9:02 pm
the world tries to assess who is responsible for attacks on saudi facilities they show almost identical impact points which u.s. officials say indicates a high degree of sophistication in the attack hoochie rebels in yemen have claimed responsibility they've been fighting the saudis and their proxy forces for years in yemen civil war. but some analysts doubt whether the rebels could have launched drones or missiles able to hit the saudi tanks yemen is also to the south of the saudi refineries the u.s. says the satellite images suggest an attack from the north the direction of iraq and the hutu strong backers iran secretary of state mike compared said the u.s. would make sure quote iran is held accountable for its aggression and his boss donald trump took to twitter to threaten those responsible he tweeted there is
9:03 pm
reason to believe that we know the culprit we are locked and loaded depending on verification but we are waiting to hear from the kingdom the saudis later replied in full agreement with washington. capitals that i don't much like all of the initial indications and evidence show view tack was not launched from yemeni territory rebels claim these militias are just a tool of the hands of uranian revolutionary guard they are just pawns that follow view gender of the revolutionary guard and the rainy and terrorist regime but he ran deflected blame. we reject these types of statements and projections the islamic republic of iran has clearly declared that it supports the people of yemen and their rights but to accuse the islamic republic of iran with these attacks and defensive measures is in line with the united states maximum falsehood policy they've adopted after their own failures. oil prices spiked and
9:04 pm
straightest factored in saudi arabia is seeming inability to defend its crucial oil infrastructure and governments including germany's have condemned the attack are for more now let's take your story to the u.s. capitol war correspondent oversoul is standing by in washington good luck to you all over so we've got saudi arabia here saying that the weapons used in this attack came from iran we've got the u.s. saying on the weekend that iran was responsible despite the rebels in yemen saying they did it so how did the americans and the saudis know that they're right. well 1st of all the saudi led military coalition in yemen today said that they believe that it's iran behind these attacks they believe that iranian drones were used and as we've heard in the report they also believe that they strome on the some of these missiles fired off from the drones were came from the direction of
9:05 pm
iran rather than from the direction of yemen that is one important aspect satellite pictures yesterday provided by the american suggest the same but we also have to stress here that the special envoy for yemen of the united nations today said that he is not 100 percent convents there are several other theories around at this point as well and so even the saudi led coalition continues to investigate what they're trying to focus on right now is to make sure where these drones exactly were launched and then this will be a more precise verdict that we're still waiting for today you know all over the president of the u.s. tweeting that we are locked and loaded but you know as well as i do we've seen that before back in june drum threatened military action against iran when the revolutionary guard shot down a u.s. drone but he did not follow through with that is this latest threat is it different . well as you know exactly the president is
9:06 pm
a very unpredictable president he's very unconventional to say the least and so he's always up for surprises it would be very. reliable really to suggest right now if this threat that he's posing now is more serious than it was. in recent times in the time you mention when american drone was shot down but we should not forget why the president is doing all busy this and he is really trying to force iran back to the negotiating table at the core of this problem between the united states and iran is the nuclear deal from which the u.s. have pulled out and basically president trump it believes that iran is still working on a nuclear bomb they're trying to get them back to the negotiating table iranian president rouhani ruling that out as long as the u.s. sanctions are still in place so it's very much a difficult situation president trump is trying to raise the stakes here in his
9:07 pm
maximum pressure campaign but as we are witnessing 3 with not much success so far our washington responds all of percent of all the storyboards tonight all over thank you. to politics in israel the country's prime minister benjamin netanyahu has promised to end next all settlements in the occupied west bank as he seeks to boost turnout among his conservative base in the run up to tomorrow's closely fault repeat election it's being held because netanyahu has been unable to form a governing coalition since the last election back in april his main opponents big guns has also been mobilizing support w.'s tanya kremer picks up the story from there. for the 2nd time in a year newly it who runs this family owned cafe will be casting his ballot he hopes that benyamin netanyahu will fund the next coalition government bibi as everyone calls to prime minister sometimes stops by for coffee and pastry at this
9:08 pm
neighborhood cafe like many other likud supporters so he feels see snow and turn a tip to the long serving leader. live in a demolition the man has experienced and this is extremely important it's very important for people here to have someone to run the state as he does it a state like israel with so many challenges and having good relations with world leaders all around the world. following the last election in april and that on yahoo fail to put a coalition together some analysts describe the elections as a fight for his political life not least because of corruption allegations these elections are not about any policy issue at all these elections are shakespear are there to be be or not to be that it will continue to happen even though there are 3 a criminal investigation is hanging over his head he has proven inability to overcome any obstacle before and he'll be able to do that again now. his main rival
9:09 pm
