another influx of refugees from province russian backed syrian government for. it was an hour focusing on capturing the rebel held city of morocco newman now it sits on an important motorway which links damascus to aleppo once syria's largest city al-jazeera. has more need. the study of how to get and. you can see civilians fleeing displacement from modern phenomenon continues same with rocket city but are not m.t.f. residents in all the surrounding villages was no authority is said the airstrikes have stopped in the last 2 days because of the bad weather the looked like there may have been some civilians drones flying over the area but there hasn't been any shelling still this if ilya's are fleeing a mosque because of the fear of defensive there are no civilians not even virtual. we're joining us from beirut is joe will soon who works for save the children it's nice to have you with us tell us about the plight that the refuse jesus facing
6:03 pm
right now and what they're in need of. today especially we're hearing about hundreds of promenades sleeping in their cars because they have nowhere to go or relations are walking towards the border with turkey is so there's no thought of it and the camps i will have to overstretch overcrowd the over the summer we saw this because no new appliances so people have know what has to go without sleeping on the street and that cause an open thin and those look and find that they are living in tents with several families huddling in one small space at the same time yeah and of course you're looking specifically at the plight that children facing one of the the specific risks the unique risks to children in a situation like this. i mean the health of the population of it is made up of children so this is a big chunk of the population when they have to flee and the current circumstances
6:04 pm
wintertime it's very cold it's been raining for days on end they are activist this is a of you know it's not to mention obviously as being wounded. according to the and 65 of them have been killed so far and this and this is a high number compared also to the u.s. of the year so children are always the 1st victim of this from flaked and you know on a daily basis we hear stories of either of them being displaced and telling us how it's difficult to be far away from home from their friends from their schools or in the worst case scenarios so that sometimes members of the same family being. and of course people on the move with nowhere to go we know that turkey has said that the . refugees it is a struggle to get the much needed support and assistance and supplies to people so
6:05 pm
what does the future look like. the future the coming 2 very bleak people are going around and so because they are seeing the problems of frances but some of them have already fled school city for up sometimes up to 10 times so they're going to all the circus and live they act to the land masses shrinking as the offensive moves knows and some but it's taken to get by the government of syria so that is less land the same number of people and civilians that's going to find a safe place to live in and it's a very dicey situation and what we hear from civilians that as it is that they see something he abandoned and now coming to you know it's the end of the year people have worries as you know a lot of on what is a of an event people that is if you know abandoned by the international community and i don't the question of the international community joel what is it that sort of the children can do you can do what is it that other agencies n.g.o.s are rival
6:06 pm
to do and what would you look to from the international community right now. the international aid organizations have been present and that's it for us now and we all do was to begin pozner those i see an organization that's not at the forefront of the response with a 2nd aid would say is delivering the aid but they are civilians themselves and sometimes they have to flee if they are in an area which is being bombarded on a daily basis they have to take their families to safety and so this is an admission the difficulty that they face on the ground and aid agencies can do so much you don't so has to begin by providing schools and and says that one of possibility more to this than education the support but what is even need this is the will follow from willing policies on the ground and that back is at the national level has to agree to see quiet and then obviously the longer lasting
6:07 pm
peace. so abyssal thank you again for giving us your time appreciate that will sources have told al-jazeera that libyan warlord have even half his forces have carried out an is strike at an oil refinery in zawiya the the tunisian border it's the 4th strike in the area in the past 24 hours libya's national oil company says no one was killed libyans have expressed anger over the latest strikes by half dozen forces with some protesting in the streets in zawiya on friday other rallies are expected in the capital tripoli on thursday turkey's president richard tayyip erdogan explained how his country would send troops to tripoli after the internationally recognized government but a formal request for military help but the administration in the libyan capital says it will only need this help if the conflict escalates were not made up there why it is live for us in tripoli and this latest strike does that indicate that
6:08 pm
precisely what president earlier one is talking about this conflict is escalating and indeed they may be that request from turkey for more ground troops. world this collation of the airstrikes by half that of the fighter jets recently has been targeting get civilian areas residential areas killing and wandering innocent civilians including women and children this could be read in terms of the actions have to cam anger. action to the news about the turkish government planning to send troops to live to libya upon official request from the government of national called which is the recognized by the united nations recently have to his forces have targeted by air strikes. an area near the oil refinery of. your city stan about 40 kilometers to the west
