US President Donald Trump approved military strikes against Iran, but pulled back from launch, the New York Times reported.

Trump initially approved attacks on handful of targets such as radar, missile batteries, NYT cited administration officials as saying.

Planes were in the air, ships in position, but no missiles fired when order to stand down came, the report said.
