Overseas on January 8, local time 8, Iran on at least two U.S. military bases in Iraq launched more than 10 missiles, the U.S. Department of Defense said the attack is being evaluated and considered how to respond. A commander of Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guard later said Irans missile attack was only the first step and said it would not let us troops go.

Todays missile attack is only the first step, a commander of Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guard said Tuesday, Reuters quoted Iranian state television as saying. The United States should consider withdrawing its troops from this area, rather than leaving them within our reach.

ABC News quoted defense officials as saying Iran fired 15 ballistic missiles at US bases in Iraq, 11 of which hit targets. Another military source said no Americans were killed in the missile attack.

U.S. air strikes in Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, killed Qasim Sulaimani, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards al Quds brigade, and muhandis, deputy commander of the Iraqi Shiite militia peoples mobilization organization. Iran later denounced the U.S. action as an act of international terrorism and said it would take severe retaliation.
