zero. hello i maryam namazie this is the news hour live from london coming up in the next sixty minutes israel heads iran's bases in syria of the accusing iranian forces of firing rockets on the occupied golan heights. this is a special night for the really really great people donald trump welcomes the americans released by north korea and then tweets he'll meet with kim jong un in singapore. muhammad is sworn in as malaysia's prime minister as his supporters celebrate on the streets of kuala lumpur. world number one simona halep is out of the madrid on print carlina pliska ending spirit so when the event from.
9:02 pm
israel says it has destroyed nearly all of iran's military infrastructure in syria in a wave of overnight strikes off the what it said what iranian attacks on israeli positions in the occupied golan heights the prime minister benjamin netanyahu defended the strike saying that iran crossed a red line to iran has yet to respond officially but senior iranian politicians have denied that iran was behind any attacks dozens of targets were hit across southwestern syria according to a map posted by the israeli army on social media israel said that iran had five twenty rockets from syria israeli front line positions in the north of the heights the golan is a mountainous part of syria that was seized by israel in the one nine hundred sixty seven war and then an extent one nine hundred eighty one a move that has not been internationally recognized very false it has all. cockpit
9:03 pm
video from israeli warplanes is they carried out the largest and most prolonged air strike in syria since the start of its civil war israel says it hit dozens of iranian military targets as well as five syrian anti-aircraft installations israel says it was a response after iranian forces launched twenty rockets at israeli targets in the occupied golan heights we have made it very clear that we are here to defend ourselves those who started this round of violence were hearing ins who attacked israel we responded accordingly and we are now waiting to see how the iranians will respond israeli forces in the occupied golan heights were on alert for any further response at the same time local residents were told to go about their business as normal schools were open no restrictions placed on large gatherings israel says of the twenty rockets that were fired towards the occupied golan heights from syrian territory they all either fell in syrian territory or they were intercepted what
9:04 pm
followed was a massive and prolonged response from the israeli armed forces a real escalation in the kind of force that israel has so far been prepared to use within syria it's a message to deter any further such action and it's also making the most of an opportunity to do as much damage to rein in forces as possible israel's government has long warned of a growing threat from iranian bases and missiles inside syria it seems to have decided to act sooner rather than later. we have of course hit all the infrastructure not all but almost all of the iranian infrastructure in syria they must remember the saying if it rains here it will pour over there and i hope that we finish this chapter and that everyone got the message. syrian state media said syrian air defenses it inserted most of the incoming rockets over the capital damascus but also confirmed that a radar station and a weapons storage site was struck. with iranian state television said syria had
9:05 pm
given a quote crushing response to. israeli attacks the strikes were carried out hours after israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu was in moscow saying he'd come away confident that russia would not prevent what he called israel's freedom of action a day later a different tone from the russian foreign minister. that we see this is a very alarming development we believe that all issues must be resolved through dialogue during our multiple contacts with the leadership of both iran and israel including during yesterday's meeting between putin and netanyahu we underline the necessity of avoiding any actions that might be seen as mutually provocative. for now this latest flurry of cross border violence has subsided but all sides are aware that a new bar has been set for its intensity and that it could all too easily rise again are a force that al-jazeera in the occupied golan heights. has the latest reaction from town on. senior leaders in tehran were silent in the immediate aftermath of cross
9:06 pm
border strikes between syria and israel that israel blamed on iran instead we heard from m.p.'s members of iran's parliamentary commission on national security and foreign policy an influential body of government in the country one m.p. flatly denied iran's involvement saying it was syria rightfully responding to repeated attacks by israel another m.p. speaking told us here on the homage of our jamali said that israel was fabricating the nature of iran's involvement in the country. in accordance with international laws we have a presence in syria but there is no specific iranian military base there we may have a presence in some syrian bases for a kind of consultative training so israel's claim is devoid of truth jamal he also had a warning for israel saying that the days when countries in the region did not respond to acts of israeli aggression are over so much as we have a remark from the supreme leader that the era of hits in iran has gone before the iranian revolution and even until recently israel attacked syria several times
