defense spending is in the world but the emerging superpower ramp up its security purely on imports plus the young people tap into the world of sports and streaming services we are pay t.v. killing off leash for. counting the cost on al-jazeera. this is al-jazeera. hello i'm adrian forgotten this is that he was a live from doha coming up in the next 60 minutes the battle heats up at a key town in syria's province with accusations by turkey that its military convoy was attacked. a court in his evidence that for president obama al bashir received millions of dollars from saudi arabia. a new york city police officer is fired over
5:01 am
his deadly handling of an unarmed man which led to the black lives matter movement . and power play and it's only days after the ruling coalition collapsed the prime minister's future remains on. to a key is condemning an airstrike that narrowly missed its convoy in syria's last rebel held it live province syrian russian warplanes have been pounding the area turkey's foreign ministry says the attack violated agreements with russia which is a powerful ally to syrian president bashar al assad damascus says the convoy was heading towards the town of qana shakoor and to protect rebels but ankara denies that accusation 0 saying the holder reports from beirut. a syrian or russian warplane is believed to be behind this attack close to a turkish military convoy it was making its way through the. opposition controlled
5:02 am
province of idlib turkey says it was heading to one of its observation posts. that in the harbor town of more ak and like the rebel controlled town of hunch a horn a few kilometers away it could soon come under siege and syrian government forces and their allies advance the syrian foreign ministry is accusing turkey of trying to stop the army's advance and providing support to what it calls terrorist groups turkey's local allies the so-called syrian national army were recently seen heading to the front lines to help fight the government's military push the nation and army were sent in massive amounts to the front lines and and the 2nd we have seen today mourning the turks armisen mess of calm war 202 established. and. cutting 5 highway that highway will allow the syrian government to collect cities under its control and revive trade but many population centers like lie along
5:03 am
the road the town used to shelter up to 100000 syrians before the military escalation started in april many of them had been displaced from nearby hama province it's now empty as government troops and their allies are a few kilometers from reaching its center. syrian regime did not enter haunch a clean and fighting continues in the vicinity of the city the turks have sent reinforcement to prevent the syrian regime from entering college and as usual the syrian regime targeted the turkish convoy turkey is a key guarantor in this region as part of the deescalation equipment and we do not expect it to give up the airstrike may have been a message from syria to turkey whose defense ministry has condemned it as a violation of existing agreements and cooperation with russia and to. deployment
5:04 am
of troops seems to have been its own message to syria and its backer russia not to advance any further but many are asking are both sides just posturing or will this sharp escalation in tension turn the proxy battle in into a different kind of war. beirut let's give you a little more background on the last rebel held province in syria it's home to 3 and a half 1000000 people half of whom are internally displaced air raids on the area have intensified in recent days after a short lived ceasefire pro-government forces seeking to surround the area can shake cool in the focal point in recent fighting is a rebel held town controlled by former al qaeda affiliates it's of strategic importance because it has a major highway that connects the capital damascus with the northern city of aleppo in the past 4 months the u.n. has documented 500 civilian deaths due to the fighting russia and syria though insists that they are targeting rebel groups and not civilians joshua landis says
5:05 am
the rector of the center for middle east studies at the university of oklahoma he says the battle for can't shake koon in northwestern syria is vital to all warring sides. the major highway connecting damascus to aleppo the north of the country runs right through this area and whoever controls concha koon is going to be controlling the highway as well this is vital for the national government to reestablish connections with aleppo rebuild the country otherwise aleppo is really quite cut off and will never be revived so this is a major struggle and it's very important to both sides syria and assad demand that they're going to insist that they're going to take control over all syrian territory and restore sovereignty to damascus that means taking away this area big area of italy province which is still under rebel control supported by turkey northern aleppo cars controlled by turkey and ultimately the regions in the
5:06 am
