it shot down a long range ballistic missile over riyadh which was fired from yemen who the rebels say they're behind the attack mariana hand as more. it's not the first time who theory rebels have fired long range missiles across the border at saudi arabia but this missile appears to have travelled the furthest hundreds of kilometers deep into saudi heartland and only taken down close to king khalid international airport on the outskirts of the capital riyadh. the official saudi news agency is p.a. said saudi forces fired a surface to air patriot missile to intercept it witnesses reported hearing a loud explosion and seeing fragments falling near the airport the rebels moved quickly to say they were behind the missile attack telling al-jazeera they had launched a burka and two h. missile a scud type missile with a range of more than eight hundred kilometers knocked out of the year. we choose
5:03 am
the time and place after collecting information about a target and it was khaled international airport east of riyadh targeted by a long range volcano ballistic missile this is in response to the continued aggression committing daily massacres against the yemeni people and. 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 thiis 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 step down with airstrikes to back up humans government and two and a half years the saudi 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
5:04 am
dozens of missiles into saudi territory last week who the spokesman told al-jazeera that who's the fighters would target any country that attacks them. i will be one man out there and let the dust i would be in others that target yemen as far as we are concerned are fair military target for our 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 and conflict medium hond
5:05 am
al-jazeera let's take a closer look now at the casualties of the new saudi anticorruption committee well it's created to deal with the abuse of power including the theft of public funds eleven princes and dozens of former ministers are among those reportedly detained and then there are those who've been dismissed first to be removed on kings from mars or royal orders was the minister of the national guard prince bin of the law he's the son of the late king of the making and one of the most prominent princes on the list he was the last seen the a royal in government not closely connected to king saul man or his son who's the heir to the throne also out is the minister of economy and planning there have been mohammed the fact in an engineer and a former mer of jihad and another to go is. he was the commander of the saudi navy but by his royal decree he's been ordered to retire the largest
5:06 am
of his senior political analyst marwan bashara says of the heir to the throne crown prince mohammed bin so the man is flexing his political muscle in ways not seen before in recent saudi history. it's yet another reshuffle right in the kingdom of saudi arabia and at the heart of it is the crown prince mohammed bin so nun 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
5:07 am
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 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 certainly in government. and he's been called ambitious as well as reckless by the various outlets in the west that are really closer so your arabia when you talk to i mean many analysts of his 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 is 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
5:08 am
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 in saudi arabia. in charge of the campaign against it are a very close friend of the united states look at the new man he just could of met i've been abdulla who's 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 it's established 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 the aside and he's doing his own 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
5:09 am
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 riyadh about the whole policy in the yemen and which way do they go now today we saw this new dramatic change in what i would like to call or what even they they're calling a new balance of terror between the saudis and the host these where. the years are 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 king airport around riyadh so really the capacity of the what these 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 some particular has made
5:10 am
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 thrown into chaos by the lebanese prime minister who happens to be inside the arabiya office 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
5:11 am
unfortunate why it's because if the regime 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 arenas i'm talking about 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 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 so your
5:12 am
neighbors taking 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. incredibly dangerous for the arab world and as we've seen from the shooting of mess hall that we're just talking about it's also dangerous for saudi arabia dangerous for regional security. to japan where president double from yankee visiting and we just landed there you caught aflat space let's listen in to what he has to say to u.s. troops stationed there. we're going to raise it. and. we salute you we honor you and we stand proudly with the men and women who defend us and our way of life nations are built from the courage and love and sacrifice of patriots just like you
5:13 am
each of you and herod's the proud legacy of generations of warriors that have walked these very grounds for more than seven decades from your coders runways american pilots took to the air and drove back the invaders during the korean war tremendous courage tremendous bravery from here they enforced a precious peace during a long and bitter cold war and in the aftermath of the devastating two thousand and eleven tsunami this base served as the launching point for operation trauma doxie largest humanitarian relief effort in american history which saved the lives of thousands and thousands of great japanese citizens like those who came before you you always rise to
5:14 am
the occasion and you never ever let your country down general martina's general chirality. general past career rear admiral fenton brigadier general winkler colonel marse and chief master sergeant greene you leave the forces under your command with exceptional skill and devotion and america is tremendously grateful to you. present speaking to station troops talking about their involvement historically in japan both within the korean war and also how they've managed to help of course the japanese during the tsunami of two thousand and eleven certainly. bringing up morale there for the troops or listening in as our correspondent scott high is also
5:15 am
