Iran on January 7th 2020 fired 12 missiles on two US military bases in Iraq.
This comes as the first act of revenge for the recent assassination of Iran’s Military commander Qassem Soleiman
Since Qassem’s death, Iran has reiterated its commitment to teach the US valuable a lesson.
According to the US Department of defense, Iran might also attack Dubai and Israel because of their perceived support for the US activities in the Middle East.
The US has not released any report on the casualties saying that it is still assessing the magnitude of damage.
Commenting on the issue, the Assistant to the Secretary of Defence for Public Affairs Jonathan Hoffman said
“Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against US military and coalition forces in Iraq. It is clear that the missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting US military and coalition personnel at al-Assad and Irbil
Accordingly, the US has deployed more than 3500 troops to Iran as the stand-off continues to escalate.
