Pentagon admits wounding 34 American soldiers as a result of the Iranian missile strike

Washington, (ST) - The Pentagon admitted that 34 of its soldiers were wounded as a result of an Iranian missile strike on Ain al-Assad base in western Iraq on the eighth of this month in response to the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani and his companions, stressing again the unreal Statements of President Donald Trump who denied any injuries.

"Eight American soldiers who had been transferred to Germany were taken to the United States," Reuters quoted Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman as saying.

The American army announced the day before yesterday about additional casualties among theirsoldiers as a result of the Iranian missile strike on Ain al-Assad base.

Captain Bill Urban, a spokesman for the American Central Command said that other soldiers were transferred for treatment at a US medical facility in Germany and it may be possible to identify additional injuries in the future.
On the 17th of this month, the US military admitted that 11 of its soldiers were wounded by targeting Iran, Ein al-Assad base.

According to observers, Trump's claim that there were no casualties among his forces as a result of the Iranian strike comes in an attempt to absorb the anger of the Americans over his reckless policies towards Tehran by denying first, and then gradually announcing the losses of the American forces.
