city which is an i.s.i.l. strong hold. there has been fighter jets pound of course, and cruise missiles fired from the caspian sea. russians said they have managed to kill hundreds of i.s.i.l. fighters in those areas. seems like the russians are trying to take all the oil installations knowing that the revenues of oil swirls the coffers of i.s.i.l., helping them to recruit foreign fighters. there has been russian air strikes. here, most of the syrian activists say that the air strikes have destroyed residential areas, killing more civilians. and that the general plan or strategy is not to take on i.s.i.l., but to pave the way for the government to move forward and reverse the game of

aleppo in idlib. it's a critical situation. russian ambassador warning russians against the escalation in latakia. where the military has been targeted. the americans and the international community are willing to see a united stance against i.s.i.l., and would like to see it coordinated. paving the way for i.s.i.l. to be defeated and at the same time for the syrian opposition to take over. >> according to the syrian observatory for human rights, russian air strikes killed 1300 since beginning on the 130th. 403 of those are civilians. 97 of them children. the rest, 928 were either fighters from i.s.i.l. or other

5:05 am
the russian president wants to step up the campaign in syria. >> i want to thank all of you. i want to stress for now it is not enough to cleanse syria of rebels and terrorists, and to protect russians from possible terrorist attacks. we face a lot of work. nearly 70 russian jets are carrying out 100 sortees every day in syria, against what moscow called terrorists. u.s. and allies criticized russia for targetting opposition groups targetting the syrian president. more than 60 countries are involved in an effort to find islamic state of iraq and levant. france sent the aircraft carrier to the mediterranean, to boost strikes on i.s.i.l. on some places coalition air strikes pushed back the group. two villages were attacked near aleppo. activists say more than 400
5:06 am

5:07 am
>> the principal targets have been moderate opposition. their principal goal appears to be, if you follow the strikes they took, to fortify the position of the bashar al-assad regime. that does not add to our efforts against i.s.i.l. in some ways it strengthens it, because i.s.i.l.'s fighting many of those groups that the russians were hitting. >> live in moscow, al jazeera's rory challands is there. how you are the comments going down in the kremlin, rory. >> well, the russian government insisted from day one of its air campaign in syria, which started back in september, that it was doing this precisely to take on i.s.i.l. that is why it is in syria, and you can argue that it is doing that. i mean primarily strikes have been taken, carried out against
5:08 am
i.s.i.l. and they have been increasing in severity over the last few days. the big question is not whether it is attacking i.s.i.l., but how much of it is attacking i.s.i.l. is it the main focus of the campaign, or is president obama the main focus of the campaign propping up bashar al-assad, and hitting the more moderate groups that have been fighting against the bashar al-assad regime since 2011. well, that's open to interpretation, and depend on who you believe, and which side you are on. certainly the big gulf with i.s.i.l., everyone believes they are bad, the americans, the russians, the saudis. all the actors involved in syria at the moment say that i.s.i.l. is bad. it's all the other groups and the bashar al-assad government that is where the problems are, and that is the difference between the view of moscow, and
5:09 am
the view of washington that is keeping these - all the different actors coming together and co-hearing in one coordinated campaign to take on the islamic state. >> diplomatically it will be a busy week for vladimir putin, what will be the focus on the hard to tackle i.s.i.l.? >> well, yes, it is. basically vladimir putin starts off the week by heading to iran. he will attend a summit of oil-producing nations. while there he'll meet with president hassan rouhani, and the ayatollah khamenei. and, of course, they will be taking about syria, because russia and iran are deeply involved in syria right now. later in the week the syrian foreign minister is going to moscow to talk about what is going on in his country. following that, another visit to moscow from francis hollande, the fridge president, who is trying to build a grand
5:10 am
coalition, similar to what the russians have been asking for for some time. basically following the attacks in paris and bringing down the russian plane over sinai, it seems there's an emerging agreement between paris and moscow. in the aftermath of the paris attacks, there was a productive sounding in vienna talking about syria, where the americans and russians were broad by singing from the same hm sheet, saying they'd like to have elections, a new constitution, and a ceasefire, all seen over the next 18 months. that was in the heat of the moment, after the paris attacks. and making that happen will be a fundamentally difficult thing. considering the actors are so - in such disagreement over the fate of the bashar al-assad government, it's really hard to see how they'll put that into prac. >> thank you for that rory
5:11 am
challands. >> belgium security officials will meet to diet whether to extend its state of emergency. the streets of the capital brussels are quiet after warnings of an imminent attack. shops and transport systems are closed, people are told to aboyd large gatorages. belgium's prime minister charles michel says there's a chans of a paris-type attack using weapons at several locations. >> the link between attackers and the influx of refugees. once people are in the european union, the schengen zone makes it easy for people to move. it's making life hard for the refugees, many fleeing the syrian war. lawrence lee reports from the border. >> reporter: by now everyone had their say, except the refugees, here they were, 700 in the

5:13 am
everything for every single one of these people. now, the authorities are not only trying to prove whether or not they are legitimate refugees, they are trying to prove whether or not they are part of i.s.i.l. >> saturday marks day one of the new security regime. countries like slovenia will have to do a lot more joined up thinking with the european police agency. yet security specialists think gangs will find ways around the borders if there's money in it. >> some of them find the loophole in the fence, or the smugglers, look how to transport into moscow or italy. or they should use the old way of marco paulo, through ukraine and russia.

5:25 am
reputation of the country. we have seen abdul fatah al-sisi travelling far and wide. i guess not. >> in the regime, it's looking for legitimacy, and they need the elections to prove to the world that they have representation. but did they thing this would lead to legitimacy. the reforms are bad, looking at different aspect of the performance. there's not much among people. it's the parliament reflecting well. the success and legitimacy. it's important for the regime to have elections. it's not the case for the people, which is more important than the outside world. >> thank you for coming. >> thank you very much. >> china accused the u.s. of political provocation with its patrols in the south china sea. vice prime minister made the remarks on the sidelines of the
