border. the most crucial phase of the turkish russian agreement on a safe zone in north eastern syria is underway there joint patrols will fill the void left by the withdrawal of the largely kurdish syrian democratic forces or as the last month turkish backed opposition fighters swept through s.d.f. territory they now control an area that stretches from tel aviv to arthur lane along the border with turkey the joint patrols will be conducted west and east of that area. they include the outskirts of could by any man bit telerate fired and all towns and villages east of us a lane to maliki on the border with iraq. syrian president bashar al assad has promised to recapture all the territory including even if it means going to war with turkey both of us will use the whole the syrian land is wired and the theater
of operations is one from the far south to the far north the turk is the american agent in this war we were fighting this agent turkey everywhere and whenever it struggled to do what it wanted it left no option but war this is obvious but i say we will need to keep open the opportunity for the political process in all its forms and if it didn't produce results then we consider them an enemy and it will get to war there is no other option for. this is tell of recently taken over by turkish back syrian national army or as they 80 years since the start of the conflict in syria the city has changed hands many times. our assault demand and that of our people since the start of the revolution is the downfall of the dictator who has killed people and destroyed the country and for the time being russia and turkey would have a biggest say in northeastern syria the only reason syrian government troops are struggling to bring under their control russia back. and rejects any attempt

month since demonstrations in baghdad at other iraqi cities began against a government protesters view as corrupt dysfunctional and oblivious to the needs of the average iraqi on thursday the president announced prime minister ayad alawi hedi would resign and elections would be held but did not offer a timetable i don't mind if i believe it's meaningless and useless we want to change the whole constitution the iraqi human rights commission says more than 250 people have been killed and 5500 injured in protests from baghdad to karbala many have been injured by tear gas and returned to protest with gauze bandages on their heads arms and legs and the army they throw it on any person they see whether it's a woman a child or a men it makes no difference to them their goal is to people in baghdad bridges leading from tahrir square to the fortified green zone have become deadly standoff
