SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq — In retaliation for the killing of Iran's Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps fired dozens of ballistic missiles at two US military bases in Iraq. No causalities have been reported.
In the early morning of Jan. 8 local time, “Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against US military and coalition forces in Iraq,” Jonathan Hoffman, assistant to the secretary of US Department of Defense for Public Affairs, said in a statement. “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 Erbil. We are working on initial battle damage assessments.”
