The Iran crisis

Trump says 'all is well!' after Iranian attacks against U.S. troops

President Trump has responded to Iran's attacks against two Iraqi bases hosting U.S. troops, tweeting on Tuesday night, "All is well!"

He added: "Assessment of casualties and damages taking place now. So far, so good!" Trump said the U.S. has "the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far!" and he will be making a statement about the attacks on Wednesday morning.

The Pentagon has confirmed that Iran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles at bases in western and northern Iraq. The attacks were in response to the death of Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who was killed last week in an airstrike authorized by Trump. Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps called the attacks "fierce revenge."
