6:02 am
some a binge of a house the story. thanks when the bombs stop it's the stand to see what's left of the home day one of the five hour ceasefire brought that he comforted the people trapped in besieged eastern ghouta. there's no food or water they always say there's a ceasefire but they come back and inform us the situation is really bad france is already high and we do not have money at the shelter. or water and we do not. close to six hundred people have been killed in the latest onslaught hospitals have been hit and medical supplies are running out of there you know suddenly the airplane came towards us my mother screamed get inside the house i told her i will wait for her and the missiles exploded. as jets roared above sides accused each other off by leading the troops leave it
6:03 am
alone and look this is the truth this is the ceasefire this place had fifty women and fifty children thank god they left before the airstrikes. ordered by the russian president the syrian government had agreed to hold fire but despite the violations moscow is optimistic about its plan. in the square citic humanitarian corridor also have been sit through which aid will be delivered and medical evacuation will be carried out in the opposite direction also billions who are willing to leave will be able to leave in full compliance with the un resolution to fall over. a un force says. they can bring out. in. there but without a consent from all warring sides. we need urgent assistance. aid agencies including the u.n. are frustrated that since saturday words have not translated into action if we are
6:04 am
within a day millions distance and miles distance from is that it would in the last unable really. medical supplies that they're desperately needed to bring to people in the area so this iteration is really highly unsatisfactory to say the least there aren't many people in willing to brave the rough at the crossing and even if they wanted to leave it isn't clear where will they go it was the insight is they also should be able to stay there will be back and there will not be at bat and he might . be able to reach out for them there's not much faith in promises of help in this damascus suburb under siege for the last five years but even the dead are not exempt from destruction of a job made out of the era. of the turkey syria border and the u.s. state department is blaming russia for much of the recent misery caused by the syrian government in jordan now from washington the state department spokesperson
6:05 am
heather nauert tells al-jazeera the situation in the middle east does have a common destabilizing factor and that is the government of russia russia had said years ago that it would help but help syria get rid of its chemical weapons russia failed to do that. the syrian regime was back on its heels years ago who came in and prop them up but russia dead so without russian support syria we believe the united states government believes would not be in the position to attack people of the misery that the syrian people are feeling right now is because of its own people its government the government of bashar al assad and also russia well hillary mann leverett his chief executive of strategy say political risk consultancy she says russia's truce is being used to deflect international criticism. from the russian perspective to make this work and from the syrian government perspective to make this work is to enable those syrian government with
6:06 am
russians of port to retake eastern so how do they do that how do they do that most effectively they have to they have to in a sense mute international criticism they have to give the international community away to feel good about itself as russia and syria russia backed the syrian government to retake eastern good as they did with aleppo so i think this is more of a measure to keep the international community at bay as a syrian government takes the territory i think it's nothing more then and attempt to minimize criticism as they can to continue the military option operation until they've retaken the territory you already see the united states really getting out of the way the united states has more than two thousand troops in syria not one of them is lifting a finger to go anywhere near is john good and in addition to that the u.s. commander in the area general but said today that the u.s. interest in syria is just to combat isis he made no mention of going against the
6:07 am
government of bashar assad and he made no mention of helping the civilians and you're good to us so i think when you look at what the united states is actually doing on the ground militarily and what the military u.s. military commanders are saying and doing there they're basically standing aside for russia to work with the syrian government to retake this territory u.n. experts say north korea has been sending supplies used in syria's chemical weapons program let's go in the shop response from washington we'll get you the sun but in just a second we'll move on to some of the top stories for you the u.s. media is saying the son in law of president donald trump his advisor jericho has lost his access to top secret security briefings he is one of several aides under scrutiny about the level of information they've been allowed to see his own official. well the white house will never confirm who has
6:08 am
security clearance and it was level well it's confidential secret or top secret but this whole row blew up a couple of weeks ago over there or porter incident no you remember he was an executive secretary to donald trump which essentially meant that every piece of paper that the president saw went across his desk and it was revealed he only had interim security clearance when he faced allegations of sposato abuse he then resigned and john kelly who is the chief of staff said that he would start a fool skill review of who had full security clearance and interim security clearance it was revealed that in november forty seven people who want very closely with the president only had that interim security clearance and they included don't mcgann white house chief counsel and also say the huckabee saunders who of course is the white house press secretary we've heard from a spokesman for jerry said he has cooperated fully with the clearance process and will continue to do the job that he has been given by the president john kelly who
