it was always telling me how famous he was going to make that how he presented hello my name and body without manchester city's northwest representatives kind of . teacher who. actually do remember that we had this special meeting about the nail and he said no. that's not the topic and you immediately this is a cover up in the piece on the mainland city yeah al-jazeera investigations put all of silence this time. you can take back with you a message to the tyrants of her arm do not trust israel's resolve. israel's prime minister accuses iran of being the biggest threat to middle east security.
i'm maryam namazie this is al jazeera life from london also coming up kurdish forces say they've agreed a deal to allow the syrian army to enter freend to help with pellet offensive as growing scrutiny of the f.b.i. failings that led to the florida school shooting and the stars dressed in black here in london in support of a campaign against sexual harassment will have the latest from the battles. israel's prime minister delivered a theatrical flourish and a withering attack on iran at the end of a major security conference in munich brandishing parts of a drone benjamin netanyahu described as the biggest threat to middle east security iran's foreign minister for back accusing him of delusional thinking they have a choice reports from munich. he's ready prime minister benjamin netanyahu went
straight into attack mode against iran as he took to the podium in munich issuing a direct threat to tehran israel will not allow iran. to put a noose of terror around order. we will act without hesitation to defend ourselves and we went back to finance are not just against iran's proxies that are attacking us but against iran itself he followed up with a dramatic flourish that caught all the delegates by surprise brandishing a piece of wreckage from an iranian drone shot down an israel base last week. and he had this message for iran's foreign minister mohammad javert. i bought it here so you can see it for yourself. mr zarif. do you recognize this. you should be george you can take back with you
a message to the tyrants of her own do not trust israel's resolve the man who netanyahu called an eloquent liar iran's foreign minister refused to rise to the israeli bait he preferred instead to outline a new plan to dampen down rising tensions in the region i prevent more conflict in the middle east. iran believes that our security in the persian gulf requires a french regional security architecture we believe in and how proposed creating what we call a strong region rather than a strong man in the region thank god a question and answer session those are if expressed his frustration at israeli attempts to undermine the deal iran struck with world powers to stop its nuclear arms program and we achieved it in spite of him being implemented in spite of him
and the world view to maintain that agreement in spite of his delusional attempts the foreign minister of saudi arabia was equally uncompromising about its main power in the region we cannot afford to put up with the when the revolution and its principles the reason iran a sanction for terrorism is because it supports terrorism thank you baer said the pressure on iran would continue until there was fundamental change the push against them will continue until iran change its behavior david chaytor al-jazeera munich. so i. called back senior consulting satch based think tank chatham house and asked him if there had been any sort of shift in tensions between iran and israel i think there is a dynamic now which is a very negative very dangerous they now make between all the powers in the region
right now and specific incidents rhetoric which is quite extreme as we saw today can escalate it rather quickly into a clash whether it's by proxy or more directly bearing in mind that for the first time that and yell weese basically first name very clear on not only it out of iran in the region or with any and that both sides participate in the civil war in syria not only did it on hezbollah but if it's getting any worse always or feels more threatened to have a direct or directly attack iran this is this war for it's going to escalate rather quickly if they mean it if it's that turns maybe both sides understand that this is a matter of the terms but deterrence might be shifts where she screwed really quickly into action this is dangerous.
syrian kurdish fighters say they've reached an agreement with the damascus government for the syrian army to enter a free to help repel a turkish offensive turkey launched operation olive branch last month to clear offering of kurdish y.p. chief itas they regard as terrorist linked to the p.k. k. a senior kurdish official told the voices news agency that syrian government troops will deploy to some border positions within two days al-jazeera spoke to the white b.g. spokesman nuri mahmud he said we are calling on the syrian army to protect our frame because we'd love to preserve a unified syria we're saying this because the international community continues to address the syrian leadership is sovereign and we call on this authority to protect its territory there is a sum of binge of aid is following the story for us from istanbul. when it comes to fruition this deal would not be a surprise because kurdish fighters the people whose production units are white
b.g. have been in negotiations with the bashar al assad government for a number of days now sources have been telling us that there are sticking points including the man with the conscription of kurdish fighters into the city and government forces there giving up of heavy weapons by these kurdish fighters and giving up all of their military bases and manipulations going to those some of those points that they were agreeing to as were being asked by the syrian government the details of this agreement have not been made public or clear is yet but goodish try to say that they've asked the syrian government to come in and help them to secure these areas against the turkish advances if an event syrian forces entered the border area between syria and turkey called a freend where the fighting is continuing where turkey has launched the operation on drugs to try and clear it from the these kurdish why does it if it is to be seen that how will turkey respond because turkey has been stating that the whole purpose of this operation is to clear its border areas of fight as richard calls terrorists