northeast that are controlled by the united states and kurdish forces the stun a process in which these these agreements were hammered out is falling apart to a degree here and it led because. originally turkey had agreed that it would withdraw rebel forces particularly jihad us forces away from conch a coon and and this and a buffer zone they've been unable to do that because the jihadi forces aren't listening to ankara so this it really raises the question of you know there isn't an agreement that's operative right now so both sides are claim the other side is violating the agreement and they're there get moving towards an outright battle russia is trying to sit in the middle of this it's very important to russia that it get along with turkey at this point the misses that we saw turkey by from russia the 400 s. 400 missiles are still in the balance america says they won't put sanctions on
5:07 am
turkey if turkey doesn't activate those missiles so russia has a lot at stake in maintaining a good relationship with turkey it will not want assad to push this battle too far and ruin that relationship. the u.s. has tested a ground floor missile with a range of more than 500 kilometers the test would have been banned under the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty washington formally withdrew though from that landmark 987 pact with russia earlier this month alleging that moscow that already been violating is the u.s. plans to test an intermediate range ballistic missile in november more from particle hated washington. the u.s. department of defense has announced that it has in fact gone ahead and tested a land based cruise missile this would have been banned under the intermediate nuclear forces treaty that the u.s. had signed with russia but let earlier this month the u.s. said that they were going to withdraw from that treaty because they said that russia had been violating the terms of the agreement now that's something that
5:08 am
russia denies so all we know is this test took place on sunday in the afternoon in california and the military saying that it went more than 500 kilometers and then accurately hit its target again the more than 500 kilometers is the key because that sort of testing hasn't been done in decades because it had been prevented by the treaty that says you cannot test land based cruise missiles that have a range between 502-5500 kilometers so the u.s. said that they were going to take this step they say they're going to have more tests in the future the big question now is where they're going to try and put these land based cruise missiles we know that the secretary of defense has hinted that he'd like to play some in asia china reacted strongly along with the u.s. allies say that that was not a good idea but this again he said it will take time before any placements are made this is a 1st step but it is a 1st step that the u.s. has now taken sudan's former president omar bashir says that he received millions of dollars from saudi arabia's royal family during his presidency but he told
5:09 am
investigators that the funds weren't included in the country's financial records the revelation came during his 1st court hearing on corruption and bribery charges since he was forced out of office by the military in april which is eras have a morgan reports now from 2. he was once feared and guarded as the head of the country now sudan's former president on what it was here is under a different guard as he appears in court to face criminal charges which include illegal possession of foreign currency and bribery investigate to see if he found more than $130000000.00 in his house days after the military deposed him in april. present. the head of a country to trial proves that there is a rule of law in the country and that no one is above the law this message is not just for the ousted government but the incoming government the case will resume next week we can't tell you what the outcome will be but we can say that we are assured that the case is going in the favor of the defendant the court heard that
5:10 am
bashir admitted to receiving $90000000.00 from saudi arabia he also admitted to receiving millions more from the ruler of the united arab emirates during his time as president bashir is 10 sudanese soldiers to fight alongside the saudi u.a.e. coalition in yemen but investigators say the former president said he doesn't know how the money he received was spent nor did he follow up on its use he was also charged in may for inciting to kill protesters in demonstrations that started in december over the rising cost of bread which quickly turned into a nationwide anti-government movement those charges are yet to be heard in court charges not addressed are charges that are brought against him by the international criminal court which involve work crimes crimes against humanity and genocide the transitional council that ousted him said that they will wait until a transitional government is formed and an independent and impartial judiciary is set up and that body will be the one to determine whether the former president should be tried for these crimes and if he is whether he's guilty or innocent. more
5:11 am
than 300000 people have been killed in the western region of darfur since 2003 and more than 3000000 displaced international experts say there are many reasons as to why bashir isn't likely to be handed to the international criminal court. recent research demonstrates. warrant of arrest released by the international court would do not really. provide incentives for a peaceful solution the current transitional government is composed also by many who are deeply dissipated allegedly of course in the massacre is that late since the 1003 so we should start asking the question on whether the just weak claim the i.c.c. could bring to sudan wouldn't be a plus saga of justice but after 30 years in power with immunity from any kind of