live for us in tokyo a lot for the president to meet and greet with the meeting the troops is one of the things he has to do when he comes on visits like this but of course he's struck a very tight relationship you might say with the japanese prime minister they have a lot to discuss in a very short space of time. they do so hell yeah the president president trumps aircraft air force one just touched down at this air base just outside tokyo within the last forty minutes and it was kind of interesting he came down the usual suit don climbed up on to the stage where we are seeing him now deliver the speech to. service people there at the you called the air base and he took off his jacket his suit jacket and put on this leather bomber jacket obvious he's speaking to the military he's so he's going to speak to them and deliver the speech in a different manner as you mentioned yes he's going to be here for a couple days but really a lot of the focus has been on this relationship going into this trip this historic twelve day trip throughout asia eastern asia that trump prime minister shinzo are
5:16 am
they have a very tight relationship know something that's interesting that's playing out here in japan leading up to this visit is that yes the administration for mr abbott is very hopeful of the relationship and encouraging the relationship with president trump they even said that they feel as though the relationship with the current president is better than the former president president obama but it's interesting because it's a different feeling that most people in japan there's been a lot of feel there's been a lot of polls as of late and some just over the last couple of days that say that a lot of people here in japan are concerned about this relationship some see it as almost half see it as a lopsided relationship that the tight relationship between the japanese administration and american ministration benefits the u.s. more than it benefits japan so that's a concern of the people have but coming into this you can expect over the today they'll be a lot of warm greetings and golf round of golf later on today then
5:17 am
a private dinner with the spouses on sunday evening there's going to be a lot of the physical evidence showing that tight relationship so hill as you say easy themselves into the first of what twelve days of a trip around asia but monday is the usa the day of reckoning where they've got to sit down and really how they're out the day's business it's not just about security in north korea president trump will want to talk trade as well. yes that tomorrow monday is really the day for a business if you will there will be a bilateral meeting between the two leaders and they will talk a lot of about a lot of things that trade will probably be brought up but it's not the headliner if you will the headliner is north korea and how these two allies are going to coordinate efforts to curb north korea now there's a lot of talk about possibly the administration and feeling going to show some kind of force during this visit trumps visit to asia there's really been no direct evidence of that but this is going to be something that is going to be discussed
5:18 am
this is something that the abbate ministration has really kind of made sure that the united states and the president is going to stick by their ally and stick close to their ally when it comes to anything north korea threat related now this is very interesting though you look at you know just about a year ago i was actually in japan doing a story toward the tail end of the campaigning just before the election day in the united states and the story then was candidate trump then saying that japan and south korea weren't doing enough with their alliance with the united states saying they should pay for the u.s. troops in those two countries now we're hearing a completely different story standing tight standing right next to their ally and it's interesting at this air base where president trump is speaking now in just landed within the last forty minutes and there are members of the japan self-defense force there side by side with u.s. military personnel so it's really when you look at what the rhetoric candidate trip was saying about a year ago to what's going on right now it's quite different and obviously the main
5:19 am
reason for that is because of the threats coming out of north korea so he'll indeed we'll leave it there for now with us called we'll come back to you throughout the day as we follow president because he's still speaking. to u.s. military personnel based in japan of course will be speaking with him for a short while before he's that officially greeted by the japanese government of course al-jazeera following his movements oh. over the next twelve days in asia. still ahead here on the al-jazeera news are thousands rally in downtown tehran as part of events marking the anniversary of the nineteen seventy nine u.s. embassy hostage crisis. and protesting banners and empty seats f.c. barcelona show their true colors in the crisis over catalonia as independence pass coming up with joe and school.

al jazeera. where ever you. welcome back you're watching al-jazeera times the whole robin remind of our top stories saudi arabia says it's taken down a longer range ballistic missile fired from yemen over its capital riyadh beauty revels in yemen say they launched a missile
5:33 am
a travel five hundred kilometers over the border. and there's also been a major shake of the saudi cabinet the national guard minister prince met there been a villain or has been released from office he was the last senior roiling government not closely connected with king's own man or his son. and lebanon's prime minister has resigned saad hariri made the announcement in a televised address from the saudi capital riyadh he said he was stepping down for fear of being assassinated hariri also lashed out at iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah accusing both of destabilizing the region. the us present all trump has just arrived in japan he started his twelve day talk of asia he's been speaking to american troops carter air force base and there he discussed how important the u.s. japanese relationship was and how important u.s. troops were in the region to not just help japan but regional allies in terms of
5:34 am
their defense this is what he had to say. to prey on the innocents history has proven over and over that the road of the tyrant is a steady march toward poverty suffering and servitude but the path of strong nations and free people certain of their values and confident in their futures is a proven pair toward prosperity and peace we cherish our cultures we embrace our values and we always fight for what we believe in because of you the people of america the people of japan and the freedom loving people everywhere are able to fulfill their destinies and follow their dreams. once the snow is a professor of diplomacy at kyoto university of studies and the author of japan's information war joins me now from tokyo good to have you with us live on al-jazeera
5:35 am