6:09 pm
from tripoli is until you have to and it has in its custody the high alert that was detained or was captured by the pro-government forces 3 months ago while he was targeting their locations in. so after forces are accused of committing war crimes by the government ministry of defense which is that said that have to get a strike started to get civilian areas could mount to work crimes step. so what does this do for the talk that we've heard over the past week of hopes of a ceasefire or potential mediation russia and turkey being able to create space for that type of mediation to take place. well many people here say that this is not practical on the ground it's
6:10 pm
it's the opposite happening on the ground as you know stan that russian messner ease over a 1000 russian mercenaries and have been. didley fighting along with have to forces it to take control of the capital tripoli also have to us forces have been receiving russian advances what happens and as you know that the russian medicine really is they belong to the vaga not company which. the going to cut all or is very close to the russian president vladimir putin so if colton is saying that he is hoping for a peaceful. solution to the libyan crisis this is not this is contradictory to what's happening on the ground and again the turkish intention to send troops to libya in terms of their military. accord between libya and turkey is also contradicting the situation or all these statements stan. thank you
6:11 pm
so much for that. well an airliner has crashed on takeoff and killing at least 15 people the back in jail time down near our marty airport smashing through a wall before hitting your house rescuers have worked in freezing temperatures to reach survivors of the broad. emergency crews calm the wreckage of the airliner torn in half the main body of the becket barely recognizable its ria resting in a field the flight had just taken off from the airport bound for the capital now so tom survivors say passengers screamed as the plane started shaking then tilted before smashing into a concrete faints and slamming into a 2 story house raisky has worked in subzero temperatures to save dozens of injured including 8 children see what you know we found 2 sets of skid marks from the back of the plane on the runway maining it touched it twice and mostly those passengers
6:12 pm
at the front of the aircraft were the ones who died in flight recorders have been found and have been brought in for inspection nobody will be left without state support we will provide the needed help to the families of the victims and the injured president kasim caiaphas formed a government commission and says anyone responsible for the crash will be in his words severely punished he's also declared a day of national mourning on saturday because the plane itself is so rugged and well built that they are in very high demand and it's very difficult to get a good for 100 to die. and their life seems to go on because if they will mine time and they've got a very long structure a lot the government ordered the airline to ground its fleet of dutch built jets which are more than 20 years old all back air flights have been suspended until crash investigators can work out how this happened alexia brian al jazeera. or
6:13 pm
rather why ship in turkey has closed one of the world's busy. yes waterways. nervous motorists watched as the freighter ran aground in istanbul mechanical failure is being blamed for the mishap in the bosphorus the famous narrow strait reopened after the ship was towed for repairs. iraq's in the middle of a political standoff after president refused to approve the nomination of dunny as prime minister the nomination which was put forward by the largest parliamentary bloc as for the few government protests dozens protested in tahrir square on friday vandalizing posters of a danny they praised president salyer for saying he'd rather resign than backed the nomination the demonstrators are demanding an independent candidate. we want to honor as prime minister and the pend now our door citizenship we want to generate
6:14 pm
iraqi official who can feel our pain who can relate to us someone who doesn't have any loyalty to others. as a protester i see it as a her weak action by the president of the republic but how because he rejected one of the can do this from the political blocs because that candidate was rejected by the protesters in tahrir square the political elite haven't done anything in the past 6 years and their want to be anything in the future is the same names for me. lebanon has been without a government for 2 months now political deadlock is not rare but it comes at a critical time for the economy is near collapse and the lebanese are relying on themselves to survive the crisis which is being described as the worst in decades so in a horror as this report from beirut at least 7 people a day are depending on the generosity of one woman to eat it today expects that number to rise as lebanon's economy continues to collapse her bakery is offering free bread to the poor don't leave your family hungry is what this find reads this
6:15 pm
is one of many initiatives by lebanese who are trying to help each other. a young girl asked me if she could buy half a sandwich for the 500 lebanese pounds she had that struck me i realized how people are desperate and hungry my daughters told me why don't you help people and that is what i'm doing now poverty is on the rise and so is unemployment lebanon has been without a government for weeks politicians. our bargaining over power instead of implementing much needed reforms to unlock billions of dollars in foreign aid. the dire economic situation is the result of bad economic policies of previous governments their policies failed there's been a lot of corruption in the stolen money from the state economic crisis isn't it's been building up there are no more cases of lebanese becoming homeless because. they no longer can afford rent she brought her family to this square in central beirut where opponents of the political class have been converging for more than 2
