Pentagon Contradicts Trump and Says 11 U.S. Troops Injured in Iranian Strikes

HeadlineJan 17, 2020

The Pentagon now says 11 U.S. troops were injured in the Iranian missile strikes on two Iraqi military bases last week — contradicting President Trump’s earlier claims that no U.S. troops were harmed. Iran launched the strikes as retaliation for the United States’ assassination of Qassem Soleimani. Iran warned Iraq about its retaliatory missile strikes ahead of time. Despite these advance warnings, the Pentagon says 11 injured troops were transported to military hospitals in Germany and Kuwait and treated for concussion symptoms.
