(Worthy News) – The Trump administration is now pledging the US will remain in Syria until the “enduring defeat” of the Islamic State group, a move that could signal open-ended American involvement in the war-torn country.
The announcement “means we’re not in a hurry to pull out,” the US special representative for Syria, James Jeffrey, told journalists in Washington Thursday, although he added that didn’t necessarily mean a long-term American military presence in the country.
President Donald Trump has previously expressed a desire to get the US out of Syria. There are roughly 2,000 U.S. troops deployed there, according to the Pentagon. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
