Response to the murder of the commander Qassem Soleimani, Iran fired missiles at a US-led military forces in Iraq. We remind you that the commander was killed by a U.S. drone strike last week. Military action Iran cause concern, as they can lead to a global conflict in the middle East.
The President of Iran, Ali Khamenei, has long been advocating “Death to America” during another speech to the people, he spoke about the fact that the missile launch is a “slap in the face” to Washington, which should encourage the US government to withdraw its troops from the region.
We are still waiting for the comments of American President Donald trump, but in his Twitter he wrote - “All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at the two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties and damage is now being installed. Everything is going fine! Today we have a powerful and well-equipped military anywhere in the world! I'll make a statement tomorrow morning.”
According to experts, Tehran fired 15 missiles at U.S. targets. In turn, the U.S. military sent a report, which stated that the targets were at least two facilities in Iraq, which housed the coalition forces headed by the USA, the fire started around 1:30 a.m. Iraqi time (1:30 GMT). In turn, Iraq announced the launch of 22 missiles.
In Iraq say that Iran''s actions were justified by revenge for the death of the commander, but this will all end, as the authorities do not want war. Interesting is the fact that the missile launch coincided with the funeral of an influential military commander. Soleimani played a key role in the politics of Tehran against the United States, the company's goal was to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq. It is clear that Tehran could not leave the US aggression without a response.
Us officials refused to comment, stating only that not one American died. According to the state television of Iran has reported the death of 80 “American terrorists” and the corruption of American helicopters and military equipment, however, no evidence had been given.
Germany, Denmark, Norway and Poland reported that none of their military contingent in Iraq was not injured. Britain, whose military stationed in Iran, condemned the actions of Tehran. Iraq said its military has not suffered any losses.
Jonathan Hoffman, who is a Pentagon spokesman, said that was attacked on air base al-Asad base in Erbil, continuing - “as we assess the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures for the protection and defense of U. S. personnel, partners and allies in the region.”
