US troops withdraw from Syria, station at Mosul Dam

Sources have told The Baghdad Post that US forces that withdrew from Syria are currently stationed at the Mosul Dam and presidential palaces.

The first US military ground equipment has been withdrawn from Syria in recent days, signaling the beginning of the drawdown ordered by President Donald Trump.

Trump last month claimed ISIS had been defeated in Syria and said all US troops were “coming back now.”

But in the weeks since he gave the order, and the Pentagon began to implement it, Trump himself and members of his administration have delivered mixed messages about when a troop withdrawal may actually occur.

Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton on Sunday announced conditions for a withdrawal that appeared to delay it indefinitely.

Adding to the confusion, a military spokesman said Friday the US had already begun “the process of our deliberate withdrawal” from Syria.
