Currently the information on the damage of the US side is quite contradictory. Russian and Iranian media claim that, at Ayn al-Asad air base, many US military aircraft have been destroyed and damaged.

Meanwhile, information from Al Mayadeen TV Channel said: “A number of military aircraft were destroyed while parked on the runway of the air base.”
The Islamic Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) says more than 80 American soldiers have been killed and about 200 injured in IRGC-launched missile attacks against Ayn al-Asad base:
“According to accurate reports of our regional sources, at least 80 American soldiers were killed and 200 injured – and immediately removed from the base by helicopter.”
Despite the damage figures released by Russia and Iran, US President Donald Trump tweeted: “All is well, after a series of Iranian ballistic missile attacks. on two US bases and a coalition in Iraq “.
