12:00 am
shelling forced evacuation of the city's university on thursday schools and residential neighborhoods in the town of considerably were hit in what the u.n. described as the worst barrel bombing campaign in fifteen months in libya's designated a deescalation zone under an agreement between russia and turkey let's bring in a hike of women in beirut he's the project director for iraq syria and lebanon with the international crisis group. at the assad regime backed by russia is clearly escalating its military operations across northwest syria in places like it was the reason why we're seeing these increased strikes by the russians well i mean this has been going on for a couple of days now an escalation probably has started way back. we've seen that from both sides we've seen some of the media radical factions and. actually launching missiles at russian air bases mainly him so it's coming from both sides it's. quite difficult to tell if this is sort of
12:01 am
a self ignite escalation or if there's a larger plan behind my this out this is the latest violation of an eight month old truce brokered by russia and turkey that's supposed to protect residents of the deescalation zone so where do we stand with that deal. so basically we still stand where that deal happened for them most of that deal that was concluded in september in sochi have not changed and attack any and any major offensive on egypt would cause the. refugee crisis for turkey in particular and that's why the turks have made it very clear to russia that they don't want that to happen in many circumstances and there have been been some progress in terms of having share patrols or a coordinated patrols along the cease fire line took the russian controls but it's
12:02 am
not enough it's clearly not enough progress and it is missiles that have been shot recently showing now the facts show it needs to improve occasions do happen and the civilians of bear the brunt of it so we are still without whereas a fire. still with the same situation but clearly more has to be done to step in here and the u.n. estimates that around two hundred sixty thousand people have been displaced in northern hama and southern italy because of the escalation are we likely to see this result in a new humanitarian crisis in the region. if there is a real offensive there's a real attack and really i mean an attack that is aimed at penetrating ms eventually or that. the central parts of it clipped like lips town itself come on and others then we going to have an enormous
12:03 am
crisis and then we're talking about two hundred thousand but up to a million of people who probably will be on the rules right now i'm still hopeful that is not going to happen i'm still hopeful it is will be contained ok food out of confrontation will cease fire line let me squeeze in a final question for you what sort of wider message is russia sending with these increased and strikes is this about letting everyone know that when it comes to northwest syria that moscow is in charge moscow calls the shots well that we know already what message they want to send now specifically is that hard to tell they may want to tell a joke is that it has more they may want to tell turkey that it shouldn't get too friendly with the united states for the east talks there have been positive recently it may terrible to extent they really should buy this one good or kind of all kinds of messages might be wrapped into that and i think it's also telling that
12:04 am
you have these in india if you are attacked us with your missile. you pay the price hike of them and thank you very much for talking to us you know where it was we're . now he's nine soldiers have been killed in an attack on a training camp for forces loyal to the libyan war not only for have tom hougaard blaming the attack on ethnic taboo forces aligned with the un recognized government in tripoli mahmoud up there why because more now from the libyan capital. now have to his forces in the south of libya say that they are calling on their simple command of have to us was in the east of libya to send more troops to sustain and maintain security in the sales of libya we know that the city of. forces loyal to the world have since february but this has been all was unstable especially since help for those forces should civil campaigns and the
12:05 am
there are civil military groups in the cells who are opponent of the warlord have especially fighters and also fighters from. minority in the south of libya some of the armed groups in the south of of libya which are opponent to have to some of them are allied with the under recognized government and others are allied with their own tribal affiliations some of the tribes and the toward tribes generally speaking of libya there are civil airports and also oil fields or who have been taken control of by have to recently but the situation now remains very on a stable spatially after most of the troops have put have troops that have been
12:06 am
controlling and securing the airport in the cells have moved to the north to take part in the offensive line should they have to his forces to take control of the capital tripoli. our loss also to come here on the news hour including the morning what the u.s. president has to say about north korea firing rockets from its east coast and how turkey's economy is expected to be hit by u.s. sanctions on iran. and a long wait for a winner in the n.b.a. playoffs go into overtime for the first time the middle sixty jillion haven't gotten this in. the u.s. president says he'll eventually get a denuclearization agreement with north korea despite more apparent weapons tests donald trump tweeted that kim jong un doesn't want to break the promise he's made to him and that a deal will happen weapons experts are analyzing several launches detected on saturday by south korea's defense ministry john hendren joins us live now from
12:07 am
washington d.c. john so what do these launches say about north korea's motivations and what do you make of trump's response that. well there and it's clearly a deliberate provocation by the north korea but whether it's an act of desperation or a show of force is a matter of interpretation kim jong il was embarrassed in hanoi when he met with president trump in february embarrassed that he walked away without the sanctions relief that he had sought so that's when he walked out of that meeting and this is a signal back to the u.s. that his patience is not unlimited and it's a threat essentially to donald trump that he could unravel what trump views as his signature accomplishment on the korean peninsula and that is a moratorium on i.c.b.m. and nuclear testing these were short range missiles not i.c.b.m.'s would they were according to south korean and american military officials capable of reaching south korean and u.s.
