The United States has resumed Surveillance Flights over Niger after they were interrupted by a military coup in July. The Pentagon confirmed that these flights were conducted to protect their forces. However, other military operations, such as training and anti-terrorist cooperation with Nigerien forces, remain frozen. The US has approximately 1,100 soldiers stationed in Niger to combat jihadist groups in the region. As a precaution, the Pentagon is repositioning some troops from the capital to an air base further north.
