a week of rhetoric politicians promising that turkey was going to attack a free to rid of the y.p. g. kurdish fighters that i'm pro considers terrorists but they're also the u.s. is best ally on the ground in fighting eisel regardless of international complications turkey is fully committed to this offensive we're in turkey's border with africa and throughout the day we've heard the sound of jets in the sky also intense artillery and machine gun fire outgoing from a turkish base behind that mountain other why p.g. are extremely well trained they know the terrain in offering but turkey has superiority when it comes to the skies and that gives it a huge advantage. belligerence here heard the airstrikes late on saturday as turkey started its offensive and they are a little uneasy. over those. all the way we are right next to the action with planes flying over our heads and there's a lot of shelling of course we are confident that at the end of the day anything could happen shells have already fallen in turkey so we are worried this could
9:04 pm
happen here. turkey says it will continue its operation until it's pushed the why p.g. away from its borders no one knows how long that will take what the implications may be stephanie decker al-jazeera on the turkey syria border. now to our other top story this hour the taliban is saying it was behind an overnight attack on a hotel in the afghan capital which killed at least eighteen people gunmen stormed the intercontinental hotel in kabul on saturday night targeting foreigners and government officials jennifer glass reports from kabul. explosions and gunfire lasted for hours as afghan special forces moved through the hotel guests trapped in their room new sheets and curtains to try to escape the attackers intent on bloodshed and murder. no more down for the weekend there were people and children inside the hotel rooms the attackers were knocking on the door eight room to reach their targets they killed many people and officials told them they were taught that
9:05 pm
in foreigners especially. as the fighting intensified and grenades and gunshots echoed around the hotel some mula high call could only wait for it to end his brother cari hussein was trapped inside and had stopped answering his phone to put up with. them he told me he locked himself in a room it's very difficult with a family member trapped inside and it's tragic and pain free it's something fortunately things happen it's not just about many other people are a travesty and i hope to see him and i hope this fighting in a country ends. on the roof of the hotel afghan soldiers signaled the end of the fighting by waving an afghan flag almost immediately i call her from his brother missy. but marjon was not as lucky a visiting cousin had jumped from a hotel balcony she thought he was alive but couldn't find him in any hospital she says she looked online before discovering who was doing. all i know
9:06 pm
it's difficult to be on afghanistan my cousin lived in holland three came here for just and this tragic incident happened all as afghan forces and international advisers left the area officials headed into the hotel to assess the damage and look for casualties and survivors this is an attack that unfolded in the public eye live on t.v. and watched by hundreds on the streets the afghan president commended afghan security forces saying they'd done all they could to minimize the number of casual . he wants an investigation into how the attackers got into the hotel the question also is how they did so with enough weapons for a sixteen hour siege jennifer glass and al jazeera cover. well for more on this story let's speak to some of he is the senior advisor to the chief executive of afghanistan also the former afghan ambassador to france and canada he joins us live
9:07 pm
from washington d.c. thanks very much for speaking to us so the taliban have claimed to have carried out this attack but you also have a very powerful haqqani network and a branch of i cell operating in afghanistan which group is most likely to have done this well the taliban have claimed responsibility. to the afghan people's eyes there's not much of a difference between these three groups especially between the hakani group and the taliban their corner groups supposed to be a part and parcel of the taliban. one of their main leaders is a deputy to the thought of one leader having said this i think that at this point the afghan people who are very frustrated who are very angry who demand justice in demand accountability. they want to see the government perform its task in his duties i think that they're want an investigation full investigation they want to know what happened why these people were able to reach the hotel and what happened
9:08 pm
with security especially knowing that the u.s. had put out in a murder just a few days ago that major hotels could be targets right so that leads to the question of how there can be such a serious breach of security when it's clear that those who are fighting the americans and the afghan. and the afghan government see the hotel like this as a very clear and attractive target. well one of the reasons why the afghans are very angry and frustrated demand accountability is that this is not the first time this hotel itself has been attacked once before and we have seen over the last few years it's paid off attacks suicide attacks terrorist attacks on soft targets of all kinds from hospitals to universities to mosques and to markets in other places hotels being one of them so the afghan people demand answers and they
9:09 pm
