Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei boasted the day after Iran shot multiple ballistic missiles at a base containing U.S. soldiers that “last night we slapped the U.S. on the face”
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: (translated)
Today we are armed. The nation of Iran is equipped today against the bullies of the world. Last night, we slapped the U.S. on the face. When it comes to confrontation, military actions of this kind are not enough.
What is important is the corrupt presence of the United States in this region must come to an end. They brought war and hostility and deception and destruction to this region. Wherever they go, this happens.

Despite the bluster, it currently appear that there have been zero casualties.
