U.S. Said To Deploy Troops To Syria To Battle ISIS/ISIL

U.S. media are reporting that a couple hundred Marines have deployed into Syria with heavy artillery guns in preparation for the fight to oust the Islamic State group from its self-declared headquarters in Raqqa.

The Washington Post and Associated Press reported the deployment on March 8, which AP said is temporary.

The Marines are said to be pre-positioning artillery and howitzers to support local Syrian forces in their fight to retake the city.

Previously, several hundred U.S. Special Operations troops have advised local forces in Syria, but the Pentagon has mostly shied away from using conventional forces there.

Meanwhile, Reuters is reporting that the administration is considering deploying up to 1,000 U.S. soldiers in Kuwait to serve as a reserve force in a bid to accelerate the battle against IS in Syria and Iraq.
