US to send 200 more troops to Syria to fight IS

Washington: The Pentagon said on Saturday the US would deploy about 200 additional troops to Syria in the military campaign against the Islamic State (IS).

According to a Pentagon statement, the additional US troops would include special operations forces, trainers, advisers and explosive ordinance disposal teams, Xinhua news agency reported.

US Defense Secretary Ash Carter made the announcement during his speech in the Gulf state of Bahrain, said the statement.

"These uniquely skilled operators will join the 300 US special operations forces already in Syria, to continue organising, training, equipping and otherwise enabling capable, motivated, local forces to take the fight to IS," the statement quoted Carter as saying.
