9:03 pm
in fighting eisel. this new move by damascus in africa could mean its allied militia directly confronts turkish troops turkey's foreign minister was defiant yes in the name of the regime is in train their claims p k k m p y d and there are no problems however if i come in to defend the why p.g. the nothing and nobody can stop us the supplies to efren as well as members into the east of the euphrates river the developments when set behind the scenes negotiations the details of which are unclear if the kurds are going to accept the major conditions of the syrian regime will decide on that very heavy weapons. dance artillery and rocket launchers will they be exiting the city because the syrian regime is syria democratic forces to exit the city and to move to the east of the euphrates the kurdish why p.g. holds the areas in yellow which include the region of africa in the green areas
9:04 pm
land controlled by the syrian opposition supported by turkey and they are advancing on africa and under the turkish operation olive branch president assad's government controls the area to the south and the i.p.g. is territory to the east of the euphrates is where the us has military bases and personnel on the ground syria's seven year war seems to have entered a new phase with the foreign powers who have long backed different sides trying to solidify their spheres of influence stephanie decker al-jazeera. takis president has discussed the operation in two separate phone calls with the leaders of iran and russia are shipped out of one warned me of putin over the actions of the syrian government which is russia's ally some avenge of aid has more from istanbul the first batch of kurdish fighters has reached the city of free and that's according to s.d.f. which is a u.s. backed force and these kurdish fighters have travelled from the city of aleppo this is a city which is under the control of the syrian government forces so syrian fighters
9:05 pm
have been saying that this group proves their point that kurdish fighters off the white people's protection units have been allied with the syrian government all along there is expectations that more convenience of pro-government militias not regular syrian government forces will do the city of against this operation that has been launched by the turkish forces called all of branch on the diplomatic front we've been hearing from presidential sources that the turkish president has been speaking to his russian counterpart and he's told them that there will be consequences if the syrian government continues on its path this is the part that the foreign minister had also alluded to saying that the turkish government has no problem with the syrian government contains and controls its own territory and borders but it will have a problem and it will confront anyone who allies itself with the with these kurdish fighters that turkey sees as terrorists from on this so we can speak to camera nati
9:06 pm
news a senior lecturer in international relations at sussex university thanks very much for being with us so how significant is a change is it to have turkish forces potentially allying with the kurds in that region against the turkish offensive. it's quite significant but they get a lot really depends on the details of this agreement and whether or not russia is on board because if russia is indeed supporting this deployment that means that in case of an attack by turkish forces on syrian forces enough ring then and that would be you know russia will act in defense of its allies or more. easily you can close air space. full of top turkish air force to operate we should make any military operation by turkey very difficult because that's the superior joelle force is what what has given them the edge on the other hand i think the
9:07 pm
kurds by this move. are trying to force also americans hand because america has refused to defend them enough in my saying that they are just in the east of euphrates and that they're not there is own the design of russia in practical terms so that essentially sending this message that we can actually make a deal with our side which is seen by united states as a problem and that he has to go india and also it means that under current details which are leaking this syrian government actually does not take control of that kind of the region as a whole but simply deploy sets of some forces that means that the kurds they're still remain in control and on the ground and that that is very something which is very unacceptable on the paper to have one of them is inching is that a really big pushback has never get from turkey against this and we've had a decade turkish deputy prime minister and ask him it saying that that it would be a disaster for the region if this went ahead and they talked about serious
9:08 pm
consequences for syria if this happens what exactly he attacks are going to do in reaction to this. well i think that as i said it depends on if russia ends up actually approving or defending this deployment i don't think ticket can do much because that would mean they are simply not able to confront russia militarily especially in terms of using desir you have space but on the other hand i think behind the scenes what is happening is the division between russia on the one hand and iran and to some extent the assad regime on the other hand is deepening in terms of post-war was pretty structuring and situation in syria and iran is increasingly feeling that it's being marginalized in the post-war construction and geo political arrangement within syria so it's trying to actually game same russia which needs turkey in order to arrange a kind of successful exit from syria and at the moment you know way iran by helping
9:09 pm
and supporting assad to do this deal with the kurds you know was kind of frustrating some of russia's plans you know order to regain its position it sees as bright fill in terms of its help for floor syrian regime and i think if the deployment is based on this limited knowledge of this limited nature it in the end strengthens the kurds hand because they retain effective control and they actually kind of continue on saying that they want a federal decentralized in which they have effective control on the ground but there are many parts of syria as a state and that is something acceptable to your side and get do you see it in times i mean there's always been a risk of a kind of wider conflict because of all the various countries that are involved in this that they end up fighting each other do you think there's more of a risk of that now would you think this this is just a kind of or a small section of the conflict which is leading up to the country's century being carved up between the various phases in films i think there is the center has
9:10 pm
always existed but in this particular case i think it's particular is this scale aging precisely because technically because of domestic consumption. and there actually did have had internally in terms of removing one p.j. from africa india can't settle for anything less than a kind of decisive victory hundred other hand if this turns out into a confrontation between turkey ministers russia syria iran over this particular round then then that's very difficult to achieve so you know way so if state is there is locke's has locked in itself into its own rhetoric domestically which makes it very difficult to make concessions at this point and that makes the whole situation more explosive come on much and thank you very much indeed to feel thoughts nice of you thank you letter and the seventy one people have been killed by as strikes in eastern according to the monitoring group syrian observatory for human rights local observers believe the attacks are a prelude to a major offensive on the rebel held territory which has been under siege since

