9:10 pm
different indeed. and now you are threatened to introduce actions against home and for what, because you do not wish to accept the refugees that are seeking to come to you to the european union. it's time to stop shifting the blame here. we're going to just the un refugee agency says it's alarm that the situation on the border and says thousands of honorable people must not be used for political purposes. or challenger polls that you've got in the middle of every humanitarian crisis. there are always human faces, and these are the children, women and men stuck in a deadly stand off on the poland. better roost border thousands and now and make shift camps along the razor. wire humanitarian group say they're lacking food and medicine. social media footage from recent days shows several 100 refugees and migrants escorted by that a russian security heading towards poland. the large numbers have escalated a crisis that's been boiling for many weeks. many, if they can get into the,
9:11 pm
you don't want to stay in poland where they know they're not welcome. no, we are going to get money. gemini died, no former month, thousands of feet entering the plot through better roost at 1st by lithuania and latvia. now may need 3 pollings, the e u accuse is better. russian leader, alexander lucas shanker, of orchestrating ways of migrants and refugees in retaliation for sanctions imposed on his government for violent crackdowns on the opposition. on monday, poland said it had withstood attempts by migrants to force their way across the border. or 30 of accused batteries have tried to spark a major confrontation and mobilizing soldiers and close the border crossing. prime minister mateusz more of it, ski has been visiting troops. who would think 23 months ago that we will be dealing with actions that are characterized by the use of human shields. look a shame because machine uses civilian weapons in
9:12 pm
a hybrid wall. what we can see today, a new methods, and you are a passing against the nova mental but potent authorities have been accused of illegal behavior to forcibly transporting people. they've caught back across the border rather than offering humanitarian assistance and the chance to apply for protection. as being little coordinated action from the you, germany is urging member states to do more russia, a close ally and advisor to vent a roost says the crisis as a result of the western policies in the middle east. and urges it to help batteries and know you're still gonna get us to the root of the problem is the policy carried out by western countries, including nato's and u. member states regarding the middle east and north africa as they were trying to impose a western style, a better life. several people along the border have already died from exposure. there could be many more to come, rory, talents out his era. boycheck,
9:13 pm
she's been ski, is the editor in chief of his god in fight. a political car says magazine. he says the situation is being spoken concern among local communities. boland is using and mobilizing all the service men at the disposal that are necessary to contain the situation. the parliament has also adopted the bill to erect physical barrier. this physical barrier on the border, 400 kilometer long border with bellows has been just endorsed. so it's actually what, what the country can do to protect the border. what it could do, and it's not yet to doing, is providing visible assistance to those who actually get through. poland has declared that it has new laws prohibiting those people who
9:14 pm
cross illegally from accessing as island immediately, there are still pushback on the border and also there is a lack of lack of presence of journalists because officials deny access to the, to the zone for the for the press to be able to, to cover the report. definitely, this is a concern for the whole country as societies also showing very visible signs of solidarity. notably, people in the area in the border area of several municipalities are organizing how you have activities and jose actively trying to assist to those people. but at the same time, there was a pushback law. so when those people are assisted and when they are healthy enough, they're being put again at the border and they are not being led through into their destination that most often is germany. a caution sudan has ordered that internet services be restored more than 2 weeks after most were blocked,
9:15 pm
the national consumer protection council, food telecommunication company. so if the shut down, they faced arrests. if the court's decision isn't implemented, the outage was imposed to prevent protests and a campaign of civil disobedience after the military takeover on october. the 25th or so sir, joins me alive from call to me rousseau. so the court has made this order. will it be followed through all? will the police adhere to that order? well as of now, despite their course decision or of asking the authorities to immediately put an end to his internet blackout that the internet is not restored yet in a very few place or in the company have access to the internet. people are still not able to receive any signal on their forms and the other the wisest that due to this internet blackout and the restrictions on the internet menu of the that the

