The military bases where the withdrawn us army units were located have now been handed over to the Afghan government.
The number of US military personnel in Afghanistan has been reduced to just over eight thousand people. This was stated by Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman.
The troops were withdrawn in accordance with an agreement between Washington and the Afghan extremist Taliban movement, Hoffman recalled.
вЂњIn accordance with this agreement, the US agreed to reduce its forces in Afghanistan to 8,600 people and withdraw troops from five bases. We have fulfilled this obligation, вЂњ he stressed.
According to a Pentagon spokesman, five military bases that housed the withdrawn us army units have now been handed over to the Afghan government.
As reported, on June 5, the US military attacked the Taliban for the first time since the beginning of the truce. American aircraft launched two strikes on extremist positions in the provinces of Farah and Kandahar.
