The Pentagon announced Thursday the deployment of 200 troops with Patriot missiles to Saudi Arabia to help with the country's defense in the wake of last months attacks on oil installations blamed on Iran.

"This deployment will augment the kingdom's air and missile defense of critical military and civilian infrastructure," Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said.
