BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – During his weekly cabinet meeting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the U.S. decision to withdrawal their forces from Syria will not change his nation’s policy in regards to fighting Hezbollah and Iran in the region.

“The decision to withdraw 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria will not change our consistent policy: We will continue to act against Iran’s attempts to entrench itself militarily in Syria, and to the extent necessary, we will even expand our actions there.” Netanyahu stated, as quoted by the Haaretz online publication.

However, Netanyahu assured those attending his cabinet meeting that Israel will continue to work with the U.S. in the region.

“I would like to reassure those who are concerned. Our cooperation with the US will continue in full and finds expression in many areas: Operations, intelligence and many other security spheres,” Netanyahu added.

There are very few "US troops" in Syria. What are there are spec-ops & mercs. None of them are leaving. Trump is pulling a flim flam for the gullible in order to take credit for fulfilling a campaign promise of bringing the troops home. He's got his eyes on the next election.
