you break that summit on al-jazeera back. here on the news here at al-jazeera and these are out sob stories the u.s. has to withdraw up to a 1000 soldiers from syria as turkish forces and their allies continue their offensive. have now entered. and of retaking control. as well pakistan's prime ministers held meetings with the iranian president hassan rouhani. with the goal of reducing tensions with saudi arabia and he says he's hopeful of a breakthrough soon until it seems that casting their ballots to choose a new president in
12:20 am
a runoff election the 2 candidates are political newcomers who beat more than 20 other presidential hopefuls in the 1st round. right let's go back to our top story of course turkey's offensive into kurdish controlled areas of northern syria we've got. with us now syria research of human rights watch joining us from amman jordan sara thank you for your time the united nations i mentioned earlier talking about 130000 displaced people now can you tell us more about what's happening to them. i mean currently the situation in northeastern syria is what you would cut to cries catastrophic you have 13130000 people estimated to have been displaced in the last few days most of these people are civilians and residents of the areas that are currently under control and these people essentially have nowhere to go when you take this within the larger context of syria where the country's already
12:21 am
under strain from a different displacement crisis in northwest syria this means that humanitarians ability to respond to the crisis. is severely constrained yet nothing changes does it i just feel like we have been unfortunately telling the story for years people being displaced they probably get displaced again i mean what happens to them in the long term do you think there's any hope of them going back at some point i mean this is this really is the tragedy people get displaced by violence they get the placed by authorities in control abusing their rights and this is something that human rights watch has consistently documented the problem is that the civilians often pay the price for what is happening for the political powers that are at play and in order for these people to be encouraged to return there have to be guarantees for their protection and thus far in syria's record for the past 8 years
12:22 am
that is not something that we have seen. so what can be done i mean this is an operation which clearly the turks have said we're going to keep pushing you have been not sort of listening to any calls to to pull bag is there enough humanitarian support in the region for them can the humanitarian support even get to the people who need it. that's the question i mean human rights watch has consistently urged all parties to 1st and foremost allow all civilians safe passage so allow them to flee the violence because that we have documented instances where they've actually blocked them from return the 2nd thing that really needs to happen is for the international community to support the humanitarian response there in terms of displacement crisis and for the authorities really to prioritize protection of civilians and residents in these areas and this is not something that we've seen but it's something that we continue to urge all parties to do and is this pressure that maybe not pressure but something that you talk to these members of the
12:23 am
international community about because syria is this is 8 years this has been going on if you look at the whole conflict and they can be this sort of unfortunate apathy towards the situation. i think part of the part of the reason we continue to raise these calls is that these people need to be held accountable for all violations of the laws of war and for violations of human rights and we've seen this happen in the last 18 years not to the extent that we would want it to happen but this is why we continue to to report on these violations and continue to urge parties to respect their international obligations sorry kaley from human rights watch glad we could talk to you about this thank you now a nationwide curfew remains in effect in ecuador as the 1st talks between the government and indigenous groups are set to begin later on sunday president lenin moreno has said he is willing to reassess a law which ended fuel subsidies and spawn to the protests more than

12:25 am
demonstrators filled the streets once again in doubt so you can't do it appears as though mayor people are showing up to participate enjoying the front lines of these demonstrations these people are coming from all parts of the country thinks a lot of these demonstrations clearly i lived only 2 were very scarce and economic player says that they say are damaging for the country was at one point demonstrators set fire to one of the government's main administrative buildings another group of protesters set fire to a local television station many here have a deep distrust of the national news media with unrest spreading to other parts of the capital ecuadorian president lenin modano announced a mandatory nationwide curfew sending the military to restore order to city streets and public spaces in the school it took today we have declared a curfew in quito and the valleys which is already having tangible results and we
