Strikes of Iraqi Resistance Forcing US Occupation to Withdraw Thousands of Soldiers
A spokesman for the US-led international coalition, Colonel Wayne Marto, announced that the US military has completed the withdrawal of more than two thousand soldiers from Iraq, bringing the number from 5,200 to less than 3,000 soldiers remaining in the country. Amid the escalation of the Iraqi resistance against the military bases and columns.
Although Colonel Marto announced that the US military had fewer than 3000 troops in Iraq, a Pentagon spokeswoman issued a statement on Tuesday that seemed to indicate that the withdrawal was continuing.
The report stated that the US withdrew from eight bases in Iraq, including Camp Taji, where two American soldiers were killed and three others were wounded in separate missile attacks this year, while US forces are now operating from three bases in the country.”
