Pentagon says the U.S. has withdrawn from five bases in Afghanistan


(CNN/WHNT NEWS 19) – The Pentagon announced Tuesday that U.S. Troops have been pulled from several bases in Afghanistan.

U.S. Troops are no longer stationed in five Afghan bases.

The military has also reduced the size of American forces in the war-torn country. The move is part of an agreement made between the US and the Taliban earlier this year.

The deal laid out a 14-month timetable for the withdrawal of US Military Forces, its allies and coalition partners.

The Pentagon did not say how many service members were a part of this withdrawal but they say more than 8,000 still remain in the country.
