CENTCOM confirms deploying new Patriot missiles to Iraq

US Central Command (CENTCOM) has confirmed the deployment of new Patriot missile systems to Iraq amid calls for the withdrawal of American troops from the Arab country.

In a statement on Thursday, Bill Urban, spokesman for CENTCOM confirmed the deployment, saying the US military would not provide further status updates on its ongoing movement of Patriot missile systems into Iraq for security reasons.

“The US military continues to coordinate the effort with its Iraqi partners,” he said, adding, "The Iraqi Government is well aware of our collective need for air defense protection of service members within Iraq".

Also, Pentagon spokesman Commander Sean Robertson said Thursday that "for operational security reasons, we are not providing status updates as those systems come online."
