11:03 am
there has been a large affirming dropping of the crew towards a life military target important to the coordination of the iraqi military internally the former president. and his militias to create division inside yemen despite the fact that they were unable to sustain any military political or economic gains in yemen or. abu dhabi denies this video is all things. saying there was no missile launch or interception what can be verified is fighting in the capital sana'a. five days of combat between former allies former president ali abdullah saleh and the who think he's dozens have been killed. in alliance with the who face after a popular uprising ended his thirty three years rule in twenty twelve together they took control of sana now they're tearing the city apart. snipers are on rooftops and residential areas while tanks replace commuters on city
11:04 am
streets the u.n. says fighting is so severe medical teams cannot get to the injured and people cannot leave their homes there's reports the u.n. is trying to evacuate at least one hundred forty aid workers but fighting has cut off the port road they have also being coalition airstrikes on santa airport. the coalition bolstered by the new support of the former presidents have doubled down on the iranian backed who think it's the iranian embassy was hit by a rocket on saturday and then who think controlled territory in yemen's north the coalition air strike killed at least a dozen people. if. they targeted my house while there were eighteen to twenty guests my whole family was inside as well as all our cattle everything is gone there's nothing left. but tehran has told salai to rejoin the who the alliance against the coalition says he just wants a quick game to the conflict which is
11:05 am
a volved into the world's largest humanitarian crisis where his motivations are or a power play or as unclear as whether the who things really did launch a missile on abu dhabi dallas al-jazeera. well staying in the region the meeting between the foreign ministers of gulf countries is expected to go ahead in kuwait in the coming hours ahead of a crucial regional gathering qatar's foreign minister says his country is a mere shake to me been one of the tiny will attend the gulf cooperation council summit which starts on tuesday the g.c.c. is in crisis after three members of the us rain severed diplomatic and trade ties with cattle this will be the first summit since that blockade began almost six months ago you need to reach a level of understanding going security principles that everybody is agreed upon and everybody should and you do and should be committed to and then from there we
11:06 am
build on. on it on the next is the model for the cooperation well let's get the very latest of jamaal i shall he said quite city where that meeting is being held i mean this will be as we say one of the first occasions that senior diplomats and leaders from the g.c.c. will be face to face since the cattle blockade began in june now we do we have heard that the qatari amir will be there but who else will be there and what can we expect them to say. well that is the big question everybody's trying to find an answer to sail with which is who exactly will represent the three countries that are boycotting for blockading qatar and have been for the past few months firstly there was a lot of doubts cost over whether this meeting would actually take place the fact that the formula ministers are meeting in the next couple of hours is something which is going to get some predictions of many analysts who thought maybe that this summit would be delayed or indeed canceled for the first time in the g.c.c. history foreign ministers are senior ministers of any country so for them to meet
11:07 am
around one table in the in and of itself to help is something called some sort of a diplomatic breakthrough if we want to call it that because up until now there hasn't been any direct discussions between any senior ministers of any of those countries who's going to attend and sons of heads of states well as you mentioned their shifts i mean one of the sun you of qatar will be attending obviously their meet of coates will be attending and probably a very senior figure was from there are many governments as well the question is as to saudi arabia in the united arab emirates they will delegate to represent them there is two things really could look into this anyway junior position any junior minister representing these countries would not only be seen as their insistence that this conflict will not be resolved but also will be seen by the committees who are the host nation and there is a lot of diplomatic custom as well as our custom here but if the mirror invite somebody expect somebody at his level to attend so anything less than that would be
11:08 am
seen as an insult so that is what many people are waiting to find out in the next twenty four hours or so at the time on meet the qatari foreign minister has been the face of the voice of his nation's position he has some allies in the g.c.c. but what can we expect them to achieve if anything if the blockade is really the only issue up for discussion. well up until now so actually surprisingly it's not even confirm that the blood. will be up for discussion the foreign ministers are going to meet in a couple hours to set the agenda for the summit there's two possible scenarios archer more than two but if we think about it you like the ones either that the blockade is discussed and therefore that's going to be a very heated summit and most likely probably will be closed off to the media when those discussions are taking place or that it is agreed on probably because kuwait has been the mediator in this and trying to do the escalating defuse the situation it could be agreed that well kuwait's mediation continues as
11:09 am
a separate track and this summit convenes without discussing what is a massive elephant in the g.c.c. room which is obviously the blockade in which case it will be just a very. meeting that will discuss other issues of so-called cooperation but in reality everybody knows that without there being the free trade without there being the free movement of people which is essentially the essence the bread and butter of the g.c.c. then anything else that's been discussed in terms of cooperation would just be semantics and not really something that would be fruitful but which is the. kuwait city throughout the day. well less than a week after north korea tested a missile it says it's capable of reaching the entire united states south korea and the u.s. of photons. they've held joint military drills involving about two hundred thirty fighter jets and twelve hundred personnel. outside the south korean base in tech. i'm outside the u.s.
