GREEN VILLAGE MILITARY OUTPOST (AP) — The top U.S. commander for the Middle Ease is offering reassurances that the U.S. remains committed to its mission in Syria.

He made an unannounced visit to five military bases stretching from northeast Syria to the Middle Euphrates Valley.

He says operations against Islamic State militants are on the rise again, after the U.S. cut back due to the increased tensions with Iran and the need to concentrate on increasing security.
