1:04 pm
it looks as if when the aircraft was carrying out its initial descent to the war the toward its destination it was in the wrong position and and it hit mountains that looks like. the aircraft is a modern aircraft the aircraft height has been around for well it was initially manuf faction nine hundred eighty s. but this is a more recent version of it it operates all over the world it's a very good airplane side it's manufactured people going to a combination of italian and french design and manufacture so it's a very well tested airplane the. iran asmer on the domestic airline of iran well it flies a lot in iran is a very mountainous country it tries
1:05 pm
a lot in difficult terrain so it is more exposed to risk just by virtue of the kind of country that iran is is what the. the authorities in iran have to do is to find the black boxes the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder which will probably be working despite the fact that this crash was obviously quite. quite an impact. two palestinians have been found dead after an escalation in tension on the gaza israeli border it follows an explosion that injured four israeli soldiers in the area israel launched a series of ground of ass trikes on a number of sites in the southern gaza strip its military blames hamas for saturday's explosion several palestinians were injured in the israeli raids israel says that the dead palestinians were shot trying to cross the border. i think you
1:06 pm
are today's incident on the gaza strip border was severe we were responding appropriately i send my wishes for a quick recovery to the wounded let's go live now to our series but its worth is in west jerusalem but at the start by trying to clear up what exactly happened to these two palestinians who were killed aging we understand senator on the garza side that they were near the border for the fence the israelis say they were trying to cross now it's not unusual sometimes young man because of the desperate circumstances in gaza where there's hardly any work sometimes some of them try to cross over into israeli territory invariably they're caught by the israelis and often usually then eventually sent back to garza these young men it seems happened to be near the border at a time when there's been an incident earlier on this explosion on the border fence further down the border fence is injuring these israeli soldiers so because of that
1:07 pm
incident it made the whole area very tense and we understand that these book probably two civilian young men because if they had been members of any of the fighting groups in gaza those groups would have claimed them as their own while they haven't been claimed by any of the groups meaning they were civilians who were in the wrong place at the wrong time essentially because of the increased tension further down the board a train and there was some sort of projectile fired from gaza into israeli territory and that's what prompted the airstrikes what are we to make of the response. well it's been a very tense sort of period overnight there's been a large israeli assault on about eighteen different targets in gaza and there was this explosion on the border fence injuring those israeli soldiers they israel says there was a palestinian flag. stuck in the ground on the border fence and when the soldiers went to remove it removing that flag detonated an explosive and neat now
1:08 pm
israel later in the night hit eighteen different targets within gaza this is a very significant number of targets but hamas is let it be known via its egyptian mediators as let the israelis know that they do not want to see an escalation of violence in israel has said it does not want to see an escalation so while that's formally the positions of the two sides there is this always this risk of an accidental escalation that has been increased confrontations on the garda border border since donald trump declared a jerusalem recognized as a state capital of israel that have been increased confrontation since then there is the risk that if the constant if there's a major casualty number from the confrontation on either side then that could prompt an unintended escalation a tree or a bullet many thanks. in the western stuff barghouti is secretary general of the
1:09 pm
palestinian national initiative a former palestinian information minister he says that international pressure needs to be put on israel to end the violence. the only dissolution is to end occupation on the resolution is to end the system of apartheid and allow palestinians to finally be free let me remind you that during the last three months since mr trump declared his had already been position about jerusalem we had peaceful demonstrations taking place in the west bank and as a but these peaceful demonstrations were met with severe israeli violence no less than twelve people have been killed in gaza by israeli soldiers who were shooting at them while they were peaceful to be mistreating the same happened in the west bank we lost also more than twenty people so far with the israeli military gunfire and more than five thousand people have been injured during peaceful demonstrations so israel is attacking peaceful demonstrations the world does not do anything they do not pressure israel to stop using this terrible violence and then it is skillets
1:10 pm
and my word is that unless there is immediate international pressure to on israel to stop the use of violence and to end the siege on gaza we could see another horrible attack on gaza another horrible war that could take the lives of thousands of people including hundreds of good well it speaks against israel and who is a former israeli negotiator the oslo peace accords the former deputy foreign minister he joins us now live from tel aviv thanks for being with us what you make of what stuff stuff but good he was saying that. well the situation is very far from being stable and the last thing that i would like to do is to exchange accusations with my friend. most of the about who begins and whether it is in use or interest to kill palestinians out of the blue over there under the auspices or the umbrella of the demonstrations or for
1:11 pm
the fridays there was an attempt to kill some israeli soldiers that the bottom line the bottom line i believe is the need to hamas know the current israeli government. which i will pose but i can understand the picture in which to place its rule do not want to to have now and either round of violence because everybody understands that nobody will be happy at the end of this of the next round and the main question is how can one stab belies the current situation it should be if the hamas and i believe that hamas is not ready for peace with israel then something like the like. this week with israel could be the solution and there is a need for of the involvement of a third party in order to see to it that we will not be always at the mercy
