On Thursday, a military source from the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, told North-Press that two new batches of United States troops have arrived at Remailan Base, in the far north-east of Syria, by two military aircraft on Tuesday.
However, the source did not reveal the exact number of soldiers, adding; "This comes in the context of increasing the U.S. support for the Syrian Democratic Forces SDF in northeastern Syria and to support stability in the region.”
The U.S. step comes after the meeting of the U.S. Special Envoy for Syria Engagement, Ambassador James Jeffrey with the SDF Commander-in-Chief, General Mazloum Abdi two days ago.
A diplomatic source from the Global Coalition told North-Press that the visit was aimed at reaffirming the increased efforts in the region to fight the terrorist group of ISIS, and intensifying efforts to increase security and stability in northeastern Syria.
Last November, the U.S. Secretary of Defense, Mark Esper said that the United States would work to redeploy its troops in northeastern Syria, after the U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the American forces from some parts of northern Syria.
President Trump said, "The United States continues to support the SDF, and we are still partners with the SDF and we are continuing to provide assistance for them."
