dismisses the family's fees as it in mission of guilt those who are trepan are probably hiding something those who are present are probably members of this underground mice organization he's steadfast in his view that those killed for back there would be killing if there are no resistance armed resistance so that's what happened i think that doesn't the direction of the investigation the result of the investigation and we would soon come out and you can you can check but when we detail the cases where witnesses say there was no resistance he denies any knowledge of them just to be clear some of the alleged atrocities that i've raised with you today were saying that you're hearing things for the 1st time yes many of go what you said we have heard personally i've heard for the 1st time it should be because. must tell you that there is no such thing as
12:42 pm
a state sanctioned killings no but there have been media reports on this i mean how did you not know if this is the 1st time that i heard this indeed it. in the newspaper they don't serve and. in many of the reports are to me regard the sources because the major specially the mainstream. dominated by these super pickard groups in the in the print and maybe even. today's are over as he's taking us to kindly own city in the heart of nicholas when most of the killing us of a could in july for political figures were gunned down the who's responsible is still unknown. that that that's the side. that he left you all right and that. many lives are believe these c.c.t.v. video of the july killings busy piri similarities to official operations conducted
12:43 pm
by state forces they did not identify themselves but that that is almost the same as its flag be it the need of parity dong. there is a fully armed man you know dead to defend this because and they are are wearing fascists and they have these high power and fire arms riot yeah that since there are so many blocks just as they are just out. in the heart. the end of the freedom caught. the operation took little more than 5 minutes the c.c.t.v. cameras are on the family compound triangle in the driveway and on the god station but unfortunately there were non that captured the entrance of a house just a short walk away. according to his family city council love pramono holland dodi

12:46 pm
government is not or does not condone those things and that's going to be part of again the commitment to you to the people of beggars that we will do our part in making sure that they conduct the investigation properly sort of we will be able to pursue the criminals so you will us personally make sure that their investigation because i mean there are many who say you know it has all the hallmarks of a state sanctioned killing no there is no such thing as a state sanctioned. is the same as the. drug problem i think they say it's just the states i'm sure there's no such thing what kind of government will sanction this misgivings with the. people get hurt or especially if they're loose over systems. but just the same the government is sincere in making sure that

12:49 pm
is to send more troops and then add defense system to saudi arabia to bolster security against iran. we've come to a very substantial. phase one deal donald trump announces a partial trade deal with china after the latest round of talks. and super typhoon haiyan this close in on japan threatening to bring the heaviest rain and winds in 60 is. welcome to the program u.s. officials say some american troops have withdrawn from a military position in northern syria that came under turkish artillery fire but it appears the outpost did not take a direct hit turkish forces output. and deep into territory held by the man the kurdish fighters in syria their offensive began on wednesday the u.n. says 100000 people have been displaced john stratford is at the turkey syria border . black smoke rising over northeastern syria turkish army tanks and reinforcements
12:50 pm
move towards the border with turkey military says it's captured a number of villages around the kurdish controlled towns of to lobby out and russell i mean it's reported most if not all their civilian populations fled. the u.n. says that more than 100000 people have been forced from their homes. there are civilian casualties among the thousands of people fleeing turkish artillery shells soldiers and their syrian rebel allies turkey says it's conducting what it calls an anti terror operation to create a safe zone so syrian refugees in turkey can return. to kurdish syrian democratic forces or s.d.f. he's putting up a fierce resistance in turkey considers the main kurdish fighting force of the s.d.f. was aligned with a group which is for the turkish government for decades b.s.d.'s fought alongside
12:51 pm
u.s. forces in the highly effective in defeating eisel in northern syria and the turkish offensive began after the us withdrew some of its forces from the area. turkey is nato's a 2nd largest military power blocs chief met the turkish foreign minister in a prescheduled visit he called for restraint but no harsh criticism of the turkish government i shared with him my serious concerns about the ongoing operation and the risk of further destabilizing the region escalating tensions and even more human suffering. why churchgate house legitimacy security concerns expect churches to act with restraint turkey's president remains defiant. there is that it down most of the big to make it is that we are not waiting for terrorists to come to our door we're now aiming to destroy target is ations of their source took he only suspects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our neighbors but
12:52 pm
under one condition we are not going to accept actions against our country the turkish military is widening its bombardment of s.d.f. positions along the border forcing potentially thousands more people to flee their homes many of whom already internally displaced victims of the war in syria. al-jazeera on the turkish syrian border well richard white says that defense expert witness trot that said just a political consultancy he says washington will hold true to its threat of sanctions if turkey continues to push forward into northern syria. what the pentagon is doing is a howling that her through various channels where the u.s. forces that are the also were seen warnings in the sanctions there's that were discussed earlier today that the treasury department the pentagon has reaffirmed and that u.s.
