Iran launches ‘revenge’ rocket attacks at US troops in Iraq

Iran has launched “tens” of missiles at Iraq’s Ain Assad air base housing US troops following the killing of the country’s top general.

Iranian state TV described the attacks as Tehran’s revenge operation over the killing of General Qassem Soleimani.

It said the missiles were fired by Tehran’s Revolutionary Guard aerospace division and the operation was named “Marytr Soleimani”.

A White House spokesperson said: “The President has been briefed and is monitoring the situation closely and consulting with his national security team.”