6:09 am
is the chief of staff has also said that the clearance that jerry kishan has got a lowe's home to do his job not confirming whether or not he has been downgraded gerri as we know is working very closely on the idea of a middle east peace process and also watch very closely on relations between the united states and mexico one final interesting thing is that security clearances or they can be set aside by the president at any time he can turn round to anyone at any point including a son in law and senior advisor and saying there is something here that i think you need to see and that could carry that top secret branding doesn't really matter it's up to the president to decide who sees what one of christianity is holiest sites in jerusalem has reopened three days after it was closed because of a tax protester the church of the holy sepulcher is believed by many to be the site of the crucifixion and the resurrection of jesus christ it reopened after the local mayor suspended a plan to impose substantial back taxes on church assets. at least five soldiers
6:10 am
have been killed in a bomb attack by marxist rebels in colombia fighters from the national liberation army bombed on the vehicles on a road between two northern towns ten other people were wounded its act happened a day after the group said it would hold a unilateral ceasefire during elections next month. even as whalen leader nicolas maduro has officially registered himself as a candidate for the presidential election in april the opposition is boycotting the vote and calling it a fast summer as main rivals are barred from standing against him or have left the country to avoid detention venezuela is going through an unprecedented recession with widespread shortages of basic goods and medicines. well that economic crisis is fueling mass migration into neighboring countries hundreds of thousands of people have gone to colombia and many others are heading south into brazil al-jazeera is gabriel elizondo reports from the northern brazilian city. on what the u.n. is calling a refugee crisis. in
6:11 am
a makeshift encampment in the center of town hundreds of venezuelans who have crossed did brazil in search of what they can't find it home food jobs and maybe a better life. this is a city of both of these to presume on the border within a swale and that's where we find one thousand year old thomas brito and his wife sees that it for them and their newborn baby said go home is now a tent in spite of the conditions they're hopeful. it's better here than in venezuela at least here we can eat here we have possibilities you can find food and people try to help us she is only twenty one years old and having to make decisions based on survival for her family but i got this we came here to try and find a better future for our child and find. in the last few weeks about a thousand venezuelans have been arriving here every day after a tough journey across the border many are hungry. when
6:12 am
a truck carrying food arrives in the park the desperation is evident i don't want it over on the other side of town the gymnasium has been turned into a rudimentary shelter for six hundred people the conditions are prison like italy to washrooms the first thing many venezuelans do when they reach brazil is try to get a job it's the first step in trying to earn money to support their families but to work in brazil you need a permit and that process of getting one used to take weeks but now it's taking months because there are so many people in the work. they come to the police headquarters to begin the process easily and the plaza was forced to come here by herself to try to find work to support her three kids back home you know while there are no options and then as well an option is only to leave. the mayor of both the east this is a city is doing all it can but is one of brazil's smallest and poorest state
6:13 am
capitals struggling. vista is offering all services we have to venezuelans it is the city of only three hundred fifty thousand residents we don't have the capability either fire. all three infrastructure to deal with a situation like this. as more people arrive the strain on resources is likely to build but brazil at least for the time being does not plan to close its border with venezuela if it does it would extinguish something else these people say is also in short supply back home and that's hope. for peace to brazil still to come here on al-jazeera it's time to put down the weapons where the taleban says it wants to end the bloodshed in afghanistan. plus a move to redress racial disparity in land ownership in south africa how the government plans to make it work.
6:14 am
hell it hasn't rained for two days now in kentucky but unfriend the ohio river is doing flood so a satellite picture shows that running out of the way it shows rather more active weather down in california in fact this is sacramento when the sun is places and it doesn't often see snow and this isn't snow this was significant well probably more than one it very much looks like snow and you can almost treated as such but now it's thought that was big hair shot there maybe a few more in the next few hours as the storm potential and so we sat across arizona to new mexico and then we see daylight hours once again and rain is reformulate texas and spreading up through towards the ohio valley not a good sign warms and washington both together here the colors more or less gone away but we have got more winter coming in than the pacific coast i mean that's
6:15 am
a pretty good spread of what again down through the cascades and the rockies and just inland from san francisco possibly sacramento seems unlikely but this is the trouble i'm afraid that circulation not from a sheet far away from chicago suggests yet more heavy rain in the area that still flooded which is valley and then dropping back down to rock and soul more or less but more specifically into eastern texas. finalis the biggest ever democracy who dictates activists in seats of government we did the one thing we piled on this information all we really didn't want technologically challenging politics and implementing direct democracy open source code to use the freedom for one to look we are innovators we are activists we are rebel geeks madrid at this time and i'm just you know.
