B-52 bomber flies over Middle East


THE US military said it has again flown a B-52 bomber over the Middle East “to deter potential aggression” amid tensions with Iran, the first such flight under President Joe Biden. The B-52 flew nonstop from Louisiana’s Barksdale Air Force Base into the region. The plane went over both the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia, according to flighttrac­king data. The US military’s Central Command later published images of the bomber flying alongside Royal Saudi Air Force F-15s.
