Rasa - US servicemen have not left the Northeastern Syrian town of Manbij, and they continue patrolling its streets, eyewitnesses said.

RNA - "They were coming from Al-Ayoun district located near the positions of the Turkey-backed Syrian opposition," an eyewitness told Sputnik.

He added that the US military was also conducting foot patrol of Manbij's streets and markets, and they were escorted by scores of Syrian Democratic Forces' militants.

Earlier in the day, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Sputnik that it would not be easy to solve the problem of the illegal presence of US troops in Syria, stressing that time would show what the announcement of withdrawal actually results in.

Recently US President Donald Trump announced that the US forces would be pulled out from Syria since the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group had been defeated there. According to US officials, the pull-out of the US troops, with their number exceeding 2,000, will take from 60 to 100 days.
