U.S. President Donald Trump threatens to strike Iran in case of Tehran's provocations in the Gulf region. Trump said this to reporters at the White House, Politico reports.

"We are better prepared than ever. If Iran does something, they will be hit with a blow they have not seen before," Trump said.

He drew attention to his desire to stop the involvement of U.S. soldiers in numerous wars in different corners of the world but did not rule out the probability of new wars, in which the US Army would have to participate.

As we reported earlier, President Donald Trump has ordered all U.S. troops to withdraw from the country’s north to avoid a bloody conflict between Turkey and U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters that “gets worse by the hour."

This was stated by the head of the Pentagon, Mark Esper, the Associated Press reported.

The pullback suggests a likely full withdrawal from Syria of the roughly 1,000 U.S. troops that had been partnering with the Kurds to combat the Islamic State group in northeastern Syria, although Esper did not say that U.S. troops are leaving the country.

The U.S. also has come to believe that the Kurds are attempting to “cut a deal” with the Syrian army and Russia to counter the invading Turks, he said. As a result, Trump “directed that we begin a deliberate withdrawal of forces from northern Syria,” Esper said.
