on solid evidence not least because that evidence is coming from the coalition forces themselves they have a detailed look at civil cases that are consumed by the coalition forces and you have the coalition as meting to killing more than six hundred civilians although activists say that that number goes into the thousands now a huge chunk of this u.n. report is devoted to this question of civilian deaths caused by the coalition forces and only watch at the end of the report is they mention about this chemical attack and yet despite this on twitter the united nations has called those a report into the use of chemical weapons in han shy couldn't and not a report into civilian casualties that were caused by the coalition forces in syria where this report there was a number of issues arguably the majority of the report the main emphasis on the report is on the what it suggests are unnecessary or excessive civilian casualties caused by primarily uss strikes around iraq or for example and even in the
province earlier this year talks about a specific strike on a mosque which it found which it says actually happened it caused unnecessary civilian casualties almost. an extra item it talks about the concho clean attack it mentions that blames the syrian air force for that but when we look at media coverage of this in the west it's almost certainly will fit into what we've seen is a consistent pattern over the entire span of the syria war and indeed other conflicts i'm back right here in half an hour's time or r.t. programs ahead.
u.s. relations go at this point it's anyone's guess but one thing is for sure. you know iran must go with. mark zuckerberg at first but they're all arguing about artificial intelligence is he going to destroy the world. maybe we'll mark zuckerberg has already destroyed the world so why does he care let's find out. you seen years ago i traveled across the united states exploring america's deadly
love affair with a gun if a bad guy tried to get to one of my family members he would have better a lot better and i think they are inheriting whatever my my baby's says my book was published in the year two thousand more than hoffa million americans have been killed by firearms in the us and we had a thought to him yes we did yes this is a middle school we go through drills and we put ourselves in real scenarios it was interest same to see who actually got hit by the paint ball gun i just saw i did to return to the subject to track down each gun owner who i'd met and photographed those years your god i don't know that but we are not. thank you for giving us your time thank you speaking to us the first question is
about the situation in libya. do you think there is effective coordination between. the syrian army and the russian. force in particular in the fight against. smaller than that why. then see in the name of our law the compassionate the merciful the coordinated action in syria the syrian army has iran and russia has been a great contribution to the major achievements in driving away the tech faery terrorists from many areas of syria. if it were not for this coordination syria would not have been able to remain standing for six and a half years the syrian forces that are fighting the type ferries are united front and have been able to achieve much success in the ages what is hezbollah's position on president assad does hezbollah want to keep him in power or after the war is
finished or what is the vision for the future goodwill out of this war against syria was started with the purpose of every throwing president assad in order to change syria and to find state was to be replaced with the state acting along the american israeli plan assad is not just a formal leader but the real leader of the country and the commander in chief of the syrian armed forces he represents the syrian people who continue their resistance this is the significance of president assad as we see it from day one of the syrian war hizbollah has been saying that any scheming that aims to remove assad hurt syria's interests we cannot accept this because the syrian people elected their own president. bashar al assad was reelected as president during the ongoing aggression against syria this makes him the legitimate leader and strengthens his position as head of state we are convinced that assad will remain president his future will be decided exclusively by the syrian people and we will not accept any foreign interference on this issue. we support the choice of the
syrian people when the elections are held when syria's completely free and its people are free to make their own choice without any external intervention we will support any choice made by the syrians. no one can predict the future right now and give any forecasts where the positive or negative it's crucial to give the syrian people a chance to make their own political choice lee. now in syria america's goals have changed america they before wanted to get rid of president assad and now especially since trump they say the focus is defeating dark. do you think and this is made hezbollah and iran stronger in syria will america accept this long term you think america for sure that saudi america has suffered a defeat in syria there purty was to remove assad from power and to change the regime but their plans collapsed on many sides. the military presence their support
