9:03 pm
are now moving north to secure major oil fields but moving north could lead to clashes between the army and his main rival the syrian democratic forces of the. coalition of kurdish factions and backed by the united states of america. following a series of targeted operations units from our armed forces in cooperation with the allied forces fulfill their mission restoring order and stability to the entire city of the resort after destroying the hideouts of the remnants of the terrorist organization of. these are i still celebrating their control of dale saw and iraq in two thousand and fourteen the armed group launched a spectacular attack sweeping through eastern syria. and city to towns on the border with turkey but isis gains was shortlived its
9:04 pm
fighters from northern syria following a major campaign by a coalition led by the united states of america and a turkish cross border operation in two thousand and sixteen. and two weeks ago. i said out of itself proclaimed capital city with finally under its control the syrian army only have one more pocket of i still territory to delaware the border city of command. is already under attack by iraqi forces if i see a loser book a man. presence in syria would come to an end the syrian army which has suffered major setbacks over the last six years says it's determined to take all the territory it lost including. of the house a couple problems which are still under the control of an opposition groups.
9:05 pm
well stephanie decker is in the hoke province. in iraq and the continuing find. is hugely significant why because it is the last border point that i still control the border with syria the group made a huge point in their propaganda videos of showing them bold osing down these borders and establishing their so-called state while their territorial gains certainly seem to be at their very and it's also the last sort of areas that they control in this country in iraq there's a small area called to the east of all crime fighting is still ongoing but certainly judging by the that the swiftness of this campaign it does seem to be over soon it will of course be huge victory for the iraqi federal forces once they can announce that is no longer in iraq in this terms of holding territory but it doesn't mean that the group will no longer pose a threat. well joining me now is hide hide
9:06 pm
a syria research and associate fellow at chatham house think tank thanks very much for coming into al-jazeera all this talk about these various areas both iraq and syria now being pushed back i still being pushed out of the way but we're not saying that disappeared away not exactly because it happened before it happened after two thousand and seven two thousand and eight when the americans start the whole program in iraq and they were able to defeat what was called a time that islamic state in europe but it came back because the reasons and the reasons that the cause of that allowed the group to flourish in the first place were not dealt with and what we're seeing here is similar situation they're pushing the group out of the urban areas but the group will disappear and will continue to pose a threat not only inside syria but as far as what we understand now there are vast swathes of the country the various groups now pushing towards is almost
9:07 pm
a rush to take back control of those areas with just one line. agency senior iranian official valeyard he says syrian government forces and their allies will advance to see what they call liberate syria as iraq a city in the near future of course kurdish forces went into iraq or is this basically laying down a line that says there's going to be now yet another battle where it's not clear but people basically say. statements in the media for different reasons one is to send a message but to basically implement those messages on the ground is a different story because part of the. unspoken agreement was broken agreement we are not clear on what happened behind the plan to close doors here but there is some kind of agreement between the russians and the americans on what's happening in the eastern part of syria before the regime or the iranians or even the russians will decide to go. takeover rocca they have to deal with the syrian democratic
9:08 pm
forces in the countryside of their reserves so this will be i think the first indication in which we will be able to know whether there will be a future or or new clash between the regime and the syrian democratic forces how important is it to watch very carefully what happens to those populations who have lived under i so forces and to see how the syrian government forces indeed treats them there is a lot of fear i know of these people as to how they don't exactly because even before isis capture there is are people there were opposing the regime so when the rejean goes back to those areas first of all is angry with those people because they started demonstrating on the streets and kick the military forces and then they stayed under isis so there is will most likely carry out revenge and discriminatory actions against those people people many left their areas but the
9:09 pm
problem is that there is no place for them to go to most of the places that are controlled by the syrian democratic forces are basically close and they're not allowing the people to cross to those areas and that's the only way out so they have no safe place that they can go to and they can be safe and of the the isis forces who are now looking for another site do you get the sense that this is almost an export now that could be heading towards areas in asia in africa where the battle is still going i think they are now exploring all their options but that doesn't mean that they will not continue fighting in syria and iraq they have people there and they have resources and they will for sure change the formant and which they are carrying out their attacks they would be most likely hit and run operations more suicide and stuff like that but they will continue to operate in syria and iraq while they are exploring other opportunities as well thanks very
9:10 pm
much for coming to see is announcing. meanwhile the united states has carried out two ass strikes targeting eisel finds in somalia it's thought to be the first time it's targeted the group that the strikes were in the north east of the country where i so has been gathering recruits it's not clear how many of its members were killed. italian authorities say they've seized twenty four million tablets of an opioid painkiller that i saw was planning to sell to finance attacks around the world the shipment of the drug tramadol was on route from india to libya when it was seized by customs officials in the southern calabria region prosecutors in italy have said the hole is worth fifty eight million dollars they also suspect i saw has been giving the powerful painkiller to its fighters to supposedly enhance their fighting abilities a judge has ruled that u.s.

