According to the outlet, most of the military left the base, and the rest took refuge in bunkers. Also, according to the military, they knew that there would be an attack against the base, but they did not know what kind of attack it would be.
"It is a miracle that no one was injured on the blasted site, missiles landed just a few meters from the bunkers, and some employees remained outside everywhere," the officers said.
As we reported, the United States began deploying B-52 bombers in Diego Garcia, on an island base in the Indian Ocean. The bombers began to deploy because of the growing threat from Iran after the assassination of General Qassem Suleimani.
Six bombers are located 2,300 miles south of the southernmost point of Iran.
