Mattis dismisses report US plans to strike Iran as ‘fiction'

WASHINGTON, Jul. 28 (MNA) –The alleged plans detailing an American attack on Iran surfaced in the media amid ongoing saber-rattling between the two countries in a spat ignited by Washington's decision to pull out of the 2015 nuclear deal.

At a news conference on Friday, US Defense Secretary James Mattis denied reports that Washington was evaluating a strike against Tehran.

The statement comes after ABC News disclosed America's plans to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities, citing senior Australian government figures. According to ABC, Australian and British forces would be deployed to help identify possible targets.
