UNITED STATES STARTS TO WITHDRAW ITS TROOPS FROM SYRIA AFTER “DEFEAT OF ISIS”

Washington / The United States has begun to withdraw its troops from Syria, where there are some 2,000 military deployed, after President Donald Trump proclaimed the defeat of the terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS).

To announce the withdrawal, the president has used his favourite social network, Twitter, where he posted a video in which he affirms the time has come for the soldiers to “come back home.”

In another tweet, Trump has declared the defeat of the radicals in Syria and has recalled that it was “the only reason for being there.”

Despite this measure, the Pentagon has advanced that it will continue to collaborate with its partners and allies in the region to defeat the jihads wherever they want them to operate.

On several occasions, Trump has repeated his priority in Syria was to eradicate the Islamic State group and has abandoned the idea of forcing a transition that forces the departure of Syrian President Bachar al-Assad.

According to the Pentagon, the radicals have only 1% of the territory which they came to dominate in 2014 when they proclaimed a caliphate in Syria and Iraq.
