civilians have been displaced in rebel held province in recent weeks but instead of finding safety many continue to face danger. no law no let up well we know what to do that's not there i don't know the fate of freedom but if they're there if you know law. but there will be a rock this al jazeera crew was filming in a makeshift camp ended when an attack happened they tell us a missile hit very close to civilians who had escaped earlier bombing attacks in the nearby hammer conscious side al jazeera correspondent milan file can be seen among men women and children desperately trying to find cover and i gauge it says
say they're overwhelmed by the scale of need in syria and they're warning that if the bombardment continues a million displaced people will amass at the turkish border so then costello reports. up to your email had lost his home when the syrian government bombed an assistant hama in december he arrived in ram a refugee camp in l a province fifteen days ago with his wife and five children the fifteen year old farmer's things he had very good business back home but he had to leave it all behind the family went to st george first taking refuge in a cave but the safety they found there didn't last for long government forces were advancing on the area abdel and his wife say they were afraid of being killed and i'm not happy i'm not used to living right this here you don't feel free we are sleeping with our children one now we were hiding in a cave with the regime forces of pants towards our lads we were afraid they would
kill us and left them and after the bombardment. a lot of people moved to sunder the first few bombardments of deisel of the regime started their fight we had to leave again and stay out in the world sleeping under trees aid organizations came to us to this camp but you see this is not home. it was built only a couple of weeks ago and has already pooled five thousand people are here but still more are arriving every day most of them are poor families from missed and how much as the weather gets colder the main fear here is illness hygiene is a major issue so much of the prevention falls on the women here as they are the ones responsible for feeding and cleaning in dire conditions. the primary needs are tents some things like marshes blankets and carpets also items that are specially needed by children and women you name it people and syrian leaders even finding
a nail clipper is an issue. so a viable mother to cation is the priority here many of these children have been on the run from the bombings for some time some of them haven't been to school in years they're left to think again and i scape from the sad reality of their homeland people have managed to escape the regime's air strikes and the fight against arsenal they were able to find a reference here in this care in northern live for now they are safe but no one knows what will happen if your syrians come to the region say now because all of al-jazeera northern italy. mowen but karbala is the director of policy analysis at the doha institute for graduate studies he says the attacks on civilians are an attempt by russia to kickstart political negotiations. this illusion was part of the disk illusion agreement which has been agreed by the three of. russia to the
key and iran into a sit down or process and whenever you see escalation like this we should know that things are not working small between these three parties in recent weeks actually we have been seeing sort of tension in the relationship between turkey and russia on two things number one is the sushi the sochi conference which the russians are this desperately seeking to have by the end of this month they want the syrian opposition to attend the suci conference of president putin wants this very much because he wants to translate his military gains on the ground in syria into something political this is exactly what president putin is trying to do put maximum pressure on the civilian. community of those fighters in order to force them to agree to a. compromise. a spokesman for turkey's president says an american
operation to help syrian kurdish fighters set up a new border force is unacceptable under the u.s. plan thirty thousand troops will man the borders of territory carved out of northern syria by the syrian democratic forces which are mainly composed of kurdish why p.g. fighters turkey has condemned the move as it fights kurdish separatists within its own borders kurdish turkish forces have repeatedly threatened to capture areas under kurdish control and are warning of an imminent attack on the syrian city of afrin let's go now back to sin and who is a life for as in antakya on the turkish syrian border what exactly are these border forces going to be used for what kind of area are they going to be stationed and why is the u.s. backing them. well sarah sorry. the u.s.
