1:01 pm
this is al-jazeera. and i'm jane doubt and this is the news hour live from coming up in the program. condemnation from teheran after israel attacks dozens of iranian targets in syria. support for palestinians in indonesia as people in gaza gear up for another friday of protests. frantic search for survivors in kenya where a dam has collapsed killing at least fifty people. and more so with the zero day sporting clued in the winnipeg jets are soaring in the n.h.l. they've become. the only canadian team to make the last score in the stanley cup
1:02 pm
playoffs and they did it in style. i am. the radian foreign ministry has responded to israel's biggest attacks in syria for decades a spokesman described wednesday night strikes on dozens of targets as and a legal act of aggression based on a fabricated excuse the israeli prime minister hasn't ruled out further action he maintains it rainy and forces in syria have fired rockets at israeli positions in the occupied golan heights russia's leading global calls for deescalation and iran's foreign minister will travel to moscow for talks on monday. is in tehran. two days after the incident in question the foreign ministry of iran has issued a statement strongly condemning israeli incursions into syria calling it a violation of international law violation of israeli sovereignty and criticizing
1:03 pm
the global community silence over israel's illegal actions iranian the iranian foreign ministry statement also said that syria has a right to defend itself and lay blame on israel for supporting armed groups that are trying to destabilize syria the allegation coming from iran is a common one that israel is part of its strategic depth supports groups like groups like the islamic state and the store fronts but what was said is as important as what wasn't said no specific mention about israeli allegations that iran shot first that it is to blame for this cross border. fighting that has happened and no specific reference to the allegation by israel that it was iran that lost enormous strategic assets inside syria now moving on the government will be trying on friday to shift focus back to the twenty fifteen nuclear deal foreign minister jobs or if you will be meeting with counterparts later this week from china and russia than on words to europe in an effort to try to save what little they can of the twenty
1:04 pm
fifty nuclear agreement that the united states pulled out of earlier this week and here into her on on friday a nationwide call for anti u.s. demonstrations following friday prayers we are expecting to see large numbers of anti u.s. demonstrators out on the streets. the gulf state of bahrain has expressed support for israel's attacks inside syria on twitter its foreign minister said as long as iran has destabilized the status quo in the region and exploited states using its missiles and power any state in the region including israel has the right to defend itself and destroy the sources of danger joining us live is how to resolve a professor of political science at the university of teheran coming to us from tehran very good to have you with us so what do you think is happening is there a case of kicking iran while they're down on the fields and in the pocket. well yes i mean israel has conducted over one hundred legal strikes in the past two
1:05 pm
years nevertheless what is significant about the recent strikes is they are much more intense also the timing can really not be a coincidence and the recent strikes took place right after donald trump decided to withdraw from the deal and we know that the israelis have been against the deal since the very beginning and they have been advocating for donald trump to come out of the deal so i think perhaps this is another attempt to completely kill off the deal and i mean is it a case of it's worth it because it could certainly turn iran more hostile couldn't it don't you think it would affect the battles on the ground who the victims might be for example i mean is it a wise challenge. i mean it's a very dangerous game in norway there's no question that it's going to escalate the tensions in the region nevertheless what i think is i think israel is trying to put you on in the united states on
1:06 pm
a path of confrontation and i think they have been successful in the past year especially with donald trump would drawing from the deal we have to understand that the nuclear deal was a major cornerstone of wrong arnie's government and it's really going to hurt ronnie's government domestically and it's going to help the conservatives and how do iranians themselves feel about being the main bogeyman in the region considering how other countries are using other countries as proxy battle grounds yes i mean it's very disappointing in the sense that if you look at history iran has not attacked any country in over two hundred years whereas israel has been a major war every decade since the one nine hundred forty s. they're also the only country in the region that have nuclear weapons or not even a member of the n.p.t. brazil iran is a member of the n.p.t. in according to the i.a.e.a. has been completely obliging by did deal since it was signed so i think there is
1:07 pm
a lot of frustration disappointment even anger but perhaps not a lot of surprise because donald trump has been against this deal even since the campaign look i mean iran is active on the ground isn't it certainly in syria but i'm just wondering where this leaves iran and what options are open to it to to get back its economy for example. well i mean being in syria is going to help iran strategically against israel but it's not going to help you on the canonical for the economy iran has been following two paths on the one hand they've been following the nuclear deal to hopefully open up the iranian economy to foreign investment and trade but at the same time we have you on has come up with this term called the economy of resistance where you want is trying to rely on its own internal capacity in order to minimize you know issues
1:08 pm
such is the united states sanctioning the country thank you very much for that. could talk to you protests are set to resume along gaza's border with israel it's the seventh consecutive friday of palestinian demonstrations there the protesters are demanding the right of return for refugees so far more than forty palestinians have been killed by israeli live fire let's go live to stephanie decker on the gaza israel border what are the expectations today stephanie. well it's still pretty quiet jane but this is as expected the numbers really swell after friday prayers particular around three o'clock sit around two hours from now i'll just step out of shot there has been a kite this is some of the some of the tactics that the youth use young men they'll fly a kite with a small incendiary device over a wall that's now landed we've been watching the israeli soldiers try to extinguish that over there now we are expecting numbers some people will tell you not as many
1:09 pm
