The US Pentagon has confirmed that ‘more than a dozen’ ballistic missiles were fired from Iran at two US bases in Iraq.
“At approximately 5.30pm (EST) on January 7, Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against US military 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.”
Iran’s Tasnim news agency has just reported a second wave of rocket attacks has commenced against the Al Asad air base in Iraq, according to The Guardian.
Iran says it has launched “tens” of surface-to-surface missiles at Iraq’s Ain Assad air base housing US troops over America’s killing of a top Iranian general.
