Iran launches more than a dozen ballistic missiles at Iraqi air bases housing US troops ... President Trump Responds

Tehran has launched a missile attack on two Iraqi air bases housing US troops, a retaliatory attack for the killing of their top general, according to the Pentagon and Iran state TV.
More than a dozen ballistic missiles were fired from Iran at the Al-Assad and Irbil air bases, according to a Pentagon spokesman.
“We are working on initial battle damage assessments,” the statement said.
Details on fatalities and injuries are unclear.
Iran state TV described the strike as revenge for the US attack last Thursday near Baghdad airport that killed Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

After the attack, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard warned the U.S. and its regional allies against retaliating over the missile attack in Iraq. The Guard issued the warning via a statement carried by Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency.
“We are warning all American allies, who gave their bases to its terrorist army, that any territory that is the starting point of aggressive acts against Iran will be targeted,” the Guard said. It also threatened Israel.
