10:48 pm
of the challenges faced by journalists and the donald trump we are fighting the fake tears fake moaning fi enemy of the people through the eyes of a federal white house correspondent what do you base your legs only sales are down the press is not after truck after the fact we're not the enemy of the people we are the people usa the current crop of. truth is that anywhere on jersey ago. turkey sends more tanks to its southern border as it begins joint patrols with russia and northeastern syria. and again ominous of a problem in the sense al jazeera live from doha in so coming up lebanese banks

reopened for the 1st time following 2 weeks of protests but customers are facing restrictions on transfers abroad. those in favor. say. the u.s. house of representatives votes to proceed to the next public phase of its impeachment inquiry into president donald trump last. decades old trees falling in sierra leone as its cash strapped government tries to replace lost mining revenue. turkish and russian troops have started joint patrols in northeastern syria it follows a deal between the 2 countries to remove kurdish fighters from the area with a so-called safe zone and ancora wants to create runs along the turkish syrian border that extends about 30 kilometers into the syrian side the russian and
10:50 pm
turkish joint patrols will run about 10 kilometers deep along the border from jobless to maliki let's go to our correspondent there he is joining us live from shan or for that's near the turkish syrian border so what he hearing about the 1st day of patrols this is a significant development in the war. it is indeed elizabeth because this is the 1st instance where the russians and the turks will on the ground very fire that the. is pulling out from all those areas inside the sieves now russia has given reassurances to the turkish government that $34000.00 as defiance is mainly from the white b.g. with tria to turkey says that it will only make sure that that does really happen in fact when it sends its own teams on the ground to verify that this is happening so this is what is happening now on the ground east of us and i mean is where the
10:51 pm
joint patrols will start all the way towards al maliki on the border with iraq there is also to the west of. places like kabbani like men biz and like. and in fact the vet's where the turks would like to ensure that all s.d.o. fighters have but at least managed to put out east of the euphrates here is a problem though in those areas when the as the of fighters were retreating they struck a deal with the syrian government allowing the syrian army to take over some areas so that could pose some enormous challenges for the turkish government which insists in a safe zone there must be no presence of the as the and if and it's hosted it was recently taken over by the syrian government that could lead to further friction in the near future between the russians between the syrian government yeah and to turkish military and we've heard from the syrian president bashar assad he's not happy about. about turkey's involvement in syria what's he been saying.
10:52 pm
it's not happy because elizabeth has been saying over the last few months this just about a month sort of time before his army takes over and regain control of all the territory in north northern syria now with a safe zone that changes the reality on the ground so to give you an idea about what's happening in the area that's russia's from. tell us the line is a new tattoo which is not by the syrian opposition the syrian national army with the backing of turkey that creates a new political and military realities on the ground glass that all save zone in the area which is going to create enormous challenges for the syrian government and this explains why but that is saying that in the near future if the turkish army does not put out the force comes to worse it's going to be a war let's listen to what a solace that had to say. the hostile youth the whole the syrian land is one and the theater of operations is one from the far south to the far north the turk is
10:53 pm
the american agent in this war we were fighting this aged turkey everywhere and whenever it struggled to do what it wanted it left no option but war this is obvious but i say we will need to keep open the opportunity for the political process in all its forms and if it didn't produce results then we consider them an enemy and who will get to war there is no other option for them to. you know as all eyes are all safe zone area if you go back all the way east towards labor and toward what sort it's was and let's out here the situation has been tense there's been intense fighting between the opposition and with the syrian army the opposition is trying to prevent the army from taken over those areas it looks like president bush says he's determined that it's time he has it up or should see his edging closer and closer his aim is to take over if that happens the rebels will
10:54 pm
lose this last stronghold in syria russian thank you for that for now that's the latest live and shanower thank you we're going to move on to other news now and after weeks of protests and roadblocks across lebanon schools and banks have reopened their tolls but there's frustration about limits imposed on daily with trolls and some bags restricting how much money can be sent to broad protest as main while maintaining their demand for the entire government to resign let's go to our correspondent stephanie decker she's joining us live from the capital beirut and we've been hearing from has been the leader has on the throne the stephanie what's he been saying. this is very good news 1st speech since the resignation of prime minister saad i'd be. writing a bit of a more conciliatory tone than his previous speeches where a lot of protesters were angry at his accusations of their protests actually being
10:55 pm
