week. serious as us army positions of the golan heights have once again come under fire from israel as the second strong link in the area in today's middle east correspondent all this year as more well the tsunami has issued a statement in which it has accused the israelis of 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 hoping. they have been to such israeli attacks since saturday as for the israeli side israeli air force has acknowledged conducting those strikes it say is that it is a risk. funds to projectiles that landed on the israeli side of the going on
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 i don't know if targeting israel but land on his radio territory by mistake to draw. 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 citizens. now talking to some people on the ground 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. following u.s. diplomat. that israel might have another motive for the strikes it's one
thing for the israelis to say that they will protect their border that's leave because side of the question what the status of the golan is the bigger question is this is there is there something more behind this then just the israelis responding to what they admit is an errant lending of syrian missiles on their side of the border the anti-government forces in syria are on the ropes that the that the basque government is making great gains that there has concern to these terrorist forces by as we know saudi arabia qatar and these other countries with the silent backing of israel and of course the participation of the united states are in big trouble and for these really what that means is and they are quite clear about this that they don't want to see forces allied with iran on their border particularly hizbollah and i think that's the real concern that they're expressing through this action whether it will grow into something major i don't know. syria has also recently been headed by the u.s.
on monday moscow said that it was holding hope aeration with washington over syria after the call ition showdown a syrian fighter plane the day before the pentagon earlier claimed it had shot down the syringe in self-defense after it bomb two u.s. backed militants but damascus says that its plane was attacking islamic state this irin jet was down near the i still held city of raka which is currently under siege by us back to local troops is not the first time the u.s. led coalition has targeted. the war zone last month and south and syria the college and also bombed pro-government forces several times sure accusing them of violating so-called confliction zones or to. take a closer look at. 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 lin's going on here 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 of 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 further on tuesday after the u.s. led coalition shot down another syrian aircraft an unmanned drone the pentagon claimed they armed drone had been advancing on u.s. backed forces and south and syria once again the collison said that the downing of the aircraft was smart of ated to buy self defense while analysts war in that washington is playing a dangerous game. the americans react to the syrian threat as a source who are they trying to assert. 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 enemy skies with impunity and they feel threatened but i would 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 won 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 think is really very anti russian 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 scenarios for the future of advancements on the ground in syria are accompanied by anger at home and washington's latest military moves president tromso administration is facing criticism for breaking its lacson vows to scale back for intervention. this is illegal war at this point then there's a practical question the practical question is doing anything you want killing every perceived enemy in every perceived leader of chieftain of people and so misbegotten village is it helping trump made it clear that defeating terrorism and putting an end to the trend of u.s. interventions in the middle east were top priorities so he opted for granting more
power to the military what i do is i authorized by military we have the greatest military in the world ok but if it helps eradicate eisel what's the problem well first we have the u.s. training and giving arms to a bunch of anti-government forces one of them the new syrian army would really like to topple assad then there's the syrian democratic forces largely consisting of kurds who would really love to grab more power from the government and eventually become independent so once i suppose finish we will have fully trained armed to the teeth forces controlling significant chunks of syrian territory partially hostile to the government what could possibly go wrong so it seems in this effort to defeat the u.s. could in fact be fanning new hotbed the tension if you like washington has a case of tunnel vision trying to solve only one problem without seeing the bigger picture sound familiar and should iraq anyone but history teaches us nothing clearly not even past tweets such as this one from donald trump to then president obama in two thousand and thirteen he warned that nothing good would come to the
u.s. from attacking syria apparently hindsight isn't twenty twenty one to get to the white house. r.t. washington d.c. are do you got a reaction from telsey democratic member of congress from how i will use that washington needs to change its policy towards the middle east. i have stated for years and our country has been waging an illegal counterproductive regime change war in syria we should be focused on those who pose a threat isis al qaeda and other terrorist groups and we should and our u.s. interventionist regime change war policies that have caused so much suffering for the people in these countries and it has also been counterproductive to our security. to other news now a tourist boat where the more than one hundred fifty people on board in colombia the incident happened on a reserve. pay and the northwest of the country they had of the region's disaster
