8:02 pm
least a dozen syrian and iranian bases well syria responded with a barrow aircraft fire and that's when the f. sixteen was dad. well iran has rejected as ridiculous israel's claim that it intercepted one of its jones israel says iran is playing with fire by entering its air space among khan has more now from west jerusalem the operation is ongoing but we haven't heard of any fresh attacks from anywhere inside syria in the last hour or so but the official line is that the operation is ongoing and they're also not commenting on what brought down the israeli f. sixteen fighter jets however across social media here the blame is being placed squarely in the hands of iran saying that iran is a big problem for the israelis are these be dealt with very quickly now to the iranians have actually reacted that issued a statement it says shooting down the israeli jet is a clear message the days of carrying out attacks inside syria go on any new attack
8:03 pm
will be confronted iran stands by syria against any foolish move by israel so there's a lot of strong reaction coming out from iran there's been a battle one hundred israeli airstrikes inside syria against various targets including hezbollah convoys and the like what we saw in the last for a few a few hours today is attacks against what they call the iranian targets and against syrian defense batteries twelve in total well as am i mentioned it's not the first time israel has hit targets inside syria iran sent military advisers and allegedly thousands of its revolutionary guards to help the syrian government and that build up all the arabian assets has been increasing they worry for israel in a harder explains. this is the golan heights territory israel captured from syria in one nine hundred sixty seven the war in syria has brought iran and its allies
8:04 pm
like the lebanese armed group hezbollah closer to that border israel says that is something it won't tolerate it has reached out to russia an ally of the syrian and iranian government's. before this was the deal that was signed by netanyahu and put it on the thirtieth of september when netanyahu went to russia in two thousand and fifteen and russia will prevent the iranians from building bases near the borders with israel this is when the russians entered syria and launched their military operations we have been witnessing israeli air strikes ever since. israel has struck targets inside syria for years and has had convoys carrying weapons destined for hezbollah arms depots bases clearly with a green light from russia moscow does control the air space the israeli air force was flying unchallenged until saturday when one of them was shot down by syrian anti-aircraft batteries after it struck targets around damascus.
8:05 pm
the downing of the plane coincided with what some believe is the beginning of a more aggressive strategy to roll back iran rules america are the russians in front of a confrontation with the americans in syria are the americans in front of a possible confrontation with the russians in syria or is there an unannounced deal between the russians and americans to reduce iranian presence in syria. israel considers russia its guarantor for security along its border with syria they have talked about a buffer zone but israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has said the ceasefire agreement in southern syria didn't address what he called iranian military ambitions israel has repeatedly said it will not allow iran and its allies to entrench themselves militarily in syria and it won't allow syria to become a forward operating base against israel that's a guy who calls them raw. lines now the syrian government and its allies are introducing red lines of their own they say the downing of the israeli jets is
8:06 pm
a clear message that the days of carrying out attacks in syria are gone russia allied to both sides is calling for restraint and for syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity to be respected it was a serious and dangerous incident the israeli army said it was not a war but more than a confrontation for now all sides have taken a step back after making their message clear. route meanwhile turkish military helicopters been shot down in northern syria during an operation against kurdish fighters well this video is said to show the helicopter moments before it was done killing two soldiers on board turkish president rage a tire or do and says it happened near the southern how to take province. has more now from. turkey or the syria. the downing of this turkish manufactured attack helicopter that was killed to their soldiers is a significant development in this three week long but military operation it brings

8:08 pm
precisely because they have been trying to a very as any deaths of innocent civilians that have been reports that the y.p. g p y d that's the political wing of that car just militia have actually bussed in kurds from other towns and cities to use them as human shields the kurdish officials there would say actually this is just the natural response of the kurdish population in order to protect their town against what they see as a foreign aggression. three weeks now into operation on a ranch that does seem as i say to be steady advance made by the tarps and the free syrian army towards our field but this down and go for a helicopter will be sure to incur the wrath of the tsar christian ministry north korea's leader kim jong un has extended a rare invitation to the south korean president to visit john yang when hosted kid sister for talks in seoul on the sidelines of the winter olympics the question again has more national kong. in the presidential blue house in

8:13 pm
by violence or sexual abuse the aim is to convince the government that programs like this a needed on a national scale makes crispe huge amounts of money and manpower into combat in organized crime in comparison very little has been dedicated to treating traumatized victims and according to psychologists that shows a real lack of foresight because those affected by violence if not attended to a much more likely to repeat the cycle. that's the worst nightmare of parents like francisco trying to protect the next generation. not in. when. mean your. experts say it could take decades for the wounds of a society grown used to violence to hue the worry is that without intervention that process and struggle to even begin john homan how does it or
