Pentagon likely to announce US has 2,000 troops in Syria, not 500 - officials --Military set to acknowledge accounting system has underreported presence | 24 Nov 2017 | The Pentagon is likely to announce in the coming days that there are about 2,000 US troops in Syria, rather than the 500 the military has said are in the war-torn country. Two US officials detailed the new figure on Friday, as the military acknowledges that an accounting system has underreported the size of forces on the ground. The US military has publicly said it has about 500 troops in Syria, mostly supporting the Syrian Democratic Forces group of Kurdish and Arab militias fighting fomenting Islamic State in the north of the country.
