WASHINGTON (AP) - The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says about 500 or 600 USA troops will remain in Syria to counter Islamic State fighters.
In an ABC interview broadcast on November 10, Milley noted that, after the September 11 attacks in 2001, the original reason USA forces went into Afghanistan was to make sure that the country never again would be a haven for extremists who would attack the United States.
In his first television interview since assuming his role of chairman, Milley said Sunday that the mission remains the same. "In order for that mission to be successful the government of Afghanistan, the Afghan security forces, are going to have to be able to sustain their own internal security to prevent terrorists using their territory to attack other countries, especially the United States". Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell commented that "a precipitous withdrawal of USA forces from Syria would only benefit Russia, Iran, and the Assad regime". Pressure must be maintained on ISIS fighters in the region to avoid "a very real possibility that conditions could be set for a reemergence of ISIS", he said.

CNN previously reported that weeks after President Donald Trump ordered troops out of northern Syria, publicly declaring he was taking "control" of the oil and sending troops and armored carriers to protect it from ISIS, US commanders had lacked clarity on the most basic aspects of their mission, including how and when troops can fire their weapons and what, exactly, that mission was.
Milley said US troops will remain in the Middle Eastern country "for a significant amount of time because it's in our national interest to be there to help out".
"Probably in the 500-ish frame".
There are now several hundred USA troops in Syria.
