Two American B-52 'Stratofortress' bombers fly over Persian Gulf to warn Iran in anticipation of 'complex attacks' in retaliation for killing of General Solemani one year ago

The United States flew strategic bombers over the Persian Gulf on Wednesday for the second time this month, in a show of force meant to deter Iran from attacking American or allied targets in the Middle East.

It came after a senior U.S. military official warned that Iran is planning 'complex' revenge scenarios to avenge the killing of General Qasem Solemani, who died last January 3.

The senior officer confirmed Wednesday's flight by two Air Force B-52 'Stratofortress' bombers was in response to signals that Iran may be planning attacks against U.S. allied targets in neighboring Iraq or elsewhere in the region in the coming days, even as President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office.
