4,000 more US troops to be sent to Afghanistan - report | 16 June 2017 | Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis is reportedly set to announce an increase of about 4,000 US troops in Afghanistan. Most of the US boots on the ground will train or advise Afghan forces, but some will battle both a resurgent Taliban and Islamic State. The Associated Press reported Thursday evening that the Pentagon will deploy nearly 4,000 more US troops to Afghanistan, based on information from an unnamed administration official. The Trump administration official told AP that an official announcement may come next week.