response agency says that nine people have died in the accident with twenty eight still missing and those rescued told local newspapers the boat was overloaded and no one had lifejackets and rescue operation is underway and we'll bring you the days to this story as we get them. hundreds of people in london have been evacuated from their tower block homes fears of a repeat of the grand felt tower disaster more than thirty blocks out failed fire safety talent across the country the ground fell tower disaster britain's deadliest day in over a century claimed at least seventy nine lives was only put out more than twenty four hours later and prime minister to resume a admitted her government hadn'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 even basic information about what had happened what they should do it was a failure of the state local national and. 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 and i think that. when they lie and. lie like when they. make. the. 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 los needs to be trying. to have
a soul getting away with this. space back. there it was really. like that too to reason to blame for these. people not house of parliament. to play for. exams of the ground for our blaze may have been exposed not only does small gun fire but also to our highly toxic gas that's according to experts analysis of the treasurer and hospital report said that they were treating three people for cyanide poisoning an expert has claimed that the. boards used on the tower produce a deadly gas one bird and the clothing which was highly flammable material used on the outside of the building is also on to scrutiny. this week in the u.k.
also marked one year since it voted to leave the european union the actual divorce stocks have only just got underway they were for a number of zod caused a political earthquake the aftershocks of which 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 negotiations with european leaders she needed a mandate for her standing in the u.k. is divorced 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 is stead of a mandate to reason got a hung parliament white criticism of her breaks that position no deal for but it's better than a deal or no deal would be
a very very bad out for now will britain needs to work out a new breakthrough plan which is not easy with a divided parliament but 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 involved 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 to new takes. the process of actually started one brussels received a letter from to resign me finally declaring the intention to leave the block many british citizens still strongly oppose that decision and some once again express
their anger. or do you call it takes us through the twists and turns of rocky road so the break up. 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 of firearms may have been jumping the gun that 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 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 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 regs it vill guaranteeing the rights of
citizens in the u.k. and who would get custody of gibraltar 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 resume a direct plea 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 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 you 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 director michael impaled claims that russian modeling in the u.s. presidential elections was just a part of a decades long to undermine american democracy or has always denied any interference from paris statement comes and has sense of you as you're taking up the post of cia director. 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 riginal 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 meanwhile a recent poll shows sixty four percent of voters in the investigation centered president trump and russia a hurricane the country while fifty six percent feel that it's time congress and the media shifted their attention to other issues during a lesson rider char's or talbot he said there are far more urgent issues 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 a 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 interest in america's interest in russia is our forward hosea line through you know plenty of conflict portions of the world and i think it would be if behoove the trouble of ministration in the putin administration to try to ignore this sniping and stay focused on the core issues where we do share common interests. as college and forces advance on rucka islamic states defacto capital the u.n. secretary general has expressed concern over the plight of civilians trapped in the say when setting in sas they think is threats from every direction the
secretary general is particularly concerned about the perilous situation for civilians in iraq who are trapped and face threats from every direction the secretary general made an urgent appeal to all those conducting military operations in syria to do everything in their power to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure. according to u.n. estimates. alone at least three hundred civilians have lost their lives as a result of u.s. led coalition airstrikes but the coalition itself admits fewer than five hundred deaths or for it three years of its military campaign as also reported it employs just seven full time investigators to monitor or civilian casualties however a little progress has so far been made that i knew little about i knew the fish for what they are judgment of my family and i know much about the model. of the rational you may get a medal but that. hasn't but you were born with the image that i showed you
