12:10 am
against this is an area that is surrounded by many mountains and it has been used by aczel to stage an insurgency so this base is particularly important for those operations and this particular attack is just one in a series of several such incidents over the past month or so in fact there have been a statement issued by the u.s. on the semper 7 basically listing the attacks and also unusually attribute in responsibility for some of these attacks a particular one such attack. took a type as ball which is an iranian backed armed group now there was another attack on december 9th on another military base near baghdad airport which also co houses u.s. forces which resulted in the injuries of 6 iraqi soldiers and following that particular attack secretary of state issued a very strong statement basically warning iran to not attack u.s.
12:11 am
forces as well as its allies here in iraq or quote those actions would be answered with a decisive u.s. response or not we actually have to casualties in another such attack it remains to be seen how the u.s. will react. meanwhile iraq's president has been blamed for causing a political standoff after he refused to approve the nomination of assad donny as prime minister groups backed by iran say president barham salih is serving the interests of washington and aims to bring the country into chaos it comes as anti-government protesters gathered in baghdad where trading demands for an independent prime minister more than $450.00 people have been killed since protests broke out almost 3 months ago and we want an obvious prime minister independent no one citizenship we want to join the an iraqi official who can feel our pain who can relate to us someone who doesn't have any loyalty to others. rocky city of najaf is home to the grand ayatollah ali al sistani the highest shia religious authority in
12:12 am
the country since anti-government protests began in october he has delivered some sharp criticism of the government's handling of the crisis during his weekly friday sermons but this week he decided to no longer get involved in iraq ie politics his somalia fault and again reporting from natural gas. as iraq slips deeper into political crisis the one man iraq has looked to for guidance is silent grand ayatollah ali al sistani is friday's sermon delivered through his representative usually includes comments on political matters closely watched in streets and halls of government alike this week the cleric announced he'd no longer speak on political issues and he passed a cryptic message to iraq's politicians explaining why. if you read history you'll find that the problem is not with the people who have wisdom and intellect but with those who don't listen to those who have wisdom and intellect.
12:13 am
clerics close to stanley say his silence is a show of dismay that iraq's politicians are not heeding his advice to start his reclusion comes at a critical time on thursday president barham saleh said he would rather resign than appoint the nominee for prime minister danny seen as representing the status quo. what is the point of talking on political issues we are repeating the same points over and over again if they want to get advice they'll find in previous speeches. it's not the 1st time sistan has done this he stopped making political speeches temporarily in 201320162 put pressure on political leaders and. when he ponderous points of record progress towards early elections based on the priestly past when he finds little response he resumed giving political price.
12:14 am
stanny may have also grown tired of his words being used to meet political ends for political forces does take the steps to sistani and interpret them according to their interest. not just has seen some of the worst violence since demonstrations began here 2 protesters have set up camp in the central square determined to stay until their demands are met they feel encouraged by cystitis support but unless there is a complete overhaul of the political system they doubt that early elections a priority for system will bring meaningful change. the choice made by the politicians we want prime minister and a president to be elected by the people the grand ayatollah ali al assad has said and boersma seen as necessary for the nomination of a new prime minister and his the social to no longer comment on political developments is regarded as pressuring political parties to choose someone protesters can separate but his silence also creates
12:15 am
a leadership vacuum that some. here could worsen the crisis from what a whole team al-jazeera. well palestinian demonstrators have gathered along the gaza israel border fence for the final time this year protests have wound down in recent months as egypt catherine the united nations try to broker a cease fire agreement between hamas and israel organizers said they don't intend to hold another protest until march since early last year protesters have been gathering at the border every friday demanding the right to return to their ancestors' homes well i said today a spokesman and spokesman for the quite much of our time is mentioned as the precious are important for raising awareness we are looking at it with government and you know it's going to still going to be. out of the political scene it's not our problem our the problem that we have all right we need to bring all the attention of the all over the world the palestinian are suffering hardships

more than a dozen employees have been arrested in montenegro after they violently protested a law on religious freedom controversial legislation went there in the early hours of friday morning and requires religious institutions to prove they hold the rights to their property before 918 but opponents say it will on fairly target the serbian orthodox church and. opposition members being carried out of politics in montenegro deputies from a pro serb polity came to blows with their rivals just before a lot of religious communities was passed lawmakers through what appeared to be a tear gas canister or a firecracker plainclothes police wearing gas masks intervened detaining 17 politicians from the democratic front to come without us. we expect that our colleagues will soon be released from custody we will also have a consultation about what to do next how to articulate this at the section with
12:19 am
