Tehran was not into war and they came to a conclusion after the killing of Qassem Soleimani on Friday.

US President Donald Trump responded on the incident saying that they are yet to know about the damage and casualities from the strikes. Trump visited the base in December 2018. Early reports said that there are no casualities reproted. Iranian state television said 80 "American terrorists" had been killed and U.S. helicopters and military equipment damaged. No evidence was provided as proof for the attacks and their words. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran "took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of the U.N. Charter".
