Transit only: US troops pulled out of Syria & moved to Iraq are now asked OUT of the country

US forces that crossed into Iraq after pulling out from Syria can only use its territory for transit and do not have permission to stay, the Iraqi military said on Tuesday.

Hundreds of military vehicles carrying American troops crossed into the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq in a long convoy on Monday.

The number of US forces in the country remains a sensitive and politicized issue after the war that some Iraqis considered to be a US occupation.
