Saudi Arabia approves deployment of more US troops

Riyadh (Web Desk): Saudi Arabia’s king and crown prince have approved the deployment of more US troops and equipment.


The move comes after an attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities in September.

Saudi State news agency SPA quoted defence ministry saying that the decision has been taken to maintain regional security and face any attempts that threaten global economy.

Earlier, United States announced a deployment of about 3,000 troops to the Gulf state, including fighter squadrons, an air expeditionary wing and air defense personnel to enhance defence of Saudi Arabia.
