The United States is sending troops and missile installations to Saudi Arabia to strengthen air defense. President Donald Trump introduces this measure following last Saturday’s drone attacks at oil facilities in Saudi Arabia.
According to the Pentagon, it is a limited deployment of troops that is primarily intended to protect the oil state. How large the force that is sent out is, remains unclear.
Trump holds Iran responsible for the attacks, even though Houthi rebels from Yemen have claimed them.
