bases israeli jets then came under syrian anti-aircraft fire and that's when that f. sixteen was hit. israel then launched a second series of strikes attacking at least a dozen syrian and iranian bases inside syria israel's air force says it's the most significant attack against syria since the one thousand nine hundred two lebanon war emraan kong reports from mr islam. in the early hours of saturday morning syria's war escalated to a new level for the first time in thirty years israel lost a fighter jet to enemy fire as israel confirmed syrian air defense shot at one of its f. sixteen fighter jets these really play minister was blunt israel iran and its most responsible for today's aggression we will continue to do whatever is necessary to protect our sovereignty and our security the crash followed the shooting down of a drone israeli army video shows what they say is the iranian drone flying towards

3:04 am
by israel the russians have also reacted saying that israel needs to respect syrian site to state sovereignty all. so what we're hearing is that the israelis want to send a strong message to the russians to get iran out of the region iraq on al-jazeera western islam now saying that's probably has more in reaction to the incident from the iranian capital tehran iran's foreign ministry said that the assertion that iran would fly a drone into israeli airspace is a ridiculous lie but iranian leaders celebrated serious retaliatory response to israeli airstrikes speaking to all jazeera the parliamentary spokesman on national security and foreign policy said that the downing of a fighter plane was just a taste of what is to come if israel continues its aggressive policies. this shooting down in confrontation has some important messages first to design this regime should know that the era of hit and run tactics is gone and regional
3:05 am
powers including syria lebanon and hezbollah have enough capabilities to confront aggression and these capabilities belong to these countries the zionist regime should not associate these capabilities with iran or other countries they are saying that an iranian drone shot down the warplane or an iranian military force did it this is a distortion to divert public opinion. with so many different actors in the syrian conflict with often simultaneously converging and verging agendas there is always a worry that an incident like this could open another front in the fighting speaking at a news conference president hassan rouhani said that israel's policy of bombardment is a mistake and that while iran is prepared to defend itself and its allies in the region he said that the best way for neighbors to get along is to cooperate turkish military helicopter has been shot down in northern syria during an operation against kurdish fighters this video is said to show the helicopter moments before
3:06 am
it was here near a frame killing two soldiers on board kurdish led syrians in a crowd of horses say its fighters shot down an aircraft but turkey says the cause is still unclear the total of eleven turkish soldiers were killed in fighting on saturday making it the deadliest day for the country's forces since they began the campaign in a frame last month. and causing on tap near turkey's border with syria. the downing of this tarkus manufactured attack helicopter that was killed to sucker soldiers is a significant development in this three week long military operation that brings the number of turkish soldiers killed by a z y p g kurdish militia group to over twenty years far as the turks are concerned they've killed at least one hundred fifty kurdish fighters now some advances have been made on the ground in the past twenty four forty eight hours as the free syrian army which is fighting alongside turkish military in order to advance
3:07 am
towards the y.p. cipro just stronghold of our free and i have managed to capture some villages on the road towards there as far as the turkish army is concerned and the listening to president merchant tehran they will respond the same to those who were behind that attack what's important to note here is that although the. kurds are sources in the y.p. ji claim that the turkish military has killed civilians in its operation ankara denies that they say the reason why this operation isn't going as fast as they wanted to is precisely because they have been trying to advise any deaths of innocent civilians that have been reports that the y.p. g. and the 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
3:08 am
a foreign aggression. three weeks now into operation on a ranch that does seem as i say to be a steady advance made by the tarps and the free syrian army towards are fine but this downing of a helicopter will be shorter and carve the rest of the targets from the tree. also in syria the u.n. says two hundred thirty civilians have been killed by syrian and russian airstrikes and just the past week and commissioner for human rights just cried as some of the worst violence during the almost seven year long conflict save saying says the strikes may also constitute war crimes he confirmed his office had received reports of the possible use of toxic agents earlier this month in the rebel held town of mar a cat. north korea's leader kim jong un has extended a rare and the taishan to south korean president. to visit. new host of chems sister for talks in seoul on the sidelines of the winter olympics. has more
3:09 am
from. him in the presidential blue house in the capital seoul relations between the two koreas continued to thaw the meeting had two firsts jiang is the first member of the ruling family to cross into the south since the korean war the sister of the north korean leader came with the first ever invitation kim jong un is asking south korean president moon jay in to come to pyongyang at a convenient time soon little kiddie president moon said early talks between north korea and the united states are essential to improve relations north korea to be more proactive to move forward to have a dialogue with the united states. it's unclear when that might happen the u.s. and north korea have rebuffed lose attempts so far if an interesting meeting transpires it will be the first time kim jong un has met with the south korean president since
3:10 am
assuming power in twenty eleven the last time leaders from the north and south met was eleven years ago during a summit in p.r. . because of all the global attention i believe reunification will be brought forth the government is making efforts and i think people are rooting for it organizers of the olympics say they've been moved by the diplomatic breakthrough it was quite on the story a moment. and something that as you know the i.o.c. has been generally working for since probably two thousand and fourteen. and you know i think it shows it opens opens the door maybe just a little bit critics say they doubt that door will ultimately open much more for now there is hope that the winter olympics is the catalyst for a reboot in intercourse and relations natasha going to aim jazeera south korea.
3:11 am
so it may be all smiles and handshakes between south north korea but the fiery rhetoric between pyongyang and washington that has not died down as vice president mike pence started his visit to the winter olympics saying he only had a message of maximum pressure for appealing a north korea or toward it saying it had no interest in meeting him either but chang it's a small place on tact as inevitable for the current leader kim jong un sister kim jong was seated close to pence at friday's opening ceremony they refused to engage with her or any other north korean official just before he left the games hence tweeted saying the u.s. would not allow the propaganda charade by north korea to go unchallenged and that the world cannot turn a blind eye to the air pressure and threats of complying as regime north korea quick to respond accusing the u.s. vice president of shameful and snobbish behavior and foster carter is a korea analyst he says kept on going to trying to drive
3:12 am
a wedge between the united states and south korea i think that a great deal of it is about the i must say kim jong un and north korea who we don't always associate with subtlety and troll of play the blind they both come in the last minute well mistaken lovo made themselves the center of attraction politically but that of these games and it's left to the u.s. vice president mike pence to look like the grumpy old man standing up for what is the international community's position so kim jong un's game really is to drive a wedge between the u.s. and south korea and but potentially she keeps reiterating that there is no daylight but i think now that the invitations being made for the summit all kinds of questions arise should go with should he go unconditionally should he insists that north korea should also talk to the u.s. well those kinds of questions will be vigorously debated i think between the allies and in the south korean media. votes are being counted in sri lanka after its most