want action they want to make sure that the afghans and afghan government as well as the international allies perform and i think that the afghan government and we can commend the afghan forces for they have done because he performed very well under the circumstances but at the end of the day people think that this should no longer happen it has happened too often has been repeated too often too much blood has been spilled in this mostly civilians and that this is not acceptable anymore. will there in washington d.c. and i'm very interested to get your view on how the administration is going to see all of this because we have seen president with hold aid and funding to pakistan saying that that just not doing enough to crack down on terror organizations on a networks like the haqqani group how might they view this. i think they have
9:10 pm
to take it very seriously you know the americans mr trump have come up with the new strategy per se or saying that they are more serious about going after the main targets that have found safe havens in pakistan they have asked pakistan to take action pakistan. is sort of not doing much different than what it used to do in the past it's passing on the buck to others in shifting responsibility i think the afghan people have always pointed to pakistan as being a source of many of the problems not all the problems with many of the problems in terms of security in afghanistan and the americans now. i'm sure feel the heat and the pressure because the afghans are looking at the americans. plus nato with a presence in afghanistan and commitments that have been made so on one hand it's the afghan government that needs to do more and the other hand the international
9:11 pm
community needs to be more serious about what it is sources where are they coming from who is organizing who is funding who is. training arming in all of this you know unless we find answers and unless we go after those sources we're not going to stop this i'm on and i saw it today as a sign that sadly that the fact seems to be that. the afghan war has come at such a huge human and financial cost yet after all these years some sixteen years later even the capital is seeing such instability do attacks like this one strengthen u.s. resolve or does it make them think that the afghan war is a lost cause. no i think it strengthens resolve across the board we are in a war zone kabul is unfortunately in a war zone it's not secure i think that the afghan institutions including especially intelligence in the security institutions need to be looked into as to
9:12 pm
why it is that they are unable to prevent such attacks are the same time there is there is responsibility on the international community knowing that just recently the security council members were in kabul looking at the situation that they need to be more serious about what is happening now pakistan has huge responsibilities because it is considered to be a safe haven for many of these groups so what needs to be done is the question that diplomats have to take care of as well as the military that is on the ground in afghanistan american military need to afghan military in terms of securing afghanistan further and making sure that the afghan forces are up to the job all right well on our side in washington thank you now jordan's king abdullah has appealed to the u.s. vice president to rebuild trust and confidence after the trumpet ministrations
9:13 pm
decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital and says the u.s. still believes in a two state solution to the israel palestine conflict and has arrived in israel is expected to receive a mixed welcome ari force as mill from occupied east jerusalem. on the second leg of his regional visit the u.s. vice president was keen to offer assurances to a major middle east an ally and by extension to the palestinians who refused to meet him on the issue of jerusalem we are committed to continue to respect jordan's role as the custodian of holy sites that we take no position on boundaries in final status those are subject to negotiation and and as i think clearly you are the president make clear the world you know the states of america remains committed if the parties agree to a two state solution through the arab world's public outrage with a recognition by u.s. president donald trump of jerusalem as israel's capital the jordanian king offered a conciliatory tone your visits here i'm sure is to rebuild the trust confidence in
9:14 pm
not only how we move forward two state solution on the us drew forth like sixty seven lice and he's jewish but as a capital of it and a palestinian state but living side by side with a secure recognisance ready course for international peace and that's far from the line being taken by the palestinian leadership its president mahmoud abbas declaring that the u.s. had given it the slap of the century reiterating his position that the u.s. could no longer be involved in the peace process the u.s. vice president isn't meeting the palestinians but he does have a message publicly apparently tailored towards them reiterating u.s. support for a two state solution if that's what both sides agreed to of course for the palestinians that message is entirely overshadowed by what donald trump said over a month ago declaring that the u.s. view jerusalem as israel's capital. but many the messenger himself is part of the problem the shift in u.s. policy with which pence was closely associated was welcomed by his evangelical
9:15 pm
christian base many of whom believe the return of the jews to the holy land is a precursor to jesus' second coming and says they're and gender that is extremist fundamentalist looked. christian absolutist idiology which goes against all the believes and commitments of the arab and palestinian christians and particular and they feel that they have been betrayed by somebody who is kneeling. to mend this injustice using dillard's and as a justification for israelis it's a different picture hence represents a u.s. administration that recognized what they see as an uncontroversial reality jerusalem status is the capital of. a great friend of the state of israel arrives here this evening a true friend united states vice president mike pence we welcome him here and i'm looking forward to our discussions we will discuss the trumpet ministrations
