The united states military has finally left Afghanistan's Bagram airfield after nearly 20 years , reported the Associated continue Friday.

The Bagram airbase in Afghanistan has been the location of the US military's war against the Taliban and therefore the al-Qaida terrorist outfits. It remained staffed by the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing of the US Force for nearly 20 years, while rotating units of the United States Army , the Navy, and therefore the United States Marine Corps also used the airfield as a base.

Although the US troops have now officially withdrawn from the Bagram airbase, one among its top commanders, General Austin S Miller, “still retains all the capabilities and authorities to guard the forces,” said the officials to AP on the condition of anonymity.

Earlier, US president Joe Biden had promised that US troops would go away Afghanistan completely by 9/11 . the present withdrawal of the two ,500-3,500 US troops from the Bagram airbase may be a clear indication of a follow-up thereon promise. it had been clear soon after the mid-April announcement that the US was ending its “forever war” that the departure of U.S. soldiers and their estimated 7,000 NATO allies would be nearer to Independence Day , when America celebrates its Independence Day .
