12:04 pm
it's for their own safety but the plan was initially put in place in one nine hundred eighty three and was only implemented after the oslo accords were signed years later when i because the roads could through the west bank in circling palestinian communities and dividing the west bank into account ons they connect to jewish settlements to each other and directly to israel in case of an exaggeration there's already a system in place. israel sees the bypass roads as vital for development of settlements they expanded by seventeen percent last year or as many palestinians say ever since. you as president with every dig of the shovel but listen in see more land lost and the dream of a future state. without that hammer. in the occupied west bank earlier israeli tank fire killed a palestinian farmer and gaza that happened in the city of qom yunus the

palestinian health ministry says another man is in critical condition in a surprise move us president ronald trump has told the supporters that american troops will be leaving syria very soon he was speaking at an event in ohio when he began complaining about how much the u.s. spends on rebuilding other countries the u.s. has more than two thousand military personnel in syria helping local groups defeat eisel. and by the way we're not going the hell out of isis will become another syria like very soon let the other people take care of it now very soon very soon we're coming now we're going to have a hundred percent of the caliphate as they call it sometimes you further to his land take it all back quickly quickly like with some previous trump announcement this one caught many of washington off guard including state department i can't comment on what the president supposedly said i haven't seen and i have to refer you back to the white house. i have not seen it myself and said it i have not seen
12:06 pm
that myself ok but you know you don't you don't necessarily comment or report on things that have been heard secondhand and i'm not going to do that that's ok that's fine so you're not aware of any policy determination to. to pull the us out of so i am not no ok so the president is just speaking off the cuff and i don't know i don't know what he was already back in the white house i'm not and i'm not aware it's not just the. the u.s. joy in the syria conflict during barack obama's presidency one mission was to support groups fighting i saw the pentagon says about two thousand u.s. troops are still there to prevent a resurgence by the armed groups and maintain stability and december defense secretary james mattis said he expected to send more diplomats and civilian personnel to syria more than eight billion dollars of u.s. money has been directed towards syria related to monetary and assistance congress has set aside billions more to help with security operation inherent resolve which aims to eliminate eisel from syria iraq and other areas has cost more than eighteen
12:07 pm
billion dollars. and has more from beirut. remarks by u.s. president donald trump that the u.s. would soon withdraw from syria is being met with a growing sense of skepticism by activists in syria we've been speaking with now many of them are saying that this once again the highlights that the u.s. policy toward syria is inconsistent at best and always very chaotic one activist we spoke with says these are just words for the media this is a message that donald trump wants to send to the american people because a decision like this would need a long debate from the pentagon and they believe that that decision would take at least two years to come to another one saying we have no idea about this they've not heard anything another activists saying surely the americans will not withdraw from syria especially in the presence of their interests on the ground they say that they will continue that activists are saying that they believe the u.s. will continue to face off against iran on the ground in syria and another activists
12:08 pm
stating that america essentially always is the opposite of what its president declares clearly this once again underscores how difficult it is to assess what exactly the u.s. will be doing in syria this is not the first time the donald trump has made a statement and then just a few short time later the state department has made a contradictory statement so very unclear right now at this hour there's been no official reaction from the syrian government to donald trump's remarks but we'll just have to see in the days ahead what exactly will emerge. as a singer syria adviser to samantha power who was washington's u.n. ambassador during the obama administration says it has a believe it's comments on the trip but represent real policy change. i was literally just speaking with some colleagues of mine former colleagues of mine at the state department who are getting ready to deploy to syria to to do their work
12:09 pm
out there in the northern part of the syria where the u.s. military stationed so i really think this caught everyone off guard and i don't think it's particularly connected to any real policy that the united states continues to pursue in the region the policy in the past has been to intervene in as little of a way as possible to try to. address the humanitarian situation without getting in broiled in a broader conflict in the middle east that's kind of been the policy but really clearly it has not worked with this administration there's clearly a disconnect between what the president is saying what his military and political advisors are telling him which is the united states should remain in the area as it is in to use it as leverage against the syrian regime the iranians and russians and to keep an eye on potentially eisel returning that's really kind of the consensus on what the policy should be but again just like previous statements the president should from the hip and and now everybody is getting all worked up over he's saying
12:10 pm
but i really would pay attention to what the united states actually does in the coming days and weeks which i think will be more likely to remain in the area that sent. russ's expelling six u.s. diplomats and dozens more from other countries in response to the expulsion of its own diplomats it's a latest development in a worsening dispute over who is behind the poisoning of a former russian double agent and britain i can i reports from washington d.c. . the u.s. consulate in st petersburg shut down some sixty diplomats ordered to leave the country by the middle of next week sweeping russian retaliation. there will be mirrored measures but not only stopping events the u.s. ambassador is invited to our ministry where my deputy would deliver him the content of these retaliation re measures against the united states they include the exposion of a similar number of diplomats and they include our decision to withdraw our consent to the operation of the united states consulate general in some petersburg as for
12:11 pm
the rest of the countries everything that concerns the number of people who leave the russian federation from diplomatic missions is also mirrored said at the root of the dispute the alleged poisoning of a former russian double agent on british soil with a russian designed nerve agent russia vehemently denied any involvement but in a coordinated move more than one hundred fifty russian diplomats have been expelled from some twenty seven western nations a sanction including sixty from the united states and twenty three from the united kingdom. and the u.s. state department has reacted angrily to the russian action insisting that russia does not have the right to play the victim there is no justification for the russian response our actions were motivated purely by the attack on the united kingdom the attack on a british citizen and his daughter remember this is the first time that
12:12 pm
a weapons grade nerve agent no overt shock has been used outside of war on allied soil the russian consulate in seattle now stands empty but importantly the u.s. has made clear it reserves the right to further response the diplomatic dispute is far from over mike hanna al-jazeera washington. britain's prime minister has been on a whistle stop tour of all four countries in the u.k. at the start of the countdown to leave the e.u. this time next year theresa may says she's committed to making bracks a success that many britons nationwide don't want to divorce from europe or u.k. correspondent barnaby fellas. she didn't vote for brett's it to put on a rapid tour of britain starting in a scottish textile factory the prime minister the country to embrace the idea of leaving the e.u. i believe that we can negotiate a good agreement which is terrorists free in this friction is trade as possible so
12:13 pm
we maintain those markets in the e.u. but also that we open up markets around the rest of the world breaks it provides us with opportunities. but who's this campaigning against sit outside downing street boris johnson or maybe don't put his impersonator on these protesters believe bret's it can be stopped with a second referendum on the final deal of it go she ations between britain and the e.u. is will a student just speaking for a generation that voted overwhelmingly to stay in business one direction raffi again fighting to mobilize and try to persuade parents and grandparents many of the like minded back to back to back just not sure anymore and it's not the right deal i'm a number i direction from here but all the older generation persuadable i travelled from london to the english market town of spaulding west seventy percent voted to

