in you. if you believe the people. from desperation to liberation hope for syrians india's or as the army works to repel islamic state from the city we've got exclusive video from there coming up this of. concern and confusion over the korean peninsula crisis with seoul uncertain of the united states strategy and with both preparing joint military drills likely to further inferior to the north. plus the head of the libyan national army exclusively tells r.t. about which countries are helping or hindering his country's drawn out conflict. italy's dealing with transporting arms fire to new zealand algeria but
unfortunately some libyan parties get these arms and this is supporting terrorism instead of fighting it. by ten am wednesday morning or moscow welcome thanks for watching r.t. news update with me kevin though in this hour first after three years isolated from the outside world is no hope for syrians india resort as the army battles to try to retake that city from islamic state. exclusive video from the besieged place. you. know what it's cool. if you do the same thing a little bit in that.
one woman i. the conditions inside the city a die after years of terrorist oppression basically says cities including food escape this and the u.n. is concerned that medical help is not getting through right now the only way to get vital supplies to civilians is through ed drops live reports it's not the mariana trench or an active volcano but still one of the least accessible places on our planet syria's dear resort a city that's been completely encircled by islamic state for some three years. although it almost seems impossible but the only way to get into the city is by plane but it means risking your life one r.t. contributor did just that getting exclusive access to the neighborhood of besieged
a resort right here just hundreds of meters from the front line at first glance these exclusive pictures seem they could be from any middle east city but that's far from that here's what locals have gotten used to they are going to start out idea that there was. some during our lives. many of us are going mortars left. craters rubble blood on the ground you can find scenes like this all over war torn syria but here in des resorts the disaster is totally and escapable the city completely cut off there's been times which have been very dire but has said local support has been key especially to the tribes in the division they have been key to holding out and at the moment it's very similar and drops are happening and people
forget that this. has been very difficult for the deescalation so it has helped the situation in their resume as well c.v.s. parachutes that's food an essential is being delivered to deir ez-zor it's basically the only way possible you don't have to be you an expert to realize how bad things are when it comes to the water and food situation here when you're inside the city the camera doesn't lie about the consequences of the siege the u.n. estimated some ninety thousand people remain trapped in their resort today we can't tell how many are left but they're still there hoping to forget what it's like to have islamic state as their only neighbors. america's sent a quote resolute and balanced message over the crisis on the korean peninsula according to the south korean vice foreign minister but that seems to contradict earlier statements from seoul that were critical of washington's response to the
north korean missile threat reports. before donald trump even taken office he already laid out a clear strategy for dealing with threats to america we are totally predictable we tell everything we're sending troops we tell them we're sending something else we have a news conference we have to be predictable well south korea washington's key partner in asia didn't bank on the tactic also being used on them we think that now with the american government has moved from the strategic patience of obama into strategic confusion well here's where that confusion might be coming from let's see if we can follow the trump team's statements over the course of about a week they will be met with fire fury. sleep well tonight no sir the. rhetoric of the last few days frankly
the people who would question that statement was. maybe it wasn't tough enough this president will no longer. put up with a piece that nobody loves a peaceful solution better than president trump that i can tell you we continue to be interested in finding a way to dialogue that's up to you following these mixed messages from washington the unpredictable is certainly happened the tensions have now got p.r. yang in seoul somewhat agreeing with each other the u.s. should first show through actions if they wish to ease tensions on the korean peninsula and prevent a dangerous military clash. a government will put everything on the line to prevent another war on the korean peninsula and when it comes to the question of whether or not the united states wants to resolve the korean nuclear issue peacefully seoul says that it is on the same team as washington the south korean government and the u.s. government don't have a different position on the peaceful resolution of the crisis in south korea really
be sure given that it's rather unclear what exactly trump really wants this is because there is no policy. this is because trying doesn't sit down with his cabinet and say ok let's strategize. for the contingencies that we've guy and then once we've got this this policy then we always a year or two that policy and our public our public statements reflect that that doesn't go on i mean the president makes his statement and he doesn't consult anybody does more than anybody and then you do catch up. with the secretary of state trying to settle nerves and of course the defense department gets jealous and the state department this is what happens when nobody's in control you have to wonder if south korea isn't starting to get just
a little bit annoyed after all their lives hang in the balance as the white house word games continue mopp and r.t. new york meanwhile north korea's backed away from an earlier threat to strike an american target saying it's willing to wait but the u.s. is now planning a joint military exercise with south korea from a pentagon official one can loop thinks that these drills will further aggravate the situation on the peninsula. there is going to be an impending south korean u.s. military exercise within the next week or so if south korea if south korea is sincere maybe they should postpone. as a signal to north korea that they are sincere about deescalating tensions on the peninsula i haven't heard that yet and and what i'm concerned about is if they proceed with that those military exercises there will be yet another catalyst for kim jong un to start rattling the sabers again. an exclusive the commander
