Iranian missiles hit bases, no Iraqi Casualties: Iraqi Military


Tehran, Iran: The Iraqi army said on Wednesday that there were no casualties as a result of Iranian rocket attacks on Iraqi bases used by US forces.

The army said in a statement from the state news agency that the attack lasted half an hour, starting at 1:45 am local time.

The statement said 22 rockets were fired. Seventeen missiles hit the Al-Asad airbase, two of which did not explode in the Hitan area west of the city of Hitan. Five other rockets hit the northern part of Erbil.

Iran launched a counterattack in the US on Wednesday after killing the revolutionary guard general Casim Solemani, a major upgrade that brought two old enemies closer to the war.

An American official said that American victims were not immediately reported, but the building was searched.

An adviser to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted that any unfavorable military action in the United States would undergo a total war in the region.

A senior official in the office of the Supreme Leader of Iran said the rocket attack on American targets was the weakest Iranian retribution package.

Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi called on all parties to be cautious, to adhere to international agreements and to respect the Iraqi state.

He added that this dangerous crisis threatened Iraq, the region and the world with a “destructive total war.”

The German defense minister condemned the rocket attack and called on Tehran to end the “spiral” conflict.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer told broadcaster ARD: “The German government strongly condemns this aggression and now it is mainly Iranians who avoid further escalation.”

British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab also condemned the attack on “Iraqi military bases that host joint forces, including British troops.”
“We are concerned about reports of victims and the use of ballistic missiles.

We urge Iran not to repeat these attacks and dangerous attacks, but to conduct an emergency downgrade. “

According to national television, the Iranian army has again called for the United States to withdraw its forces from the Middle East.

“Now they have understood our strength, it is time for the United States to withdraw its forces from the Middle East,” said General Mohammed Baghri, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, in a statement.

The chief of the Hashed Al-Shaabi paramilitary network in Iraq said on Wednesday that it was time to make an “Iraq response” to US drone attacks to kill the network’s Abu Ma Diis.

“The answer will not be less than the answer from Iran. This is a promise.

At the same time, the UAE energy minister Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei said he does not want to see a war or that the United States wants to become more aggressive in the Middle East.

He relieved concerns about a possible shortage of oil stocks and added that OPEC would respond when needed, but “we also have limitations” to replace possible oil shortages.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday morning to make a statement about the situation.

‘All is well!’ Trump said in a post on Twitter.
