Iran says they will defends their country after threatening two US base with missiles

Iran on Tuesday January 7, fired a barrage of missiles on two US bases in Iraq following the country’s threats to revenge the US killing of Qassem Soleimani, the former head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps Quds Forces.

Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif has since called the missle attacks ‘self-defense,’ adding that they do ‘not seek escalation or war’ but would defend themselves against any aggression.
