US carrier presence in Gulf to decline, briefly

Published: 11.22.12, 01:19 / Israel News

The US aircraft carrier presence in the Gulf region will decline for about two months, from two to one carrier, due to unexpected repairs that have triggered a reshuffling of deployments, the Navy said on Wednesday.


It will be the first time since December 2010 the Navy has not had two carriers in the Gulf region for an extended period of time, as tensions with Iran simmer. (Reuters)
