World News: US to send thousands of troops to Saudi Arabia

The Pentagon said the United States will send 3,000 more troops to Saudi Arabia,
The new deployment is part of a series of what the US has described as defensive moves following the attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities last month, which rattled global energy markets and exposed major gaps in Saudi Arabia’s air defences.
