UK on standby to send jets to Gulf, closer to Iran – report

Published on Nov 2, 2012 by 

Report in the British media say the UK is on standby to send war planes to the Persian Gulf. The jets would be stationed in the United Arab Emirates, just a couple of hundred km. from Iran. Britain’s Ministry of Defence says any such deployment won’t be over concerns about Iran’s nuclear programme.

Anti-war activist John Rees believes it’s bound to destabilize the situation in the region.
