The Pentagon commented on "conflicting figures" on the number of troops in Syria

The Pentagon is aware of the discrepancies in these agencies regarding the number of US troops in Syria, with information published on the agency’s website, reports RIA News Comment of the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the USA Adrian Rankin-Galloway.




We know that there are conflicting numbers on the website of the Ministry of Defense Data Center,
Rankin-Gloway told the agency.

According to the Pentagon, “503 troops are stationed in Syria, while calculations on the agency’s website indicate 1720 soldiers,” he noted.

A representative of the Ministry explained that the information of the Data Center of the Ministry of Defense is not necessarily official.

This data can usually be exaggerated or underestimated due to delays in tracking systems for the arrival or departure of temporarily deployed personnel,
added on.

Earlier, the head of the Pentagon, Mattis, said that the UN "practically allowed" the US military presence in Syria, since it had adopted resolutions against the IG group (banned in the Russian Federation). According to him, American troops will remain in the republic to support a diplomatic solution to the crisis in the country.

    "Earlier, Pentagon chief Mattis said the UN" practically allowed "the US military presence in Syria."

    As a rule, these data can be exaggerated or underestimated due to delays in the tracking systems for the arrival or departure of temporarily deployed personnel.

    Well, yes, I would also recall statistical errors ... A storyteller.

            I have a purely Russian idea: let the sober people jump through the windows, we rob the local wine-vodka store, pour all the alcohol into our containers, throw the empty one up and jump out and lightly sprinkle them for a smell - voila! The local police have: a crowd of robbers who have drunk to death and because of this staged a massive jump out of the windows. We have: trophy alcohol. So how? lol

    The representative of the agency explained that the information of the Ministry of Defense Data Center is not necessarily official. It is not necessarily official information that the United States is fighting ish-forbidden in the Russian Federation
