US military releases new footage of Iranian missile attack

The US military has released previously unseen footage of the Iranian missile attack on US and coalition forces in Iraq last year.

A drone recorded the attack as a barrage of Iranian short-range ballistic missiles carrying between 1000 to 2000 pound munitions rained down on the Al Asad Air Base on January 8, 2020.

Iran launched the ballistic missile attack, targeting two bases in Iraq housing US forces, in retaliation for the killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani.

Iranian officials stated the attack began at 1.20am local time, the same time Mr Soleimani was killed.

“The fierce revenge by the Revolutionary Guards has begun,” Iran’s military said in a statement at the time.
