Washington, DC - Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) released the following statement after Iran launched missiles at the Ain al-Asad air base in Iraq that was housing members of the United States military:

"I am closely monitoring the situation developing in Iraq. While reports at this point are saying there are no casualties, I am continuing to pray for the safety of our troops fighting overseas.

As our defense secretary stated, America does not seek war but we are prepared to finish one. Our armed forces are the best trained in the world and we must remain united behind them. My full support is with the men and women who are on the front lines."
