1:02 pm
developments in kuta from beirut in neighboring lebanon for us good to see you know what else can you tell us about what is being touted as the final evacuation deal for duma. well we still have to be careful with our reporting because this information is coming we syrian state television some are t.v. and they say that the regime in fact has refused to deal with the dominant rebel group which is known as gestural islam and that an exchange of civilians that have been incarcerated by jason islam these. rebels would be let go to italy but the activists on the ground are still not confirming this in fact some of them that i managed to speak to continue to state say that the rebels of some the other group ramón have in fact left dumas but not to general islam and what general islam which i repeat is the dominant group in the long want is to be is to have control is to continue to have control of the duma as promised to them in
1:03 pm
a stand on stand by russia so that struggle is still on we haven't heard the final word from the dominant rebel group in the last hour the regime though now says that they in fact have reached a deal so we still have to wait it out of it and see of the final word as to what the dominant rebel group there finally says and in the meantime and show you've been speaking to your sources on the ground what is the situation for civilians there right now. well it's horrifying we're hearing all sorts of reports we're hearing that a lot of the civilians who wanted to leave could not leave because. they're afraid of the regime but many of them at this stage want to leave they feel that there is absolutely no option left in the rebels are not letting them go about a few days ago i spoke to people on the ground who were rushing out and the rebels on the ground confirmed to me that about five hundred people from duma had left though this is a very significant number when you consider how hundreds and thousands of me bill
1:04 pm
and do our part still that dumas i mean has hundreds of thousands of civilians still caught up between the rebels and the regime and the situations they live in are a pretty horrifying situation is clearly in flux right now as you point out and child but what would it mean for the conflict if the syrian army does manage to retake the city what it means a clear victory for assad that it means the international community in a sense has been unable to do anything at all for the. for these people who've been caught up in this situation for quite a long time the siege has been on since two thousand and thirteen everybody knew this is going to happen assad has used the same tactics sea air warfare and then intensive bombardment ground offensive to retake well the level the same things happened after this is all were which is expected to happen soon then that would
1:05 pm
mean that assad basically has all of the territory back except for some on plates in how much better and then he's going to go for them and perhaps even if lead which has turkish forces on the ground so this is a victory then in that sense for assad but also perhaps a learning lesson for the international community as to what they did wrong this is time in the city and warm her spine and in beirut thanks for your analysis. israel is rejecting calls for an inquiry into the killing of at least fifteen palestinians on friday israel's military opened fire off a palestinian demonstration turned violent at israel's border with gaza here opinion and in amnesty international have joined the un in calling for an independent investigation into friday's bloodshed united states reportedly rejected such a move put forward the u.n. security council we want israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu says soldiers acted appropriately to protect the country security oh god hundreds

shot by israeli forces as the government to cute swathes of palestinian land to create the state of israel israel's military released these images showing palestinians throwing stones at the border and friday they claim they don't like targeted instigators they blame the bloodshed and hamas which controls the gaza strip. what we've seen is a violent riot in its clearest form the hamas terrorist organization. i've sent that people to the border with israel and gaza in order to camouflage that true intentions of terror but as so often one person's terrorist is another's freedom fighter and those remaining in the demonstrators camps say they are determined. not a war to hit with a hope that the old will die out and the young will forget but the young are here they want to go back to the lands of the five it is only grandfather. the young want to go back they have more ambition than their elders of well thought of.
