syria we get an exclusive look across the euphrates river. the west bank liberated from the terrorist. threat. is a possibility the state department defends his approach to the crisis. will be devastating. devastating for north korea the president certainly. is a very effective communicator. security goes on trial with questions of police didn't prevent some of his followers from carrying out attacks .
welcome to the program the developments in syria to tell you about syrian government forces have driven terrorists from the west bank of the euphrates river . after a series of losses islamic state seems to be on the brink of defeat in the country with the syrian army forces advancing on the terrorists on two fronts these are some exclusive pictures from the area that we've got for you several days ago the syrian army managed to get across the river allowing for a new advance on the russian military is now established a bridge that. reports from the west bank. once the most exclusive resorts. now
a modern day fortress out of necessity. for three years the garrison here has thwarted isis attempts to cross the river at times it was a close run thing and you don't have saudi going on in from the onset coming up to the roof was very dangerous because of the snipers it was really bad but when the army broke the siege they fell back a month ago it would have been suicide to film up here not anymore. these five star hotel seem better days but thanks to its grandiose design and height acted as something of a fortress here indeed as sort and just to show you how close we are if you have a look through this hole at that hospital well everything behind that is isis's part of the city of that is or across the river they also hold sway this is all
their territory that's the euphrates river and across it is isis it's from there that they shelled the city at will and from there that they launched the occasional raid across the river taking the other bank is key to liberating the city entirely isis still sends fighters and alms back and forth across the river at night it may take weeks but it is inevitable isis in syria is on its last legs its collapse has been as spectacular as its rise since the beginning of the year the so-called caliph it has lost thousands of square kilometers losing precious oilfields and strategic towns to the advancing syrian army and the u.s. backed rebels that is not to say it's over or that it will be easy isis has nothing left in. according to the syrian military the families of isis fighters and
diehard supporters have allegedly retreated to the town of my dean they have nowhere else to go in the shrinking caliphate the past is quite a good indication for what they might do in the future everywhere they were whatever these areas were liberate the people who thought for the presence of isis have told us horror stories about how they use people as human shields so it's not surprising at all if they would and there was no way for anyone to predict to what extent they would do that but. would they be hampered by any norms of any reason or any more i live the past doesn't indicate that this is the final act the dream of an islamic state has been shattered but even in its death throes
will inevitably claim more lives guys do have see from their disorder syria. and as i so loses ground not only in syria but also in iraq and the fate of the families of foreign militants is in question we ask what should happen to the wives of ice all terrorists that's later in the program. to syria five commanders behind the attack on a russian military police unit last week have been killed in a targeted missile strike spring confirmed by russia's defense ministry in a separate mission russian's to t.j. bombers carried out strikes on i saw and positions on the syrian provinces of deir ez-zor the which we just heard about and also in libya the defense ministry said all targets were located outside residential areas. i i i. i i
i i. i. i i i i. i . the war of words continues to escalate between the united states and north korea donald trump's now said the u.s. is fully prepared to explore military options against pyongyang if washington feels it's needed at the same time a state department spokesperson described the u.s. president as an effective communicator while trying to deal with north korea we are totally prepared for the second option not a preferred option but if we take that option it will be devastating i can tell you that devastating for north korea that's called the military option if we have to
take it we will the president certainly. is a very effective communicator and the president speaks very clearly in terms of his position coming out of the white house well apparently donald trump is an effective communicator he doesn't want to attack north korea while at the same time he does he has been threatening north korea with military options for quite a while and we've heard kim jong on and the leaders of north korea responding there was the recent statement saying little rocket man won't stay much longer we've seen angry responses from north korea heather nauert was asked at the state department about whether she thought it was helpful for down trump to speak this way on social media feel that the tweets of the name calling. and statements made over twitter on north korea you feel like that is effective communication i think the pick the president is an effective communicator i think people know exactly where he stands
we have had a good deal of success in pushing forward with our diplomacy campaign that hasn't changed that certainly hasn't changed in the president has helped rally the world together rally the world together in the peaceful pressure campaign against kim jong un's regime so apparently she considers threatening a country that has nuclear capabilities with destruction to be a great diplomatic success and this doesn't sit well with pianka they fired back with their own responses we've been having this warmongering rhetoric back and forth between the leaders of north korea and the leaders of the united states for months now the escalation of terms has increased the question is when will this rhetoric transform into something more serious.