9:16 pm
efforts to hold iran's aggression the iranian nuclear program and ways to advance peace and security in the region. thank you for the warm welcome before leaving jordan for israel pence visited u.s. troops didn't undisclosed location on the syrian border telling the president how the back and that isis would be driven from the earth very soon his next speech would be to the israeli parliament the knesset on monday israeli palestinian representatives have vowed to boycott the event amounts are a force that how does iraq occupied east jerusalem. with a new ally for months to come for you. the goetia president is like negotiating with. lots of finger pointing among politicians in the u.s. over who's to blame for the government shutdown the canny exit. of the here in zimbabwe overshadowed by concerns of the opposition leader's health
9:17 pm
and then later in sports. gets his golf season off to a winning start in singapore these helseth. at least five people have died in anti-government demonstrations organized by catholic church leaders in the democratic republic of congo around sixty nine people have been arrested to protest to say president joseph kabila is violating the constitution by staying in office beyond his term two people were killed during a similar protest in the capital on new year's eve catherine sorie is in contrast so. this streets in the copy talk in shasta has now been cleared but it has been all day a huge presence of police and president the presidential guard against stone throwing protesters we saw priests and washes from this main catholic church in the
9:18 pm
city despotic by police using tear gas as they marched along with their rules are by walls and tweaks in their peaceful protest in the east police lopes tear gas inside a charge several people injured there is while a lot of people are very frustrated with the political situation in the country and they're looking more to the charge for guidance and leadership if you remember the charge brokered this political deal between the opposition and ruling parties back in place to sixteen the deal was to see an election a presidential election in last december that did not happen the deal has expired that's why the catholic church leadership he's so angry and saying that they are going to continue calling on their faithful to come out in peaceful protest. demanding for electoral justice demanding full of politicians to respect the constitution and also for president joseph kabila to peacefully step down because
9:19 pm
he's minded has expired and he is not illegal to run for a third tom. well now the u.s. president says republicans should change the senate rules if a government shutdown continues money for federal agencies was caught off on saturday off to congress failed to pass a funding bill despite a republican party majority so roland jordan is following developments for us from washington and all this certainly punctuates first year in office roslyn what are the prospects for hashing out a deal. not very good mario and in fact the senate has just come back into session with the planned vote to once again try to pass some sort of a continuing resolution or short term budget at about zero six g g m t. on monday it's highly unlikely that this is the second attempt will pass because
9:20 pm
the democrats in the senate have sensually dug in their heels and say that they've been trying to negotiate with the white house and they're not getting anywhere and so they're not going to will yield and give a republicans what they want which are of course things that the report the democrats don't want which is a big change in the way that certain children who were brought to this country by their parents without proper papers are being treated right now in the legal system as well as the funding for very poor children's health insurance they say they're not going to yield on that sense republicans for their part marri him say that democrats are being the obstructionists and that innocent people are going to be hurt so just to be care about this there had been some expectation that lawmakers might be able to reach a deal before monday but as you say the. likelihood of a compromise is not looking at all positive at this point what is can you give us
9:21 pm
a flavor of the conversations that are going on right now between lawmakers. well it's not clear that lawmakers are actually engaged in any robust discussions much less negotiations representatives from both political parties were on the sunday public affairs shows here in the united states and they essentially accused people in the other party of not negotiating in good faith of dragging their feet on passing these funding bills for the health care program for very poor children for dealing with the immigration problem involving the so-called dreamers as well as dealing with the overall funding budget for u.s. government operations and in fact the vice president mike pence while he was visiting u.s. forces on the border between turkey and syria basically used them as a political prop which is something that the u.s. president is not or the vice president are not supposed to do and basically said
9:22 pm
that congressional democrats are basically holding up paychecks for u.s. troops and said that the president and the vice president would do all they could in order to get their pay restored so it's really become a quite vociferous debate there had been some hope that perhaps they could get these issues worked out by the end of the day on monday but it's looking very unlikely right now thanks very much enjoy and with all that a test as that u.s. government shutdown continues. gemini social democrats voted to go into formal talks about a grand coalition with angela merkel's conservatives delegates narrative approved a step at a conference and on some unagi they shouldn't prop up another medical government she's been unable to form a coalition since the elections in september domenic cain reports from dawn. it was a vote with profound implications for the social democrats for germany and perhaps