12:53 pm
forces have the right of self defense so i think there are both the you know the department said at the level of the treasury the defense department state former arps are continuing to try and work out an arrangement by which will minimize casualties the u.s. and syrian as well the initiative now is with the turks and so it's a question of how far the turks are going to go and how they're going to do it my and understanding is that the the u.s. resistance to the turks intervention will directly reflektor how far the turks what's going to happen with those prisoners and how many civilian casualties there are so it's a limited intervention. there's no the elites of many isis prisoners al qaida is unable to regroup and so on then i think we'll see the level of u.s. warnings lack of support in public but not active opposition if over the converse
12:54 pm
occurs i think you'll see the u.s. takes much stronger steps to confront and change the surface particles that the u.s. announced $800.00 additional troops some extra equipment for saudi arabia to strengthen the kingdom security following an attack on riyadh's all facilities last month that brings the total deployment of $3000.00 u.s. forces to saudi arabia welton jordan has more now from washington d.c. . for the 2nd time in a month the u.s. is sending troops to saudi arabia to help protect that country from iranian attacks in response to continue threats in the region i've ordered the deployment to the kingdom of saudi arabia of 2 additional fighter squadrons and supporting personnel along with additional patriot and fat air and missile defense batteries taken together with other deployments i've extended or authorized the last month this involves about $3000.00 united states forces a few 100 u.s. troops went to saudi arabia in mid september after iranian drones and cruise missiles destroyed part of the op geike include heise oil facilities washington
12:55 pm
also impose sanctions on iran central bank and its sovereign wealth fund and this is on top of our oil sanctions and our financial institutions sanctions but this latest deployment is much larger because the trumpet ministration says the threat from terre haute has worsened we are accumulating risk of a regional war and i've been saying that for over a year here in another forum and then on september 14th we had an active war and we continued to accumulate risk of a worse conflict a mid east policy expert said the troop deployment is important but not as important as many assume the additional missile defense systems seem to be a clear reaction to a successful attack by drones and by missiles on saudi oil facilities which actually was a great embarrassment to the united states and to saudi arabia u.s. officials insist they're not being provocative by sending more troops and weapons
12:56 pm
to saudi arabia chances are officials in tehran will disagree roslyn jordan al-jazeera washington well president trump has defended the deployment of troops to the middle east. we are sending food and other things to the middle east the house saudi arabia but are you ready saudi arabia at my request has agreed to pay out for everything we're doing at 1st but saudi arabia and other countries do now but saudi arabia has agreed to pay us for everything we're doing down there and we appreciate that but p.j. crowley is a former special assistant to the president on national security affairs he says the deployment is to reassure gulf nations the u.s. remains committed to security in the region 1st it seems to be an extension of the u.s. reaction to you know what happened last month i think the timing of this has more
12:57 pm
to do with with well domestic political considerations and regional security considerations you know trying to ministration has taken some some heat here politically in the united states you know for its its casual response if you will to the turkish action in syria and i think this is a way of trying to balance that off by reassuring those in the regions particular goal of the united states remains committed to the security of the region while the overage arching policy is to try to push back on on your growing influence of iran in the region. and that's the policy you know whether it has an effective strategy to achieve that is a very good question you know as prime hook at the state department said today you know that the united states remains open to a diplomatic solution given the rising tension between the united states and iran
12:58 pm
by the same token when the president on down it is not necessarily creating conditions that enable that diplomatic solution to occur. the u.s. and china have struck a partial trade deal that could end the dispute between the world's 2 biggest economies donald trump has held talks with china's vice premier and suspended a tariff icon 250000000000 dollars worth of chinese imports it was set to take effect on tuesday. but we've come to a deal intellectual property. financial services. a tremendous deal for the farmers a purchaser from $40.00 to $50000000000.00 worth of agricultural products another big issue that we've come to a conclusion on is currency foreign exchange we've also made very good progress on technology transfer and we'll put some of the technology transfer in phase one phase 2 will start negotiations almost immediately after we've concluded phase one
12:59 pm
and papered it well i'm a time going as a china analyst advises the chinese government on economics and development he says trump announced this deal to divert attention from his domestic troubles. in this particular case he's echoing what is being said in beijing there's been a number of articles and some statements that indicate all the areas that he has mentioned are in fact are the deal but you know donald trump is in a difficult situation he lost 5 court cases yesterday his personal attorney has been to say compromised and he's in a position where he wants to change the narrative obviously from the financial side this will work but he's he's has some bad optics here and he risks this idea that he is caving in in order to get some good press and it's going to a lot will depend on how his base reacts to what he's proposing there's this narrative that china has been wholesale stealing intellectual property force
1:00 pm
transfers all of these types of things that the reality is that china has been taking steps you can see it in their corks and you can see in the number of cases that are being brought and won by foreign entities here in china so it's not really something that beijing is giving up it was much more of an optics at this point remember in the beginning days china did not have any intellectual property they were not part of the system registering it when they were outside the w t o s so in w t o comes along they basically have nothing today and they're one of the largest ip producers if not the largest in terms of volume and they have a real they have skin in the game and therefore they are moving to protect it you know president trump as an ounce of the acting homeland security secretary will step down and the replacement will be named next week trump said on twitter a kevin mcmullen n is looking forward to spending more time with his fine.
