80 "American Terrorists" Killed In Missile Strikes: Iran State Media

Iran fired missiles Wednesday at Iraqi bases housing the US military, officials in Washington and Tehran said.


Iranian state television said on Wednesday that at least 80 "American terrorists" were killed in attacks involving 15 missiles Tehran launched on U.S. targets in Iraq, adding that none of the missiles were intercepted.

State TV, citing a senior Revolutionary Guards source, also said Iran had 100 other targets in the region in its sights if Washington took any retaliatory measures. It also said U.S. helicopters and military equipment were "severely damaged".

Iran strikes at US with missile attack

Iran has launched a series of missile attacks on an Iraqi military base housing US and coalition troops striking back at the US for the killing of a top Iranian general.

Iran launched missile attacks on U.S.-led forces in Iraq in the early hours of Wednesday in retaliation for the U.S. drone strike on an Iranian commander whose killing has raised fears of a wider war in the Middle East.
