U.S. starts withdrawing supplies, but not troops, from Syria

United States out of Syria the first batch of military equipment, which indicates the beginning of the withdrawal of American troops from the country, reports CNN TV channel with reference to the representative of the presidential administration, which is aware of the operation. These include troops to provide additional security.

This follows a week of speculation about the process, and comes just a day after Pentagon officials said that there had been no changes to the timeline, despite John Bolton's weekend talk of making the pullout "conditional". The observatory reported that a convoy of U.S. armored vehicles was the first of the pullout, and was seen leaving the town of Rmeilan into neighboring Iraq.

Removing equipment from Syria is thought to be a way the department of defense can show progress on that order without withdrawing troops. But the peace and stability of areas US forces withdraw from "must be guaranteed", she added.

It comes after a sex abuse probe was launched after a patient in a vegetative state gave birth. The office of Arizona's governor has described the situation as "deeply troubling".

Turkey says the weapons are ultimately transferred to the PKK - designated as a terror group by the U.S., Turkey and the European Union - and used against Turkey. But in coming weeks, the contingent of about 2,000 troops is expected to depart even as the White House vows to keep pressure on the Islamic State group. US Defense Secretary James Mattis resigned soon after the announcement.

Bolton, on a visit to the region this week, said the USA pullout was conditional on defeating IS and guarantees that the Kurds would be protected. Military planners are still working on the basis that all troops will be withdrawn from Syria.

After initially tweeting about the decision to bring back USA troops "now", Trump this week said "we will be leaving at a proper pace while at the same time continuing to fight ISIS and doing all else that is prudent and necessary!" The withdrawal benefits Syrian President Bashar Assad and his worldwide backers, Russian Federation and Iran, who are primed to move into the region to fill a vacuum left behind by the Americans.

Maria Zakharova, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, said it was important for Syrian Kurds and the Syrian government to start talking to each other in light of the United States withdrawal plans.

Turkey views the US-backed YPG Syrian Kurdish militia as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has waged a 34-year insurgency in Turkey for Kurdish political and cultural rights, mostly in southeastern areas near Syria.

Since Trump's announcement, senior members of his administration including Bolton and Secretary of State Michael Pompeo have frustrated Turkey by setting more specific conditions on what Trump initially suggested would be a quick withdrawal.
