11:03 pm
cloud and rain here really even northeast of our map that's where there's a better chance of getting away with a dry day shanghai there will be at around twenty degrees as we head out towards the west we just got the remains of also i clone here just a few showers some of them again could turn out to be really quite heavy day and they'll stay there as we head through the day on tuesday and into wednesday elsewhere is now a lot calmer but it's also really quite a haul for many of us as well new delhi up to forty two degrees on wednesday of the not poor all the way up to forty three to just very very hot and many of us here i was a western for the arabian peninsula where there's a good deal of cloud over saudi arabia and that's still going to be with us as we head through the day on wednesday here in doha the winds will be turning from the northwest and that should ensure the a gets a little bit clearer not quite as hazy as it has been over the past few days.
11:04 pm
just look at. also voted on which it was supportive of who supported the taliban who is now interfering in libya who is now interfering in the should i just look at the realities on the ground is it the arraigning foreign minister mohammad javid zarif talks to al-jazeera. you're watching all the syria time to recap the headlines now there is a cease fire agreement between israel and palestinian groups in gaza and egypt

11:06 pm
economy take a as a terrorist organization go live now the center. for us from. is this calming down kurdish tensions. while. the timing is actually critical some the timing of this visit actually the lawyers have stated that they visited up the law on may the second but they waited for four days to end now said to the press and public and now people are questioning why they had to wait for four days and off course this weekend last saturday turkey and turkey have been attacked by the wide p.g. factions in in syria and p k k factions in from iraq and three soldiers lost their lives and some civilians died as well so the time of.
11:07 pm
being granted access to these go years is very important for now we have no reactions yet from any official. official institutions but i have to i have to underline that this this was it happened under the under the control of the government as well the government the authorities gave this permission it is very important because this is the first time that he contacted his lawyers in law in eleven years and this is the second face to face meeting him besides his brother in january two thousand and nine thousand basically it alone made a call to end the hunger strikes across six the prisons in turkey some kurdish political figures have been under arrest for since. the failed coup attempt actually in two thousand and sixteen and they have initiated a hunger strike to protest to give a break to the isolation of the p.k.
11:08 pm

11:09 pm
all over thanks for. so then the military council is expected to unveil a transition plan on monday as protesters continue their demands for civilian rule the military and protest leaders of deadlocked over who will control the government the two sides agreed to form a joint military civilian council last week they failed to agree on who should be in the council coalition of opposition parties have submitted draft proposals for a way forward. the international criminal court has ruled not to refer jordan to the un security council for failing to arrest former sudanese president omar al bashir two years ago he's wanted by the i.c.c. for crimes committed in darfur by militias aligned to his government but court says jordan sure arrested bashir on his request when he visited our man in march two thousand and seventy the shield was there to attend an arab league summit stephanie decker has more from the hague. it took more than half an hour for the judge to
11:10 pm
read out the background and the verdict of jordan's appeal basically unanimous of all judges saying that jordan should have handed over the form a sudanese president omar al bashir to the i.c.c. when he visited a man in two thousand and seventeen but they will no longer be referring jordan to the un security council it really had to do with the issue of the immunity of a head of state sudan is not a signatory to the i.c.c. but jordan is now the judges here ruling that omar al bashir did not enjoy that immunity that jordan failed under its legal obligation as a signatory to hand him over but the bigger question really is this is where does the i.c.c. stand what kind of power does it have what are the consequences of actions like this the case against omar al bashir the arrest warrant has been out for ten years now the i.c.c. accusing bashir of genocide war crimes and crimes against humanity he is of course at the moment in a high security prison in sudan the sudanese military has said he will not be
11:11 pm
handing him over and that they intend to try him in sudan the u.s. is deploying an aircraft carrier group to the middle east to send what it calls a clear message to iran the u.s.s. abraham lincoln and support ships have been dispatched national security adviser john bolton says it's in response to what he calls troubling developments in the region why this is a professor at the department of american studies at the here on university he says the latest move by the u.s. could benefit the iranian government. the people hear about a military confrontation so the money that the government spends on iran's military now it's very much justified because the threat of military is dominated by the. republican guards corps which john bolton put this terrorist organizations a few weeks ago and so the support for the military increases in iran we have
