The US continues to leave hastily its military camps amid the advance of the national government army.
American soldiers destroyed the al-Kulaib air force base in Northern Syria, without waiting for the approach of the Syrian government army there. As reported by the correspondent of the Agency SANA in Hasaka province, at the base, which was previously used to receive and send aircraft and helicopters of the international coalition, including the runway was destroyed.
The publication also indicates that the Americans are hastily evacuating the remaining bases in the province of Hasaka. In particular, we are talking about the military town, which was located near the dam on the Euphrates River.
Last Wednesday, the Americans for the first time used aircraft to eliminate the base in the area of the former cement plant of the French company Lafarge in Raqqa province, indicated the publication Business Insider. Missile strikes F-15 destroyed abandoned equipment and ammunition there. As the former special representative of US President to the anti-terrorist coalition, Brett McGurk told reporters, it was an operation on the principle of “breaking glass in case of emergency.” “Such a scenario applies in the case of an extremely adverse scenario,” he said.
American bases in Syria appeared as the US actively helped the Kurds during the battles with the “Islamic state.” They had to be hastily evacuated after the Turkish army began to attack the Kurds from the North under the pretext of creating a 30-kilometer security zone, and from the West — under an agreement concluded by the Kurds with Damascus with the mediation of Russia — the government army of Bashar al-Assad. As a result, the Americans first had to leave the cities of Manbij and Kobani, and then completely withdraw from the provinces of Aleppo and Raqqa.
It is planned that 700 American troops evacuated from Syria will be further deployed in Iraq.