1:12 pm
of the next trigger to open new violence because anything anything can become the trigger for an needed violin round between israel and hamas or between israel and the palestinians in the gaza and the one i mean the the world has to understand the situation the see the world for situation in gaza is horrible so the desperation move a week demonstrations can create a kind of violence that is when we not be able to dismiss and it will have to evaluate and we are better to this crazy and a needed round of violence on the one hand the current issue the current situation in gaza is being take taken care of and if on the other hand we talk
1:13 pm
seriously about the idea we might put an end to the current situation you heard our correspondent saying that these two young men who died overnight were possibly in the wrong place at the wrong time they were. kids who are looking desperate kids looking for a way out of gaza does israel accept that the conditions within gaza abound to lead to incidents of violence like this aimed at israel out of sheer frustration well this is a main issue in israel and it is the main issue in our media in the last weeks or even months the current situation in gaza a part of it. is tributed to do is when we left gaza are but still is in charge of the passage just part of it is on the shoulders of the palestinian authority which is not too happy to help us in gaza and hamas is the
1:14 pm
rule of gaza and part of it is egypt and the people themselves i mean the question is what the way they are a militant dies in the commodities which went to gaza will be used for the benefit of the people or for the benefit of the military groups them so you have quite many people to be blamed for the current situation but the bottom line is that the population gaza is suffering and the first of you money to early speaking it is something which is intolerable and the world should not tolerate it and on the other hand it is also a kind of excuse over a reason for violence this one is maybe against hamas against israel and against whoever but it may wrap and nobody knows when ok good to talk to somebody thanks to
1:15 pm
your c.p.l. in the. israel's prime minister says that iran is the greatest threats to the world's regiment and yahoo told the munich security conference in germany that iran's nuclear ambitions have brought the biddle east and israel closer together he vowed that israel will continue to prevent iran from establishing a puppet and presence in syria and will take action against it if necessary israel will not allow iran's regime to put a noose of terror around our neck. we will act without hesitation to defend ourselves. and we will act if necessary not just against iran's proxies that oratorical us but against iran. five out of munich al jazeera is there pretty strong words from this that you know who the russian what else did he have to say. he delivered a warning. to the international community and to the iranians that if the situation
1:16 pm
continues to escalate and that if the iranians continue to expand their influence by expanding their so-called land coleridge all form to hell and all the way to the border with israel then these rallies will have to retaliate targeting iran itself there was this moment of drama when he held a piece of the drone that was destroyed by the israeli army which is believed to be an iranian a drone saying headdress the rain saying that come and take it and there's this moment when he described the iranian foreign minister as the man who lies with eloquence saying that the iranians in fact will be given a golden opportunity during the two thousand and fifteen nuclear agreement to buy time and that ultimately they will assemble the acquired develop and assemble the key components of a nuclear bomb is just a matter of time before they can use it as saying that the israelis when not tolerate that there was this final moment when he showed a map with a very tiny little bit sparse and highlighted black saying that isolates being
1:17 pm
defeated by the same time we're facing a new danger which is what he described the radical shiite ideology this is a sentiment that many are concerned about because the international community over the last few years has been saying that we need to uphold the iranian nuclear deal it's crucial for stability it's crucial for the international community of france italy the e.u. many countries said this is something that needs to be meant taint if it collapses that could pave the. way for more instability and more violence in the region we will hear in a while ago. shortly from the iranian foreign minister zarif and he'll definitely hit back at the israeli prime minister and we will also hear from the saudi foreign minister adolescence away and later today question for the moment many thanks did national help out of the security conference in munich let's get some analysis now from the troops wearing who is associate professor in contemporary history at the
1:18 pm
middle east of the middle east at castle university he's with me here in the studio what is it with netanyahu that iran is the man obsessed. i think it's very interesting to see that but a minute in your home in every gathering. international gathering even even in inside israel you always defeat the serious threat to the region is iran not for get is bush. for the united nation last year and the before i think he has a major problem with iran simply. because of his is his character as the prime minister. he is the he is the prime minister who has done nothing actually to secure israeli comparing whether prime minister israelis were always engaged in wars and they are defending the state of israel he is the only prime minister who has no wars actually or or did not actually with any war in any kind of time and i think you strive to present iran as does it is through to mobilize
1:19 pm
international community towards iran investing on the moment where the. administration in washington actually playing the same game against iran this is all about the nuclear deal it is about to do through deal it is about a nuclear deal and i think we know that israel from the day one summer of two thousand and fifteen was against the deed and now as we know that time but mr nation is actually considering this as the worst deal ever and been a minute in you know who is capitalizing on. the moment by saying ok america again is the deal it's work with i'm with united states so we can do whatever is possible to in the outcome of the deal so this speech was aimed primarily at the trumpet ministration absolutely says that it iran is the greatest threat to the world face is he right is there anyone who disagrees with him yes of course see europeans i mean germany he was hosting this conference against what's been the military now
1:20 pm
