dziedzic district. very few civilians are left in town and i've been in soldiers. i just transiting through on their way out. behind caribbean is a businessman. volunteer fighter. it's a bittersweet day for him. he was soon meet up with his wife, but after them, the district where he was deployed at the beginning of the war is being returned as a better term to poland told a lot of tales about the situation. we can do everything but the reality. no one in the public knew the real the situation room now have the result that we deserved all of the armenian forces have to evacuate before december 1st, a mere 70 kilometers away celebrations, an atom, a district on the eastern flank of the un clave,
8:09 am
which armenia occupied and considered a buffer zone. i looked it over as among the 60000 a series expelled at the time. from here. i'm lost for words to explain my feelings . it's the best day of my life. the 1st place i want to visit is the fater. it's destroyed now, but he was very nice and we're building a stark contrast to december. mood in the chain here to tens of thousands of azeris were expelled, left, she was the 1st, captured by the armenians and early 1990 s. . and it will be the last one handed back to azerbaijan, and it's all because of this road. the so-called latching corridor that connects armenia to nagorno-karabakh. it will remain open for armenian civilians. and as the russian peacekeepers who are going to guarantee their safe passage, it's a lifeline of the enclave, at least through this road, that the bulk of the russian peacekeepers are deployed and taking up positions
8:10 am
along the corridor. as a budget, as forces would be just a few kilometers away, it worries me and who stayed at home throughout the war. she came to the municipality with her neighbors to ask for help. then i don't want to leave here. i have a deep connection. my husband and my son a buried here. i want to be able to visit the grave. and i want to stay and i want my generation to be moved again. about $12000.00 district over the past 3 decades as it but john said it would ensure the safety of those living along the corridor. but after all, what's happened? no one here is willing to take the risk. but at the while still i have, i'm sorry, there's concern that armed groups might target verses in back in

a fast as election. 6000000 people will head to the polls there on sunday where security has been the main campaign theme. now in the past year, attacks on civilians have left more than 2000 people dead, and a 1000000 displaced amid interest reports. like maybe brahimi is worried as election day is. the resident of war has witnessed 2 deadly attacks and broken up fossils capital and fears. they could be another despite real threat of violence on election day. he says he will cast his ballot. for me, the choice is democracy or this violence is totally unnecessary. whoever wants power should seek the people's mandate, not through violence. this is attack in 2016 mark to the beginning of a series of acts of violence by local militias and foreign fighters. some of them crossing in from neighboring mali. more than 2000, people have been killed in these attacks. and over a 1000000 have been displaced. the model can and has survived 2 attacks in his
8:12 am
village. after 3rd, he said he's had enough detectives broke down my brother's door and shot him. my son was there in his traumatized. we fled to get dugard for safety and to get help for my son. in 2015, birkenau fossils army was weakened by a purge following an attempted coup. this is the only bafflement. they've narrowed down their choice of targets to military and government officials because they think that will cripple government institutions. military is ill equipped to deal with these attacks, but foreign help is arriving to support local efforts. but that support is clearly not enough. at least in brooklyn, a fossil and its citizens are worried over the recent spike in attacks. the last 5 years have been the country's cutoff. we can't go to the other side. the country is divided. we have never seen it like this. in the 1st 6 months of the year,
8:13 am
more than 4600, people have been killed by armed groups in booking, a fossil miley in this year. and that is despite the presence of 820000, strong international force deployed to help restore peace in 5 sale countries. with nearly $1600.00 villages sacked security is now the common campaign theme for all political parties and their candidates. and it's hard to say if the candidates can deliver on the promises, the better voters or security. but edris al-jazeera now still ahead on al-jazeera fears of a humanitarian crisis as violence in northern ethiopia. tens of thousands across the border. hello, the latest on the storm systems is working its way through during sex. so you see
8:14 am
showers or thunderstorms in the levant, and they got the system proper, further east in iraq generating snow over the high ground of iran, and some in the caucasus as well. at the same time, this increasing breeze on the coast of man might well be a circulation in the arabian sea, which by sunday could produce some significant rain, not just as a culture, but in the horn of africa, and throw her few showers into southern yemen. and maybe in iran as well between the 2, it looks fairly dry than increasing breeze briefly. dancer, bahrain, and qatar and the sun's back out. and iraq, as it is mostly in the levant, heading south this season or right now is where it should be said, more or less tanzania, and west woods to go to a sort of area. still a few showers, stray showers further south and of course the potential for flash flooding in the north of somalia because what we just talked about in the arabian sea. but the rain now should go south and he's done that. the proper rain seems to be running through
8:15 am
angola, botswana, and down to the middle of south africa. but if you're further west, you'll find in cape town, the temperatures drop to $23.00, and then when it's sunny for 23 years. musson has collected objects. he kinds along the coast, enough to fill his museum enough to break a guinness world record. with a story that every object has become an environmental activist and inspired artist . and a voice for the plight of countless markets. might you need such an al-jazeera? the the, the in value
8:16 am
watching out his era. let's remind you of our top stories, the salad republican party leaders from the us state of michigan. say they're not aware of any information that would change joe biden's electoral victory. then they issued a statement after meeting with president trump saying the state certification process should be free from threats and intimidation to reportedly white security guards in brazil are being investigated for homicide. over the killing of a black man outside a supermarket. demonstrators are calling for a boycott of the call for supermarket chain. i mean, as aereo, me says it's and to them a district that's been under armenian control for almost 3 decades. now. it's one of 3 areas that armenia has to hand back as part of a cease fire deal after weeks of fighting in the disputed region of not going to