5:12 am
prosecution for people in thought then the corruption charges are applied to scottish justice then a ton of them were going under their 2 young famine is the secretary general of the international association of democratic lawyers he says that omar al bashir was also be tried in sudan for human rights violations done for. well actually. i'm i hope that it will be possible to. also try these aspects human rights violations in sudan it's of course very difficult in a crisis situation like this when regime is toppled then another government comes in it's very difficult to set up an independent justice but if such a trial. can be conducted in saddam it's i think much more to be preferred than a trial in an international court because we've seen that the international courts are not really
5:13 am
a very big success and so the local court is of course only over a much closer to the evidence well the whole question there is whether the international court to the international criminal court good to have an independent view on that. and. from my experience the international criminal court hasn't proven that it really is independent from i would say geo political interests at this stage and so if saddam is capable of conducting such an independent trial possibly with international assistance and help it would be very important because international law anyhow for seize the principle of subject janet which means that the priority should be to the local court because the local court is always in a much better position to assess the evidence to look at all busy the elements of the context of the crimes that were committed the local court is in
5:14 am
a much better position the question there is of course will the new sudanese government be able to set up an independent judiciary that offers all necessary guarantees if yes it would be much better to have a trial in sudan that to have a trial in an international court it with a new sound from the system to come on the program. i remember shaking with fear when checkpoints appeared in the small village of. anything guns everywhere a u.s. congresswoman denied entry to israel because painful memories of life in the occupied palestinian territories plus. a woman accused of killing a stillborn child. a manchester united dropped points of the season details coming up later. white's new york city police officer has been fired over his role in the death of a black man 5 years ago eric who was unarmed when approached by police on

5:16 am
fired in this case the unintended consequence of mr garner's death must have a consequence of its own therefore i agree with the deputy commissioner of trials legal findings and recommendations it is clear that daniel can no longer effectively serve as a. new york city police officer eric garners daughter was happy the officer was fired but said it's injustice her father was killed in the 1st place i will do everything in my power to so never see another era garner i don't even want to see another video of a person being choked out because this was supposed to happen to him is not supposed to happen i should not be here standing with my brother fatherless i should be here with my father. took that away from me also have a 17 the police union blasted the decision saying the officer was just doing his job trying to arrest an uncooperative suspect anyone that has been a police officer know every 2nd counts when you're getting possibly trained
5:17 am
through a plate glass window your responsibility is the itself the person you are trying to arrest and everyone else while there is disagreement if the police officer should have been fired all sides seem to agree on one thing that 5 years was way too long to reach a conclusion in this case now the police commissioner is saying that in the future the department will decide much sooner on disciplinary action against any police officer accused of wrongdoing gabriel's on al-jazeera new york a u.s. congresswoman who was denied entry to israel on the fischel visits a spoken out rashida to lead a critic of israeli policies against palestinians and a supporter of a global boycott movement against the country was led to offer the private visits to see her grandmother in the occupied west bank but she says she turned it down because of oppressive conditions designed to humiliate here's what she says about

5:19 am
congresswoman who were denied entry into israel held a news conference with other people who've been denied entry to that country saying it was to highlight the human cost of the israeli occupation rashid it's a leap says history does have a habit of repeating itself and she talked about a congressman who was denied entry to apartheid south africa decades ago she said the difference is at that time the u.s. president and the u.s. state department were willing to help so that he eventually could enter that country omar the other congresswoman who was denied entry to israel said by enlisting a foreign power to take action against 2 american citizens let alone elected members of congress mr trump crossed a line that other presidents have not that is a reference to the fact that president trump urged israel to deny them entry and the white house has not backed down in a statement saying israel has the right to prevent people who want to destroy it from entering the country so what used to be
