BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The U.S. began withdrawing some of their military personnel and hardware in northern Syria this morning, the AFP News Agency reported.
“I can confirm the movement of equipment from Syria. For security reasons, I am not going to provide further details at this time”, an unnamed U.S. official was quoted as saying by AFP news agency this morning.
The remarks came after CNN cited a Trump administration official familiar with the situation as saying that “some [US] cargo has already moved” from Syria.
This is the second time in the last two weeks that the U.S. military has withdrawn troops and hardware from one of their bases in Syria.
Previously, the U.S. Coalition withdrew their forces from an unnamed base in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
The U.S. Coalition troops then made their way through the Al-Hasakah Governorate to nearby Nineveh after reaching the Al-Malkiyah Crossing.
