I'm seeing this from multiple sources on Twitter, from BBC Correspondents to NBC, claimed to be confirmed from military commanders on the ground that it's happening.


From senior US military source in Iraq:
“Under missile attack from Iran. These are either cruise missiles or short range ballistic missiles. All over the country.”

Maybe this is bigger than those "rocket attack" skirmishes.

There have been 3 of those every week in Iraq, for many months.

Just following the developments on www.independent.co.uk...

If this is a Iranian retaliatory strike and depending on the severity then we should expect a response.

Becoming pretty clear this is a Iranian retaliatory strikes I imagine a US response will happen pretty quickly. I hope for cooler heads but this was clearly expected.

BBC: US airbase in Iraq hit by rockets - reports




An airbase housing US and coalition troops in Iraq has been hit by rockets, according to US security sources.

The Al-Asad base was reportedly hit by multiple rockets. It is unclear if there have been any casualties.

It come after top Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani was killed in a drone strike in Baghdad on Friday, on the orders of US President Donald Trump.

Iran has threatened "severe revenge" for Soleimani's death.

Due to the Democrat's cowardly and disproportionate condemnation of President Trump (protecting U.S. interests abroad), the Shi'a controlled country of Iran, has taken this as a show of weakness. Now they are continuing their acts of terrorism launching ballistic missiles at American bases in Iraq, directly from Iran. President Trump will hold the Shi'a regime responsible and crush them like an empty soda can.
More concerning are the 100,000's of Shi'a here in The USA. Will they side with Iran and their brotherhood?

Hopefully this will be the excuse needed for droning Iran's leadership into the next life!

THEY are the head of the snake. Time to decapitate the serpent.

Fingers crossed.

These are apparently being fired *from* Iran into Iraq at the base that houses US soldiers.


Multiple missiles have been launched into Iraq from Iran targeting American bases.

Apparent footage posted up on twitter.com...of Strikes at Al Asad airbase. Cannot verify whether the footage is legitimate so would be helpful if anyone can confirm or debunk.

Live reporting on CNN is indicating that the Revolutionary Guard is taking responsibility. ~10 rockets. No word of casualties so far.
