Newly Released Drone Footage Shows Iranian Missile Attack on US Forces

Newly released drone footage shows Iranian ballistic missiles raining down on a base in Iraq where US forces were sheltering on January 8, 2020.

The attack was conducted in retaliation for the January 3 assassination of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani in Iraq by US forces.

Though no US personnel were killed in the barrage, over 100 suffered brain injuries from the force of explosions.

Iran mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian airliner leaving Tehran hours later.
