"U.S Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said the U.S. has agreed to send an additional 600 troops to Iraq, in anticipation of the major upcoming operation to retake the Islamic State-held city of Mosul. These additional troops 'will increase the number of U.S. forces in Iraq to around 5,000,' NPR's Tom Bowman told our Newscast unit. American troop levels in Iraq peaked at 170,000 in November 2007."
