Officials in Tehran said their forces were on high alert when the United States responded to the missile attack. The operator who fired the plane believed it was an incoming American missile.

Iran’s attack on the bases has not killed anyone. US officials have denied speculation. Iran may have deliberately missed the troops to prevent further escalation of hostilities with the United States.
