The Pentagon is considering a request to send 5,000 additional US troops to the Middle East, Reutersreported on Wednesday night, citing two US officials. 


The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the request had been made by US Central Command. 

They added that it was not clear whether the Pentagon would approve the request. 

The Pentagon regularly receives, and declines, requests from combatant commands throughout the world for additional resources.

One of the officials said the requested troops would be defensive in nature.
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared on Wednesday that Iran's youth will witness the demise of Israel and American civilization.

Calling American culture "degenerate”, he went on to say America and Israel are the "enemies of humanity."
