4:02 pm
fighting boko last month the region is internationally recognized as part of as are by shan but controlled and inhabited by ethnic armenians were russia's foreign minister criticized turkey over its unconditional backing of azerbaijan he just. doesn't you know thoughts on the brutality that we do not agree with the position voiced by turkey that was also expressed several times by president so it is not a secret that we cannot agree with his statement that a military solution to the conflict exists and is permissible. well turkey's leader has shot back at russia with a defiant message and parliament's retch of type are the one says turkey will continue to support it says area lies that the region should be given back to azerbaijan resilin because that's a lot of you 3 members of minsk the united states russia and france are still putting this off with their stalling tactics just give them the occupied lands let them go to their lands let them do what they want in their own lands but there is an invasion here if there is democracy and human rights in this world and if you
4:03 pm
have been assigned to solve this problem as 3 members of the minsk group for 30 years what you need to do is not stall what you need to do is finish your negotiations and hand over the lands to their owner let's cross live 30 bernard smith he joins us from greece in armenia paranoids that's the international perspective we have heard there but the armenian prime minister is also been speaking what is he had to say. this was an address to the nation by the armenian prime minister nicol passion and he essentially admitted that they have had to make some military retreats in parts of the north and the south along the line of contact essentially admitting therefore that azerbaijan has made some gains and he also said that this has been very very difficult for his country he said that we have made we have had many many losses
4:04 pm
and i mourn this night all take all victims personally i bow in front of them and we know that there are at least $532.00 soldiers fighters killed in the fighting so far ethnic armenians and they release all the names or when you see the names they release the dates of birth as well 2001 to 2002 these are all young men 1819 years old many of them conscripts azerbaijan doesn't release the numbers of soldiers killed on that side but there will be casualties and they will also be younger many of them conscripts and burn wood meanwhile this violence continues despite that suppose that cease fire are a just bring this up to speed with what's happening on the ground. so there is still a lot of fighting along the line of contact and the angry rhetoric between armenia and azerbaijan is ratcheting up azerbaijan is accusing armenia of targeting oil and
4:05 pm
gas pipelines armenia says azerbaijan is trying to seize control of nagorno-karabakh russia's please over the top of this for them to observe the humanitarian cease fire don't seem to be being listened to on the big difference in the dynamic now is the involvement of turkey for many many well for 26 years since the end of the wall at the ceasefire 994 armenia and azerbaijan a face off across this line of control a lot of contact have been incidents before and the has been fighting before but never on this scale and this time the difference is the full throated support of turkey behind. and this is why russia says no we want a ceasefire we do not want we do not believe turkey should be involved in future talks over as a nagorno-karabakh which turkey believes those talks a failed because over 26 years they haven't found a resolution to what to do with nagorno-karabakh all the lands taken by armenia in
4:06 pm
the last war they formed a band of smyth are joining us from grace in armenia thank you. tens of thousands of people have been displaced following days of having fighting between government troops and taliban fighters in southern afghanistan it began on saturday and aid agencies now is say hospitals are becoming overwhelmed the fighting is in helmand province uncensored or owns the regional capital lashkar gah the u.s. has been carrying out air strikes to defend afghan security forces it's the 1st major taliban offensive since peace talks with the afghan government began last month and it could complicate the united states plans to bring home remaining troops by christmas or for more let's cross to feel your control free she joins me live from kabul and feel what's the situation like right know in helmand province and just how is it impacts in those who are caught in the middle.
4:07 pm
as you can see the sun has already said here in kabul and across afghanistan and probably that means that homeland will be bracing for another difficult night as most of the fighting in the military operations are taking place during the night we heard from doctors without borders here in afghanistan just a few minutes minutes earlier who described a very grim situation in terms of casualties they main trauma hospital in provincial capital. has been operating at full capacity cannot treat any more people and the m.s.f. supported another m.s.f. supported hospital in the area has been serving as an overflow facility with over 20 people have been admitted there in the past 24 hours and among them are even pregnant women and children in terms of the displaced according to the u.n.
