U.S. military personnel surveyed the damage to a building that was struck by Iranian missiles at Al Asad Air Base in Anbar, Iraq, Jan. 13, 2020. The Pentagon on Tuesday raised to 50 the number of U.S. service members who suffered traumatic brain injuries in the attack.

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon on Tuesday raised to 50 the number of U.S. service members who suffered traumatic brain injuries in Iran's missile strike earlier this month on an Iraqi air base, the third time the number of injuries has been increased.

The new casualty total belies President Donald Trump's initial claim that no Americans were harmed. Days after the attack, the military said 11 service members were injured. Last week, the Pentagon said that 34 U.S. service members were hurt.
