The United States military on Monday announced that a guided missile has arrived in West Asia.

The US Central Command took to its social media ‘X’, and stated that an Ohio-class submarine arrived in the US Central Command area of responsibility on November 5.

According to CNN, the arrival of the missile seemed intended to display a message of deterrence clearly directed at regional adversaries like Iran and its proxies as the Biden administration tries to avoid a broader conflict amid the Israel-Hamas war.
