a headquarters in doha i'm dating travelgate also ahead anger in catalonia spain's top court sentences 9 separatist leaders to prison for their failed bid for independence. ecuador's president cancels a controversial austerity plan that spar days of violent protests plus. some of the most pristine beaches in the northeastern brazil have been covered by the crude oil that's been washing up on the beaches nobody knows exactly where this is coming from and gabriel is on doing a little is brazil story. hello syrian government troops appears to be positioning themselves for a direct confrontation with turkish forces and we're now hearing that turkish troops and syrian fighters have begun an advance on the key kurdish held city if. this comes just hours after president. warned that the offensive will intensify and
10:50 pm
that follows a deal between syria's government and the kurdish led syrian democratic forces or s.d.f. that allows syrian soldiers to deploy close to the border with turkey government forces have been quick to the cause the army is now based in several locations in the north meanwhile e.u. foreign ministers are meeting in luxembourg and they've unanimously condemned the turkish offensive they're also calling for an arms embargo. all this is happening and there's president donald trump because he suggested that the kurdish led forces may release isolators in an effort to get the u.s. actually involved once again in syria will get got part of the story from mike hanna in a moment but 1st we'll cross over to is in a flooded who's joining us from the turkey syria border clearly is in a there are new front lines that are emerging in syria talk to us about men vision particular why it's key and what's happening there right now. well you mention
10:51 pm
a new front the opposition syrian national army officially announcing that the battles to capture in the north eastern countryside of aleppo has begun the s. and a is being supported by the turkish army which is using airstrikes and artillery shelling to help the troops advance towards the city now this is a city under the control of the kurdish led syrian democratic forces you also mentioned the turkish president does have type or the gun earlier today saying that this assault is eminent we have taken a decision we took a decision a long time ago that decision was never implemented we will implement it now that decision of course is the roadmap it's agreed with the united states the united states was supposed to hand over the air to turkish army as well as their local allies but erdogan making it very clear the turkish army will not say once we control members we will leave it to quote our arab brothers because they are the rightful owners so the operation has begun the question is what happens when these
10:52 pm
troops reach the center of the city we understand that there are few 100 s.t.'s fighters holed up in memphis there is also the u.s. military so the u.s. military's presence in and around memphis on the outskirts of members syrian army troops there trying to make their way to members but the presence of the u.s. military prevents them from doing that so you have all these forces at play it is still unclear how this battle is going to play out there could either be confrontation or there could either be an agreement or there could either be a surrender so this is what's happening on that front line at the time and speaking of agreement then are we learning anymore whether it's from the political aspects or the military aspects about the agreement that was reached by the s.d.f. and the syrian government. well that's an agreement has allowed the syrian government to return to northeast syria for the 1st time in 2013 they were invited
10:53 pm
back they didn't have to fight their way back the s.c.f. was under a lot of pressure it was coming under attack by the turkish army and their allies it was abandoned by the united states now the s.c.f. the saying this is just the military agreement we didn't agree on political details political issues really have been contentious these 2 the damascus and the y p g have or excuse me the s.d.f. the y.p. g of course making the making of the backbone of the s.b.s. they have been a negotiation for over a year now they can't agree what does the s.c.f. want they want to maintain autonomy in this corner of syria the syrian government will not accept that right now it seems that they find some sort of a way to compromise but at the end of the day damascus wants to regain control of this area and the s.t.'s is going to lose this their autonomy in this region so the syrian army is stuck the turkish army and their allies are pushing in continuing their offensive and we have to make clear what is this offensive is about this is about anti-terrorism operations it is about allowing refugees to return turkish
10:54 pm
officials are stressing this time and time again even president is on said today this is a fight against terrorism not a war a war means something is between states so many are interpreted that as a message that we are not we don't want to engage in any confrontation with the syrian government so what we understand there's a lot of behind the scenes negotiations happening with all the major players and of course we all know with a key made key player is and that is russia and russia is in contact with all the different armies and players on the ground ok we thank you for that update from took ali. let's now bring in mike hanna he's joining us from washington d.c. so on the very latest mike on what president trump has been tweeting about the situation. well president trump is making very clear that he's intent on imposing sanctions against turkey and coming days he's backed in this by congress congress has been vociferously critical of president trump's decision to withdraw all forces
10:55 pm
from northern syria something that he did a week ago the remnants of u.s. troops leaving in the last 24 hours but in particular lindsey graham a senator on the foreign relations committee has been very very critical of the president but now he's been tweeting that with the president's assistance and with the president's cooperation congress will be launching sanctions against turkey in the next few days now the instruments have already been put in place on friday the treasury secretary steve newton said that president had authorized him to impose sanctions by executive order at any stage so certainly president trump appears to be lining up some form of retaliatory action against turkey given that his action has led to this crisis in the 1st place ok mike thank you well meanwhile the news foreign policy chief federico has condemned her his advance into syria and raise
10:56 pm
concerns about the rise of i saw influence in the region there conclusions we called for a ministerial meeting. of the global coalition because we see as one of the most immediate consequences of this military to it is in the northeast of syria the fact that. refined its briefing space inside that territory that worries us enormously this is i doubt it security threat to the european union not only to the european union 1st and foremost to the region and international community so we want to see. this tackled in the global coalition format. and iran's president hassan rouhani says u.s. sanctions have failed to bring his country's ecan economy down through a press conference at the presidential palace rouhani said iran will continue scaling back its commitments to the 2050 nuclear deal until the e.u. fulfills its promises he also said they're trying to reduce their reliance on oil
10:57 pm
revenues as a big has more from to what the president has been wrongly discussing domestic issues is very much for the audience here in iran he very much staked his reputation on the nuclear deal the 2015 nuclear deal which the united states unilaterally put out of last year and people they have has been a sense of apathy and anger because he staked his reputation on this deal deal a century fell through with the united states pulling starting that maximum pressure campaign and the economy has suffered now what he's saying now is that the economy is stabilizing that the currency is stabilizing and employment levels are getting better so what he's saying is that america hasn't been successful and this is he's essentially talking to the iranian people the voters because there are elections expected next year but also the criticism that he has faced at home from hardliners that from the very beginning want him and want the people around him that they shouldn't be negotiating with the united states that the united states
10:58 pm
couldn't be trusted and they've now been proven to be correct but also criticisms towards him because they the hardliners in this country are saying that you went into this deal you negotiated with the united states and look what it's scotus the russian president vladimir putin is in saudi arabia where he's expected to sign oil agreements and discuss the crisis with iran it's his 1st visit to the gulf kingdom in more than a decade his meeting king sandman and crown prince mohammed bin some man in riyadh saudi oil facilities came under drone attack last month for which the u.s. a blamed russia's ally iran to iran has denied any involvement. in guinea at least one person has died and another has been hospitalized after shots were fired at protesters demonstrators are rallying against president a plan to change the constitution and run for a 3rd term ahead of the rally 6 opposition figures were arrested nicholas has the latest from guinea's capital. this is don't tell you this is normally

a bustling road filled with people and activity it's a ghost town most people have stayed indoors because look around you these are the paramilitary security forces and the opposition accuse them of shooting them down with live ammunition now over there is this if you can still see protesters gathering this is what's happening throughout the capital and throughout the country sporadic attacks are confrontation between the security forces and protesters protesters that are out on the streets to protest against attempts by present day to change the constitution and run for a 3rd term in office now he's 81 years old and if he had his way then he would be one of the all this president and africa and many of the protesters here are young they want to see change and despite the economic growth they want more political freedom and want to get their voices heard and that's why they've taken to the streets ecuador's government has reached an agreement with indigenous leaders to
