USA: Incoming weeks United States will withdraw its military from Syria
The United States will depart about 1000 additional troops from Syria over the subsequent few weeks, between the continuing military action by Turkey on the Kurdish authorities.
The transit indicates that Washington will have virtually pulled out all its troops from Syria within weeks, omitting behind a small garrison at Al Tanf positioned near the border with Jordan, USA Today stated, quoting a US administrator who spoke on the situation of anonymity.
USA President Trump had initially requested a withdrawal of 50 US troops from the frontier separating Turkey and Syria amid the possibility that a Turkish attack was expected.
The motility cleared the way for a Turkish army invasion into a northern Syria frontier area pointed at rooting out the Kurdish forces that had held the key American-allied area force helping to wrest province from the Islamic State.
President Trump has been scrutinized for his decisiveness to pull back troops, with even Republican legislators sternly condemning the choice as a betrayal of the Kurds and a tricky blunder that will decrease American credibility and transpose profits against ISIS.
