Iran Demands U.S. Leave Syria, Damascus Threatens Its Ally

According to Reuters, Iran and Syria on Monday demanded the United States to withdraw its troops from Syria, as the Damascus government threatened to defeat Washington’s Kurdish allies by force.

Their remarks point to the risks of a new escalation in Syria after the defeat of Islamic State, with Assad seeking to retake the two major territories outside his control.

The US said last month it would keep some forces in Syria, reversing its decision to pull them all out once the Islamic State was defeated.
