The US military is preparing to boost its "defense posture" in the Persian Gulf, with officials claiming that the Pentagon will deploy additional assets to patrol commercial shipping lanes and protect private vessels from Iran. The move comes after Washington accused Tehran of seizing multiple foreign oil tankers. US Central Command (CENTCOM) is now working with regional allies and partners to increase the rotation of ships and aircraft patrolling in and around the Strait of Hormuz. Iran has accused the US of "warmongering" and stirring up tensions by dispatching ships and submarines to the region in the past.
