The US is not withdrawing all troops from Syria, but moving those in the North of the country. The White House stated.
According to the representative of the American administration, we are talking about 50 soldiers who will remain in the Arab Republic but will be transferred to other bases in the country.
At the same time, US President Donald Trump warned Turkey about the inadmissibility of strikes on US troops or Washington’s allies in Syria. He also said about 50 soldiers who are in the zone of military operations in Ankara. “I said to Erdogan,” Don’t hurt any of our people or face big problems,” he said.
On October 7, it became known that the United States refused to support Turkey’s military operation in Syria. According to trump, it’s time to get out of these “ridiculous and endless” wars. Now Turkey, Europe, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia, and the Kurds have to cope with this situation and decide for themselves what they want to do with the captive militants of the terrorist organization “Islamic state,” he said.
On the night of October 8, Turkish air force Fighters fired at the Samalka border checkpoint in northeastern Syria. During the shelling of the object controlled by the Arab-Kurdish units of the “Syrian democratic forces,” two bridges were destroyed. There were no casualties in the attack.
