5:04 pm
not attending classes regularly well earlier i spoke to one in the gallery who's a member of that u.n. commission of inquiry on syria and which released that report he says the majority of children dying in syria could have been saved. we're seeing children who have been dying not just because of the bombings and the sieges but today as we speak children are dying because of the lack of humanitarian access and the lack of medical care and poor conditions but i guess for me what's been shocking is to look at what hope there is for children in syria today going forward we're still as i said seeing preventable deaths education is now devastated and you know in what way will they be able to catch up who we're talking to a generation that has lost schooling you know 5000000 displaced internally and externally right now obviously the 1st thing that could be done is everybody stops
5:05 pm
bombing schools and facilities that children need that's pretty going forward and what we've said in the report is we need. to start rebuilding these places so children can be back at school rather than be out about out on the streets or involve them in the conflict etc we need to be looking at the medical facilities and and the humanitarian assistance that children need desperately because they're dying you know which is quite remarkable that at this stage we're still reporting we were reporting on children dying when they were sieges when nobody could get in and out but you know why should children die in the ad lib region. you know there's nothing really that should be preventing international humanitarian assistance other than bureaucracy un resolutions and the lack of cooperation on the part of states. now turkey is president says the deployment of turkish troops to libya has
5:06 pm
begun and fighting near tripoli has resumed to following the failure of talks in last go on monday to agree a truce or a plea for have to his forces have been trying to capture the capital and to depose the internationally recognized government now for the past 9 months or so then costello is in istanbul and she says turkey's military presence is intended to act as a deterrent to khalifa haftar its forces. so since of the it has been signed between jna and turkey we heard 35 troops were deployed there i spoke to the other 3 officials in ankara are they a void giving end in numbers exact numbers about how many troops have been deployed there and how many will be there they're just telling us that the number of troops over there changes depending on the day and depending on the need and they are avoiding to say the targeted number of troops to be deployed to evolve any in
5:07 pm
any speculation by the involved parties but we know that d.n.a. and turkey as stablished a coordination office to run out this defense and security deal between the 2 i have to remind that the core of their forces the troops turkish troops will not be combat they are training the genny forces over there which have at least $56.00 or 7 factions we don't know the exact number and even for the future i'm told that there is no name for combat forces this is just this is just for training them but why the prisons added on repeated the statement today as if it was something new is important it seems that our don is also trying to give a message to general half there who has left the negotiation table in moscow who said that he won't be abiding with the cease fire so the meaning of turkish military presence in libya is much more about the turns between jenny and half
5:08 pm
their forces well our correspondent whatever why it is in tripoli and he says that turkish military assistance has helped the internationally recognized government defends that city. half the us forces have been striving over the past few months to get into into the capital city center but they have not so far because of the turkish military existence in the form of troops or advanced weapons remember that the government of national called several times that. request the official request . to turkey to send troops and weapons because the government says it is the only libyan legitimate institution by virtue of that legitimacy it can request officially from another government military assistance and that's the same president of the un said in several occasions he said that we we will not mind to send troops and weapons to libya as long as we receive an official request of
5:09 pm
invitation from legitimate government the government of national accord said several times that if have. a legitimate. leader is that a good unofficial mercenaries from russia from african countries like sudan and chad then the government believe that it is their right it is its right to. to request help from another legitimate government as long as it's defending itself and also facing the aggression by have to the forces on the capital tripoli. now despite international pressure to abide by its 2015 nuclear deal commitments around says it will continue to enrich uranium in a televised speech president hassan rouhani said taran has now surpassed the limits set under that agreement his statement comes just days after 3 nations that were
5:10 pm
party to the deal launched a dispute mechanism that could lead to more sanctions being imposed on iran. do. i want to live in when the u.s. pulled out of the nuclear deal we contacted the other parties and expressed our preparedness to fulfill our obligations however today we in terms of the nuclear power we have no limit we are in a much better situation compared to before the deal our uranium enrichment today it's much higher than that stipulated in the deal we had earlier signed we cannot sit on our hands they abandon their obligations we will reciprocate so now there is a sandbag has on his comeuppance. it was a very defiant message by president rouhani now we know that iran has been phasing back is cutting back its commitments in regards to that 2015 nuclear deal that started last year it's been in 5 phases the last phase was early january now according to that deal they're not allowed to enrich uranium past 3.67 percent we
5:11 pm