soldier bowe bergdahl will not serve prison time for endangering his comrades i do it in his afghanistan post the army sergeant was held by the taliban for five years after walking away from his post prosecutors had sought a fourteen year sentence the court has instead ordered dishonorable discharge in his desertion case daal will also lose his rank and forfeit pay. this is been a terrible ordeal. you against the background the ordeal that you're all familiar with the time during judge nancy's deliberations has been particularly. anxiety inducing for obvious reasons he's certainly glad this is over. russell and jordan is live from washington d.c. he didn't get a jail term but the. punishments relate to this sentence. that's
9:12 pm
right bowe bergdahl has been demoted to private which is the entry level for any military around the world he is going to receive a dis honorable discharge which means he won't get any pay or any other benefits including health care or the ability to buy a home with the government's help and he's going to have to pay a ten thousand dollars fine although that will be spread out over nearly a year the fact is the his name is going to basically be toxic and military experts have suggested that he's going to have a very difficult time trying to reintegrate into civilian life because he has admitted that he walked away from his post in afghanistan in two thousand and nine in order to make a point about what he considered poor command of control within his unit something which has some of his fellow soldiers and put their lives at risk. president
9:13 pm
was sadly outspoken about what he thought should happen to this soldier and he's been fairly outspoken since the sentencing was announced. that's right sue while he was running for president in two thousand and sixteen he called bowe bergdahl a traitor and said you know that he basically should be shot for a desert in his post to double down on that in recent weeks as the sentencing phase was about to start the president basically reiterated that he felt that bergdahl should be facing prison at the very least something which his lawyer said was trying to work tamper with the judicial process the judge in the case actually took note of what the president said and said he would consider it a reason to not put a hard punishment against bergdahl and so this is why we have impart the man not going to prison at all even though the military wanted him to spend about
9:14 pm
fourteen years in prison for his crimes. in jordan live for us in washington d.c. coming up at this news hour the funeral is held for the multis investigative journalist killed by a car bomb. an american woman is chance's involved way for tweets calling president mugabe a goblin and the sick man. and the new world series champions. for the streets of houston joe will have more in sports. the formulated of catalonia says he will fight extradition if an international arrest warrant is issued against him spanish central judges want colace preached them all to come back to spain from belgium to face challenges related to his declaration of independence for catalonia which inferior politicians in madrid

david reports. that oppose cattle and president. has pledged to cooperate with the belgian courts as soon as his arrest warrant from the national court in madrid is. this is the office of brussels that will receive the documents once they've been checked and will have to attend a court hearing at the palace of justice facing. the same applies to his four former cabinet ministers of belgium. proceedings under the european arrest warrant can take up to sixty days and in special circumstances an extra thirty days can be added. legal experts say the new streamlined measures amid to make extradition between countries inside the european union much more simple but this case might bring unforeseen challenges to the legislation i think that this case so it's very sensitive for an exceptional case will be a test for the you were. and for the mutual trust between the member states of the
9:16 pm
you when more particularly between benjamin and at the european commission's friday press briefing every question was about catalonia and they all received the same response this is a matter entirely for the judicial authorities who. thankfully the arrest warrants can only be challenged on two grounds on the basis of human rights abuses or what the lawyers call double criminality and that's where it gets complicated. the charge of sedition has to be defined in broadly the same way in spain and belgium for the warrant to work but belgium's definition of sedition dates back more than two centuries and spain's was last amended in one thousand nine hundred five. a lawyer working for is an expert in extradition and amnesty cases having defended members of the basque separatist organization after this story is far from over
