What is the US plan for Syria? I Inside Story



The White House is sending mixed messages about the future of America’s role in Syria.
President Donald Trump announced on Monday that US soldiers would pull out of northeastern Syria.
This would allow Turkey to launch a military operation against Kurdish fighters, which it considers to be terrorists.
A White House official later contradicted the president by saying American troops are only being redeployed, rather than withdrawn.
Syrian Kurds described Trump’s decision as a ‘stab in the back’ after they helped the United States defeat ISIL.
Even some of the president’s supporters condemned the decision.
So, what are the risks of a military operation in nothern Syria?
And what will happen to the thousands of ISIL fighters held by Kurdish forces?

  23. I was a hard-core Trump supporter…until yesterday. He has made a fool of himself, and brought shame down on our country. When he said "We've captured ISIS", thats a lie. The Kurds were the ones who did the heavy lifting and dying to defeat ISIS. Trump's absurd threat to decimate the Turkish economy. The entire Trump presidency is teetering on disaster.
