US President Donald Trump decided to strike Iran in response to the downed us drone but later changed his mind. It is reported by the newspaper The New York Times.
According to the newspaper, on Thursday, June 20, the American leader approved a strike on a number of targets, including radars and missile batteries. The attack was scheduled for Friday morning, June 21, to reduce the risks of civilian casualties.
The American leader canceled the operation at the initial stage when the aircraft was in the air, the ships were in place, but the missiles were not yet released. The decision was postponed indefinitely.
Earlier, the head of state answered the journalist’s question about how the American state would react to Tehran’s actions: “You will see.” He said that the erroneous decision to shoot down an American drone was probably made by “some General.”
