Trump Orders Full Withdrawal Of US Troops From Syria

President Donald Trump has ordered the withdraw of all United States troops in Syria.

A US official made the disclosure on Wednesday, after President Donald Trump claimed America has “defeated ISIS” in the war-ravaged country.

The stunning move will have extraordinary geopolitical ramifications — and plunges into uncertainty the fate of US-backed Kurdish fighters who have been tackling Islamic State jihadists, hundreds of whom remain in Syria.

“We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency,” the Republican leader tweeted.

The US official told AFP that Trump’s decision was finalized Tuesday.

“Full withdrawal, all means all,” the official said when asked if the troops would be pulled from across all of Syria.

Currently, about 2,000 US forces are in Syria, most of them on a train-and-advise mission to support local forces fighting IS.
