What is the U.S. planning? Deployment of F-22 stealth jets to the Middle East stokes war fears

The U.S. has deployed F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jets to the Middle East for the first time, and this has many concerned that military action against Iran may be in the near future.  Could we soon see the spark that causes World War 3 to erupt?  The following comes from the Express

The US has deployed a mysterious number of F-22 Raptor stealth fighters for the first time to the Middle East, amid growing fears of a clash with Iran. The number of F-22 Raptors remains unclear but photographers spotted at least a dozen of the radar-evading jets at the Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar for the first time ever. In response, a senior Iranian figure has threatened to annihilate Israel “with half an hour” if the US strikes Iran.

The deployment of the top-secret stealth fighter jets has put the Middle East is on alert amid rising tensions between Iran and the US.

Earlier today, the US Air Force confirmed the presence of the fighter jets – insisting they were deployed to “defend American forces and interests”.
