American forces are carrying out in the current period 3-4 joint operations with Syrian Democratic Forces every week against ISIS terrorist mercenaries, the general mentioned.
The general did not say how long U.S. forces would remain in Syria, but said, "I honestly don't know how long we'll be here, and I have no instructions other than to continue working with our partners here."
In a response to journalists' questions, the general added that U.S. armed forces would be ready to deal with various situations in the country as they evolve in the future. "Now we are giving priority to the process of completely eliminating ISIS," he said.