6:16 pm
months and their attempt to get rid of the political elite and i used to have a house but now my whole family 8 girls and 4 boys including my son in law live here but regardless of this bad situation i feel good because of the care and love i got from people before the uprising i never had this much supports this spontaneous and leaderless protest movement was triggered by government attempts to impose more taxes they now call it a revolution lebanese from across the sectarian divide came together to call for change but this newfound unity is not complete these concrete slabs are a symbol of the deep divide not just among the nations politicians but society as well security forces set up these barricades after supporters of the mainly sectarian parties attacked the anti-establishment protesters the barriers make it harder to access the square but they do little to bridge differences indications
6:17 pm
are this is only the start of what is likely to be a prolonged crisis. in the news ahead. a new law or treaty is on hold the route inside montenegro's parliament. and russia hits back at the border agency following its olympic bad pizza we'll have all the day tiles. protest as of march through new delhi again to protest against india's new citizenship law which critics say is a muslim but a war symbolic and chanted slogans calling prime minister narendra modi's government a dictatorship 25 people have died in violence since the legislation was passed 3 weeks ago and at least 1500 have been arrest i do 98 you're my. innocent brothers and sisters who are locked up immediately released along with that these
6:18 pm
play clues like the citizenship. and the national register of citizens need to be immediately withdraw. elizabeth cohen was among the protesters and sent this report . police to detaining any protesters who come to her for their house here in the capital new delhi they've imposed a ban on public gatherings no more than 4 people are allowed to gather there detaining anyone who comes even if they come on their own they're also taking place elsewhere in new delhi and the cities. in the south and in. the chiefly the citizenship noise cost and rights groups say police on to allow people to protest peacefully and when protests do take place they're being broken up with indiscriminate and excessive. protests to say they will continue until at least until the supreme court hears petitions against the citizenship next month.
6:19 pm
protesters in algeria back on the streets for the 45th friday in a road. it's the 1st round of demonstrations after the death of the army chief guide sala protesters have also been rejecting the newly elected president of their mudgett to burn they want a complete change in government at a calling for anyone linked to the previous government to step down but extreme weather hit every populated continent this year bringing death displacement and enormous financial costs the british charity christian i looked at $15.00 disasters that each cause damage worth at least a $1000000000.00 now the disaster with the highest death toll was in india where flooding between june and october killed 1900 people cycle and it died which devastated zimbabwe mozambique and balawi in march killed $1300.00 the biggest
6:20 pm
damage bill was $25000000000.00 that was from wildfires that ravaged the u.s. state of california throughout october and november while typhoons facts i and her gave us cost japan at least 20000000000 dollars catherine crier wrote the christian i report she joins us from barry said edmonds in the u.k. it's nice of you to be with us this is something you hear a lot yes there are these extreme events yes there are these natural disasters but there are local factors at play and not necessarily linked to a global shift in climate what do you cite to that. it's good afternoon for both festivals i think the important thing is that disasters happens a sweep seen over many many years the question is really how much of the contribution that human induced climate change is causing and there are new areas of studies that look that are trying to attribute how much of an impact is caused by climate change and so for instance
6:21 pm
a study done by the world by the retribution group found that the struck. which hit texas was made the extent that the extremity of the rainfall that was made $2.00 times more likely to happen. that change yes of course why are we saying this we're also saying what is a very uneven response to dealing with climate change if you take the united states and president from for instance pulling out of the paris accords we're now hearing from different countries saying the well we have our own economic interests to to focus on here is the problem in getting a uniform global response that each country contributes to. well i've just come back from the climate u.n. climate talks mature it and certainly there is a real need in 2020 for all countries to come forward with enhanced and bishan this report showing that the impacts of climate change that we're seeing with just one degree of average warming but the pledges that people of that the countries
6:22 pm
