back they feel let down of course it was only two three years ago when i saw forces were literally ten fifteen kilometers from this very city so no matter what seems to be this increase in rhetoric these are incredible threats that are coming not only from the baghdad government from all the regional players certainly the people here on the ground in arab l. and the kurdish regional government pushing forward. remain determined and seen thus far relatively on phased by by these threats. for which i'll give this one now why this just dropped i'm not sure we can confirm it yet they rocky haven't is apparently given kurdistan of three days to hand over the control of after a void in international air and back at us according to state television as if i don't have that confirmed but watching general do you expect the response to be from the iraqi prime minister as he said on monday not that he wasn't prepared to talk to them about the results of the referendum. well as we're expecting
comments from him in his weekly address prime minister about it later the saving any minute now in fact the rhetoric from him is very strong and as you mentioned we can't confirm that line coming out of baghdad with respect to air space but it has been mentioned by parliamentarians it was mentioned yesterday himself mentioned it as well after visiting or meeting with military officials. all these kind of threats these kind of sanctions it's one thing saying them it's another thing implementing them i mean to put some sort of international embargo on flights here in there in erbil would would basically imply some sort of movement into the city to try and take control of the airport and what is becoming clear that although all sides the rhetoric is increasing. certainly analysts are saying this is probably an
indication as well of the respective leaders playing to their respective domestic audiences the turkish president is in order one obviously has huge fears about any kind of move towards independence here amongst the kurds in iraq. with the huge kurdish population in his country in particular an organization that not only turkey but the international community considers to be a kurdish terrorist organization the p.k. k. so it's no good to one sitting back and letting this happen and of course we have an election here in iraq next year. the iraqis will go to the polls and vote for a new government in iraq so there's no way that prime minister labadee cannot be seen to be ramping up the rhetoric and making these kind of threats that's certainly what analysts are saying and as i say the people that we've been speaking on the street remain resolute and relatively calm but it is
a very worrying situation here and let's not forget that it's not only the regional players in this in this crisis that have condemned this referendum but it is fundamentally the entire international community trying to thank you very much indeed. israeli forces have raided the home of the palestinian gunman who opened fire at the entrance of a jewish settlement in the occupied west bank the attack killed three israeli security offices and wounded another before being shot dead very force that has more. the aftermath of a deadly attack in the occupied west bank this gate is used every day by palestinian workers employed inside the illegal israeli settlement of har adar police say at around seven a.m. on tuesday one of the group pulled out a hand gun and fired on security forces guarding the entrance as a result and for twenty three israelis were killed pronounced dead at the scene by emergency units a fourth person was taken to hospital in serious condition the attacker. was shot

escalates north korean foreign minister has accused the u.s. president donald trump of declaring war but the white house says that's absurd has more from moscow. although the russian foreign ministry announced on tuesday that it was working behind the scenes to bring the north korean crisis to some sort of political resolution we don't know much more because they're not releasing any further information however we have heard also on tuesday from the north korean embassy here in moscow that a delegation is arriving from pyongyang of foreign ministry officials to have talks with their russian counterparts and that the pyongyang delegation includes the head of the north american directorate russia's perspective on north korea is that it's sanctions against it are running out of steam that a war on the peninsula would be catastrophic and that the language used by donald trump is essentially irresponsible it would like to see a few more carrots being used in this situation and not so many sticks and i think
that it will try to use its political and economic leverage with north korea to try and diffuse the situation perhaps dangle some incentives in front of them like gas contracts already grayling's or perhaps increasing the number of north koreans allowed to work in russia basically things that might help the north korean economy and try to persuade them to back away from the march to war. rock's plan is to hard about a statement let's take a listen there will never change our priorities but we will continue to liberate our lands from iceland and recently we have done that and in the very near future we will continue that and we will liberate as much as
we can in. the lands occupied by. and even the national road has also been liberated and the pressures are ongoing as you know the progress of our forces is quiet and goes according to plan we will never abandon the unity of iraq we will never abandon the. territories and the constitution has stated that iraq is one the unity of iraq must be maintained and we start from the point of strong iraq the weak iraq will make all of us wait the new iraq will be for the iraqis and not the way during the era of saddam and now the strong iraq is to protect
its son and daughters and to protect the citizens of iraq i said we need not the weak iraq some people are planning to have a weak iraq and this is wrong there are. during the last fourteen. years you have seen some militias some people in some govern raise some people in some bridges. they want to iraq to be weak and this is completely rejected and the iraqis have rejected that that this is the general mood in the come train we are all again is to find an ism and we are all against. these sick terrorists sick tarion aspects in the country and we need to make sure that we are all was
better and we need to make sure of that we need to be better as iraq a not to be better as one sector alone might is has the more you are good to. god the more you prefer as a citizen and as a country we need to work for the welfare of the iraq as a whole and we have a lot of moderates who lost their lives for the sake of iraq and the unity of iraq the referendum is not for that. i still are still.
