Phrased as the retaliation Wednesday. In an official statement, the Iraqi military claimed that they struck the coalition bases between 1:45 AM and 2:45 AM with a series of ballistic missiles. While Iranian state television said at least 80 Americans were killed in the attacks, US President Donald Trump with a series of tweet portrayed “All is well!”
In addition to this, the Iran State TV also said the Iraqi military had 100 other targets in the region in its sights if Washington took any retaliatory measures.