foreign funded basically what he's saying he's also addressing some of the accusations that hezbollah is the most political powerful political force in this country that wasn't against the collapse of this government because it was has been the let it boarding to no solid but because of the dangers of a political vacuum in this country but when it comes to that vacuum there is still no answers because at the moment yes you have the resignation of the prime minister it is now a caretaker government but everyone is waiting for this is what the protesters are waiting. or is for what's called these binding parliamentary consultations which is what the president didn't address last night and that basically means a new name for prime minister so at the moment you're still in the stalemate so yes you have that on the talking to the streets saying that the protesters are should continue to protest but they need to adjust their methods he's calling them out for using persis because some of the chaunce that have evolved of the last 2 weeks here very much using swear words against the politicians and things like that says god was giving them and that's it and how to behave that same way but the big question
10:56 pm
remains there is still no wants as to what any sort of interim government is going to look like and yes protesters will tell you that they are giving it a couple of days but they're still there wants and stephanie what do we expect in the meantime reporting 2 weeks of protests a prime minister who has resigned but finally banks and schools have reopened so what happens while people wait. yes so as you mentioned today that the banks reopening their doors people did queue up but there was an en mass panic if you will the schools universities are slowly following suit and also you have a back and forth a little bit when it comes to the road closures but in general life is returning back to normal but that doesn't mean that this political crisis is by any means over you could almost argue that it's only just beginning because you're going to have to have these politicians now agreeing on a name for prime minister are they going to agree is the public are the protesters
10:57 pm
going to agree. the president hinted that this government could be made out of nonpolitical 9 people this is what the the people want by technocratic these are nudes of russians up in the are nothing has been decided yet nothing has been hinted yet so people will tell you that they're impatient they want to have they don't want the politicians to play with time they want to ensure is that is coming at the moment we understand behind the scenes the president is talking to. try and get those names far down as the prime minister the prime minister will that have to be charged with forming a government then the question is will the people of greece is certainly still a big question marks are going ahead thank you stephanie that is stephanie decker with the latest live in beirut. now after weeks of hearings behind closed doors the impeachment process targeting u.s. president donald trump is moving into a new public phase the house of representatives which is controlled by tribes
10:58 pm
rivals the democrats watcher to advance and formalize the investigation a for a phone call between trump and ukrainian president for not a man selenski is at the center of the inquiry tromso accused of withholding military aid to pressure ukraine into investigating political rival joe biden and if the house ultimately votes to pursue impeachment the trial would happen in the republican controlled senate and trump's removal from office would require a 2 thirds majority vote among fences so hopefully as we go forward with this the clarity of purpose a clarity of procedure a clarity of fact a clarity of troops it's about the truth it's about the constitution we will do so in a way that brings people together that is healing rather than dividing they are trying to impeach the president of the united states less than 13 months before an
10:59 pm
election based on anonymous walsall blow works with no firsthand knowledge who has a bias against the president it's reported that the whistleblower worked with vice president biden and on it goes. the american people see this for what it is because the american people are fair people they are just people they are people with common sense and they will not tolerate this well let's go now to our correspondent white house correspondent company health who is joining us live from washington d.c. the day after the votes and so naturally the president has been has be busy tweeting about this company what's he been saying yeah he continues to make his case to the american public and picking up off that last comment from the representative jim jordan there the u.s. president very much appealing to those kitchen table issues in terms of his defense centrally in the last minute he just tweeted that the stock market is up big he also noted that there are 128000 jobs that have been added to the american
11:00 pm
workforce in the last month these are the types of issues he's trying to appeal to the ordinary voter in order to make his case since he knows that in the house of representatives it's going to be a challenge the fact of the matter is that there has been a parade of trump administration officials who have said they were uncomfortable with the phone call between the u.s. president and the ukrainian president that the u.s. president may have overstepped his bounds in terms of withholding aid suggesting to withhold military aid in exchange for looking for the promise of an investigation into one hit of his political rivals the u.s. president also pointing to those who are conducting their constitutional oversight responsibilities in the house of representatives namely the chair of the intelligence committee adam schiff tweets that adam schiff is on a power trip many witnesses were called if you had problems with a call.
