#BREAKING: Iran Launches More Than Dozen’ Missiles at US Forces in Iraq
Iran fired missiles Wednesday at Iraqi bases used by the US military, officials in Washington and Tehran said, in the first act of the Islamic republic’s promised revenge for the US killing of a top Iranian general.
According to Courtney Kube of NBC News, “Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against U.S. forces and coalition forces in Iraq.”
“It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting US military and coalition personnel at Al-Assad and Irbil,” the Pentagon said.
It remains to be seen whether the attacks on the military bases have resulted in any casualties.
“These bases have been on high alert due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region,” a spokesman said.
