Iran launched a ballistic missile attack at two Iraqi bases which house US troops, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The attacks were Iran’s response to the US killing last week of top Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad. Iran has called that attack an “act of war” and “state terrorism” and vowed a response.
So far it seems that there were no casualties. US military sources said troops were given enough warning to reach shelters before the missiles struck.
Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted in the early hours of Wednesday morning after that attack, that Iran did not “seek escalation or war.”
Iran took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of UN Charter targeting base from which cowardly armed attack against our citizens & senior officials were launched.
We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression.

Though the US President Donald Trump has not issued a formal statement, but he wrote on Twitter;
All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.
