Iraqi general: US to pull troops from Syria via Erbil

Iraq's Major General Yahya Rasul said on Wednesday that the United States will use the territory of northern Iraq to withdraw from Syria.

The troops will first arrive in Erbil, the capital of the Kurdistan Regional Government, before moving on, he added, as quoted by the Anadolu Agency. The area is not in control of the central government in Baghdad.

Washington is yet to announce the map of withdrawal. In December, US President Donald Trump said he would end American military presence in Syria after, in his view, defeating ISIS.
