The US has deployed a squadron of F-22 stealth fighters to Qatar, the first time the jets have been deployed there, in a move to show Iran that it is taking these threats seriously.

The move was announced by the US military on Friday, adding to the buildup of US forces in the Gulf. A sign that we Christians need to pray for the situation with Iran.

The US Air Forces Central Military Command said in a statement that the F-22 Raptor stealth fighters have been deployed “to defend American forces and interests”.

Officials have not specified the number of jets sent.

Tensions have been rising between Iran and the United States over the past few weeks after Iran threatened to end its involvement in the Iran Deal. Iran has also been accused of

One of the acts of aggression from Iran was to shoot down a US Navy drone in international waters. This action was reported to have caused the US to consider retaliatory strikes on Iran, with President Trump cancelling the attack order just minutes before it took place. The US is instead introducing more sanctions against Iran, which are said to have a crippling effect on Iran’s struggling economy.

Iran has also been accused of carrying out attacks against oil tankers in the Persian Gulf.

Vigilant to the threat of Iran

Operation Mordecai is CUFI UK’s strategic plan to highlight the threat from Iran to Israel and the West.

The on-going campaign involves a number of actions on wide-ranging issues relating to Iran, but its primary aim is to ensure Britain positions itself on the right side of history by defending Israel against the tyrannous Iranian regime.

Operation Mordecai takes inspiration from the Biblical account of Esther’s cousin, Mordecai, whom having heard of the plot to annihilate the Jews, sought the Lord, warned about what was planned and took action. Please see below for more details about this campaign and how you can get involved.
