WASHINGTON, Jan 8 (Reuters) – United States President Donald Trump said that new additional sanctions would be placed on Iran after the missile strikes.
Trump added that the strikes did not harm any U.S troops stationed their and the damage on the base was minimal.
Iran fired missiles at air bases in Iraq early on Wednesday, saying that it was a retaliation for the earlier U.S assassination of Iranian Commander Qassem Soleimani.
Friction began between the U.S and Iran after President Trump’s withdrawal of the Iran Nuclear Deal and had also imposed sanctions on vital oil exports.
