a northern cities of telecom and the sorry pool. the town is also came control of ship again and there hunch, charlotte bennett, reports from campbell got hung up on the sun rising. and what would become a store day in a scan? stone. first the telephone into condos. one of the country's biggest cities and a gateway to the north. i just don't want to. beyond group talk briefly 20152016. the full us special forces pushed in spite is out. no, america cannot stand in the way 3 by 3, the television, and when the city so. so did the entire problem kept it the main square. it's 2 pm on sunday, and the whole area is in our hands. the government is doing close propaganda, saying it hasn't fallen that you can see our flag. the gun air force responded with

this is not being planning counter offenses using special forces and africa and us it strikes. if you focused on a given sliver of time at any given moment, a problem may have fallen under the telephone control, but i think the situation remains completely fluid. the telephone spokesman told al jazeera at the armed group naval wanted a war. our response is clear. we want a peaceful solution of the issue that we we waited for for the last one year. but now the taliban has moved into cities. a new stage of urban warfare is on the horizon. if the government wants to take them back, hundreds of thousands of civilians. risk being caught in the crossfire. charlotte bellis. ouch is era cobble? under there is exclusive access behind taliban lines and the southern province of
helmand fighters control loose to the territory. as i try to take over the regional capital lashonda, eunice, i'd seen reports from the district of garish while there has been fight in lasker god. in the recent days. other parts of the hillman province are firmly under taliban control. i only 20 kilometers, separate the city of kandahar from the stronghold of the taliban, which will plus signs of recent battle. arriving in the town of british, the 20 bon fighter asks us to get out of our car. at 1st sight, things here do not look different from the government control areas, but then you see the tiny ben fighters, the only ones allowed to use radio handsets or escort kill us. there is no
telephone service or internet for security reasons. in the town you see tiny bar flags everywhere. shopkeepers say it's a sign of their legions to the movement. we noticed a clear chinese before the villagers could not come to the market. now they can on the market is crowded and women can shop and there's nothing to we spoke to one of the shop customers as well. what was that on the 1st before the taliban it was difficult for us to live under the authority of the government. now we are free, our children feed us and we are safe families. throughout our visit were quoted by tommy been presented to the older people we spoke to tend to praise a tiny band and its role in providing security. they will come implementation of a stomach close in the very conservative southern point is done away
from the camera. some young men did not hide their resentment, absence of telephone and internet services and their fear of a lack of a freedom in the future. at the district hospital, it is business. as usual. in this war, $600.00 babies were born during last month. the period that the taliban has been in control. eventually, since the arrival of the taliban there has been no change in plans. we were received by the health officials and they told me not to change anything. there was a unified health law and we were asked to abide by as of this year. i don't see that a district point and the points like it, the tiny band controls doing this on the ground of why little they are going to government rule the sky and, and why the tiny been phase once and even 16 it's fighters said they are ready for all possibility of the for now they are conducting police and duties. what do you
know and your battle could be low? me? was this the, the, i don't know that we prefer that they'd be a peaceful solution to the conflict and the current crisis and have gone to some if the government side insists on fighting and does not commit to reconciliation. the next step will be to attack the state capital. the electricity in the area is provided by this nearby, done built by the soviets and restored by the americans. like everything else in this town of 70000 people. for now, it's run by the taliban in a city major 0 kilman problems of anytime. or phase of water which and to tell a been ruined parts of afghanistan and will mean for residents, particularly women and children. addison, jewish is women's rights activists. she left off got on at the age of 15 and now lives in canada. i did join us live skype from vancouver. thanks very much need for being with us. i wonder what you're hearing from relatives and friends in areas
that have been taken over by the taliban? about what life is like than a yeah, thank you. thank you for having me. i am connected to the people back home, especially my peers, my relatives and my friends that i went to school with. and i've been in contact with them and i have been getting updates from them through facebook. and the situation is just worse than they have ever experienced. the, the problem that i am from ne, ganeth on, which is called the heart of the province, has been over overrun by the and searching groups that has been captured by them this past day. and right now everything is under their control. it is truly heartbreaking. women have been hiding and basements and very like holes so that the bellman birth can can protect them from a protection for them. and of course schools have been banned and,
