  • Following what has been identified as an Iranian attack on Saudi oil facilities last month, the U.S. is deploying troops to Saudi Arabia.
  • Iran has released a British oil tanker it seized earlier this year.
  • Recent airstrikes on Iranian-backed militias in Iraq has resulted in calls for retaliation against Israel.
  • Benjamin Netanyahu continues his push to form Israel’s next coalition government after recent elections.
