6:03 am
strikes with p.k.k. in iraq and parts of southeast turkey. >> and then of course the u.s. consulate behind you was targeted as well. what is the situation there, they have not apprehended everybody, have they? >> two people involved on the attack of the consulate building and opened fire at a security post connected to the building and it's heavily fortified and built on a hill top in the suburb out of the very center of istanbul. in a shootout after that the police shot and injured one woman who was heard to shout on a video we have seen that was filmed by a witness as it was happening and said i did it for my party. the man seems to have escaped so far. the area around here now has been reopened, the roads have been reopened but there still seems to be one man lodged, involved in that shootout.
6:04 am
on the other side of istanbul, on the asian side there was an explosion at a police station and ten people injured there and three police officers and after that explosion as forensic and bomb squad team checked the scene, the attackers were killed and the police officer also killed. >> reporter: bernard smith thank you very much for that update. in the last two weeks turkish security forces have moved against several groups at once, a limited number of strikes have been launched on i.s.i.s. in syria and a border offensive is due to begin soon and u.s. jets are now using turkish raids into northern syria but the main strikes have been the p.k.k. the turks have launched hundreds of air strikes against the
6:05 am
kurdish armed group so far and claimed to have killed hundreds of their fighters, inside the government has moved against a group known as the revolutionary people liberation front or the d.h.k.p.c. and many members arrested in nationwide raids since july in the embassy two years ago and joining me via skype from ankora is a military analyst and turkey correspondent for jane's defense weekly. we are just going to start out with this very probably little known group has targeted the u.s. consulate. what do you make of that? this is very amateur. >> no, not really. in fact, the d.h.k.p.c. as an organization that was set up years ago in 1994. and it's a left eest marked gro
6:06 am
and it was resurrected in 2003 with a attack, all side bomb suicide bomb attack in 2013 and the organization claimed responsibility for this u.s. embassy in 2013 and then in another attack in istanbul in the police station, the d.h.k.p.c. claimed the responsibility of the attack. the group is known with its anti-american, antinato stance and with liberation of the people against this and so on. in the latest attack against the u.s. consulate building in
6:07 am
istanbul the d.h.k.p.c. recently claimed responsibility for the attack but have not seen the details of the reasons for why it has taken the responsibility for this attack but it has coincided with the turkey granting access to anticoalition office which has been a dramatic move because in 2013 attack they say the d.h.k.p.c. and they declared they are against the u.s. military presence and also suspected to have some ties with the syrian president bashar al-assad regime. >> okay, from the sounds of it, lala, it does appear that turkey
6:08 am
really is getting it from all sides. i mean, the p.k.k., this attack on the police station and now these two attacks in the southeast of the country, do they have the signature of the p.k.k. on them? >> the p.k.k. as far as i know has not yet claimed responsibility for an attack. overnight and yesterday to the police station in istanbul. but the security forces suspected of an attack is staged by the p.k.k. but the p.k.k. lately claimed responsibility for an attack of an armed bomb attack in southeastern provinces of turkey and recently and i don't know if we can modify this but turkish prime minister i think prime minister claimed a kind of cooperation between
6:09 am
p.k.k. and the h.p.c. lately and made those remarks after turkey initiated nationwide operations on three prongs on the state and p.k.k. as well as h.p.k.c. nationwide in the country. >> thank you very much for joining us here on al jazeera, thank you. a car bomb has exploded outside the airport in afghanistan's capitol kabul and went off at the civilian entrance and at least five people have been killed and jennifer glasse is in kabul for us, what is the latest on this attack, jennifer? >> well, the taliban have just claimed responsibility for this attack and in an e-mail they say the target was foreign invader forces and nato says it's not one of their convoys at the entrance and people people have been killed and 20 injured among
6:10 am
the dead and are women and children and policemen who are stationed at the check point at the airport as well as foreigners, very large explosion at a very busy area and a main entrance to the civilian area of the airport is where people have to stop and vehicles must stop and people must get out of the vehicles and must be physically checked so a very large explosion there and the taliban claiming responsibility. >> we will leave it there for now, thank you. next iraq's former prime minister malik i has plans to reform the government and abadi had proposals on sunday which would cut several senior posts, announcement follows weeks of the demonstrations of corruption and lack of basic services and wants to get rid of the roles of deputy prime minister and vice
6:11 am
president. and assad is a member of the state of law coalition in iraq and joins me live from baghdad and thank you for joining us on al jazeera and what do you make of this announcement of reforms by mr. abadi? >> thank you very much. it has been awaited for a long time, a list of principals, general principles to assist in combatting corruption and agreements within political parties to share the power in iraq. this has definitely proved its failure in providing people with services and providing an environment for iraqi economy to flouri flourish. >> sorry, continue. >> yes, the idea is that the
6:12 am
consensual agreement that was prevailing in forming the previous government proved the short cummings and providing any type of services for the people and therefore now the general principles of reform moves away from consensual agreement and moves into more responsible prime minister for its own government where he can choose the members of his government and be answerable to the people. the major problems in iraq at the moment is that the inefficiency and inability of the ministers to perform their duties because of the wrong personalities are in the wrong places and also the amount of corruption that or the political corruption which it means that people of high position can use their political blocks to move
6:13 am
into a major corruption field. >> on the subject of high-ranking officials and personalities, it seems that he has had a very unlikely source of support from mr. maliki and do you think this will be sustained during the course of implementing these reforms? >> definitely. the state of law has declared complete support for the principles of reforms and the complete support of dr. abadi, the current prime minister, we stand altogether in the state of law to support abadi and assist him in any form or shape he requires of us. this support will continue until all the demands of the people are met. >> okay, you are talking about the principles and, you know, full support but let's talk about the reality, how easy is it going to be for these reforms
6:14 am
to be implemented? >> oh, it's going to be very difficult. tomorrow in the parliament which i believe there will be a general approval of their principles but i expect the problems will start in the implementation of such reforms which will take maybe three or four weeks or even more. then i think the parliament will revert to its old habits of opposing any reform presented by the prime minister. there was a previous attempts by mr. malaki of reforms which was completely blocked by the parliament. i do believe the parliament will exercise its rejection of these reforms but not tomorrow. it will be exercised on the implementation of reforms maybe in a month's time. >> interesting times, thank you very much for joining us here on al jazeera.
