“A nuclear-powered Ohio-class submarine has arrived in the Middle East, US Central Command has said, in a rare announcement apparently aimed at deterring regional actors from escalating the conflict. The announcement was made on X, formerly known as Twitter, provided few details, including the name of the vessel or whether it is carrying cruise or nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles.
On Saturday, the US had said that a strike group including the flagship aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower as well as a guided missile cruiser and guided missile destroyers had also arrived in the region “as part of the increase in regional posture”.

The show of strength comes over the weekend while Secretary of State Antony Blinken has been shuffling across the region to Israel, Jordan, Turkey, and in meetings with Palestinian Maahmoud Abbas in the West Bank, and Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani in Baghdad. ”
