question the use and abuse of power around the globe and how does iraq. play an important role ringback. i'm adrian finnegan in doha with a summary of the news from al-jazeera north korea's military says that it will redeploy troops near the demilitarized zone and resume regular exercises along frontline areas it comes a day after pyongyang destroyed a liaison office used to communicate with south korea early a soul warned that it will respond strongly to any further provocations bright as the latest from poggio on the south korean side of the border. stent simply they have used the excuse if you like of people defectors in the south korea releasing
balloons with propaganda into the north they believe that the south koreans were able and should have been able to stop these defectors from doing this it doesn't raid the north but i think they're probably using that as an excuse to almost create a crisis cycle if you like partly out of frustration i think at the way that south korea as they see it has not been able to get relief from international sanctions to get the united states to move on their position on nuclear weapons they probably naive li believed that moon j. and the president of south korea was able to do more than he was able to do is hand to a certain degree are tied but i think there is a certain frustration that they have that patience has run out with the south and they are lashing out now at south korea and it remains to be seen just where the place goes but i think possibly they might believe that still the south koreans can
put pressure on the united states but also partly this could be for domestic consumption they almost need an excuse to explain to their own people while this whole process has fold and apart and also it comes at a time of course when we have the coronavirus north korea famously says it doesn't have a single case of the of the virus but this whole pandemic has meant that it is far more isolated now and i think it's important for the kim regime to show its own people that it's still very much in charge india and chinese officials are blaming each other for a deadly border brawl at a disputed region of the himalayas late on monday nights 20 indian soldiers were killed when a standoff of a construction escalated to stone throwing and fist fights india says there were casualties on the chinese side as well beijing hasn't confirmed this. a cheap and widely available steroids can dramatically cut the death rate from covert 19 a new drug trial in the u.k. is shown the world health organization is describing the results of the tics and

15th of may 1967. a parade and military might to celebrate 19 years since the founding of the state of israel. that this public display of power took place under a dog shadow. the previous day egyptian president. had ordered his forces to take up positions along the borders but israel. look at last came in no. way and that.
the life. so i get done i can still levy. 3 weeks later on the 5th of june 1967. israel launched an all out against its arab neighbors. after only 6 days of fighting. to chief total victory. defeating the armies of egypt jordan and syria. the cost me. shave plays a mean. bet some like them some are. me the dust if ya know we have a way of looking at. noon to israel. as the 6 day war. israel's territorial gains would change the map of the
middle east. to this day israeli occupation of these lands is the main bar to peace in this turbulent region . is huge scotto its 5th season early on we had conquered it completely intoxicated everybody was intoxicated no one could even think straight. but the story of this school is much longer than the 6 days of fighting. its roots lay years earlier. 2 decades before the 5th of june 1967. to.
the lebanese attacks from the north the syrians iraqis and jordanians from the east but the most serious threat came from the south. the egyptian army advanced to the village of you've been a vicious 22 kilometer us from tel aviv. to vet a very thin line of soldiers who were defending what was collecting the the last line of defense of tel aviv. but the pressure on the israelis was relieved when a un brokered truce came into effect. the zionists through the movement purchased arms on the european black markets. the arab armies of course enjoyed mainstream supplies from a states the french supplied the lebanese and the syrians the british supplied the egyptians the jordanians and their at peace with a constant stream of arms. in
1942 the united nations imposed an embargo on arms shipments to the middle east and the british and the french abided by this in bargo. when the truce ran out the israelis now better armed set out to expel the arab armies from palestine. the tamil think i'm headed ascii have called brooklyn to the floor i'm sorry your new governor was leah kind of shifting on popcorn could be on a lot of mostly a kind of he has got to have. been is going to have a lot of the. talk. by the end of october as israeli troops advanced. and egyptian brigade was inside. a palestinian village called and fallujah. among the offices
trapped in this pocket was a young major demand and done. with their armies locked in a stalemate egyptian and israeli delegations met on the island of rhodes. under the sponsorship of the un. after a month of bargaining they reached an armistice agreement. well 1st of all they had to put an end to the fighting believe that egypt was to get out of there as much as israel wanted and the negotiation was mostly both evacuating the flu to pocket. the agent had no territorial demands from israel so it was relatively easy to reach a cease fire. by the summer of 1949 lebanon jordan and syria had also signed armistice agreements with israel.