a put forward so far under the paris agreement amount to 3 degrees of warming and the kinds of impacts that we would see it that would just be just beyond human imagination but beyond human experience i think one of the things that this report shows very clearly though is that the cost get anomic costs that he talks about in your introduction the economic costs in countries that have ensured insurance against these losses and as you rightly pointed out the real human cost are in the countries that are very that are a fellow up to balad level that don't have the resilience but in the countries that don't have the resources to help people build their resilience to to these a climate impacts as they increase and given the costs that you're looking at here and that these costs increase 8 years receive a more or more visits stream where the incidents do you reach a tipping point where the cost of dealing with the impact of these events versus
6:23 pm
the cost of doing very little in terms of the overall approach to climate change starts to drop when you start losing more than you guys. well i think the stern review that was of report that came out about 15 years ago on the costs in the benefits of climate action but at best interest already acting on climate change to reduce emissions is a lot cheaper economically and socially and in the human costs than waiting for climate impacts to happen and trying to deal with them. each year we've seen one year being hotter than the next we're seeing as you've outlined in this report we're seeing the the impact of these extreme events so what does 2020 potentially look like given what we've already seen in 29 thing. well it's hard to predict exactly and i'm certainly not a climate scientists i wouldn't want to be making any specific. predictions on what
6:24 pm
might come in 2020. more on the policy side and i think $20.00 to $20.00 will be a crucial year the united kingdom is hosting the un climate negotiations at the end of the year and there is a mandate we didn't get a stronger band-aid as we wanted from the madrid conference but there is a mandate that countries come a what do their homework and come back with stronger climate action pledges to bring to the world within 2020 now what we need that to do is to add up to minimising the climate harm as much as possible and that does require the countries particularly the u.s. europe you know other big historical emitters to really step up and state after. katherine graham has been good to have you on the program thank you again for giving us a town accent thank you very much well firefighters in australia are trying to limit the spread of bush far as before another heat wave that's expected this well yeah and nearly 1300 personnel in the state of new south wales are doing containment work hoping to reduce the amount of fuel in bushland 70 fires are
6:25 pm
burning across the state with about half still out of control weeks of fires in australia have killed 9 people and destroyed at least a 1000 properties. israel's leader benjamin netanyahu was thank members of his liquid party for giving him a resoundingly victory in a leadership contest rival gideon hope to convince the party that it was time to change what they stuck with despite his indictment for corruption the reports from west jerusalem. for the 1st time in 5 years likud members had the chance to elect someone other than benjamin netanyahu as their leader on thursday they chose him again solidifying his nickname as the magician because of his ability to pull off victory after victory netanyahu campaigned heavily to beat his challenger former interior and education minister gideon sar so there's no need to this is the time to unite to bring a sweeping victory to the liquid and the rights of the knesset elections most of
6:26 pm
the people support the right and most of the people support me to lead a government but the final decision in the primaries the final and sweeping primaries decision was a huge expression of trust in my way and alway even though netanyahu is the 1st sitting prime minister to be indicted on corruption charges his popularity has remained steady among his right wing base a feeling. sorry pics of sitting on the bench and not trying to do anything active in in the public fields is wrong i prefer people who take action. source pitch to voters is that netanyahu failed to form a government twice why would he be able to reach a different outcome a 3rd time he warned maintaining the status quo could mean likud loses power in national elections in march. sars supporters cited concerns over the corruption
6:27 pm
charges trailing netanyahu charges he calls a politically motivated witchhunt the sar camp has also alleged elect. meddling and voter intimidation but there's a political decay in the democracy from within the party and generally in the newsroom israel is in the midst 'd of an unprecedented political crisis netanyahu has until january 1st to ask the knesset to grant him immunity he'll need a 61 majority vote he was unable to get that same number of seats to form a government in the last 2 elections and on tuesday the supreme court is expected to rule if an indicted sitting prime minister is allowed to form a government natasha going to al-jazeera west jerusalem. there's much more to tell me the news out of. calling for

6:33 pm
any of the syrian refugees to all the on the comps are also fooled so they are mostly in the open setting up make shift comes you know depending on turkish charities giving them warm food but they do not have proper sanitation or water or any other amenities we have a set up but come david swanson is the united nations regional spokesman for the syrian crisis he says more people are still making their way towards the border even though they may not get across. turkey has in the past and continues to be an incredibly generous host to the syrian refugees after almost 9 years of conflict hosting more than 3000000 people and do we continue to hope that the situation will improve at the moment right now the vast majority of the people being displaced in the area are moving northward are in northern it live and to urban areas.
