U.S. Official Drops Bombshell: Trump Is Planning ‘Massive Aerial Bombardment’ On Iran

The United States’ plans to carry out a tactical assault on Iran, Diplomatic government officials revealed, according to a report published by The Jerusalem Post.

Citing Diplomatic sources at the UN headquarters in New York, the report states that, since Friday, the White House has been holding incessant discussions involving senior military commanders, Pentagon representatives and advisers to President Donald Trump.

The military action under consideration would be an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program, the officials further claimed.

“The bombing will be massive but will be limited to a specific target,” said one diplomat who spoke in condition of anonymity.

The decision to carry out military action against Iran was discussed in the White House before the latest report that Iran might increase the level of uranium enrichment.

The officials also noted that the United States plans to reinforce its military presence in the Middle East, and in the coming days will also send additional soldiers to the area, according to the report.
The sources added that President Trump granted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is pushing for action, full authority to go ahead with the plan.

The military action is in response to the tanker attack in the Persian Gulf last week.

Pompeo has repeatedly made statements against Iran in recent days. He claimed that there is no doubt that the explosions in tankers in the Gulf were carried out by Iran.

Iran on Monday announced that it intends to deviate from the nuclear agreement signed in 2015 and to enrich uranium at a higher level than the maximum it has committed to within the framework of the nuclear deal.

In addition to the confrontation over Iran’s nuclear program, the United States accuses Tehran of trying to extend its arm across the Middle East and destabilize the region from Yemen to Syria.

Among other things, the White House blamed Iran for the attack on several oil tankers in recent weeks in the Persian Gulf and even published a video showing Iranian fighters apparently removing a mine that did not explode from a ship that was attacked.

For its part, Iran has accused the US of purposely destabilizing the Middle East.

The White House did not immediately respond to a Political Dig request from a comment on the report.