numbers as before a few thousand because this is the last friday so to speak before the naacp protests no these are expected to be huge what we understand from today now there are five protest points along this border jane this is one of them that they have added eight today so thirteen in total those eight won't be used today but it gives you an indication that they're trying to expand the amount of people along the why did it out to sort of stretch out the army on the other side and just briefly we're also understanding from sources that this is having pressure this is putting pressure on israel it seems to be having some effect because there are discussions under the table from what we understand between the authorities here indirectly with israel also european countries to try and stop the naacp or protests from going ahead because certainly there is a fear that hundreds of thousands of people will be showing up at this fence and it will include in return things like. you know easing the blockade somewhat and
1:10 pm
things like that so that will certainly be a victory for the people but again this is all unconfirmed but i think it does indicate that the protests that we've seen the pressure that the people have put on israel is having some effect and it's hope it helps the body count thanks for that stephanie ticket because we got this report save the children which is that hundreds of children in gaza have been injured by israeli gunfire during the recent protests at sites figures from the palestinian ministry of health and says at least two hundred fifty children were hit by live ammunition found that more than eighty . thousand palestinians have been injured since the protests began in march including seven hundred kids and also concludes that more than two thousand people are being treated in hospital for bullet wounds joining us in the studios measures weary associate professor in contemporary history at the middle east at cattle university ok well that's what it boils down to doesn't it at the end of the day how many innocent people are being affected by this especially children and. what's
1:11 pm
the endgame here i mean how many people have to die before it stop what what are we looking at this is the seventh friday the biggest and decided to start this demonstrations i think them the message is very clear the palestinians insist on the right for return and they want to maintain that right within the generations of palestinians they don't want they don't the they want to make sure that all generation of course but it's there inside or outside that remember that's right israelis seem very nervous especially with all of the changes or development in the region and i think they will continue on using the level of force because they have not seen themselves in a way stitch in two fronts now they are in front of us on the front of the land together i think they seem very nervous on what's happening in the region they assume that everything has been as is a planned into iran and this increase the level of tension between israelis and palestinians and the israelis use more violence and more power or force to to face but it's the news unfortunately saudi arabia being on their side doesn't give them
1:12 pm
any confidence. i think i think the israelis you know it's not enough for them to have this kind of political support i think they wish more they want iran to be outside of syria and they want to make sure that any kind of possible link between those and iran is being cut we know that from matter of fact there is no linkage at least in the last two three years there is a political support as we see it in the media however there is no serious political communication between the us and iran and we know that because there's openness through egypt and egypt actually is closing the border with so there is sort of imagination and assumptions that i think put the israelis on a in a situation where they are nervous about that and i think this will not help but history and they will increase the level of tension between us and israel because it seems that as stephanie was saying that there are possibly talks about doing something positive to stop the next. protests from going ahead i should imagine
1:13 pm
that they'll still go ahead regardless of what they offer them that they believe will be delivered there was there was an egyptian attempts they invited the. hamas leaders to cairo they did not i mean i would say a beautician because they wanted also to pressure to be also an israeli as well it doesn't seem egypt is capable to put for that reason we saw this all of this violence in the last seven basically weeks or more. thank you thank you to people in indonesia have rallied in the capital jakarta in a show of solidarity with palestinians there condemning the united states as decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital steadfastness more from jakarta . angry speeches here at the national monument and chuck tens of thousands of people have gathered here to show solidarity with palestine and they're saying that the move of the united states embassy to jerusalem is an insult to islam and the
1:14 pm
provocation to the world although it's organized by conservative groups this is an issue that unites many here in indonesia indonesia doesn't have any diplomatic relations with israel and president joke we don't again stressed this morning that he condemns the u.s. move and also couldn't arms its route and he urges the united nations to take steps against the move of the embassy and the united states embassy is very near to here only over there and the security is very very high but so far the organizers have not announced if they're going to move the whole protest to the united states embassy this is a last protest of a series of protests that have been happening since last year december when donald trump amounts to the move of the u.s. embassy and also that tens of thousands took to the streets showed anger and also urged all indonesians to boycott american products pretty boy ahead on the news including good news for malaysia's jailed opposition leader just after

for no marital rape exemption there's no medical rape recognized under the law the girl has to be obedient to a husband so there's not some aspects of the law that are called in to challenge by this case the case is a very very hard one under sudanese no but when you look at it from a human rights aspect in many many other countries of the world this would be looked at as a victim and would be provided services and care as opposed to being you know put in solitary confinement and given the death penalty so we are appealing to the president of the legislature to the ministry of justice on behalf of sudanese activists and international human rights groups that no neuron must be freed and this case must be looked at and the hope that i have here is that we have had a previous case four years ago in sudan where a young ethiopian woman was gang raped and the know at that time provided that if you couldn't prove your rape you were going to be flogged and guilty of fornication and adultery and we got together with sudanese activists and that time bad law was
