8:01 am
israel is denying reports that it's agreed to a truce with palestinian factions and gaza israel has struck dozens of targets in the gaza strip in response to attacks by hamas and islamic jihad the palestinian factions launched their biggest assault on israel and for years the u.s. has requested an urgent u.n. security council meeting to discuss the rocket strikes but smith reports from gaza . the sound of explosions occurred over gaza for much of tuesday it's been the most intense exchange of rockets and mortars between israel and various fighting groups here for years. israeli defenses intercepted many all of the rockets. one of the armed groups in gaza islamic jihad said it would launch rockets because israel killed three of its men to look out
8:02 am
post earlier in the week. which runs gaza that israel had escalated tensions. this is a collation is very dangerous for the zionist occupation and the bears complete responsibility for this that collation and its really think ations the compiler su know that the crimes will be responded to with resistance. israel's military said that some mortars hit a kibbutz and its kindergarten before it opened for the day. israel views with utmost gravity the attacks against it and its communities by hamas and islamic jihad from the gaza strip the military will respond with great force to these attacks israel will exact a heavy price from anyone who tries to attack it and we view how as the responsible party to prevent such attacks against us. throughout tuesday other armed groups have joined in firing rockets and mortars into israel and
8:03 am
israel's military has continued to hit targets in gaza ultimately hamas has influence over all these armed groups and is believed to be trying to calm things down but there is a lot of frustration here that after more than two months of protest more than one hundred people killed palestinians here and closer to ending israel's blockade of gaza but it's with al-jazeera. a former u.s. national security official hillary mann leverett says the latest palestinian actions may cost them some sympathy have around the world. i think the palestinians have been much more effective in terms of their their case here in washington and i think particularly in european capitals when they are engaged in what seen. seem generally as nonviolent resistance but when it goes anything further than that where there could be some sort of an attack on israeli civilians even though it still may be justified as
8:04 am
a way to defend oneself against an illegal occupation it's the political discourse does change and i think that you see in particular on the u.s. side someone like the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley who is very politically ambitious here she is seizing on that to now have a u.n. security council meeting that will. what her hope is is to really condemn the palestinians even though just a few weeks ago they had broad sympathy i think at the united nations even here in washington and certainly in european capitals and into separate development as front has released all of the seventeen palestinian protesters detained on a boat that was headed to cyprus they attempt to breach israel's naval blockade of gaza the israeli navy interceptor the boat shortly after the departure and toted it to an israeli port. let's move on to other news now the u.s. state department has suggested that the so much between donald trump and kim jong un and singapore next month is back on that comes as the north korean leaders right
8:05 am
hand man travels to the u.s. for talks with secretary of state mike pompei o. the united states continues to actively prepare for president trump's expected summit with leader kim in singapore president trump will meet with prime minister shinzo abi of japan on june the seventh at the white house and the secretary pompei o looks forward to being a part of those meetings north korean vice chairman of the central committee kim yong chal is arriving in new york and will meet with secretary palm pale later this week we also have a u.s. delegation meeting with the north korean delegation in the d.m.z. committee held at has more from washington d.c. . well the white house is confirming when north korea's vice chair travels to new york city it is the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o with whom he will be meeting this is significant because previous visits between the u.s. secretary of state and north korean officials happened in pyongyang this is now happening on u.s. soil an important gesture in the eyes of the united states as the two sides begin
8:06 am
to build trust leading towards what the white house says will be an expected meeting between the north korean leader kim jong un and the u.s. president but of course the date not yet confirmed now the white house says it is continuing to actively prepare for a meeting between the two leaders in addition to delegations in asia there is also work happening here at the white house the national security adviser john bolton discussions daily going on we're told according to the white house press secretary between not only the national security team here in the united states but also the counterparts in south korea as well as japan in addition to just trying to nail down the the meeting and whether or not it will occur other fine details that are being worked out the agenda what does denuclearization mean and can the united states offer north korea the security guarantee that the north korean leader is
8:07 am
looking for. the u.s. says it will impose a twenty five percent tariff on fifty billion dollars worth of imports from china but also restrict investment by chinese companies in the u.s. and limit exports of high tech goods to china earlier this month the two countries agreed to look at measures to cut china's trade surplus and a move that appeared to reduce the risk of a trade war between the world's two largest economies and the u.s. state department is planning changes to the visa system for chinese students and spot a president trying to tempt a crackdown on what he calls the theft of u.s. internet troll property official. expected to limit student visas to one year for chinese who plan to do graduate work in science or technology in florence louis has more from gen jang and easton junge soon province. china says it surprised at the latest announcement coming out from the trump administration and called on the us to implement this period of their most recent joint statement on china's
8:08 am
commercial ministry is of course referring to a preliminary deal reached between the two sides not too long ago in which the us had agreed to delay imposition of tariffs on chinese goods in exchange for china agreeing to significantly increase purchases of u.s. farm goods and energy products. but this latest announcement from the u.s. government is of course a reversal off that deal and it comes just days before u.s. representatives are due to arrive in beijing to continue trade talks and some analysts have said that this latest announcement by the u.s. government is intended perhaps to strengthen u.s. hand in those negotiations and to signal that gloves are coming off in those traits and other analysts have said that this perhaps is a move to appease u.s. politicians. just last week the trump administration had made and not the reversal it lifted a seven year ban but it imposed just made on chinese telecoms giant. from
8:09 am
