isn't different kinds of sensitivity there was a space for the. sixty seven words that spelled promise one people but ended up with disaster for another. the lead to the establishment of a jewish homeland at the expense of the palestinians one hundred years on al-jazeera world tells the story of the british declaration that changed the middle east for seeds of discord at this time. syrian and iraqi forces push into the last strongholds.

long siege on the city and its residents. the engineering units are now combing the city removing the explosive canisters and booby traps planted by the terrorist operatives and buildings and squares this is carries a significant student strategic location of the city as the crossway connecting the eastern region to both the northern and central regions and the gateway between the syrian desert and iraq the city also has an economic importance as it is a vast agricultural area and rich in oil and gas the liberation of bear is or comes as the last phase of exterminating eisel in syria. tracking those developments from gaza on tap on the turkey syria border. a wave of strikes by russian warplanes and the constant shelling by syrian army managed to break the defense lines of icily into neighborhoods on her way and. the syrian army has managed to get into those areas he says he's now trying to clean them from potential. booby trapped buildings
or suicide bombers or snipers now this is why significant for the syrian army because he can now can sort of date his grip on the some parts of syria but there are areas where he faces challenges particularly the part of their lives or the oil fields which are still under the control of the. and sunni tribesmen affiliated with the opposition and i will come out on the border with iraq which is the last remaining stronghold for myself in syria and in neighboring iraq the army and shia militia fighters have captured the last international border under control they've entered the town of our province stephanie decker has more on the latest battleground and iraq. the commander of the armed forces that is the prime minister his office has issued a statement congratulating his troops of taking over at the border crossing with syria this was the last border crossing that i say still hold you still fighting
going on around. in that area but if they see that border has now been taken that is significant hugely significant because of the propaganda push that i saw displayed when it goes down those borders in two thousand and fourteen established establishing their so-called state their so-called caliph it so certainly their territorial. is waning this is the last area in iraq that they hold but there are still huge challenges ahead thousands and thousands hundreds of thousands of people remain displaced from all these areas where fighting has pretty much flattened those areas or reconstruction is going to be a real issue a real challenge and also reconciliation there's a lot of suspicions and feelings of revenge here between sex between ethnicity so certainly we can talk about perhaps the fact that i saw territorial hold is going there pretty much at the end of it but there are huge challenges ahead here the lawyer for the cattle on president says his client will appeal any belgian approval of extradition to spain spanish judges deciding whether to issue an international
arrest warrant for carlos pushed him on he issued a summons to a spanish court on thursday because he is in belgium seeking what he says is freedom and safety and has sacked a cabinet he and a sack cabinet being investigated for sedition following last month's declaration of independence now at a push for months former cabinet members have been jailed and mothers being detained and madrid they attended thursday's high court hearing that missed he says their detention is an attack on democracy. you can look at the spanish government decision to imprison the cabinet members of the legitimate government of catalonia is a very grave mistake it is a great attack on democracy imprisoning political leaders who have ample citizen support is an act that violates the basic principles of democracy david chaytor is following developments in brussels. we spoke to the federal prosecutor's office here in brussels about the actual details of european arrest warrant and they are
the ones that will receive it by email or by fax when it is eventually served there will then have twenty four hours to look at the whole details to make sure the paperwork is correct then they have under the terms of the european arrest warrant up to fifteen days to detain both the deposed. president and for his cabinet ministers who are here with him when he is picked up if they say that they are against the warrant and they will appeal against the warrant then there's another fifteen day period while they prepare the case now they can appeal against it on several grounds one of the most important ones is will they get a fair trial or are their human rights being abused these are perhaps very significant areas where they can combat this this arrest warrant from madrid now if that happens the belgian authorities and it's a case of the judicial authorities here in belgium have up to sixty days to put the
arrest warrant into effect and to send the deposed president and his ministers back to madrid but they are under the under the guidance of a very experienced extradition lawyer an asylum lawyer will fall back on to his dealt with previous cases here in brussels back in two thousand and ten he handled the request by one of the wanted at or past separatist leaders and he did that successfully so we can expect this process in all to take something like sixty days but there's one thing to be an important to actually add to this and that's the fact that a. priest a man has actually told his lawyer that he will cooperate with the belgian authorities so is an asylum case going to be brought are they going to appeal again the sense is it does. so they will do that but the reminder of course i want to be careful and president did say he said the president doesn't consider he's being
deposed and he considers the actions by madrid what he called a terrorist act against democracy and a spokesman for the deposed president's party attacked the decision to detain several of the ousted ministers but says a high voter turnout enraged all elections called for december will send a message to the central government. political prisoners and catalonia spain and europe they have imprisoned a government that was democratically elected at the ballot boxes and this cannot go unnoticed as a society as a country and also as a political project where an emotional shock due to this traumatic situation there is a very clear intention from the central government to ryse the cash line institutions by bringing one five five into force we believe it's time for political representatives and parties to have a clear vision a determined vision to define what we have and what we have done mainly to defend
