President Barack Obama says US is not putting its troops on the front lines in syria

United states President Barack Obama has said the US is not putting its troops on the front lines in Syria to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant -ISIL, despite his decision to deploy special operations troops on the ground.

In his first comments since the deployment was announced last week, Obama said it was merely an extension of what the US was already doing.

The president said the US troops will not be fighting like they did in Iraq with battalions and occupations, adding that battling that way was not the solution to the problem.
