The US is planning to carry out a tactical assault on Iran, Israeli newspaper Maariv reported citing diplomatic sources at the UN headquarters in New York.
The report claimed that the attack will be justified by Iran’s supposed involvement in the attack on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman on June 13.
“The bombing will be massive but will be limited to a specific target,” Maariv quoted an anonymous Western diplomat.
The supposed military action under consideration is an aerial bombardment of an Iranian facility linked to its nuclear program, according to the report.
The report also noted that the US is going to continue reinforcing its military presence in the Middle East.
