6:00 am
punished according lyly and no one is going to be treated in any other way. operations against the militants of i.s.i.l. and members of pkk and similar terrorist organizations will continue. the number of actions that have been detected in rural areas in an attempt to form illegal terrorist bodies and they will be vigorously at fault. yes, we are behind the national
6:01 am
project, the national unity project and we cannot tolerate anyone taking advantage of the current climate and try to form into try to form illegal institutions or bodies. we have to be prepared to pay the cost of living in a country
6:02 am
like turkey if we don't take that into account, if we are not prepared to pay for it then we may not have the luxury but whoever targets turkey they should be in no illusion and never forget that turkey is strong and turkey is powerful to punish those who try to target and attack turkey. i don't want anyone to have any worries due to the fact that turkey has just come out of an election and a new government is in the process of being formed
6:03 am
but while that takes place we are in our office and we will of course take all necessary steps accordingly. accordingly. >> so these are the live shots you are looking at from turkey that is the turkey prime minister, he was giving a statement on the resent developments in turkey saying that turkey cannot stand by as kurdish, leftist and islamic state militants as help calls them all target turkey and said the security operation on friday and we saw raids going on across the country and air strikes take place inside syria targeting i.s.i.l. and said that security operation is not a one off but part of a comprehensive process. also saying this marks the
6:04 am
beginning of a period where operations will continue and they will widen gradually so he was speaking in ankora and crossing over for developments in the border of syria and interestingly mohamed he said that negotiations with the united states on that air base are separate from current security operations of course referring to developments that turkey is now allowing the u.s. to use that air base to launch attacks on i.s.i.l. in syria. >> reporter: yeah, that is right, doreen and we had heard earlier reports which officials had been saying that turkey agreed to let the u.s. use its air base and possibly another air base from which to launch attacks from i.s.i.l. and, in fact, an item on an agency which is the official state media
6:05 am
agency for turkey had also carried such an item quoting u.s. officials and now it seems as though the prime minister denying this saying this was a separate issue saying that turkey was not under pressure from any outside country to do more, that they were dealing with terrorism if their own way although he did discuss the fact that the u.s. and turkey have been holding negotiations especially these past few weeks and we have seen u.s. defense officials come to turkey and meet with officials here and try to figure out how they can broaden their cooperation and how they can more effectively fight the terror group like i.s.i.l. that are so threatening not just to turkey but the region as a whole and saying turkey is dealing with this in its own way and this negotiation was a separate thing and seeming to deny turkey had given access to any air base of the u.s. or u.s. led coalition from which to launch attacks from i.s.i.l. >> he also did say speaking about coordination he said that
6:06 am
there will be more intensive coordination with allied nations and that is something that is going to continue. also how are these comments going to be received across the country? >> well the main message of prime minister's speak was this he said very definitively that he has given authorization to the military here to take any measures that they need to anybody who poses a threat to the borders of turkey. he is basically saying that turkey is not going to sit around any more that they are bolstering their military on the border especially they know how much of a threat they face right now from i.s.i.l. now, one of the things we noticed here in this region in the past few days there is a lot of anger from the kurdish community because they don't feel the turkish government has done enough to protect them and fight i.s.i.l. and we spoke with a farmer just yesterday, here is what he told us here is our
6:07 am
report report. >> reporter: he says he wishes for nothing more than a modest country life. the simple pleasure urs of being able to feed his animals without looking over his shoulder. >> translator: we used to be able to relax, to sleep well but since the start of the syrian war and especially the fighting in kobani we can't any more. >> reporter: now, there are worries over the safety of his wife and five children. >> translator: i.s.i.l. could cross this border just by walking. they could do it very easily. >> reporter: he has seen it happen before and believes it will happen again. while this back drop certainly may not look tense it's in small villages like this one on turkey's long border with syria which residents are constantly feeling a threat to their security.
6:08 am
the village is directly across from the syrian border town of kobani and last year he saw the pitched battles from i.s.i.l. and kurdish ypg borders from his door stop. >> we saw this with our own eyes and still scared because the military does not catch i.s.i.l. and they are not arresting them. >> reporter: it was just down the road in downtown where security levels had already been raised that a suicide bomber killed 32 people on monday. since then the tense relationship between turkey's government and kurdish population has grown worse. many kurds accuse the government of not doing enough to combat the threat from i.s.i.l. and protect them allegations that officials strongly deny. >> translator: for those who say our government is connected to and supporting i.s.i.l. this is totally untrue. our government is fighting especially against i.s.i.l. because we see i.s.i.l. as the
6:09 am
biggest threat. >> reporter: now, fears are growing but the fragile ceasefire between turkey and the pkk, the outlawed kurdis tan party will be broken and they claimed responsibility for the killing of two turkey police officers who they claim collaborated with i.s.i.l. he is weary of it all and far closer to the violence in syria than he is the security meetings, waiting for the chaos and conflicts to end, wanting only a life of simplicity he says his family deserves. now, allow me to set the scene for you and our viewers a bit. behind me what you see just about two kilometers in that direction that is a part of the border attacked by i.s.i.l. yesterday, that is where the clashes ensued with i.s.i.l. and turkish military and calling the first direct clashes between i.s.i.l. and the turkish
6:10 am
military, very significant development. now, just in the past hour we have seen more turkish tanks heading in that direction so certainly this really highlights the measures that are being taken by the turkish government as something that prime minister spoke of just moments ago saying they will be bolstering border security as something we see with our own eyes and continuing to see and will it be enough and people don't think so but the turkish government saying they will protect the country from i.s.i.l. and other groups. >> reporting and thank you very much. in burundi there has been more violence aimed at both government and opposition supporters results from tuesday's presidential election are due to be announced in the coming hours and his ability to run for a third term has been heavily critical likeand we are at the capitol and when do we
