National security advisor says Iranian mines likely used in UAE tanker attack

According to a report by Reuters, on Wednesday, US National Security Advisor John Bolton said that naval mines &apos;almost certainly from Iran&apos; were used to attack oil tankers off the United Arab Emirates this month, while also warning Tehran against conducting new operations.

Bolton reportedly said that the &apos;prudent and responsible&apos; approach taken by the United States, which has increased its military presence in the region, had made it clear that such actions by Iran and its proxies risked a &apos;very strong&apos; response from the U.S. Reuters reports that Bolton made the comments while speaking to reporters in Abu Dhabi ahead of emergency summits of Arab leaders in Saudi Arabia called to discuss the implications of the tanker attacks, and drone strikes two days later, on oil pumping stations in the region.
