U.S. to send special troops to Syria

The White House on Friday confirmed that the United States will send dozens of special operations troops to northern Syria from next month.
That’s a major policy shift for President Barack Obama, who has long resisted to avoid getting dragged into another war in the Middle East.
It also marks the first sustained U.S. troop presence in Syria and raises the risk of American casualties, although officials insisted the forces do not have a combat mission in Syria.
