Rumble / Trending NewsAccording to a report by Reuters, on Wednesday, US National Security Advisor John Bolton said that naval mines 'almost certainly from Iran' were used to attack oil tankers off the United Arab Emirates earlier this month, and cautioned Tehran against conducting further operations. Bolton reportedly said that the 'prudent and responsible' approach taken by the United States, which has increased its military presence in the region, made it clear that such actions by Iran and its proxies risked a 'very strong' response by the U.S.. Fars news agency reported that Tehran has denied involvement in either attack and Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi dismissed Bolton's remark as a 'ludicrous claim.'
