7:34 am
a city destroyed is future remains unclear. and. i don't summers know not where the nation. and i are. it's been a week since the syrian democratic forces with the help of intensive bombing raids from a u.s. led coalition dealt a huge blow to i saw by taking full control of the syrian city of raka in twenty fourteen eisel captured the city and made it the defacto capital of itself reclaimed caliphate the offensive against them which began in june cause of widespread destruction leaving roughly two hundred and seventy thousand people homeless and sparking a serious humanitarian crisis and while the fall of russia is a major setback for eisel the ordeal is far from over for the people of this once vibrant city joining us to talk about this in germany abdulaziz is
7:35 am
a former rocco rest into so now co-founder of rock is being slaughtered silently a group of activists who use citizen journalism to expose the tactics of i still also in germany mohammed coulda is another former resident of rocca he's now c.e.o. of sound and picture a documentary organization committed to recording the violence of eisel in syria and iraq in france nicholas ten in a former journalist who was kidnapped by and i saw iraqi that was back in twenty thirteen and helped captive for ten months and in turkey hashem he's a senior correspondent for al-jazeera he's been covering the conflict in syria for this network good to see you everybody good to see you jed's let me start with some video some footage from about a week ago celebrations dancing in morocco have a look. mohammed you use a little rocco when you saw the celebrations it's mission accomplished what kind of victory in states. is. actually showing me because.
7:36 am
i live the rest of before i feel that there's people just dancing in the bodies or camels or friends they seem they don't break from and we know that this is not a true because this is the regime that thousands of civilians will have been killed because it's close to. thousands of civilians are displaced now many of the civilians are from outside in their camps and living in very bad conditions there are many thousands who are being killed in these operations by us what was your what was the if and why quality strikes and nobody dancing because they don't sing for example and names as well which is one of the most dangerous schools in the ward. many executions. but in this where and now they've done and this is where they should respect the lot of our families and friends and they should not do that it's not so easy i'm home and i hear what
7:37 am
you're saying there want to share this perspective from said he says iraq that being the defacto headquarters of isis or i saw the fall of rock then is a victory in the sense that question is the dream of an isis caliphate he goes on to say though but the fall of iraq that doesn't signify the end of isis are i still have that as either what do you make of sense comments do you see it as a victory and does this mean that i saw an iraq that is now over. so yeah i don't see it as a victorian like as mohamed mentioned and like i want to say that ninety per cent of the city is drawing. like i'm from morocco being born and bred there or like the city completely different than the city that i know the city that i grow up in so everything is completely different like as you can see in this particular this video. and like why those people are dancing and considerate as
7:38 am
well they're rationed i talked with many people who was the city recently and they said they could then like stay there because of the smell of the chairs of the civilians are killed and the rubble so i'm like i was just talking with friends here in germany and they told me after second block after the second world war one that your. and lean they stay silent so they didn't dance they respect the people who've been caught during the bottle rocket was a completely different and like it's not only me like rocker is it then to rock and be able to live in their songs because so there is as liberation more than and your cube action i'm hearing recommitted yeah you know it's going well it was i was in the square in downtown baghdad as if some of the invasion and i can very well. understand the ceiling of the people who. were in there are so mean to
7:39 am
their own city and tending to their liberating actually just laying there on flags because this is. where they are just. because he said pretending why did he say for time that i think. well i just look at these pictures just as you're answering yourself by displaying this pictures as you're asking me this question so is this a liberation and then this picture of just answering the question i don't you think covering the story. for al-jazeera i'm just thinking about the coalition's perspective of what do they feel that they have to change right now with rocca. basically for the u.s. led coalition against this is quite a significant moment because. as you said was the self proclaimed capital.
