“To prevent further escalation, Saudi Arabia has requested international assistance to protect the kingdom’s critical infrastructure, and the United Arab Emirates has also requested assistance,” said Pentagon chief Mark Esper.

After attacks on Saudi oil facilities, Pentagon chief Mark Esper announced Friday (September 20th) that reinforcements will be sent to the Gulf region. Recalling the June destruction of an American drone by Iranian forces, the US Defense Minister said the Sept. 14 attack “represents a dramatic escalation of Iranian aggression.”

“To prevent further escalation, Saudi Arabia has requested international assistance to protect the kingdom’s critical infrastructure, and the United Arab Emirates has also requested assistance,” Esper said. “In response to requests from the kingdoms, the president has approved the deployment of US forces, which will be defensive by nature, and primarily focused on the air force and missile defense,” he added.

The exact number of troops and the type of equipment sent in reinforcements have not yet been decided. But it will be a “moderate” deployment, which will not be counted in thousands, said the US Chief of Staff, General Joe Dunford.

The leader of the Revolutionary Guards, the Iranian ideological army, reacted strongly on Saturday. “Whoever wants his land to become the main battlefield, go ahead,” Major General Hossein Salami told a news conference in Tehran. “We will never allow a war to encroach on the territory of Iran,” he warned.
