U.S.-led coalition withdrawing equipment from Syria

U.S.-led coalition withdrawing equipment from SyriaPresident Donald Trump’s announcement last month that he had decided to withdraw the 2,000 U.S. troops there stunned allies who have joined Washington in the battle against Islamic State militants in Syria. Senior U.S. officials were shocked too, among them Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who quit in protest. U.S. Colonel Sean Ryan, a coalition spokesman, said the coalition “has begun the process of our deliberate withdrawal from Syria.” “Out of concern for operational security, we will not discuss specific timelines, locations or troop movements,” Ryan said.
