The Pentagon announced the sending of additional American troops to the Middle East

The United States has deployed about 900 more troops to the Middle East, not counting the forces that have already arrived in the region. As the Pentagon explained, the newly arrived military personnel will not be stationed in Israel, but refused to specify their new locations.

Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder confirmed at a regular briefing for journalists that the United States has transferred about 900 more American troops to the Middle East, mainly from the crews of missile defense systems. According to him, they will be located on the territory of states neighboring Israel, but declined to name them.



I can confirm that since our initial deployment announcement, approximately 900 additional troops have been deployed or are currently being deployed to the US Central Command area of ​​responsibility (...) I can confirm that they will not be traveling to Israel

- added the general.

As Ryder clarified, all military personnel are being transferred from military bases located in the continental United States, and not from Europe or Asia.

Earlier, the Pentagon announced the transfer of additional missile defense systems to the Middle East to cover the American coalition forces deployed in the region, and at the same time Israel. We were talking about the THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) battery and Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems. According to reports, the THAAD battery will be deployed in Saudi Arabia, and Patriot complexes in Kuwait, Jordan, Iraq, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. This means that additional military contingent of the US Army will go to these countries.

    The US has deployed about 900 more troops to the Middle East.
    Sometimes you wonder if there are still troops left in the United States itself if they have scattered them across 600-800 bases and facilities around the world?
    I can confirm that they will not go to Israel
    Who knows who knows? American special forces are already apparently on Israeli territory and, according to some unverified reports, have already suffered losses.

      Why, if they have satellites above and below, and rivers on the sides?)

    Bibi turned out to be a cowardly warrior.

    And just yesterday, how hysterical, how hysterical: “We will turn the city of evil into a city of ruins.”
    He called on residents of the Gaza Strip to leave the area immediately as the IDF would "use all its might" to raze the city.

    Today.
    Netanyahu refused to sign the order to invade Gaza

    Israel's prime minister wants unanimous consent from the emergency government for the war plan against Hamas, fearing blame if he makes a mistake. At the same time, 80% of Israelis already consider him responsible for the militant invasion on October 7

    The Israeli army has developed a final plan for the ground operation in the Gaza Strip, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused to sign it, angering senior officers.

    As if in anger the military and noisy Jews would not bury Bibi.

    Hamas rules.

    But Yelensky also needs “warriors of light”, otherwise because of them the offensive would not work...
    And so...we wish them to become heroes. Posthumously, of course.
    You can’t stop - if you don’t even help your “beloved ally,” what will the not-so-loved ones, or candidates for ally, think? That's it...

    Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Di Silva said that what is happening in Palestine is not war, but genocide of the Palestinian people.

    This means that the Americans indirectly (900 American military personnel, mainly from the crews of missile defense systems) and directly (a mixed special forces group was destroyed in Gaza) take part in this genocide.

    Iran readiness number 1. This whole gang is not surrendering for the sake of Palestine. The forces are too large. The navies of different countries no longer fit there, even one salvo/launch will raze Palestine to the ground. There was information that instructors for the IDF for storming Hamas fortifications arrived ... from Ukraine .
