Report: Israel warned US about possible Iran attack

Israel warned the United States that Iran is plotting to attack its interests in the Gulf, Axios reported on Monday citing senior Israeli officials.

Earlier, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said Washington is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier group along with a bomber task force to the Middle East as a warning to Iran. "The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces," Bolton stated. Bolton's statement did not mention any explicit reason for the move, only citing it was in response to "a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings."

According to the report, the information gathered by the Mossad intelligence agency was first shared two weeks ago.
