The Pentagon on Friday laid out its plans to mount a multination maritime campaign in the Middle East and send additional troops to the region as tensions with Iran continue to rise, The Hill reports.

U.S. Central Command is developing the campaign, dubbed Operation Sentinel, to ensure freedom of navigation “in light of recent events in the Arabian Gulf region,” the Pentagon said.

The campaign’s goal is to deescalate tensions in international waters, specifically focusing on the Arabian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz, the Bab el-Mandeb Strait (BAM) and the Gulf of Oman, the Defense Department said.
