Friday December 21, 2018 Kabul (BNA) The Trump administration is reportedly planning to pull roughly half of all U.S. troops out of Afghanistan — likely one of the first steps in ending the 17-year-long war in the country. About 7,000 American troops are expected to be brought home from the country in the coming months. The 14,000 troops currently in Afghanistan are split between counter-terrorism forces and soldiers that are training and advising Afghan fighters. President Trump made the decision at about the same time he decided to withdraw all U.S. forces from Syria, the New York Times reported, citing an unnamed official. One official said the troops could be out by summer, but no final decision has been made. Trump’s decision on Syria caused the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, the Times also reported.
