u.s. president fires his hawkish national security advisor saying he strongly disagreed with him. and peace activists protest in london against the city hosting europe's biggest military weapons. nigeria is repaired 3 a thing more than 600 of its citizens from south africa after a week of violence at least 12 people were killed and more than 1000 shops vandalized in attacks on foreign owned businesses in pretoria and johannesburg that violence sparked an international outcry calls for a boycott of south african goods and services now a private nigerian airline is offering free flights to those who want to return. for me the mini is the international airport in johannesburg so how does it look
4:01 pm
now. also i mean the last few passengers are kicking in about 300 of the more than 600 you mentioned will take the 1st free flight today it will be followed by a 2nd flight on thursday we expect those flights to take off in the coming hours it's been quite a long process they've been issues around documentation some people not having the right paperwork some passports expired some people a small group of them have been kept back because they haven't met the requirements by the the immigration and home affairs department here in south africa we also know 1 that there have been concerns around a number of people being flagged by the department of home of face and that's caused a number of delays we know that the nigerian consulate has spent the last few days trying to assist people with the necessary paperwork so we are still to establish exactly how many people do indeed take this flight but of course many have said
4:02 pm
that they are weary of staying in south africa scared of of what may happen given that this is the 1st time that so in a phobic attacks have taken place and even then despite these attacks taking place in 2008 again in 2015 the south african government at this point continues to say that it doesn't believe that we are foreigners in south african in south africa have been specifically targeted they say that the violence is due to criminality and that's how it's approaching the violence that we've been seeing in recent weeks i mean. this is been going on for a while has and the water authorities doing to try and contain this. many here say authorities are certainly not doing enough the south african government has said that it has a plan in place to deal with these the 3rd the violence that we've seen in recent
4:03 pm
weeks and it says that it has an early warning system in place and in fact it's managed to stop the spread of violence in some instances over the weekend they continue to be a confrontations between people from outside of south africa from foreign nationals in between south africans and in that case police were trying to keep the 2 groups apart when foreign nationals felt that a group from johannesburg parts of johannesburg were trying to approach areas that are dominated by foreign nationals they say wanting to attack and wanting to kill them however in this case many of those people say they were prepared to retaliate so in many cases there are people who aren't relying on authorities and the intervention of the south african government they say they don't feel protected and this is why we're seeing in this case at least 600 people leave the country we also understand that there are other governments like muslim b.
4:04 pm
. and zimbabwe that are perhaps considering repack treating their own citizens back to their countries because they're concerned about their well being in south africa all right thanks so much for me the men over applied by the israeli prime minister to actually go israeli settlements in the occupied west bank has been widely condemned the arab league called the move of aggression so he would top itto the foundations of peace in the region jordan's foreign minister home and suffer the call the plan a serious escalation he's warning it could push the whole region towards violence and this turkish counterpart. condemned the plan as racist he's criticizing benyamin that's now versioning what he calls illegal and unlawful messages. how a force that has. done benjamin netanyahu has a habit of promising dramatic announcements in the run up to elections and he did so again on tuesday when it came it was not
4:05 pm
a unilateral decision about amec sation as some had predicted instead the message to right wing settler voters was a vote for netanyahu would in concert with the trumpet ministration mean extending israeli sovereignty to all illegal settlements in the occupied west bank and in the shorter term the annexation of the jordan valley yes. there is one place where it's possible to apply israeli sovereignty immediately after the election if i receive a clear mandate to do so from you the citizens of israel in recent months of late at diplomatic effort in this direction in recent days the conditions for this have ripened today i'm announcing my intention to apply with the formation of the next government israeli sovereignty on the jordan valley and northern to see. the jordan valley represents some 30 percent of the occupied west bank and some of its most fertile agricultural land israeli policy has long been that it needs to retain control there for national security but the prospect of a unilateral israeli annexation as netanyahu is promising would explode any faint
4:06 pm
remaining hopes of a viable palestinian state alongside israel keeping palestinians inside there's a small towns and villages as prisoners without any freedom that is a war crime and has about as we are about to enter the 74th session or the general assembly of the united nations venter national community must stand thought of now or to see a big norm and to stop treating it as a country above the laws of man at the united nations there was further condemnation such a prospect would be devastating to the potential of reviving the goshi asians regional peace and the very essence of a 2 state solution but there is a hugely important caveat to all this to enact his plan now you know 1st has to win the election then create a right wing coalition government that would in dorset and then push it through in the face of international pressure and by then and intensifying battle against his own corruption charges israelis have heard him talk annexation before without
4:07 pm
following through that's a point political opponents and political analysts were making even before netanyahu had finished talking this is electioneering at its best there is no connection between what the prime minister said today and what's going to happen after the election whether he's elected or not this is what i like to say is israeli elections are very much like las vegas and hotels in las vegas what happens during israeli elections stays in israeli elections. later at another campaign event in southern israel netanyahu was briefly rushed from the stage sirens sounding the israeli military said rockets had been fired out of gaza a dramatic end to a day when whether he makes good on it or not he confirmed his position as one entirely at odds with the 2 state solution the concept that remains the international consensus on how the israeli palestinian conflict should end very force that al-jazeera west jerusalem. brahim has more from ramallah in the occupied
4:08 pm
west bank the palestinian president mahmoud abbas said that if israel moves forward with its plans to annex parts of the occupied west bank then he will end all agreements signed with israel and if occasions this is not the 1st time for him to wage such threats however the feeling here among palestinian officials is that this is not an elections campaign and they believe that this has been a coordinated step with the u.s. administration p.l.o. executive committee member at hand i should always said that this is a game changer this is a serious threat to peace and security and she said it shows their intention the long term intention by the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu for ethnic cleansing other palestinian officials have called in the international community to intervene saying it's up to the world to defend its rules meanwhile is rose launched a series of airstrikes on gaza the israeli army says 15 targets were hit officials

4:10 pm
a news briefing at the white house which bolton was initially listed to attend stephen secretary of state might pompey defended the president's decision the president's entitle to the staff that he once said at any moment as a staff person who works directly for the president and states and he should have people they trust and values if there were many times in basketball that i disagree that's to be sure but that's true for lots of lots of people who with whom i interact john bolton was donald trump started national security advisor the longest serving so far but with his stated positions of using military force in iran and north korea he was annoyed fit for a president whose isolationist america 1st policy wanted to reduce the u.s. military footprint reason only told him was against talking to north korea against pulling u.s. troops out of syria and against the president's latest idea of inviting afghanistan's taliban to peace talks at camp david that seems to have been the breaking point we have seen from this and from every other firing but what he really wants are people
4:11 pm
that echo what he already wants to do and with bolton's opposition gone there could be obvious changes for example that there's a better chance the president will meet with his a really encounter part presence very very clear is prepared to meet with no preconditions before he became president donald trump considered john bolton for the role of secretary of state but ultimately decided against it because he felt he didn't look the part mainly because of his mr bush now after 18 months is the national security adviser john bolton once again finds that his face doesn't fit alan fischer al-jazeera at the white house. told trump has reiterated he is open to talks with iran. but apple could have. no problem with iran should straighten out because frankly they're very bad position right now and they should straighten it out straight out. iran's united nations envoy has