saying france again if you care game is that most of you to be a nation again is the european nations european states that generally they consider the deal is a historical deal and they don't want to mess up with that deep maybe the only the only suggestion being presented by the french. president when he said you know there should be a revision to the deal where we can negotiate. a missile of iran and they try to see we know where this can go but part of this european states they are with the dean and they don't want to maintain the deal because they consider this deal so if so many people disagree with the israeli prime minister's point of view at what point does it become an embarrassment as to does he become a he had embarrassment i mean i mean does he care what other people i think i think he doesn't care he wants to do to deliver the message he wants to say to the public to the public in israel that he's delivering the message that iran is the main threat but he doesn't care i think one of the important point in that context that
1:21 pm
he's also scaping from what's happening inside israel he himself facing a lot of allegation of corruption i think he's trying to escape a bit of that by focusing on iran and other issues related to the foreign policy good to talk to you but you need pressure swearing. even the news hour from al-jazeera still to come on the program an emotional homecoming somali refugees once held captive in libya arrived back in mogadishu. the death of a politician and how it's putting kossovo on edge as the country marks ten years of independence. and the n.b.a. all-star weekend heats up with a contest of the league's best slam dunk. thirty five refugees are heading for the u.s. after leaving at a stray and run prison camp on the pacific island nation of nauru it's part of a controversial resettlement deal reached between australia's governments of the
1:22 pm
obama administration the man a mostly afghan pakistani all right prompting rights groups to ask questions about whether somali added brainy and refugees are being excluded from the rue prison camp is part of the story is hardline policy of blocking refugees entering by boat david man is the executive director of refugee legal it provides legal assistance to refugees in the rue adam an a silent on the australians offshore processing arrangements he's with us now live via skype from melbourne david so you've got another thirty five refugees taking the number up to what eighty five now have gone to the us the original agreement was for for well over one thousand why is it taking so long. well that's very difficult to know really what the deal that was struck every year ago. of. the us. twelve hundred fifty refugees from.
1:23 pm
one one thousand two hundred fifty. people. to these offshore processing arrangements the resettlement so far has been very slow going it's certainly welcome the thirty five refugees i've just now. reached are to around about one hundred ninety seven but the reality is that even in the processing becomes swifter to the us even if there is more race that it's not going to cover everyone stritch and. the other option resettlement of those refugees the army of the russian president. which was put into place by the obama administration the worst deal is he right. well the deal itself is one which is essentially a refugee swap deal where the u.s. says it is refugees who are ultimately really first and foremost responsibility
1:24 pm
because there is a people who originally sought asylum minestrone and they were put on the remember stalin but look the reality is under these bilateral deal it reminds that you know the u.s. banking refugees and the question really is one of what how quickly will that happen so that pretty jason bay rates the. really great deal their lives in the suffering in the terrible ordeal for over five years that they have endured but the other question is what will you do it because ultimately they even if this deal reached the full number of twelve hundred fifty there will be still be many people left marooned and suffering are you say these refugees are a strain is responsibility what will it take then to get a straight to what to stand up to its responsibility. it's absolutely critical that a strategy work on moving toward the most bright for adoption and that is raised
1:25 pm
over much of the rest of the refugees and. ultimately a vacuum as soon as possible anyone lift. the us typing so along. the fundamental problem the sticking point remains is hard on border protection policies which to deice have essentially enforced a no chance policy that is that there be no chance of resettlement in australia for those refugees i mean directing our energies and resources together with others to work on. the ministry happen but it is fundamental because what we now use these refugees cannot stay on and on an assignment you differently what we also know is that the profound suffering in humanity that people have been subject to and we know now that it is destroyed ultimately a strategy is legal and moral responsibility to ensure that those refugees are
1:26 pm
brought to safety and the fact is that a strategy reminds the aren't we option for most if not all of those people. in melbourne. eleven somali refugees held captive in libya for years many of them were tortured and some was sold as slaves. reports. levin is relieved to be back home in somalia three years ago he tried to migrate to europe he never made it instead he was kidnapped by smugglers in libya and sold as a slave. like an animal i was sold four times in open markets in libya the last time i was sold for ten thousand dollars i was tortured every day vivan story isn't unique annecy international released a report recently describing how somali refugees were being tortured in libyan detention camps it said they were held against their will by armed groups in exchange for money hundreds were reportedly sold for as little as four hundred
1:27 pm
dollars of far cry from the journey these migrants had hoped for. for two years i was in a libyan prison i spent fifteen thousand dollars and i still wasn't able to reach europe now i'm just happy to be back in country and see my family human rights groups say the european union strategy to stop refugees from traveling across the mediterranean has led to more people being stranded in libya the somali government has been successful in returning small groups of refugees home but how much the government of somalia is committed to bring back its people who are in prisons around the globe we've been able to repatriate some somalis who are in libyan prison a month ago we released migrants from india and ethiopia prisons and brought them back to the country we will continue to do so but it's not going to be easy it took more than two years of negotiations to release libya and many more just like him are waiting to be given the opportunity to get back home the tail opus of
