Esper emphasized that the proposal to leave a small number of troops in eastern Syria was meant to give the president "manoeuvr room" and wasn't final. "There has been no decision with regard to numbers or anything like that".
USA forces have withdrawn from several bases in Syria, including from the key town of Manbij and another close to Kobane close to the Turkish border.
Since the US began moving its forces out of the region, the long-time USA allies of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who for years helped the USA battle ISIS while also fending off attacks from Assad's forces, have formed limited partnerships with the Syrian leader's Russian-backed regime.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing operations, said the USA military is not closely monitoring the effectiveness of the cease-fire, but is aware of sporadic fighting and violations of the agreement.
The Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has said aggressive military campaign will continue Afghans reach to a peace political settlement.
Trump said that otherwise U.S. troops are "moving out nicely".

Though Trump has characterized the move as bringing troops home, Esper said Sunday that most forces would be redeployed to western Iraq, where they would continue operations against the Islamic State.
Meanwhile, Trump on Sunday continued to claim that the soldiers were coming home.
Highlighting Iran's efforts to mediate in the disputes between Turkey and Syria, the spokesperson said Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has had contacts with his Syrian, Turkish and Iraqi counterparts in recent days. What's far less debatable is whether he's bringing US troops home - because as the Associated Press reported, "That's not what he's doing". President Trump tweeted the following quote from Esper: "The ceasefire is holding up very nicely". We have secured the oil.
On Thursday, Turkey agreed to a five-day ceasefire in northeast Syria to allow for withdrawal of Kurdish forces.
"The current game plan is for those forces to re-position into western Iraq", Mr Esper said late on Saturday, not ruling out that they would conduct counterterrorism missions from Iraq into Syria.

U.S. soldiers in Syria will soon be moved to neighboring Iraq in order to fight a possible ISIS resurgence in the region.
"All will have to get out, the process will not end before they are out". The Kurdish pull out has so far not extended beyond Ras al-Ayn.
Turkish troops, allied Syrian rebel proxies, the SDF, and soldiers belonging to both the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, and his Russian allies are all now present in the border area after Donald Trump announced he would withdraw United States troops, paving the way for Ankara to launch an attack on the SDF on 9 October. Several hundred will remain in southern Syria at the Al-Tanf outpost.
The U.S. now has more than 5,000 American forces in Iraq, under an agreement between the two countries.
Esper said he will talk with other allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in the coming week to discuss the way ahead for the counter-IS mission.
"We helped the Kurds". "We believe this can only be achieved by restoring the unity of Syria".