9:17 pm
david chaytor al jazeera brussels. thousands are currently demonstrating outside regional government buildings around catalonia about the jailing of catalan leaders and joins us live from the protest. and the sorts of things that the press has to say. but there's also short answer because people in exactly one week ago were in this same were celebrating the declaration this fashion. all of a free vote in favor over now those full to rule because the votes hold all those politicians even though. you could imagine the food we're going through. let's take you immediately closer to take a look at the numbers here has moved the standing room only this week the food
9:18 pm
building there with the final. freedom for political prisoners building is the city hold on that is the only place where any form of political activity is going on the elected council of this city let's go across the crowds moving over to the other building that's in relative don't miss right now that is the palace of the general the town that is the seat of government that is the case there is no presence. on the central government. will ever will stop that. and so you have a picture here which is what you saw really angry let's assess the situation with sonia until you suppose it was ok well you know you want to make this a good message and. i think it's pretty clear that. after. the
9:19 pm
sentence the sending tea rented to the men who were in spain people just reacted in a very logical but it seems very logical reaction which is asking for freedom and asking for the state a flaw in the rule of law to be respected many experts from you know law experts are just saying that preventive according to the charge. that general chinese asking for it it's absolutely this before she. could give up any a list would go. google was a good way to make if you will remove those who will post your move. move soon. will still work and so. yes at the beginning people were a bit concerned because the frost voices said that he was going to ask for asylum
9:20 pm
and then many people saw it as if he was living in a bar position the rest of us but then he made a public statement saying we're not going to pull for asylum we're just here so that we can visit ilana's the very very broad jato them spanish judiciary the food sauce with no one and no grantees olfa fair judge them situation now people. opinion on that i think it's shifting because also just the day of the government were put into jail know many people this morning and local news were just saying maybe it was actually a good move that both puts them on and hope of the government when to brussels because otherwise they would also be in jail now with it right now so people thing are divided between those who see it as a maybe not crazy shit like ration but not very fair and hop of the
9:21 pm
society that are saying oh it's the only way for them to not being jailed and to keep claiming to the international media dontcha we have a case here we need attention and things are happening. but we're watching you you'll hold still we're hearing the so called us pistol is appearing will go into the within the next oh possibly going to be such a new historic them accordingly mariama will holding the scottish foreign minister to actually go into the fold with the. also i understand that his lawyer is insisting that he will challenge any attempt to extradite him from belgium back to madrid so right now the situation here is ongoing expression of anger self expression of disappointment and a slightly confusing picture as to where this is all leading many times and
9:22 pm
anderson is that bringing us the very latest from barcelona. well to multan now where thousands of people have attended a funeral for the journalist. who was killed by a car bomb last month the island of the day of mourning and. lost in brussels the e.u. is calling a multitude find those responsible for john the helpful. destiny kyra one it got least see it was no ordinary journalist. at her funeral on friday friends and family remembered a to listen vesta gator who'd faced threats to her life and in the courts. in thousands of posts on her popular blog uncovered scandal and corruption in what her son described as multi mafia state she helped trigger a snap election earlier this year after alleging links between prime minister joseph must scott and offshore business dealings contained in the panama papers.