how much of this meeting between the u.s. and japan is about security. in comparison to trade and education and development. it's certainly about security as the remarks you've just shared point out but i think it's important for abbay and trump to be strong and alive with each other and economics because we're all trying to avoid a war here and some of the rhetoric from donald trump's tweets and earlier remarks were very concerning and i think he's going to try very carefully to avoid any missteps and he doesn't want to go too deep and too strong with north korea when he's got four other countries to visit this is a region where you have to be in or culturally sensitive you have to avoid conflict
5:36 am
you have to pay attention to protocol and the more that he's presidential as he was showing at the touchdown there and yokota the more that he can be presidential throughout this trip and be some pull back a little bit on his strong language the better off he'll be received here he needs to have a very good trip this was originally going to be two trips it was then made into one it's going to be grueling but this is a good start for him they're going to have their round of golf but tomorrow they'll talk about trade and improving industry ties this is true let me just point out of the new jobs package i mean let me just come in that because basically he has these countries to visit to take as you say the trip slowly slowly but he will want to have small successes along the way whilst he is still talking over about security in terms of japan he will want to talk trade he will want to talk about an open market it's something that tokyo resists is that going to be at the crack in that
5:37 am
position. well they're going to try to avoid such a crack because it would be very damaging to the start of his trip if there war some type of a trip up here in trade relations and good economic relations this is the most important bilateral relationship for the united states u.s. japan and it's not all about security but the last thing you want is north korea trying to throw a wrench into this with either a missile launch or going after trump the whole time where he then gets on the defensive and starts tweeting about north korea that's the last thing any of these countries want this is important this is the most important economic region for the u.s. now and yes there's a fifty seven billion dollar trade surplus on the side of japan it is more protectionist deck but because of the close relationship between a and trump there
5:38 am
is a way to get over that and have a win win solution in terms of the region itself america trouble is also treading very carefully because issues of the south china sea involve china he will be visiting and speaking to president xi as well how important is that relationship in the working relationship between beijing and washington at the moment. very important it was interesting when president obama was in office he talked about an asian pivot i was here in japan and twenty ten after he had announced that and many of the japanese felt a little taken for granted now it's japan's time to shine with the u.s. and so trump has to be careful that he doesn't come across as caring more about japan and this security arrangement then he does his relations with beijing as well so course he's going to hopefully come out on
5:39 am
a high from japan and then go to beijing and really concentrate on the u.s. japan ties and how china can work affectively regarding the security issue the ongoing trouble with north korea we know that he's been really tough with this rhetoric he softened it and he should continue to soften it if his advice or skin have their influence on him indeed it will for the moment we'll see what happens and thank you very much for your insight nancy snow there from the university of cairo to thank you thirty nine years ago today the u.s. embassy in tehran was overrun by student demonstrators who supported an islamic revolution there the first three has become a day of iranian nationalism and this year it strained relations ron washington d.c. a surface to air missile was displayed the celebrations they report into iran. every
5:40 am
year the iranian government and its supporters celebrate student day named for the demonstrators over rated to control of the u.s. embassy in nine hundred seventy nine. it happened in the aftermath of the revolution that overthrew the royal family and saw the rise of the islamic republic of iran. with the american rejection of the nuclear deal and aggressive rhetoric from president donald trump the annual event has this year taken on added significance was told us that we've come here to say in a powerful way that america cannot do a damn thing and until our last drop of blood we will defend our country. we have no problem of the people of america but we don't welcome the government of america. each year the old embassy grounds become a rallying point with anti-american chants and slogans. and the event is an insight into the ideology the iranian establishment works tirelessly to keep alive the events of that they are as important for iranians today as they were thirty eight
5:41 am
years ago not just because they want to defy the united states but because the taking of this embassy a symbol of american military might in the middle east at that time by students fuels a mindset of resistance that is woven into the fabric of iran's national identity. and we can see how the government is planning for the future. this show of modern military strength is all about linking the country's past with its present and a reminder to iran's critics the missile program is here to stay one that was after repeatedly being defeated in iraq and afghanistan by the people of the region inevitably the us is bearing its more mongering teeth and on the other side of the world went into continental missiles are being tested and in southeast asia when nuclear bombs are being tested and threatening and bluffing trump just tweets. many of the young men and women here on any other day might be found enjoying american food and music in one of the many western style restaurants that are popular in
5:42 am
iran and that appreciation of american style culture is something the government worries about the where in the days leading up to this event the civilian and military leaders gave fiery speeches repeating the message so the young people don't forget for iran america is still an oppressor. zero to one. almost every country in the world is affected by poll nutrition that's the finding of the show's global nutrition report the report says one hundred fifty five million children under the age of five a stunted means but they're not as tall as they should be for their age natasha going to looks at malnutrition in yemen where war has left millions of people with inadequate access to food and we will agree that you may find some of the images in this report disturbing you arms and legs like twigs barely able to hold her head up and looking more like a child saida became a haunting reminder of yemeni suffering last year. this year one thousand year old
