CNN: Moving the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz to the Gulf region


The American “CNN” network, quoting a Pentagon official, said on Friday evening that the aircraft carrier “USS Nimitz” had moved to the Gulf region with other warships.


The network reported that the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz would be transferred to the Persian Gulf region and other warships to provide combat support and air cover with the withdrawal of US forces from Iraq and Afghanistan by January 15.

The official indicated that this was done under orders from President Donald Trump.

The official emphasized that the step was taken before news of the assassination of a prominent Iranian nuclear scientist.

“CNN” stated that the American forces’ movements are a message of increasing deterrence to Iran, regardless of the officer’s observation.
