they can respond to the continuing boredom and from the saudi new eco nation on yemen particularly the capital sanaa yes i mean for the last 40 years yemeni government and i has been has been calling the international community that the u.n. and human rights group at least. there are tens of thousands of yemeni civilians most of them are injured either by saudi airstrike or are sick are serious injury and they need. medical. care outside yemen but still saudi arabia is not allowing even those injured people i mean. here in sanaa they are not asking to. to let military personnel go out and to sanaa they just want it for humanitarian mean and they believe that the international community actually has been ignored in the closure of. other airports in yemen they ignored the blue kate ignored the
6:01 pm
total catastrophe that's happening in yemen and they believe this step was taken after 4 years of. war on yemen and they believe now it's time for the airlines those w.'s in saudi airport as they stop using sana airport after the saudis started the war against them and i think it's time because if there is any civilian civilian car casualty in the coming days or coming weeks this means that airlines take the responsibility so get a get take that as well as ability because actually is not i mean the saudi arabia cannot just bomb yemen airport while the airport still open and this is exactly what the yemeni government forces here in sanaa are saying that an airport and i for an eye and if they close our airports we will close all the ports. what do you say to those who argue that you know if one side is far into guns they should take responsibility for any one for any civilians that are being hit and you know just
6:02 pm
putting out a warning saying saying we're coming after this is doesn't absolve them of responsibility what do you say to that i mean i mean i know this exactly even if someone fired in the gun is the one who takes responsibility but seems to be after 40 years of so defied in the gun killing yemenis using american and u.k. france weapons it seems to me that the ultimate bet in any responsibility i mean that's why here in sanaa they came to this decision but at least they're the focus is on are they have not. targeted any like residential area they have a targeted market or schools or. funerals they still try to take out the airport they they targeted it that. they thought it today they have thought if. they gave this to him in court so they tried to disable. the airport.
6:03 pm
i mean without any civilian casualty but if this airport still will be allowed in and if. not this. this warning i believe that they are the one who takes responsibility because as they talk there so can i just warning just when it closes and i will they try to jump in here from hussein because our time is limited i just i just want to clarify this this warning that was put out to the media by the. spokesman. are they going to do next are they saying that they're going after airports in the united arab emirates as well as saudi arabia. yes they they said the coalition like a united arab emirates was targeted i believe when he had an have a go it's as well. and i say that it's become a legitimate target as opposed to all airports in those 2 country who are the backbone of this already back coalition in yemen has become a target all right hussein and thanks very much talked. hour still ahead on the

6:28 pm
red cross center but i haven't seen another place that provides this kind of research. nobody knows how my life changing this. better than karimov. my daughter there made that claim i've had this leg for about 20 years i've never asked for a new one because i'm used to that. a patient surprised when you tell them that you have a prosthetic leg what him up when my legs are covered and nobody notices anything when i show them my leg that totally surprised by that they don't believe that was an artificial leg that they can walk normally mark for them but then i show them i tell them see my leg is artificial but i still come here and work out how they. first came to the red cross as a 13 year old patient at the time kabul was engulfed in
6:29 pm
a deadly civil war she was shot in the leg 4 times while walking home from her grandmother's house as a minute. when i regained consciousness my leg felt very light i tried to feel it but i realized it had been cut off the sugar will be here and when a woman becomes disabled she becomes invisible people think she can't do anything while at work it was hard for me to accept the situation. i couldn't accept that i could have killed myself on the hope she would. instead the red cross offered to train her as a physiotherapist when she finished high school that was almost 25 years ago since then she has helped thousands of patients just like. them because i'm disabled myself i understand their situation and i mean whatever they're going
6:30 pm
through i've already been through it. really how. do you. make them. the same to has a policy of hiring people with some kind of disability just like their patients some of the staff have been crippled by in the says like polio many like a victims of the country's relentless war. for as long as i can remember that has been fighting in afghanistan and it will never end. the day by day the number of our patients is growing it's because of the war landmines and suicide attacks. are not. even by afghanistan's grim standard the
6:31 pm
situation here is becoming increasingly deadly a record number of civilians were killed and injured last year in attacks by the taliban isis and pro-government forces some of the most brutal violence has accrued right here in kabul. with incidents like rockets and bombs on. we've seen a lot of these horrible incidents it's been hard but we've gotten used to it. through good old the taliban has allowed to stay open. a month after they took power the taliban came to our center they visit at the mail and. they were satisfied with our work and we carried on without problems.