and when and if syrian forces take over control of these areas and allow turkey and promise to a key that they will secure these areas against any of what it calls terrorist activities what will be turkey's response then will it continue to carry out its offensive or will it agree to the terms that will be offered by the syrian government iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali hominine has ordered an investigation after a plane crashed killing all sixty five people on board they act off this appeared from radar often leaving capital to iran the awesome on allan's flight which was carrying fifty nine passengers including one child and six crew members was traveling sewage in the southwest of the country state t.v. says that fog made it difficult for rescue helicopters to reach the crash site near center on and the mountains. while the cause of the crash is not yet confirmed international sanctions have hampered iran's ability to keep up with modern standards air accidents have occurred regularly in recent years travel journalist
simon calder told our jazeera that iran's fleet is outdated we do not know whether in any sense the sanctions have had any impact on the terrible loss today however there is a direct connection between the sanctions which from the us point of view would be going on since nine hundred seventy nine in the arabian revolution and much more recently of course other western countries have joined in because of the very specific rules on aircraft components and entire aircraft and so therefore you have fleets of aircraft in iran and as a man airlines flies it's the only airline in the world that still flies commercially the boeing seven two seven try jet this is an aircraft which hasn't even been made for over thirty four years and so you've got effectively a block on components of. the new aircraft which is simply left iranian
aviation pretty much as it was let's say round about nine hundred eighty but very sadly has had some effect on safety standards moving to the u.s. now where wednesday's mass shooting at a school in florida continues to dominate the agenda the blame game extended to the role of the f.b.i. and whether the agency was fit for purpose on friday the f.b.i. admitted agents had failed to investigate a tip off about the nineteen year old gunman nicholas cruz who bought the gun used in the shooting illegally that prompted the u.s. president donald trump to tweet that the f.b.i. had spent too much time investigating allegations of collusion with russia during the twenty sixteen election campaign and of course on sunday the issue of collusion with russia very much dominated the weekly talk show circuit. the real issue right now is how do we have a president of the united states not saying what everybody knows to be true russia or interfered into sixteen they're going to interfere in two thousand and eighteen
and we have got to do everything we can to make sure that they do not on the buying american democracy truck this is a huge deal and that we don't have a president speaking out on this issue is a horror show and we have got to bring democrats and republicans together despite the president to go forward to protect the integrity of american democracy well it proves there's no clues into this point there's no collusion in terms of the facebook ads the other social media activity director mueller made it very clear in the indictment that any participation by anybody with it was in the campaign or the sanders campaign which they said was also being assisted by this effort by russia that all that was done unwittingly that no one participated in the knowing fashion so for more on this let's go to correspondent rosen in jordan in washington so as we can expect the military indictment has filled debates and we see that in the sunday talk shows but i guess the problem for president trump is that the longer
all this discussion goes on for the more of a shadow it costs on the legitimacy of his election victory. well and according to the pundits who are very much analyzing the way the president has been responding to friday's indictments there's basically saying he's engaging in a lot of deflection and not actually trying to lead the charge as it were to prevent foreign governments or foreign persons from tampering with the upcoming midterm elections just this past week leaders of the national intelligence community told members of congress that they believe that russian officials were agents are trying to interfere in the upcoming congressional elections and so there's a lot of consternation from both republicans and democrats here in washington that the president is not trying to do more to safeguard the integrity of the upcoming
elections and we've also been hearing in recent days from his national security adviser. who made it clear at the munich security conference that evidence of rushing to fairness in the u.s. election was undeniable how's that playing out over there at the white house. well it's not pleasing the president late on saturday evening after h.r. mcmaster made what many are considering a definitive comment about the indictment the president basically went on twitter and criticized macmaster for not hewing to his view the president's view of events he retreated on sunday his view that this could have been a situation where it wasn't anyone from russia but it could have been someone from china or for some other country who could have been responsible for the social distance from asian campaign that took place on social media during the two thousand and sixteen campaign and so now there are people wondering whether h.r. mcmaster will stay on as national security adviser or whether he's going to have to
find a way to hold onto his position and i thank you very much jonah hill tonight is from washington you have al-jazeera much more still ahead for you funerals a healthy two palestinian teenagers shot eyes re-inforcing as tension continues on the border. and the art of to firing the mastermind behind one of the finest gardens and the wilds. had a tropical cyclone kelvin is just about no more but you can see the shape very overseas in the satellite picture came on two lines about a category two cat the r. for a while as well another the clouds spread from it's right down to the desert areas that gibson for example and so western australia will see
a decent downpours and go all the way down to the south coast probably avoiding person to get a bit further inland from lots and we still got heat forty one degrees out of spring's not very well done southeaster adelaide melbourne sydney or around the low to middle twenty three bit warmer not. some big showers in maybe sydney area possibly southern queensland brisbane as well you still got a visible circulation here so this kelvin as low as you and therefore rain to get rid of there will be flooding in western australia. now gaeta is still in our midst it was the really quite nasty piece of work that went through tong grid cause so much damage is just about extra tropical so it's if you like it's a big low pressure storm system but it stretches down towards new zealand it will probably make a pretty wet time of it particularly in wellington but certainly the northern half of south island for the next two days.
