a sialic at lock horns with batter of greenland five never saw it worst case your fingers have all the highlights. i'm out on a thank you for joining us well the turkish army have said that seven of its soldiers have been killed in northwest syria this weekend it marks the deadliest day for their forces since turkey began its operation against kurdish fighters last month civilians house paid a price for the fighting with shelling forcing thousands to leave their homes and turkey's military post has been focused on the kurdish enclave of a friend close to its border a friend is controlled by the p.g.a. us fact kurdish militia that turkey regards as a terrorist organization. well for more now
i'm joined by our correspondent dorian jones in istanbul dorian why does actually is turkey trying to achieve with this mission. but according to turkey this is part of a major operation with much of the turkey southern border and if they clear out the syrian kurdish militia from its border if this if this militia is directly linked to an insurgency inside. this claim tens of thousands of lives because of pressure the presence of this militia on its borders upon except of all threats and is now trying to create a thirty kilometers deep security called first in half for him and then beyond that to of all parts of syria and back potentially could put turkey on a collision course with the united states because the united states is backing this kurdish militia in its war against the islamic state the next target approach operations off to africa will be the syrian town of beach where u.s.
forces are present and the u.s. have said they will not remove those forces so potentially going forward the operation does accent among bitch them to nato allies have the prospect of facing off. their jury and how is that news going down in turkey what is the mood like there at the moment. well even though we are getting reports of a mounting death toll of soldiers and also along with growing reports of humanitarian concerns of flights of tens of thousands of civilians trapped in the afrin enclave support within the country behind this operation and that's because they do buy into what the turkish president. claim is that this is a battle for the future of the country they say that we need to the fate this kurdish insurgency both inside turkey and outside of turkey but for the future of the country as igs is at stake but there will be concerns in turkey as it. has a number of turkish soldiers all increasingly killed along with the concerns over
the civilian plight but there could be a growing opposition to this operation and that is seen as one of the reasons why there is ongoing crackdown on any forces of dissent seven hundred arrests of people putting postings on social media opposing this operation that crackdown is expected to continue. and jury we've also been hearing reports of turkish guards at the border with syria indiscriminately shooting asked people trying to flee across the border into turkey has this can you tell us any more about this story. but it's very difficult to verify these reports are being very quick to say that this is propaganda this is out of the question they insist that their super bowl forces do behave in a humane way following international law but it has to be said the international human rights groups last year did publish a report making similar allegations against the turkish border security forces and undoubtedly this will add to mounting pressure internationally on turkey
particularly over the huge plight of the civilians the hundreds of thousands of civilians trapped in africa and there will be concerns of these people will be allowed safe passage out of out of syria into turkey and that pressure is likely to continue to mount as concerns over the fate of the people in africa gross. thank you very much. well al qaeda linked militants have claimed responsibility for killing a russian pilot after shooting down his fighter jets over syria's north western province russia's defense ministry has confirmed the incident has said it's already launched retaliation strikes on the rebels. a pillar of smoke marks the place where the russian war plane came down its pilot was able to parachute to the ground but not to safety. russia's defense ministry says he died in a fight with militants it's not clear whether the rebels tried to capture him.
