previous ones hidden behind all electric offerings like the new porsche ty car and while a 6 figure sports car like this is clearly not designed for the mass market some analysts say the dominance of fossil fueled cars will soon be over to already see that are on a small scale with high growth rates but i think from 2025 to 2030 the basic sales of electric vehicles will climb very rapidly also in absolute numbers not just in relative terms. the importance of the auto industry to germany is clear when motor exports are threatened so too is the country's economic growth and although as a whole germany is not technically in recession right now this is the one sector where alarm bells are ringing which explains why the country's political leaders feel the need to drop in there is the automobile industry today the automobile industry is a very important part of our country's economic success and it's above all an
11:18 pm
industry which supplies jobs and therefore security for hundreds of thousands of people. for some people the electric red. illusion is just a stopgap this is the technology of the future they say hydrogen fuel in motor vehicles that everyone can drive. and yet for now the power of the petrol or diesel engine is still apparent such as here with the new land rover defender whose only green variant a plug in hybrid will be available from next year generally though this year's event seems more about showing it's the electric car which is charging ahead dominic al-jazeera at the frankfurt motor show. and let's take you through some of the headlines here on al-jazeera now yemen so

11:49 pm
up in the next 60 minutes yemen zoeth the rebels say they've used drones to attack . 2 major oil facilities in saudi arabia. they will be remembered as a plan african it's. a collaboration african leaders pay tribute to robert mugabe at a statement morial as zimbabwe grapples with his divisive legacy also this hour of fights break out in hong kong between supporters and opponents of china's central government after several nights of peaceful protests and dumpy to simply call the baseball to english premier league leaders liverpool make it 5 wins in a row off to seeing off newcastle united that more data this news hour. thank you very much for joining as the saudi led coalition has carried out as strikes on a host the rebel camp in northern yemen it comes just hours after the whole fees
11:50 pm
claimed responsibility for drone attacks on 2 major oil facilities a massage arabia one had the cake oil processing facility northeast of riyadh videos posted online showed a massive fire at the facility with flames shooting high into the air other videos included the sound of apparent gunfire in the background small could be seen rising over the skyline from some distance away the fires according to saudi state media have now been contained the state owned energy giant. exports that continuing but the wall street journal is reporting that the kingdom has shut down about how it's output osama bin job ads as more. the world's largest oil processing facility went up in flames after a drone attack. amateur videos captured the fire and smoke at saudi aramco as uptake unit it was targeted by drones belonging to yemen's with the rebels with a capacity to process nearly 7000000 barrels a day a big plays
11:51 pm
a pivotal role in iran because operations and in the oil fields in her race which produces a 1000000 barrels a day also came under attack. aramco has not made clear the extent of the damage and its impact on saudi oil production but state media carried a statement from the interior ministry and said the fires were brought under control saudi arabia has been leading a coalition against the who it is in the war in yemen since 2015. the rebels say they want the world to see that they have a list of targets which they can hit in the kingdom of god some. attacks are our right and we warn the saudis that our targets will keep expanding we have the right to strike back in retaliation to the air strikes and the targeting of our civilians for the last 5 years saudi arabia accuses iran of backing the hoodies a charge denied by the rebels some believe the saudi response to the drone attacks is going to be more of what's been happening during the war in yemen this would probably help them project their what they've been doing in yemen as something
11:52 pm
legitimate especially given the international report about the violations and about the at last it is committed in yemen i think the saudis would continue to think that they've been doing over the last 4 years as bomb bomb bomb would find his tactics have evolved in the last few years and they're drone attacks have become more frequent accurate and long range as conventional air defenses struggle against multiple small drones some see aerial attacks on oil facilities as a possible game changer in the conflict like this can be assembled from $10000.00 or explosives this provides a unique opportunity to target the military and in this case it's also more concerning because you want to target facilities that. besides the physical damage the hoodies also seem to have time the attacks just a saudi aramco announced it is moving forward to sending a part of the state oil company the stock listing has been on again off again but
11:53 pm
attacks like these will not help investor confidence to bring in billions of dollars to diversify in the south the economy the prime minister is that is really . radio someone listening right. now doesn't interest you it's saudi aramco is no ordinary company it's the engine of saudi arabia's economy and a source of power for its rulers it's also the crown jewel of the saudi crown prince's ambitious plan to diversify the economy but with seemingly expanding strike capabilities from the war in yemen this would give investors a moment to pause some of the job it is there. and osama has also examined the strategic importance of aramco and the politics of saudi oil in a documentary for jazeera here's an excerpt. it seemed like a great idea the world's largest oil producing company pumping millions of barrels a day to become the world's largest ever traded stock on porsche could have just
