Eleven U.S. troops were injured in Jan. 8 Iran missile strike | Defense One

Iran’s January 8th missile attack on Iraq’s al-Asad air base left nearly a dozen American troops wounded. In the past week, the wounded troops were medically evacuated to U.S. military hospitals in Landstuhl, Germany and Kuwait. “No casualties” were reported by officials from the military and Trump administration; however, after being granted access to the base, news organizations discovered that some personnel had been treated for concussions. U.S. military command spokesperson in Baghdad said, “As previously stated, while no U.S. service members were killed in the attack, several were treated for concussion symptoms from the blast and are still being assessed.”
