to turn down the chance to make some quick money when the opportunity presented itself but it landed him in prison. in. a palestinian living in israel rented the 2nd floor of my shop he brought soil seeds water tanks everything needed he told me all the medical plant and it takes a month to grow and i would get 10000 dollars in exchange i don't have to do anything i barely have any work i don't have a permit to work in israel so i accept. $2500.00 plants were found on the upper floor of his family business now he's facing up to 15 years behind bars after being charged with growing cannabis plants and drug trafficking. police say that illegal truck plantations have been spreading across the occupied west bank ever since it became more difficult to import the drugs through dishonor. brigade you have the likely we believe is due to an increase in demand in israel where mary who is
11:12 am
tolerated for recreational use but production is illegal. but me explain over the past 4 or 5 years there's been this trend to plant drugs like this in the west bank especially synthetic cannabis known as hydro it's this one here they grow this and greenhouses are in secret labs at home they started when it became more difficult to traffic from sinai drug rates were stepped up by 30 percent in the occupied west bank last year about $33000.00 plants were seeds that's with an estimated market value of $7000000.00. it was the prospect of getting some of that cash that pushed some years to accept an offer to grow the plant 31 he's unemployed and has 5 children to feed. and i didn't produce for the local market it was all for export but the seeds come from israel to the bedouin they put them here at someone's place for

a certain period of time depending on the type they could take 2 to 5 months to make sure i planted them in a valley which is hard to access authorities suspect there are many more money $1.00 of fields out there but most would be in the so-called area c. which represents about 60 percent of the west bank but palestinian police are not allowed to operate there without prior consent from israel making it more likely that illegal drug production will continue to increase as the economic situation among palestinians continues to deteriorate but at the al-jazeera in the occupied west bank. britain's prime minister tourism a is resisting calls to resign after her latest brags a plan backfired maize new pitch failed to win over both the opposition and many in her own party on a 1st senior cabinet ministers the leader of the house of commons andrea led some resigned after saying she doesn't believe the new proposals can deliver briggs's the revised plan including the possible vote on whether to hold
11:14 am
a 2nd briggs's referendum once the prime minister's legislation passes its 1st stage if we are going to deliver bracks it in this parliament we are going to have to pass a withdrawal agreement and we will not do so without holding focus on the issues that have divided us the most that includes votes on customs arrangements and on a 2nd referendum we can pretend otherwise and carry on arguing and getting nowhere but in the end our job in this house is to take decisions not to duck them so i will push those decisions to this house because that is my duty because it is the only way that we can deliver bricks it one hour from general hole in london. the reason may is a prime minister under siege it's not just the opposition who want to see her go to court to resign it is her own party her own m.p.'s her own cabinet indeed one of them one of those cabinet ministers has resigned and relents and the leader of the
11:15 am
house of commons say you no longer believe that a reserve base approach can deliver on the brakes referendum well the reason may is not going to resign tonight as a wave of rumors suggested she might she will we're told be in her constituency on thursday as britain votes in e.u. parliamentary elections and then on friday we're told to be meeting brady the influential chairman of the $122.00 committee that's the conservative party committee of backbench m.p.'s it's sort of he will lay out for her just how little support she has just how perilous her position has become a prime minister now with both cabinet and her own m.p.'s gunning against her cabinet members wanting her to pull the vote all together into her deal a 4th vote for the 1st week of june there are happy about concessions she's made but they say went beyond any agreement they had with her and her own m.p.'s appear ready to change the rules of the $22.00 to allow another vote of no confidence you'll recall she survived narrowly
11:16 am
a vote of no confidence by her own m.p.'s in december it's unlikely she would survive one now the options for to reason may appear extremely limited either wait for the axe to fall or give a more dignified resignation at the podium and that podium omened could well come as soon as friday or in the 1st week of june after next week's parliamentary recess the ongoing uncertainty over briggs's has been blamed for the collapse of british steel the u.k.'s 2nd largest steelmaker its last 3 reports thousands of jobs are at risk. exactly a year ago british steel produced this corporate film glamorizing what goes on inside its plants in scum. high quality tailored manufacturing the sort of thing the u.k. used to be feigned for all over the world. one year on the accountants of moved in british steel has collapsed putting some $25000.00 jobs in direct jeopardy the
11:17 am
government it seems was unwilling to provide just $30000000.00 pounds or $40000000.00 to keep it afloat the opposition cannot believe it also mr speaker want to express on behalf of the labor party might outrage at the government again failed our steel industry putting 5000 jobs at risk in british steel 20000 more in the supply chain this government has failed those people the government will work closely with the official receiver and prospective new owners to achieve the best possible outcome for the sites the government has provided and indemnity to the official received who is now responsible for the operations we will take every possible step to ensure that these vital operations can continue the irony isn't lost on anyone that the news of the demise of british steel comes one day before european elections in which the conservative party is expected to receive a thrashing and the story of british steel plays into a much wider debate about brics it and the future of british manufacturing. it has
11:18 am
been blamed in parts for the demise of british steel just like honda decision to close its car factory in the west of england it's widely thought the so-called hard bricks it would lead to the closure of nice sand in northeastern england as well to many voters the point of the exercise was to get politicians to pay more attention to their communities it's not happening the reality is and it's an uncomfortable truth is that we wouldn't be having these difficulties in the way in which they're presenting themselves this week if it wasn't for the decision to leave the european union perhaps the most startling statistic around british steel is that over the last 2 years alone china produced more steel than the u.k. has done since the industrial revolution in the 19th century. maybe politicians think it isn't worth trying anymore but they don't have any other alternatives the people in scum fulp it's difficult to explain a situation where the government can find 5000000000 dollars to renovate the parliament building and another 5000000000 to protect the country against the worst
11:19 am

11:25 am
resolved in some way that libya could be facing a very long and bloody war while france's official position in libya is that it backs the u.n. peace process but there are some analysts and experts over the years that have said that paris is supporting. and france has admitted in the past that it is given a certain amount of what they called technical know just tickle support so i have to what paris says is that he is a useful ally in eastern libya in the fight against armed groups including i saw what some say is that if you want to be considered as an honest broker a mediator as the french president does then it's of course very problematic if you are perceived to be supporting one side to the detriment of the other in northwestern syria rebels launched a counterattack against pro-government forces fighting has been intensifying in the area since last month and the u.s. says it's concerned that chemical weapons used to have
