A bill to withdraw its troops from Syria rejected by vast majority in the US Senate.

A bill to withdraw US troops from Syria was presented in the Senate. Only 13 senators voted in favor of it while 84 senators voted against it.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said about it: “Passage of such a resolution would be a gift to Iran and its terrorist network. Driving American forces from the Middle East is exactly what they would like to see. Adopting this short-sighted measure would wreck America’s credibility in the region.
It would encourage Iran’s proxies to open a northern front in the territorial war against Israel. And it would invite America’s adversaries to challenge our military presence throughout the world.”
