1,700 US Army troops deploying to Iraq to ‘advise & assist’ local forces

Recommended Posts

The US Army will deploy 1,700 “highly trained” paratroopers to Iraq, from a military base in North Carolina, for “training, advising, and assisting” purposes, as the Iraqi Security Forces are trying to retake Mosul from the Islamic State.

The soldiers are going to join the US-led Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) – the codename for the American military intervention against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in both Iraq and Syria – as soon as “this winter,” the Army said in a statement Thursday.



Hmm... that's a lot of paratroopers, how many of them do they have "highly trained"?

This as well, snip from article:

The U.S. Army announced Thursday that it will deploy about 4,000 soldiers to Europe this winter to help deter possible Russian aggression.

The 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado, will help support Operation Atlantic Resolve, according to an Army press release.
