12:04 am
a whole has been meeting, but they've not been meeting about the latest air strike. they've been at strikes all week in yemen on whose he held territory, but they are in response to an attack, as you heard a moment ago on abu dhabi, the capital of u. e, where 3 people were killed on monday. and it's that attack alone that the security council discussed it, didn't discuss it under its yemen, a gender item, it discussed it under the issue of terrorism. and they focus just on the attack in abu dhabi and they should a statement the security council just on the attack in abu dhabi. after that meeting, the you, a ambassador, came to speak to reporters. she was flanked by 6 other ambassadors, including 3 of the permanent members, the u. k. the u. s. and france and lawn under sober when she spoke to reporters, wanted again, just to speak about what happened in abu dhabi at the start of the week. not about

12:06 am
been going on in the security council. yes, they say the security council should be condemning that attack that took place on abu dhabi. they say that was very wrong and it should not have that hoof is, should not have been targeting a civilian infrastructure in abu dhabi, but they say it's one sided. the security council also should be looking at what's happened in recent days, and particularly in recent hours and who the hell territory in yemen or civil warn him in his turn into the well that was she man, italian crisis infrastructure has been ruined the medical system. all but collapsed and millions are going hungry in the air, whilst poorest country a report by the end of element program estimates that the war killed 377000 people by the end of last year, both through violence and also indirectly because of hunger and disease, more than 5000000 people are on the brink of famine and 50000. others are living in famine like conditions around half the country doesn't have access to enough food.
12:07 am
conflict is also forced 4600000 yemenis to flee their homes in 3 and a half 1000 were displaced in the 1st 2 weeks of this year alone. while the saudi led coalition is cosmo, say the devastation. who these have used child soldiers and indiscriminately laid land mines across the country? strolling, it's now via skype is jacob burns, the communications advisor for yemen, iraq and jordan at doctors without borders. first of all, what are your colleagues in, sir? are they telling you about casualties? for me as strike there so. so yes. so what we know from our, from our colleagues inside the city is that last night around $230.00 there. and there was a what appears to be a saudi led coalition. air strike on the saw the city raymond, prison and, and following this apparent air strike. there have been dozens killed and hundreds wounded. we are doctors without borders, are working to support the album. hurry,
12:08 am
a hospital inside the city. and they've told us today that they received 70 killed from the air strike. and $138.00, a wounded. we know that inside the city there are other hospitals working, at least 2 of the hospitals working to, to treat the wounded from this event. and they also are, are, are very busy. the al gore maria hospital told us this morning that they receive so many wounded that they simply couldn't take any more. and have you been receiving any information from the port city of her day doubt where 3 children were among the dead there in her they though we did hear about air strikes, but the, the wounded from those air strikes were taken to a hospital that does not run by myself, so i'm afraid i don't have confirmation and how our hospitals coping with the casualties. they're overwhelmed and already because of the humanitarian crisis and
12:09 am
the effective blockade of yemen, they presumably don't have the medicine and supplies. they need to treat patients. yeah, i mean, as they said, oh go, maria this morning they, they had to stop receiving patients from this, our stripe, cuz it's simply been too many we doctors without borders immediately did some donations to dial going here and we're sending a truck now from, from sun our, the capitol told to saw the city with more medicine or more medical material to, to help them deal with this particular incident. but i, as you highlights, i mean there are these moments of intense violence within this war, but it's a war that's been dragging on for for 7 years now. and so what we see doctors without borders? yes, we respond to these, these, these punctual moments of violence. what we mostly deal with is simply that the
12:10 am
less dramatic, but the no less serious, long term crises that this war is causing for the health of the, of the many people tell me more about that long term crisis for the country. what does this war and the air strikes mean for civilians are not just in terms of injuries and loss of life, but also the way it is targeting schools and residential buildings and hospitals that are essential for the survival of the people there. yeah, i mean it's, it's certainly true that in yemen since the beginning of the war there, there have been a number of air strikes, a large number of air strikes that have targeted her hospitals. and just last week, we had reports inside the city that some, some water tanks essential for the supply of, of water to the city. had also been hit in air strikes and the car. and it is not
