attack on a mosque on friday president of the fact that al sisi has promised to respond with what he calls brutal force a bomb was detonated in the mosque and the attackers then fired on as they fled i'm a judge and reports. the bomb and gun attack happened during friday prayers at the other old a mosque in be in egypt's northern sinai peninsula local sources say the attackers planted explosives and then opened fire on worshippers while the sermon was underway. for. oh it looks like it was. not really clear this motive was i know it's early yet. but it's very possibly. they have targeted sudanese in the costs are not including you know neither your. president i'm going to put that has sisi convened an emergency meeting of security officials has that had this these tragic event act of
10:03 am
terrorism will make us more robust more strong of a battle against terrorism. we cannot be intimidated i will result cannot be dented we will remain more united following this event the army will take revenge and they will restore order and security with an iron fist in the following days. egyptian forces have for years battled armed groups in the country's rugged and remote sinai peninsula attacks on security forces have been frequent like this car bomb explosion the targeted a police station in a largish in two thousand and fifteen. fighting between isis. for years now. as shock sets in and an investigation begins the egyptian government has declared three days of mourning. now there's been unrest in egypt's sinai peninsula for
10:04 am
decades bedouin tribes in the region don't trust the government there is anger at cairo's failure to address poverty and unemployment and when president mohamed morsy was deposed in two thousand and thirteen beit responded with violence the armed group aligned with eiseley year later calling itself sinai province and took control of a large part of the region i mean isn't it says a professor of political science at long island university she says the attack is part of an ongoing cycle of violence. terrorist organizations such as isis or whether it's the isis officer that is in egypt or in sort of right to left us have tried to be strategically attacked those that are seen as in collusion with the state not just the security apparatus not just the police and the military but now they are attacking individuals who are seen to be those cooperating with the state
10:05 am
and so we're seeing happening today is by virtue of attacking a mosque a shrine much like the attacks of the coptic church these terrorist groups and of course we they have yet to claim responsibility for them seem to be attacking anyone who is in collusion with the state and so that is leading to a new strategic behavior within this terrorist group which is they will actually attack all civilians and to attack a mosque at the height of a congregants coming together on a friday means that anyone all civilian populations now are part of the game for this terrorist group so these armed groups for example and celebrate the luck this and where they had sinai have garnered more strength in this day since to two thousand and three military coup that removed egypt's first democratically elected leader and historically when the regime would crack down on for example between two thousand and four and two thousand and six attacks on tourists it would lead to
10:06 am
mass arrests torture and no trials and so you saw the beginning of fomenting of a cycle of violence of state repression targeting these groups through arbitrary arrests leading to them fomenting a cycle of violence. turkey says u.s. president donald trump has agreed to stop supplying weapons to kurdish y p g fighters in northern syria this followed a phone call between trump and take as president. the white house later said it would make adjustments to its policy of arming its allies in syria the trump administration began supplying weapons to the y.p. this year before the battle to retake isis stronghold of raka turkey considers the y.p. g a terrorist group its pictures some of injury he joins us from gaza into near the turkish syrian border seem to be a little bit of conflict then the lines coming out from turkey and the white house
10:07 am
what is it. well jane as you've heard most things that have come out of this white house there has been clarifications and then and then more afterwards what the turkish media has been interpreting as a promise to end support for the way that is arming them has not been the case in both the statement from the president of the guns office as well as the white house and as you said this very carefully worded statement says that there will be an adjustment to the policy towards allies in the region after the fall of ice and. we know from the turkish military that the weapons supplies and the not just weapons but logistics supplies for they why p.d. and the p.k. k. which is an agreed by extension is a part of why p.g. has continued this month so yes there have been promises in the past there seems to be some sort of reproach in the deteriorating relations between turkey and the
10:08 am
united states president saying in the phone conversation but that does not seem to be reflected in the statement that we saw from the white house and turkish military leaders are still concerned that the united states would not actually live up to its promises to stop supporting the y.p. and kurdish militias in the north of turkey which is on the no not. syria rather on the turkish border and when it happens when it comes to the fighting we hear that attacks are continuing people surviving. but in the fighting has continued and the government jets have been targeting not just aleppo countryside but how much countryside is well as they try and consolidate their support going after opposition targets and groups who are scattered in these areas and people have been trying to adopt i mean there it is the onset of winter so you you see people trying to pick up as much as they can to try and survive the harsh nights as well as doing other things that they can and when these attacks continue
10:09 am
in what we've seen in the opposition area especially according to doctors without borders is that there's been a systematic attack on health care and for many of these people many of the doctors who are trying to provide help to people on the ground they have no other option but to go on the ground. cameras on the operating table because his leg was injured in an airstrike but this is northern area operation theatre it's hidden underground so it will survive. i'm afraid when the regime targets a hospital i lost a member of my family in an airstrike. it's known as the cave hospital in northern thirty doctors are keeping its location secret for fear of further attacks by government get. they showed us photos after some of the hundred thirty five year strikes targeted their hospital medical facilities and medical workers nowadays are far from being working an ideal situation there are all sort of challenges one of
10:10 am
the main challenges has to do with witnessing not only going for a long time but at the same time he doesn't. doesn't stop. this is what remains of many hospitals above ground so it took months of digging five hundred square meters in the mountains to convert into treatment rooms workers then plaster the bags at the entrance increased security. this is the doctor who began the project he was also killed in an airstrike last year and his colleagues continue to face challenges. the biggest problem is the airstrikes which target civilians this hospital is theoretically safe but we expect anything from the government and it's destructive weapons making the hospital safe is just one of the many challenges most hospitals in opposition areas suffer from a lack of medicine and other vital supplies that are to emergency exits in case of
10:11 am
any attack being underground brings the constant challenge of maintaining the floor so doctors and patients don't suffocate. we face difficulties such as ventilation and shortages of medical supplies after securing ourselves in a cave inside a mountain because health care system has been largely destroyed by six years of war preventive care units and health centers are nonexistent potentially fatal diseases are common because of a lack of vaccine. healthcare is being used as a weapon of war in syria doctors say targeting hospitals means denial of treatment and the only option to save lives is going on the ground from a job without the fear of. syria's main saudi backed opposition group has selected a new chief negotiator nasser hariri will lead the high negotiations committee in your own back talks in geneva next week he succeeds riyadh he job who resigned last week the group is insisting president bashar al assad leave office he really says

just over twenty percent in the last year the violence observatory responsible for monitoring violent deaths says there's a number of reasons why among them the dismantling of drug cartels and increasing the security budget and reform of the police force the government says one of the reasons there's been a fall in the number of violent deaths is because of army and police patrols like this one in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country. but here on the outskirts of some of the most dangerous city in the country says she lives in fear and doesn't believe the government's claims of success. is always kidnappings violent killings it's difficult for us to talk about this there are repercussions of violence hasn't reduced although the numbers are down critics say policing remains sporadic and people still live in fear that. it's costly to keep troops

permanently the areas are very. large and many are still controlled by criminals. and the targeted killings continue in recent days the bodies of three political activists were found but government supporters say improvement needs to be measured over the long term. the murder rate is still six times larger than the world average the situation is still critical but the poll things must be sustainable to show the population but this is the way to repress crime. for now a signal is being sent to the gangs that change is happening in the us and the children have a right to play in peace but the innocent just are just some. us at least three hundred seventy eight migrants have been rescued in libya after three boats were damaged in the mediterranean sea the mission carried out by the libyan coast guard took about seventy two hours the u.n. says more than thirty three thousand migrants have died at sea trying to reach
