12:02 am
a to know when over waste ah, after the deadliest escalation and violence since last year's war in gaza sees far between israel and the palestinian group is let me do you had, has come into force 40 for palestinians including 15 children have been killed since the fighting began on friday after israel launched what it described as preemptive strikes on godaddy. it claimed it was only targeting members of islamic jihad, but palestinian officials say at least one 3rd of the deaths have been civilians to senior. if you had commanders have been killed in the strikes, including the groups leader in southern gaza colored men saw a group has retaliated with hundreds of rockets far across the border some as far as jerusalem. but israel's army says 97 percent have been intercepted. all this
12:03 am
while food and few was fast running out for people living in garza most are only getting 4 to 8 hours of electricity a day with crossing points into the strip closed since tuesday. when, when i'm is in west jerusalem festus, go to suffered uncle lute who's in gaza. what is the sci fi or truce holding so far? well, we can say that the, the situation is relatively quiet. there were 2 launching rockets attempt by the policy and fractions to worse israel, and there have been no israeli response on these 2 attempts. are still we can, we could hear the israeli drones flying over over our heads. but there are no exclusions in the law for at least 15 to 20 minutes. so yes, relatively in comparison with the last couple or last 3 days,
12:04 am
we can say the sci fi r cam to effect and in the last half an hour, do we know what the terms of a top of, according to islamic jihad, the main point of dispute in the last one to 4 hours was the egyptian guarantees the they were seeking no guarantees from egypt that it will work. i mean, egypt, on the release of islamic jihad senior lead up that was arrested in the west bank. but some i thought the so since they got these guarantees that egypt will work on that on there will help and relieving outside the so as them get accepted, the fees fire. there was another point which is also moving the islamic jihad or the telephone and prisoner was in a hunger strike for more than
12:05 am
a 100 day moving to the hospital to receive the medical treatment. so these are the disputed points that seems at the end. they reach an agreement on that. so after the, solving this issue is let me, she had said that, accepted the egyptian a proposal for the sci fi up color. thank you very much. and let's get to that. i should, i'm in west jerusalem. what is israel saying about the sci fi since the ceasefire went into effect about 30 minutes ago, there have been a sporadic reports of incoming rockets into israel. the sirens were activated in the south just a short time ago warning people to take shelter. but as far as israel is concerned, this operation is over. it is saying that the military said a short time ago that it used helicopters fighter jets. an armed drones were among
12:06 am
the tools that used to target is thumb that you had across the gaza strip. it has thanks egypt for its role in mediating the cease fire, but says if attacks continue into israel, it will not hesitate to quote, act forcefully and says it will take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that the daily lives of israelis will not be disrupted earlier this evening, the prime minister. yeah. your la peed went to the central military base in tel aviv to assess the situation. he had said earlier that the objectives of the so called operation breaking dawn had been fulfilled and that there was no need for the operation to continue. what were these objectives from the israeli strategic mindset? the objective was to neutralize islamic jihad with most, if not all of the senior leadership being killed, as well as the feeling that
12:07 am
a kind of divide had been created between is found that she had and hamas, which governs garza with hamas remaining on the sidelines. there was a concern that if this operation was protracted and the death toll continued to rise, that perhaps hamas might enter the fray. it appears for now that that has not happened into her going. i thank you very much indeed. well, she follows another day of violence as we've heard which left several people dead here is that you know? so it has been following developments in gaza and is more of a days event. israel has carried out the 3rd day of air rates of the gaza strip. messiah struck refugee counts and destroyed apartment building. eye witnesses say the attacks took place without warning. knowing what to say. we were praying. suddenly we found a miss. silent now home. we didn't know where it hit us from. it was so sudden and
12:08 am
a little rough fashioned. israel says the target was pals, tina islamic jihad, and the 2 of the armed groups leaders have been killed. handed masoud, a senior member of a puts brigade, the group's motor wing was killed in rafa near the tips border. israel also essays, tunnels, alpha rocket launch, size and weapons stores had been destroyed, is slavic to had responded by firing rockets still with israel. system which were shot down by the i don't mess file system. other small loop house. mean groups are also believe to have fire rocky separate countries in organizations have condensed the violence. the un humanitarian coordinator for garza said, she's gravely concerned by the civilian death is in injury while another you, what official says the israeli attacks are not just legal,
