PROELIUM LAW WEEKLY PICINTSUM – 13 December 2017
The Proelium Law weekly picture intelligence summaries (PICINTSUMS) for the use of our clients, colleagues and contacts are now released. Focusing on Iraq/Syria, Libya and Afghanistan/Pakistan these reports will be updated weekly on a Wednesday.
‘During the first visit to Syria of a Russian Head of State since 2010, Vladimir Putin announced a partial withdrawal of the estimated 3,000- 6,000 troops in Syria following the defeat of ISIS. The statement echoes speeches made in 2016 declaring the withdrawal of troops which failed to materialize.
Russia is highly unlikely to withdraw before a reduction in US forces, a prospect strongly rebutted by US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis who claims the US “will not walk away”. The US declared 900 troops in Syria in April 2017, in November there were 2,000 troops in a clear message that the US will remain in Syria post-ISIS’.
