6:34 am
rockets out of gaza. with punitive airstrikes guns calls for a broader military campaign but it's precise outline and prospects of success seem as hazy as the gaza skyline from steroids for all the netanyahu is opponents criticize his gaza policy they have yet to come up with an alternative that is fully believed and supported by the residents of this area and as for the wider israeli electorate that you know his message to them as always been that israel's number one security problem is not gaza but iran and so days before the election netanyahu unveiled new allegations of iranian nuclear wrongdoing the only way to stop iran's march to the ball and its aggression in the region is pressure pressure . and more pressure militarily israel has been ramping up that pressure striking iranian interests not just in syria but in iraq i didn't gauging in across the border escalation earlier this month with iran backed hezbollah in lebanon but all

the risks being forceful on iran is seen as boosting netanyahu electoral prospects there israelis who are disturbed by some of his domestic tactics and he's embroiled in corruption allegations which he denies and so on but on security he seemed to be pretty credible and he's also not seen as a military adventure and he doesn't want to drag israel into major conflict. in recent days though netanyahu iran policy has lost some of its luster donald trump has raised the prospect of a meeting with iran's president a significant blow to netanyahu strategy of maximum pressure the challenge for his opponents is to convince israelis that they can trust such matters to someone else ari force it out 0 southern israel several 1000 people are taking part in an environmental rally in the german city of frankfurt at the start of the annual frankfurt motor show the popularity of electric cars climate protest as a still demanding changes in transportation habits leader of the german green party

says electric vehicles are not powered by a sustainable source this year or to make a say the future might lie in a different kind of fuel when it came reports now from frankfurt. this is the automotive revolution the major manufacturers want the world to see a vista of vehicles with the the low or no emissions for some frank that means a chance to make a knowledge to nostalgia emphasizing how persistent an iconic design can be but above all this year's event is about the mobility electric vehicles the b.m.w. that means putting customer choice at the heart of its green plans in urban areas a battery powered electric vehicle might be the solution and we have great solutions there with our b.m.w. i 3 with our many electric and next year also with our b.m.w. i 3. what's noticeable is hybrid cars are less prominent this year compared to
6:37 am
previous ones hidden behind all electric offerings like the new porsche type can and while a 6 figure sports car like this is clearly not designed for the mass market some analysts say the dominance of fossil fueled cars will soon be over already see that are on a small scale with high growth rates but i think from 2025 to 2030 the basic sales of electric vehicles will climb very rapidly also in absolute numbers not just in relative terms. the importance of the auto industry to germany is clear when motor exports are threatened so too is the country's economic growth and although as a whole germany is not technically in recession right now this is the one sector where alarm bells are ringing which explains why the country's political leaders feel the need to drop in the automobile industry and again even today the ultimate village history is a very important part of our country's economic success and it's above all an
6:38 am
industry which the plies jobs and their full security for hundreds of thousands of people for some people the electric revolution is just a stopgap this is the technology of the future they say hydrogen fuel in motor vehicles that everyone can drive. and yet for now the power of the petrol or diesel engine is still apparent such as here with the new land rover defender whose only green variant a plug in hybrid will be available for next year generally though this year's event seems more about showing it's the electric car which is charging ahead dominic al-jazeera at the frankfurt motor show. still had fire on the program italian champions have their coaches back on the sidelines but peter will tell you why hasn't it wasn't a happy return sorry that's coming out of. oz

6:43 am
2nd half was very difficult for us especially at the start because when your opponent scores a goal just 3 minutes into the game it changes a little bit but i have a good feeling we've got the 3 points after a phenomenal 1st half i think we had it all play goals commitment but we must play like that for 90 minutes as soon as we play like that for 90 minutes is going to be very good for us you know england's cricketers are in a commanding position of the day 3 of the final ashes test against australia they've now extended their lead to 382 runs having bettered all day on saturday joe denny fell just 6 runs short of a maiden test century ben stokes made 67 as indian close on 313 for 8 they need to win this match to level the series although as holders australia have already done enough to retain the ashes. the usa have gone a little with europe off to day 2 of gold solheim cup europe had held

6:48 am
