Iran Launches Dozens Of Ballistic Missiles Against U.S. Bases In Iraq

Iran has launched a massive attack against the United States in retaliation for the killing of a top Iranian general, firing a series of surface-to-surface missiles at two Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops and warning the United States and its allies in the region not to retaliate, according to several news outlets.

Iranian state TV said the attack was in revenge for the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani, whose funeral procession Tuesday in his hometown of Kerman prompted angry calls to avenge his death, which drastically raised tensions in the Middle East.

U.S. officials confirmed the strikes. There was no immediate word on injuries.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard warned the U.S. and its allies in the region against retaliating over the missile attack. The Guard issued the warning via a statement carried by Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency.

“We are warning all American allies, who gave their bases to its terrorist army, that any territory that is the starting point of aggressive acts against Iran will be targeted,” The Guard said.

This is a developing story.
