saudi military has shot down a long range ballistic missile over riad fired from yemen who the rebels say they are behind the missile attack maybe on a honda has more. it's not the first time who the 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 burke and two h. missile a scud type missile with a range of more than eight hundred kilometers knocked out of the year it was a man we choose the time and place after collecting information about
6:03 am
a target and it was khalid international airport east of riyadh targeted by a long range volcano ballistic missile this is in response to continued aggression committing daily massacres against the yemeni people. the conflict in yemen pits the 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 step done with airstrikes to back up humans government and 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
6:04 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. one man out there and let the. others the target yemen as far as we're concerned are fair military target from 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 has left it 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 out is here let's take
6:05 am
a closer look now at the casualties of the new saudi anti corruption committee it was created to deal with their abuse of power including the theft of public funds eleven princes and dozens of foreign ministers are mung those reportedly detained and then there are those who've been dismissed first to be removed on king solomon's royal orders was the minister of the national guard prince met a bit been our he's the son of the late king abdullah making him one of the most prominent princes on the list he was the last senior royal in government not closely connected with man or his son and heir to the from hamad bin men also out is the minister of economy and planning been mohamed. and engineer and the former mayor of jeddah and another to go is abdullah bin sultan assault on he was the commander of the saudi navy but by this royal decree he's been
6:06 am
ordered to retire. just serious senior political analyst marwan bashar says the heir to the throne crown prince mohammed bin sultan 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
6:07 am
a bit of the structure so that it is a new era when you 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 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 comes 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
6:08 am
rid of you know if you all remember he was the crown crown prince or deputy crown prince now he's 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 got rid of myth 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 stablish meant in one thousand nine hundred eighty two the national guard has been hit by abdullah and his son now the new crown prince just put all of that aside and is 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
6:09 am
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 and which way do they go now to dave you 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 whole thing's whereby the whole he 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 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
6:10 am
a proof that the saudis or the crown prince some 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 thrown into chaos 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
6:11 am
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 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 already a civil war now with mike in third through an unknown why because it won and so eurabia are fighting their proxy wars wide saudi arabia is taking the offensive defense if you will in lebanon and 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
6:12 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. credibly dangerous for the arab world and as we've seen from the shooting of missile that we're just talking about it's also dangerous for saudi arabia dangerous for regional security now the sudden resignation of lebanon's prime minister has thrown the country into political chaos sad haiti said he feared an attempt on his life he lashed out at iran and its lebanese ally hezbollah accusing them of destabilizing the region into reports from beirut. it was an announcement few were expecting. i hereby announce my resignation as prime minister from the lebanese government knows the will of the lebanese is strong and the determination is steadfast and will overcome any attempts to impose any custodianship of them from powers either inside or outside our country long
6:13 am
live the people of lebanon so they have a reason resignation was made from the saudi capital riyadh in a televised address you also criticize 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 to fast our nation will wake up as it did in the past and the hands in the region will be cut off really became prime minister in late two thousand and sixteen and a compromise deal under which michel own 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
6:14 am
is sponsored by iran despite the complex nature of lebanese politics the thirty member unity kept it appeared to be functioning until now but it's a cool by all measures and it's like an invitation for instability input into that country everybody was working for a program to rebuild the country economically politically we have an election there's a cohesion within the government there's agreement within the political party we've been working a beautifully and then a phone call will come and the whole calculus of. thanks and in the past five days had it he has made two separate visits to saudi arabia where he lived in self-imposed exile following the collapse of his last government there he met with crown prince mohammed bin sell none who is known for his aggressive stance against iran u.s. president donald trump's administration is also pursuing tough policies on iran and
6:15 am
its allies including recent sanctions on hezbollah his resignation comes as the war in neighboring syria appears to be entering a new phase the government of president bashar al assad which is backed by iran is increasing control over a larger. parts 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 complex. al-jazeera beirut a car driven by a suicide attacker has exploded in the syrian city of dead is reports by the syrian state news agency say dozens of people have been killed and injured on friday government forces declared the city had been cleared of i saw fighters. well take quick break now but when we come back on al-jazeera thousands rally in downtown tehran as part of events marking the anniversary of the nine hundred seventy nine

6:26 am
place against the backdrop of a long good increasingly bitter struggle for secession andrew simmons al-jazeera jiro and our thirty nine years ago today the u.s. embassy in iran was overrun by student demonstrators who supported an islamic revolution the anniversary has become a day of iranian nationalism and this year and strained relations between tehran and washington a surface to air missile was displayed in the celebrations the reports from tehran . every year the iranian government and its supporters celebrate student day named for the demonstrators who overran and to control of the u.s. embassy in one 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
6:27 am
significance but he just 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 chances 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 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
6:28 am
a reminder to iran's critics the missile program is here to stay what. after repeatedly being defeated in iraq and afghanistan by the people of our region inevitably the us is bearing its more mongering and on the other side of the world when intercontinental 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 iran and that appreciation of american style culture is something the government worries about. in the days leading up to this event to civilian and military leaders the fiery speeches repeating the message so the young people don't forget for iran america is still and a person. has the right to run. a protest as

a crime that led to several other crimes including the ethnic cleansing of palestine and it's a crime that is still going on it's not finished the crime is being conducted in west bank and jerusalem and we want to stop the whole lot the british government is proud of having helping to create the state of israel it also has another series of . hundreds and thousands of palestinians on their home and diaspora of about. and while there is a lot of political will to try. onside for the british government certainly in terms of israeli lives and just brings that risk and it. seems really little by little we're told. that there is some form in the future of this we think the lucia namely the palestinians have their own state.