of opposition forces and regional cooperation with the arab countries that wanted regime change in syria to serve israel's interests but now america has changed its policy this policy now avoids direct confrontation with assad because they simply cannot afford it. they understand eisel which they supported is acting against syria and against the us how can the us support a militant group which they cannot control and which does not do what they want that is why president trump decided to focus and fights nicely but this didn't mean he became an assad supporter. this means he wants to solve the problem of islamic states which is cause the global crisis he wants to deal with this wild monster which they raised and try to use to serve their own interests it turned out that the monster attacked its master. i don't think the u.s. has another choice this doesn't mean they will begin to support hezbollah and iran this just means that merkel's former policy collapsed so it took another way
according to their interests. why does the west in general fear or are scared of a stronger as well a lot of strong iran in the region. the west wants to see the middle east divided and caught up in feuds this would weaken regional countries and allow the west to promote its policies and bring regional players into its sphere of interests especially when you have israel as an ally. in the west believes that israel becomes a strong and influential state in the region it could be used as a stick to beat other states into political economic and cultural submission. when hezbollah started the resistance movement in lebanon it was clear that it was spreading a new ideology that was not previously strong in the region this ideology is focused on resisting the occupiers and liberating our homeland. there was a time when the usa and other western states and israel decided the problem of resistance had been dealt with once and for all that was thanks to israel's attack
on lebanon. it has bill approved it was capable of winning the occupied territories back lebanon was liberated in may two thousand the us has been a strength in the spirit of the arab region as a whole and among the palestinians in particular the resistance began to grow and mature which brought brand new challenges. all of this was happening with iran's support therefore the west decided that hezbollah and iran were trying to ruin their plans and resisting the israel project which the west sees as its foothold. hezbollah has no hidden interests what hezbollah is trying to do is to liberate the territories seized by the occupies and give them independence it wants to see arab and islamic countries cooperate for the sake of their common revival but the west wants these states to be weak and divided. hezbollah came into being with iran support in order to serve as a springboard for future successes. these achievements would have been impossible without hezbollah and iran support. has with them what do you think of israel's
role in syria. israel is the main element in the process of destroying syria it actively supports the armed opposition especially in south syria which is close to the occupied golan heights. the un has provided factual evidence that there were three thousand militants retreated in israeli hospitals also movements have been tracked across the border between syria and york by there is a palestine hundreds of times that's how the militants received supplies i mean another raid. in addition to that the israeli air force delivered a number of strikes on the positions of the syrian army and its allied forces fighting in those areas this is how israel wants to change syria to change its policy but neither israel nor its allies will succeed. this is why recently when the agreements in creating de-escalation zones in southern syria has reached two different russian the united states israel began
acting crazy as some of its demands to have hezbollah and iran's presence removed misery a school left unsatisfied. this made israel realize that it will not be able to continue its interventions since the united states and russia reached an agreement on the aspects that contradict israel's plans right now israel is participating in the destruction of syria and wishing to cash in on the political situation and become part of the crisis settlement process. but i think israel will achieve nothing in syria as i still is suffering defeat and the syrian armed opposition has also suffered defeat even the united states and those who support it have been able to achieve nothing at the same time the syrian army and its allies supported by the russian federation and making great progress i believe that in the end of the day israel will gain nothing in syria and that the
feel. and. that of. israel also. just defending their interests because they're so close to syria and they have the right to defend themselves what is your response to that is. well israel is an invader and invaders have no right to talk about protecting the territories they have invaded. this right belongs only to those territories rightful owners such as palestine lebanon syria jordan and egypt. these countries can claim the right to talk about protecting their turf treats what israel is doing in syria is yet another act of aggression. israel occupied the golan heights it would have been right for it withdraw from the golan heights and all of the areas it was occupying instead of claiming that it israel is protecting struck by territories bulk buying more territories in syria i believe that israel's logic is
short sighted major powers that support israel's occupation project plans and ambitions letting israel behave in this way indicates its terms i expect that the people of the region will not let israel get what it wishes and continue to walk by more lands this has to be stopped and the occupied territories have to be liberated . that. when lawmakers manufacture consent instinctive public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the final. lift certainly the one percent. to ignore middle of the

