Iran's foreign minister will embark on a diplomatic tour to try to salvage the nuclear deal amid high tensions following the United States withdrawal and global fears over reports of unprecedented clashes with Israel in Syria.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 27 pro-Syrian fighters were killed on Thursday when Israeli jets hit targets in Syria.

We will remind, on the night of 10 may, the IDF attacked dozens of military targets belonging to the Iranian forces of al-Quds in Syria, in response to the shelling of their positions in the Golan heights.

The incursion took place during a weekly mass protest in which thousands of Palestinians gathered along the Israel-Gaza frontier. Israel says it has a right to defend its border and has accused Hamas of using the protests as a cover for attacking the border.

The phone calls came a few days after US President Donald Trump defied protests and last-minute lobbying by his European partners and unilaterally chose to withdraw from the historic nuclear accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and impose new sanctions on Tehran. Israel however, which has always been concerned about Iranian influence in the Middle East welcomed Trump's decision.

Trump had long threatened to withdraw from the accord, saying it was too easy on Iran. However, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says Tehran will only accept to remain in the nuclear deal if the E3 gives Tehran a guarantee that it will be able to reap all the benefits of JCPOA.
