a senior cleric threatened israel with destruction. all said all this serial this anything foolish. and hyper to the ground of. israel isn't meant sing its words either. have a message for assad or get rid of the iranians get rid of their forces they're not helping you they're only harming their presence will only cause problems and damage . the developments come only days after the us withdrawal from the nuclear deal many iranians see this as another provocation from israel's ally on the streets of iran protesters held by misreading death to america global leaders a calling on iran and israel for restraint fearing the lack of stability in the region could lead to war their gold preserve what's left of the nuclear deal.
german chancellor angela merkel underlined that intension again throwing harsh words at the u.s. administration on thoughts and lobbies i don't think it's correct to pull out of a deal that has been agreed upon that has been voted for unanimously in the u.n. security council. that violates the trust in the international order. of couldn't iran's foreign ministry signaled in a statement that it's prepared to work with europe to save the nuclear deal but it's unclear whether that would help ease the conflict with israel. ok let's talk now to correspondent who is in the lebanese capital beirut. give us an idea of what the mood is at the moment in the middle east are people preparing for an all out conflict with israel. well the region is certainly on an agile and i've not quite seen it this tense thus far last year and how do you need
a sign from riyadh and when he came back sure there were tensions that there would be war this always sort of going around the middle east that the reason is preparing for us next war but this time it's quite different even though all sides have been talking to sources in israel as well as a need on in syria and he has eleven on some people in his blood nobody really wants a ball but this is generation is pretty tense and even though we've seen sort of israel a pack a stance of the iranian assets in syria all the as they've conducted over one hundred packs that this is quite a direct hit now is there going to be more of the information war or not that's the big question as we've seen as far as the strikes and sound rhetoric from the iranian side has been measured i know you spoke about a certain cleric but as long as hominy the spiritual leader is not making that trek so how far does israel want to go in sending this message to sit in sending this message to israel that is what we need to wait and see ok until what about lebanon
there's just been an election in lebanon the iranian backed hezbollah one more than half the seats in parliament they saw major gains on first day we saw major world powers urging the evident to maintain its policy of staying out of regional conflicts is that likely to stay the case of could we see lebanon also getting involved. levin i absolutely would i mean within levanon there's always a debate where. the lebanese nationalists say look we don't want to spoil a lot of infighting in city as we don't want never going to be engaging in a conflict with israel you would like peace but this having said that is hizbullah is a very strong force on the ground and by making political gains essentially they're saying that that cause which is business is to israel isn't it didn't cause now how the willing gauge is quite a different question the fire does in the south the golan heights on the city inside of all his bluff why does these are the fighters who trained shia militias of iraq. which is sitting inside
a gulag and i'm back several of the myself said so so if there is a war than those fighters i like to do join in is what is present in city of their lives as in numbers and as well that is here in lebanon as well so whatever conflict happens whether in syria or another on his less likely to participate in his level is going to be engaged ok and. not not very good prospects that until vora in beirut many thanks of some of the other stories making news around the world your sexual state might compare said that america could help rebuild north korea's economy if the country gives up its nuclear weapons made the comment at a news conference alongside his south korean counterpart the robust verification of any denuclearize ation would be needed. turkish state media say judges have lifted the house arrest order against journalists by two months after
