US to increase troops in Iraq to prevent Islamic State group’s resurgence

Esper said that under the current plan, all US troops leaving Syria will go to western Iraq and military would continue to conduct operations against the Islamic State group to prevent its resurgence in the region.

Russia and Turkey reached an agreement yesterday to share control of Syria’s northeast that requires Kurdish fighters to clear the entire length of the Syria-Turkey border.

The agreement gives Kurdish fighters another 150 hours beginning this afternoon to clear all remaining areas alongside the 440-kilometre Turkey-Syria border.
