3:48 am
sober life is going to suffer the closure dependency we have a mismatch between the way we. and the reality of the 21st century united in your. comedy of the persons that are sending out you should be child should not i said i'm deaf child soldiers relocate on al-jazeera. saudi arabia presents debris it says proves the attack on its oil facilities was sponsored by iran but did not come from yemen. this is al jazeera live from london also coming up. israel faces the possibility of
3:49 am
a unity government and even the end of netanyahu his reign after another inconclusive election. shock and grief in liberia after a fire to school who kills at least 27 while they were sleeping most of them children . and one not even a butterfly sanctuary or wildlife refuge or get in the way as president trump rushes to stop building his border wall. and saudi arabia says it has undeniable evidence that iran was behind saturday's attacks on 2 of its oil facilities which cut its oil supply by 50 percent at a news conference in riyadh the defense ministry spokesman displayed deborah he said proved iranian involvement took him out he said 18 drones and 7 cruise missiles were fired from the north and could not have come from yemen but up was
3:50 am
launched from the north. and was of course the i believe a small sort of bite ya ya's edition the sponsorship of terrorist group. it's our friends in money time could more as the president that called for it to us all we call we call up all of the international community to acknowledge your own law in a city and the region. well yemen's hooty rebels who say they carried out the attack gave their own news conference dismissing the evidence presented by saudi arabia as fabricated. the destruction in the oil installations is bigger than what has been said by them the americans have tried to minimize the effect the damage is bigger than you can see in the photos the fires raged for more than 12 hours in the aggressors could not control them saudi arabia and the united arab emirates were regret this if our leadership issues orders to the armed forces to launch an attack
3:51 am
in the coming days or months of the u.a.e. we regret this a lot we have tens of targets within our large bank of targets in dubai and abu dhabi they could be hit any time you have to stop your aggression against yemen and then you will enjoy peace and security and we will enjoy it. and was it iran's president was also quick to tweet a response saying saudi arabia proved quote it knows nothing i said begun tehran has more. iran were very much see the saudi press conference as an attempt to go on international support and opposition against iran from the outset the spoken english questions were taken from english speaking journalists and the saudi language was very much that this was an attack by the iranians on civilian infrastructure and that iran was putting civilian lives at risk but when the sides were pushed to the north sides with those missiles and drones were going from the saudis were unable to definitively state that it came from iran they only said that
3:52 am
it was from north and did not originate from yemen but they raney a narrative has been that this is a rebel attack against saudi arabia saudi arabia have been bombing yemen and this is a rebel group that's carried out attacks against saudi arabia and iran will say that this is an embarrassment to saudi arabia the billions of hundreds of billions of dollars of always mainly from the united states and they were unable to stop this attack but so far saudi arabia has blamed iran but hasn't been able to really point the finger and say this is where the missiles and drones were going from iran will say that the allies of this and even if it is proven that the weapons are does that mean iran was behind the attack iran has warned that any attack against iran by the united states would meet and a major response and not only an immediate response to said that they will not only respond to the source of the attack meaning that any countries in the region that host united states assets or bases may also be targeted. meanwhile your sexual
3:53 am
state might pompei as arrived in saudi arabia he met saudi crown prince mohammed bin in jeddah to share intelligence on the attacks ahead of that meeting president donald trump announced a further escalation of u.s. sanctions on iran let's get more now from our white house correspondent can really help me what would we know about these new sanctions president trump is from saying . that what we 1st learned about them on twitter where donald trump makes most of his policy announcements in recent days and weeks this is no exception that there would be new sanctions on iran for the attacks on the saudi oil infrastructure that took place over the weekend but at the same time once again the u.s. president not offering any concrete evidence as to why the united states continues to point the finger at iran given its denials so even though there has been no evidence provided that even as the president has said earlier this week that he
3:54 am
doesn't want war he was speaking in los angeles the tarmac of the los angeles airport he was asked by reporters for further elaboration about next steps with iran and he discussed the imminent sanctions. i did will be. very significant saying don't do it and well. we'll be announcing it over the next 48 hours while there are many options as you know there are many options and this is the ultimate option and their options are a lot less than that and we'll see where the very powerful position right now we're in a very very powerful position and can really trump whose new national security adviser will be. he did that on social media as well and you saw him as he was speaking there standing alongside the new national security adviser and his name is robert o'brian not a household name but certainly well known in circles for foreign diplomats and the foreign policy community particularly in washington he's
3:55 am
a seasoned diplomat the president saying that he has an excellent track record when it comes to hostage negotiations where he had been working at the state department and many people are saying this is a positive sign lauren in the midst of these heightened tensions between washington and tehran the possibility that there is still a window for a deescalation of these tensions even potential discussions which the u.s. president the past has said he's willing to do to even sit down with iranian leadership and well the official position of the white house right now is that this is not the case that there will be no discussions at the outcoming u.n. general assembly for example we do know that this is being viewed here in washington as a possibility for that in the future given the appointment of robert o'brian as the national security advisor. committee how could thank you very much indeed.
