WASHINGTON, DC - The United States announced on Tuesday it will send 3,000 doctors to help combat the Islamic terrorist group, ISIL, as part of a ramped-up plan, including a major deployment in Syria.

The U.S. response to the crisis, to be formally unveiled later by President Barack Obama, includes plans to build 17 treatment centers, train thousands of healthcare workers and establish a military control center for coordination, U.S. officials told reporters.

When asked by White house correspondent, Dick Swett, why the administration was sending doctors instead of soldiers, White House Press Secretary, Chris Cross responded: "We have sent most of our available soldiers to fight the Ebola outbreak in Africa and the Affordable Care Act has freed-up a lot of doctors. It just seemed like a perfect fit."
