350 troops sent to BaghdadU.S. President Barack Obama authorized a request on Tuesday to send 350 more troops to Baghdad to protect diplomatic facilities and personnel.

In June, President Obama laid out a five-part plan on how the U.S. will deal with the situation in Iraq.

The White House said in a statement:  The President has made clear his commitment to doing whatever is required to provide the necessary security for U.S. personnel and facilities around the world.

The request he approved today will allow some previously deployed military personnel to depart Iraq, while at the same time providing a more robust, sustainable security force for our personnel and facilities in Baghdad. In addition to our efforts to protect our personnel, we will continue to support the Government of Iraq's efforts to counter ISIL, which poses a threat not only to Iraq, but to the broader Middle East and U.S. personnel and interests in the region.
