administrative buildings, holds the city. >> translator: yes, ramadi is now a free city. the hero of armed forces have put the iraqi flag over the government complex in el anbar. >> reporter: but as much as there is to celebrate for these forces, this neighborhood is just one area. i.s.i.l. still remains in downtown ramadi. in the north, iraqi forces haven't been able to cross the euphrates river. the recapture of ramadi is a boost to iraq's much criticized army whose presence here crumbled when i.s.i.l. moved into too much of the city. it is also the first battle that the iraqi army has fought without the direct support of the popular mobilization forces also known as shia militia. won't predict when the forces will completely take over ramadi but these soldiers have cleared

4:04 pm
there is still a lot of work ahead of us. this enemy is still dug in very deeply in portions of iraq. they still have a capability to fight. they still have a capability to do harm. so this is going to take time. >> syrian state television says 19 people have been killed in a twim bombing attack itwin bombiy of homs. people gathered to inspect the damage another 100 people were also wounded. a british based activist group has given a higher death toll of 32 people. now buses and ambulances have carried some 450 fighters and civilians out of three besieged town in syria and turkey and lebanon. on zabadani, a group of of rebels and their families have been under siege by government forces for months, now they have
4:05 pm
been allowed out of the area, to go to lebanon. there civilians trapped have been given a safe route to turkey, from there they will travel on to beirut. similar agreements in homs and yarmouk, though this last deal is on hold after the killing of a powerful rebel leader on friday. hashem ahelbarra has the story. >> wounded fighters and their families cross into lebanon from syria. the end of months of anxiety and uncertainty about their future. they were trapped in zabadani near the lebanese border. the city has been the focal point of intense fighting but after a serious of se series ofe
4:06 pm
rebilitierebels lost most of ite army. the final destination is unclear. there could be sent to refugee camps on the border with syria or moved to areas under opposition control inside the country. also, as part of the deal, shia militia fighters were given safe passage out of small towns in northern syria. these pro-government fighters were evacuated to turkey. it is the first leg in a journey that will take them to lebanon and then syria's capital which is still largely a stronghold of president bashar al-assad. this complex movement of people was made possible because of a deal brokered by iran and turkey. it's seen as a significant development in a country battered by more than four years
4:07 pm
of violence. the united nations hopes this deal will create some level of trust between the government and the rebels, ahead of a crucial meeting in geneva flex month. there is a growing sentiment that no party can decisively win this awa war in syria and a compromise may be the only way to bring an end to this phase of the conflict. hashem ahelbarra, al jazeera, southern turkey. joining me in the studio is a military analyst and former jordajordanian. fighter. how significant is this that the iraqis won this battle? >> it is a good victory. there again their confidence is back, raise their morale back also. but they have a lot of work to did especially in the north and eastern part of ramadi. ramadi is a huge area and it's
4:08 pm
going to take i could say a month. so i'll be very dieferl sa carey it's a full victory. >> i'm guessing from what you're saying many winning and keeping it are two different things. what are the two things that need to be put in place in order for ramadi to stay as it has? >> you have to clean it all from i.s.i.l. and i think they have to secure it well by using these local police and the sunni people, also make use of militia sunni people, what makes it significant or a good victory is they did not let what they call the shia militia to participate in such an attack or this campaign. so that's played the whole campaign had this sort of local support for the elite of the army forces from iraq. so that's an portion of that, a
4:09 pm
way for such an attack and they did well. and i think there's some advisor or some targetees for the air power, from the american, i don't know about the shia -- >> i was going to ask you is there a combination of factors that came together to made this small victory happen. >> yes, i think it was a good campaign and showed that one used the air power probably and you have the boots on the ground, things will work out well for you. >> can this sort of victory be replicated do you think in other places in iraq? >> no. mosul is a different battle. if you are talking about mosul. because baiji, tikrit, these are different battle also. they need to prepare for it also, resources and plans to get mosul back. which is going to be a long war i guess. also, there is -- you cannot separate syria strategy concerning i.s.i.l. and the iraq
4:10 pm
strategy because you have got this raqqa and darazur the center of power of i.s.i.l, very brutal mobile force, have this tactical surprise mosul most of the time, be careful increase intelligence, they're doing this drawn business now to get more info for another battle. >> let's talk about syria. we have seen syria, bosses leaving, how has that changed the reality on the ground? >> this goes for assad, they are removing the opposition around certain areas of damascus and other area, the use for syria what they call in the future, best also i think the russian, i think that, it is also a
4:11 pm
demographic cleansing if i could say it, based on sectarian geography. you want to separate it and this also useful for the useful syria also. so i don't know. there is two option was, either they keep killing these people, surround them, or they let them go on you know, on this demographic assault, saving people life i think so i don't blame them if they do. but these things are temporary thing, this local fire doesn't work out very well, or you could base on it for future peaceful settlement. >> thank you very much for joining us, mamun, thank you for your thoughts. >> thank you. thank you. >> secretary of state john kerry says iran has started fulfilling its deal with the six countries. more than 11,000 kilograms of
4:12 pm

