things because they have essentially they being the saudis destroyed the gulf cooperation council it's a paper organization now it never was for middle but now it's almost nothing because of this bitter fight within the ranks of its own members this is not a way to assure security in the gulf and it's not a way to present iran with a solid front from as it were the other side of the ocean whether this could be a 1st step towards repro small is unclear but the immediate effect of cattle is involvement here could result in a broader debate over relations with iran andrew simmons al-jazeera. time for a short break here al-jazeera when we come back a search is under way in the dunny of the 19 missing people after a tourist boat sinks in a hungry killing at least 7 more in that stay with us. hello

life to conflict on al-jazeera. welcome back to the top stories here on the al-jazeera israel will hold a 2nd election this year the prime minister benjamin netanyahu failed to form a coalition government it happened just 7 weeks after he claimed victory in parliamentary elections. and netanya i was insisting that the political situation will not interfere with a u.s. peace plan for palestine and israel has just met senior white house adviser who's touring the region to gain support for the initiative. has to be on the agenda 3 summits in saudi arabia and leaders in the gulf cooperation council and the arab league gathering in mecca later on thursday let's bring in marwan bashara is
1:05 am
al-jazeera senior political analyst and joins us live now from london marwan let's talk 1st about qatar's involvement in these saudi conferences how significant is it that the qatari prime minister's been invited and what role is qatar like it's a play. you know it's significant this is the 2nd time they have been invited to accept at this time. and clearly there is something positive in there but of course it remains to be seen after tomorrow night if there are by that the relations about it that are all meetings going on on the sidelines and the bloc of the country has decided to take some positive steps towards cutter because after all they are the ones will manufacture the crisis and for the life of me 2 years later i still can't figure out why would be why would someone take such a short sighted step against apartheid not our knowledge i it within the gulf region when all of these crises are escalating in the region be that as it may it's
1:06 am
important for the gulf regional council in particular because you know this is a very small cohesive. regional council that's actually worked more or less ok since the 1980 and it's split down down the middle since saudi arabia carried its actions against got there along with the united arab emirates somebody rain and now that it all. basically blew up in their faces and and and the blowback you know as a humiliated them clearly they're trying to extend some hands to what's got out of the question is what happens after that qatar is not going to go down the road to escape inflation or that against iran or escalating the war in yemen because saudi arabia ask so i think this has to be or will be on the basis of new conditions in the relations within the gulf cooperation council and that's an interesting point
1:07 am
you make model because the blockade on qatar has thrown as you say the govt arab states into disarray and and these meetings in saudi arabia are meant to find some kind of consensus on iran so how do you see this playing out in terms of unity and consensus. it depends on saudi arabia because so you're a bit over the last 3 years have carried so many divisive policies opened so many fronts escalated so many conflicts whether it is in yemen in the gulf against iran against qatar against even its own partner the prime minister of lebanon in tripoli in libya if it is going on going to they against turkey you know a sunni a stomach ally as it were against its own not partners for within the kingdom so clearly saudi arabia has taken or has chewed more than it could swallow over the last 3 years because of basically the reckless policies of its crown prince now if
1:08 am
you know it it we will see whether the king has basically understood the blowback from all these divisive it's good actually policies and whether something new is in the in is on the horizon if there is he's going to see that there are a lot of partners qatar included within the region among the arabs among even the muslim partners that will be happy if so that it will deescalate in yemen will deescalate and the gulf and so on so forth on a final quick thoughts on recent developments in israel benjamin netanyahu as we now know has failed to form a coalition government and now faces fresh elections but i mean how much does this complicate jabbered cushion his plans for his deal of the center i mean the palestinians say look we won't be attending this conference in bahrain and netanyahu is political survival is now at stake. you know what amazes me is that every time an israeli prime minister fails it would be for corruption
1:09 am
sexual harassment of some sort or something of religious secular nature and fact most of them were for religious secular nature they don't happen because of the occupation because of the blowback because of the various wars that took place between israel and snipers the ongoing conflict with the palestinians so here we have once again the prime minister in israel because of a secular religious issue among potential partners is going diving in again to new elections and that will set back whatever coming out of washington the so-called date of the century the stab of the century as the palestinians would refer to it clearly for many it was born dead and now more and more obstacles are in the way i think going to the head in and then of the month for somewhat shop on some initiative that no one knows what it is it's doesn't spell well for anyone involved
1:10 am

1:22 am
supplies to the habitat damage caused by displacement. has devastating consequences. not sunni manmade infrastructure has but also natural ecosystems are destroyed and i'm a lives lost as well as human. but even amidst the most vicious struggles through people fighting to protect the world we live in and recover what was lost. i'm tanya a sheet and bangladesh in the world's largest refugee camps where people are working to co-exist with the elephants for which this region is home and i'm happy with all love and on we're group of scientists is rebuilding a seed bank that was displaced by the war in syria. in august 2017 a brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing began in myanmar. the military and buddhist
1:23 am
radicals claimed the lives of more than $6000.00 in a single month. fearing death thousands more fled the country for the 4th of bangladesh. the scale of the exodus was enormous. today they are still unable to return home. there are over 1200000 rohingya refugees living inside of the falling cap the bottom of. this is now the biggest settlements of refugees in the world. many of them don't have access to clean water sanitation or even electricity. but after they arrived the survivors faced a new threat while i was rampaging through count. i'm meeting on one about who witnessed an initial episode firsthand it came from there we did. that looked and came to
1:24 am
