5:04 pm
votes are still being counted and the latest update shows the 2 main parties prime minister benjamin netanyahu could and the blue and white benny gantz tied both of many options for a coalition and there's even talk about trying for a unity government minus netanyahu smith joins us live in west jerusalem and a brand is in the occupied west bank but we begin in tel aviv with this report from harry force at. the music blared benjamin netanyahu smiles but more than 5 hours after voting finished it was clear this was no victory even if he was far from ready to admit defeat in such. a government committed to the jewish state there neither will your can there be a government that relies on. arab parties but the exit polls suggest he doesn't have the numbers to dictate he may not be given 1st chance to form a government 5 months ago benjamin netanyahu waited several hours before making his speech waiting for the numbers to swing in his favor this time he's waited longer
5:05 pm
for the numbers appear to it's what every other direction 5 months ago he made a victory speech this time it was a speech of defiance it seems clear that his grip on power has weakened believed to be ticked off at the opposition blue and white headquarters the mood was very different former army chief benny gantz didn't repeat is premature victory declaration from april instead his term was a man ready for a grave responsibility and if he had thought so we need to be patient it wasn't an easy mission as we see now netanyahu did not succeed in his mission when in comparison proof to the idea of blue and white succeeded big time and is here to stay it was equal vindication for i believe him a lesson you know his former ally you collapse the coalition talks pushed his secular agenda and nearly doubled his israel between 2 parties vote. we have only one option a national liberal government of israel by to new. and and white the
5:06 pm
presumption is that he demand likud 1st replace netanyahu is leader but that's something it shows no sign of readiness to do. able. to cobble netanyahu is the leader of the liquid support for him is strong and in times of crisis it gets stronger it all came after a friend etic final day of campaigning against aping netanyahu is tactics urging supporters off the beach telling him his party was on the verge of defeat and you know who seemed to spend the day in one long emergency broadcast on social media and in person repeatedly warning his right wing base that arabs were voting in great numbers. the leader of the mainly palestinian israeli joint list iman said netanyahu incitement had come at a heavy price causing instead a surge in support it's possible we did see some form of backlash people saying they were going to come to the polls in
5:07 pm
a row so we are here we come and there and this is what we can do in israeli politics or his office says he's due to have talks soon with benny gantz raising the possibility that he could offer him some kind of support benjamin netanyahu spoke on stage of the difficulties and pressure of this campaign with his 1st and hearing on corruption charges jus in 2 weeks and the prospects of fighting them from the prime minister's office now diminished the pressure looks set to intensify al-jazeera television. joins us live now from. the races still too close to call but it looks like the gamble that netanyahu hasn't quite paid off. no it hasn't back in april when he was unable to form a coalition what would ordinarily have happened is that the president would have given the chance to benny gantz to see if he could form a government before the president was able to do that netanyahu dissolved parliament and the gamble the talk was that in the intervening months he could generate enough support to give him
5:08 pm
a majority in the say in the rerun election well it didn't despite this veteran campaign of this very wily campaigner continuing to demonize palestinian israelis for example threatening that if he didn't win there would be a government of leftists all of this this time around didn't work and so the crown is slipping and that sort of the near of invincibility that netanyahu as managed to maintain is being chipped away at and that is significant as we now had into what is going to be a long period of political horse trading to see who is going to be the next prime minister it could be many months before we have a no doubt there but it doesn't say it will take weeks months maybe to form this new coalition just talk us through then the possible scenarios. so what happens now is that the main party leaders they recommend to the president who they would back as prime minister and then the president asks that person to try and form
5:09 pm
a coalition government now what is significant here is 1st of all a large palestinian israeli the arab bloc vote turned out they are now the 3rd largest group in israel's knesset and the leader of that group iman o'dea says he could see himself as the leader of the opposition that means he sees a coalition a unity government in the offing perhaps like by benny gantz and he might lend his support to benny gantz the 1st time and. bloc group in the knesset has done that does that they've got succeeds to do that and pull over some likud supporters and he could form the coalition government we could says they won't go with him but as they see over the weeks the threats that they could end it opposition and up in opposition and so many could members might finally make the jump in joint accounts netanyahu by the way quickly can still survive he could pull support from labor or from others in blue and white and he could hang on as president desire i say is
5:10 pm
that veneer of invincibility is chipped away at it gets harder the netanyahu to persuade people to join into our bernard thank you for that let's cross over now to need to abraham who is live for us in ramallah media so what's the feeling there on the ground amongst palestinians does the election mean anything to them. it's safe to say that many of them have met it with a feeling of indifference yesterday the palestinian prime minister and some of the she spoke about the elections and said that there isn't much difference between between the 2 main characters in these elections saying that none of them had ending the occupation on their agenda we've also heard from the p.l.o. those 3 general saw it apart who says that these elections are between 2 people one who wants to deepen what he calls up or tied meaning benjamin netanyahu and another meaning bennigan's who wants to continue and preserve this that the school as in keeping the israeli occupation of the palestinian territory now if we move from the
5:11 pm
official level to the palestinians on the street it doesn't seem that this is an issue as they follow they believe that whatever comes next the situation is not going to get any better even if they think it might even go worse the main concern according to i mean told by a palestinian organization that palestinians are facing is a financial issue the palestinian authority has been facing a financial crisis that cut its ability to pay its civil servants regularly or to media abraham there in ramallah made up thank you meanwhile israeli security forces have shot and killed a palestinian woman in the occupied west bank the woman died of our injuries in the hospital when this is told down to 0 the woman lay on the ground for at least 15 minutes without receiving any medical help adding that the come in the military checkpoint just north of jerusalem according to israeli media the woman was allegedly waving a knife the israeli soldiers were injured. iran's president says who the fighters
