U.S President Donald Trump Posted “All is well!” on Twitter, After the Iran missile attack at US Bases in Iraq. amazuy.com. US-Iran news: Bases housing American troops hit.

Iran has fired 22 ballistic missiles at two Iraqi bases housing US and coalition troops.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard has confirmed it launched the attack targeting the Erbil and Al Asad bases in retaliation for last week's killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani in a US airstrike on Friday morning just outside Baghdad airport.

US and Iraqi officials have said there are no immediate reports of casualties - though buildings are still being searched - and the Ministry of Defence has confirmed no UK personnel were affected.

Other coalition partners - Germany, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Poland - also said none of their troops were hurt.

Iraqi officials said 22 missiles were fired, with four failing to launch, after Iran told Iraqi prime minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi just after midnight on Wednesday the "response to the assassination of the martyr Qassem Soleimani had begun or it will start in a little while".

Mr Abdul-Mahdi said he was told the strike would be limited to where the US army is located in Iraq "without specifying its location".

He said the Americans called him at the same time to say rockets were falling on Al Asad, Erbil "and in other locations".
