Missiles strike U.S. airbases in Iraq: Iranian state TV claims responsibility

Supporters of the Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary force attend the funeral procession of Iraqi paramilitary chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani, and eight others in the capital Baghdad's district of al-Jadriya, near the high-security Green Zone, on January 4, 2020. - Thousands of Iraqis chanting "Death to America" joined the funeral procession for Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani and Muhandis, both killed in a US air strike. The cortege set off around Kadhimiya, a Shiite pilgrimage district of Baghdad, before heading to the Green Zone government and diplomatic district where a state funeral was to be held attended by top dignitaries. In all, 10 people -- five Iraqis and five Iranians -- were killed in Friday morning's US strike on their motorcade just outside Baghdad airport.

Multiple news outlets are now reporting that at least one, possibly several, U.S. bases in Iraq have been hit with missiles and that Iranian state television is claiming responsibility for the attack, claiming “tens” of missiles have been launched in an operation intended to retaliate for the drone strike that killed Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
