Dozens Of U.S. Servicemembers Withdrew From Northeast Syria: SANA

Dozens of U.S. service members have withdrawn from northeast Syria to the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on October 10.

According to the state-run news agency, 100 U.S. troops carried in armored vehicles left the region to Kurdistan through the Semalka border crossing in the morning. The troops withdrew in two batches.

Later, a third batch consisting of ten U.S. officers and “foreign experts” withdrew from a key U.S. base near the northeastern city of Rmelan. The troops also headed towards the Kurdistan Region.

Around 1,000 U.S. troops are reportedly deployed in northeast Syria. Earlier this month, U.S. forces withdrew from the border strep with Turkey. The step allowed the Turkish military and its proxies to launch Operation Peace Spring on October 9.

The pullback didn’t affect the number of U.S. forces deployed in Syria, as the troops were redeployed in the southern part of the country’s northeastern region.

The SANA’s report has not been confirmed by the Pentagon or the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which control most of northeast Syria, so far. However, the U.S. may indeed lower the number of its troops in Syria

    Why only dozens? Why not a full withdraw and they can take all their ISIS buddies back to the states and train them for the next mission! The whole world knows this one failed! Big bad US stopped dead in their tracks by a few Russians stepping in to defend Syria’s Freedom!