iraqi people generation but it doesn't we have to create farmland for ourselves for iraq it's a matter of survival. a move metric shows us how the iraq a company with life on the edge of the border. my ethiopia on out. 0. in. saudi arabia says it's shut down almost half of its oil production of to drone strikes claimed by yemen's who see rebels. oh i'm mary i'm in london here with al jazeera olds are coming up on the program the bahamas braces for
6:49 am
a tropical storm on berto just 2 weeks after being devastated by a park in dorian. is honored as an african icon but a memorial service for the controversial zimbabwean leader barely fills a 3rd of the stadium. and china targets argentina as a key trading partner as the fallout from washington's trade war with beijing grows . saudi arabia is shutting down half of its oil output off to join attacks on 2 facilities according to the country's energy minister but he says the shortfall will be made up from the nation's oil reserves and they are working on restoring supply yemen's hoofy rebels who've been battling the saudi led coalition for 4 years now say they carried out the strikes the white house says u.s. president donald trump has spoken to the saudi crown prince and has offered his support some avenge of 8 possible. the world's largest oil processing facility went
6:50 am
up in flames after a drone attack amateur videos captured the fire and smoke at saudi aramco has uptake unit it was targeted by drones belonging to yemen's with the rebels with a capacity to process nearly 7000000 barrels a day of big plays a pivotal role in iran because operations and the oil fields in her race which produces a 1000000 barrels a day also came under attack her uncle has not made clear the extent of the damage and its impact on saudi oil production. but state media carried a statement from the interior ministry and said the fires were brought under control saudi arabia has been leading a coalition against the who is in the war in yemen since 2015. the rebels say they want the world to see that they have a list of targets which they can hit in the kingdom look at some. attacks are our right and we warn the saudis that our targets will keep expanding we have the right to strike back in retaliation to the air strikes and the targeting of our civilians
6:51 am
for the last 5 years saudi arabia accuses iran of backing the who these a charge denied by the rebels some believe the saudi response to the drone attacks is going to be more of what's been happening during the war in yemen this would probably help them project their what they've been doing in yemen as something legitimate especially given the international report about the violations and about the at truscott is committed in yemen i think the saudis would continue or the thing that they've been doing over the last 4 years is bomb bomb bomb would be fighters tactics have evolved in the last few years and their drone attacks have become more frequent accurate and long range as conventional air defenses struggle against multiple small drones some see aerial attacks on oil facilities as a possible game changer in the conflict a drone like this can be assembled from $10.00 to $15000.00 or explosives this provides a unique opportunity to target the military and in this case it's also more concerning
6:52 am
because you will want to target facilities that have a huge impact besides the physical damage the hoodies also seem to have time the attacks just a saudi aramco announced it is moving forward to sending a part of the state oil company the stock listing has been on again off again but attacks like these will not help investor confidence to bring in billions of dollars to diversify in the south the economy the prime minister has been historically accurate also. maybe someone. yes saudi aramco is no ordinary company it's the engine of saudi arabia's economy and a source of power for its rulers it's also the crown jewel of the saudi crown prince's ambitious plan to diversify the economy but with seemingly expanding strike capabilities from the war in yemen this would give investors a moment to pause some of the job it is there. or the saudi led coalition is
6:53 am
investigating the attacks and also says it will take the necessary measures to safeguard national assets it's already carried out at least 6 as strikes targeting his the military positions north of the rebel stronghold sada well gabriel is on though is in washington and joins us live now and quite a few areas reaction from the white house to and the state department for that matter as well. yeah the big statement was from the state department 1st the white house we haven't heard directly from president donald trump on saturday but a spokesperson for the white house and trump put out a statement confirming of course that he did speak to the crown prince of saudi arabia in solomon in saying that the u.s. supports saudi arabia's self-defense and right to self-defense and that the u.s. is monitoring the situation closely and committed to ensuring global oil markets are stable and well supplied but then late on saturday afternoon we had a statement put out on twitter by secretary of state mike pompei o and his statement blamed directly iran for the attack saying that it was an unprecedented
6:54 am
