US to Send More Troops to the Middle East

nypost.com

US President Donald Trump has said he will send about 1,500 additional troops to the Middle East amid heightened tensions with rival Iran, Al Jazeera reports. 

Speaking to reporters on the White House lawn shortly before departing for a trip to Japan on Friday, Trump said the purpose of this deployment is "mostly protective", and is meant to increase the security of forces already in the region.

"We want to have protection in the Middle East. We're going to be sending a relatively small number of troops," Trump said.

"Right now, I don't think Iran wants to fight. And I certainly don't think they want to fight with us," he added.
