8:02 pm
airstrikes and barrel bombs have resumed on sunday morning particularly in the north how much countryside also southern part of it live province a lot of these areas are sparsely populated it is the countryside there close to the front lines with the syrian government and the syrian backed allies on the ground there is of course huge concerns that this could escalate and move into the more densely populated areas everyone trying to define whether this operation to retake it provinces started or not i think what is clear is that there is a low level offensive under way of course it has a huge psychological impact on the people but there have been no ground movements no ground advances from syrian government forces at the moment and we know also that diplomacy continues the political track very much open behind the scenes turkey still trying very hard to try and get some kind of political solution when it comes to this particular talking to the groups on the ground groups like. to
8:03 pm
look for me known as the nose for a front associated with al qaeda in the eyes of russia and the syrian government trying to get them to lay down their weapons or merge into other groups that is hugely complicated and of course the over three million civilians that live in the province this is why it's all proving so difficult but we're now seeing an escalation certainly day by day on this offensive particularly in the southern part of italy province and in the province is a genie he's an academic an activist to respond to earlier on al jazeera told us people are fearful but determent. the every other day war seems to need more potential actually. it covers all aspects of life let me give you one example for some suicide. cases have been spotted especially among young girls at the cost of they might have heard some horrible stories about great. forces and might come back to the area people are very.
8:04 pm
frightened now. i have to say that they are determined i mean those who confide determined not to leave but stay and fight and fight because you know you can imagine that the population of. one point four million people is forcefully just placed from other areas of the country and i don't know how many times do they need to be displaced so they have no other choice also this sunday we've heard from the u.s. vice president mike pence this is the white house is monitoring developments in its that closely i will tell you that we're watching very carefully as is resources are being marshal along the border of live problems and. confident there will be a decision by the prison in the united states but i'm confident that we'll be monitoring that very very carefully to ensure that that we don't see another
8:05 pm
humanitarian catastrophe like we did before. we look at yemen now where violence has intensified in parts of the country after the talks to end the civil war failed to take off on saturday the findings happened in the red sea port city of her data saudi led coalition and yemeni forces is battling to hit the rebels for control of that city six hundred thousand people live. brokered talks we were talking about in geneva ending before you were abandoned after the delegation wasn't able to show up let's check in with andrew symonds on this one. we were looking so closely at those talks which didn't happen andrew and in the meantime tell us what's happened. well calamity effectively because this is just what margin growth is the u.n. special envoy had feared that her data which is the key ports will the hoochie rebels supply line it's also
8:06 pm
a critical lifeline for civilians in terms of the limited supplies they get from overseas and indeed medicines food so much and this is really what everyone had feared an escalation and a determination it was seen on the part of the saudi us led coalition to cut it off from the rebel capital sana'a so now what we're seeing is multiple reports of deaths and injuries and they are in their schools now some say in the dozens but this is going on for a twenty four hour period that had been fighting ahead of the geneva talks that but there was a lull so what we're seeing now is really grim if you heard anything from the un on this one given that this seems to be some sort of link between the failure of the un talks and what's going on. welcome all
8:07 pm
you've touched on the central point here because the yemeni government in the south was saying in geneva that it would press ahead with its offensive the seller in june on her data they were absolutely categorical that the hoops is being noncompliance in not coming to geneva or of course the hootches say that's how could they come when they had no guarantee of safety martin griffis alluded to this he did say that maybe we didn't get completely a correct situation in advance of our talks he was quite honest it seems he's tried so hard to get dialogue going and these were confidence building moves not actual talks anyway and of course one side didn't get there because they said that they would be endangered in terms of eve ever getting back to the south but whether or not that was the key point that made things fail is unclear because they have got preconditions of injured people going to amman way this is supposed to be
8:08 pm
going to speak to their into major is amman and also to possibly to some rebel potential delegates but the point about what's going on the ground is this we do have reports of schools of deaths of fighters and we now have now hearing from saudi sources that they're saying that the coalition is reported to be saying they've had. very they've inflicted heavy losses on the hootches the hootches also saying that civilians have been that have been killed and we have heard reports that from the saudi side claiming that civilians were trying to escape from the data when they run into minefields late brotherhood says that it is say they were bombed and that there has been a series of strikes sixty at least in the past twenty four hours so that the likelihood for civilian deaths is pretty high in that situation we've also heard from the norwegian refugee. council saying that undoubtedly the fighting what
