of the lizard king we went on the cover on a wildlife smuggling trail stretching from madagascar to malaysia on the trail of a man known as the pablo escobar of reptile smuggling rewind on al-jazeera. israel carries out air strikes across the gaza strip ourself to a rocket fired from there is a house north of tel aviv. color that i've received are you watching al-jazeera live from london also coming up. as things stand there is still not sufficient support in the house to bring back
a deal for thirteen for vote u.k. prime minister to resign may accept defeat on her deal for the moment spot remains determined to see off plans by rebel m.p.'s to seize control of the brics it. no clear winner yet in thailand's first election since a military coup five years ago. how america's gun lobby is working to influence policy outside the u.s. and al-jazeera investigation into the an all raise australia connection. the israeli military has begun bombing targets across the girls a strip rocket attack near tel aviv is ready forces say the hissing hamas targets including the offices of hamas leader ismail haniyeh israel has also mobilized ground forces near the gaza border early a rocket fired from gaza struck
a home in central israel seven people israel will not tolerate this i will not tolerate and as we speak as i told you mr president just now israel is responding forcefully to this wanton aggression i have a simple message to israel's enemies. we will do whatever we must do to defend our people and defend our state. allowed there is high for situ as is life now on these frail girls aboard a salary brings up take the latest you're hearing about those airstrikes on gaza. well we've actually been hearing and seeing some of them ourselves just in the last twenty thirty minutes there was in israeli military helicopter which flew over here and fired a rocket towards what seemed to be a position on or near the border behind me but more significantly is what's been
going on inside gaza or inside gaza city itself as you heard at the beginning there is male one year the leader political leader of hamas his office was struck several times by warning blows and then came the major attack which is entirely destroyed that office that's the first time since two thousand and twelve that that has happened and before that there are two other multi-story buildings that were taken down one in the west of gaza which was the internal security building and another right in the center of gaza very close to the al-jazeera bureau actually that was from our colleagues there that we heard about this first that at insurance building belong to the insurance company. tells them that was struck and destroyed an insurance company believed to be owned by hamas according to the israeli military it was targeted because they say it was the secret headquarters for among other things general intelligence and military intelligence so this is
already a very different situation from what we saw ten days ago or so when there was another double rocket attack on tell of evos rockets falling into empty ground in israel's most populous city that time there were about one hundred targets struck by the israeli response inside gaza but mainly empty training grounds empty military facilities this time they are attacking what sites inside the center of gaza city what we are also hearing though from inside there is a statement from islamic jihad one of the armed factions inside gaza saying that for now they are priority. ties in the efforts of the egyptians and of course egypt has been trying to mediate between these two sides for many months now not just trying to tamp down episodes such as this where we have seen major military escalations before in recent months but also trying to create some kind of a longer term truce between the two sides that does suggest at least some offer
towards deescalating the situation however benjamin netanyahu and the israeli army have said that this is an extremely serious incident this home targeted by this rocket coming out of gaza. only these seven people were injured but easily there could have been fatalities and it's in the middle of an israeli election campaign during which netanyahu has been criticized over what his opponent the former army chief benny gantz says is the failure of his gaza policy so we are expecting and the army is saying that this is the beginning of a major military operation arson harry said keep an eye on that story for us terry there on the israel gaza border thank you. all the launch of the airstrikes came as the united states officially recognized israel's claim to sovereignty over the occupied golan heights donald trump signed a presidential proclamation at the white house of the meeting israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu in israel sees the strategically important area back in
one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and has occupied it ever since united nations says the u.s. navy is a unilateral announcement to add it is standing by the current situation of israeli occupation. a white house correspondent kelly halkett joins us live now from washington d.c. secondly this is a big change of course a u.s. policy it's hugely symbolic but why is it happening now. with this is a departure of more than five decades fifty two years to be exact u.s. presidents have always recognized that the occupied golan heights had strategic security importance for israel but they wouldn't go so far as we've seen with donald trump today with this presidential proclamation essentially condoning and recognizing the addicks ation of by israel of syrian territory so this is the question becomes why is it happening now there's no question this is a president that has long portrayed himself as a friend of israel not just with this move but we've also seen with the moving of
