3:02 am
happy about the news it is amazing we are going to arrive in a place where people understand and listen to us very happy to learn that we have some backing and. it's a new prime minister just set the context has been in power just a week the contest center left coalition government supports a more humane approach than the hardline closed ports policy of the previous interior minister matteo salvini but ministers insist that does not mean it's only now has an open door policy. i believe there's a big misunderstanding about the safe port given to ocean it was assigned to ports simply because the e.u. stuck to our request to take the majority of the microbes it must be clear that already is to ensure that those who arrive in italy or redistributed to other european countries it hasn't stopped salvini from criticizing. redistributions in europe are just words because i am still waiting for the other
3:03 am
european countries to take a few 1000 of those they have already promised to take so this is a surrender we want to contest promises to you. or was it he would return to being a refugee camp. back on board the migrants are already planning where they might be sent germany has promised to take 25 percent of any refugees rescued in the mediterranean but the rest of the distribution is less clear the subject will certainly come up when e.u. interior ministers meet in malta on september 23rd. paul brennan al jazeera. barely i mean ente is general director of doctors without borders and actually joins us on and on the phone now from lampedusa and you must be very relieved at the prospect of these 82 people being able to leave the ship as many of those on board have some horrific stories what can you tell us about what they have to endure and what happens to them now. good evening yes of course we were
3:04 am
very early this morning when we got a very good. deal of that was a place of safety for our $82.00. patients they are not able people. from our compound i mind of a boat or boat. one year old. on the boat there is a small. lady 8 months pregnant. and therefore i mean it was very urgent for them to. perform for some breaking to get pleas for 50 days to stay nevertheless 6 days. in the international waters waiting for the european governments to. reach an agreement in terms of precipitation. as you say and agreement has been an
3:05 am
agreement has now been reached but in many ways this is just a sort of exception from the taliban government it don't really signal a change in policy the foreign minister saying the only reason i agreed to do this is because of the european countries are expected to take the majority of the survivors. this is what we have to and of course this is not a long term solution to the whole system this is why we. will really. hope the story a bit noisy on your part we really hope that it structure solution in terms of structure agreement in terms of redistribution of migrants. you know order to allow a sustainable and predictable implication system for them let's not forget that these are vulnerable people and even 6 days at sea is adding more suffering to what
3:06 am
they already experienced and the absence of a long term solution and it doesn't appear that we can expect one anytime soon what happened in the meantime even if many on these people are rescued what's being done to safeguard their wellbeing and their rights want saying come off the ship. we 1st of all we really hope that. and shows like a sense of what your doctors without borders and that's what made it on a radio show you can like and but also the other ones will be. will be in a situation to keep on. rescuing people in the central mediterranean disease this is very much needed also in the light of what we have seen so far during this year . more than 12000 people try to escape leave and unfortunately more than 600 died at sea one out of 20 had died at sea so this is something that.
3:07 am
again it is we believe that it is very much needed and you know the again you know that will allow it safe and quick these embarkation we we really hope. for cheap at a level in terms of a redistribution otherwise we will probably be in the same situation also in the coming weeks and in the coming months. wishing best of luck with your camera and an anti from doctors that point is in italy thank you for your time thank you. that's it for london for now but i'll be back to bring you more stories from europe a bit later on let's get back to fully into miami thank you very much for that the united states is holding immigration hearings on the border with mexico inside tends away from the public eye is for the trumpet ministrations tough new policy to deal with a record surge in central america asylum seekers. reports from matamoros on the us

3:09 am
the u.s. court it won't be in a court at all the trump administration began hosting video conference sports sessions in the white tents just on the u.s. side of the border an immigration judge calls in from hundreds of kilometers away and the asylum seeker is quickly rushing back here to mexico once the hearing is completed and unlike a traditional court session that is open to the public these are done in secrecy migrant advocates say the lack of transparency is a problem but they're still more worried about the likely outcome of the hearings the supreme court ruled this month the government. can automatically deny asylum to a person who crossed another country before reaching the us that covers everybody in this camp it up and decades of asylum and it's almost a little shellshocked individuals coming from across the world fleeing global strife may not be able to seek the protections they desperately need under the new

