Pentagon: Number of US Troops Wounded in Iran Missile Attack Rises

KABUL (MEP) – The number of US troops who sustained traumatic brain injury when Iran launched missiles at the Ain al-Asad airbase in western Iraq last month has risen to 110, the Pentagon said Friday.

Accordingly, the figure is one higher than the last announced toll.

The new diagnosis brings the total number of U.S. service members who suffered brain injuries in the attack to 110, Hill reports.

President Donald Trump had initially said that no Americans were hurt in the Iran missile strike at the Ain al-Asad airbase in retaliation for the assassination of Qasem Soleimani, although authorities later reported that nearly a dozen troops were wounded.