6:32 pm
but in afghanistan nothing is guaranteed. days into our visit we hear about a disturbing development the taliban have just announced their spring offensive against the afghan government and the military so what this means is that we're likely to see a lot more attacks but they're also saying here that the red cross will no longer be protected this is a really serious problem for the star and the patients at the center. it's not long before the news spreads are going to be more than just the removal of the murray river in the center is. in the women's department crema is also briefing they get you michel almost and i was going to. give them something on anything but the. closer they know the things that my reason for them to bother to listen to them not to cut a long. enough that. you guys worried at all about your safety i mean one
6:33 pm
we don't need all of us to. realize that a mom of the. 100 it might listen closely that it was. one of the shots that was. one of the stars he is seaman faced i'm struggling to understand why the taliban would ban the work of a humanitarian organization especially one that helps disabled afghans. it's too risky for us to ask the taliban in person so we called a spokesman you recently revoke the security guarantees for the red cross why did the taliban decide to do that. says the red cross has failed to deliver the medicine and services it had promised
6:34 pm
the red cross says they can't respond because they're still negotiating with the taliban. what we do know is that the organization supports clinics across afghanistan in areas where it's difficult to access any of the health care most of the people that work at the red cross and certainly all of the patients are afghans including members of the taliban and your families are you hurting your own people by taking this step. but just weeks after this phone call the taliban did attack an american aid organization in kabul killing at least 5 people all of them afghans. back at the red cross there's no sign of things flowing down the need is simply too
6:35 pm
great. afghanistan has one of the highest rates of disability in the world last year a record 12000 people sought help from the several rehabilitation centers across the country. people like isra and you say if you can't afford private treatment. you're on top of egypt had you went to. the office you know. there was ok. it's a big day for the boys they're about to try on the new devices for the 1st time. they pretty excited and they're not the only ones. this little boy has just been given his you lick and you can hardly white losers.

6:37 pm
just accept it has to be really for the future she has treated thousands of patients like is struck he tells him the secret to his recovery is his mind why he should work beautifully could knock her off and i mean to me to me for making as much of a robot because the. mom must be quite accustomed. to her point out of what sort of wonderful music and money you make out of the beginning i am a shack 0.0 point autists by human goodness for that this meeting is in the given that this make. it nice one i'm with the 1st pallone maker the middle opponent the middle of the pit the hottest one is in the hospital for lack of any 24 cutting that this is his mo tooth it's a choice that sugar love faced himself he's ago when he was just 17 he stepped on

and regulations of the international community and has created new threats for the region and the world. mohammed al is standing by in muscat in amman has monitor developments in the iranian capital and we'll talk to those here in just a couple minutes but 1st let's go to rome 1st it will come at that meeting comes down where president rouhani was speaking and robin president rouhani wasted no time in lashing out at the allegations. yes and a very good platform for him to do so here at the shanghai cooperation organization summit because he's effectively among allies accusing the united states of providing a globe offering a global threats to security security and those thoughts or feelings repeated all supported by senior leaders at the summit today including sodomy putin and president he jingping of china early. mr rouhani

6:53 pm
a picture from bishkek let's get the view from tehran now of course what dosage of bari joins us now no one else have iranian officials been say. well as you mentioned we've heard from the iranian foreign minister zarif who says these allegations are absolutely baseless there's no facts to any of them they haven't provided enough evidence to accuse us and what that's the alarming thing and we've also heard from the iranian delegation to the united nations that issued a statement saying the united states must stop what they call war mongering and they categorically deny the claims made by the u.s. government that iran had anything to do with thursday's incidents in the gulf along of course the iranian foreign ministry spokesperson up us mousavi also said that the security of the strait of hormuz is the responsibility of the iranian navy and the revolutionary guard it's a very very important strategic point for the islamic republic
6:54 pm
a 5th of the oil world's oil passes through there on a daily basis over $70000000.00 barrels of oil per day so the security of that area is very important to them and for anybody to carry out this kind of attack is in attack on them in their their work in that area specifically this is something the iranians have denied any involvement in they say the timing of the incident on thursday is very very curious because at the same time the attacks were carried out the iranian foreign minister the president and the visiting japanese prime minister shinzo off they were meeting with iran's supreme leader ayatollah khomeini and the japanese prime minister had a message from u.s. president donald trump and the iranian supreme leader with did not even respond to that message and was not interested at so all these events and they say is an attempt to force iran to come to the negotiating table but it will not make them come that door so that it's very much of the interim let's switch over to muskets mohamed is standing by there in my head we have this this grainy video that the
