5:03 am
strikes coming from the israeli side and indeed rockets being fired out of gaza territory as well we heard some intercepted near our position here near the northern area of the gaza border in israeli territory and we can still hear strikes going on in the background as well that is the message we're getting from our colleagues inside gaza that after this ten pm local time cease fire arrangements that have been declared by hamas there were still israeli strikes continuing and as i say we have seen rockets still coming out of gaza as well all of this following what happened earlier on tuesday a rocket fired out of gaza territory hitting an israeli family home northeast of tel aviv seven members of that family injured in that strike benjamin netanyahu promising forceful act reaction to that he is in the middle of a very hard fought election campaign in which he has been criticized by his main
5:04 am
challenger the former israeli army chief benny gantz for his gaza policy for not bringing results in terms of containing hamas and so we were expecting a forceful and indeed major israeli military operation multi-story buildings housing what the israeli military says were the hamas internal security and an insurance building which it said was a secret base for the military intelligence among other services as well as is mahoney the political leader of hamas his office building three major targets already destroyed inside gaza the army was promising that there was more to come. odds are a correspondent reports from the scene of one of the israeli airstrikes in gaza and the thought. that this is the result of one of the israeli air strikes that hit a residential building here in central gaza the first floor of the building hosted
5:05 am
the headquarters of the same insurance company the top floors were residential apartments which had been fully destroyed the residence had hardly any time to escape the strike fleeing the building only minutes before it was destroyed by israeli jets the house was hit first by a number of drone missiles then israeli jets fully destroyed it civil defense and ambulances have arrived in this area is full of residential buildings hitting such buildings in central gaza is a sign of an escalation. of the launch of the strikes airstrikes came as the united states officially recognized israel's claim to sovereignty over the occupied golan heights that's in contravention of international law and a united nations resolution israel sees the strategically important area in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and that's a key part it ever since our diplomatic editor james bass has this report. the u.n. secretary general here in new york is watching the situation in gaza with great
5:06 am
concern. he's long warned of the dangers of a new conflict a new conflict now on the way the secretary general is gravely concerned by the latest developments regarding gaza today's firing of a rocket from gaza towards israel is a serious and unacceptable violation we're also wear of the latest reports of firing on gaza in a monitoring events we urge all sides to exercise maximum restraint this very moment the secretary general spokesman was briefing reporters president trump was signing his declaration recognizing israel sovereignty over the go land a direct challenge to the international consensus on the issue for the secretary general it is clear that the status of golan is not change the u.s. policy on the golan is reflected in the relevant resolutions of the security council you may notice a reticence to criticize president trump even though there's little doubt his
5:07 am
proclamation is in breach of international law this will be a difficult issue too for the u.s. is close allies on the u.n. security council which meets to discuss israel palestine on choose day since the start of the trumpet ministration the council has allowed the u.s. to lead diplomacy on this file but there is growing unease among diplomats on gaza don't expect any action other than council members adding their voices to the calls for a straight on go land don't expect any action a tall other council members of very unhappy about president trump's decision but even if they wanted to come up with a statement condemning it the u.s. would block it james pays out his era of the united nations. trump's proclamation has received international condemnation with syria calling it a blatant attack on its sovereignty and territorial integrity it says it has a right to reclaim the territory russia has also warned that the move would further
5:08 am
deteriorate the situation in the region and turkey says the decision by the us is unacceptable and it will take action against the decision while the arab league has described trumps action as legitimate israel occupies nearly two thirds of the wider golan heights as a result of the one nine hundred sixty seven conflict all the annual gathering of the pros rael group known as i pack continues in washington is vice president mike pence addressed the conference and expressed support for strong ties with israel mike hanna has this report. tumultuous applause for u.s. vice president mike pence the trumpet ministration is wildly popular in israel and this reflected in what is normally a bipartisan lobbying organizations penn seizing the opportunity to hammer the democratic party members who stayed away from the gathering in point to protest against the methods of the pro israeli lobby eight democratic candidates for
5:09 am
president are actually boycotting this very conference so let me be clear on this point anyone who aspires to the highest office in the land should not be afraid to stand with the strongest supporters of israel in america restrained applause for the democratic party leaders that did turn up including both the senate minority leader and speaker of the house. the major events of the day those took place down the road with prime minister benjamin netanyahu arrive for a meeting with the u.s. president. to mark the occasion by signing a presidential decree recognizing israel's claim to suffer until over the occupied golan heights. met by the israeli prime minister's breathless gratitude this president over the years israel has been blessed to have many friends who sat in the oval office but israel has never
5:10 am
a better friend than you israeli opposition leader benny gantz as grateful as the prime minister for the u.s. move but at the same time warning against israel taking sides in the u.s. political process we want all of america republicans and democrats all of america's republican and democrats to move forward with us in this spirit of true bipartisanship that saved out that served us so well in the past all delegates here are keenly aware of the elections taking place in israel next month many will be voting in that one but a significant number two will also have a say in the u.s. electoral process in twenty twenty and president trumps the city was pro israel policy perhaps a recognition of this news influence in that process orders mike hanna al-jazeera
5:11 am
washington the move to recognize golan heights has been and seen as a major boost for netanyahu seeking reelection his campaign for apec the april mind vote has been hit by corruption scandals and that's now faces criminal charges in three corruption cases pending a review hearing after the election opinion polls put netanyahu his right wing likud and benny gantz a centrist blue and white party neck. jacobs is a partner with the truman national security project and he joins us now from washington d.c. thank you very much for coming on the program. we've seen that escalation in gaza and southern israel it seems far seems to be holding right now but how important are netanyahu next steps with regards to what he does with security with gaza when it comes to his election campaign. well it's good to be with you and i'm happy
5:12 am
to be here tonight. on yahoo has really is primary ability to win the election is based on the idea that most polling suggests that israelis don't really want to see anyone else in charge of the country they don't really trust anyone else to secure the country to keep the economy going in the way that it's you know as to keep israel in the international scene the way that he has so his handling of the gaza situation currently is vitally important what makes him very complex is his right flank who he has relied on greatly over the last few weeks to maintain his the possibility of being able to put together a governing coalition has actually been pretty negative on his past six past plans in gaza people see that the israelis see that netanyahu has been read as and
5:13 am
he's been very cautious with gaza where is his right flank wants him to be far more aggressive so the next twenty four hours will be very telling in terms of how aggressive netanyahu gets decides to become visit he his right flank and how to keep them out of fight and keep keep them in his corner as we've been saying that part of his campaign has been overshadowed by these corruption charges now given that. he's just a come back from the hours coming back from the united states where trump has. recognized israel's sovereignty over the golan heights how much of a could also is that for him as he goes into his election campaign. it's sizable i mean his entire campaign like that and the messaging that most israelis are seeing is that he has good relationships with donald trump and obviously the relationship between the prime minister of israel and the present united states is vitally important and it's you know leaning so heavily on his relationship with
5:14 am
trump also points to some of his nervousness in terms of. the domestic scandals and this possible indictment that he's facing so in terms of the go on heights i think any you know honest observer of the region will will have recognized that the golan heights in large part would have always remained within israel regardless of what sort of peace proposal at some point maybe signed with you the palestinians or the jordanians or the syrians so the recognition by the american president of the golan heights is part of israel isn't particularly shocking the timing is a little bit surprising it's very much sort of a gift of trying to natanya but at the same time that in ten ya'll is facing electoral difficulties difficulties trump is also needs to keep his right his right flank and particularly the v.n. jellicoe base in the united states happy with him and doing this certainly does
5:15 am
that and speaking of the golan heights there has been international condemnation so it seems trump is the main proponent of recognizing this but how does that what does that do to the balance in the area and the peace accord that is currently in place. well it's not going to change anything in terms of the peace accords with egypt or jordan it changes things going forward and interestingly it's almost an existential change in the way that things need to be calculated whereas since the camp david accords where the idea of land for peace was officiated and the terminations was made that land could be exchanged for peace that's sort of been the calculation of both israeli governments and the arab world and the pals to and the palestinians at large so the idea that the golan has now been. ceded to the israelis with neither a peace negotiation with the syrians although in reality there is no chance of
5:16 am
having a negotiation with the syrians there's no there is no syrian government right now it's a country that's still deep into a civil war of the last several years but the but but the very reality that they've sort of changed the mathematical mathematical equation of land for peace to land for sort of just reality on the ground certainly it could change things going forward. jacobs good to speak to you great to get your insight thank you very much . well still have plenty more ahead this news hour including. a battle between the taliban ads combined afghan and u.s. forces killed at least eighteen people most of them children. and sports want to baseball's most sought after players as a financial homerun we'll have the details later in the program.

