hello there this is r.t. international broadcasting to you live from the russian capital and they care and good to have you with us. now a small group of russian military police stationed in syria have been caught in a terror ambush according to the defense ministry the russian troops managed to repel al newsroom militants despite being surrounded and heavily outnumbered and this is some of the latest video of the russian strikes targeting al nusra positions as part of the air support for ground forces moskos that the terrorists wanted to capture the units operating inside the deescalation zone margaux reports on the latest from syria. the rebel offensive in north hamad was apparently huge in magnitude supported by tanks by artillery personnel carriers and joined by
hundreds and hundreds of jihad fighters in violation of all established and deescalation deals in northern in. a few details of the rebel offensive. russian military says. around and kept. russian military police monitoring the deescalation. tentative in the area apparently it devolved into a ferocious fighting the group of the group of russian military police just twenty nine people were rounded and outgunned never the less they held their own. as a result of the ambush a platoon of military police numbering twenty nine people was trapped for several hours and was forced to repel enemy attacks despite being outnumbered the russian military police units are said to have withdrawn without casualties the syrian military has gone on the counterattack supported by the russian air force as well
as the syrian air force they say they've killed more than eight hundred fifty hardest fight eleven tanks full armored personnel carriers as well as dozens and dozens of pickup trucks. blunting the significant rebel offensive. and india as well where a massive operation to eliminate remaining terror pockets is ongoing more than eighty five percent of the territory is now under the control of syrian government forces two nearby villages have also been liberated these are the latest updates in of russian defense ministry it also said some parts of the opposition syrian democratic forces are on their way to diaz or to join eisel battalions according to the ministry syrian government troops have been targeted twice from the area controlled by the f.d.a. and the u.s. led coalition well for more on this let's bring in our guests now mr director of
britain's no source a think tank welcome to the program mr work of always good to have you on now the russian defense ministry says that opposition syrian democratic forces have joined i still if this is the case what impact on the ongoing conflict will that have. well the signal beyond this this statement is that the russians are not happy and the syrians are not happy with the ease with which for syria democratic forces has moved or have moved from northern theirs or towards the city apparently there hasn't been any major operations or any operations of toll which suggests some corporation now if this corporation's going to continue then the syrians and the russians would be looking at the same enemy rather than and to a third party like vs the. dices as the arch enemy. it is in the interest of the united states to keep the syrian army out of the eastern side of the euphrates in order to prevent the syrian state from brea gaining the
oil fields and apparently the syrian army offensive backed by russia. and other allies reach their resort prematurely for a u.s. plan to hatch and with which to bring some other fighters along with the s.d.f. and have a major offensive towards deers or from from the north east. so they have to do apparently some you know add you know planning or agreements with. probably give them amnesty later on or whatever we don't know here but this is plausible so now what russia is saying that we cannot tolerate you know the s.d.f. behaving as such and in a sense or in other words we would be starting to consider them as an enemy. so it's no secret that the u.s. has a history with syrian ally is that they back of a support with weapons and training going on to join terrorists or even the lever that to the extremists to fast make
a is in washington now does this why do they continue to train and assist these programs in syria. will not only that not only the direct and in direct cooperation with isis they might to provide for example of one. moderate group quote unquote with weaponry and they would know that for example an affiliated group would come and swallow them later on so in directv the providing something like. with highly sophisticated weaponry but not only that. one year ago just about one year ago the military american military or over american led coalition airplanes attacked for more than an hour the stronghold of the syrian army around there is or it's it was an artillery unit to preventing guys from completing the surrounding of the syrian army and it basically meant that the more
isis could break the siege of course into two and isolate the airport from the city for about nine months before the syrian army could again liberated so they were trying apparently to attack by mistake as they declared the syrian army and they would know that once this position. would go then it would be very hard for the syrian army to repel a very good. attack and then the syrian army would disappear from their resort this of course didn't happen and now they are faced with the fact that the syrian army is determined along with russia and other allies to gain much of the control of the city of theirs or of course the province as a total i must have a very short on time but i'd like to ask you just one more question on the defense ministry moscow also said that syria forces have been targeted twice from an area that's done to s.d.f. an us led coalition controlled very briefly if you can tell us what you make of
that. well it's just probably a natural result of the understandings that seem to be taking place in the east of there is or between the advancing is the air forces and and we need to understand the situation there as tribes that communicate with each other and say well probably we don't want to go back to the syrian government can we have some refuge with yourselves yes well if you give us a safe passage and cooperate and we've heard also rumors of the air forces apparently arab tribes as well you know defecting from is the if in going you know towards die and so the situation is very fluid there but what is clear is that there is no confrontation apparently as per the russian intelligence and drone footage and i think that is taking place in eastern ukraine so this is again raising suspicion that there is a bit of corp going on which would lead to the force of the russians and the
syrians to consider as dangerous as so we'll see but this seems to be heading towards a confrontation ok thank you for your your thoughts on this this is the i'm not what have to rectify the no source thing tak think tank thank you very much. thank you. take you to catalonia now at tensions over the upcoming independence referendum are reaching a boiling point after a day of arrests and raids spain's prime minister scotland's to abandon what he called an impossible dream. there are democratic those in charge of the catalan government who will be. challenge to our current systems on elsom to cease in the illegal activities they should abandon their objectives they now know that this referendum cannot be organize it was never legal all legitimate it is now no more than an impossible dream or what is worse the excuse that some seem to have found to deepen the splits that they have provoked in cattle on society.
