On January 7, 2020, Iran sent more than a dozen missiles towards two Iraqi bases hosting US troops in what seems to be in retaliation for the American airstrike that killed a top Iranian general. According to Reuters, Iranian officials state that these strikes “concluded” its response to the killing of Qassem Soleimani. Donald Trump states in a tweet that an assessment of casualties and damage done is under way and that he will make a statement on the morning of January 8.