british m.p.'s have voted to take control of the brags that agenda away from the government this is another crushing blow to prime minister to resign may not be forced to hand over control to parliament on wednesday m.p.'s will then try and work out a way forward may says the move sets an unwelcome president a barker has more details from westminster m.p.'s of confidently in favor of the oliver letwin amendment that would allow m.p.'s to hold a series of so-called in ticket to votes on wednesday on a whole range of possible breaks in options possibly a much softer breaks into reserve may's own stalled deal one that sees the u.k. remain closely aligned to the customs union and single market possibly also a debate and vote on another e.u. referendum the list is seemingly endless what is very damaging though for the prime
5:18 am
minister is the fact that thirty conservative m.p. and peace from her own ranks have defied her orders and voted in support of this amendment to chose an increasingly lack of confidence in the prime minister and being able to deliver bricks a tool earlier in the day the prime minister says that it wasn't time as yet to bring her story deal back to the house for another go it's already been voted down resoundingly twice before but they could possibly be. a way out of this political impasse for the prime minister if m.p.'s only when the state decides to show a degree of consensus around a much softer version of breaks it into reason may's own plans it could in theory force many hard line breaks the two years who have so far resisted supporting the prime minister time actually decided now to back her deal so we may well see to
5:19 am
reason may's plans return to parliament later on in the week but right now the political scenario and strategy for the government is very unclear m.p.'s have made it very very clear to the prime minister that they are determined to define the brics it battlefield in the coming days. for the second time in a month venezuela has been struck by a major power outage in sixteen of the country's twenty three states have been affected by the blackout but led to this latest outage is unclear at this point but the information minister says the main i'd really like to attack. the is following the story from my cow and columbia. the capital caracas and at least half of them in this well and states suffered another major blackout on monday this was started around one thirty pm it continued through the afternoon and at the beginning of the evening just served as people were trying to go back home metro system was down in

