out on. meet the nobel peace laureate taking his mission against child labor to a new audience. the israeli army is starting to destroy tunnels built under its border with lebanon israeli commanders say the am is to expose and forth in their words cross border attacks by the hezbollah into northern israel israel's been boosting defenses along an eleven kilometer stretch of the border for the last three years scott live now to natasha the name in west jerusalem so an attack what more are hearing about. hesam it's believed that this operation by the israeli military is the first of its kind along the northern border and against hezbollah since two thousand and six
11:02 am
that's when israel fought a war with hezbollah and there's been what i would call a tense detente israeli spokespeople are saying that these tunnels could be a violation of a un resolution signed in two thousand and six that prohibits hezbollah from operating along that northern border and amassing weapons this operation began last night it's been dubbed north shield and as you mentioned the israeli military is in the process of destroying these tunnels that it's discovered and it have to thwart any kind of a an attack they've erected walls rock barriers demolished land in the area to prohibit hezbollah for getting it from getting any kind of military advantage as far as we know people in the area have not been given any specific instructions or warning so it appears if you live in that along the border area of israel it sort
11:03 am
of business as usual the israeli military though is taking a harsh stant stance at least a verbal e a spokesman is saying that we see that hezbollah activities as a flagrant and blatant violation of israeli authority it's worth noting that these operations are still confined within israeli territory and for that reason it's hoped that there won't be any kind of escalation with hezbollah the conventional wisdom is that hezbollah is loath to have any kind of military confrontation with israel at this time after years of its attention and resources being diverted to the war in syria and did it sasha what can we read into the timing of these soft ration. well we do know that last evening prime minister benjamin netanyahu flew to brussels to speak with u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh the language coming out of that meeting again pretty
11:04 am
harsh give you a quote iran's aggression and its secondary growth in the north alluding to hezbollah are issues that the pair said they would be addressing in the coming months and the timing is very significant according to many analysts here in israel on sunday i reported that for the third time this year israeli police are recommending that netanyahu be indicted as part of a wide ranging corruption scandal that's been plaguing him and his wife since last year and the charges range from bribery to extracting favors or doling out favors rather to companies in exchange for favorable coverage in the media netanyahu calls this a witch hunt and has a seriously denied any wrongdoing but inless think that despite his popularity in israel remaining pretty high throughout the year israelis view him for one as kind of a paragon of security that he might be already thinking about his political future
11:05 am
he is a shrewd four time prime minister he hopes to make that a five term prime minister when elections are slated to be held in november of next year but the thinking among some analysts is that he might hold a snap election to capitalize on the goodwill of israelis and that the timing of this operation might simply be a means to divert attention away from what appears to be his mounting legal woes at home or an attention thanks to them until the name in west jerusalem. other director of the cia will brief u.s. senate u.s. senate leaders on the killing of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi on tuesday june haskell's absence from a trumpet ministration briefing on u.s. relations with saudi arabia last week sparked controversy for shows he was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul in october cia assessment say the crown prince mohammed bin sandman ordered the operation john hendren has more from
11:06 am
washington. cia director gina haskell will speak to members of the u.s. senate about the murder of jamal khashoggi that is after she did not appear last week when the secretary of state and secretary of defense held a closed door briefing with members of the senate several members of the senate afterwards republicans and democrats alike said they were unsatisfied and an persuaded by what they heard in that room afterward madison pompei oh that is jim that is the defense secretary and mike pompei of the secretary of state came out and said there was no smoking gun that links the crown prince of saudi arabia mohammed bin some on to the killing of chris shoji that is despite reports that the cia has concluded with a high level of confidence that the crown prince did in fact order that killing so members of the senate were dissatisfied they said they wanted to hear from tina haskell the cia director who actually flew to is stand tall and listened to the
11:07 am
