Pentagon denies news on troops reposition in Iraq

The Pentagon denied what was reported by the “NBC” network about the US military plans to reposition hundreds of troops in Iraq, mainly in Mosul and Kirkuk.

“There is no formal plan to do this,” said a US defense official.

Commander of US Central Command, Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, has announced on Friday that the US forces are deploying counter rocket Patriots in Iraq over the next few weeks, to defend against ballistic missiles fired at the American and coalition service members there.
