BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 P.M.) – Iranian state TV released a video on Wednesday of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) missile strikes against the U.S. forces in the ‘Ayn Al-Assad Airbase in western Iraq last night.
In the video released by Iranian state TV, the IRGC missiles can be seen taking off from their territory towards the ‘Ayn Al-Assad Airbase, which is where the U.S. Armed Forces are currently based in western Iraq.
The Pentagon said it would take “necessary measures” to defend US troops and regional allies following reports of Iranian missile strikes on US facilities in Iraq, confirming that over a dozen missiles were used in the attack.
“Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against US military and coalition forces in Iraq. It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases,” the Pentagon said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that it was now working on “initial battle damage assessments.”
