Iran retaliated on Tuesday evening, launching a barrage of 12 missiles at a U.S. military base in Iraq.
In an attempt to proclaim victory, Iran’s Etemad Online news network released a photo of the aftermath of the strike, according to Middle Eastern journalist Heshmat Alavi.
However, some internet sleuths discovered that the photo wasn’t taken in the last few hours. In fact, it wasn’t even taken a few years ago — it was a photo from a photographer’s photo album early in 2003.

President Trump is expected to address the nation regarding these latest strikes on Wednesday. It is still unclear whether there are any U.S. casualties at the base.
