10:10 pm
celebrate the last military parade in washington took place in june one thousand nine hundred one to all of the veterans of the first gulf war back then eight thousand soldiers from operation desert storm marched through the capital with two hundred thousand people looking on americans visiting the world war two memorial in washington today had mixed feelings about holding a parade i think is totally nonsensical is this we should be using that money for much more honorable purposes like helping people who are poor well i hate to say the fact that that honor in our troops in our nation has to be postponed we should be able do that every year and president trump expressed his desire for a major military parade after a visit to paris last year rather than holding his own parade trump said today he plans to attend another one in france instead. let's turn now to the conflict in syria on the fate of a volunteer organization that has saved thousands of lives during the recent years
10:11 pm
of bloodshed white helmets as they are know have been operating in rebel held territories for several years rescuing victims of the fighting and government asterix syria's president bashar al assad describes them as western sponsored propaganda tools to help terrorists as the russian backed military gradually defeated rebel forces the danger confronting the white helmets increased with government troops approaching dozens of them and their families in the areas of daraa and were evacuated to the golan heights by israeli troops from that they were taken to jordan canada britain and germany have agreed to take the main t.w. simon young has been speaking with for ok i'll have to be one of the white helmets cofounders who told him its members didn't want to leave. first of all i would like to say that. we asked for support to protect those volunteers and their families inside syria we didn't aim at getting anyone outside but because the international
10:12 pm
community failed to ensure protection of civilians inside syria and particularly for the humanitarian workers and the white helmets the last resort for for those volunteers were to to escape through the occupied golan heights to short and then have resettlement in other countries we stack the german government and all our friends who support the despotic process and we believe that our colleagues who will arrive here they will be active in their new communities carrying their skills and qualifications they will work to serve civilians there as they did in syria who will do the important work of rescuing civilians in syria if these people have left the country. and. we remain committed to work force the syrian people. they are and we are aware and whenever we have access to
10:13 pm
support them the group of volunteers who will evacuate with their families represent just a small percentage. around one hundred volunteer and their families but we still have more than three thousand volunteers in north of syria who continue their work as usual. the regime says that the white helmets have connections to foreign powers and indeed to jihad these what's your answers over. i would say that the all these narratives are contradicting each other's sometimes they say that the white house do not exist at all these are just fabricated films and sometimes they say those are affiliated with western intelligence and some sun times that they say they are affiliated with jihadist and all these stories contradict with each other's the true story that the white images of the people and working for the people and their success and providing assistance to the people and
10:14 pm
supporting the civil society it challenges the narrative that is proposed by the regime and its allies that are to say that there are no good no good people left in syria and there is north of a society in syria and the syrians are not able to walk by themselves to help themselves it's only the dictatorial regime of the extremists this is our own narrative and for this reason they try to throw these fake accusations on a personal level you must have seen some terrible things during this war in syria. could you describe what motivated you to join the white helmets in the first place . i of course i faced personal challenges and big risks but it's it's just like all other syrians and all other. victims in syria. i would say that i started
10:15 pm
this work and because it's my duty you don't need a motivation to work for your country or to try to rescue your neighbor or your additive or your friend it's it comes from values and humanitarian principles when you hear from my baby or. whoever asking for help it's our duty to do that and we can't abandon our people as long as we can do something to help it's our responsibility and we will keep doing this for today and. i was white helmets co-founder for ok i'll have be speaking with you don't lose simon you know . no court in russia has moved two teenagers accused of extremism from jail to house arrest after hundreds of people protested demanding their release eighteen year old patrick over and nineteen year old marie dubovik accused of plotting to overthrow the government despite claims they were egged on by undercover police