her the latest is strikes and condos were ordered hours after two u.s. soldiers were killed nearby along with four afghan commandos they were on a joint operation against the taliban u.s. forces say they were acting in self defense and take every mission to prevent civilian casualties in contrast they say to the taliban who intentionally hide behind women and children the u.s. is investigating the strike the u.n. wants the findings published in compensation paid to victims in. strikes are an increasing problem in afghanistan u.s. forces relaxed the rules of engagement last year removing certain proximity requirements for is strikes the results according to the un was the deaths of three hundred ninety three civilians more than double the year prior more than twenty five nineteen twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen combined two thirds of the did women and children but i don't believe that they were not al qaeda they were not

a national gun ban overnight but if you can work around the market with eight improve the lives of going on a daily basis it does demonstrate i'm a big you know didn't get sloppy can start making a difference for it down the narrative so that people can issue a reaction to going to use it. astray strict gun control laws are problematic for the n.r.a. is officials have said they fear success could be used to limit gun ownership in america it's the left wing anti gun owners who literally point to australia as this shining model as to why we need gun bans and gun confiscation in the run up to the port arthur massacre australia was tracking on the liberal and right my shoes as the americans since not having any six their brain zero mass shootings of people but not to be a silent in stride no. one nation was coached on how to react if soft a gun was a village to another measure in a stranger in

5:28 am
he's very concerned by the findings of all desirous investigation and thomas has more details from sydney. early on tuesday australia's prime minister scott morrison sent a tweet saying that reports that senior one nation officials call to foreign political donations from the us gun lobby to influence our elections and undermine our gun laws are deeply concerning and that really gets to the heart of the two crucial aspects of this story first that one nation a political party was trying to get money from a foreign organization in this case the national rifle association in order to swing elections here now this secret footage was recorded at the end of last year but since the beginning of this year foreign donations to political parties have been illegal in australia and even then they were highly controversial ironically with one nation foremost among those calling for a change and for foreign donations for political parties to become illegal so not a good look there and then there is the aspect of getting that money to try and weaken australia strict gun laws the gun laws were tightened here in australia in

the wake of a massacre back in one thousand nine hundred six and there's a lot of concern among australians that those gun laws could be weakened in months and years to come but securely of course in the wake of what happened what twelve days ago in new zealand with the massacre in christ church one nation for their part they're trying to turn the tables they put out a statement early on tuesday as well accusing al jazeera of being a foreign agent state propaganda arm of the qatari government they say not a legitimate media organization they have also accused the undercover reporter of himself being a foreign agent and they say they refer this whole matter to the australian federal police questioning whether it amounts to foreign interference into australian politics that's not yet having much traction though at the moment all the pressure here is on one nation themselves. contacted all those who featured in their wrists or ports but no one responded you can watch the full program provide is there is investigative unit it's called how to sell a massacre on tuesday at twelve g.m.t.