4:08 pm
and local sources 35000 people have been forced to flee their homes a lot of them with nothing but their clothes we've seen pictures of them trying to load as much as they can and some model bikes and try to escape the fighting now you an assessment teams are over there in the try to assess the situation and it's extremely difficult to get information and a lot of the infrastructure the telephone lines have been damaged so it's hard to assess what exactly what the exact needs are so far about 500 people have been identified as displays that's about 70 families and a lot of them are in urgent and immediate need of basic things like water food and shelter because of the shelter that is being provided right now we see very very. very very basic and that's why i think they will try to send more teams to more in in the coming days to see how can the facilities situation in one of the common sense most western provinces where it's hard. too subtle to.
4:09 pm
come up to. a few of your country free reporting live from kabul thank you. well al jazeera is a summer binge of vegas and doha where the peace talks have been happening since last month. there have been some headway in the talks and to discuss that further we have or there's a senior advisor to president musharraf gone with another another he was also a member of the peace negotiation team thank you very much for taking the time i've heard you describe this as this ongoing violence as an impediment to peace in afghanistan is the afghan negotiation team willing to leave the table if the violence doesn't stop well our brief from national defense and security forces or doing the job of protecting our people or our constitution. that this level of violence that we have seen in the past 3 weeks is a clear indicator of less care about peace by the side more about the violence it's
4:10 pm
acceptable to our people to see civilians dying to see public properties and public infrastructure be destroyed and that's not injecting a good sense of confidence in the peace process that we're so willingly ungentlemanly and faithfully gauged and the other side doesn't inject that with the same level of general in this to stop the violence we need to get this violence level down or stop it completely or people demonstrably so that they can build a level of trust and confidence that the peace process will lead to a shared future for all of our friends that's what we are. engaged and looking forward to to work with taleban. together that you. find so much still to come on the news hour including here in nigeria where protests against police brutality are continuing for
4:11 pm
a 7th straight day. and in sports andy murray is still looking to hit top form since his return from surgery all the details straight ahead in the show. my. israel has approved the construction of thousands of new illegal settler homes in the occupied west bank it's the 1st time israel has approved the building of settler homes since a normalization deal with the united arab emirates and in the settlements are considered illegal under international law when these are ibraheem as lifers just outside ramallah in the occupied west bank it needs a high are palestinians reacting to this news. we've just heard from the spokesperson of the palestinian president not beat up again and he says that he condemns this move any condemns the general situation which
4:12 pm
israel's getting to expand its illegal settlements on the ground while at the same time getting what he called free normalization deals with israel of course this advancement of these new units that resembles the highest number of units being advanced in one year if compared to at least a decade we know that the issue of settlements has been the reason for rift between the israeli government and the previous u.s. administration under president obama just writes before the end of obama's 2nd term the u.s. did not. vote or veto a u.s. . sorry a u.n. security council draft resolution that condemned settlements and considered them illegal under international law so it was a message from the obama administration against the israeli illegal israeli settlements and many palestinians here are hoping that at term or that if the
4:13 pm
democratic nominee joe biden is going to be elected in november that they think that this would curb israeli plans of expanding settlements. need to what do you think the science and means though for the u.a.e. the normalization deal because this was salt on the basis of a suspension of israeli settlements and this is happening now. let me just point out one no tallow when the u.a.e. deal was announced to normalize relations with israel the u.a.e. has said that it has done is some sort of a favor for palestinians by stopping annexation which is an israeli a move that was discussed in israel the israeli government was going to be annexing parts of the occupied west bank including the jordan valley and some settlements
4:14 pm
