WASHINGTON—The U.S. military is preparing to withdraw its forces from Syria, people familiar with the matter said Wednesday, a move that marks an abrupt reversal of the American military strategy in the Middle East.

U.S. officials began informing partners in northeastern Syria of their plans to begin an immediate pullout of American forces from the region where they have been trying to wrap up the campaign against Islamic State, the people said.

 

“The Pentagon has an order to get to move troops out of Syria as quickly as possible, “ a U.S. official said.

The move follows a call last week between President Trump and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has threatened to launch an assault on America’s Kurdish partners in Syria.:snip:

ISIS kills 700 prisoners in Syria

BEIRUT — The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Wednesday that Islamic State militants had executed nearly 700 prisoners in nearly two months in eastern Syria.

The UK-based war monitoring group said the prisoners were among 1,350 civilians and fighters whom Islamic State had been holding in territory near the Iraqi border.

The jihadists control a shrinking strip of land east of Syria’s Euphrates River around the town of Hajin, which US-backed forces entered this month.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), led by the Kurdish YPG militia, has battled Islamic State there for several months with the help of US air power and special forces.:snip:
