Earlier in the evening, Iran fired more than a dozen missiles, hitting two air bases in Iraq that houses U.S. troops. Tuesday's attack comes days after a U.S. airstrike near Baghdad's airport killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite Quds Force.

U.S. airstrike on January 3 prompted Iran to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear agreement.
