The latest military campaign in Afghanistan will most likely lead to “continued American casualties” as the U.S. takes a “new approach” in the troubled region, a top official at the Pentagon said Thursday.

Speaking at a press briefing, Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Pentagon’s Joint Staff, told reporters that the Pentagon is sending more U.S. troops closer to the frontlines as they advise the Afghan troops in charge of airstrikes.

But he warned of the risk with this latest approach.

“Americans are at risk and unfortunately there’re probably going to be continued American casualties in this campaign,” McKenzie said.
