IRAN ACCUSES AMERICA OF FALSE FLAG
IRAN has accused the US of lying about the “torpedo attack” on an American-linked oil tanker as tensions reach breaking point.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for the “blatant” attacks on two tankers which burst into flames in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday.
But Iran has hit back at the “unfounded and reckless” claims and accused the US of “warmongering” as part of a “disinformation campaign”.
“The US and its regional allies must stop warmongering and put an end to mischievous plots and false flag operations in the region,” Iran’s mission to the United Nations said.
“Warning, once again, about all of the US coercion, intimidation and malign behaviour, Iran expresses concern over suspicious incidents for the oil tankers that occurred today.”
It came after Pompeo pointed the finger at Iran and the Pentagon released images and footage as “proof” of Iranian involvement.
