BAGHDAD, The US President Donald Trump's Administration withdrew all its aid from northwestern Syria in a move it said showed the United States planned to withdraw quickly from Syria once it had defeated the militant of Daesh organization.

"The Administration will cut tens of millions of dollars from past US-backed efforts to counter violent extremism, support independent organizations, independent media and support education," CBS News quoted unnamed administration officials as saying.

The network said that the decision was made in the past few weeks after Trump asked for a review of all US aid to Syria./ End
