Trump says 1500 US troops deploying to Middle East for 'mostly protective' purposes | 24 May 2019 | US President Donald Trump has approved a deployment of 1,500 troops to the Middle East, apparently meant to deter what Washington calls an ongoing threat to US interests from Iran.

The deployment will happen in the coming weeks, according to a copy of the announcement obtained by the Associated Press.
