this is the the in years live from turkey advances into northeastern syria where the military campaign against the syrian kurds turkish bath militias are pulling down kurdish flags tearing down signs supporting the group in terms called terrorists on kurds teamed up with the syrian government to push back. also on the program poems are building nationalist more than just this particular huge election when increasing that majority after implementing with forms that critics say are anti democratic.
i'm phil gayle welcome to the program forces backed by turkey are advancing further into syria as fighting continues along a 200 kilometer stretch of the country's northern region turkey baster free syrian army is reported to have taken the city of. their fighters have been removing the flags of kurdish bat's troops and raising their own it's part of a coordinated push directed by to see after american forces withdrew from the region. the turkish president. has indicated that he's troops are also ready to launch an assault on the syrian city of man beach in the west which is currently held by syrian cuts to media reporting that the country's forces arrived at the edge of the city in the last 24 hours.
how will syrian government forces fighting alongside the kurds change things. well the situation there on the battleground in northeast syria got much more complicated with the latest developments to say the least now off to the kurdish forces that have officially turned to the syrian government and its allies russia for military assistance bashar al assad has been sending units of troops we don't know how many from aleppo and nearby military bases to woods monday which and as you just mentioned that monday in north in syria is one of the areas the army is right now preparing to attack they have been sending additional tang's reinforcements over there so right now everything seems to be possible in the next days a direct military confrontation there between 2 armies or turkey eventually backing down. and.
we heard president add on earlier today and he said he is determined to go hat with this open ration until the very end so far no signs of relenting there from ankara but it's probably safe to assume that a lot of crisis talks are taking place right now behind the scenes phone calls probably being exchanged between ancora and moscow as well it will be important what moscow say is about this because russia is bashar assad's most important and strongest ally there in the region but of course this is all taking place on the political level it's very important to pay attention to the human suffering on both sides of the border and now it's day 6 of this military operation there have been a number of civilian casualties reported on the syrian side but also on the turkish side as well at least 18 civilians have been killed here on the turkish side in apparent reprisal attacks from syria now we wasn't at one of these
a border towns here in turkey and i brought you this report. in the turkish border town of such a public outpouring of grief. that the women mourn the death of their village chief he and 2 other men were killed in a mortar shelling an apparent reprisal attack from across the border in syria was. these days we want this war to stop nobody should die no soldiers no civilians we just want peace or futa of course we're scared we're scared for the whole country for turks for kurds for everyone no one should be killed you son $100.00. people show us where the weak tims died. within a radius of 20 meters traces of bomb fragments. sounds windows
walls vehicles. by shrapnel. the fact. that i don't think it came from the outside maybe from over there i don't know but this is from a bombs that were. similar stories can be heard in many took border towns. if people believe the war is just across the border in syria they know better now. but still the mail. supports the turkish offensive he claims the army is fighting for a good cause the enemy here in the uk to carlow we are hosting 125000 syrians you might be able to imagine how difficult that is we want a safe zone to resettle the $3500000.00 refugees that have become a burden for turkey over the past 8 years but europe occasionally sends
a little money but we pay the real price syrians should go back to their homes. the area northeast syria that is supposed to become a safe zone is anything but. for days the turkish army and syrian opposition fighters have clashed with kurdish militia and while they are busy fighting each other there are concerns that isis jihadists which are already defeated in the area might be able to regroup. international criticism of the turkish military campaign is growing the united nations say the offensive has caused more than 100000 civilians to flee but the consequences of also been dramatic on this side of the border in turkey and many people we've talked to here are hoping that the violence won't continue to escalate but this includes people inside rich who are grieving over the death of their village chief. and pray that the turkish military operation
will and before they have to bury more of their loved ones. were murdered. back to. the real is the threat of isis fighters escaping from prisons where they're being held by the kurds and perhaps starting to fight again. well from what we understand there from the syrian side the situation in some of these camps seems to be quite chaotic and that is something the kurdish forces there have been warning about from the very beginning they said we can't have 2 battles one against the turkish army and the other one against a so-called islamic state now we had have heard reports that some of the isis supporters family members have managed to escape one of the camps there and we have at the same time claims by the turkish military that the kurdish militants have
released or set free ices members before the turkish forces arrived there so we were not able to independently verify this but there is a lot of conflicting information out there right now but there are real concerns that isis might be the group that benefits from the emerging chaos that in northeast syria. and you know han in southern turkey thank you so much. the european union meanwhile has condemned his incursion into syria and you foreign ministers meeting in luxembourg have agreed to restrict the delivery of arms to turkey but they didn't agree on sanctions against ankara. brussels bureau chief max hoffman come of those talks in luxembourg today but you foreign ministers could have started down the path of economic sanctions against turkey they could have also started down the path of and e.u. wide arms embargo against turkey but they didn't they chose weaker measures one of
them condemning the military operation by turkey in north syria the other one recalling the national efforts the national arms embargo you member states it is a signal of unity but it's a weak signal that many think it's so weak because some of the e.u. are very worried that turkey could terminate the e.u. turkey migration agreement and that would spell real trouble so a signal of unity but it most likely will not make a difference on the ground. well it's hoffman in luxemburg can now take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world police and protesters have clashed at the boss alone as air force follow guilty verdicts on down to 12 tatooine separatist leaders 9 a word jailed for between 9 and 13 years for their roles in a failed succession secession bit in the 2017 when catalonia held a vote on becoming an independent state. the riot police have been deployed in the

election with all of the votes now counted the p.i.a.'s has a 43.6 percent of the vote significantly more than in the last election 4 years ago but it's not yet clear whether the party has enough seats to govern alone in the last to turn the nationalists implemented you do show a media reforms that drew criticism from brussels which accused the polish government of eroding the rule of law. there are already another crime in power. and. said that me well that's the goal we have 4 years of hard work ahead of us. for his poll and we must continue to evolve and in progress. with human parts we must maintain our credibility which you must ensure that no one