and there is no option for any woman to even get out of their homes and to, to go and complete their basic needs on it on a daily basis. so it has been a concern for everybody and socially for myself as someone who have experienced war in afghanistan, and also being someone that have experienced like life over this part of the world . it has been a very big concern for myself to, to, to witness my peers experienced this while i'm here living a privileged life. what i mean, you mentioned some of the restrictions, what are the sorts of restrictions are being put in place by the, by the taliban. of course, like the, the current all upon or worse than the, than the pre 9 a lot. and then the pre 911, tall upon as we all know the pre 911 paula bon had band education access to the justice for the woman and dana, son and, and right now, just what was before and even worse, every tullet as a police, a prosecutor and
a judge himself and a day they can arrest, punish, and kill anyone at any place at any time. of course women being the main victim and they have currently we have stories of women being killed, rapes, and, and forced to marry outside outside her. well, because they to complete her, her religion, which is very, very much against the religion of islam. and of course they can be a completely different picture of it. and so currently women cannot go out and i'm pretty sure many women have prepared and bought that book cause and got ready to, to go outside with the matter. i'm with males rela, 10, and i have people also have women tried to escape from these areas or is it? is that even possible in the station? for some families, my family included my extended family. my relatives have sent their woman to 2
areas where, which is considered it's not safe, but it's at least outside the city. so into like they're like, hidden in basements and outside. so the male relatives are taking control and are protecting the homes. while women are away at if they can go to couple of course, which is not safe, but it's at least not under the capture of the taliban. and so yeah, they are trying to send their problem members, especially women outside the province than any problems that have been captured by the tele, one right now. i mean the tell about us saying that they didn't want this war that has all the reaction against what the government did because they didn't implement the piece to watch what you was your reaction to that line. they're taking oh, these this terrorists, paula bonds. they did take the terror violence and destruction caused by the tall on the other extremist groups should not be dealt. it's completely. it's not an issue. and honestly, i to me like them saying this,
like using the name of religion as a way to, to, to, to claim that they're supporting the country and they're bring peace is honestly, it's a joke. it's it, they have no religion. they have that one that i practice and that they practice is completely different. and so them claiming that they are bringing pieces. it's very, very different because we have seen the evidence they have shown as they have provided us so much evidence since 2001 before 2001 what they did. tompkins and what they have been doing in the past decade. so i descended, thank you very much indeed for joining us. thank you. thank you. going, i'll put on 0. this news. our as wildfires scorch, california greece and turkey view and warns extreme weather is only getting worse. take you to a doctor, village saved by a different system in recent floods, but kind of keep up with climate change. and this can, you know, achieve something that hadn't been done in 41 years. general explain more.

say the scientists, unless something is done. and this they say, is just a hint of what could be to come. humanity has lit the fuse and humanity must put it out before it's too late. i talked to 65 year old farmer below couldn't. he tells me the only clothes he has left are the ones he standing in has said, we lost everything there is nothing left of our house. if the same folly neighbors 0, the tractor, the whole, the shovel, every tool we had is gone. everything we built up in 70 to 80 years is gone. i have all of it disappeared in 20 minutes. it came and went like a c wave from turkey to grease its been a furious fight against the fires. extraordinary temperatures sparking the tragedy in all these regions. wildfires happen every year, but never on this scale. it's the same in northern california where fire blazing
over hundreds of square kilometers, destroying communities across the world, extreme weather is building and ferocity just last month. unprecedented floods in germany and belgian devastated towns and swept away roads. more than 200 were killed, with many, still missing. and the science shows its fossil fuel emissions that have made these events worse. manmade climate change. the truth is, this is a story that people that really want to hear the reality perhaps too much for people to deal with to take in. but what's becoming increasingly clear, is it the consequences of doing nothing at all? is infinitely worse for everybody lose. john jogan has been helping with the rescue effort. here in southern turkey. he says the fires response after months of drought followed by an intense heat wave on to lays famous for its long lasting rain. and these last few there is no, is in this year in mos in opera on the may,
