In December, US President Donald Trump declared victory over the Daesh* terrorist group and said he would withdraw some 2,000 US troops who are currently deployed in the Middle Eastern country.

Around 600 US soldiers arrived at Syrian military bases located to the east of the Euphrates, Turkey’s Anadolu news agency reported on Monday.

The US servicemen are now located at bases in Aleppo province, including in the Sarin region, as these are expected to become the key points where the US troops will be withdrawing from the war-torn state, Anadolu specified.
