According to the New York Times, Trump approved military strikes against Iran in retaliation for downing an American surveillance drone.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted a map on Saturday with detailed coordinates which he said show a US drone shot down by Iran on Thursday was within the Islamic Republic's territorial waters.

The drone incident immediately heightened the crisis already gripping the wider region, which is rooted in Trump withdrawing the US a year ago from Iran's 2015 nuclear deal and imposing crippling new sanctions on Tehran.

However, Trump told NBC on Friday that if it comes Iran would experience "obliteration like you've never seen before".

Mr Trump, who was speaking to reporters at the White House, made his comments after recently calling off military actions against Iran to retaliate for the downing.

On Thursday night, the U.S. deployed cyber warfare against Iran, according to Yahoo News.

The digital response reportedly targeted an Iran-based spy group that was involved in last week's mine attacks on cargo ships.

"Firing even one bullet at Iran will set on fire the interests of America and its allies in the Middle East", Shekarchi said on Saturday, the Tasnim news agency reported.

Iranian officials told Reuters on Friday that Tehran had received a message from U.S. President Donald Trump through Oman overnight, warning that a U.S. attack on Iran was imminent.

"And I said, you know what - they shot down an unmanned drone, plane, whatever you want to call it, and here we are sitting with 150 dead people that would have taken place probably within a half an hour after I said, 'go ahead, '" Trump said.

The aborted United States military action was to have been in response to Iran's downing of a USA reconnaissance drone, which has seen tensions between the two countries soar after a series of attacks on oil tankers the U.S. has blamed on Iran. 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, ' he said in tweets, 'not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone'.

He said his administration was "moving forward" with new restrictions on the Iranian economy.

Iran has threatened to breach the deal if the European signatories to the deal fail to salvage it by shielding Tehran from USA sanctions.

The shootdown came with Iran already accused by Washington of carrying out attacks on tankers in the congested shipping lanes heading out of the Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz.

The aircraft could have entered Iran's airspace over a mistake by "a general or some operators", the commander of the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace arm, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh told state news agency IRNA on Saturday. "US aircraft routinely operate in the region, and do so in a manner consistent with worldwide law".
