Just after 1 am in Baghdad, multiple coalition warplanes targeted several Shia (Iranian backed) bases
The airstrikes were a retaliation for the rocket attack on Camp Taji the day before. The Camp Taji attack killed 2 Americans and 1 British soldier according to a senior U.S. military source.
The United States has plenty of assets in the region including USS Dwight D Eisenhower in the Red Sea, USS Harry S Truman in the Arabian Sea, dozens of fighter jets in Qatar & UAE , plus B1 bombers in Saudi Arabia.
It is currently unclear as to which assets from which source were used in the strikes.
The strikes were authorized by Trump earlier in the day
