10:03 am

10:04 am
he is highly revered loved general and many people have spoken to him even on our way here from the tower on the set that they just can't believe he was gone the whole country is in mourning and just to give you an idea from a plane ride here from tehran the flight attendants or the pilot himself they were saying prayers for the late general the pilot have written a poem for us themselves thanking him for his service to the country and people that are gathering here today on ashot say that they are here to say goodbye aside from the grief that we've seen there's also a lot of anger and frustration with iranians want their governments and their military to respond they want revenge and they don't necessarily want a full on conflict but people that we've spoken to that across the 2 cities mash up and tear on say that it is time for. to respond to such a violent act so also tell us what will happen as we move towards tuesday and his
10:05 am
burial. of. the well this is now becoming what i would describe as a state funeral. of the late general is now going to be arriving in mashhad and then by this evening before him back to attack iran where there will be more services for him by various officials in the capital and that not only a monday morning the supreme leader himself i totally harmony will be performing all right or service over the coffin at temple university following that his body will be taken to the holy city of just outside of tehran and then from there the little being flown to his hometown of care man on tuesday where he will be laid to rest that will his own emotions there is a request from him to his life stable should he die in. battle that he wanted to be buried and look out any large ceremony at his hometown among the other martyrs in
10:06 am
a cemetery that only those in care one in central iran so that is the chain of events that we 'd expect to take place but this is going to be very much the state funeral in the country is in mourning and until tuesday that will be the case dorsetshire there joining us live from amman in iran dorsett thank you let's go live now to see more of fulton who's standing by for us in baghdad hi there simona what so the significance of these most recent air strikes that we've been hearing about in iraq. well this pair of rocket attacks are just the latest in a series of attacks against bases where u.s. personnel are stationed last night we had a couple of rocket attacks aimed at the fortified green zone here in baghdad one of them hit a little bit outside of the u.s. embassy compound and the other one hit across the river tigris in the neighborhood
10:07 am
and there were no u.s. casualties although the coalition spokesperson said that there might have been iraqi casualties in terms of civilians being injured although we have not received confirmation for that as of now there was also a separate attack on the ballad base which is about 80 kilometers north of baghdad this is a base where coalition troops are stationed and there were also 2 rocket attacks aimed at this base but again nobody was hurt now these latest attacks they bring the total number of rocket attacks on bases to 13 over the past 2 months but they're very much in line with the kind of actions that we have seen on the part of groups like the hezbollah brigades which have been accused of carrying out some of these attacks in the past but what we haven't really seen is a departure from these kind of operations something that would really be a sign of escalating retaliation against u.s. presence here we did have
10:08 am
a statement come out from the hezbollah brigades last night calling on iraqi troops to withdraw from bases where coalition troops are stationed so that they are not basically collateral damage when such attacks are happening so there is some kind of expectation that there might be further attacks that there might be further escalation and similar parliament's holding an emergency session walk can we expect to happen. well at the moment there are a lot of questions about this session the 1st one is whether there will actually be quorum parties are still deciding whether or not they should attend i spoke to one member of parliament earlier and he was expecting guidance from the party leadership to this particular party is a kurdish party of course the kurds and also the sunnis are among those parties that support american presence here and are unlikely to back any kind of legislation that would see the removal of u.s. troops from iraq which is of course something that has been demanded by the shiite
10:09 am
parties and specifically political parties that belong to the popular mobilisation forces now the 2 biggest blocks in parliament are shiite led blocs there is the big coalition which is the largest bloc and it consists mostly of political parties with close links to iran they have been basically leading the call for the departure of the us troops from iraq we also have a party that is led by a shiite cleric mark that assad or his party has in the past also supported such a motion so it remains to be seen whether we will have corum it remains to be seen which parties will actually support legislation to see the departure of u.s. troops but there are also questions of how this would actually happen there is no bill that has been proposed by the prime minister's office that parliament could actually vote on and there is actually a legal issue with a caretaker government which is what we have at the moment proposing legislation
10:10 am
this is not something that is considered in line of the constitution so what could happen is that parliament would actually knol the existing agreement that exists between the u.s. and between iraq to outline the cooperation between the 2 countries including military cooperation so that is one option that we're likely to see but again 1st of all we have to wait if sufficient members of parliament will actually turn out in today's session smaller folds and there with the very latest from baghdad simona thank you. don't will trump has issued a stark warning to iran threatening to hit dozens of targets inside the islamic republic if it retaliates for the targeted killing of top commander customs the us president fired off a series of tweets part of which said iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain usa assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader let this serve as a warning that if iran strikes any americans or american assets we've targeted 52
10:11 am
iranian sites and those targets in iran itself will be hit very fast and very hard the u.s.c. wants no more threats let's live cross to gave. in washington d.c. hi there gabe so president jiang releasing this series of tweets warning iran about any sort of response what else has he been saying. yeah this appears to be a president that is consumed at every hour about what iran might be doing next and how do we know that from his twitter feed it was just a little after midnight here in washington time that trump set out even more threats towards iran this just came out in the last hour or 2 it said and i were a report of it says the united states just spent 2 trillion dollars on military equipment we are the biggest and by far the best in the world if you run a tax an american base or any american we will be sending some of that brand new
10:12 am
