The New York Times quoted administration officials as saying that President Donald Trump had given the US military four months to withdraw troops from Syria.
Trump said earlier that US troops would carry out a slow withdrawal from Syria.
Reports from Washington said the US president's decision to set a date for the withdrawal and slow down of troops came after Trump contacts with some of Washington's influential parties.
The decision also came after Trump heard his visit to US troops in Iraq to military leaders who expressed concern about the impact of the acceleration of the withdrawal of the withdrawal inside Iraq in the fight against a preacher, after the US president set 30 days for the withdrawal of these forces.
The reports referred to another factor of President Trump's original decision: the implementation of his electoral promise to withdraw troops from Syria.
Trump said in a tweet on Monday that he was the only person who could talk about the return of these troops after achieving a major victory. "If anyone else did what he did in Syria, which was full of the chaos of state organization when he became president, he would become a national hero."
Trump pointed out that Daqash has often been removed and that American forces will slowly return home to join their families, noting that the battle with the remnants of a fugitive will continue.
The US president surprised even his allies when he announced on December 19 that he would withdraw the US troops deployed in Syria, numbering about a thousand troops, on the pretext that there has already been a crushing defeat in Syria.
But Trump's decision was met with criticism from Western allies similar to France. He also angered the Kurdish people's protection units, which form the strength of Syria's democratic forces that control large areas in northeastern Syria and Chen for months - supported by the international coalition - In Deir Ezzor countryside.
In a related context, a senior Israeli official said that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will ask US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to slow the US withdrawal from Syria, according to Bloomberg reported.
The Israeli official said that President Trump had agreed to a request from Netanyahu to withdraw US troops from Syria gradually. He explained that Netanyahu will meet the US Secretary of State Tuesday in Brazil, to discuss the matter on the sidelines of the inauguration of Brazilian President-elect Javier Paulsonaro.
