11:02 am
blockade was tightened the situation is being described as catastrophic in a stark warning from the u.n. official james pace reports now the u.n. security council has struck a different tone. after three days of quiet diplomacy with saudi arabia the u.n. is now changing course laying out the dire scenario if the blockade of yemen isn't lifted. there will be a famine in yemen. it will not be like the famine that we saw in south sudan earlier in the year where tens of thousands of people are affected it will not be like a famine which cost two hundred fifty thousand people their lives in somalia in twenty eleven. it will be the largest famine the world has seen for many decades with millions of victims. the response from the security council
11:03 am
seemed very guarded the current president the italian ambassador read out a statement strongly condemning the missile fired by the who fears but barely mentioning the country responsible for the blockade you have strongly condemned the missile by the who thing is given mr local dire warning isn't it now time to strongly condemn the country that is blockading yemen not allowing the humanitarian aid in saudi arabia. the focus by u.s.g. law. was absolutely on the humanitarian aspects of the conflict we also know that any and all military escalation army cherry attack is heading back on the humanitarian situation so of course this is why we have decided to issue deeds breath elements. the u.n. says yemen is the worst humanitarian disaster in the world after years of conflict
11:04 am
and an epidemic of cholera people in who data the port where aid food and medicine should be flowing into the country have a sense of despair. people have no jobs no life and the world is almost at a standstill almost finished insult to injury they closed down the port. said the price of a bag of flour was seven thousand reales it's now eight and a half there was an reelz owner the price of a chicken welcome we do god help us mr comments from this podium brought some of that reality from yemen to the security council but for now they've responded with very carefully chosen words rather than any concrete action james out jazeera at the united nations there are questions over the whereabouts of lebanon's prime minister today saad hariri the after he says he resigned his post
11:05 am
during a visit to saudi arabia on saturday a source of beirut's airport told our zero that i really was not aboard his plane when it arrived in the capital on thursday it's believed that the plane had passed through europe rather than arriving directly from the saudi capital on tuesday how many attended talks in abu dhabi before returning to riyadh let's go live to beirut and zeros in to hold it is there so what is the latest with. where is he. well adrian like you mentioned the last time we saw him was on tuesday when he was in abu dhabi holding talks with rulers there after that meeting his office said he flew back to riyadh so he is believed to be in the saudi capital where he announced the sudden resignation on saturday and since saturday really we haven't heard from the prime minister he hasn't made any statement even though we saw him. in abu dhabi on the day before that sitting with the saudi king now his office here well we've been hearing. over the past few days saying that yes the prime minister is
11:06 am
coming back to lebanon but they're not saying when so it's a very very confusing picture now why should he return it's because the constitutional process is on hold the president is refusing to accept his resignation saying that the way in which he resigned announcing his resignation on saudi television and to outside the country cannot be accepted and he wants to sit down and talk to the prime minister to understand the circumstances behind the resignation so in the eyes of the president he didn't resign yet and the constitutional process is going to be very very complicated because this country is divided and you're going to need a consensual figure to head to head the new government so a lot of uncertainty now in beirut so what are lebanon's politicians saying about all of this. yes the different politicians they've been calling for calm they've been calling for unity we have to remember this is a very deeply divided country in a very deeply divided region resignation is not just an internal lebanese matter it is linked to the saudi iranian rivalry playing out across the region and it seems
11:07 am
that saudi arabia wants to take more action against iran trying to curb iranian influence and it wants to start from lebanon so we have to point out that this is not the first time that saudi arabia or other countries for that matter if tried to curb hezbollah's influence or clip their wings there have been attempts in the past to get it to disarm to get it to pull its troops out of syria to stop supporting the syrian president bashar assad but all those attempts lead to nowhere and this is what many lebanese people are asking what is saudi going to do next are they going to put financial pressure on lebanon economic pressure on this country or will there be a war so a lot of uncertainty this is not a new crisis but definitely lebanon has now been dragged to the center stage of the iranians how do you rivalry it's enemy thanks to their lives in beirut. there's been a new wave of arrests in what saudi arabia is calling an anti corruption crackdown dozens of royal family members officials and prominent business men of all right. been arrested since the purge was announced on saturday around seventeen thousand
11:08 am
bank accounts have now been frozen and the numbers expected to rise critics say the crackdown is a bid to consolidate power by the crown prince mohammed bin soma. syria's army and militia from iraq have surrounded the eisel controlled city of al book. it's on syria's border with iraq that is the armed groups last urban area in syria this video released by the pros tarion government video shows fighting in the area lived to work near the turkish syrian border is a suburb and job it is following developments from there so what's the latest we're hearing from. who is now in control. and as you can imagine there are conflicting reports in the last eight to ten hours isis fighters saying that they have been able to repulse the attack from the iraqi side there are also reports by the syrian observatory for human rights saying there is very
11:09 am
intense fighting that is happening in pockets of in the south of the town but according to syrian state media and hezbollah media that takeover offer from isis is now complete they say that their forces down to conducting search operations trying to clear the area after they have taken control and routed isis from a will come out which is the last urban stronghold in this city and every city in the east of syria near the border with iraq and they are very confident that they'd be able to not just take a look and squeeze out of the rest of the remaining pockets in the daters or province which is an oil rich area and all sides are trying to consolidate their control over it. was the last urban area controlled by i saw once it's clear of myself isis what's next is the fight against i slover. but yes the fight against icily would be over but the fight. in syria is not going to be
11:10 am
over anytime soon because as i just mentioned there is or is an oil rich area over there it's not just russia backed and iran backed militias and the syrian government are trying to compete for influence on the east side of the euphrates river it's the kurdish fighters who are backed by the united states who are also trying to gain areas as ice and collapses so yes there will be pockets of isis fighters left in these no man lands no man's land on the borders on either side of iraq and syria but it will not be able to control any urban areas after a good come on but the fight will continue as the syrian forces have been saying that they will take every inch of territory from goodish right to special in the dinners or problems because it controls a lot of oil fields and gas fields and will be a source of revenue as it was for ice and put any side that takes over this area so many thanks to a down to zero sum of a job at their reporting from. the u.s. president says he's found common ground with the chinese leader over the crisis on
