U.S. forces have completed their withdrawal from the eastern Aleppo countryside and the northern governorate of al-Raqqa, the al-Mayadeen TV reported on October 20.
Citing Syrian sources, the Lebanese news channel correspondent in Damascus said that U.S. forces had withdrawn from their base near the town of Sarrin in eastern Aleppo.
“U.S. forces withdrew 60 vehicles and trucks from Sarrin air strip in eastern Aleppo countryside,” the correspondent said.
Earlier today, RT released a video showing empty trucks escorted by U.S. armored vehicles heading towards the base to help evacuate equipment. The trucks completed their mission within a few hours apparently.
The Sarrin base, which hosted dozens of U.S. service members, 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.
A day earlier, U.S. forces destroyed their main radar station in western al-Hasakah as a part of the ongoing withdrawal process from northeast Syria. U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said last week that troops are being withdrawn from the region “as safely and quickly as possible.”