9:23 pm
many in positions of power politicians judges and the police had reason to want her silenced on the sixteenth of october someone succeeded with a bomb in the car apart you're a poll and the f.b.i. have joined the investigation the government has offered over a million dollars for information but no arrests have yet been made on facebook her son matthew wrote my mother was assassinated because she stood between the rule of law and those who sought to violate it we are a people at war against the state and organized crime which have become indistinguishable. from the family made clear that maltese leaders were not welcome at the funeral and in a statement a european commission vice president france to months said the eyes of europe are on the multis all surratt is. the last words on a final blog post all for
9:24 pm
a reason they recruit everywhere you look now daphne wrote on the day she died the situation is desperate joe now al-jazeera. al-jazeera is demanding they release of its journalist has signed who's been in an egyptian prison for three hundred nineteen days he's accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which. strongly deny who has repeatedly complained of mistreatment in jail he was arrested in december visiting his family. american woman accused of insulting zimbabwe's president mugabe on twitter has been charged with subversion o'donovan who works for my gamble t.v. was detained in a dorm made on her home in harare that's the first arrest since the ministry of cyber security was created last month he faces up to twenty years in prison to cordon mcgarvey a selfish and sick man in a tweet and sharing
9:25 pm
a post which referred to a goblin whose wife and stepsons had imported a rolls royce o'donovan denies the charges as basis and malicious. but the cult party is a human rights lawyer in harare says o'donovan is being targeted because of her work with my campaign t.v. which produces political satire it is actually to some degree outside of the typical murders operandi of this bombing. typically reserved for these sorts of charges that this level of repression for its own citizens so it is it is an interesting dynamic that comes with martha. the fact that she is a citizen of another country which brings in as you say the whole a whole new diplomatic angle which will be interesting to see outlets art she's charged with subverting a constitutional government which carries a very hefty sentence of twenty years in prison and this is
9:26 pm
a charge sort of almost akin to treason that relates directly to her role with mccumber t.v. and subsidiary of macumba called open pylea which is which talks all about the work of parliament so this is really what we've been what we expected all along that it wasn't really about the retreat but but that it was really an expedition to try and get information about her work with. and to try and go through the organization. liberia's president selection run. supreme court investigates allegations of election the vote was jus to take place next was expected to mark liberia's first democratic transition of power but this week the supreme court halted preparations it says it will rule on monday on the petition filed against the national election commission by the liberty party candidate. let's get more on this from who is in
9:27 pm
the capital monrovia and what was the liberty party candidate complaining why did it protection the supreme court. well basically. is asking for a complete rerun of the election not of course the runoff between the top winners of the last presidential elections or the leaders of the last presidential election but. on october tenth. alleging that there are irregularities in voting and of course the counting of ballots during the october tenth election so he's asking the court now to sort of suspend even the issue of going for a run of between former world football player of the george ware and the current vice president who came second in the october. elections.
9:28 pm
so basically what he wants is a complete rerun of the election and not for the two to go for a run of next tuesday how important is it for this election to be seen to be transparent. reign. in the country but how and how crucial is it really for the country to be to be seen to be a transparent election. of course this is very important for this country this particular election is coming after more than forty years of. successful transfer of power from one political a government or the democratically elected government to another so if we look back at the last two decades we've seen liberia going through different crisis from two civil wars to the ebola crisis that hit the country very hard to the economic downturn in liberia as well the poverty rate is very high and
9:29 pm
a lot of people angry a lot of people are expecting the elections that was all that was held on october tenth will be clean. sharing a new government to take care of the new the problems that seen all over liberia so basically what is happening now a lot of people angry that is and that is the fear that perhaps if anything the next round of the election and this election is suspended probably will see some angry taking to the streets and that's what the government here is trying to avoid at all cost now whatever happens during monday's judgment by the supreme court then definitely the election runoff between the two top leaders of the elections will not because simply because a lot of time has been lost way of distribution of election material was suspended training of election officials was also suspended so the election commission here will need more time to do all this to deliver materials to. counties in liberia
9:30 pm
