DUBAI: The US Air Force said Sunday it flew a B-1B key plane over key oceanic chokepoints in the Mideast with partners including Israel in the midst of progressing strains with Iran as its atomic arrangement with world forces stays destroyed. 

The B-1B Lancer plane flew Saturday over the Strait of Hormuz, the restricted mouth of the Persian Gulf through which 20% of all oil exchanged passes. It additionally flew over the Red Sea, its restricted Bab el-Mandeb Strait and Egypt's Suez Canal.
