3:03 am
aggression committing daily massacres against the yemeni people. the conflict in yemen pits houthi rebels from the north backed by iran and troops loyal to former president ali abdullah saleh against yemeni government forces back in two thousand and fourteen the who sees and their allies took control of the yemeni capital sana'a. but the conflict widened early the following year when a saudi led coalition of arab countries state done with airstrikes to back up humans government in two and a half years the saudi led coalition has launched thousands of a strikes the same a strikes that have been repeatedly criticized by the united nations for disregarding the number of civilians killed and return who sees and their allies have fired dozens of missiles into saudi territory last week who's the spokesman told al-jazeera that who's the fighters would target any country that attacks them.
3:04 am
of those that target yemen as far as we are concerned are fair military target for ballistic missiles any country that hits yemen militarily will be targeted. yemen was already the poorest country in the region before the war nearly two and a half years of fighting is lifted on the brink of collapse a crippled infrastructure abject poverty seven million people close to starvation and since april the world's worst outbreak of cholera the u.n. says around ten thousand people have been killed and at least forty thousand wounded mostly from saudi laid is strikes this latest missile attack deep into saudi territory will likely escalate this long running end the conflict medium hond al-jazeera. or saudi arabia's new anti corruption committee has claimed its first casualties within hours of its creation eleven princes and dozens of former ministers have been detained according to their beer television the committee was
3:05 am
set up to tackle royal abuse and stealing of public funds meanwhile the royal order has enforced a key cabinet reshuffle first out on king solomon's royal orders is the minister of the national guard prince with their bin of the bin abilities one of the most prominent princes prince met there who is the son of the late king abdullah and was the last seen the a royal in government not closely connected with king sylmar or his son the new heir to the throne also out is the minister of economy and planning are there have been mohamed faca in and engineer and a former mayor. and the commander of the navy of the low been sold. and has been ordered to retire as there is a senior political analyst marwan bashara says that the heir to the throne crown prince mohammed bin sylmar is flexing his political muscles in ways not seen before in recent saudi history. it's yet another reshuffle right in the kingdom of
3:06 am
saudi arabia and at the heart of it is the crown prince mohammed bin so man who is clearly the man with power in hands being able to change things around within the kingdom and not only changing people but changing policies changing direction and taken on beast major mager a multi hundreds of billions of dollars projects like a new city like privatizing a bit of a run called the main oil company in saudi arabia so all in all he's taken a very aggressive stance that we haven't seen before in the modern history of saudi arabia where a new king or a new regime comes in not only changes cabinet not only changes a bit of the structure so that it is a new era of a new king but now we have the king of the conference really changing decades
3:07 am
centuries long tradition within the kingdom so the latest reshuffle today is really a part of a longer. change dramatic change in the kingdom where the new crown prince young inexperienced settling government. and he's been called ambitious as well as reckless by the various outlets in the west that are really closer so your review when you talk to i mean many analysts ever since he was appointed both in and out of the country i mean he must be ruffling feathers within the royal family and with that common dangers as well i think he's certainly a rocking the enemies within within the kingdom and certainly those who have been you know centers of power within the kingdom look at the last crown prince he got rid of you know if you all remember he was the crown crown prince or deputy crown prince now has become a crown prince and got rid of a man who's been heading security and so. in charge of the campaign against terror
3:08 am
a very close friend of the united states look at the new man he just could of met i've been abdulla who is the head of the national guard his father former king abdullah before he became king he was also head of the national guard so since its stablish meant in one thousand nine hundred eighty two the national guard has been held by abdullah and his son now the new crown prince just put all of that aside and is doing his own a new assignment so he's really changing things around but not only within the kingdom so right before he made his major first changes in order to become crown prince he launched the war in yemen when he was defense minister so all in all while he's making major shifts and dramatic shifts with indicating them he's also making them within the region and of course that leads us neatly to the next question which is this attack apparently against saudi arabia missiles being launched from yemen's territory vis is a wake up call is it not for about the whole policy in the yemen which way do they
3:09 am
