Iranian TV says Trump's tweet that 'all is well' aims to downplay attack

DUBAI, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Iranian state television said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump tried to downplay damage caused by Iran’s missile attacks on U.S. targets in Iraq by tweeting that “all is well”.

Iran launched missile attacks on U.S.-led forces in Iraq in the early hours of Wednesday in retaliation for the U.S. drone strike that killed Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani, raising fears of a wider war in the Middle East. (Writing by Parisa Hafezi; Editing by Tom Hogue)
