BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – Iraq’s Al-Sumaria TV revealed on Tuesday that there has been no significant withdrawal of U.S. forces from the Habbaniyah Base near the city of Al-Qa’im.
Citing a source near the Habbaniyah Base, Al-Sumaria TV reported that the U.S. forces are still at the installation and have not made any attempts to significantly reduce their troops in this part of the Al-Anbar Governorate.
The source called “the media should be careful in conveying this information.”
It is noteworthy that a number of reports surfaced on Monday that said the U.S. forces began withdrawing from the Habbaniyah Base.
However, a video released on Sunday showed the Iraqi security forces taking over an installation near Al-Qa’im, but it wasn’t specified if this was the Habbaniyah Base or another site.
