Stepping up its preparations for a possible strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, the United States is transporting hundreds of 387 ‘bunker-buster’ bombs to its air base on the British island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, a media report has claimed.

The US government signed a contract in January with Superior Maritime Services to transport 10 ammunition containers to Diego Garcia from Concord, California, Sunday Herald has reported.

The shipment includes 195 smart, guided Blu-110 bombs and 192 Blu-117 2,000lb bombs.

The key Iranian nuclear facilities are said to be underground and both these type of bombs are effective against reinforced or underground facilities.

The United States and Israel have repeatedly asserted that they do not rule out a military action to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions and that they are keeping all the options on the table.