tapes of that killing that the turkish government provided so they believe she will have more information and that she will be more frank with them so they passed a measure that would lead to a vote later on invoking the war powers act that would allow the senate to cut off u.s. aid to the saudi war in yemen that would be an extreme step and it's very far from being ultimately passed but the threat of that seems to be what is motivating the trumpet ministration to make casper available to speak to members of the senate that is likely to be a closed door briefing as the briefing was last week but members of the senate and administration officials are likely to speak about it afterwards so i think we are likely to know what was said in that room. dozens of wounded who the fighters have arrived in oman after they were allowed to leave yemen for medical treatment evacuation was a condition sent by the rebels to the saudi u.n. eco nation before u.n. back talks in sweden later this week the conflict which erupted in twenty fifteen
11:08 am
has brought yemen to the brink of famine. we hope that very soon we will be able to strike talks. among the parties to that and to assist that process forward mr griffiths is in sanaa right now we will see when we can announce the dates for talks but we are hopeful that it will happen in fairly short course but we need a number of conditions to be exactly right before we can before we can settle that i'm hammered into haiti is a member of the political bureau he explains how the evacuation agreement came about. how he. talks about this deal have started months or a year ago we offered to the muted to a deal to release or hostages and detainees in exchange for releasing prisoners and
11:09 am
hostages at the other side and this is because there are a source of pain and suffering to their families as the war has been going on for a long time and there is no justification for not releasing them however no agreement was reached and told two to three days ago at the beginning we signed the deal in the you in envoy was able to convince the other side to sign the agreement . a sri lankan supremes court has begun hearing a case and it reversing the president's decision to dissolve parliament and course snap elections my policy is seen as move has been blocked until the case is heard it is the latest development in a political crisis that has gripped the country since late october now for nando's has more from outside sri lanka's courts in colombo. a seven judge bench of the supreme court headed by the chief justice is sitting in the supreme court of the building you see behind me looking into a series of fundamental rights petitions now those petitions are challenging
11:10 am
president by three policies saying there's authority to dissolve parliament the decision he took to dissolve the parliament by way of an extraordinary gaz a of the point that the petitioners are making is that the constitution of this country is following the nineteenth amendment incidentally brought in by the serious in the government that it does not allow the president to dissolve parliament less than four and a half years into its term at the point that presidents are saying the dissolve parliament it had over a year to go to reach that time limit now the president has repeatedly said that he has acted in accordance with the constitution in accordance with the law but the supreme court initially stated the dissolution of parliament which is why parliament continues to function until it finishes these hearings starting today for three days at the end of which we will hear their decision on president seriously and his decision to dissolve parliament now another reason that all eyes on the court complex today in the rajapaksa was restrained by the court of appeal
11:11 am
guess today again by a writ petition by hundred twenty two members of parliament mainly from the vicar missing a faction saying that he has no authority to hold the office of prime minister and neither does his cabinet ministers and deputy ministers he has said he will appeal the supreme court to set aside that injunction so a lot happening at supreme court today and over the days to come ukraine's armed forces have launched military drills near the russian border. the exercises following last week's confrontation in the black sea russian warships opened fire and three ukrainian navy boats twenty four crew were taken prisoner clash was near the disputed crimea region which russian troops and next from ukraine four years ago. all right still ahead on i just you know when we come back thousands of central americans stuck on the us mexico border they're growing

11:13 am
the stock will be at two on a wednesday or of that more or less in the east will be snow so very wintery for us for the west is very different here we've got an area of low pressure that's pushing its way in a mass dragging in some very mild s. and london will actually get up to thirteen degrees but it will feel rather wet as well and it will be windy as well during the day before the towards the south and for some of us here we've also seen a fair amount of wet weather recently to all thanks to the swirling mass here now we've got that other one this chasing it as well so across the north coast of libya and into egypt there's going to be a good deal of cloud at times today and a few showers as well and those are likely to stick around as we head through wednesday but the west is very different is largely fine and dry and the temperatures not too bad at all we're looking at twenty two in robots much of what we're expecting in. the with sponsored body counts on these. well the on line for you looking at wildlife and how the solutions come together to

