frankly i might have no idea how to classify as actually took me way more time and i care to admit. i. was. the wrong me says it has recaptured telefon from islamic state while rights groups voice concerns over the fate of civilians plus. the. stranded all things are reunited with their relatives in russia to their parents took them to iraq when they joined islamic state. and the terrorist organization claims it was behind friday stopping in the belgian
capital alone attack in just two soldiers. you're watching altie international live from moscow i'm rosana locker thank you for joining us. the wrong key military says it has retaken the city of tal a fall of one of the last islamic state strongholds in the country the u.s. backed offenses have offensive has come to heavy cost for civilians. the operation started away he got islamic state militants have dropped back from telephone but they still hold nearby territory more of a gas you have has the latest from. it is important to note that while by all accounts the city of tal afar itself has fallen the province has not
the battle has not ended the operation has not ended it continues but as the commander of the operation told us today the city itself has largely been taken there are a few holdouts still in the city a few job this isis fighters still hiding in basements waiting to ambush iraqi troops that are clearing the city that are checking for mines and booby traps but otherwise the city is largely under iraqi control and i believe they announced that on the radio for the troops to hear because all of a sudden in all directions people began firing in the air and cheering in celebration nevertheless the fighting continues in the suburbs around and throughout the provinces well far from it they expect another few days at least of fighting before they declare mission accomplished so civilians have tough few days ahead of them on top of what they've been through already tens of thousands of
people have fled their homes trying to find some safety trying to get away from the crossfire the edge strikes the artillery the explosions some of them braved the desert walking for ten for twenty hours through scorching heat in order to get to safety to find food water medical treatment so they've been through a lot. that we were in from the shelling from the coalition will lift and the people from islamic state again. our children is sick we're stranded here without aid there is no fresh water anymore some of the aid workers have been hit very issue this is my son he is suffering we have no electricity. there were however a number of interesting developments yesterday on the twenty fifth of august four hundred families of isis fighters managed to leave fahd it would appear as though
there was some sort of deal made with the iraqi forces that. because it is highly doubtful that four hundred families with women and children could have broken the blockade broken through although was officials have confirmed to us that these did indeed happen they were details very of a safe and did not address many clues another interesting thing is that everybody expected isis to put up more resistance they expected the fights to be tougher than it was and many soldiers that we've spoken to expressed surprise that it had been so easy suggesting that perhaps some isis fighters at least had managed to infiltrate out get away get out of this area the area in. that is besieged but the fight isn't yet over there are still isis strongholds in areas they control throughout and their os of aliens in those areas. are
a shin bet some striking similarities with the recent campaign in nearby mosul which left our dead the two cities well i saw strongholds biffy used by u.s. backed iraqi forces thousands of civilians were trapped inside. and mosul under constant bombardment many of those who tried to flee what killed in the crossfire and those who remained quickly ran out of basic supplies. five children from southern russia who were stranded in iraq have been reunited with their families it's believed the youngsters will take to iraq by their parents who joined eisel filmed them in a baghdad off an inch where they were taken after the liberation of mosul we have also been helping to find the children's relatives in russia.
public good that is been awarded you're good at that. you know i'm getting my face smiling out of your. phone must assume such a service that's a must see must see since. ati's roselyn a my i've traveled to the russian republic of dagestan to speak exclusively with some of the returning children. tears of joy and relief were very evident at the plane carrying five children from iraq landed in grozny but for the families waiting with stories and balloons there was also the question how to help these children read some to some the morality they witnessed the chorus of i still the
loss of their parents and being left all alone into bugger the orphanage. i wanted. for the little sisters had vision for thema bases and other thing of the past here is then your home and their family has a great to share their first day together with us the girls found the perfect remedy in their grandfather plenty of sweets and friends to play with. this is her decision and she's clearly the leads of the pack it seems to gruelling experience of football has made her even stronger for team zero six conference in the arms of her granddad who seems just too afraid to part with her again even for a moment it looks like the perfect family image house filled with children's love to cries plenty of noise and forcing about it takes a while to realize what's missing and i know i need.
to go in. and get even with all the love and care has to offer his granddaughters there are still many rooms left on he wants to get as other business . but the critical is about whether. you get it might have been a deliberate big idea but. have you decided to do this to get a good tenant someone that i should give away there would you push it to get up to that i would just go into that kind of alt mode and then and the fact that there are members of the flock but yeah which i applaud the other for the goodwill so there's a conflict if the creation of adults but it's often children who play the heaviest price while hundreds even thousands of youngsters who remain trapped and lost in what appears to be the ruins of a self-proclaimed caliphate had seizure and fits along with a few lucky ones who escaped will now hopefully learn how to be happy children.
