12:04 pm
the israeli military is still in the house secondly that the village will be sealed off and his whole extended family will have their work permits removed from them and the other thing that benjamin netanyahu is saying is that this is the result of systematic incitement by the palestinian authority he says he expects a full condemnation from the palestinian president this is all happening at the time of another visit by the u.s. envoy to the region jason green blatt he's here talking to both sides trying to see if this so far stalled us peace effort can be revived the united states is calling on the palestinians to wait three or four more months. three more three more months from now before they come up with their own proposal but obviously these sorts of issues will further complicate that process all right harry many thanks al jazeera as harry's for very force at their reporting live from the occupied west bank iraq
12:05 pm
is refusing to hold talks with the kurdish regional government about the results of monday's controversial independence vote the iraqi prime minister has called the referendum unconstitutional. hundreds of kurds celebrated the end of voting the polls expected to produce a comfortable win for the pro secession campaign but the result is nonbinding let's take you live now to the capital of iraq's kurdish region of below zero. is there after yesterday's historic and some might say defiant votes in the eyes of all the criticism what's the mood there today. sense of pride on many levels that the vote actually went ahead and. went ahead peacefully there were concerns that there might be violence erupting in the mainly in the disputed territories and specifically in this city. but by and large it
12:06 pm
was a very peaceful day as a certainty is that satisfaction sense of achievement among many kurds also because there was a lot of political bickering before the vote between the various kurdish political factions and just a day before devoted even those who are against the referendum i dis time when i came out and said to their supporters everyone is allowed to go and vote choose what you want to choose so there was a little show of unity really at the last minute so all of that has satisfied the public opinion here but today the kurdish region is exactly the same as it was the day before the referendum the economical problems are still there the civil servants have been paid less than the salary ever since the war started and the problems of baghdad started so those are the realities that kurds back to
12:07 pm
and then there's also an apprehension and i desire on what will happen next everyone here taking seriously and monitoring closely everything the statement coming out of baghdad but also from the neighboring countries mainly iran and turkey ok so it was a non-binding vote all the neighbors were against it in and the u.s. to iraq says it's not going to negotiate about anything with the regional government there what was the point of it. when i think at this point they wait and see approach of the moment come. from the kurdish authorities yes iraq says that it won't negotiate anytime soon and i think this is something they expected because really one of the biggest bone of contention in the last days leading to the referendum was that iraq wanted to the shade first the kurds wanted to vote first but there is still cooperation going on and. specifically on the
12:08 pm
military and we spoke to the to the spokesman of the peshmerga the kurdish forces here in erbil and he said that that was continuing i did two sides working together with india on going offensive on how we just it is the last stronghold of eiseley here in the country and the u.s. envoy to the coalition against isis brett mcgurk had made sure that you do sides reach an agreement before the referendum so there is still a lot of dealings between the two sides now publicly both sides were very defiant both sides made their point clear and for them to actually sit at the table and negotiate this is session steps that will take a long time but i mean mustard bizarrely is very clear he said that time for the failed partnership in iraq is over meaning that there is no way out of this look at
12:09 pm
it in a way or in another you take a road of negotiations or not in the end there will be secession and after that they will be a declaration of independence how long that will take is something nobody knows how many thanks of zeros hoda abdel-hamid in abele. the u.s. russia and china have all weighed in after comments made by the north korean foreign minister on monday we on the whole accuse the president donald trump of having declared war on pyongyang russia says that using sanctions against north korea is a strategy that's almost exhausted and china for its part says they'll be no winners in any war on the korean peninsula and the u.s. dismissed the accusations from north korea's foreign minister as absurd but defense secretary james mattis has said that america wants to solve this crisis diplomatically kathy novak reports now from seoul. as he left his hotel heading out of new york north korea's foreign minister read young ho addressed reporters. last
12:10 pm
weekend trump claimed that at leadership wouldn't be around much longer and ends at last he declared a war no country or do you guys the more that given the fact this comes from someone who is currently holding the seat of the united states presidency this is clearly a declaration of war his latest comments go further than his address to the u.n. general assembly just two days earlier and he was clearly responding to president trump's tweet after that speech in which he referred to little rocket men and warned they may not be around much longer but the white house dismissed his suggestion it was a declaration of war. we've not declared war on north korea and frankly the suggestion of that is absurd real also referred to a u.s. show of force which took place just before he spoke on saturday u.s. fighter jets and b. one bombers flying close to north korea's eastern coast but still over international waters can be. since the u.s.
