Edmund Ghareeb discusses escalating Middle East tensions

A massive security operation is underway in Egypt’s Sinai. Authorities say 16 militants have been killed and dozens detained. This comes as Israel is warning Iran over its intervention in Syria, after an Israeli warplane was shot down by striking targets in Syria. Turkey is also carrying out an offensive in Syria's Afrin region, and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is kicking off a regional tour in Egypt.

Edmund Ghareeb, a scholar and specialist in Middle East affairs, discusses the latest in Middle East tensions with CGTN’s Wang Guan.
