10:02 am
not only the presence in northern iraq but the link between the syrian kurdish functional group. in syria basically the idea of the sofa ration by the turkish military it is actually to cut the logistics line between the p.k. k. and the y. p.g. in syria when we look at the route one will look at the areas that have been subject to turkish military operation this week and in the previous days it talked of the targets the logistic routes between between. iraq and the wife in syria and the operation is joint the conducted by the turkish military and the turkish intelligence according to the information given by the defense ministry. turkish military the normally didn't have any course forward operational sortie but in the last couple of years they're also writes for this and they're working jointly with the turkish military and. this time the operation and
10:03 am
today's operation is different because the land for ground forces are in walled as well accompanied by the f. 16 s hobbit surface and other firing vehicles turkish commandos are in the field trying to eliminate the targets over there and some news reports so just now at these 150 picket targets including demolition deports and some critical places buildings have been destroyed during this operation today when you look at the statements by the turkish military and the turkish intelligence they say that these are pinpoint operations it doesn't have that much they target some specific places. that's why they're trying to avoid in humanitarian casualty but what we have learnt so far is that the commander of the turkish ground forces are expected to go at these 17 kilometers this inside and along with the present turkish military bases in iraq turkey is planning to establish
10:04 am
a few more bases in the areas that it has conducted operation and just one thing to that like to underline the area as a special turkish military operation was help yesterday these were on their control neither by controlled by the carriage in baghdad. thanks for that cynical still there live from istanbul with the turkish side let's bring in some full team who is in baghdad so how is the iraqi government responding. well so far it has not responded and that perhaps in itself is quite telling we haven't had any official statements come out neither from the iraqi government here in baghdad nor from kurdish authorities in iraqi kurdistan and that silence many are suspecting that either there was some kind of coordination or information that was received before these attacks took place or that perhaps they were simply
10:05 am
just a waiting to get a response from the authorities now on sunday the iraqi government did issue a condemnation of the earlier air strikes which occurred calling them a provocative behavior but in the same statement there was also a mention that iraq would be cooperating with turkey to secure the border areas and this statement specifically is one where some people suspect that there may be some kind of at least information sharing on the ongoing attacks now so far the information we're getting from the ground is very limited because these attacks and strikes are happening in very remote mountainous areas so we do not have any information at the moment about specifically what happened and if there were any casualties also on the civilian side which has happened in the past but we did speak to one source on the ground who works for the kurdish authorities and what he mentioned is that there is involvement both from the turkish side as well as from the iranian side of it piers to be some kind of cooperation of the iranian side
10:06 am
contributing introduced artillery fire and there is some suspicion that perhaps part of the goal here is not only to strike k.k. targets inside iraq but also to create a military corridor through iraq on the route to syria but it is still quite early in the stage of these operations and we're still waiting for 4 reports to come out from the iraqi government as well as kurdish authorities and we'll be bringing you more on that as we get it so we will think that it's a full team for now thank you. and he says 20 of its soldiers have been killed in fighting with chinese troops along the disputed border it happened in the golan valley region and have a laser light on monday night tension has been rising for weeks is the 1st time in decades that deaths have been reported during a standoff between the 2 countries salah ballasts reports in the remote twistin himalayas there is little evidence of what lead to indian and chinese so jews in

sides. to the koreas now where a war of words is further escalating tension between the 2 nations north korea has warned it will redeploy troops near the border and resume military exercises along frontline areas blames the south of bad behavior and justified destroying and into korean liaison office on tuesday seoul says it will no longer accept unreasonable behavior. communal tricky. tours only means we express strong regret towards the north korean general staff of the korean people's army announcement that it will deploy military to k. song and diamond mountain whose arch your north korea's announcement as an act that turns the clock back to before the june 15th 2000 declination in violation of south korean people's property rights north korea will have to take responsibility and stop any ex that can worsen the situation from abroad has more from part 2 on the south korean side of the border. this is part 2 is about as close as you can get in
10:18 am
south korea to the d.m.z. it's another few kilometers further on from here but it is also one of the crossing points for the main rail links between north and south that gives you an idea of the legacy of the conflict and also hopes of future coexistence hopes that until recently at least had been very much alive and well one of the bridges here was destroyed during the war and has been left to like that but the other bridge was restored and then in a previous rounds of reconciliation they actually reconnected the rail link between north and south it's connected it's ready to roll just add trains the feeling was that the negotiations reconciliations were going so well this time that it was going to possibly lead to regular train services restarting between north and south which would have been something quite historic obviously all of that now seems increasingly far fetched especially as we get this developing war of words it's
10:19 am
really the acrimony of the old we have kim jong she is the increasingly influential and powerful sister of the north korean leader who's become almost the point person when it comes to lobbying insults at the south branding south korea's president been jailed in as brazen and shameless and then return we now have the presidential office the blue house the government of moon j.m. which until now has been very conciliatory trying to keep things on track retaliating in kind it seems talking about her comments being rude and senseless and saying that the south korean government will not tolerate unreasonable words and acts in future robert kelly is a professor of international relations and diplomacy at the sun national university he doesn't believe this is a new or alarming gang. the north koreans have done provocations against south korea for decades literally right so in that sense i mean i don't think people should get carried away nobody should worry about sort of conflict or war or anything like that the north koreans are going to do anything really serious they
10:20 am
know they would lose any kind of a serious conflict so they wouldn't risk that right this is another way for north korea to signal to us to the americans in the south koreans right that that we should come back to the bargaining table and offer something really substantial that they really want is sanctions relief in exchange for something presumably a in the nuclear missile program and that's the sort of deal that everybody sort of dancing around right and i think this is the north koreans way of sort of pushing the south koreans and the americans to come back but again i think you know trump is trump just doesn't is not that interested anymore and moon is very constrained by sanctions i mean that's why this thing is sort of been frozen for year and a half to sort of u.n. level sanctions and there are also sanctions by south korea the south by the united states by japan the countries around north korea this president when jane really wants to engage north korea but he's been very very constrained in what he can do because the letter of the law prevents a lot of south korean engagement and my sense is that he'll go out and give a speech and ask the north koreans to come back the negotiating table he's already done that the south koreans want to get any kind of provocative action but the
10:21 am
facility that was destroyed was inside north korea and there's some other stuff inside north korea too that the south koreans have built if the north koreans choose to demo to demolish that or to occupied or repurpose in some way there's really nothing the north koreans can do about it. the united nations special envoy to syria says he hopes to stop the next round of talks between the country's warring sides by late oldest during his briefing to a virtual session of the un security council to have had a set also detailed the devastating impact this serious economic collapse is having on civilians and diplomatic editor james bass has more from u.n. headquarters in new york. the security council's monthly meeting on syria was dominate sheed by discussion of the deepening economic crisis. the un special envoy pederson telling ambassadors the situation was now very grave the economic crisis is hitting every. regardless of territory from damascus and best
