Iran says missile attacks on US targets were 'legitimate self-defense'

Iran's missile attacks on U.S. targets in Iraq on Wednesday were "legitimate self-defense", Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told state TV, adding that Washington's assessment to retaliate should not be based on "illusions".
"Our action was a legitimate self-defense and the United States should avoid assessing it based on illusions," Zarif said.
Iran launched missile attacks on U.S.-led forces in Iraq in the early hours of Wednesday in retaliation for the U.S. drone strike that killed Iran's commander of Quds Force Qasem Soleimani.
