9:03 pm
holes in dairies or city or syrians who've managed to escape to make shift refugee camps now face shortages of food and medicine are reports from hatay on the border between syria and turkey. and civilians have been waiting for years they are being evacuated from fighting iraq are staying home wasn't safe strikes have killed hundreds. in neighboring there also are thousands of syrians flee their homes as fighting intensifies i still fighters have regrouped in a mayor dean a city on the border with iraq before an expected push by syrian kurdish factions known as the to capture the city. north of rock was built to accommodate the internally displaced it's struggling with
9:04 pm
a growing number of refugees who have nowhere to go such as. well has just arrived from the us. we left home because of the farting in there it was a long journey before we got to the camp we spent a long sleepless nights and many days with nothing to eat and they're buried and my daughter is sick and she needs treatment we have been suffering since the start of war in syria kurdish factions control the. very few aid organizations manage to reach the area the camp lacks basic infrastructure services are poor a situation that is likely to worsen during the winter. time and. look at the tents they gave me in this camp i have nothing no cover my sheets nothing i'm a widow and i cannot look after my children on my own they told us go to the camp and you will get help i got nothing from them. many here have lost hope they'll
9:05 pm
never be able to return home to their villages the battles to recover to rock and dealers or have destroyed entire areas defeating i still may not be the end of war in syria as the s.d.f. advances the syrian army is on the move both competing to control more territory the syrian government is determined to recapture areas it lost i sell the rebels and the kurds a confrontation between the kurds and the syrian army may trigger an exodus of thousands of people towards the border with turkey as iraq had time. let's discuss all of this now with guni yield is a fellow at the european council on foreign relations thank you very much for coming in to speak to us so in the last two weeks you were in northern syria and you were in iraq a less than two weeks ago what did you see there i went to the city center where
9:06 pm
isis was surrounded and i saw the. headquarters of isis which was in national hospital building and i've seen that the building was intact it wasn't bombed by strikes because the as the air force assumed that there will be there were civilian civilians inside the place and i was shown a drawing pictures which shows the some of the civilians there were actually free to move around so they were held against their will apparently so that they might be isis the family members of isis fighters and so now we're hearing that a deal is being negotiated by tribal elders to allow the last remaining eisel fighters to leave with with civilians as so-called human shields what more do you know about this what is your assessment of this and. really how quickly is it likely to be wrapped up so isis was largely defeated when i was surrounded and was unable to move in my first day the start of
9:07 pm
a large scale attack to break the feature to them work at the second day they started an attack from outside it didn't work as well but this year forces couldn't move any quicker because they were. reluctant to harm the civilians there today i spoke to the rock a civilian council members who told me that it wasn't them but it was a tribal leaders of dignitaries who have negotiated isis and trying to persuade isis to leave the city with the civilians and to release them when they feel secure and so now that the city has been arrested for myself control what are the challenges in terms of fully securing governing it you know the s.d.f. is a very efficient fighting force i would say the most efficient fighting force on the ground. including the syrian army regime army but the post post-war situation brings with it some other challenges but i've also been to different arab majority towns on the as different or like tel aviv and member and i've seen the
9:08 pm
population of these towns were increasing so people feel secure enough to go back to their old towns actually many tradesmen from other poor moving to the members for example and the security in terms of security there are several security agencies like the s.d.s. there's why p.g. and there is the local police force and intelligence forces and lots of informers does that create some element of confusion and chaos in itself i think the you know the different these different agencies checking on each other and you don't necessarily see lots of people with weapons on the streets you generally for example traffic police officers who don't carry guns but apart from that you don't necessarily see how much communication coordination between them then there's you know the all the different areas on the rest of control is linked to syrian democracy council and there's also an under under underneath that the syrian northern syria democratic federation and the coordination is you know that there are different autonomous areas which are which have
9:09 pm
a coordination body on top of them and security agencies and p.g. and as the of also has the general command but they are also on the local control and of course as we see i still being defeated in terms of the physical territory it holds stary some very complex geopolitical and tunnel syrian dynamics around fighting forces like the s.d.f. but it isn't just them do you see this causing do you see the risk of more tensions renewed clashes as perhaps the white fiji's. territory expands i mean the from now on the main issue would be you know we have the free syrian army diminished didn't. cannot control a lot of space isis is being removed from the picture so we have on the ground as stiff the syrian army so the next thing will be we need to look at whether deuce two groups will negotiate peacefully or we might see some flashpoints clashes
9:10 pm
and some arab tribes sunni even sunni arab tribes might want to come back and some others joined with a city of strongly against the regime so you know it's a pretty president it's a situation we'll see whether she can rule out that there will be clashes with the regime and. clearly a yield is from the european council on foreign relations thank you well in other developments syria is demanding an immediate and unconditional withdrawal of turkish troops from northwest syria saying their presence there amounts to flagrant aggression turkish troops entered syria's northern province in a cross border deployment that began two days ago or than one hundred troops in twenty armored vehicles of crossed the border to join troops who are already inside syria they were inspected by turkey's top general before advancing into to enforce a so-called deescalation zone. well thousands of iraqi troops are locked in an armed standoff with kurdish forces in the disputed oil province of kirkuk and the
