3:47 pm
the next couple of days here enough to across southern parts of the peninsula least through thursday friday maybe not quite as bad but also a little bit of wet weather to southern parts of south africa right over the next dials cloud and rain writing of just making its way across the western cape flats in the southern us ago for friday to the north of that is fine and dry. where were you when this idea popped into it when they're on line it's undoubtedly chief cause of poverty inequality in our society today or if you join the sunset criminal justice system is dysfunctional right now this is a dialogue what does it feel like bring you have to go back for the first time everyone has a voice and allow refugees to be the speakers for a change joining us. on our.
3:48 pm
you stand the differences. and the similarities of cultures across the world. al-jazeera. they took us down to the business of protection rush hour on the summit tries to put the trunk show down behind. low on down jordan this is al jazeera from doha also coming up hitting the back of the drones near its border israel says it's fired missiles into syria. the pressure starting to tell its oil imports as the u.s.
3:49 pm
intensified its bid to isolate iraq. i just extra special for croatia nation of just four million. and hence for its first woke up one. nato leaders are gathering again in brussels right now hoping to put the disagreements of day one behind the. new sessions about to begin with ending the war in afghanistan and security concerns in ukraine top of the agenda day one have been dominated by donald trump's demands for higher military spending and sharp criticism of germany well our diplomatic editor james bays joins us live now from brussels so james are world leaders still reeling from donald trump's prickly comments yesterday i think they are because those comments are continuing on twitter when we finally saw the meeting with chancellor merkel it
3:50 pm
was more conciliatory language from the president but since then he's been attacking her in germany again on twitter until one am in the morning here in brussels and back on twitter just a few hours later when he woke up tweeting that germany having that pipeline with russia and buying gas was inappropriate when it was relying he said on america's protection and again he's been talking about raising the amount that nato countries spend all their defense there's currently a two percent of gross domestic product that's the aim for all nato countries he wants that lifted to four percent an incredible lift which would mean doubling or tripling the size of most european armies and james what else is on the agenda for today then. well interesting of course that president trump after he goes from here
3:51 pm
to the u.k. is going to helsinki to meet glad to be a putin because some of the countries that are somewhat fearful of russia ukraine and georgia are meeting their partner countries of nato and i think they'll be making their case about their concerns about russia and the other thing that's on the agenda is afghanistan now that is a place where the violence continues ever since the u.s. is involvement in two thousand and one there now are about twenty four thousand nato and u.s. troops in afghanistan general john nicholson is about to end his romney's been the longest serving commander in afghanistan and there's talk that the white house with a new commander coming in may start a review of what to do in afghanistan nato says it remains committed in its worth reminding you as president trump complains about nato since two thousand and one
3:52 pm
that in about three thousand five hundred u.s. and nato troops have been killed in afghanistan over that number over one thousand one hundred one not americans they were from other nato countries all right james bays there in brussels james thank you well nato may be trying to move on but the comments by donald trump calling germany a captive of russia have caused quite a stir in the u.s. democrats there been calling president trump and then bassman for criticizing key allies a white house correspondent kimberly hellcat has more. as president donald trump chastise u.s. allies in brussels over trade policy and defense spending u.s. lawmakers here in the united states are underscoring their support for the transatlantic alliance in the republican controlled senate as well as the house of representatives the lawmakers there have approved a non-binding measure that affirms support for nato but democrats in both chambers
3:53 pm
are going a step further you can donald trump for criticizing allies putting relationships at risk i said drive to the view that we should not be criticizing our president was overseas but let me say a couple of things nato is indispensable i'm very concerned that we have iraq maybe with nato. and then some kind of civil authority maybe. and it works against our people anderson this statement would be. ostriches leave laughable if it were not so serious that germany has stood by our side. given the lines and sacrificed resources for us in. wars that we continue to fight. this kind of reference absolutely despicable now many members of congress believe that president trump is right to point out that some of nato members are not hearing to their security
3:54 pm
commitments but at the same time it is the rhetoric that is concerning both democrats and republicans particularly when there is a singling out of a key u.s. ally like germany in fact some democratic members of congress saying that the u.s. president is not only embarrassing the united states calling his behavior a disgrace israel says it's talked to three syrian army positions off the drum crossed into its territory the missiles on. wants them to connect for a province that's near the occupied golan heights where syrian state media says the rockets were intercepted by air defense systems near the town of hadera and caused little damage and more rebel factions in nearby dead province have signed up to a surrender deal with the government groups which are held out in the city will hand over their weapons and be given the option of safe passage to the north of syria let's talk live now to sen she joins us from the lebanese capital beirut zana
3:55 pm
so what more can you tell us about these israeli claims they've hit targets inside syria. well the israeli military acknowledging that they were responsible for targeting three syrian army positions in a province overnight saying that it was in retaliation for the entering of a syrian thrown into its airspace a few hours earlier this is not the first incident of its kind there has been cross border violence in the past israel has hit syrian army positions israel has hit what it says are positions belonging to hezbollah in syria as well as iranian targets in syria but the timing of the latest incident is interesting it coincided with israeli prime minister not playing out whose visit to moscow his third in six months syria topping the agenda we know what israel wants israel wants russia to rein in iran it doesn't want iran to have a base in syria once the runyon troops to leave syria all together it's not clear if russia is able or willing to do that but what is clear is that there is some
3:56 pm
sort of an agreement to keep iranian troops and iranian backed troops away from the israeli occupied golan heights border and the timing is interesting why because the syrian army is gearing up for an offensive to retake rebel controlled areas near is our borders so so far it seems that israel is ready to accept the return of syrian army troops along the border with the golan heights but on one condition and that is they need to respect the buffer zone the demilitarized zone in the area but clearly the issue of iranian presence in syria has not been solved at least for the israeli side i'm saying that just bring us up to date now with the latest on the fighting in. well much of their off province is now in the hands of the governments many rebel factions have surrendered over recent days handing over their heavy weapons and what we've seen is either russian military police entering these towns and villages or the syrian or syrian government forces but there is
3:57 pm
