6:00 am
days before the presidents of iran russia and turkey hold three party talks into her run i have just been to syria so i reported back to. the government of the about my observations. first and foremost especially in my meeting with minister saadi we spoke about our concerns about it lip. it is clear that the risks of a military confrontation causing massive loss of life. this is is is very high and i told ministers that he thought that my appeal just like the u.n. secretary general and others is let's minimize let's. get these to the parties but then to minimize the loss of life grandy said syrian refugees who wonder if it's safe to go home are watching how the conflict plays out in its final stages it could send a message of confidence he said or not. in the last few days the kremlin has
6:01 am
labeled it live province a hotbed of terrorists that requires action. syrian government forces backed by russian air power have been moving into the area and armed groups fighting president bashar al assad are preparing for their last stand for damascus a decisive victory an adlib would book and a brutal civil war for to her on that would mean going from the expensive task of supporting an ally in large scale military operations to the more lucrative work of reconstruction. after a surprise visit to damascus earlier this week iran's foreign minister said rebuilding syria is an opportunity for iranian companies but preserving life is still a priority. shadow it the conditions in need layup are sensitive we're trying to deal with the situation there and expel terrorists with the least humanitarian costs we had talks in turkey to this and in a way also held talks in syria with the high ranking officials. of
6:02 am
the three countries due to meet into iran turkey is the only one hosting large numbers of syrian refugees support some of the armed fighters in adlib and is worried a military solution will mean more displaced civilians world leaders to fuel the civil war for years are already talking about returning refugees and reconstruction but the lives of people who lived in the cities these men need to be built are still at risk same bus ride be able to see a different. policy adviser in syria he joins us now via skype from damascus thanks for being with us and how fragile would you say the situation is in lebanon and what would be the the impact of a large scale operation there. you know i think the situation it live is incredibly fragile this just being a province that has been home to a large number of opposition groups groups with links to al qaida there's been over the seven years infighting between those different groups which is have
6:03 am
a huge impact on the civilian population and throughout the war there's been strikes and other military activity as well and that's the hospitals are not being operating the world health organization has said that the public hospitals are not functioning in it it's a water network that isn't functioning that means people have to rely on water being so you could see them by truck and it means that people are living in properties that don't have doors and windows or are living in shelters and chance you know that are overcrowded and during the course of the seven year war the population of the globe has basically doubled and that's been a huge strain on those resources so it's already a very difficult situation for people civilians living in it live many of whom have already been displaced in this conflict and at any major escalation of conflicts is likely to displace more people and at the moment they've they've got nowhere else to go what kind of preparations is oxfam been taking in case there is a sort of big displacement of people in case there is
6:04 am
a big offensive that it causes lots of casualties. so oxfam has teams in in aleppo and in hama and we're very much for to you know if people are displaced and do displaced voluntarily it has to be you know their choice as to where people flee and that's something that's not often been the case in this war but if if people do choose to flee into those areas we're there to help provide safe clean water helping people you know spread prevent the spread of diseases blocks other sanitation materials as well as blankets and clothing and other materials you know we will continue to be for access into it live to help the population there as well if we can access for all humanitarian organizations has been very tricky during during this conflict and we could see a need to make the call to all parties to the conflict so allow organizations like oxfam and others to get help to people that are in desperate need and i mean how would it different would you say this is going to be from previous large scale offenses i think that the challenge is just the scale of the huge number of people
6:05 am
that you know three million people living living in the you know over a million of those are people that have already been displaced you know the conditions are. you know incredibly incredibly poor people you know there's no sign at the moment of people where anyone contrary to so we've heard that you know the border with turkey is closed and people don't seem to be able to be able to free and escape and i think when you see the destruction that's taken place in cities like aleppo whether store rubble you know needing to be cleared of the moment in in eastern you know in duma whether the devastation is there if it happens on a scale where there are three million people impacted then that's going to be the biggest humanitarian suster of the of this crisis that you have to thank you very much indeed for your thoughts and something is much more ahead on this news after london. no amount of brutality no amount of information

