The U.S. Central Command flew fighter jets from the Persian Gulf to Iran as part of a joint U.S.-Saudi alert after recent intelligence reports warned of imminent strikes by Iranian ballistic missiles and drones on targets in Saudi Arabia.
The Washington Post did not say exactly when the US deployed the fighters. The newspaper asserts that this is an example of the strength and importance of the partnership between the United States and Saudi Arabia.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Khanani Safi said the West was deliberately escalating the situation against Iran, and Tehran was reportedly preparing to attack Saudi Arabia.
