11:01 am
hello i'm without is there live from doha also coming up. i believe that president putin really feels and i feel strongly that he did not meddle in our election. president trump backs the cia who says russia meddled in the u.s. presidential election campaign last year. mass graves a suspected i saw victims are discovered in northern iraq. palestinian unity for the first time in ten years the yellow flags of fatah a waved in hamas controlled gaza to honor the former palestinian leader yasser arafat. a saudi state television has broadcast new pictures of lebanon's prime minister
11:02 am
saad hariri meeting king solomon at riyadh airport now this is just the third time that mr hariri has been seen since the other expectedly announced his resignation in the saudi capital eight days ago he's made no public remarks since then and there are suggestions that he's being held against his will saying a hoarder has more now from beirut. posters are springing up across the lebanese capital beirut expressing support to. the resign prime minister whose fate really is unknown uncertain times eleven on the country finding itself at a crossroads for the past year this country enjoyed relative stability in a very turbulent region but things have changed and lebanon finds itself in the middle of the saudi iranian rivalry playing out across the region it's men like him and i think for quite some time since two thousand and five i guess it's when he really thinks things are really assassination. and we have two polls like saudi
11:03 am
arabia and iran and those two polls have people on the ground iran has tons of those economics and in the middle of all this i think and live on a lot of special editions what they do best is that they they they lie and they say things. to make people and maybe scared and to put this like political pressure on everyone just to get what they want we are in a mainly sunni neighborhood. many people here feel that the current crisis is going to march and allies them even further this in the community has long complained of iranian dominance in lebanon and now they're blaming their own ally saudi arabia of robbing them of their leader. and. this we want to know the reason behind his detention lebanon can't handle this crisis thank goodness the detention of
11:04 am
a prime minister is unacceptable sort of the can the this is a loss for all of lebanon hariri is loved by everyone we're all upset by his detention no one will accept what is happening this is humiliation for lebanon we won't be quiet we will demand his release. for we can go live now to send a holiday correspondent who's in beirut in zain i can see runners behind you the beirut american taking place but this year taking on an added significance. well definitely a say yes a yearly sporting event that aims to bring people closer together the president of the country hoping that the people will demonstrate solidarity with the prime minister saddle how do the many in lebanon believe that the saddle heidi is detained he's under house arrest in saudi arabia we are getting reports that he may appear live on his local television channel either later tonight or in the coming
11:05 am
days we still have not confirmed that but if indeed he does make that appearance it will be the first time we hear from the prime minister since his sudden announcement that he resigned on saturday we've seen the prime minister since that announcement meeting the saudi king twice meeting rulers and abu dhabi but we haven't heard from him now whether or not hearing from him is going to end the speculation or the belief in lebanon on that side of how does freedom of movement is being curtailed by the saudi authorities it is hard to say but because specially since the president of the country and i have to point out that the president is his political rival believes that even if the speech because of the vagueness surrounding his circumstances nothing he says can be considered official not until he comes back to lebanon and i can tell you the posters in beirut today saying must return to their country and presumably then the new pictures that have recently been aired on saudi t.v. will do nothing to allay the fears surrounding the conditions in which. is
11:06 am
remaining in riyadh. well no they will not first of all we've been speaking to people and they say that what they've been telling us is that how do you the should return to the country we feel that something is wrong we. feel that in one way or the other he's not able to come back yes you know saudi arabia says that the reason why he hasn't returned is because of security concerns and security fears but people think otherwise we went to how to be strongholds so in the neighborhoods we have to remember the prime minister is a sunday muslim according to the power sharing agreement in this country and they really feel that to what has happened marginalize them even further because this is a community who feels that iran in one way or the other controls this country through its proxy hezbollah and hezbollah of course has allies in levanon so people feel that by taking subtle how do you see a way that this resignation is not going to help them gain where we gained their place in lebanon and does a nerve lebanon is such a
11:07 am
a deeply divided society isn't it what was quite remarkable in the early days of this crisis was the consensus was the unity that was being displayed by the various political factions is that holding is that political consensus still in place. well yes for now it is holding political differences are being put aside we have to remember this is not the first time that there is a political crisis in this country the camp the pro saudi camp has long demanded that hezbollah for example disarm that hezbollah stops imposing iran's agenda and levon on that hezbollah pulls its forces out of syria and that hezbollah shouldn't entangle itself in regional crises in fact we saw a year of relative stability before the sudden announcement of of how to his resignation announcement but things have now changed yes the political differences are there the political divide is still there but like i mentioned they're putting
11:08 am
this aside people are so worried because these are uncertain times they're worried what steps what further steps are going to be taken this is not the first time they have been efforts to curb hezbollah's influence in this country in the past there have been wars will pull economic pressure be brought to bear on lebanon and. in a country which economy is it's really struggling so people are worried but right now there's this unity that must return to the country for the sake of stability all right zain thank you very much and one hundred there live at the beirut marathon. the president trump a sort of clarify his remarks on vladimir putin and russian involvement in last year's u.s. presidential election he's also called on all nations to work together and that he just wants to get along with russia and north korea he was speaking in vietnam and he addressed questions on whether russia had meddled in last year's election he said it's set to u.s. intelligence assessments that mosco did indeed interfere but he also accepted the
