young woman advocates and family members have started to raise awareness about the high rates of violence that disproportionately impact indigenous communities tribal police departments are understaffed and under resourced another factor is that tribes don't have jurisdiction over non-native americans for all crimes there but a lot of concerns that the federal agencies don't respond that they don't take these crimes seriously a lack of evidence is the main reason federal officials are declining to prosecute crimes on reservations that shouldn't be the end of the discussion. there should be then a ok let's see what went wrong in this case why the is no evidence or why the evidence isn't good enough and make sure that that's not happening yet discover new developments in surgery i'm going to shove it up when i've been here is she much of prague to meet the surgeon pioneering new techniques in regenerating on the. a

breakthrough medical trials provide some much needed only to cystic fibrosis so for us based on all the evidence we have the virus is at least a 100 fold more effective try to bury. the cure revisited al-jazeera. 2 votes in the u.s. house of representatives set up a confrontation with both the senate and president trump. i honest i am this is al jazeera live from also coming up. how attacking his purchase of a russian missile system is rocking its relationship with the united states. the us vice president tours an overcrowded facility that's holding undocumented migrants.
11:49 am
and how does a bomb when government plans to help its public quackers survive the country's soaring inflation. now the u.s. house has voted to prohibit the sale of some munitions to saudi arabia and the united arab emirates for one the weapons are the ones being used in the war in yemen house democrat tom malinowski proposed the amendment in argued for it on the house fill a short time ago all it will do is stop something that is categorically harmful to our national interests the provision of all offensive weapons that enable saudi arabia to keep defying our advice by bombing yemen and prolonging the war there there's a reason why people say that this war has caused the world's worst humanitarian crisis more than 200000 civilians have been killed or died of starvation while the
11:50 am
who these are to blame for much of this saudi and u.a.e. airstrikes are responsible for 2 thirds of yemeni civilian casualties there was a strike on a funeral more than $150.00 civilians killed a strike on a school bus that killed 40 kids on a save the children hospital on a wedding these were not mistakes these were deliberate and precise attacks and everybody in yemen knows that the bombs causing this suffering are made in the united states and its on there has more from washington d.c. . the u.s. would halt any sort of munitions being sold to saudi arabia or the u.a.e. for one year these munitions that are used in the war on yemen and that it would be munitions that are air to ground munitions so it's not necessarily everything it does not necessarily mean stopping all arms sales to saudi arabia that is not what
11:51 am
it means but this is still very significant because it did pass the house of representatives on friday the vote was 236 in favor of this amendment 182 against it it mostly went along party lines with democrats voting for it mostly republicans voting against it however 5 republicans did vote yes for this amendment as well this is just one of several different amendments that were put forth on friday for the general national defense authorization bill which is the bill that's a very normal thing that's basically the u.s. government deciding how much money they're going to give to the defense the pentagon every year the house lawmakers in the house are able to offer up amendments that they want to see this was this key amendment they were just talking about here about halting these munitions sales to saudi arabia earlier we spoke to lawrence korb he's a senior fellow at the center for american progress and a former u.s. assistant secretary of defense he says ultimately president could still veto the
11:52 am
amendment. even though the saudi arms sales was passed by a closer vote the fact of the matter is the senate has already passed a bill on that a couple of months ago where president vetoed it was a standalone no bill so i think that has a pretty good chance of getting in. haven't talked about the compromise between the house and the senate the senate's going to have to give on something i mean you have the senate bill the house bill and then because what this does is it funds the pentagon and if this bill doesn't pass we'll have another government shutdown which i don't think they want so i think they may be willing to give on some of these issues and as i say you do a couple of once a gold the senate did pass a bill which drum vetoed about providing arms to the saudis and the and the u.a.e. so i think that has a chance of making it into the final bill but obviously nothing is until they
11:53 am
really do get a bill the president could veto it but if he vetoes it then the pentagon runs out of money because busy the pentagon is only funded through the end of september and we're in the summertime now congress is going to be off when the 1st week of august through the labor day so there's not going to be you know much time so if president trump does veto it then of course he'll be faced with another government shutdown and when we had one last january he would he says he took most of the blame for now as part of that same bell the house also have a center a quiet president on trying to get congressional permission before he launches any attack on iran the senate rejected as some a measure last month but will now have to negotiate with the house i haven't seen tears in the larger defense bill the 251275 it was unusually bipartisan with 27 republicans joining all but
11:54 am
a handful of democrats in support and it support as one of the house as my sniffled democrats and one of its most conservative republicans and the amendment has also backed by an unusual combination of the left and right wing lobbying groups. now staying in washington and testimony from u.s. special counsel robert muller has been delayed by a week published a report on russian meddling in the 2016 u.s. presidential campaign he had been due to speak to 2 separate house committees on wednesday the public testimony has been pushed back to july 24th at his request now police in gibraltar have released all 4 crewmembers of an iranian oil tanker that was seized last week the ship was detained by british forces on suspicion of taking oil to syria in breach of e.u. sanctions all 4 were released on bail without charge. turkey says its defense minister has spoken to his u.s. counterpart on the phone to discuss his nation's controversial purchase of the