12:11 pm
declared war in our country we will have every right to make ken a measures including the right to shoot down the united states strategic even when they're not yet inside the airspace of our country right it's never appropriate for a country to shoot down another country's aircraft when it's over international waters our goal is still the same we continue to seek the peaceful the nuclearization of the korean peninsula in a briefing to south korea's parliamentary intelligence committee the national intelligence service said north korea did not take any countermeasures in response to that flight of u.s. bombers but has since moved planes and beefed up the fences along the east coast it said the u.s. military disclosed the flight path because the north koreans apparently didn't detect the aircraft and what is the use of a show of force if the target doesn't realize it's happening. south korea is coding a strong emphasis on a peaceful solution there cannot be another war on the korean peninsula. the consequences would be devastating not just for the korean peninsula but for
12:12 pm
northeast asia and indeed the whole international community south korean intelligence reports that soldiers on the opposite side of the border have been ordered to report to higher commands before taking any action suggesting that despite its tough talk north korea would also prefer to avoid confrontation kathy novak al jazeera seoul we're going to weather update thanks to you and i was here at then they've escaped violence in. iraq children are now putting their experiences into pictures. hell i was been writing it seems for months in thailand more recently it's been raining further south in thailand but if you take a discrete snapshot from space on this and most of the clouds over the water tween
12:13 pm
the philippines and vietnam some of thailand is covered in clouds stretches down toward singapore and they are under sumatra of course coming to the wet season i'd expect the rain here and it's still there but it goes a long way north and northern thailand is also getting its face share of wet weather. borneo and now more recently jobber including of course jakarta the scene you might expect this time of the year in australia of course we went to spring now it's turning quite warm in the east. cloud here the cloud which reveals rain still not far away from person is going to be west australia more where more rain falls but is pushed ahead of it a line a streak of green here which is actually a little frontal system maybe not that obvious. to the east we're in the low twenty's now this is relatively high for this time of the year but that streak is just revealed itself to be something of a cult from yes turned around behind it and adelaide dropped down to sixteen but
12:14 pm
ahead of it that could end up being record warmth considering the time of year. for the nomadic jock outright survival is about reaching their destination if we don't hurry never be able to. follow the mongolian herdsmen on a treacherous migration. dangerous the ice is as they strive to preserve their traditional way of life living here sometimes luser cattle there with cold or because of the storm risking you don't mongolia at this time on al-jazeera.
12:15 pm
again let's take a moment to remind you of our top stories this hour on al-jazeera three members of the israeli security forces have been killed and one injured in a shooting at a jewish settlement in the occupied west bank the palestinian gunman was shot dead . hundreds of kurds have celebrated the end of a controversial independence vote in iraq the pro secession campaign is expected to win comfortably. russia china and the u.s. appear to be reacting to word that north korea is ramping up its defenses russia says the u.s. needs a new approach to the crisis china says they can be no winners in such a conflict and u.s. defense secretary james mattis says america wants a diplomatic solution. the first refugees to be resettled under a controversial agreement between australia and the us of flowed out of papua new guinea on their way to the united states the group of more than twenty men has been
12:16 pm
in a stray and run prison camp on madison island the resettlement deal was organized when barack obama was president but it's been criticized by current u.s. president donald trump more refugees will be moved from a camp on nauru to the u.s. in coming days while the detention center on man asylum this you to close in a week but the immigration spokesman for the australian greens party says there's still uncertainty around what will happen to the remaining refugees that. there are still hundred men on menace all and and over four hundred men women and children on the road who really have no idea what is going to happen to them in the future and often to menace all and toss all of spark into a lot of a struggle as political prisoners are there and that i do not hope for the future because they've had so many times in the past and had that hope completely destroyed and once you've done that a few times it becomes much more difficult. to engage in hype for the future so the
12:17 pm
question for the australian government entities a question for the australian government not the popular new guinea government not that narrow in government but the astroland government is what is the future for these people because that cannot simply be left to weiss to y. and rot on man a saw and row which appears apart from the us steel to be the only future that i can expect back down to one of our top stories russia china and the us reacting to word that north korea is ramping up its defenses let's go live now to moscow al-jazeera story chalons is following developments from there rory russia's foreign minister has been speaking about this what's he said. well the foreign ministry i think someone who works for the what is the director of the of the foreign ministries department for nonproliferation and arms control has been giving a press conference in moscow this afternoon and he is basically saying that russia
12:18 pm
seems to be at the moment working behind the scenes to try to bring the escalation of tensions. around the north korean country in the peninsula to some sort of political resolution trying to deescalate the situation basically that is a new development as far as i'm able to tell the russians have been saying for quite some time that they're not very happy about to new asli. hitting north korea with more and more sanctions and they basically think that the americans are using the stick too much and some point they're going to have to start using the carrots as well now the russians basically saying you've got to talk bert's we don't know at the moment what they are suggesting what they might have to offer the north koreans dmitri trenin who is the head
12:19 pm
of the canid center here in moscow is writing in the new york times a week ago and he seemed to have some kind of thinking about what the russians might be offering the russians have basically you have to have fairly good economic ties with north korea and so perhaps russia moscow is offering north korea or beginning at the discussions at least in some kind of economic package that could include gas pipelines and rail links something that would actually go towards boosting the north korean economy rather than penalising it where the russians are very anti at the moment ok very many thanks indeed for a chance there live in moscow. a quarter of a million muslim children have fled me and since the latest outbreak of violence began a month ago many more crossed the border into bangladesh daily many of them alone many have nothing some refuse to speak about what they've seen instead they draw
