3:49 am
on the program turkey presses forward with its deadly offensive in northern syria forcing more than 100000 people from their homes more fallout from the gulf blockade reports that the united arab emirates paid nearly $2000000.00 through a u.s. lobbying firm in a campaign to discredit al-jazeera and a man of courage who ended one of africa's longest running conflicts ethiopia's prime minister wins this year's nobel peace prize. hello thank you for joining us the u.s. is beefing up its military presence in the gulf as tensions simmer between tehran washington and some of the arab world's most powerful countries the pentagon says it's sending 3000 additional troops to saudi arabia to bolster the kingdom's the fences following an assault on the oil facilities last month's september's drone
3:50 am
attacks targeted the heart of the saudi energy industry and briefly knocked out most of its output yemen's who the rebels claimed as those attacks but the u.s. and saudis have been quick to point the finger at iran well my kana is in washington for us with more on this story 1st of all as anything coming out of the u.s. with more specifics on this beefing up of all the military presence. well there has been various comments from the pentagon saying that this is necessary in the light of those attacks in september last month they are sending immediately another 800 soldiers this brings to nearly 4000 the number that have been deployed since that particular attack in the last hour the special representative for iran brian hawk has said that this is essential in the terms of what he brands it
3:51 am
raining in aggression but it's not only extra forces that are going there there's also a patriot missile battery or actually 2 of them a high altitude defense system along with 2 fighter squadrons and an air expeditionary unit so certainly this is a ratcheting up of the u.s. presence in the region remembering as well that this comes at a time when the u.s. is pulling forces out of syria yeah just explain to us how you think this sort of changes the balance of power i guess obviously towards iran but just for generally in the gulf. well it certainly the u.s. making very clear that it is intent on preserving its relationship with saudi arabia that it is going to back it up against all comers and in particular it is an extended threat to iran sending in these added forces to saudi arabia in its ongoing confrontation with iran but it's also a signal that may not be met with much appreciation here in congress it's
3:52 am
a politically dangerous move by president trump to order these further troops in congress has resisted military ties or increased military ties with saudi arabia it has been infuriated by president trump's attempts to circumvent congress on the matter of relations with saudi arabia and certainly there's been great resistance in congress about the withdrawal of u.s. troops from syria so these factors together are likely to see large noise coming out of the congress when they return from their recess mike hanna with the latest on that developing story mike for the moment thank you. well meanwhile iran says one of its oil tankers has been struck off the coast of saudi arabia the state news agency says the vessel which is known as disability was hit by 2 missiles in the space of half an hour the ship was sailing 100 kilometers off the saudi port city of jeddah it's now under way again and the crew are reported to be safe send us

saudi shores the incident comes a day before pakistan's in iran khan is due to arrive in teheran for his 2nd official visit since becoming prime minister he'll be here in an effort to mediate between riyadh and to iran to try to bring down tensions in the region but with this attack iran is likely to have its diplomatic defenses up once again and if there was any hope for a breakthrough during his visit it is now less likely to happen. turkey's president says his forces will not stop attacking kurdish fighters in northern syria no matter what anyone says at least 26 civilians have been killed since the offensive began on wednesday during warnings of a humanitarian catastrophe turkish forces have now pushed 8 kilometers deeper into territory held by the kurdish led syrian democratic forces at least 15 villages have been captured the un says aerial strikes and shelling has displaced more than