russian s. 400 missile defense system who see our car reportedly told told mark esper that the deal does not mean that turkey is changing its strategic direction the 1st a livery was flown into the air base near the capital ankara with several moishe jeweled over the next few days the us is ready to impose sanctions it's also threatening to stop supplying turkey with its if the 5 fighter jets sin and cos yahoo has from istanbul. russian cargo that's got turkey's allies who are it. this 400 surface a year missile system is expected to give the turkish military a clear advantage in the region it can detect and destroy incoming missiles up to 400 kilometers away back to u.s. and nato say it is not compatible with their weapon system and insist it could pose a risk to their near stealth fighter jet the f. 35. we don't know exactly the extent. the russians would allow this means size
11:56 am
to be used in what kind of targeting the possibilities of course the turkish sides argue that turkey would be totally free to use it but the more much depends on the call being. friend and foe i didn't cations nato says it is concerned about the potential consequences of this missile purchase while washington has vowed to impose sanctions if that's $400.00 ever become operational . for turkey this is a done deal despite a possible setback for its defense industries that would earn up to $12000000000.00 from their $35.00 program. surgeon if used the f. 400 is a temporary solution to turkey's immediate need for air defense but we have many partnerships of the u.s. in f. 35 and other defense industries that are vital for us because the engines of the helicopters fighter jets we produce are u.s.

made no one would desire any battle these imports. the list of possible u.s. sanctions ranjan servility and include cutting turkey off for american and international loans preventing its transactions on foreign exchanges and targeting turkish banks businesses and executives took a series of tools the russian system because those for hundreds were more sophisticated and cheaper among other reasons the system is expected to be operational by october during last month's $220.00 summit in japan u.s. present donald trump said it was the obama administration that refused to deliver american patric missile security and that was unfair prisons are gone so is trump has now promised not to impose sanctions on tricky but it is unclear whether trump will be able to persuade congress to do the same. al-jazeera stumble let's take a closer look at the russian s. 400 missile defense system and the f.
11:58 am
35 fighter jets the s 400 will give turkey a significant advantage over its neighbors in terms of air cover the systems missiles can simultaneously track and destroy incoming targets up to 400 kilometers away the u.s. is concerned that turkey's s 400 purchase will compromise the security of its f. 35 jets stealth fighter is the back door and of the u.s. and nato is future air power so he's already bought for and wants another 116 but the u.s. believes russia may use the s 400 system to collect sensitive data about the f. $35.00 now richard white says a defense analyst at the global risk consultancy what he straps and he says the country is wanting to buy the s $400.00 won't be deterred by threats of u.s. sanctions. about a decade ago the turks decided they needed a better air defense system and they realize they didn't have a strong enough national defense industry to build their own so they started
11:59 am
initially looking at a chinese system but the u.s. and nato managed to sway them from doing that now though they've gone ahead with the russian system seems to me plausible that if the turks had such a system and also had the f. $35.00 that over time being able to watch the f. 35 very closely very frequently would give the russians still control the software of the system and some insight into how to use the f. how to attack the f. 35 and that plane is really where the us and nato has put its bets for the future there have been a vast amount of money poured in and so you want to pose those there's also as you mention a general concern about nato and its ties with turkey and her friends drifting away towards russia or at least away from nato and there is a some hope that by putting a firm stance now that could avert that and finally there's a big concern that not only turkey but many other countries might purchase the
