The United States military has withdrawn its first military ground equipment from Syria in the past few days, CNN reported.
The network quoted a US administration official as saying that some shipments had already moved, but did not explain - due to security concerns - the nature of the shipments or the way they were flown or flown.
The US official declined to say where the equipment was in Syria prior to its transfer, although it is likely to be in the north of Syria.
The Wall Street Journal also quoted Pentagon officials as saying that Washington's plans to withdraw from Syria had not changed, and that the ministry had not received orders otherwise.
The same sources said that withdrawal plans were being dealt with, and that dozens of infantry soldiers had gone to Syria to help pull troops out of their areas of concentration, and that military ships led by the amphibious warship "Kirsarg" went to the area to provide support as soon as the troops left.
The ship is carrying hundreds of marines as well as helicopters and other types of military aircraft.
Last December, US President Donald Trump announced the decision to withdraw his troops from Syria after what he called "historic victories" against a militant organization, but reiterated that the decision to withdraw would be "at an appropriate pace."
The decision was opposed by persons close to Trump, most notably Defense Secretary James Matisse and the US envoy to the international coalition, Brit McGovern, who announced their resignation after the announcement.
