    U.S starts withdrawing troops from Syria

    U.S.-led military coalition in Syria spokesman, Col. Sean Ryan, has confirmed that that they had begun the process of withdrawing troops from Syria.

    In a statement, he said that the coalition fighting the Islamic State group, the U.S. started “the process of our deliberate withdrawal from Syria”.

    Ryan said: “Out of concern for operational security, we will not discuss specific timelines, locations or troops movements.”

    The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the conflict in Syria through a network of activists on the ground, said the withdrawal began Thursday night.

    It said a convoy of about 10 armored vehicles, in addition to some trucks, pulled out from Syria’s northeastern town of Rmeilan into Iraq.
