11:51 am
divide the terror corridor 490 kilometers down the middle we will advance 30 to 35 kilometers into syrian territory according to the state's own map which we have declared before. that means there is likely a phase 2 of the military operation that would involve more fighting with the s d f who were abandoned when u.s. president donald trump effectively gave turkey a green light to launch the operation a few days ago now the u.s. administration which long called the s.d.f. partners unexpectedly announced it would roll of american troops from the north east leaving this corner of syria up for grabs. we are facing genocide so all options are open we are ready for negotiations with damascus the arab league the european union and even iran who have a complainer role to stop the invasion. the population of this corner of syria is fearful of what comes next arabs and kurds live here they have
11:52 am
a long history of animosity syria's war has deepened old wounds that little trust between them means there is a dangerous fault line there are reports of a russian brokered deal to allow syrian government troops to enter kurdish controlled towns of bani and members that would prevent turkey from including those towns in a so-called safe zone that it wants to create in northern syria how turkey reacts is not clear but it may try to prevent that from happening because it would disrupt its plans to create what it calls a peace corridor along most of its border turkey's syrian allies are already heading to the front lines following an announcement by the syrian army that it was sending troops to the north of the country new front lines are emerging the new landscape may be drawn militarily or by back door deals but there seems to be a likely outcome this may be the beginning of the end of kurdish rule in north

eastern syria. on the turkey syria border later sent us this update. fast moving developments tonight it states is decision to leave northeastern syria effectively created a vacuum there are many players in the syrian conflict and all of them would like a stake in this corner of syria it is a strategic corner it is where oil fields are located it is the ag it's the bread basket of syria for the damascus government is cash strapped it would it would definitely want to regain control of this area the s.d.f. the kurdish led the f.m. had little choice because 1st of all it was abandoned by its allies the united states and it is coming under attack and the turkish army along with their local allies the opposition syrian national army they have been launching an operation against a group they consider a terrorist organization because according to turkey the the backbone of the s
11:54 am
t f is a syrian kurdish armed group the white p.g. which is linked to the outlawed p k k so the s.d.f. had little choice it struck a deal with damascus a russian brokered deal that agreed to hand over the territories that remain under their control to the government now the question is will they be able to do that because the opposition is making clear that they will fight back they will prevent this from happening especially in the town of members when rebel forces have already sent reinforcements to the front lines the syrian army at the same time saying that they're sending troops to the north of the country to face what they're calling a turkish invasion so that the risk of conflict is real is specially if these players cannot negotiate a coordinated withdrawal or an agreement of who takes what in what area. funerals been held for a kurdish leader who was killed in the ambush on saturday the secretary general of

future syria party was returning from a meeting when her car was attacked allegedly by turkey backed fighters a driver an aide were also killed the syrian observatory for human rights says armed groups supported by turkey have killed 9 civilians in the area. meanwhile turkey's president has dismissed claims that i saw prisoners of escape from detention centers in northeast syria it follows reports that an unconfirmed number of people fled from a center in ainissa after it was shelled by turkish forces the s.d.f. says another prison camp income initially was shelled by turkey on friday president obama says his forces will take responsibility for thousands of i saw fighters and their families in northern syria. when anyone sunday the u.s. announced it was pulling out all remaining american troops from the old and syria the us president has been accused of abandoning the kurds his secretary of defense has been on sunday talk shows trying to defend donald trump's position israel's in jordan $35.00 days into the turkish military operation in northern syria the u.s.
11:56 am
military is pulling about a 1000 soldiers out of the combat zone we find ourselves as we have american forces likely caught between 2 opposing advancing armies and it's a very untenable situation the kurds have been very good partners in the d.a.'s campaign they were very good fighters on the battlefield we obviously enabled that as well but at the same time we didn't sign up to fight the turks on their behalf the u.s. administration would rather keep the focus on turkish president recip tayyip erdogan whom they accuse of planning to attack syrian kurds no matter what on twitter president donald trump said will be held accountable dealing with lindsey graham and many members of congress including democrats about imposing powerful sanctions on turkey treasury is ready to go additional legislation may be sought there is great consensus on this turkey has asked that it not be done stay tuned but trump's withdrawal order has critics accusing him of abandoning the kurds even
11:57 am
those democrats now drafting a sanctions bill against turkey for god's sakes what are they waiting for right people are being killed right now are syrian kurdish allies are being killed right now it looks like many of the isis detainees there about $10000.00 fighters are now possibly going to be able to escape there are reports this morning that isis sympathizers have already escaped thousands of them and here you have secretary minutiae saying oh well we'll think about it maybe we'll do something president trump tweeting that he's going to destroy the our economy they look ridiculous right now and those republicans who normally support trump's foreign policy. to see this yet again you know leaving an ally behind abandoning people that we frankly told that we were going to be with is disheartening depressing frankly it's weak and i don't see how it follows through on the president's promises biggest from us in the campaign to defeat isis because i think it is going to research conflicting
11:58 am
priorities in a war zone with no clear idea where the u.s. troop withdrawal will lead rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington and i could as government has just agreed to repeal a law that ended decades old field subsidies after holding talks with indigenous leaders earlier demonstrators angry at the rise in fuel prices attacks government buildings and burnt media offices they were defying a government imposed curfew in the capital quito protests 1st began nearly 2 weeks ago with money regular joins us live now from might also just bring us up to date on what's been agreed between both sides. well there are celebrations taking place on the streets of quito right now if you can hear behind me there is fireworks going on cars honking their hone horns people celebrating what's woods been deemed to be in agreement finally between the confederation of indigenous communities from across the country that have been protesting for over a week calling on the government to reverse course on
11:59 am
a economic policy that sought to and decades were decades long fuel subsidies and austerity program that the government that many saw as being damaging for the country and they seem to have managed to come up with an agreement with the government where that's exactly what they're going to get the government has decided to abandon this policy measure and instead form a commission an inclusive commission that takes into account the voices and participation of indigenous leaders to find not only a solution out of this crisis but an economic policy that's beneficial to all sectors of society so this is something that that we personally were not expecting to be reporting this evening given what we saw take place earlier today a good continuation of clashes between demonstrators and protesters people in the streets saying that they had lost confidence in the government lost confidence in the president calling on the resignation of president president letting modena so this is certainly good news and hopefully it means a lasting peace for the streets of people and and the rest of the country yeah and
12:00 pm
that's just about to ask you about also where does this then lead the turf you and the other restrictions placed against the protesters. well on saturday that curfew was announced nationwide on sunday morning that curfew was lifted partially for the country except for one sector of don't specifically the areas where many of the demonstrators were staying were sleeping. we should mention however that despite this curfew a lot of people were still defying the curfew a lot of demonstrators are still taking to the streets still clashing with police into the night that appears to be over but we should mention that indigenous leaders have condemned the heavy crackdown the repression against peaceful protesters by authorities here in quito they cited a few statistics here more than 2000 people have been wounded since these clashes broke out more than a week ago 10 people have killed and have been killed unfortunately since the start of the unrest here in the country's capital and more than
12:01 pm
a 1000 people have been arrested so there are still there are still many things that need to be ironed out there still calls for justice for the people that have been killed are still calls for an investigation into those.
