    Shafaq News/ The American newspaper "The Wall Street Journal" stated that the US military placed bunker-busting bombs, each weighing 250 pounds (114 kg), within the ammunition of attack aircraft that it had recently sent to the Middle East, in a move as a message to deter Iran, including its presence in Iraq.  



    The Wall Street Journal quoted US officials as saying in a report translated by Shafaq News Agency; This step is the first of its kind, and placing more powerful weapons in a squadron of A-10 Warthogs aims to give pilots a greater chance of success in destroying ammunition caches and other fortified targets in Iraq and Syria after US forces have been repeatedly targeted by militants. supported by Iran.
    This is the first time the US military has placed these precision-guided weapons on board Warthogs aircraft, which have been recently refurbished so that each can carry up to 16 bunker buster bombs, also known as GBU-39/B bombs. ". 
    The report quoted the head of the Central Command of the US Air Force, General Alexus Grynkewich, who oversees military operations in the skies of Syria and 20 other countries in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, as saying that these planes are "very effective in some of the things that we need to do." 
    The American report indicated that these powerful bombs arrived in the Middle East at a time of escalating tensions with Iran, noting that last Thursday, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards detained an oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman while it was transporting oil from Kuwait to the United States, which Iran says is a flagged ship. The Marshall Islands collided with an Iranian ship in the Gulf, causing casualties, then tried to flee, while the US Navy says Iran violated international law by seizing the ship. 
    The report continued that the Pentagon sent the updated squadron of aircraft, which usually includes 12 aircraft. 
    to the Middle East last month after Iran-backed forces carried out a series of attacks on US bases on Syrian soil, including a drone strike that killed an American contractor, while US President Joe Biden responded by ordering airstrikes on the militants. Supported by Iran in Syria.
    According to the report, General Greenwich, by announcing the dispatch of the new squadron, will have multiplied by 50% the number of attack aircraft in the region.
    The report saw that the transfer of the squadron of aircraft to the Middle East is part of a broader effort aimed at strengthening the US military presence in light of the growing concerns about attacks by Iran and its allies throughout the region. In addition, the US military announced the arrival of a submarine loaded with guided missiles last month in the Middle East, in a show of force.
    At that time, the report quoted US officials as saying that they had intelligence indicating that Iran was preparing to launch a drone attack on a commercial ship in the region. 
    According to the report, US officials said that concerns about this threat receded after the arrival of the USS Florida aircraft carrier, which can carry 150 Tomahawk missiles, to the Red Sea. 
    But after Washington announced the dispatch of the aircraft carrier, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani said; Washington is trying to "cover up the decline of its power in the world, and that the American regime is moving in a direction contrary to the will of the countries of the region." 
    The report concluded by referring to the upgrades carried out on the "Worthogs" squadron to be able to carry precision-guided bombs, and that the development process will give these aircraft greater firepower than the "F-15" fighters. The report pointed out that the move reflects the US military's attempt to prove the continuity of the aging "Worthogs" fleet, which Pentagon officials have been trying to retire for more than a decade. 
    The report indicated that these aircraft fly relatively slowly, and will be suitable for securing close air support for American soldiers on the ground in places such as Syria, where they do not have 
    Militants are planes to challenge the American pilots in the sky. He added that the "Worthogs" aircraft are not fit to operate in the airspace of East Asia, as they will be vulnerable to being hit by the Chinese air defenses.
