BREAKING: President Trump and Pentagon Respond to Iran's Missile Attack

Iran retaliated and launched missiles at American bases in Iraq.

As of right now, it doesn't look too bad and we're now aware of any casualties as of yet. Hopefully, there aren't any.

Now the elephant in the room is whether or not the U.S. military is going to launch a strike back at Iran, if we're just going to let this one slide, or if we're going to actually declare war on Iran.

There was a meeting with Congress and other officials Tuesday afternoon to discuss what possible measures can be taken

President Trump tweeted,

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.

Jonathan Hoffman who is Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs issued a statement:

At approximately 5:30 p.m. (EST) on January 7, Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq. It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting U.S. military and coalition personnel at Al-Assad and Irbil.

We are working on initial battle damage assessments.

In recent days and in response to Iranian threats and actions, the Department of Defense has taken all appropriate measures to safeguard our personnel and partners. These bases have been on high alert due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region.

As we evaluate the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures to protect and defend U.S. personnel, partners, and allies in the region.

Due to the dynamic nature of the situation, we will continue to provide updates as they become available.
