Anbar province was mentioned as one specific location where the troops will be active. Anbar has been the seen of fierce fighting and extreme acts of brutality committed by IS forces in recent weeks.

U.S. Central Command is also set to establish centers from which to train 12 Iraqi military brigades. Nine of these brigades are to come from the Iraqi army while three are to come from Kurdish security forces.
