The US pentagon has issued a plan for the upcoming attack on ISIS’ capital of Raqqa in Syria.
According to the Washington Post, the plan calls for more US military participation, including increased Special Operations forces, helicopters, artillery and arms supplies.
US troops will not be involved in ground combat yet, however, the plan proposes easing some of the restrictions put by the Obama administration on US participation in Syria.
The plan proposes increasing the 500 US advisers currently working with Syrian Democratic Forces.
US President Donald Trump has previously vowed to “extinguish” terrorism organizations like ISIS. He had asked Pentagon to come up with a new plan to prepare for the assault on Raqqa.
