and decide like this and like that i really love this i don't like things like soccer because i will bring these ladies are tough and i take their training very seriously. the feel of the floor in the jets in the field or a life. in the most heavily armed country in the world if there's any country that would be experiencing p.t.s.d. it would be a nation that's been at war for four generations al-jazeera explains the reason those drones are there to assist the innocent civilians they exist in off a draw or even they're not firing is them frightening because any moment they can bomb living beneath the drum but this time of al-jazeera.
our assessment right now is it is an isis affiliated group the u.s. says is responsible for the deaths of four american servicemen and. matheson this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up killing spree the group carries out a revenge campaign in a syrian town slaughtering more than a hundred civilians plus. we have to continue the fight against the taleban and against others in order for them to understand they will never be the battle will go on the u.s. has to stay the course against the taliban in afghanistan also. greening of the also contend the insult canceled at a palestinian film festival we'll tell you why.
the u.s. is top general says he believes a group linked to isolate is behind the ambush which killed four soldiers in a news briefing john donne fode the chairman of the china stuff bereaved relatives to be patient as a senate investigation determines how the man died. it is an isis affiliated group and i think what you bring up is what we're dealing with in many places is isis and al qaida. in this case they try to leverage local insurgencies. and connect those local insurgencies globally this is the challenge that we're dealing with and so our initial assessment is these are local tribal fighters that are associated with isis dunford says the u.s. will maintain its military presence in the despite the deaths and at the same time there's more fallout over donald trump's condolence call to the widow of one of the
fallen soldiers but he said johnson says she was i'm good at what she says were insensitive words from the u.s. president when he said the president yes the president. he knew what he sounded up for but he hers anyway. it made me cry because i was very angry at the way the tone of his voice and how he said he couldn't remember my husband they only way he remember my husband name because he told me he had my husband reporting for me and that's when he actually thing led dated. her or him. on one channel or me when i heard many. and that was hurting me the most because if my husband is out here fly into our country and he risked his life for our country why can't you remember his name. he is the founder of mabel a consulting firm on security economic and political issues in this hell region
he's joining us live now from washington d.c. thanks very much for your time why do you think this particular group might have decided to carry out this attack at this point. i don't think it did they had a specific time to choose when to attack but i think when an opportunity comes they will they were on strike and i think it's still unclear if they knew that u.s. forces were present in that area when they conducted the attack or not remains to be seen so the this is they have been conducted previous attacks against nigerian forces and also on the mahdi and. forces on the other side of the border as well as invoking afonso so it's still still we still have to wait and see if i actually knew that the u.s. forces were present there and if they are actually responsible for the answered and
not the al qaeda affiliated militant group the u.s. says that as a result of this is going to step up its actions in the region what do you think it means by that i think what do you mean by that is to to increase their support to local and regional forces and this is sadly engage in in fights and try to hunt down the militant groups. so i think they were going to maintain their policy to provide just supports or rather than engage in combat and fight in operations do you think that they were likely to see more opportunistic attacks like this one as i saw is pressured in both syria and iraq and in other parts. not just from what i saw affiliated groups of other groups we have seen incidents in the area that
taken place not only in remote areas but also against soft targets and the capitals in what i do book enough are so bomb a comb ali and will the militant groups will try to find an opportunity to strike maybe in the air so the threats to remain is there and whenever the opportunity is there they will try to undermine the local and regional forces in addition to to western forces like the u.s. and french operating in the region and just very briefly what do you think the risk is to the civilians in the area these targets are not necessarily always going to be focused on military forces are they. you're right and that's why it's very important to go in forward if the u.s. is going to engage further in the area they have to be really careful on how the
they work with not only local forces but also with local communities to gain door support because we have seen these groups while they are very good at building strong ties with local communities but they are also not afraid to carry exact assassinations against the local individuals and also armed groups who are supporting local and regional and foreign forces in the area and we have seen this many times especially in mali where u.s. and french forces are present good to get your thoughts on this read of the morning thank you very much indeed. u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has made an unannounced visit to iraq to hold talks with prime minister that allow body the meeting follows heightened tension between the two countries about the role of the popular mobilization forces in iraq tell us and has called for the iranian backed militias to be sent home
a body has defended their role there saying they helped to defeat it's been a busy day for tell us in which began with a separate trip to afghanistan i think ohayon has more. despite the fact that he left at the crack of dawn the u.s. secretary of state seemed quite excited from his perch at the front of the c. seventeen a quick and rabbit descent and he landed at begum airfield there to meet the leaders of afghanistan a short visit just about an hour and fifteen minutes and he told the traveling press he was confident in the trump administration's plan for afghanistan over the long term clearly we have to continue the fight against the taliban and against others in order for them to understand they will never win a military victory and there are we believe moderate voices among the taleban voices that do not want to continue to fight forever they don't want their children to fight so we are looking to engage with those voices and have them a gauge in
a reconciliation process leading to peace process and therefore involvement and participation in the government. but this would not be his only trip to a country grappling with conflict in one day traveling to afghanistan and then in the evening iraq i think all differences can be addressed and the rights of all can be respected and iraq will have a very secure that across the future we have a an opportunity to share in an important event in saudi arabia the creation of a coronation council we think this is an important milestone in restoring relationships between iraq and the gulf the g.c.c. countries and saudi arabia is going to lead to very important the. developments in iraq as well one day more than three thousand kilometers all to send a message to the people here in the region and back home that america is committed to staying in the fight both of them. al-jazeera. details are

closing film the lebanese oscar contender the insult but the auditorium is empty the screen a blank space the showing has been banned by the local government then. under the occupation we've resisted all bans we've managed to bypass them or we've been to prison to say what we want to say we always do that there was stop us the insulters said in lebannon charting the escalation of a minor argument between two men of different arab communities into a courtroom battle that fixates a nation and its content isn't the problem the controversy surrounds it's french lebanese director ziad to airy and his decision to shoot his previous film in israel the attack told a story of a palestinian surgeon discovering that his wife has carried out a suicide bombing the b.d.s. movement which campaigns for boycotting divesting from and sanctioning israel says do aries continue defense of his israeli shoot means none of his work should feature at a palestinian film festival if a hollywood filmmaker would come to film in tel aviv we would oppose it very
strongly so imagine a lebanese filmmaker crossing red lines crossing our picket line and coming to film in tel aviv this certainly in french on p.b.s. guidelines and undermines our nonviolent struggle for palestinian rights online opposition to the film has been mounting in recent days including implicit threats denounced by b.d.s. targeting the festival. municipal government decided to ban the screening on grounds of preventing civil unrest we don't believe the film still feels good citizen has the right to see it in his eyes and the side of his life the film is going to definitely we disappointed that we want to stand the fiction that the instability the love was there and while the insult has already won international awards and high critical acclaim. its director is feeling the heat last month he was detained in lebanon and questioned about his twenty twelve film the attack just as his latest work the insult was about to open now that film to
a large extent about the palestinian experience in lebanon has been denied a place here at the most important festival of palestinian film. ramallah. this is al jazeera these are the top stories the u.s. military believes in islington group was behind an ambush that killed four american soldiers in this months earlier the widow of one of the sergeants who died criticized president donald trump for being insensitive joining a condolence phone call it is an isis affiliated group and i think what you're bringing up is what we're dealing with in many places is isis and al qaeda. in this case they try to leverage local insurgencies. and connect those local insurgencies globally this is the challenge that we're dealing with and so our initial assessment is these or local tribal fighters that are associated with isis the u.s.
