US forces will stay in Syria indefinitely, a Pentagon spokesman has said. There is no legal justification for the US presence in the county which has endured a deadly six-year conflict and partial occupation by Islamic State.

“We are going to maintain our commitment on the ground as long as we need to, to support our partners and prevent the return of terrorist groups,” Eric Pahon said Tuesday.

The Pentagon admitted last week that it has 1,720 troops in Syria, more than three times as many as it had previously acknowledged.