train election officials to deal with all these problems and that will take a lot of time probably will see these elections shifted by at least another seven days or so many thanks very much from liberia. still to come. under water. and i'm on this island detention center. a world away from the violence. in the u.s. and ramping up security how preparing for sunday's new york marathon after this week's attack. hello no the parts of the middle east could see some wet weather over the next

there will see more though of sunshine across western parts of a cell of africa long lost a lot of cloud is making its way further east was weakening as it does so i think many it will be dry. news has never been more available it's a constant barrage of it with every day but the message is the simplistic you have the phrase good logical rational crazy month and misinformation is rife dismissal and denial of well documented accusations and evidence is part of the listening post provides a critical counterpoint challenging mainstream narratives at this time on al-jazeera. responding six continents across the globe. correspondents bringing the

9:41 pm
coffee and. new figures show unemployment in the u.s. fell slightly last month but the long term trend is likely to be in the opposite direction official intelligence and robotics are set to take more jobs away from people as they become more developed that's according to a us study which found that automation could impact sixty percent of businesses by twenty twenty two. is in los angeles and sent this report. don't expect this bartender to listen to sad stories about your love life he's made of metal and plastic and has no heart the world's first one hundred percent robotic bar opened in las vegas in june it's a novelty but also a warning sign till now most automation related job losses have been in manufacturing that's about to change there now it's moving over to the service
9:42 pm
sector and that makes a big difference jobs such as cashiers such as bank tellers jobs in the service industries jobs and food preparation jobs office support office administrative support the a lot of these jobs have a high risk of automation in the coming ten or twenty years it's already happening in retail stores more people are shopping online forbes magazine estimates twenty one retailers will shut three thousand five hundred stores in the u.s. this year that equals tens of thousands of lost jobs for sales people and support staff who is most at risk experts say african-americans hispanics female workers of all races and people without a college education will lose jobs to automation at the highest rates and that's going to really. change the face of our society certain cities will be hit the hardest but sixty one percent of the jobs in las vegas could be automated in coming
9:43 pm
twenty years and so a lot of the jobs are office administrative support they're in sales their food preparation and so within those industries we see a lot of workers you know doing tasks that could be taken over by robots in the coming years it seems that american workers and policymakers are not ready for the massive economic and social disruption this new wave of automation could bring as a society i don't see us prepared our politicians are remarkably silent about this issue so we're clear of course you know we had seen we have seen plenty of technological waves but we claim this time it's different it's really different no one knows how this seemingly unstoppable wave of automation will play out but in communities where mining and manufacturing jobs were replaced by robots people are suffering from widespread poverty depression drug abuse and alcoholism those robot
9:44 pm
bartenders are going to be busy rob reynolds al jazeera los angeles. almost and so it is the author of the rise of the robots he joins me live from mountain view in the u.s. state of california thanks very much for joining us on al-jazeera granules really painting a picture there of almost a robot so we have a lucian on the collards really is i robot is the i robot welds and really around the corner. well that world may not be right around the corner but we're definitely looking at a disruption especially as concerns the job market and the key is that this is going to be a lot more broad based than what we've seen in the past as that report made clear it's not going to be just about factories or warehouses or the places that we now think of seeing robots is going to it's going to scale across the service sector and lots and lots of white collar jobs so it's actually going to impact a lot of people that are also educated you know people that have university degrees
9:45 pm
as well so i think that we're looking at something quite unprecedented probably over the next ten to twenty years it's almost reminding me of what happened in the u.k. when the mining industry was closed down and whole communities were jobless what would you say that government is a multinational should be doing to look off to the workforce is this is implemented . you know i'm a proponent of a universal basic income i think that alternately in all it's not going to happen next week but within ten twenty years or more it's almost inevitable from my point of view that we're going to have to do something along those lines in order to you first of all take care of people and secondly to make sure that people have some money to spend to keep the economy going because if we don't do that we're going to have i think enormous social and economic problems as this becomes a bigger and bigger issue what are some of the things that the developments in an artificial intelligence are going to allow people to to do to the robotics to take
9:46 pm
