Iran has fired more than a dozen missiles targeting US troops based in Iraq in a major escalation of the brewing conflict in the Middle East.

The attacks on a reported two military bases were launched in retaliation for a US drone strike that killed its top commander in Baghdad last week, Iranian official news media said on Wednesday.

The branch of Iran’s armed forces behind the attacks, which has come in two waves, has also threatened to target the cities of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Haifa in Israel, if bombs are dropped on Iranian soil

It also said if the United States responds to its attacks, then “this time we will respond to you in America”.

The second round of attacks started an hour after the first phase took place, Tehran-based Tasnim news agency reported.

“It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting US military and coalition personnel at Al-Assad and Irbil,” Jonathan Hoffman, assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, said in a statement.

“We are working on initial battle damage assessments,” he added.

Tensions between the US and Iran have been steadily escalating since 2018, when US President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal and reimposed tough new economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

Since the 2000s, Iran has been accused of developing nuclear weapons and threatening stability in the Middle East.

Mr Hoffmane said US troops in the region had been on high alert “due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region.

The threat of a war between the United States and Iran may have briefly cooled, but the danger is far from over and the stakes could soon be higher than ever before.

If US speculation that Tehran has plans to build an atomic bomb is correct, the world could be contending with a nuclear-armed Iran in just months.

Among a raft of bombastic pledges made in the lead-up to the 2020 election, US President Donald Trump has vowed to retaliate hard if Iran decides to grow its weapons stockpile

His threat comes as Iran on Saturday admitted to “unintentionally” shooting down a Ukrainian jetliner and killing all 176 passengers and crew.

To understand how the Iran-US crisis developed, click here.
After a tense week of escalating violence in the Middle East, Iran has now stopped playing by the rules outlined in its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Its unofficial withdrawal from the hard-won deal follows Wednesday’s ballistic missile attacks on US airbases in retaliation for the killing of its top commander by a US drone strike last week.

Under the agreement, Iran was forced to abide by tight restrictions designed to limit its ability to build nuclear weapons.

In return, major countries like France, China, the US and Australia promised to lift tough economic sanctions against Iran’s trade, energy and banking.

Now, by ignoring parts of the agreement, the Islamic Republic is free to speed up its enrichment of uranium and build more advanced centrifuges to enable it to build nuclear weapons.

This is exactly what the deal – championed by Barack Obama and formally abandoned by Mr Trump in 2018, and now informally by Iran – aimed to avoid.

Mr Trump was quick to address this renewed threat as he made a public address on Thursday

But Tilman Ruff, co-founder of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), said Iran already possessed most of the materials and equipment required to build an atomic bomb.

“It’s certainly feasible for Iran to have nuclear weapons within no more than a year,” Mr Ruff told The New Daily.

“I’m sure there are forces in Iran, strengthened by this escalation, that would want to build nuclear weapons.”

Tit-for-tat rhetoric between the US and Iran that escalated into violence in the past week was so alarming it triggered fears of another war in the Middle East.

Tensions reached boiling point when a US drone strike deliberately killed Iran’s most powerful military commander, General Qassem Soleimani, at a Baghdad airport.

The general’s funeral was attended by hundreds of thousands of wailing Iranians and cost the lives of dozens during a stampede on the crowded streets
