2:04 pm
said that the it has carried out weapons and also support for the, for it's for the, you know, it's back to this is in the in, so cause rob, we're while the us saudi that quality and said that the, if the, this, this was a medical ship. so now now we are, we're dissing, a new development that is now have attacked the india, but also they have attacked 3, a fuel or low res. these at which it is developing in, in a dangerous way, that the, that has the, this, with this conflict and has spilt over to reach lunar arbors to reach the, it has continued to reach the saudi arabia. a significant development in be able to announce and declared that the unc you head of healthy drones or did just our minutes ago. so the a we,
2:05 pm
we hope and also observers and political analysts so that this conflict could reach an end especially that this attacks and also converts continue to. busy continue to have its impact on yamini civilians. thank you. thank you so much for that. my model at ab with the view there from santa a significant development as mom had said there, let's discuss this further now with hash m, i had by was covered the war in yemen extensively. as mom had said, there. busy the whole thieves have regularly targeted charge a radio re sent me. but the u. e had somewhat disengaged from this conflict as of in her the last few minds. why would the hoof east target them now? so basically, when the conflict started in 2015, the ameritas and the saudis were the key arctic tre. architects of the coalition, there was bill to earth, to, to defeat the who. this van, the emerald is started to play quite a significant role in human until 2019 following some of the major at us,
2:06 pm
of the hoses inside saudi arabia than the, the amount is said. it's about time for us to pull out. that is, i think that even though the ameritas managed to withdraw some of the troops very mean quite in rental, for example, we know that some of the elite forces india men are backs trained. i file and financed by the united arab emirates. and they are part of the operation which is underway now. in shop were and in mad if this is an indication that the earth is a really frustrated with the images, i will if i don't want to drag them at his back into the car, i was in touch with him, hammered out of the cellar. just a while ago, his, the key is spokesperson of the hoses. and his said, the operation to day is a message to the ameritas that we are going to do whatever it takes to make it extremely difficult for them inside the u. a. and to push all the international companies to pull out from the abilities unless the amortize stop interfering militarily politically and economically in saudi arabia. so this is a, this is
2:07 pm
a message from the host, these to the, to the you a, as a significant development in the company, you know, for them to be able fall after all these years. we're talking about almost 7 years to send drones into the saudi arabia or into the u. e. the masses that were far from defeated. this is definitely going to further strained relations between the amenities and the, and iran because you know, iraq, if the merits and saudi arabia have been seeing that the health is, would never have been able to launch those drawers. had then not been given technology and support from the iranians. now the u. a sates news agency hash m is reporting that at least 3 people have been killed. and 6 others injured in the explosion of that tanker are in abu dhabi, one pakistani and 2 indian nationalist killed in the explosion of the tank. i tracks in apple dally and at least 6 others wounded. so he said a very significant development that the conflict has now reached you a itself. what is the wider implication of this for, for, for the warring image?
2:08 pm
so this is exactly what is happening on the ground as we speak. president obama, so handy. and his troops, backed mainly by the united arab emirates, have lost a major offensive, and then managed to take over the province of sub was, which was under the control of the houses. now they are launching and not a major operation in murray all the way to north to work towards alba, why they're doing this? because until a few weeks ago, if the hotel managed to take control of subway and murder, it was going to be the beginning of the and for the international cognitive government, a massive humiliation for the united arab emirates, and for saudi arabia. now the ameritas managed to sort of reverse those gains by, by the hope is over the last few years at the immediate making quite significant impact, particularly with a lit unit called al amaya, which is financed, backed by and trained by the united arab emirates of this explains why the health, these are frustrated just earlier this month. they seized a ship it or this said,
2:09 pm
this is an eminent to ship with military assets. there been some negotiations to try to b, 23, the ship and release. the 11th crew members earned the and the sir and the earth is hobbies thing. this has to be part of a major political, a deal to put an end to the conflict that is not happening with this particular attack. today we're likely to see further or her escalation in the region and particularly in yemen, were likely to see this as a saw dealers coalition. now, last major attacks against her thes, dickory in murder, and also in the capitol center. and just to recap for our view as well, just joining us now. hashem, at least 3 people have been killed and 6 others injured. according to our m. iraqi officials after a petrol tank explosion in the united arab emirates capitol, abu dhabi, thee or huffy rebels in yemen,
2:10 pm

2:11 pm
and what happened at the time you zealand has seen to surveillance aircraft to assess the damage, australia's also sending a military plane to help. both countries had waited for 20000 metre, high mushroom cloud of ash to lift before take off clearance was given. this is a very challenging time. communications are deeply, deeply affected by the events of the volcanic eruption. it has been felt in other parts of the region. the ash is toxic and has been falling across tongue as islands . everyone's being told to stay in doors. if they can use an immediate need for food also for water because they used to be as well that has been reported. and as a result of that, you know, water sources have been contaminated in most of the islands that have been widespread damage is reported after the erosion triggered astronomy and waves

2:13 pm
those ongoing communication challenges which you've heard about have really hampered out, is to be able to do that as the really normally we would hope that even in way of communication sources down, we would be able to make context by satellite fine, but even that has been hampered from the ash cloud that exists there. despite that we know what our team will be doing on the ground that very well trained. they well prepared and we have essential non food items of the type that would just described . so shell ticket, hygiene kids and necessities. the clean more to necessities, the shoring up shelters that might have been damaged from unami wise enough, but $1200.00 families initially, pre positions there and conger, which app teams on the ground will be making assessments and distributions as we speak. so even though we can't speak with them, we know what that would be doing. the situation further afield is really concerning
2:14 pm
for us because that window of opportunity to reach those people was the bulk volcano itself is still volatile and waltz. you know, going on, those trips to assist damage further afield is really quite difficult. so it's, it's both that are a field communities where that window gets a bit shorter. former ukrainian president, petro, for a shanker, has appeared in court in kiev to fight treason charges. he returned home from poland earlier monday, insisting that he is innocent prosecutor, accused for shank or financing for russian separatists in the east. he says the charges are politically motivated. he 1st came to power on a pro western agenda in 2014. before losing an election by a landslide in 2019 petro book, kosky is a senior fellow at the democratic initiative foundation. he says, there is yet to be evidence released by the prosecution to support the allegations . the timing for the public is ation really is really wrong,
2:15 pm

2:16 pm
