US ends aid for northwest Syria: report


ㅤ”The Trump administration is reportedly pulling assistance from northwest Syria as it seeks to set the U.S. up for a swift withdrawal from the country once the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is defeated.
ㅤCBS News reported Friday that the U.S. will stop providing tens of millions of dollars to stabilize areas of northwest Syria that have been cleared of ISIS control, a decision made following an inter-agency process in recent weeks.
ㅤThat funding supported efforts to counter violent extremism, strengthen independent society and advance education in the region, among other things, according to the report.”
