Trump Reverses US Policy in Syria, Endorses Turkish Military Ops

Trump Shifts US Policy in Syria, Endorses Turkish Military Ops.

The Trump administration announced the endorsement on Sunday.

The military operation will likely involve American-backed Kurdish forces.

The Turkish government considers these forces to be a terrorist organization.

Turkey will soon be moving forward with its long-planned operation into Northern Syria, White House Statement, via 'The New York Times'.

100 to 150 American troops in the region will be withdrawn.

The United States Armed Forces will not support or be involved in the operation, and United States forces, having defeated the ISIS territorial ‘Caliphate,’ will no longer be in the immediate area, White House Statement, via 'The New York Times'.

The administration's shift in policy defies State Department and Pentagon recommendations.

Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis resigned because of President Trump's order to withdraw 2,000 American troops stationed in Syria.

Kurdish officials warned that Turkish operations could endanger the tenuous stability in the region.

It called on forces to “defend our homeland from the Turkish aggression.”
