The attacks come days after the killing of top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in an airstrike in Baghdad. With this air strike war may grow to full scale war between Iraq and United States.

Unites States killed top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani last week on the order of US President Donald Trump last week. US forces used precision strike drones to kill top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani.

US Administration said that the missile attack is an “act of war”and  "state terrorism" with US. Tehran already vowed to revenge for the killing of its top general Qasem Soleimani.

According to the media reports Pentagon is in process of accessing the damage done by missile attacks today.

It is noted that President Donald Trump visited the base in December 2018 during Christmas.

Today’s missile attack is liked with the killing of last week’s deadly attack authorized by US President in Iraq that killed Soleimani.

According to the previous media reports Iraq were moving their military vehicles mounted with rockets towards US interests.

Due to tension the oil price already surged along with the gold price. The stock price US stocks plunged due to the tension between two countries.