buying u.s. components now it lifted the ban after china complained that the band would put the company out of business this is a company that has already been fined by the u.s. for selling high tech components to north korea and iran in violation of u.s. sanctions china's reaction you can say has been quite mild that north reiterated threats to impose retaliate carrots but they seem to have taken a sly dig at trumpet ministration and its propensity to flip flop on decisions saying they're surprised by the same time the decision is somewhat expected. a prominent russian journalist has been shot and killed at his apartment and ukraine . it was well known critical president that a man who said police and here said the forty one year old could have been targeted because of his job that's been reported left russia because he feared for his life or chalons has more from moscow. ukrainian police say that our caddie bob janko was
8:10 am
found bleeding in his apartment by his wife he received several gunshot wounds and died on his way to the hospital ukrainian politicians says the gunman had been waiting in the stairwell of the building and shot but janko as he came back from a trip to the grocery store now this man was a journalist rights an activist he was self exiled from his home country russia he had served in the chechen wars in the ninety's and early two thousand and that experience had made him both very anti war and also anti putin in the protest movement of two thousand and eleven two thousand and twelve he had tried to organize forceful resistance against the putin government but it was an online post in two thousand and sixteen that
8:11 am
triggered his flight from russia he had basically said the. military plane crash in syria in which a russian. military choir die and various russian journalists as well he said that left him in difference because he disagreed with the military campaign that russia was involved in in syria that was the start of a of a russian media campaign against him and he felt that his life was in danger that's why he fled first to prague and then to kiev but it seems that that wasn't enough to keep him safe that the russian government has swung into gear already regarding this the foreign ministry is saying that it expects that kiev conducts a quick and transparent investigation that it wants international organization to take over that investigation as well the presidential human. rights council here in
8:12 am
russia says that this is a very provocative killing and the state duma that's the lower house of parliament announced that this murder proves that ukraine is the most dangerous country for journalists the opera house says that kiev will likely use bob jenkins death for its own political games so russia being fast in getting its messaging out there i think it knows that the spotlight is going to be pointing at moscow as a possible source of this hit. moscow says there's an agreement to hold a three way meeting between russia the u.s. and jordan to discuss the deescalation zone and southern soviet the announcement follows reports that syrian government forces are being sent to the area and preparation for an offensive saying aha the reports from bay vote. this corner of syria has been quiet for over a year there are fears that may change washington has threatened the syrian
8:13 am
government that it will act if it moves against the rebels and. the u.s. along with russia and jordan are guarantors of a cease fire in those southern provinces now moscow says. a day after jordan said the three countries see eye to eye on the need to preserve the truce. but there are many questions about what they agree on we don't know what kind of an agreement will they reach how long will the ceasefire last would it be a permanent cease fire what about the force that would control this area will government rule return to south in syria. which is what the syrian government wants state t.v. has been. it says the army. to the area in preparation for an offensive the opposition enclaves along the borders of israel and jordan both countries want russia to make sure iran and its allied militias stay away from the
8:14 am
area it seems moscow supports their position. from the very beginning of the agreement on forming a deescalation area in southwestern syria for the eventual withdrawal of all forces from this part of syria the result. should be a situation in which troops of the syrian armed forces will be stationed alongside the syrian border with israel but israel denied reports of an agreement with russia to prevent the deployment of back to forces in the area prime minister benjamin netanyahu said israel is not interested in any partial agreement. to syria opposition is clear we believe that there is no place for any iranian military presence anywhere in syria. there has been escalating tension following a series of israeli strikes on iranian targets in syria there are reports that iranian and iranian backed forces have withdrawn from the front lines in southern
8:15 am
syria and reposition closer to damascus if this is confirmed it will mean there is progress in the talks jordan and israel want those forces away from their borders and russia is pushing to return states rule to that corner of syria without the need for military action. syrian army commanders and their allies say the battle plan is ready and preparations are completed clearly keeping up the pressure while diplomacy takes the front seat. beirut. the u.n. has called on saudi arabia to provide more information on women's rights activists held in custody at least thirteen people were detained in a government crackdown that they've accused of having suspicious contact with foreigners the un's human rights office says it wants to ensure the detainees are treated fairly. these include the rights legal representation the rights know the reason for their arrests the nature of the charges against them the right to have

8:29 am
a little training they can at least make change in their stores gabriel's on al-jazeera philadelphia. now avis jones do we have a diversity consultant in washington d.c. and she thinks more u.s. companies should follow starbucks example i think that there is a level of authenticity with this c.e.o. unlike other incidents that we've seen here in the states the c.e.o. stood up pretty immediately and said that this company would take action obviously this is obviously a p.r. tragedy that no company wants to face right but he could have just ignored it he could have just moved on we've had other incidents here particularly i think a great example is the waffle house horrible incidents there and their owners have really done nothing as a result at least with starbucks they've started to make a change in terms of taking the other president an act of setting down thousands of
8:30 am
stores having some level of racial bias training isn't enough no but i do believe they do deserve some recognition that they are moving in the right direction and i think it would be great if other companies would sort of take their lead and be more proactive when they have racist incidents like this occur in their establishments. and i again i'm there's a problem and the headlines on al-jazeera and as well as denying reports that it's agreed to a truce with palestinian factions in gaza it struck dozens of targets in the gaza strip and response to attacks by hamas and islamic jihad the palestinian factions launched their biggest assault on as rail and for here is the u.s. state department has suggested the summit between donald trump and kim jong un and singapore next month is back on the north korean leader's right hand man is
