The United States is likely to deploy anti-missile systems in Iraq to protect its troops and military bases from possible future attacks by Iran or its proxies, Fox News cited a Pentagon official.


The deployment of an anti-missile system in Iraq comes to consideration after Iran hit the US bases in Iraq earlier this month in retaliation for the killing of Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Quds Force.

The missile strike again US targets in Erbil caused no harm, but those on Ain al-Assad airbase, Anbar province, caused some material damages.

Days after the attack, Washington said 11 US troops were flown out of Iraq for treatment. It said the troops were only affected by the wave of the explosions ant not serious injuries.
