B-52 bomber flies over ME


The US military said on Wednesday that it again flew a B-52 bomber over the Middle East “to deter potential aggression” amid tensions with Iran. The B-52 flew nonstop from Louisiana’s Barksdale Air Force Base into the region earlier in the day. The plane went over both the Arabian Gulf, according to flight-tracking data. While not mentioning Iran in its statement, Central Command said the flight was meant to “showcase the US commitment to regional security.” The flights, the third-such operation this year, had become common in the last months of former President Donald Trump’s administration.— AP