just feel so sad looks good for years to some a selfish is a means to do so little on the same issue into your last company yes. a musician pushing corpus honesty so. that but. the shift in jordan's position regarding the syrian crisis happened due to the failure of the us israeli plan which jordan was a parts. we now see that jordan is guided by its own interests given its position in the region in the situation in southern syria jordan realized that it was
necessary to open the corridor between syria and jordan the soon as possible in order to gain economic benefits and subsequently political benefits. so after its unsuccessful participation in the anti syrian project jordan was forced to take steps to ensure its interests. in the last week we saw. his beloved defeated darvish in the mountains area and they sent them to do a resort. that's caused a big issue doesn't this just move the problem of guys from one area to another. and people say we should never negotiate with. what's the position of has a lot of this as well my household. in towns across syria the infrastructure of our minister and i still has been destroyed this deprived them of the opportunity to continue fighting and they surrendered. we along with the lebanese government wanted to hold negotiations on the means of surrender because
lebanese soldiers were missing and we did not know where they were alive or dead. we intended to save them and a situation arose where we were able to learn about the fate of the soldiers for more than three years we were not able to do this so therefore we believe that with canes in many respects we have learned about the fates of the lebanese soldiers and the places that barrel have been located the fighting ended so we were able to avoid further loss of life also we managed to retrieve the bodies of some of our fallen comrades. one of our members who is being held prisoner by isis must be released in accordance with this agreement so we achieve the best results at the lowest price and in the end i select the lebanese syrian border. the movement of militants to another area to overcome our was carried out in coordination with the syrian government. these approximately three hundred militants who will join the thousands of militants now become oh will not fundamentally affect the alignment of
forces the militants already exhausted and we know that the coming battle against them in that area will be very fierce thus we did not create a new problem in that area. on the contrary we rid the lebanese syrian border of a very big problem of to move the militants to another place which will be liberated in a month or two. then this will lead to more children and that is what the release a statement that was because obviously the americans are attacking this convoy and they released a statement which said there are civilians families and women and old people with the direction this convoy some of the critics and enemies of hezbollah have said in the last few days that why is hezbollah so concerned with civilians from. but they were concerned with civilians in aleppo hezbollah. hezbollah always stands on the side of civilians we have never done anything to harm the civilian population we
avoided taking part in some battles in aleppo or homes in other areas as there were too many civilians there we gave them the opportunity to leave these territories but i saw another attack three groups used people as human shields to hide behind we've always tried to separate the militants from their families and i want to remind you that hezbollah managed to force the militants from homes where there was also a large number of civilians. as for a leper we reached an agreement on the withdrawal of civilians in several of the places hezbollah helped a large number of people get to safety we condemn the u.s. for their aggressive actions towards the civilian population as america wants to undermine the agreement and return these peaceful citizens to their relatives in the i will come out region. the question arises why does the u.s. intervene in this way why do they want to use the civilian population as a human shield. in that case what is the difference between the us and i still
which also uses the civilian population as human shield there is no excuse for this . we strongly condemn all such actions that threaten the civilian population even if these peaceful citizens are members of attack very families as they have nothing to do with the fighting. and the. what is your view on the cooperation between america and the lebanese military. national and all manner we do not object to the lebanese army getting supplies and weapons from any source except israel we have never had negative attitude to the lebanese army getting american weapons and ammunition we are calling for the lebanese army to purchase weapons from russia iran and other countries so we can become stronger. presence there are no restrictions on the weapons origin we support any reinforcement of the lebanese army is military capacity even if it
comes from the united states that will cause a lot less. so in that case is there any coordination because we know that the hezbollah have the equation the people there is a stance and the army is there any contact or coordination between hezbollah and the americans considering that they're both fighting the irish but at the same time america says hezbollah the terrorist group. now. we believe the united states the world's major superpower is aiding and abetting terrorists this is the reason we do not coordinator actions with the united states and the united states does not coordinate this actions with us. it is not acceptable for us and neither is acceptable for america america supports israel and once the destruction of syria and the entire region our position is the opposite. we support the