planning to station these troops to turkey iraq and syria iraq border according to the u.s. perspective these forces will be stationed for providing security and stopping the infiltration of the radical groups to the area so this is the u.s. plan and they're planning to use as the forces there most of these forces but of course this is not a well comes by turkey because turkey claims that the white p.j. the syrian kurdish fighters group are an offshoot of the p.k. k. they could disarm workers party and not only turkey but also the u.s. and the you either you have listed the p.k. k. as a terrorist organization so many i can state that turkey is see is this situation as a national threat to its border security and territorial integrity that the
turkish president released his spokesman has responded is not very favorably can you give us a bit more information about. well yes as i said turkey sees it as a national security issue because turkey has been fighting against p.k. k. for thirty seven years so almost forty thousand people have died in this thirty seven year old conflict in turkey both from the turkish and kurdish side and turkey believes that by this move the united states is trying to legitimise over s.d.f. and security forces and transform it into an official army so they are afraid that by this the year of war they struggle against p.k. k. will be abolished and presidential spokesperson you brian cullen stated that turkey reserves that's right to rip spawned any any threat to its national security and territorial integrity and its time anywhere it wants whether it's inside turkey or
outside turkey and as you have also said turkish president our don stated today that this week turkish army is going to be lounging a military operation in our friend but we are going to see whether it's going to be realized or not thank you very much said and speaking to us from the turkish syrian border several people are in hospital after a suspected chemical attack in the rebel held area of eastern guta the damascus suburb which was designated a deescalation zone has come under heavy bombardment as government forces seek to take it back from rebel fighters aid workers at the scene say the victims are being treated for suffocation from what they suspect is chlorine gas. hundreds of people have protested in the changes in capital to mark seven years since the revolution the sparked the arab spring many of the issues which brought people to the streets
back then are still causing problems today anger has risen over new austerity measures after a year of rising prices the government's promise to more assistance for poor families but many say it's just not enough to send this update from the trinity and capital tunis for minutes and this is a moment of national pride parents along with their children converge here on the how do you give a square which was the focal point of the two thousand and eleven revolution to commemorate the vans and to honor those who were killed in two thousand and eleven to defend democracy and put an end to the autocratic rule of the former president zelaya between bin ali but i have to say that there is also this feeling of frustration over the track record of the government and this feeling among people that this worried about their future because of the instability of the city continues and because also the austerity measures that were implemented by the
government a few days ago for the tunisians the biggest problem is not the budget deficit or the need to tackle corruption and embezzlement of public than the government funds the government on the other hand says the only way to cut or reduce the budget deficit is to increase taxes and they need to do it to maintain the economy the balance of the budget to be able to find and social development programs in the near future so this remains a very delicate moment for the tunisian people and for the government on one hand the need to increase taxes to get more revenue for the same time they cannot afford to upset the people because of the go to the streets that's where we might see more instability. while back in twenty eleven twenty six year old fruit vendor mohamed by. z.z. set himself alight in protest at place harassment sparking an uprising that forced out longtime china seem president zina i've been in an alley and some
a binge of aid looks back at the revolution that toppled the dictator and the uncertainty that followed. this was that uneasy in capital seven years ago when protesters made history. but simple demands and joblessness and improved prospects for young people the spark the regional arab spring uprising . the perseverance ended the rule of business in a lab a demon ali who had been accused of corruption and rights abuse but also began an era of political uncertainty lest you stad then i am not prepared to be the person who takes decision this which result in the loss of life. and the conservative islamic party banned by ben ali was on its way to win elections. we have seen the popularity that in that the has around the country. and after a turbulent nine months the ushered in
