Pentagon Begins Trump’s Syria Withdrawal With Timeline Uncertain

The U.S. has begun to withdraw equipment from Syria as questions about President Donald Trump's timeline and strategy for pulling troops from the eight-year conflict there continue to fuel confusion.

U.S. troops aren't yet being withdrawn from Syria but equipment is, according to a Pentagon official who asked not to be identified. The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which closely tracks developments in the civil war, said the withdrawal began on Thursday, with a convoy of about 10 armored vehicles and some trucks moving out of Rmeilan in Syria and relocating to Iraq. The U.S. has about 2,000 troops in the country.
