Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said on Monday that Washington must deliver an "overwhelming" military response if U.S. interests are threatened by Iran and urged President Donald Trump to "stand firm".

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has warned US commercial airliners flying over the waters of the Persian Gulf that they risk being misidentified amid rising tensions between the USA and Iran.

Trump also reacted to a ruling by a judge against a lawsuit challenge a House subpoena for his financial records. The Iranian regime, like North Korea, may be hoping to call Trump's bluff, shrugging off Trump's tweets with the assumption that neither he nor American military planners are seriously considering a real intervention. To propel Congress to act, we must make clear that the American people - Jewish Americans included - oppose a catastrophic war of choice against Iran.

Amid unspecified threats from Iran, Trump has stationed F-52 bombers at a military base in Qatar and evacuated non-essential personnel from Iraq.

The incidents added to already heightened tensions in the region following the tightening of U.S. sanctions on Iran, particularly its vital oil exports, and the deployment of U.S. warships and bombers to the Arabian Gulf to deter what White House officials said was a "credible threat" of attacks on its interests by Iran or its proxies.

The latest frictions come after Iran suspended its commitments under the 2015 global nuclear deal, and threatened to resume production of enriched uranium which is used to make reactor fuel and nuclear weapons.

"There will be no war because neither do we want a war, nor has anyone the idea or illusion it can confront Iran in the region", Zarif said at the conclusion of a visit to Beijing.

Iranian officials have denied involvement in the tanker attacks, saying Tehran's enemies carried them out to lay the groundwork for war against Iran. The U.S. responds by imposing sanctions on Iran's metals industry. His comments came after he was briefed on tensions with Tehran by U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton, a well-known hawk who had been in favor of an attack on Iran even before he took his role in the Trump administration.