12:08 am
bases in the region this suggests that north korea is increasingly pessimistic about those talks with the u.s. but president trumps response suggest that he is persistently optimistic i'll read a little more that tweet that you mentioned just a moment ago he said to anything in this very interesting world is possible but i believe that kim jong un fully realizes the great economic potential of north korea and will do nothing to interfere or end it he knows that i am with him and does not want to break his promise to me deal will happen trump says and that has to be enormously frustrating for kim jong who wants not optimism but action from the american president all right john so where does this go from here then what happens next. well more nuclear brinksmanship i'm afraid is likely to be what comes next the south korean president moves in says there is serious concern that kim jong il is in violation of the spirit of an agreement the north and south korea came to in september to halt hostile activities that kim is also speaking here to
12:09 am
a domestic audience he hasn't come away with the sanctions relief that he wants and this may be an effort to show his own people that he is still a strong leader while he's awaiting getting what he wants here now in speaking to president putin of russia in light of awestruck last week he said the americans were acting in bad faith and he plans to give them until the end of the year to offer a better deal that he knows that trump knows that that is his view because trump has spoken to putin if trump does nothing south korea could go ahead and resume tests in the message to trump here is that debate door to diplomacy will not remain open forever aaron jump thank you. now iran's president has called on his country to resist and unite against the u.s. after washington tighten restrictions on terror on's nuclear program the u.s. did not renew two key sanctions way as they were in place to allow some countries
12:10 am
to do business with iran well iran will now be in violation of the curbs if it continues to ship surplus heavy water made in the nuclear process to oman the u.s. has also made it harder for iran to dispose of any enriched uranium on its renewed some sanctions waivers that allow russia china the u.k. and france to work with iran on civilian nuclear projects but president hassan rouhani says the u.s. is trying to sow division among iranians. as the united states is violating international laws and pressuring companies to prevent them cooperating with iran and seeking to weaken our currency and the independence of our country there are huge conspiracies against our country and the american administration is waging a political and psychological war against us a decision to change the regime in iran washington aims to spread division in the country and the iranians must unite to face this war. where is the director of the gulf studies center at qatar university he says the u.s. is still fixated with iran's oil industry. american administration and the trump
12:11 am
they wanted to basically blocked iran exporting even one millimeter of its plans. so that is the core of the business and the other way it is there's not actually affect the whole concept the united states now want to make sure the iran cannot import any bottle from second of me and that basically will lead that iran will lose the main source of revenue for its own actually budget which means more economy problems more pressure on the regime which basically put the regime in the corner that is the main thing that what is all of those waivers they speak about i think the tried to show that they are actually taken into consideration the interest of other countries especially u.k. germany other countries basically none of the eight countries now they are saying we are actually committing ourselves with what the trump wants so they are keeping silent now because. we will wait
12:12 am
a few weeks before the impact of this. decision on their economy so none of those countries now is actually saying that you know we are against this however it seems that all of these countries are waiting who will be ringing the bell first and saying actually no our economy would be a real trouble if we actually accept this kind of pressure from the united states on the oil sector of iran. turkey's economy is expected to continue to slump as the u.s. imposes further sanctions on iran's oil industry so it is a major iranian customer that is having to look elsewhere for its energy supplies so when costello reports now from istanbul. iran is the second largest oil supplier to turkey after russia turkey has energy rich neighbors but nor reserves of its own so is dependent on oil and gas imports that leaves the turkish call me one or both to rises in energy prices the value of the turkish lira has fallen at least forty
12:13 am
percent in the past year and could fall further because of concerns about all supply to keep the troubled economy running. human you have many troubles just like the israeli lobby before the twenty twenty a lick should sound like he gave golan heights and jerusalem told him otherwise it has nothing to do with national security around complies with the nuclear deal but they want to contain iran for israel safety if turkey can't buy oil from iran sourcing alternative supplies from the united arab emirates or saudi arabia is difficult the turkish government is a leading saudi quit it following the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi in the kingdom sconce late in a stumble last year and relations with the u.a.e. are strained since turkish police arrested two a rabs who confessed to be spying for their murat is as a stopgap the turkish government is negotiating with iraq to buy oil only to kick only to wild turkey is trying to make itself understood by its western friends who
12:14 am
