New stunning Revelations made over 34 American soldiers linked with Iranian Missile strike
WASHINGTON: New stunning Revelations made over 34 American soldiers linked with Iranian Missile strike.
34 US army men had been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury following strikes by Iran on a base in Iraq earlier this month.
US President Donald Trump and other top officials initially said Iran's attack had not killed or injured any US service members.
Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman told reporters that eight service members who had been previously transported to Germany had been moved to the US. Hoffman said the service members were transported earlier Friday and would receive treatment at either Walter Reed military hospital or their home bases.
Last week the US military said 11 troops had been treated for concussion symptoms after the attack on the Ain al-Asad air base in western Iraq and this week said additional troops had been moved out of Iraq for potential injuries.
Nine service members remain in Germany and are undergoing evaluations and treatment.
On Wednesday, Trump appeared to play down the injuries, saying he "heard that they had headaches and a couple of other things."