islamic state has claimed responsibility for friday stepping in brussels and man attacked two soldiers before being shot dead if say it was a thirty year old belgian citizen of somalian origin according to the soldiers he shouted god is greatest in arabic before lashing out he was apparently carrying a copy of the koran and the fake go the instant to place in a crowded district with several bars and restaurants and soldiers have become a common sight on the. it's impossible since last year bombings we heard from a security consultant and an attorney specializing in religious terrorism. the modern vogue for vehicle and or knife attacks is easily explained bombs are difficult bombing components are hard to come by and they're getting harder but so easy to come by well a car or a van or maybe even a large truck or lorry and a knife or
a sword you know these things can't be controlled by authorities terribly successfully not the way that bomb components could be controlled and what some of the leaders in other european countries have said that we just need to quote unquote get used to the fact that this is part of our lives and it's very sad to see that in a continent such as europe which has had so many freedoms has such diversity of different people and has allowed those freedoms has had very very liberal policies that protected the people so it is sad to see that people are now no longer surprised. well while those events were unfolding in brussels on friday night a similar incident was actually taking place in london on this to see it is in the british capital for altie. now know that the mets counter-terrorism command are treating this latest friday evening incident which did occur shortly after eight thirty pm friday evening near buckingham palace where three police officers were injured now what we do know in terms of what exactly and ravelled we the police
have said that a twenty six year old man from luton has pulled up and pulled up in his car up to a police found with three armed police officers who had approached this car and when they did they discovered that the man was trying to pull out a four foot sword while repeatedly shouting allahu akbar now of course a struggle ensued in which the three police officers who again were on arms they were injured two of them had to be taken to hospital the third one sustained my minor injuries and did need to be hospitalized all of the police officers were discharged quite quickly from hospital and we do know that they were able to and capacity this man with a c.s. spray and the attacker is now in custody at a police station in central london this latest incident is one more reason for concern because of course we have to keep in mind that throughout just recent months several terrorist attacks had taken place here in britain.
counter-terrorism expert david lo told us the extremists involved in such an incidence may be acting independently. usually it's right that it's not like it's or expect it before coming here and it looks as though this group has inspired many individuals and when you compare this to spain where clearly there was you know
about ten or so people working together be interesting to see what will come out from this woman so i put it past was this a bit working on their own or do they have some form of assistance it's quite sad thing you know that was the turkey of finland as well last week that was suspected to be a terrorist incident i mean what we're looking at philip i mean one people ask your wife the source why space. if you look at a group like. they have they don't recognize any geographical boundaries if you're not with the you're against them about their philosophy it doesn't matter whether you're a christian or muslim or jew it doesn't matter which are in the city or as regards your nationalism if you look within you're against them and i think this is what we're starting to see you know. the venezuelan president nicolas maduro has condemned the latest us sanctions of negative hatred against his country this is
the only good to have played these measures are part of an economy coupe from has delivered a financial an economy blow against the recovery of the venezuelan economy that once again insanity has been unleashed it's the insanity of in time any swelling hatred of. the new rules by u.s. firms from lending to the venezuelan government and the state's oil company that the toughest measures so far against the country explaining the sanctions the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. accused president madeira of turning venezuela into a dictatorship. it's a strong message for the people of venezuela and it's a strong message to the dural we are not going to tolerate the dictatorship he's trying to create venezuela's president has come out with a very strong reaction to the sanctions that nikki haley is referring to that were signed off on by trump president trump on friday and target the country's energy sector terms national security adviser did comment on the possibility of military
intervention the country there's no such thing really anymore as as only a military option or de or diplomatic option or we're already in economic option we try to integrate all elements together but no military actions are into subpoenaed in the near future and not long ago trump stated that a more physical plan of action could be possible when it comes to the south american country we have many options for that as well and by the way i'm not going to rule out a military option but those comments put trump in direct contradiction to what he himself recently promised when he said the u.s. would no longer participate in nation building and try to force other countries to live and their image we've been moving from one wrecked was it divergent to another we cannot be the policeman of the world we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone we will no longer use american military might to construct democracies in faraway lands would try to rebuild other countries in our own image those days are
now over so government officials in venezuela have criticized the sanctions saying the u.s. is possibly trying to do just that and the sanctions could have consequences prevent as well as people that it has already facing are pretty severe economic crisis so this is just going to agitate the economic situation in the country which is clearly the goal of the truck administration what is unclear is what exactly is their objective certainly a military option has been in the plans of the u.s. government for venezuela for. many years simply because it's a large oil supplying country the us would desperately like to recover control of venezuela's oil industry and as long as there's a government in place in venezuela that refuses to subordinate to us agenda the us will always have a military option on the table in case it's necessary to ensure that they have control over venezuela's oil. venice where his foreign minister hold spoke
exclusively to r.t. he said his country needs to unite against hostile foreign powers. right. now is a moment a decision has to be made whether venezuelans will take our side on the sanctions and be a nation united we need all of our wits about us to withstand the threats and consequences of these actions. the whole region must react in the same way like when we reacted to the threat of force against venezuela we must be ready to use any resources to protect our people we are waiting for a reaction one that corresponds with international law the most essential reaction is that the sovereignty of our country must be respected that there is no need to interfere in venezuela's domestic affairs and that the policy of one sided sanctions that violate international law must not be tolerated.
