5:06 pm
we know about what happened. well yes pretty much those bare bones the gaza health ministry confirming that these 3 individuals were killed in this incident israeli army saying that it fired on what it says was a heavily armed group of men with an attack helicopter and a tank this follows a similar incident last weekend last saturday when 4 armed men were shot and killed and then in the beginning of the month on august 31st there was an infiltration the israeli army says by one palestinian man who shot and injured 3 israeli soldiers and again was shot and killed now in this latest instance our reporting inside gaza suggests that these men were from islamic jihad one was from hamas but the suggestion coming out is that they were not acting in some kind of
5:07 pm
coordinated way that this was an individual action there is a narrative coming from largely from hamas which is in control of the gaza strip that this is about angry and desperate young men who are going to the border and trying to carry out these sorts of missions in some kind of freelance basis there's been some reporting that hamas has been trying to intervene and stop this from happening and yet we have seen a growing number of these sorts of incidents taking place as well as this incident last night we saw 3 rockets fired from the gaza strip 2 of those intercepted one of those falling inside israeli territory that was the 2nd night in succession that we've seen rocket fire coming out of gaza so it does seem that the security situation is is escalating to some extent perhaps no coincidence that we're in the run up the last month towards the israeli election we have seen such escalations in the past ahead of his regular actions are are her thoughts on life as and less

5:22 pm
build up as a move that by destabilize the whole region and is calling for u.s. vessels to leave the area america will not be held hostage to nuclear blackmail the crisis all started when president donald trump unilaterally pulled out of the iran nuclear deal last year and reinstated sanctions targeting to harassment and countries that trade with it the e.u. is still sticking to the deal offering a mechanism to bypass u.s. sanctions. but today on talk to al jazeera iran's foreign minister mohammad javad zarif warns while his country means committed to the landmark to 1015 nuclear deal he's patience is running out. i. support us i would like to start by asking you about that he says developments the naval buildup in the area as the u.s. seeks to build an international coalition to go into freedom and i think ation in
5:23 pm
the area how do you see it. this is a tiny body of water and the more foreign able vessels you have in this body of water the less secure it is for everybody. based on experience presence of the united states important neighbor fleet in the persian gulf has never produced security we have all very sad memories of u.s. ships downing an iranian airliner. in 1988 killing 290 passengers so we believe that the best you u.s. can do for protection of. maritime navigation is to just leave people alone don't interfere this is. basically a hostile act against iran and i do not believe it will have any impact other than
5:24 pm
insecurity we have the longest course on the persian gulf and on the sea obama and the strait of hormuz and we have historically maintained freedom of navigation and security in the region along with our neighbors and once again we call on our neighbors to come together for security for 20 years see the string of events that took place in the body of water over the last few months you have drones doll and you have 10 cars mysteriously attacks which is now. putting more pressure on the international committee all the americans in particular to say you know what it's about time to take action now it's about time to stop terrorizing iranian people it's about time to stop creating insecurity in the region and i think doing that will provide security i think the united states is the source of instability in this region i think u.s. allies on fortunately have been the source of instability who is bombing people in
5:25 pm
yemen who are fighting in aden to get it is iran involved or our friends involved or are these 2 allies of the united states fighting against each other once the defense minister mr had warned against. any attempt by the israelis to step into this and joins the u.s. led coalition saying that this could have this is worse disastrous can sequences is iran trying to draw a line in the sand here. we basically state opposition israel has been the source of instability and insecurity and aggression and war in this region it is very unfortunate that some countries in our region are trying to buy security of all people from israel. people who have not been able to provide security for themselves their iron dome has not even been able to protect them against.
