United States President Donald Trump has ordered the deployment of additional troops in the Middle East to deter alleged threat from Iran. This will take the total number of US armed forces in Saudi Arabia to 3,000.

Mr. Trump told the Congressional leadership in a letter yesterday that Iran continues to pose a threat in the region through various activities, including the attack on oil and natural gas facilities.

Additional forces ordered for deployment in Saudi Arabia include radar and missile systems, an air expeditionary wing and two fighter squadrons.

The first of these additional forces have arrived and the remaining forces will arrive in the coming weeks