9:07 pm
bombed them bombed military bases to avoid direct rule syria chose self-preservation even iraq in the saddam era israel hit the atomic power plants whenever the zionists wanted they would break the sonic wall and attack the south of lebanon syria iraq and other countries so far they haven't seen any response but recently they saw the f. sixteen shut down syria stood firm despite being weakened by seven years of civil war so because of that they have been considerably frustrated they are accustomed to being invaded and they never receive response be sure that if confrontation occurs surely the country who would be damaged the most is the zionist regime jamali added that he hoped the actions taken by israel by launching missiles at syria would eventually result in the liberation of the golan heights very strong words coming from iran's parliament and no matter what iran senior leaders say in coming days two things are certain that this represents a dangerous escalation of the syrian conflict where iran is heavily committed and
9:08 pm
it comes at a sensitive time in the region when iran is backed into a corner with the devolution of the nuclear deal earlier this week. i'm joined now by al jazeera senior political analyst marwan bashar and marwan it's difficult to separate these escalating tensions between israel and iran in syria from the breakdown of the nuclear deal will it prove to be. proved it's a sort of pave the way to a wider conflict in the region unfortunately that's of that's where we're heading not only because israel is an enthusiastic party to an escalation because it says that its national security is threatened by iranian presence on its borders meaning in syria as well as in lebanon. i think in the overall and that's one of the sort of one of the secrets if you will behind trying to understand the motivations and the implications of america withdrawing from the nuclear deal is that this is no longer about the nuclear deal this is not about america stepping out and saying
9:09 pm
this is not a good deal and we're going to impose sanctions on iran because if it does that then the europeans the chinese and. the russians will continue with the deal russia and iran will be empowered and it's america that will be isolated so one needs to understand that behind this did is a strategic logic that will lead to escalation whether by the united states by the nazis the rectally or through israel saudi arabia and other american parties in the region the more the escalations the more the likes of europe and russia will have to take a stand the more like jordan iraq turkey would have to take a stand because if there is a real conflict going on between the united states and iran on the ground in the middle east europe and others cannot just be neutral and so this is all
9:10 pm
iran will be well aware of this and. in some cases have been careful in the way they've been responding of the past months and years but can they avoid now being drawn into open in direct conflict with israel you know one of the one of those products is of the iranian israeli tensions over the last forty years. is that generally speaking the iranians have been boasting of destroying the zionist regime in palestine while it is there has been playing victim of iranian aggression . but in reality it's has been israel that is militarily superior and capable of hitting iran if it wants to it's is there that has the nuclear power not iran and if they do go down in some sort of a showdown it's zero that will be able to cripple even destroy the iran not vice versa but it is paradoxical that if the iranians are continue to make threats
9:11 pm
against against the science and you know in syria itself i think it works in iran's favor not to escalate the situation because they are slowly but surely expanding and it's their ally but shuttle us said the dictator who is really reinforcing his presence in the country and escalation with israel will lead israelis to really knock down iran in more than one ways a piece in the short term on the long term is a difference and then does that mean that the possibility of an all out war is actually very low in iran profess to avoid direct confrontation a perfect function through proxies and for israel it could mean instability all around it you know this is one of these things that we keep talking about is there is there a plan b. is there is is there a strategy behind. trump walking away from the nuclear what now right as it where i think if you go to washington and you go to any one of the think tanks you will just pick up any one of those guides from that collecting dust whether it's in the
9:12 pm
think that's not even in the city under state department or department defense and so on and you can get a manual what to do next my expectation is the united the united states has and israel have a number of options one covert operations inside iran to beefing up the naval presence in the gulf in the eastern mediterranean three continue to go after iranian targets not only in syria but also in iraq and in yemen for once it once iran is drawn in any way like last night. in pitching for example the golan heights to respond in the most devastating way against iran forcing gets to respond once again and hence enter into a cycle of violence so really the united states has many options to escalate and i think iran and the united states might go at it as it were and the real losers in all of this would be the people in the region reunions arabs and israelis as
