Report: Iran Launches 2nd Round of Missiles Against U.S. Forces Iran has reportedly launched a second round of missiles at U.S. troops stationed at Iraq military bases, according to the Tasnim news agency. The attack began about an hour after the Iran military fired a reported 12 missiles at the bases, the Tehran-based agency reports. Iran state TV is calling the back-to-back attacks a “revenge operation” in response to last week’s U.S. airstrike that killed Revolutionary Guard General Oassem Soleimani. It’s unclear whether anyone was killed or injured in the attacks.
Iran Warns US: Do NOT Retaliate The Iranian Revolutionary Guard has warned the U.S. against retaliating for two missile attacks on Iraq bases housing American troops. “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,” Guard officials said in a statement carried by Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency. A former Iranian nuclear negotiator also tweeted a photo of the Islamic Republic flag in an apparent mockery of a previous post by President Trump. In that tweet, which appeared last week after U.S. forces killed Revolutionary Guard General Oassem Soleimani in an airstrike, Trump posted a photo of an American flag. Following the second attack, Trump tweeted “All is well,” indicating there were no casualties. A rep for the Norwegian Armed Forces, which has 70 troops stationed at one of the targeted bases, has confirmed Trump’s assessment. If the U.S. doesn’t retaliate, will we look weak? What’s the best thing to do in this situation?