policy mother young has no chance of winning asylum in the united states europe in the following i don't have words to describe the harm the situation is doing to all the people in the camp most people here have not grasped the new reality that their asylum cases are now doomed from the start but they're already here they say so they'll try heidi joe castro al jazeera matamoros mexico. israelis go to the polls on tuesday for the 2nd time in less than 6 months spawn minister benjamin nets now failed to form a winning coalition after the last election the campaign has focused on security health care and potential indictment for corruption harry fawcett reports. who sews himself as israel's mr security they were reminded of its frequent absence in around gaza a week before polling day sirens gave notice of a new round of rockets forcing benjamin netanyahu from the stage at
3:11 am
a campaign rally in the southern city of ashdod. his main electoral opponent former army chief benny gantz gaza is netanyahu is a weak point on security policy the deterrence has been absolutely eroded it's time to act it's time to put an end to this it's time to change the leadership challenge netanyahu to come to the southern time of steroids and look into the eyes of its frightened residents but stare out has long been a stronghold of netanyahu as likud party in april's elections 2 thirds of its voters chose netanyahu or his right wing allies over gun says centrist bloc and. we hope it will be fine i don't have the tools that ms anjana will has i hope what should be done is done. netanyahu doesn't bring a security on the day's rockets and wants to that doesn't mean that i stop believing in him on one level netanyahu as approach is hardline israeli snipers
3:12 am
have killed more than 300 unarmed protesters over 18 months of border demonstrations rockets out of gaza. with punitive airstrikes guns calls for a broader military campaign but it's precise outline and prospects of success seem as hazy as the gaza skyline from steroids for all the netanyahu is opponents criticize his gaza policy they have yet to come up with an alternative that is fully believed and supported by the residents of this area and as for the wider israeli electorate that yahoo's message to them as always been that israel's number one security problem is not gaza but iran and so days before the election netanyahu unveiled new allegations of iranian nuclear wrongdoing the only way to stop iran's march to the bomb and its aggression in the region is pressure pressure. militarily israel has been ramping up that pressure striking iranian interests not just in syria but in iraq i didn't gaging in a cross border escalation earlier this month with iran backed hezbollah in lebanon
3:13 am
but all the risks being forceful on iran is seen as boosting netanyahu electoral prospects there are israelis who are disturbed by some of his domestic tactics and he's embroiled in corruption allegations which he denies and so on but on security he seems to be pretty credible and he's also not seen as a military adventure and he doesn't want to drag israel into a major conflict. in recent days though netanyahu iran policy has lost some of its luster donald trump has raised the prospect of a meeting with iran's president a significant blow to netanyahu strategy of maximum pressure the challenge for his opponents is to convince israelis that they can entrust such matters to someone else or it will sit out 07 israel and the white house says it will unveil its plan to end these early palestinian conflict after tuesday's vote has been in the pipeline for more than 2 years but now the man leading that mission has quits many
3:14 am
are asking if the blueprint will ever be released atika hand reports u.s. president donald trump likes to think of himself as a grand deal maker and to his mind there is one deal that is bigger than all the others israel and the palestinians it is from his hatred for many many decades. everybody says this is the cannot be made but he's been promising to reveal the deal to solve the israeli palestinian conflict since soon after he took office more than 2 and a half years ago and now the man who was leading the effort former trump company lawyer jason greenblatt has quit to ellis that's a bad sign it appears that the white house believes it has a plan has a good plan for its prospective and so for green but he clearly didn't have enough confidence to stick. help executed and make it the winning player. looking at the team now it's a skeleton team with green blood gone this is the remaining team the president's

son in law jared kushner brian hook who handles a ran an avi berkowitz until given the task of finding middle east peace this 30 year old was cush assistant who staffers reportedly say was mostly in charge of getting him coffee and setting up meetings the administration says it will unveil its still secret plan after the israeli election but they've made it clear their overall approach take hundreds of millions of dollars in aid from the palestinians in an attempt to pressure them to make a deal promising a $50000000000.00 investment if they do at the same time assuring israel its full support some analysts say that's been a critical mistake one thing we know we're further apart than we ever want to get a deal because the president has given up some of our bargaining positions he moved the embassy to jerusalem he basically has given the golan heights back to israel what is our leverage now to get them to withdraw from all or part of the west bank
3:16 am
in the run up to his own election israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu promised to annex parts of the west bank the white house remains silent now that so much time has passed the u.s. president is facing his own reelection and he's going to be careful not to upset his evangelical base which is very supportive of israel so even though we don't know the exact details of this proposal if the president's going to make a deal as promised it seems quite likely. like or want to accept. al-jazeera washington. still ahead on this news hour a huge eyesore salazar lying in wait ahead of this month's presidential elections as we take a closer look at what's behind the new soybean meal deal between argentina and china and. around the show we'll hear the scales ahead of the tyson fury's fight with all the way to.