6:55 pm
united states has released what's been the reaction to the. well. the world is holding its breath bracing for something to happen next developments on the part of the americans because it is the americans now that are taking the initiative by accusing the iranians of having been behind this incident the attacks yesterday the destroyer bainbridge is approaching that agent and they have already sent an aircraft carrier and about $1500.00 troops to the talks they already have in the region so that that he actually is to come the intentions of the americans have not yet been revealed according to analysts and observers it's a dangerous escalation dangerous expectations because as dr said this is the most one of the most strategic regions in the world because of those oil supplies that are channeled through it and it has seen wars in the past that caused deceptions in
6:56 pm
oil supplies and we have seen the oil prices rising by about 30 percent already so the it's a lot of tension in this region here and everybody is expecting the worst perhaps under us the americans may call you would turn on their accusations the world is waiting for more evidence the russians have said that it's too early to jump to conclusions and to make those accusations the america has its allies here in the region and they are also pushing for more escalation including the saudis there are teased israelis even the british also yesterday they said they did they believe in the american version of events so i mean it's a dangerous escalation but we have yet to see action if the americans are intending to really follow their words and accusations with action are going to have it thanks very much reporting there from muscat where the incident in the gulf of man was discussed at the u.n. security council let's hear now from mike hanna who has a report from new york. proceedings at the u.n.
6:57 pm
security council were dominated by the news of explosions on board 2 tankers in the gulf of oman the session wish to discuss cooperation between the league of arab states and the u.n. but most speakers reacted to events in the gulf including the un secretary general facts must be established and responsibilities clarified and they for that is something the world cannot afford is a major confrontation in the gulf region. a thinly veiled accusation of responsibility was made by the arab league secretary general. of the moderate some parties in the region are trying to instigate fires in our region and we have to be aware of that i mean the russian ambassador insistent that there's a conscious strategy to undermine diplomatic moves aimed at reducing tension in the gulf and you know pretty much what it's a little loosely would it would there is a need to come together to achieve one of the most important tools before us today
6:58 pm
you know launching regional dialogue into the stablish in a security architecture in the persian gulf we're currently according to our view of the tensions are artificially fueled and inflamed around iran. if you rejected at the u.s. state department where iran was directly accused of responsibility for the attacks this is estimates based on intelligence the weapons used the level of expertise needed to execute the operation recent similar raining attacks on shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication working the acting u.s. ambassador to the united nations was asked by the secretary of state to call for an meeting of the security council and law enforcement. it's not just the latest attacks that were in discussion behind closed doors the overarching question is whether all parties to the longstanding dispute with iran are sincere in their publicly stated preference for
6:59 pm
a peaceful diplomatic resolution. iran rejects the u.s. accusation that attacks on shipping lanes are part of its widest strategy in a regional power struggle if so then the question remains who is responsible my kind of al-jazeera united nations is indeed the question remains let's speak to the who's professor world studies at the university of tehran joins us now from turn on the 3 saudi welcome to the program iran as quick to deny as the united states to accuse what's your sense of your sense of what's going on but as you know in the past the iranian leaders have said that the vetting to close this data for moves if u.s. pressure on iran continues and escalates iran then the those have said in the past that if they're not able to sell oil other countries should not be able to do so
7:00 pm
yes so we have facts like that you also have the fact that what i what you heard by going to just jump in there would only go by that to have them if i could just jump in the united states let me just say what do you mean by that 1st point about the iran has said that they would be interested in in the closing the strait of hormuz you suggesting that this could be an attack that has been orchestrated by the iranian government to enable that to happen. what i'm suggesting is that we have hunted extinct facts we have some facts that in the past this the iranian leaders have talked about closing this state up foremost because of the economic pressures we have the fact that they have said that if they're not able to serve others for them be able to do so you also have the fact that iran is not interested in a military confrontation with the united states you also know that iran is trying to go around the sanctions that the u.s. has imposed on iran and japan historically has been.