the jewish state now extended over almost the whole of palestine. arab territory it was reduced to just a few small enclaves east in jerusalem and the west bank were placed under jordanian control. the gaza strip was to be administered by egypt. in the midst of defeat. said conceived a plan that would change the future of egypt. a movement that would be known as the free office's. africa theater missile but that the harbor were different that out of range. of out of a black hole 11 the top of. the one a lot of what i got aside that when they had the took
a bad fear. that led to see a mostly. washer going down a lot of. the of the samata were poor machete that al well firm but there are. 3 years after the end of the war the free offices struck. in july 952 they launched a coup de tat. egypt's king photo was dethroned and sent into exile. lieutenant colonel come on up to. the mosque to mine behind what was now cooled the july revolution quickly rose to be the country's to shock to lead. in israel this news aroused deep rooted fears in kibbutz state who can bring time
and home of israel's founding prime minister david banker. thing gorean all the time feared that one day a new kemal ataturk would rise in the arab world and would united for the car of world against israel. and the fear of that prevention was enhanced when nasa took power 95th. and february 1955 ben-gurion returned to political life. this time as defense minister. just a week after bangor ian took up the post 150 israeli paratroop as led
by major ariel sharon. was sent to attack an egyptian army base near the city of gaza. 40 egyptian soldiers were killed. and many more injured. when bigger came back he decided made a plea to show that israel is not going to give in. this time a from the egyptian border the provocations and the attacks by intl traders who are on the rise in. a tub the mass of. products that mean feet away in mass of some your comes from c.m. was. the gal in medina or was. what.
and that has. what has alerted. are. claiming they were egyptian territorial waters not sort of close the terrans straight at the entrance to the gulf of aqaba to ships sailing to and from the israeli border to the land. to strengthen his army not some sort more weapons from the west at this time to no avail. so in a surprise move he turned east. russia's new foreign minister mr should be laugh lost no time in taking a personal part in middle east affairs and he was soon engaged in talks with president nasser. egypt signed this huge arms deal which echoes
slovakia which was actually soviet union. the slovakia was supposed to supply egypt with 200 aircraft. tanks. 1000 it was something fabulous. in november 1955 bangor ian began a 2nd term as israel's prime minister. at the top of his agenda was how to respond to the growing strength of egypt now armed to the teeth. 8 months later the opportunity came. when nelson announced the nationalization
of the suez canal. a decision that outraged the british and french the owners of the international canal company. this is a matter of life and death to israel. our quarrel is not with it to last with the out of work. it is with colonel not. he's not a man who can be trusted. under green. britain and france were convinced that military intervention would be needed to recapture the canal. and bring down the upstart. but to pretext was needed. fought on the say. was it of. a sort of 80. 7 was sat right in their
home with very up. other s.s. . enormous clubroom in a final note that he by the how to kill myself akasha i'm yellow leg anybody contextless. been caught i kind of. well most of us i thought of for. the at that a yacht lingle that i'll follow in normal eleanor and. according to this tripartite secret agreement on the 29th of october 1956. israeli forces crossed the border into egypt. even though the israelis was still some distance from the canal britain and france called for both sides to withdraw. when nasser
rejected the ultimatum british and french troops began landing and put signs at the mediterranean and the canal. united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions nor were we informed of them in advance. it is our hope and intent this matter will be brought before the united nations general assembly there with no veto operate in the opinion of the world can be brought to bear in our quest for a just in to this tormenting problem. by the end of december. under heavy international pressure. the british and french were forced into a humiliating the drool trumpeted site. louvel
