    Earlier in the day, US President Donald Trump said that the time has come to bring American troops in northern Syria back home, adding that the country shouldn't have involved itself deeper in local conflicts.

    The former US secretary of state and Donald Trump's main rival in the 2016 presidential election has lashed out at the US president amid reports of a US troops pull-out from northern Syria, writing on her Twitter page that the move represents a "betrayal".

    ​The Twitter reaction was not long in coming.

    This comes as Turkey is gearing up to clear Kurdish-led militants from Syrian territories east of the Euphrates. In the meantime, the SDF has called it "a stab in the back", claiming that the US had assured the militants there would not be any Turkish offensive in the region. The Kurdish-led militants, however, stressed that they would fight against Turkey's forces without any hesitation.
