6:02 am
says the force will secure areas along syria's border to the north with turkey and to the east with iraq it will be mostly made up of fighters from the syrian democratic forces a large part of that group is made up of kurdish fighters who turkey considers terrorists the s.d.f. is a u.s. backed alliance of kurdish an arab fighters controls almost twenty five percent of syrian territory in the north and the east where chalons reports. but russia's foreign minister had a stark rebuke for the u.s. on monday speaking as a media conference in moscow a lover of said the creation of his own controlled by u.s. backed rebels risks syria's territorial integrity turkey's president also opposes the plan he's attacking reports of the u.s. backed kurdish border force russia typer one says turkey will launch its own military operation against the kurds in the northern syrian city of a free shot at that it is secure well and now the united states has confessed that
6:03 am
they are forming a terror army along our border what we have to do is to strangle this terror army on our borders before it is born turkey has for its kurdish factions inside its borders for decades and doesn't want to see them gaining more power in neighboring syria box in northern syria the americans have long been supporting some kurdish forces this is a predictable turkish escalation against us steps to concretize our military part of the syrian democratic forces into an enduring stabilisation force that can secure this terrain long term turkey has been crystal clear actually that it regards the syrian democratic forces as a threat to its interests although u.s. president donald trump promised he would stop supporting kurdish fighters the pentagon never made that's official the reported thirty thousand strong u.s. backed border force would primarily come from kurdish led syrian democratic forces
6:04 am
and would deploy along the syrian borders with turkey and iraq and along the euphrates river valley the dividing line with syrian government forces. one of the syrian wars detectable trends last year was the emerging axis of cooperation between russia and turkey often joining together to criticize steps taken by the united states if today's developments are only going to go by that's a trend that looks set to continue into two thousand and eighteen were retellings zero moscow democrat is a policy analyst at the arab center in washington d.c. he says the u.s. appears to lack a clear plan. now obviously the u.s. is trying to counter the u. turkish russian. plan with the support of iran of course to try to basically have control of those of the lips so now you see a u.s.
6:05 am
reaction it's not clear what's the end game is the force are already on the ground they are changing their their their amended basically to be a border zone which means if they're going to have a border control they want to stop the turkish if it was inside syria this is what is a bit reacting this way but the the end game of the of the u.s. troops is not clear where they are now so far is they want to finish the fight to get isis civilize those are senior and go to run if when they went to congress of your selfish to look to to put forward their policy they don't have answers about what's the end game this is the the most crucial issue that two thousand and eleven there's no clear strategy for for syria so this might backfire because you don't have on the ground support you have turkey on one side you have syria already on one side and then you have also iran so who are the allies of the as the earth and the u.s. in this supposed struggle now palestinian leaders have recommended that the palestine
6:06 am
liberation organization suspend its recognition of israel they've been taking part in a meeting of the central council focusing on the american recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital in mankind as more from the occupied west bank. late on monday night the palestinian leadership issued a statement that could have far reaching consequences for the peace process the statement includes the call to suspend recognition of israel suspend security coordination with it and unite the palestinian factions through reconciliation the statement comes from the central council of the p.l.o. after two days of meetings it will be discussed further by the p.l.o. executive committee and it's up to that committee to implement the most policy at some point in the future. the statement also said that the u.s. is no longer a partner for peace and that the palestinians want international involvement but given that the us is perhaps the only country that can put pressure on israel will this work. we have to utilize different forms or back on to believe it has to know
6:07 am
that this occupation this form of brutal colonialism can no longer be accepted and therefore we have to go to the international criminal court we have to go to the international court of justice we have to join an organization. accede to charters and conventions that would protect us from the one hand count the us president donald trump has said he will cut u.s. aid to the palestinians if that happens there will be an economic impact this factory produces extract of olive leaf tablets and he's part of a multi million dollar project to encourage enterprise in jericho the occupied west bank the factory was set up in this industrial zone with japanese investment without it it wouldn't have been successful for the operations manager here it shows that there are alternatives to the us for example the issue for me is the some other interests in helping. me. change once it's
6:08 am
completed at this japanese funded industrial zone will house around five thousand workers and that's going to have a positive impact not just a locally but across the palestinian territories now if you speak to palestinians what will tell you is oftentimes foreign aid unlike u.s. aid comes without strings and preconditions. but it's not just economics politics also plays a key role according to one analyst palestinian president mahmoud abbas has options . and community. missions. and he's. looking for. solutions if you are not ready for it. despite palestinian confidence that there is no alternative to u.s. involvement in the peace process how the international community will react is key
6:09 am
at some point the israelis and the palestinians will need some sort of framework for talks without the u.s. will that will look like is currently on line imraan khan how does the occupied west bank the libyan coast guard has rescued more than three hundred fifty migrants who are trying to cross the mediterranean sea three boats carrying the migrants to europe capsized near the libyan coast or were rescued and brought back to tripoli and are now in a detention center. but francis is arrived in chile for his first stop on a visit to south america crowds greeted the pontiff as he drove through the streets of the capital santiago but there were ten scenes ahead of his visit with five churches vandalized in recent days security for the papal visit was ramped up as a result latin america editor listen human has been following his visit in santiago . pope francis is finally here in chile and he's making his way right now to santiago's maine far affair with these people are waiting to see him pass in the

popemobile but the reception is not exactly what the catholic church here would have hoped for there are people here of course as you can see but not nearly as many as one would have expected and certainly a lot less than in the other latin american countries that pope francis has visited this is likely to be the most challenging in latin america his home region because of widespread disillusionment with the church and its origin tiny leader this used to be one of the most painful countries in the world now less than fifty percent of chileans call themselves catholic and one of the reasons is the number of children who have been sexually abused by priests and even a nun these catholics came all the way from southern chile they wanted to be here when the pope passed so that he would see how upset they are with him for appointing a bishop to their city who is accused of covering up abuses. we have to do something we have to clean up the church we are angry at the heads of the church
