1:03 am
referendum could be held by ross, which is plan september. so, ukraine's had this, this deadline of doing something in, in the region by september. so it does seem to all fall in line with that. and certainly the scale of what we're seeing is much larger than the ukraine, i think, is all the see, make great use of the western weapon donations subject to the high mars. and the m l r. s. rocket systems to disrupt the russians we've. we've seen that going on, intensified in the region over the last few days. they've also been husbanding a certain amount of the equipment they've been donated in limited amount of pictures we seen today. show some of the western supplied on personnel car is being used in what appears to be quite a decent combined arms attacked by ukraine. so using tanks, infantry across and heavy got to tillery altogether to achieve lisa limited breakthrough in the rushing front. as far as you understand it now, obviously driven, i'm sued like everything and warfare. ultimately it's extension of this glens,

but the pity sense that there's a need for an operation and the possibility of succeeding in something. ang her said that this time as military analyst at justin crump speaking to us earlier or in iraq, tensions are soaring on that a political crisis that has left the country without a government since elections last october. at least 15 people were killed after supporters of the influential shiite cleric, mach tata. al sutter stormed the government palace after he announced he was quitting politics. ah, supporters of finance, shia cleric mcdonough, it's under reach. but does heavy fortify green's own? in india, whom do ministries and embassies the soon over and the government balice and i, i thought that out of a our revolution is so lena. rocky was it. it's not southwest, don't. this isn't
1:05 am
a rocky revolution with any of the iraq. it should be returned to people with anita up. why yamaha? i let what's your plan? oh, our demands are to dissolve parliament and to hold the corrupt to account and we say to saddler, we will sacrifice for you victory's aus on my son, alina. while lou inside, many was seen lounging in meeting rooms, used by iraqi heads of state and cooling off in a swimming pool in the garden, they were soon driven out by security forces using deal gas and gunshots. the un mission to iraq, as well as the united states, called on all sides for restraint. the plan up of violence follows months of political deadlock in iraq looked at those others movement as of this block was the biggest winner in october's election. but he failed to form
1:06 am
a government that excluded his. she or i was close to her on law moral myself. he would do his lawmakers from parliament in june. what was that while on my aunt buddy and his followers have since been stating a sitting outside the parliament calling for fresh elections? well, this isn't the 1st time the influential garrick has withdrawn from politics. you thought to know for the cotton deadlock in iraq appears hotter to resolve than in the past. and i'm very pleased to welcome daniel sir. we're a professor at the johns hopkins school of advanced international studies. i'm chaotic scenes in baghdad. can you tell us more about what has led up to this unrest? election results to make a long story short of mac does southern believe city one, the elections in the sense that he be arrival she a group, but he was unable to form
1:07 am
a government and he withdrew his members from parliament. you know, boy cutting parliament is never a great idea because in new members are appointed in, in they form a government without you and that's what he's trying to prevent. and he thought her husband, a long time major player in iraq's political scene. but it has been more than 10 months since elections. so what is his motive for leaving politics now at this point? i think he's trying to show that he's indispensable. i'm not sure he's leaving politics at all. i think what he's doing is rousing his supporters to make enough trouble that new elections are called and he tells a little bit more context about why it has been so difficult to form a government in this period. this a splintering of political groups in iraq and as i said,
1:08 am

1:09 am
to me, continue in power because he's friendly united states. they probably can't get better than him out of either a different coalition or new elections. so looking ahead, do you think that is what could end this crisis fresh elections? it's entirely possible that they will go to new elections. that would be frustrating. i think for a lot of the rockies, iraq is have wanted an effective government. they've wanted the government committed to clean government committed to providing services, and they're not getting. all right, we're gonna have to leave it there. but daniel sir, we're professor at johns hopkins. thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us on d. w. news we're going to bring you up to speed now with some of the other story

1:14 am
unfortunately they just, you know, took some time off. i thought, you know, do we have enough time today to fix this? and the answer is no. so they scrubbed when i worked for nasa, i probably tried to see more shuttle launches than i actually saw. and so this isn't unusual. and i actually was giving people 5050 odds today that they would actually launched in that something like this would not happen. unfortunately, what happened today. they admitted that, yeah, you know, we could have tested this last time. we did a test, but the last time they did a test, something went wrong as well. we're good enough with that. so you know, this is not unexpected. it's disappointing. but you know, again, as they say, it's better to be safe than sorry. as keith cowan speaking to us earlier, just before we go, let's get a reminder of the top stories we're following for you. ukraine says it has launched, it's long anticipated attempt to retake the southern region of her son. moscow says it is warding offenses and inflicting heavy casualties and deadly
