Situation Report: Iranian Retaliatory Strike
Early on January 08 2020, Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) launched up to twenty-two short-range ballistic missiles against two military bases used by US troops in Iraq. There are no reported casualties and only minimal damage. The attack was immediately claimed as a response to the US killing of Iranian General Qassem SOLEIMANI on January 03 2020. This is an ongoing situation that can have widespread implications which may incorporate a maritime element.
Due to the significance of the event, CSO Alliance – the authors of the Maritime Security Review – have decided to make our Situation Report visible to the public via our CSO Alliance website here.
