8:09 am
bad from being used as a weapon the coalition says it only uses phosphorus in permitted ways during battle for example to create a smoke screen of a human rights watch has voiced concerns they say the substance poses a high risk to civilians of the leading force fighting islamic state on the ground all the kurds they're the ones being armed by the american government and washington support for the kurdish fighters irritates its long term ally turkey caleb maupin reports on how the u.s. has tried to get around this problem. turkey was furious when it found out that the united states their longtime ally and nato partner was going into rock without them . we do not need terrorist organizations like the p y d n y p g and the rock operation let us work together to wipe out. america the coalition and turkey can join hands and turned into a graveyard for dash as the united states is aligned with two bitter enemies in

syria the turkish government and the kurdish fighters it's got a tricky bit of maneuvering to do secretary of defense mattis says that the united states will eventually take back the weapons it's now supplying to the kurds after the defeat of isis and this is turning into no small matter at this point the united states is shipping in heavy machine guns mortars other small arms and even some armored vehicles it's totaling over one hundred million dollars worth of war toys a large portion of which are going to the kurds when it's all finished some five hundred u.s. military personnel will have the task of collecting it all in an area that's almost the size of pennsylvania maybe they'll knock on doors and say hey you know those weapons we let you yeah you're finished with them right and who knows what answer they might get the united states has promised to monitor the area and send out a monthly report that will include photographs this sounds like a great idea as the usa has already lost track of billions of dollars worth of
8:11 am
weapons they sent to iraq and some of those weapons have ended up in the hands of terrorists there i think mattis made that promise in newt's letter which presumably was going to bend to old knowing very well that it probably would not be believed and very well would not be carried oh but you made it trying to locate the the u.s. is supplying the weapons for the the u.s. as a whole and. goals which seems to be to break a part of syria to load the u.s. to dominate a separate part of syria basically they want to go before you go to syria. and in violation of syria and stubborn integrity a country is torn apart by civil war with different factions vying for power as civilians flee in chaos the pentagon has a brilliant idea sending. more weapons just so long as they promise to give them back up and archie new york. russia's defense ministry has reached

a video showing missiles being launched from warships on a submarine in the mediterranean sea targeting islamic state positions in syria. russian intelligence is tracking eisel fighters who've been trying to escape their stronghold iraq through the so-called southern corridor or that's pretty much their only way out as the city has been surrounded by u.s. led coalition forces for quite some time now for what we understand the fighters have been trying to go from to palmira the hamas profits and that's where they've been targeted in the latest series of air strikes from russia now as i still continue to lose ground a rocket this is certainly not the first time we've heard terrorists managed to escape the city in fact there have been reports last month of the kurds one of the main forces fighting isis opening up a chord or allowing the terrorists to leave the city of raka the kurds have the
8:13 am
night despite the ministry of defense and russia have confirmed seeing the movement of large eisel convoy moving from towards palmira these latest images released it shows six cruise missiles being launched from two warships and a submarine currently located in the mediterranean and the strikes managed to destroy and i saw a command center and several i saw weapons stockpiles in the provinces while the turkish and israeli forces that are also operating in the area they have been informed about the strikes in advance but nothing is said about communicating with the coalition forces as on monday russia has halted the agreement of military cooperation in syrian air space with a u.s. after they downed a syrian government fighter jet near iraq on sunday. germany's parliament has approved a new law allowing the country's secret services to monitor messaging platform such as what's up critics say the plight of. engines civil liberties it's all over has this report from. the german parliament has adopted this law that would allow
8:14 am
what's up messages or any other messaging service that using crippin to be loved those messages that are sent to be read by the authorities what they do is they intercepted before it sent from one device to another where the encryption takes place. now this is a move that it's been referred to by the interior minister here in germany thomas de amaziah is essential when it comes to the fight against terror we've also heard similar things coming from the. european union summit that's ongoing in brussels at the moment from the e.u. council president donald he said that authorities need access to this type of information if they're to try and stop future terrorist attacks. have also agreed on the need to cooperate close loose the online industry. we are calling on social media companies to do whatever is necessary to prevent further terrorist were to go
8:15 am
on the internet and practice this means developing clear tools to detect and three move such materials automatically but we have heard this in the past if we look back to the united kingdom and the recent horrific terrorist attacks that took place in in manchester and in london we heard from the home secretary rhodes in the u.k. i'm from prime minister to reason may say they needed access to this information if they were to try in foil potential future attacks we want companies to develop tools to identify and remove harmful materials automatically i want to see them report this file contents to the or storage is and block the users who spread it there should be no place for terrorists to hide we need to make sure that organizations like whatsapp and there are plenty of others like that don't. provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other we need to make sure that our intelligence services have the ability to get into situations like
8:16 am
encrypted whatsapp but critics of this move well many what we're seeing here in germany is the green party in particular mounting a resistance to this they want to see held up in the constitutional cold for as long as possible they say that it gives too much power to those that hold the keys to allow them the potential for abuse is. more news coming up just after the short break. when almost seemed wrong why don't we all just don't all. let me. get to shape out this day comes after. and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look

