House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, said she is monitoring the situation in which Iran launched several missiles targeting U.S. troops in Iraq, she tweeted late Tuesday afternoon.

Pelosi said in the message:

“We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding Iran cease its violence.”

She said:

“America & world cannot afford war.”

A statement from the U.S. Department of Defense said that Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles at U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq.

The missiles targeted two Iraqi military bases at Al-Assad and Irbil. Defense department officials said they are working to assess the damage.
