6:06 pm
>>ty won't try to downplay the sectarian elements. it's quite easy from looking at the shia. the reality on the ground is it's much more about regional identity. the houthis are from northern parts of yemen. the people in the south, because they are from different areas and they are seen as invaders. there is a religious element but, you know, at a time howuthi movement they need support of the houthis. it is imports to try. >> french officials say at a time conflict in eastern ukraine has been constructive and substantial. leaders in moscow angela merkel and francois hollande have been in peace talks.

6:16 pm
campaign against isil targets. they don't know whether this woman is still alive or not. they are doing alternates of work right now to try to determine if that is indeed the case. >> the u.s. was believed having trouble getting more traction in its fight against isil. has that changed with the political killing of that jordanian pilot? >> certainly one of the factors that the u.s. knew it was going to have to contends with was the air war started against is ill back in august was the idea of trying to have as broad a coalition, including members of the arab community involved in the fight against is ill. certainly jordan has been one of the leading participants in airstrikes inside syria. none of the airstrikes carried out by jordan or by four other arab nations have been taking place inside iraq where he is ill also issil also is.
6:17 pm
it has made it easier in a tragic way because the u.s. doesn't have to worry so much now about being accused of trying to carry out some sort of military campaign against arabs, against arab territory because they can say, look. we have people who believe as we do that what is isil represents is a fundamental threat to all of our security and so it doesn't help the u.s.'s messaging in that sense. >> roz, is there a since in washington that isil has over played its hands with the killing of the jord anian pilot? >> it's a little too early to say whether or not there is a sense that this could be a turning point, as it were. one thing that administration officials have been telling me all week is that this is going to be a campaign that's going to take years and it's not just going to be a matter of must
6:18 pm
mustering military outfits and providing training to arab military and trying to bring in an international coalition. it's also going to mean bringing in financial punishment as it were to try to starve out is isil trying to deal with the very difficult work of trying to make is isil less attractive particularly to people here in the united states in western europe in other countries around the world, from wanting to travel to the region and take up arms alongside isil. they say this is nothing something that can be said in a matter of weeks or even in a matter of months. they say this is going to take a very long time and so while this could be, you know one of you know, success they don't know that for certain. it's going to take a long time. they are very adamant about that. >> okay roz. thank you very much. rosalind jordan in washington, d.c. the latest suffered aneian airstrikes against is isil and syria were launched in

6:20 pm
target. >> translator: show us the next target. if they occupy syria, jordan is next. we have to strike. jordan has long been a stable country and its people fear being dragged -- dragged into conflict. >> i swear we are not afraid. we are proud, and we stand behind the king and we will offer our men and women to fight terrorism. >> reporter: she surprised the crowd when she slowed up at the rally. people have come from all over the country to honor the young pilot. >> the rally in support of the government and its decision to step up the fight against isil the manner of his murder has profound profoundly shocked jordanians. some believe it turned previously sympathetic citizens against is isil. >> on thursday the army announced its fighter jets had hit is isilil's height outside.

it showed these fighter jets taking off from jordan military basis. the army says these attacks were just the beginning. these images showed jordan's royal air force officers writing threats against isil on their missiles. some say the government should be careful in taking advantage of this unique moment of solidarity. >> we should not conduct our foreign policy by the emotional feelings. jordan has been surprised for all of it. >> it is unclear how isil will respond to the bombardment. there are indications they will have to work harder to crack down on isil recruits and stop possible attacks. many hearsay that's something they will support. meanwhile, the european union has pledged a billion
6:22 pm
