u.s. makes way for turkey to launch a big military operation in northern syria america's kurdish say they have been stabbed in the back. while protesters are killed in iraq but the government denies its forces were behind any shootings tension in hong kong protesters face court action under new legislation banning face coverings also this hour a lifelong dream the benefits for this woman and her family in the 1st country to eradicate state it's nice i applaud the biggest downfall taking the courage to do it. i'm joining us you're through with the day's sport as the usa pull off of golden finish on the track on the final day of the well back and 6 championships that.
6:50 pm
thank you for joining us the u.s. has evacuated to observation posts in northeast syria and says american troops won't protect kurdish forces in the area should turkey attack them turkey has been widely expected to launch a major military offensive in the area the u.s. has also criticize european countries for being unwilling to repatch reate former eisel fighters now held there as prisoners kurdish forces control much of syria's north they say they will not hesitate to defend themselves and that the u.s. has quote stab them in the back the united nations says it has drawn up a contingency plan to offer humanitarian aid in the area. president. says turkey could no longer ignore the threat posed by fighters across the border in northern syria. should the withdrawal of u.s. troops from the area has begun following my phone conversation last night with president trump as you know we had made a decision and had always said that we may arrive one night unannounced and this
6:51 pm
decisiveness continues because we can no longer accept the threats caused to our country by these terrorist groups so that they speak to see him now our correspondent in istanbul seen him tell us more for us about the so-called terrorists president obama wants to clear from the border and how deep are we expecting turkish forces to push into northern syria. fully present are gone out to the point south to the y. p.g. syrian kurdish fighter group which is known to be linked with the outlawed kurdistan workers' party turkey deems the p.k. k. as a terrorist organization not only turkey but also the e.u. and the us as well so turkey believes that this area if if if the y. p.g. has an autonomous area in northeastern syria this will have a negative impact on turkey that can end up with an independent kurdish state which means it taking land from turkey iran and iraq those countries have cordage
6:52 pm
population as well regarding to that the turkish military can go inside so far turkey have discussed that turkey should be 30 kilometers deep for a safe zone but the us it was saying that it was 5 to 10 kilometers for now there is no clear statement about about how turkey will go but just a last minute development a sit in a turkish official spoke to reuters and anonymously saying that turkey would probably wait for the whole us pull out from that area and turkey would wait for an oppression aren't of that pullout is complete because so far we know that the us forces only put pulled out from the other and wrestle and observation. posts in him what about the eyesore fighters the kurds have been holding in prisons and camps across northern syria the american seem to be saying that turkey will not be responsible for them. well yes this is actually how potato 1st
6:53 pm
let me electrified that whole camp where the most around 80000 i saw all the families and fighters are residing is deeper than 30 kilometers currently under a desk there controlled area so for far we have no idea what the deal is between the u.s. and turkey president gone had a press conference like an hour ago and his that germany and france are also doing some studies as they have some foreign fighters among them and he ordered his team to do some studies but according to the military military circles that they're against from the station for a pullout they say turkey doesn't have the capacity to deal with those 80000 eisel members and families and they say at least 10000 are the fighters but s.t.'s has been threatening turkey and the west saying that if turkey interferes those eisel fighters will be out of control and they they will not be kept in prisons or camps
6:54 pm
so this is actually the vague area the gray area where we have no information but of course this can also go beyond turkey's capacity and capability to keep under control for now we know that they're there they are doing some studies but this can be a big issue for turkey and for turkish border security folly thank you for that simcoe so blue with that update from istanbul let's not speak some more about this to deal our dean who's president of the middle east research institute and a former minister of higher education in the kurdistan regional government he's live from erbil in northern iraq thank you very much for being with us the prevailing narrative has always been that the americans won't abandon the kurds who fought and defeated deisel and now it's looking like that's not the case are you surprised. well i personally not and many kurdish leaders both in iraq and syria. have been worried about this and dissipating this because

president trumper had it been all up to him he would have pulled the troops out about a year ago or 10 months ago but the presence of people like john bolton in his administration people in pentagon congress they lobbied hard for the troops to remain because they thought this is the only foothold and leverage they have in the middle east to counter not only isis but also iran and and the future directions and of course the defeat came at a very high cost so eventually we thought that president trump may. reluctantly or otherwise succumb to the relentless turkish lobbying pressure and pressure on the ground so essentially the split in the american administration was not very very healthy or promising and finally people knew mr trump's thinking is all about what it cost to stay there and he was not interested in neither the

middle east nor syria nor the kurds so for him it was a different matter than the then the administration that was thinking more strategically right so eventually turkey had its way so as you say the turks it would appear now have carte blanche to do whatever they want in northeast syria how concerned are you about the protection of kurdish people in northern syria when the turkish tanks roll in both in terms of sovereignty and in terms of maintaining safety in the area. well the overall kurdish concern as a whole is many fold one is that people saw what happened 5 years of isis qualify and at what cost they managed to defeat it and what a complicated international coalition was required and direct u.s. ally in an engagement required to defeat them they do see that scenario repeating itself because many people don't believe that turkey gives priority to actually

controlling isis as well as the syria and then they are free in previous invasion of a friend by turkey and turkish proxies again is not a new experience or an example that can be well remembered because of what happened then and importantly the kurds in syria wanted to have a seat at the table of future negotiations writing the constitution but with turkey having a greater say in turkey and aligning itself better with russia on iran and effectively evicting or getting rid of this major barrier for iran and russia american presence taking may end up with greater say and perhaps the kurds believe that they would be denied their voice to be or their concerns to be a voice of the of these conferences and during the right of the constitution they may not have their say or of what is of the table so the kurds are worried about immediate consequences of this and long term consequences briefly please if we can

now where i do what about i saw the i saw fight this will be held by the kurds right now in northern syria the americans seem to be saying that turkey if it goes ahead with this operation will not be responsible for then what's going to happen to the site. well it's unlikely that the s.d.f. can actually do 2 things at the same time on one hand resisting the turkish invasion but at the same time looking after this colossal. camp and contain the isis which is now increasingly organized it's maintain its structure as well as its influence and while these the area surrounded by dysfunctional governments and. military groups it's very difficult for the kurds to maintain anything now if the americans believe that turkey will take care of our whole and all these tens of thousands of arsons fighters it will be really kind of difficult to
6:59 pm
imagine because turkey has not yet committed itself to anything and it is not never given it a priority so what happens to that we don't know we're going to back in history and are facing the same problems like we did 5 years ago only time can tell indeed thank you very much for speaking to us. dean president of the middle east research institute live there from erbil thank you for your time let's turn now to other world news and japan says it's rescued dozens of north korean fishermen after a collision at sea a japanese patrol vessel collided with a north korean boat in the waters off the sea of japan it was in an area looking for ships illegally fishing in its waters japan's coast guard says it pushed more than 300 north korean boats back from the same waters in june and the tie in coast guard says a migrant boat has capsized killing at least 9 people it overturned near the island of lampedusa as
