die in iraq being in the capital algiers as well as since all the cities across the country the pressure is growing on longtime leader beautifully with his own party the f.l.n. withdrawing its support. well mokhtar badri is a lecturer of islamic studies at qatar university he joins us now on sense. this that we're seeing significant numbers of protesters on the streets would you say the momentum is with these protestors now yes of course you can see that every week more people to come out to the street and they are repeating the same slogans the same demands they would like a change of region they would like the prove to go and they would like a new regime to be in place they would like to decide for themselves ok what can we read into the fact that the president's own party are no longer backing him does
10:51 pm
this mean it's likely beautifully will go this firstly will. decide that she's not going to stand for the new election he's just trying to gain some more time but it seems that the all the political sphere around here are withdrawing one after the other and they are accepting they are listening to the street so sooner or later will go but how and what will come next i only hope that the elite and she come to an agreement and will. select a new new representatives of the street to enter a serious dialogue to shape the future of algeria the protesters they're also calling as he said for the entire regime to do what they want wholesale change how likely is it do you think that they'll achieve the same. can't say the least a legitimate. of the people it's the people who should
10:52 pm
decide this is democracy and normally you should find a way out on how to find the. the results of this momentum what will come to a shape of dialogue that will select the representative of the people as i told you to decide what when and what will come next in terms of the military ruler they . are they coming. from what they are saying. there are playing the right look at all if they stick to it the army should protect the borders of algeria and the security the overall security and they should provide the security for the people to come together and decide what's next we are not siding. openly towards any of the actors
10:53 pm
in the political arena from the area but down deep down. is there any other agenda it's not playing the smoke reported to the peoples of what they are saying is good and you should be proud of that all the army is playing they are protecting the security of the overall security whether of the borders or the overall security providing a platform for the people to move ok we will have to leave it there but thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and analysis with us here on. now there's growing cohn's a nation over the u.s. president's plan to recognize the occupied golan heights as parts of israel russia's foreign ministry says any change in its status would violates u.n. agreements iran and syria have also criticized donald trump's tweets in which he
10:54 pm
said it is time the u.s. recognize israel sovereignty over the golan heights of the terror she was captured from syria more than fifty years ago it's estimated twenty thousand israelis live there as well as another twenty thousand mostly druze syrians. well stephanie decker joins us now from the occupied golan heights stephanie this would appear on first glance to be something of a victory for the israeli prime minister. absolutely and it's coming very soon before what is a hotly contested election so the timing of this many people will say well why didn't trump wait to do this off to what's with the timing of this is very calculated it seems to put that donald trump support very strongly and firmly behind benjamin netanyahu to be reelected to another term as prime minister now but netanyahu is going to be heading to the united states this week he'll be meeting
10:55 pm
with trump and we do expect an official announcement because of course this tweet is is trouble saying that america should recognize it will recognize everyone will tell you it's going to happen but an official statement we're expecting will happen next week so this is really something i will tell you almost meddling in these israeli real elections because it is now giving netanyahu an extra boost his are already playing the card that the u.s. embassy was moved to drusilla i'm playing the card that the americans pulled out of that iranian nuclear deal very important to the israeli this israeli administration and now of course that this terrorist you were standing internationally recognized by everyone which is why you were mentioning there such international condemnation as illegally occupied syrian territory now the americans saying that they're going to decide that this is in fact legally is raiding. stephanie joining us from new york golan heights thanks very much for bringing us the seats gabriel joins us now from washington d.c.
10:56 pm
again but we heard there from stephanie decker many people seeing this is something of a gift from donald trump sued binyamin netanyahu is president trump insert fearing or meddling in the israeli elections. well it's interesting because trump actually gave an interview to the fox business network late on thursday that interview aired early in the morning here friday in the u.s. and he was asked about this the interview is primarily about economic policy in the economy but he was briefly asked about his decision on the golan heights and the interviewer said are you doing this to help bolster netanyahu in trump's response was very succinct he says he said no i wouldn't even know anything about that i have no idea but i hear he's doing ok so trump sort of brushing away any insinuation that this was about netanyahu at all but clearly it's sort of hard to believe that trump would know anything about the israeli elections happening in two
10:57 pm
weeks from now by the least that's was trump's response there is also asked about the decision on why now in the golan heights and he said that he had something that he had been thinking about for a very long time it was a hard decision and then he pivoted to sort of equate it to his decision on moving the u.s. embassy to jerusalem he said that was also a very tough decision he said before he made that decision was getting calls he said from world leaders saying don't do it don't do it don't do it trump said i did it and it turned out fine the golan heights is the same thing for years other presidents have campaigned on it they said they would do it they didn't i did this is about israel's sovereignty so trump clearly a framing it in that regard again this was just a tweet by trump we are expecting perhaps more information or an official announcement on it as soon as this week and that's when on sunday the apac israeli lobby meeting begins here in washington a three day meeting of israel activists in the u.s. and abroad. president mike pence will be speaking there as well as netanyahu
10:58 pm
himself we could hear more about this golan heights announcement or decision ben. joining us from washington d.c. thanks very much for bringing us that. let's check in with the reaction from russia and europe here is. well russia was very quick to respond to this morning immediately decided this is a direct violation of any un decisions and also it's bypassing the security council on this of course the contradiction with the occupation internationally c. of crimea is not being mentioned here the strongest reaction came from a federation council foreign commission member or lech moros off you sat that this was clearly an act by a president from to split the arab world and russia would never accept israeli sovereignty over the golan golan heights you have to do to know of course that russia has been very active military in syria for many years now and any loss by
10:59 pm
syria of the golan heights would directly also be a loss for russia. the un has describes the flooding disaster in southern africa as hugely complex thousands of people many of them ill are still stranded more than a week after a cycle and it always struck emergency teams in mozambique have increased efforts to rescue traps people in areas worst affected by the floods more survivors who'd been stranded on rooftops and in trees have been rescued and agencies have also started to airlift food to flood victims many people had gone for several days without clean water or anything to eat while the world food program says more than one point five million people will need aid over the next three months in neighboring some bob wait the situation is dire many people are still missing and damage to roofs and bridges has cut off some communities.
