these explosion with the radical groups, islamic radical groups in gaza which support the ideology of what is called the islamic state especially after what the complicated relation between these groups and hamas security and hamas movement in gaza. but until now, there is no clear official statement by these groups or by the interior ministry these analysis and this explosion one sign especially the cause of the damage is more stronger than previous explosions if we compare it before the previous explosion under and these explosions the cause of the explosion is bigger, started by hamas activists and islamic
jihadists at the same time, used to target hamas fighters and hamas security members. third this will be a challenge for hamas security in gaza and even for the groups and the palestinian factors how to be with these developments and what the coming days will be in the situation in gaza. >> tamar, thank you tamaral michel. explaining the bomb blasts in gaza. we'll have more on that later. fears over iranian nuclear deal are far from over. secretary of defense ash carter is going to israel on wednesday saudi arabia and jordan also on his list. on friday the supreme leader made his first comment about the
agreement, he said it will not change tehran's relationship with united states or the middle east. meanwhile the business of doing business with iran is already starting. germany is sending a trade delegation to tehran on sunday and so do other countries. we'll have more little later but first the diplomacy and why ash carter's message of reassurance may be hard to sell. here is tom ackerman. >> mohammed ben salman, visit just a few days before the nuclear deal with iran, another effort to reassure the saudis that their seven decade long relationship with the u.s. remains strong. in the past four years the saudis have reached more than
$90 billion in weapons deals with the u.s. sales that include war planes, armored vehicles missiles and bombs. some of that hardware has been deployed by the saudis, along with its gulf cooperation councilmembers and the u.s. is providing intelligence and logistics, against the houthi rebels whom they regard as iran's proxies. >> the objective there is to restore a political process there in which a legitimate government can be established. >> but that cooperation hasn't quieted saudi anxiety over iran's what they call mischief around the region. military life line to syria's bashar al-assad. >> this comes back to iranian
saudi strategic rivalry and the idea that the u.s. is not pushing back hard enough in the iranian influence in the gulf and the le vanity levant and elsewhere. >> carter will follow up his boss's message to israeli prime minister netanyahu last week. >> i'm prepared to go further in terms of u.s. administration to provide them security from the united states. >> assurances whose specifics remain unspoken. but tom ackerman, al jazeera washington. >> a professor of world studies at the university of tehran and he says the opening up of markets in iran is a concern to the world he thinks.
>> iran's economic benefits, some of the sanctions that will be lifted or suspended they don't mind seeing the program limited but they mind being iran does better economically and i think that's what they're worried about. i think it's a correct statement saying then that iran is able to access economic markets or is able to access its own money in international banks iran's economy would be in a better shame nap part of the statement is i think accurate. >> kamal, what opportunities would exist in iran as western sanctions are lifted. >> there is a flip side to years of economic eye laition and that happens when you finally emerges from it. with its population of 80 million people waiting for foreign input businesses are understandably ready to engage
with iran. steps taken in the last year as these nuclear talks are happening, worth $100 billion. think of aviation. tehran needs more than 400 aircraft to replace its aging fleet. germany expects to sell more chemicals to iran. and the wall street journal is reporting that apple is looking for a distribution partner in iran the tech market is estimated to grow to $16 billion annually from use ask just $six billion now. likely to spend 176 billion this year. there's an annual disposable ingenious at stack of $284
billion. with a look at those numbers the cue to iran answer door may be a long one. >> rally of white supremacists over the confederate flag. from colombia south carolina, allen fisher reports. >> a protester protest from a white prem sis. supremacist. they marched on the steps of south carolina state capital building, they objected to the removal of the confederate flag from the state house grounds and the flag waved by the man who shot nine people dead in a church in this state just short of a month ago.

>> what i'm seeing now is pathetic actually pathetic pfn. >> the kkk's numbers have dropped significantly in recent years though it claims a surge in interest about the flag and how most people have stopped take it or delivering is. those the cut k k k should be the like the flag. >> still to come here on al jazeera, north koreans go to the polls yet most of the ballot papers have only one name. and we're in brundz where people are hoping that tuesday's election will bring pros patient and peace.

into wholly decorated polling booths and with one name on they either approve or disprove of the name on the paper. that e-disapproval doesn't often happen. the turnout 97.anyone after four hours of voting, a couple ever hours of voting, the number was up to 91%. it seems people are taking the instructions is very much to the letter. this being a de facto census, the leadership can take offense to where they are where they want to be. obviously, people do travel across what is to some extent a
poorest border, so it can be used for that purpose as well. >> hear, thank you heading to the polls for loam elections. judge 90, in egypt military has shot and killed two soldiers near the town of sheik zuwait. rockets paroled guns by calling efcallingists government forces. there's been forcing between houthi backed rebels and government forces. earlier they regained control of the southern part city of aden. 90 self be ministers loyal to