4:13 pm
that allowed for iran to basically displant l its nuclear arms program, suspected nuclear arms program, under the nuclear nonproliferation treaty which is to use its nuclear power for medical purposes to provide energy for iranian people. when they get to the point where one, th the international atomic energy agency has reduced th sas reduced the stockpile under the terms of the agreement, that is when the international community can go ahead and start with the removal of sanctions against iran because of its previous suspected nuclear weapons activities. >> and roz, when this deal was announced it was very controversial, wasn't it?
4:14 pm
i wonder if the doubters back there will see this as progress? >> well, we haven't had any initial reaction here in the united states. but i would suspect that there's going to be a real question about whether iran indeed has gotten rid of all of the questionable material that it was required to remove under the terms of the jcpoa. there is skepticism about whether the iaea is actually going to have all of the access and all of the monitoring tombs that it will need in order -- tools that it will need in order to verify iran's nuclear activities. there's also going to be the question about whether the iranians are in -- while they're in the process of doing this work, are doing anything that might violate if not actual letter of the jcpoa, at least the spirit of the jcpoa. there is i would imagine going to be some skepticism about just how compliant the iranians are being in terms of this deal.
4:15 pm
what you don't hear though in john kerry's statement which was released a couple of hours ago on monday is whether the u.s. is ready to go ahead and lift its own sanctions sooner rather than later. we've heard messages from the iranian government that they think that this could happen as soon as in january. but we are not hearing from u.s. officials that any relief if the sanctions would be happening that quickly. >> rosiland jordan there joining me from washington, d.c. roz thank you. still to come this newshour. japan and south korea reach an agreement to compensate the women used as world war ii sex slaves. in kabul, a suicide car bomb. and. in sports, struggle against england.

4:17 pm
video from the security cameras does appear to show tamir rice reaching for his waste banlt but hohis waistband, theofficers pum within 1 seconds of arriving on the scene. that's what prompted the huge outcry across the country, at the time when activists were already protesting the use of force against black men and young black men in particular in this country. but mcginty said while what what happened was a tragedy it wasn't a crime. >> as the law applies to police use of deadly force, the grand jury declined to bring charges against timothy lowman and anthony garnbeck. simply put, the use of force by all that day the evidence did not indicate criminal conduct by
4:18 pm
police. >> well ci kristin, how did the family respond? >> they said they were sad and disappointed but not surprised. the pace of the investigation and the action he of the prosecutor in this case, they say he's hired experts who were there to exonerate the officers not prosecute them. experts who ruled that the officers were justified in the use of force in this case and those reports were given to the press and released publicly before they went to the grand jury. they were critical of that. they've been critical of the fact that the officers were allowed to present written statements to the grand jury and not have to answer questions. they say that they are going to renew their calls for the federal justice department to investigate the case on their own. they also are suing the city of cleveland and the officers in a civil suit.

cleveland of course has had a long history of accusations of aggressive policing and in may, cleveland entered ininto an agreement with the federal justice department in order to reform the department. but clearly the family is not resting and hoping the justice department will do more for the case of their son. >> kristin saloomey joining us, thank you. japanese prime minister shinzo abe has apologize for the second war policies of forcing thousands of women to be sex slaves for soldiers. an issue that has long soured relations. tokyo is paying $8.3 million the to the victims for compensation. victoria gatenby has the story. >> the victims have waited 70 years for an apologize from japan. it finally came from japanese

