5:05 am
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 and arm drones, were among the tools that used to target is so much 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 year le pete 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
5:06 am
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 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 . i have been, emma is director of the electronic intifada to a website which focuses in palestine in the israeli occupation. he says, palestinians and guys are con, live normal lives because israel isn't held accountable. people in gaza don't get to go back to anything like normal because they're still living on the israel's siege. that is a form of silent violence against every man,
5:07 am
woman and child in gaza. 24 hours a day, $365.00 days a 15 years. so unfortunately it's fragile. this is going to happen again. i can't tell you if it's going to be in a day a week, a month or a. yeah. but it's going to keep happening because israel enjoys total impunity for its crimes against the palestinian people and not just impunity, but full and active support. remember, it was bombing gaza with weapons provided by the united states by the european union, by canada, who all stood by israel. and these are the same countries that the sending billions of dollars of weapons to ukraine, supposedly to resist occupation and invasion. but here they are helping israel perpetrate, occupation invasion and tara, against the civilian population is really just routinely call these regular
5:08 am
massacres. if palestinians mowing the lawn idea being you have to massacre them, kill a bunch of them. so they get the message that they should just surrender and accept that faith. and it's fully supported by the united states, the european union, canada, and sadly, now you know, it pains me to say a number of arab regimes that have fully normalized, that ties with this, frankly murderous regime is where the forces have demolished palestinian horns during a raid in the northern occupied west bank, bulldozers accompanied by israeli forces destroyed 2 houses in the village of romana, near jeanine. one belong to the grandfather of a 20 year old palestinian man was accused of murdering 3 israelis in early may. the u. s. senators passed a sweeping package worth $430000000000.00 coming climate tax and health care
5:09 am
democrats. it's a big victory for you as president joe biden. the votes was split down the middle with democrat vice president campbell horace, asking her ballard to secure the when $370000000000.00 will go towards climate projects, making it the largest investment in the sector in u. s. history. osland jordan reports. after round the clock to beat on saturday and sunday, the u. s. senate passed the last major economic bill of jo biden's agenda, the inflation reduction act. on this vote. the age of 50, the nase of 50, the senate being equally divided. the vice president votes in the affirmative and the bill as amended is passed. the bill will raise $430000000000.00 for a wide range of priority, improving health care coverage, tackling climate change by investing in electric cars and renewable energy.
5:10 am
imposing a mandatory 15 percent income tax on corporations and cutting the deficit. this bill will kick start the era of affordable, clean energy in america. it's a game changer. it's a turning point, and it's been a long time incoming. the bill had been considered dead until democratic leaders negotiated a compromise name with senators jo, mansion and kiersten cinema that guaranteed their support. senate republicans offered amendment after amendment in hopes of destroying the democrats unity. they blocked a plan to require private health insurers to charge no more than $35.00 a month for insulin, but that wasn't enough to derail the overall bill. after the vote, senate republicans issued a statement calling the bill a disaster. earlier on sunday and just out of cobit isolation, president joe biden signal to reporters,
5:11 am
he thought the bill would pass. now it's up to the house of representatives to approve the bill before biden consigned it into law. that vote is tentatively set for friday. rosalind jordan l 0 washington or gregory whitestone, is the president and he owe the american council on renewable energy. he's in bethesda, maryland, and he's with me. no, sir, thank you very much. indeed, for being with us on al jazeera, the democrats had to make a lot of compromises in order to be able to get this bill through. is this as big a deal as the democrats would have us believe? i think it is. i think it's a historic achievement. this really represents the 1st time in the united states that we have seen congress take a serious effort to deal with the climate problem and, and this fell, the programs that includes are ones we've been advocating for for many years. and i think it will have a huge impact allowing the clean energy transition that we know we're
5:12 am
going to need to deal with climate change to really accelerate. and we've already gotten a good start, but we need this help to be able to be even ballpark with the climate objectives that we have in there. we know we're going to have to meet. i'm just having a brief look at some of the, the, the main headlines in this. there seem to be tax incentives, incentives to steer consumers towards electric vehicles and towards renewable energy sources like wind and solar pod that makes sense. it also includes millions of dollars to climate resiliency funding for tribal governments and native hawaiians $60000000000.00 to help disadvantage areas disproportionately affected by climate change. i think my question really is, is there a danger? do you think that the money is actually going to be too thinly spread and should it actually be better focused on significant projects and significant sectors that could have a major jumbo create a major jumping in dealing with climate change?
5:13 am
yeah, i think it has those major programs every really need that we've been focusing on, which are long term incentives for the 1st time for wind and solar and other renewable technologies. we've been dealing in this country with the on, again, off again, tax incentives. the don't allow businesses really to plan to grow, to plan, to get to the level renewable penetration we know we're going to need now for the 1st time renewable energy developers and manufacturers will know that we have long term incentives in place. and it's long overdue in this country. renewable incentives have been phasing down. and meanwhile, there are permanent incentives for fossil fuels that have been on the books for more than a century. so we need the tax code to be helpful to be spurring us forward to meet our climate targets. and i think that's where this bill's gonna achieve. yeah, a lot of the bill. it again, just for the a brief look seems to be based on significant tax increases for large corporations
5:14 am
. one would imagine that they are unlikely to sit down and accept what they're being offered. is there a danger? do you think that philosophy, enthusiasm for the plan might be there now? it might end up actually getting bogged down in legal processes is big companies try to fight back on this. i don't think that's where it's going to go. but i do think we're likely to see an accident when the house takes his fill up on friday. and i, what we see a lot of the american economy is already making the pivot to clean energy. a lot of the demand for clean energy is coming from big corporations and high tech companies that have data centers. countries that use a lot of energy. they like renewables because not only is it cleaner and climate safe, but the numbers are working out between technological innovation and economies of scale. and most of the country today,
5:15 am
renewables are the cheapest source of new power. so we're getting to the point where the economics are going to be driving that clean energy transition that we desperately need to make and as fast as the renewable sector has been growing in the u. s. and around the world. we know we've got to do better. we've got to grow faster. as we mentioned before, the democrats had a fight in their hands just to get to a 5050 split on base with comma harrison putting through her own costing vote. if there is no follow up, if there's a change of government in the u. s. and things change is the amount of money that the industry is getting. know enough to put it on the right track towards really dealing with climate change. i think so and to be clear, these are changes to the tax code that they're long term. so we're looking at 10 years of incentives that would take another act of congress and you know,
5:16 am
that would have to be signed in the law, the house to overturn the policies that are established in the spell. assuming we get through the house, which i think we, well, the president signs it of course key. well, it would, it would take a lot to turn that on to chad. so historically, these kind of incentives have lasted and have worked. so we're confident we're going to see the growth we're looking for, whether it gets us all the way to where we need to be for climate as another question. so we know we're going to be in the ballpark, but we need to do more. gregory whitestone, we really appreciate your being with us and i'll just get a thank you very much indeed for your time. thanks for having you've got stella had on al jazeera times and argentina. thousands turned out to pray to the patron saint of bread and work. and revisit the home of a death family in bangkok, struggling to survive under a road bridge on $20.00 benefits. a month. a

a difficult start in march from factions walked out, demanding greater presentation. they assisted members of the transitional, military council or t. m. c. not run for office. there is a commitment from the government. so what if you look at the rebels 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 return of these assets. you have to reconcile the competing rival. we will between the opposition. i repeat what? because why the might be for me, for the position you have about 40 experience in, in the process into the draft agreement is 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. edris debbie came to power in 1991 in a military coup and served as president until his death last year. fighting among
