Late last night, the Iranian military said they had carried out an attack on US installations in Iraq.
The Pentagon says “more than a dozen” ballistic missiles were launched from Iran at two locations in Iraq - Al-Asad and Erbil. “These bases have been on high alert due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces & interests”
UK Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab responded with a statement on the attack:
"We condemn this attack on Iraqi military bases hosting Coalition - including British - forces.
"We are concerned by reports of casualties and use of ballistic missiles.
"We urge Iran not to repeat these reckless and dangerous attacks, and instead to pursue urgent de-escalation.
"A war in the Middle East would only benefit Daesh and other terrorist groups."
Javad Zarif, Iranian Foreign minister said:
"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."
US President Donald Trump said in a tweet:
"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."
