In Israeli airspace, a B-52H “Stratofortress” of the American Air Force was detected. The U.S. aircraft was heading for its U.S. base after earlier flying over the Persian Gulf, sending a clear message to Iran.

This was the seventh missionto the US Central Command (CENTCOM) area of responsibility in the past four months and the second time this bomber has been developed in the region since the new US presidency took over on 20 January.

According to the Jerusalem Post, Defense Minister Benny Gantz said last week that Israel is renewing plans to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. “We have the attack plans in our hands, but we will continue to improve them constantly” said Gantz.

“Iran’s nuclear ambition must stop. If the world stops them early, it’s too good. But if not, we should stand independently and defend ourselves,” said Gantz.

Following the bomber’s recent mission, US Central Command said the aircraft was sent to the Gulf to highlight America’s commitment to regional security and its ability to rapidly deploy in the region as needed.

“The United States continues to deploy ready-made forces in the area of responsibility of U.S. Central Command to deter any potential adversary and to make it clear that we are ready and able to respond to any attack directed at the Americans or our interests,” said Central Command Commander General Frank McKenzie.

“We do not seek conflict, but no one should underestimate our ability to defend our forces or act decisively in response to any attack,” he added.
