3,500 More US Troops Headed to Middle East After Soleimani Killing

WASHINGTON: The U.S. military will send about 3,500 additional soldiers to the Middle East following the killing of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani less than a day earlier.

The new troops are being deployed to Iraq, Kuwait and other parts of the region, NBC reported. The deployment of one brigade of the 82nd Airborne Division — 700 of which have already been dispatched to the Middle East — are ordered to serve as a response to threats throughout the region.

But the defense officials maintain that the additional soldiers is not a direct response to Soleimani’s death, which has enraged Iran’s leadership and spurred incendiary threats of vengeance from the oil-rich Middle Eastern nation.