the catalan institutions and put forward in a fair manner when we go to the ballot boxes on the twenty first of december. america's top diplomat will visit me in march to discuss the revenger crisis such as state rex tillerson is expected to meet with leaders on nov fifteenth pressure is mounting on the white house to impose measures against me on mars government and the us senate a bipartisan group has introduced a bill which would restrict military cooperation until violence stops the chief says it's time for the united nations security council to find a solution to the right hander crisis. to al-jazeera as james face about his recent visit to refugee camps and bangladesh. i felt as i felt more than twenty years ago in those camps in eastern congo is the time when rwandans were coming by the hundreds of thousands the context is different but the could dish and the physical
conditions of this huge out floor in a very poor area without proper shelter proper sites without enough water without enough sanitation reminded me of those tragic moments in the ninety's when we had to deal with those emergencies. we've had a visit now by and son suchi to iraq and state the first time since this crisis she's been there she's seen things for herself what does she now need to do the refugees the orange refugees have a right to return to their to their to their home seemed rakhine state but to do that you have to recreate the conditions for them to feel safe to go back and that means. addressing finally the issue of citizenship which is really the fundamental crux of the matter here you made strong comments on this do you believe that the security council has been strong enough or would you like them to take further action i think the security council to use their jargon remains
seized of the matter and that is already something i don't think they have found as often happens yet the unity necessary to propose and to put forward the the solution you know if you think of syria all the years which we have waited for the security council to five who have unity on on on resolutions on syria these are this is the difficulty this is why my message to the council today is lack of international cooperation which can happen here at the council favors the refugee flows or rather prevents solutions to refugee flows from being established and therefore these refugee flows to and so it's time for them to step up the council time to step up and to agree i would say this
is the key word. the un wants australia to restore food water and health services to six hundred refugees who are refusing to leave its decommissioned prison camp on the guineas manis island services ended when the can closed on tuesday but the refugees there say they're too scared to move out into the community because of previous attacks from hostile locals international bodies described the situation on the island as an unfolding humanitarian emergency australia one's off shore prison camps to house refugees who try to reach the country by boat. so ahead on al jazeera if you thought you had one of those jobs where the robots weren't going to take it think again now people in south sudan continue to uncover deadly remnants of past wars.

or watching al-jazeera let's recap the top stories this hour i sold the group is dramatic rise captured headlines in two thousand and fourteen as staring at defeat and its final strongholds and iraq and syria syrian state television says the army and its allied forces have pushed out of the eastern city of daraa zor. the lawyer for the deposed catalog president says his client will appeal any belgian approval of extradition to spain a spanish judge is deciding whether to issue an international arrest warrant for carlos pushed a law he missed a summons to appear before a spanish court on thursday. america's top diplomat will visit me in march of discuss the rancher crisis later this month pressure is mounting on the white house
to impose measures against me and mars government for its crackdown on the henge of minorities. for the first time since the start of the syrian war six years ago now levanon has appointed an ambassador to damascus the appointment by prime minister saad hariri has been sharply criticized by his cabinet which says it legitimizes the regime and reports. this is lebanon's new embassador to syria the first since the start of the war arriving in damascus saad zakia comes from the ministry of foreign affairs and was appointed by prime minister saad hariri earlier this week but it's lebanese president michel own who is closely linked to the iranian backed hezbollah movement one of us its closest allies who is said to have pushed for the upgrade in diplomatic ties but not everyone is happy about the decision we believe that as long as city is seen in the arab league is empty my decision of the out of state. embassy
in damascus should be empty off and i'm back but i think that presenting your credentials to wash out a lesson is giving credit to somebody who can tough a million syrian lebanese syrian diplomacy has long been complex both nations gained independence from france in the one nine hundred forty s. but it wasn't until two thousand and nine that full diplomatic ties were established embassies were opened and a basters were exchanged that's a part because syria first didn't recognize its smaller neighbor and then in the big one nine hundred seventy s. at the start of what would become lebanon spiff dene year long civil war damascus sent in its army to occupied large sections of lebanese territory but after more than three decades of occupation syria's hold quickly unraveled in two thousand and five and prime minister rafik hariri was killed in a car bombing and assassination some accuse the syrian government of orchestrating
. if they want to improve relations they could not do it without the step so we have to wait and see is this ambassador going to be like the previous one you know like. just a. formality or he's going to be enacted on the bus there is going to arrange meetings and so on my open is not going to arrange meetings and not yet. the decision to upgrade diplomatic ties with syria also has syrian refugees concerned they fear it could be to an agreement which could see more than one million syrian refugees sheltering in lebanon sent back to a country still at war. since the start of the syrian war lebanon has maintained a policy of what it describes as nonintervention but regional rivalries namely between saudi arabia and iran have led to political polarization here which is why