resistance movement the fight to liberate syria from its enemies for the sake of preserving the resources and capacities of our region so that it can resist the american strategy that we represent different parts so we cannot corporate. and. the west currently as we said this has a negative view of hezbollah but do you think the west's view of hezbollah is changing since hezbollah has been fighting diversion fighting most raw and all these other terrorist groups do you think now there's a more positive view of hezbollah. i believe that the west will gradually change its views even when the west says that in political terms our party is inclined to terrorism they still do make a distinction between the political wing of the party and its military wing this means that the west is stuck now between its political choice which dictates that it must support israel and the real situation where destroying countries that
widely support hezbollah is not an option they don't know who to choose. in light of the victories achieved in syria lebanon and iraq the political leadership of the western countries will gradually change. right now they are intimidated by america and are trying to follow its policies if they were independent the situation would have been different. president putin the russian president appears once again repeated his call for a multinational coalition against international terrorism do you think such a coalition can be created a real international coalition and what are the challenges and obstacles which block this and that. is what the higher love when president putin calls for an international coalition to be created he does so based on his serious and
responsible approach to fighting terrorism he has done a lot for this cause and thanks to him the russian army delivered some serious blows against the terrorists in syria. he represents the forces the chosen the right and responsible approach to eliminating terrorists if he talks about an international coalition with the united states and other countries these are at best formal not serious statements because it is the united states that has been supporting terrorism and helping it evolve and spread in the region. however the us has also been suffering from terrorism which means it's possible they might to a certain degree respond to this call one way or another this proposal made by president putin has to be seen in a positive light. his further call for creating coalition will put some countries in an uncomfortable position but i do not think that the countries will reach an understanding on this matter because they have different definitions of terrorism.
that if. so now unfortunately there is. now there is a disagreement between the iraqi side and the cereal of hezbollah side about. are you in contact with the iraqi government the iraqi authorities and how what's your message to them you know how do you want to stop this situation from getting worse. we have not come to a common position with the iraqi government and what to do with the i will come out situation we believe the what happened there was based on the syrian government's decision to let the militants move from one area to another. this is a serious internal affair and does not require the agreement of any other party we made a statement on behalf of hezbollah where we pointed out the relevant facts including the fact that these events do not concern the state of iraq. that iraq is a heroic nation ready for self sacrifice and therefore much and suffered greatly
from attack very terrorists. they've achieved much in fighting islamic states and pushing it out of many cities including most whom we maintain contact with people throughout the country on a regular basis i don't think there are any problems between us and the iraqi people and we don't have any problems with the iraqi government. the iraqis are a peaceful people they're fighting for their rights. we've seen many leaders rocky political religious and popular movement saying that hezbollah's actions towards tax freeze in lebanon were correct. as for the iraqi government statements i don't think we should make problem out of this i would like to interpret it as a minor disagreement which can be easily solved she left dude. but it will i suppose the last question is what does the future hold for hezbollah. as. we cannot say for sure about the future of hezbollah who we expect to see major
victories and see our dreams come true we plan to liberate even more territories we are only a small passive resistance movement which is now growing stronger. we hope this syria will again become unite says we'll choose the best way forward and we hope that the whole of iraq will eventually be free we will continue to fight for our territories and we also hope that the palestinians will be able to get back their land hezbollah has a bright future but it has been thank you very much. i know you're very busy and we spoke very much but we would love to speak for ten dollars thank you.
god. was. how bad can it get how low can russia u.s. relations go at this point it's anyone's guess but one thing is for sure donald trump's call for better relations is now dead in the water. moscow with. mark zuckerberg at facebook no you arguing about artificial intelligence is going to destroy the world. maybe you will mark zuckerberg has
