“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,” Trump tweeted.

Iran attacked two US bases in Iraq with a barrage of missiles early Wednesday, the start of what Tehran promised would be retaliation for the killing of top Iranian commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

“The fierce revenge by the Revolutionary Guards has begun,” Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said in a statement on a Telegram channel.

The White House had earlier said in a statement that it was “aware” of attacks on US facilities in Iraq. “The President has been briefed and is monitoring the situation closely and consulting with his national security team,” the statement said.