a little bit isn't a bit of a novelty the has been and the dome that has you had the fold and then has become a folder on my digital clock. when has it when there's a. little blue. digit dim she. could. well i went to the streets of new york to find out just how much americans know about the situation and the. bit about what's happening in iraq i know. now. you heard about civilian casualties in iraq oh. i had think i have heard something about it we have a video someone talking about it here is the output of when the war planes come they strike multi-storied buildings where the terrorists are but they're also
civilians in that house how can the plane strike then more civilians die than terrorists so civilians were either helping eisel or being used as hostages or as protection against u.s. armed forces so that they wouldn't attack that house in order to get to ice so how are we supposed to take care of that and not kill innocent civilians if indeed they're innocent secretary of defense matters he says that two billion cattle thieves are a fact of life in this sort of situation do you agree with that oh no not at all you know all life is precious now and nobody dies really but that's the line they use always and it's in reality there will always be some civilian casualty but it shouldn't be if that life you know for someone sitting in a desk chair in washington to say that it's very difficult. you know i think it's a very delicate political situation some of the reports that have come out say that
more civilians have been killed than i still fighters but in surprise me at all especially because there is no they're wearing a badge says i'm i'm i says fighter right and there they have their breasts like civilian so how can you always tell me who's who's who and it's been a big thing of the friends in the military tell me like you have no idea who it is until like they're shooting at you now that this is a prize and they say that as many as three hundred civilians according to the u.n. have died since march. we i mean if if there's ten airstrikes a day that's treaty expected but again because i think they're making it a fact of life it's become normal it has become. six police officers have been injured in london now after a protest against police brutality devolved into class just four people have been arrested.
protesters tripped stones from walls and hurled the police and their cars as well as setting rubbish bins on fire in the scheme out in anger over the death of a black twenty five year old man after a traffic stop and a london possessors claims it was brutally beaten by police who died six days later and hospital carried banners reading matter and chanted slogans against. police ranks. the final two group games of the twenty seven thousand confederations cup i have to say that the last two semifinalists
chile and germany went through and will now face portugal and mexico and the last four with more here is no harvey and stan collymore and saatchi. welcome to the side before the lot of complete let's cut to the chase it's germany and it is chile who completes the final four alongside me stand. all the more you made some predictions earlier alongside nick come on come on let's let's see how we did because paul the octopus back in germany in two thousand and six was very good nick of the barry. germany as we expected when the first game you go through that was going to happen as of yesterday germany three cameroon one very good cameron were in the first off apply very aggressive very youthful but the german quality came through kerry during by t.s. off annoying he's first appearance of a conflict called first strong team of her and watch out for the straw in the next
twelve months he will be in the germany squad to play for the world cup when the germans come back here. the first time a german high school two goals in the confederations cup and then of course it again chile against australia almost completely wrong to actually would have this fairly comfortably a very strong chile and saw it against an australian side which is very useful for this exchange might be for the game and a really creditable draw from the australians let's just you know play some of the bear went from australia which was on the cards for the first forty five minutes so if i was a betting man and i'm not i would have german a still against chile following germany get to stay in sochi which is what they wanted to be placed with that ok let's bring in now mombasa it's former australia aston villa so many of the chelsea seven of the teams the playful and you know what is known paolo team and you're so let you speak so in first pos are what's happening sung. good evening meal good evening stan good to
hear very 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 first of all would dare say a very creditable australian performance today it's arguably their best performance on and today new manager for a very long time that was better than chilly in the first half and they they bet more and more the match them during the second half as well chile to be fair stepped up again second half and equalized rodriguez but i. a strike if you are very very proud of their performance there for a while there it looked as though the great opposite was on obviously a lot of people especially in the west of australia. very very concerned about traveling anywhere these days and different to coming 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 the security and security second set out it's absolutely world class the food has been fantastic the people have been very very helpful and so many people are now in australia now dying to meet for the world cup there's only one thing that i think is wrong is the. place just really allow you to appreciate what this place has to offer summer and winter destination if you want to go on holiday beautiful beaches at the same time will now need a noisy so i need to see how long that was going to try to get from the stadiums the arenas the sea level wonderful sea level attractions to the olympics. we went by taxi we went by train and quite so. this is a reason we're using to and like you so much it's very well noted i think we've been in the sun a bit too much i was thinking when funds come here we should show them the whole.