9:11 pm
kurdish peshmerga fighters say iraq's central government has ordered them to surrender key military positions within hours they've been given a deadline of two a.m. local time on sunday brief clashes also erupted between kurdish forces and shia militia backing the iraqi government tensions have been on the rise since kurds held a referendum on independence last month which the iraqi government said was illegal traffic has more from the west of kirkuk. we are at the western most peshmerga position from kirkuk and the tension here is frankly palpable ali to zoom out behind me there you'll be able to see the smoke on the background those are shia militia tanks kicking up that dust the peshmerga commander here says that around fifty tanks in that area you might ever see vehicles with flags on as well those. vehicles again shia militia armored vehicles those vehicles have moved up
9:12 pm
that road one would think around about one hundred yards in the last few minutes and as i say the peshmerga here are very nervous indeed they're also telling us that the pressure sorry the shia militias have approached from another direction on this position i mean as we've been reporting as the k r g has said around six thousand at least six thousand forces have been deployed to they say area and the area south of care cook these guys are basically would not be surprised if there was an attack at any time it's over see important to again reiterate just how important this area is around kirkuk this area was taken by the peshmerga taken control of by the peshmerga in two thousand and fourteen when the iraqi military fled and isolate fence of these peshmerga here the commander we've just spoken to says this is purely a defensive position but they are not going to with rule any any further back.
9:13 pm
my mentor other top story this hour two bomb attacks in separate parts of the somali capital mogadishu have killed at least twenty two people and caused widespread destruction the first explosion was a massive truck bomb targeting an area where many government offices hotels and restaurants are located at least eight people are still trapped under the rubble of a hotel and they fear the death toll could rise paul brennan reports. when the truck arrived at the busy intersection known locally as k. five it was a traffic jam dozens of motorists stuck in their cars hundreds of bystanders too and so the explosion caused carnage but i shall not uncover couldn't i have come out this was the biggest explosion i have ever heard the car exploded at the center of the busiest junction in mogadishu because huge destruction and some more than twenty dead people around the street and there may be more than that in the collapsed buildings i myself and honestly i've never seen

a scene like this ever before all the buildings around here have collapsed there were close to two hundred people in these buildings i hope everyone is ok ok five is in a bustling commercial district of mogadishu with many shops hotels and businesses the blast happened outside the safari hotel not normally used by government workers and so it's not clear whether the hotel itself was the intended target or possibly the somali foreign ministry nearby it's emerged too that the police were actually following the truck at the time of the explosion come over two hours after the truck bomb blast a car bomb detonated in the city's medina district two people were killed there and the driver arrested the group al-shabaab frequently launches gun grenade or bomb attacks in mogadishu despite being forced from the capital six years ago by african union and somali troops the own going threat is a constant worry for many somalis paul brennan al jazeera.

9:22 pm
thirty one year old sebastian kurtz that is expected to win the most votes what have you been seeing there in terms of rallies and support for the different parties. miami is being very interesting here that there are so many issues a could have been discussed so many important issues in this run up to the election on sunday things like the debts for students the overall debt of the country unemployment taxes but actually what's happened is because this is a fight between the center right and the hard right the issues have coagulated if i might use that term around the the one point about immigration immigration and immigration that's what this whole fight has been about but i've been gauging the views and looking at exactly what's been happening in the the last of the rallies before the election starts tomorrow morning let's have
9:23 pm
a look. so bastion kurtz's called the austrian politics wonder of what see at thirty one he may be short on years but he's long on and vision of this t.v. broadcast with you people's party shows his eyes are set firmly on the chance that . the polls put it well ahead but he's done it by poaching some of the policies of the far right. i can also promise today that we will end illegal migration to achieve order and security in austria. it's the freedom party led by heinz christian structure that could be drawn into a new right wing coalition with the chancellor they draw their support from a working class educated by the waves of immigration. struck has said his near nazi
9:24 pm
links and hughes could now be dismissed he described himself then as stupid and naive you. know islam does not belong in austria and we do not want an islamic nation of our own homelands i think something needs to change it. australia it's either very strong to the left over very strong to the right and the middle needs to come back the middle class is missing. a ban on face veils came into effect here this month but opinion was divided amongst worshipers at friday prayers at the piano about what life might be like i don't you right wing coalition. from the right in this trouble and no i'm afraid to be living in a country where the women are suppressed because of the headscarf or what they are wearing their exteriors and i am afraid of that as i want to become a dr. king was to militant i mean the muslims are mature voters and we do not feel well let's protect them before australia has been largely successful in integrating
9:25 pm