9:13 pm
well ok well thank you and now u.s. president donald trump has confirmed the date and venue for that historic summit with north korea's leader as is customary the president announced it on twitter saying the highly anticipated meeting between ken jeong and myself will take place in singapore on june twelfth try to make it a very special moment for while peace will trump treated after welcoming back to the u.s. three americans who released from jail in north korea can really help it was also at andrews air force base. back in the united states it's been more than a year since kim haq song and tony kim have seen their families for kim don shula it's been even longer he was imprisoned in north korea two years ago forced to do hard labor after being convicted of espionage speaking through
9:14 pm
a translator kim described his treatment in north korea forced to work but also treated well when sick there were a lot of lives and we were treated in many different ways for me i had to do a lot of labor but when i got sick i was also treated by them the release of the three americans is being viewed by the white house as a goodwill gesture by north korea's leader water back here who really. was. excellent to these three incredible people they are really three incredible people the release of the three americans is the product of negotiations ongoing with the united states and north korea but it is also a prelude to the upcoming summit between donald trump and north korean leader kim jong il a summit that trump says he hopes will yield even greater results trump says his primary goal is to achieve complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula that
9:15 pm
is looking forward to his upcoming summit with kim with optimism i really think he wants to do something and bring that country into the real world u.s. secretary of state mike pump aoe has made two trips to north korea it's during his most recent visit that kim reportedly accepted the u.s. proposal to grant amnesty to the three detainees kimberly helped get al-jazeera andrews air force base. let's go live now to heidi jo castro who's in washington so why has chosen singapore that particular venue for this historic summit with kim jong. mariyam singapore was an expected choice by trump this is a neutral territory both for the united states and for north korea singapore hosts a u.s. naval presence as well as the north korean embassy and it has experience with these
9:16 pm
high stakes diplomatic talks in two thousand and fifteen hosting talks between the presidents of china and taiwan it is seen as a secure in stable location about five thousand kilometers from pyongyang it would be the furthest that north korean leader has traveled from his native country now north korea has already given what the trump administration describes as a list of concessions leading up to this summit planned for june twelfth north korea has indicated that it is willing to stop testing of its ballistic missiles program as well as its nuclear program and that it is willing to tolerate the presence of american troops in the korean peninsula and we saw of course as kimberly reported the release of those three american prisoners was that final token of good will leading up to this expected meeting now the big question though is what will north korea ask the united states in return and from all reporting there has been no indication that the administration really knows what to expect in
9:17 pm
fact vice president mike pence said that trump what go into this meeting to ascertain what are the expectations from north korea a question we need may not have the answer to until june twelfth mariyam from washington joe castro thank you very much you have the news hour live from london much more still ahead. at least forty nine people are dead and many more missing off to a dam burst in central kenya police in indonesia deny a deal was done to end a deadly siege at the prison where i still suspects were held and then they transport. after fifteen years in the english premier league wayne rooney is set for a new start and you continent. mohamed has been sworn in as malaysia's prime minister following his unexpected election
9:18 pm
when the ninety two year old was confirmed as the country's seventh by king sultan home at the fifth day. in the eighty's and ninety's the win makes him the oldest elected leader in the walls. who is tainted by corruption scandal when he has. it was a long day for my had see a mohammed as he waited to be sworn in as the seventh prime minister of malaysia the ceremony eventually happened in the palace behind me in kuala lumpur just before ten in the evening local time the expectation was that it would happen on thursday morning the morning after the election because that is what we have seen happen in the past it didn't pan out that way in fact there were several day delays throughout thursday and the fact they were a few delays would have created a few nerves among supporters of marketeer mohammed and his victorious coalition given that leading up to this election there was sticky elation there was
9:19 pm
