US Military Continues Training Support for Syrian Security Forces

The U.S. military continues to train local security forces in Syria as part of efforts to stop activities of the Islamic State militant organization, facilitate stabilization and meet campaign objectives in the region.

Syrian security forces are tasked to prevent members of the militant group from escaping the country, integrate local security in liberated areas, protect the population and eliminate potential threats to allies and partners, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

The U.S. and its global coalition allies continue to pursue a shared commitment to destroy the Islamic State militant group and re-stabilize Syrian territories.

DoD also acknowledged security concerns from NATO ally Turkey and assured the U.S. will be transparent about ongoing counterterrorism efforts in Syria.
