Iranian news agencies released footage showing the moment of Iranian missile launched on US military facilities near the Iraqi cities of Baghdad and Erbil on January 8. The text in Farsi in the top right corner reads “Harsh revenge”.
The missile strike was conducted by Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps. The strike was a direct response to the US assassination of prominent Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and other Iranian and Iraqi commanders in Baghdad on January 3.
The US military and political leadership has still not provided a comprehensive reaction to the Iranian attack. US President Donald Trump is expected to deliver an adress on Wednesday morning (local time).
