Iran has retaliated against the U.S. for killing it’s Quds Force terrorist leader Qassim Soleimani by launching dozens of surface-to-surface ballistic missiles at U.S. forces in Iraq.
According to the Pentagon, the targets were the military bases in Irbil and Al-Assad.
“In recent days and in response to Iranian threats and actions, the Department of Defense has taken all appropriate measures to safeguard our personnel and partners. These bases have been on high alert due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region. As we evaluate the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures to protect and defend U.S. personnel, partners, and allies in the region.”- The Pentagon
