9:02 pm
a tanker waiting in that traffic jam along with 300 other vessels steps are being taken to guarantee supplies for hospitals bakeries and water stations yemen and lebanon are considering. rationing fuel so as can all authorities are waiting for more tug boats to help free that ship on saturday they said they successfully dug out the stern beacon all as one of the world's most important shipping lanes with trade valued at more than $9000000000.00 every day iran khan reports. 6 days all in the fear is that you have the givens blocking this who is canal will lead to global shortages of all gas and goods and it's not just what's on the vessel itself although that's significant given it's one of the largest container ships in the world but it's what's on the other $300.00 or so vessels treading water at the entrance and exits of the canal as well as those stuck in the middle syria's already feeling the pinch the authorities announced fuel rationing as supplies from iran are stuck the news is coming out of syria is deeply deeply worrying the
9:03 pm
country was already heating crisis point with the economic collapse hitting syria and the daily lives of syrians and now these delays to fuel shipments will make an really bad situation worse. and his tankers q oil prices are rising the blockage is another blow to global trade already disrupted by cope with 19 around about 70 percent of the world's oil trade goes through the suez canal and it can't any any ship has the choice of taking the longer route round the south of africa takes around 2 weeks longer obviously cost more because of the additional i'm shipping cost so ships are having to make their decision do they whites are in that queue of $300.00 or do they take need a longer trip there are 2 main strategies in play to dislodge the ever given they are currently using tug boats to push and widen the canal by using diggers on land
9:04 pm
at the stern end of the vessel that seems to be working the 2nd is lightening the load by removing containers that's seen. it's time consuming dangerous and untested either way this has never happened in the history of shipping before imran khan was there let's discuss this with gerry northwood who's the chairman of the risk management and security company matthews joining us from me on stuff that's in hampshire in the u.k. thanks for speaking to us on al-jazeera let's look at the method of lightning the load and that's what the egyptian president has reportedly ordered preparations for authorities to do what would such an operation involve but it's not a good idea i think to think of all contingencies and possibilities k.t. you need to get a fairly large truck crane down float it down on a barge i understand there may already been moves afoot to do that and then also if
9:05 pm
you have some facilities in place for taking the containers and removing them somewhere else so it's quite a big operation so what are the challenges associated with this operation i mean what do what do they need to do to minimize damage if any damage at all why i think of the brain think about here it's you know exactly where you want to get the containers off i mean if this is about lightning the the load around the bow area free that they may just be a relatively small section of the best that 'd needs to be cleared they may need to think about doing it on both sides it depends on the size of the crane that obviously one size one site. may not be or not. and then the 2nd thing is having the capacity to shift all the containers they're taking off to put them somewhere else whether that's back in one of the ports like what so eat or have an arrangement to stack them up on the bank now right and how long would this
9:06 pm
operation take. that's a very good question. you know that this is all about resource and and the amount they need to get off the cell was not a better idea but it could take some while ok now officials are saying that so far some progress has been made the rudder was released that also now there are about 14 tug boats joining the efforts to be able to dislodge that ship but. well of parties be continuing with this strategy or have they in your opinion given up on it and now they're looking to lighten the load i think what we're hearing is that they are they're hoping that the high water to night will 'd be another opportunity to get the best law so a continued program of dredging and using the tugs makes a great deal of the sense but that really hasn't worked yet it's had some some benefit and it's made it they've managed to create
9:07 pm
a stir and that's good but they do need to be thinking about the contingency and it will take time to get the appropriate you know machinery in place in terms of cranes symbology aids if they're going to have this if they're going to start removing the cargo in order to try and reduce the draft of the vessel have you ever seen anything like this before i mean how would you describe the situation and what's transpired over the past 6 days i think we'll find this is a resume unique situation i mean the canal has been closed in the past it's been close a very lengthy periods during the arab is ready wallace but 1st time for quite a long while we've had this kind of interruptions traffic so it's pretty having a very significant impact on on the supply chain across the across the globe and so the sooner we can get this resolved you know the better and people get back to normal business carrying or thank you so much for speaking to us from me on stone thank you thank you. syrian kurdish forces in control of the north east have
9:08 pm
launched a sweeping n.c.i. security operation they've arrested more than 30 people at the whole camp many if it 62000 residents are foreigners who are believed to have ties to ice so there have been dozens of murders and on the whole of the sear the operation at the camp is expected to take around 10 days. well the u.n. special envoy to syria has told al-jazeera there are worrying signs the group is trying to gather strength in the deserts the warning comes as the u.s. secretary of state anthony blinken is set to meet other foreign ministers to discuss what washington calls the enduring defeat of the armed group our diplomatic editor james bays reports from the united nations. they create their own defacto state. of parts of syria and iraq and in the most brutal way justifying their actions with their own interpretation of islam. 2 years ago

9:10 pm
as increased the harsh activity is in the desert and in certain areas of syria and i have never before as you know members of the security council you need a collaborative effort you're fired the terrorists are still active in syria i mean . the americans are going to be. on top of this there's another problem related to isolate the world is not confronting there are thousands of prisoners some of them foreign fighters but mainly women and children being held in camps in northeast syria in the largest camp i'll hold there are nearly 30000 children the conditions a grim they risk being alienated and further radicalized james pays out his era at the united nations more want has had a policy analysis at their absence or for research and policy studies he says the armed groups will continue to be a threat until the underlying ideologies are addressed. it started as
9:11 pm
a war against al qaida and then against isis and probably in the coming years but going to see. a new organization with a different name all of these organizations actually have always been consistent in the sense that. the very the causes which have led to the images in the past this must be that way if we really want to defeat them once and for all and and as long as these what causes are not there to with i think we are going to keep seeing them coming back and time and again so now i'm really not surprised that isin is making a comeback in syria and in iraq we have seen a rise out where an increase in the activities of ice in india and what countries the united states as we all know has declared victory against isis in 2019 it has declared lifted it is a cut into i mean before that you really need to deal with the with the root causes
9:12 pm
which is leading in fact to that lies with ice and of al qaida and like minded organizations you need to deal with the ideology we need you need to deal actually which will with with the with the idea and with the circumstances which are leading i mean to these organizations coming back. a major operation is underway to rescue survivors of a deadly attack in palma in mozambique an armed group has been laying siege to the town since wednesday about 200 people took shelter in a hotel mozambique's defense and security spokesman says that 9 of them were killed in an ambush when they tried to leave sara hiero taz the latest. survivors from the siege in palma arrived in the port city of pemba just along the coast since wednesday when an armed group launched its attack kampala communications have been down and many families are still waiting to hear what's happened to their loved ones are you going to see it the situation of losing someone it's hard he

9:25 pm
deaths that happen in a determined period of time to the same period of time in the following year and see what the did with the excesses and since this has happened during a pandemic it's highly likely that these deaths were due to the pandemic so that is basically it now here in brazil the situation is that we still have the hospital cut prices we're still in lockdown in certain parts of the country and just so you have an idea of how serious it is like 4 out of 10 people that have been dying recently have been have not been able to get to a nice e.u. unit so they're basically dying in line. chiller has launched its strict coronavirus locked on yet to curb arising cases more than 80 percent of the population is under mandatory isolation the president says it's necessary to use pressure on the health care system about 40 percent of the population has been
