U.S. forces have completely withdrawn from their last base in eastern Aleppo, the North Press Agency (NPA) reported on November 3.
“U.S. forces withdrew from their last military base in Sarrin, in the western part of north and eastern Syria, two days after the entry of dozens of trucks and carriers to transport the remaining equipment,” NPA’s report read.
The Sarrin base, which hosted dozens of U.S. soldiers, was one of the biggest coalition bases in eastern Aleppo. The base’s long airstrip was used to supply coalition forces deployed in Aleppo and Raqqa.
Earlier this week, more than 80 empty trucks working for U.S. forces entered Syria from Iraq and headed towards Sarrin base in eastern Aleppo. The trucks departed back to Iraq on November 2 after being loaded with military vehicles and equipment.
By abandoning the Sarrin base, the U.S.-led coalition has completely withdrawn from Kurdish-held areas in eastern Aleppo. Troops of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) as well as Russian Military Police units were deployed in the region last month to help secure it from Turkish attacks.
