The US military is preparing to withdraw all of its forces from northeastern Syria, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal that US officials have started telling partners in northeastern Syria about the plans to immediately pull all American forces out of the area.

The US-led coalition and its majority-Kurd Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) allies have ramped up a campaign against the remnants of Daesh holed up in several towns east of the Euphrates River.
