US defense department Pentagon said eleven thousand troops deploy in Afghanistan.

While more than 4,000 US troops will be sent to Afghanistan.

US defense department Pentagon said eleven thousand troops deploy in Afghanistan.

This figure came from Pentagon on an occasion when a few days ago, US President Donald Trumpp announced his strategy for Afghanistan.

President Trump has given the Pentagon more flexibility in deploying troops to war zones.

Pentagon says the number of US troops deployed in Afghanistan has been announced to increase transparency.

But Pentagon has not shown the number of American forces deployed in Iraq and Syria.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said the new number was not an increase.

But an effort to be more transparent about troop numbers.

The Pentagon did not have to count temporary forces to meet the cap of 8,400 troops set by the Obama administration.

The Pentagon is considering deploying several thousand more troops to Afghanistan to increase support for the country’s military.

In its fight against the Taliban and other insurgent groups.

US defense department Pentagon said eleven thousand troops deploy in Afghanistan.

New strategy.

The new estimate came nearly two weeks after Trump and his top cabinet and military officials decided to increase US soldiers.

And airmen in Afghanistan to put more pressure on the Taliban and other extremist groups.

Few details were provided on the new strategy, however, as Mattis said he wanted a clearer view of the actual number of US forces there.

US generals have for months been calling the situation in Afghanistan a “stalemate,” despite years of support for Afghan partners.

And an overall cost to the United States of about $1 trillion.

US troop increase would allow the US- led coalition in the country to provide more advisors.

And tactical support to strengthen the Afghan army’s efforts against the Taliban.

McKenzie said the new count an effort to more transparent.

But he said the Defense Department would not be providing much information.

On the breakdown of the US forces, so as to maintain operational security and avoid “telegraphing” US intentions to the Taliban.

The new Afghan strategy will take a page from successful US efforts over the past two years to strength Iraqi security forces.

Against the Islamic State group with better training, logistical support.

And the battlefield backup of US artillery and air strikes on enemy positions.

But in Iraq most of the action against Islamic State fighters is in dense urban settings.

While the Taliban are more spread out in the Afghan countryside, a battle situation Mattis has characterized as more like Vietnam.