go now today we saw this new dramatic change in what i would like to call or what the even they they're calling a new balance of terror between the saudis and the whole thing's whereby the whole thing is not able to shoot ballistic missiles not only the goal is a thousand kilometers towards mecca but also more than that longer than that towards riyadh towards the can khaled airport around riyadh so really the capacity of the home fees you know a renegade or if you were a rebel group in yemen able to do that kind of action to take that kind of step against saudi arabia is a proof that the saudis or the crown prince in particular has made a major fumble in his war in yemen and that this is a stretch to failure for so with the arabia and yemen if that's the case with saudi arabia looking for some semblance of peace within that. part of the region it's all
3:10 am
flown into calles by the lebanese prime minister who happens to be inside the arabia and offers his resignation outside of his own country creating the big question marks about stability in lebanon and who are the really big game players in a country that's been racked historically with civil war and political strife and who really are those people in charge of a country that is so close to some of the major conflicts of the moment specially syria in the end of the day what we have is saudi arabian i was trying to act not only in yemen not only in syria not only defending itself but also bringing lebanon on into the whole new theater of proxy conflict and war with iran i think that's unfortunate why it's because if the region falls into a proxy conflict between iran and saudi arabia no one is going to win and everyone is going to lose and i'm not just talking about the soldiers and their brain is
3:11 am
employed by the lebanese the yemenis the iraqis the syrians and so on so forth and we've seen the results look at iraq hundreds of thousands of casualties look at syria hundreds of thousands of casualties look at yemen tens of thousands of casualties in lebanon it had it already a civil war now with mike in third to an unknown why because it won and so eurabia are fighting their proxy wars why is saudi arabia is taking the offensive defense if you will in lebanon iran is acting in a very cool manner really expanding its influence on all these regions and apparently insisting that once hezbollah fight finishes its fight in syria along with iran that it will be taking control within lebanon that's not acceptable to the the lebanese represented by side with harry and others and hence all your neighbors taken advantage of that taking lebanon into this new theater of proxy conflicts in the region so all in all very dangerous for lebanon very dangerous for the eastern mediterranean. credibly dangerous for the arab world and as we've seen
3:12 am
from the shooting of missile that we're just talking about it's also dangerous for saudi arabia dangerous for regional security was we heard lebanon's prime minister has resigned so are the remains the televised address from the saudi capital riyadh saying that he was stepping down because he was in fear of being assassinated in a statement who really also lashed out at iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah accusing both of the stabilizing the region well the story from. it was an announcement if you were expecting. me i hereby announce my resignation as prime minister from the lebanese government known as the will of the lebanese is stronger and that determination is steadfast and will overcome any attempts to impose any custodianship over them from powers either inside or outside our country long live the people of lebanon so they have a reason as ignatius was made from the saudi capital riyadh in
3:13 am
a televised address you also sharply criticized hezbollah and its key backer you ron. well. i would like to say to iran and its followers that they will be losers in their intervention in the arab a fast our nation will wake up as it did in the past on their hands in the region will be cut off really became prime minister in late two thousand and sixteen and a compromise deal under which michelle a political ally of hezbollah became president the agreement ended two and a half years of political deadlock it which the country was without a functioning government and while hariri surprise decision to quit raises more questions than answers it puts into focus the regional rivalries lebanon often finds itself at the center of the leading sunni politician is backed by saudi arabia while has bola lebanon's most powerful political social and armed movement is sponsored by iran despite the complex nature of lebanese politics the thirty member unity cabinet appeared to be functioning until now as

3:15 am
increasing control over part a larger. of the devastated country and it's feared that tensions which have been simmering inside lebanon since the start of the war between hezbollah and israel and elsewhere could not only reemerge but has the potential of escalating into a major conflict n.p.r.'s al-jazeera beirut well as into iran has more reaction in iran to her areas of resignation and criticism hours after the resignation of lebanese prime minister saad hariri in which he criticized iran for its involvement in his country and in the region iran's foreign ministry spokesman back home kasumi rejected those allegations and said that the sudden resignation by the lebanese prime minister was both regretful and came as a surprise to teheran accost me also commented on the optics of the resignation saying the fact that hariri resigned outside of the country in
