5:02 am
welcome to the news hour syrian state television says that rockets have struck several military bases in hama and the aleppo countryside the army is calling it a new aggression by its enemies state media had earlier reported of successive blasts heard in the west and hama province iranian forces are stationed in the area . man is that. it's one of the strongest attacks on the military civilians in aleppo described hearing a huge explosion and their description is in line with what the state is saying the first of the airstrikes killed eight people at military posts in the aleppo countryside but we haven't heard a full tally of deaths from the military yet it is clear the explosions were massive and the equipment used was sophisticated it is only like the strikes carried out by the western trio which had minimal damage what is clear is that the
5:03 am
syrian military is still being targeted and this was a big hit after the u.s. led airstrikes one hundred tabla is a syria expert at the washington institute for near east policy he says israeli attacks targeting iranian bases in syria have continued for some time now. it seems as if it's israeli strike yet to be confirmed but the targets in the recent history of israel bombing inside of syria would suggest that that's who's responsible these are bases mixed bases for iran and regime forces inside of syria iranian forces are spread out throughout the country they are the mean backers of bashar al assad on the ground and israel has launched a campaign to target those assets as they spread throughout the country these bombings and rocket attacks on the what have you been going on for several months
5:04 am
and i think they're going to continue with the iran in its proxies was against israel its allies in what way may be seen. well earlier syrian state media also reported a deal between the syrian government and opposition fighters under the proposed deal rebels will evacuate the camp areas south of the capital damascus the syrian government had launched an offensive in the area last week to push ice allowed nine hundred civilians have been killed and a large part of the camp hours in palestinian refugees in the area has been destroyed in the violence. the footage has a merge showing the moment their strike hit a funeral of a key who feel needed in yemen. large crowds gathered in the as thirteen square in the capital sanaa for the burial of some odd and some of those killed in air strikes carried out by the saudi coalition last week the fighters have fired multiple ballistic missiles towards
5:05 am
a city of just ran in response. donald trump's new secretary of state issued a strong warning to iran during his middle east tour mike pompei you criticized teheran's saying it's destabilizing the whole region composed trip includes visits to saudi arabia and israel comes as trump edges closer to a decision on whether to pull out of the twenty fifteen iran nuclear deal or a force that has more from west jerusalem in the middle east my company would double down on the theme that has dominated his first international trip as secretary of state iran's threat to the region and the world and the solidifying u.s. threat to pull out of the iran nuclear deal iran destabilize the region it supports proxy militias and terrorist groups. it is an arms dealer to the rebels. and iran conducts cyber hacking campaign. supports the murderous assad regime as well compares arrival in riyadh followed
5:06 am
a barrage of eight ballistic missiles fired into saudi territory by hooty fighters in yemen the u.s. and saudi arabia say such missiles come from iran or combine that ticket and we also think that iran should be dealt with by imposing further sanctions further violations of international laws relating to ballistic missiles. iranian missiles are a chief concern of israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu his focus on the risk of their being fired from iranian bases in syria and by hezbollah from lebanon with his talk of a u.s. pullout from the iran deal and new sanctions against tehran pompei as language was almost interchangeable with netanyahu we remain deeply concerned about iran's dangerous escalation of threats to israel in the region and iran's ambition to dominate the middle east the remains of people thought that iran's aggression would be moderated as a result of signing the do the opposite has happened and iran is trying to gobble up one country after the other both men welcome the u.s.
