11:02 am
russia's president vladimir putin is warning israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu against rising tensions. well in a few moments same bus ravi will join us live from the iranian capital tehran but first let's cross to him and khan in west jerusalem imran so what do we expect to see out of israel today. well what we expect to see all two very significant meetings now one of them is actually a scheduled meeting is the meeting of the cabinets but the focus clearly will be on what to do about the situation in syria and likely to try and get of sw very strong message to the russians about the iranian involvement with in syria often that we're likely to see a security cabinet meeting now that's going to be also very crucial because that's will decide the strategy what to do next now all sides are trying to avoid a massive escalation all of this conflict we spoke to the israeli army in the last
11:03 am
hour we also them what was going on with the operation how many targets inside syria but they hit they declined to comment however lots of people on social media form a soldiers form of senior military officials are saying that this is the largest operation to get syrian air defense targets since the lebanon war in one thousand nine hundred eighty two so clearly very significant movement still going on today still hitting targets inside syria those syrian air defenses units that they using now what i'm also hearing which is very interesting is that the is ratings are wondering how one of that jet fighters was actually shot down by those pilots ejected thirty years now they've managed to fly sorties into various arab countries with almost impunity and for the last seven years without any kind of attack it's led to a downing of an airplane from syrian air defenses unit so there's an inquiry likely
11:04 am
to happen i can't confirm that a moment but certainly lots of people asking questions here in israel about how this will happen but clearly one of the big things that's going to be discussed is the message to russia israel is using tool three different fronts to get that message across it's written to the united nations security council also getting them to condemn iran these actions also the moscow. is also speaking saying that it's important that the russians understand that iran cannot have a role to play in syria at all or imran khan there in west jerusalem or thank you let's cross over now to the iranian capital tehran and talk to zain but ravi saying so israel and the u.s. have been quick to blame iran for this incident so what's the view there from tehran. well since the syrian conflict began iran has always maintained that it is in the country to support the government the legitimate government as they see it of president bashar al assad at the behest of
11:05 am
that government and that their forces are there on invitation and for iranian leaders the real narrative of what's been happening is that israel violated syrian sovereignty israel violated syrian airspace and provoking syria's reaction so as far as they're concerned the distortion of the ground reality is what israel is doing by saying that iran encroached with a drone into israeli airspace they called it a ridiculous lie not their serving of a response and just in the last hour the secretary of iran's national security council is shown carney said that yet another lie by israel is that it hit iranian bases inside syria and the iranian leadership here is saying that the reason iran is that israel is distorting this ground reality is to turn a public opinion against iran as it continues to fight opposition forces and hunt down islamic state fighters inside syria indeed that is what the syrian government
11:06 am
said the trone was doing it was a surveillance drone as far as they're concerned and now we have seen iran make a bold and defiant comments in the past with regards to what they see as israeli aggression against iran and iran's allies in the region and they said all along that iran is what the syria has said that they will respond with an appropriate measure at an appropriate time and it seems now that they're backing up that rhetoric with firepower the same thank you well as we've been saying washington has backed is random blamed iran for the escalation my camera has more. well despite iran's denial that it was responsible for the drone incursion the state department appears to be convinced that iran is to blame for this round of combat that we've seen emerge over the course of this particular day a state department spokesperson has released
11:07 am
a statement saying and i quote iran's calculated escalation of threat and its ambition to project power places the entire region at risk from she says yemen to lebanon once again from state department we also heard that israel has a right to defend itself a similar statement coming out of the pentagon which also stated very clearly that u.s. played no role whatsoever in israel's combat operations at targets within syria so from the u.s. what you are hearing support for israel not surprising but at the same time there appears to be a degree of concern about the further ramifications of the conflict that's emerged in the course of the day. eleven turkish soldiers have been killed in northern syria a german operation against kurdish fighters two of them died when their helicopter was downed in the ass for me this video is said to show the aircraft moments before it was hit kurdish led syrian democratic forces say its fighters shot it down the turkey says the cause is still unclear it's been the deadliest day of fighting

11:20 am
neck at the time of the arrest. i think it's extremely important to be here today because the situation in italy seems very complicated so i don't think that politicians take enough notice of the phenomenon of the resurgence of fascism and. many are warning that anti immigration rhetoric has become part of the national dialogue they fear this sentiment will influence the upcoming national elections on march fourth others warned that racism is nothing new. for me i have been faced with the problems of racism here since my primary school days they were children who called me a negro it is far from bring a phenomenon that dates from yesterday or the day before with the shooting that took place there has always been racism here. the shooting in must follow the arrest of a nigerian man in connection with them. murder of an eighteen year old italian woman. while many say politicians need to do something about the resurgence of the

far right others believe it's inaccurate to lump all far right parties and politicians with the same label i believe d. far right and in general does entire idea of fascist revival we need to shouldn't be exaggerated the far right is definitely quite strong now adays in any city but i believe especially abroad the reason a tendency to generalize and put a lot of parties into the same box which is not necessary the case. far right candidates call the influx of refugees out of control immigration. but italy's prime minister has told us people hatred and violence will not be able to divide them cold shoulder john al jazeera. the charity oxfam has apologized to some of that stuff members in haiti were accused of sexual misconduct three of them resigned and four sucked the u.k.