6:22 am
there's something in the united states called the statute of limitations so basically there's a very limited window for any abuse that happened before two thousand and one where people can file criminal or even civil lawsuits so she's not only launching this investigation she's asking the state to change the laws international criminal court has ruled it can investigate the forced exodus of muslims from in ma as possible crimes against humanity and the i.c.c. says it has the jurisdiction as bangladesh is a member of the court even though i'm in mars not hundreds of thousands of ranges fled to bangladesh since august twenty seventeen aid agencies are warning of a growing health crisis and of call for more midwives to help pregnant women have been jammed jhoom has moved from cox's bazaar. during the hottest hour of the day in the world's largest refugee settlement these grow him traditional midwives are searching for a woman who needs their help. raji

reproductive health one of the biggest challenges has been trying to convince her hinge a women here to voluntarily go to clinics and that's because of the unrelenting persecution they faced in me and more it's left many of them distrustful and fearful of medical facilities like this one since august two thousand and seventeen saudia bedroom has come to the aid of numerous really enjoy women subjected to extreme physical psychological and sexual violence by members of me and mars military as plainly and painfully as she can she explains why the women she helps are so fearful. today the national boy these women are always scared that the doctors will kill their babies. despite the obstacles aid workers say providing services that aim to ensure not just safer pregnancies and childbirth but also options for family planning are already having an impact and we've seen a real increase in the number of women. i like to have for long acting

6:26 am
will be a decision by the us is the i.c.c. is unprecedented but it's not entirely surprising is unprecedented because no one's asked the question before. is deportation involved in both two states and it's kind of logical when you think about it i'm legally sound that you have two states and a border so to deport someone you need to move from one state to another so the i.c.c. was asked if that second stage as a member of the crime be them within the jurisdiction they agreed today that it is and to be only what's happened with a range of what are the implications i mean is this something that you think will set a precedent that can open up a large number of cases if there is definitely a precedent and countries who haven't signed the c.c. will be looking at this very carefully and i'm thinking about israel the united states and china who may have be involved in deportation themselves but the court went even further today and said that they the prosecutor may also have jurisdiction for persecution if people are moved over into the neighboring country
6:27 am
and other inhumane acts and that they're thinking of the deplorable conditions you were just showing in the camps in bangladesh and that since the rohingya are not allowed to return to my mar then the government is also responsible so other countries will be looking at us at him in terms of getting sort of accountability if i mean even if it does if he says it is a problem both in and on both sides because of deportation you need two states if the state that's as deport in the first place. doesn't recognize the i.c.c. but then it will let anybody be extradited for crimes against the people who. will that's. if an indictment is pursued then it's unlikely that you'll be able to go into the country to arrest anyone because you'd be breaching the country's sovereignty but it does mean. people who are indicted won't be able to travel any more wouldn't would be at risk of arrest any time they arrive in another country and this puts a lot of pressure on the mind maher military and the civil leadership so what's the
6:28 am
next step then after this this announcement so the next step for the prosecutor is to. within a reasonable time start an examination of the issue if they find which i'm sure that they will that the crimes have been committed then they will look to start an investigation and bring charges and but also the fact that since the crime is being committed in one country and has been expanded into burma my amar the prosecutors could also look at whether this deportation is part of the genocide process and in terms of what re might achieve with it i mean yes it sounds good but with the i.c.c. in the history of it they've made big arrests and actually in the end cases not gone through and it's not always felt as though they've achieved the kind of justice for people who needed it most at york to mistake that this actually is a different kind of situation they are so well b.o.c. they do have people they have indicted still at large and it's very difficult to
6:29 am
get to them but when this situation what it does now is puts pressure on the british government and other security council permanent members it now seems it's that tabling a resolution to refer the entire matter including genocide crimes against humanity the i.c.c. is the way forward and it would be much harder to veto what's hard to resist now that the i.c.c. is already looking at the issue so it might lead to some some progress with a resolution at the u.n. security council tell us we want to thank you very much indeed. until just recently . passed in a school in the occupied west bank is going to be demolished israel's supreme court says the school in the village of qana lamarr is an illegal structure and its ten year court battle to remain open is over orders are also threatening the entire bedouin village to make room for the expansion of more illegal israeli settlements and it's with reports. one day soon on their way to school these palestinian