7:40 am
in syria for them to. significant because it is the next push will be to take over. which is the last remaining stronghold twice and in syria also an indication of the growing influence of the which is a coalition of kurds and it is mainly led by the white p.s.u. which is one of the most powerful kurdish factions operating on the ground so i think it serves the not a tip of the push by the international community particular by the american allies to continue their fight to tighten the noose around in iraq and in syria and for the moment they can manage to evict them from major cities or. is quite a step forward. and one who is saying in the past just
7:41 am
shortly ago this is something that came really with the price we're talking about thousands of civilians were killed we're talking about entire neighborhoods in. which were completely destroyed that is it won't be easy it would really take some time for people to be able to go back to their own areas or hashimi you mentioned the civilians killed and the houses and neighborhoods destroyed i want to share a picture tweeted to us this is a magazine has soon he is a syrian journalist based in germany he says civilians aren't allowed yet to come back permanently to the s.d.f. or the syrian democratic forces that hashem mentioned allow them to check their homes and to see the damages only and you can see this picture here that he included so what life is like for those who are still there the very few or those who fled and are in camps outside the city is what this video commenter wants us to know about this is her saying that bush and this is what he told the stream. the camps are not proper places and the people are live in it in full circumstances and
7:42 am
everyone i spoke to all they want is to go back room but the sad reality is that their homes have been destroyed in the fighting mike can you take us through what the humanitarian situation looks like for those who fled or might still be there it's very matter to asian and even about those who might as i'm speaking about that's as the as a lump sum be able to go back to their homes actually they didn't have a lot of a lot of people was very shows and i'll mention a band and it's not here and there for hoods and last a few days they are meant to go back again to see their homes but as the shoots some of them were angry and there is between those civilians they just wanted to go back into their homes to check it to see if there are any maybe people on the rubble to see what's happened to their homes what is the different rhythm of doing that and about the camps there are. any kind of human conditions in these camps
7:43 am
they deal with them and very brightest way they deal with them they just because they are from rock out from years of they speak with them and rises to a they told them you are isis supporters but in fact that another isis supporters they wear under a pure white of isis and they are the most people also buy them from places that isis executive and there have families executed friends of them and save their homes so this is the problem is the see the people from those c.d.'s who are from as i supporters but this is not a joke we know that they were forcibly just to live under isis going on because they cannot go back. outside of this is. what can you tell us about the syrian democratic forces than now looking off to the same refugees from iraq at the iranian the caps kind of overseeing rock of like now what do we need to know about . this is. well we've been in touch with.
7:44 am
live in makeshift camps on the outskirts of basically we're talking about thousands of people have fled the fighting thousands of people who are trapped inside when they managed to flee some of them risked their lives trying to. journey and they were told to go to areas where they would find food and shelter. there was basically nothing talking about many makeshift camps very poor conditions and they probably were talking and now about in the coming weeks is going to get really cold of those areas they have nothing international aid agencies are trying to get to those areas to to provide immediate aid to the people so the there really many cases of sufferings among the people the problem is that the if you think of this particular moment no one can go back to because it can so they say that some of the houses might be still booby trapped there might be some miners in different
7:45 am
areas of the time the alleyways that lead to the old town so there's absolutely no way for those people to go back home any time soon. so that they might never be able to go to the back to the areas in the near future so we're talking about really a very delicate situation for thousands of people hostage now trapped in the midst of the vast desert areas with nowhere to go you know what you said is actually echoed here on twitter as well this is the other who says even after i so have been pushed out of iraq many are still dying by stepping on landmines landmines that were left behind as a nasty surprise really just picking up on what you said there another person this is you to live through it's right send the biggest problem for rocca is house and food and that should be fixed first i believe as he heard what hashem said about aid agencies knowing that this is a priority right now what are the families feeling in this moment are you still
7:46 am
talking to people who are on the outskirts who have fled rocka and what are their concerns. you know like i'm. living rock and. talking of course about the cams and major chamish. and arresting camps they can't believe that you have. to cry and tease them before they're up to being in their own city and they are kind of arresting can and then like. die because of their backs and dishes and cam or their like and there are risks there are having like that vaccinations there are leaving with best places to lock them. in there are there are saying no where is that these are all things and like them and problems that they're facing right now even like they consider towards health and food and anything of recruitment quite is the forcing
7:47 am
children and a team to join them and. so those children who were lucky to survive. some of them were not so lucky to survive in the their families did them joining us i'm not talking only about children even like everyone there is like a military so i don't know where to go what to do living with all this condition violations that have been committed or that sign talking about the first is there all of the international organization like the humanitarian. lately. shows that count this i talking about a lot of you have been counted aside. as the have control since almost two years and people are dying there because of their bad conditions. and like and like talking about more and more of the violations as others mentioned there are lots
7:48 am
also directing can be shouting before forcing people to join demonstrations cheering for a blood. or challenge the leader which concerns the internationally extremism organization talking about ethnic leanings this burning power to order things was even not mentioned in the media everyone was watching. but what about the rest of people who are suffering this. no nicholas i had i would like or i would like also to mention people who have disappeared. during the three years of. mission of rock have a well according to some organizations around thousand four hundred times of working out i've been captured kidnapped by isis but it's. actually one of the moment since the collapse of iraq yeah there
7:49 am