are protecting its national interest but to put an end to its independence it should focus on renewable energy in the long term turkey try to torpedo their reimposition of u.s. sanctions through a gold for all a strategy with iran basically using clear and golden payments to buy a turkey's state bank hot bank another turkish initiative was a crisis while they are between iran and russia last year and that's bypassing the u.s. financial system but it fails to stall turkey's all supply problem turkey's relations with the us are strange two of the major problems are u.s. support for the kurdish fighters in syria would turkey calls terrorists and the us stopping deliveries of f. the device that's what plays because turkey refuses to cancel a deal to buy air rushing the missile defense system and with the domestic issues such as weak currency and troubled economy it seems difficult for the turkish government to stand against u.s. sanctions on neighboring iran see now because all of al-jazeera

the beginning of the end of the horse racing industry in california no one has determined exactly what caused the fatal injuries but animal rights advocates point to overmedication of horses including the use of a powerful anti bleeding drug called lasix those drugs are highly restricted for resources in the rest of the world they're used to mask the injuries and so that's what you see with these horses breaking down on the tracks is that they match them for pain and a inflammatory somewhat not and they still race the los angeles county prosecutor has launched an investigation into the deaths well the controversy over resource deaths wages here in california some members of congress in washington d.c. want to see stricter rules imposed nationwide legislation to clean up the sport has bipartisan support in congress it would ban same day in the six so we would be in

compliance with the standards of the rest of the world it would. have a federal course racing board that would look at the other drugs that are administered and to make a determination as to whether there should be restrictions on those as well california animal welfare activists want to put the issue of the future of horse racing to the voters in a ballot measure we did some polling and what the polling shows is two thirds of californians either want it shut down a ban or raise the standards horse racing is a multibillion dollar sport but the animals too often pay the ultimate price robert oulds al-jazeera los angeles. mexico's canelo alvarez will take on american kids in a title fight in las vegas later on saturday the way in nearly became rule as

12:50 am
a palestinian territory including gaza city the han eunice and beit hanoun who are a force that joins us live now from west jerusalem married so we understand more rockets have been fired just bring us up to date with the latest situation on the ground eric. as i will yes our colleagues inside gaza are telling us that the strikes are continuing even as we speak and the most recent news from the gaza health ministry is as you mentioned in that introduction the death of a one year old baby the health ministry in gaza saying that the baby was killed in an israeli drone strike on the east of gaza city and that three other members of the same family were also injured so that is another casualty and the first civilian president civilian casualty that we've heard about so far in these israeli airstrikes on gaza there was a confirmation that a member of hamas is fighting faction of the brigades was killed in an
12:51 am
early israeli airstrike earlier today on the israeli side of the fence there have been as you say scores of rockets being fired outside or out from gaza and several of the making it through the iron dome anti-missile system and falling into residential areas around the gaza strip one israeli woman was reported seriously injured in a rocket which fell in carry out go and an israeli man injured by a rocket which struck ashkelon the city north of the gaza strip so this is another major military escalation we have been here several times already in recent months but we are in the midst of another one and palestinian islamic jihad one of the fighting factions within gaza says that it stands ready to extend the range of its rocket fire to the far north of israel to haifa to ben-gurion airport near tel
12:52 am
aviv and also to the un acknowledged nuclear reactor in dimona in southern israel and how it is ready prime minister benjamin netanyahu has been meeting his security advisers in tel aviv can expect anything from that meeting. well certainly no official announcement coming out from that meeting so far the only messaging we've been getting so far has been coming from the israeli military the the air force and the army but it does seem that israel is in in mind for a fairly major response to what's been going on there have been strikes going on throughout the day quite often israel would wait until night time to carry out raids such as this but given that this started quite early this morning following an israeli drone strike on a vehicle which local media reported was carrying a palestinian islamic jihad senior commander injuring three people inside that
12:53 am
vehicle that's when this major rocket barrage began and fairly soon after the israeli strikes followed this is a sensitive period for the israeli government which has yet to be formed really after the israeli election the coalition talks are ongoing ahead both of the israeli independence day which comes next week the marking of that and also the year of asians on contest in tel aviv on may the eighteenth there is a fair bit of analysis suggesting that israel does not want a full escalation towards a full conflict at such a sensitive time and perhaps that is why hamas and islamic jihad are trying to pressure israel after the failure really in their eyes of israel to make good on commitments made after the last escalation in april commitments which were reported such as allowing forty million dollars qatari money to come in to gaza every month as opposed to fifteen making various easing of the siege around gaza the only thing
12:54 am
