Syrian rebels have warned that the decision by the US government to withdraw its troops from the country will lead to the revival of the war.

The US-backed, Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said in a statement that an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias from northern and eastern Syria will negatively affect the campaign against terrorism.

“It will give terrorism the momentum to recover and conduct a terrorist campaign in the region” and create “a political and military vaccum in the area, leaving its people between the claws of hostile parties,” it said.
