U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper has laid out Washington's plan to transfer all U.S. troops recently withdrawn from Syria into western Iraq.
Speaking to reporters en route to the Middle East on Sunday, Esper noted that American forces will continue operations against the Islamic State group to prevent its resurgence.
His comments were the first to specifically detail the plan after leaving Syria and what the ongoing U.S. mission against ISIS could look like.
Esper said he had already discussed with his Iraqi counterpart that more than 700 U.S. troops will be redeployed from Syria to western Iraq, adding the withdrawal could take several weeks.
