President Barack Obama is expected to send an additional 100,200 U.s. troops into Afghanistan as the country fights a resurgence of the Taliban and other insurgent groups, according to his administration.
The move, expected to be announced by Friday, will send U.N. forces into the war-torn country, as well as about 4,500 Special Operations troops, to support Afghan forces and support U.n. peacekeepers.
More than 3,500 troops are in the country as advisers and advisers are training Afghan forces.
The U.f. has said the U.a.c. will be deployed on an advisory basis in the region, and will not be involved in combat.
Obama will announce a plan to expand the U.-Afghan Coalition to include the U-s in an attempt to secure a stable peace and security for Afghanistan, according an administration official.
President Donald Trump, meanwhile, is expected on Friday to announce that he has agreed to send 10,000 more troops to the country.
While the White House says the U to help fight the Taliban, it has said that the number will not include Special Operations forces.
