israel says it hit nearly all of iran's military infrastructure in syria responds to what he says were iranian rocket attacks on israeli positions in the israeli occupied golan heights if true it would be the first time iranian forces have fired rockets at israeli held territory. correspondent is that monitoring developments from neighboring beirut welcome and show israel says it was responding to an iranian attack on golan heights why would iran target that area. but the reason iran would do target cool on the ice is because going on this occupied territory it was occupied by israel in the sixty nine hundred sixty seven war israel has since an extent even though the international community does not recognize so essentially iran is saying that we're not targeting israel we're targeting occupied territory. and that sort of is a measured response i'd say which means that iran there's no one just sent

a wider conflict the question is that israel has drawn a red nine that they don't want to iranians they don't want to run in assets on the ground in syria they don't want iran to expensive and iran has not done anything or said anything to suggest that they will back off so eventually you really are looking at a serious confrontation it may happen now it may happen later. in beirut thank you so much for joining the dover. the governments of russia and germany have criticised the escalating tensions in the middle east and underlined their intention to preserve the iran nuclear deal despite america's withdrawal welcoming is german counterpart on his first visit to moscow russian foreign minister sergey lavrov stressed that the remaining signatures to the deal should discuss how best to keep it alive heiko mass expressed of germany's hope that russia would use its close ties to iran to convince them to stick with the deal he then went on to outline some of the issues still damaging relations between
