More Than a Dozen Missiles Hit U.S. Bases in Iraq

Iran claims they caused heavy casualties

President Donald Trump will address the nation from the White House at 11 a.m., following the Iranian forces’ launch of more than a dozen ballistic missiles against two military bases in Iraq early Wednesday local time, marking the most significant Iranian attack in a growing conflict with the United States.

The al-Asad air base in western Iraq, which houses some U.S. troops, was hit by at least six missiles, according to a U.S. defense official familiar with the situation. In a tweet late Tuesday, Trump proclaimed “All is well!” and vowed to address the nation on the situation Wednesday morning.

No U.S. casualties were immediately reported, but Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps claimed that dozens of U.S. troops were killed in revenge for a U.S. airstrike last week that killed a top Iranian commander, Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani.
