Pentagon to send '1,000 new troops and drones' to Afghanistan

Pentagon to send '1,000 new troops and drones' to Afghanistan | 12 Jan 2018 | The Pentagon intends to deploy an estimated 1,000 new combat advisers to Afghanistan as part of the Trump administration's planned troop surge, according to reports. As early as February, members of an Army security-force assistance brigade from Fort Benning, Georgia, will be sent to work as combat advisers to Afghan National Security Forces. Their deployment will bring the number of American personnel in the country to about 14,000. US military officials told the Wall Street Journal the Pentagon hopes to dramatically increase the American military presence in Afghanistan in time for spring, when the "fighting season" begins.
