US troops leave Bagram airbase in Afghanistan

This was announced on condition of anonymity by a source at the Pentagon.

US troops left one of the largest military bases in Afghanistan on Friday as part of a peace deal with the Taliban, a senior US Department of Defense source said.

“All US military and NATO troops have left Bagram airbase,” the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The closure of the Bagram airbase, located 65 kilometers north of Kabul, put an end to the US military presence at a key Afghan airfield, which was often used to launch air strikes against the Taliban and other radical Islamist groups during the war in Afghanistan.

The base will be transferred to the Afghan Ministry of Defense.