attention now shifted to israel. i'll still occupying the whole of the sinai and the gaza strip. a little incitements he took a lot up yes i in the east. knesset. in march 1957 ben-gurion finally ordered the israeli army to withdraw to the pre-war borders. however he had secured 2 major gains. the stationing of un troops along the borders with egypt and gaza put an end to the palestinian fedayeen
xrayed inside israeli territories. and israel was guaranteed free passage of has shipping through the tiran strait. the sinai complain gave israel actually about 10 years of. signed peace. on the egyptian border between $157.00 and let the $67.00 there was a total call. but the fragile peace on the borders masked continuing hostility between cairo and tell of eve. in israel as their fights man the commander of the air force was devising a new strategy. operation focus. i mean
among some kids. thought the finale to its war a concept. seemed the most movie and we would see what the mission movie. made out how making me tell you the right sling for the only one close you know appealing. but 2 things threatened to derail that plan. the 1st was egypt's highly versatile soviet made defenses. this network would soon face its 1st major test. not at the hands of fights mins after force but through the bizarre actions of an israeli peace activist. he would not and was a commercial pilot and every gimmick for elections of 1965 he bought a little airplane painted into wife and put. name peace and said if i'm
elected to the knesset i would fly to egypt. he was not elected to very small number of people voted for him but i did time he became very serious of this so one day without any announcement he took off his claim. ab in a tan planted import sally to egypt in february 1966. and it is. when is it and what it is. wilson of. the moment the 10 asked to meet president. to deliver a petition calling for peace. egyptians treated him very nicely they did not let him into egypt but they can feel his tank is gather lin and sent him
back. in a tense flight had revealed the weakness of egypt's ad defenses. but israel still had a major concern. the make 21. a high performance supersonic soviet fighter. it formed the backbone of the arab air forces. but it too would soon give up its secrets. in august 1966 an iraqi pilot landed in israel with his make. he had been offered a 1000000 u.s. dollars to defect. but it would turn out to be worth every cent. that the shapiro our chief test pilot of the air force checked the airplane and
when you all it's this event the gist of the make it one the one which was the airplane of the war in the enemy hands. it was not known before what the israelis had learned about the meat was put to the test in actual combat. in april 19th 67 the border skirmishes with syria escalated into a full scale aerial battle. was shut down 7 aircraft. it was such a victorian the israeli air force. in the weeks following this battle reports possibly originating with soviet intelligence began to come in that israel was massing its on me on the syrian border. an apparent escalation that spurred nasr into action.
on the food thousands of may 1967. did it gyptian troops into sinai. must be better than it has here while a 17 year old boy. got in the mail tell a teen and foscari. i hope she meant. even when who bought. out a house. that was all. sure. but small said it also saw an opportunity to try to roll back the gains israel had secured following the 1956 war. on the
16th of may egypt asked the un to withdrew its peacekeeping troops from sinai. a week later and the theatrical setting of a meeting with his fighter pilots. announced the closing of the tour on straight to israeli shipping. news of nasir is actions brought people out onto the streets all across the arab world. tell me a little baby of. slaves a little above. well a man in the water mother. of the could have said what it is showing at the behest of a political leader. israel's
new war cabinet under levy eshkol took the decision to open hostilities on the 5th of june 1967. the air force was given the green light to mange operation focus. the aerial attack it had been rehearsing for years. the israelis had trolled the dice which would determine the future of their states. from london is one of the most important cities in the world and decisions made here have an impact right around the globe and so here it on just the right we will show you the true impact of those decisions on people but how it affects their everyday that. we are free to put the money into greengage post it is because we
