Fars News Agency close to the Revolutionary Guards also wrote in a short news release: “Some news sources report that Iranian ballistic missiles were fired at the US base in Iraq.”

The semi-official Fars News Agency released the news with the headline “Hard revenge / fist on the Americans”.

Al-Miyadin reports that “eleven (unconfirmed) ballistic missiles hit the Ein al-Assad air base, which is home to US forces.”

The source also said that an explosion was heard in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.

“Under Iranian missile strikes. These are either cruise missiles or short range ballistic missiles throughout the country,” Jennifer Griffin, a Fox News correspondent, quoted a US military source in Iraq as saying on Twitter.
