ISTANBUL (Reuters) – A U.S. diplomatic team that was working on stabilisation projects in northeast Syria has left the country, a U.S. official said on Monday, a day after Washington said it was withdrawing 1,000 troops from Syria.

The official said the troops were still in Syria but early phases of the withdrawal had started, without giving details. Two U.S. officials said on Sunday the United States is considering plans to withdraw the bulk of the troops from northern Syria in the coming days.
