how you force it in west jerusalem for us we'll get reaction from him in just a moment but 1st let's cross over to. the iranian capital tehran and said iran clearly very clearly has laying the blame for the attack on israel what's it's been saying. this saying that this is nuclear terrorism that israel has openly been against iran's nuclear program and negotiations to have those sanctions lifted so they are the prime suspect but it has been a bizarre 24 hours or so yesterday we were told about an electrical incident to iran was downplaying it making it seem like it was some sort of accident but then the head of the atomic agency here the organization called it an act of terrorism nuclear terrorism and today iran is pointing the finger at israel we've also have iranian media quoting sources within the intelligence ministry saying that an individual has been identified and they're working on apprehending them again very
bizarre because if 'd you have identified an individual surely you would go out and detain them rather than tell the media about it and this is reminiscent of what the iranians do they even downplay the incidents or they give out misinformation last year iran's need nuclear scientist. there was assassinated just outside of tehran and again we had seen the reports that individuals had been identified and would be apprehended and yet nothing. at the same plant in the towns there was an act of sabotage we were told that there was an investigation taking place and the findings would be released again we haven't heard anything and it seems like israel has managed to infiltrate iran and can carry out attacks at will with iran unable to stop them and with very little response but we did have the foreign ministry spokesperson speaking and this is what he had to say. it felt. good that what happened in tons as israel's official i've said it several times and
what we're hearing from different sources it confirms that israel was behind this incident i am glad that there was no human damage or environmental contamination could have caused the disaster israel wanted to take revenge on the iranian nation's patience and was dim but they must know that iran's response is reserved at the right time and the right location. well all of this is that coming at a very critical time with talks on how secure about returning to the 2015 nuclear deal it will do to stop or least ask again in vienna later this week how might this impact. well there's 2 aspects to that one is if iran is using the nuclear enrichment capabilities as leverage to get the europeans and united states to lift those sanctions now we don't know the extent of the damage but they are reports that is significant and could say iran back so they may lose their leverage in those negotiations and that could affect how the how those talks
go but also internally there are many people here in the political circles expression from the conservatives who have never been for the nuclear deal in the 1st place and they think that these nuclear negotiations a pointless and that iran should work are making itself strong and work on the assumption that sanctions will not be lifted now internally that means is that the reformists led by president hassan rouhani this criticism of his administration and how have these talks are fruitless that no matter what iran does that they will be attacked that they will have enemies within the region and this is a very difficult time for the rouhani administration so yes those talks are set to take place and this adds an extra layer of conflict complexity and also makes that more difficult than it already is as the lines there from. let's go over now to harry and west jerusalem and how i've been hearing some very strong words from iran
any response so far from israel. no as we've come to expect at these sorts of times the israeli comment is none neither confirming nor denying this officially but there is a lot of reporting in the israeli media and in the foreign media based seemingly on pretty extensive leaking and briefing behind the scenes from israeli and other intelligence sources and not for the 1st time the new york times is leading the way on some of this through it's extremely well connected israeli security reporter ronen bergman an article new york times saying that this was an explosion at the isolated protected power supply of the natanz enrichment facility totally destroying that power supply and setting the according to the sources of they've been speaking to setting the program back by at least 9 months there's also
a report on the israeli public broadcaster can which talked about the fact the was reportedly an israeli led or an israeli involved attack on iran and other pretty broad reporting from the israeli media citing such sources so it is pretty clear that there has been a good deal of briefing very little being done to clamp down on this in terms of trying to disguise any such involvement and so that's led to some debate as to whether that is correct to do that whether the timing is sensible given the potential escalatory nature of this but also as on the other side as i said was talking about the potential removal of significant leverage from iran in those negotiations in vienna and also potentially inhibiting any iranian
retaliation because of the fact that iran is currently negotiating with these other countries in vienna to try to restore the j.c. p.o. of the iran nuclear deal and of course the u.s. section of defense lloyd austin is still in town do they expect him to talk about this today. well he's just been asked about it he has a and other fairly full shuttle of engagements the 1st of which on monday was a visit to an israeli air base with the israeli defense minister benny gantz he was asked for comment gave none i think that is probably going to be his line throughout the rest of day he'll be visiting the holocaust memorial and then he'll be having talks with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu what could be more interesting from that is to see any difference in approach between gantz and netanyahu on sunday against was talking about working closely with the americans to try to make sure that any new deal protects israeli security in israeli interests
netanyahu has been much less open to any such i idea he is very much against the deal per se has been talking about how israel would not be bound by a deal that would merely pave the way to a nuclear weapon for iran so i think a lot of eyes and ears will be on the words coming from benjamin netanyahu when he meets austin early this afternoon absolutely and we will keep checking back in with the throughout the day for that how for the moment there thanks very much. kovac 19 infections are surging to dangerous new highs in many countries but in some restrictions are easing as cases decline india has soared past brazil to become the 2nd most affected country in terms of total number of cases on monday it recorded a staggering 169000 new cases and a new wave in germany has pushed infections past 3000000 with health officials