a democratically elected government in october two thousand and eleven. there were more demonstrations a year later despite a ban on protests and the challenge for tunisia is security and law and order especially on its borders with their geria and libya. three years after the revolution demonstrators took to the streets against economic hardship a new technocrat government was still failing to improve living conditions in two thousand and fourteen therefore to new zealand's did get a new constitution hailed as an important step towards full democracy. the two thousand and fourteen elections brought power to the second learned that to this party which later formed a coalition government but the conservative in the party but the security situation failed to improve. the lives of twenty two people including twenty one foreign tourists were killed when a gunman opened fire at a museum in the capital tunis in june thirty nine people nearly all of them foreign tourists were killed in a gun attack on

a sound without a scandal begins we manage and flawless why it's a perfect performance sends this double olympic champion to pyong chan we'll have the details in sport. palestinian president mahmoud abbas has been addressing the payloads central council meeting in the occupied west bank when the u.s. decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital dominating the agenda they now stand by washington in december has sparked protests across the world palestinian groups hamas and islamic jihad have declined an invitation to observe but not take part in the meeting which is taking place in ramallah they say there is a lack of agreement on how to respond to the u.s. decision let's go across to iran karl who's following events from ramallah in the
occupied west bank and did the president use this this speech as a rallying call what kind of things they have to say my. it was a very strong speech an absolutely rallying call the kind of language. i'm afraid we're struggling to see emraan yes i think we might have to give up on that. ok a member of the cattery of all family says he is being held against his will in the united arab emirates shake a. phony released a video statement saying that have nothing if anything were to happen to him cattle is not at fault he has been living in saudi arabia since a blockade by some of capitals neighbors began the un he denies the allegations and says he's free to leave whenever we choose this well we're going to go back to enron car. if possible and run your cutoff just as you started in your prime so
just give us a sense of what the palestinian president had to say. was a very strong statement he talked about jerusalem being eternal capital of palestine you also said it was a jewel in the crowd there you also heard chris side where you got criticized president on the trip for taking jerusalem off the table he said he said this in a tweet but you also said that this was talk of the palestinian factions to come together to talk about jerusalem and the politics were being put aside and this is why the central council meeting had been convened let's take a look at some of the like they did. in. we say that politically driven person is our capital in our religion is how comfortable graphically it's how come people. but it was removed from the map with a tweet from mr trump. now we say no to trump we won't
accept his plan we cited deal of the century is the slop of the century. and around islamic jihad and hamas refusing to accept the invitation to come to this meeting what kind of things to the palestinian president have to say about them. well as he's been a long time talking about the five islamic jihad in their mouths where they criticize them for saying that this was the wrong place for me to take by sitting where else would a meeting such as this take place he was very disappointed that they didn't attend this meeting he said that this wasn't a political meeting this wasn't about elections for job or any other disagreements that. we did have it is well that this was about the future of a need. everybody needed to get together as you had very strong words for hamas and islamic jihad but also at the other school functions that refused to come to this
meeting as well so you trust that but what this was was a very much a rallying call from the president but we both think that this is. and the thing will leave emraan khan that many thanks for a person varying with out from ramallah thousands of people who lost their homes in to flooding in democratic republic of congo last week all facing another threat health workers are now dealing with a cholera outbreak that skilled a thousand people in the capital kinshasa from what catherine saw and now reports it's hard to be much in just a week ago holmes studia this is a neighborhood on the outskirts of kids. when floodwaters came crashing down from a nearby river many people didn't even have a chance to rescue their loved ones and belongings. this month shows me what you mains of the two bedroom house he shared with his wife and three
children he says he knows if you take his family to higher safer ground but they're still here despite the obvious danger. i am afraid because you still leaning but i don't have any money to move them we've got no help from anyone moving from here means lending the house. but the rains are expected to continue for the next three months and this means more trouble for a country that is facing a cholera outbreak the worst in two decades about a thousand people have died since last year more than fifty thousand from across the country have so far been affected the government has declared cholera a national emergency and set up treatment centers the government has set up this facility here in the most affected area in the city we're not allowed to go to the wards where the patients are because of the nature of the disease since november at least thirty people mostly children have died in kinshasa alone.