in charge of the libyan national army has been explaining the help and hindrance of some foreign states in the conflict that's plaguing the fractured country that he's from gen cleaver after has been visiting moscow and has been speaking as i say exclusively to. russia is a friendly state to us we have long term historical relations and we have fully and in detail describe to russia what is going on in our country we trust each other and conceal nothing we've given full information concerning our political and military spheres i think we have coherence on always russia has never refused us its political support and it has influence on the international arena that's why we asked them to promote the softening of unjust resolution dollars which were adopted regarding the embargo on supplying arms to libya. italy created a barrier outside its territorial waters to send migrants back to the libyan coast
but this is absolutely wrong they want to concentrate all migrants on the libyan coastline this is after all migration and we shouldn't turn it into colonizing death and it would be better to tackle the root of the problem but i think the technical capabilities of borders need to be developed with help from other countries and it is that the europeans have to be responsible and participate in meeting the challenge of adequately equipping libyan border guards if they want to prevent illegal migration they should reduce weapons import constraints italy's dealing with transporting arms fire tunisia and now tyria but unfortunately some libyan parties get these arms of course this is part of increasing pressure on those areas and this is supporting terrorism that instead of fighting it all the. org we conduct business transparently with state to take the initiative of france took the initiative to mediate rebuilding our state and to help establish peace and we will work with france using everything we have literally take the initiative and
then we will work with italy we're not biased towards anyone we're not seeking to create problems instead we have conflict in our country and in looking to solve it we also should be able to decisively face aggression against us some may think that libya is weak in that you can slice off a piece of libya yes we're not strong but we won't give an inch of our national territory we'd rather die than live in humiliation on our land general after a powerful figure in libya's ongoing conflict a long time military veteran took part in the coup that brought gadhafi to power but then also played a crucial role in the one that toppled him in twenty eleven artists america next explains how general have to force his way back into libya's political arena after decades abroad. a pivotal figure in shaping the future of libya is a military strongman and previous backer of colonel gadhafi although in two thousand and eleven khalifa returned from exile to lead rebel forces against the stars national libyan army has the support of some international heavyweights
including france a country open to talks with the rival government cars the. western leaders initially celebrated his fall from power and even promised a brighter future for libya. you would get rid of him you would choose freedom. thank you. the united states is committed to the libyan people you have won your revolution we came we saw very few died. what they didn't foresee however was the instability and chaos that continues to plague the country. there are currently three governments simultaneously trying to will libya but that isn't counting tribal leaders and various islamist groups setting up their own to fact the laws of the land it's been six years since made his intervention to oust colonel gadhafi but now it's another military commander emerging as
a key player on the political scene the intervention in libya has been an unmitigated disaster a state of confusion. and failed state status which libya. possesses all power comes out of the barrel of a gun. a lot of guns. in his fight against the extreme islamist elements well able to use it we have after all this blood the hope for someone like him to take the reins of power and rebuild. beon state it's come full circle so libya could be about to go full circle with the possibility of a military man once again taking the reins. course in a line for free speech to causing offense has really been more fiercely debated
than it is today especially in the states any words with the so-called connotations that might offend the current in the firing line. political correctness has long been driving people mad people don't want political correctness they're tired of it today talking points which i've been poll tested and focus group tested and that's what you're saying rather than what's really going on i don't agree. with you when you become students at colleges have to be coddled and protected from different points of view and it's cases like this that are giving p.c. a bad name schools in oregon have dropped the word lynch from their names claiming it made some people feel very uncomfortable we have children of color in other cultures and we want to make sure that they're able to cross the threshold of those three spalls and be comfortable within their surroundings but the schools many have nothing to do with the most murders in america they were named after patrick lynch the farmer who donated land for building schools now that his name has been removed
perhaps these two should also consider rebranding but it's far from the only case of political correctness running amok in the us the city of bloomington in indiana has renamed two holidays one for fear of offending one christians the other to keep native americans happy and in north carolina state university the teacher reduced students' grades for using words that she deemed sexist like the word mankind no wonder then that some are getting fed up with p.c. this petition jokingly cools on restaurant chain cracker barrel to change its name to cook asian brown so as not to a thing. it's gone it's fifteen thousand signatures so for some at least political correctness is not mad but a barrel of laughs. coming up a man has died off from israeli hospital right prevented them getting lifesaving treatment we've got video of the raid and we actually know what happened after it.
