B-52 takes off from US base in Qatar to deter an alleged Iran’s ‘attack on US interests’

B-52 bombers have commenced air operations from the US base in Qatar, as Washington continues to amass its forces in the Persian Gulf.

The White House says it is to deter an alleged Iranian ‘attack on US interests’.

US Central Command (CENTCOM) made no attempt to keep Sunday’s operations secret, broadcasting photos of the B-52H Stratofortress bombers as they took off from Al Udeid Air Base near Doha, Qatar.