11:12 pm
this analogy is really the flag and that's what's happening in tehran people understand that their own honey administration has been trying to reduce tensions with the new united states that's why we had the nuclear agreement. with the obama administration and the fact that the us got out of the agreement without any reason any serious reason and the fact that they are talking about sending. ships to the persian gulf and talk about. military confrontation in reality is something that worries the iranian people and that is actually in benefit of the iranian government. at least fifty five people have been killed and dozens more seriously injured when a fuel tanker exploded in new jersey capital now make it happened overnight in the airport district near the station at least thirty people were taken to hospital millions of young south africans will be voting in wednesday's general election
11:13 pm
some of them say they're turning their backs on politics because they feel ignored for made up of the reports from. cosmetics i legit displaying fake honesty but i would bet it but we do know it's broken if in fact his expression of i'm for broke trying to get a degree people told me to get into if we shared the life that i've been it's through music they're quite elizondo expresses how he wants to change his life but the twenty two year old student belongs to a group of musicians our. stuff first time voters in this election here about do you feel like the issues. of the guy who's twenty six students are those issues being addressed not necessarily what will still wait now those people of all political parties making a lot of promises that don't deliver but now we just stuck in the middle we just have to make a choice any random choice right now i just feel like i'm just going to vote in vain because i've been given the opportunity of two votes not because i feel like
11:14 pm
the urge to vote i'm just gonna vote in vain to be honest with you i think there's a lot of corruption in politics and that's why. for me i'm stepping away from politics is. interested in clintons because the corruption that's going. to be under a few. hundred piers let me get a degree people probably don't get it we say the left but odds are with the things that i think i'm seeing this kind of progression we hope in science and history the end of jobs in the system top why that should have all the amongst the group is an information technology graduate and a civil engineering student they both worry they won't find jobs when they qualified like of course an article malo he's been without work for years qualified enter to turn on thing that's not working. been applying applying apply still i have nothing. that's my reason lots of world government statistics show that
11:15 pm
a half of young people don't have jobs more than nine million south africans why eligible to vote haven't registered more than five million of them under thirty the number of young people aged between eighteen and nineteen hoover where just had to vote for the first time has dropped by almost half compared to the last election five years ago many young people feel that instead of voting their voices of bitter hurt in other ways in the last three years thousands of students have protested against high university and demanding free education for students from low income families if you look at the poverty line this is it and this is the people so it doesn't make sense for us to just keep on voting just for the sake of politics that apathy may hurt the ruling african national congress the party scene is responsible for liberating black south africans from a part eight many young voters say the freedom they enjoy today means little if
11:16 pm

news continues here in knowledge of syria after the talk to. stay with us. on counting the cost this week trump the world economy all shutting down iran's ability to sell oil and indestructible phone screen of chinese tech giants of the f.b.i. state. the inventor who suspects this technology was stolen counting the cost on al-jazeera. the. july twenty fifth i believe is the moment so the day. after more than a decade of on and off negotiations world powers reach a nuclear deal with iran together with our allies and partners we reached a historic understanding with iran which a fully implemented will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon and make our country our allies and our world safer the
11:22 pm
signatories of the joint comprehensive kind of action saw it as an opportunity a deal under which iran agreed to eliminate its stockpile of enriched uranium and reduce centrifuges in return all u.n. security council and multilateral sanctions were lifted but not everyone was happy with deal would give an unreformed unrepentant and far richer terrorist regime the capacity to produce many nuclear bombs in fact an entire nuclear arsenal with the means to deliver. what a stunning historic mistake the campaign against the so-called iran nuclear deal succeeded when donald trump moved into the white house i am announcing today that the united states will withdraw from the iran nuclear deal iran insists it will remain in the nuclear deal and so did other signatories such as france germany and britain. the white house's classification of iran's
