US Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said on Thursday that the Defense department was considering sending additional troops to the Middle East as a way to strengthen the protection of US troops there as tensions with Iran escalated.

“What we are looking at: is there anything we can do to strengthen the protection of troops in the Middle East? … It may involve sending additional troops,” he said.

But in remarks to reporters outside the Defense Department, Shanahan rejected reports that specific numbers of troops were under consideration at this stage.
