U.S. troops are leaving northern Syria.
Confirmation of the move came from Defense Secretary Mark Esper. On Fox News Sunday, Esper said the number of troops being moved out of the region is less than a thousand.
He declined to provide an exact timeline.
Esper said the top priority is on making sure the troops are safely removed.
Meanwhile, Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria are striking a deal with the Syrian Army to fight back against the invasion by Turkish forces.
Turkish troops started moving into Northern Syria after the White House announced last Sunday that U.S. forces were pulling out of the area.
Kurdish forces had fought alongside the U.S. in the fight against ISIS.
