to be on the greek borders and of course you have syrians as well and this just underscores how important a country turkey is to hosting the regions are refugees and white ciena so important to controlling those people leaving the country but on cruise it is clear that it cannot host these people anymore and there are expect to be growing numbers of refugees heading towards a border as uncle makes clear it's not going to change its policy and this will and concerns among the humanitarian groups of the conditions they are facing it is still winter it's freezing at night many of the people there are families who have young children even concerned about feeding these people what are they going to do for sanitation as the numbers are expected to build up in the coming days ahead. turkey is already hosting over 3000000 refugees from the syrian conflict as you mentioned dorian more on the way is any progress being made in deescalating that

7:10 am

7:11 am
with no other side winning enough seats to form a government. that is due to stand trial later this month over a series of corruption scandals the w.'s tanya kramer sent us this report from israel. young student activists campaigning for the right wing likud party on the university campus into celeb they want to see bend to mean or bibi netanyahu from the next coalition government and end the ongoing political stalemate. yes of course sharply what in your there's a sense that the election is about yes unknown to bibi i would like to see the election dealing with ideological content and political messages but politics is politics and carry am a very live put it because they're part of pick out the elections a rerun of benyamin netanyahu versus benny gantz and the polls are predicting almost the same outcome as the previous 2 ballots last year there's also some election fatigue in the air in the last few days before the election the threat of
7:12 am
the coronavirus has made more headlines in the israeli media than the upcoming vote . the main issue is that we are going without a government for a year now the country is dysfunctioning the knesset the israeli parliament is out of order nothing works and obviously people wants to put dispirited behind them and move forward to have a government that will can work for the israeli people to remain prime minister netanyahu needs to win back the so-called magician of israeli politics has made one election pledge after another the enix ation of parts of the west bank based on trump's middle east plan a new settlement housing all to cater to this hardline nationalist voter base. his opponent benny gantz has made netanyahu has indictments and upcoming trial over corruption charges and election issue but also his center left bloc is unlikely to
7:13 am
as a clear the know. enough minutes there is no real renee here we just need bibi to leave and say thank you very much i was a great prime minister i finished my job he can reach an agreement that you cannot be judged on what he has done and he can go home. so do i think methanol is the best person or if no but he is the best man for the job right now in 2020 and i voted for in the last 2 stalemate all vote for him again i don't give voting because every vote counts every vote counts but every word counts in this repeated action it remains to be seen whether israelis will see a clear path to a new coalition government after the polls. offer more than a let's cross over to mitchell brock he's a pollster in israel and joins us from jerusalem thanks for being with us this morning 1st of all what are the chances that this select good morning good morning will actually break israel's political deadlock. that's the big question
7:14 am
israelis are hoping that finally after 3 election cycles that they will have a government and go back to normal so it's hard to say what the chances are at this point i will say that the big factor is really going to be turnout people know who they're going to vote for there's not a lot of movement within the blocks and the turnout is really going to affect it i mean likud has been campaigning that there's you know tens of thousands hundreds of thousands of likud voters that stayed home i don't know how true that is or not that's what they're campaigning on but i will say than that and you know has run a very very aggressive campaign whereas benny gantz has been somewhat silent you mentioned the importance of turnout well this is israel's 3rd general election in 11 months or boaters not getting a bit frustrated voter fatigue be a factor here today perhaps affecting turnt up. well voter fatigue is always
7:15 am
a factor because they've done this before but i'm not convinced meaning i think what what people around the world don't understand it is a vacation day in israel everyone gets the day off a paid vacation day so we've now had 3 vacation days in a year kids are off from school in israel is a country that doesn't really have sundays schools are operating 6 days a week so it's fantastic now you see it's you know 8 o'clock in the morning there's not a lot of people on the streets everyone sleeping late unfortunately it's a little cold otherwise people would be going to the beach but people take trips the trains are free all over the country so it's not so bad the problem is that there's a lot of uncertainty and that the budgets have been passed and you know people are hurting because there's instability in israel as a country that's used to a certain amount of instability more having to do with the security situation but here everything is after the election after election when they'll be a government when they'll be a budget so people are their patients are running out more than there is fatigue
7:16 am
now benjamin netanyahu of course is about to stand trial and corruption charges could have an effect on today's results. well i think it will have more of effect meaning the people that are voting for him just see that as another away or another plot to try and take him down if you can't take him down in the polls then the then the attorney general is going to do it then the courts are going to do it and the police are going to do it where i do think it will play a factor it will absolutely play a factor during the coalition negotiations because just a few blocks from here in jerusalem in the district court on the 17th of march 1 day after the knesset is sworn in will sit on the defendant's bench and his trial will begin so as long as he's not the sitting prime minister with a government for him to negotiate be sworn in as member of knesset and then they go she with parties as a defendant that may be just a little too much for not only the israeli people but other israeli lawmakers to
7:17 am
say you just don't have the capacity to be a defendant it doesn't look good we're going to need to find someone else who can do the job so that's where i think it's going to be a big factor michel brock is really a poster thought poster thank you very much for talking with us thank you have a great day now this weekend's the u.s. and the taliban signed a long negotiated agreement to end the war in afghanistan but it's already hit a rough patch afghanistan's president says his government has not pledged to release thousands of taliban prisoners despite that being part of the deal. these signatures given at a historic summit in qatar's capital doha milestone on afghanistan's road to peace after almost 20 years of war.