cholera is highly infectious also easy to treat if detected early but with a poor health system and financial problems doctors are overwhelmed. our government international appeal for eight million dollars has not helped less than two million has been raised and. only few countries in africa can deal with this situation like this by themselves this is why do government launched an appeal for help in november and declare a national disaster. so here health who it is focus on prevention talking to anyone they can about the importance of good hygiene and visiting centers like this one oddly enough. they are preparing themselves for more difficult times ahead in this rainy season catherine song al-jazeera kinshasa well the world health organization
has called cholera a disease of inequity is a vaccine almost three million people every year of those cases nearly one hundred thousand are fatal the bacteria spreads through water contaminated with human waste which means most deaths occur in countries with inadequate sanitation over the past week as zambia's army has enforced a curfew after the disease claimed at least seventy lives yarran is in the maze so one of the worst ever recorded outbreaks with one million cases and more than two thousand since april and as we heard in conference report more than one thousand people have died from cholera in democratic republic of congo since july the w.h.o. is fighting back launching a new strategy to reduce deaths from the disease by ninety percent or for more we're joined by don't think kennedy is a lecturer in global health at queen mary university of london thanks so much for coming in to al-jazeera a very basic question discolored just kill poor people. not just that i think with
with cholera we have to remember that it is very easy to prevent a very easy to treat and so if you have a supply of clean drinking water if you have toilets then you don't catch you don't contract cholera if you do contract a collar it's actually very easy to treat with antibiotics and with or rehydration therapy you can be well within a few hours so it only reoccurs where there's a failure of the national governments of the international community to provide a good health system and decent sanitation and clean water so yes it tends to affect poor people in poor countries so is it basically almost a manmade issue that we're talking about places like yemen where the infrastructure is broken down where medical supplies broken down where vaccines can't be provided we are looking at something that we are creating that is killing people exactly so it's just a superficial manifestation of a much deeper political malays. a failure to provide clean clean water
sanitation health system which is really quite easy to do and as you say it is treatable so what should we be looking to the big international organizations to be doing just concentrating more on making sure that they can get this medical help vaccines or they can assist in that way is to basically live in an ideal world that's what we would want but it's very difficult for the debate for example. continuously troubled by by funding they have a lack of funding and it's quite easy to raise money for diseases like a bowler that potentially threaten rich people in rich countries but diseases like cholera that affect poor people in poor countries it's much harder to generate any kind of interest among governments in the global north and also we see that this is a manifestation of a much bigger political and economic problem it's the result of a iniquitous economic system that allows some people to be very rich and something very poor and the just don't have the capacity to deal with that kind of problem
it's beyond their remit i mean they have put this figure wanting to replicate ninety percent of it is that realistic can it be done just to explain with the difficulties i hope so and because it's so easy to prevent and street treat then it's possible but it will have to. be part of a total revolution in the way that global health factors see health problems in the global south i'm afraid and it's hard to see that that will happen in the next few years interesting you pick up on a bow and how it was suddenly a worry to the western nations and all that money came in we seem to report on the situation in yemen nearly every day and that figure is rising and nobody does anything about it how can the engineers change that situation when i mean n.g.o.s are operating within a much broader context and if we look at yemen for example it's a society collected affected by a terrible conflict a conflict that is. that is involves the satellite alliance and
who are backed by the u.k. and the u.s. governments and it's very hard for global health factors to deal with that they can't they can't stop that conflict they just have to deal with the symptoms of that conflict for the kennedy thank you very much for coming in thank you. still ahead on al-jazeera the traditional craft of cockpit weaving is unraveling in gaza we look at how the blockade is affecting the ancient business of earning iranian in the east china sea world its crew still on board and in sports find out why one of the greatest of all time doesn't feel the favorites to win the australian tennis.