newspapers are not able to conduct the printing works and the several, the digital platforms are completely shut down, shut down. so the internet is not available as of now yet. and the government did the army after the military takeover on 25th of october, foot a foot and internet blackout or across the company are says than is still here despite the call is at the despite the court decision, it's not implemented as of now. but the, the reason that army took such a decision was to reduce the ability of the protesters, tu, tu, tu, tu, tu tube. but to conduct the mass protest against the military. and to a certain extent, they have succeeded because for, for the protest, because the cities have been very much a dis connected. so the lie, the internet restrictions on making the life extremely difficult. here, as i said, the court decision is there, but it's not implemented yet. so what next did the national consumers are
9:17 pm
protection council says that if the court decision is not implemented, they will now sue directly the director of generals and the managers of these 3 telecom companies and asking the court to release another were the off of that the address of this managers, however, whether that's possible or not, it's a different issue because in 2019 there was a similar case. and when did the popular protest, i guessed austin prime at the outset. at bare president bashir were in place, and there was an intern at black or forced taught the 7 days and the that the, the national consumers protection caused by death. i'm also sure there's telecom companies and the court released a, a similar word by that time. and it was, and it fun, but now there are different dynamic in the company and concealing the influence and the whole control of our army is chief, will hands full control over the security forces. it's very much unlikely that the
9:18 pm
security forces without his approval wolf or a bill will be able to arrest the managers of this 3 telecom companies. and so 3rd are in carto. thank you. 90 moorhead on the news are including reaction from baghdad is pro iranian faction sign and deal with the government to resolve for post election crisis. the un climate summit and glasgow, and looks at why girls and women are disproportionately affected by global warming . and, and for some bad news with his woke up with and he will be here with that story. ah, pro iran fractions in iraq have reached an agreement with the government in baghdad to ease tensions of election results. comes days after what was described as an assassination attempt against prime minister must suffer. academy armed drones

9:22 pm
a victim of the why had in baghdad. thank you while sob. a. lucy is the middle east analyst and it's tumble. he says there are signs that the pro iran militia was behind the attack that had been many threats by militia leaders against iraq, your prime minister, especially after the killing of some protesters. the 2nd one is that the drones, the analysis of the drones that have been used to conduct this attack have been analyzed. and there are 2 similar drones that were used in effects against us forces. so it's pretty much confirmed that they did conduct this attack. what as it goes, well, basically just pressure and the political establishment and to taking them into consideration and take them, taking them seriously. because they do want to be part of the force coming
9:23 pm
iraqi government. it's going to affect them both financially and politically. and militarily, if they're not, so it's basically just the sign or a black, a warning to the prime minister and the political establishment at large. that we do need to be taken seriously and be considered part of this political coming. political solution or formation of theory of military says, israel has carried out as strikes, targeting central and western provinces, wounding 2 soldiers, stay tv showed explosions. it says a syrian defense system shooting down israeli missiles, syria says the war plain 5 missiles while flying over 11 on a british based monitoring group says raids hit near a military airport in homes. province. sanctions are running high in the to new z and city of are going to off the death of the demonstrator in over not protests. the public prosecutor's office says an investigation is underway demonstrate to say

the protest to suffer cases of the police volunteer gas. the terry ministry denies that residents are against the reopening of a landfill sites that was closed earlier this year. the dispute was seen as a 1st test for the government appointed by president. so i seized power in july. the all bank says things the dismal and getting worse, the people in gaza and a report on the state of the palestinian economy. it says unemployment and the besieged trip stands at 45 percent. is particularly concerned about the high dependency on social assistance unemployment in the occupied west bank is 17 percent of the world bank warns the palestinian authorities challenging financial situation has lifted unable to borrow from domestic lenders. the well bank expects overall growth of 6 percent and the palestinian economy this year. but says this will likely so in 2022 kept on shankar is the world bank country director for the
9:25 pm
west bank and gaza. explains why the officials in gaza and the west bank need to reduce the budget deficits this year, around the fi vaccination rates. there's been an uptick in the economy. so there has been certainly a rebound for up to 6 percent. what is going to happen is that the, the still are struggling with a huge deficit off $1400000000.00. and while, while the wind has been grow, it's not sustainable with a huge deficit. so that's the reason we are projecting that is going to come down to 3. but then unless the whole huge deficit is addressed, the palestinians do not have access to the international market. they do not have that currency and they do not have a monetary policy. so they instruments, we still have a very limited so hence we would be would need support from donors,
9:26 pm
from the government of israel. and certainly the bank is doing is bit and there's also actions which the palestinian authority, which is, which is doing government. they have bought some extremely important reforms recently, which we need to give them credit. i'm at the same time. we also need international donors. that's been a huge drop off in international donor assistance this year in particular. so i think that all 3, all parties needs to come together to be able to support the palestinian people and increasingly tense political deadlock and both near her to governor is raising concerns that the country could go back to war. it's been nearly 3 decades since it's 3 main ethnic groups signed a us back piece deal now demands for more autonomy from bosnia sub community is threatening to unravel it. jamal a shell, send this report from sorry, over it's been a gloomy few weeks in bosnia herzegovina,