here and there but poor palestinians they would tell you it doesn't matter if israel has delayed an expansion plans or put them on hold so long as certain and construction on the ground is continuing we're standing here now in front of the one israeli settlement it stands on the lands of. many residents have lost their lands and lost access to their lands to their olive trees we are in the all of season right now where many farmers cannot even acts of their land because of the growing in expansion of illegal israeli settlements and we're not just talking about homes we're talking about homes road systems infrastructure and what have you that makes any possibility for a future contiguous palestinian state almost impossible ok leader ibrahim there live for is in the occupied west bank thank you very much indeed. let's get more now from not be a shot a senior palestinian official ended fine said see the palestinian president mahmoud
4:15 pm
abbas and joins us from ramallah kids have you with us on the knees are how do you think this latest move for further harm an already shattered peace process what are the what is the palestinian authority planning to do about this. i think mr trump the united states made it very clear what we have been warming our brothers in the gulf for for a very very clearly and very. distinctly that that this term plan has nothing to do with peace it has to do with allowing israelis to annex as much of the illegally occupied territory of the west bank town and east jerusalem as possible. a said no by creating relationship with israel but israel is will be late for ever be it to be sure an extension and became
4:16 pm
very clear today that this is were there was never true lives were going on with an extension with further settlements became over as much of our really as possible there is no advantage at all that the palestinian people. the arabs creating a relationship with israel there is absolutely nothing that mr graham has planned for the palestinians or a 2 state solution or peace it will look quite bold i mean to the palestinians have any options here at all or is this something that is just going to have to happen because the israelis are the powerful ones and they now have normalization agreements with the u.a.e. with they're trying to get more deals with with more countries do you think this will tilt the balance at all will the u.s. and battery back track its all or are the palestinians left with nothing.
4:17 pm
i think it's possible that the battering may retreat from the position after what they heard today it is definitely this is going to discourage any other arab countries from going their way and we're there we're not leaving we're not going anywhere. there is in fact enough. support for us in the arab world and the rest of the world and. we're hearing on our land we're not leaving it we're 7000000 people in the in the area occupied in my think would be a very occupied back in 67 which is absolutely equal to the number of jews in israel and in the settlements before there is no way you can reach a solution that will bring about peace. and unfortunately we have lost shaath there he was
4:18 pm
a person official and adviser to the palestinian president mahmoud abbas well israel and lebanon the nations are technically at war have met for the 1st time in decades to discuss their maritime border disputes that allegations were in southern lebanon for what was called in direct talks both sides claim parts of the mediterranean coast line were all in gas fields have been discovered center how to report from the koran. away from the media israeli and lebanese negotiators talk about a decades old maritime border dispute for the 1st time the hostile neighbors are sitting in the same room but are speaking through their un hosts and u.s. mediators they insist this is not about making peace but it's about extending the exploration of potentially gaz a rich waters in the mediterranean the timing appears to be political it's quite
4:19 pm
peculiar that is happening. when us. toward some of them used. to simply mean that. the deal was announced after u.s. sanctions were imposed on politicians including a close ally to speaker of parliament nabih berri for corruption and financially enabling hezbollah berry is an ally of the iranian backed group which has fought wars with israel in the past and previously opposed the us mediating role in the dispute hezbollah says its attitude toward israel hasn't changed and given that it's the strongest force in lebanon its approval is needed for talks to go ahead both israel and lebanon and says the negotiations are not about normalization or reconciliation but this is the 1st time the 2 sides discussed a civilian issue since middle east peace talks in 1990 israel and lebanon claim
4:20 pm
about 860 square kilometers in the mediterranean sea where significant gas fields have been discovered the problem is that. i don't mind. and we are expecting. what you want and them. best. but amid a reelection campaign the trumpet ministration has politically invested in these talks coming after the u.s. brokered deals between israel and the u.a.e. and. they were aware of pressure so the pressure and the u.s. having some sort of agreement moving forward but obviously didn't really. have a more direct engagement with the mother of. the evidence is limited at this point that's not a full organisation but but i think at this point it's a win win but it's not the guarantee that we have in the especially a quick one there is no deadline but in the words of a u.s.
