U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that there were no American casualties in the Iranian strikes on military bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq.
"No Americans were harmed in last night's attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties," Trump said in a White House address.
"Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down."
Trump credited an early warning system "that worked very well" for the fact that no Americans or Iraqis were killed.
The launch was Tehran's most brazen direct assault on America since the 1979 seizing of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and came days after Trump authorized the targeted killing of Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite Quds Force. Iran had pledged to retaliate, bringing the two countries closer to the brink of war.