11:23 pm
revolutionary guards as terrorists there has responded by labeling u.s. troops in the middle east as terrorists. but under unilateral u.s. sanctions iran's economy is struggling its influence in the region from syria to yemen is under the spotlight so how will iran cope with the crisis affecting everyone in the country the iranian foreign minister mohammad javad zarif talks to out of there. let's begin with the latest legislation that has come out. about declaring u.s. forces in the middle east as terrorists describe to us why do you think that is important and what will that achieve. well it's not a measure that we have taken a product of beauty in fact it was a reaction to a decision by the united states by good ministration to declare. the g.c.d. stomach evolutionary god corpse as
11:24 pm
a terrorist organization as you know destroy organization has been in the forefront of fighting terrorism in iraq and in syria enough on the stand but unfortunately because of their own interest and because of the fact that a few in our region and and in the united states want to stick it up trouble in this region as you know with netanyahu said in hebrew tweet that this was on his suggestion that president trump put the o g c on the f t o list so this was a decision by the united states and united in parliament and before that iran's national security council simply took a measure in response to this action i ask you this question because so far what you've been telling the world is that iran is not looking for confrontation in iran does not want to escalate tensions but would measures like this do you think that
11:25 pm
is coming from a nation in which wants to deescalate but certainly iran does not want confrontation and escalation but we have not lived seven thousand years by escaping from those who want to bully us we have been very clear that we have no interest in escalation we have been clear that persian gulf and the strait to hold most is our lifeline we depend on them for our likelihood and we want them safe secure and free for navigation of all countries including iran but that also comes when some of the generals have made remarks saying that if iranian oil doesn't pass through the strait of hormuz no one else as well it's up to the united states to make that decision vetted it wants to make a. part of a that is on our doorsteps unsafe for us we were not
11:26 pm
allowed to have made the second the sanctions waiver that the united states had given to oil importing countries or doing business that iran is exploiting the strait of hormuz is going to be a point of contention what is your plan then we believe that the united states cannot take any coercive measure in the persian gulf or in the strait of hormuz if it tries to take course of measures it will be reciprocated by iran but that i don't think is in the cards we will continue to sell our oil. and we will see customers and we will always remember those who worked with us during times of difficult year all production has come down from in two thousand seven hundred to two and a half million barrels to somewhere between one point seed one point nine million barrels now and it is having an impact on the iranian economy so eighty percent of your exports are from hydrocarbons the sanctions you can call them illegal but are having an impact on iran and that is why we call it economic terrorism because as
11:27 pm
they have said publicly including secretary pompei. and others they want to put pressure on the iranian people in order to change a policy that is very the united states has acted for forty years and particularly since president from came to office it was elated a commitment by another us president president obama and international relations you consider a government continue ation of the previous government last i heard there was no revolution in the united states people just got the electoral college. pointers presidents from the elected president of the united states so that's all that that's all that happened in the united states what is import. and is that these sanctions are not only equal and have no legal effect not no economic effect
11:28 pm
but they also won't have any political effect the success or failure of these sanctions is going to be who buy their on the oil so we are talking about countries such as china turkey and india who are your major oil importers are they going to continue to buy a normal two points first world these countries have declared that they do not recognize u.s. sanctions for. their private companies may because of u.s. corage and because of their heavy hand that the united states is exercising on these issues may find it just prudent for themselves in the short term and i don't think it's prudent for anybody in the medium and long term to decrease but that doesn't mean that the government's agree and the governments have announced that they do not recognize what is your plan how are you going to make sure that the people of iran don't feel the crunch that the united states wants them to feel well first of all we will continue to engage with our partners we have developed various
