Lloyd Austin says he has ordered the carrier strike group USS Dwight D. Eisenhower to begin moving to the Eastern Mediterranean.

The Pentagon has sent a second carrier strike group to the eastern Mediterranean off the coast of Israel to prevent Iran or Hezbollah from joining the conflict between Israel and Hamas. ABC News reported this on Sunday, October 15, citing American officials.

The carrier strike group USS Dwight D. Eisenhower will be ordered to the eastern Mediterranean to join the carrier strike group USS Gerald R Ford, which arrived there earlier this week and is in international waters near Israel.

“I have ordered the carrier strike group USS Dwight D. Eisenhower to move to the Eastern Mediterranean as part of our efforts to deter hostilities against Israel or any efforts to expand this war following the Hamas attack on Israel,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said in a statement.

Senior US officials have previously said publicly that the presence of the USS Ford strike group in the eastern Mediterranean and the increased number of US Air Force fighters in the region are to demonstrate US commitment to Israel and act as a deter Iran and Hezbollah from intervening in the conflict between Israel.

Israel has ordered the closure of the main Tamar gas field in the eastern Mediterranean, operated by Chevron, for security reasons.