what we've seen in the parliament last night. that dissatisfaction has prompted protests by priests from the serbian orthodox church the big church in montenegro and ordinary citizens there worried the state could confiscate church assets under the new law religious communities need to prove property ownership from before $918.00 when montenegro joined the precursor of the now defunct yugoslavia opponents say the law is aimed at pro circuit city montenegro only separated from serbia in 2006 it's a step to you know get out of adonis this is a going to serbian church and serbian people we stepped in and come to montenegro we've been here long ago and we're here to stay. we're now asking that the government postpone some parts of this law which absolutely do not bring peace in montenegro but then happiness among people until after christmas the ruling
12:20 am
democratic party of socialists denies any plans to seize churches like this one already of the dozens of serbian orthodox monasteries and other properties in the country. given guarantees and assurances that this law doesn't have any hidden agenda it's a low any civilised and democratic society needs it doesn't endanger anyone it is facility governed by the montenegrin metropolitan it not as a question the status of any priest the serbian orthodox church in montenegro has called for calm but it says it will complain to international organizations about what it's calling a brutal threat to the freedom of religion barbara al-jazeera. well a strike in france which has crippled public transport and closed oil refineries is in its 23rd day now breaking the length of an a tourist stoppage in the ninety's where about pan reforms so the country's pension system present a 9 a lot cons government wants to merge 42 separate schemes into one for public sector
12:21 am
workers. he says it's needed to stop a scheme that already cost 14 percent of france's national income from going into deficit but workers are angry of a clause that means they would have to work to me is over the official retirement age in order to get a full pension for the. real leg of the government is even more difficult situation than it was during the $9095.00 strike as we're heading toward lobby the government of a government building in the conflict but to call it the will of damage will cure. well i mean as an economist at the french institute for international and strategic affairs joins me now from paris and i guess the unions know that french governments of the past have backed down in the face of such paralyzing strikes does it look as though the government of emanuel at home will be able to stand its ground against this source of pressure and frustration. well the those unions are really
12:22 am
focused in very specific issues related to that except and especially the transportation sector and those where it is. today that it fits from rather generous pension scheme some of them can retire as early as the early fifty's this is a much broader issue which is really the cool of this pension reform and it's not really watts those trade unions have really been focusing on so it wouldn't be that difficult for the government to make concessions so that those trade unions but those probably except. those but the main aim of the strip for west to pass somehow szell these pensions seems all choose your reduced. number and it seems indeed that they're going to do it cheap something fall as ambitious and began as a man why has the government taken this surprise if that would have been easier for
12:23 am
them to make concessions to raise all listen said they've gone in and from what you're saying you've got a different direction that what make much of a difference in terms of redesigning the system a toll. well so far this has rather succeeded he didn't ask to aging the concerns of those betrayed your knowledge unrepresentative but they felt to take on broader concerns those of the young best movement of the earth but maybe they felt that with confidence having been able to just somehow succumb gold it was those unions and they know it it would be easier and they know it's they could run to the top you're not it's been more than 3 weeks and the strike is back to so many people so many workers in the region especially around paris i mean is this ultimately going to be determined by how people fail if the destruction gets so bad
12:24 am
that the unions news popular support i mean the numbers involved in protests have been coming down but it looks as though. they still have the backing of the majority of the people. lee you know it's all strong i mean daniel to present the most well as list some some anger against the government generally within the public and although many people are suffering from those strikes it seems there are based on heart patients that they see that what this tour the unions are doing to us as a way to through protests they don't necessarily really support so the protest and there are actual. somewhat describe it as a generous welfare system wouldn't they as it is it something that is an economically sustainable life while some of the schemes are are really generous and people began will sure it's odd as it is that it is but it's of course really
12:25 am
different categories of workers and really the focus of the strongest is really on those people benefiting from those small generous pension schemes but the main issue with a strip almost for other people and with this kind of drool reference to the retirement age of 6163 for pension and this clearly been a lack of clot it's part of the government's own not saying it's 60 wanda's finally it's 63 and going to make some concession on that issue but this lot of clarity has been really detrimental to their strategy well thank you very much appreciate your analysis on this man a chinese that asked. the e.u. is warned that it might not be possible to negotiate a trade deal in the timeframe set out by the british prime minister boris johnson
12:26 am
european commission president as you have on delay and told a french newspaper that both sides need to think seriously about how long it will take last friday parsed johnson's breaks that bill was passed by a huge majority it leaves just 11 months now to negotiate a wide ranging trade agreement with the e.u. but johnson has ruled out extending that transition period beyond december 2020 meanwhile big changes coming to one of the most powerful countries in germany and whole country's leaders since 2005 is on her way out and his party's get ready for the battle to replace the center left social democrats are struggling to return to that dominant place in politics dominate cain takes a look at what might lie ahead and. there was a time when the social democrats dominated german politics those days are long gone now they are just junior partners in governments dominated by the christian democrats and fewer than one in 6 germans votes for this people's party which is