4:21 pm
diplomat the talks can bring about stability and security along the volatile border deal or not for now these negotiations are serving the interests of all the parties involved. southern lebanon. amber of the far right golden dawn party in greece has been sentenced to life in prison for the murder of a rapper and the heads of the party now deemed a criminal organization was jailed for 13 years golden dawn members censored parliament at the peak of the greek financial crisis back in 2012 its absence of anger against the stereotype measures and had a fiercely and see immigrants agenda well as cross life that see john psaropoulos he joins us from athens john these are fairly hefty sentences how significant would you say these judgments are. both criminally and politically significant i think this is thought to be the 1st time in europe this a nazi party or
4:22 pm
a fascist party has been convicted in its entirety the 18 golden dawn members of parliament who entered the legislature in 2012 with 7 percent of the popular vote at all now been given severe prison sentences for the 6 most senior including the party leader 13 years plus 6 months to a year for weapons possession a 7th leading m.p. gets 10 years and the remaining 11 which includes the wife of the party leader get between. 5 and 7 years full membership in golden dawn that's because golden dawn was deemed by the coat to be a criminal organization masquerading as a political party because all of the acts of violence committed by golden dawn members were deemed to be part of a systemic agenda for violence by the party directed by the leadership
4:23 pm
that's why the leadership has twice the sentences of the other m.p.'s who weren't part of the political committee of the percy so full directing or being a member of a criminal organization all of those m.p.'s now face those jail times there's also the matter of the murder of the left. that began the unraveling of golden dawn in september of 2013 just a little more than a year after it entered parliament very severe sentences there for the killer 25 year life sentence plus 10 years for being a member of golden dawn plus 80 years for weapons possession and use a total of $43.00 for the murder of that rapper and his accomplices get between 6 and 8 years and those sentences have all been very positively commented on by all
4:24 pm

4:35 pm
election we end up at the supreme court she wasn't going to comment on that one of the interesting things that she did actually commit to was during questioning from cory booker who's a democratic senator from new jersey he ran for the democratic nomination but failed earlier this year he managed to put some clear blue water between her and the president during his questioning he got her to admit and say quite clearly that she felt that white supremacy was a portent was wrong and she also acknowledged that there was in heaven bias in the u.s. justice system so you can expect some of the democratic senators to go back and revisit those issues they are trying to get to commit to see how will you vote on some of these key issues that are likely to come before the court but she continues to quote ruth bader ginsburg a liberal justice when she had a confirmation more than 20 years ago when she said there can be no previews of what she is going to do at the court she will judge each case on its merits she
4:36 pm

a younger person i am relic ready and willing to get out here and brave the cold and the cold that i had to make it and i got it down it was so much at stake and president trumps unfounded claims that mail in voting could lead to massive fraud there are problems the republican party in california installed dozens of their own ballot drop off boxes virtually indistinguishable from boxes sanctioned by the state officials call them unofficial and illegal and have insisted they be removed those official ballot drop boxes go through a number of steps that are required in law and regulations for installation for security for placement so having these unofficial ballot drop boxes that anybody can go to on main and and not meeting all those requirements is just not appropriate according to the u.s. election assistance commission the popularity of 1000000 votes has been growing for years but this year it may play into the hands of democratic presidential nominee joe biden here in florida the number of early votes reveals
4:40 pm
a potentially worrying statistic for president donald trump the number of democratic voters who cast their ballots early tops republicans by more than 350000 this is a state the president must win many republican voters don't trust mail in voting so those numbers will change is election day draws near or at the biden campaign's push to get people voting early seems to be working make a plan to. how early and then get involved i know you're busy i know i know you're stretched out. but there's action is tell important not to do you every single thing we can florida is the 1st state to begin sorting its mail in ballots but like other states votes will to fishley be counted until election day for now only the computers know the results of what will be a historic presidential election and gallacher al-jazeera miami florida. for the process against governments corruption and cyprus are expected later on wednesday
