israel flexes its military might hitting dozens of iranian targets inside syria. are you watching al-jazeera live from london also coming up on the program june twelfth in singapore donald trump announces key details about his highly anticipated meeting with. forty nine people have been killed after a dam bursting kenya with an entire village washed away and justice for nora social media rallies to overturn a death sentence given to a young sudanese woman accused of killing her husband. israel says it is the story of nearly all of iran's military infrastructure in
syria in a wave of overnight strikes it's in retaliation to alleged iranian attacks on israeli positions in the occupied golan heights with prime minister benjamin netanyahu warning iran that it had crossed a red line tehran has yet to respond officially but senior iranian politicians have denied that iran was behind the attacks harry forsett reports now from the occupied golan heights. cockpit 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 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 and. 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 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. 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 at al-jazeera in the occupied golan heights let's get more now. from tehran. senior leaders in tehran were silent in the immediate aftermath of cross 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 to the homage of 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 you 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. 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 bombed them bombed military bases to avoid direct tool 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 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. well see even the director of the win without war group at the center for international policy he says tensions have heightened in the region following the u.s. withdrawal from the iran nuclear deal in a dangerous moment the iran deal for its greatest achievement was that it took the united states iran and indeed israel back from the brink of war and what we're
seeing now is that tearing that deal up has put those parties right back right back on that bring to war the iranians are unlikely to have no response to the kinds of provocations in the attacks that we're seeing right now in syria obviously these attacks over the last twenty four hours have been the largest that we've seen in decades but the israelis have been repeatedly attacking iranian positions in syria for quite some time now throughout the last several years in fact right before those missile attacks from syria on the golan there was israeli attacks preceding that on iranian positions we're entering the cycle of tit for tat escalation where both parties both sides are claiming they're the aggrieved claiming they're the victims of the other's aggression we have to be alarmed about where we're heading and you're absolutely right we have now this potential between the hawks and the forces that we're seeing in the donald trump and ministration folks like john bolton folks like mike pump aoe that have openly talked about war with iran repeatedly in the past we have to be wondering what they're saying to their israeli counterparts right now.

there a sensibly by plane his second flight of his life and we understand this would also be the furthest that he's traveled from his native country now a series of developments that the u.s. views as favorable has led us to this point it started with north korea signaling that it was willing to stop testing of its nuclear and ballistic missiles program and it also said that it would tolerate the presence of u.s. military troops on the korean peninsula and of course in the last few days we saw the release of those three american prisoners who are now home in the united states the big question of course going into this summit planned for june twelfth is what will north korea ask in return from the united states at this point no one in the trumpet ministration has said if any. if any requests have been made by north korea and in fact trump is said to be heading toward the summit with the attitude of
finding out what north korea's intentions are a question we may not have the answer to until june twelfth arrives. trauma's tweet came just hours after he welcomed back three u.s. citizens who were released from jail in north korea kimberly halkett was 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 a translator kim described his treatment in north korea forced to work but also treated well when sick. 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. really. 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 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 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 help at al-jazeera andrews air force base. rescuers in kenya are searching for survivors after a battle collapsed killing at least forty nine people with several still missing the dam in the rift valley burst its banks on wednesday washing away almost an entire village andrew symonds has more now from kenya. it was fast and unforgiving the dam burst released a surge of water that took homes and lives with it there was no warning and it happened in darkness this is the scene hours afterwards they're searching for a man one of dozens of people many of them are children the sprawl of daybreak is where families once lived whole homes swept away. from the air

spoke of the achievement and what's to come and. for those supporters there was excitement with disbelief that malaysia was finally seeing a change in government after sixty one years in power by the ruling very sun coalition . struggled for more than their teachers government in a big big brawl. mission in two articles in there gives you know it's a mystery the followers think. i think everyone will come on this is all very fake that you. could be regarded as the puppet master of malaysian politics. in wednesday's election he defeated the party he used to lead it's now led by now
the politician man had a hand picked to be prime minister and is now in brule in a corruption scandal niger denies involvement. here is now in coalition with anwar ibrahim the deputy prime minister he sex in one nine hundred ninety eight and wire is serving a five year jail sentence for sodomy charges he says are politically motivated mcateer says he'll seek a real pardon for anwar which may allow him to become prime minister within two years leading up to this farce and on election day when it became clear that this was going to be a close race there was concern about exactly how this would unfold depending on who would win would there be protests or violence on the streets there's been no sign of fact instead only celebrations. the delays to the swearing in ceremony would have created a few nerves within the government in waiting and its supporters fearful of last
minute tricks ruining their party but the transition was smooth which in itself is remarkable given the high stakes the characters involved and their intertwined history wayne hay al jazeera kuala lumpur. in the story of nora hussein a young sudanese woman who's been sentenced to death for killing her husband nora story begins when she was sixteen she fled the family home near khartoum to escape a marriage forced upon her by her father for three years she lived with her on ten focused on getting an education but when she was nineteen she was tricked into returning home and forced to marry a few days later her husband draped there with the help of his relatives who held her down and when he returned again the next night to repeat the act nora fought back stabbing him several times and the venture be killing him her cases attracted widespread attention on social media with the campaign justice for nora now trending on twitter israel has sohn is the global executive director of the
activist group equality now the group is backing up petition calling for justice for nora she told me that sudanese law is failing the young girl. this is a travesty of justice from every angle that you can look at and it also shows all the various steps and bit sudanese laws and policy failed this young girl who had a very bright future ahead of her from the aspect of child marriage sudanese law allows girls right after puberty to be married off by their father has it allows for no marital rape exemption there's no medical rape recognized under the law and the one the girl has to be obedient to a husband so there's not so fast specs of the law that are called in to challenge by this case the case is a very very hard one under sudanese no but when you look at it from a human rights aspect in many many other countries of the world this would be looked at as a victim and would be provided services and care as opposed to being you know put in solitary confinement and given the death penalty so we are appealing to the
president of the legislature to the ministry of justice on behalf of sudanese activists and international human rights groups that no neuron must be freed and this case must be really looked at and the hope that i have here is that really have had a previous case four years ago in sudan where a young ethiopian woman was gang raped and the know at that time provided that if you couldn't prove your rape you were going to be flogged and guilty of fornication and adultery and we got together with sudanese activists and that time bad law was changed and so the rape provisions were amended and that woman did get justice so i'm hopeful that justice will prevail in numerous cases and i'm hopeful that with international media attention with international human rights groups and sudanese activists all working together we can get there for. local her arms a nine year battle to destroy the education system in northern nigeria has left hundreds of teachers and children killed or kidnapped thousands of classrooms have