know that it's over 4.5 percent we know that they're not allowed to stockpile uranium more than 300 kilograms we know that they've exceeded that but iran has been very clear and transparent about this that they've said that the europeans are not sticking to their commitments as part of that deal so iran has slowly been reducing its commitments president rouhani spoke about the state of the economy he said that we accepted the risks when we started that reduction in commitments yes it has been difficult but the economy is working and again a very defiant message saying to the world that yes we we are reducing these commitments but iran is willing to talk at all these reductions are reversible if the european countries come back to their obligations to that deal and also saying to the european countries that they need to stand up to the united states because the united states unilaterally pulled out of this deal under donald trump the swedish foreign minister linda and there has been speaking has been speaking to

5:15 pm
hello again you're watching al-jazeera a reminder of our top stories this hour the united nations says atrocities against children in syria continue to be committed by warring sides the u.n. commission of inquiry released the report as violence intensifies in province russian and syrian jets have killed at least 21 people in recent days. turkey's president says the deployment of troops to libya has begun turkish soldiers are being sent to support the internationally recognized government in tripoli its fighting forces loyal to war old khalifa haftar. underruns president says the rainy i'm in richmond limit set under the 2050 nuclear deal has been exceeded the 3 european signatories to that deal launched a dispute this week accusing the iranians of violating that deal the dispute may lead to more sanctions. now the presiding judge for
5:16 pm
donald trump's impeachment trial is due to be sworn in choose day as the date that's been set for the start of proceedings in the senate budget revelations from a former associate of lawyer rudy giuliani have to in a spanner in the works well let's now go to our white house correspondent kimberly how could he joins us from washington d.c. these stocking revelations can be from left potus this associate of trump's personal lawyer how will all of these new details about claims of his direct involvement play into the impeachment process. yeah well this is certainly a story that has been percolating in washington continuing to spiral not good news for the u.s. president because essentially these claims are making the case for democrats who have been saying there's new evidence this needs to come out in the trial and there is a need to call witnesses something the white house has been trying to discourage discourage these latest allegations as you point out an associate of the president's lawyer rudolph giuliani a man by the name of lev parness has given an explosive interview here in the
5:17 pm
united states or essentially he says in his own words that the president knew exactly what was going on with the pressure campaign to dig up dirt on political rival former vice president joe biden he knew exactly what was going on and it was in lock step with left parness and others as this was being carried out his exact quote the president knew exactly what was going on he was aware of my movements now in the midst of all of this we are also hearing explosive new information that ukraine has announced that they will be opening an investigation into the possible surveillance of and a former u.s. ambassador to ukraine a woman by the name of marie yvonne of it we heard from her in the trial or rather in the inquiry in the house of representatives that now is being investigated because what's alleged there is that in fact according to left parness she was booted out of her role as the ambassador from the united states to ukraine because
5:18 pm
she was trying to block the efforts by the trumpet ministration to conduct this investigation which was really outside normal channels so these are the allegations that are being made at this hour the white house we should very quickly say is pushing back on this the press secretary stephanie grisham saying in just the last few moments these allegations are being made by a man who is currently out on bail for federal crimes and is desperate to reduce his exposure to prison the facts haven't changed. the president did nothing wrong in this impeachment which is manufactured carried out by democrats it's been a sham from the start so that's the news that's been dropping in just the last hour last half hour really and we're continuing to follow it and kimberly all these explosive claims how they are likely to play out during the trial in the senate yeah well as i mentioned this is essentially the crux of the debate in the senate whether or not there should be witnesses republicans pushing back on that democrats
5:19 pm
saying there need to be witnesses as a result of this new information it's going to be harder for the white house to shut this down now in light of these new details and kimberly we're also expecting all of those proceedings to really kick off today this judge to be sworn in talk us through the process of what happens yeah real quickly the timeline in about 3 hours we're going to see this house managers that were parading across the capitol of the been named as the prosecutors in this case they are going to go to the senate read the articles of impeachment a couple hours after that we're going to see the chief justice of the supreme court john roberts he'll be sworn in and then in turn he will swear in the senators as jurors and then we expect this trial to begin on tuesday. came to a halt at their white house correspondent thank you commissions across that story for us well moving on now and pressure is building on iran to fully disclose details of the downing of a ukrainian plane over terror on last week foreign ministers from 5 countries whose

5:21 pm
surprise admission that it had shot down this civilian aircraft last week it's enabled investigators from different countries to access the crash site we know that ukrainian officials and i'm possession of the black box flight recorder very very little is currently known about the aircraft's last moments possibly because a lot of the information maybe sensitive to iran may be classified but we do know increasingly more more about some of the passengers on board including an entire family that was killed and also a leading several leading scientists from canada as well it's justice for these people that the canadian leadership are pushing for. russia's parliament has approved the president's choice for prime minister mikhail machine as the former head of the federal tax sadness and he will replace dmitri medvedev who quit on wednesday along with the entire government the resignations came after president
