The U.S. has reduced the number of partnered patrols in northern Syria with Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the Pentagon said on Tuesday, after Turkish strikes hit the region ahead of a feared ground invasion by Ankara. Pentagon spokesman Brigadier General Patrick Ryder told reporters that while operations against the Islamic State had not stopped, the patrols had to be reduced because the SDF had reduced the number of their own patrols. Ryder added that U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin would speak with his Turkish counterpart soon.