know there are audiences interested not just in the mainstream news but also the more hidden stories from parts of the world that often go on the record. hello again everyone for they're going to hear in doha the headlines on al-jazeera north korea's military says that it will reach deployed troops there the demilitarized zone and resume regular exercises along frontline areas it comes a day after pyongyang destroyed a liaison office used to communicate with south korea earlier seoul warned that it will respond strongly to any further provocations mcbride has the latest from poggio on the south korean side of the border. of more concern in the south will be this possible plan to set up guard posts one small inside the demilitarized zone
this strip of no man's land that separates north and south they as part of a 2018 agreements at the height of the reconciliation both sides agree to dismantle these very confrontational symbolic border posts and bring that troops back so that will be a concern especially as this whole agreement that was agreed back in the heady days of 2018 now seems to be in tatters indian and chinese officials are blaming each other for a deadly border brawl in a disputed region of the himalayas late on monday nights 20 indian soldiers were killed when a standoff of a construction escalated to stone throwing and fist fights india says there were casualties on the chinese side as well but beijing hasn't confirmed this a cheap and widely available steroids can dramatically cut the death rate from covert 19 a new drug trial in the u.k. is shown the world health organization is describing the results of the dexa meth

cairo the morning of monday the 5th of june 1967. a day that will change the history of the middle east. a plane is waiting to take off toward sinai. marshall added happy mohamed a deputy supreme commander of the egyptian armed forces is making a morale boosting visit to troops deployed on the borders with israel for the last 3 weeks. jamelia candidate one of the ship. buses and little. c.s.e. on what. we have come up lemme minute and cameron read. out i'm
a. team of the. but this egyptian show of strength was put to good use by israeli media. memories of the holocaust were invoked to persuade israelis they were facing a threat to their very existence. in a different view of the nazis. grandmother nothing was never mentioned by name in the bow media at the time it was called the egyptian tyrant that was his name. in washington u.s. president lyndon b. johnson issued a stark warning to which ever side should start the war. it was a thinly veiled threat to the egyptian leadership. at that extra. hour is come out of them also.
by your. heel. to warm a doubt about. what to go away your thoughts. about have a war. 3 a little hell thats a national. ian. not to look up but about well how did a slot in fox. in fact israel though apparently the underdog was far more prepared for war than any of its arab opponents. israeli chief of staff its cop could be in the front line to meet troops waiting for a green light. on the there is action of muscle is
a head to mobilize all his horses all inside the horses. and also told thing we should strike 1st and the sighting 1st was in the eyes of his leg ensign to what we thought. of this and you can see. the opening attack would be the much trust operation focus. and aerial strike to destroy the egyptian afghans on the ground. in the early hours of the 5th of june 19th $67.00. these really after was prepared to deliver the 1st blow. rubric up user morning and came to
the briefing room he wrote on was a blackboards 0 hours. it was $745.00. $200.00 israeli jets took to the app. they would arrive over egyptian at fields at exactly 7 45 am. to avoid radar detection they flew fast north then west over the mediterranean. turning south the planes came in from the north not from the east as the egyptians had anticipated.
by the team again a gun on him and it was clear that. he had the gun at it because in a field that's a kind of a tense item up. with a hostile call waiting a way for. you know everything. very easy as you trained the many many times before. his so-called were located very easy owns the ground and not far from there on those. was not a big problem to strike zone. immediately you so big torches swizz a smoke over olso said airfields. get
it when i matter and that melted steel 8 layers manila beacham go in and you know why i had gotten says if said a photon or a mother want to harm us. well listen. by midday the israelis had successfully attacked 18 airfields. the egyptians had lost 80 percent of that our force. more than $300.00 planes destroyed on the ground. they are but that. same. message to. the last of the far sighted.