its muslim minority but the islamophobia card is being played in this election and it's winning votes. the changing political landscape in australia is likely to add to the problems of the german chancellor angela merkel she will no longer find natural allies in government here. i'm picking up on the point that you're making there david if this right wing coalition goes as predicted what effect will it have on the european union. well i think after we saw the victory of man your macro from the center pushing the values of the european union and defeating the far right and marine le pen and the national front in that election extraordinary way there were hopes that there could be rebirth of the ideas for reform in the european union then of course we saw in the wake of the german elections the hard right entering the bundestag for the first time since the second world war so that
9:26 pm
really has set back all of these plans to try and reform the european union and now we're looking like we're going to get a right wing hard right wing coalition form a neo nazi in in that coalition perhaps even as the foreign minister and that will mean that angela merkel can no longer look on austria for immediate support and all the problems that she's been having with the wave of immigration and the refugees coming into europe and it's more likely that the foreign policy of austria will be geared towards the east towards poland and towards hungry those of the troubling twins for the european union they're the ones that haven't been behaving and they're being brought up before the courts because they're not following the e.u. rules and i think that we're going to see austria looking their way much more than they used to which was to try and help anglo merkel so i think this is going to put another obstacle another hurdle in the way of macro and merkel's ideas for
9:27 pm
reforming for each changing for reinvigorating the european union and that is going to be the main problem with this right wing coalition thank you very much david chaytor following all these developments for us there from the anna. now the academy of motion picture arts and sciences which organizes the oscars is carney holding an emergency meeting to discuss harvey weinstein's membership the movie mogul has already been suspended by the british academy of film and television this after he was accused of sexual harassment and rape by more than two dozen women including actresses angelina jolie. and rose mcgowan police in the u.k. and the u.s. are investigating the allegations which mr weinstein denies. bring you still this hour iran's president says donald trump's threat to tear up the nuclear deal leaves the u.s. more isolated than ever to bring you reaction from tech crunch. asia's biggest film

president donald trump's threat to tear up the iran nuclear deal has drawn criticism from international leaders russia china and european governments of all reaffirmed their support for the agreement iran's president hassan rouhani says the united states is isolating itself on the international stage and causing anger in teheran same bus romney has more on the reaction from iran. well most people will have seen the political theater the night before on their smartphones in iran newsstands are still a great place to get a check of the political atmosphere and the morning after divergent speeches from the presidents of the united states and iran headline writers had a lot to play with trump save the nuclear deal says one illiterate dictator says another and this one simply he's just nagging truman was awful you don't go i think the way he spoke was very rude and i don't think that it's possible to have any relations with the u.s. as long as he's president and that's a lot of money. in my opinion we shouldn't even talk about trauma because what he
9:33 pm
said was totally meaningless from a legal perspective it was unwise nonsense but. from a political point of view he knows nothing at all he's not a politician he's just a very rich businessman who sits at the top of power now he can't make political decisions properly for the future of the country i think response wasn't bad but he should have been tougher we need to really stand up against the u.s. so it would stop them thinking that they can dictate what ever they want us. iranian say trumps comments about their country are not only inaccurate but attacks against their national pride the american president has been trying to paint a picture of iran as a country living under one man rule a kind of dictatorship and while it is true that iran has a supreme leader who presides over the country the fact is he doesn't always get what he wants this country has elected officials who have a great deal of power there's a president there's a parliament and they have elections every four years and that means that public opinion really matters and no doubt public opinion is
9:34 pm
a concern for iran's leaders hammad mousavi is a professor of law and political science at the university he says when the nuclear deal was signed there was great optimism but government promises of jobs and foreign investment haven't been kept so even before this whole trump issue from the u.a.e. inside you have this disillusionment from the nukes. if things get worse then i think there would be very little incentive from the u.n. inside to you know keep up with this deal with the nuclear deal improved iran's public image on the global stage but here at home iranians are growing impatient to see its benefits zain bus robbi old jersey wrote to her on. a team of east african foreign ministers in south sudan trying to revive a failed peace agreement for more than two years ago fighting resumed soon after the deal was signed in august two thousand and fifteen millions of people have been displaced in the four year civil war and more than half of the population is struggling for food ever morgan reports now from juba the ministers arriving in

9:37 pm
a negotiating table and that's that may prove more difficult as more armed groups have emerged and they very much was signed. the government has made it clear that it isn't going to start a new peace process to include those new groups there is a limit to what i get can do at the end of the day the south sudanese would have. to bring peace to their own country nobody can make them the only thing that they've got and any other international party can do is to facilitate and bring them together. various groups who are in disagreement so that and how much out there are disagreements those disagreements have caused the lives of countless hours to the nice people i guess the magic effort is intended to end the suffering but ultimately it's up to the wording fashion's to put their guns down people morgan al-jazeera jubal provisional results from liberia's election show former football star george where is comfortably in the lead so far where has the nine point two percent while his nearest challenger vice president joseph barca is on
