Missile Attack : We Don't Want War Iran Tells U.S

Iran foreign minister has insisted they do not want a war despite firing more than a dozen ballistic missiles at two military bases in Iraq housing American troops in a revenge attack for the U.S. drone strike that killed their top Iranian general.

Foreign minister Javad Zarif defended the missile strikes saying Iran took ‘proportionate measures’ and was only acting in ‘self defense’ when they struck back at the U.S. Zarif, however, warned that Iran did not ‘seek escalation or war’ but vowed to continue defending themselves if the U.S. chose to retaliate. The firing of the missiles late Tuesday was a major escalation between Iran and the U.S. and raised immediate fears that the two longtime enemies were inching closer to war. But the response from Iran’s foreign minister is one of a few indicators that there might not be further retaliation on either side – at least in the short term. Meanwhile after reports of the missile strike carried out by iran on American bases in Iraq, the U.S president Donald Trump made a tweet saying "All is well, so far so good",with a promise to give a briefing later in the morning. The world now awaits the decision which would be taken by the U.S as that decision could either escalate or de-escalte the brewing tensions in the middle east.
