watching al-jazeera life from a headquarters in doha and you navigate also ahead after days of threats kurdish fighters say turkey has started shelling its positions in syria's northwest. we made it clear that it was a plant it was not a guarantee or a trouble for palestinians the u.s. suspends a forty five million dollars payment of un food for. the process begins the final leg if a politically sensitive visit to south america. hello audio recordings of a member of qatar is royal family accuse saudi arabia and the u.a.e. of fabricating the gulf crisis in order to seize qatar as wealth say the lebanese
army and fanny had been portrayed by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. as the main opposition figure to cast ours leadership. now he accuses muhammad been some and how much been the saudi arabian and i will be crown prince is off hogging the entire crisis in the audiotape of trained by al jazeera he threatened to end his life citing pressure from crown prince abdullah bin i did that he had been living in saudi arabia since the blockade began in june he then moved to the u.a.e. where he accused the government there of detaining him he's now in a kuwait military hospital. i mean this is. and this to them. and. yet.
let's have a little while it. would be commuter. measured on saudi is a professor of sociology at katz our university told me that doha actually has gains from the gulf crisis. basically i mean there's nobody who is more better situated than benignly to talk about when they really want because he was basically a partner of them during this crisis he was in on everything he was part of the attempts against a lot of through this design of being a replacement for the emir through what he said in the media but it's clear that there was only so much that he can do and so much as he can so much that he can go to when it comes to how. bad things he could say about i don't think this is a significant. piece of. the tail i mean this is certainly something significant in
the means that it shows how the u.a.e. and saudi arabia deals with their partners before dealing with their with their enemies but when it comes to the case of the locate itself now we know that the americans now have a new. wave of communication that they're doing they've already contacted his highness the emir of qatar his highness the emir of kuwait we know that there are some rumors about things happening in d.c. now that it's apparent that the white house would like to end this crisis as quick as possible they don't want it to log on anymore and now we know that the white house is actually much more invested than it was before in the crisis of international. relations has have actually betted since the beginning of this crisis we have actually more partners than we had before we have signed many agreements with various entities and the last one was yesterday with nato so i think qatar has bloomed through this experience i think that we were able to first of all cut ties with their powers that were happening us down i mean saudi and the
u.a.e. and other nations in the in the gulf and special of the three that are blocking us will always hamper towards couples international position to us got us advice and development. kurdish commanders say turkish forces have intensified shelling against villages controls in the off districts of northern syria the bombardments from turkish territory began around midnight and continued into friday morning and why produce spokesman told reuters this marks the heaviest turkish shelling since the turkish government stepped up threats to launch an offensive stephanie decker has more from the border between turkey and syria's offering districts syria's deputy foreign minister is saying that its air defenses were ready and if any turkish jet violated syrian airspace it would shoot it down and i know that you know the syrians also say this when it comes to israeli jets occasionally it is a message of course that the syrians of damascus is not happy about this but i think if we're really going to cut to the chase the russians that call the shots on
this one and this is why we've seen the you know the chief of staff the turkish chief of staff and the head of intelligence yesterday in moscow talking to their counterparts today as well talks are ongoing to try and figure this out the turkey has been so clear i mean the political rhetoric over the last week here has been from the president from you know the foreign minister now from the defense minister saying we are going to go in with the picture on turkish television tanks reinforcing the board seems very embarrassing if you will if this is no if something isn't going to happen the u.s. says it will withhold another payment to the un's relief agency for palestinian refugees the forty five million dollars payment which was earmarked for food aid was promised last month. at the time when we provided that note that information to under we made it clear that it was a pledge it was not a guarantee and that it would need to be confirmed later at this time we will not
be providing that but that it does not mean i want to make it clear that does not mean that it will not be provided in the future while this follows washington's announcement on tuesday that it was withholding sixty five million dollars of a one hundred twenty five million dollar aid package the u.s. provides the largest amount of funding to the agency last year the obama administration gave more than three hundred fifty million dollars order was helped an estimated five million palestinians in education health care and housing and is active in palestinian occupied territories like gaza and syria lebanon and jordan as well simmons has more from what i'm on the occupied west bank. this was an emergency funding appeal which went in december only less than four weeks ago and this was the response of the u.s. yes we'll put in this amount of money forty five million it's a pledge we will do so to help this cause what we're hearing now is that that money
has been pulled back it's not being x. completely it's being withheld and of course this is really humanitarian dynamite for the palestinians because their bottom line is that they're dependent on it's a very different thing to u.n.h.c.r. which is for refugees outside of their countries of origin this is an internationally agreed agency a u.n. agency it's got nothing to do with any attempts at peace talks anything to do with the planet's politics it is a service for refugees five million new put the context together in that intro you have people who need access to this service teaching education a chance to try to get a job food and this is particularly what we're talking about right now because this funding is directly onto the plates of those in need in montana as in gaza with
a look at how this will affect families who are already struggling. this house is typical of many in the gaza strip now currently there's an electricity blackouts they get like steep blackouts for about twelve hours a day now the u.s. is withholding food aid but what does that actually mean i know i supply things like this sacks of flour reich's it's the basics that they supply you know the only supply them about once every three months so a sack of flour about this big needs to last a family of nine for that long so there's already a cute shortages. getting. worried because this is the only help we have to live we have no choice from where else are we supposed to get food we can't buy we can't work there is no work if they decrease to aid what shall we do there's about two million people in the gaza strip now about one point one million of those people rely on food aid in some way or another people like these are going to be
affected the most now the u.s. president has said that he wants changes to the way under operate you also once the international community to step up and donate a lot more aid he said that the u.s. is very generous but other countries need to step up whether by withholding it is actually taking food away from people like these the head of the roman catholic church is taking his environmental crusade deep into the amazon rain forest on the first full day of his visit to peru pope francis is flying to porto maldonado in the southeast of the country that's where he's expected to meet with thousands of indigenous people the environmentally fragile region has been hit by deforestation and illegal mining peruse the final leg of the pope's south americans who are coming off the back of his visit to neighboring chile more now from marianna sanchez. pope will be spending the night in early on friday he will be heading to