8:17 am
carve out. now the philippines will lift a ban on health care workers leaving the country up to 5000 nurses. a year will now be allowed to accept jobs overseas present, regarded her as a, introduce the band back in april, saying filipino doctors and nurses were needed at home to help fight the coronavirus. but nurses campaigned against that door saying salaries in the philippines are too low to live on. well, we can now speak tamara, stella bene, hot. she is the national president of filipino nurses, united and she joins us now from quezon city. thanks for joining us. marist. i'm sure this comes as welcome news, but with this limit, the 5000 nurses. how much of a difference will that me where the oh we have been the seeking for a bit with the lifting of the ban. but those beside been almost 9 months. lobbying for our government and since the government decided on a cop that goes with the lifting of the bun,
8:18 am
making it 5000 on the health workers to be allowed every year to work in and in other countries. are big question now is how would it be possible for the government to reveal and by use our filipino workers to work here? because right now we have so many burning issues among our nurses currently working in the government sector and even in prices a set for us. well, no, just yesterday we heard, we held our seat down and another house because they had this be kept within their house because we are demanding for dream isa lower delayed sod, that nice for 3 months, or 4 months or so old. and also the nuns provision of house, sorry baby, and especially recently once for all were nurses, doctors, and other health workers who are taking care of called the patients here. the department of health. i'd meet there during the budget here being in best send me
8:19 am
last november 18 doctors. there are about $16764.00 health workers who have not yet that receive their hostage say in special recently once. and that not even for the see, there are those then 1000 health workers that they have hired and varied emergency hiring for qualified 19. so even the us, they put a cop of 5000 for allowing no good workers to leave the country. i think their greatest challenge now is how to really and vice our health workers to remain in the country and not leave and work for this for under water intensive myself. i mean obviously some outstanding issues there. and i understand that very few of the nurses who've been stuck in the philippines since april, well, willing to work at home. i'm curious about the pay and working conditions that not just the, the outstanding pay, but the regular pay and how you've been treated during this pandemic. that's very
8:20 am
true and proper being there by on many nurses who mends are and there are process seeing is already on the go we and that they are just waiting for the being of the by and this is a relief for them. but i have said, even if they were a cop, hoping that they were there will be nurses and other health care workers that the care of the patients here in the country that will be the extreme challenge for them. and unless they are to me it's all of the budgets will even be smart. i want to turn to nursing abroad. it's a huge industry for weapons from the philippines. and i know so many of your families rely on remissions says from that that we've seen the philippines recently battered by storms. and we see this pandemic, surely that makes the financial support and also all the more important. yes.
8:21 am
because for one, if we have lessened the number of families that are already heard, then the government, because once there are bread winners will be able to leave the country and work in niger or in land. then they can manage the basic needs of their needs, like food security, the education of their siblings or of their children and medication of their parents and other family members who are on maintenance of medicaid. sean. so these are some of the basic things or even ramphele of their apartment or house will. so that's a big grid via the government because there will be a reduction in the number of parties who are seeking subsidy from the government doesn't resolve all economic crises abroad. so yeah,
8:22 am
this will be of be care of the development of the country more in their marist, the national president of filipino ness is united. thanks for joining us. and we wish you all the best with your wet or in this pandemic. i think you'll hear now the united nations is warning of a humanitarian crisis in northern ethiopia,, the government and the t.v., a people's liberation front, both accuse each other of killing civilians in strikes and in indiscriminate attacks during the 2 week long offensive. so the un has called on warring sides to stop fighting immediately. similar aid can be delivered and refugee safe. syrians can be set up. a correspondent mohammed atta is in the ethiopian capital, addis ababa. if they come pulled the cup it'll, it means they are defeated. and mackellar is conceded, the ultimate price, quote, if you're playing national defense forces, who are now said to be roughly about 100 kilometers from the capital. they are
8:23 am
saying they will launch attacks from the killer from at least 4 different forms. but what is going to be a huge opportunity to the t.p.s. is that the city is some are owned by hills and mountains where they have mounted defenses and a hopeful that will stop their advancing opponents. of course, both sides are heavily armed and it might not be izzy. according to security to unlist. a technicality is the us does been for the european defense force, a stick of a promise, like the man of war, which they have just clearly talk of taken control off. and in the pro turk that conflict, many here fear, would not just affect a few opiate, but the entire horn of africa region. and now the un secretary general has wanted yemen is inching closer to the wild west famine in decades. and her new terrorist

8:26 am
joe biden has promised a much more clear eyed policy regarding the kingdom of u.n. headquarters. i asked one participant of the g. 20, the secretary general for his view of saudi's human rights record. i'm talking about the lack of proper accountability for the murder of jamal khashoggi, the continued detention of political prisoners, including women activists and reports of torture. secretary, or you have the chance to address all of this fully. or you can dodge my question. but wouldn't that be it? wouldn't that be? wouldn't that be effectively greenlighting more abuses by shans in what i've just said? that is a clear reference to the needs of all these programs to have one objective that everybody should be able to enjoy full human rights. and what going to hell seems like bits of south for human rights apply to all countries, including the host country of the g 20. what about those ships pacific? if you says in those that i'm saying, what we want is human rights everywhere,
