US warns commercial flights near Persian Gulf could be 'misidentified,' amid tensions with Iran

US warns commercial flights near Persian Gulf could be 'misidentified,' amid tensions with Iran | 18 May 2019 | Commercial airliners flying over the wider Persian Gulf could be "misidentified" and targeted amid the increasing escalation between the U.S. and Iran, American diplomats said in a warning Saturday. The warning, relayed by U.S. diplomatic posts from the Federal Aviation Administration, stressed that the current tensions, with Iran-backed militias reportedly moving missiles closer to American bases in Iraq, are posing a risk to global air travel. All commercial aircraft flying over the waters of the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman need to be aware of the ongoing escalation, the warning reads, adding that the threat presents "an increasing inadvertent risk to U.S. civil aviation operations due to the potential for miscalculation or misidentification," the warning said.