attack on the world's energy supply and there is no evidence the attack came from yemen according to the secretary of state mike pompei 0 point the finger directly at iran on this situation there he also said that point the finger also at the leaders of iran saying that tehran is behind nearly $100.00 attacks on saudi arabia while rouhani and zod if pretends to engage in diplomacy of course referring to iranian president hassan rouhani and the foreign minister there so my pompei with very strong statements really putting all of the blame 100 percent squarely on iran so why then does this leave us relations with saudi arabia and that koeman rival iran. yeah this is interesting because this involves all of the components syria now the relationship between the u.s. and saudi arabia dates back about 75 years and it's based on
6:55 am
a lot of things but it really boils down to 2 key things and that's or oil and weapons the u.s. for decades of course i bring this desire and need really for oil from saudi arabia and on the other side saudi arabia for decades now for a need and desire i guess to buy lots of weapons from the united states some of those weapons of course being used in the saudi led war in yemen and all of this boils down to mean the u.s. interests in saudi arabia in the region are really protecting their vital interests which is oil primarily and also. assisting saudi arabia and what they say is the threat coming from iran so when you see saudi arabia oil infrastructure attack like this as the u.s. says that it was done by iran you see all of the interests of the u.s. all coming together in one place or that's where you see that such a strong statement from the secretary of state there so you're going to see this bring saudi arabia and the u.s. us closer together if there even could be such
6:56 am
a thing are already very close for donald trump a strong backer of other crown prince in saudi arabia despite the u.s. congress being very wary about this in april it's a porter a member of congress in the u.s. said we do not want to supply any more u.s. weapons to saudi arabia that are used in the war in yemen that passed congress but it was vetoed by president donald trump in april so this is only going to draw these 2 countries closer together if that can even be such a thing and it's also going to lead to even more suspicion by those 2 countries u.s. and saudi arabia against iran so this is all bringing all the elements really of these relationships together and in a very potentially escalating manner gabriel thank you very much reporting to us from washington. tropical storm is threatening the northwest of the bahamas less than 2 weeks off
6:57 am
the island was devastated by hurricane dorian it's feared it could hamper the search for survivors and also international aid efforts many residents were evacuated from remote regions to the capital in the south before dorian struck alan fisher has the latest now on the relief operation. the the everyday things that will rebuild ordinary lives ripped apart their t. shirts and shorts and dresses and politics all gathered by the people in ny so for those who lost everything in the hurricane literally we've had thousands of people to come in from the island with nothing but the clothes on their back some not even with shoes so they lost everything and so this set up is just to be there to help people regain some kind of dignity and you know and then humanity and just the good feeling about themselves and to be independent again. it started as a call to a few people went vital and suddenly it became a major operation the next step is distribution was no organization no grouping it
6:58 am
was just a message sent out and the people responded well locals are playing their part the international community is doing what it can it's assessing the damage caused great and. can even begin to repair rebuild and recall behind this door is where the huge international operation is being coordinated there are so many agencies so much what going on they don't want to let the cameras in this is by far and away the biggest disaster ever to hit the bahamas the rebuilding will take months it will take years and the cost will be millions it will be billions we're trying to get information from areas that have compromised communication systems so we're really working with a coalition of partners to be able to collect that data and analyze that so that decision makers feel confident in their next steps as they plan towards mid-term
6:59 am
and long term recovering. the displaced hundreds will start to collect in nations on monday taking what they need or giving them something that says things are going to be. giving them hope alan fischer al-jazeera the bahamas. people rescued by the charity ship. ocean a viking from the mediterranean of now disembarked on the italian island of lampedusa the decision to allow them ashore is a significant change from the closed ports policy of the previous coalition government spearheaded by far right politician. new government took office on cheese day and promised a different approach to reports. the news brought tangible relief to ocean viking after nearly a week in limbo just heard. this side place all say he was. here and our love.
7:00 am
was. that sparked a spontaneous celebration among the rescued migrants in what it is we're very happy about the news is amazing we're going to arrive in a place people understand and listen to us they're happy to lend that we have to some backing and. it's a nice new prime minister just set the context has been in power just a week and conti center left coalition government supports a more humane approach than the hardline closed ports policy of the previous interior minister matteo salvini but ministers insist that does not mean it's only now has an open door policy. i believe is a big misunderstanding about the safety board given to ocean it was assigned to.