usual it's business like it's never been done before. videos been released of israeli police raiding a hospital in east jerusalem they were apparently trying to arrest a palestinian man who'd been critically wounded but the action in fact prevented him from undergoing an operation and then medical staff say that resulted in his death witnesses described it as. i got a call from security informing me that the police had entered the surgical ward i went up there and said in english you can't be here this is a sterile ward one of them told me there's a wounded man here we want to see. curry
clee wounded man who was brought into our illegally can been hit by bullets he was bleeding happily to doctors decide to take the man to the operating room and a second floor. there is a mutual pushing and shoving between the young man and the officers who were assaulting people in the charming and admissions. for their part israeli police did night the claims of using excessive force saying they were under attack by local residents and that concrete blocks were being thrown at them artes requested further comment from the israeli police since that video came to light with not a thing but yet since we do we'll pass that news on to you. for its part to amnesty
international's condemn the israeli police raid as a ruthless display of force and violence palestinian human rights campaigner sir francis such actions are illegal but they become more frequent. israel as a state is not respecting international humanitarian law this is not the fairest time that there is that oily army is attacking hospitals and inter-linked of course but those last two years of the. hospital in hebrew on in order to address someone tells today unfortunately the international community are not taking these fail and seriously so that action to such a relation should be more serious by the international community especially the e.u. and agencies and the international criminal court to open immediate investigation to find is that oil accountable because as i said it's not the first time and never of their international community took any or yell measures in order to enforce this
royal to avoid international low and to stop such practices. for the merits of the e.u. is on a costly charm offensive to tackle your skepticism across the bloc in fact it's branded nearly three million euro on eighty four projects no less one of them is targeting southern states as well as a stone and wales warning of how brics it is jeopardizing the union's fundamental structure and spurring euro skepticism everywhere in fact ten of the projects be conducted within britain that's up to the program came about in the wake of course of the british voters shock decision into the sixteen to quit the e.u. and said it's up very relevant to know if you check out one recent poll that suggests that two thirds of people in the u.k. now would leave leave twenty two percent would choose to stay that's a stronger vote than before british girl accuses the e.u. of using taxpayers' money though to indoctrinate citizens they just see it as this huge wave were educated populace at the piven intelligent ones and they know
better or black color attitude is just going to get them deeper and deeper into trouble this is an opportunity for them to wake up and listen they're not taking it they try. to reeducate into trying to use our money to indoctrinate his into thinking or feeling differently it's not going so well i think the twenty third of june twenty sixth was an opportunity it was a wake up call for the european union for them to sit up and for them to answer what do our citizens really warm what do they expect from these institutions and how can we change to make them feel more like like this is a democratic institution as time goes by we're going to see more and more. distrust and more more problems within the european union a lot of it will be of the. canadian military has been deployed to build tent camps to accommodate a surge in asylum seekers across the border the refugees mostly from haiti left the
u.s. now for canada as artie's. explains next fake news may be one of the reasons behind the spike. the supply containers are down. and the tents are up as the canadian military prepares for more refugees from the u.s. but if you total over sixty five hundred asylum seekers have made a claim in quebec since the beginning of this year hundreds of who have entered the province illegally in the past few weeks when completed these tests are going to house about five hundred people that's going to be the total at this site but considering that hundreds of people are flooding in from the us each and every day over this border authorities are in a constant search for housing but here to provide. a room not not a room but beds you know it's rudimentary it's not class it's not high class it's not luxury but it's function of fake news sites which many blame for the recent
surge of illegal refugees into canada have reportedly promised haitians in the u.s. that canada was automatically accepting them what's app hopes even told them that candidate was paying the bill for all their costs so they're in fortunate that they're getting this information because haitians that are claiming refugee status are getting exactly the same treatment as a refugee so they have to prove before the court that they have to a well founded fear of persecution that's not something that's easy to do canada views haiti as a country that is stable and safe in fact canada routinely rejects asylum claims filed by haitians in the first half of two thousand and fifteen only thirty eight percent of asylum claim is from haiti or accepted as for haitians crossing from the u.s. factus trump simply contemplated suspending the temporary protected status for haitians in the united states which was implemented in two thousand and ten after a disastrous earthquake in that country nothing has been done about this so far
unlike in canada where the moratorium for haitians what's suspended two years ago tended to continue surprise itself on welcoming people from all over the world but for illegal. it's not a simple some would like to think canada will continue to treat these people with dignity and respect chances are that many will be told to go home and that won't be back to the good old us of a i'm alex mile of america in montreal canada. us marines have been preparing for world war three with the help of a combat simulator is set up in an unnamed eastern european country with russian speaking insurgents trouble is seems there's little resemblance to reality.
