8:02 pm
this story rosalind jordan is at the conference in washington but 1st let's talk to dominic cain who is in berlin so don what more do we know on these repatriation efforts. wise and we know that the 7 people concerned arrived back at spurgeon's tegel airport just over an hour or so ago and they 'd find themselves landing in to a bit of a storm of controversy because they are clearly in the eyes of the turkish government people who are so dangerous that they needed to be deported back as you were saying in your introduction to their home country and yet landing in germany there is no charge against any of the individuals concerned we understand it is for women to men and one babies include the baby would not have any charge against them but nor do the 6 others who are part of this group and as i say because there is no
8:03 pm
charge against them and there is no charge that can be brought against them as it stands under german law regarding whatever activities they may or may not have taken part in in the middle east they are there for as it were scot free they are able to go about their lives as it were in the in berlin elsewhere in germany we understand some of the people concerned come from the area of hilda's time so they are free to go about their own business but clearly this poses a question for the german government because they know that the turkish government wants to repatriate more german citizens in a similar position and there are many people in this country who say who are saying . do we want such people to come back to this country but of course the authorities find themselves stuck given the fact that these are german citizens they cannot deny them their rights of return so clearly this issue is very important issue and it's one that's dividing the political classes here in berlin dominic cain live 1st
8:04 pm
there in. let's go to rosalynn now in washington where that meeting of the foreign ministers for from the coalition to defeat eisel is taking place so roslyn this whole issue of repatch nation of citizens from western countries from europe and so on one of just some of the major points of contention at that meeting well it is a major up point of contention this idea that the u.s. military is in northeastern syria primarily to protect the oil fields and potentially to profit from those oil fields it's been clarified by the special envoy for the global coalition to defeat isilon basser james jeffrey that is not why u.s. forces are still in northeastern syria he has stressed to reporters this week that they are there to support the ongoing efforts to prevent eisel from regenerating
8:05 pm
and from retaking control of the territory as our viewers know i salute the revenue from selling oil from those refineries in order to finance its operations and that was one of the 1st key efforts that the previous administration undertook to what try to degrade isolate the fact of miss and control over both eastern syria and northwestern iraq it is a matter of focus as we heard earlier on thursday from the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o. today we're watching the space once occupied by this fraudulent caliphate like a hawk that's why we're maintaining our residual president saddam from the southern syria and a capacity to conduct air operations we reposition some of our troops in northeast syria and in the broader region as well to make sure that isis will never get a 2nd wind and to prevent isis from recapturing the oil fields. we've got
8:06 pm
assurances from coalition partners and our partners on the ground on their responsibility for foreign fighters and we'll hold them to account now of course you might expect that for a meeting that's taking only about 4 hours or so behind closed doors that simply focusing on the effort to prevent eisel from regenerating would be enough on the agenda but the delegates who are here are also supposed to be dealing with the larger question of the syrian civil war it will be very interesting when there is a press briefing later here at the state department on thursday to find out just how much progress the 31 representatives from the coalition countries and international organizations were able to make. roslyn jordan live for us there in washington rockets have been fired from gaza into israel hours after a cease fire was agreed this would appear to have violated a truce struck me tween israel and the islamic jihad 34 palestinians have been
8:07 pm
killed in israeli ass tracks the escalation began after the israeli army assassinated a senior leader of the group on chews day rob matheson has more from west to recent . those immediately after the announcement of the ceasefire on thursday morning were relatively quiet but it was in mid morning that we started getting reports that 5 rockets have been fired from gaza into israel we don't yet know who was responsible for firing those rockets we understand from the israeli military that at least 2 of them were brought down by israel's iron dome aerial defense system but it doesn't seem to have had any impact on the the ongoing cease fire itself we understand that israel islamic jihad is saying that it has got to gain some agreements from israel in order to achieve this cease fire one of those agreements is related to israel's use of what's called targeted assassinations it was one of
8:08 pm
those targeted assassinations that resulted in the killing of an islamic jihad leader in gaza and his wife and that in fact was the spark that led to 48 hours of shelling on both sides islamic jihad is also saying that it's got israel to agree to stop shooting protesters at the border the gaza side of the border with israel and that it's got to make some concessions when it comes to the movement of goods and people backwards and forwards between israel and gaza now for its part israel says that that is not the case that its policies have not changed as far as gaza is concerned and as far as the palestinian armed groups are concerned israel's foreign minister israel katz has said simply that calm will be met with calm now this is a phrase that israel has used in the past when it comes to to cease fires because it does not want to acknowledge that it has been part of negotiations for the ceasefire but it does want to acknowledge that
8:09 pm
a cease fire exists now after 48 hours of deaths in gaza and terror on the streets of some israeli towns both sides are now just anxious to see whether or not this cease fire is going to hold. at least 4 people have been killed in iraq's capital jewing antigovernment protests 62 others were injured many of those who had choked on tear gas and all were hit by rubber bullets more than 300 people have been killed since the beginning of october iraq's government has taken some measures to ease the unrest but many protesters want to complete overhaul of the political system i'm a gem jhoom has more from baghdad. we've been told daily that there are going to be substantive measures discussed and taken in parliament to recession's and really they have yet to really transpire the parliament continues to meet there are expectations by
8:10 pm
a multitude of protesters on the streets that they will hear perhaps some news that would indicate to them that the government is actually taking their concerns and their demands under consideration discussing them in parliament and yet that doesn't seem to be the case yesterday as well as today it had been expected that perhaps a part of electoral reform would be taken up in the parliament that perhaps ways of combating corruption would be taken up in the parliament that doesn't seem to have happened it didn't happen yesterday despite the presence of the head of the united nations assistance mission here in iraq today we're told it has not happened as far as we can tell what we've been told by some officials is that there was a draft law that was completed by the president's office with regard to electoral reform that was then given to the head of parliament rather the cabinet and then it's gone to the president of parliament and that it will be discussed at some
