missile in the sky and smoke from an explosion after it was intercepted the fighters in yemen say they fired it marking one thousand days since the war in yemen started we're getting reports the saudi led coalition is already retaliated with air strikes against positions in southern sudan are the target of the heathy missile was the royal palace in the west of riyadh a large group assad leaders were meeting that the time including king solomon and crown prince mohamed bin however the saudi government says the missile was instead targeting residential areas and there were no casualties meanwhile iran has condemned a u.s. accusation that teheran supplied another missile fired from yemen at saudi arabia last month the government summoned the source some bastard who represents u.s. interests in iran to pass on the message it called a statement by the u.s. ambassador to the the u.n. irresponsible and provocateur. and all of this is happening against the backdrop of the war in yemen the saudi led military coalition has killed at least one hundred
5:03 pm
thirty six civilians and competence there in just ten days the united nations says they were killed by saudi airstrikes between december sixth and sixteenth these are the incidents the u.n. was able to verify so the number of civilians killed could be much higher one attack involved seven air strikes on a prison in sinai last week where forty five detainees were killed and this quake is an assistant professor at the defense studies department at king's college london he says the with this missile attack are trying to damage the saudi public's perception of safety i think who these wanted to make a statement that they're still up and running and that they're still fighting despite the fact that you know in recent days and weeks they have been allegation that there were these are we can buy the split with ali abdullah saleh. that they possibly not would not be able to shoot missiles further into territory but they proved otherwise and i think it was mostly as stunned by the who these you know in
5:04 pm
terms of p.r. saying that we're still active we're still running and we're able to actually hit a high profile target such as allegedly the palace in riyadh where you have been told one was supposed to announce the the budget today so this is obviously off the table now because you know this is this has been a very very disruptive impact and this is what the movies want to do they want to disrupt they might not be able to actually cause pain or they might not actually cause physical pain on and sally because the patriot system works relatively well the intercepting system provided by the americans but it's more about the impact that this has on the psyche of the saudi population. china and russia have criticize the u.s. for labeling them power rivals that pose a threat to america's security and prosperity president donald trump singled the pair out as the outlined a new national security strategy he described the two as competition that saw to

more reaction from beijing. well chinese officials have been basically pouring over president trump's national security strategy speech in washington the chinese ambassador was first to give reaction he essentially said there appeared to be a contradiction in what the u.s. side was saying on the one hand they regard china as a friend someone to do business with on the other hand they regard china as an adversary and the message coming through loud and clear is that yes china and the united states can be rivals but they don't have to be enemies here in beijing the foreign ministry spokeswoman hard training also fired a warning shot and she had some quite strong language let's hear more of what she had to say john what's in the how we think it actually chen for any country it's futile for them to distort the facts or to china the u.s. side to stop distorting china's strategic in thousand chen and the band in the zero sum game and cold war mindset it will only bring harm to everyone it was president
5:07 pm
george bush of course who once referred to china as a strategic rival that was more than ten years ago but he moderated his language in the succeeding years the message coming through from china on tuesday was that we have areas of mutual cooperation particularly when it comes to trade two way trade between china and the united states stood at fifty five billion dollars last year and some two point six million u.s. jobs are largely dependent on that trade so china is saying we can agree to disagree but we have to work together particularly when it comes to areas like north korea so yes we can have our disagreements but at the same time we have to realize that our economies are interwoven and there's going to be friction this year next year and the year after but we shouldn't lose sight of the fact that we need each other in the interests of world peace. palestinian protesters have been fighting with israeli troops in the occupied west bank it is the latest incident
