Stratfor CSO Fred Burton analyzes. Story: The UN's nuclear watchdog said Monday it was "worried about increasing tensions" over Iran's nuclear drive, after Tehran said it was no longer respecting some limits from a 2015 deal with world powers, and threatened further steps. "I... hope that ways can be found to reduce current tensions through dialogue," IAEA director general Yukiya Amano said in a speech. The 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six major powers -- Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States -- saw Iran scale down its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. But last year the United State unilaterally withdrew from the deal and reimposed sanction on Iran. On May 8 Iran announced it no longer considered itself bound to keep to the limits of stocks of heavy water and enriched uranium. "As I have constantly emphasized, the nuclear-related commitments entered into by Iran under the JCPOA represent a significant gain for nuclear verification," Amano said in his speech. "It is essential that Iran fully implements its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA," he added. But Iran has voiced frustration with European powers, calling on them to uphold commitments made under the deal and help Iran circumvent US sanctions, while threatening to scale back its nuclear commitments if its interests are not met.

Lebanon in the stranglehold of Hezbollah | DW Documentary

The huge explosion in the port of Beirut this month killed and injured many. It also plunged Lebanon into an even deeper political crisis. Hezbollah, meanwhile, continues to wield extensive power, reaching into almost every area of life in Lebanon. The Lebanese government is proving unable to cope with the disaster. The country has a religious political power sharing system that has allowed sectarian networks to thrive. The Iranian-funded Shia organization Hezbollah in particular has Lebanon in a stranglehold. Hezbollah leaders are known to exercise at least a degree of control over the port, despite claims to the contrary. It’s here that some 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate exploded. On al-Quds Day — the last Friday of Ramadan — Hezbollah showcases its military might with a huge annual parade. Thousands of supporters come together for the ensuing rally in a Beirut suburb. Al-Quds Day was initiated by Iran’s former Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979 as a day for all Muslims to stand against Israel. It’s conceived as a day of anger and revenge. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah usually addresses the crowds via video message — he’s unable to appear in person for fear of being attacked by Israel. So he reaches out to his supporters from a huge video screen, issuing fierce denunciations of Israel. Nasrallah and his powerful Iranian-armed militia threaten not only Israel, but also the United States. Since the war in Syria was decided, with Hezbollah militants helping to keep the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in power, the group’s influence in the region has grown. Hezbollah has skillfully increased its political and military power in recent years, becoming a state within a state. But there is growing resistance. Civil society forces are seeking to overcome the age-old religious conflicts and use democratic means to strike a new course. ------------------------------------------------------------------- DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.
