Jan 9, 2020 at 03:49 AM

The Quick Facts

  • Early Wednesday, Iran fired 22 missiles at two military bases in Iraq where American troops were stationed. The attack came as retaliation for the killing of Qassim Suleimani, a top Iranian commander. 
  • Iraqi and U.S. officials have said there were no American or Iraqi casualties in the strikes. 
  • In a televised address following the attacks, President Trump signaled a de-escalation of tensions. The president announced new economic sanctions against Tehran but did not call for more military action.

Food For Thought

Was President Trump’s response to Iran’s missile strikes the correct one? How will this week’s events play out in the long term?
