US Warplanes Leave UAE Air Base After Iran Fires Ballistic Missiles at US Forces in Iraq
By: Hana Levi Julian, Jewish Press, January 8, 20200
More than six US Air Force F-35A Lightning II fighter jets left Al-Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates at around 2 am Wednesday, according to multiple sources, possibly heading to respond to Tuesday night’s Iranian attack on American targets in Iraq.
The warplanes left the UAE just about two minutes after the Ain Al-Asad Air Base came under rocket and missile fire from Iran, and from a local Iranian proxy militia in Iraq.
There are at least 5,000 American troops in Iraq, according to a report by Fox News. The Pentagon has told reporters there is no plan to withdraw forces at this time; officials told Fox News, “We are defending. We are not leaving.”
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Forces (IRGC), fired at least 12 Fateh-110 ballistic missiles from Iran at various sites where American forces are located, including many which were aimed at Ain Al-Asad.

The Kataib Hezbollah militia, which is the 45th Brigade of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Unit (PMU) and an Iranian proxy group, fired at least 40 Katyusha rockets at the base as well.
The missiles exploded in the US military camp in Ain Al-Asad, which hosts US and UK personnel as well as Iraqi forces, according to Middle East defense correspondent Babak Taghvaee.
Ain Al-Asad was not the only military base that was attacked, however; two other bases in use by the US Army in and near Erbil were also targeted by the Iranian IRGC Aerospace Base.
The attack is seen as the “official launch” of the start of Iran’s “Operation Soleimani” – the military operation intended to wreak vengeance on the United States in retaliation for last week’s targeted killing of IRGC Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani.
