Israeli forces shoot, injure Palestinian girl in W Bank

British special forces soldiers seriously hurt by IS missile

Bolton made the remarks during a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

John Bolton told journalists travelling with him on a trip to Israel that the United States wanted a guarantee from Turkey that Kurds in Syria would be protected, the USA news outlet said.

According to the official, the guarantees include giving assurance to avoid military action in Syria unless fully coordinated with Washington.

Another prominent administration official has announced his departure since President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of all USA troops in Syria.

In a tweet last month, he said all 2000 United States soldiers in Syria would be brought home immediately, but he has now told reporters he never intended U.S. troops would leave overnight. The Americans are said to be concerned that China will use the port to improve its standing in the Middle East and potentially gather intelligence on U.S. interests. The two soldiers have been airlifted to hospital by a U.S. helicopter.

He went on to say: "Iran, Russia hate ISIS more than we do".

"We've won against ISIS", he said at the time.

"It's going to be a different environment after we leave, there is no question about that", Bolton said.

Christian Eriksen: Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says deal would be 'fantastic'
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino accepts that Christian Eriksen has the right to ponder a future away from the club.

He told reporters there was no timetable for a U.S. withdrawal from Syria but that there was not an unlimited commitment.

Bolton on Sunday also toured the ancient tunnels beneath the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City.

His comments mark the first public confirmation the withdrawal has been slowed, as President Trump faced widespread criticism from allies and the resignation of Defence Secretary Jim Mattis for a policy that was to have been conducted within weeks.

Netanyahu also noted that the United States has also backed Israel's right to defend herself, "which we exercise constantly", he said. Turkey hates ISIS, maybe not as much as we do, but these are countries that hate ISIS, and they can do a little bit of the fighting in their neighborhood also because we're fighting them in their neighborhood.

Bolton was expected to explain that some US troops based in Syria to fight ISIL will shift to Iraq with the same mission and that the al-Tanf base would remain.

During a Christmas visit to troops in Iraq, Trump said he would deny any request from the military to extend the mission in Syria.

On Tuesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will begin a week-long tour of the Middle East created to reassure allies in the region.

"Part of what we want to see is no vacuum in northeast Syria that malign forces can take advantage of, so that will be a big part of discussions with the Turks", Bolton said. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, called it a "disaster in the making" and said transferring security to Russian and Turkish forces could endanger the Kurds, as well as prospects for future alliances.

Sergeant Matt Tonroe of 3rd Battalion the Parachute Regiment was killed while embedded with United States forces in Syria when they were caught by an explosion in March 2018.
