It is now reported that during the missile attack from Iran, eleven U.S. service members were injured.

Iran launched over a dozen missiles at U.S. bases in Iraq in response to the killing of the Iranian terrorist General Qassem Soleimani by a U.S. drone strike.

The Iranian attack on January 8 did not kill any Americans but according to U.S. Central Command spokesman Capt. Bill Urban, several “were treated for concussion symptoms from the blast and are still being assessed.”

He added, “As a standard procedure, all personnel in the vicinity of a blast are screened for traumatic brain injury, and if deemed appropriate are transported to a higher level of care.”

Original reports claimed that no Americans were killed or injured.

Capt. Bill Urban continued…

From Fox News:

He said that although no U.S. service members were killed in the attack on Al Assad Air Base, “in the days following the attack, out of an abundance of caution, some service members were transported… to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany, others were sent to Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, for follow-on screening.

When deemed fit for duty, the service members are expected to return to Iraq following screening.

The health and welfare of our personnel is a top priority and we will not discuss any individual’s medical status.

At this time, eight individuals have been transported to Landstuhl, and three have been transported to Camp Arifjan.”

The explosions at the base, about 110 miles west of Baghdad, created large craters, knocked over concrete barriers and destroyed facilities that house dozens of soldiers.
