Iran renews threats against US as tensions escalate

Iran has renewed its threats against the United States on Saturday, saying that it will not permit its borders to be violated.

“Iran will firmly confront any aggression or threat by America,” said Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi, according to the semi-official Tasnim news agency.

The statement came after President Trump launched, then halted, a military strike against Iran on Thursday.

He clarified on Friday that he never gave final approval for the attack.

On Thursday night, the US deployed cyber warfare against Iran, according to Yahoo News.

The digital response reportedly targeted an Iran-based spy group that was involved in last week’s mine attacks on cargo ships.

Tensions have risen sharply in the region in recent weeks. The USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group has been deployed to the Gulf, and about 1,000 American troops are expected to be stationed in Qatar in the coming days. Meanwhile, US-imposed sanctions have constrained Iran’s economy.
