Early on October 23, dozens of French, UK and U.S. troops withdrew from a large coalition base in northeast Syria to the Iraqi Kurdistan region, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

“40 soldiers of the American, French and British occupation forces withdrew aboard a military cargo plane from the Ruhaiypah [Robariye] illegal airport in the countryside of al-Malikiyah to Iraq,” the state-run agency’s reporter said.

Located 9km to the southwest of the city of al-Malikiyah, Robariye air strip is usually used to supply U.S.-led coalition troops in al-Hasakah.

A few hours earlier, a convoy consisting of dozens of armored vehicles and trucks of the U.S.-led coalition withdrew from the outskirt of the city of Qamishli to Iraq.

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced earlier this month that the military is withdrawing 1,000 troops from northern Syria “as safely and quickly as possible.” France and the UK quickly followed Washington’s footsteps and began withdrawing their forces from the region.