emmanuel best near has admitted the problem affects eighty three countries where about twelve million tins of powdered baby milk are being recalled lawsuits have been filed by families who say their children have suffered salmonella poisoning after drinking the milk at least thirty on known to have fallen ill in france and one in spain the reports. of two weeks of silence over the contaminated baby milk powder scandal the balsa french company luck tallis has responded to critics who say the manufacturer covered up the extent of the risk emanuel has told a french newspaper. our priority has always been to handle the crisis and make sure that no more children become sick we have never minimized the risk of salmonella we consider that there was no breach of procedures on our side in december like telus began recalling some of its baby milk products in france it had discovered the salmonella bacteria in this factory in the northwest but it's only now that the
extent of the contamination has become clear like tallis has now withdrawn twelve million tins of baby formula for more than eighty countries salmonella can be deadly for young children and dozens of families in france say that their children became sick after drinking luck tellus baby milk they have fog lawsuits against the company saying that it tried to hide the risks and failed to help it klepper of and families were lied to shamelessly and that the fear was spread by the telephone helpline number which was provided at the time or can you believe an operator who tells you that your milk is not affected but then three weeks later you learn that it is. the french president a man or mark or says locked alice could face penalties and on friday the finance minister said the government would do everything possible to end the crisis like that is like to lease will take back all baby milk products manufactured at cow
regardless of their production date from wherever it is being sold in particular from supermarkets and chemist the aim of despair to call step is simple not to avoid delays problems in sorting but is in the risk of human error like dallas his boss says his company has launched its own investigation and will pay damages to the salmonella victims for parents the focus will be on making sure their children are not exposed to the life threatening bacteria natasha butler al-jazeera paris. pope francis has held a special mass to mark the world day of migrants and refugees at a time when there are more displaced people than ever before according to the un's refugee agency more than sixty five million people are being forcibly displaced twenty two point five million are refugees more than a quarter of them from syria and there are ten million people who are stateless not considered to be citizens of any country that includes more than six hundred fifty

look at. it from our perspective i had a fantastic four years national country when you coach your own country with the highest honor and. you have a nice four years we won the asian cup we you know we qualified for a world cup and i just felt it was the right time for me. to try new adventure there are three group games on sunday in the african nations championship that one taking place in morocco the competition which exclusively features players who play their club football in domestic leagues in africa has already seen an upset the ivory coast were beaten by namibia would you believe before sudan opened the campaign with a win beating guinea and coming up soon zambia face uganda. the n.f.l. playoffs will see another four teams reduced to two this sunday right now the jacksonville jaguars are playing against the pittsburgh steelers in the a.f.c.
divisional round well you can see there the jag is one of only two opposing teams with a winning record at heinz field since two thousand and four is looking good at the moment forty nil to the good remember they drafted quarterback of ben roethlisberger all those years ago jacksonville in the lead it is still though in the first quarter now ever wins that game will have the dubious task of facing the super bowl champions next the new england patriots quarterback tom brady threw for three touchdowns as they beat the tennessee titans thirty five fourteen to reach the a.f.c. championship game for a seventh straight time that in itself is an n.f.l. record i think the thing is we don't really take it for granted around here. i know are hard it is to get to this game and you know we're very blessed to do it takes a lot of things a lot of good fortune lot of hard work but obviously a lot of a lot of great blessings and i think you know our team's proven over the course year you know we can win important games against good teams and we did that tonight
and that's why you keep moving on in the n.f.c. the philadelphia eagles will face either the vikings all the saints for the championship title the eagles beat the atlanta falcons fifteen ten to win their first playoff game in the early a decade. the biggest emotion for me was that i was out the team the guys the resiliency of this football team and you know our backs against the wall people you know discount us don't don't give us much credit whatever it might be for our team to battle against a fine football team you know a team that was obviously this time of year is playing an extremely well hot football team. that's one thing about this team that i love so much they battled to the end roger federer says he's too old to be considered one of the favorites to win the australian open as he gets ready to defend his title the thirty six year old is in good form ahead of the tournament this week the one thousand time grand slam champions opening matches on tuesday where he plays slovenia as. having no expectations was was so nice after all these years i was having expectations like
this year again but with age i feel like you know i played down my chances just because i don't think a thirty six year old should be a favorite of a tournament should not be the case so that's why. i see things more relaxed you know later stage of my of my career one of the best snowboarders in the world shaun white is heading to he's fourth winter olympic games. thirty final rock put your hands together for sure it was our final competitor here to. go the two time gold medalist qualifying for pyong chang inspect accurst in colorado on certain a he scored a perfect one hundred for a second time on the half pipe he's the only snowboarder to ever achieve that white swimming running through to two of the toughest tricks on the halfpipe the double back to us twelve sixty and the front side double cool fourteen forty and just listen to the reaction to the final score the fact. i think
