U.S. repositions warships in expectation of Iranian attack - report --The U.S. is strongly concerned that an Iranian strike on Israel would lead to a regional war, which would, in turn, lead to a worsening of the overall situation in the Middle East. | 13 April 2024 | The U.S. repositioned several warships in the Middle East in expectation of an Iranian attack, according to a Friday Wall Street (WSJ) Journal report. U.S. CENTCOM Commander General Michael Erik Kurilla was in Israel on Friday to coordinate U.S. defense moves with the Israeli general staff. Iran has threatened Israel with retaliation after Israel struck an Iranian embassy complex that was being used by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). On Friday, the WSJ reported that the U.S. repositioned two destroyers, one from inside the Middle East and another from outside the region. According to an unnamed official cited in the report, one of them is reportedly armed with an Aegis missile defense system.
