“All is well! Missiles were fired from Iran at two bases located in Iraq. The assessment of victims and injuries continues. Everything is going fine!”, Trump wrote on his Twitter page.
He added that the American army is the most powerful and equipped in the world. The American President promised to make an official statement on the missile strike on Wednesday, January 8.
Trump called an emergency meeting at the White House, which was attended by Pentagon chief Mark Esper, as well as United States Secretary of state Mike Pompeo.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran Javad Zarif said that it is “proportionate measures in self-defense.” The situation in the Middle East has worsened since the assassination of General Qasem Suleimani in Iraq.
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.
