BEIRUT (Reuters) - The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces said on Thursday a White House decision to withdraw from Syria will allow an Islamic State revival and threaten the battle in eastern Syria.
The Kurdish-led force said pulling U.S. troops and officials out of its region would have “dangerous implications” on international stability.
This would also “create a political and military vacuum in the area, leaving its people between the claws of hostile parties,” the statement said.