11:16 am
substance the main point here is that this you can have the at this two ways it's the trump administration just as our colleague in washington proved an excellent briefing said no it's the from administration backing water or or trying to get out from some of the pressure that it is now under from the congress and it is congress's effort to reassert its part prerogatives that's that's really the news here with trump's continuing to try to carry the water for him have been some if trump can bury it he will clearly what he's doing is trying to relieve the pressure on him from congress with gestures. his standard pattern is to say to deny and then to make a cosmetic change or backing down to that and to change the subject and then to move on so he will do what he can to maintain his. shockingly intimate relationship
11:17 am
and solomon while congress may pressure him son some more but the advantage in foreign policy always rests with the executive the speaker of the u.k. house of commons says the government may be in contempt of parliament two recent government is not publishing the full legal advice it has received on its bragg's it deal with the european union six opposition parties are launching proceedings against the decision a baka as moral from month. there is just over a week to go until m.p.'s decide whether to accept or reject the british government's plans but before all of that happens the government could face a major hurdle a possible embarrassment for the government the opposition labor party has joined forces with other smaller parties accusing the british government of being in contempt of parliamentary protocol by failing to share all of their legal advice that the british government received from its legal advisor the attorney general
11:18 am
geoffrey cogs when it came to coming up with its plan in its entirety what does the government even need to share this information with parliament well because m.p.'s voted overwhelmingly to demand that the government do precisely that to allow m.p.'s to make the right decision when it comes to the vote next week but only one of the day the attorney general made a very rare appearance here at parliament defending his actions in not sharing all of this information with employees because he said that there was some very sensitive information in that advice that that was not in the public interest he fiercely defended his actions in front of m.p.'s here. i am convinced that in order to disclose any advice that mine to be given would be fundamentally contrary to the interests of this country. it's no use pain and shouting our members are busy but what i am trying to do these are good cop greek interests.

time. anybody's time grew up. of some of the strongest opponents to the bronx deal come from northern ireland's democratic unionist party it's supposed to be in a loose coalition with the prime minister's conservatives but it now says the agreement could cause the breakup of the united kingdom largely reports from belfast. in the process to loyalist parts of belfast their loyalty is unquestioned country first the four corners of the u.k. in divisible their problem with the brics a deal is that in theory it could lead to a future trade agreements pushing northern ireland closer to the e.u. than the rest of the u.k. that in turn leads to the inconceivable thoughts that northern ireland could be unified with the republic of ireland our whole purpose of union our system and take
11:20 am
on the link with the union we fail lots of the best interests of northern ireland long term and it is an r.d.m. where unionists we we're british were all an irish and therefore i'm nothing the texas side of the united kingdom as extremely honesty about i'm on suffering for a virtual deal this fall but the politicians who represent these people in parliament of the democratic unionists by the prime minister to prop up the governments after she failed to win a majority in last year's election they said they would support but they don't anymore they have made it plain they will vote her deal down the simple message go back to. brussels and try again we try to be very clear we will not support dana shouldn't be a choice between a day are no day we believe that's and then make sure the interests of not just the united kingdom but also the entire of the your opinion and try to get a day what we're trying to said everybody is sensible heads should prevail this
11:21 am
isn't good enough it's not just us saying that it's many many other people across other political parties as well the state isn't good enough both sides need to get together in terms the european union the united kingdom and get a sensible day in the works for both of us. it will demonstrate starkly the mess the prime minister is in she can't even rely on politicians who are supposed to back inside her own government to reason lays in a sales pitch deal with the european union is that it's a compromise it must be perfect but it's designed to leave the european union while bringing together a basically divided united kingdom but this constituency says it will never compromise on its core belief in the sanctity of the u.k. and it is prepared to bring down the deal. the prime minister describes himself as a unionist to the call but she is now in a fight with her own side and then not the kind of people to back down lawrence leigh al-jazeera belfast. i'm escrows new president under ice manuel lopez obrador
