US forces started to withdraw from their largest base in northern Syria on Sunday, after US Secretary of Defence Mark Esper confirmed they would head to western Iraq to keep fighting against the so-called Islamic State (formerly ISIS).

Footage shows US military vehicles moving near the Syrian village of Tell Brak. A US convoy has been reported to be leaving from the Sarrin military base.

Esper reportedly said on Saturday that under current plans all US troops leaving Syria - some 1,000 soldiers - were headed for Iraq to join an existing 5,000-strong US contingent there. US President Donald Trump has previously vowed to bring US troops home.

Turkey's military offensive, dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring,' began on October 9, days after the White House announced a withdrawal of US troops from the area. Ankara says the aim of the offensive is to establish a 'safe zone' in north eastern Syria.
