10:03 am
many decades with millions of victims. the response from the security council seemed very guarded the current president the italian ambassador read out a statement strongly condemning the missile fired by the who fears but barely mentioning the country responsible for the blockade you have strongly condemned the missile by the who thing is given mr low costs dire warning isn't it now time to strongly condemn the country that is blockading yemen not allowing the humanitarian aid in saudi arabia. the focus by u.s.g. law. was absolutely on the humanitarian aspects of the can flick we also know that any and all military escalation army terry attack is heading back on the humanitarian situation so of course this is why we have decided to issue these
10:04 am
presidents. the u.n. says yemen is the worst humanitarian disaster in the world after years of conflict and an epidemic of cholera people in who data port where aid food and medicine should be flowing into the country have a sense of despair. people have no jobs no life and the world is almost at a standstill almost finished insult to injury they closed down the port a sad case that the price of a bag of flour was seven thousand reales it's now eight and a half there was and reality means you know the price of a chicken welcome we do they guard help us mr comments from this podium brought some of that reality from yemen to the security council but for now they've responded with very carefully chosen words rather than any concrete action james out jazeera the united nations. questions are being raised about the whereabouts of lebanon's prime minister saad hariri following his resignation in saudi arabia on
10:05 am
saturday a source at beirut's airport told al-jazeera that hariri was not on his plane when it arrived in the capital on thursday it's believed that the plane passed through europe rather than arriving directly from the saudi capital on tuesday had only attended talks in abu dhabi before returning to riyadh let's take you live out of beirut as it was in a harder is there. where is he. well now office is even denying that his private jet landed in beirut international airport really it's a question everybody is asking where is the prime minister is he coming back to lebanon as far as we know he is in the saudi capital riyadh the last time he was seen was on tuesday when he was in the u.a.e. holding talks with rulers in abu dhabi his office then said that he flew back to riyadh so a very very confusing picture his aides have been saying he's coming back to lebanon but they're not giving a specific time or date since his sudden announcement that he was resigning from
10:06 am
office on saturday from the saudi capital so his whereabouts are unknown now why is it important for him to return it is important because the constitutional process has been put on hold the president of the country is refusing to accept his resignation until he comes to lebanon in person and explains the circumstances behind his resignation so the process is on hold the president is refusing to hold consultations to appoint a new prime minister and even appointing a new market prime minister is going to be difficult because you need a candidate accepted to all sides in order for stability to return to this country so the country has been destabilized a lot of uncertainty and people are worried. posters are springing up with messages of support for saddam heavy and has been for days since he announced his sudden resignation from the saudi capital this neighborhood the lebanese capital beirut is one of heidi the strongholds. we all hope how do the returns to the
10:07 am
country on to. we hope the government functions again because people put off their plans like buying a car on a flat no one knows what the water will bring. regardless of whether they support or oppose how d.t.s. decision to step down people here are worried the resignation is linked to the saudi iranian rivalry in the regions past attempts to weaken iran's lebanese ally hezbollah has led to violence. and i have a small problem. we were upset when we heard the news of the resignation it was just like when his father was killed there was a political earthquake we fear there could be an attack we want him to return. already people are complaining that the pace of the economy has slowed down in a country already struggling with financial problems. it is ignition is linked to regional developments but it's affecting us from the first day our business suffered we need a new solution to save the. saudi arabia has made it clear it intends to confront
10:08 am
iran and it seems it will start in lebanon. no one knows what saudi arabia will do next there will be a war but they can't for example the tens of thousands of lebanese working in the gulf. saudi arabia no longer considers hezbollah as its only enemy but all those who don't go away and take action against the. resignation was a saudi move against has the last it brought down a government riyadh considered too close to iran now saudi arabia wants lebanese leaders to sideline and curb hezbollah's powers but that is easier said than done hezbollah is a powerful political party with an armed wing stronger than the national army lebanon has seen turbulent years political crises wars late last year there was a rare deal between saudi arabia and iran to leave lebanon at the sidelines of their power struggle that deal is now
10:09 am
a thing of the past and tangling lebanon's future with a deepening regional crisis. so this is really not the first time they tried to curb or clip. past attempts have failed and on some occasions they've led to violence and this is why people are so worried and they're asking you know what are the next steps saudi arabia intends to take to pressure the lebanese to take on hezbollah. thanks to that life in beirut. syria's army and militia from iraq have encircled the eisel controlled city of. it's located on syria's border with iraq that is i sliced urban area in syria this video released by pro syrian government media shows fighting in the surrounding area on saturday let's go live now to turkey syria border of zeros a suburb in java is following developments from there so. what's the latest in who's in control of that city. adrian in the last ten hours we've heard claims and
