US General Milley: Iran meant to kill US personnel in missile attack

US General Milley: Iran meant to kill US personnel in missile attack US General Milley: Iran meant to kill US personnel in missile attack

"At approximately 5:30 p.m. (EST) on January 7, Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against USA military and coalition forces in Iraq". Two Defense Department officials told Newsweek that 18 ballistic missiles struck Al Asad Airbase alone.

Iran will take "harsher revenge soon" after launching missile attacks on United States bases following the death of Qassem Soleimani, a revolutionary guards commander has warned. Some Iranian news sources reported casualties.

There are also reports that the Iranians had been directly communicating to the United States through a variety of sources including the Swiss embassy in Iran.

In a separate report, Tasnim quoted the deputy Guards head, Ali Fadavi, as saying Iranian missile attacks on USA targets were a display of Iran's military power and said US forces "couldn't do a damn thing".

In response to this, US President Trump said that the US doesn't have to necessarily hit back at Iran's retaliation militarily, instead, imposed new economic sanctions on Iran and called for peace, as the Islamic Republic was "standing down". Several others were wounded in the December attack. A Pentagon spokesman said the USA military was working on an assessment of the damage from the strikes.

"I think it's extremely important that we as a country, if we are going to - either intentionally or accidentally - slide into war, that we have a debate about it, " said freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., the measure's sponsor.

While the Pentagon says the missile strikes were created to kill American soldiers, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif claimed the attacks were "proportionate measures in self-defence".

In the Iranian letter, Mr Ravanchi wrote that Tehran "does not seek escalation or war" after exercising its right to self-defence by taking a "measured and proportionate military response targeting an American air base in Iraq".

"Iran appears to be standing down", he said.

However, she noted that the USA is also "ready to engage without preconditions in serious negotiations with Iran, with the goal of preventing further endangerment of worldwide peace and security or escalation by the Iranian regime", Craft said in a letter on Wednesday.

Zarif comments echoed Defense Secretary Dr. Mark T. Esper's comments during a Pentagon press briefing Tuesday and on CNN. "We do not want to use it", Trump said.

But Iran's UN Ambassador Majid Takht Ravanchi said the USA offer of talks was "unbelievable" while the United States continued to enforce harsh economic sanctions on Iran.

This came just hours after a second attack this week in Iraq.

The overall assessment by the Trump administration so far is that Iran deliberately avoided casualties because it wanted to avoid a more serious military confrontation with the United States.
