mike hanna thank you very much indeed. taking place in several cities around the world ben smith spoke to some demonstrations in abbeville in iraq's semi autonomous kurdish region a little love lost here between the kurds in this part of northern iraq kurdish controlled parts of northern iraq and the turkish authorities the crowd has been chanting one terrorist or one terrorist and there is also a real feeling here of betrayal by the americans the kurds here saying that one day they are leading the fight with the americans against i saw and then the next day has been about. this 5 of them in the isis. was. 30. 3 you surprised by what the americans did of course everyone is surprised that
6:01 am
america was by sight of kurdish rebels by crusade with the storm help for critters and where they leave kurdish arrows aba. residents and it was crazy because in one night every one of them was strangers it's a chance for turkey to dominate us and kill the kurdish people so the american government has always promised our protection but now we see no protection that's why we think the strikes there are already some 225000 syrian kurds in this part of northern iraq hiding sheltering from syria's civil war and the authorities here. camps an accommodation for another $30000.00 should they cross over the border from northeastern syria and the or far to say the k r g cup and they said when turkey's incursion started they said the consequences of the military escalation have implications far beyond syria's borders creating the
6:02 am
conditions for a return of eisel and a mass displacement of people. well talk is offensive has triggered a humanitarian crisis in northern syria where people have already suffered through years of war aid agencies say nearly half a 1000000 people are at risk the u.n. estimates the number of displaced at 810-0000 saying that market schools and clinics have been closed unicef is warning that access to safe drinking water is restricted and medicines becoming increasingly scarce so far 30 civilians have been killed in the fighting that's according to the syrian observatory for human rights . what should count one is the director of the international rescue committee in the u.k. was previously a field director in syria he joins me in the studio now thanks for coming to talk to us so these reports of tens of thousands of people fleeing the area is what's your assessment of the scale of the humanitarian crisis the offensive is calling causing well it's frightening for a number of reasons the number of displaced is expected to be over 100000 at this
6:03 am
point what's more worrying is that they've already been displaced many times i used to know families and commission either have fled homes now fleeing new fighting in what was previously a safer part of syria and they're fleeing to places like iraq a city the former caliphate capital for the isis which is in ruins and there is no safe drinking water very little food and we don't have access to them because with the fighting going on as it is humanitarians haven't got the freedom of movement that they need so if if the options of places like record which is a pretty bad already where else can they go where would you where do they do you think well there's a real sense of desperation there are as the staff are hearing from syrians because they don't know where to turn they're going further away from the syria turkey border that was previously probably the safest part many are fleeing east as your report had indicated towards iraqi kurdistan but really there's a real squeeze of safe areas in syria left as
6:04 am
a result of this offensive and to terms of what the aid agencies can do how do they work in these circumstances when even u.s. troops are kind of caught unawares at one point it seemed to they were they were kind of in areas where they suddenly had to move away i mean it's really dangerous if armed u.s. forces are at risk when i ask the humanitarians without weapons have to move around and work we temporarily suspended programs but have restarted mobile health clinics where we can and we're working around hotspots to try and reach as many people as possible but populations are moving away from urban centers away from the bombing and therefore harder to find and harder to help so i mean we've not had reports that germany france and other european nations have actually stopped their weapons sales to turkey how much of a deterrent effect you think that will have. i'm not sure that by itself is going to be enough of it to terence in the short term displacement is already occurring. and other groups are already engaged in fighting we hope that there can be a negotiated solution that satisfies both parties but ultimately that will only
6:05 am
localize and solve this conflict there's still the wider syria conflict that we're fighting why in terms of tech human in the past take is actually had to deal with quite a large number of refugees so it seems peculiar in some ways that the in danger of creating another sort of wave of refugees well turkey has done a great job in hosting 3600000 syrian refugees by far the most they hope by creating a safe zone it's a place for syrians to return but we would say that has to be on a voluntary basis and currently there's bombing going on in that safe zone and more importantly a safe zone doesn't solve the conflict in syria we need syria to be safe not safe zones in syria and in terms of how you see this playing i mean you've been you've been you've lived in syria you've kind of worked there where do you see this going you think it's going to be a short term incursion by the turks or do you see this kind of escalating the syrian the syrian civil war and continuing for some time well it's really hard to know what the final objective of the turkish forces are but we do know that both sides have been quite intractable in their positions and stuck in the middle over
6:06 am
450000 civilians so we have real concerns particularly as there's nowhere else safe within syria for people to flee to and many have fled from other parts of syria to this part so i don't see a short term end to this conflict and just briefly where would you say the biggest humanitarian need is now what's the project you're talking to your teams in the ground what do you tell them. well at the moment it's everything but i would say health clean water food all the essentials in the cute phase of an emergency response but if it prolongs they need everything that we would need to survive and that's a really complex emergency in a part of the world where it's very hard to get aid in says sanjay thank you very much and it comes to just thank you thank you. at least 3 people have been killed as typhoon has made landfall on japan's meno and one shoot fierce rain and wind has paralyzed tokyo even rivers flooded a normally busy streets deserted 9 people remain missing the rugby world cup

areas deemed to be vulnerable to landslides but also in postal communities where the people are facing multiple threats of course from the strong winds and heavy rain but also the possibility of storm surge and the fact that we are almost in a full moon meaning that the tide may well be a lot higher than it usually would be and many people living in these coastal areas are still recovering from the last typhoon that struck at the beginning of the last month which caused a lot of damage and resulted in several deaths as well or 3rd he's taking no chances with the transport systems as well most train services were canceled along with hundreds of flights to and from tokyo's airports and major tourist attraction in iceland is at risk of disappearing altogether because of climate change islands glass is a melting at an alarming rate with experts warning even curbing emissions may not
