saudi crown prince consolidate his hold on power after eleven princes and four ministers are arrested in a corruption crackdown. has pushed him aunt and four other ministers turn themselves into belgian police. syrians displaced by the fighting and there is a hit by a car bomb reported to have killed at least one hundred people. and we begin in lebanon where the leader of the group hezbollah has responded to the surprise resignation of the prime minister saad hariri in riyadh on saturday. says the move was forced by saudi arabia and was a way to score points both internally and in the region even refused to respond directly to the statement from hariri and self saying that he suspected it didn't come directly from the lebanese prime minister. and the list if there is ignition
8:02 pm
was. the decision dictated on saddam and he was not at all willing to resign it is not his decision period and i think all the lebanese politicians and media people press people for who was accepting this conclusion even in the fall. that ignition was from the area why the man was allowed to come back to lebanon and the from lebanon the can that is resignation. well in other developments there's been a major shake up in the top ranks of saudi arabia's government and ruling family between saturday night and sunday morning eleven saudi princes four sitting cabinet ministers and dozens of former ministers were arrested the government describes all this is the work of a new anti corruption committee which itself was only formed on saturday night
8:03 pm
among those detained is prince our waleed bin talal he's best known as a billionaire investor controlling major stakes in twitter twenty first century fox and citi group and previously listed in time magazine's one hundred most influential people's list the most significant in total move involves prince met have been abdullah who was removed from his post as the head of the national god he's the son of the late king abdullah and was considered a contender for the throne also out is the minister of economy and planning adil been hammered by key the dismissals are widely seen as consolidating the power of the crown prince mohammed bin sound man also known as n.b.'s he was elevated to the position just four months ago displacing an older cousin or saudi arabia's king salmon has discussed security and economic issues and domestic reform in a phone call with the u.s. president donald trump but it appears they didn't discuss the major cabinet overall that's actually going to reports on the implications of a shake up. call it
8:04 pm
a surprise saturday night shake up saudi state t.v. reported that eleven princes three current and dozens of former ministers have been detained as part of an inch i corruption probe only hours after the formation of an investigative committee was announced it's difficult to relate this to corruption since they didn't have enough time to make a prosecution or to make investigations about that if there was something or some information collected previously why did the and with. the case by case in different people as before about the not doing this overnight all these people together which is rather a quick question specious. the saudi cabinet overhaul is viewed as a power play by king solomon analysts say it's designed to ensure his son and heir to the throne crown prince mohammed bin salomon consolidates power and does so among their branch of the royal family is making this public relations sense to get
8:05 pm
more public support also a little bit of the way to afford his popularity one of the most high profile figures pushed out is the minister of the national guard prince metabo bin of dollar he was the son of former king of dollar and once thought to be next in line to the throne he was the remaining member of the abdullah family in such a high level position. also detained is prince will lead bin tell out he's one of the wealthiest men in the world and given his widespread investments is detainment could have an impact on global business. this shake up sends a message there's a new political order it's also a reminder that for months after the crown prince was named heir to the throne there can be no mistake mohammed bin selman is the future for saudi arabia
8:06 pm
natasha going to eight zero zero. wolf lawn. joins us now from doha and i want to just hearing there about a cabinet reshuffle in saudi a great deal has happened in just the past twenty four hours including this the arrest of saudi princes what does this restructuring mean for the concentration of power in the country where it certainly does consider the power and the hands of the crown prince and his father king so none. but we don't know for how long i mean this is a very interesting model when you take on some rich people and selectively some former ministers and so on and so forth though the people that you have their interest in mind and that you are fighting corruption and to do it in order to do that you're going to have to consume that even more power in your hand so you move on from being an executive or thought
8:07 pm
a tarion regime into an absolute authority and regime now where have we seen that over the last few years we've seen it happen in egypt when german mubarak the son of hosni mubarak tried to fight corruption and tried to come so there's power in the name of fighting corruption we've seen that in the slum of qaddafi the son of moammar gadhafi in libya trying to fight corruption in order to get him up more popular and credibility and we've seen it in bashar assad the son of how it is that in syria again the headline if i think corruption in order to gain credibility and to become the next president so is the crown prince in saudi arabia doing all of that just like the other three predecessors in order to succeed his father to become the king and would he endure as long as the others or more because as we know in syria libya and egypt things have not gone well over the last several years but we've seen the same model happening over even places like russia and china
8:08 pm
