trump and kim jong un in singapore it was also a chance for the three countries south korea the united states and japan to say to show that they are on the same page when it comes to the issue of north korea when it comes to the issue of denuclearization and achieving. a peace treaty to end the korean war and that certainly was the tone in the media conference behind closed doors perhaps there were some tough questions put to mike pompei or perhaps most importantly or mainly from the president of south korea mungy and particularly when it comes to the cancellation of joint military exercises between the united states and south korea we heard donald trump after the meeting with kim jong un in his media conference in singapore saying that he would end those joint military exercises because they are expensive and they are provocative well clearly that
7:04 am
would have raised some concerns both from south korea and japan this has regional security implications and it seems that there was no prior warning given to those countries before donald trump made that announcement the saudi amorality coalition fighting in yemen has begun a large scale offensive to take control of the port city of data from the rebels that's despite u.n. warnings of catastrophic humanitarian consequences and security council hold an emergency meeting in the next twenty four hours to discuss the situation the red sea port is the second largest and important port of entry for aid shipments intense air strikes have hit location south of the data they were they say they responded by launching missiles at a coalition ship rebels seized her days are in two thousand and fourteen. more. a major military operation is under way yemeni government troops are on the move to
7:05 am
take the port of her from the rebels warplanes and warships of the saudi emirate coalition have also launched strikes on the city and reinforcements are joining soldiers on the ground for what many say is a decisive battle for control over northern yemen but they didn't tell him that they are here on our way to for data and we will liberate it from the who we are determined to celebrate you and mark the end of ramadan there. daters seaports is a vital lifeline for the whole thesis the saudis say that's where the shia rebels get weapons smuggled in from iran that denied by both and the houthi is the united nations fearing what a spokesman called a bloodbath if the data was attacked by coalition forces has proposed and you deal that would see houthi as hand over their support to the un but that wasn't accepted
7:06 am
the bourse also a vital lifeline for millions of civilians caught up in the war and aid agencies are now warning of a humanitarian catastrophe they say supply routes for urgently needed aid will be caught and more than a quarter of a million lives are at risk the fact that we have more military operations going on will just exacerbate the situation which means that not enough we entered for the entire population of him and we have already today eighty percent of the yemeni people who rely heavily on humanitarian aid. for the war in yemen has already claimed tens of thousands of lies mostly civilians many have died of hunger and disease but the fighting is. gone on so far none of the attempts to have its. house succeeded none of the players are working together or at the most players
7:07 am
so they can bring your money to the table the saudi coalition leads the campaign to drive the out of the day and they get many capital sun and reinstate the government of president. of the rebels remain defiant firing blistering besides into saudi arabia and vowing to do the capital of the. well yemenis are suffering under the world's biggest humanitarian crisis now their fair aid could become. back. taking over whatever could be called an act of madness in every sense of the word it's a city full of civilians and is the main artery for all yemenis seventy percent of all it comes to what and now it will stop. results in a humanitarian disaster it is
7:08 am
a lifeline for the residents of said presidents of the who controlled provinces. abraham khatami is worried about the effect only assault of the assault on civilians. with then the city of about three hundred thousand children and we don't know how they identify military targets to begin with and we know from previous experiences and bottles that the saudi led coalition did in the past they just didn't they they couldn't distinguish between military targets and civilians and there are many crimes that are him in a chain. you know crimes against humanity that were committed by the coalition also as well as a whole so this is added more problems to the existing you know him in achaia and disaster and we don't know if it's going to solve any problems and we know that even if they take the port from from the whole season we the most of yemenis one
7:09 am
country to be liberated not only from the healthy but also from the saudi a magic coalition the question becomes right now as they go into hand over as they take the part of the city or data from the how it is are they going to turn to the yemeni government and the question i don't think so because we have seen crystal clear examples and the city of i den and how remote where the arab led coalition didn't hand those cities and ports and airports to the legitimate yemeni government and istead they created militias and they handed that power to the militias and their mind the yemeni government that they said they come in here they they were they came to support. the united nations general assembly has passed a non-binding resolution condemning israel for using excessive force against palestinian protesters in gaza israeli soldiers have shot dead at least one hundred
