White House Says It Will Keep 200 Troops in Syria

Instead of withdrawing all U.S. military forces from Syria, the White House says it now plans to leave a small number of troops in the country for "peacekeeping" reasons.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday that  about 200 troops  will stay "for a period of time." Back in December, the Trump administration announced its plans to remove all of the roughly 2,000 U.S. troops that were stationed in Syria.

The U.S.-led military coalition in Syria  began that withdrawal process  in January by moving some equipment out of the area.

The decision wasn't exactly popular with defense officials.

It's at least part of what prompted former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to  submit his resignation .

And the top U.S. commander in the Middle East has warned that U.S. troops are needed in the region to  continue the fight  against ISIS.

The White House's announcement on Thursday came one day after  The Washington Post reported  that European countries were resistant to the idea of keeping their forces in Syria if the U.S. pulled all its troops.

Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