11:09 am
russian president's belief that russia played no part. i believe very much in our intelligence agencies now at the same time. i want to be able because i think it's very important to get along with russia to get along with china to get along with vietnam to get along with lots of countries because we have a lot of things we have to sell i believe that president putin really feels and he feels strongly that he did not meddle in our election what he believes is what he believes what i believe is that we have to get to work where the president also rallied support over north korea saying responsible nations must act to stop its nuclear and missile threats he went on to emphasize the importance of all nations working together for the greater good. we have to get to work and i think everybody
11:10 am
understood this that heard the answer we have to get to work to solve syria to solve north korea to solve ukraine to solve terrorism it's now time to get back to healing a world that is shattered and broken those are very important things. now for the first time in a decade the people of gaza have marked the anniversary of the death of yasser arafat for the last ten years gaza is being run by hamas a faction which until recently was in opposition to faster which yasser arafat founded on last month's deal for faster and hamas to unite led many cows and said hope for an improvement in their living conditions and the thirteenth anniversary of yasser arafat's death became an occasion to celebrate their new found she unity portrait a g.m. reports. tens of thousands gathered in gaza city to honor yasser arafat for many here the late president and longtime leader remains a symbol of palestinian statehood. we love him and it's our duty to
11:11 am
commemorate his revolution. but this gathering is also a symbol of palestinian unity the first in ten years for fatah founder in hamas controlled gaza last month the two political factions signed an agreement to end their rivalry it will allow the fatah led government in the west bank to control gaza. hamas has ruled gaza since it one more parliamentary seats in two thousand and seven. the anniversary of arafat holds pain and hope pain of his death and losing him as he sacrificed himself for palestine and hope which hamas and all of the palestinians want hope of achieving unity and reconciliation and rearranging the internal palestinian house. yasser arafat led the fatah movement for nearly five decades until his death in two thousand and four from what was reported to be
11:12 am
a month long illness but now zero investigation in two thousand and twelve found out a fog was poisoned by radioactive talks and palestinians blame israel for his death an accusation israel has strongly denied but here in gaza they still want answers. i believe it was assassinated and i demand to investigate his death and find the criminals. we all came children and women young and old people from all over gaza to commemorate a symbol of the palestinian cause so. yes our fight is a symbol of free people all over the world i think all revolutionaries should commemorate this anniversary with the recent reconciliation of fatah and hamas the onus is now on the current leaders to deliver on the long held hope of a palestinian state culture durgin on the. now to syria where the province of
11:13 am
aleppo is again under heavy bombardment now the bombings apparently started this week and they have forced thousands of civilians to flee the area and set up makeshift camps in the countryside and the united nations has expressed concern over this continuous bombing by russian syrian government forces we'll go live to our correspondent saima binge of aid he's in on the turkish side of the border with syria and so many people will be surprised to know that. is still under way in this part of syria after the fall of. the reclaiming of aleppo a city many people would have thought this area was now safe. but it is aleppo is a is a big province in the city of it so on the outskirts of aleppo. there are pockets that people fled from aleppo city which are still under rebel control this particular area where this latest campaign by the syrian government is underway is
11:14 am
close to the aleppo it live border these are the two provinces and these areas were held by rebels and now syrian forces are pushing to words and it's worth noting that this is an area that is just on the outskirts of the deescalation zone as well so it is perfectly ok and legal for syrian government forces and their russian allies to bombard these areas and push the rebels back and this is what the contention of the syrian opposition has been that they have been saying that these deescalating the escalation zones rather have been helping to bring down civilian casualties but they're also an excuse for the assad government and its allies to consolidate their control and push rebels back to words these areas where they would if they fire back they would be in violation of the laws and it is very difficult for the people who have been displaced from place to place from aleppo city from other parts of provinces in these areas which have come under relentless bombardment in the last five years to try and set up shop here here is
11:15 am
a few of them who told us how it feels and what do they have now as they move from their homes. we don't have any shelter new tents no cover when we left we didn't take anything the syrian army went after us with airstrikes and now the children sleep while. there's no water no power no roads just dirt we move a lot for god's sake have some mercy we run with just the clothes that we wear now here in attention is far inland and you have again. the villages and towns in the southern countryside of aleppo faced a wave of civilians fleeing towards the east or one thousand seven hundred thirty four families from the south one thousand three hundred families from the northern countryside of hama after visiting the random camps in the area we evaluate the humanitarian situation as. a disaster people need tends to protect themselves in the freezing winter. and as you can see the desperation among the people who fled
11:16 am
from these areas and who are continuing to flee from the various the tents that you seen these pictures are not new. because international can't get there because it's an active battle front and hundreds of people have been living out in the open and it's worth noting this is the onset of winter and it's very cold at night in. countryside for these people so it's a struggle to survive and they don't know what's going to happen to them next. the fighting is far from over in syria thank you. so. sales. made entirely of flip flops and recycled. reporting on the turnaround of one of germany's most industrialized cities that led to it becoming this year's european green capital.
