Early on Wednesday, Iran launched more than a dozen missiles on multiple bases in Iraq that house US troops.

After the attack, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted, "Iran took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of UN Charter targeting base from which cowardly armed attack against our citizens & senior officials were launched. We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression."

"We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression," he added.