5:36 am
again you're watching out of there and here is her minder from main story israel has carried out air strikes across the gaza strip and at least ten rockets have been long on this trip into southern israel the latest reports claim is seen as far as been brokered by egypt but there are still reports of explosions. british m.p.'s have voted to take control of the bags it away from the government prime minister terrorism may well be forced to have it over to parliament on wednesday. and for the second time this month venezuela struck up a major power outage at least sixteen of the country's twenty three states have
5:37 am
been affected the information minister says the country's main hyper electorate has been the attack. ok we now return to our top story on the air strikes between israel and gaza earlier we spoke to al-jazeera senior political analyst marwan bashara and he says israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu is paying the price for his policies. there are no good options at this point in time for prime minister netanyahu i think you've ignored this for a long time he played lots of games with the egyptians and the palestinians over the last several months and he couldn't reach a long term ceasefire as it was expected with egyptian assistance and now he's actually paying the price two weeks before the elections and as much as gaza of course is paying the price so now he has three possible scenarios or three possible options one is to accept the egyptian cease fire to mediation and as we've seen already israel is violating them because i actually don't believe the prime
5:38 am
minister of the now will put his political future and is or security in the hands of egypt that would mediate such a cease fire because that would also mean that hamas and jihad in gaza have a veto over israeli future incursions to gaza the second option is that he does continue this bombings certain selected targets within within gaza which i think within hours maybe a day or two will need to retaliation from hamas and jihad and hence rockets will start falling in various parts of israel and believe me it seems from the various reports jihad and hamas have to pull or quadruple the number of rockets they have in the war of two thousand and fourteen the third option is that he goes all the way which means continue real carpet bombing of gaza leads into invasion and potentially as many of his coalition partners ask is reoccupation of gaza
5:39 am
that will take weeks months that means a huge israeli and of course but assuming casualties and that means he might win some of the battles but he will lose i think a war of this nature if nothing you know fights that he will end up losing that premiership. the elections because israelis couldn't believe that after ten years of netanya after decades of war in the west bank that they are still the target of hamas rockets ok listen let's talk about that this is the longest range missile since the two thousand and fourteen conflict what do you make of the timing of what i mean far as hamas and jihad the concern they are retaliating. is prime minister netanyahu claims from washington that this is a want on aggression and one time means unprovoked aggressive.
5:40 am
bloody attack gaza is under occupation for the last fifty two years and israel just had an incursion into gaza last night and there were attacks in the west bank and in one. israeli prison against palestinian prisoners in fact over the last three years or three and a half years since the two thousand and fourteen there has been some three hundred . israeli incursions into the gaza strip and of course countless numbers of bombardments of arrests in the west bank and so on so forth so the palestinians are not exactly suddenly aggressing israel they are retaliating to first of all and the reality of occupation but also to continuous. israeli incursion. government leaders in mozambique's capital are put oh are being accused of not doing enough to help cyclon survivors in a city where there is a strong support for the opposition a last week strong devastated barrow which is mozambique's fourth largest city our
5:41 am
correspondent tony berkeley takes a look at how survivors are coping. on the streets a view of the clean up of cycling even as destruction has begun it's a massive task volunteers a very ground to try and restore a sense of normality to this ravaged city. mango is the hands on mayor who gets up every day at five am to supervise the operation and try and restore hope we also are trying to tell the people there's no food. but we need to work we need to work off hours so we need to rebuild our selves people are living in schools and on street corners it's a miserable existence even for families familiar with hardship before the psych loan struck this region had an unemployment rate of seventy percent with forty percent of those making living on the streets the majority of big companies that employ most a beer is full time work force have been devastated by it i many have gone bust and
5:42 am
getting the economy back up and running is now one of the top priorities it's been a climatic battleground here but also a political one there has been hardcore opposition and it's voted five times against the ruling for lemo government in parliamentary and presidential elections and some people here believe they're paying a price for that opposition critics accuse government leaders in the capital more previously failing to invest in infrastructure including schools and hospitals and of not doing enough to help victims of the disaster there so question i asked grogs . god why are you bricking psycho. i want to get. only god can tell me that. i'm safe to say that only the central government can tell us what i do a lot giving us government supporters maintaining all it can with limited funds and that. funding is allocated regardless of which party is governing and all provinces
5:43 am

abuse by the department of justice in the f.b.i. the unprofessional conduct the shady behavior nobody seems to think this much important. well that's going to change i hope this summer of miller's report says the special counsel didn't decide if the president obstructed justice saying he didn't conclude the president committed a crime it also does not exonerate him democrats want to know what that means they want to see the evidence for themselves we have a four page summary written by somebody else not by rubber roller and that somebody else is not a disinterested party he's a political appointee. donald j. trump they will call the attorney general and the special counsel to testify before congress and they will push to get the report made public this investigation means trump will avoid a criminal court in this case but democrats are hoping that he can still lose in the court of public opinion. al-jazeera washington. while the miller report to send