11:29 pm
schemes one of them will be in the long run. to the detriment of the united states and i think that is becoming increasingly popular and that is not to use dollars for your transactions a second is an instrument that we are developing with the europeans. we have already developed with our neighbors and we have developed them with the chinese and that is not to engage in transfer of money across the borders which is where the united states would step in and try and for would try to twist the arms of people who are engaged in it eagerly and on and off with it i believe the united states is not serving us interests more than the united states it's serving israeli interests and unfortunately there are a couple of people in out of reach who have aligned themselves with this really interests this is a capital of
11:30 pm
a small group which i have called them to between both bibi netanyahu been ziad and been sound man who are pushing. the united states and president trump into conflict and into disastrous situations and they will be deferred just to suffer the consequences unfortunately what do you mean they will be the first to suffer the consequences and does that mean that iran is going to retaliate that does that mean there's going to more instability in the region stability in this region is why you thought for us we want to have good relations with all our neighbors. with everybody in the g.c.c. we have proved it through our assistance to qatar when qatar was being strangulated by some of the members of the b. team. and we will stand by our friends in the region we have stood
11:31 pm
by turkey when they were under could be stood by iraqi kurdistan where they were being faced with the tac we will always stand for stability in the streets we love nothing more than having excellent relations with saudi arabia united arab emirates and every other member of the g.c.c. this is our hope our expectation but there are requirements we need to end this bloodshed in yemen before we go into the region let's talk about. what you've described so far it seems to feel that iran is the victim here but there is a consensus amongst many countries in the region and in the united states. that iran is responsible for what is happening the united states insists that it is the nuclear deal which favored iran your neighbors insist that it is meddling in the
11:32 pm
internal affairs of other countries but the ditch they make and the basis for imposing these sanctions and coming out against iran do you not think that there is any credence to those claims first of all there is no consensus to consensus in the international community is that the united states and those neighbors that you talked about are in fact meddling in the affairs of others look at what's happening in north africa look at what's happening in. so it's not any consensus but that is exactly the problem a couple of countries in our region. plus israel did not like the nuclear deal from the very beginning. the rest of the international community believe that it is a unique historic achievement for diplomacy of course if you had other intentions if you wanted to securitize iran if you wanted to portray iran as a threat which it wasn't then that would have been different and you did not like
11:33 pm
the nuclear deal and some in our region where of that nature but well just look at the history who supported saddam hussein who when it invaded iraq who supported the taliban when they took over afghanistan. who supported al kut who supported isis who supported nasir who is now interfering in libya who is now interfering in the sudan just look at the realities underground is it iraq it was iran who killed who tried to suffocate qatar who tried to wage a coup in turkey who dismembered a journalist who beheaded thirty seven individuals and crucified one of them in the street just look at the realities on the ground you don't need to look at the you know and the euro you don't need to look at. allegations just look at the realities
11:34 pm
on the ground who came to the support of the kuwaitis who came to the support of the qataris when they were being suffocated who went to the support of iraq yes who went to the support of iraqi kurds when when isis was a their doorsteps so look at who is responsible for all the maladies and now we get to israel who is an exciting other countries territories who is developing nuclear weapons who is destroying villages who is on a large scale violating the basic rights of the palestinian people who is the aggressor that has invaded everybody in the region from its attack on iraq nuclear facility in iraq to its daily bombardments of syria jordan palestine lebanon to just look at the history. and they are pushing this war mongering policy
11:35 pm
on everybody everybody will be a victim of it the united states is not is not going to make any gains president trump said that the united states spent seven trillion dollars in our region and destroyed our region and got a lot of american blood on its hands because because of the fact that the americans died in this region without any reason without any purpose but they say that those americans more than four hundred of them died. at the hands of g.c. and its affiliates militias another it's a base this lie they made the same allegations when they wanted to invade iraq the same group the same group of people who made all those allegations and who got the united states and our region into a terrible costly war that has only given rise to terrorism are the ones who are making these allegations these are a bunch of lies that have no basis in reality it is in fact the united states armed
