US-Backed Kurdish Group Rejects President Trump's Claim That ISIS Has Been Defeated

In response to President Trump’s order, a Kurdish-led US-backed group in Syria has rejected US President, Donald Trump’s claim that the Islamic State jihadist organization has been defeated. It said the withdrawal of American troops would lead to a resurgence of the extremist group.

The group known as the Syrian Democratic Forces, said in a statement that a premature US troop pullout would have dangerous repercussions and a destabilizing effect on the region.

The decision has rattled Washington’s Kurdish allies, who are its most reliable partner in Syria and among the most effective ground forces battling the IS group.

The US move is widely seen as an abandonment of a loyal ally, one that could prompt Turkey to launch a fresh offensive against the Kurds or drive the Kurds into a new alliance with Syrian president Bashar Assad, Iran and Russia.
