5:02 pm
a noose of terror around our neck. we will act without hesitation to defend ourselves and we will act if necessary not just against iran's proxies that are attacking us but against iran itself what iran's foreign minister hit back saying that terror and wants to forge closer ties with its neighbors and that israel is the aggressor in the region from israel's invasion and subsequent aggressions under been on its eagle occupation of palestine and it's almost they'd be eagle incursions into syrian air space to attempt to create cartoonish images to blame others for his own strategic blunders or maybe to evade the domestic crisis that treaty there is hashem is at that conference in munich
5:03 pm
what are we to make of that this extraordinary scenes we saw at the conference today. an indication of what we might see in the near future in the region basically further escalation and the iranian foreign minister. was that if these harsh words against the israelis the saudis are describing them as clients of the analysis of america saying that basically what has happened in the region over the last three decades is a succession of mishaps missteps and blunders by the americas and. in the region blaming them for everything that has been happening here and what we've been hearing today with really extraordinary that way or another because when the israeli prime minister spoke we got a quick reaction from the lebanese defense minister saying that if the israelis decide to attack us then we are ready to respond and then window odds are you've
5:04 pm
made his remarks about saudi arabia the measure was there we were critical of iran blaming the iranians for working for over the last four decades to destabilize the region this is want. to say. we cannot afford to put up with the when the revolution penetrance of course the reason iran a sanction for terrorism is because it supports terrorism. we didn't sanction them the international community did the reason you promised to action for violating ballistic missiles accords is because it does and the recently are going to sanction. on human rights violations just because it does so there has to be a fundamental change in the iranian regime in order for iran to be treated like a normal country. where does this leave that we are most likely to see further regional interference in places like yemen and syria the
5:05 pm
potential for confrontation between the key players there is a growing of the united nations has expressed concern about this potential of the. united nations all voters serious to fundable stoller said a while ago that his biggest concern is that with the biggest players in the region interfering inside syria and cross syria it is worrisome calling for the international community to come together and encourage all the parties to try to negotiate a settlement but that does not look to be the case any time soon given what we've been hearing or exchanges over the last few hours here in munich ashleigh many thanks indeed better their live in munich will address creek is an assistant professor at the defense studies department at king's college london he says that israel is trying to drum up support against iran along with its allies. well what we see here is a clash over narratives that has been unfolding over the last couple of years particularly two u.s.
5:06 pm
allies here we have israel and saudi most of the most important argue the most important allies for the united states in the region are trying to build a narrative of tarnishing iran's reputation somewhat rightly so is somewhat obviously exaggerating of what iran is actually doing they're trying to convince the trauma administration that iran is really the biggest menace in this part of the world they're trying to build consensus around it showing in a metal you know waving a piece of drones showing how dangerous iran actually is and it's not operating far away from israel's border but it's operating right very closely to israel's border with lebanon and syria and the saudis jumping on board so what we see here is a particular aim at the neo conservatives and the republicans in america who see iran already for a very long time as a threat to the not just to try ministration but the core supporters of the trump administrations of people in the white house as well as you know these thirty five percent of americans who see the region in a very much in a black and white picture good versus evil and they completely disregard you know
5:07 pm
what saudi might have to do with terrorism or how israel is actually exacerbating terrorism in palestine and so on is just a very much a black and white view and i think that you know has been using that narrative for the last couple of years iran's president hassan rouhani has ordered an investigation into a plane crash which has left sixty six people feared dead the passenger aircraft disappeared from radar fifty minutes after leaving the capital tehran the assman airlines flight was traveling to yes rule yes suzhou rather in the southwest of the country emergency services have struggled to reach the crash site which is in the mountainous province to the town of senate on serious felonies has more now from. some details are known about the plane that crashed today in iran which had sixty six people on board and investigate. into the crash as shown the plane left to toronto airport in the southwest it flew through the gross
5:08 pm
mountain range but due to bad weather and lack of vision the plane collided with mt dina officials believe all sixty six passengers have died rescue teams haven't yet managed to reach the crash site because the area is rugged and difficult to reach but while the cause of the crash hasn't yet been identified international sanctions have hampered iran's ability to maintain a modern fleet and accidents of occurred frequently in recent years thirty nine people were killed in twenty fourteen after a separate passenger plane crashed after taking off from tehran seventy seven people were killed when an iran air plane crashed in bad weather in two thousand and eleven on a list so that iran has relied on smuggled or improvised parts to keep its fleets operational before sanctions were lifted iran hadn't directly bought a western built aircraft in nearly forty years iran awarded more than two hundred planes after sanctions were lifted in return for curbs on its nuclear activities
5:09 pm
the first delivery of an airbus a three twenty one arrived in iran in january last here aviation analyst terry tozer says that it's unlikely the age of the aircraft was the cause of this crash. it's a very old aircraft i think i've read something in the region twenty four years. it's it's natural that for everyone to focus on this point it has to be said that when a truck crashes americans usually is a result of some kind of air out rather than an aircraft failure although obviously it out be ruled out i don't think that necessarily the age of an aircraft will be a problem ice line extremely low and unreliable one but we never had any incident so i think it is he's more probable in this case that some kind of navigational era the funerals of two palestinian teenagers shot and killed
5:10 pm

a humanitarian and compassionate country at that thing refugees from syria and all over the world and why my question should and the hundred fifty be many people be bach an answer to that question is anxiously awaited by refugees who fled one of the most repressive violent regimes in the world than your lack. of. thirty five refugees are heading for the u.s. after leaving a stray and run prison camp on the pacific island nation of no roof it's part of a controversial resettlement deal reached between australia is government and the a bomb a ministration the matter mostly afghan pakistani or hinge and that's prompted rights groups to ask questions about where the somali and iranian refugees are being excluded from the rue prison camp is part of australia's hardline policy on blocking refugees from entering the country by boat david manne is the executive

director of refugee legal which provides assistance to refugees in nauru and on mount a silent he says the resettlement process has been too slow. but look the reality is under this bilateral deal it reminds that you know the us are still talking refugees and the question really is what i've got what how quickly will that happen so that refugees beveridge the race to. regulate their lives even the suffering in the terrible ordeal for over five years that they have enjoyed it but the other question is what will a strategy to do it because ultimately they even if this deal bridged the full number of twelve hundred fifty there will be still be many people left marooned and suffering i mean we are directing our energies in race horses together with others to work on. race or ministry happen but it is fundamental because what we know is these refugees cannot stay on and i'm an assignment you differently what we also
5:22 pm
