Pentagon withdraws forces from Syria


The Pentagon has announced the retreat of aircraft-carrier USS Nimitz and of guided-missile destroyer USS Graveley from the Eastern Mediteranean.

The only war vessels left in this region are one aircraft-carrier (USS Harry Truman), two destroyers (USS Stout and USS Ramage) and one cruiser (USS Monterey).

The United States are therefore reverting to the level of deployment they had before the Syrian chemical weapons crisis.
