- US Withdrawing Forces from Region Despite Contrary Claims: Military Sources
Informed military sources tell Press TV that the United States has started pulling its troops out of the region since Saturday, despite claims to the contrary.
The sources said Sunday the US has withdrawn its combat troops from Kuwait while C-5 and C-17 military transport aircraft have flown about 700 guards into the region to reinforce protection of American diplomatic missions.
The new revelation came despite prior announcements by American authorities that the US President Donald Trump’s administration has decided to shore up the country’s military presence in the Middle East.
It also followed recent assassination of Iran’s Quds Force commander Lieutenant Qassem Soleimani and his companions, including deputy commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in Baghdad.
