Debris and rubble are seen at the site where an Iranian missile hit at Ain al-Asad air base, January 13, 2020. One cruise missile had knocked down more than a dozen heavy concrete blast walls and incinerated shipping containers used as living space by U.S. soldiers. Another had destroyed two hangars that normally house Blackhawk helicopters, blasting through offices nearby and causing a fuel fire that lasted hours, U.S. soldiers said.

What appears to be new damage at Al Asad air base is seen in a satellite picture January 8, 2020. The United States did not have Patriot air defenses at the base, putting the onus on local commanders to protect their troops. "We'd got notification there could be an attack a few hours prior so had moved equipment," said U.S. Staff Sergeant Tommie Caldwell. She said that by 10 p.m. all the staff she manages were ready to take cover. "People took this very seriously," she said. Three and a half hours later the missiles started arriving. Several soldiers said they continued for two hours.
