An informed military source has told Iran Press that an Iranian missile strike on a US airbase in western Iraq in the early hours of Wednesday morning has resulted in heavy losses for the US military, both in terms of personnel and equipment.

Iran Press/Middle East: The source added that they are very closely watching the military movements of the Americans after the missile strike. 

In a statement released in the early hours of Wednesday morning, the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) confirmed that a US airbase in western Iraq has been hit with 'tens of missiles'.

The attack came in response to a US terrorist drone strike days earlier that martyred one of Iran's top Generals, the former Commander of IRGC's elite Quds Force, Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.
