This happened despite President Trump's insistence on "bringing our soldiers home". Newsweek claimed that a tank brigade of 30 Abrams tanks would be sent to eastern Syria to protect the strategic oil fields in the region. On Thursday Trump tweeted that the oil fields "never" fall into the hands of the terrorist group ISIS.
In a post on his Twitter account, the President said: "The oil fields that were discussed in my speech on Turkey / Kurds yesterday were held by the IS until the United States took over them with the help of the Kurds.
"We will never allow a restored IS to have these fields!"
In a White House speech on Wednesday, he added, "We have secured the oil, and so a small number of US troops will remain in the area where they have the oil.
"And we will protect it and we will decide what we will do with it in the future. "
Trump then justified his decision to recall the majority of US troops, insisting that the US had already paid a sufficiently high price in the ongoing conflict.
He said, "Let someone argue about this long-blooded sand.
"Eight years later Following President Obama's unfortunate push for regime change, US troops in Syria are still there.
"More than half a million people are dead, hundreds of thousands are seriously injured and millions more Syrians have been displaced.
Erdogan defies Trump and Putin when Turkey and the Kurds resume the feud US support they received.
He tweeted that he had spoken with the Supreme General of the Syrian Democratic Forces and commented, "I enjoyed my conversation with General Mazloum Abdi very much.
"He appreciates what we have done, and I appreciate what the Kurds have done.
"Maybe it's time for the Kurds to travel to the oil region!"
However, high-ranking Kurdish personalities have accused the Americans of "betrayal".
Earlier this week in Turkey and Russia, a "Histo" reached an agreement aimed at keeping Kurdish troops from the Syrian border to Turkey.
Under the plan, Russian and Turkish troops will conduct joint patrols to ensure Kurdish fighters will not return to abandoned areas.
In addition, Kurdish militants will have to withdraw from the cities of Manbij and Tal Rifat, both of which are located outside the current conflict zone.
Russian and Syrian soldiers are also deployed in areas currently under occupation are not occupied by the Turkish military, carry out joint patrols. [1
