US DECIDES TO INCREASE MILITARY POWER IN THE MIDDLE EAST




Serhat TUNAR -TDO- As is known, the tension between the United States and Iran has been increasing day by day. The United States has announced that it will ship the "USS Arlington" amphibious battleship and a Patriot air defense battery to the Middle East, making a move that will further boost this tension.

The US Department of Defense said in a statement on the issue that the US Central Forces (CENTCOM) commanded the sending of the USS Arlington (LPD-24) ship and a Patriot battery to the command line's mandate, in line with the additional military power demand.

The decision to increase military power in the Middle East is expected to be taken following allegations that Iran plans to attack US targets. Iranian officials say they have no plans to attack US targets.
