Iranian retaliation begins: US bases in Iraq under attack
Fifteen ballistic missiles were fired from Iran across Iraq in a series of coordinated attacks on US forces in retaliation for the elimination of arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani.
No casualties reported.
At least five rockets were launched from Iran towards the Ain al-Assad airbase which houses both Iraqi and US troops in Anbar province, western Iraq. The base is believed to be holding thousands of US troops.
A security source for al-Mayadeen has confirmed that a plane was destroyed on the runway at Ain al-Assad base.
Iran threatened that if there is retaliation for the two waves of attacks they launched, their third wave will destroy Dubai and Haifa.
Israel now on peak alert for possible Hezbollah and direct attacks from Iran in the coming hours.
The Pentagon confirmed that of the 15 missiles launched by Iran, 10 hit the al-Assad airbase, one missile struck the Combined Joint Operations in Irbil, and four missiles failed.
Iranian state tv said the IRGC terror group has officially begun retaliation against US forces following the elimination of arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani.
“We warn all allied countries of the US that if attacks are launched from bases in their countries on Iran, they will be a target of military retaliation,” the terror group said in a statement.
The IRGC terror group also said they have targeted a location in Kurdistan.
US Jets were seen taking off from UAE. Iranian news media reporting Iran will also target UAE if US jets strike Iran from UAE.
It has been confirmed that Iran’s Air Force has taken off from its bases. This risks becoming a full-scale war between the US and Iran.
Iranian proxy terrorists have announced the start of “Operation Crushing Response”.
The security level has been raised around the White House, some Secret Service agents seen with assault rifles.
“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”, President Trump tweeted.
Three rockets exploded in Baghdad on Sunday, including two inside the capital’s heavily fortified Green Zone which houses government buildings and the US Embassy.
Six people were wounded in the attacks.
In addition to the two rockets that exploded in the Green Zone, another exploded in the nearby Jadriya area.
The attacks come after the elimination of arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran’s extra-territorial terror group Quds Force and one of the country’s most powerful figures.
The United States will quickly strike back, “perhaps in a disproportionate manner,” if Iran strikes any American person or target, President Trump said on Sunday.
