At least 80 US troops that the Iranian parliament referred to as “American terrorists” were killed in attacks involving dozens of missiles launched by Iran on US targets in Iraq, mentioning that none of the missiles were intercepted, said Iranian state television on Wednesday. 

Citing a senior Revolutionary Guards source, the State TV said Iran had 100 other targets in the region in its sights if Washington took any retaliatory measures. US helicopters and military equipment were “severely damaged”, according to the Iranian state media. 

Earlier, Iran has launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles targeting the US presence in Iraq, including Ain Assad airbase, which hosts the largest US troop deployment in Iraq, and a military installation near Irbil.
