7:11 pm
former interior minister is how. the law minister nation the people have demanded being attacked and of course that the government in all sorts of trouble. thank you heidi that bringing us the latest from the unrest in pakistan. mammal have agreed to take assistance from the united nations refugee agency to safeguard the repass ration of hundreds of thousands every hinge of muslims the two governments signed a pact on thursday settling terms for the repatch reaction process which is expected to begin within two months under the new deal the henge of attorneys will be moved to temporary camps while so-called model villages are constructed near their former homes may also plans to issue them with an identity card on their return although most have so far we jacked the scheme child stuff it has more from cox it's bizarre
7:12 pm
it's impossible to imagine the level of suffering that people like these have endured over recent months and indeed for decades now stories of men women and children being killed by the myanmar army also stories of gang rape being committed by soldiers in the myanmar army stories that the myanmar government denies now this agreement between the bangladeshi and the myanmar government with respect to repress relation implies the eventual return of these people to a country that they have some sort of legal citizenship status but of course they don't they lost their citizenship thirty five years ago in one thousand nine hundred eighty two and it's when you speak to people here. but you really get a sense of the fear and a lack of trust amongst them by saying that they are not prepared to go back until their property is rebuilt and they get some sort of formal legal citizenship status
7:13 pm
. hasn't seen her husband since she fled a month ago. on our first they have to give us identity cards at the border stating that we are residents all citizens and that we are. otherwise we will not go in because they may start killing us again. also says his home and village was destroyed and he is terrified about returning to live like that and they wanted out of him we don't want to leave bangladesh back home we're afraid to leave our houses they kill us they take our people away we don't want to go back i'm going to deny that. according to the bangladesh government there's no fixed time frame as to how long this repatriation will take it's hope that the process will start in about two months time the bangladesh foreign minister also says that myanmar has agreed that the u.n. h.c.r. the un will be involved in the process and it's aiming to set up temporary camps so
7:14 pm
people like these can live in the areas in which their homes were destroyed but the two main issues when you speak to the people here are issues of trust trust of the military and secondly citizenship will they eventually become citizens of the country for so long for so many generations they have called child strife and al-jazeera culture is bizarre. still to come on al-jazeera a small town in papua new guinea takes in hundreds of refugees from a close to australian camp but there's no guarantee of a warm welcome and going underground doctors in northern syria work in secret to treat wounded civilians from strikes.

7:19 pm
inclusive people but others have concerns about hundreds of men from very different cultures certainly living among them. is just men only and they do that when they come on ladies we find if we don't related needs on a big. issue did they don't feel the need of a having a leader. and then they may cause a problem with the local leadership that's not concerned though that necessarily leads to hostility walking around this market in daytime fails to meet a pretty sight but then i'm only here for a short time and i'm not a refugee from the middle east africa or south asia or things they say very different some refugees chose to leave the prison and move to laura months even two years ago to keep occupied such hussein works as a receptionist in the guest house but he's not paid refugees aren't allowed paid work and despite being much better integrated the most he says the town for refugees isn't safe one month there will be
7:20 pm
a good anyway if you deny on my neck the. port up or. if i didn't you would be. many refugees have similar stories drunk young men attack them among the locals most have sympathy for the refugees but think it's time they move on or were moved on there's a billboard they belong to a different girl to a different world for a long woods. for years you still have one when. the refugees feel the same way andrew thomas al-jazeera one man assigned in papua new guinea iran's president has done rouhani has told syrian president bashar al assad in a phone call that iran will stand by the syrian people and the government in the fight against terrorism and reconstruction efforts iranian media is reporting rouhani told his syrian counterpart that talks to leaders summit in sochi was the
7:21 pm
right step at the right time for the future of syria it comes as iran russia and turkey held a trilateral meeting at a summit this week or a major diplomatic push was made to end the war in syria. turkey says it expects u.s. president donald trump to stick to his promise not to supply weapons to syria and kurdish fighters also known as the y.p. . on friday turkish president. held a phone call with truong in which the u.s. president reportedly gave an order that weapons should no longer be supplied to the white p.t. the white house later issued a statement only saying it would quote make adjustments to its policy of arming allies in syria the trump administration began supplying weapons to their wipe e.g. earlier this year before the battle to retake eyesores stronghold of iraq or turkey considers the y p g a terrorist group.
7:22 pm
one subject that negatively impacts our relationship with the us is the weapons that it's given to the y. p.g. lately we've seen that some armored vehicles have been supplied and our esteemed president once again reiterated his discomfort to mr trump mr trump clearly stated that he had given clear instructions that the white won't be given arms and that this nonsense should have ended a long time ago of course we were very happy with this doctors in northern syria are being forced underground because a frequent attacks on hospitals one facility has been built entirely below the surface at a secret location to treat patients injured by government strikes as i'm going to write reports in gaziantep syria's border with turkey. farmers on the operating table because his leg was injured in an airstrike but this is no ordinary operation theatre it's hidden underground so it's been filled by air raids. i'm afraid when the regime targets a hospital and lost
7:23 pm
a member of my family in an airstrike. it's known as the cave hospital in northern three 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 is. just one of the main challenges has to do with witnessing. going for a long time but at the same time it 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 frequent rooms workers then plaster the walls and 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
7:24 pm
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 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
7:25 pm