benny gantz head of the center of i.q. and right party emerged as a real threat to netanyahu in the previous election touring the country like here in southern israel guns who served as military chief under netanyahu wants to sway voters with his security record and a different common leadership. this appeals to would. she would like to see a less self-centered prime minister and a more centrist less religious coalition government i need of us then i am voting for benny gantz and his entire team and the party itself because they are politically in the center so they all. you have clean hands. they care about the general public who need a cause. and some make a couple. posters predict a tight race netanyahu is fighting for every vote and he's not going away from
9:10 pm
making election promises his pledge to apply serenity over the jordan valley and the occupied west bank if reelected has triggered heavy criticism of throat taunted as elections been in israel it remains to be seen whether its way small voters of the smaller right wing parties to the leak route most people are very cynical about these promises including the right wing who are in favor of an ex asian they're saying well you've been trying to save a 13 years why would you do it until now and you're telling us a week before the elections suddenly there is a historic opportunity to do this at the cafe all eyes are on election day everybody here knows that there's real power struggle with begin over a coalition building by the day after. are dead for more i'm joined now by our correspondent. in driesell. as we've just seen this election is widely seen as a referendum on benjamin netanyahu how is he fairing in terms of popularity ahead
9:11 pm
of these elections. yes that's true he is. this these elections are really truly about b.b. or yes or no should he stay or should he go and he's actually faring quite well according to polls he is a much more popular potential prime minister than his contender benny guns and i think the reason why he is still popular despite the corruption charges against him despite the indictments and the things he's facing there's 3 reasons i think the 1st reason is security ever since he's been government governing israelis felt relatively safe and i think ever since the 1st and 2nd intifada as you know when buses were blowing up in tel aviv and jerusalem israelis it's been a big trauma for israelis a very very deep seated thing and it's something that israelis still vote. it's the number one issue that israelis think of when they go to the polls and that's something that netanyahu stands for and i think the 2nd thing is that he's been
9:12 pm
given a lot of credit for his ties with with other leaders with world leaders with putin with trump and he's been given a lot of credit for raising israel standing and international community. these this election tomorrow is a repeat because mr netanyahu was unable to form a coalition government after the election back in april is there any reason to think that that problem has been solved that mean will he have a better chance of building a coalition after the election tomorrow. that's a really good question actually i think even israeli analysts watching the news here don't really have an answer to that because according to polls and polls are usually quite accurate in israel. there is the outcomes pretty much the same as last time but there is a good chance of netanyahu forming a right wing coalition the right wing block is has been edging closer in the last polls to getting a majority so it's so it is
9:13 pm
a likely outcome that he will become the next prime minister and form a coalition and other than that there's an option of a unity government that would mean blue and white together with the likud with initially i was ruling party and a 3rd party which is the kingmaker in this election called a new that would be a unity government but netanyahu was actually refused to sit in a unity government so if that happens it would have to be without netanyahu all right of course one of miriam talking in jerusalem on the eve of those people lections in israel thank you. here are some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world a sea of candles has been lit at a ceremony in central warsaw to honor more than 22000 polish officers who were executed by the soviet red army in 1940 they were imprisoned after the soviet union invaded poland in 1939 while the polish army was still fighting hitler's troops for decades the soviets blamed the nazis for the massacre police in indonesia say

9:16 pm
you officials cautioned that johnson had so far failed to come up with an alternative to the backstop. the british prime minister has said he does not seek to delay brax it beyond the current october 31st deadline i am he also seemed to be in a rush to depart from the meeting with his luxembourg counterpart and jovial but was left to hold a joint press conference. to tell them not to hold back his frustration. you can't hold the future hostage for party political gates. be. so no it's its own. mr johnson. he holds the future of all u.k. citizens and every you citizens leaving the u.k. he sense if he stressed once ability you know people people come to you but the clock is ticking use your time voice docs and most prime minister also
9:17 pm
accused johnson of playing the blame game i repeat sprigs it's not my choice it's been a decision from the party it was a decision from david cameron to do it they decide they decide i regret it but don't put the blame on us because now they don't know how to get out of this. situation they put themselves. it's not my choice. talks will continue but the e.u.'s confidence in johnson's ability or willingness to achieve it deal is fading fast. where the leaders of turkey russia and iran met today in the turkish capital ankara for a summit on the syrian regime's push on the final rebel enclave which is known as it live province lattimer putin and hassan rouhani supports syrian president bashar al assad's offensive which has gained momentum in recent weeks the turkish

russian backers so prison edwin is very much afraid there could be another massive refugee inflow and he's also afraid that because of the domestic implications for him to already host $3600000.00 syrian refugees he mentioned today that they have to spend $40000000000.00 on hosting them and that he can't take more people into turkey and that's also due to the fact that anti refugee resentment has been growing here in turkey that has hurt president edwin and his ruling a party we've talked to people here on the streets in istanbul let's listen to what they have to tell us. 2 came in. turkey called host a few g.'s from syria we've reached our limit. our young turkish people are dying while fighting in syria but what are young syrians doing they just sit around here