here of strategic patience. with the north korean regime has failed states is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies our respected leader kim didn't own but said the u.s. would be unhappy to witness north korea strategic power on its independence day and called for frequently spending big and small new packages. this not make it worth the risk to the united states. they will be met with fire. like the world has never seen north korea has finished preparation for a strike and will launch the u.s. does not act sensibly and the threat to the united states or territories will be met with a massive military response from the u.s. and the blacks because of national community. this will establish peace on the korean peninsula the young gang will retaliate against attempts to impose sanctions and pressure from washington with more powerful counter measures the forthcoming
measures to be taken by the d.p. arche will cost the us the greatest pain and suffering it has ever gone through in its entire history if it is forced to defend itself or its allies we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea but if you're going to be since the united states declared war on our country we will have every right to take countermeasures including the right to shoot down u.s. strategic bombers even when they are not inside our country's airspace. asia politics analyst joseph chang told us he believes president trumps trying to sound firm on north korea same tougher at home. the message is certainly very confusing in his united nations general assembly speech president from frac to totally destroy north korea the statement was aimed to please his right wing nationalists concert tour ends at the same time his government officials have
been stating that the united space doesn't see a region. korea north korea is expected to continue to engage in new create has only. rather freak one miss out since no force no military action has been taken regarding previous as it is quite and imaginable wolf of food. for further. the united states then choose to take military action against north korea. we've got some breaking news from afghanistan to tell you about several rockets have landed in kabul international airport and also the surrounding area other thing is this comes just hours after the u.s. secretary of defense james mattis arrived at the airport in the afghan capital he's there for talks along with the nato chief stoltenberg these rockets have landed but
there are no reports of any casualties or indeed of damage at this stage it's also not known who was behind the attack as of course there are several groups operating in afghanistan the pentagon chief of course is the first member of the trumpet ministration to visit the country since mr trump announced that new strategy on the war in afghanistan with thousands more troops also pledged to fight against the taliban when we get more details of what's happened to kabul international airport we will let you know on the international. next an islamic preacher known as i still zc ambassador has gone on trial in germany he's accused of having inspired several terror attacks in the country including the christmas market attack last year peter. perhaps the details. iting his face in court he's also known for turning his back to the camera during his recordings called the faceless preacher he goes by several names more commonly
known as abu allah will last described as ice souls ambassador in germany with direct contact to the group's leadership according to prosecutors he's accused of being the main talent scouts of islamic state in germany recruiting people to go to syria to fight this is not the goals of this network was the regular people in germany and to send them to syria to fight alongside the fires. we believe is a member of the arsenal terrorist group isn't just accused of recruiting fighters for foreign jihad he also spoke regularly at the mosque that was attended by. who killed twelve people and wounded almost sixty after he rammed a truck into a christmas market here in berlin.
apart from the pearl in attack here it's thought that at least one of three teenagers who set off a bomb at an indian wedding were influenced by. willow was arrested in november twenty sixth seen along with four associates he was charged with creating a pan regional salafist jihadist network an iraqi national well all right in germany back in two thousand and one police had been aware of him for two years before his arrest but solved there was insufficient evidence to detain him just over a month after they finally did right before the christmas holidays germany was hit by the deadliest terror attack. in years given security services say they've identified some ten and a half thousand radical islamists in the country that's up from less than four thousand back in twenty eleven. and his four co-defendants deny all of the charges against them and the trial is expected to continue well into twenty eight teen but
should they be found guilty major questions will have to be asked of the security services over how someone who preached so openly the words of radical jihad could be allowed to do so within germany and go on punished for so long peter all of. the only preacher accused of inspiring terror attacks police in spain found links to one while investigating a terror cell linked to last month's terror attacks in barcelona and campbell's the preacher in question died the day before those attacks when a bomb factory inside a house exploded hey preachers have also come to the attention of the authorities in the u.k. as well and jim choudhry is believed to have inspired the attacker who killed soldier lee rigby in twenty thirteen preacher was jailed for over five years for openly supporting islamic state and encouraging others to do so as well
counterterrorism specialist response a beard told us he believes the phenomenon has a deep political background. what government policy throughout the european and western world goods is essentially neglect and reject the idea that it's politics and political factors that are essentially driving political violence the whole idea of hate preachers what it basically say's is that the individuals who walk conducting the violence themselves have no political agency they are simply being manipulated and grooved and therefore we can stop this grooming from happening by dealing with the hate preachers when the reality of the matter is that these are political issues that are operating overwhelmingly on a structural level so whilst of course we can have a discussion and debate around individual ideologues the reality is that stability and some resemblance of peace will only happen when the structural change
. images of top flight american footballers kneeling during the national anthem before games has fired up a nationwide are our patriotism but until recently there's been more behind the tradition of opening matches with the star-spangled banner than you might have realised my girlfriend says santiago. american football and donald trump just don't mix chum has lashed out at fellow players for bending the need during the national anthem and the protests just keep on coming let's recap what you love to see one of these n.f.l. owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a up the field right now out these guys used in sports platform to try to divide. this president needs a good history lesson of i'll be honest with you but this is the news you got to not only our players but are we it's basically ignorance he doesn't understand it i'm not sure if our president understands those rights if the people who benefited