12:11 am
just the, the air strikes the, the overall crises that come with war, the economic crisis, the collapse in the health care system. this is something that's affecting yemenis across from lines greatly. and we've seen not particularly with covered over the last 2 years where cove it has been a major issue in yemen. it's, it's been a deadly disease for yemenis. and yet the, the health care system in the country has just not been able to, to respond to save the lives of many emmys, who have been infected by cove. it. all right, well thank you very much for joining us. take a benz from dr. that orders, thank you. at least 13 people are confirmed dad, after a huge explosion and west and garner, flattened over earl community. another $59.00 were injured after a truck carrying explosives collided with a motorcycle in a small mining town of

12:14 am
without a breakthrough overview. s and russia of agreed to keep negotiate in top. diplomats from both countries of met in geneva as tension spike over a russian troop build up near crane. the west is one of serious consequences of russia invades, although the kremlin denies its planning. an attack, or russia is amassed around a $100000.00 troops around ukraine's borders along with tanks. heavy artillery and armored vehicles. russian soldiers also deployed in the annexed region of crimea, and back thousands of fighters in to rebel held eastern provinces. ukraine's military has around $255000.00 per se now, and they're getting some west and support you. k as sent around 30 elite troops to train ukrainian soldiers along with surveillance aircraft and 2000 anti tank missile launchers. and then ukraine's biggest ally, the united states is sending $200000000.00 worth of military aid, including anti amo missiles and ammunition around $200.00 national guard soldiers also in ukraine to train local forces later members, estonia, latvia,
12:15 am
lithuania also announced they'll be providing ukraine with us made anti armor and anti aircraft missiles latasha, but reports now from geneva on the diplomatic push, and the divisions that remain at a hotel in geneva. the u. s. secretary of state and russian foreign minister arrived for crucial talks into diffusing tensions over ukraine. antony blinkin and sir gala for offset the tone early both said to break through was unlikely we don't expect to resolve your late work. i do as far as whether the policy i made over middleton is jewelry. with this issue, we are not expecting a breakthrough at this meeting either. we are expecting answers to our proposals. after the meeting law for offset moscow wanted a written response from the us to its demands, including
12:16 am
a guarantee that nato will not grant membership to ukraine. something blinkin has repeatedly called a nonstarter, but he said the u. s. would respond to russia if moscow addressed it's concerns and respected ukrainian sovereignty. we've been clear if any russian military forces move across ukraine's order, that's renewed invasion. it will be met with swift, severe, and the united response from the united states, and our partners and allies. u. s. intelligence says russia has already amassed at least a 100000 troops on its western border, and is moving weapons into allied belarus, north of ukraine. the u. s. and russian positions are clearly far apart to blinkin and laughter of making very little real progress. but the 2 men did agree to continue to pursue diplomacy as a way of d, escalating a crisis which could lead to war. it was on the shores of lake geneva,
12:17 am
the talks between the u. s. and russia led to the end of the cold war. decades on her old rivalries, have resurfaced. both sides accused each other regression and relations of dangerously deteriorated. the outlook for the coming weeks is turbulent. natasha butler al jazeera geneva, as we had there in natasha's report, russia wants her written response to it. security demands from the west. a main one is a nato commitment that ukraine will never be allowed to join the defense alliance. nato argues that countries should be free to choose their own alliances. but russia wants a ban on nato deploying weapons and forces in central and eastern european countries that join the alliance after 1997. these include estonia, poland, and the czech republic. nato says the demand place is russia security concerns above those of the former soviet republics. russia also ones intermediate range missiles, banned in europe,
12:18 am
sang nato missiles stored in ukraine would be within striking distance of moscow. nato concedes this could be a point of compromise. so early i spoke, spoke to olga to cardio john list, a non resident fellow at the center, fear p policy analysis and asked her where the people in ukraine think war is on the horizon. the mood is increasingly anxious because the signals that are coming are not very encouraging. it looks like the diplomatic exports are not actually lead into major breakthrough. and the russian should continue to arise to ukrainian borders. and in written, de russian troops on the territory of bell rose and according to some reports, their station in me or 9 p kilometers from the cranium, capital k of. so that's quite a close distance and that makes people quite anxious. you know, here in k, a majority of people have never witness date and like more like something this time
