Irán ataca bases de EUA-Irak

By Duncan Mil

January 8, 2020 - Irán lanzó misiles contra objetivos de EUA en Irak el miércoles, alcanzando la base aérea Ain al-Asad y la base en Erbil. La Guardia Revolucionaria Islámica (IRGC) reivindicó la responsabilidad de los ataques.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei said the attack was “a slap in the face” for the U.S.

“When it comes to confrontation, military action of this kind is not enough. What is important is that the corrupt presence of the United States should come to an end,” he said.

The IRGC said the attack was in retaliation for the death of Major General Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force, killed in a missile strike outside Baghdad airport on the orders of President Trump.

”All is well!” Trump tweeted following the missile barrage.
