The United States has sent ground troops and a group of warships to Syria to help pull its troops out, the Wall Street newspaper reported, quoting sources.
The ground forces on its way to Syria will help pull out US troops, while ships will provide troops if they are in danger, the sources said.
The group was headed by the US Navy landing ship Kirasarj, carrying hundreds of Marines and a number of helicopters.
A US official confirmed earlier that the United States began withdrawing its equipment from Syria, but has not yet begun the process of withdrawing troops.
The Associated Press quoted the unnamed official as saying that the withdrawal of the equipment was part of the process of starting the withdrawal of troops from Syria.