5:07 am
embassy move from tel aviv to jerusalem for the fourteenth of may the day the israeli state was declared seventy years ago maintained that final boundaries within jerusalem were up for negotiation that the u.s. was committed to a lasting peace between israel and the palestinians there was no mention though of the recent demonstrations along the gaza border fence where israeli snipers have shot unarmed protesters killing dozens and injuring hundreds might pompei was a different proposition from his predecessor rex tillerson who spent most of his tenure as secretary of state in a state of at best semi detachment from the white house is seen as very close to president trub in particular on the issue of iran and so that gives his words extra weight even perhaps especially when they mirror one of two listens frequent messages that saudi arabia's blockade on qatar should and they also stress to the foreign minister the gulf unity is necessary we need to achieve a report in the new york times said the message away from the cameras was more direct enough is enough stop the blockade by the time pump am moved on to jordan
5:08 am
his chief aim seemed established laying the groundwork for tougher action against iran clear two of the obstacles the e.u. russia and china have all warned against scrapping the nuclear deal the decision will be donald trump's the deadline may the twelfth are a force that al-jazeera west jerusalem. well joel rubin is the president of the washington strategy group and a former deputy assistant secretary of state joins me now from washington d.c. good to have you with us on al-jazeera mr rubin in terms of the mike. sort of impression on the arab world with his first visit into the region how would you assess it in comparison to rex tillerson well certainly might bomb piro is speaking for the president in it's clear that he has the president's confidence and that's something that rex tillerson never really achieved and it undermined rex thorsten's ability to conduct assertive diplomacy when the secretary of state is
5:09 am
not seen in sync with the president he plays that we can't but pompei i did deliver some very strong messages related to iran related to the gulf related to the palestinians that are distinct from tillerson and take some adjustment for the region to deal with this direct pace there's no longer a separation with the president and the secretary of state that they can count on perhaps to try to measure differences in negotiate right now it's a very clear message of course the iran nuclear deal is top of the agenda and yet when pompei was being confirmed in those senate hearings his tone was rather stark and strong about scrapping the deal and being on the same page as the president when he went to brussels only last week for the nato meeting it was a softer language. is this in contrast or in conflict with the president as you say you think they're on the same page. i do think they're on the same page and it is
5:10 am
striking that after the visit last week of president mccrone from france to washington where he made an impassioned argument publicly and privately to keep the iran deal it is striking that secretary pompei o would so publicly say that essentially the united states is going to get out of the deal it's clear that that's his message it is it is distinct from what we've heard in recent days from pump in europe but i think that the administration really does feel right now that's the hand they want to play there is certainly one train of thought that both tell us that and pump are on the same page on and that is the guarded woods to the saudis about the gulf crisis and trying to sort it out now how do you read that with reports in the american press that it's been a much more direct telling off of the arabia to end this blockade now of cattle.
5:11 am
yes well well. visit to with president that really was a successful visit for the concert ariz where president trump was very clear in stating that he supported and to the blockade and pompei all got his marching orders and so going to the gulf being direct being clear after that meeting it's no longer possible for the saudis in this instance to believe that they can work with and work with trump and potentially have a difference between the two they really are getting the same message and that's very important for the pomes the to have a secretary of state give the same message that said it's a tough message and it's not it's not certain that this is going to really create the kind of end game that we want from the u.s. perspective just delivering a tough message to say stop a blockade that's not enough there's going to be need to be more work done and just
5:12 am
asking for it. we'll just see what doesn't certainly in the coming days of the moment joel rubin back in washington d.c. thanks for your time. thank you and now they've been on the road for nearly a month the so-called migrant caravan has arrived at the mexican u.s. border hundreds of people from honduras guatemala and el salvador say they're fleeing persecution and have one aim to cross over to safety onto u.s. soil while u.s. president donald trump has called the caravan a threat to america some are fully supportive rob reynolds has the latest from san ysidro border crossing just south of san diego. even as the group of people traveling from central america the border here at san ysidro california to request asylum in the united states the border protection agency announced that it had already reached its capacity and wouldn't be able to process any more applications
5:13 am
for at least the rest of the day now this means that those asylum seekers a may have to wait a day or even more as the bureaucratic process works its way forward but the u.s. is obligated to at least consider the claims of the people who have come up in central america seeking asylum doesn't mean that they will have to accept them it doesn't mean that the asylum seekers will get residence in the united states but they will at least get some sort of an administrative hearing unfortunately for those people who have come up from central america seeking refuge in the united states about three quarters of all the requests for asylum from central americans to come into the united states are denied. well we crossed the border two months whose house more force from the mexican city of tijuana. was supposed to be the end of a long journey for members of
