Turkish Media 'Exposes' French Bases in Syria Amid US Withdrawal

Days after US President Donald Trump ordered US troops to withdraw from Syria, French European Affairs Minister Nathalie Loiseau said that Paris would maintain its presence in Syria.

A few days after French President Emmanuel Macron expressed “deep regret” over Donald Trump’s decision to pull troops out from Syria, Turkey’s state news agency Anadolu claimed that France would maintain 9 military sites in the country, while the total number of French soldiers deployed in “YPG/PKK-held parts” of Syria east of the Euphrates River amounts to only 200 troops.

 
The deployments reportedly include artillery batteries, technical personnel and special forces units.
