[size=36]The Pentagon: We do not exclude sending additional forces to Syria if necessary[/size]
"I think so, and if not, we will send additional troops," Isber said at a security forum in California, when asked if the United States has sufficient strength in Syria.
He added that he is in constant consultation with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Central Command of the US Armed Forces, to provide all that is needed to complete the tasks.
On Thursday, US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said it was not excluded that the United States would continue to reduce its troop presence in Syria.
US Defense Secretary Mark Esper said in a press statement: "If an allied NATO member decides to send 50 people, I can withdraw 50 people."
According to Esber, the United States has completed withdrawing its forces from northeastern Syria. He pointed out that Washington maintains the possibility of inserting and removing a small number of American military personnel, but the total number of US military personnel present in the region in the foreseeable future will be around 600 people.
US President Donald Trump, after Turkey began its military operation, announced his decision regarding the withdrawal of US forces from northeastern Syria. Then he announced his other decision regarding American forces staying in eastern Syria to dig oil fields.