8:09 pm
across the province is getting closer to her data in the port city much much closer in around the whole areas in the south west in the east and that there are now closer to the airport and of course that crucial port link and so therefore according to the n r c they're saying that this is now getting extremely dangerous and that the gains being made will the certainly the advances being made by this offensive is now made a quantum leap forward towards the city a city that you told our viewers earlier amounted to more than half a million people that is really critical andrew simmons with his update from djibouti there thank you voting about to close in sweden in an election that many believe could change the country's political landscape and anti immigration party is expected to significantly improve on its vote share opinion polls suggest the
8:10 pm
right wing sweden democrats could win almost twenty percent of the ballots prime minister stefan loughlin reiterated his call though for voters to reject the far right after stepping out of the polling place this election is a referendum but oh well. we want to continue to invest you know well through the schools to come here. to greece creatures to our families it's also about decency about a decent democracy of sorts of democrats and just sort of them is going to live. this we democrats extremist party racist party get in early. in the year the governor. also the leader of the controversial anti immigrant sweden democrats cast his ballot jimmy akeson is confident his party will be making big game. i'm an old student what they call me all the above all there are many things that need to be
8:11 pm
done our welfare has been incredibly strained over the past few years the prime minister has prioritized asylum and immigration as head of welfare and we would reverse that priority and prioritize welfare instead well sweden's long had a reputation for welcoming refugees and asylum seekers that are changing journal reports from stockholm. oh weekend football refugees and swedes a model of integration and it works as these young men from afghanistan and syria are happy to explain influence swedish i say i go to school on how to spell it for i go to school here i play football i have many friends here and there are many freedoms in sweden that's why i like it here. but it isn't working for everyone sunday's election is likely to see a far right party the sweden democrats catapulted into second place with support
8:12 pm
from around one in five voters it's a prospect appalling to many because of the party's neo nazi origins and its anti immigration policies are. everything points to us having a good licks and that just how good one can never know it's a question for the voters the party's rapid rise is a psychological setback in a country that long held its own image in high regard it regarded itself as a sort of moral superpower in all sorts of ways that attitude was particularly shaped by the cold war actually it was issued itself between nato and between the soviet bloc and allied itself very much with the third world in more recent years this identity has been more associated with openness to a file of seekers and refugees and it's clear that since the great crisis of two thousand and fifty that. that has changed policy has become much tighter in line with other european countries and that obviously has affected three perceptions of
8:13 pm
themselves to my biggest fear this election is that it will polarize society this we used to say and put people against each other there instead of meeting people and get to know each other i mean we live in a global world and the idea is that we come together not being apart and blame each other. for things this is the sort of thing around which swedes have traditionally united the country's openness its liberal values alongside of course the famous welfare state but it is also the sort of thing now the divides that has allowed a far right party to become a prominent force in national politics exposing deep cracks in sweden's moral high ground and integration the only goes so far the stockholm suburb of be where immigrants congregate could be another country altogether after this election sweden itself might seem that way to joe the whole al-jazeera stocco. here's what's
8:14 pm
ahead for you on al-jazeera cos of us president calls for calm as counterpart visits the region and the tragedy of civilians in war zones as seen through a photographer's lames. hello maybe not surprisingly this is still the hottest part of the world we get about forty seven daily in the southwest of iran there's nothing really in the sky the showers that are potentially around in turkey are pretty rare events to be honest so if you want to aleppo i have to say it's going to be sunny skies here it's also a dancer iraq is still forty six in kuwait and it's not as quite as human as it was around the gulf states is known prevailing breezes jesse committee has dropped
8:15 pm
maybe because it's going up into the sky for the west the potential for thunderstorms the man does the west and saudi is great and i'm that possibility of something happening in the mountains of amman as well and still you got the on shore crowd and drizzle full sun a lot of that part of the coast of oman that is in decent rain recently in africa taking the side south of the scene it just goes series gone through swaziland and he's a line that goes up not through the coast well it's really mozambique isn't it so mozambique in madagascar both seen summary recently and in the full cost i suspect the rain is going to be quite substantial as a tree fifteen line that goes out from madagascar not even touch sun and tanzania sadly that means it's left behind a rather dry picture for the sick couple of days for all of south africa botswana.
