The Pentagon announced the "approximate" number of its troops in Iraq and Syria


Our number in Syria and Iraq is about five thousand,
White told reporters during a briefing.

This number is approximately
she added.

At the same time, the representative of the military department refused to name the number of troops in each of these countries.

Recall, the United States and the coalition of Western countries led by them, since November 2014, has been conducting an anti-terrorist operation against the Islamic State (IG, banned in Russia) on the territory of Iraq.

In late April, the Pentagon announced the end of major operations against ISIS in Iraq.

In Syria, the Americans are also under the pretext of fighting terrorism, but without the consent of the local government.

    due to the constant strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, it is not possible to calculate the exact number of goals ..

      In connection with the attacks of the Russian Air Force on ISIS, the US military began to defend no one. So they are reducing their numbers.

      It would be better if they could remember how they protested against the war in Vietnam. Although it is doubtful, there have been so many years of zombie people who already consider horror films about zombies a reality.

            Kh.Z whom did you encounter, but looks like LOL ... Some Wagnerites, private military companies ... there’s only one bullshit in my head. There is no PMC in Russia because there is no such law, but nobody violates the law will not go! All of these PMCs are MTRs operating regularly in the structure of the Ministry of Defense ... but like you maximalists who believe in legends for PMCs, they are accepted, well! It suits everyone! And MTR-because of secrecy, and dreamy youths ...

            You hardly came across the Green Berets, this is a land element of the US MTR ...

    Total "about 5 thousand"? Okay, multiply by two. No, on 5!
    Compared to the total number of Iranian forces in Syria, there are already more than 80 thousands of people, including commanders and specialists from the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), fighters of the Lebanese Hezbollah, volunteers from Afghanistan and Iraq - “Not enough will be!” ( with) wassat
