US to deploy more troops to Afghanistan

  • The US Army will be deploying hundreds of soldiers to the southern Afghan province of Helmand, where the government forces have been pushed by Taliban militants. The deployment is considered to be the largest one outside major bases in Afghanistan since the end of the NATO combat mission in 2014. The US Special Operation forces have been drawn into the fighting in Helmand as critical districts have been threatened by Taliban radicals.