9:36 pm
cultural or medical grounds in various parts of the world the legality of circumcising baby boys who are unable to give consent for the procedure has been debated before but iceland would be the first european country to ban it. and jonathan is the president of the board of deputies of british jews here in london a group that represents the u.k.'s jewish community thanks so much need for coming to talk to us so the person who put this bill forward said that this settlement circumcision violates the rights and bodily integrity of children what's your response to that if you look at the convention the united nations convention on the rights of the child he emphasizes many times that a child has the right to be brought up in his or her own religious and cultural environment so actually we argue that contrary to the icelandic ministers few actually we have a right to be circumcised when we are very very young girl especially if she goes on to say is that it's fine to have those beliefs but she says that it's in asia to
9:37 pm
be able to choose when you are at a point where you can make that decision willingly what would be the argument against doing it later on. much more potent for much more hazardous medical evidence is that the best time to perform circumcision which is a very minor procedure is when a child is eight days old which is exactly when jewish people do it because that's when we're commanded to do it in the bible and so what about the i mean that i think what she has pointed out is that she realized that actually that there was no restriction on male circumcision in arson even though female circumcision had been outlawed in two thousand and five isn't a degree of i mean actually that it should be equal no there's no parallel whatsoever circumcision is a very minor procedure that causes no harm at the time or lost in harm female circumcision on the other hand is a very intrusive procedure that is

a mutilation of the woman's sexual organs it causes search should learn urine re problems and paid for almost all women who have it done for the rest of their life it's criminalized in this country and rightly so so what about the i mean the precedent that this might set if it does go through when i send you are you concerned that other countries might follow suit we are concerned because the irony is this is coming from the most liberal countries in europe taking the very deliberate practice of banning something because you don't agree with it what about smoking so i mean in terms of just to go back to the kind of the medical side of it and it has been debated in the past that sort of been people saying or the american . academy of pediatrics concluded in twenty twelve that there were health benefits of new born male circumcision but it then went on to say that actually the benefits were not found to be great enough to recommend universal newborn circumcision so it's not something that people can say medically this isn't a good idea so it really is going to be only on sort of cultural or religious

grounds that people want to do it well there's nothing wrong with cultural or religious grounds when it doesn't do harm and it has a degree of good will. the american pediatric association finding was that in developing countries where health and sanitation is good there are huge benefits because a massively reduced incidence of a child which is probably why across africa it's been a cultural custom for hundreds of years of privately with their german our chris thank you very much for talking to thank you our hungary's prime minister has kicked off his election campaign by calling for a global alliance against migration bitter organs nationalist party is pushing for a third consecutive victory in april's election the right wing politician has been increasingly at odds with the e.u. and the united nations over letting refugees stay in his country during his campaign speech or one said eastern and western europe were heading in different