6:11 am
expect the results to be announced? >> well, people waiting anxiously for the results and getting on with their lives pretty much during the day and at night they want to make sure they endorse in case there is violence overnight. we are told by the officials they are adding a few details but result also be announced in a few hours about 3:30 p.m., that is 1330 gmt. and will he win a third term and carry another five years in office and supporters will be happy and will celebrate on the streets, the question is those who are not happy about this how they are going to react. >> that is what i wanted to ask you, the opposition says he simply doesn't have legitimacy and how tough will it make the presidency and what are they expected to do the opposition? >> people are concerned about the threat of possible violence. they know that during the
6:12 am
evening things go wrong like gunfire and explosions that happen. last night a woman with her four children were injured when a grenade was thrown in a house. this place here this market, is also netorious for violence and people throw grenades at women with vegetables and concerned about potential of violence and that said they understand life has to go on and they have to go out and try to make money but they are frustrated and are concerned there could be more violence and all they can do is wait, wait and try to learn a few things but hoping to hear very soon. >> thank you very much. there are reports that burundi refugees now living in neighboringneighbor neighboring wooneighbor neighboring rwanda and they say dozens of men have left the camp and we have your exclusive report. >> reporter: this mother was a
6:13 am
teacher in the capitol and says her husband left the refugee camp two weeks ago after a series of meetings with an unknown rebel group to fight in burundi and talking to husband us with identity hidden is dangerous but she says she just wants her husband back. >> translator: he hinted to me he was going to fight for the country and go bring peace but he wouldn't give me details and when he left he didn't even carry his phone or anything. >> reporter: we also talked to several young man who say they have been approached by recruiters and know refugees who left for weapons training. this is an issue discussed and many people are afraid to speak out and those who manage to talk to are already saying their lives are being threatened. the u.n. refugee agency unhcr officials also had the
6:14 am
allegations. >> of course we have been concerned about such attacks and therefore we have raised it with the government from the beginning of the establishment of the camps and we have been given the assurance that the government will take all measures to curb such attempts that would be done. >> reporter: earlier this month burundi military with men and women were captured in fighting in the forest along the border with rwanda. many people here are hungry and burundi's president's run for a third term which they say is unconstitutional and also accuse his party's youth wing of killing and intimidating opponents back home but say they will not join any rebellion. >> we failed already. we cannot fight because we are already traded and armed and have all those arms but we still
6:15 am
have one arm, our god is there. not the god that our president trusts in right now. >> reporter: according to refugees we talked to the mass recruitment in the days of the conflict in burundi has gone down but people like this woman who doesn't know where her husband is say they are worried. that was catherine soy reporting from the refugee camp in eastern rwanda. police in nepal arrested 200 protesters after the draft constitution turned violent and stopped burning cars and damaging property and schools and businesses are still closed. the general strike was called by the communist party and it says smaller opposition parties, concerns and suggestions for the charter are being ignored. you're with the al jazeera news hour, still to come germany looking to renewable energy to meet demand for power but could it cost the earth?

6:34 am
this morning are not ad hoc operations. it marks the beginning of a period and as of today we will continue operations which we will widened broadly. >> the turkey correspondence and is live from ankora and i'm sure you heard your prime minister speaking just a short while ago and said the security operation is not one off but part of a comprehensive process and in your opinion what does that mean? what do you expect to see in turkey in terms of a widening security operation? >> reporter: early in the morning when turkey bombarded i.s.i.l. targets in syria we were not sure the bombing activities were going to be sustained ones but the prime minister told a statement and we understand that turkey has shifted its previous policy of allegedly tolerating i.s.i.l.
6:35 am
activities inside turkey as well as turkey to syria to the one not tolerating it whatsoever to i.s.i.l. activities via turkish territory and the internally just said before turkish bombardment of i.s.i.l. targets in syria, 16s were reported in syrian air space. we understand that. >> when you say the turkish government has now shifted its policy, talk to me about the turks now allowing the u.s.-led coalition to use the turkish air base to bomb targets inside syria and what could the turkish governments, what could have been going on behind the scenes for the turks to allow this to happen now? >> none of the turkish or u.s.
6:36 am
officials have confirmed whether it will be used for bombardment but it seems that they can actively be used by anti-i.s.i.l. coalition forces perhaps in the form of armed and everyday flight and attacking i.s.i.l. targets. >> the turks had said that they would agree to the use of that air base if no fly zone was part of that deal that's what they were advocating for, so could this be what's going on right now? >> yes you are right. i'm not of the opinion that the coalition or u.s. will agree for the setting up of a safe zone along the turkish borders but this is the turkish allowance of
6:37 am
usage of injury for operational purposes and is the condition and link to the creation of a safe zone along the border however, these two events may not come military in other words, turkey may allow the use of this for operational purposes and in return turkey wants the u.s. to prevent syrian kurdish fighters or i.s.i.l. to capture an area between this a cross on the syrian side of the border because turkish and kurdish control of the whole border region with turkey still continues. >> okay, thank you very much for speaking to us from ankora.

economists say iraq needs to expand the private sector to encounter high unemployment and rising poverty rates but the problem now is much bigger than that. >> the fight against i.s.i.l. is really costing iraq the budget over 23% of the overall budget of a hundred billion u.s. dollar. it is an economic crisis it is a fiscal crisis the country is short of cash it's not short of assets, but we have to manage and we have to make our priorities. >> reporter: last month the iraqi dnr dropped to its lowest level in ten years after the central bank tried to impose new taxes on imports and it recovered after the plan was dropped. for shop owners there are even more uncertainties. this clothing comes from turkey but the most direct routes are closed by fighting.