12:27 am
why the s.p.d. recently elected a new leader is driven by a more left wing view of politics and a deep dislike of the coalition with anglo-american. underspin script is busted by wars and i am skeptical about the future of this grand coalition i haven't changed my mind about that but with this resolution we give the coalition a realistic chance of continuing not more not less. in 2019 the party lost votes in every election it contested and fell behind both the greens and the far right alternative for germany in the polls which explains why many at the grassroots are in despair and. its allies we need to continue to develop a vision because ours is the only party that works through visions and emotions how much mitt said that those who have visions should go to the doctor and i would say don't contradict how much mitch go to the doctor and convince the doctor the nurses and everyone sitting in the waiting room so this party shines as it deserves to
12:28 am
carrying the future in its heart. some say this is not just a german phenomenon that across europe social democracy is in retreat and that's why there is this kind of feeling in germany that a lot of things are changing around or people don't see the kind of stewardship the kind of political leadership the big year or you know take take the bull by the horns and got into the right direction so i think what is with the needs to do in the next year and a half is to come up with the idea of where germany should be in 1015 years time but it's now almost 15 years since an as pay day leader was in charge of government here and with the polls suggesting the party is struggling to reach just 15 percent it seems that few voters want to give the social democrats the keys to this building any time soon dominic cain al-jazeera at the german chancellor. well still ahead on this now from london mourning the victims of india's protest families

12:38 am
a distance of nearly 60000000 can on which is called a close approach but the probes won't actually land until 2021 from the u.s. nasa is miles 2020 project is thought to be the most expensive carrying a small autonomous helicopter xo mas' is a joint project between the european space agency and russia's ross cosmos carrying 30 allan's to test washington materials. to 1st time missions from china with a rover that will explore laws for 90 days and the u.s. hope laws mission which will look into the planet's atmosphere. joining us now from bristol is astrophysicist and space journalist elizabeth pearson so competition is definitely heating up in the race for interesting these new developments with china they've lagged behind other countries when it comes to investing in training and research for going into space but they seem to make up for lost time. absolutely in
12:39 am
the last couple of decades china has come in leaps and bounds so they've been very much concentrating on their human space flight as you mentioned they are trying to build a space station a permanent space station to rival the international space station within the next decade or so and they've also sent multiple very successful missions to the moon and that's a trend that they can plan on continuing so they definitely come a long way will mention in 4 different missions they're from mars in 2024 different countries that are working on this the u.a.e. the u.s. europe and of course china which project are you most excited about. i think they will because they're all such different projects there's bits of each one that i'm very intrigued about for instance masses miles 2020 is going to be the 1st step in bringing samples home so mars is going to be able to look 22 meters down under the surface and then you have these 2 new players china and the u.a.e.
12:40 am
and i'm just going to be intrigued to see how they manage and deal with mars which has a reputation of being quite a tricky planet to deal with and to explore we see between many of these countries piccy china or in the u.s. in the past year or so this sort of diplomatic economic political rivalry is it any different is it more collaborative when it comes to the space race or or just as fierce one of the things that people really learned from the apollo era and the space race of the 1960 s. is that if you try and compete directly both sides lose out so it's all about working together or at the very least doing collaborative complementary missions so rather than stepping on each other's toes there is laws which protect a bit the u.s. and china from working together that's a law in the u.s. it's half but outside of that pretty much everybody realizes that if they want to go to mars with a big mission specifically
12:41 am
a human mission then you really need to work with other nations what do you think about suspicions around the ambitions of different countries when it comes to going into space. but there's a lot of people who. the most nations they tend to be fairly up front with what they hope to achieve by going into space a lot of it is about humanity and driving them forward there's a lot of kind of. a lot of that is about the prestigious they want to look important and like they've done this huge step for humanity but it's also space is big business so that's a lot of people trying to get a hold of part of that business which is a driver for a lot of big space missions what about the importance of these missions to mars and in terms of what we can learn from these projects what does it mean for us here on earth. for a lot as i said a lot of them are hoping to one day go towards manned missions but they all are at
12:42 am
their heart and that they call they are science missions in their own right and they're looking at mars and mars as this very intriguing planet because it's quite earth similar to earth in a lot of ways or at least it once was but it's also very very different and so being able to work out how it's similar to how it's different and why those differences happen til till's us a lot about why our planet ended up the way that it did. particularly around why the climates are so different what about financial constraints obviously going to mars any kind of space mission is very expensive you're talking billions of dollars to these big missions so that is again another reason why international collaboration is so important because rather than becoming one nation trying to put $10000000000.00 it's 10 missions trying to find a $1000000000.00 which is a lot more manageable. so be interesting to see what 2020 has and still we must
12:43 am