11:36 pm
forces that have killed the iranians they have shot down an iranian civil airliner killing two hundred ninety passengers they paid compensations for that it shows that they even accepted responsibility for that but is that the threat that now there is ground that is being laid for a military confrontation with iran there are people who are planning for that there are people who are plotting for that so we are those people became you see that they are very worried. to bolton has called for war it's not that i'm inferring from anything he said that he had an article in twenty fifteen to prevent an iran bomb bomb bomb iran that's the title of his article in the new york times only four years ago that. last year he asked the pentagon to develop plans for
11:37 pm
attacking iran these are realities on the ground if you are saying that this is all that is being planned against iran what is iran's plan that our plan is to continue to live proudly peacefully and to work for progress and peace and dialogue in this region i have suggested a regional dialogue for countries in our region need to get together countries in the persian gulf can only rely rely on them says we cannot rely on foreigners we need to rely on on ourselves and iran is ready to sign non-aggression treaty with every single country in the persian gulf every single country let's come to the achievements of iranian forces enter your administration now you can actually hop on a car into iran you could cross over and you would be protected by iranian forces then you cross over into iraq forces which are backed like the house the shabby and
11:38 pm
funded many of these militias by iran then you cross over into syria again forces which are backed by iran and you go all the way up to hezbollah territory in lebanon are you proud of that achievement i actually am proud of the fact that we can go to these places without any force. president trump has more forces in any of his countries and iran has ever had and he is entering into one of his garrisons at night and leaving at night i had the opportunity and the privilege of going to iraq going to five cities without any military presence without any serious i mean beyond the normal security arrangements go to the meetings goes to the business centers go to the shrines talk to the people our president went to iraq and went to the cities the other day i was in the mask as i walked in the bus out of central bus out of the massacres as i was going to
11:39 pm
historic places and to the shrines so what you do have troops in syria no no we don't have what is what is important is the united states has more people with boots on the ground in syria in iraq and in their banan and it does not have the feeling of security it is because it has made the wrong choices it hasn't. connected itself to wrong people mostly to people who hate the rights of the people mostly to people who engage in acts of terrorism i go to in iraq e kurdistan i go to damascus i go to beirut i go to karbala i go to niger i go to various iraqi cities and i feel at home not because we have troops there but we can because we have strong bonds of friendship and brotherhood with the people that as i feel with the people in doha i feel with the people even in saudi arabia i don't have any trouble walking in the streets of saudi arabia i don't have any trouble walking in the streets of the united arab emirates because we have strong bonds of
11:40 pm
brotherhood i hope the two governments in saudi arabia and in the united arab emirates come to their senses and understand that we are neighbors forever that the united states only wants to milk them but you do realize that this is. this is something which makes your neighbors nervous because as you said you would obviously you're won't go into the details of how these militias have been operating and not just the iranian military itself but but groups that it supports have been operating in iraq against eisel with the with the iraqi to against i sadly only charles that government and with the with the syrian group with the syrian government what we are doing in lebanon in syria in iraq elsewhere we work with the government on the invitation of the government this is our principle we help the iraqi kurds against isis or we help the iraqi central government against isis we helped help the syrian government against isis we helped
11:41 pm
the lebanese government against isis this is our policy which is consistent consistency is the focus of our policy we run a policy that is for stability that is why we support the government of qatar we reject any a pressure on the government of qatar as we reject any pressure on the government of turkey but that's the same argument that the saudis make for intervening in yemen they are there on the request of the legitimate government which the who these overthrew and who iran supplied last i checked the president the former president of yemen. we drew from all of this in spite of the request made by many then he was reinstalled by saudi arabia we cannot change history these are facts of history but in yemen since day one we called for
