United States President Barack Obama is reportedly mulling deploying up to 500 more American troops to Iraq to train local forces battling the Islamic State (IS) and setting up a new training base in Anbar province.

The news came just days after Obama admitted that the U.S. lacked a “complete strategy” for helping Iraqi troops in retaking territory lost to the IS, reported the BBC.

The terror outfit recently made stunning gains in Iraq and Syria, seizing Ramadi, Palmyra and Tadmur in the span of a month.

U.S. officials said that they strongly believed that a lack of training of Iraqi forces was a major factor in the fall of Ramadi.
