Multiple cruise missiles fired from inside Iran have targeted multiple US bases across Iraq. US officials have confirmed the attacks and Iranian officials have already taken credit for them.

“Under missile attack from Iran. These are either cruise missiles or short range ballistic missiles. All over the country.”
