US to send 750 troops to Middle East after embassy attack in Baghdad

The US will send 750 troops to the Middle East ’in response to recent events in Iraq,’ Defense Secretary Mark Esper said. The troops are from the rapid response unit of the 82nd Airborne Division. A rapid response team of Marines has already been flown into Baghdad to reinforce the US embassy. Additionally, 4,000 US troops have been put on standby by the Pentagon for deployment to Kuwait.
