In Iraq, two American military bases are hit by dozens of airstrikes, as Iran responds to the killing of its top general, who was assassinated in a US drone strike last week. However, Tehran says it's not looking for a war with Washington. 'All is well' - that's how Donald Trump responds to the attacks, saying he will give more details later. He had previously threatened to destroy multiple Iranian sites, including cultural, if Iran retaliated in anyway.  A Ukrainian passenger plane has crashed near Tehran airport. The Ukrainian Interior Ministry says all 176 people on board were killed. Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, officially launch the Turk-Stream natural gas pipeline. The project will supply the Turkish and EU markets with Russian gas.