a cost you know from the jungle over that way by directly to her heart and started feeding her heart with it but it struck. this was no one not only construct repeatedly throughout the camp killing 13 people in the space of 5 months. can you tell me a little bit about what happened the 1st and last one of them other side of her just sort of the body was just built on her own to hold on to the little one little bit of a little bit a little loose out of the would you what happened after that that i took a little bit of that i will be out of you in wimbledon or the us in the morning a lot of you only knew go down ahead in a sort of fairness i should learn but i didn't hear whoa hold on a mother that the doctor one of the mothers i said to him as if it had told the family did was i love you i got lost in his official mind what okun is all about budget bloom is about i want. to know a lot. more about how to google the girls or whatever you will hold over here boy
1:25 am
this is the movie. the attack sparked an investigation into what was going on. recchi but i mean from the international union for conservation of nature believes the rapid expansion of the settlement had a profound impact on the natural environment this is the edge of the camp of the cave right here as this is where the forest began yes what's been going on was the cause behind all of these that you see on all camps they used to be forest they the seems to be an elephant have habitat. the camp expanded at an astonishing rate over $1500.00 hectares of forests were cleared to accommodate the influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees. but nobody realised the devastating impact this would have the growing camps severed a vital lifeline for some of bangladesh's last remaining wild elephants blocking
1:26 am
a herd of 40 from their only path to essential grazing ground. just over there is there is a space we call the elephant now the since the camp is completely blocking that coded door elephant cannot pass through this have it's in search of its shelter in search of his food essential fizz migration path elephants was trying to come inside the camp elephant came so many times and 13 you know simple life force and lost. and elephant is not necessarily a violent mammal it's very intelligent understands it has uses emotions and is show us that is loss is habitat is desperate through this animal migration. it's in their d.n.a. elephant is a genetic memory is it didn't know exactly where they have been growing where they have been roaming generation after generation that they'd the same part. the elephants of bangladesh are critically endangered there are just $268.00 left and
1:27 am
they're increasingly under threat. $15000.00 hectares of land are already deforested in the country every year and this camp only adds to the problem. to help me understand what the elephants are up against i've hired a local guy. so the man in front of me. his name means golden boy and he's our tracker for the day i think we're going to have. it's not long before we find clues that we're on the right path. that out that is if we're not there boggling going to face is that your thought bungalow going to feel that with color than that i would thought i would have basic i like that i think we've been growing is that. we find evidence of hungry elephants everywhere we are here just to take our system to the skies like the elephant
1:28 am
whisperer. ready tells me that by the end of the summer much of the elephants food here will be gone. then they face a nightmare scenario attempt to migrate through the camp to me in march in search of fresh vegetation or risk running out of food. as is your face when they deny me guess if they. were following the actual footsteps of the elephants. elephants have walked along this path every season for thousands of years i'm feeling really excited i wonder for actually going to encounter some elephants were being told that just a few steps away that they're there then against the odds a moment i can't believe. a majestic elephant standing proud on the horizon. it's just i think i have experience i've never seen an elephant like my own my 1st time.
1:29 am
it looks so peaceful in its natural habitat it's just really crazy to think that before the caps were put in place that this is what it was a large for with animals roaming about and now there's a human made crisis at play with sprawling refugee camps and it's just a very sad situation. but a select band of refugees is working to solve the problem with the support of the international union for conservation of nature they're formed a group dedicated to safety shepherding elephants from the camp. they call themselves the toughest course. central to their strategy are $94.00 watchtowers which they built around the camp perimeter. they are manned by a team of over 500 brave refugees ready to intervene and protect both the people
1:30 am
and. i'm heading up for a bird's eye view. of what. ok so what's going on there simulating what actually happens when an elephant comes and you see the yellow shirts yeah. possibles members so they are using the bible so they know. how to respond and they want to form a human shield and slowly moves towards the listening to the telephone understands this danger i have. down on the ground it's clear how committed the tusk or sorry. i don't make an issue of training go to the right you know i stand. by the how do i see me i don't have the right there so i thought it was. quite loud and scary i think that would certainly show an elephant
1:31 am
off. since the times 1st started there has been no loss of life here despite 45 incursions by oliphant's it's an effective temporary solution until a longer term plan is made for managing the animals migration. the tusk force has motivated the community with over 500 people signing up to join and has supporters throughout the camp. what are you doing over here when is this. going to happen. i think all these different patterns and colors seems like it's a lot of work to do why go through all this trouble to do it right out of the holocaust my bible had to be. one on one where the only one with a machine a 3rd of. the death of my body which. only medically i mean anybody
1:32 am
do you feel that there's more danger living on the edge of the forest versus people who live in the interior of the camp. without having to get out that i both saw what. i thought of philip as not on the good of. the man and his on with. his only i've been lucky and. not only do people feel more secure they are also more sensitive to the elephant situation saving the animals is now even part of the school's curriculum. you know what you're. doing. the objective is not to build on this momentum. recchi was already taking steps to find a permanent solution to the problem beginning with an in-depth scientific study of the elephants migratory habit. we are planning to put radio collars on the elephant
1:33 am
this will give us a valuable data valuable science to have a better management of the whole situation once the exact migration route is no the goal is to clear a path for the elephants so that they can migrate unhindered once again of course we want to open the door to door astronauts possible that are so few of the issues that we need to consider before doing that it will take about $100000.00 people going to people to move somewhere else that would be an immense logistical challenge but as human refugees continue to resettle around the world full moves are needed to reduce the impact on local animal populations what i've seen here gives me hope that animals do not always need to be victims of conflict and that a peaceful coexistence is possible. there are over 40 armed conflict.