11:10 am
also on air base and we have seen a number of fighter jets flying in and out it's all part of the biggest ever joint u.s. south korean air drills they're part training and part show of force against north korea which of course just on wednesday launched its most advanced ever intercontinental ballistic missile now these drills were planned before that launch took place they take place every year and they always anger north korea which calls them i refer seoul for invasion and indeed before these drills went ahead the north korean foreign minister said that the u.s. was begging for nuclear war by staging an extremely dangerous nuclear gamble on the korean peninsula now these adrenals involve f. twenty two stealth fighter jets f. thirty five and also all together about two hundred thirty warplanes from the u.s. and south korea and also about twelve thousand personnel are taking part. now the palestinian authority want submergence who talks over the possibility that the u.s.
11:11 am
embassy in israel could be moved from tel aviv to jerusalem the arab league or the organization of islamic cooperation and asked to host the meeting u.s. president donald trump is expected to make a decision as early as this week palestinians and arab states say moving the embassy would jeopardize the peace process but it would mean the u.s. recognizes jerusalem as israel's capital palestinians want east jerusalem to be the capital of their future state. meanwhile trump is facing more pressure on the domestic front a politician from his own republican party has joined those warning the president not to tweet about the russia investigations on sunday trump tweeted that he never asked former f.b.i. director james comey to stop investigating his former national security adviser michael flynn testified in june that trump had spoken to him about letting go of the flayed investigation flynn has pleaded guilty to lying of to the f.b.i.
11:12 am
about his contacts with russia he insists he was asked to do so by a c.v. about of tribes transition team trumps also attacked the f.b.i. itself by saying the agency whose reputation is in tatters describing it as the worst in history than estabrook has more from washington d.c. . well these tweets always seem to get the president in trouble and this tweet from yesterday was especially problem because up until yesterday the president claimed that he fired mike flynn back and says he wary because he lied to vice president mike pence about these conversations with the russians now yesterday in the tweet he indicated that he actually fired him as well because of lying to the f.b.i. which raises the question what did the president know did he know that the f.b.i. was in fact investigating when and that is why senator dianne feinstein raised the question of obstruction of justice because a couple of days after flynn was fired the president asked former f.b.i.
11:13 am
director james comey to go easy on him because he was a good guy now today the white house is saying that actually the president didn't fashion that tweet yesterday that that came from an attorney and the last people within the president's own party are telling him to go easy on the tweeting i would just say this is present there's an ongoing criminal investigation comey may be part of it you tweeting comment regarding ongoing criminal investigations at your own peril i'd be careful for you mr president i've watched this and lindsey graham said that he didn't think that the f.b.i. was dysfunctional although he did raise questions as to whether when lying to the f.b.i. constituted a crime well still to come here on al-jazeera we'll get the latest from pakistan where the u.s. defense chief is holding security talks with talks leaders plus songs is there a visit a place described as know about where really good refugees are stuck between a bug like this.

11:15 am
