3:12 am
a places in the parliament obama to lead the country whereas at the same time they don't have any idea about what's going on so we need not maybe another 18 to think of the problems or to museum to change things maybe we need also a national dialogue of another one like that that we have and with the 13 so that we whether you have civil society experts in the economy and you have the same time politicians and we need that these elite created this political elite really to think of that that that of the denture that is looming over the country and that basic status is going to fall out and when it falls i mean every with his daughter when their ship sinks have it what is not going to find its way out of there of the sea so they need to be aware of the bench. still ahead on al-jazeera why more palestinians are turning to traditional justice systems to protect themselves and

3:17 am
and 2015 so tom but our thoughts as the director of the center for conflict and humanitarian studies at the institute he says a recent attack on saudi arabia may complicate the terrorists as a nation review. he doesn't mention a version he was framed at the house he's being a foreign terrorist organization based on their attacks on saudi arabia and if the news is correct that we had earlier today that therefore and you had attack it would make it much more difficult for the by the net this issue to review this so this ignition however does ignition and so on is unlikely to help and this is what we've learned from many of the civil conflicts the designation will not help the enemies inside yemen as much as the saudis and the relationship with the enemy we. already the last couple of days since it's come into force has caused a major computer in among international agencies private companies who are
3:18 am
supplying food to yemen shipping companies who are trying to carry that put into yemen a lot of them reluctant to engage in yemen not because they don't want to or that no need for their help but the does ignition and it's blankets form at the moment without much detail and makes it. very difficult for them to engage and a high risk area for them to to engage so lazy is to withdraw and ultimately i think the public would pay the price and as you know yemen is already one of the worst human who attend that disasters and is likely to get worse. without further details on how this does initially going to work i think the situation worse. u.s. senate majority leader chuck schumer wants the justice department to investigate allegations that donald trump had plans to replace the acting attorney general with some one more element of will the new york times says the event presidents
