US President Donald Trump on Wednesday tweeted "All is Well" after Iran launched ballistic missile attack at bases in Iraq housing US troops in retaliation over the killing of its top general Qasem Soleimani in a US airstrike.

"All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties and damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well-equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning," Donald Trump tweeted hours after Iran hit Iraqi bases.

Confirming the attacks, the Pentagon has said US President Donald Trump is closely monitoring the situation. According to Iranian state TV, more than 35 rockets were launched only at the Ayn al-Asad.