8:18 am
these were severed over doha's support of terrorism let's get more now from our middle east correspondent paula. thanks for joining us paul it's been a few weeks since the blockade of qatar was imposed what exactly are the demands of the gulf states here. while this list of demands comes after the u.s. state department questioned the motives of the gulf states move have a listen to this quote from the u.s. state department. now that it's been more than two weeks since the embargo started we are mystified that the gulf states have not released to the public nor to the qataris the details about the claims that they are making toward. the more the time goes by the more doubt is raised about the actions taken by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. at this point we are left with one simple question were the actions really about their concerns regarding carter's alleged support for terrorism or they about the
8:19 am
long simmering grievances between and among the g.c.c. countries. now the next day the us secretary of state breaks to listen issued a statement saying that a list of such demands has been prepared he added that he hoped that the demands would be reasonable and actionable saying that we understand that this list is being prepared it's being coordinated by the saudis the iraq tease each option is and the bahrainis and we hope that it will be presented to qatar with and will be treated as reasonable and actionable now the list includes thirteen demands in total here are some of them first and foremost to curb all diplomatic ties with iran the list of trade and commerce with iran that complies with the u.s. and international sanctions will be permitted now the two states share the biggest natural gas field so that could be a problem as well at the same time that it calls for the savoring of all time is to terrorist organization the list mentions muslim brotherhood islamic state al qaida
8:20 am
and hizbollah it calls on shutting down al-jazeera and all qatar funded news outlets to terminate to military presence in qatar to any joint military cooperation with turkey that is taking place inside of qatar it also calls for an end to interference in sovereign states internal affairs so in other words to stop all contacts with the political opposition in saudi arabia the u.a.e. egypt and bahrain to hand over all files that detail qatar's prior contacts with and support for these opposition groups it also talks about paying reparations for the loss of life and other losses that have been caused by qatar's. policies now the sum will be determined in coordination with qatar so qatar must also consent to regular order for the next ten years the list says that there needs to be agreement to all demands within ten days or the list becomes invalid now the document does
8:21 am
not specify what the countries will do if qatar refuses to comply so of course if it means to be seen whether qatar will view these demands as either reasonable or actionable or right it does seem a scandal is certainly far from being resolved artie's middle east correspondent paula slater thanks so much. now a woman in the eighty's has won a gender discrimination case against israel's national airline ronnie rabinowitz has been given a seat next to orthodox jewish been a flight to tel aviv where the crew there are supposed to change seats after her neighbor insists that he couldn't sit next to a woman for religious reasons but it spoke to us how she reacted. i spoke with the man. who is this problem with my sitting next to him and he responded to. that it is said. that man the
8:22 am
should sit next to war. that i did not think that was the case. there is no war. that supported me and brought suit. actually the first time israel's national has been involved in this kind of scandal last year and ultra-orthodox passenger broke two of the planes t.v. screens because he thought the in-flight film was what he described as immodest in response to the video. and fortunately it's. six thirty. should you discover that you were seated next to whoever couldn't leave the worst of the release proceed to appear dressed as a congregation in the unlikely event that played
8:23 am
a did you think you remain in your assigned seat simply reach into your. body protection over your head and just scream says this is. now the court's decision was praised by activists really rabinowitz again told us she expects to prevent future cases of discrimination. also i'll hold that there's challenge is for sure will and as a reach. the ruling it will be called for. or any out there a line to resolve this week it could mean. right and. prompt their current. millions of new moderates could set foot on european soil that steps are taken
8:24 am
immediately that warning comes from a top e.u. official ahead of an e.u. summit that's being killed in brussels for us to support them. along you know it is with us that. was. the solution you know africa really more and more maybe that's millions of years because in the next year coming from the region recently. libya is the country from which most african migrants set for set out for europe and the city of subway is one of the key human trafficking hubs the according to reports people are being brought and sold to local slave markets video managed to get a firsthand account of what life is like in the margaret. that. people go to keep people. here maybe more new idea world many people live there looking for the money or how it would be more to.
8:25 am
go to. as you can see on the map there is a where all the main margaret trafficking routes converging to one those hoping to make it to europe then pay drivers to get them to tripoli from there moderates are transported by sea packs by the hundreds on board inflatable boat stinky's and other vessels mostly. for the poor lives journey across the mediterranean some of them get robbed kidnapped and sometimes even murdered in the process now meanwhile in europe there are voices questioning whether those arriving in europe actually fleeing war and famine or just seeking better jobs opportunities are some of the ngos rescue margaret said about reagan being accused of encouraging human traffickers earlier i spoke to joel millman senior press officer at the international organization for migration about the reasons fueling migration and the role in jos play in the crisis. there's been a certain argument rising especially from the sort of center right political spectrum about the difference between moderates and asylum seekers in particular
8:26 am
they're saying that many of these people coming economic migrants rather than people who are victims of war does not all going to hold any moves at c. you it's all. well certainly true and we're not we're not going to be we were in a critical about this two years ago the vast majority of migrants on this particular route through tripoli were or were distressed migrants where they were people fleeing war the largest two countries two years ago were syria and eritrea the syria the syrian track it moved almost entirely in turkey and into greece so the numbers are extremely small i mean forty thousand two years ago and this year are just over a thousand so we know those migrants are coming much through this drought anymore eritrea has also fallen off tremendously so it's somalia and sudan there is a train of thought saying that the volunteers that are doing this that are rescuing these people and moving them on words that are actually supporting trafficking by encouraging people to make this journey to to play into the hands of traffickers all these people the n.g.o.s perhaps partly to blame for
8:27 am
a vicious cycle of traffickers and smugglers making profit from people suffering by discount that argument completely i was a reporter covering migration for almost thirty years and i've heard that argument lie d.c.l. you lawyers and church people i think the vicious cycle is the hunger of the war the conditions of some of these countries and also the demand for their labor in the in the in the rich countries i mean there is no question that you can you could just as easily ask is the housewife part of that chain or is the employer part of that chain and the answer is yes of course they are so they're no more part of a vicious cycle than the than the rest of us who profit from this letter but i will u.k. briggs and stratton as you buckle under pressure from the e.u. meckstroth even national sophie and.
8:28 am
kids. does she don't consume don't tell you that in talking to them jake is dealing with the single and almost all in that equal distances muslims are what he calls this tells me. don't. tell him to will move to those old wooden missiles this is also the us it all took the sitting on.