the decision to upgrade diplomatic ties with damascus has sparked concerns it could lead to a major political crisis in al-jazeera beirut prosecutors of international criminal court want to open an investigation into allegations of war crimes and afghanistan and will date back to cases since may two thousand and three i also want to look at cases where or crimes may have been committed on territories that are part of the rome statute that's the international treaty which led to the foundation and the hague based i.c.c. the u.s. led war in afghanistan began in two thousand and one and response to the september eleventh attacks it was supported by a proc or listen of enter national forces land mines and unexploded bombs are still being discovered in residential and farming areas of south sudan the weapons are largely from south sudan's war with sudan which ended in two thousand and five but the country now in its own civil war there are more threats even more again reports
from the capital juba. all his been hoping to do was dig the soil for farming to sustain himself instead marching ago says he found something else not far from his house and he was in a million and. i started forming this year and while i was digging i fell in the land mine are reported to the chief of the village and they took it without incident i continue with digging and again filling another learn more in the land mines are just some of the more than thirty one thousand anti-personnel mines discovered in south sudan since two thousand and five they were planted during the country's twenty one year civil war when it was still part of sudan a conflict that has left many areas with land mines and other unexploded ordinances more than one thousand three hundred deaths have been recorded as a result and more than three thousand five hundred people have been injured wolf in a rope is one of them. i lost my arm and leg in a land mine accident my colleague died in the same incident now i tell people that
land mines are deadly and that if they find one they should stay away from it. but many areas still haven't been checked for landmines and other bombs it's not uncommon to find land mines in areas where people are living over the past few years and the population's been on the move to escape hunger and violence to include areas increasing the risk of stepping on landmines or unexploded devices but these devices from the previous civil war are not the only threats facing people here. for the past four years south sudan has been going through a war that is bound to leave one of a dangerous legacy the legacy of this for his is going to be a prayer for a sheen of unexploded ordnance that is dangerous. to have a comes across and handles it and it spread across a wide area and it will take time to clear. he is rather than weeks or months. martin said he was lucky that he found the land mine before it exploded but says he
hopes will find the next mine also has his luck and survives he will morgan al-jazeera juba but his own president nicolas maduro says he plans to renegotiate all future foreign debt payments with banks and investors etc sponsor financial sanctions imposed by the trumpet ministration the country has sunk into a deep recession following the collapse and oil prices antonio more as a latin america analyst he says venezuela defaulting on its debts is inevitable. it hasn't paid those eight hundred million dollars that have already come due and tonight is a principle payment or at least the it is a lot of oil company owes a personal payment of one point one billion dollars and so technically that is all be in default by midnight tonight all the material said that the pay that was going to be made tomorrow it is so how to put it simply it's it's this is the day of reckoning that everyone knew was going to come but as well it simply does not have enough money to pay its foreign debt and this has very little to do with the
american sanctions that's what mcgrew would want people to think the reality is that under tavis is previous esther and then withdrew they had the venezuelan government has indebted itself. astonishingly and most of that money has been robbed by the government itself there are enormous public works projects that were financed into the billions of dollars in venezuela that went nowhere that money went into the pockets of the government so it is a government that has indebted itself terribly and would have been in bad shape anyway and then had the oil prices fall which made things even worse so this is a disaster that was long in coming. yes president donald trump's former campaign chair has appeared in court accused of conspiracy against the united states and money laundering all metaphor it says that criminal cases brought by special counsel robert muller is embellish and of course lawyers argue he is a successful political consultant involved in international financial transactions as part of his work the judge's order to him to remain under house arrest all or as

retailers will shut three thousand five hundred stores in the u.s. this year that equals tens of thousands of lost jobs for sales people and support staff who is most at risk experts say african-americans hispanics female workers of all races and people without a college education will lose jobs to automation at the highest rates and that's going to really. change the face of our society certain cities will be hit the hardest but sixty one percent of the jobs in las vegas could be automated in coming twenty years and so a lot of the jobs are office administrative support they're in sales their food preparation and so within those industries we see a lot of workers you know doing tasks that could be taken over by robots in the coming years it seems that american workers and policymakers are not ready for the massive economic and social disruption this new wave of automation could bring as
a society i don't see us prepared our politicians are remarkably silent about this issue totally of course you know we had seen we have seen plenty of technological waves but we claim this time it's different it's really different no one knows how this seemingly unstoppable wave of automation will play out but in communities where mining and manufacturing jobs were replaced by robots people are suffering from widespread poverty depression drug abuse and alcoholism those robot bartenders are going to be busy rob reynolds al jazeera los angeles. that's in sixty years since a sylvia dog called like became the first animal to orbit earth her historic flight was one of the defining moments of the space race and the reports. on the morning of november third one nine hundred fifty seven this quiet unassuming street dog
