UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — An Iranian military source has announced that the US aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln, has not entered the Persian Gulf and has stopped in the Arabian Sea.

According to the public relations of the staff of the Iranian armed forces, this military source said that the movements of US military forces are indeed intended to ensure the safety of their own units and that the speculations put forward by the media or Political circles were only “psychological operations” to exert pressure on Iranian or even regional public opinion.

“Contrary to speculation in recent days, the military movements of US forces in the region were only defensive to protect military units from possible threats,” the source said.

“The USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier stopped in the Arabian Sea and several other US military ships left the Persian Gulf. It is therefore incorrect to say that the United States has shipped its navy into the Persian Gulf, “said the Iranian military source.

The source added that the United States and its regional allies were unable to carry out any military operation against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“That is why they said several times that they did not intend to start the war against Iran,” she said before adding: “The Islamic Republic of Iran is a safe country and it will never start a military conflict. The Iranian armed forces are determined to fight against the plots of the hostile powers. The United States and its allies are well aware of this.”
