In The Midst Of Tensions With Iran, US B-52 Bombers Fly Over The Middle East

As tensions between Washington and Tehran remain high, the US military announced on Monday that it had flown two nuclear-capable B-52 long-distance bombers over the Middle East in a show of force.

In training missions on Sunday, the bombers flew over the eastern Mediterranean, the Arabian Peninsula, and the Red Sea with Kuwaiti and Saudi warplanes before taking off from the Royal Air Force base in Fairford, England.

“Threats to the U.S. and our partners will not go unanswered.,” Lt. Gen. Alexus Grynkewich, the top U.S. Air Force officer in the Middle East said in a statement. “ “Missions like this … showcase our ability to combine forces to deter and, if necessary, defeat our adversaries.”