4:36 pm
saudi arabia has announced plans to cut spending and seek new sources of revenue after the drop in oil prices hit the economy. saudi revenues fell by 50% to $162 billion in 2015 mainly the result of a 23% drop in income from oil. overall spending meanwhile rose to $260 billion, fueled in part by the saudi military intervention in yemen. as a result the first saudi budget under king salman revealed a deficit of $238 billion. council says the country has enough reserves to go through this period of low oil prices. >> oil is the main, 80 to 90% of the government income comes from oil. that is true. but oil prices are down. oil since it was used commercially, 100 years ago, until today, goes through
4:37 pm
cycles. through many-year cycles. are price of war is inelastic, demand wise and supply wise so it takes a long time for it to move. $140 a barrel was not stainable. $30 a barrel is still not sustainable. it's going to change. >> well the price of oil now is just a third of what it was in the middle of last year in june 2014 brent crude was selling at $130 a barrel, now it's selling at $37. now some experts predict it could drop to $20 a barrel if production continues on the same rate. joining us in the studios is dr. mamdu salome. why have we had the drop in oil prices and who's to blame? >> the main reason is the glut
4:38 pm
in the market and contrary to common wisdom, the glut is not caused by the u.s. shale production. it's coughed by members of polkc themselves. they are producing 2.2 above their ceiling of 30 million barrels which they agreed upon last june. >> why do they keep producing then, if it cuts the price? >> because saudi arabia is opec and saudi arabia is dominant power inside opec. saudi arabia did not want to reduce production and of course without saudi arabia no reduction by poik will be opec e profitable. consequently that is the situation we are facing. the price, in my opinion, could go down even to $30 a barrel,
4:39 pm
without cuts by saudi arabia and opec. >> so if the answer is as obvious as cutting production, forgive me in my 95 take, why not just cut production -- in my nignaivete, why not cuss production? >> i think logic there is flawed and i tell yu you why. the countries that can take seub saudi and opec market share are russia and 11 million barrel, the biggest in the world, number 1. and with that, russia is focusing only now on china, which is the biggest importing,
4:40 pm
energy importing country. so russia is out. the u.s. shale oil production is in a very bad situation. they lost 600,000 barrels in 2015 and they are projected to lose another 900,000 next year at current prices. >> does the picture change at all if we take iran into consideration? >> no, it will not. because contrary to what western media is saying, the lifting of the sanctions on iran will hardly have any impact on oil prices and the global oil market. and i tell you why: because according to the international energy agency in paris, iran needs 3 to 5 years to repair the damaged reservoirs in its oil industry, damaged since the days of the shah when iran was
4:41 pm
producing 6 million barrels, then came the war with iraq then came the sanctions and they didn't have the investment to do it. iran needs 200 billion to develop its oil production. in this climate of low oil price it's virtually impossible for iran to get even a small fraction of that investment. so iran can add 300 o500,000 to0 barrels bringing it back to 3.2 which it was producing before. >> we'll watch as see what happens. thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you, thank you. >> al jazeera has gained rare access to one of the most dangerous migration routes in the world. through the eyes of the people directly involved migrants must travel through san pedro sula
4:42 pm

4:43 pm
on an exhausting journey from san pedro sula honduras, hopping on and off crowded buses picking up more clients. he needs to get into mexico and there's only one way. this is where the road ends and the river begins. the migrants arrive in small taxis and buses, and then they climb into these small boats here, which will take them down the river. hondurans, guatemalans, salvadorans. >> a gang got into my house robbed everything, beat up my dad and my cousins and even raped my mother. >> heading into more danger. mexican cartels are infamous for kidnappings extorting and
4:44 pm
killing migrants. the only sure way through is paying them off. >> the federal police take at least $120. migration is $30, to enter the state, the matamoros would pay them $750 per person. >> it is a booming business focused on exposing the resume they have. mexico's tight fling of the southern border means the chance he of getting through without a guide are slimmer than ever. but even paying the six to $7,000 the people smugglers demand doesn't guarantee you safety. >> a year ago i brought a group of young women about 16 to 17 years old and all of them got raped. i paid them money and they raped all those girls anyway. >> from the boat these migrants are hurried into cattle trucks and that is how they go into mexico. an industry which sees them as

pure profit. john holman, el naranho guatemala. >> now for a look at this year's most significant stories, one year five families, about a rohingya family forced out of myanmar. myanmar say the rohingya are refugees from bangladesh. it is estimated that 20,000 rohingya fled both bangladesh, all four countries agreed to eventually agreed to offer them temporary refuge. many were stranded at sea for days. al jazeera's step vaessen visited one family who made the decision to leave myanmar. >> for rosea begam it's been a year of narrow escapes. since the 16-year-old survived, two boat journeys. we managed to find her at her

4:47 pm
family again. now she has gone. i'm heartbroken. i'm so sad. >> reporter: the siblings had tried to leave indonesia together. but aman was betrayed by his smugglers and abandoned. rosea was abandoned when a smuggler abandoned her at sea. >> i could not eat for two days after this. i was so afraid we were going to die. >> the story of rosea and aman is the story of a birth future. the journey has given them some kind of safety but new uncertainties. a journey that has only just begun. rosea regrets leaving indonesia. she now lives as an undocumented immigrant in indonesia. she married a friend in indonesia. >> it's been a very long journey
