Saeed Jalili, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council has seemed to mock United States President Donald Trump on Twitter. The leader posted the flag of Iran on his Twitter account soon after Iran struck at two Iraqi military bases that house American soldiers on Wednesday morning.

His tweet was similar to US President Donald Trump's tweet after the US killed General Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top general and the architect of Tehran’s proxy wars in the Middle East, who tweeted a picture of the American flag soon after the news of the General's death was known.

In another tweet, Jalili posted a picture of President Trump's book titled 'Crippled America' and added a caption that read "Trump, who had described America as crippled, must be aware that he can do nothing to Iran with a crippled body."

Iran's retaliatory move is another dangerous escalation that could draw the region deeper into turmoil, despite insistence by Washington and Tehran that neither side wants war. US and Iraqi officials said there were no casualties among their forces. 

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made clear that Iran's ballistic missile strikes were in revenge for the US killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani, whose death last week in an American drone strike in Baghdad prompted angry calls to avenge his slaying and drew crowds of Iranians, said to number in the millions, to the streets to mourn him.

“Last night they received a slap,” Khamenei said in a speech after the missile strikes. “These military actions are not sufficient (for revenge). What is important is that the corrupt presence of America in this region comes to an end."

'All is well!' President Donald Trump tweeted shortly after the missile attacks, adding, 'So far, so good' regarding casualties.