is a trend. there are a mix of genes from their families or friends. get some information about their fate up some accounts or especially. the. hash tag where i know we're out of the. or where i was a kid not. even the hash tag and they. really communicate in english and french and many of their. friends and families live in the west they try to get information from also the pollution also from western sources to try and look only to get in touch with the kurds. out of the seven. seven thousand four hundred. prisoners not all of them survived but some of them must be still alive where are they have been taken
7:50 am
away with the being jailed these are maybe some of them may very well have been mistaken for jihadists and be at the moment prisoners. of the coalition or of the yes because i'm glad that you mentioned that actually we received tweets from people alerting us to that this is. and again he says these people are the first who fought isis are i still in iraq a long before the world knew i asked that they detain since twenty thirteen and twenty fourteen we want them that's just a few of those pictures of course we can't independently verify any of the faces on this but the twitter handle for more information is kidnapped by isis you can see it on my screen here and they say we also ask that they help us in learning more relevant information about the prisons and jails that were formerly run by isis but with no one actually in charge or at least it being unclear on who's in charge
7:51 am
whether it's the s.t. asked for whether it's a vacuum who will they get that information from and do you see that actually being forthcoming. we saw a lot of crisis members live there since the enemy some of them without any prisoners with them we know that there were a lot of prisoner and this is when isis militants left in the city and is the kind of trouble and now is the question of why americans say that the president was over we couldn't find any president in the prisons but we know that this is not a drill because we could document many analysts brazenness there are families for him outside of rockwell and there were members of as the whole then and ask them to pay money to get information about these brazen things so this is not a true they had information and they have maybe also many of those prisoners they take them as i saw what we know that this is not possible because they show a lot of photos for hundreds what they see they are isis members came to is the one
7:52 am
from you know most of them are just sitting against and now they became a brazen i was with is the is on top of it supporting isis but in the back there were many isis members who i says i know specifically one of them who was a single who i says and became as. is the if so that's wrong about of isis joint is the is ups are making some deals and syrians became brazen i was just on a charge of supporting this is something about the situation and is the if they don't show the full reality of the situation ok i guess let me just remind our audience about how the quest made the headlines genest mostly don't want to be in the headlines this is a headline some three years ago from the guardian newspaper kidnapped french journalists were changed together chained together in underground cells he was nicholas being reunited with his family they still picture looks adorable i want to
7:53 am
the video of him because actually getting off the plane and seeing his family right that because he was a rocket for ten months. knox no voluntarily and i mean what help i still so this this idea that i so is now being pushed or pushed out of iraq or that must resonate for you personally when you know that that's what next for the city does i mean of course i well it's extremely important for me to see most that this is no longer on record because this was. holding the city just like. they are i mean. it was a colonial state. this is colonial they. bring dream stapleton must names but actually they asked people from all of us a war. by land that was previously already
7:54 am
a part and and to keep the purpose and have it sent out this is the reality of the u.s. so yes that's a great satisfaction for me to know that these people will have me and also many of my friends very hard on now out. of that. i don't want them to be out for good mending i don't want them to either stay in the mind of the people that's one reason or are nuts are people. and so it was it wasn't so bad i mean if if he just wrong maybe in two years he becomes of reckons he will be willing i suspect. so i don't want that and i want to get rid of them for good and that's just that missions appear and the most yes we must yes. but we also have to solve well believe in solutions.
7:55 am
because as long as there will be a little while syria well there will be tourism about me just a question and so many people are asking right now i mean we just pull one off from a ham educators twenty feet who will pay for the reconstruction of iraq or you've been watching during part of this program how devastated rocker is another al-jazeera headline exactly the same question the reconstruction of iraq or ashim what are you hearing about that there's so much work to be done no infrastructure no facilities no power nothing nothing iraqi right now what are you hearing about how it's going to be rebuilt. we do understand that the united states of america has no interest with different countries like saudi arabia that hoping to tap into the deep pockets of saudi arabia to play a significant role in rebuilding iraq but i have to say that the political landscape in iraq a set of three main complex and i personally have doubts that they might be able to
7:56 am
move forward any time soon if they can't solve some of the problems they face now rocky is under the control of a local council and they are science which is the local police unit however because you know in iraq there is the out of community and the kurdish community and there is this growing divide because the arabs out of tribesman now feel that the kurds are now expanding their territory again and influence and then they feel somehow. sidelined and discriminated against by the kurds number two during the celebration of the video you are showing earlier the kurds were displaying the huge posters of the lot was ellen who is the leader of the. d.k.k. and this is something which has backfired here in turkey turkey considers. the some of the kurdish factions in syria as a terrorist organization so they're really concerned that they've made it quite clear that they would never allow them expand further or create a corridor out of the old or the border with turkey unless those problems are
7:57 am
solved i can't personally see the international community stepping in pledging some making some pledges are starting the reconstruction now for the reconstruction to start also you have to have to find a permanent political solution to the crisis in syria and this doesn't seem to be the case any time soon so we're talking about why did a ray of complex chavez. milkha i will end here with right now who i think would pick up on the wider paint or a a problem trainer says who will rebuild which will take years restoring basic essential services clearing up explosive devices and then who will govern graca. so many questions so many audiences on set right now but before we go we want to make sure that you know how to get involved in our show every day we're streaming live on al-jazeera english page and you find the show on the upcoming life streams and say join our community and. and you too can be on the strange gentleman thank you