a concern that if this vote didn't go the way of the former prime minister najib resign and his coalition by reason national that's ruled this country for more than sixty years that perhaps they may not let go of power so easily in the end the transition has been relatively smooth and my head see a mohammed is once again the prime minister of malaysia but he says that within the next two years he will hand over power to his former deputy prime minister and why abraham who's in jail on sodomy charges charges that he says are politically motivated. mohammed says he will seek a royal pardon for n.y. ybor him and have him released as soon as possible for more on this i'm joined by a sudden and do may he is a resident fellow at the american enterprise institute a public policy think tank based in washington thanks very much for speaking to us so historic election victory as we were hearing that ending six decades of the governing coalition's role is it going to be
9:20 pm
a smooth transition. i don't think transitions like this are ever smooth this is a real test for malaysian democracy so far i think the militia has come out looking quite good but this is you know this is entirely new territory this is a country that ever since independence has been ruled by one coalition and one then that one coalition has been dominated by one party the united million national organization now they're in even though there is a familiar face he served as prime minister before the idea of an opposition government is entirely new to malaysia and so they're short to have to think troubles in your opinion how did this happen how did it come about how was this how did this sudden groundswell of opposition or support for something different how why did it originate from you know it's been building for a while i mean i think it's you know quite unnatural in a democracy to be ruled by just the same coalition over decades so opposition
9:21 pm
resistance and the idea of opposition has been building for a while but i think two things really catalyze it in this case the first was the serious corruption allegations against prime minister najib the one n.d.p. scandal that was on front pages across the world and the fact that some of that money was traced to his personal account so that really wounded his standing and secondly i think thierry joining the opposition you know margaret himself being you know the preeminent post-war leader of know his decision to switch to the to the opposition those sort of curious on the face of it because the opposition was almost founded in opposition to mars here it helped the fears of many mainstream malays who are the main ethnic group in that country and that i think about allowed the opposition to cross the line. at the age of ninety two he's the world's oldest elected leader and he has promised to hand over power within two years do you have
9:22 pm
confidence that will happen. you know maria we never ignore in politics but i think in this case the fact that he's ninety two the fact the really in many ways as much a vote for anwar ibrahim as for martyrdom ahmed makes me confident that he will in fact do what his plight pledged to do so what then is he going to do in the intervening period what are his priorities for the next two years. you know i think the most important thing is to give is to is to bring anwar out of jail set him up and start looking for a transition i think the other thing that malaysians will be looking for is some kind of you know rapprochement among the three major at the cities the malays the chinese and the indians now that the ethnic minorities in particular the chinese and the indians have really been the bollocks off the opposition movement so the challenge for for malaysia but also the promise is to come to some kind of social
9:23 pm
compact that is more collegial among these three groups thank you very much sudden and i'm a the american enterprise institute for sharing your analysis with us on now to kenya where rescuers are searching for survivors after a dam disaster that killed at least forty nine people with several was still missing a dam in the rest valley around one hundred fifty kilometers north of the capital nairobi burst its banks on wednesday evening washing away almost entire village dam is one of seven in the area owned by a commercial for residents a concern more of them might be unsafe flash floods in kenya have already killed at least one hundred people since much under simmons has more from a county in eastern kenya. that's failed the number of dead will increase is still not known how many people are still stuck in the day three of them the situation is really really difficult with the rains hampering rescue efforts least

quick reminder of the top stories this hour israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu is defending overnight strikes on syria which destroyed nearly all of iran's military infrastructure there according to the israeli military iran has yet to respond officially it's been confirmed the historic summit between u.s. president donald trump and north korea's kim jong un will take place in singapore on june twelfth at my terre mohamad has been sworn in as malaysia's prime minister following his unexpected election win on wednesday is now the oldest elected leader in the world so more our top story the conflict between israel and iran recent hostilities in the golan heights i'm joined now by rosemary hollis professor of middle east policy studies at city university in london thank you very much for coming in to speak to us. we often hear about the absence of an overall strategy from washington when it comes to the middle east region is there a plan in place well you know there are echoes of previous efforts by the united
