US: 50 troops suffered traumatic brain injury after Iran attack

The Pentagon said on Tuesday that 50 US soldiers were now diagnosed with traumatic brain injury after missile attacks by Iran on a base in Iraq earlier this month, 16 more than the military had previously announced.

President Donald Trump and other top officials initially said Iran’s January 8 attack had not killed or injured any US service members.

Later, Trump appeared to play down the injuries, saying he “heard that they had headaches and a couple of other things.”