12:09 am
but you are responsible and that god is on the verge of the humanitarian crisis. with border crossing, still crone, no humanitarian or medical aid is able to enter, caused a fuel shortage, has already forced the sole power plant to shut down and hospitals are warning of dire consequences. if assistance does not arrive soon, you may see al jazeera garza city therein, reporters, a journalist, and co founder of land for all and organization seeking a peaceful shad homeland phase. readies and palestinians joins us live from televi . thank you very much for being with us. do you expect the spot to hold? it seems to me so there's no reason for for either side to break the fire. it seems that he will hold full for the route for, for the next few weeks or months. not too long, but for the next future. yes. i mean,
12:10 am
a bill. this is very much an operation against the internet. you had what else was hoping to achieve. i think it's really very much clear what you wanted to achieve because because you so what was special about the separation is that is a topic without being provoked. usually there is some excuse for us to, to launch an attack on guns. rockets being fired into this time, we did not happen said attacking in order to prevent an attack came after attack. so it's really not very clear what were really the objective. yes, may be one of the objectives he's to reinforce scene away from us, which is a bit strange. but anyhow, this is starting to view commerce as it uses the p a
12:11 am
in a way that some kind of a deal of peace and quiet in return for, for a couldn't make benefits, started to giving workers from garza to enter after long years that preventative. so maybe there is some kind of an effort to reinforce some aspects, but it's, it's not the it, it will prevent the next classes. and tony seizing that in some ways. hum us stance to gain by is, i mean you had being weakened. is that what you're suggesting? that's what it seems. now, that's what even aim seems to reinforce from us and make it even stronger in whether that will work. we don't know because how much may be will be
12:12 am
portrayed a little bit as, as badly as the p a is portrayed for, for being software as well. so we don't know how what pressure will be on from us. but yes, a seems, at least for. busy for know, for the short term from us is coming out to stronger as an initial, did you people pointing out that is where this comes ahead of an election in israel . what, what do voters think of an operation like this being so close? opportune election, many commentators, especially for the student teachers, but also in the radical lesson. israel claim that you know, went into the trying to repeat, went into the separation in order to make himself look stronger. and before you actually, he's viewed, it could be tweak, use a civilian, he was never really in combat in the army and he's
12:13 am
being accused of being soft with the premise teenage of having any ceramic parties coalition. so yes, it could be that he wanted to any comes up quite well to show it to ration only 3 days with no casualties. and lisa the side and it was ran quite calmly by le pete. he may gain, he may gain, he needs this credit because he's so new in amy's office, only less than a month. so it could help him to make it look a little bit more responsible compared with him. yeah. with his experience as 12 more than 12, he has a power report. thank you very much for your thoughts. so he offers news
12:14 am
are from london historic shift of power in columbia, where a former gorilla has become the country's 1st leftist president. and the 2 front runners via to become kenya's, next president about a stand out corruption, but voters question their records. and the nightmare start from manchester, united to new manager in the premier league, peter will have details in sport. ah ukraine as accuse russia of again shelling, europe's largest nuclear power plant in upper asia. keith says russian forces damaged 3 radiation sensors on saturday night. at least one worker was injured. was a parisha plant, was captured by russian forces in march, but is still run by ukrainian technicians. you endotomic, observers, warner military activity. the site could cause a nuclear disaster. ukraine's state emergency service as well as video showing the
12:15 am
aftermath of shelling in the southern port. city of mich alive, emergency personnel can be seen putting out a fire on the roof of a building. it is not known if there were any casualties in the attack. on saturday, ukraine's state security service detained to men accused planning strikes on ship building. infrastructure in mich alive, russia deny is targeting civilians in what it describes as a special military operation in ukraine. the 1st grain ship to leave ukraine since russia invaded, has experienced a delay, and as not docked in lebanon as planned. the recently left to desa last monday, carrying tens of thousands of tons of corn. it was due in tripoli by sunday, and it's not clear why it hasn't arrived. a delay comes as for more cargo ships, sail out of ukrainian port in the black sea, the left with almost a 170000 tons of grain under an export deal negotiated by turkey and the u. n.
