The Pentagon is set to strengthen its campaign against the Islamic State in the country after the Trump administration laid out its new strategy in Afghanistan.
Military officials said they’ll expand the use of drones and send roughly 1,000 advisers to Afghanistan.
The Pentagon also expects to use more helicopters, ground vehicles and artillery as part of its plan.
This comes after President Trump approved the deployment of around 4,000 additional troops to Afghanistan.