11:42 pm
a ceasefire you remember our four point peace plan ceasefire. immediate humanitarian assistance and inclusive. among gay minis and an inclusive government this has been the basis of iran's policy we requested the ceasefire be a ceasefire we used our influence in yemen to get a cease fire unfortunately saudi arabia and the u.a.e. believe that they can make a quick quick tree and for the past almost fourteen months they have used all these huge weapons that they're getting from the united states sixty seven billion dollars worth of weapons were purchased by saudi arabia twenty two billion dollars worth of weapons purchased by the united arab emirates against a group of people who hardly have anything to eat and they haven't been able to succeed it means that trying to impose anybody's veil on the population of another
11:43 pm
country will not work if it could work if military intervention could do work it sure worked in yemen it doesn't so if they are accusing us of intervening militarily elsewhere they should see why they are not succeeding in yemen with all of the military hardware that they have been all the support that they're getting from even if it means that they are making a mistake with not intervening militarily anywhere because military intervention is doomed to fade as they are fading in yemen but what about syria i would say is in syria a clear contradiction of or you know that you know we are easy troops don't care if we did not intervene militarily that we were asked to send viruses in order to fight a terrorist organization our planes are not bombing syria. look at the reality
11:44 pm
we are there fighting alongside the people of syria the government of syria to fight against foreign sponsored terrorist organizations saudi planes are bombing yemen iraqi planes are bombing q.m. and we ask them as brothers as neighbors this policy will not get them anywhere our arms are open to them we want to have peace with everybody in this region and we want everybody in this region to have peace with each other that is why we rejected pressure on qatar and we called for dialogue we reject pressure on any country we would reject any pressure on saudi arabia for that matter we believe that all our countries in this region should work together our destiny is intertwined we cannot distance ourselves from each other in this region let's come back to iran. you resigned in february saying there were shortcomings what were
11:45 pm
there and so i resigned in february because pictures were published in certain papers in iran and on television that question the integrity of my office and question the authority of the foreign minister in conducting foreign policy because i was shown not to be present in an important meeting it was made clear by everybody the following day that that was not intentional and i did not see any reason to continue to insist on my resignation particularly after the president rejected my resignation so the word as clear as it should for the word of the great point was that it was because of general hossam silly money bringing in president bashar assad and your office not being involved so clearly my office was involved we were not informed of the exact details of the arrival and that is understandable the only thing that was not understandable was broadcasting pictures without my presence in it and it was it was rectified later and i think we've been working
11:46 pm
very well and generously money and i have been working very well for the past twenty five years and i don't think this will have any will put any dent in our friendship but you do realize that is something that your critics will take and say that like i'll quote mike pompei are saying that he called you in in his words quote one of the front men of the car apologist mafia and we know that he makes all final decisions this is what they used to criticize you for saying that it is somebody else who is pulling the strings and this democracy is just part of an american president once the buck stops here in every country somebody makes a final decision but there is a democratic i don't know whether circus a pump is very happy with his some of his allies in the region who don't know the meaning of election and who behead individuals and take that head crucified very around the streets. i mean i know i know his definition of democracy and it stinks
11:47 pm
are you happy so far with the government that you've run your your party has run with president rouhani in the chair have you achieved what you wanted to achieve for the people of iraq we have been under tremendous pressure from outside and we are dealing with that so i don't i don't think anybody in the current administration in iran is very happy with the current situation in iraq but we know that we have done our best and we will continue to do our best and we will continue to correct our mistakes finally the next time we meet i mean going to meet jawad zarif the diplomat or are we going to meet a candidate running for president no use muto words only for the purpose of message of other of the foreign minister of the islamic republic of iran thank you very much for talking to others there.
