Kenneth Mackenzie: We can continue building Iraq’s military capabilities in a smaller number

Baghdad-ALSharqiya, July 16: The commander of US forces in the Middle East told General Kenneth Mackenzie that the United States can continue to pressure ISIS and build military capabilities for Iraq, with fewer American forces on the ground.

McKinsey added in a press statement that the United States currently has between 5,000 and 6,000 soldiers in Iraq, noting that reducing this number will be consulted with the Iraqi government to find a solution.

McKinsey stressed that Washington's continued assistance in Iraq in its war against ISIS is a setback for Iran, considering that Tehran is trying hard to get the United States out of Iraq
