US troops begin to withdraw from Syria, report says

‘We Don’t Take Orders From Bolton’: Pentagon Plans Syria Withdrawal

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said he will carry out the long-planned offensive against the YPG, regardless of the USA withdrawal pace.

Hours earlier, Colonel Sean Ryan, spokesman for the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group, said "the process of our deliberate withdrawal from Syria" has started.

His announcement, which came after a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, was criticised even within his own camp and is already having major repercussions on the almost eight-year-old conflict. These include troops to provide additional security.

Either Turkey gave us some guarantees without a meeting, or the Kurds in Syria just found out how mercurial American support can be. Russia, the Syrian government's most vital ally, would be happy to see the USA pull out entirely of the war-torn country, where it has military bases and a significant troop presence.

A female healthcare worker who was kidnapped by the PKK terrorist group in June 2013 and was taken to several places including Syria where she received medical education from foreigners revealed the frightful conditions women face in the terror group's camps after surrendering to Turkish security forces. "However, we will confirm that there has been no redeployment of military personnel from Syria to date".

He made the announcement in an interview during a regional tour aimed at reassuring United States allies after President Donald Trump's shock decision to withdraw all American troops from Syria, which sparked concerns that Iran's influence could grow.

The United States military on Friday began moving non-essential gear out of Syria, but will not withdraw troops immediately, AFP reported, citing American defense officials. He said it would take 35,000 to 40,000 local forces in northeastern Syria to maintain security, but only about 20 per cent had been trained.




She also confessed that the terrorist organization forcefully recruited underage children and sent them to fight against Turkish soldiers during the Operation Olive Branch.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo pushed back on reports the administration was contradicting itself Thursday on a trip to Cairo, Egypt, saying "there's no contradiction whatsoever".

The White House has not yet publicly altered it's most recent criteria, those announced by Bolton a week ago: that ISIS must be defeated and the Kurdish forces' security guaranteed before the American troops all come out.

"Let me be clear: America will not retreat until the terror fight is over", Pompeo said.

The distinctive feature of the US military campaign in Syria is its partnership with the Kurds and Arabs who were willing to act as American proxies by fighting the Islamic State group without USA troops having to take the lead combat role.

With the backing of Russian Federation and Iran, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has regained much of the territory lost to rebel groups, and his forces are now pressing eastward to areas controlled by the SDF. He has, however, asserted that the US must bring an end to the Mideast wars that began after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.