12:16 am
before the war, russia and ukraine accounted for nearly a 3rd of global grain exports partly supplying some of the world's poorest countries. john hendern is in ukraine's capital. keven has more on the latest nuclear facility attack. zillow, as he wants to have an international investigation, he wants officials from the international atomic energy agency to go to that site and to investigate what's happening he's, he does call it nuclear tear what the ukrainians are saying is that the russians have been firing from the site of that nuclear facility. well, that naturally draws return fire, but ukraine says, it wasn't the military that struck that cited insist that russia was the one that did that. and today we had a worker injured during yet another strike on that facility. so there is a legitimate concern around the world. this is the largest nuclear facility, not just in ukraine, but in europe, and it could cause a nuclear disaster,
12:17 am
as we saw, ensure noble, back in the eighty's. so this is a major concern, not just as a lensky, but also the international community, the head of v i. e. a raphael grossi said he was extremely concerned. he said there was a very real risk of disaster invite his ass or he doesn't just mean in ukraine. so there will perhaps be an investigation. but it's a difficult situation because van facility is behind the ration line. that means there are russian troops around it. russian troops firing around it and inside our ukrainian workers essentially working at gunpoint under the direction of the russians. so whether or not this investigation will come off or not, that is unclear at the company that owns that particular facility. it's a ukrainian company, they said it was sheer luck that in this strike today, there wasn't a radiation late because there were spent nuclear rods and those are left out in
12:18 am
the open air in that portion of the facility. and there was a risk of radiation coming out if that actual site had been breach. so that is the concern of the a zelinski concern is who is to blame for this? he says it's the russians. and it ran burgeson also and expert on nuclear weapons proliferation. joint is live now from los angeles. thanks for being with us. how dangerous is the situation at that power plant? do you think was very dangerous. if the warrant comes, is the plant that is, the russians are remain there, or if there's a conflict around the plant out there, 6 reactors, this could be a catastrophe where these reactors breached the radioactive elements released, and the material are dispersed across the landscape. so broadly, and indeed do you just as if they were radiation, nick, it wouldn't only be ukraine affected. that's correct dog. depending on prevailing winds, the winds could go south as well as north north,
12:19 am
west or north east. it all depends on the prevailing williams or at the time of the release st. i mean, do you think that russia is deliberately targeting the plant to raise fears about a nuclear incident and in order to try to discourage the west from continuing to support ukraine in the complaint that we are a cynical thing in the part of the rushes, the rush. ready evidently, are using the plan to bombard our local locality. so you have missiles, their, their stories, storing munitions. they're evidently, are they reportedly $500.00 russian troops at the plant to plant as a hostage, radiological, hostage for the rest, as at this point time. so are there any safeguards in place at all to, to avoid a disaster over for the safeguards the left of the well, the russians and the russians had, frankly, leave the plan to allow the previous or operate the plant out there for the ultimate safeguard. i mean, it is lensky you on said that russian nuclear tara requires a stronger response from the international community sanctions on the russian nuclear industry and nuclear fuel. and in response,
12:20 am
we had the foreign policy to saying the u condemns. rushes. miniature activities runs a parisha. this is a serious and responsible breach of nuclear safety rules. and another example of russia disregard for international law norms. but beyond the condemnation what, what do you think the community needs to do to try and prevent a disaster? really, the rest of the time we get to jesus pleaded with all parties to keep away from these nuclear plants. and nonetheless, the russians occupied general, they left church and the actors default and they have focused on taking this particular plant. again, the, the largest land in europe is $63.00 actors, largely reactors at the plant. and this poses a very, very concerning risk. there have been reports that the cranium may have dropped. what's called kamikaze drones against the plant that the wounded of several people cruise missiles oversaw the plan. here is the risk of accident, the risk that the russians were goes south for the russians. what would the
12:21 am
russians do? would be making the plans for the night, the plan as revenge. you know, this pure speculation of course, but the risks are palpable if conflict would end up the plan. so we could have a very significant release. i mean, a major relation in europe. is there any kind of attempt alert at the moment to try and come up when you conventions that would mean these kind of things are out of bounds or people are dear to a sort of particular protocol when it comes to nuclear power stations. it's a good question. the, there was an effort in 1970 some to immunize the plants, but that efforts the additional protocols, the geneva conventions, $977.00, allow attacks against nuclear reactors. they contribute to military efforts. and that can be brought to find. so the plans in effect are legitimate to military targets. and what we could have, however, is a review of the international atomic energy agency. the committee on the sermon and
12:22 am
geneva should review the matter. and there should be a prohibition banning attacks on any reactor. there's a present for this between india and pakistan. the 19th latency negotiated an agreement which forbade attacks under to power plants and other related facilities . that should be the international standard. dr. bennett ran that. thank you very much indeed. have your analysis. thank you. thank you. and i, jerry is turning to it's old, abandoned oil refineries after the cost of importing fuel rose sharply in just 3 years. despite having the largest oil reserves in africa. and the country loses billions of dollars, importing refined petroleum products. how many days reports from port? how caught my some of nigeria is oldest refineries associated rusty components of nigeria is old refinery. every mood to be replaced with new ones. it's a biggest repair project at this prowling 56 year old facility we are looking at
12:23 am
