US President Donald Trump on Wednesday said no casualties have resulted from Iran’s missiles attack against US forces in Iraq on Tuesday, adding that the United States would impose additional sanctions against Tehran.

“No Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties,” Trump said in a televised White House address after Iran launched ballistic missiles at Iraqi bases housing US troops in retaliation for the US killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.

Trump noted in the remarks that “Iran appears to be standing down,” calling it “a good thing” for all parties concerned.

“The United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behavior,” he added.

The US president also highlighted the military strength of his country, which he suggested as the “best deterrent” and “does not mean we have to use it.” He said he would ask NATO to become more involved in the Middle East.

In the meantime, Trump hinted at potential cooperation between Washington and Tehran.

“The destruction of ISIS (the Islamic State) is good for Iran, and we should work together on this and other shared priorities,” he said at the conclusion of the speech.

The Pentagon on Tuesday confirmed that Iran had launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against at least two military bases housing the US and coalition forces in Iraq.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) had claimed responsibility for the missile attacks, saying that they were meant to retaliate the US killing of Soleimani. (Xinhua)
