A spokesman for the National Security Council declined to comment about Bolton's call to Kamel, who is widely regarded as one of the most powerful figures in the Egyptian regime, said the WSJ, before confirming that other USA officials acknowledged the call.

President Trump has asked several Gulf states to pay up to stabilize the region in the wake of ISIS's defeat.

The US now has 2,000 soldiers in Syria, with Trump calling for their return home, meanwhile, there are still around 10,000 IS militants operating mainly in two locations in a pocket south of the Syrian town of Al-Hasakah and in a 25-mile stretch along the Euphrates near the town of Abu Kamal, according to the WSJ.

Prior to Saturday's missile strikes, Trump had expressed reluctance about a long-term U.S. presence in Syria.

In April, the U.S. reportedly began drafting plans to increase its military presence in Syria.

The White House is seeking to assemble a coalition of Arab forces to replace USA troops in Syria to stabilise regions liberated from Islamic State.

Sixers fall to Heat at home, series even at 1-1
Last night's loss to the Heat snapped Philly's 17-game winning streak as the series now shifts to South Beach for Games 3 and 4. He is still recovering from an orbital bone fracture in his left eye, suffered just before the end of the regular season.

The comments were in response to a Wall Street Journal report on Monday that US President Donald Trump's administration was seeking to assemble an Arab force, including troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, to replace a US military contingent in Syria. There are about 2,000 American troops deployed inside Syria, and Trump has expressed a desire to withdraw at least some of them this year.

The mission of the regional force would be to work with the local Kurdish and Arab fighters the US has been supporting to ensure Islamic State can not make a comeback and preclude Iranian-backed forces from moving into former Islamic State territory, USA officials say.

National Security Adviser John Bolton has also reportedly reached out to Egyptian officials about the initiative.

According to the Washington Post, the US's goal is to prevent Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his Russian and Iranian allies from creeping into newly-liberated areas and establishing control while the United States continues to battle the remaining dissidents.

And Charles Lister, a Senior Fellow at the Middle East Institute, cast doubt over the project, saying: "There is just no precedent or established basis for this shaping into a successful strategy".

"We have asked our partners to take greater responsibility for securing their home region, including contributing larger amounts of money", Trump said Friday night.