ever worsening a social and economic crisis in the country the former president of france nicolas sarkozy is to face trial for corruption influence peddling he's accused of making phone calls to influence judges who were and best to getting alleged illegal financing during his two thousand and seven presidential campaign sarkozy's lawyers say he will appeal against the decision separately he's accused to receiving campaign funding from the late libyan leader moammar gadhafi to talk about war has more from paris. well this case all dates back to two thousand and fourteen at the time french police were investigating the former french president nicolas sarkozy over alleged illegal campaign funding of his two thousand and seven presidential campaign and as part of the investigation the police put a wiretap on both nicolas sarkozy's mobile phone and that of his lawyer and they stumbled across
12:23 pm
a conversational one point in which sarkozy and his lawyer were discussing a giving a top french judge a very comfortable position in monaco in return for some inside information on the investigation well sarkozy was later placed under formal investigation on alleged corruption charges but he and his lawyer always denied those charges they have appealed in the past saying that those wiretaps were in fact illegal but now we have a case in which france's highest court has decided to press ahead with those charges and it's very likely indeed that nicolas sarkozy will now face trial in this investigation it has to be said though the past few weeks have not been good for the former president his legal woes are really piling up he was placed under formal investigation just last week for other corruption charges again linked to illegal campaign funding this time of his two thousand and seven campaign allegedly he misused libyan money in that campaign and he's already very likely to face trial

12:26 pm
unnoticed outside of sacramento but as more details emerged so too do the coals for justice street protests growing louder by the day and spreading as far away as new york white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders said that stefan clark's killing was terrible but that the white house won't have much more to say about it because in her words it's a local matter at clark's funeral in sacramento this was the response to that no this is not a local man. they've been killing young black men. and we are here to say we're going to stand stand firm and the leaders of this family emotions are still high and people have promised to not rest until the officers are held to account of sacramento is on their more protests are planned the family lawyer is appealing the call we must do.

12:28 pm
there but a carefully selected audience of so-called micro targeting what is relatively news the use of personalized data by political campaigns to find out almost as much about you as you know about yourself in terms of the whole ethos of influence and persuasion you know every every every post everything that you like these are all bits of data that are going towards building a profile of arguments against people about the same knowledge is power so it's really surgically and been able to predict and influence people's behavior at the heart of the scandal involving the political consultancy cambridge analytical and its alleged use of data from fifty million facebook profiles is the charge that personal data has been used to distort and undermine the democratic process but the easiest way that you can influence someone's behavior is by kent continually showing them something time and time again and they become unconsciously influenced and therefore take comp attention on the new belief system the point of most
12:29 pm
political campaigns is to change beliefs and attitudes so is there anything wrong with targeting voters in this way cambridge analytical has boasted that its cutting edge micro targeting campaign won the us election for donald trump that sparked outrage and indignation of course especially among trump's political opponents but it's worth remembering that a previous president is also believed to have won the white house thanks to online micro targeting none other than barack obama and with considerably less outrage and indignation as a result well i think the segmentation that they are doing now which came down let's go doing now is very much the same thing that barack obama did in two thousand. and it's well it's trying to make the advertisements as relevant and personal to people and doses as possible benedict pringle is an ad executive who also runs a blog on the sometimes dirty business of political advertising he's day job and
12:30 pm
his sideline have much in common while campaign techniques become ever more precise winning elections is off to rule a sales job i think that the margins in the trunk election and in the bronx at referendum were so small and the number of people that were in play the persuadable votes was so few that the number of ads that were run the amount of money that was spent in targeting them would have undoubtedly had an impact on the result would it change the result impossible to say well it impacted at least you know a decent chunk of the persuadable votes is absolutely so micro-targeting is a winning strategy that's here to stay and the more data we put into the system about ourselves the more data is available to influence to persuade and to change the way we think jonah hill al jazeera.
