fighters is promising a fierce battle against those who entered its territory in syria's italy province. released a statement after the free syrian army the f.s.a. crossed into the area from turkey on saturday is the dominant force in italy brand is made up of several armed factions it includes opposition groups that were pushed into it live after syrian government forces raid took aleppo last december took his soldiers are back in the f.s.a. from the border but they've not yet entered the province. is on the turkey syria border for us this hour what's going on across the border as far as we can tell. p.s. how are we know so funny that the military buildup continues paving the way for what could potentially be one of the biggest military operations to be taken by the turkish military inside syria the free syrian army factions which are going into
1:08 pm
a sort of spearhead of this military operation have crossed into syria and these are basically pro turkey factions now the turkish military is conducting surveillance in the area sharing intelligence gathering where they took over where the free syrian army we don't know what is happening now in the buffer zone or the no man's land area which is why after there are a highly border crossing that's where with things that are free so your army is going to launch its offensive to take on the heavier that hey at the heavy the shan which is the most powerful viable opposition group based in there so just to nail this down for a session this is still a deployment as of yet it is not an actual military operation. it is it is a deployment it is a buildup they still underway waitin for the final decision to start the military campaign but as i said we there are little details that we know so far about this
1:09 pm
whole operation which is basically of the free syrian army is going to take on the hay at the hague shand they need more reinforcements more backing because on their own is absolutely no way that can take on a at the head of the sham which has thousands of very well trained and very well armed fighters across the province of it led by the turkish president others have made this quietly yesterday that this is going to be a serious military campaign for the turkish government when the campaign starts if it starts is one of the key issues here identifying who the rebels are because i mean historically they've always had this revolving door policy almost when it comes. two arms territory and indeed purse people who pledge allegiance to different factions here. you're right because they had to have. a coalition of different groups led by. which was formerly known
1:10 pm
as the north this is a group led by mohammed. the most powerful now rebel commander in. syria the problem for the turkish government for the russians and the iranians is basically a done to apply those who and if the russians decide at a certain stage of this operation to back the free syrian army with the potential for civilian casualties could stoke the ante sentiment and to russian anti turkish sentiment in those areas in which is going to be an extremely delicate operation but that also raises the question of what happens next even if they manage to vector that to. who is going to fill in the void and who's going to take over these are questions that. we have no answers for for the time being. thanks

1:37 pm
had a heavy toll on the people and the economy. prices and living costs have made. the announcement was widely anticipated a process started under president barack obama the u.s. saying the move came after sudan began addressing concerns of fighting terrorism and human rights abuses the sanctions were piling pressure on an already struggling economy. it's true that the country is facing economic problems however the sanctions exacerbated if not complicated the situation it doesn't enable government officials to restructure the economy as it should be. there were also assurances that sudan won't enter into arms deals with north korea and it had already diplomatically distance itself from iran but the opposition feels it's the wrong way to go. and the lifting of sanctions will not bear any fruit it's only into propaganda but in the end it will have a negative impact on the regime simply because it sent out the wrong message to the