poland is demanding billions of years from germany and repatriations for the second world war. in fact it could be said that poland is demanding justice we are a victim of the second world war the damage was not repaired in any way just the opposite today talking about her pray sense is a claim for justice and for what belongs to poland so they show a majority of poles support the idea of germany paying compensation for the war the exact sum is unclear but one government estimate put it up more than seven hundred billion euros and this isn't the only issue overshadowing potence relations with this european partners poland has refused to accept migrant quotas imposed by the e.u. this week the polish interior minister blasted the policy saying that except in so many migrants into europe is effectively putting a noose around the continent's neck of the czech republic and hungary have joined poland in resisting my current quotas under the scheme also was supposed to accept
seven thousand refugees but has so far taken in zero. and poland's foreign minister has defended his country's position after a warning from the french president. i think that poland statements are another arrow in the strategy of the country and the manifestation of how this country wants to position itself on the margin of europe's history present and future the state chose today to isolate itself in the functioning progress a few years poland is not isolating itself and has not been isolated it seems to me that president macro in carelessly follows media reports and doesn't know what's going on in our part of europe still it happens sometimes. eastern europe analyst martin summer says poland's refusal to toe the line is causing problems for the e.u. . owns a big country the major player. and of course if the no in cheating with the. european partners there's going to be problems for the down the law and of course
the solution and so from the big players in the european union specifically the germans in the french of course they resent they feel as if they talked down to by the germans and the french and so on they're very skeptical of the policies being pursued by the european union. the migration for example but of course the your opinion it's got lots of other problems to resolve you know. the poles may dislike the european union but they get an awful lot of money from them and if they leave the bloc then the have to find the money from somewhere else. in other news this hour french police say they're finding it difficult to fulfill their duties during the country's lengthy state of emergency because of poor working conditions one offices union even held a photo competition to draw attention to the problem from rats and cockroaches to leaky pipes and damage to quit but the photos show the shocking state of police stations across france in many cases it is apparent that even basic equipment has
become unfit for use ever one hundred fifty photos have already been submitted by this who say their job now lacks dignity. i didn't expect to see such could destroy photos from across france i was aware that working conditions needed improvement but i honestly did not expect to see a car which had done five hundred thousand kilometers or loggers flooded with water that happened in toulouse the girls are no longer adapted for what we now regard is antiterrorist measures there is a police station which is literally falling into the ground the soil is crumbling beneath it no i didn't expect to see such things. well apart from deteriorating working conditions french police are also worried they may not be able to cope with a day of strike action and marches over labor reforms shuttled for next month.
i. was i feel i feel i was. was. more to read of would like to draw the interior minister's attention or the deteriorating working conditions of the french police would also like to inform i was citizens that we cannot carry out our public mission correctly given the fact that we are in the state of emergency now and facing a terrorist threat over the last fifteen years instead of organizing large scale negotiations on security issues our government has limited its budget and implemented small measures the police force in france has been sick for dozens of years and we're not being given an e.
means to change that since the beginning of twenty seventeen two of my colleagues have been burnt alive these tragedies haven't stopped some of my colleagues have been shot by terrorists every day we face violence. the german government has banned a radical left wing website for inciting riots during the recent g. twenty summit in hamburg peter all of a has the details. last month's g twenty and how violent unexpected and ferocious scale for the times seem to catch german security services surprise. that.
far as i can tell and i'm from. i've never seen. the autopsy and why those violent scenes were able to happen so the interior minister here in germany decided to close the website links saying it had been instrumental in the violent scenes that marred the g twenty summit it's as model of first of all it is about a ban of the associations not a news outlet and from now on the operation of the site is with immediate effect a crime even from continues its operation then there will be reason to press charges that will surely follow starting from today. the web site was used to walk in ice attacks on security services as world leaders mixed at the big get together but finding out just where the website was based has proved harder that it may first seem we understand that some two hundred fifty officers were involved in
searching five properties in the area around the city of freiburg as they try to find out the source of where the website was coming from the operation uncovered numerous weapons raging from knives and batons to perception sling shots all things that could be used to cause real damage if in the wrong hands which all begs the. question is this now with the new norm the politically active groups such as and so far involved should we expect the violent scenes we saw in humbug to follow closely behind peter all of. germany. remember you can get your news on the move by downloading the altie app for free on back from here almost to do in just thirty minutes time.
