A US administration official told CNN that US military commanders in the region and those responsible for operations against Da'ash have been informed of the decision to withdraw from Syria in the past 24 hours only.
“The military commanders are currently reviewing the necessary plans for the rapid withdrawal orders they have been informed of,” the official said, quoting the unnamed official.
The official pointed out that “these plans are supposed to be ready at the end of this month.”
He revealed that the full withdrawal of US troops from Syria could take four months, for reasons related to the need to “focus on protecting the remaining troops on the ground upon withdrawal.”
White House spokeswoman Dana White, said after the announcement of the withdrawal decision: “We have begun the process of returning US troops home from Syria, and we move to the next stage of our campaign,” stressing that the coalition “liberated the territory controlled by the organization, but the campaign against him Is over. “