9:23 pm
the e.u. by a clear but not necessarily large majority martin schulze now has the authority to enter formal negotiations with anglo american the platform slogans proclaimed a new time needs a new politics but on offer was much of the same old government in a wide ranging speech should spelt out why another coalition with miracle was the best option float near zero. believe me this has been easy for anyone but i never doubted for a moment that we should follow the play of the president mitterrand was the way out of this difficult political situation as a social democrat it is my firm conviction that in this exceptional situation we must at least try to drive the outcome for the people of germany and the euro mind . that many in the hall and in the wider party did not agree perhaps the most vocal opposition came from the party's youth movement lloyd has been absolutely i'm sure our people negotiated well it's a reason i and many of those in an outside this room is not happy with olds it's
9:24 pm
not because they did bad work but because after twelve years of anger and eight years of grand coalition we no longer have the same views on result issues this conference is opens up some very clear divisions inside this party between the party leadership and the rank and file between those prepared to compromise and those who aren't and between the younger generation and the older one some analysts believe the current leader has to bear responsibility for what we see what is there he is very good support thought market choice and not it was clear he is. not a party to look at the future i would say i would actually you can call him yesterday's man as of today and yet as of tomorrow schultz will be the leader who takes his divided party formally into negotiations with the christian democrats but the final deal which then emerges must be passed by a ballot of the entire party membership and if sunday's vote is anything to go by
9:25 pm
that may not be easy dominic cain al-jazeera bon well as welcome the s.p. days decision to go ahead with the coalition talks saying they'll start as soon as possible. once is the fun. for us it's important in the coalition talks that germany has a stable government that can deal with issues facing us in the future for me vicki issues include economic strength especially the necessary changes that we need in this is. as the foundation for social justice and security the negotiations will be within the framework of the preliminary agreement already reached with the social democrats many issues remain to be resolved in detail and much shorter require intensive discussions on a living to zimbabwe where the opposition m.d.c. alliance is holding its first rally of the year but concerns are growing about the health of the opposition leader morgan tsvangirai president of the zanu p.f. as promised old elections within five months long time leader robert mugabe was
9:26 pm

9:27 pm
some people are also concerned about. opposition alliance the crowd is a couple of hundred meet will easily in the positive manage to do a lot better because people who are entitled. the opposition over the issue was a certain race so i get out if he's no longer able to read it and it's not me not to be elections we told him it's not the moment you become a citizen not threaten to leave that's not everything the swirling model not if they're not the ones put onto the internet and business is a lot at stake the only opposition the line is not publicly expending is that what is everything is ok because they want to talk about it back in the country so you know right before the elections again come out of the terminal that they're going to also not at the bottom of the watching al-jazeera still have this hour we're going to be live in peru at francis is choose to fly home because the whole trip been overshadowed by a scandal in chile. was in two thousand exhibit spot an uncertain future for this

9:33 pm

9:34 pm
a second for abusing children in this organization of the sled. and so the pope hasn't spoken about that and there has been of course criticism about that. just briefly. there was a real sense in chile that people was stung by the comments the pope made about the sex abuse scandal you mention is that in danger of really overshadowing this whole trip. i think it has an endangered of it has overshadowed the trip in general possibly the comments by the pope or just before he left it to you live when he said that he didn't know that because that's key that there was no proof that this bishop was covering up a paedophile priest. has really overshadowed this trip and this specially house. has produced

9:41 pm
message to all that is it is international leaders and to the united nations the gaza strip will collapse and and we need immediate help if the economy collapses impacts everywhere health education and whole services. business been a listening and they want to take part they say things are getting desperate and there's no money in the economy. all god's eye will be closed we will be on strike and we want the world to listen to know our suffering and help us to find a solution gaza is reaching breaking point. but any impact of the strike outside of gaza is likely to be small whether the international community and the world are going to listen or not but i think this is a direct message to israel who is besieging and blockading the gaza strip to pay attention to what is happening in terms of the humanitarian crisis that is happening here in gaza for more than ten years the gaza strip has been under siege