been able to operate this affinity us, at least in a more of 90 percent of this install capacity will really have some freedom and have some reduction in the importation of this products that we're going to do for decades, the countries 40 finer is we're allowed to rot, as it imports refined product and subset the regime that last year, cost nigerian nearly $4000000000.00, despite having the largest crude oil reserves in africa. after turning this plan to round, it's expected to meet only a 3rd of domestic requirements of refined petroleum product. for the refineries are located here in port taco, but even at full capacity, they can only process 210000 bottles of oil by day. so to make up for the shop for the nigerian government has bought shares in a private facility owned by africa's richest men, a liquid equity, which is due to come on stream. next year. head of nigeria, oil company says reviving the facilities was overdue. as the subsidy program
12:24 am
becomes increasingly costly, the combination of our own ability and capacity and also that to be done with anybody we. we met nigeria init if foot over at william our products that we didn't stop at this in a number of what us money into dishes that we had in small model larry primaries of 10 to 20000. but as my day of he should say, putting the refineries to work, we'll have concert forming exchange currently being spent on important products of nigeria can refine with good management. now, judas, all refineries may be on the path to revival after so many years, but only after hundreds of billions of dollars are lost to corrupt officials and government in decision. i'm a decrease al jazeera, pawtucket nigeria, firefighting teams from mexico and venezuela, a health in cuba battle flames that have engulfed a major oil storage facility. oil tanks at the facility and kansas have been
12:25 am
burning since it was struck by lightning on friday. at least one cuban firefighter has died and more than a dozen others are missing. officials say a 122 people have been injured and august in that joint as life and that answers. and so they make any progress at all and trying to get to the far under control. they mean here in our hosting that they finally making today, venezuelan and mexican specialists, firefighters with specialist knowledge. and also it's crucial that you need to put out the industrial fire arrived. and as of an hour ago, state media is reporting that they have successfully without the fire one of the tanks to thanks for banding. when i write that today, not only one is burning, but the situation is still critical, not least because right next to the 2nd time. so burning is the 3rd. thank. the idea is to keep the temperature on that as low as possible. keep it down. so that, that in turn doesn't explode. and does any of this effect power supplies in cuba?
12:26 am
big time, i was recently just about one of the top energy specialists on latin america press florida. and he said to me that it sounds terrible, but the file is not really the story from an analytical point of view here in the system, a thumbs up where i am right now. there's a huge pause on the ports receives every day and times around $440000.00 barrels. i should say, of cuban crude oil. now that oil is processed in times, that's why i'm not where the biggest power station is the center of the summer electric power stations in cuba. so, so in his analysis, really the whole question is whether or not that poor infrastructure that sends the oil that docks to, to the silos, to one of which is still burning. and then it's transported. so the rest of the countries generate power. whether or not that infrastructure has been critically damaged. i think it's really a question of how about the situation is going to be obviously it's going to affect things on the situation. and here in terms of power is already dia,
12:27 am
for many months now, in the province, at least not so much in the castle. people have been going daily, millions, we've been going daily without power for 5 hours, sometimes 14 hours. and you can imagine in august the rushing food and the mosquitoes kids not able to watch watch tv do the homework. like without electricity, would be going anywhere in the world, not least in the caribbean, in august. so it's a very serious situation and august, and thank you very much indeed. rival groups and political factions from chad or a step closer to piece members of the transitional, military counselor among those, do to sign an agreement in the country capital on monday. as ma'am, and reports from doha, it could and decades of instability. chad may finally be on the brink of peace, a government of national unity disarming and integrating fighters and a general amnesty are set to be among the main articles of the long awaited peace

agreement. to be slight katara, the talks got off to a difficult start in march from factions walked out demanding greater presentation, assisted members of the transition military council or t. m. c. not run for office. there is a commitment from the government. so what if you look at the rebuild side? the issues of that is a way to begin to get very complicated because you have new demand going to like the mama they be shouldn't stand for reelection or a ton of assets. you have to also reconcile the competing rival we will between the opposition. i rebel one because while the might be for me, for the position you have about 40 experience in, in the process into the draft agreement, he's meant to pave the way for a national dialogue later this month. and the new constitution, chad has been locked in internal conflict for 3 decades. it's debbie came to power in 1991 in

12:38 am
a long time. one of the reasons why can you develop sort of what a calling pace you know, and it would be running in lots of resources actually not spent on ourselves this spend on the crop and politician. when roy dingo was prime minister, some of his family members were implicated and scandalous, stolen a subsidy, do setting is supported. he's the one who can play both of the main kinds of corruption and both of them. denial of william root over school days may subsidies as agriculture minister he's so promising to fight corruption. 8 he's been deputy president for the last 9 years during which to be se corruption has balloon as have borrowing to funded china lend the money to build a new highway. one of several costly infrastructure projects built by the government of router and outgoing president who kenyatta,

12:40 am
polarized country with a long list of social and economic reforms. the former m 19 movement rebel defeated the business magnet for an unders in june. his rise to power is a historic turning point. for a country that's been scarred by decades of war, between the government and rebel groups from 50 georgia live now from bota. how's the ceremony been going so far about lauren? this has been a money field. symbolism and transfer mission promises and expectations for the ends of set up the streets of downtown boca usually playing in ceremonies for quite a while, even sombre upstairs with just a few 100 guests that participate. but in this case, it was promising that his will be the government that the people up to called for
