bialik asked trend airports city managed by from. this is deja news live from berlin u.s. president donald trump tweets that the u.s. is a locked and loaded after drone strikes damaged major oil facilities in saudi arabia american officials blame iran even though hooty rebels in yemen claim responsibility for oil prices jumped 19 percent its market opening before dropping players also on the show. a landmark election in tunisia counting is underway after
voters went to the polls in snap the presidential elections the vote is seen as a potential model of peaceful political transition in the north african country. and we look at how hong kong ex-pats living here in berlin are showing solidarity with the protest movement gripping their hometown. next vice or welcome to the program oil prices briefly surged a whopping 19 percent as asian markets opened after a weekend attacks on saudi arabia's oil infrastructure twin drone strikes cut the kingdom's output by half earlier u.s. president donald trump hinted at potential military responses to the attacks.
from 2 tweeted there is reason to believe that we know the culprit we are locked and loaded depending on verification but are waiting to hear from the kingdom but someone has already claimed responsibility rebels based in yemen however the us claims there is no evidence that the attack was launched there and instead blames iran for his part iran's president hassan rouhani suggested the u.s. was being hypocritical for your for joining your foot usual roma americans instead of confessing that they have presence in the region or. in syria in yemen and other areas he has been problematic they accuse the countries of the region. and for more on this story we're joined by adnan tablets have middle east analyst based in dusseldorf adnan thanks for joining us who's the rebels in yemen say they did it but the u.s. accuses iran but it denies any role what's the american motivation here
i guess the messaging coming from d.c. is the continuation of the maximum pressure from pain which in essence says iran is responsible for literally all the ills in the region but obviously also the insecurity in the region so that is i think 1st and foremost the motivation behind well the secretary of state might be 0 said when he leaned you are right after the attacks you know looking forward who think rebels threatened more attacks can saudi arabia protect itself. well i think this is a behind the little situation for the kingdom that it felt it was safe under the u.s. and brother patrick missile systems for these it has to be carried out regardless and in its scope and magnitude i think these attacks happen unprecedented so it's going to be very difficult and delicate indeed for the for the kingdom to also
think about how to respond how to prevent further such attacks and i think the u.s. will have to in fact ensure to protect the kingdom more effectively the u.s. has not ruled out a strike against iran's oil field what do you think the risk of a regional conflict is with washington playing a big military role. and yes what we have been seeing particularly since may this year in iran started to in fact have some deniable action here and there i think both the u.s. and iran will continue. operations that are not necessarily attributable easily so i don't see a major escalation between iran and us going into open conflict but events like this where in fact though these have been behind it but iran might have been supportive of it and similar attacks in retaliation be it in syria or in iraq in lebanon great iranian assets are these things will probably continue to happen and
that makes it dangerous because the entire region will be affected ok middle east analyst at that habitat thanks for that. pleasure do you have you washington correspondent oliver salat says the presidential tweet has not in fact made trump's policy objectives any clearer. president trump's twitter threat is causing confusion the pentagon reportedly urging restraint and observers actually believed the firing of hawkish security adviser john bolton would pave the way for a more conciliatory tone president trumps tweet retching tensions with iran once again his plans of negotiating with iran's president rouhani are becoming more unrealistic while a new war is clearly not in the president's interest it also becomes obvious that the u.s. is lacking a strategy on the middle east and that puts both countries in
a dangerous position that was our washington correspondent all over salat and now to some of the other stories making news around the world turkish president breccia air to one is preparing to host the leaders of russia and the rand for talks on syria acro wants to prevent any escalation of fighting in neighboring syria which could lead to more refugees entering turkey the e.u. is concerned that a new wave of refugees could prompt turkey to scrap a fragile migration to. nearly $50000.00 workers for the u.s. auto giant general motors have gone on strike union leaders said they were going ahead with the industrial action even as more wage talks were planned is the 1st nationwide strike in the auto industry in more than a decade. is widely viewed as a test of one of the world's youngest democracies accounting is under way in the
