The U.S. and its allies began to transfer their troops to the Persian Gulf, Interfax reported citing Israeli sources.

The troops arrived at the Omani island Masirah, located south of the Strait of Hormuz, where the U.S. Air Force base is placed.

Huffington Post reported that a U.S. base on the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean brought hundreds of concrete-bomb capable of destroying fortified underground bunkers.

Saudi Arabia itself has moved part of its ground forces in the eastern regions, where the main areas of oil production are.
