Pentagon approves plan for Syria troop withdrawal

The United States has approved a plan for the withdrawal of the forces stationed in Syria, a Pentagon spokesperson announced.

The Operation Inherent Resolve, the military intervention against ISIS and Syria, "has an approved framework for the withdrawal of forces from Syria, and is now engaged in executing that withdrawal," the Pentagon said in a statement, adding the "framework is conditions-based and will not subject troop withdrawal to an arbitrary timeline."

Earlier, the US President Donald Trump said the troop pullout from Syria will be done "at a proper pace."
