James Jeffrey calls on Germany to send ground troops to Syria

The United States has asked Germany to support the war against Daesh mercenaries' remnants by sending ground troops to support SDF in north-east of Syria.

US envoy to Syria James Jeffrey told the German news agency: "We want ground troops from Germany to replace our soldiers in part, noting that he expects to get a response before the end of this month.

James Jeffrey wants the German government to send training troops, logistical experts and technical workers from the Bundeswehr (German army).

US President Donald Trump announced in December plans to withdraw all 2,000 US troops from north and east of Syria before deciding to keep 400 troops to help stabilize the area along the Iraq-Syria border.

Since then, the United States has been seeking additional support from its 80 allies in an alliance to fight Daesh mercenaries, including Germany, as US troops begin withdrawing.