5:12 pm
launched an attack on all of foreigners in saudi arabia as a warning that it should withdraw from the war in yemen some rouhani made the comments on wednesday alongside another denial that iran was involved. the yemeni people reacted they hit a location they didn't hit hospitals so why they didn't hit schools they didn't hit the sun are bizarre they attacked an industrial site to warn you you should learn a lesson and do something to stop the war meanwhile saudi arabia says normal oil production will resume within weeks rather than months francis sending experts to the country to investigate who carried out the attacks and how they did it the kingdom is joining the u.s. led maritime coalition to secure the gulf and that focuses on key shipping lanes including the strait of hormuz which is used to transport a 5th of the world's oil but it comes ahead of a visit by u.s. secretary of state mike pompei or he's going to saudi arabia to share information about the attack says this report. the men in charge of saudi arabia's energy
5:13 pm
sector briefed embrace to give a republic statement be here to reassure global markets after saudi oil infrastructure was attacked on saturday. half of its oil production was wiped out that's 5 percent of the wolves daily output they reassured investors output would return to normal by the end of the month. of the over the last 2 days the damage has been contained and more than half of the production capabilities that were damaged have been restored therefore the company will fulfill all of its commitments to clients during this month the comments come to crude oil prices which had seen the biggest one day jump in history on monday but can they fulfill their promises i'm pessimistic in terms of full production we're talking over 5.7 to 5 point $5000000.00 barrels a day this is a tremendous amount this was the largest drop in the oil production anywhere in
5:14 pm
history who the rebels took responsibility as payback for the war in yemen but it is just well agendas that we demand keeps it taking saudi arabia with ballistic missiles and drones until the end of this oil supremacy that they have. but the u.s. and saudi arabia suspect iran is the true culprit certainly looking like around was behind these attacks. our intelligence community at this very hour is working diligently to review the evidence u.s. secretary of state mike com payor has been deployed to saudi arabia the state department said he will coordinate if it's to counter iranian aggression in the region despite iran denying any involvement foreign minister job and zarif tweeted in defense of the who these the u.s. isn't upset when its allies mercilessly bomb babies in yemen for over 4 years with its arms and its military assistance but it is terribly upset when the victims
5:15 pm
react the only way they can against the graces oil refineries. but for saudi arabia and the us any attack on the world's energy supply is a red line crossed it will not decide how to punish whoever they determine is the perpetrator chela bellus al-jazeera same as rather joins us live with more reaction from tehran zain let's talk 1st about this letter that the iranians sent to the americans via the swiss embassy in tehran declaring in react to any aggression against iran what more do we know. well there and i think it's important to remind viewers that of course the united states and iran have had no diplomatic ties for the past 40 years so the swiss embassy is the go between for those 2 credit countries and with a letter that was delivered via the swiss ambassador iran made it clear to the united states that it denied all the allegations that it had anything to do with
5:16 pm
this attack on saudi aramco facilities last week and it's condemned the allegation by the united states that that was the case now in saying that in saying that they also added that any sort of attack any anyone that would use this as an excuse to attack any targets of belonging to or inside iran iran's government said that it will react immediately that it will retaliate immediately and it will not limit its military response to the source of that attack now this is standing iranian policy that has been the case for many years and here's what it means what iran is trying to communicate to the united states and its allies in the region is that it will consider any u.s. facilities any in host countries around the region as fair game as targets and so it's a warning a very strong one being issued by the iranian government is one that they reiterate over and over again of course the timing now is very significant as the tensions in the region continue to ratchet up and the message being sent by iran is hopefully
5:17 pm
to try and bring other countries in the region into the conversation many of those who are u.s. allies also have strong ties continue to have strong economic and bilateral ties with iran the hope being by those countries no doubt that to iran in washington will let cooler heads prevail and then just briefly the iranian president hassan rouhani says that who fired has launched their attacks against saudi arabia as a warning to get out of the war in yemen what most even saying briefly. exactly the government here has made it clear that despite the fact that this fight has been going on for years that hundreds of billions of dollars in weapons by saudi arabia by the u.a.e. backed by the united states and others have been spent to cause bloodshed among civilians that it is simply not going to work to defeat the yemeni people president hassan rouhani in a cabinet meeting this morning calling the yemeni people strong and vigilant saying
5:18 pm
that this was not the solution to move forward calling for negotiations something his foreign minister divides the reef has also said over and over again now there's very little doubt that the u.s. that iran and yemen are indeed allies but again president hassan rowhani reiterating his point that despite that iran had nothing to do with an attack that they say was claimed by yemen's he fighters zain thank you notes also the coming on al-jazeera including the children's home that became a mass grave now survivors threaten legal action to uncover the truth in the stay with us. hello the rain is trying to edge into the main island of japan from both sides but not much to it i don't think enormous progress will be made for the size of the
5:19 pm
smaller islands or has been a lot of rain in these small hours of japan but the main island is not so the circulation as you see is trying to drag in a bit of winter but it's a long way north still even in sapporo we've got 60 degrees and lot of us talk 90 the cloud spreading out of northern china is mostly cloud it's cold enough on the tibetan plateau for snow but the rain might fall out of it for beijing across the korean peninsula that rain is edging up towards the far south of the nonsense of palo soccer might see a bit of rain late in the day friday but mostly the picture dry continues for hong kong the humidity is dropping the temperatures are still in the low thirty's what rain there is on the high ground in western china of course is the snow again evening viet-nam and then also at least a stop to looking particularly wet that is because the main rain bout the seasonal rain is now here from the northern philippines back through vietnam cambodia and into central and southern thailand this cloud to the south of that which might allow a little bit of rain thunder
