500 US troops with Kurds continue fighting ISIS in eastern Syria



Central US Command Commander Kenneth McKenzie today said that about 500 US troops in eastern Syria will continue operations against the Islamic State in the coming days and weeks.

The Islamic State has lost almost all of its territory in Syria, and US forces killed their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last month. Nevertheless, the group that once controlled a third of Syria and neighboring Iraq is still considered a threat.



President Donald Trump's administration shocked its allies in December when it announced that Washington was withdrawing all its forces from Syria. It was later reported that remaining forces would be retained in the northeastern part of the country that would focus on preventing ISIS in a possible return and in potential oilfield attacks.

“We now have about 500 U.S. troops mainly east of the Euphrates. They are stationed in the area east of Deir al Zoro to Hasaka, northeast to the far northeast of Syria,” McKenzie told reporters on the sidelines of a security summit being held in Bahrain.

“It is our intention to remain there and to work with our partners in the SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces), continuing operations against ISIS along the Euphrates Valley where such targets occasionally occur,” he added.

Turkey launched and then stopped the offensive against the YPG, a major constituent of the United States-backed SDF that helped the US defeat the Islamic State, considered by Turkey as a terrorist group linked to Kurdish militants in Turkish territory.