5:14 am
a migrant group finally arriving at the us mexico border crossing here in t one a however u.s. customs and border protection announced that they would not be allowing individuals that lacked the proper legal documentation to cross into the united states now the spirits were higher earlier today members of this migrant group are celebrating at the u.s. border wall what they thought would be the end of their time here in mexico again these are individuals that are mostly from central america countries like honduras el salvador guatemala countries that having a high level of violence individuals members of this migrant group are fleeing the violence associated with street gangs others are fleeing domestic abuse others are fleeing high levels of poverty and these are folks that have been traveling for a very long time over a month now and it seems as though many will have to wait a little longer before they are able to turn themselves into u.s. border authorities there is a political analyst who says while immigration remains a big issue for many americans republicans fear trumps hard line policies that
5:15 am
turning off many undecided voters. of course there are some criminals and people into the united states illegally are by definition committing a crime but these people who are on the border now they are seeking asylum in the united states they are going for a regular process to get into the united states legally they may eventually try to get it illegally but trump's base his core supporters are people who think that they were a threat they're criminal threat they're a terrorist but they threaten to undermine the foundations of the united states they just don't want them here and to them this is a real threat of criminal activity on the border even though those even though there's not much evidence that even illegal immigrants commit a disproportionate number of crimes because they get deported and it's makes it very difficult and risky for them to commit a crime the british home secretary has resigned amid a scandal over people in title to remain in the united kingdom being threatened

a real possibility here i think there can be a deal that lays out a goal and then sets forward a process to try to get there north korea's not going to give up its weapons before it gets something concrete you know especially if they see the united states. walking away from the iran nuclear deal north korea is not going to enter into another nuclear deal without getting something concrete in return and the divergence on the sequencing north korea wants benefits up front united states wants benefits up front and they'll have to work out some deal maybe sequencing. simultaneous changes the opposition activists in all media holding more rallies ahead of a vote in parliament will choose day to choose a new prime minister demanding that protests lead to the call of the shia and be chosen to lead the country the previous prime minister. resigned

5:25 am
led this opposition movement. and he has been talking about dealing with the corruption and his message has been very simple and has appealed to so many armenians and this is why tens of thousands of them have been on the streets with today's developments just galvanizing them further that the republican party is no is going to field a prime ministerial candidate when parliament is going to vote on tuesday is expected to select a new prime minister that means that the people's candidate nicole passion and looks set to be the next prime minister of armenia and this is really an extraordinary turnout for this opposition movement and that's why we have again seen many people coming back out onto the streets if you are advance and show their support for him to maintain their momentum until that crucial vote on tuesday tens of thousands of people have vosh some of the spanish that have complained in

ports attracts workers from all over the world for oil and renewables and the north sea fishing industry it's an important place for both scotland and the u.k. and so the opinions of these people matter identity politics which seems to shape so much nowadays is very pronounced in aberdeen the people have voted by some distance to remain british in the scottish independence referendum but then in the brics it vote they said they would rather be europeans than simply british citizens and now it appears they can't have both in this confusion it was crawfish national party thinks it may have another opportunity christian is a french national who married a scot and who now works in local politics with a party that wants independence from the u.k. if that sounds confusing then his explanation is that the identifies as being a european and so he believes do an increasing number of scots living here as an amazing discussion the discussion of identities i'm scottish i'm proud to be

5:33 am
a strong warning to iran during his middle east tall like. ron is destabilizing the whole region. stripping three visits to saudi arabia and israel and comes as trump edges closer to a decision on whether to pull out of the twenty fifty. iran nuclear deal. and the so-called migrant caravan from honduras guatemala and el salvador has arrived at the u.s. mexican border after a month on the road nearly two hundred migrants say they'll apply for asylum in america president donald trump once called the caravan a threat to the u.s. . authorities have released a magazine editor who in twenty thirty was sentenced to eleven years in prison for insulting the king so many are broke a second some soap had used his magazine to campaign for the law to be changed he refused to plead guilty or seek of oil pardon critics say the prohibition on
5:34 am
insulting the king is used to stifle political dissent was more this let's join scott hyde correspondent in bangkok i mean or what was the case against him scott i mean why was he convicted. so what he was convicted of less majesté and the rules of defaming laws defaming the royal family here in thailand are some of the strictest in the world and what he was convicted of is you know as you said he ran in a magazine and there was an article that was published on this magazine's website and that there are some comments on one of the articles that the government here the legal system here deemed as defaming the royal family they charged him with not taking those down so that's why he was originally sentenced it was eleven years in total ten years for defaming the monarchy one year for defaming a senior official within the military that was reduced about eighteen months ago to