most from america despise it and increasingly they do what does that leave the rest of us and there is also a hash tag war on the social media the date they need team defense players rights in their protest against police brutality and they're up against the respect the flag team posting videos like this of players jerseys and n.f.l. memorabilia being burnt now the last time the bend the knee argument got this much attention was of course over the game of thrones i'm not here to my fans be me and join me over fees and down since there's a lot of talk about respect and pride when it comes to your country here is a patriot senator mccain i was appalled to learn last month that many of the ceremonies honoring members of our armed services at n.f.l. games are not actually being conducted out of a sense of patriotism but for profit in the form of millions of dollars in
taxpayers' money going from the department of defense to wealthy enough l. franchises back in two thousand and fifteen mr mccain came out with a detailed report on how in the fall national anthem celebrations were actually being paid for by the partner of defense here's where the taxpayers' dollars were going. to on field color guard performances of the national anthem and full field flag ceremonies now this report lists sports teams who got the cash for patriotic ceremonies however the funds have dried up since twenty sixteen asked senators put a stop to what they called aid patriotism returning to trump's own to rot against the n.f.l. teams arthur blank owner of the atlanta falcons says trump creates division and undermines the ideals of american democracy but the falcons got a total of eight hundred seventy nine thousand dollars in just four years now robert kraft of the new england patriots said that he was deeply disappointed by trump's comments but
a couple of years before that his team got seven hundred thousand dollars of funds for national anthem ceremonies now trumps remarks were divisive and this respectful the criticism coming from terry and kim of the owners of the buffalo bills they took six hundred fifty thousand dollars from the d.o.d. back when pete patriotism was allowed let's not get it twisted for his sake in these billionaire owners like jerry jones of the day. in kraft in the pages they could care less about civil rights they could care less about the state of black america in this struggle against police terror but they knew that if they sided with the troll who was extremely unpopular in all spheres of american society the owners risked a walkout some type of players strike there was such incredible unity among the players that the owners had no choice but the logs are in with the players they
were protecting their own interests and their own bottom line. well despite british newspapers best efforts to put off that football fans from coming to moscow thousands are here for the championship matches and they've been telling us what kind of welcome they really received it's a long story still ahead. here's what people have been saying about rejected and. really. better than. the c. . heard of. the world bank. sent us an e-mail. to. put themselves on the
line they did accept the reject. so when you want to express. to the press this is what before. people. interested in the water. welcome back ground in iraq and syria the face of the children of foreign militants is in question a few days ago there were new arrivals at an orphanage in baghdad as in previous cases most of the children appear scarred by their experiences they were taken care of by a teenage sister who was married to another all there's no law given the children
should be allowed to return to their families deciding the fate of the wives of isis. fighters is a deeply divisive issue. we have no idea what cons a have committed or may have committed so i don't think they should be allowed back in the lake be rehabilitated they usually do when they chose to go out there actually i think we've got to sort out the war criminals who have been responsible for their crimes you talk of the talking about the women i think it's right that we screen them we find out what they've been involved in of why they made the decision to go out and actually that could be used as a good resource in terms of gathering intelligence do you honestly think that somebody is committed any kind of atrocity is going to hold their hands up and you have absolutely no way of knowing whether they did or whether they didn't they're not going to admit to it so i'm sorry what do you take that risk with the women and children in this country when we could actually preparing in
a mean and they could be telling as yes we we've had a change of heart we realize we shouldn't have done a we didn't commit any crime they come in the next thing you know you've got a plot for another terror attack in this country while the vast majority of terrorist plots and the terrorist activity that we've seen over these dreadfully seen over these past few months here in london or manchester are actually whole growing problems they're not people who come from outside a sidecar there's a range is that actually in with your replies by people radicalized by isis and their ideology of violence or through the internet paralleling. preachers. we have to do you've got to close these people we have to make sure that they you can't deal over and over them do you do a little light somebody who may have your head in there is a day that will come on this slight difference i'm not talking about people beheading people if they've been involved in dog how we're going to retry had their walk criminals are they how do you know they should be held to account for their walk right now about children how would you know your people who are not what i how
do you know they are i gave homemade them. so you know what i see how do you know who they are and that's exactly the point how do you know that they are i can i say i need a community we will not know three thousand five hundred jihadi is on a watch list in this country is three thousand five hundred extra mickey extremists in this country right now the police have said they don't know where they are man made the police have said that they do not know where their city can by his own admission has said he doesn't know how many or india where any of them are what you are talking about is somebody if i came to you and i had been and committed some atrocity but i swore to you i hadn't. done it how would you prove that i had or i hadn't you come up with one way or the other and i'm sorry. a lawyer can have the law of the jungle we have. bring him back and those laws have to take their process i weeded out the point you have to make very clear yes if we don't you know we
don't find any blood guilty without you process and we have to go through that process so there are there are terrorism laws there are processes in which the intelligence agencies of police should be able to follow. more than two thousand british football fans have descended on the russian capital european champions league matches the report supporters got a warm welcome on tuesday for the night with spartak moscow ahead of the game that ended in a one all draw the visitors were given a warm blanket and souvenir t. shirts as part of a campaign called gentle fun russian warm welcome which kicked off in the city of rostov last march today it's the turn of manchester united but before any of the british football fans flew to russia the media at home was giving them plenty of warnings on what they might expect many showed videos of hooligans and repeated that it's dangerous and unsafe to travel to russia so we've been out to ask the fans themselves of what experiences they've. the russian people are very nice very good warm. people
