50 US troops suffer brain injuries after Iranian missiles strike

 

No fewer than 50 soldiers in the US military in Iraq have been diagnosed with brain injuries following Iranian missile strike on a US base .

The Iranian missile strikes on a US base early this month is in retaliation for the US killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.

The Pentagon said 50 US soldiers suffered Traumatic Brain Injury as a result of the missiles fired at the US al-assad base in Iraq.

The latest figure is the third time the Pentagon has increased the total count of casualties suffered.

Days after the Iranian attack, the Pentagon disclosed that 11 service members were injured, then last week, the Pentagon said that 34 U.S. service members were hurt.

The Pentagon assertion dismisses US President Trump’s claims that no Americans were harmed, saying that those who had been injured only suffered ‘headaches’ and it was ‘nothing serious’.

A Pentagon spokesman, Lt. Col. Thomas Campbell, told DailyMail Tuesday, that 16 additional service members were diagnosed with traumatic brain injury and were treated at a U.S. military medical facility in Kuwait while others were treated in Iraq.

According to Lt. Col. Campbell, 31 service members have now returned to duty and are in good condition. TBI or Traumatic Brain injury is a brain dysfunction caused by an outside force, usually a violent blow to the head.

Immediate or delayed symptoms may include confusion, blurry vision and difficulty concentrating.

  7. Almost all of whatever you claim is supprisingly precise and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. This particular article truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this issue goes.

  11. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
