USS Harry Truman carrier strike group reaches Persian Gulf

The American aircraft carrier USS Harry Truman and its strike group reached the Persian Gulf on Thursday after crossing the Suez Canal, and thus shifted from the US sixth fleet's area of operations to that of the fifth fleet, which includes the Indian Ocean. By sailing north, the aircraft carrier will be able to launch cruise missiles at ISIS targets in Iraq and act in concert with France's Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier that is also anchored in the gulf.
