Meanwhile, the Pentagon is slated to announce in the coming days that there are already 2,000 U.S. soldiers inside Syria. The Pentagon has previously claimed there are only 500 U.S. soldiers inside Syria. This comes as the U.S. is reportedly ending its strategy of arming Syrian Kurdish fighters, who were the main on-the-ground fighting force in the months-long U.S. campaign that pushed ISIS out of Raqqa. Turkey has opposed the U.S. backing of the Syrian Kurds.
