The United States announced Thursday the deployment of 200 troops as well as Patriot missiles to Saudi Arabia to help the country's defense in the wake of last month's attacks on oil installations blamed on Iran.
The Defense Department said the deployment would involve one battery of the surface-to-air missiles, along with four Sentinel radars used for air and missile defense systems.