7:18 am
but that road was always going to be rocky under the deal the afghan government will release thousands of taliban prisoners ahead of talks between afghan factions but afghanistan's president ashraf ghani said his government never agreed to that and it wasn't for the u.s. to decide. now where that would be better you know no commitment has been made for the release of 5000 prisoners. we have repeatedly said this issue clearly with the u.s. envoy that's out of my colleagues out and other officials with the mommy this is the legitimate right and self-determination of the people of afghanistan. a request has been made and it can be part of the negotiation very cannot be a precondition for the getting my demands on stones. for many afghans the hope of an end to the violence is tempered by fears for their country's future . with the ability to get you know if the u.s.
7:19 am
leaves afghanistan we afghans are worried about a return to the brutal situation that the taliban will stop their attacks again. so we call on the taliban to sign the peace deal with the afghan government as soon as possible that i'm inside just about. women and girls especially suffered severe repression under taliban rule. kabul veterinarian ta is worried about the threat to women's progress if the group we gain strength through talks with the government. i don't feel very optimistic because i don't know who will come to power if there's peace with the taliban. looking at their history i feel less hopeful that i'll be able to continue my work if there is peace with the taliban war will come to. it's now a waiting game to see how talks between different afghan groups play out following saturday's deal. like reside people here hope they won't have to pay for peace with
7:20 am
their freedom. and we're joined from kabul by koofi a member of the afghan parliament and one of the few women who took part in the negotiations aimed at bringing an end to decades of conflict. you took part in these negotiations i understand are you satisfied with the outcome. well people in afghanistan including myself we are cautiously optimistic i'm saying cautiously optimistic because 1st of all it is the beginning of an important process where the afghan islamic republic and then the taliban have to really set in few days. we're hoping as it's agreed to mention and the taliban and the united states have been and we have to set in few days and discuss those issues the people of afghanistan are worried about discuss about women's rights advocate rights the future of the government where everyone will feel included
7:21 am
and then in the meantime we we are. optimistic because this is a beginning of a big process but we are cautious because. there has not really been a major steps by taliban to both trust and to demonstrate that they are that they have changed that they will not come back as they were doing. during 1996 that they are committed to. the mom soft people of afghanistan. 8 and also we are cautious because there is also. not a strong tight afghanistan islamic republic delegation has to be really inclusive we have to start preparation for. you know kind of making of you know. yes i just wanted to ask you there's a very important point that in the story right now president for truck county says
7:22 am
his government has not pledged to release thousands of taliban prisoners even the that's part of the deal that the americans apparently have made with the taliban does it put this deal in jeopardy. oh i get. this these initially was that there was less involvement from islamic republic of france including the government and the political community to be part of this to make sure that this step is agreed upon and then it becomes pretty practical and it becomes you know something that could be a fly. so therefore i think the 1st challenge now is 5 up to 5000 taliban prisoners i take no just because we also have very fair to 5000 taliban you know the ones who actually not should not go back to the battlefield should not use their you know we can see again against the got the people of afghanistan how do you fight a fight that how do you you know kind of make that distinction to dillies the
7:23 am
taliban that have not been really involved in major crime including suicide bombing so i think this is a challenge just because you but also politically because the last hold up on this very clear i mean yes probably inside afghanistan we have different views and because views are just only under islamic republic when it comes to taliban we have to really respect the laws of a planet on for that i think this is that this is a commitment that needs a lot of time a lot of discussion and a lot of there is a lot of issues about it ok so many issues remain of kofi member of the afghan parliament thank you so much for talking with this is morning. on the sports in the bundesliga rb light safe lost ground in the title chase after a one all draw at home to violated prison life should remain 2nd in the table but there are now 3 points behind leaders by in munich. one of 6 fans believe it's their year to win the title and they were pumped up for this top of the table clash
