The U.S.-led coalition withdrew in the morning of October 16 from the Kharab Ashk military base in the eastern Aleppo countryside.

According to the Hawar News Agency (ANHA), the coalition destroyed the large base after completing the withdrawal process.

“Coalition forces destroyed the base after moving as much as it could equipment out of it,” the agency’s report reads.

The agency, which is affiliated with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), released a video showing the withdrawal process. The footage shows black smoke rising from the base, which was located inside the Lafarge cement factory.

Kharab Ashk was one of the first major U.S. bases in Syria. Dozens of U.S. and even French troops were deployed in the base, which also hosted several attack and transportation helicopters of the coalition air force.

The coalition began withdrawing its troops from northeastern Syria earlier this month under orders from President Donald Trump. The withdrawal facilitated a Turkish-led offensive against the U.S.-backed SDF in the region.
