The US aims to pull out all troops from the territory of Syria within the next 60-100 days, the Reuters news agency informed on Wednesday.

Earlier, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced that the US started to pull out its troops from Syria. US President Donald Trump stated on Twitter that the United States have defeated ISIS (IS, the Islamic State terrorist group, outlawed in Russia – TASS) in Syria, which is the only reason for the US troops being there.

The US official confirmed that Trump made this decision on the outcomes with the talks with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The agency’s source added that the US would evacuate all State Department employees from Syria within the next 24 hours.

On Wednesday, US Department of Defense Spokesperson Dana White confirmed that the United States are pulling out their troops from Syria, adding that the US military is transitioning to the next phase of their campaign against ISIS.

“The Coalition has liberated the ISIS-held territory [in Syria], but the campaign against ISIS is not over. We have started the process of returning US troops home from Syria as we transition to the next phase of the campaign,” she noted.

Scenarios: (A) If true that all US troops will be withdrawn means that he bases the US have built (unless destroyed on their way out) will be taken over by (1) by the Kurds in N.E Syria as a last ditch stand against the Turks and their jihadi proxies; (2) the American trained FSA (unless redeployed by the US) for al-Tanf with the latter coming to some sort of agreement with the Syrian Government or take a last ditch stand against the same? (B) The Americans leave heavy weapons to the various Kurdish groups in their current existential fight against… Read more »

@FairsFair, I sure agree to You. Mostly positive IMHO. But to the Kurds it means, they have to cooperate with the central Syrian government against the Turk Sultanate or come between a hard place and a rock.

So far joining the Syrian government is the only clever decision Kurds could take right now. Every day is working against them from now on…

Believe me, it’s true. The contract has been signed between Trump and Erdogan. USA is going to keep Turkey as an ally and get a bunch of money for their removal from Syria. Money talk again. Kurds are screwed up. I don’t see how they will defend themselves from the Sultan. He already deployed over 30 thousands jihadists on the North Syrian border….

Right now I see the best thing would be Kurds and Syrian government to join. Syrian army starts Idlib offensive, Kurds with the Syrian Army help defend North borders with Turkey. Everything else is doing nothing and waiting for the jihadist Erdogs to bite Kurds really bad…

@USR. Lets hope they come to that conclusion. Both Syrian government and Kurds must make concessions that lead to a deal in a narrow time frame.

The Jihadi Sultanate across the border is poised to strike any moment.
