Iran us war

Iran us war - Middle East crisis:

Iran has attacked US bases in Iraq with more than a dozen missiles. There is still no reliable information about any fatalities.

The German soldiers in Erbil are doing well according to the operations command. Iran's state television speaks of 80 dead; Foreign Minister Zarif describes the attacks as "appropriate steps for self-defence".

Iran's spiritual and state leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, speaks of a "slap in the face" for the United States. The US troops would have to leave the region.

In retaliation for the targeted killing of the influential general Qassim Soleimani by the United States, Iran attacked US troops in Iraq.

This is fueling fears that the Middle East crisis will escalate further. According to Iranian state media, dozens of surface-to-surface missiles have been launched at the Ain al-Assad base west of Baghdad.

The United States had previously threatened massive counterattacks. Iran's spiritual leader Ajatollah Ali Khamenei speaks of a "slap in the face" for the United States.

The US troops should leave the region, he said. Their presence is the source of corruption. "The United States is the enemy of Iran."

Iran us war - Iran attacks US targets in Iraq:

The Pentagon confirmed the night's missile attacks: "It is clear that these missiles were fired from Iran and that at least two bases that house US troops have been attacked," said a statement by the Department of Defense.

The second base under attack is therefore in Erbil in the Kurdish region in northern Iraq. The Iraqi military confirms this. US President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter: "Everything is fine."

At present, it is still being investigated whether there has been damage or victims. So far it looks good. The United States has the strongest and best-equipped military in the world.

Iranian state television speaks of 80 "American terrorists" killed. Besides, helicopters and military equipment of the US military were badly damaged.

A total of 15 Iranian missiles were launched at US targets. None of them was intercepted. Trump wants to play down the damage after the attack with his tweet, it said.

The Iraqi military says there are no casualties among the domestic troops. During the night, however, 22 missiles were launched into Iraqi territory, 17 at the Al-Assad airbase and five at the Erbil base in the Kurdish region in northern Iraq.

Iran us war - German troops were warned:

According to a spokesman for the operational command, the German troops in Erbil are doing well. "We are in contact with the soldiers. The soldiers are doing well."

Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer confirmed this in the morning on the ARD: "The increased protective measures have taken effect."

The Bundeswehr is checking whether damage has occurred at the base in Erbil. The German soldiers were warned of the rocket fire and then went to shelters, according to a report by the chiefs of the Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee in the Bundestag.

According to a media report, the US soldiers were also warned. Thanks to an early alarm, those in the danger zone had had time to get to safety shelters, CNN reported, citing a member of the U.S. military.

Iran us war - Retribution attack for Soleimani's death:

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter that Iran had taken "reasonable steps of self-defence under Article 51 of the UN Charter" by attacking the base from which the attack on its citizens was launched.

Wrote Zarif, 'We are not looking for escalation or war, but we will defend ourselves against any aggression'

The rocket attacks were a retaliation attack after the fatal US air raid on Soleimani, the Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday night.

The action was carried out by the aviation unit of the Revolutionary Guard, which is responsible for the Iranian missile program.

The Revolutionary Guards warned the United States against counterattacks. Any U.S. response will be met with a tougher response, the Iranian armed forces elite unit said in a press release early Wednesday.

Besides, US allies should know that their bases, which are made available to the Americans, could also be the target of Iranian attacks if attacks on Iran were to take place from there, the statement said.

The US president had warned several times recently that any Iranian attack on US citizens or American institutions would be harshly returned.

Iran us war - Militia leaders also demand Iraqi retribution:

After the reaction of Iran to the targeted killing of Suleimani, according to the militia leader Kais al-Khasali, Iraq must now respond.

Iraq's response will not be any weaker than that of Iran. In addition to the Iranian general, the US military also targeted one of the leading commanders of the Iraqi people's mobilization forces, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, in Baghdad.

This organization, supported by Iran, mostly unites Shiite militias. Khazali leads the Assaib Ahl al-Hak militia, which the United States classifies as a terrorist organization.

The leadership of the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in Iraq maintains the support of the US-led coalition in the fight against the IS militia.

The extremists should not regain strength, it said in a statement. A military solution will not solve the problems.

The Kurdish leadership expressed concern after the Iranian attack on US-used bases in western Iraq and near Erbil, the capital of the Kurdish region. These should not be drawn into rivalries.

Oman currently sees no possibility of mediation between the United States and Iran. Foreign minister Yussef bin Alawi bin Abdullah says this, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai, on the sidelines of an event in Tehran. Oman traditionally maintains relations with both countries.

Many states hope for de-escalation, Israel sends congratulations to the United States

The current conflict is jeopardizing the efforts of the past few years in the fight against the radical Islamic IS militia, says EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell.

The German government has sharply condemned the Iranian retaliatory attack on US bases in Iraq.

"I can only say, certainly on behalf of the federal government, that we strongly reject this aggression," said Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (CDU) in the ARD "Morgenmagazin".

Now everything must be done to calm the situation. We urge Iran not to repeat such ruthless and dangerous attacks' Said Britain's Foreign Minister Dominic, Raab

The United Arab Emirates are calling for de-escalation in the region. This is wise and necessary, Foreign Minister Anwar Gargasch writes on Twitter. "A political path to stability must now follow."

China also calls for restraint and dialogue. The Foreign Ministry in Beijing said that tensions are increasing in the Middle East. One is in discussion with all important parties in the UN Security Council.

By contrast, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel is firmly on the side of the United States.

US President Donald Trump must be congratulated for his actions against Soleimani. Whoever tries to attack Israel will be hit hard.
