The Hill: US planning to leave 1K troops in Syria: report

The U.S. military is reportedly making plans to keep almost 1,000 troops in Syria, several months after President Trump said he was removing all U.S. forces from the country.

Citing U.S. officials, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that the Trump administration plans to continue supporting Kurdish fighters in Syria.

The officials reportedly added that the plan could keep as many as 1,000 forces across the country, but said the specific number of troops that will remain is still being determined.

The U.S. will start withdrawing hundreds of troops after it defeats the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to the Journal.
