Early Wednesday morning local time Iran launched more than a dozen missiles at two military bases in Iraq that houses U.S. troops.
No casualties have been reported.
This video from the Fars News Agency claims to show the moments rockets hit the base.
But this cannot be independently confirmed.
Iran says the attacks were retaliation for last week’s killing of the country’s top general Qasem Soleimani.
Iran’s supreme leader said Iran gave the U.S. “a slap in the face last night.”
Iran claims it doesn’t want war but also says that any retaliation from Trump would be considered an escalation and responded to as such.
Following the attacks President Trump tweeted, “All is well!…So far, so good!”
On Wednesday (Today) Trump addressed the nation.
He said Iran appears to be standing down and he will impose new sanctions.
His address to the nation appeared to suggest there would not be a military response to the attacks.

He also criticized Soleimani saying he was the “world’s top terrorist” and that Soleimani “was planning new attacks on American targets, but we stopped him.”