5:26 pm
organisations that are fighting for their independence how can they provide security for the countries in the region but aren't you concerned that in this particular context the potential for a full blown minister confrontation is almost there because the americans are saying for example that the revolutionary guard in iran is in using g.p.s. interference still your oil tankers into wandering into the territorial waters of iran to seize them and you know a slight small incident there and there you go could be war but obviously the per we are. protecting our shores we are protecting our waters. it is close to us and it is 7000 miles away from the shores now who should be concerned and i believe the president of the united sates in this region is disturbing lazing and if they're concerned but
5:27 pm
instability they should move away what is very clear extremely clear is that we are not seeking war we do not want confrontation we want development for our people we want development for our region we depend on this region we depend on the persian gulf on the strait of hormuz it's our lifeline all of our oil goes through the strait of hormuz we need stability here but stability should be for everybody be cannot have stability for some instability for others we need to have stability for all countries in the region and we are prepared to protect stability for all countries in the region and for those who depend on our region the united states is least dependent for its energy on this region it is china it is japan it is korea i think those are the countries who should be involved with us with the
5:28 pm
countries in the region not with people who are from outside the region and we're prepared to work with them to ensure security and stability in this reach many other countries out of the view that it was biggest problem is that if you create a mission and it's in a pursuit to develop. ballistic missile technology and for many countries the americans in particular this is a red line well. and the americans are not in a position to draw the lines for what we do for our defense when our people were dying with iraqi chemical weapons when our we people were being killed by american awacs information reconnaissance information by the british chieftain times by soviet migs by french eggs or set missiles who was protecting us by german chemical weapons who was protecting us nobody came to our protection we were forced to develop our ballistic missiles our missile capability in order to defend ourselves that is why this issue is extremely important for the iranian people because we're
5:29 pm
not going to allow another aggressor to catch us defenseless we will defend ourselves but don't you see that sometimes your neighbors particularly saudi arabia the united arab emirates your neighbor neighbors in the region the moment they see that you're trying determined to build your own military capabilities they would say we also have to do the same thing we need to protect ourselves because this is a an area that could be explosive any time we were not building our military capabilities when they paid $75000000000.00 to saddam hussein to attack us saudi arabia based on their own statements paid $75000000000.00 for saddam's armand's it turned out that saddam after not being able to defeat us in the war targeted those weapons against the saudis and the kuwaitis themselves so if they started a military arms race. a an arms buildup in this region they should not complain
5:30 pm
we're not engaged in an arms buildup we are engaged in creating the necessary capability to defend ourselves or d.p. period to bring their military expenditure to our level 60 responses $1000000000.00 if saudi arabia is serious at least they can spend double our $32.00 bit you let me challenge them instead of $87000000000.00 that they spent last year they have half of our population best and half of our population spend twice as much as we spend on defense why are they complaining what is it that they're complaining about they're buying the most sophisticated weapons from the united states they're buying the most sophisticated weapons that are available in the global market and unfortunately unfortunately the merchants of death are setting them those weapons will go back to your relation with your neighbors in the region. it seems that we are in a perfect impasse and that the very heart of this whole crisis is the landmark 2015
5:31 pm
year clear deal the c p a a can it still hold mr foreign minister i believe so i believe it's the best deal that was possible it wasn't the best deal for every put because you cannot have a perfect date there is no perfect it was the best deal that was possible and if. president trump is given corrected weiss he would be able to. basically accept the reality that this is the best deal possible and we can move forward but the deal can go on if the other participants if the remaining participants in the decide to simply fulfill their commitments we don't expect them to do anything for us. all we want from them is to fulfill their own commitments the commitments they made in the deed and the commitments they made after the u.s.
5:32 pm
withdrawal if they believe the commitments they made in the deed was contingent upon us being a part of the deed what about the commitments that they made after they knew that us had withdrawn what we want them to do and what we expect them to do is to stay committed and we will stay committed as long as they are now the europeans of the same time are saying that we're expecting the iranians to give us more signals that they are willing to engage i'll give you an example you said that you you've issued warnings that you might. remove some of the restraints when it comes to the nuclear deal particular when it comes to enriching uranium be beyond the threshold of $3.00 or 7 percent is a still the case are you determined to go forward well you see when we negotiated the nuclear the it was not based on trust it was based on mutual mistrust and that
5:33 pm
is why in the we have provided provisions remedies if the if one side or the other the while it's the deed we are using that exact remedy in paragraph 36 of the nuclear deal so we're not while waiting the we are implementing the deal we are trying to safeguard the i can make a general statement for you we will be committed to the. as much as and as long as europe and the rest of the participants are committed president trump has repeatedly said the 2015 uclear deal was a bad deal. and if he decides it's an it's a turn chapter what would be the options left for iran a deed is a deal it is an agreement it's an agreement that a u.s. government a u.s. president elected by the people endorsed we did not have a revolution in the united states we just had an election and it cannot simply
5:34 pm
say that the agreements of previous administrations do not hold so if we take this statement seriously there are 2 years left of the 1st term of president trump less than 2 years of that and then. we will have a new president or maybe president trump reelected so it's then that you will decide how no no no no no even if president trump is there for another 6 years are we supposed to reach another deal with president trump that can only last 6 years that can only last 5 years that can only last a year and a half is that the type of international environment that president trump wants to create for people for countries who want to engage with the united states i see a rational for your own perspective the bottom line here is do you have any deadline like in 2 years from now if the there is no a time for any general in the negotiation of the deal we're going to pull out from
5:35 pm
the deal we don't need to pull out from the deal as long as others are in the deal we will be in the deal but we.
