US Deploys B-52 Bombers to Persian Gulf, Warning Iran Against Possible Attacks

The United States flew two B-52 bombers over the Persian Gulf on Wednesday as a forewarning to Iran against any potential attacks against American or allied targets in the Middle East.

Additionally, the senior military official said there could be a “potential for other more complex attacks” against Americans in Iraq. “I think it is likely that the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad would be attacked again in some manner.”

He added, “We’re seeing planning for, particularly in Iraq for complex attacks that require Iranian assistance in order to be pulled off. It’s unclear to us, whether it’s contingency planning, or whether it’s a plan that is advancing because approval has been given and they’re just trying to get all the pieces in place and execute.”

Embassy Strikes

Reports that the Iraqi security forces have arrested the head of the missiles unit responsible to the attack on the green zone and US embassy in Baghdad earlier this week. Will America strike soon? The answer is in the mind of the resident of Mar-a-Lago, Florida!

IRGC Leader Issues New Threat To ‘Sworn Enemies’ Following Fakhrizadeh’s Death

The leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) warned that the killing of Iran’s lead nuclear scientist nearly two weeks ago is only causing the regime to further plot against its ‘sworn enemies.’

Hossein Salami, the current leader of the IRGC, spoke recently concerning the killing of Iran’s head nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, and what Iran’s sworn enemies can expect in response. Fakhrizadeh was killed nearly two weeks ago east of Tehran at the hands of Israel’s Mossad. However, in his recent address, Salami did not specifically name the Jewish State.

In a recent speech, Salami stated, “Iran’s sworn enemies should know that the Shahids are our burning flames, we will continue on the path they have laid out before us, we will not stop.” 

A Shahid is an Islamic martyr.

He continued his statement by claiming that Iran knows that its enemies are “waiting in fear,” knowing that the Islamic Republic will strike at the proper time. He added that Iran’s enemies would be wise to acknowledge that the regime grows whenever a martyr takes place.

As they have for a significant amount of time, Israel warned of its readiness to confront Iranian aggression. Israel has been very active in the prevention of Iranian entrenchment inside of Syria, especially in the last 12 months.