5:35 am
a collective seven years so we were expecting him to be released today monday morning we would have been in touch with his daughter straight away through she is also an activist but they didn't really know what time he's going to be released today but he was released very early pre-dawn hours about five am local time here in bangkok and he came out and greeted a few dozen followers supporters but yeah i know what the main charge was last night just a and as you mentioned so he did not see a royal pardon he did not seek an appeal he said that you know as you said he's champ championing restrictions a lot changes on these restrictions i should say so that's why he went through and serve seven years in the house of these sort of defamation cases against the law and he viewed in sort of the wider public of civil society why is some you know skate such a focus for those who oppose the little. well he championed he really focused his career and his life on getting these laws changed so that's why he is such
5:36 am
a prominent figure and as it's known here in thailand it's one one two cases of one one two that the leagues of legal classification for allows majesté cases so there's such a focus on that and also as you've mentioned so here they are focused on so prominently now because it's viewed as that's what the government run by the military now uses against its political dissidents against its critics and those cases are becoming more frequent you know he has been somewhat was in jail you know during this last two so he was fighting this because even before the coup four years ago there have been more cases of one one two here in thailand these dissidents political dissidents of critics of the government put in jail under these this last month to stay rules and laws so that is why there's such a focus on human rights groups have said that you know these laws need to be changed and they're used as a political tool of the government so that's why there's such a focus and obviously today him being released and he said you know literally steps out of the prison that he's called home for the last seven years he's going to
5:37 am
continue with this cause and also he's going to join the cause pro-democracy cause here in thailand as it moves forward and as we're trying to see whether they're actually going to be elected after this to those four years ago so helplessly what happens at me with him and his career in the coming days and weeks of the moment scott thank you. the u.n. security council delegation listen to how doing stories on sunday from hundreds of the hindu refugees who fled the military crackdown in me and while the meetings took place across the border in bangladesh where some seven hundred thousand remaining are living in makeshift camps charles stratford reports now from cults is bizarre. this is how the british ambassador to the united nations was greeted a refugee camp close to the bangladesh me on the border. the twenty four member u.n. security council delegation led by britain peru and kuwait came to assess the situation on the ground for more than a million refugees living here seven hundred thousand of whom flipped the crackdown
5:38 am
by the myanmar military which began in august they had stories like these. i was raped they killed my husband they burnt my two year old son i saw five men rape a twelve year old girl and then kill her we want justice from. thousands of refugees lined the roads as the delegation of vehicles passed many held signs demanding justice and help. in the cucolo refugee camp the delegates were split into groups to listen to more stories from victims of violence one man told them the myanmar government would never tell them the truth do your investigations from your own countries he said britain's u.n. ambassador said it was vital the international community act with one voice we need to go back and evaluate what we've seen on this trip and see if we can come together to build on the unified feeling that the security council had back in a band when it called on the government of myanmar to do certain things to protect
5:39 am
their way and allow them to go back in conditions of safety so i think that's the immediate short term priority myanmar has banned any independent investigation into what the u.n. says is ethnic cleansing of the ranger. doesn't recognize them as an ethnic group he calls them bengali what was then the burmese government stripped ranger of their citizenship in one thousand nine hundred two last november the security council passed the resolution demanding myanmar hold to military action against the rangers but the potential for veto power of myanmar allies china and russia has stalled anything stronger than that at a news conference china's representative stated his country's position. is to seize majlis to cease fire so he's to try to find a solution to something. at least just present the root causes when a journalist asked the u.n.
5:40 am
delegates which of them used the word ranger china's representative appeared not to understand but didn't raise his hand later he told me china respects what richenda call themselves united nations security council delegation came here to assess the magnitude of this crisis and what they've seen today and some of the stories that they've heard of no doubt giving them a fair indication of just how terrible the situation is here. it's fair to say they will probably hear a very different story in riyadh from the government there and that means translating their findings into concrete unified political action at the security council could remain a challenge for some time yet stratford al-jazeera problem the refugee camp on the dish. and a further sixteen refugees will be transferred from cannes in the route to the u.s. and resettlement deal between the u.s. and australia the group includes afghans pakistanis and they'll be really settled