beautiful equipment their way and without hesitation again that a tweet from the president a little after midnight and he's really drawing quite frankly dangerous red line there basically escalating the situation even more so basically in that tweet guaranteeing that he will call he will retaliate against iran should iran strike any u.s. interests here this is a little bit surprising because we've been hearing all day on saturday from administration officials who are saying they were trying to deescalate the situation including secretary of state might pump ale who said that was the main priority was to deescalate meanwhile you have these series of tweets by the president doing exactly the opposite and in some of his earlier tweets on saturday where he mentioned over 50 targets that the u.s. had on their list he said some of them were important cultural sites to the to iran iran has more than 20 unesco world heritage sites in the country of iran and
10:13 am
targeting those militarily would be a war crime nevertheless that is what the president tweeted at least i'm gave this been some fascinating concept in a new york times article reporting that the pence going to facials were stunned when trump chose the most extreme option of killing when there were other choices given to the president. yeah some administration officials anonymously are talking to the new york times and they're reporting that the pentagon gave trump what's called a menu of options in response to the attack on the u.s. embassy in baghdad trump asked for a menu of options military options that could beat undertaken and on those options the pentagon said that they could strike iran. boats or
10:14 am
ships there could choose to restrike iran millett missile launching places they could strikes militia and also said that they could strike directly at some of the money now when trump said that is the option he wanted to go with that apparently shocked the pentagon they were not expecting that they scrambled to get plans in place and it was thursday night according to this report that trump ultimately told the pentagon to assassinate sulaimani and on friday that's exactly what happened ministration officials are telling and are saying that it was in many ways an impulsive decision by trumper that's how it's been characterized by some at least within the administration that has spoken the times gave elizondo there with the very latest from the u.s. and from washington d.c. gates thank you libya's health ministry says at least 30 people have been killed
10:15 am
after an airstrike by forces loyal to warlord how many. it targeted a military academy in the capital tripoli that death toll is expected to rise so with reports of many board bodies at the scene it is the 2nd attack now in 24 hours after an airstrike hit a civilian area near tripoli's only functioning airport that killed one person the what it is in tripoli and he says most of the victims are believed to have been young cadets who were no ots on active duty. it's very clear to. the hospitals the popular caused those were the victims were transferred from the military academy that was hit by a drone loyal to the warlord. we just came back from one of the public hospitals where the victims are receiving good treatments and medical sources that say that it was so difficult for them to identify the bodies of the did victims because most of the dead bodies were either burned or torn apart by the attack
10:16 am
now medical sources also say that they have been calling the health ministry has been calling on people to go to the hospitals to do neat blood most of the victims are aged 18 to 22 and their military students from all the cities and areas in libya do not we spoke to the commander the head of this military academy said that they don't have anything to do with the ongoing fighting for control of tripoli just as students of military academy they're not fighting against have to his forces that's where there is no reason why his forces are targeting this a military academy and meanwhile have to the fighter jets also targeted the main gate of m 80 gear port and of yours has been halted in the airport and all flights have been diverted again to misrata airport about 2 and a half hours drive to the east from the capital of tripoli not quite up to 100
10:17 am
reporting there well as tensions mount over turkey's plan to send troops to support the un recognized government in tripoli egypt has been doing military exercises in the eastern mediterranean sea egypt which supports warlord highly has warned turkey that any intervention will only make the situation in tripoli and of course the region much worse. still ahead on al-jazeera the daytime sky doctrines to blood bred in a stray yasser another day of destructive far. hello the fighting cooperation across much of your the stand your clatter and some fog in the morning hours but for the most pause it is staying mild and fairly clear and i
10:18 am
was look at our system through the eastern end of the med but nowhere near as strong certainly on sunday want to work the way across greece pushing on to turkey and we have a snow as well across much of the balkans but really we're watching this system out across the northwest because this is beginning to work its way across towards you can slightly by monday pushes in through ali and some strong winds as well as some very heavy amounts of rain that will push across into scotland and wales and western sections of england as we go through the day but really the bulk of europe certainly on monday it is a fine day temperatures on too bad even in london with that rain pushing in we've got 8 celsius 7 in paris 11 degrees in madrid but really it is a very unsettled picture monday across much of that rain back in the fall call some strong gusty winds along coastal areas and some fairly widespread snow as well we've also got want to show these northern coastal areas of africa's as we go through sunday we could see if you shine on tools tunisia and then really from sunday on into monday everything shift a little further eastward so again
10:19 am
a few more shots certainly through libya and egypt as we go through the day on monday. frank assessments the one thing about these bush fires is it's really well the. climate change informed opinions economy i think is actually what's keeping down the truck afloat right now critical debate cyclone goes to school board noise on 'd a bogus argument is astonishing the part time thing in-depth analysis of the day's headlines this is the beginning of a new iraq of the new conscious and aware youth about struggle against an ethnic sectarian cult of inside story on al-jazeera. the world.
10:20 am

10:22 am
that ted king king in. taxes is king and people the kenyan government king in hotels killing can mean anything really because the king of somalia in terms of basically they've deployed their troops in somalia 2 years ago and that's why they keep me talking king a lot to give cause there was a big 'd explosion in somalia in one that issue that killed dozens of people again claimed by al-shabaab so it seems like all people in this region al-shabaab to be around. their attacks in somalia and in kenya but right now in terms of which they are told that it's not quiet detective in that but of course people are asking how did al shabaab manage to break through a haze of the fortified military base in came and got it by the king and the americans can harm with half they're joining us with the very latest on that story harry thank you. now at least 14 people have been killed in 1000 of us