11:48 pm

11:49 pm
will be in and we. destroy a warning that millions of species are at risk of extinction which could lead to serious consequences for humankind. a looming showdown between the u.s. attorney general and democrats who want him to release the full uncensored moller report on russian meddling. in the u.s. and the naval battle group to the gulf region ramping up the trumpet ministrations aggressive stance on iraq. city have the chance to go back to the top of the english premier league a win against leicester. title rivals little pull with just a game left in the sea. welcome to the program a ceasefire when the violence in the gaza strip and southern israel appears to be holding after coming into effect in the early hours of monday morning it was brokered by egypt and qatar after three days of rocket attacks on southern israel
11:50 pm
from gaza and israeli strikes on the palestinian territory well twenty five palestinians have been killed including a fourteen month old child and two pregnant women and rockets fired from gaza have killed four people in southern israel where the taj going to joins us live now from near the israel gaza security fence and so what do we know about the cease fire deal and is it holding. well so far things have remained calm the ceasefire went into effect four thirty monday morning it's also the beginning of the a sonic holy month of ramadan el jazeera spoke with a representative of a palestinian group the palestinian. popular rather resistance committees he says that hamas was looking for concern israel to abide by an agreement it had made in april after the last bout of violence and apparently israel agreed to do
11:51 pm
that all these measures that it needs to implement are all focused on alleviating the humanitarian situation on the gaza strip and they include expanding the zone in the mediterranean sea for fishermen to catch seafood allowing certain goods into gaza remember there's been a years long blockade specifically allowing industrial type of goods that israel had previously said it was worried might be used to make weapons and allowing qatar to transfer forty million dollars to pay government workers and assist the poor and on the long term fraud the hope is that israel will abide by its agreement to allow five thousand gazans into israel to work and to establish industrial zones along the israel gaza border on the show what's been the reaction to the cease fire when both sides. well let's start from the people angle in gaza we spoke to
11:52 pm
a man who had returned to the rubble of his home he said my home is gone in minutes i don't know what i'm going to do or where to go we spoke to another man who said he is relieved for the temporary pause and that is how many view this by the way in the violence between hamas and israel but he alleged that israel was not distinguishing between civilians and fighters and was quote killing palestinians indiscriminately on the israeli side in ashdod we spoke to a woman one man was killed there while attempting to seek cover from rocket fire we spoke to a woman there who says that she feels that the israeli government capitulated yielded too soon to hamas and that the airstrikes and the force should have continued now let's look at the official level you have hamas and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu not really dialing down their rhetoric today a representative of hamas says that the resistance will continue that there will be
11:53 pm
another escalation of violence until they gain their rights netanyahu saying that the campaign is not over and that they are preparing for a continuation but he did use the words patience and deliberation were required it's interesting and it's clear both sides were not keen to see an escalation in violence although it has to be noted this was the deadliest cycle of violence between hamas and israel since two thousand and fourteen but with the start of ramadan israelis preparing to celebrate their national day and hosting people from around the world next week for a musical competition called euro vision it seems that this both sides were keen to tamp down the violence before it escalated among the israeli opposition and in some of the israeli media netanyahu is taking a beating. being called as surrendering to hamas is blackmail and opposition leader
11:54 pm
benny gantz who was hoping to replace netanyahu during last month's elections said that uncompromising force should have been used and all this current cease fire agreement does is pave the way to the next military confrontation and indeed that is in keeping by the way with what we've seen in the last couple years which is intermittent spasms of violence followed by egypt coming in mediating a cease fire and then a return to what is described as calm and then the cycle begins anew all right to natasha the name there on the israel gaza border thank you where you are joining me is a retired israeli air force colonel and was a spokesman for former prime minister as you've sunk rabin and shimon peres in the one nine hundred ninety s. he says both sides want the ceasefire to hold. both sides have interests to keep it hamas doesn't want those demonstrations against. this to happen again and that the now it's time to form his government into. a sure reserve base
11:55 pm
that he's on top of things so i think it will hold the question is. will it lead to another cycle in the few months all can we move toward something else the should be ways in which to alleviate the living conditions of the people of gaza and indeed guess what was the first to suggest if not the i.d.f. itself so it's up to this really government to take some steps benefiting on this cease fire and to see how we can get together with egypt's qatar maybe the international community do something for their welfare of the gaza the problem is that gaza is controlled by the from us and you know that qatar gives a lot of money to hamas and you don't know how much of it goes instead of the neat people who needed to building the talk tunnels into israel so we have a problem here but we should definitely take
