Live updates: More than a dozen missiles hit U.S. bases in Iraq, Iran claims there were heavy casualties – The Washington Post


No U.S. casualties were immediately reported, but Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps claimed that dozens of U.S. troops were killed in revenge for a U.S. airstrike last week that killed a top Iranian commander, Maj. Gen. Qasem Soleimani.

Here’s what we know so far:

● Iranian forces launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against two military bases in Iraq and claimed that at least 80 U.S. troops were killed. The U.S. military said it was still assessing casualties.

● Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, called the attack a “slap in the face” of the United States but said more needed to be done to end the U.S. presence in the region and avenge Soleimani’s death.

● President Trump will address the nation at 11 a.m.

● Airlines around the world are rerouting flights away from Iranian and Iraqi airspace.

● Iraq’s prime minister said he was informed of the attack ahead of time.
