(FOX NEWS) – Missiles were fired early Wednesday in multiple locations across Iraq, a senior U.S. military source in the country told Fox News, describing it as a series of attacks on U.S. forces from Iran.

The source told Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin: “Under missile attack from Iran. These are either cruise missiles or short-range ballistic missiles. All over the country.” The missiles struck near Al Assad Air Base in Anbar, among other locations.

There was no immediate word on injuries or damage.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said after the attack: “We are aware of the reports of attacks on U.S. facilities in Iraq. The president has been briefed and is monitoring the situation closely and consulting with his national security team.” It was not immediately clear how the U.S. may respond.

Meantime, Iran state TV claimed Tehran launched “tens” of surface-to-surface missiles at Iraq’s Ain Assad air base housing U.S. troops. State TV described it as Tehran’s revenge operation over the killing of Iranian Quds Force Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
