Trump calls off retaliatory strike on Iran at last minute

According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, US President Donald Trump Approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for the downing of a U.S. surveillance drone, but called off the attack at the last minute.

The New York Times reportedly quoted a senior administration official as saying U.S. warplanes took to the air and ships were put in position for a retaliatory attack only for an order to come to stand down, without any weapons being fired.

Reuters reports that the aborted attack came amid weeks of rising tension that included a spate of attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf.

Iran has reportedly denied involvement in the tanker attacks, however global concern regarding a new conflict in the Middle East has disrupted oil exports and triggered a jump in crude prices.