6:16 am
welcome back you're watching al-jazeera peter davi in doha this hour your headlines a second attempt to impose a humanitarian ceasefire on a rebel held enclave in syria is due to begin in the coming hours russia's partial truce is planned to allow aid in and get the injured out of east and close to the capital damascus first attempt on tuesday failed to stop the onslaught by government forces. one of christianity's holiest sites in jerusalem has reopened three days after the shots because of attacks protest the church of the holy several come close to over plans to impose back taxes on the church assets which
6:17 am
have now been put on hold. and u.s. media are reporting the president's close advisor and son in law jerry question has had his security clearance done graded and other white house aides without the approved clearance will no longer get top level briefings. let's get more on one of our top stories those attempts to get help to people in east and top hospitals in the rebel held enclave are struggling to cope with the number of injured especially as their own stuff a court in the firing line. my name is moloch. i've been a nurse in one of his hospitals for five years we had a very tough day at the hospital five days ago as we received so many wounded people after the barbaric shelling of the area. i finished work and left the home all of a sudden about one hundred meters from the hospital i was shocked to receive a bullet wound to my stomach i yelled out in pain and a group of colleagues rushed to help me they took me to the hospital where i was
6:18 am
treated at the same period where a few minutes before i'd been treating other wounded people but i spent the night at the hospital and the next morning an aerial raid hit the city everything shook everyone of us forgot about how pain and we eat into the emergency room with that was full of the wounded i left my bed and i went to try and help the wounded i was shocked to see one of the patients was my best friend i tried my best to calm him down as he knew well what had happened to me five days ago. well let's return to the story we tried to bring you the u.n. experts saying north korea has been sending supplies used in syria's chemical weapons program that's prompted this response from washington this is something that the united states has had concerns about for quite some time that north korea especially as north korea becomes more desperate that they look for different creative and horrific ways to try to make money to fund their criminal regime and when i say criminal regime i mean they're illegal nuclear and ballistic missile
6:19 am
programs if they are selling goods material whatever you want to call it to syria it shows the degree of any of that regime and that is exactly why we stand so firmly behind our policy of denuclearization on the part of this administration on behalf of the world. the afghan government says it will set no preconditions for peace negotiations with the taliban the announcement comes hours after the armed group said it was willing to talk to the united states to try to end the bloodshed in afghanistan suicide attacks killed close to one hundred fifty people in kabul last month thousands have died in the violence as the taliban was overthrown by a u.s. led campaign in two thousand and one the afghan government and the taliban have held direct talks just once before in twenty fifteen but they broke down almost immediately officials from their own twenty five countries the e.u. and nato are due to meet as part of the kabul process in the afghan capital on
6:20 am
weapons day president ashraf ghani is expected to map out his peace plan at the conference tony berkeley has more now from kabul. well there are two ways of looking at this one that it was an open letter which was basically an accident the omitted certain things or it was deliberate now normally when the taliban issue a letter or a statement they always say that before any direct talks happen the americans have to withdraw militarily they haven't said that this time so if it was a deliberate emission it does suggest a softening of tone from the taliban and that is quite something different it may be for several reasons you mention the conference which is happening in kabul on wednesday it also could be something to do with a statement made by as a second assistant secretary of state department for south and asian affairs alice well she said the door was always open for direct talks with the taliban so maybe this is moving things along it could also have something to do with the increased american firepower now in place in afghanistan you know that under president trump
6:21 am
the force here american forces going up from eight thousand to fourteen thousand and a month's time there's going to be another thousand combat troops who will be in the front line and that's the first time that will have happened since two thousand and eleven and of course on top of that you've got increased american aerial power that's being brought to bear the american bombs have been falling they say they've been successful they're pushing the taliban back from areas that's not what the taliban say they say they still control up to seventy percent of the rural areas but still there is fire power being brought to bear south africa's parliament has passed a motion allowing the government to take private land without compensation the plan was put forward by the left wing economic freedom fighters party and supported by the ruling a.n.c. the new president several roma posts has promised to speed up the transfer of land to black south africans land ownership remains a major issue more than two decades after the end of apartheid malcolm webb has
6:22 am
more now from johannesburg. ever since new and see came to power in nine hundred ninety four politicians have promised land reform and redistribution they've had policies and programs to do so but progress has been slow and it still remains that in south africa around three courses of the land belongs to the white minority a lot of people say that the reason progress has been so slow is because a lack of political will from the top of the a.n.c. and also allegations of corruption and landry's redistribution but julius malema the leader of the breakaway opposition economic freedom fighters party has been saying that the problem needs to be tackled by changing the constitution to allow the government to expropriate land without compensation and so he made the case to parliament to make to pass a motion to make that constitutional change we must ensure that we will be stored for our people without compensating the criminals who stole our land.
6:23 am
to protect these crimes. are to stop crime because those who protect a crime are criminals themselves the motion was part of the significant majority about two hundred forty in favor and about eighty voted against this is because ruling a.n.c. party voted with the economic freedom fighters in recent years as the a.n.c. popularity is declined their rhetoric has got even tougher on land reform they used to object to expropriation without compensation but this time they joined us in a move that will begin the process of constitutional change so by the time that's made it will take months we don't know who will be in power there's an election next year we don't know to what extent they will use this policy to bring about radical lunch change but it's something generally that may be popular with voters but on popular with investors. public hearing the service started into atrocities
