Last month, Donald Trump said he had ordered the withdrawal of all USA forces from Syria, where there are believed to be about American 2,000 troops.
The military would not give any detail of the overall timetable for the American withdrawal nor which positions United States troops had begun pulling back from.
The CNN report added that officials it had previously spoken to said the Pentagon wants to signal to the president it is working towards his goals following his withdrawal decision last month. Top U.S. officials were shocked too, among them Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who quit in protest.

Giving a subsequent speech about broader US policy in the Middle East at the American University in Cairo, Pompeo said "now is the time" to bring America's forces out of Syria. Turkey views the Kurdish YPG militia, which forms the core of the SDF force, as a national security threat.