again leaders coming in and the name of fighting corruption consolidating powers and i think we've seen that being done today by this and vicious inexperience there in the in prompts crown prince of saudi arabia but we just don't know what are the consequences on the long term right and also we were hearing from hezbollah leader hassan nasrallah he couldn't resist mentioning these changes in saudi arabia specifically citing the change to the head of the national god prince and on to let me mention him i suppose that will now be questions as to how this sudden change in saudi arabia and what the fallout might be for other countries in the region. you know as one person observed today rather insightfully. this is the first time in history where one leader rachel feels two governments in two different countries in the same day so we're having very shuffle in saudi arabia
8:09 pm
and we had very shuffle in lebanon and behind it of course the crown prince and what the hezbollah leader tried to do in his speech is to underline the fact that there is no lebanese problem according to his analysis or his observations or either there is a saudi problem and that it's saudi arabia that either dictate to decide how to be imposed on him or proposed to him to quit the government in lebanon because clearly so that ab out wants to escalate its proxy conflict with iran not only in yemen syria but also in iraq and lebanon so all in all we've seen now lebanon on friday july eleventh on being put in the middle of this proxy conflict between iran and saudi arabia where the iranian really pushing hard in order to take more and more control in lebanon through has been law as well as sold eurabia trying to expand
8:10 pm
its influence and to confront iran in places like lebanon all right marwan for now thank you very much so let's get more on the comments you hearing from hezbollah leader hassan nasrallah this of course in response to the resignation of the prime minister. saad al hariri in riyadh on saturdays and one hundred joins us live now from beirut and cena we heard cayley saying that. resignation had nothing to do with internal politics or internal affairs in lebanon and that it was all positive the regional rival rivalry playing out and dictated him basically by riyadh. yes so hassan nasrallah saying that this was a saudi decision and the prime minister was actually forced to resign he's even questioning whether the prime minister can return to lebanon saying he's supposed to return on thursday let's see if he does then we can understand the situation
8:11 pm
more so hezbollah expressing shock saying that there is no there was no indication that the prime minister intended to resign and that there was cooperation in the country and there was what he called acceptable partnership so him blaming really the saudi government for the predicament in lebanon. zaina how might this impact the country because. often we do see a fragile political situation in lebanon at the best of times what might happen now that there is this yet more vacuum well there is a political vacuum and like you mentioned there has been political vacuums in the past but there is a constitutional crisis because this may be a parliamentary democracy but what you need is a consensual democracy the parties need to come together they need to find a compromise candidate if they don't do that then the political instability will only continue and that is why people are really worried about the security situation in lebanon they're worried about political violence they're worried about the economic situation so there is really
8:12 pm
a lot of uncertainty what might be the trigger or the catalyst to bring all this sound certainty into some sort of fighting on the street zaina because that's not something that we've seen in lebanon for a few years now despite all the tension and the economic problems everything seems to just carry on. well people are really downplaying the possibility of a confrontation in the streets of lebanon for the time being at least right now people are quite worried about the economic fallout the economic situation in the country and right now hezbollah really is very powerful it is a powerful force in fact the it's not just a political party they have troops they have troops fighting in syria they're very powerful in lebanon so the balance of power really is in its favor but there is no doubt that in this country if the different political parties and sects do not cooperate then there can not to be peace. what about the seventies they stand firmly behind have they what is how will this affect the position of that bloc in
8:13 pm
the country. well this is the problem there is a political divide yes but at the same time this political divide there's also a sectarian divide like you mentioned sagal how do you hears us and the his support to his support base is the sunni community and then you have of course you have hezbollah and its allies hezbollah being a sham movement and you have this tension in the country and it's not just in lebanon it's playing out across the region you have this problem in iraq for example and to a lesser extent in syria but definitely there is the secretary tension not just in lebanon and this is the real fear that if this political crisis becomes a sectarian crisis and it has happened in the past so there is a very deep divide in lebanon there's also a deep divide across the region but most analysts here in lebanon believe that lebanon has now been put in the eye of the struggle in the eye of the storm because they feel that what the saudi arabian government wants to do along with israel
8:14 pm
along with the united states is to curb iranian influence in the region and iranian influence of course being here in lebanon as well as through its proxies hezbollah so people are worried that lebanon has been dragged into that to this regional conflict to a certain extent that has shielded itself from the conflict in the region and now it is being dragged into the region but hezbollah secretary general saying that they're going to avoid any escalation he's calling for calm in fact many lebanese politicians today have been calling for calm the need for unity because you know it's a very fragile situation a very delicate balancing act in this country we did here in trying to strike a measured tone in his speech and now thank you very much dana halter with all the latest from the lebanese capital you're watching al-jazeera much more to tell you about this off hour. with two months to go why twenty seventeen is on course to be mexico's deadliest year long record. and life after icily