12:19 am
to happen even in the eastern ukraine. and of course the prospect could suddenly become something very close and could hit you directly. something that is really scary and that makes people feel anxious. ukrainians are ready to resist and are ready to fight. they are not ready to compete and independence of the country. however, it will be very hard for you to fight without the support of the western countries and western allies. does this escalation, perhaps mark a more permanent shift in the sense that even if it is resolved through diplomacy? present person is making it clear that ukraine belongs in russia's all bit well, it's absolutely an intention of president to 10 to a re established fears of influence in europe. and he has made it clear also in his article, published last july in which he claimed that ukraine in russia were brotherly
12:20 am
nations, were the same people. and in which he questioned ukraine's rights to exist as an independent. and so it looks like he is this, what is he doing now? this is the continuation of his beliefs in his policy towards denying ukraine. it's the sovereignty and his trying also to get that to be accepted by other countries of the world when major followers such as the united states. so far. however, the u. s. and in nato countries, they refused to accept this new sphere of influence in europe. and they said that it's, it's not acceptable that one country dictates other countries. what should they do? what's aligned, says should they should be in, and what borders of the countries can look like. they continue when they're
12:21 am
aggressive referee. they continue making ultimatums, and they threaten with military force. if their demands are not accepted. is there a fear where you are that even if the international community believes in ukraine sovereignty in principle, that the response will eventually be dictated particular from european countries by economic and geopolitical interests. yet the reason the fear that the unity might be lacking among the western countries. and while some countries have demonstrated that they are serious about supporting ukraine and here, i mean you k, which stands for example, defensive meant to ukraine this week. here. i mean, you as that has been supported in ukraine also with providing military assistance and with providing financial assistance and training. on the other hand, there are european heavy weights, a big power, such as germany and france that has been reluctant so far to show support to
12:22 am
ukraine, that goes beyond mere rewards. for example, germany, it refused to provide mil, military assistance to grant. and it also is very reluctant to stop the nor stream to crucial gas pipeline bypass in ukraine, which the crown and uses as it do political weapon. now northwest syria, frost heavy, rain and snow fall as damage more than 70 camps for internally displaced people. almost 3000 tents have been affected by this, leaving thousands of families struggling to find shelter or to stay warm. the united nations is warned about flooding when the snow starts to melt. millions of people are displaced within syria, largely because of devastating civil war. their sylvia and dana is the deputy director of programs for syria respond to the international rescue committee and says that are huge needs in syria and more sources needed to help people. this is
12:23 am
a particularly difficult situation and we as a your see together with our partners in in c, they are really working to try and speed up support we de winter is ation kits. normally we try and support the population by replacing tens, bringing them warm clothes. last stake, maybe to over the top of their houses or tense. we try to also support to with cassia, that gives them the possibility to choose what they really want, what they really need to support their families. few well stoves. i mean there's a number of way we can, we can support them. unfortunately, right now the, the need is high and we really try our best to prioritize. and you need to concede that, that they need this not only shelter they need is also hospital. they need is protection . there are huge protection needs in syria that they need is related to child
12:24 am
protection for, for the security where a lot of people are still do not have food to eat every day. so we, we try to balance all of us. we try to balance and definitely we call the international community and donors to concede that it can see that these because there's a, there's a lot more that we could do. if more resources will be dedicated to c, d r support and other developments has been an ice hill attack in syria, ondemand storm detention center and has the car and briefly fried some of that fighters. kurdish forces who control the area, say, a car bomb struck the prison gates. as detainees began a riot, security forces killed at least 40 gun and about 90. i sell fighters who escaped or recaptured by cutting forces in while 11 iraqi soldiers have been killed in an attack by iso fighters. this happened in the middle of the night at an army
