He, however, vowed to impose new sanctions on Iran as a result of the retaliatory attack, CNN reports. He said the “powerful sanctions” will remain until Iran changes its behaviour.

“The United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime,” President Trump was quoted to have said.

Trump also vowed that Iran would never have a nuclear weapon as long as he is the president of the US.

The US president added that he will ask the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to get more involved in the crisis in the Middle East.

However, contrary to Trump’s statement, A report by Reuters indicates that Iranian state television earlier said that at least 80 “American terrorists” were killed in attacks involving 15 missiles Tehran launched on US targets in Iraq.