11:56 pm
a positive approach and think about the welfare of the people of gaza as the main priority but let's talk about duty as the secretary general of the palestinian national initiative he says frustration has been growing in gaza and how to end the occupation. they have used peaceful protests against the israeli operation under siege and there is a lot of that was the killing of two hundred twenty palestinians by the israeli me including the us unlike john who has a first aid program and three other including many lives and this was a vote issue of it basic right now will israel can bomb but. of course the gazans will because for good what we have is our currents if the united states and is there once you can ask them to provide hamas with more sophisticated equipment so that they got indicted could more properly but i do not think from the distance
11:57 pm
of you know this is three days that i am asking us about this incident it was israel that was planted this is the city israelis were killed a lot of them were soldiers twenty eight palestinians more than twenty four of them went to the solution is to fix the moving siege complete the siege is inhuman and acceptable and should be left to complete the second thing is soften the hardest known problem the palestinian problem is in the fact that we are in those areas we are now subjected to a system of our product that has to end with out in the book of creation which has become prominent us to completion in modern history so that is military council is expected to unveil a transition plan as protesters continue their demands for civilian rule the military and protest leaders are deadlocked over who will control the government the two sides agreed to form a joint military civilian council last week but they failed to agree on the members
11:58 pm
of that council a coalition of opposition parties have submitted drop proposals for a way forward will he be moved and joins us live now from the capital khartoum he was so what more do we know about this transition plan that the military council is hoping to unveil. what they're in at the moment we don't know what kind of plan sorry we don't know what plan the military council is going to agree on but what we do know is the plan that has been presented to it by the opposition coalition the opposition coalition says that it's in visioning a form four year transition period which is going to be led by a presidential council a transitional transitional legislative assembly made up of at least one hundred twenty members forty percent which should be female and. a prime minister an executive body now they're saying that their argument with the military council is that the military council wants a military majority and the transitional government while they want a civilian majority they're saying that that's not what they've been protesting for for the past four months they've been protesting to have the military take power
11:59 pm
from the president are going to force a minute to read leader himself so at the moment we're still waiting to hear from the military council on whether they will agree on the proposal that has been presented to them by the opposition coalition of course the opposition coalition and the military council are still in talks has been going on since president bashir was ousted on the eleventh of april mediators have also stepped in and said that they're offering an alternative council so there will be a transitional council and a defense council where the military will have the majority and will have basically hands or it will be handling security and safety issues around the country so that's something they said they're also studying but at the moment it doesn't look like they're any closer to forming a transitional government then they were when president bashir was ousted on the eleventh of april so he about how it's like to go down with the opposition on those protesters on the streets who are keeping up the pressure on the military. while they're saying that they will continue with the pressure and till a civilian government or is formed or a transitional government is formed it comes down to the opposition and the military council and the mediation in the middle there the opposition today had
12:00 am
a presser there saying that they do not mind a mediation in the middle but they do not want the military in control so it comes down to how the mediators handled the two sides african union special envoy today also came to her to him and he said that he's trying to mediate not just between the opposition coalition and. the military council but between the various stakeholders and international international actors to try to be united so that a transitional government is formed the a you of course has given sudan sixty days to form a transitional government but again there and they're not any closer to forming a transitional government today than they were when the system started last month today marks exactly a month since the thetan started but they're not closer to forming a transitional government so the protesters outside in front of the army headquarters are battling a temperature of forty five degree celsius saying that they are going to stay there and till a transitional civilian government is formed thank you now the international criminal court has ruled not to refer to jordan to the u.n. security council for threatening to arrest the former sydney.
