BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The U.S. military has withdrawn more equipment from Syria as they continue to clear out their bases inside the country.
According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the U.S. transported a new batch of their military equipment from Syria to neighboring Iraq.
The U.S. military withdrawal reportedly took place at the Al-Rmelan Base in the Al-Hasakah Governorate, which is located in Syria’s northeastern region.
The SOHR withdrawal consisted of “10 machines with teams of mine engineering, accompanied by 150 members, where they withdrew from al-Rmelan military base which includes a landing platform for helicopters, which was one of the first military bases established for the International Coalition on the Syrian territory after its military intervention in Syria on the 23rd of September 2014.”
“Reliable sources told the Syrian Observatory that similar withdrawals are expected to take place in the coming days and weeks in the form of small groups, which will withdraw sequentially from several bases and locations of the US Forces east of Euphrates River, the Syrian Observatory also learned that the land on which the American bases were built had been purchased from its former civilian owners for double their values, and the bases were heavily fortified in terms of construction, logistics, and security and other military aspects,” they continued.