was meanwhile that eight hour standoff in barcelona between police and demonstrators ended with officers abandoning attempt to enter the office of the region's king pro independence party apparently without an official warrant the region's president branded recent moves by spanish authorities as coordinated aggression and accuse madrid of putting in place a state of emergency in the region. that look at the year i started. to catalan government has been subjected today to a coordinated aggression committed by the police forces directed by the spanish interior ministry the objective has been to stop the catalan society to express themselves freely and didn't peace on the first of october this aggression is outside of the law it damages the state of law and all of the constitutional
guarantees and also damages the european union bill on human rights in the last few days and particularly today the spanish state has suspended the self rule of catalonia and has put in place a state of emergency. for wednesday's crackdown sparked protests across the country the largest took place in the catalan capital barcelona with some forty thousand people taking to the streets local journalists colors dress was there for us. we are in the center of the margins right now is taking place in the heart of arcelor not be aware of thousands of catalans are on the streets you are invited to participate during these mourning because of the pressure of the national government we remember that this morning when your t.v. in the started to came in to different places around the city looking for
information and people in there a friend that will take place first of all. just citizens of barcelona reacted spontaneously to what they say is an attack to democracy and a freedom of speech. i came here today because i was born in a castle on my grandparents' account salon's my language is the catalogue and i am is here in this land and today this land is attacked by all the democratic ways possible from the spanish states to push me but it hit forty years ago we had an dictator today we have another actually there are quite a few in the government but i mean this is a repression i couldn't believe it when i sold the news so we left everything and came here i think it is a really important moment and we should be here on the streets we're sending in peaceful message and we need to express ourselves as other cities like join our side they were taken by sea the sense asking for the right of voting on the
referendum the affairs of. a majority is the range of measures an attempt to stop the referendum from taking place it declared the upcoming vote illegal and conducted numerous raids to see progress to end the material currently more than seven hundred mazz are under investigation over their support for the vote and most recently madrid's announced plans to take control of cut alone is budget in order to ensure. money won't be spent on spent on referendum purposes well let's take a closer look now whilst spain could lose if catalonia does become independent well while the region makes up only about six percent of spain's territory with sixteen percent of the population living there it accounts for one fifth of the country's and tired tax revenue and a quarter of all exports a member of the barcelona city council believes the international community should be stepping in to prevent madrid abusing the region they don't want to let us vote
but people are voting with their feet they are actually crossing the street going over to wherever the intervention has taken place and defending the institutions from the street massively this is an attack on democracy this is actually a state of exception we are the military police are intervening in the normal democratic functioning of the catalan institutions and this is why our people are on the street blocking the entrance to some of these institutions saying that whoever enters will not be able to come out unless the people suffering right now and in the street allow them to come out and we ask the international community to intervene and stop this abuse this abuse on the catalan people on the markets in catalonia and in europe in general this concerns all of us because right now it's
catalonia tomorrow it could be the rest of spain or even other places in europe. transform my campaign chair was wiretapped by the u.s. government both before and after the election c.n.n. of supporting and that's just six months after the president was mocked for claiming his residence was times welcome to obama tapped my phone ireland population present. c.n.n. has learned that investigators wiretapped former trump campaign chairman paul made a fort under secret court order both before and after the twenty sixteen election to recap now in march the president tweeted that had learned about why it stopped him at trump tower when in this latest report c.n.n. says this was done because his campaign was yet again suspected of quote having ties with russia former campaign former campaign chair paul manifolds now and
demanding the justice department immediately probe the obama administration's actions on reports. trump's former campaign manager may have been wiretapped by the f.b.i. c.n.n. citing its sources says that paul man a fourth was wiretapped before and after the u.s. election under a warrant issued by the foreign intelligence surveillance act this sounds serious but remember how no one took trump seriously after he claimed he was tapped where is the proof i mean it was an idiotic and here it's a great he wasn't going to hold anybody radionic where did trump get these ideas where is he getting his information we have a quote ridiculous unquote president well now it turns out that perhaps donald trump wasn't losing his mind after all especially when you take into account that paul man a fourth has a residence at trump tower now the c.n.n. report about the f.b.i. spying on metaphor it could of course be wrong but if it isn't it suggests that
lawmakers from both parties and leaders of the intelligence community misled the public i have not seen any evidence that this has occurred intelligence committee has not seen evidence of this is occurred what the president charged president obama with wiretapping him it's not true there was no such wiretap to be mounted against the president the president worked at the time or as a candidate or against his campaign they can't talk about wiretapping or trumped scandals it up throwing russia in there somewhere the c.n.n. report suggests that data collected from spying on paul manna for it shows that he encouraged russia to help out with trump's campaign the spokeswoman for russia's ministry of foreign affairs says she can't wait to hear what comes next do you see russia's role you're right to legitimize illegal actions without this external factor it would be a new watergate but with this foreign madly the story was signed on they only have national security the finale will be spectacular can't wait to see it now there's
a lot of contradicting claims from a lot of high ranking people at the. point there's a lot of key players involved obama trump man a for the democrats the republicans and the russians now paul man of ford says he wants an investigation to help clear things up but it could easily have the opposite effect. artsy new york. bomb making advice from retail giant amazon and an explosive story coming up after this short break stay with us. but i want to show you on the idea that dropping bombs brings us to the chicken hawks forcing you to fight the battle. to do so for the tell you that what we gossip publicly. advertising telling you are not cool enough to buy their product. that
