Trump Tweets “All Is Well” After Iran Missile Strike

President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday night “All is well!” and “so far, so good,” after Iran launched ballistic missiles at U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq.

“Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good!” the president tweeted.

Iran is believed to have launched more than a dozen missiles that were said to have targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq.

No official word on whether there had been any casualties.

The retaliatory strikes come less than a week after a U.S. airstrike killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

The Iranian launches come less than a week after the U.S. killed top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, commander of its Quds Force, in an airstrike in Iraq.

Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammed Javad Zarif, tweeted that Iran “took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense” under Article 51 of the United Nations charter.

“We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression,” Zarif said in the tweet.
