US Air Force Deploys F-22 Stealth Fighters To Middle East Amid Tension With Iran

According to a report by Business Insider, US F-22 stealth fighters have returned to the Middle East to 'defend American forces and interests' at a time of high tension with Iran, although it is unclear whether the advanced jets have been deployed as part of the ongoing deterrence mission or for some other purpose.

US Air Forces Central Command said in a statement released on Friday that an unspecified number of US Air Force F-22 Raptors arrived in the US Central Command area of responsibility on Thursday, flying into Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar.
