involved to take steps to lower tensions and reduce the risk of new clashes bad actors who use protests as a cover to incite violence and danger and sent by us the palestinian ambassador was very clear about his government's view of what happened on the gaza border those who brought the violence and the killing of the israeli on forces our people in the gaza strip raising not a banner of faction but the palestinian flag demonstrate it peacefully peacefully peacefully and they were attacked by the israeli armed forces it's a massacre by them the u.n. secretary general antonio terraces issued a statement calling for a transparent and independent investigation into what happened on the gaza border the un security council however can't even agree a statement with the u.s. as it's done so many times before taking one side that of israel james. or the united nations. churches president has rejected france's offer to mediate between
ankara and kurdish armed groups in syria dismissing emanuel out of his death comes a day after u.s. president donald trump contradicted his own defense chiefs by saying that u.s. troops would pull out of syria very soon stephanie. the americans have long had a presence in this part of northern syria supporting the syrian democratic forces arrest in the fight against eisel but turkey views the kurdish y p g which makes up the bulk of the s.d.f. as a terrorist organization and in the latest twist french president met with an s.d.s. delegation on thursday night in paris an offer to mediate which isn't going down well in ankara but there's the. micron says that he gave guarantee of support to the y p g that france can be mediators between turkey and the s.d.f. who gave you this juji do not engage in things beyond. turkish armed forces have
already taking the troll of much of the syrian problems about free in pushing out the y.p. everyone has long threatened to push further east on to members where the us has military bases and all the way to the iraqi border the americans have also been monitoring the potential front line between kurdish fighters and the turkish backed syrian rebels who are nearby and to complicate matters even further the u.s. commander in chief had this to say and by the way we're not going the hell out of isis will become another syria like very soon let the other people take care of it now very soon very soon we're coming now. that boast goes against what american commanders have been saying all along that the u.s. will remain in the northeastern part of syria for now to prevent the resurgence of beisel trump port even the state department of guard i can't comment on what the president supposedly said i haven't seen and i have to refer you back to the white house. i have not seen it myself and said it i have not seen that myself ok. you don't necessarily comment or report on things that have been. heard second hand and
i'm not going to do that that's ok that's fine so you're not aware of any policy determination to poor to pull the us out of i am not know the us presence in syria gives it a stake at the negotiating table as long as troops men tain their presence in the kurdish areas the war in syria is now entering a phase where russia turkey and iran are in the process of bartering for their strategic interests. the kurdish y p g currently controls around twenty percent of territory in syria the second highest area of land up to president bashar al assad and his forces turkey wants that to change it's anyone's guess how it will play out stephanie decker al-jazeera. a syrian rebel group has denied reports it's agreed to evacuate the last opposition held on plate at least until to both russia and the syrian government say they've reached a deal with. to leave the town of duma but representatives of the group say the reports falls on wednesday syria's government issued a three day ultimatum to get out or face an all out offensive. as more from beirut
. another example of just how complicated things remain on the ground in syria the russian military has stated that it reached a deal with a rebel group jaish an islam and the judicial islam had announced its intention to evacuate. which the rebel group is still holding and that they would seize control of that area but a short while after that she issued islam in fact denied those reports saying any reports stating that their group had in fact reached a deal with either the syrian government syrian pro-government forces or the russian government were patently false we spoke with the spokesperson for islam by it up he said this our position is still clear and steadfast the rejection of force displacement and the demographic change of the rest of now this really isn't
a change from what we've heard from the past several days while they are negotiating to try to reach a deal with the syrian government and the russian government they do not want their fighters to have to evacuate the area this is all coming at a time when there's a lot of concern of course about the humanitarian impact of what is going on it's still unclear just how many civilians may be trapped in duma how they will be able to get help and of course this comes at a time when there was another deadline given there was a deadline given by the syrian government the russian government saying that if jesuits now and did not come to some sort of an agreement with them by saturday evening that they would go ahead and go into that area and attack that area with full force. a white police officer in the u.s. state of louisiana has been fired for the killing of african-american alton standing another policeman has been suspended for three days thirty seven year old sterling was held down by the two officers and shot dead in the city of baton rouge and twenty sixteen michaela reports from washington d.c. . the current recruit. the baton rouge police have finally
