US coalition in Iraq begins to leave some military bases

The US military, as well as members of the international coalition led by the United States, will soon leave the territory of several military bases located in Iraq. The first abandoned military base will be al-Qa'im. This is stated in the press service of the Central Command (CENTCOM) of the US Armed Forces.


According to the report, the US-led coalition to combat the Islamic State-banned terrorist group in Russia will leave Al-Qaim’s Iraqi base in the coming days. At the same time, it is specified that the base personnel and military personnel, as well as military and auxiliary equipment, will not be withdrawn from Iraq, but will simply be relocated to other military bases.

Today is a significant day for the coalition and our Iraqi partners. The al-Qa'im base served an important role in the fight against IS (...) Based on its success in combating this group, the coalition, in coordination with the Iraqi government, will redeploy personnel and equipment to other bases during this year.

- said the representative of the coalition, Brigadier General Vincent Barker, adding that the US military and their allies will leave Al-Qaim base in the coming days.

Earlier, BBC News reported that coalition forces would leave the base at al-Qa'im, the Karaya air base (Key West) south of Mosul, and the Kirkuk air base known as Camp Renegade. The reason for this was called "victory over the IS" by CENTCOM, but military experts are inclined to believe that the main reason for the redeployment of coalition forces and forces led by the United States was the shelling of the Et-Tange (twice) and Besmayi military bases.

      The fact (or not the fact) of the departure of amers from the indicated bases will show whether the experts were right / wrong ...

        They sat for 20 years. They drew everything that was a stir. And today, suddenly, a fighter became. A terrible horror story was drawn. With Khmenayim 4 drying home pilots. It seems to be about their business. But the military experts are afraid that they were afraid of rocket attacks.

                  By the way.
                  After the missile attacks, Google and Yandex erased the Al-Qaim base from their cards ...
                  There are no more such maps on the maps ...

          Apparently rotation. Many flew in. In early March, several aircraft from Russia flew at the base.

    The reason for this in CENTCOM called "victory over the IG"

    Hollywood has already been ordered a documentary, but there is a coronovirus, so there will be no filming of victory wink

      Trump is very depressing when the bases are not profitable, and the countries in which they are located do not want to pay for "protection from enemies." wink

    The first poultice is 109 shell-shocked, the second poultice is 3-200x and 12-300x and the mattresses begin to understand that for some reason the "liberated" Iraqis do not like their "liberators" and, speaking in obscene and cultural language, offer to "go away"

    however, military experts are inclined to believe that the main reason for the redeployment of coalition forces and assets led by the United States was the shelling of the military bases of Et-Tange (twice) and Besmayi.

    Yeah, the Middle East, this is not the Polish-Ukrainian-Baltic "licks".

    As if this evacuated base from Iraq did not turn out to be a new American base on the oil fields of Syria.
