Iran Denies Report Trump Sent Warning About Imminent Attack


Update: Iran's top national security official has denied a Reuters report claiming that Tehran had received a low-key message via Oman from the US warning of an imminent attack on the Islamic Republic.

"The US didn't send any message," Keyvan Khosravi, spokesman for the National Security Council, told Iranian television.

More dramatic details have trickled out this morning surrounding last night's US military strike operations on Iran, which were reportedly called off at the last moment by President Trump even as American ships and missile batteries were in position, even including planes in the air ready for an assault.

According to a new Reuters report, Iranian officials say they had received a message from the White House notifying that a major attack on Iran was imminent but that President Trump "was against war and wanted talks on a range of issues".
