Iranian rockets hit two Iraqi bases hosting US troops

News Desk: Iran has fired more than a dozen rockets at two Iraqi military bases hosting US troops, the Pentagon confirmed.

The rockets fired at the Ain al-Asad base in Anbar province and a base in Erbil early on Wednesday came amid escalating tensions between Washington and Tehran following the US killing of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in Iraq last week.

The initial response from Washington has been muted. President Trump tweeted that ‘All was well’ and said casualties and damage were being assessed.

On the other side Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said the attack was “a slap in the face” for the US and called for and end to the US presence in the region.