6:34 pm
close to the turkish border if the figures have actually been increasing as we speak right now the figure that we now have is more than 200 or 243000 people women children and men have been displaced between the 1st of december and the 25th of december ok up words of 80 percent of this population group are women and children now this comes on top of the displacement figures that we had from the end of april to the end of august where more than 400000 people have been displaced so what we have is a displacement crisis on top of another displacement crisis this area is home to scurry 4000000 people there 4000000 people in this area and more than half of them are i.d.p.'s themselves through these in yemen so they filed

6:37 pm
believe that it's but they're both interest and swore so. if no international pressure on both sides they place this walker and in a few weeks but as long as there are a lot of pressure are there will be that especially as separately to see there has numerous reasons that this work up a lot more than we expected the plan is to get the 2. warring sides together for a new tool in the hope 2020 will be the year they finally accept what the u.n. has been saying for years that there is no military solution to the conflict in yemen. victoria gate and the al-jazeera free of america's biggest rivals have started joint naval exercises near the gulf iran is hosting 4 days of warship drills with china and russia in the gulf of oman it's the entry point to the strait of hormuz which carries much of the world's oil imports iran denies involvement in recent attacks on gulf oil tankers unmissable the fact that we are now hosting

russia and china means that our relations have reached a significant point and god willing it will have global outputs and its message is peace and friendship in the light of unitary and responsible collective corporation . on way of business search fellow at the rajaratnam school of international studies in singapore he says the drills aren't as significant as they may appear. in this case i think we shouldn't set our expectations too high this is really more a case of window dressing where 3 midis are coming together to put on the shore for 40 minutes. mind you are in the previous iteration of how this exercise will support the arc of what's for ski for spare attendees beginning on it's only for design on tuesday and so if whittle it down to 4 days clearly into operability issues between different military systems the iranians are buying more chinese and
6:39 pm
russian that's holmes but. sources will tell you that there are inherent limitations of integrating new skippable he's right now is just going to be a piecemeal exercise for $48.00 it's a case of military signaling to the front an institution nothing more but i think we should see what can happen in 2020 whether there are more exercises and more integration and cooperation between us these. to pat is sending a warship and record since aircraft of the gulf to protect its oil imports the deployment follows last week's visit to tokyo by iran's president 90 percent of japan's crude oil imports from gulf arab countries iran denies links to several recent attacks on or tankas in the region or jeff kingston is a professor of asian studies at temple university in tokyo he says to parents prime minister shinzo avi is trying to balance various interests he said in an awkward position he's trying to thread the needle he's got basically 3 audiences he's
6:40 pm
dressy one is the trump administration that asked to join the coalition the other is president rouhani of iran is keen to maintain good relations and the 3rd audience is domestic abbie's keen to revise the constitution and remove the pacifist article so. calling this intelligence gathering not joining the u.s. coalition is meant to placate trump you know to avoid the accusation of being a free rider but not undermine iranian relations and not cause domestic backlash because there's deep money at the security alliance with the united states and only about 3537 percent of people support the dispatch of the vessels to the mideast clearly about japan and skin in the game last june when are they was
6:41 pm
just being tehran the recent attack on a japanese owned vessel so there is clearly japanese interests involved but they don't want to clash they want to avoid that because clearly the priority for abbay in this next diet session in 2020 is to get his fellow politicians to endorse revision of the past constitution. a former. rebel leader and presidential candidate could face life in prison after being accused of planning a coup. abandoned a plane trip home when a warrant was issued for his arrest on monday the public prosecution says they captured or discussing the plot they also allege he was gathering weapons but his lawyer says the recording is old and incomplete. some people close to sorel did not hesitate to discredit the institutions in place these acts far from being isolated were part of a conspiracy which were to lead
