Iranian Official Tweets Image of Iranian Flag After Ballistic Missile Attack

In a move that clearly is meant to counter President Trump’s tweeting of the American flag after the killing of General Soleimani, Iranian official Saaed Jalili tweeted an image of an Iranian flag after reports of Ballistic missiles being launched targeting a U.S. base in Iraq.

The impact of the 2 acts though can not be compared.

President Trump’s killing of General Soleimani resulted in a massive funeral event in Tehran where hundreds of thousands of Iranians mourned.

At this time, there are no reports of U.S. casualties following the Iranian ballistic missile strike, per CNN.

President Trump tweeted in response to the Ballistic Missile strike:

All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.


Iran’s foreign minister tweeted:

Iran took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of UN Charter targeting base from which cowardly armed attack against our citizens & senior officials were launched. We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression.
