    Last Update 8 mins ago Missile attacks target US forces in Iraq, senior military source says; Iran suspected


    By Frank Miles | Fox NewsVideo US military source in Iraq reports attack from Iran

    Iranian missiles target U.S. forces in Iraq; national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin reports from the Pentagon.

    Missiles were fired early Wednesday in multiple locations across Iraq, a senior U.S. militarysource in the country told Fox News, describing it as a series of attacks on U.S. forces from Iran.

    The source told Fox News' Jennifer Griffin: "Under missile attack from Iran. These are either cruise missiles or short-range ballistic missiles. All over the country." The missiles struck near Al Assad Air Base in Anbar, among other locations. There was no immediate word on injuries or damage.

    Meantime, Iran state TV claimed Tehran launched "tens" of surface-to-surface missiles at Iraq's Ain Assad air base housing U.S. troops.

    It came days after Iranian Quds Force Gen. Qassem Soleimani was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad's airport. A senior Iraqi commander of an Iran-backed militia also was killed. The U.S. blamed Soleimani for the killing of hundreds of American troops, and said he was plotting new attacks just before his death.

    Iranian officials and President Trump have traded threats since Soleimani's death, and more U.S. troops have been deployed to the region amid heightened tensions.

    Iran-backed militias in Iraq, known as the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), have threatened revenge on American interests and personnel for the killings.

    On Sunday, Iraqi lawmakers approved a resolution to expel U.S. forces from the country. The resolution comes nearly five years after the government requested U.S. troops be deployed to Iraq after the Islamic State overtook vast swaths of the country.

    The terror group has since been defeated, Abdul-Mahdi said, adding the mission has now evolved into a U.S.-Iran proxy war.

    Fox News' Jennifer Griffin contributed to this report.

        "Except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall God governs in the affairs of men. I have lived, Sir, a long time..."

            Once again into the breach our men and woman go.

            All because of these goat fuckers who want to live in the 13 century.

            They are a scourge and I wish the USAF good hunting and safe return.

                  In addition to all our troops and other mobilized assets, we have a Carrier Strike Group (USS Harry S Truman) just outside the Straits of Hormuz, ready to enter the Persian Gulf, and a Marine Expeditionary Unit (LHD 5 - Bataan) entering the Med for a Middle East deployment.

                  The Iranians have no idea of the hell we can (and will) unleash on them, without using ground troops.

                    Trump warned them what would happen if the did anything. In turn, the responded by directly attacking one of our bases. I believe trump said we would act very hard and very fast and hit 52 targets.

                    let’s see how long it takes for our response.

                            I’d think the rogue factions here in CONUS and the cells they operate worldwide are a greater threat than the missiles. As long as the middles are conventional we can address that threat. The 7:30am E train or crosstown bus in Times Square or some random LI mall are the kinds of targets I’m worried about.

                              A second round of missile attacks is underway.

                              Israel a target in the next round?