the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem even the tearing apart of the iran nuclear agreement this is a president that has worked his supporters the pro jewish supporters that he has also the evangelical supporters and is doing this once again because of course these are some tough domestic times there in terms of the headlines here in the united states the president is dealing with the aftermath the release of that muller program muller report that did not exonerate him when it comes to whether or not there was obstruction of justice in that russia probe that has been ongoing here in the united states for so long so we saw the embattled u.s. president alongside the embattled israeli prime minister in the diplomatic room it was quite striking because they were in matching outfits and even as the headlines for the israeli prime minister were certainly very tense he's cut his trip in the united states short in order to deal with the situation he says back home he made
the time to have this photo opportunity to show that he was friends with donald trump essentially this allows him to have a foreign policy victory even shedding his blue tie that we normally seen wearing to adopt the red tie that we always see donald trump wary this was a photo opportunity there's no question this is certainly an effort that donald trump has tried to try and hand him some. victory even in advance of the israeli elections that are taking place next month because of course we know the israeli prime minister facing corruption charges this was carefully orchestrated but it will certainly be difficult for donald trump and this administration moving forward because while they have recognized this attic sation they've also not recognized or have pushed back on the attic sation of crimea by russia back in two thousand and fourteen and teach people how could in washington thank you.
now british prime minister to resign may has cut off holding another vote on her deal for leaving the european union may told parliament that she doesn't have enough support from m.p.'s to pass the withdrawal agreement but she's fighting plans by a group of rebel m.p.'s to seize control of bracks it. reports were just resigned to go to bars arriving for a crisis cabinet meeting to discuss what happens next politicians from the ruling conservative party trying to find a way forward. think prime minister to use a may acknowledge there isn't currently enough support to push through parliament for a third time that made out the options available unless this house agrees to it no deal would not happen no breaks it must not happen and just slow breaks it which extends article fifty beyond the twenty second of may fall says the british people to take part in european elections and gives up control of any of our boarders
balls money or trade is not a great sit that will bring the british people together she said her government would not back a plan to allow parliament to take control and set out a timetable for so-called indicative votes that could put forward alternative bricks adoptions for a vote the main opposition party say they will support the amendment it passed today in a wednesday m.p.'s will have a chance to vote on a series of terms of proposals we'll have to see what that produces but that at least is parliament trying to rise to reach from stability the public expects us to work as hard as we can to find an alternative way forward i don't know what the outcome will be but that is not an argument for not trying i think we should try if maze deal doesn't pass by april twelfth and no deal is still the default. mission for the united kingdom a scenario the e.u. says is increasingly likely in a no deal scenario the u.k.
will become a third country without any transition rearrangements all e.u. primary and secondary door will cease to apply to the u.k. from that moment onwards there will be no transition period as provided for in the withdrawal agreement this will obviously cause significant disruption for citizens and businesses but more than a million people marched on saturday hoping to avoid that scenario demanding another chance to vote on bricks that the u.k. is already an extra time and may is under huge pressure from pro breck's that conservatives to set a quick timetable for her departure they want to replace her with their own candidate who can guide negotiations in the second phase it's a pressure she might bowed to if she can secure their backing for her deal with the withdrawal agreement was supposed to be the easy part of brecht's it some say negotiating the future trading relationship with the e.u. will be the real challenge our desire landed. sounds like paul meant for
us also debating going on in the house of commons house of commons behind you and me how crucial also night's proceedings to the chances of breaks it actually happening. on the surface tonight's proceedings appear well very procedural but they all crucial when it comes to defining the shape of the bricks and battleground going forward over the course of the week there is an almighty tussle going on in the moment between the government and parliament over who is essentially in control and at ten o'clock local time m.p.'s will vote on a series of amendments three of being selected two of them focus on it having a series of so-called indicative votes as early as wednesday on a range of very different breaks it possibilities and scenarios a soft breaks or for instance a closer alignment with the single market in the customs union revoking article fifty having another breaks at vote and so on and so forth why.
