According to military sources from Washington , orders have been given to the USS Harry S. Truman carrier to turn course from the Persian Gulf and set out with the US Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean, The administrations decision comes in light of heightened marine and military tensions between Israel , Turkey and Iran .

 

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan's determination to keep a close eye on Israel was backed by Tehran 's parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani who claimed that any aggression in the Persian Gulf would only be met with military retaliation.

 

The statement comes in response to Israel 's Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman who maintained that Israel would no longer tolerate any ships with so called aid referring to the Freedom Flotilla which was attacked by Israeli commandos who descended from military helicopters. He claimed they were sent by absolute enemies with hostile objectives masked as humanitarian efforts.
