The US coalition in Iraq left another military base

29

The United States continues to relocate its forces in Iraq. US troops handed over to the Iraqi army the K-1 air base in the Kirkuk area. This was reported by the command of the US international coalition to combat the "Islamic State" (banned in Russia).

The K-1 military airbase near the city of Kirkuk came under the control of the Iraqi army. The transfer ceremony took place today, March 29, at the base. At the same time, the US military said it had transferred $ 1 million worth of property to Iraqis.

Today, March 29, the ceremony of handing over the special zone of the international coalition at the Kirkuk airbase (K-1) from the united operational group of the operation "Unshakable Determination" to Iraqi forces took place

- the statement says the coalition.



Earlier this week, the U.S. military handed over to the Iraqi army Kayar airbase in the province of Ninewa in northern Iraq, and before that - the al-Qaim military base on the border with Syria.

The coalition command claims that the redeployment is carried out according to a pre-approved plan and is not related to recent attacks on military bases in Iraq. It is reported that during 2020, several more military bases formerly owned by the US international coalition will be transferred to the Iraqi military.

    US Coalition in Iraq Left Another Military Base

    But what about the US threat to organize operations to destroy the pro-Iranian partisan groups in Iraq ... somehow it does not fit together.

      Do you want to get the logic in the actions of the Trump administration? laughing
      If only such news went sequentially and in one direction.
      And we will leave the "destruction" of the pro-Iranian groups to the pro-Iranian groups

              And here, Iraqis have permanent guidance problems. Maybe with a decrease in presence, accuracy will increase. I hope

                A dozen specialists from an unnamed country will quickly rectify this situation ... there would be political will.

        Maybe of course ... the United States itself will only get worse ... the Iranians are beasting with each killed by their general as a result of an air raid ... in response there are shelling of American targets.

      In Trump’s brains, victory has already taken place!
      The enemies of America are crushed to dust.
      Iranians are kneeling on the verge of a viral catastrophe.
      North Koreans hid in bomb shelters and whined plaintively.
      ISIS killed by states are decaying in the Syrian sands ...
      It doesn't matter that it's a lie. The main thing is loot. Reducing the cost of maintaining databases.
      Let them be cleaned. In 2003, we walked for free to Baghdad.
      Enough.
      Looted. They scoffed at me. They were commanded ...

    When Trump was taken to Iraq, or rather to an American base, the Iraqi prime minister said: "You are saying that Trump flew to an American military base. There are no American military bases in Iraq! There are Iraqi military bases where some American and non-American soldiers are stationed."

    At the same time, the US military said it had transferred $ 1 million worth of property to Iraqis.
    But how many millions of dollars did they pump oil in Iraq weakly? In addition, it would be nice to give figures of damage resulting from US military operations. This is not counting the huge casualties.
