[size=45]The commander of the US Central Command, General Frank McKenzie, said that Washington would keep the current 2,500 troops in Iraq, warning of an increase in terrorist attacks.[/size]
[size=45]McKenzie said in an interview with the Associated Press that "despite the shift in the role of US forces in Iraq to a non-combat role, they will continue to provide air support and other military assistance in Iraq's fight against ISIS," considering that "the escalation of violence by militias Iran-backed attacks on US and Iraqi forces may continue this month.”[/size]
[size=45]And he considered that "these militias want all American forces to leave Iraq... but we would not leave, which may provoke a response as we approach the end of the month," noting that "we withdrew from the bases that we did not need, and made it difficult to reach us." But the Iraqis still want us to be there and to participate.. as long as they want to, and we can mutually agree, we will be there.”[/size]
[size=45]McKenzie believed that "ISIS fighters will continue to pose a threat in Iraq and that the organization will continue to reconstitute itself, perhaps under a different name," noting that "the key to the solution will be to ensure that the organization is unable to integrate with other elements around the world and becomes more powerful and dangerous." “.[/size]
[size=45]In total, McKenzie announced that “the presence of US forces throughout the Middle East has decreased significantly since last year,” explaining that “this presence has peaked amid tensions with Iran at 80,000 personnel.”[/size]
[size=45]He stressed that "it is important to work with our partners in the region," expressing concern over "Iran's development of ballistic and cruise missiles, as well as armed drones.[/size]
