Barack Obama has requested up to 50 exceptional operations troops to Syria, US authorities declared on Friday, in an evident break of a guarantee not to put US "boots on the ground", to battle Islamic State activists in the nation.

The Pentagon has likewise been "counseling" with the Iraqi head administrator, Haider al-Abadi, to set up an uncommon operations taskforce to battle Isis "pioneers and systems" over the Syrian fringe in Iraq, a senior organization authority told the Guardian on Friday.

Yet, the White House demanded that its general system to battle Isis continued as before and said the uncommon powers troops would be organizing nearby ground strengths in the north of the nation and other non-indicated "coalition endeavors" to counter Isis as opposed to taking part in significant ground operations.

"The choice the president has made is to further increase our backing for our strengths who have gained ground against Isis," the White House representative, Josh Earnest, said at a news gathering.

The move came as ambassadors worked in Vienna to restart chats on a political move that would evacuate Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. At the exchanges with pioneers from Russia, Saudi Arabia and Iran, the US secretary of state, John Kerry, confined the troop declaration as a feature of a moving arrangement that incorporated this major strategic push to start talks that would achieve a political move in Syria.

"We are heightening our counter-Daesh battle and we are strengthening our political endeavors to end the contention," Kerry said, utilizing the Arabic acronym for Isis. "That is the reason President Obama made a declaration about going up the battle against Daesh."

The infusion of US uncommon strengths in Syria appeared inconsistent with before explanations Obama has made about not putting troops in the nation.

"I won't put American boots on the ground in Syria" Obama said in a location in September 2013.

Gotten some information about that "boots on the ground" explanation, Earnest said the quote was taken "outside of any relevant connection to the issue at hand".

"The quote that you pulled there is an altogether different circumstance," Earnest told a journalist. "He [Obama] said he was not arranged to put boots on the ground to take out the Assad administration. That was correctly the slip-up the past organization had made … to bring down Saddam Hussein."

The US military has directed tight ground missions inside Syria, for example, one in May in which extraordinary strengths executed an Islamic State leader in an attack the Pentagon said occurred in the east of the nation.

A $500m exertion in the course of the most recent two years by the United States to prepare Arab restriction powers in Syria fizzled. General Lloyd Austin, officer of US Central Command, told the Senate a month ago that it had brought about just a modest bunch of contenders effectively doing combating the jihadi armed force. "We're talking four or five," Austin said.

A huge number of US strengths are sent in neighboring Iraq – where nearby powers are likewise battling gatherings recognizing themselves as Isis – in what the White House has depicted as a preparation and counseling part. The US troops lead and help neighborhood contenders and direction airstrikes against foe positions. The Pentagon says the troops have infrequently, if at any point, took part straightforwardly in battle against Isis warriors. A week ago a US warrior partaking in an assault on a compound close to the city of Kirkuk, Iraq, to free many Iraqi detainees from bondage was slaughtered.

The adjustment in methodology in Syria agrees with Russian intercession against an assortment of revolutionary gatherings battling Assad and a choice to welcome Iran to the Vienna peace talks.

Organization sources additionally told the Guardian that the US would be upgrading military help to Jordan and Lebanon to offer their administrations some assistance with fighting Isis.

The strengths were to be bolstered by an extra arrangement of A-10 "Warthog" assault air ship and F-15 planes to Nato's Incirlik base in Turkey, authorities said.