that they saw from that so far was extending the fishing zone and that has been reduced right back to zero again along with the crossings being shut in the midst of this current escalation or to have a force in the west coast i'm sorry thank you. venezuela's opposition leader has made another bid for the support of the country's military in his attempt to take over as president one soldiers to break ranks with president maduro military commanders have remained loyal to my dear oh so far or tories are both joins us now from caracas to reason so first of all just bring us up to date with what's happening today. well we're hearing now. where people have gathered in order to respond to why those calls to go to the headquarters of the military of the police and other security forces in this country and try to convince the members of the military to carry out what they say is join their fight against what is one way the refers to as
12:55 am
a dictatorship they've been that we see not lots of people on the street today but most of them were carrying the flights that the one i have here which basically is what people have been distributing to members of the military which is talking about the amnesty law that one way though has been speaking about for the past few months where it gives some guarantees to those members of the military or security forces in general that joining in the fight the past few days have been very very tense in venezuela today seems to be calmer but we saw a very strong deployment of security forces scattered all around the capital here people in a way in a way a message from security forces to those who were hoping to go over there and warning them not to try to get close to those of many fairy installations on the other hand we also saw a president who are carrying out and joining the military exercises carrying out by troops he's been basically talking there about the importance of loyalty what he
12:56 am
said is that that a few bunch of traitors that joined one way though cannot change the prestigious of the organization until the winds that the most of the armed forces continue to remain loyal to nicolas maduro. what he had seen until now are small groups of members of the military of the police that have either left the country towards colombia brazil we saw also what happened on tuesday that around seventy members of security forces armed forces. guard also joined a long while you know in an attempt to take over a military base here in qatar but there's a very very small group so we also know that thousands have been detained or imprisoned by the government of nicole and i don't know the cuban intelligence is aiding the government of the tool in a way to try to find traitors within their ranks but it's also not only the
12:57 am
persecution and control of carried out by the administration but also some type of loyalty that prevails we've been in the military that loyalty can be traced back to the times of although chavez when he created the body very and national guard the military holds a very very important role in what they call a civic military alliance they control the economy of the military among other groups but what this people are saying is that the have the middle ranks and the lawyer ranks are suffering from the enormous economic crisis that most of us who are suffering today with shortages of medicines and food among other things go as are the people that this people are hoping will listen to the message that they've been trying to send oratory is a bow their in ca talk us through the thank you no weapons experts are trying to confirm the latest suspected rocket launches from north korea u.s. president donald trump has tweeted saying he's confident the north korean leader one break his promise of finding a solution to denuclearization south korea's defense ministry says it detected
12:58 am
several launches from the east coast of the korean peninsula the ministry says they weren't ballistic missiles from a bride is the latest from the capital so. this is turning out to be potentially one of the most provocative military gestures by north korea in more than a year and certainly not in keeping with the spirit of current moves at reconciliation between north korea and the u.s. and north korea and south korea in the south korean government has said as much there has been a top level meeting of the security and military officials which they've issued a statement saying that this test was inconsistent with the military agreement between north korea and south korea at the summit in pyongyang last september and calling on the north koreans to make every effort to actively participate and restart dialogue towards denuclearization so this very much seems to be placing at least some of the blame for the current stalemate on north korea's position the
12:59 am
started a flurry of diplomatic activity. the foreign minister of south korea has been in conversation with mike pompei o of the united states and also the japanese foreign minister trying to coordinate a response on the watchword seems to be one of caution saying that they will respond but prudently everybody conscious and being wary not to escalate tensions any further john hendren is following developments in washington d.c. . the launch of a series of projectiles from north korea marked a major provocation but whether that is a show of force or a show of desperation remains a matter of interpretation the north korean leader kim jong un walked away from a meeting with president trump in hanoi in february frustrated frustrated because he did not get the sanctions relief that he wanted now he has launched the most major provocation since november of two thousand and seventeen when north korea
1:00 am
launched a series of intercontinental ballistic missiles the missiles that were launched recently were short range projectiles capable of reaching south korea or american bases in that region it suggests that north korea is pessimistic about its negotiations with the u.s. but in a tweet president trump appeared persistently optimistic and he said anything in this very interesting world is possible but i believe that kim jong un fully realizes the great economic potential of north korea and will do nothing to enter fear or to end it he also knows that i am with him and does not want to break his promise to me deal will happen this has to be enormously frustrating to the north korean leader who wants to hear action not optimism from the american president. this is because some breaking news now out of algeria we're getting reports that the youngest brother of the former president abilities beautiful has been arrested to.