ironically kyra radio was carrying false reports of the total failure of the enemy's air attack. with news coming in of egypt's apparent success jordan syria and iraq now launch their own ass strikes. and the. minute they have a shuttle shinee well you know it was 111 and. it's there to 1st receive human there so they're open. and when i'm sure isn't. going to see them. remember. ineffective though they were those attacks gave these really is a pretext to widen the scope of the whole. operation focus was extended to cover affeldt in jordan syria and even
a key base in iraq. page 3 on the only basis for me state called leeches and the only base in which we couldn't each with the last drops of. my serve fly to today. not far from damascus. when i made my 1st turn over the city of the most those people who climb on the roofs and wave for us the people in the most goes. off god the syrians lost half the act kroft. peachtree asked field in iraq was put out of action. and georgians after the spurs totally destroyed. by
sunset on the 1st day of. operation focus had guaranteed israel total ass superiority and the skies over the middle east. the arab armies would now be fighting with no ass in which. the outcome of the rule had to been sealed. anything that is no example in the history of the world of the asian of such a total strike in the total tank may be the only. that's a can compared to this bilawal the take. over totals all grades above that was almost that's him aided in the pacific.
on the ground egyptian forces were faring much better. they had succeeded in holding up the israeli army to tons and to sinai. yet the egyptian deputy supreme commander martial on that was about to take a disastrous decision. its roots lay in his attempted visit to the front line the day before. meant to see me say. i was. beautiful. i built all that small. even. a modest. record they are. the. best stop.
bamidele say could obviously. miraculously the plane was able to return to cairo. but marshal ahmed had been shocked by witnessing israel's as supremacy at fust time. the next day i met ordered an immediate withdrawal of the gyptian troops from sinai . and which led to the total collapse of the egyptian front. the custom before much of the i mean. shave it plays a mean bill what's very hush to base the way it's vague bets and write them in the summer. so young me the dust the ish young or you have to wear the long if.
they. can i'm sure he's saying. if only to last at last it color by your vet lists of a sense. share and it's a. big love with god that's a lot of him by story other than the fact they'd sell him get will mean shit come or him like a lawyer before. by the 4th day of the war israeli troops reached the eastern bank of the suez canal. they had occupied the whole of the sinai peninsula and the gaza strip. i'm not sure lived there for years apart caster. level at the most money. buffer zone but it's put back the governments. were should and i would have mellowed out
at the start as as human. kind of good but as for. the previous day the israelis had also tasted success on that eastern front. ending the short lived rule launched by jordan's king crossing. by 11 o'clock in the morning the 1st day visually of the way and destroyed the egyptian post but hussein didn't know into the. on the country and also called him up and said will winning will win in your old chair. he didn't know a new offensive it was in the name of the doing but he conquered the hills along the government tells it in danger that the saddam part of those on them and his
forces were only by now a few 100 yards away from his lamia house itself and so this is that. on the often news of the 1st day of the war. the israelis began their assault against the jordanians. the box will soon escalate. and 2 days later the whole of the west bank and jerusalem tell the israelis. of then they. could sleep in the slogan that the whole of it. seems the low quality . of the vote but the vote the should be on the other ben your news that awful and then. the cost lloyd.
with the wool but ovah on the egyptian and jordanian fronts and ignoring a un cool for a cease fire israel's high command now decided to secure its borders with syria. on the 5th day of war israeli troops began to climb the strategic golan heights. and some austen. suggestion the beneath it had but more as a welcome to you know be a little more through that valley of the moderate cut some almost and then we are on a must to. escort them out and it's a definite look at the i.d.f. and just really all about that something. truly yes she said that.
but on the 6th day of the rule damascus radio made an unexpected announcement. syria had accepted the u.n. cease fire. with no advance warning given to troops fighting on the go not to broadcast fatally undermined syrian army resistance. the man blamed for the army's collapse was the minister of defense. a man who would eventually rise to power in syria. how for as an aside. the israelis pushed on and occupied the whole of the golan heights. let me. sleep. there to see us here and let the audience for that we can walk out
of the clock not but but. it's a lot of them. at the end of the 6 day of fighting and only one attempt achieved all its goals israel accepted the u.n. cease fire. the guns fell silent. the arabs had suffered a humiliating defeat. me a yet gallon. of ethanol been a while you have if he hasn't. been many dead there for how morally mentally yet you can live. like i did.
