Iran Launches Missiles At Two US Military Bases In
In retaliation for the US killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, Iran has launched over a dozen ballistic missiles at least two air bases that house US and coalition troops in Iraq. Irani media reports claim 80 “American Terrorists” have been killed in the missile strikes.

Iran has attacked two targets in Iraq’s Erbil and Al-Asad cities late on Tuesday night.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that the "US is Iran's enemy" and described the attack on the US targets as a "slap in the face" to the US.

After the attack, U.S. President Donald Trump said in a tweet, “All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well-equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.”

Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif said that the attack was launched in self-defence and “we do not seek escalation or war”.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has condemned the Iranian missile attack. "We condemn this attack on Iraqi military bases hosting Coalition — including British — forces," he said. "We are concerned by reports of casualties." The UK has not yet confirmed potential British casualties.

Meanwhile, in a statement released on Iranian news agency IRNA, the Revolutionary Guards have said that they want to warn all U.S. allies who have allowed its ‘terrorist military’ to use their territory that any place from which action is taken against Iran will be targeted.