8:16 pm
top stories for you this hour here on al-jazeera more barrel bombs have been dropped in rebel held parts of syria and syria and russia carried out the most intense air strikes and if the problem still weeks and
8:17 pm
a ground offensive by government forces is widely expected despite the humanitarian concerns. story violence has intensified in parts of yemen after talks to end the civil war failed to take off on saturday the fighting took place in the red sea port city of the data the saudi led coalition and yemeni forces are battling the hutu rebels for control of the city. and voting is about to close in sweden in an election that many believe could change the country's political landscape and anti immigrant party is expected to significantly improve on its vote share opinion polls to just the right wing sweden democrats could win almost twenty percent of the ballot. now the iranian military says it was behind missile attacks on coalition forces positions in northern iraq on saturday the democratic party of iranian kurdistan says fifteen of its fighters were killed and around forty others injured kurdish military sources said it was the first such attack by iranian
8:18 pm
forces in more than twenty years the strikes at an area east of erbil about one hundred kilometers from the iranian border iranian and turkish forces have attacked bases of kurdish opposition parties in northern iraq in the past accusing them of inciting violence in their countries more on this from baghdad with rob matheson. iran's revolutionary guard say they carried out this attack they said there had been numerous terrorist teams moving into iran's west azerbaijan kurdistan and ken one shot provinces bordering iraq it also said that the k d p i the kurdish democratic party of iran had been recently clashing with revolutionary guards in iran's own kurdistan region now the k d p i is one of the oldest kurdish movements in iran and it's been fighting for greater autonomy of iran's kurdish community for many years but it's also seen several of its leaders assassinated by attack gere in that time iran also said that it was carrying out the attack because
8:19 pm
those leaders had been told to dismantle the camps that they had in kurdistan but they hadn't done so the important thing is the timing of this at least that's important as far as iraq is concerned this is coming just a couple of days after we've seen a significant amount of violence over several days in the southern town of basra which is very close to the iranian border and jewing that the iranian consulate in basra has been burned iran has been extremely angry about that now there's nothing to link these two events but here in iraq there is a lot of speculation that this latest missile attack in kurdistan is iran showing that it can strike back and it can strike back powerfully. at least three people have died after a suicide bomber attacked a procession marking the death of an rebel leader in afghanistan the blast happened in kabul as people marched to remember heading commando sued at least fourteen
8:20 pm
other people wounded hours earlier in kabul another suicide bomber was shot by police before he could detonate his bomb. north korea market seventieth anniversary with a huge display of military might but chose to hold back on showing its long range missiles u.s. president donald trump welcome that decision calling it a big and very positive statement robert bright has more from seoul. it had all the usual pomp of previous military displays but lacking much of the hardware especially the missiles compare this with this. particular with the military parade in april last year commemorating the birth date of north korea's founder kim il song. bristling with the medium and long range missiles it was provocatively testing on a regular basis. even at the start of the thaw in relations earlier this year north korea was showing off the intercontinental ballistic missiles that had taken it to
8:21 pm
what appeared to be the brink of conflict with the u.s. now you see them now you don't. this parade had far more emphasis on the development of the economy in line with leader kim jong un's promise to improve his people's living standards after years of hardship. but the large contingent of journalists allowed into north korea for this event has been shown apparent signs of success even if they are carefully stage managed so you can move on to one continent you can because this is the seventieth anniversary of our country the workers in a factory here all coming together to do their best to produce more and to make the factory ethics us. but if kim is going to achieve real economic development he needs sanctions on his country to be lifted and the us insists for that to happen he has to give up his nuclear arsenal not simply keep it hidden from view. with
8:22 pm
negotiations seemingly deadlocked kim jong un is not doing anything to further antagonize the u.s. seen here with v.i.p. guessed these young shoot from china's ruling politburo rather he is using the event to build on his developing links with the international community trying to emerge from the isolation of the past. robert bright al-jazeera so that the folks now robert kelly an associate professor at the department of political science and diplomacy at her son national university he told us the absence of the intercontinental ballistic missiles in the parade shows north korea's willingness to negotiate with the us probably the most important news for those of us on the outside is that there were no i.c.b.m.'s right if the i.c.b.m. canisters had gone down the street i think a lot of hawks in the united states particularly would have said look they're threatening us again so that's good right i mean north koreans like symbolism and so that's a good thing in itself i think the north koreans are looking for a deal yeah i do i think they're not going to give up everything they want go to
8:23 pm
zero the president u.s. president should not have talk of a complete verifiable your first will disarm and you know that's just not going to happen but my guess is they probably willing to freeze or cap what they have where they are now in exchange for some kind of sanctions relief maybe a peace treaty maybe we can get them to roll back ten or twenty percent of what they have we give them you know aid or some more you know complete package i do think the north koreans are one idiotic thing the chinese sense that which is sort of where the pressure is coming from but you know the americans are kind of all over the place right i mean donald trump's you know made all these big speeches a few months ago in the calm drop that it's not really clear what the american position is particularly on the very contentious issue of a peace treaty. members of the trumpet ministration secretly met venezuelan military leaders to talk about removing president nicolas maduro in a possible coup that's according to the new york times which quoted unnamed u.s. officials and a form of venezuelan military command saying the plan stalls donald trump of course critical of my daughter and his handling of the economic crisis which is led to a severe shortage of food and basic services millions of people have been fleeing
