Protests against US army’s withdrawal from Syria

After Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, made it clear in a phone call that his forces were about to invade Syria to push back Kurdish forces that Turkey considers terrorists, President Trump ordered 1,000 U.S. troops in Syria to withdraw from Syria and move to Iraq. The Syrian Defense Forces have deep ties to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, which is designated as a terror group by both Turkey and the U.S.



The U.S military withdrawal sparked angry protests from Syrians. The protesters started throwing tomato and potato at US army convoy as they claimed to have sacrificed 11 000 of their loved ones in U.S campaign against ISIS in Syria, and now, U.S is leaving them alone. “Where is your promise?” They shouted.

A tiny fraction of U.S troops are still working with Syrian Kurdish fighters to secure the area’s oilfields so the oil doesn’t fall under the control of ISIS or other groups.

Chris Van Hollen wrote on Twitter: “Trump brags about protecting “the oil”, but will leave our Syrian Kurdish allies to be slaughtered by Turkish-led jihadi thugs. This is a dark day for American values and a big win for our enemies. Congress must demand an end to this historic sellout.”
