CARL AZUZ, cnn 10 ANCHOR: Is a heated stand-off between the United States and Iran starting to cool off? That's the first topic we're talking about today on cnn 10. I'm Carl Azuz always glad to have you watching. Throughout this week we've been following the back and forth attacks between America and Iran that have been taking place in Iraq which is Iran's western neighbor. On Wednesday, Iran launched more than 12 missiles at two different military bases in Iraq where American troops were staying. The attack came within days of the U.S. air strike that killed a top Iranian general in Iraq. Shortly after the Iranian missiles were launched, U.S. President Donald Trump said all is well and he made a statement about the attacks late Wednesday morning.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We suffered no casualties. All of our soldiers are safe and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases. Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.

 AZUZ: The American leader also said he'd asked U.S. allies to get more involved in the Middle East and that the U.S. would further punish Iran's economy through economic sanctions. But he also suggested that if Iran quits trying to build nuclear weapons and supporting terrorism, the U.S. wanted it to have a prosperous future in harmony with other countries. Iranian officials also spoke out on Wednesday. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said the U.S. was given a slap in the face and President Hassan Rouhani said, quote, "if America commit's a crime she must know that we will act decisively as we have already shown."
But as far as Iran's missile attack goes, some officials from the Trump Administration say Iran intentionally avoided hitting areas where American troops were concentrated, suggesting Iran might have wanted to send a message but not actually trigger a U.S. military response. So it's possible that both sides here are looking for ways to calm things down. All of this coincided with a rollercoaster ride for global oil prices. In the hours after the Iranian missile attack, they jumped up to more than $65 per barrel. After President Trump's remarks, they dropped back down to below $60. It shows you how events in an oil rich region can directly impact oil markets.
