With the defeat of ISIS in Iraq, AFCENT transitioned its focus in OIR and Afghanistan.
The Coalition focus in Iraq has shifted to a Train, Advise and Assist mission, including the new Coalition Aviation Advisory and Training Team.
Defeating ISIS allowed AFCENT to reallocate airpower to Afghanistan. However, sufficient airpower will be maintained to prevent a resurgence of ISIS and defeat any enemy that threatens Coalition or partner forces.
