U.S. general sees bigger role “advising and assisting” Iraqi forces

WASHINGTON, Oct 12 (Reuters) – U.S. troops will probably
need to play a bigger role “advising and assisting” Iraqi forces
on the ground in the future, the highest ranking U.S. military
officer said in an interview broadcast on Sunday.

U.S. forces have been bombing Islamic State fighters in Iraq
since August and expanded the air campaign to Syria last month.
The White House has repeatedly said it will not send ground
troops back to Iraq, where President Barack Obama withdrew U.S.
forces in 2011.