and say. ma'am and. when i had. a month of it arrest me. when i didn't see. here. he would you be. under heavy popular prussia nasa rescinded his decision to step down from the presidency. and attempts to regain the lost arab territories began. israel had tripled its size capturing the sinai peninsula the gaza strip the west bank
eastern jerusalem and the golan heights. we tried everything we went to the united nations we tried mediation as we tried contacts with different countries and it was clear that all this was to no avail. their mood was let's give nothing back if we don't have to them a song there were. never the huge intoxication of victory. this huge unique miraculous victory of the army in the war. or the greatest tragedy in the history of islam. the israelis basked in an aura of invincibility. but their victory was just the start of even greater complications
which still plagued the middle east to this day. israel found itself governing and being responsible for a 1000000 palestinians in the newly occupied gaza strip west bank and jerusalem. to could vote 6 months to. a territory has. most in the west bank and then they came back and they said. there was another people there and they have a national movement. so what do we do if there are when we conquer them and create. a pot of state or we half the loaf to move predominantly deletion of the state called israel and the west bank and
gaza should be a basis for future negotiations terrible condition of their rights to have a state of their own the viable state of the old in the west bank and gaza. what israel chose was and still remains the 1st option. in the aftermath of the war israel declared what it called the unification of jerusalem. the entire holy city was placed under israeli jurisdiction including christian and muslim holy sites. we are the government and the only government in the area that is just a good we have obligations and privileges and duties there obligation and
fairly still maintain law and order and to provide the people with services and away she to believe standard of living as a garment like every government was its citizen. furthermore and in defiance of international law israeli settlers began to move into the west bank the territory they cooled judea and samaria. the lands which they want to settle in who are the core and heartland of the jewish people in biblical times israel judaism emerged as it was natural that there would be this messianic urge to settle those areas. even perhaps even clear out arabs from these areas and this didn't happen but jewish settlements were placed there and this is made things much more complicated for peacemaking here.
in addition to the west bank settlements were spreading in the gaza strip sinai and on the golan heights. and as the israelis tighten their grip on the occupied territories it became clear they had no intention of returning them. you need to get. a bomb to. muslims it will go on a block away and it will be that guy says an elephant could have a new block in the sullied vietnam and the in a mob couldn't beat wolf of wall off his appointment of them to nickelback one of them that all too old to wear is. what i miss the give me a nod to what then yeah but in maters to folks like that.
hello there very well in pictures throughout much of the united states particularly across the southwest meanwhile across the carolinas still some very heavy amounts of i know very stubborn overpressure which just really refuses to move so that could lead to some more flooding but as i say out across the west it is all about this there are numerous fires burning this is one not far off oklahoma city and i can just see really the size of this but also the ferocity it is very dry there is very low humidity and the winds a particularly strong so all the way across the desert southwest the southern plains even into central plains there's actually an elevated fine danger level up to critical over the next few days there's rain to the north of there you can see
it work its way into the northern plains and there is a system through wednesday which just sits really across the eastern seaboard it just doesn't move it does begin to ease on thursday the rain by then pushing up towards d.c. fine and dry across the southeast of a cloudy picture and then as i say out across the west it will still stay dry and those winds are still very strong so again the foundation of real concern meanwhile the rains a particularly heavy again through central america the yucatan peninsula one jurist nicaragua and am very heavy amounts of rain across into cuba in by thursday so if you want showers in the full cost at this time would be florida as well but the rains are heavy on across into the northern bahamas. at night in a stalking somali patrolled streets police ski and not. for lack of the most convenient target of gang violence the use the maternal approach to prevent crime.
but the stories we don't often hear told by the people who live there mothers of rain could be this is europe on al-jazeera. long. odds. north korea announces that it will resume military exercises on the border and boost its presence in the demilitarized zone after blowing up a building used for talks with the south. hello i'm adrian for the get this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up india says the 20 of its soldiers have died after fighting with chinese troops on the disputed border high in the himalayas. the trumpet ministrations.