3:56 am
israel's 2nd election this year has also failed to produce a clear winner leaving a question mark over who will become prime minister weeks of coalition talks and are likely before a new government can be formed with more than 90 percent of votes counted the center left blue and white party led by benny gantz has 32 seats while benjamin is now whose likud party is just behind on 31 netanyahu bloc looks set to control 55 of parliament's $120.00 seats or guidance and his natural partners would have $5661.00 seats are required to secure a majority in parliament or former defense minister avigdor lieberman looks set to be the king make it he's calling for a unity government comprised of his israel but a new party likud and blue and white but dance has ruled out joining in a straight with netanyahu as likud leader or a force it reports from tel aviv. benjamin netanyahu might be down but he's not out not yet before
3:57 am
a meeting with senior members of his likud party he said he'd agreed to form a bloc of right wing and ultra orthodox religious parties along with likud as a basis for a new government under his leadership there are one or 2 options either a government headed by me or a dangerous government that's leaning on the arab parties at this moment more than any other and in the face of the security and political challenges that are on ahead it's forbidden that a government will be formed that is leaning on the and he zionist arab parties the bloc in question would give him 55 seats in the israeli parliament or knesset still 6 short of the 61 needed to form a majority coalition it's a rebuke to netanyahu former ally avigdor lieberman who's insisted that his party. likud and the opposition blue and white combine to form a secular unity government yes sure conclusion is clear all that we have said during the election campaign is coming true there's only one option a national unity government a liberal broad government we will not join any other option. but if netanyahu is
3:58 am
refusing as he clearly is now to join that option where does he get the 6 seats he needs for a government i mean operettas left wing labor alliance temptingly has just that number but he refused again on wednesday to sit with netanyahu benny gantz has said his blue and white alliance with $32.00 seats will stay together and his secularist partner pede would be unlikely to serve with netanyahu ultra-orthodox allies all day with him the fears were built we will wait another day or 2 and wish the people of israel a good and necessary unity government that the system will calm down a little bit and we will move along. dance's own prospects could be improved if a mainly palestinian israeli joint list now the 3rd biggest party in the knesset recommends him for prime minister it could even be a step on the road to what its leader iman order says he wants to head the official opposition netanyahu post. election play is certainly no time to carry on making the political weather but it is a sign that this is a crisis for a man who in just 2 weeks faces his 1st pre indictment corruption hearing he's also
3:59 am
canceled his appearance at next week's united nations general assembly in new york staying home no doubt to focus on coalition building but also perhaps to ensure that his likud party stays in line behind him are a force that al-jazeera wester a civil. engineer a senior political analyst joins me live mr just yet another an election that we back to square one was it slightly different this time i think slightly different in the sense that in the one hand we have liquid basically losing to white and blue party 2. we are in a 2nd chance and i think the 3rd one is going to be almost improbable because no one in israel wants to have a 3rd election within a year and 3rd because i think now there's a sort of a greater conviction if you world that only a national unity government or i should say a national jewish unity government that is needed that is stable that is that is
4:00 am
possible at this point in time most probably under the leadership of benny gantz the head of the party which in essence means that the seasoned for therm prime minister the longest serving prime minister in israel is basically out of the door expired gone this time is up so what about in this election we saw that the arab parties running under a single lines that appeared to work as a strategy for them how significant is that absolutely the last summer did not grow well because they were divided they reunited again and they got 13 possibly 14 seats which means now they are if there is a national unity government not only they are the 3rd largest party but they will be the official opposition party if likud and white the middle party go into coalition and what does that mean official opposition party what in israel there's a norm not necessarily the law but the norm the custom the tradition is that.
