Iranian lawmakers shout ‘death to America’ during flag burning after Trump pulls out of nuclear deal

Trump's announcement that the Iran deal was "rotten" set off a wave of events in the Middle East.
Israel was accused of killing Iranian soldiers in Syria, lawmakers in Tehran burned an American flag and allies scrambled to save a nuclear deal amid the tumult caused when President Trump pulled out of the historic accord.
Trump announced Tuesday that the 2015 deal to lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs in its nuclear program was "rotten," though the immediate aftermath threatened to spoil prospects for peace in a Middle East already taut with a web of conflicts.
Syria accused Israel of being behind the air strike on an area near Damascus that monitoring groups said had killed nine people, including Iranian fighters.
Israel is previously believed to have hit targets inside Syria, including in the run up to a U.S., French and British strike last month, but does not comment on its use of force there.
The strike came hours after Trump nixed the Iran deal, and Israel said it had detected "irregular activity" from Iranian forces in Syria and issued an alert to residents in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Trump's move against the international community's accord on Iran came against the advice of the U.S.'s closest allies in Europe, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was a longtime opponent of the deal.
Defenders of the agreement warned that, in addition to diminishing the U.S.'s already shrinking image on the world stage, killing the Iran deal could trigger an arms race and potentially another war in the Middle East.
It is unclear what the U.S. will actually achieve by pulling out of the deal, with reformist-leaning Iranian President Hassan Rouhani telling a television station that his officials could begin enriching uranium again.
Some within Iran urged the country to stay in the accord, with hopes that European countries and the EU can maintain it without the U.S., though hard-liners were more ready for a return to conflict.

"Death to America" was the message coming from some lawmakers in the Iranian parliament in a spontaneous demonstration on Wednesday.
They burned a paper American flag, as well as a piece of paper representing the nuclear deal signed in 2015.
Rouhani did not commit to enriching uranium again, and said that he would send his Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who helped negotiate the deal, to other parties involved: China, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom.
Iran's religious leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, said Wednesday that the deal would be over without solid guarantees from the non-U.S. players.

Beyond the accord itself, the reimposition of U.S. sanctions will affect major European companies who started doing business with Iran after the measures were lifted.
Those countries could soon be punished under American law if they keep doing so, though Iranian officials hope that the EU passes laws to protect the ventures.
On Wednesday the EU's ambassador to China, Hans Dietmar Schweisgut, said  believes "this is an agreement which belongs to the international community" and that it would not fall apart after the U.S. left.
