The United States is likely just weeks away from starting the withdrawal of ground troops from Syria ordered by President Donald Trump, the top US commander overseeing American forces in the Middle East stated on Sunday, as the US military has already started withdrawing equipment from the war-torn country.
According to Fars News Agancy, US Army General Joseph Votel, head of the US Central Command, cautioned that the exact timing would depend on the situation in Syria, where Washington-backed fighters have launched a final assault against Daesh enclaves near the Iraqi border, Middle East News reported.
Asked whether the withdrawal of America’s more than 2,000 troops would begin in days or weeks, Votel said, “Probably weeks. But again, it will all be driven by the situation on the ground.”
“In terms of the withdrawal ... I think we’re right on track with where we wanted to be,” Votel told reporters traveling with him during a trip to the Middle East, adding, “Moving people is easier than moving equipment and so what we’re trying to do right now is again (to) kind of clear out those materials, that equipment, that we do not need.”
