Pentagon says 64 US soldiers hurt in Iran missile strike

US President Donald Trump had initially said no Americans were hurt by the missiles fired on a base housing US soldiers in the country’s west on January 8, for which he was accused by democrats later.

The Pentagon said Wednesday that 50 soldiers were injured in the Iranian strike on the Ain al-Asad base. The latest total is an increase of 14 on those numbers.
