Need to Make Iran or Russia Worry?

Over the past weekend, a pair of United States Air Force B-52 Stratofortress bombers took part in a patrol mission over the Middle East. It was the seventh mission into CENTCOM’s area of operation in the last four months and was the fourth-such bomber deployment to the region this year. Additionally, it was the second to be conducted since President Joe Biden took office in January.

From its official Twitter account, the United States Central Command (@CENTCOM) shared images of the bombers taking off from Minot Air Base in North Dakota. In a statement, USCENTCOM said the mission was “to deter aggression and reassure partners and allies of the U.S. military’s commitment to security in the region.”

USCENTCOM also confirmed that multiple partner nations and U.S. Air Force fighter aircraft accompanied the U.S. bombers at different points during the flight, including those of Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
