 US President Donald Trump on Friday said the US military was "cocked and loaded to retaliate" against Iran, but he changed his mind 10 minutes before planned strikes.

He had initially approved attacks on several Iranian targets such as radar and missile batteries, Xinhua news agency quoted a New York Times report as saying citing administration officials.
 


Trump, however, on Thursday night called off the operation that had been underway in its early stages, a senior administration official said.

Attacks on three sites were planned in response to the shooting down of a US unmanned drone this week.
