U.S. officials have completed the transfer of Bagram airbase to Afghan forces.
The transfer of Bagram airbase to Afghan forces was completed after an extensive process without any fanfare. Bagram’s new commander confirmed that the U.S. forces had vacated the base completely. He said the U.S. also left behind small ammunition for weapons and took away heavy weapons.
However, the Biden administration has plans to maintain a small force within Afghanistan to carry out counterterrorism strikes without U.S. troops on the ground.