9:32 pm
states to remake the whole region when they invaded iraq they had a plan for remaking the whole region starting with iraq they had a kind of domino theory that regime change there would lead to regime change in other places. and it didn't quite work out according to their plan they're also echoes of a great deal of hostility from washington to the government in tehran they really don't understand the ayatollah as they really can't get a grip on this idea of a revolutionary islamic regime with a little gender which doesn't suit washington's interests level and its preferences for the region i wanted iran's presence has been strengthened in the region because of the u.s. intervention in iraq in two thousand and three how difficult is it going to be to roll back that influence in capability now well i think it's useful to think of
9:33 pm
a couple of ways in which the u.s. has approach problems and see if they're doing the same thing again with iran because in the case of saddam hussein in iraq for the duration of the one nine hundred ninety s. and then after two thousand and six when hamas won the election victory in palestinian elections the u.s. theory was if you slap enough sanctions on a population they will eventually oust their regime. it doesn't work now i think you can say that they think that slapping sanctions on iran now will hurt the entire population will be the plans of the government to improve things they have been improving things somewhat for the population and they haven't just been spending the newly realized capital that was previously frozen on the military ambitions in the rest of the region and there is just dissatisfaction anywhere on
9:34 pm
that they're not doing enough that conditions have continued to be really poor but classically when attacked from outside the population tends to cohere around the national identity the americans would do precisely the same so backfire potentially now in terms of how it will backfire there are other. there are other miscalculations of the americans in the past they thought they would meet a grateful population when the invaded iraq. i don't know how but the anticipated rule go smoothly once gadhafi was toppled in libya they have this theory that if you could bring down the regime in iran and some of the bombing plans that they had for a confrontation for iran did include attacking regime targets if they brought it down where in the world do they get the idea that there will be
9:35 pm
a stable transition to something else as opposed to massive chaos on a very large scale or short of that that the iranians will find ways to retaliate which are not a full frontal assault or attack on anybody else with the russians or anything to help the iranians well i think the russians are sitting by quite happily in the case of syria right now because i don't think they ever intended to share significant power with iran in syria and it serves their purposes that israel take on iran in the context of syria beyond that however it will feed into the russian narrative that the united states has more to do done more to destabilize countries than anybody oh thank you very much professor rosemary hollis from city university in london well now the british prime minister has apologized to a man who was illegally kidnapped by british spies and sent to be tortured by

in two thousand and four the british prime minister tony blair was eager to win over gadaffi as part of the american war on terror. and his wife were taken from thailand by officials from the british intelligence service m i six over suspicions they were linked to al qaeda through the libyan islamic fighting group which was rebelling against gadhafi but ten years on and the same british government was helping bring gadhafi down and in the rubble of tripoli the files emerged detailing the relationship between m i six the american cia and libyan intelligence. it took a full six years for the u.k. authorities to accept his argument he had asked for nothing except an apology. for whom and when. today the british government has acknowledged and apologized for the suffering of my wife and myself years ago i thank them for this brave step the british government has learned
9:38 pm
a lesson from this and i hope other governments around the world will learn it as well. and outside the u.k. parliament fast and held up the letter from the british prime minister offering the total apology for what they've done. the u.k. lost its way when i got mixed up in the rendition of an innocent pregnant woman in an anti kadafi just didn't but today i think it stood on the right side of history by recognizing its mistakes and by apologizing. and so where does this leave the reputation of m i six it's worth bearing in mind that spies do what their political masters tell them to and in the years to the september the eleventh attacks in new york the americans were doing rendition a loss and presume of the british they should too but times change and so do political considerations and this is the people made can come back to hold them. the torture cells was held in a goal the political architects of u.k.
