A spokesman for the Iraqi Armed Forces, Yahya Rassoul, said on Saturday that there were no NATO combat troops in the Ain al-Assad cantonment in Anbar province. He said there were only a handful of troops in the cantonment as advisers to help Iraqi forces.
A spokesman for the Iraqi forces added that foreign combat units had completely evacuated the Ain al-Assad cantonment and handed over their weapons, armored vehicles and military equipment in some of the cantonments to the Iraqi army.
Yahya Rassoul said foreign troops serving as advisers were in support of Iraqi forces. He said the cantonment was currently controlled by the Iraqi Armed Forces.
It is noteworthy that according to the bill passed in the Iraqi parliament, US uniformed terrorists have to leave Iraq by the end of this year. Coins
