The US left an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf amid Iranian threats




The Pentagon announced the threats of Iranian leaders to the US President and changed its mind to withdraw the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier from the Persian Gulf.





The US authorities have decided not to withdraw the aircraft carrier, USS Nimitz, from the Persian Gulf. This was reported on the Pentagon website.

According to Acting United States Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, this is due to “recent threats from Iranian leaders to President Donald Trump and other officials.”

According to him, the ship will remain at a post in the zone of the US Central Command.

“No one should question the US decisiveness,” Miller added, without specifying which Iranian threats were in question.

The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz has been patrolling the waters of the Persian Gulf since the end of November 2020, but on December 31, the acting head of the US Department of Defense ordered to send him home after almost 10 months of sailing.

The statement by the US Department of Defense was released on the anniversary of the death of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, who headed the elite al-Quds unit of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). He was killed in a US airstrike on Baghdad airport, directed by the US President.

The IRGC responded by launching missile strikes at the Ain al-Assad airbase and a military facility in Iraq where US troops are stationed. The deterioration of relations between Washington and Tehran has led to an aggravation of the situation in the region.

On the eve, in the center of Baghdad, thousands of people took part in the “march of a million” in memory of Soleimani.
