The United States is pulling some of its anti-aircraft and missile batteries out of the Middle East, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing U.S. military officials.

The Pentagon will remove the missile systems from the region next month, according to the Journal.

Four Patriot missile systems will be pulled out of Jordan, Kuwait and Bahrain, the Journal reported, adding that the realignment step marks a shift of focus away from long-lasting conflicts in the Middle East and Afghanistan.

The military is now focused towards tensions with China and Russia, the report added, citing senior military officials.
