3:04 am
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
3:05 am
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 that it could all too easily rise again are a force at al-jazeera in the occupied golan heights let's get more now on iran's response to the israeli actions is monitoring developments from to. senior leaders in tehran

iranian revolution and even until recently israel attacked syria several times bombed them bombed military bases to avoid direct syria chose self-preservation even in 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 and 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

3:19 am
is it is it not and you have to have that because you don't know we're not going to be walked into a red where the negotiator john kerry refused to leave a. while thompson and swims at the details of his meeting with north korea's leader came just hours after he personally welcomed home three americans freed by the regime the move was seen as a goodwill gesture by pyongyang ahead of the summit john hendren has more from washington d.c. . the white house is calling it a victory for the world three american citizens were released from a north korean prison president trump threw some happens when he said kim jong un really was excellent by releasing those three men that struck a lot of americans in a bad way they have not forgotten the story of auto warm beer in american citizen who was returned to the u.s. from a north korean prison in june in a coma and died just a few days later the senate minority leader chuck schumer said it is no great
3:20 am
accomplishment of kim jong un to do this and when the president does it he weakens american foreign policy and puts american citizens at risk around the world there is a long history of hope and then disappointment in meetings between the u.s. and north korea but president trump considers himself a deal maker his critics would say he is a deal breaker after pulling out of the iran nuclear deal in the paris climate treaty but trump fancies himself a deal maker we will find out after june twelfth whether he's able to make a deal on north korea with kim jong un the goal the white house says is the complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula the british government's apologized to a former libyan dissident and his wife for the role it spies played in sending them to libya to be tortured in two thousand and four. and his wife were abducted with the help of british agents were handed over to moammar gadhafi his henchmen were asleep ports. if revenge is
3:21 am
a dish best served cold then the fourteen years it took abdelhakim bell and his wife fatima good shot to get their apology will have been worth it so we come now to the statement by the attorney general in the british parliament a place which so often hears lectures about how other countries should have paid the rule of law the government finally admitted what had always said that it's had illegally kidnapped him and handed him over to the gadhafi government in libya to be tortured and on behalf of her majesty's government i apologize on reservedly we are profoundly sorry for the ordeal which you both suffered and our role in it. 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 and i six it was suspicions they were linked to al qaeda through the libyan islamic fighting group
3:22 am
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. he for whom we did money 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 a lesson from this and i hope other governments around the world will learn it as well. and outside the u.k. parliament fastener 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 it got mixed up in the rendition of an innocent pregnant woman
3:23 am
and to get off a dissident 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 after the september the eleventh attacks in new york the americans were doing rendition a loss and presume of the british will that 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 go on the political architects of u.k. foreign policy then including former prime minister tony blair can now rest as easy as the m i six agents and the line is drawn into the scandal but had it not been for the persistence of human rights lawyers this day would never have come lawrence lee al-jazeera london argentina has begun formal talks with the international

monetary fund about getting financial support to stabilize its economy economy minister nicolas should do a hazmat i.m.f. chief christine lagarde at the group's headquarters in washington d.c. argentine is dealing with soaring inflation and its currency the peso is losing value last week argentina's central bank tried to stabilize the situation by increasing interest rates to forty percent. well they call it a number of turmoil has sparked protests on the streets of the capital want to set its tester's a worry that strict terms from an i.m.f. bailout could lead to another crisis many blame the i.m.f. susteren team measures for the financial collapse in the early two thousand that left millions in poverty. to the workers they will not stop on and all the storm we workers are not going to like congress to accept the interference of the international monetary fund the increase of tariffs or labor reform and we are going to fight until the end so that those infamous resolutions of the next week government to turn back the workers have
3:25 am
a memory we know that policies like these lead us to hell and we will not allow it well earlier i spoke to mark weiss broad who's been whiting about argentina's economy for fifteen years he says the country's government could have avoided going to the i.m.f. . they're not facing the kind of situation even that they were facing in that depression from one nine hundred ninety eight to two thousand and one which of course the i.m.f. is is quite a bit of fault for our times very much worried about going back to the i.m.f. you know poverty rose during those few years from eighteen percent to forty two percent of the population and that was a country that was you know not long before that one of the richest richest in america given the level of opposition to this move by the argentinians why is the government so anxious to go to the i.m.f. i think perhaps they think that this will restore credibility with the markets.
3:26 am
that's kind of the way they look at these things and i think also it's way and this is typical in many cases of the i.m.f. where the government wants to take measures that are going to be deeply unpopular they're going to cut spending most likely could possibly push the economy into recession and they use the i.m.f. as cover things in the i.m.f. is making us do that we have to you know we have an agreement and so i think those would be the reasons why they would do that you know all these programs and i.m.f. typically they reduce the deficit by cutting spending and pushing the economy towards recession because then people have less money to spend they import less and that's not the best way to do it of course for most people but it could be the way that some of the government investors and people they care about look at it
3:27 am
you mentioned before the president was the mockery was looking to get some sort of credibility with the markets as a result of bringing in the i.m.f. but politically speaking how much of a risk is he taking but i think it is risky i mean he you know his. approval rating cording to latest polls has fallen from fifty percent late last year to thirty five percent now in as i said these kind of programs think you know things definitely get worse at least at first and sometimes indefinitely so he's definitely taking a risk dozens of protesters have been detained in kazakhstan after demanding the release of political prisoners the rally was organized by a leading government critic in the country's largest city. a court called knocked out i'll be ourselves group an extremist movement two months ago judges have been warning the public that could face criminal prosecution for supporting him

demonstrations in kazakhstan are rare because people need permission from the president and the police to rally. south korea's president monday in is marking his first year in office having improved diplomatic relations with north korea is now enjoying record approval ratings kathy novak reports from seoul. monday in came to power following months of angry public protests his predecessor pocketing hay was impeached and ultimately imprisoned over a corruption scandal campaigned on a liberal platform promising change after a year in the job with an approval rating of more than eighty percent moon is the most popular president since public polling began when the country transition to democracy in the one nine hundred eighty s. polls show many south koreans even those who consider themselves conservatives like moon personally we're going to get to the two groups pulling a moon's approval rating on that people who are satisfied by his unconventional
3:29 am
openness and the people who believe moon is doing a great job to us with enter korean relations. someone to long to an exhibition celebrating the highlights of moon's first year. long as i really like his way of openly communicating with the public in many ways especially compared to how disconnected other presidents were i have great expectations and i hope to see real cooperation and reconciliation with north korea. if you would have predicted these scenes a year ago moon shifted from parkes hardline policy towards pyongyang to one of engagement even as the president of south korea's ally the united states was threatening to totally destroy north korea moon's vision for a peaceful lympics was realized when north korea sent a delegation to the winter games in pyongyang chung and the two koreas marched under a unified flag at the opening ceremony and since donald trump unexpectedly accepted
3:30 am
an invitation for a summit with north korean leader kim jong un meetings not missile launches have become the new reality on the korean peninsula moon has found himself in the diplomatic driver's seat. while moon has been in the spotlight for his engagement with north korea some south koreans would prefer to see the president focus on domestic issues during the campaign he promised to tackle challenges such as the youth unemployment rate which recently hit a two year high of eleven point six percent. the issue that is perceived by the public as the most significant is the economy if these issues are not improved the president's approval rating can sink at any single moment before last year's election most south korean said the economy and jobs not into korean relations should be the next president's top priority something analysts say moon may want to keep in mind as he begins his second year in office kathy novak al-jazeera soul.
