President Donald Trump will deliver an address from the White House Wednesday morning after Iran fired more than a dozen missiles at two airbases in Iraq housing U.S. troops.

Trump is expected to address the nation at 11:00 a.m. Watch the live report below:

The retaliatory move is another dangerous escalation that could draw the region deeper into turmoil, despite insistence by Washington and Tehran that neither side wants war. U.S. and Iraqi officials said there were no casualties among their forces.

CNN reports that there were no casualties following the attack.

Trump tweeted Tuesday evening that "all is well" following the attack.

"All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now," Trump said. "So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning."
