[Washington 20th Reuters]-US President Trump has approved an increase in US soldiers to strengthen air defense and missile defense in Saudi Arabia following an attack on oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. Revealed by the US Department of Defense.

The ministry says the increase will be modest, not thousands, and is primarily a defensive measure. The company also announced plans to accelerate the delivery of military equipment to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Esper Defense Secretary explained at the press conference, “According to a request from Saudi, the President approved the dispatch of US troops. This is a defensive measure, mainly air defense and missile defense.”

The US accuses Iran of attacks on Saudi facilities, but given the announcement of the Department of Defense, it is unlikely that the country will immediately be retaliated against Iran.
