Iran has received a message from US President Donald Trump over the Sultanate of Oman to warn of an imminent US attack on Iran, two Iranian officials said in a press release on Friday.
The two officials spoke shortly after the New York Times reported that “Trump agreed to launch air strikes against Iran on Friday in retaliation for the fall of a US reconnaissance plane but canceled the last minute attacks.
” Trump said in his letter that he is against any war with Iran And wants to hold talks with Tehran on a number of issues … set a short period of time to get our response, but Iran’s immediate response is that the decision by Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on this issue. ”
“We have made it clear that Khamenei is opposed to any talks, but the message will be conveyed to him to make the decision, but the Omani official told us that any attack on Iran would have regional and international consequences,” the second official said.
After weeks of mounting tensions amid a series of attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf, Iran said on Thursday it had shot down a US military surveillance plane, fueling fears of an open military confrontation between the rival countries.
As tension escalated, the US Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order banning US airlines from flying over Iranian-controlled airspace over the Strait of Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman until further notice.
Iran’s air defense forces today published a series of photographs showing various parts of the American March plane that was dropped on Thursday.
The pictures show different remnants of the aircraft, which the Revolutionary Guards dropped at dawn yesterday “after entering the country’s airspace and not over international waters.”
